Jay Marshall
Susan Wright Brown
Susan Wright Brown is my 2nd great grandmother. My great grandfather Thomas Melvin Marshall married her daughter Nannie Rachael Brown. I saw where you had a letter from Susan's son and he was talking about her final days. Would it be possible to get a copy of that letter? Also would have anything on Nannie? I have very little. One of her daughters is still living but she was too little at the time of her death to remember anything about her mother.

Hello
I am the great granddaughter of Lee Roy Brooks. His father was Arthur Alexander Brooks. Anyway my son is doing a heritage project at school and we are doing it on Lewis Pinkney Brooks. I have learned so much just from reading your page and would like to know if you might be able to give us more information about him?

Lillie Dell Miner Braddock
Hello, it's me again! This time I have questions about the referenced memorial (#44372255). I'm looking at an old map of the South Bend Cemetery, dated 1993, and Lillie is not there, which makes sense since she didn't die until 1994! Can you tell me where in the cemetery she is buried? She is not with the rest of the Braddocks, and I'm not familiar with her name or the names of her parents, just wondering if she is kin. (I'm a great-granddaughter of Elbert Marion Braddock, #9029560.)

Thank you for your time--Helena

Ella Braddock Barrett
I'm a brand-new member of Find A Grave and just now looked up my Braddock family that is buried in South Bend Cemetery. I discovered that you and my cousin have made memorial entries for the same person: Ella Braddock Barrett. Your memorial number for her is 44369766 and my cousin's is 9033149. The reason for the duplication is that my cousin entered her as Ella Braddock, her maiden name, so you didn't see that she was already entered. I will contact my cousin and see if he wants to edit her name--it was probably just an oversight.

Would it be possible to transfer the photo of Ella's gravestone over to the other record?

Thank you for your efforts in this matter, they are much appreciated. Also, I'm curious: how did you come to make a memorial entry for Ella? I really don't know how all this works!

McAnear markers
Thank you for getting the marker for Uncle McAnear. I guess Aunt Dorothy never got a marker, which makes me sad.

Appreciate your kindness, in any case.

Thank you,

Brooks Family History by Weir
Hello! I am a librarian, and I have a patron interested in the book "Brooks Family History (History of L. P. Brooks Ancestors & Descendants) 1795-1979 - complied by Barbara Brooks Weir. Would it be possible to get some information on this book? Your posting here for John L. Brooke in Hall County, Georgia is the only google result for the book. Any information you can give me to help locate a copy, or have copies made from one, would be appreciated.

Thank you for your time,

Yes, they are connected. Small small world. Pete is a second cousin (4x removed). His great grandfather Valentine K Shults Sr is my 5th great grand father :)

SE Blevins
DB,
Yes, I'm connected to him (about 6 different ways, lol) My direct line is his mother Susannah Shults' family. She is a first cousin. There are numerous Shults/Blevins Marriages, my family tree holds a lot of research time of both families.

I'm not asking to manage the memorial. Like you, just want it accurate.

warm regards,
lori

SE Blevins
The census reports have his parents in Caroll county Arkansas in 1838 (Arkansas, Compiled Census and Census Substitutes Index, 1819-1870) I will provide you with both the census and his civiil war pension record that show this to be true.

I'll reach out to him (your source) to see what proof he has. But a face value I see no proof of the WJ nor the birth location.

The rub is mostly that the WJ makes the memoral almost impossible to find for those of us who know his name is Squire or SE Blevins

Squire Blevins
Hi DBrown,
So I take it you've seen the "WJ" in writing on an official document?

Robert Brown
Josiah Washington Brown
Robert Eugene Brown is a descendant of Josiah Washington Brown. Robert Eugene Brown's DNA test results matched my DNA test results. I have been trying to find a common ancestor for Robert Eugene and and myself, Robert Henry Brown. My heritage is German. My 7th grandfather was Johan Stephen Christian Braun (name spelling changed to Brown after arriving in North Carolina) arrived in the Philadelphia, PA, USA in Sep 1738 on the Ship Glasgow from Rotterdam, via England. They were in Lancaster County, PA for several years before moving on to North Carolina. Robert Eugene's heritage seems to be Scotch English. Any help in finding a common ancestor will be greatly appreciated. My email address is brow2215@bellsouth.net and my snail mail address is 3122 Brian's Creek Dr. Conyers, GA 30013. My phone number is 770-761-5165.

You asked if I was related, yes, but distantly his great grandfather & my great grandfather were brothers. I like to connect as many memorials of my family, close or extended to their families when I know the connection.
Thanks

Sara Dorothy Muscatt W. Foley
Sara Muscatt W. Foley's tombstone says her death was in January, which agrees with what the SSDI says. Your write-up says she died in February, however. I am guessing this is a simple mistake, but is there a source that says February?

Thanks

Memorial Transfers
D:

I'm wondering about whether you'd be interested in receiving some of the memorials I currently have under my management. I am wanting to transfer as many as I can once I am finished with them as I don't want them to get left in limbo if and when I am no longer able to maintain them. I am hoping that you are younger than I but I realize that you may not be. In any case, please let me know.

I am speaking of memorials for the Dowdy, Freeman, Pardue, Gallaway and related families. I know that you have many of these but I have some and do want them to go to someone who will take good care of them.

Thanks so much.

John Marion Chastain
I was just wondering, do you have any other infromation on John Marion Chastain's burial? You list it as Boyd's Chapel, Towns County, Georgia, and give a date of death. You have a Family Search document as a source. While I think I tracked it down, it didn't give much information. Have you seen any other documents saying he is buried there or that he died on that date?
