RE: Goss Cemetery West Decatur
Maybe what is happened is that both cemeteries being named the same are showing as the one in Osceola. I was horrified to see that the mines were all around it ...thinking it was gone, but then happy to see they went around it. I want to research that mansion ( well the family), if you hear any other names will you let me know? I heard stories but I am so terrible with remembering names. Do you know if the "Old Goss Cemetery" was also the same as the Kephart cemetery? I am trying to find the Kephart one and cant seem to locate it.

Goss Cemetery
I see you have listed photos in the Goss Cemetery that are in a different Cemetery off Drane Hwy in West Decatur. I also have pictures of these and I am researching the people. Do you know what the name of the old Cemetery in West Decatur was called? Also, there was once a mansion at the bottom of the hill near that cemetery, do you know by any chance whose that was? I have an old map but am having a hard time placing.

Good Afternoon Sherry:

I was browsing through Find-a-grave and noticed that you had entered information about my father, John Edward Wick. I was wondering how did you obtain this information to do the listing? You mentioned about transfering ownership of the listing. Could you transfer this to me in this case please?

Hi Sherry, I am researching Evelyn along with her first husband. You have his name as Aurthur Clyde Holden and note that he passed away 27 May 1926. Was the spelling of his first name correct and do you have the source for his DOD? I cannot find anything related to this date for him.
Thank you for your hard work and help!

Where did you find the Jenks name that has been listed with this memorial?
Hi there, Hannah Priestley is my 2nd great grandmother and I have been to the Umbria Cemetery and have an image of Hannah's gravestone but I'm not sure where you found the name "Jenks". I would appreciate any insight you might be able to provide regarding the source for her maiden surname.

Thanks for transferring the Turners. I have spent a few years tracking down Harriet Tomlinson, AKA Henrietta Turner. This makes it easier to add to their bios. and family links.

Boyd James Woods
I have information on Linda Bloom, Boyd's mother, and Clifford's wife. If you would like, you can email me and I will get back to you with the info as I grew up in Faunce and I know the family.
Also, I noticed you had Lida Ajesta (Mease) Woods listed under your husband's family. Her sister, Annie Ammanda (Mease) Dickson was my great-grandmother. Her daughter, Glenna Marie (Dickson) Bauman was my paternal grandmother. This would make us relatives.
I only get to check my email when I'm not working, so if it may be a few days until I can get back to you.

Hi Sherry, First I want to thank-you for all the work that you have done for find-a-grave and I want to thank-you for all the transfers that you have given me in the past. You were very good at that and I appreciate it. Unfortunately for me, when you went to Reidy Cemetery and made memorials for souls buried there, you captured most of my immediate family. I would have made memorials for them; you just happened to beat me. But thank-you. I have been requesting the transfer of my dad and brother for about 2 years now. My requests don't show in your messages, so I am not sure what happens to them, but you don't answer me. I've even seen you on facebook and tried contacting you there, but you don't answer me. I would even be happy to let you continue to manage my dad and my brother, but you don't accept anything that I want to add or changes I suggest. I know that this is NOT like you. I was overwhelmed at having to ask for so many transfers of my family and I am so sorry if I upset you. On the other hand, I hope and pray that you are ok. Thank-you for the transfers of my great grandparents a while back. I want to sponsor 2 of your memorials as my gratitude. I will either pick them out or you can tell me who you would like sponsored, it is a gift from me. If you transfer my dad and my brother over to me, I will sponsor 2 more.. that is my way of saying thank-you. I did start another Memorial for my dad so I could work on it, but I know that it can't stay that way. I will combine the two when I hear from you. Thank-you again Sherry and I do hope and pray that you are ok.

Hi, Sherry,
I appreciate your work, but I wonder if you could help me with discovering the location of the graves of Annie F. and E.S. Stewart in the Umbria Cemetery. Where might I find the records that indicate the section for their headstones? I will be traveling from Colorado in October and would like to visit these newly located relatives. Thanks for efforts for findagrave!

Dear Sherry,

You said you had a bunch of information for me but your e-mails were being blocked. Go ahead and sent your e-mail to:

and then it won't bounce. I am working on many families, so am unsure where we connect (I do a lot of work on Moravian families out of Winston-Salem area of North Carolina).

Aaron Woods
I duplicated Aaron Woods memorial by accident. My father-ln-law's (Richard Boyd) mother is Evelyn Lenore Woods Holden Boyd. Richard had a shoebox full of funeral memoral cards that he shared with me one day. I wrote the info down at the time. In my notes there was the memorial card for Aaron Woods. Richard said it waw Martin's brother. As my father-in-law has since passed, I beleive my sister-in-law might have the box of cards if they still survive. I could inquire about them. If you would like to confirm the location add the burial place to your record, I will delete my memorial. You have done a great job on the Woods family history. I really enjoy your memorials.

If you can help us we would really appreciate it.
