RE: Jesse Lee Jones
It appears from the link I sent on the marriage license that Jesse married for a 3rd time to Harriett.

I have a family friend who has "taken up the cause" of family history on the PATTERSON lines and I'll let her know of your connection to us with our Surry County folks.

Finally warming up here versus snow & ice. Then again, it's not Duluth, MN either. :-)

RE: Cyrus Hollister Page
Hi Floyd,
Nice hearing from you again. My sister Alice worked with you years ago about these Civil War Vets and we really appreciated it.
I would love to have Cyrus transferred, and his brother Storrs, and their families in Sunnyside. I sponsored all of them hoping it would make it easier on you!
If you want me to use the edit feature, just let me know.
Thanks again

Re: Photo of French Farrar and Family
I have had some success in dating old photos. Saw this one on French Farrar's memorial in the Elm Springs Cemetery.
Since the boys were older than Alta, the girl in the photo would be Mina born 1882 per her marriage record but 1885 per her headstone. Alta was born in 1898 and does not appear. Mina married in July 1900, age 18 but likely 15. Earl was born Jan or Feb 1887; Denzil was born Nov 1889 and appears to be about five or six years of age. I am guessing that this was taken between 1895 and 1898, just before the birth of Alta. Mina appears to be either 12 or less. Based on her headstone date, she would have been ten or eleven. - dennis

RE: Robert L Salvage Memorial
Transfer made! 'Good to hear that the memorial helped you locate his last resting place. The next time I'm at the cemetery, I'll try to get a photo of his grave marker and add that.

James Farrar
I have added the information you requested to James Farrar's bio. I cannot take credit for the pictures as they were added by others before the memorial was transferred to me. My great great grandfather, John Ingle Farrar, was a brother to James. Glad I could help.

Sorry, but I don't see either names in my files or under my control. I don't remember doing anything with either name.

Roswell C. Hunt
Just wanted to thank you for the very interesting biographical sketch on Roswell C. Hunt. I can fill in some of the gaps for you. He married Minnie (Harris) Harlan in 1908 and then died according to military papers on 15 August 1918. You can go on Family Tree ( and go to ID#KNC1-SX3 to get further details of documentation where he is in 1910, etc. Thanks again, andrea bartley (

RE: Lucius Farrar
The road is Bluestocking Hollow road in Bedford County, TN. Enter this search into Google Maps: Moore Chapel cemetery Bluestocking Hollow Rd. Shelbyville, TN. The church as I understand it, used to be across the road from the cemetery.

Frances E. (Parsons) Shaffer in Sunnyside Cemetery
I am sorry to hear that you have also "retired" from FindAGrave, but totally understand. You posted a pic of Benjamin Shaffer's grave (Find A Grave # 21074779) to FindAGrave in the Sunnyside Cemetery. On his stone is his wife's name - Frances E. with the name WALDIE under her name. After Benjamin's death, Frances married a widower Alexander Waldie (husband of my great aunt Elenor Jones). Frances preceded Alexander in death, reason for the name Waldie under her name. Can you please post the picture that you took of their combined headstone to her Find A Grave memorial # 135605921 which I just entered? I would really appreciate it.

RE: Lucius Farrar
No problem. This is his marker based on census records of where they lived, those in his household are also buried very near him and, I believe he is on one side of the stone and Tennie is on the other. Very neat and well kept cemetery on Blue Stocking Hollow RD. My grandparents former farm is just down the road.

Noticed a mixed up posting. There is a photo posted to Earl Raymond White, 34718476, in Garden of Protection, Lot 6766, Space 1, that was mis posted. Could you remove it and post to the correct location? 94556269, Earl White Jr, in Everlasting Hope, Map 9, Lot 1651, Space 2. Thank you. And thank you for photographing the markers.

Glad you got a picture of the G.A.R. monument at Sunnyside Cemetery in Long Beach when you did. Sadly the bronze plaques have been stolen for their scrap value and now the flagstand looks very sad.

Thank you for the nice photo for his memorial and for the plot location. We really appreciate your time and effort. That nite I reached the limit of available requests for photos which is why I did not put one out for his wife. I have done so now, would you please add the photo to her memorial also? TIA

RE: Albert Gallatin Farrar
You are very welcome! The last time I was there was when I photographed the cemetery. It was neglected. However, not in really bad shape. Since then, I'm pretty sure it has been cleaned up at least once. I'm a member of the Benton County Cemetery Preservation Group and we take an interest in cemeteries such as Farrar. If you are interested in supporting our efforts, just drop me a line and I'll send you some information. Thanks!
