Jack Payton # 65457980
In my edit for my great grandpa Jack Payton, I put the death date as May 6 (typo); it should have been May 16 (which I got from his death certificate). Also, the d.c. states his birth as Aug 3 1896 and Lola was the informant. My mother says his birthday was Aug 6 1895 (headstone says 1895). I feel like it is Aug 6 1895 (which I put 3 on the edit and wasn't ready to change the year).

Anyway, I would like to manage this page if you would let me and that way when I get more info I can make the changes and additions. I recently received lots of photos and papers from my uncle Jim Payton and am sorting through them. Thank you so much.

I have Mattie, Media,Armstrong Watson's name as Almeda Pearl Armstrong Watson. Her parents are: Henry Thomas Armstrong and Sarah 'Sallie' Jane McPherson.
'Media' birth is 7 Feb 1881 in Commanche County, Texas. You have the correct death information.
How did you come by her name as Mattie? Just wondering. You are doing a wonderful job in findagrave, thanks.

I am so sorry, but inadvertently added a memorial for Hannah Vaughn Peterson back in May. I never saw your's. I do not know how to merge these, but know it can be done. I could delete mine, but a few family members found it and added flowers. It would be a shame to lose those. How can these flowers be added to your memorial? I will delete mine then.

Ken, could I have permission to use your photo of Elwood Knox? I am going to scan the document that he and Nan put together on the Pack family, and I would like to put their picture in the front as the authors of the document. I have a picture of Nan. Thanks, Jerry.

Stephen Wilson
Srouds Creek, Hood County
Hello Ken,
You are listed as the creator for the comments on M. E. Dunn. Your comments say she was the wife of J. T. Ferris. I have a different opinion. I believe she is Matilda Elizabeth Mulberry Moore Dunn. Her first husband, Charles Moore, is buried nearby. He is my wife's ancestor that immigrated from Ireland.

Hi Ken - Thank you so very, very much for linking my brother, David Lee Morris who died in 1934 with my parents who died more than 50 years later. I know I have a lot to learn, still; but I was unable to link them. You are a responsible memorial manager & our findagrave hero. Thanks again, GinieReed

Possible duplicate find-a-grave memorial
I believe your find-a-grave memorial # 20656999
is one and the same as memorial # 54485410 created by Sheran Weible

I don't know if you two would like to collaborate and combinee these two memorials into one or not. Just giving a "head's up."

Carol Van de Wetering,
granddaughter of John Rickman Holland through his daughter, Simruda Catherine Holland Covington (1828 - 1906)

Hi, thank you for putting my Great, Great Grandfathers information on Find a grave. I wanted to let you know that he was also a Texas Ranger and served with Buck Berry. That unit went into the War Between the States. He also received the Southern Cross of Honor from the United Daughters of the Confederacy for his service.

Thanks so much

Hi Ken,

I am hoping that you will be so kind as to transfer the memorials of my great grandparents to me, David Edmond Carter & Mallie Kelley Carter. They are #53193474 & #53193473. They raised my Mom in Gordon, Texas, and my grandpa Carter at one time took us out to see them in the cemetery.

Thanks You for recording their gravesite.

Duplicate memorials for Charles Kleba Dempsey
Good afternoon, Ken,
It's been a pleasure to work with you over the years. I need your help, if you wish, to fix a duplicate of your valid memorial. But to make matters worse, your headstone photo of 2011 has been copied and placed on the duplicate photo.

Please contact me at to discuss a solution.
