Hi Gene, Wasn't quite sure how to handle this, so hopefully you can straighten it out. She was listed as Mrs. J C Moody. Her name is Francis "Fanny" Henricks, and her husband was John C. Moody. Please list as you see best! Nancy

RE: Find A Grave memorial for Cecelia Simpson
Do what you want to do but the title "Mrs" was not intended to be on every memorial on Find A Grave of every married woman. That is why there is no "Mr." or "Miss" title for you to use.

As for the military title, they were intended for those who were KIA or retired from the service. It is a little strange to see "Pvt Thomas Jones" who was 90 years old when he died yet he only served 18 months in WWI.

And when a woman is married several times, every surname she has had doesn't go on the title. Only the one on her marker and if that is unknown, the one she had at the time of her death.

Do what you want.

RE: Find A Grave memorial for Cecelia Simpson
Would appreciate receiving information on bases or source on why you say:

My reply:

If you go to the discussion forums, the story of why "Mrs" was added is there.

It was added as there was no way to handle the tombstones that had "Mrs" inscribed on them. It was not put there to be put on every married woman's memorial. In the past, by adding it as part of the name, it became the first name and used "M" for Mrs in the search index. So, to resolve that problem, it was added as a title for the tombstone with the title "Mrs".

Vernon Gaylor Henry
Vernon G. Henry
VERNON G. HENRY, 74, died Sunday April 19, 2009, after a short battle with cancer. He was born in Houston on December 18, 1934 to Gladys Mae Douglas and Vernon Polk Henry. He graduated from Milby High School, attended Texas A&M University, and received two degrees from the University of Houston. He served as an officer in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, attaining the rank of Major. He continued his life-long interest in education by taking numerous graduate courses at several institutions, including Georgia Tech, Yale and Harvard and Rice, and by serving as a visiting lecturer and critic at Rice, Texas A&M, U of H, and UT Austin. As an A&M student, he assisted Bill Caudill with early wind tunnel experiments. His professional career began at the Houston Planning Department, where he conducted the public hearings for the failed zoning effort in 1961 and was Senior Planner in charge of Comprehensive Planning, before leaving to become a partner and head of the Planning Division of the firm of Neuhaus & Taylor. In 1967 he started his own planning consulting firm, Vernon G. Henry & Associates, which was well-known throughout the region for development planning of many major residential communities and shopping centers, comprehensive plans for small cities, expert witness testimony in land use issues, and park planning. The firm merged with TBG Partners in November 2008. Mr. Henry was a Fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners, and received numerous other awards and recognitions, including a life-time achievement award from the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association. He was the Houston Section Director of APA and President of the Gulf Southwest Chapter, which included Louisiana and Texas. In 1995, he was selected as one of the 50 outstanding graduates of the first 50 years of University of Houston College of Architecture and served on the College's Advisory Board. He was a C.R.E. - American Society of Real Estate Counselors and a member of the Urban Land Institute. His interest in and love of Houston was expressed by his involvement in many local civic organizations, such as Trees for Houston, the Houston Chamber of Commerce/Greater Houston Partnership, the West Houston Association, the Zoo Advisory Board, and the Greater Houston Builders Association. He was Vice-Chairman of the Houston Parks Green Ribbon Committee, President of the Houston Architecture Foundation Board, President of the Boulevard Oaks Civic Association, and President and Chairman of the Board of the Park People. For 28 years he was on the Board of Directors of the Zoological Society of Houston, President for 5 years, and Chair of the Building Committee when several popular new exhibits were constructed. Mr. Henry's hobbies included hot-air ballooning; he participated in several U.S. Championships, crewed in 3 World Championships, and was a President of the Houston Balloon Pilots Association. Vernon was a gentleman of great intelligence, kindness and humor, who mentored many young professionals. He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Joyce and husband Fielding Miller, and his brother-in-law Rudy Speights. He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Mary Lou, son Paul Alex and wife Kristin, sister Reba Speights, sister-in-law Carol and husband Bruce Bryant of Mandeville, La., and two wonderful Siamese cats: Sherlock Henry and Lady Whimsey. He was the favorite uncle of numerous nieces and nephews, including Kathleen Powell, who was a faithful and loving helper during his illness. Her daughter Caroline, was like a grandchild. Others are Kathy and Phil Abbott of Houston; Jean and Robert Adams of Harker Heights, TX.; Joyce and Robert Trent of San Antonio; Marilyn and Rob Cave of Spring Branch, TX.; Richard and Melissa Miller of Bailey, CO; Carol and Rodney Davis of Longview; Sharon and Grady Varnes of Platka, FL; Nathan Bryant of Baton Rouge, LA; John and Wendy Bryant of Clive, IA; Elena and Jeb Ball of Des Moines, IA.; Julie Bryant of Iowa City, IA.; and Pat and Laurie Bryant of Bloomington, MN.

RE: Carrie Holden
All Hartners are step siblings of Carrie as well as Fred Hartner being her stepfather. From information I have gathered Fred married Mary Miller in 1878 Mary had one daughter, Carrie Miller at the time. All death certificates for the Hartner children list Mary's maiden name as Meyers. I have never come across the name McClelland at all; nor have I discovered the full name of Mr. Miller. On Mary's death certificate her father's name is listed as Fred Meyers. I do not have a death certificate for Carrie . I would like to know your connection, if any, to the Hartner name. Thank you for the exchange of information.

Frances Mosely Moffett

Good reply! Since you asked, much of my information on the descendants of James Hope and Aletha H. Sorrels, which includes their granddaughter Frances Mosely Moffett comes from the research conducted by George W. Glass. His life long quest to find the marriage license for this union came to fruition when he found it recorded in Natchitoches Parish, La. dated 10 March 1824. There was a "large" law suite fought in Houston around the early 1900's regarding the estate of James Hope and the legality of the marriage to Aletha. Aletha and James had two daughters, Mary and Margaret Jane Hope. Margaret Jane Hope Booker died in 1854 when she and two of her children were struck by lightening walking home from church services.

All of George W. Glass' research is found in the Houston Public Library in their genealogical dept. His wife donated it to the Library after he died. Glass was the 3x great grandson of James and Aletha.

Thanks, Ima (Greg)
