Hi cousin
I know very little of my family history on both sides of my tree so it is of great honor to introduce myself as a cousin. I am William Henry Dodd's daughter Lisa DeAnnna Dodd. I just began this quest to discover who I am and where I came from a few days ago after conversations with my father. All of my grandparents passed before I could get to know who they were on both sides of my tree so it has always been a lingering question. Any information that you can give to me will be a cherished gift. Please feel free to call me at 901 598 4669. Thank you.

Mary Barnett Poppenheim
Hello Leon,

Just curious, if it's not too much trouble, which book did you find the photo of Mary Barnett Poppenheim in?

Have you ever read 'Southern Women at Vassar:
The Poppenheim Family Letters, 18821916?

Interesting anecdotes.


PS: I appreciate all the hard work you've done on portraiture. Many people don't seem to understand photo order significance.

Hi Leon,

Thanks for the notice. Looks like a good bio. I may just delete my entry if you'd like to add your nice photo to the new one. Sounds good to me.

Best Regards,

You are most welcome, but I certainly don't deserve any credit! Just doing what volunteers do, and accidentally landed in the right place. Happy to offer something to enhance an already lovely memorial. --H

Greene Information
Thanks for the good information, Leon! I'll check into it. By the way, I read in your bio about the issue of someone posting (and inadvertently moving) photos on memorials. You're probably aware of this, but if you're the manager of a memorial, you can change the order of photos that are posted on that memorial (even if you didn't post them). I love the photos you've posted! Thx again, Barb

Wm. Batchelder Greene, #24776157
Hi - Love this memorial and thank you for posting it and for the work you do on findagrave. I've been trying to figure out if he's related to my William Greene. How did you find him? Are there burial records? Thx! Barb

He is quite the same person. I have "Alan A. Cook of the Lafayette
Flying Corps, a son of Dr. and Mrs. Robert G. Cook of Canandaigua
has returned from service in the French Aviation Section. For his
gallantry, he was awarded the French was cross with palms" Robt
G. Cook, b. 1861, is buried on this lot with no mention of his being
an MD. The article is from the Clifton Springs Press, Thursday, Feb
27, 1919 available from newspapers

You are very welcome. He won a scholarship to Phillips Andover
Academy in 1914 and it can be assumed that he attended for the
next four years. Thank you for the compliment

RE: Dr. Edmund Louis Gros 106749219
The article speaks for itself and I copied it from the source I gave you. He may have died in Paris and his remains returned to Pennsylvania which is wife visited daily.

Thank you
Just wanted to say thank you for your postings on findagrave and to say God Bless you. Having suffered a right carotid dissection myself 8 years ago I empathize with you and wish you the best. I will say that I am happy to have learned that you do still have small gains even after so many years have gone by since my stroke.
