RE: transfer

Will you please go to the actual memorial you want transferred and send the request through the Edit tab... Be sure and include your Find-A-Grave Memorial ID... I will take a look and see if it is one I will transfer or one that I cannot part with.

To request a transfer, addition, or correction please go to the "Edit" tab on the memorial page. If you are a member of "Find A Grave", be sure that you are signed in to your account, if you are not a member, just click the "Edit" tab. Then go to "Suggest a Correction". You can write your request to me there. This will give me a direct link to the memorial that you are referring to. For any transfers, please let me know your relationship. Please allow sufficient time for me to respond, as I am not on the computer 24/7.

RE: family transfer

Greetings! Thanks for your message. Of course, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you. However, I don't know which "Jeff" you are talking about. I have several memorials for people named Jeff. Please specify and I will be glad to transfer to you.

RE: harris family
No need in transferring, unless you just want to. If you will make these corrections, I will appreciate it:

RE: Thomas H. Harris - Find-A-Grave Memorial #66842249.

Birth: Jun. 7, 1872 - (He was born in Kelso, Lincoln County, Tennessee.)

Death: Nov. 8, 1915 - (His day of death was the 3rd... (November 3, 1915), Kelso, Lincoln County, Tennessee, USA.

According to our Family Bible, his name was Thomas Howell Harris, not Thomas Harvel Harris. Will you please update his name?

If you want to add a family link for him, he wife was Ella (Benson) Harris... Her Memorial is 50610463.

He was the son of David Harris (Memorial #66841828) and Sarah (Bray) Harris (Memorial #66842016).

(His death certificate says that he died November 3, 1915 and I can read the 3rd on the picture of the headstone you included with his memorial. Those old gravestones can be hard to read.)

If you'll make the corrections/addiitions, I will appreciate it.

Thank you for your consideration.

Hillis Family
There is a total dupe of your family in 2 cemeteries B. O. Hillis Cemetery and Blackstone O. Hillis Cemetery (Van Buren County, Tennessee).

I attempted a request to notify the other cemetery manager that their memorial was a dupe of your memorial previously posted when I notice the total duped cemetery.

It was very confusing, I hope this can be worked out.

Thanks, Marilyn

Reuben Yager #67663471
Could you please tell me where you found Reuben Yager's exact date of birth as 05 January 1781? I have researched him and his family for decades and never seen an exact DOB until now. The DOD on his stone as 06 May 1816 is actually the date his estate entered probate in Lincoln County, TN, not the date he died. His death is of record as 11 January 1815 in New Orleans, Louisiana.(Source: Mf.1460, War of 1812 Muster Rolls-Index.Adjunct General's Records.State of Tennessee. Website: Thanks! Betty #47542508

Rocky River Cemetery
I am looking for a Rocky River Cemetery in the general area of DeKalb, Warren, VanBuren Counties.
My 2nd Great Grandfather James Washington Rodgers and Grandmother Sinthey A. Evens are buried there.
They are not in your listing, but I wondered if you have contacts to the property owners to ask if they have knowledge of the residents in the cem. Burials would have been between 1900 & 1925 (guessing)
Just hoping to find a link to answer those questions.
Thanks for all of you time and efforts on the cemetery project. It is much help to those of us doing Ancestry.

Yes indeed we are distant kin. Soloman Mason, Sr (father of Soloman Jr and Eli) is my husbands 3rd great grandfather. This is so fun researching and discovering that you can find someone related. Would love to share infor with you. Thank you for taking the pictures and posting for me, this helps so much!!

RE: Fultz grave
Your GEORGE must be one of the other clans. My grandmother, Chloa, wrote down all the family records and has George Thomas born 11 Dec. 1869 which would correspond with the 1870 census. He is listed as Thomas G. 6 months in the 1870 census for Warren Co., TN - Marshall and Nancy as parents. As per obituaries, he may have died before 1940. Warren Co. was filled with Fults/Fultz and the families tended to repeat the same first names. NGL

RE: Fultz grave
My grandfather, Benjamin Harris Fultz, had a brother, George Thomas Fultz - called Thomas on census. He was born 11 Dec. 1869 and died beore 1940, but I do not know who he married. I have information on other children, Mary Jane, James Carroll, Martha Elizabth, Tennessee Caroline, John Seeman, Harriet Clark "Hattie", Sarah Ada and Wm. Prater "Prate" Fultz if any of those names "rings a bell" or if you could tell me dates of b&d of your George. I made several trip to Warren & Grundy Co. to find information.

RE: Fultz grave
I am the granddaughter of Benjamin Harris Fultz (1865 Warren Co., TN - 1940 Lincoln Co., TN) through their youngest daughter. B.H. was a son of Marshall Fultz (1833 Grundy/Warren Co., TN - 1876 Warren Co., TN - buried in Macedonia Cemetery, Warren Co. He married Nancy Caroline Campbell in 1852 Grundy Co., TN.) Marshall was a son of Elizabeth Fultz who was born about 1805 Augusta Co., VA. I've heard she later married a Smith, but I've never found proof. Elizabeth was a daughter of John and Christina Kite Fultz who moved from Rockingham Co., VA to Warren Co., TN.) My grandparents, B.H. and Chloa Belle Dearmon Fultz, left Warren Co., TN for Texas, but had to settle in Lincoln Co., TN due to her health. How does your husband descend from FULTZ? I will share my email if you want. NGL

Fultz grave
I sent you an email today regarding my grandmother's maiden name showing on ARP Prosperity Cemetery listing in Lincoln Co., TN. She was Chloa Belle Dearmon Fultz, a grandmother I never knew.

Albert Floyd Cemetery is a long way from Lawrence County, it is on the west side of Wayne county. Do you know where in Lawrence county they lived?

I am related to the Hillis family by my Grandmother's maiden name, I visited this cemetary, but had a hard time doing the research on my own on how I was related to them....

RE: hillis line
This morning I have sent two messages to the e-mail address associated with your name. Please let me know if you don't receive them. The first contains what info I have on the family, and the second contains the scan of the pages from Wells History that I mentioned.

RE: hillis family
I have a little on the Hillis line; more on the Ritchey line. The Ritcheys intermarried into several of my ancestral lines.

Judge J.W. Wells published a history of Cumberland Co. in 1946 or 1947. He had a sketch on the Ritchey line that I followed to feather out the bare information that he gave.

John V. Hillis is the earliest generation I have. I would be glad to scan the section in Judge Wells' history and e-mail it to you, and will share what I have, although not much of it is early generations.

RE: mason family
oh thank you for taking the time to respond and do this for me. Joseph Benson Mason is my husband's 3rd great grandfather. I believe Jospeh is the son of Soloman Mason (4h great grandfather) and Polly Jones who I have a brother listed for Soloman as Eli Mason born in 1817.
Would that be correct? I haven't researched yet to find sources to show. Any information you can provide me would be much appreciated. Thank you so much again!
