|carol phillips mciver||William Hugh Phillips|
Wow - this is my greatgrandfather. My daughter and I are spending her Spring break traveling from S. California to visit family sites in LA. Thanks for doing this!
a couple of suggestions? 1) Please change his name from William to Willie. Here's what his currently living namesake has to say on the subject:
Is Willie really William? Says Will Hugh Phillips III (WHPIII) “ I have never seen a name in any letters, etc that referred to him other than Willie Hugh Phillips. Don't know how my Dad ended up with just Will but it happened. So he is Will Hugh Phillips, Jr.
I am Will Hugh Phillips, III and my son is Will Hugh Phillips, IV. Never, never William, please!! Will is a really good southern name.
2) I love that you give the name of his parents. Please change the spelling of his mother to Keziah. It's a family name also.

I understand, but the other one has the photos associated with it. I did not take the photos. I am just trying to clean up the site.

I really appreciate the time and effort spent in getting these great photos of Mr. Fournoy's grave. Thanks to you his memorial is now complete. Have a great day.
|J. Rubio||RE: James Hatcher photo|
Thank you I will definitely do that. I wrote an article on my blog about the entire story and tried my best to clear up common misconceptions on the story if you would like to read it. I also plan to add Octavia and James' story to my upcoming book about various stories in history.--

|J. Rubio||Jacob Hatcher|
I am writing about the true story of Octavia Hatcher and I found a discrepancy in the memorial for little Jacob. The statue of the baby is on his grave and has always been there. It was never attached to Octavia's grave. In fact, the 1892 Daily Review in Decatur, Illinois (Sept 28) issue mentions the monument having come from there, being specifically designed in Octavia's likeness from a photograph of her. Her right hand (the hand that is now broken off) held a parasol and had an immense ring on it.--- Just thought you would like to know so you can fix the information on the memorial. Thanks.

|Alicia Myers||F. J. Moess / Mace|
Moess, F J 81763270 Frederick (several spellings) Jonathan
His name in German was probably M, o with the two dots over the o, and ∫∫ which could be ss or bb or ff
He was my great grandfather. MACE is what he used in the Civil War so that his name would be pronounced correctly.
His first wife was Moess, Mary B 13404196 she was a widow and had a son by her first husband; F.J. and she had a son Louis (her marker reads MAESS) My great grandmother was his 2nd wife: Moess, Mary Louisa Fuller 81762916 Their children were Charlie Moess, M. Margareth Moess, LaDora Glass Moess Camp, and Treebie C. Moess. The Camp family (Dora and Robert, my mom, her sister and their husbands) have markers in the new section of Minden City Cemetery; All the others are in the old section of the cemetery. Alicia
|Robert Braselton||RE: Byland/Ryland|
Great that we got that straight. Don't forget to change the Ryland back to Byland.
