Willmott family
Hi Kay, I wanted to thank you for creating all the memorials & putting up pictures of the family. It has allowed me to learn a little more about my husband's family & share it with him. His Grandma is Patrica Rose Wood - Sherman, Bertha Willmot's daughter.

Donald Edward Akers memories
Thank you so much Kay for sharing your Uncle's memories from WW II of our Uncle Bud, Donald Edward Akers. His memory has always been part of our Memorial Day as his grave is by his parents. He was one of 14 children, 12 boys. Four of his brothers also served in WW II. I have made a copy of the picture and the memories that you shared to give to Virginia Lee, Bud and Virginia's daughter whom he never did see. Thank you again for the time you gave to sharing this.

Gene Leckner
Hello Kay. Gene Leckner was my grandfather. :) He did end up getting married to Edith Reaves , and my mother Carol Petrowsky, is their daughter. It was wonderful to read about my granfather, since I never had the chance to meet him. We all (our family), appreciate that you took the time to write these memories down for your dear uncle.
Thank you very much!

RE: Mabel V. Connor
Hi Kay,
Well, we got lucky on this one. I am not much of a records-searching genealogist researcher type, but I did find Mabel V is buried in Evergreen. She is listed in the cemetery index as follows:

Connors, Mabel V. LOT 45 DIVISION 9 *BOOK 1/PAGE 195

The index I have collated about the *Sexton's book indicates she was buried between June 4 and September 13, 1901, which coincides with the dates you provided. I can go look at the book if you need an exact burial date. As you can see, her name is spelled with an s on the end, which, as you know, is a common mistake with names which may use multiple possible spellings.

There is no listing for a headstone for her, however, in the index of known headstones / inscriptions. The inscription index is quite useful, about 95% accurate, but does not always include every name which may be on a marker. I will take a look next time I am out there.

So, you have confirmation that Mabel V. is, indeed, buried in Evergreen. Her grave is in the same lot as Elizabeth, James E., Margaret and Mark.

John J., Blanche, Jean and John (?) are in an adjacent lot in the same division. (Division 9, Lot 47)

Glad to help,

RE: Louise Good
No, she didn't get to attend third grade at Sunshine, since we moved during her second grade year. Ike Kennedy married my mother-in-law, Ruby after my husband's dad died. She also worked at Farmers in the office before she went to work for the Luna County Road Dept. as their secretary. She was a Hodge. Her two sisters, Martha Janecka, Evelyn England and her brother Jesse Hodge are all buried in Deming.

RE: Lucinda Goldman Hicks
I looked at the memorial and your note to me - I am not sure what you are asking or suggesting? I will be happy to assist in any way I can, but you will need to let me know what you would like me to do.

Clarence & Nellie Stark
I have removed the photo from Clarence & Nellie Stark's memorial. Also checked Elmer & Opheli's memorial to make sure I hadn'[t switched them. I am currently going through all the pictures (graves)in my computer. If I do not have a photo for Clarence & Nellie, I will go to the cemetery and take another one. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

RE: Dewitt Johnson
Thanks for letting me know. I wonder what happened to Martha's husband?

I was able to find and take photos for Frank R and Lottie A Peterman, Martha Johnson Peterman and a third for Burt. There was also a Dewitt C. Johnson grave between Frank and Lottie and Martha. I have also added a photo for him thinking he might be related to Martha.
sorry about the previous post. I hit enter in error.

RE: Burt Peterman headstone
Yes, he was next to some other Peterman's. I am going to be out of town for the weekend, but will make a trip back next week and take pics of all the Peterman's I can find. I also know the cemetery sexton and can work with him. Let me know who else you are looking for at Overlook.

Cooper at Overlook
I am a little confused. Why are you requesting a photo for Curtis Cooper when there is a very good one already posted?

SM Phillips
I have been trying to complete the photo requests for the Wildwood Cemetery in Terrell, TX. I search for S. Phillips with a death in 1907. The burials are very orderly at the State Hospital and are 95% of the time chronological. Although the dates on this headstone do not match the Memorial page for Sarah, I thought I'd add it to let you see it. Please delete if this is not the person you are looking for.

Computer mess up
Sorry about all of that, my computer really

RE: Velma & Orban
Kay, I'll look forward in seeing the picture.
I'll see if I know who they are. Mozell was
a little younger than Velma and Birdie was older.
Birdie is the mother of Ken, who started Ken's

RE: Velma & Orban
Kay, I'll look forward in seeing the pictures.
I met both of her sisters, it was long ago.
I'll try my best to see if I know who they are.

Velma & Orban
Kay, we knew Velma and Orban real well. At one time we were nextdoor neighbors. We spent many
of the Holidays with them througout the years. She & Orban dearly loved our 3 children. They have many keepsakes that she made for them. She
always called herself and Orban, our make believe Aunt and Uncle. We also met Effie many times. They were all a loving family.
