Obits and suggestions
Thank you adding the obits and taking my suggestions. I know I forward quite a bit but I really like to see the stories continue and this way when a stone says "not forgotten" it is true. Thanks again for all your help. Barbara

Moragne Headstones

Thanks very much for the nice headstone images, I appreciate it very much.

You upload Fannie's headstone twice. Probably one needs to be deleted.

RE: Denice Linnet Mut Smith
Thanks for your offer, but no. Let's wait and maybe someone with close ties to the family would like to have the Muts memorials to care for, and I'll gladly transfer mine as well.

RE: Moragne's

I have made memorials for the Moragne family members at Coal Town Cemetery. Unfortunately I have reached my limit this week for headstones requests. Soon as they allow me I will make the requests.

John William and Mary Francis Smith Moragne had another child Nettie Ruth Moragne born April, 1892 in MS. I do not know if she lived to adult hood and/or married. If you run across a grave that fits this person, please let me know!

Thanks very much for your help!
