Clara McLeod
Here's what I found:

1. Certificate of Marriage Commonwealth of Virginia found on to Marvin Ailstock shows Clara as a widow and her father's name as SB Sartain and mother as Lillie Frances Sartain. Dame was the surname of her first husband.

2. I then found her in the 1920 and 1930 census as the daughter of Spencer B & Lilly Sartain and S.B. and Lillie F Sartain, respectively.

3. I was not able to find the marriage record of her first marriage

4. The divorce record from Marvin Ailstock lists her as Clara Aartain Ailstock which I believe to be a transcription error from the original document and supports Sartain as her maiden name.

Hope this helps

M A Hatchell, Elim Cemetery
The marker for grave #103622845 for M A Hatchell at Elim Cemetery is for Manley Allen Hatchell, my great grandfather.

RE: Eleanor Campbell
No, as far as know she didn't remarry, and the memorial for her has "daughter of A S and Ellen Todd." I thought she would be buried near Adam and Ellen (those strange looking gravestones). Maybe she doesn't have a marker. Is there a cemetery office you can check with? I appreciate you looking for me. Thank you

RE: Samuel Lafayette Vaughan (1911 - 1993) edit
I have added a copy of his obituary to the memorial as documentation of my suggestions.
Plus, his sister was married to my first cousin.

Adam, Ellen Todd
Those are really different; thank you for taking and posting a picture of them in their entirety. I also requested a photo of their daughter's memorial, Eleanor Campbell 1888-1970 in the same cemetery. If by chance you are out there again, would you mind taking a picture? Thank you very much!

Question about Victoria A Moore and Pvt Fred Moore
Greetings Remember Me;

I have several questions on Victoria A Moore and Pvt. Fred Moore buried in Sumter, South Carolina. I am trying to locate the graves of my Great Aunt Victoria Alma Ward, who married a Fred W. Moore, in West Virginia. First, were these individuals born in West Virginia. Second, are there obituaries for these individuals?

In searching Family Search, your memorial has the dates for a Victoria A Moore, who was born in Louisiana.

The Pvt. Fred W Moore memorial has the birth information for a Fred Moore, born in West Virginia:

The Fred Moore who married Victoria Alma Ward, was drafted in Huntington, Wv and honorably discharge. He had a sibling; Myrtle Mae Moore who married a Thomas Hickman, who is buried in the Lady Dunn Cemetery.

I am of the belief that Great Aunt Victoria Alma Ward and her spouse, Pvt. Fred W. Moore, were buried either in the Handley Cemetery, in Handley, WV or the Lady Dunn Cemetery, also in the Kanawha Valley. Alma had a brother buried in the Handley Cemetery and Fred had a brother buried in the Handley Cemetery. Yet, WV Vital Statistics does not have a death certificate for them, nor his parents. Not wanting to create a duplicate memorial, I am inquiring upon who the Victoria A Moore and Pvt. Fred W. Moore buried in the Evergreen Park Cemetery are.

The memorial for Victoria Alma Ward Moore:

If they are the same Victoria A Moore's could they be merged. If they are separate individual's and married couples; the irony of two Fred and Victoria's with similar dates. I do appreciate your assistance and the work you have contributed to Findagrave as a fellow researcher who documents graves and headstones. Thank you--Jerry M. Weikle
