George Washington Wright
Hello: I tried to add a photo of a letter George Washington Wright wrote while he was in the Civil War to his daughter in Feb, 1864. I obtained the letter from a cousin in Alabama, but cannot remember her name. I typed the letter from the original written version (I only have a copy of the original written version). But, Find A Grave would not let me add the letter, saying it only allowed 5 photos on the sight. If you want a copy of the letter go to my tree on AC called ettasmith95 on my Dark Tree and go to George Washington Wright. Email me if you need to do so. Gwynne Smith

Allan Crowder
Hi again Mary Jane, I found his grave this morning. As you will see, his marker is incorrect. What is amazing to me is that I have taken photos of his marker in the past and could not figure out who is resting in that grave, mostly due to the unit. Now I realize the state is wrong on the marker.

Crowders in Old City
Hi Mary Jane, I just posted a memorial for a William A Crowder who is resting in the Confederate section of Old City Cemetery here in Lynchburg. Was curious if you know whether he was kin to the gentleman by the name of Allen Crowder whom you have a memorial up for and I am going to find his grave marker for you? There are actually three soldiers from Virginia in the Confederate section with the last name of Crowder.

Best regards,
Darrell Landrum
Lynchubrg, Virginia

William C Rice
Hi Mary Jane

I have been looking for a William Rice who was born in 1824-25 and went missing after 1854. The William C Rice who is buried in Fort Benning Cemetery in 1857, could be the one I have been looking for him, for years. Thanks for any information about this William Rice you have listed

Thanks Bobby L Rice

Thank you so much for transfering the memorial of Mattie L. Willett to my care. She is my great-grandmother.

You are very welcome. My husband and I enjoy searching through cemeteries. We enjoy it more when we can fulfill a request. We live 33 miles from Stewart Co., Georgia and will attempt to locate your request. Also, I will be visiting my son during May and will search the Cemetery in Bossier Parrish, LA. as he lives in Gonzales, LA. (30-40 miles away). Maybe I'll get lucky and find the three you have requested. Your Find a Grave friend, Nancy

It appears I've found more relatives here. PK Phenix and Mary Nix are my 4th great-grandparents. Columbia Ann to Mary Virginia Bullion to Robert Bruce Wood. I guess this means I'm related to your husband. So nice to meet you. :-)

You're welcome - the snow and the fact that the stone is sinking a bit posed some problems.

RE: John Baldwin Hay
i cannot say yes or no at the moment as we are travelling but will check the photos when we are back home. It will help a lot if you resend your question through edit tab on the memorial page - this will send an email for me with an instant link.
Kind regards

James Pinkerton Laird
Not only is the middle initial on this headstone in error, but the year of death seems to be also. The announcement of the death of Mr. Laird is to be found in the October 27, 1910, issue of the DeFuniak Herald, Page 1, Column 3. A cropped view can be sent upon request, which will show the date of the newspaper.

You did the memorials for Jacob Woolbright, his wife Verlinda and one of the dtrs.

I am doing the Rev. work for someone who wants to join our DAR chapter. She has son Daniel-who went to Lee Co., and his son Willis who died in the Civil War-from Terrell Co Ga.

Do you have any of the proof on Jacob, such as the Land Lottery proof, or his service, or proof of his marriage, will etc?

If you have anything that will help her, I'd appreciate it. I looked on ancestry-and on DAR. Ancestry has no proof and DAR had only two daughters that were used-no service mentioned, or nothing that would help, either.
Thanks, Gerry Hill- a Contributor here.
