Pinkney Foster
I think that we have discussed this in emails, but I'm not positive. Some things that need to be edited on the page you created for Pinkney Andrew Foster. Bertha Lee Foster and Grady Landon Foster are not Pinkney and Lucinda's children. They are their grandchildren. Their father is Andrew Jackson Foster.
You don't have my great-grandfather list as a child of Pinkney and Lucinda. He was their next to youngest child, between Blume Finley and Andrew Jackson Foster. His name was Tilden Baines Foster. He is buried in Fresno, Ohio.
Pinkney was not wounded at Gettysburg on July 1st. He was wounded on July 3rd. This is what is stated on his Muster Roll. I have copies of a lot of his Muster Rolls dated anywhere from 1861 -1865.
I also have a copy of Pinkney and Lucida's family bible page that lists all of their children births and some of their grandchildren.
Don't mean to be so direct, just thought you might like to know.

James Dudley Horne

Hi, Bill. I'm writing in regard to James Dudley Horne, buried at Eastview Cemetery in Wadesboro in Anson County, North Carolina. Find A Grave Memorial# 95523080.

I just finished creating a cemetery page and memorials for James' parents, Joel E. and Elizabeth A. (Baldwine) Horne. Their small rural cemetery was surveyed by my mother in the 1970s, and I recently came across it in some of her work and quickly realized that cemetery was not on Findagrave. So I created a page for it and added the five burials Mom found there.

I'm using the edit button on James' page to give you the links for his parents.

I also hope you can perhaps let anyone you know who descends from that Horne family that Joel and Elizabeth "Eliza" now have memorials. I would love to hear from anyone researching that Horne family.

Reece vs Reese
The surname for a memorial needs to match what's on the headstone. That's what the F.A.G. guidelines/rules state. In the case of James Harrison Reece, I added the alternate spelling to his bio. Hope that's acceptable. ~ Shawn

William M. Foster
Merry Christmas Bill,

I am hoping you can confirm that the William M. Foster that was married to Nannie Daniel was the William M. Foster that served in the 18th Virginia Infantry. It seems to me that he is, given that William and Nannie were both from Cumberland County, Virginia, and that is where the core of the 18th resided. Can you confirm this?

Louisa Lou Bragg Foster
So glad to meet you Bill! My name is Rebecca L. Foster-Williams. Lou is my Paternal Great Grandmother! Her son Will is my Grandfather, My father is Howard M. Foster. My half brother visited this cemetery a few years ago and the burial site for Lou & James (aka: Little Jim) Foster could not be found. There are no headstones or known burial location for them. He mentioned erecting a headstone for them at the time, but I have received no updates. Thank you so much for your care and devotion to honor the deceased loved ones!

Hi Bill, sorry to say I cannot help you. I looked up his obituary and it doesn't say if or where he was buried. I do not know the family.

Sincerely, Vickie

Thomas Foster
I was wondering if I could use the pictures of Thomas' final resting place in my family research? He is a great grandfather of mine and they would be great to have in my records. I tried to get in touch with the person who took them, but was unable. I will give you the credit (I always like to ask for permission).

Thank you,

William Davis/Kean-Meggs Cemetery
Thanks for the info. I will get Findagrave to merge the 2 cemeteries with an AKA in the title. The Stanly County Genealogical Society surveyed the Kean-Meggs Cemetery. One of the surveyors is the Stanly County Historical Librarian. Once they are merged, I will delete my 2 entries or get them merged as I am finding & adding information.

Wonder where the name of William Davis came from. Alsey/Ailsey Kean/Keen is listed in the 1850 Census as a male and in the 1860 Census as a female.

RE: Your Foster family line
Changes done. FYI: Foster Reunion is August 1, 2015 at 12:00 at Unity Baptist Church in room up the ramp on left side of church across from the cemetery. Come if possible.

My grandmother was (John) Crager Foster's daughter, Vestula Foster. My daddy goes, as well as me and my husband.

Sad to say each year we are losing family members. But right now, we have the reunion on the first Saturday every year. Hope you can make it.

Foster memorial edits
In November, you had submitted edits for a Foster that I maintain. Recognizing your same last name, by chance are you related and would you like to maintain the memorial if so? Just let me know, I have been meaning to ask but time just got away from me... Sincerely, Charlotte

Debi pls add this information to the Find a Grave memorial of Dora Foster ( Row # 6 ) Her siblings are buried in row 7 by the way.
Added by Bill Foster (W.L.Foster ) on Mar 15, 2013 8:37 AM

I have edited those over which I have control but I do not control them all. I did however post some notes on the memorials so that others might find the information. You might wish to contact the other managers to have them edit their respective memorials. Have a great day and thanks for the info!!! :)
