I am interested in researching JETT/GARRISON families mainly in Iowa/Tennessee/Kentucky/Oklahoma/Missouri/Arkansas/Texas and Virginia and GORVIN/ORGAN/MURPHY families|
I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TRANSFER ANY MEMORIAL! Just ask
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

|Amanda Jett||Please correct|
You have Robert Jiles Jett and John Bell Jett listed as Talicia's children and they aren't her child they are the children of Martha Vaughn Jett. Thank you

This is my Grandfather. The marker is for his first wife, who died. He is actually buried at "Hendricks Cemetery" beside his second wife, my Grandmother.
|Lisa||Re: Elizabeth "Betsey" Harris Fry|
There are two postings for her, one of which has your wonderful photograph of the tombstone. (#58179424 and #92267279) I was hoping that you could post your photograph to #58179424 that doesn't have the photo so that I can combine without losing information.
I appreciate so much the transfer, but I didn't realize that she was posted there under her tombstone name of Betsey Fry.
Thank you for all your work. Sorry this is so convoluted. Lisa

I found that I had already posted a site, and now have a problem. One has children attached, and the other has your wonderful photo. Could I get you to add the photo to the one with the children? I am asking you to do so much, but I want you to keep the credit for the photo. Thank you for the transfer. I am working on the Fry family with another family connecting children with their parents.

|Connie Lee||RE: Freddy Jett|
I am not sure. My theory is he is the son of Tolbert and Louisa Jett, although I have found no records of him. Here's why I think that:
His gravestone is located among other close family members on the east side of the cemetery - this is where they buried 4 other sons and at least one grandson.
His stone is hand carved in the same style as the "Infant Jett son of JT Jett" gravestone nearby - JT stands for James Tolbert Jett
In the 1990 census, Louisa reports that she has had 9 children of whom 6 are still living. I only know of 8. John and the Infant Jett had died already. Andy, Lillie, Jim, Sephie, Wes and Harv were still alive. So there is one more unaccounted for that would have died by 1900. I think that might be Freddy.

Hello. I have made several "edit suggestions" for you. Thank you!
|Edward E. Gardner||RE: Freddy Jett|
No, I do not know who they are.

Would you please transfer the FindAGrave Entry for the infant, Mary Ann Hughes d. 1863 to me? I believe that this is the niece of Mary Ann Hughes Weekes, who is buried in the Frank Pierce Cemetery. Baby Mary Ann would be the firstborn daughter of Mrs. Weekes brother John Hughes and wife who lived in Sharon Township from 1862-66 before moving west.
Thanks for deciphering this old stone, it's provided another clue to the search for my Irish Famine ancestors.

I just submitted links to parents under "Edit."
Wanted you to know that her California death certificate names her parents.
Many thanks for creating the memorial and providing the photo!
