RE: Highlighted names
I will have to e-mail you the instructions on the link that creates what you are talking about. There is an explanation on the Find a grave front page of theirs. It can be found where it says 'Help with Find a Grave. But it's hard to understand unless you know what you're doing. When I get a chance, I'll e-mail you how to do it.

Thank you for flowering my memorials. Each & every flower never goes unnoticed and are deeply appreciated.

Hello Gwen, It was a pleasure to see that you recently visited my Mom & family. Glad to know you are doing OK. I just recently returned to flowering and have been missing everyone.

Take care & best regards to all.

BTW: Tell Karl Hi & will be visiting soon.

RE: Highlighted names
Hi Gwen,
Thanks for getting in touch.
I cannot remember how to do it, but seem to recall that I copied someone's and then altered the details to change to the people I wanted to high light. So feel free to use mine and see if it works. I will also ask my son to see if he can remember too.
Welcome back to Find A Grave.

Thank you for searching the Abbeville Cemetery for Thomas TIDWELL for me. I appreciate the time and effort you put into looking for his gravestone. His was probably one of those stones that was so old that it is unreadable. Thank you again for your time and trouble. Joyce DAY

Hello Gwen, you are so welcome. From his memorial it sounds like he led an exciting life. I visit Karl's memorials periodically, so it's nice to meet you for the 1st time. Karl & I have been
friends for almost a year now. [Time does fly]

I also ran across 'Julie' and visited "Mary Sue Brakefield Barnett. And tried to bring up "Francis" but drats, my laptop cut me off???? I finally got back on & will try & go to Francis now.

Take care Gwen & thanks for your nice note.

Abbeville Cemetery
Dear Gwen,

Thanks ever so much for the photos of Harris and Almond graves. I really appreciate it a lot. I can't quite make out the writing on John Harris' stone. I was wondering if you could make it out on the original picture. I just want to make sure that the dates and such that I've put on the memorial are correct. In any case, I appreciate your efforts.

Thank you very much for taking photos of my great-great grandparents. You do a great public service.

Just a long shot, but are you any relation to Walter G. Sanders, who also lived in Mississippi? He married in to this same family.

Thank you,
Dear Gwen,
Thank you for visiting & remembering my sister in law, Mary Ockenden on her angel day.
Leaving a token was very thoughtful and means a lot to me & my family.
I am sorry that I have not sent you this note sooner, but my family has once again lost a member to cancer.
This time my Great Aunt Jo Ockenden, who passed away on 14th September 2009.
I feel a great sense of loss, because through her I got to know my Great Grandfather, who was her dear Father.

RE: Hipp Cemetery
Gwen,dont worry about it if you have trouble finding it.I found the Hipp Cem. in the Lafayette County and it was done in 1978 and it was copied in 1969 so the cemetary may be overgrown.It say's it's approximately 1-1/2 miles south of what used to be Dallas, the woods.S21 T10S R1W.Please do not risk getting snake bit.Bob Hillhouse (and thanks again for everything)
