RE: regarding memorials
I can see that you put a lot of work into it, but Butterfly Kisses has also done a good job and I have had no problems making edits to those memorials. When I find duplicates I always make links and edits to the first memorial to be created, and it is tiresome going back and forth between two sets of memorials.
Also, I'm not a big fan of census records copied into memorials.
Please delete the duplicates in Pavilion Cemetery.

Colonel Christopher Tomplins IV
born 1785-

Do you know whether he served in the War of 1812? The records I have found for Christopher Tompkinses in that War (from Virginia) say he was a Private or a Major, not a Colonel.

Do I have your permission to use the photo you posted of John Carter in my genealogy documentation? He was my 10th great grandfather. I would be interested in any other documents or photos you would be willing to share.

Patti Chamberlin
Lambert Family
I want to personally thank you on behalf of the Lambert family and extended family for all the work you have done for my family. I have been searching for some of this information for a very long time. I did add a little information about my sister (Penny Lynn Chamberlin), who is the grandaughter of Willie and Gracie Lambert and is buried near them. My twin brothers are also buried there, next to our sister I believe. They just have a small stone marker. They were born and died on May 13, 1953 in Huntington.

Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Raymond Tompkins
Fanny G. Smead Tompkins Correction
Hi there. I stand corrected regarding Fanny's maiden name. She is, in fact, a Smead. I did a lot of additional research, and found her in the 1850 and 1860 Census records, and sorted out the other Smead family members in the Machpelah cemetery. Her mother, Alvina, married John S. Chase, her second husband. Still cannot determine the first name of her first husband. An educated guess is it could be George C. Smead (1821-1846). Sorry for the confusion. Raymond Tompkins

Raymond Tompkins
Fanny G. Smead Tompkins
Good evening. Based on the marriage certificate of Osmond S. Tompkins and Fanny G. Smead, and Le Roy Gazette newspaper articles, we believe her maiden name is Chase and that she married a Smead before Osmond. Specifically, the marriage certificate states "Osmond S. Tompkins of Morris, Ill and F. G. Smead of Warsaw on Oct 6th, 1865 at J. S. Chases . . . ". Newspaper articles 2 May 1894, "Mrs. F. G. Tompkins, accompanied by her daughter Flora, is visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Chase, of Warsaw, this week." and 21 March 1894 "Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Chase, of Warsaw, are spending a week with their daughter, Mrs. Fanny G. Tompkins." This is just FYI and perhaps if you find this true, can adjust her findagrave information. Take care, Raymond Tompkins

RE: Capt William Daniel Tompkins
I will check to see if the Tompkins cemetery was ever surveyed and if it has a separate ID number. I noticed that the stone for Capt Tomkins has "In memory of" at the top. That practice usually indicates that the body was not buried there; the stone was truly a memorial. I will have to get back to you when I have more details.

RE: Capt William Daniel Tompkins
You MIGHT be correct. My information was obtained from a cemetery survey conducted for Bedford County in 1992. The other memorial may have given the wrong name to the cemetery.

I'm the contributor of Thomas Chamberlayne (#77415133) and Elizabeth Stratton (#77415184) ... my direct line. You are the contributor of Wilhelmina Byrd's memorial (#44571348), she m. 1752 to Thomas Chamberlayn (no info.) It's possible he was the s/o Thomas Chamberlayne and Elizabeth Stratton.

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that I have added a photo of her tombstone to her memorial. I will be adding others for this cemetery over the next couple days as I photographed all that were legible this past weekend. Hope this helps! Trish

Mr. P
RE: Frances Olivia Tompkins
That may be correct. I am not privy to my desktop with all its files. Also, I noticed at Lydia Purcel Headen Tompkins; grave that I had not switched my footstone photo for a photo of the headstone. I did not have the headstone photo but went back to the cemetery and got the photo.

Since your are a Tompkins I will transfer these memorials to you if you want them.

Though I am the Murphy family historian and Lydia's mother is Elizabeth Murphy Headen I feel that you should have them if you want them.

I am a son of William Harrison Marrs , and I believe/know your death dates are incorrect , Daddy died around 1965.

We were living in West Va. , when daddy passed away and moved back to Virginia.

I was attending school at Patterson , Va. in 1967 , and daddy had already passed away.
