Hi again, Karen!
I have an edit in for my grandpa to be added to his parents' page, so I figured that out.... I'm learning! Also, on Willie B Griggs, I need you to remove Lorene's name... she never ever knew Willie B. Lorene didn't come into the family until my grandma Rosie died at the time of her last child's birth who is still living. But, she never knew Willie at all. Thanks!

Hi Karen... we've corresponded before.... I'm trying to figure out why my grandfather William Joseph Shivers is not listed under George Washington Shivers as his child with Susan Virginia Berry? Thanks much! Cindy Shivers, Texas

Thank you and your family for all the work you do for Find A Grave. With people like you I can learn so much more about my family, to pass on to other family members. so thank you. I would like to know if you would allow me to use your headstone pictures of Bruce's and other family members of his that you have posted. I cant let you transfer them to me as I'm on hospice so don't think I can handle that. I will give you and find a grave credit for those that I post. I will be waiting for your reply.
Thank you again

Cryer Creek Cemetery
I hope things are well for you and your family. We've probably exchanged emails but I wanted to thank you for all your contributions. I see your name all over the Cryer Creek Cemetery - FindAGrave and we appreciate your time and effort.
I'm currently President of the Cryer Creek Cemetery Assoc and wanted to invite you and others to our Annual meeting. The meeting is scheduled for May 22nd (3;00PM) at the Cemetery. By that time I hope to have most of the New Plot Survey complete. As you may or may not know, our plot survey was lost sometime ago. Starting over is a lot of WORK!!! Nonetheless, I'm happy to do it as I find it interesting and on occasions get to meet great people like yourself. If you can't make the meeting I completely understand but please spread the word as I would love to get more people involved and serve on our Board.
Blessing to you and yours,
Jon Thomas

Hi Karen, I just added a photo to my great grandmother's memorial, I was going through some pictures and found it, My mother sent it to me several years ago before she died, My mother called her "Granny" as she was her father's mother. So we are related, but I do not know how,

Robert Hugh Middleton # 64767496
Are you related to Robert Hugh Middleton? I am trying to find the parents of Winnie Louise (Middleton) Hayes Simmons. The 1930 Navarro Co TX census shows that Robert Hugh and Gertie had a daughter named Winnie L., but she was b ca 1823, while my Winnie was born 3 Nov 1914 in Purdon, Navarro County, Texas. Winnie is actually an ancestress of my daughter-in-law. Any help would be appreciated. She was first married to Mont Hayes, then to a Simmons. Her tombstone, which is Hayes, says Winnie Simmons on it, even though a double stone with Mont Hayes. Thanks.

Grover Warren, Kirkville Cemetery
I am afraid you posted a memorial for a duplicate which was already posted. He was William Grover Warren, married Virda/Virder Ramey, and he was always known as Grover. His son Less Warren married my Aunt Harweda Tynes. The other memorial for William Warren #30631853 was posted 2008. That memorial has a bit of biography, but yours has the photo. It causes confusion for others like me trying to link their children to them. By Findagrave rules, the first memorial takes precedence, and the later memorial (yours) should be deleted. I do wish you could contact the other member and "findaway" to amicably merge the memorials. Barbara Tynes Claiborne

Mattie Jane (Honeycutt) Vyers
I saw her as married to Love Vyers, in the Pattison cemetery near Emhouse, TX. Can you provide more info on her? I also can't find any solid documentation on the name of Love Vyer's mother.

My great grandfather (Charlie Barlow) was Love Vyers half-brother. All genealogy research on Charlie hits a wall, largely due to confusion with Charles Pinkney Barlow of Kerens, Tx.

Anyone with info and documentation, please inform me.

RE: Melissa Pierson Warren
I understand, do you know anything about the other siblings are her mother. I know the info on the marriage record came from my files years ago, when I started my research in the 1980's I spent many days in the Fort Worth Library. In 1955 I lived and married in Abernathy, TX. their was a Pierson family there that was friends with my family, They knew that each had a grandpa named Wayman Pierson from TN but it was when I did my research that I connected the two family's, then in the early 1980's I found the 2nd family, The grand daughter of Emma Pierson came to Denison, TX and meet uncle Ben, my mother and me, her son brought her, it was quite a visit, history was made. Uncle Be Pierson has a grand daughter her name is Liz Reedy. I don't know how Wayman left tw other family's to start a new one. My grandfather did the same with my grad mother Malinda. Thanks Luteen By the way I run the copy of the Warren family off.

Find A Grave Memorial# 105973281
I am looking for a descendant of my Great Great Grandfather, Fielding Jones. He was married to July "Lucy" Miller. Luther Freeman Jones was one of his children. In the 1870 US Census, it shows that Luther F. Jones was 7 years old. I do not have any other information on him.

I am searching on 1863 as the year of his birth and found this Memorial. It lists his wife. Do you know anything about him? Or have an Obituary or anything?

If he is my relative, I sure would be thrilled. But? I don't have any information one way or the other.

Please help!!
