I didn't know Betty personally, but I know her son, Michael, who works for the Memphis Magazine. He works under the pen name "Vance Lauderdale", so you might want to add him as a friend. He posts quite a bit of interesting things. I have added his Mom & Dad, he is on Findagrave, but doesn't want me to transfer them yet (?). Anyway, I will when he asks for them.

I have found that military cemeteries and Jewish cemeteries are the easiest to mass-photograph. Organized and neat, they are.

I see that you took a picture of a man named Joseph Crouch over at West TN Veterans State Cemetery. Thank you. I knew the man well and I worked with him for a time here in Millington (at a convenience store). He was a good guy.

Great photo, good job. I appreciate all your help with this matter.
It is hard to believe that someone would be willing to make a memorial and then have it messed up with that photo.

I am sorry you are upset.
My computer crashed & then 12/2 I had emergency surgery. Dr. said if I had not gotten to hospital when I did I would be dead. They took out appendix and part of both intestines. Came home Thurs. & within 3 hrs. I was back in ambulance to hospital. I lost 30# in 2 wks. Weighed 90# when I left the hospital the 2nd time.
It has been horrible just trying to stay on my feet.
It is one day at a time with the Lord's help.
When I got new computer I had 984 e-mails; so yes I was behind. Most have been taken care of.
Again I am sorry you got upset...God Bless

|Linda Claxton||RE: West TN State Veteran's Cemetery|
It's my pleasure! We have a "grumpy" assistant in our office here too. There seems to be a lot of "jumping" around with national cemeteries these days but I can see why folks want their relatives nearby. As for the statement "if there's a monument here...they're buried here", WELL... Look at my memorial for Asa Morton Find A Grave Memorial# 94935003. He's not buried here. This is a cenotaph for him, which is why I checked to see if the plot at Ft Rosecrans for the Butlers still had a marker. Any time you see "In memory of" at the top of the headstone or marker there are no remains or cremains buried. It's their way of telling us it is a cenotaph. And I have heard of ashes being in two different cemeteries, with two different spouses. We just have to do our homework for these memorials.
I sent you some edits to change the plot numbers via the new system, there should be a tab on your contributor's page, just next to your contributor's tools tab =]
Thank-you very much for the great photos for the other Butlers at West TN!!! I appreciate what you do!

I took the photo you requested and added photos and GPS for spouse Nettie as well. I requested an edit on the death date for Joseph from 1922 to 1972 as per the grave marker.

|Linda Claxton||RE: Catherine Butler|
When Find a Grave uploaded the VA records they were listed at Ft Rosecrans. Now the VA is listing them both at West Tennessee. The plot at Rosecrans is for ashes only and their names would appear on the same stone (if there still is one). Since Catherine is a vet also she is entitled to a plot of her own next to her spouse who is a vet. I sent edits so they can be linked together at West Tennessee. There is a small chance that there might be a cenotaph marker for them at Rosecrans. If not I'll have the two merged into yours. From the photos posted both are interred in West Tennessee. I'll keep you posted.

Hi- I claimed your request at Ft Rosecrans. It looks like she was disinterred and moved to West Tennessee Veterans. I will check to see if there's a cenotaph for her at Rosecrans.

|Chad Daniel||RE: Wow!|
This started with me researching my family and their grave sites. Then, I realized how many photo requests were out there, so as I am traveling around for school or home etc.. I find local cemetaries and get to walking! I love this and being a Southern Studies major at Ole Miss it allows me another way to see history via the cemeteries and their stories!

I have made the additions you requested, however, you should be aware that due to privacy concerns, survivors should never be listed on memorials unless they are from very old obit's. or bio's.

Thank you for updating her memorial.
I'm willing to maintain the memorial if you want to transfer it. She is a relative, but only a 3rd cousin once removed.

|Kathy Curle Ward||The Bookers in New Salem and Wiers Chapel Cemeteries|
I was looking on the Tippah County website and ran across part of an article published in the Southern Sentinel 10/13/1927. I am copying it in this e mail. BOOKER FAMILY (101327) killed Friday were Johnny Booker, age 57; his daughter, Lottie, age 17; Jim Booker, age 25; his wife, age 25; and their 9 month old son / injured was Clayton Nix, son-in-law of Johnny Booker, and J.P. Booker, 13 year old son of Johnny Booker / Johnny Booker was a son of Jim Booker of Palmer / Jim Booker was a cousin from north Tippah / wife of Jim was nee Proctor / John and Lottie were buried at Wiers Chapel, Jim and family at New Salem. I was wondering if there was a fire to kill 5 of these family members on the same day. Unfortunately the article is not the entire article from the paper so some additional information may be found in the paper. Thanks, Kathy
