|sticksandstones||Donnie M Freeman at Dix|
Just curious, have you found many name conflicts between the markers placed in the 1990s at Dix and the patients death certificates?
I just wonder where they got Willie from, unless it was because the ink was so badly faded and it was a case of simply misreading the name.

And it sounds like fine... I had meant to include Permelia Lee Baker's birth and death death but I have a bad habit of thinking faster than I type! Unfortunately my laptop had a huge hiccup today and we are in the midst of doing a reprogram once done(it is) and everything is back in place I shall send those dates on to you to include if you like... that will take a bit of time.. Also I got your previous email as well regarding Margaret Bradford and had been doing some checking and shall send what I have a bit later... I have lost about a 1/3 of photos/documents through owner error during this issue with my laptop!!! yes that's me... but nothing that I was researching on the Bradfords, it is the Bakers I that am descending from but I try and do a whole family, spouses and so on to complete the picture.
Thanks for including my info on Pearl or Annie.
with kind regards,

|gerry bolding||hess allen|
Found Hess on Ancestry. Born around 1917. Died 1995 in Cincinnati Ohio. He is listed in Ala. convict record. He was convicted on Mar. 27, 1939. In the 1940 census he is listed as living with his father (Charles) and mother (Jennie). Their neighbors are Elick Bradford, Dick, Jerlean and Mary Nelle. This indicates that Alex (Elick)was still alive in 1940.

|gerry bolding||Old Baptist Cemetery Bradfords|
I spoke with you a couple of years ago about Birdie Bradford's family. I am her granddaughter, Gerry Bolding. I am trying to contact her other grandchildren:
Diane Bradford (Bruce's daughter)
Mike, Debbie and Sissy (Dick's children)
If you know of anyone who might know how I can locate them, please let me know.
I am sure the females are married and I don't know their last names.
Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

|Suzannah McCuen||Broughton Hospital cemetery|
Hi. Just a note to correct some information posted in one of the messages below. The graves at Broughton are marked with flat aluminum and brass markers placed years ago by a Boy Scout working on his Eagle project. Prior to that they were all marked by brass tags suspended on a chain that ran the length of each row. All of the graves at Broughton are identified and each person buried there has been researched as far as possible using Ancestry.com databases. All of the graves at Broughton have been photographed and photos of the markers posted on Find A Grave. Now I am working to do the same sort of research for those buried at Cherry Hospital which appears to have the largest cemetery (actually three burial areas) but the lowest percentage marked. I look forward to seeing the end result of the research you and others are doing on those buried at Dix. It is fascinating work. The responses I have received from family members (with a single exception) have been warm and appreciative.

Looks like others have been busy recently with photos as well. Thanks for adding the wall photo. You might add a small blurb to your photo to explain how the stones got there, and that they are no longer right over the grave any longer. I wonder how many they had, and where they are today.

Thanks Annette for the bios written up on some of Dix's deceased residents. I appreciate the time taken to put those together, and leaves them not quite so forgotten. Perhaps our work will help unite them with disconnected family.

|Rosemary Os||Frances Catherine Washington Arendale|
Hi. I was surprised and delighted to find the photographs in the Washington Family Cemetery.
Matthew and Catherine were my grand father's great-grandparents. I do not see my grandfather's grandmother listed as being a child in your Find-a-Grave Record. Frances Catherine Washington was married to Richard Arendale, Capt. CSA (married 11-5-65) and is buried in Rocky Springs Cemetery in Bridgeport. This genealogical information has been passed down for many generations. I remember hearing about "Aunt Mazie Washington" ever since I was a little girl.
Where did you get those pictures?
I live in New Bern North Carolina. My grand father was Claude Rudder from Bridgeport. My mother's family are Hollands from Scottsboro. I have lots and lots of first cousins in Scottsboro.
Do you know anything about Frances Catherine?
Thanks so much, Rosemary Rudder Osterhus

|sticksandstones||RE: Dix Hospital Cemetery|
I'd love to have any and all information you have for these 'forgotten' souls. I've been to Dix a number of times myself. I'm glad the project to add markers in the early 90s was done. At the companion hospital at the other end of the state, Broughton, has a little cemetery up on the hill behind the maintenance building. The only markers for the graves are concrete posts with chains draped through them, with a small numbered tag to identify the deceased. From what I hear, Dix had the same thing. Any way we can return some dignity to these families is well worth the effort.

I just thought it would be helpful if some of us that take pictures in the Wake County area met at a resturaunt or coffee shop some time to visit and learn from each other.
Just interesting to meet folks with the same interest as mine.
Just a thought?

|Find AL Graves 2||Matilda Fennell|
Sorry for the 1st message sent in error. I've got to remember to not touch the "enter" key...it sends a message before you are ready. A few months ago, you sent me a message stating that you added a photo for Matilda Fennell, # 63346758. It is a beautiful photograph! My husband and I went to the cemetery this week and added a headstone photo for her. Just wondering, if you are researching her family, are you aware of the Fennell family history in Guntersville?
