Nancy Stull
I have entered Nancy Ann (Porter) Stull in Stull Cemetery as she is listed on a stone with her husband. I just found your entry in Richardson Hill. I presume she really is buried there as the Stull Cemetery stone gives no death dates. How do you handle duplicate stones and cemetery entries? I will abide by your wishes as I believe your memorial pre-dates mine. Just let me know the proper procedure.

I was hoping to obtain permission from you to use some of your Find-a-Grave photos on my family's personal genealogy web site. The photos I'd like to use are for the following:

Ollie & Ira A Bodine
Alfred & Beulah Bodine

I'll ask again as I find others I'd like to use. If you approve of my using these photos, please let me know how you would like to be credited, either with your name or your Find-a-Grave name, if different.

Thank you so much!

Charlotta Marsh
I was fascinated tonight to find your post and picture for Charlotta Marsh. The picture of the family with Charlotta and Thomas Marsh and others is fascinating -- do you have any more info about who the other people are? If you have a file with this picture, I would love to put it in my family tree and the album I'm making for my kids. Also, what happened between Charlotta and Thomas? Any idea? Did they divorce? Anything you can tell me would be much appreciated. Thank You!

Old Simmons Cemetery

Thanks so much for the great pictures from the Old Simmons/Old Panther Fork Cemetery. My grandparents lived in the house you can see from the cemetery...of course, it looked much different then with lots of trees, horses, dairy cows, etc. I love seeing the pictures and they have come in very handy for proving family genealogy.

Miss, you posted a photo for 59171518 and it shows a Orrill monument in the background, and as I ame researching this family line, I would like to know the names on that stone. Not knowing who they are I can't make a memorial for them and then ask for a photo. Is it possible if you could take a photo of it for me? Thanks Don

America Barbee
You have not posted a picture of America's headstone. I found one on Rootsweb under the Sugar Camp Cemetery section. As I'm not sure how old that picture is, can you tell me if the headstone is still standing in the cemetery?
Thank you for your help.

Arthur Cook
"Hull Town, Sinks' Street,
Taylor Hotel, and
Nothing to eat."
(This was only in fun, of course.) Arthur Cook lived just east of Lovilla at the time, and F. M. Cook the first house south.
At this time in Lovilla's history, many will remember the lawn parties and ice cream socials there. Young folk came for miles around and "Snap", "Four-in-the-Boat", etc., were the games played on these occasions. Most of the young men arrived in buggies or on horseback since very few had cars. The young ladies were usually on the "lookout" for the fellow who had a rubber-tired buggy and a spirited horse with red tassels on its bridle. At these gay events, after you had eaten all the "home made" ice cream and cake that your "beau" could afford and had played "Snap" with every boy there, your sweetheart escorted you home, with the stars and a romantic moon overhead and the smell of honey suckle in the air. You always reached home by 10:30 or 11:00, which was "shamefully late" in those days.
Today, nothing remains to show that Lovilla ever existed. You see only neglected fields on all sides. The roads are almost impassable, with trees and bushes overhanging and bridges and culverts broken down or washed away. There are no buildings, no sounds, no signs of life—only solitude and memories remain.
Thus ends a tale of long ago,
A tale that only few could know,
For those of Old Lovilla's day
Long years ago were "laid away."
But we recall how they could tell
This story that they loved so well.
So, we can only hope and pray
We've told it half as well as they.
