I looked up the death certificate and understand what you are saying. Perhaps you would like to rewrite the bio. Just edit what is in findagrave and resend it. I am afraid I will just make things worse if I try to fix it.

Hi Barbara,

I appreciate your edits, but have just been mired down in things other than Find A Grave lately. Plan to catch up soon on adding the additional information you've been sending.

Thank you for the information on Annie Estelle Poe Moore Gilliam. Are you related to her. Her mother. Martha Jane Shaw Poe was a sister to my wife's great-grandfather, Charles Wilder Shaw.

Thank you for the kind words. The Castleberry Clan are relatives of my deceased sister-in-law. Genealogy research is addictive and like solving a puzzle at times. Wishing you great success with your research. Find A Grave members are nice friends and we all like helping fellow members.

RE: Frances Jane Houston Cornelius Smith
Barbara, You are most welcome. I am so sorry about not responding before now. I visit Find a Grave almost everyday but I never log in. Consequently I have messages all the way back to 2011 that I didn't know I had. I found them all today by accident and I wasn't loged in then either.

RE: Thomas Burton
Thank you for your suggestions. I changed the cemetery and deleted the incorrect mother. Also, I am sure I did not make the original memorial because I generally only make them when I have a photo of the grave and in Thomas' case, I did not have one. I have noticed in the past that when the Find A Grave website is running very slowly, sometimes photos get placed incorrectly. My guess is that someone else made the original memorial and I got credit. Thanks again!

Do you know if they were kin to the Williamsons, Craigs or greens or why they are buried there?

RE: Ellis LaVoyd Taylor
Barbara, thanks so much for your help!! The funeral home confirmed his remains will be buried this year during the Tabernacle Kinfolks Camp Meeting in July, and a marker will be placed. The rep told me she would let me know when the marker was placed so I could go and photograph it. Your help with family connections is much appreciated!! Jane

Ellis LaVoyd Taylor
Hi, Barbara.

Ellis LaVoyd Taylor has died. He is being cremated, and the family is having a memorial service out at Tabernacle Church.

His parents are George and Ins (Ina??) Dell Sanderson Taylor.

Ellis grew up in Memphis.

I have posted a Findagrave memorial page in the Tabernacle cemetery until I can find his parents, after which I will change his status to cremated and connect him to his parents.

Do you have any idea who Ellis is and where his parents are buried?

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

I updated the memorial. I added that he married in Roane County. If that is not correct let me know.

Thanks for the update. Louise

RE: John Sevier Compton
Hi Barbara - there's a book called The Heritage of Morgan County Alabama that has information about the Comptons. It says that John S. Compton was in the 28th Alabama Infantry. That book can be found on Worldcat. I've pulled his records from Fold3 and they say he was a private and a teamster in Co. F of the Ala. 28th. The history of the 28th has Co. F in the Battle of Ezra Church, then outside of Atlanta, on the date given for John S.'s death. According to reports, 4 men of the 28th were killed at that battle. I haven't been able find where the names of the 4 men were listed, but I haven't done anything other than a cursory look. In any event, I believe this information about John S. Compton, my ggg grandfather, to be correct. In any event, you may want to look at this possibility.
