|I hope what I've contributed to Find A Grave helps others as I was helped and is perceived as respectful and caring, as these were my intentions. I discovered this site because of my love for genealogy but soon realized how much interest I had in cemeteries. I now see what peaceful, sacred places they are, filled with touching tributes and the history of our past generations.|
The Arkansas PBS network (AETN) produced an Emmy-winning documentary in 2010, Silent Storytellers, which beautifully emphasizes the need to preserve our cemeteries as priceless connections to our history. I highly recommend it for my fellow members; you don't have to be a resident of Arkansas to appreciate it. Director/co-producer Hop Litzwire uploaded the documentary onto YouTube, which you can access by clicking here.

|Kay||RE: Polly Cossey|
Thanks for your reply:
"I have many records for Polly (marriage, census, obituary, etc.), but never is the name Mary referenced as her true first name. Her son Oliver's wife's first name was Mary (Mary Letha Burleson Cossey), but every record I have suggests that Polly's full name was Polly Emaline Bridges Cossey (Emaline was also her mother's middle name). She is my great-grandfather's sister -- is she also related to you? I'm certainly willing to entertain the possibility of the change if you have some kind of record that shows Mary as a first name, but for now, I don't have any documentation to do so."
The Bridges and Cosseys are both collateral lines for me, so I am sure your information is more accurate. If she's Polly to you, she'll be Polly to me!

I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Lillie Mae Hogue Alford Mitchell in Mulberry Cemetery (Memorial# 141112391).
I would like to add this gravestone photo to the non-profit Alford American Family Association's collection of Arkansas Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at http://www.alfordassociation.org/OBITS/AROBIT.htm.
May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Permission granted by the photographer, TPE [or your full name if you prefer]
And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

|Jeni Nichols Mitchell||Zion Hill Cemetery, Pope Co., ARK|
Greetings! I am looking for some information about a book mentioned on the memorial for Margaret Rebecca Powell Simpson called "Zion Hill Cemetery Pope County, Arkansas: 125 Years 1885-2010". I have been unable to find this book for sale anywhere and was hoping you might have some additional information on it. Thanks!
