Memorial# 44877744 Joseph Gillespie Moore
I am hoping that you will consider deleting a photograph of a Bronze CSA Marker that you posted for the individual named, above.

There are three reasons for this request.

First, the information on the CSA Marker is incorrect for Joseph Gillespie Moore (1842-1879). While some of the info may apply to a different Joseph Moore who served and died in 1862, there was never a CO. Y. The subject Joseph Gillespie Moore did serve in an entirely different capacity in another state. His memorial has been updated by bioengineer with his correct service.

Second, if you are willing to delete the Bronze CSA Marker photo, bioengineer will be able to remove his extensive Note from the memorial which explains this marker error. Simply put, the Note adds nothing to the memory and life of Joseph Gillespie Moore and leaves the reader thinking more about the error and how it happened instead of thinking about Joseph Gillespie Moore.

Third, Joseph Gillespie Moore is my family. He died young and left no descendants. His father is my gr gr gr grandfather, Cornelius Moore also buried in the cemetery. His sister, Carolina Moore née Watkins, is buried in the Woodland Cemetery in nearby Rosebud, Texas. She is my gr gr grandmother and she raised my grandfather, Martin Watkins Anding who was her grandson and is also buried in Powers Chapel Cemetery.

Of possible interest, I have a recent photo of Joseph Gillespie Moore's large headstone which I will upload. I also plan to remove the incorrect CSA Bronze Plaque from its base and order a new Bronze Plaque with the correct information provided by bioengineer. I am able to take these steps since I am an officer and have served as the Historian for the Powers Chapel Cemetery Association (a non-profit corporation) for the better part of two years. I will soon publish a book for the association, The Powers Chapel Community. If you have any connections your contributions to book are welcomed.

Your consideration of this request is very much appreciated. If I can help you with any needs with cemeteries in Falls County west of the Brazos please don't hesitate to contact me.

RE: Rhodes Family
I'm sure that there is some connection within the family, but they are not brothers. My line did not leave very man tracks. Would enjoyed seeing what information you have found.

Best regards,

Parrish family of Florida
My husband's family is mentioned in the "Encyclopedia of Biography" page that you posted on John Parrish memorial #32962160. I see that you also sponsor that page. Could you tell me the full title of the book you got those images from? I would like to look it up. My father-in-law is Harlan Estes Parrish, mentioned at the bottom of page 74.
Thanks so much! And is this your family or your husbands?

Sixkiller Cemetery
Sixkiller Cemetery is not located at Afton, Ottawa County, Oklahoma. It is actually located approximately 1/4 mile south of the Ottawa-Delaware county line in Bernice, Delaware County, Oklahoma. You may want to edit your memorials to show the correct location.

You are so kind with your gentle comments on Vergil Russell. I in fact have 2 Vergil Russell's,
Virgil Pierce Russell 1915-1969 and Virgil Russell 1854 1905. Both Related by Jeremiah Potter Russell.
You are correct in that Virgil is a cousin. I have made the corrections. thank you!!
The only Russell I remember is Aunt Stella Pierce Russell, she married Charles Russell. She made me two patch work quilts which I use today. I would be interested to know if you are related to any of my Russell's. Thank you again for your kind comment, I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Lynda

You may want to check your Degree of Kinship Chart. Rather than third cousins, they may be second cousins once removed.

RE: Random Robert Bobbitt
I used to go by there a lot, and decided on day to stop and take pictures and notes for Find-A-Grave. The two small child graves were interesting, but that is all I know about them,

The Montgomery Old Cemetery founded 1838 is behind or beside Living Savior Lutheran Church at 309 Pond St, Montgomery, TX 77356. The grave yard is between the church and SH 105-Eva St. and Pond St. and Church Rd. If you Google map it you can see the two small graves to the left by themselves.

Old Methodist Church Cemetery
Also known as: Montgomery Old Cemetery, Old Montgomery Cemetery

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Just north of Eva Street aka 105 West (from Conroe) at Pond Street.

The Methodist Churchyard came into use for burials starting in 1836. When Pastor G. W. Rabb was dying in 1851, he requested burial beneath the altar of the frame church then being built to replace the original log cabin. His grave and a monument commemorating pioneer circuit riders now mark the original Methodist Church site. A stone in this cemetery commemorates a soldier of the American Revolution who died here. Other churchyard burials included veterans of the War of 1812, the Texas War for Independence, Mexican War, and Civil War, as well as many other pioneers, state and county officials, merchants, ministers, and physicians. In some of the unmarked graves are travelers who died here among strangers. Although a new cemetery opened in 1868, this one was also used until no space remained.

Infant Son Russell in Mt. Olive, MS
Hi there! I had never heard about 'only one transfer' but his memorial was transferred to me from the person who originally created it. I have not done many transfers so I figured it out and tried it! It appears to have transferred to you! yeah! Would you like transfers of any of the other Russells in the Mt. Olive cemetery? Since you are related, I would be most happy to do the transfers to you. Just let me know!

RE: Orviss info
The Probate docket had 7 pages (that I scanned, I can send them to you, if you like).

On the first page is given - D.A. Orviss died Sep 5, 1895 and Louisa R. Orviss, his wife died Oct 8, 1916. There was no will left, but the probate packet included letters of temporary administration because the Orviss’ – “died possessed of a certain claim against the Government of the United States of America by reason of certain cotton belonging to the said D. A. and Louisa R. Orviss which was seized and taken possession of by force by and under the terms of the military authorities of the United States of America after the first day of June, 1865.” Dated Dec 21, 1917 - filed for record Dec 24, 1917

Nothing else was in there about the Government case or about any other settling of their accounts. Odd since they left no heirs.

However, when I googled D. A. Orviss - I found there are "his papers" at the Brisco Library in Austin. The link has short biography showing.
