Ernest Council Stephenson
Thank you for the comments of the photography. I received this photo from a Stephenson descendant named Craig Blackshear. I have other photos of this man and they are all similar. I do believe this is Ernest Council. I will make a note of that on the memorial.
Thank you,

Avra Family
Thanks for the notification about the duplication of the Avra family. I'm not sure how that happened since I always verify first. Regardless...I don't have any problem deleting but I see that the other records don't have the family links on them. Have you made recommendations to the owner of the other memorials to add these links? I don't recall who provided them but I would hate for them to be deleted without first updating the other memorials.

Thank you
Thank you for untangling the two cemeteries. I changed the memorial per your request. Also, I can transfer Zachariah's memorial to you if you wish.

Tennell Cemetery
Hi Lindsey,
Another FAGer went to the cemetery and took pictures. His feedback is as follows:

"There are only 8 burials at this location, only five of which have headstones, and all of them are recent (since 1980). I don't think any of the memorials first added to this cemetery, incl Mr. Roquemore, are buried here as this is a modern, AME (black) church. Does a source specify his burial location? Perhaps there was a historically white antecedent to Tennille AME at another location."

I think he's right - there's probably another Tennell (Tennille) cemetery in the area. Any idea on where that may be? I don't have any information one way or the other aside from the problem reported above.

RE: Tennell Cemetery
Hi Lindsey,
Yes, I know what you mean. I'll keep an eye out for the small ones. And I read your note about the technique for reading older headstones - it was helpful.
As I've been using findagrave as part of my ancestry research, I occasionally run across an older ancestor whose final resting place is not known. More often than not, someone had archived cemetery markers in the past and captured the resting place before it became unknown and forgotten. Sometimes the marker is forgotten, sometimes the graveyard is forgotten, or both. But I am grateful that people took the time to capture this information when it was available.

Hi Lindsey,
Thank you for the information. It was very helpful. If there's anything I can do to help you achieve your goal, let me know. I don't have much time, but I can always help out a FAGer who has put so much work into Find A Grave.

Tennell Cemetery
Hi Lindsey,
Thank you for all the work you've put into findagrave. I noticed that you've entered memorials for Tennell Chapel Cemetery in Alabama. I was wondering how you where able to determine that these memorials are located there? My own family research indicates that a very distant relative (Zachariah Roquemore) is buried there. But I haven't been able to locate any official records or transcriptions for the cemetery to confirm this. Any information would be most helpful.

Needham Lee Photo - Problem
Just a quick note of THANKS for trying to get the photo for me. At least now I know why no one in the family has a photo of the grave.

Cathe a Day descendant
RE: Barron
Thank you for the information.
Do you have an email other than Find a grave? Mine is

Thanks for the help with Cay/Kay.

Do you know anything about Samuel Barron's daughter? npbarron indicates she was Mary Theresa and married Russion Beall. Bell is another spelling of Beall used in census records and three Bell children lived with Samuel and Eliza in 1860 in Barbour Co. as well as Leonard Bell living with Ridley and Jane.

Ridley was a wonderful person, training each son in a trade. John W. was a carriage maker and Leonard was a shoemaker. Leonard was talked about in the family letters as adopted. I doubt it was a legal adoption.

If you take the time to look you will see that my memorial was created first so therefore it is not the one that needs to be deleted.

Please make correction to Aunt Elma's memorial. Her maiden name was Dawson not Sanford. Sanford was her father's middle name.

RE: Barron
I transferred Jane Barron, I don't manage Ridley's memorial. I don't need anything in return, I just thought this would be the best way to handle Jane's memorial since I'm not related to the family and have no information on her.

Jane Barron
Rather than deciding who has the correct information on Jane Barron, I would rather give the management of her memorial to someone who is related to her and has the time to verify all the information. Would you like the memorial transferred to you?

Hi Lindsey,
Our friend Jim (JEM #46846771) passed this past September and I am trying to inform those that left messages on his home page.
As soon as his family releases Jim's obituary records so that they can continue Jim's work they will inform you if they have the obituaries that you are looking for.
