Glad to do it. Sorry I wasn't able to find his son, Jr. Do you think he's buried in the same cemetery?

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.

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!!! :)

Hope you can help...
Hello,

I am not sure how closely you are related, but I have been trying to find Walter Fleet Foster. I am not sure if he is living or deceased. His brother is Roland Lewis Foster lll, and his father was Capt. Roland Foster. I last saw Fleet in 1994, in Urbanna, Virginia. I would love to know how he's doing and if he is healthy and happy. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks so much and God bless.

Sincerely,
Beth

RE: My Cousin Lewis Brent Hill
He's in the columbarium at Trinity, so your mother had it right after all. If I did not already send you an edit, could you please add "Columbarium" in the plot section of his memorial?

Many thanks for your patience with me on this-

William R. Ward
Ratliff Family
Bill,
George, Jr., was my childhood friend. George Sr (1923), was my father's, Jack Coop Ward, best friend at Texas A&M, class of '44. I have fond memories of summers spent at their home in Cedar Lane. My grandfather, Gus Roesler, had built a cabin on Caney Creek close to Sargent's Beach. We spent nearly every other weekend at the cabin and it was convinent to stop at Cedar Lane. The cabin was destroyed by Hurricane Carla in September of 1961. My grandfather did not rebuild the cabin and we made less trips to Hhe area, I recently visited Connie at the old home on Ratliff Road. I took her out to dinner and we discussed the old days. I'm still confused about George, Jr.s death. Can you tell me more about the family?
Thanks, Bill Ward

I dont think he's at Trinity Cathedral churchyard. There is the Trinity Methodist cemetery, which is more likely. I'll try to get his obit, and I'll check the Trinity survey.

Sheltons, Chandlers, Franklins, etc
Dont mean to mislead you, I'm only distantly related to them. One of my mother's Worsham GGaunts married Stephen Franklin, who died in Waynesville around 1917 or 1909, I forget when. That's my Chandler/Franklin connection.

I originally was messaging you to ask about this memorial you have in Trinity Cathedral churchyard in Columbia, to ask you if you are sure he is there, because I have been all over that cemetery several times in the last couple of weeks and I am not finding him. That does not mean he's not there, only that he's not findable by me. Can you tell me how you know he's buried there?

then I read your bio and see that your wife and I have some of the same names in our family trees, Franklin, Shelton, Chandler. My mother's side are from Madison county and from there spread into eastern tennesse. I'd love to kick that around with her a bit.

RE: Blanco & Wife
Bill, if the grave photo she posted on your entry in NC is actually of the unused grave plot in TN where the wife is buried, the photo needs to come off your NC entry and a new photo request made so someone can photograph what the actual grave looks like in NC. The actual burial location in NC should not have the picture of the TN unused grave marker on it...

The Find A Grave FAQ's cover what a cenotaph is, and if there's an unused grave marker for Blanco in TN, the memorial needs to be designated as a cenotaph; it can stay as can that photo of the unused grave, under the following rules:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?searchArg=cenotaph&page=listFaqs#81

What is a cenotaph? How do I have a memorial designated as a cenotaph?

A cenotaph is a tomb or a monument erected in honor of a person or group of persons whose remains are buried elsewhere. It can also be the initial marker for a person who has since been interred elsewhere.
To add a cenotaph, create a memorial just like any other. Then email edit@findagrave.com with a link to the memorial and a message to mark it as a cenotaph.


I have several of these, two quickly come to mind:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=williams&GSmid=47464142&GRid=114009042&

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=107957091

I'll submit her TN entry to be made a cenotaph, could you ask her to remove the TN grave photo off your NC entry? I've already put in a photo request for your NC entry so we can hopefully get a photo of his grave in NC posted by a photo contributor in that area once the weather clears/warms up.

Thanks, Karyn

Thanks, Karyn

More on Blanco Franklin
The other problem comes from the same photo being on both the NC and the TN entries.

If Bessie's grave is in TN and Blanco is not buried with her but has a marker in TN, that entry needs to be marked as a cenotaph. I can take care of that.

If he is buried in NC, the photo of the TN grave marker needs to come off that memorial because it is a different grave.

thanks, Karyn

RE: duplicate
Where are the actual graves of Blanco and Bessie?

If they are in Tennessee, hers are not the duplicates as they were placed in the correct cemetery first. Your NC entry would be the one to be deleted or merge even though it was created earlier..

If they are in NC, her TN entry for Blanco should be deleted and her TN entry for Bessie needs to be moved to the correct NC cemetery.

RE: Blanco Franklin
Bill, I have the two memorials cross referenced so that kin who are looking for Blanco can find him. Thanks for your additional information.

Added by Donna Brummett on Jan 13, 2015 2:02 PM

RE: Blanco Franklin
That's fine, but can you and the other contributor figure out the problem with the two entries? He is listed in two different cemeteries, one in TN made by Donna Brummitt and the other in NC made by you and linked to the wife's memorial in TN made by Donna Brummitt; unfortunately BOTH the NC and TN entries have the same photos added to them by Donna, so I have no idea which cemetery is wrong or right. Whichever entry is misplaced needs to be deleted or merged into the correct entry so there's only one for Blanco. IF the wife is correctly placed in TN, your entry in NC is the one that is misplaced, because it's a double plot for the two of them. But I have no way of knowing at this point if hers is right or not either.

thanks, Karyn
