Francis and Robert Beckett
Hello, These two young children were "uncles" to my mother Pearl. I am looking for information about Martha _____ Beckett, their mother. Martha was my mother's grandmother. I know that Martha was born around 1844 and she died after the 1900 Federal census. She was married to Albert Beckett. I have very little information and this is for my family history. Thank you.. Shirley Miller at Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Walter Henry Parker picture
Hi Joy!

I just found the wonderful picture of my great-grandparents, Walter Henry & Julia Parker with their three daughters on his findagrave site. Thank you so much for posting. I have never seen this picture. Could I please use this picture on my account? (I will give you credit for the posting.)

Many thanks!

Thank You
Thank you for your recent photograph of Jo Anna Snider Taylor's tombstone and her sister' grave (Glenda Sue Snider Carlisle). How big is the Harwood Cemetery? In Find A Grave, there are only 36 listed graves. I'm trying to locate other Snider and Taylor family members. Are you aware of any others in the cemetery?
Thanks again,
Arvada, Colorado

Naomi Johnson
I received a message from you today that states regarding my photo request. "According to the book "Madison County Cemetery Book 2", Naomi Johnson does not have a tombstone here, but instead her grave is marked only with a native fieldstone which does not have her name on it. She is listed in the section of the book titled "buried here in unknown location"."

Which cemetery is this referring to? My Grandmother Naomi's sister who attended her funeral told me she was buried in St. Paul, AR.

How can I re-phrase my request to see if there is a native fieldstone that could be photographed and at which cemetery?

Thank you so much for your attention to this request.

Charles Neighbors
Paula Kaye Benson
Hi Joy,
My name is Charles Neighbors. I am the nephew of William John Benson & Argie (Stepp) Benson. Their daughter, (my cousin), Paula Kaye is buried at Evans Cemetery at Spoke Plant, Ark. I was 9 yrs old and living in California when she died at one week old in 1953 and I don't remember her personally.
Her name was brought up at a family get together just recently and thanks to your picture on find a grave I was able to see her headstone and I feel like I was introduced to a long lost cousin.
Thank you for the work that you do. It is very much appreciated.

I have just started doing family research and ran across this photo of James M. Johnson grave site, and wondered how you know this is his headstone? The picture doesn't show any names, just not sure if this is documented somewhere. I appreciate all your work. Just learning how these older cemeteries are found and documented. Thank you.

Witter and McAdoos
Don't know what key I hit to mess up my msg. Wanted to thank you for all the work you have done for my family and others searching for their ancestors. I have visited Witter School Chapel Cemetery and was moved by the feeling I got when I was there. My greatgrandfather Elijah Green McAdoo was a preacher there at one time before traveling to Marshall Co., Ok. The Kecks and the McAdoos in this cemetery are almost all my relatives. Hope to visit there again, sometime. Would love to meet you. Thank you again.

Joy you must not have been to her grave. She is not buried in Bud Patrick Cemetery. I have been to her cemetery in Section 06-15-29, Washington CO AR, Black Oak Road, south of Fayetteville AR. How did you think you was getting away from the correct location? Both Mike and I have been there and have the pictures Please correct. Thanks Alvin Derby

Old Thomas Place Graves
The pictures of this cemetery are not opening on the website. I was hoping you might be able to fix it so I could save them to my computer.

We are planning to try to visit several of the cemeteries and courthouse in Madison County this summer. My maiden name was Thomas and they are family members. Having the pictures would help us locate these tiny cemeteries that are on private land.

Also, can you tell me where the land owners live for this one and the Thomas/Drain Cemetery so we can get permission to visit the cemeteries.

Thank you,
Jean Thomas Cloke

Just curious. Is there similar type of group in Washington County? Especially looking for books of Washington County Cemeteries. Thought maybe FAY library might have, but haven't been there yet.

RE: Horn Cemetery
This is me! 48022374. I'm glad you are still forging ahead with collecting history.

I've been having fun importing and tagging about 1,300 photos that my dad scanned of his side of the family. My aunt and great aunt are helping me ID some of the ones that aren't written down. Went with Mom to Harrell and Old Union cemeteries in Cincinnati today.

Thanks again!

I love this website and am so glad I found it. John was my Great grandfather and I know very little about my family. I do know something is wrong with his information on here. It says he married Josephine in 1893 but she died in 1879, before he married my Great grandmother. Can you help with this.

Birth: Nov. 8, 1851
Death: Nov. 22, 1928

Son of Abraham M. Hinds

Husband of #1, Josephine BOHANNAN Hinds, married 19 January 1893

Husband of #2, Winnie HARP Hinds, married 21 July 1887

Family links:
W. Bell Hinds (1869 - 1946)
Josephine Bohannan Hinds (1855 - 1879)*
