Wanda -
I continue to be "obituary challenged" when it comes to copying and pasting obits from The Florence Times to findagrave. Would you be kind enough to copy the obit for this woman? Her obituary is on pg 5 of the May 7th, 1940 listing. It's actually the May 8th issue and says "Mrs. McKelvy, 75, taken by death" and is next to the crossword.
Thanks so much! I owe you big time for this!!

George Hull
Would you like me to transfer this memorial to you. We are not related, I had a request for a Hull at Garden of Memories and I always take a picture of all headstones with the same surname as the request. If they are not posted, I post them to the cemetery. Most of the time it makes the families very happy to get more relatives then just the one they asked for.

I made the change. If you do want the memorial transferred let me know.

RE: Bonnie Hargett
I was thinking Find A Grave was managing his memorials but now I'm not sure. I will ask for transfers and see if that helps. I have spent a lot of time editing Wilton's memorials. Misspelled words and incorrect dates are the biggest problems.

Wilton Golson created this memorial without taking the time to separate the Old Belgreen from the New Belgreen Cemeteries. Wilton is retired, so I cannot ask him to transfer Bonnie's memorial to me. The Old Belgreen Cemetery is located by the Methodist Church and across the street by the Fire Department. New Belgreen is located by the Baptist Church, about a 100 yards East of the Old Belgreen Cemetery. I created the duplicate with some reservations as I try not to duplicate whenever possible. I only did so to add family links.

I do not think that this is the correct obit for this Martha Tubbs.
This lady is 92 years old.
I got an email from family members.
Maybe we can find out who this obit belongs to.
If not you should add her if she belongs in the Crook Oak Cemetery
If you will look at the date of the news paper article I think it says Feb 17 1949.

Dear Wanda,

Your kind heart is reflected in your warm smile. If only everyone on Find A Grave were like you, this site would be close to heaven.

Thanks! You're right and I've done that very thing myself. That was an older one of mine when I didn't know any better :)

RE: Paul Quinn
I'm sorry Wanda. I've done so many requests that I've forgot where Paul Quinn was buried. Could you send me a copy of my request to refresh my memory? Sammy

RE: Thanks!
Hello Wanda!

You are very welcome for the transfer of Jackson Sockwell to your care. I have transferred all Sockwell memorials that I have created to your care. I'm sure your cousin, Bertha would be thrilled that you and others are continuing her work. My mother would have been even more addicted to genealogy research had she lived to experience the computer age. But ... I wouldn't trade the time I spent with her going to the State Libraries and visiting the basements of old county courthouses to search old ledgers for anything in the world. We so wanted to "camp out" overnight on cots so we could wake up and begin searching right away again the next morning.

Wishing you great success in your continued research.

Best Regards,

I was curious if you could give me more information on the photo you posted of Benjamin Franklin Carpenter. We are trying to determine if he is our great-great grandfather. Any help you could provide, thanks!

Dear Wanda,

I'm grateful to you for creating the Memorials for Fred and Mae (Kilburn) Parker, AND for the wonderful headstone photos you've added to their pages. Thank-you for the transfer of these two Memorials.

YOU did the work, we are the benefactors of your efforts...

God Bless You!

Martha A. Horton

I would appreciate it if you would transfer the memorial for Martha A. Horton in Mount Pleasant Methodist Cemetery to me. She is my grandmother. I would like to add what information that I know about her to the memorial. She is also one of my brick walls in my family research. She was the second wife of James S. Horton. He and his first wife Ida Rena Staples are buried in the same cemetery.

If anyone stumbles upon this message and knows anything about her, I would appreciate it if they would contact me. I have her father listed as David Colburn, and her mother's maiden name is supposedly Kimbrough. I can find no record of her birth, marriage to James Smith Horton, or death in Alabama records. James Smith Horton's headstone reads "Jim Horton" in the same cemetery.

I deleted my copy of his page. I do have one Kirby in my dad's family: I have a distant cousin, Laura Bell (McGee)(1884-1951) who married a Daniel Sidney Kirby (1866-1932). Is he in any of your Kirbys? I also live on land that has many Kirby/Kerbys listed in the abstract. I'm not far from Old Bethel Cemetery. Small world. :)

Mathis-Davis Cemetery
Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into looking for the grave of James J. Whitlock. I had heard that the cemetery had really fallen into disrepair but had also heard that there were local relatives that were planning to go in there and clean it up as a group effort. This was suppose to have happened some time last year. It may have been a bigger job than anyone expected. Or maybe they couldn't get permission. How sad to know that it may soon be lost to us completely.

I see your name often on the memorials of my family members. Thank you so much for all that you do.

Thank You!
Wanda, thank you so much for your kind message to me about the Gargis cemetery and my Lindsey kinfolks buried there. I appreciate all you've done to create memorial pages for many folks related to me in north AL.

Thanks for offering to transfer memorials to me if I'd want to manage those of kinfolks. I'll keep that in mind as I try to link my own direct Lindsey line to parents and siblings at Find a Grave. I think the Lindsey descendants in Gargis are all from the line of Dennis Lindsey and Anna Woodruff, and not my direct line, which is the line of Dennis's half-brother (as we believe) Mark Lindsey and wife Mary Jane Dinsmore.

Wanda, thank you so much for making the change re: Ora Woodruff. You've absolutely right: old newspapers would be a great way to teach history to young folks. They're chock-full of information, and they show us how people processed the news in the past (and what their biases about particular issues were). Thank you again for all you do to make so much available here.
