I am preparing a book on Henry Crist, and including information on his descendants, as well as the descendants of his siblings. Minerva Cochran, wife of James Madison Polk, was granddaughter of Jacob Crist, brother of Henry.
Would REALLY like to hear from you.

Over the past three years a group of Volunteers from Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 594, have been making Memorial Frames for each of the 79 men with Connections to our 5 County area. We are trying to locate family or friends of our Fallen Veteran's listed on our local wall. We are doing bio's with a picture to be put on display at the Naples Military Museum at the Naples Airport.
We are looking for any history you may be able to provide and a picture to honor our falling Veterans.
On November 9, 2014, we are having a dedication this year, at the Military Museum, at the Naples Airport. We are having various news media from our area to honor our fallen men.

|Maples||rogeneah Crist in McGee Cemetery|
If Rogeneah is not related to you, would you consider a transfer to me. She is the only person listed, that was listed in the McGee cemetery in spencer county Kentucky. I have had find a grave change the name of the cemetery to the Patrick McGee cemetery. All of the people listed there were related to McGee Family, my husbands family. If you do not wish to transfer, would you consider changing the cemetery to the Patrick McGee pioneer cemetery, so she can be listed with the family. thank you Pat

|Matthew Brewster||John and Martha Durham|
I've been researching part of my family in Kentucky and have come across your memorial of my fifth great-grandparents John and Martha Durham that are listed in Bellevue Cemetery in Danville:
I've also noticed those two listed with their son Thomas and his wife Frances (Moss) Durham in a cemetery called 'Durham Cemetery' also listed in Danville. The man who made those memorials said he took the reference from a book on old Kentucky cemeteries and listed the name as Durham Cemetery and the location 4 miles out of Danville. He had assumed it was a family farm.
I was wondering if you had any insight into which is correct? Clearly there are markers for the parents in Bellevue, but are they real or only memorials? The list online maintained by the city has the earliest interment as 1859, 40 years after they died, but that's not conclusive.
I'm not sure if you can help with this, but I would appreciate learning if you knew anything about John and Martha Durham or have ever come across the marker for Thomas and Frances.

Done, I see in the book where he died in 2000! Wow, it is hard for one to know which is right. Glad that I could transfer and if you need anymore that I have listed just let me know. I am not related to anyone in Bellevue Cemetery. I added a photo for Charles D and Susie Moore Wingate Durham.

|W. L.||Hi Becky|
My family and I spent hours at Mt. Washington Cemetary this past weekend. We were looking for my mother but unfortunately her gravesite is unmarked and we couldnt find it. Planning on going back soon.

You and I must be related through Abel Tryon, who is buried at Old Farm Hill Cemetery, Middletown, Middlesex, Connecticut. I notice that you are a 7th G and I am an 8th G granddaughter. Warm wishes to you from a distant cousin.

I will transfer the memorial today, Becky. I usually try to take photos of older graves before they are lost forever. I am always so happy when a descendant finds the graves I've posted online. So glad to be of help.
