Herbert & Arthur Rogers
I agree with you on the headstones for Herbert and Arthur Rogers. I see where you are coming from. So I made the changes to my memorials,so if you want to delete yours.
I just happen to be passing through that neck of the woods and stopped to take pictures of the cemetery. I appreciate your efforts in correcting my errors. Those old headstones can be really hard to read.
Thanks again,

photos policy
What is your policy on others using your photos? I am a descendant of the Choat line and would like to add the photos to my tree. Do you give others your permission?

Ruth Boone Sisk
Thanks for calling my attention to the memorial of Ruth Boone Sisk #156166781 who was the mother of Alderson William Sisk. He is buried in Agee Cemetery in Texas Co., MO.

I have been to the Agee Cemetery, it is in a remote area.

Donald & Avis Petersen
For my Aunt Avis I have copies of a memorial obituary, and the obituary that was printed on the back of the church service pamphlet, Bethany Lutheran Church in Kimballton. The memorial obit. was published "in the pages of Council Bluffs Nonpareil, Council Bluffs, Iowa on Feb 24, 1989. Maybe you can find these and add them; otherwise we will try to figure out how to.

Her sister, Velma Hines Jensen was my mother.

RE: Harold Hallock Curry
Thank you Julie, for your information and thoughts about this duplicate burial information. We appreciate the extra work that you and Steve Harrison have done to check on why there may be 2 possible burial sites recorded for the infant Harold Curry. Your supposition that the grave may have been moved to his mother's in Atlantic may be correct, or else the papers recorded it wrong.
We'll appreciate learning anything more you might happen to find, but please don't go to great efforts since we were mostly curious about this apparent discrepancy in burial sites. We will be back to Exira & Atlantic & Elk Horn next week and also around New Years, and so may try to take a look ourselves at the sites and any local church and cemetery records then. Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the information. I have added it to his memorial.

I used to stop at that park before the cattle lot became its neighbor. So sad to see that nice little roadside park ruined. Geo

RE: Wm Ely
Thank you, Julie -

You are right: it does add a nice touch. The memorial is wonderful and has lots of good information. Thank you for the credit. Most people do not know how to find the pension applications (, just as many people do not realize the contribution their ancestor made to American history.

There has been so much misinformation published online notably, Trish Carden's inaccurate roster of BKM participants. Her roster included my ancestors: I knew several she included did not fight at BKM. I am from Spartanburg, SC, in the shadow of King's Mountain: my childhood home was 30 miles from the King's Mountain battleground and 15 miles from the Cowpens battleground, so I well know those ancestors of mine who fought in each battle.

Because I saw the errors regarding my ancestors, I looked more closely at Carden's roster and realized immediately, that something was very wrong. She boasted that she had over 2000 names of BKM participants, and well she may, but half would have to have been Tories: there were approximately 2,000 total participants which included Patriots and Tories.

Carden was well meaning with her roster: she based her information on that supplied by descendants rather than conducting the in-depth research necessitated: there is a cachet in declaring that one's ancestor fought at BKM. Carden included her own ancestors who did not: nor were they at Watauga. Her inaccurate roster has caused so many problems that it will take decades to undo the damage.

I wanted to clarify the misinformation regarding my ancestors. Once I established those who did and those who did not participate, I realized that Carden's list had to be corrected, so I started. She has removed several Patriots that I have proven did not fight at BKM, but not all. Had I realized the scope of the project, I would never have started. It will take me years to complete.

Many descendants insist that Carden's list is correct, just as everyone gives great credence to Katherine Keogh White and her book, "The King's Mountain Men". It is most unfortunate, because both are rife with error. The descendants send me blistering emails insisting their ancestors fought at BKM. They want to argue with me. I have to remind them that it is not I who expounds that their ancestors did not participate, but the ancestors, themselves, who testified that they did not.

It is especially important that we record in a public forum the service of our Revolutionary War Patriots. To credit a Patriot with participating in battles incorrectly diminishes the service of the Patriot: it is saying that the service he performed was not important enough.

If you are interested in my project, go to Find A Grave Memorial# 133634079 and click on my name in the lower left hand corner. That will give you access to my Virtual Cemetery of BKM participants. These are the Heroes I have proven, but not all who fought. Only recently have B9 and Lenoir's List of his company surfaced, so I have not had the opportunity to include those.

Thanks, again, Julie!

RE: M D LaFayette Grabeel
Thank you Julie,

I contacted Marcia Barr and she has sent me a ton of pictures. She sent a message to a cousin in Arkansas, that she believes has a picture of my grandfather Josephus Graybill Munsey. I'm hoping. She had photos of all of his other siblings.

I found Carna J. Grabeel. Her headstone reads Jewell for her middle name. I made a suggestion for correction of her name, so here's hoping.

I am amazed at the records you are able to uncover. I don't have a paid membership to ancestry.

Glad to see you are back. If I can help you with anything let me know.

Hi Julie, Thank you for the photo and the memorial for my grandmother. Is Josephus in the same cemetary and Mary? Also, the date I had for his death was different than the headstone. 24 Oct 1923 was what I had. If wrong, please let me know. Thank you for your help.

My suggestion would be to make the possible cenotaph memorial a photo request. Short of contacting the cemetery, not sure how to learn if he is not buried at the other location.
I can certainly add more info to the other memorial and I did add a note about the other one. It could have a note added to allow people to check the memorial I created, too.

RE: Harold Hallock Curry
Thanks for the informative reply, Julie. No need to hurry in checking Atlantic Cemetery records, on our account. We just wondered if you, or Steve Harrison, knew the reason for this apparent duplicated burial information. Your explanation seems logical, but we wondered (if your suspicion is correct) if there might actually be a grave marker at Oakfield Cemetery for Harold H Curry - in addition to the one photographed by Steve H at the Atlantic Cemetery. We may actually be back in the Exira & Atlantic area this weekend and next week, and can try to take a quick look as well, if you have not already visited Atlantic and determined the answer. If we are able to get back to Exira this weekend, I will let you know; else, we will look forward to learning about any additional information you may find. Thanks for yours, Steve's, and others' great work and help at Find-a-Grave. Best regards,
M.Jill & Gerry H
