Hello, Nancy,

It would seem that these two memorials are for the same person. Records are little help as to the correct spelling of the surname Salling/Sallings. Since the grave marker spells it without a final "S", I have used that spelling in my family tree. I would suggest deleting one of the memorials and adding a note about the variant spellings.

I want to thank you for your efforts at recording our ancestors. I am not interested in causing a problem, I am just reacting to another Find A Grave contributor telling me that I added photos to the wrong memorial.

Mintie vs Minnie
Mintie Vandiver Roberts 115719078. I don't believe this is the same as the other. Different dates, and it looks like Mintie married Roberts. Minnie married Clark and Asa Vandiver. Thanks, Theron

I should say, I only have census reports through Eli Graves,(514) son of Henry (511) The other two ancestors are calculated via Find A Grave. I have notes for John only.Names seem to repeat and it can be quite confusing. So I am personally stuck at Eli and Henry basically until I can find census for Eli's parents.

Thank you
Thank you for your message. Genealogy is very interesting.I spent my whole life thinking my ancestors came from Europe, come to find out many Graves of John are actually German. How interesting! I am at a standstill at Henry Graves. I'll pick it up again this summer when I will also have time to look at your Graves family findings.

Best regards

Hi my friend
It was so good to hear from you. I haven't been on line much either. I'm hoping a lot of my problems will go away, as soon as it warms up a bit. On cold windy day's Roxies Granny don't get around too good. I hope you like your new home, and don't have any problems moving. That sure is a Job, if I remember correctly. Stay well and I'll visit my little friends soon. Love Barbara

Tombstone Inscription
Nancy, you helped someone with a verse on the tombstone for Mahala Martin Bowling. I have been working on the verse of another marker which is exactly the same except for one word. The verse is:
Her life was like a half-blown rose
Closed ere the shades of evening
Her death the dawn, the blushing hour
That opes the gates to heavens.

On my stone the last word in the second line only says even. Have you ever seen this poem written like that? I will post a photo of the verse on the memorial for Lucy A. Proffitt, buried in WV. Comments would be appreciated.
