Thank you for providing the family links. Do you by chance have the maiden name for his wife Flora? I'm assuming she remarried after the death of Guy? Do you know which Jones, or if she remarried?
Any additional info would be appreciated.

Again Thanks for your help!

Edward M. Derr
Dear Catherine,
Thank you for the death certificate of my GG-Uncle Edward M. Derr. The parents listed on his death certificate are not correct. He was the son of Noah and Henriette Derr, brother to Dollie Derr and uncle to my Grandfather Ralph I. Steinberger who knew him very well and he was very loved by the family. You may look at my grandfather's photos and see the resemblance between him and his Uncle Ed. Whomever filled out the papers in the family placed the incorrect name of parents on his certificate. Henriette died in childbirth w/ Edward and it was not uncommon for family to step in and help raise the children in such situations. It is a possibility they helped in the raising of Uncle Ed at some time in his childhood as my grandparents helped in raising Garth Jones for a few years. I did make a note that the parents listed are incorrect. My Uncle Jack has his Navy trunk used in WW I. Uncle Ed was an integral part of our family. Also, it is not uncommon for other Derr's to be buried in the same cemeteries.
Please tho in the future if you would please ask to add info to his memorial ahead of time, as his info gets very confusing due to inaccurate information placed on vital documents. You may reach me thru the Suggest an Edit section at anytime. Thank you for your help.

Daniel Joseph Welch
Catherine, I found your Daniel Joseph Welch
Find A Grave# 49114313 in Bellwood Memorial Park in Temple.
b 1901, d 1979.
I am researching a Daniel Joseph Welch, buried in Temple (no name for cem) b 10-22-1901,
d 2-10-1979. You show parents as Daniel M. Welch and Lillian D. Welch.

I show parents as John Ell Welch and Ella E.
McDonald Welch.

Is this "Daniel" one in the same and or just a coincidence. Do you know for sure who his parents are? Just wondering. My Daniel was born in New Baden, Robertson Co., Tx. Had brothers James R. and Quincy Ell, buried elsewhere.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Nell Fisher and Pearl Woodruff

Thank you for updating and linking Nell and Pearl's memorials. I am working on the Peterson Family tree. Nell's grandmother was Eliza Peterson Ramsey. Family records do not have much on Eliza's family, so it was great to find Nell and Pearl. I'm slowly finding and putting their family together. My great grandmother was Elizabeth Peterson Arey.

Thanks Again,
Michael Mussinan

McGinnis Family
Hello Catherine,

I am writing in regard to the following memorials:

Sam Houston McGinnis #95696209
James Marion McGinnis II #95692551
Nancy Isabel Wingfield McGinnis #82486816

My dear grandmother Gwen McGinnis Bushong has been our family's genealogist until she passed away in 2007. I have taken over that role for our family since her death. Sam Houston McGinnis is my great grandfather, Gwen's dad. He was one of MANY children in this particular McGinnis family that included two mothers and a total of 18 children (i.e. - complexity and confusion trying to keep them all straight).

I would very much appreciate the opportunity to take over the management of these family memorials listed above of my great grandparents. I am very, very well researched and knowledgeable of this McGinnis family because of my grandmother Gwen, her family bible, and all that she knew of her family, along with many of today's helpful research tools.

Thank you!

Hello, I am a close family member of Ethan hawke Taylor and I just wanted to ask if maybe you had gotten the date of birth wrong. The Ethan hawke Taylor that I know of in that town was the stillborn son of Larry and Shamey Taylor,my great uncle and aunt. I just wanted to give you that info just in case it was the same person.

It was so long ago that I worked this name that I had forgotten about the "sorted affair" that happened in this case. Thanks for the info!

Catherine Miller Newell
Lida Fowler Ivie/Edna Norman
In the 1940s census, I noticed that Lida Ivie lived with James & Edna Norman. They said that she was James' mother-in-law.

The census could be way off base but my grandmother (James' niece) remembers Lida and Lonnie living with her aunt and uncle after Lida's husband died for sometime and that Lida was related to Edna somehow.

Do you happen to know the connection between Edna and Lida?

Lida's memorial

Edna's memorial

Here is the census:

RE: Wow, I was having a bad day!
For some reason the secondary note explaining the reason for declining suggestions is not being shown. The secondary reason which I added to all returns reads: "In accordance with advice from Tyler, Customer Solutions Associate, please provide documentation or source for suggestions submitted through edits. I will then gladly approve them."
If you have sources such as death certificates please add them to the memorial using the "add a photo" facility. I will then accept the edits.

Hi there,
I would so love to please request transfer of my aunt and uncle Ronald Earl Allen and Edna Endicott Allen, his wife. Actually Edna was also my mother's 1st cousin and she then married my Dad's brother. So I am related to both of them! Thanks for all your many hours of work trying to take all the pictures and matching up relatives. It's quite a job but a very important one. It helps to have a virtual place like this thanks so much for your contributions! Take Care,
Melinda Allen-Grimes
