RE: Peter/David Kavanaugh St. Louis
Yes Linda, I am researching Daniel Kavanaugh's line buried in Greenwood Cemetery, MS. Daniel lived in St. Louis prior to the Civil War. 2 of his sons John & James as well as his wife Mary Murphy. James Cavanaugh applied for citizenship in Edwardsville, Madison County IL (across the river from St. Louis) in 1859, stating he had been in Madison County for 5 years & he was 25. his citizenship was granted in 1868 so he may or may not have stayed in St. Louis. They are documented as being here as a family but something happened during or after 1870 to make them head back to Mississippi. I believe my Great Grandfather Peter Cavanaugh is related to Daniel (& the 6 brothers). I am in contact with the genealogy society for Wexford County so they r looking into it. they have told me he LIKELY was with them all, so i believe not all members of the family have been documented. Just those 6 boys. i also believe there HAD to be female children nobody found or listed. Namely Catherine Kavanaugh Murphy wife of Oliver & mother of James Kaveny Murphy d. St. Louis 1968. that name is in the little oral history we know. a girl child named her son our last name, Kaveny (was changed from Cavanaugh around 1900). Ty for your help Linda.

Photos of memorials
May I have your permission to add the photos of the memorials you took of my family members in Greenwood Cemetery to my family tree? (Green and related family) I always give credit to the photographer. Thank you. Thank you for taking the photo of my GGGG grandmother's tombstone, Louisa Green. I did not know her burial location when I first started searching, and now I am glad to have a picture of the tombstone.

Biles in Pocahontas Cemetery Hinds Co., MS
Lucille Evaline "Eva" Dewees Biles was NOT LUCILlE but LUCIE--she'd die again if she thought she was given the name Lucille.

Scott photo

Linda, I would like to request permission to use your tombstone photo for Edward M Scott, who is my 2nd great grandfather, in my family tree. His Find A Grave memorial number is 142560790. I had been searching for quite a while to find him. I knew he was buried with his wife, I just didn't realize that he somehow had not had a memorial made for him. I made the memorial today and the photo was immediately added. Thank you for all that you and the other volunteers do to make it possible for others to find the final resting place of their ancestors. Thank you for this consideration, Karen

Hi Linda,
In Dec. 2013 you were kind enough to help me with my Spragins relatives buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Jackson, Hinds, Mississippi. If you don't mind, I would like to have them transffered to me for maintenance. They are:
Mrs. E. M. Spragins #122108478
George McDuffie Spragins # 120575709

I'm still digging for the rest of the family and am thrilled that I have 2 more located.

Thank you for your wonderful work with Find A Grave.

Hi Linda,
I have located information on J C Julienne buried at Greenwood Cemetery. He was born in South Carolina, 1826 and died in Birmingham AL in 1910. He enlisted in the Civil War as Pvt Co. C, 17th MS Inf. on June 1, 1861 and was discharged Sept 1, 1862. There is a Certificate of Membership bearing his name for the Robert A. Smith Camp, No. 24, United Confederate Veterans, dated May 17, 1901 for dues in 1900.
