I follow the Find A Grave guidelines for transfer and uncles do not fall into their guidelines for transfer. I did lots of research on this memorial and have added all I could find. If you have anything to add just use the edit tab and I will update. Thx Janet.

Mathilda Miller edit
I declined your edit for Mathilda's (Mathilde) name because of Find A Grave naming conventions. I did however, edited her name to agree with your suggestion. If she is your family and you would like to maintain her memorial, please let me know. Thank you for your contributions.

RE: Highlighted names
Hope my "SPECIAL "HOW TO HELP" FOR MY FELLOW FIND A GRAVE VOLUNTEERS USING HTML CODE" on my contributor page may have explained why some words are in bold print or highlighted. Just curious when you were seeking help about "highlighted names" how you found my contributor page?

Rose Julia & Samuel Lucas
I have added a bio for Rose Julia VandeVoorde Lucas and Samuel C. Lucas per your suggestion. I did make some minor changes so you may want to look at their memorials. If you are family, I will gladly transfer if you wish.

Morris Cemetery
Not sure if you knew this was online or not, but a couple of us put together a cemetery listed as Morris Cemetery which I think was one of the names that Union Chapel North Cemetery may have been at some point in time. I'm not sure when it changed but I knew it went by different names at various times.

RE: Photos of Abraham Green Ricketts (2009)
Thanks Bob,
Although a public thank you wasn't really necessary it is sincerely appreciated. I think I derived just about as much pleasure as possible just being able to do the "workup" on the Morris Cemetery that I was able to do. That has been among my more adventurous attempts. I love it when you have to use USGS maps to get coordinates and use a handheld GPS to even find it. Have done that on several occasions and feel an even bigger thrill when I realize I was probably the first in many years to have visited a cemetery. Its even a greater challenge when you have to time a visit with the hunting seasons. LOL It was a pleasure to get what little was there to get. I believe I later realize there should be Hanna ancestors that are supposed to be buried there but that is just strong speculation. Some mysteries of history are never to be solved but sometimes they DO get solved.... just have to keep trying. I was blessed to have had Dad (Curtis Gant)at the age of 88 on that adventure with me. He passed away less than two years later. Thanks for the opportunity to help and to add that to my memories with him.

Ruth Ann Jarrell Ricketts
Margaret Ricketts Lee
Bob I added the information you suggested to Margaret's Find a grave page...her dates of birth on death certificate and affidavit is conflicting but do not know which is right so have added it to her memorial page. Since no birth certificate was recorded we have to go by what we can find in the records to complete our family history. Thank you

RE: abraham green ricketts
Yes, I figured that Drury Hearn Ricketts was married once before Judah. But i haven't been able to find out her name yet. Her last name might have been Green since it was Abraham's middle name. Do you have anything else on this? Thanks, Martha Rickett Pettus.

Hi Bob,
My name is Martha Rickett Pettus and I am a direct descendent of Drury Hearn Rickett and Judah Jones. Do you have any info on Abraham green Rickett being his son? I have not been able to find anything except what you have on here. Thanks

Abraham Green Ricketts
If you would like to confirm the parents of Abraham, I have a way without cost to either of us. I had a DNA test done on myselt to determine my relationship to Drewry Ricketts. If one of the male descendants of Abraham will take a simple Salvia test, we can see if it matchs. This only works on the male descendants. If interested contact me and I will do the rest. One of our rich relatives has agreed to pay for the DNA test. My - Phone here next 60 days is 727 807 5579 after that 231-690-1254

RE: Father of Abraham
Dear Sir, the James Walter Ricketts you are referring to is very much alive and well...I am his wife....

I was just hoping you could shed some light on the parents of Abraham. I have been searching for about 32 years and looking for his parents and at this time I haven't been able to determine who his parents were. Abraham did spend some time in Mississippi close to Drury but I have not been able to determine his relationship to Drury. I also feel that Drury could have been married before due to his age when he married Judea. I guess I was just hoping that you had ran into something that would confirm his parents.

By the way if you need or have a question pertaining to Ricketts of the United States I currently have a little over 76,000 files pertaining to Ricketts and their allied families.

Regards, James Walter & Ruth Ann Ricketts

Father of Abraham
Hello Bob,

Thank you for your entrys on find a grave. I hope you can help me. How did you determine Abram Green Ricketts is the son of Drury Ricketts and Judah Jones, since he was born before the marriage to Judah Jones. I,ve been trying to find Abramham's parents for more than 30 years. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Was Drury married before Judah?
