Bailey Mountain
Did you create the Boone County Bailey Mountain? This cemetery is located in Montcoal at the top of the mountain and I heard three counties converge at the top but I thought it would have been in Raleigh County, therefore I created one there. All my ancestors are buried there but the coal company is in charge of it now.

Patricia Walsh Meadows
Isabella Jane Lilly
Hi Della, it's been a while since we've talked about Isabella. At that time I was looking for her and had discussions with you and I believe your sister. Then you had a medical problem and I sort of went on about things. Someone has contacted me about transferring one of my memorials that is connected to the Meadows and so I was looking around and I see that they, too, have just set up a memorial for Isabella. They have different parents and have a found grave site. Since you are familiar and do so much with these memorials, what do you know? This leaves two memorials for Isabella and yours jives with my information. Memorial #88983282. Just wondering your thoughts on this before I email and/or transfer requested person.

I hope you have recovered from your medical issues and are feeling well.

Just FYI - Samuel Meadows is my husband's grandfather.

Thanks. (Couldn't do your email as I guess it's changed)

Florence Pauline Bowman Peery
Hi, just wanted to let you know that the husband of Florence Peery was George W. Peery, not Ira James Peery, Sr.

The informant on her death certificate (Ira, Jr.) was actually her grandson, and Ira, Sr. was her son (he was born George Havens Perry/Peery, but later changed his name).

Thanks for all your help.

Helping a friend with her family history, and there is a duplicate record for some of the Maynard's due to the confusion of the cemetery name. I hope you can help resolve this.

I have another request. Could you connect the memorial of Lewis Green Vance #86077519 to his mother Nancy Ann Maynard Vance # 5565745. Thanks.

Anita Camp
Dad of Absolom (App) P. Vance
I hope you are doing well, we chatted via email quite a while ago. Anyway, Absolom Vance's Find A Grave Memorial #19093148 can now be connected to his father, Paris Smith Vance at Find a Grave Memorial #76976897. A mistake stating that Paris's middle name was James had been made over and over again, but it has finally been corrected on Find a Grave at least. Unfortunately, it will be difficult to catch everywhere. If you could connect them, and maybe correct it on App's Memorial, it would be appreciated. If you question this, just check Paris's son's, James Anderson Vance, death certificate found on his Find a Grave memorial. The evidence of his middle name being Smith not James can be found in other documentation also. Thanks :)

Are you related? I am looking for family members. Thank you for the post of my uncle.

To whom it may concern,

The information contained in Nathan Shelton's memorial is all screwed up. I thought I had explained previously but obviously not. It currently contains information for both the father and son.

I would like control of this memorial so that I can straightened this mess out.

Thanks so much!

Jesse Marcum
Hi Della - sorry to hear you've had such critical health problems and hope you're doing much better.
I notice that the death cert left on Jesse's entry is incorrect. It was left by 'Kay'. I'm contacting you as you are the creator of the entry and I'm not sure of the 'chain of command'. His birthdate and parents are different from our Jesse, and the cert should probably be removed.
Hoping that you're well...jeannie
