Hill Family at Forest Lawn
FYI - I put on several photo's today for the Hill Family at Forest Lawn. They look like they may be your Family. I also put on a couple that were not listed (unless I missed them), P.L. Hill, Sr and Mildred D. Hill. If they are family, I will be happy to transfer them to you. Thanks, Larry

I don't know if they are the same. Need somebody to check what plot she is buried in. Although they died the same month and year.

detective work
Thanks, I really do get engrossed when linking the families together; 'the chase' of trying to make sure I have the correct records checked out before I do, can be v-e-r-y interesting----- especially when I run into the naming traditions that put several people in the same part of the counties with similar names; I've about lost count of how many William or Nathaniel Talley-s and Heath's there are ;-). Enjoy your Holiday. Edna

findagrave connection,finally
Hi Jeff,
I have been going through all of my back messages on Find A Grave an ran across yours May of 2013...I must have really been ‘out of it’ that morning; because I do not even remember getting it; let alone answering your request on changing the spelling of her name....Oh Man, bummer

Anyway, just to let you know Winking smile I finally got ‘Miss KItty’ attached to her son (his middle name also shows different spellings on Everett, etc.)from her first marriage buried in the Gethsemane Cemetery; but I couldn’t stop there (my husband always has teased me that I should get a detective’s license), I also attached her to her 2nd husband (Mr Aubrey Hay Atkinson with his first wife, Alice)---tracked down what happened to her first spouse and his newer wife(Mary Fannie Croxton) and added that information also...2nd wife remarried to a man with the last named of Paul (his first name has been spelled several ways including Ducalion---someone’s mother or father liked Greek myths, I bet).

You were right about the spelling of Mr Richardson’s first name; I found that half the time it was Phillie and the other half it was Philip....One of the weird things I ran across was that ‘Miss Kitty’ told the people that filled out the Marriage License to Mr Atkinson was that she was a Widow and not Divorced from Phillie for desertion---the kicker was that she married Mr Atkinson 2 days before Phillie really did die...

!The things one finds in ones family trees!!!
Makes everyone more interesting, I just love it...

Again, sorry to take so long in getting back to you
And thanks for making an exciting chase for me yesterday;
(am just waiting for the admin people to process everything that I requested in EDIT)

Have a Good New Year

RE: Lucy Ellen Boulware
Hi Jeff, I went back and checked and where I *thought* I had proof was just other people's unsourced family trees. Drat. I know there's a family Bible out there somewhere but so far I haven't seen it, and that timeframe is really bad for VA death records. I could have sworn I had it documented with the VA Death & Burial Index, 1853-1917, but can't find a thing. Guess you'd better just leave it as it was.

It looks as though we are (at least) related through the Elliot Toler Vaughan line.

RE: Martha Jane Fleet Bowles
I checked out your "cousins" in your virtual cemeteries. I can't figure out our actual relationship, but some of your first and second cousins are also my first and second x several times removed.

Thanks for the super-swift update with note. I appreciate all the work you do on Find a Grave. I feel pretty sure we must be related somehow, just haven't figured it out yet :)

Dr. C.C. Broaddus
I just noticed you had added a listing for my great great grandfather, Dr. CC Broaddus. I have been attempting research on him at the Library of Virginia. I found a newspaper article from Jan. 1901 saying that he had been buried on the grounds of the Western State Asylum and then sometime later, his relatives had him dug up and reburied in the family plot at his home. I could not find a listing for him in the registration records of the asylum. I did find a listing for his daughter, Sallie Broaddus. I am wondering since he was a pretty famous doctor in Caroline, did they keep it a secret that he was a patient at the asylum? I find it very odd they quickly buried him and then his family came to take his body home at a later time. Where did you get your information that he died in 1900? I had assumed this since the article was from Jan. 1901, but cannot find a precise date of death. I guess I will try to get a copy of his death certificate. Thank you for any information and I welcome any correspondence from interested parties or descendants. My Mother, Linda Fuller Miller, her father, Raymond Fuller, his mother Alice Broaddus Fuller, her father, Dr. Cornelius Campbell Broaddus.

Jeff Lovelace
King Family of Washington, DC
Can you help me locate a husband and wife that passed away in DC? It seems that DC has that 50 year rule about obtaining a copy of a Death Certificate, which is keeping me from finding their burial location. Could you access the Obits in the Library?
Please help me if you can.
