I trying to find Lewis family members with such injuries.
Thank you, Mary Lewis

Roy priest edit/correction
Thank you for the correction of the death year - an obvious error. Also, Roy Priest is a grandson of William Priest who also came from Wales. I have a hand written copy of his journal with documentation of many of William's descendants. Perhaps you have run across his journal in your Priest research.

Please disregard my previous message, was sent to you by mistake.

Re: Will Lang

Apparently, we are both related to the Lang family. At this time, I have been adding info to the memorials I have management of and would prefer to keep them for now.

For many years, I have visited the Sumner Cemetery and placed flowers on the Lang graves once or twice a year. It appears no one else takes the time and/or they live too far away to visit.

I hope you don't mind sharing the Lang family.

RE: Transfer of Noah Priest
Thank you so much for transferring my great great grandparents. I was not aware of the Priest Reunion in Ohio, but thank you for letting me know. :) I knew there were a lot of Priests around Ohio, though. My lineage: Noah > Albert > Keith (living) > Barbara (living) > Myself.

Could you tell me if this cemetary & Junction Cemetary are the same cemetaries. I have a conflict with a relative. I have been to Junction Cemetary & found my great grandmother. Helen says she is buried in St,Mary's cemetery because she was catholic. She moved all of our relatives into St. Mary's & I made her move them back. Thank You for your help.

This article states his wife's maiden name as Susan Ellen Hupp.
On Susan Ellen Priest's page , you have her maiden name listed as Susan Ellen Nichols. Which one is correct or was she married to a Nichols first? Thanks

Cupps - Erie Co., New York
I noticed you have a memorial for Jesse Cupps. I just listed a Bianca Cupps (wife of Jesse) b. 1805, died 1836 in Lancaster which is just outside Buffalo, Erie Co., New York. Would you happen to know if she could be a first wife to your Jesse? Thank you.

Jay Wright
Cordelia/Cordia Ladd Priest
Many thanks, William, for finding the death certificate for Cordelia/Cordia Ladd Priest and uploading it to her memorial earlier in the week. In my email inbox, your message looked like one of the copies of my own out-going SACs, and I missed it until today. I'd bet anything I looked for that death certificate myself, but I must not have found it -- possibly because I would have been looking for Cordelia instead of Cordia. It shows why it's so great when we can work _together_ on Find A Grave. Sometimes four eyes are better than two. ~ Jay

This memorial updated also. I don't like to assume relationships that I don't know for sure. Someone created a memorial for one of my ancestors and they had them linked to her brother as her spouse, LOL! Most of the time I research the peple in my memorials to link family members in the same cemetery but I just added the Priest memorials the other night and haven't got to it, yet. Thank you!

Melissa Stickles
Priest's in Fuller Cemetery, Laurens, Otsego Co., NY
I linked Edson Priest's parents to him and added Otsego Co. to his birth and death events, per your request. If you'd like transfers just let me know. I am no relation but I like to add memorials to the small, older, usually family cemeteries, that seem to be often "forgotten" in time...
I did not find a wife for Edson in this cemetery. He is buried with his parents and three of his children that died very young. Sad.

Thank you for the additional information. PTL that Warren is still alive. I did not make a memorial for him I only mentioned that he was listed on the headstone so that makes my statement correct. He is not buried there.

RE: Scott P. Russell
Thank you, William. I didn't know it was possible to transfer an entry to someone else. Thank you also for taking the time and effort to add Association Cemetery to Find A Grave. Many people will benefit from your generosity.
