Wrong place for some burials Hi Do you know you have burials in Dailly churchyard when in fact the burials are in Dailly Cemetery. You should correct these burials as they are misleading to people. Dailly Cemetery is on the site.
Margaret Caroline Adams In searching for documented proof of my gggrandmother, Caroline Adams, I found today on rootsweb.com that you show a first cousin four times removed named Margaret Caroline Adams. Can you confirm that she was married to Drury Howell Partin? I'm so hoping that the proverbial "brick wall" is coming down. Thank you, David Partin
Since your middle name is Adams, wondered if you are descended from Geo. Washington and Lucy Adams. Their headstone is one that you added to FindAGrave. My husband and I have been researching the family of Lucy Adams' sister Sarah (Mitchell) Latimer. She married Henry Gould Latimer in the mid-1800s, lived in Darke Co., OH, for a few years, then they moved to Plainfield, NJ, for the remainder of their years.
Before I go on and on, will you confirm whether or not you are related to this Adams family? Thanks!
RE: Ezell / Tarkington Photo My father and I were out at Flat Creek yesterday making pictures of their graves. We are descendants of Balaam Ezell and Keziah Tarkington. If you have any information you can share on them I'm sure my father would love to have it.
What a great record that headstone is, with all of the children's names and dates inscribed on the side! The pioneer section of this cemetery is very old; there are at least a couple dozen markers original to that time that are so badly weathered and/or damaged as to be unreadable now. I think it's marvelous that someone placed a much more recent (and detailed) marker for Jonas Nichols at some point, so as to preserve all that information.
RE: Purvis photos You are very welcome! I have a Polly Rummer Purvis in my tree. She was a sister to my Great,great grandmother Lydia Rummer Ballard. Lots and Lots of Purvis's in my neck of the woods!!! Karen
