Bio and Links
Bio Photo My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from an inactive member.

Please do NOT post scanned obituaries and news articles as photos to my memorials as they are not allowed per Findagrave rules. I will ask that they be removed if I find them. Send me the typed information (including source) via the edit tab and I will add it in the bio field where the information belongs.

BjJ, Thank you so much for the great picture of Samuel Shreves headstone. I had just received the e-mail from you saying that some of the graves were not marked and was answering that I understand. Anyway, thanks so much for the early present. Hope Santa is good to you.

James Henry Garrison
The James Henry Garrison that you have listed as buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery was, according to his obituary, interred in Hall Cemetery in Athens. SJR, 23 May 1984. This would explain why no death date was inscribed on his stone in Oak Ridge.

Transferred Two Graves To You
Charles Francis and Sarah Ann (Fleming) Barnes from Auburn Cemetery. Saw you Had him at Oak Ridge and you added that one in 2011 so felt they are rightfully yours.

RE: Carrie Foreman Massey #24001303
I had an obituary extract for Lucinda and have sent off various requests for links and addition of data for Lucinda which would confirm her as Carrie's mother. I've edited that extract with information that might help. Material in brackets or parens are my additions:

From the Wayne County Press, 4/16/1953:

Mrs. Albert [Lucinda Byrd] Sarles, 82, died. Born English, Ind. May 22, 1870. She lived here for 20 years. Leaves husband Albert (#107204775), a girl Carrie Massey of Springfield, a son Lynwood Foreman of Hobert, Ind., 2 step-sons Roscoe and Raymond Sarles of Alton. Maple Hill Cemetery. ( #113739723) [First married to Charles L. Foreman (#131749852).]

Does that help? The brother from Carrie's obit matches the son from Lucinda's except for exact spelling. I'm sure I found something else, but at the moment I can't find it, probably a census record. In 1920 Lucinda Foreman, widow is living with "Lenwood" Foreman and Carrie Massey and her husband and child. In 1930 Lucinda has married Albert and is living with him and his son Raymond.
