not sure if it has been brought to your attention or not but this is a duplicate memorial and it appears that the other was entered first...

Sandra (Grissom) Hudson
Hammersleys buried at Mount Olive Cemetery, Lawrence County, Indiana
Hi - I put the correct number for John Daniels mother on his Find a Grave memorial. Are you related to any of the Hammersleys buried at Mount Olive? My mother, Mary Catherine (Hammersley) Grissom is buried at Mount Olive.

JOSEPH B. CANDLER # 60852935
ALEXANDRA, JOSEPH B. CANDLER'S father, DANIEL CANDLER, SR. died in 1860 (born 1788 Campbell Co VA-died 1860 Campbell Co VA) probably about a year before the CIVIL WAR started. However, JOSEPH B. CANDLER'S brother, DANIEL CANDLER, JR. is probably the PRIVATE you're referring to who served as a Confederate in the 3rd VIRGINIA RESERVES in the CIVIL WAR (I said SERVED not necessarily FOUGHT). You do have a memorial to DANIEL CANDLER, JR. (he may be the one you're referring to). NEWS FLASH__>> Oh I'm sorry, it just dawned on me that I may have misinterpreted what you are saying about the CIVIL WAR service. That you probably mean that JOSEPH B. CANDLER (born on MAY 1st) not his father, DANIEL CANDLER, SR. did the military service. The way you have it worded I could interpret either way. SORRY ! You know the LYNCHBURG, BEDFORD-CAMPBELL County-CANDLERS of CANDLER('S) MOUNTAIN (just south of LIBERTY UNIVERSITY CAMPUS) & VIRGINIA, NORTH CAROLINA, & GEORGIA share ancestors back in ENGLAND & IRELAND with the CANDLERS of BOSTON, NEW YORK CITY, OHIO, INDIANA, ILLINOIS, & MICHIGAN to name a few. -------------------------------------------------------------------------Let me know if you have any interest in the CANDLER FAMILY. THANX, MITCH FAULK

Julie Hampton
Hammersley of Campbell Co, VA
I'm not related but found a death notice for a Hammersley and was trying to figure out who it was since his first name was not mentioned. He was a planter of Campbell county, Va who was returning from Lynchburg when he was murdered. The article appeared in The Danbury Reporter, Danbury, North Carolina, Thursday, December 3, 1885. Since you seem to be the Hammersley expert, thought I'd ask!

re "Ann Alcan Henry," wife of Fayette Henry
FYI, just needed to correct a glitch in her maiden name. The correct name is Elcan, from the Elcans of Buckingham County, VA. Many thanks for all your work on the site! :)

Earnest Hammersley
Re: #50409672. Earnest married Josephine Burnett, my grandfather Frank Jackson's sister. Beulah Baptist Church lists Earnest's middle name as Victor. Is it Vaughn or Victor? I would like to enter it correctly in my Book on the Burnett family. Thank you.

Sylvia Habel
Holt Family of Virginia
Dear Alexandra,

I believe we are relatives through the Holt Family and probably other family lines as well.

If you don't already have one there is a Holt
Family CD that Marvin Berkley put together.
My Great Grandfather is Willis McGruder Holt.
He had my Grandmother, Bessie Elizabeth Holt and she married Clarence Fisher Garfield Childress.
If you don't have a copy I will share it with you. From reading your profile on Find A Grave you have been a busy lady. I will be glad to share what I have. There are pictures on my
Childress Family Tree if you would like to see them.

I saw that you had set up the page for Rumble Fuller. I am looking for information for his wife Susan. I am a descendant and if you could help me, I would appreciate it. Or if someone placed the request that might be a descendant.

Darrell Landrum
Steven Hammersley
I went out to Fort Hill Cemetery here in Lynchburg yesterday to try and get a photo for you. Unfortunately, his grave is not marked. There is a lady named Thelma Witt in the grave beside his. I took photos of her grave and the unmarked one that is his. If you would like those photos, let me know and I will post them.

Best regards,

Hi there! Working on the Shackletons in my tree, I came across this memorial of yours. I already have his parents: father, James A. Shackleton #6095975 & Mary Agnes Arvin Shackleton #15167065. Would you kindly link Clarence to them? Thanks a lot and enjoy your day...

spelling of last name
Find A Grave Memorial# 17795998 Edward HAMMERSLY
created by Kenneth Pohl
contains a note from you. your last name is HAMMERSLEY

poster Joyce Warren who posted Find A Grave Memorial# 67416401 Sarah Anise Shyrock HAMERSLEY
is the granddaughter of Edward and Sarah and says this is the correct spelling

Edward himself spells his name HAMMERSLEY on his WWI draft card.

Is there any way to resolve these conflicting spellings of the last name?
