No transfer needed, but thanks for the offer. I was going through some files I saved on Franklin County Hodges obituaries and found hers. Thanks again, Thom

Eula O. Clark (1906-1977)
You have very graciously posted a photo of the gravestone of Eula O. Clark from the Barnhardt Baptist Church Cemetery in Goodview, Bedford County, Virginia. You have added that the O. stands for Overstreet. Do you have any further information about this woman? How did you learn the O. was for Overstreet?
Thank you for all you've done.
Judy Clark Felt (much family from Bedford County, great-grandmother was an Overstreet)

Can you put your photo for Elizabeth Lemon on her other memorial Find A Grave Memorial# 52292792. I think cemeteries were merged and the other memorial is older. I've got to delete mine Find A Grave Memorial# 85160528. Thanks.

Gary Gardner #105148721
Hi Bonnie,

Thanks for calling the duplicate records (even though they are in different cemeteries) to my attention.

Cemetery records confirm Gary is in Oakwood Cemetery, Section G, Block 13, Lot B, Space 2ND SE.

Gary's Greenwood record should be moved to Oakwood and my record should be deleted. Unfortunately, the F/G account of the submitter of the original record, Rand Shepherd, has been closed. I have contacted the admins regarding his account and I'm waiting for an answer.

Randy submitted thousands of records to F/G with a lot of valuable geneaological information that needs to be maintained and linked to other family F/G records...

Thanks for your suggestions and your work at F/G

You have kindly added a photograph of my Aunt Mamie's tombstone. However, her first name is misspelled. You list it as "Mable", while if you look at the spelling on the stone itself, it is correctly spelled there "Mabel".

Bonnie, Thank you for your keen eye. I really do appreciate it. I have seen his name spelled both ways but did not notice that the marker spelled it ERNEST. I changed it. Again, thanks, Flo.
