Bright Gibson Moore
Find A Grave Memorial# 77699723

Hi Marilyn, I'm just trying to see if there is an error of his spouse.

I have his spouse as Etta Emma Jeansonne Moore, Memorial# 164037013 buried in Pleasant Mound Cemetery next to B.G. Moore,Memorial# 164037043. Photos were recently added for these two by Susan Lundin Smith. This B.G. Moore's stone shows his birthdate as 1894 though. There was no stone matching the Bright Gibson Moore dates.

Etta's sister was Ona Florence Jeansonne & she married Don D. Munger.

If you have an obituary that shows Bright Gibson Moore's widow as Ona, I am really confused. The children seem to be of Emma. Maybe he was married to both sisters, but when Ona died she was Ona Munger & her sister Emma was a witness on the death certificate as Emma Moore.

If you have any clarification, please help. Thanks, Deena Gibson

Possible conflict 72011676 and 117358995
I tried to use the e-mail address but it does not appear to be working.

I am not family ... but trying to correct my McCracken info that I was collecting for someone. I had William as the father of William, Isaac, Seneca and Ovid ... not Cyrus, AND I did not have a father for either William or Cyrus ... so I have lots to reprocess to see WHY I made that mistake and exactly how and where I got off track. Did something slip through without a source ... could be. I am most definitely not the one with full knowledge about this family. I need to un-link and link a few things before I have any semblance of order.

Since I am more than confused at the moment, I see the potential of making it worse, so I thought I should send a note to the creators of the 2 memorials regarding a potential conflict since 2 different men are referenced as being the person with 4 Nov 1782 death date at the same location. Not that it can't happen that both McCracken men died "equally" ... just that I'm not comfortable with it as is. I don't have the energy or time to deal with it right now. I need to correct and reprocess all that I already have.

Hope I haven't stirred-up a rats nest for the two of you. I am thankful for both of you for putting your work and efforts out there for others (me) to see. I may not have caught my mistake without all of your input and contributions. I surely do not want to put out information that sends others down the wrong path, so will take the time to figure out my "lineage" issues for the "boys". Collaboration is what it is all about, right.

I have a document with the McCracken memorials and additional info that relates - I won't be working on this but thought that those who have would want to see my concern.

Harry Brown #49508934 (infant son of Oscar and Ethel Brown) was my maternal uncle. Would it be possible to have his memorial transferred to my care? I have several edits.
Thank you.

Info needed
Just wondering about the information you have posted in Pleasant Mound Cemetery for Bobbie Jack Richardson 145537834. He would have been my uncle and when an Aunt was looking for his gravesite she was unable to locate the site.. How did you know he was buried at either location. My grandfather was listed as undertaker, and knowing their situation, they wouldn't have had money to bury him.

Thank you for any info you can provide.

John P. Hayes, # 52959024
An obituary for John P. Hayes in the Dallas Morning News is mentioned on his memorial site. Do you by chance have a copy of that obituary? I wonder if John P. Hayes and M. B. Hayes are one and the same, or are they related since they both have the same death date. I have the death certificate for M. B. Hayes. I think he may actually be Napoleon Bonaparte Hayes, or "Bone", as he was called, had a son, John Lee Hayes, and the informant on the death certificate of M. B. Hayes is listed as "J. L. Hayes, 1605 Orleans". I assume that is in Dallas. Anyway, if you do have a copy of the obituary notice, I would very much appreciate you e-mailing me a copy. My e-mail address is
Thank you very much for the great work you and the other Find A Grave contributors make that helps people like me find many of our lost relatives.

Edwin Otto Koehler #61093162
On the page it states Source: Shiner Gazette Sept 21, 1893. I was wondering if there is any more information. I have been searching for a child born to Otto Koehler and Anna Pfeil Koehler (married 1891 in Lavaca). This child would have been born after they married and died by the 1900 census and I am wondering if this could be the child. Thanks.

RE: Mary Ballew
First I want to say thank you very much for the information. I have checked out the Internet for additional information after i received your reply. I did find some blogs about the Poole-Cayton-Ballow/Ballew connection. There was no official record, but the blogs state that your information was correct, but also note that there is no official record to check and it needed further research. You can just "Google" Poole/Cayton (Keeton) and get quite a bit of information. Thank you for all of the trouble that you went to about this subject. I think I will call this a brick wall and drop it for now. eking1133

Augusta’s was my great grandmother, and her maiden name was McGuire. Her parents were Frank McGuire and Margaret Jane Vess. Margaret Vess’ mother was Menerva Millican, and her father William Vess. I’m not sure why on Augusta’s death certificate it says her father’s name was “Millican”; after all it was Augusta’s daughter, Mrs. A. H. Arant, who gave the information. But she also put “unknown’ on the rest. I hope this helps

Just wanted to say thanks for transferring those memorials to me.

I am fond of Pleasant Mound Cemetery since my dad, Richard Gordon Payne (1915-1973) is buried there. And some of my Payne ancestors are there, too.

Her obituary that stated that she was a direct descendant of Pres. Polk is not true. Pres. and Sarah (Childress) Polk could not have children although Sarah 'adopted' on of her nieces after the death of her husband, Sarah Polk (Jetton) Fall.
