PLEASE DO NOT post picture of grave stone that any of the above methods used for better picture to any memorial we have posted. Thank you!

TRANSFERS: Per FaG guidelines.

For corrections or linking please use EDIT tab - right upper corner on each memorial.

Most all our memorials were made when we walked cemetery and recorded from stone. We prefer to leave names as they were recorded from stone and enter suggested names added to bio section.*** FaG guidelines per names as follows (dies not mention the old custom of wife dying husbands name - will check further; however for time being, names will be left as we recorded from stone.

***Memorial Naming Conventions
If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
A period should be used after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.
No other punctuation should be used within any Name Field.
Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used in any Name Field.
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

First Name
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

Middle Name
Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

Nickname of deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes.

Maiden Name
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and should only be used if the individual was married and took the spouse's last name as their new last name. If the deceased was never married, then the last name should be placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

Martha Curnutt
Thank you for sponsoring Martha's memorial. She was a brave and courageous person

I thought the broadcast went very well and have been eagerly waiting for it to come out. Cynthia Nixon is my cousin and I spent a couple of days with her and her entourage while they were filming in in Jefferson City. I was allowed to sit in on the filming of the segment with Gary Kremer at the Archives. It was fascinating to watch these professionals work.

Exciting times!

RE: Just checking in
Dee, good to hear from you. We no longer work on Find A Grave. It just got to be too much of a hassle. But not before 99.9% of Bosque County has been checked & re-checked & entered into the historical history of the county. Six years & a lot of work.
We have sold our house, down sized, & moved closer to our doctors. I had a heart attack April 2nd & decided it's time to behave ourselves. We know it was the right thing because we are having fun now.
Hope you all are doing well & not working too hard. Do let me hear from you some time.

RE: Francis M Hancock
He does not have a stone. He died at "Hospital No. 19" in Gallatin. According to a Nashville Civil War historian I exchanged emails with, soldiers who died in Gallatin were buried in shallow graves then reinterred in Nashville National Cemetery. However, their original graves in Gallatin were only marked with wooden crosses and such and many of the markers were stolen to be used as firewood or were weathered before the bodies were moved. It is most likely that our Francis Hancock's original marker at Gallatin was deteriorated or destroyed and he was we reinterred in as an "unknown" grave. I did not get to know Malinda as she passed away before I was born. My grandmother is Mary Hancock Brady (her first husband was Ed Hammond, my grandfather). Mammaw Brady knew her though.

RE: Francis M Hancock
That's actually a different Francis M. Hancock. I have come across him before. If you notice on his marker it says "Ind." This Francis was in the 29th Indiana Infantry and died on 4/11/1865. Our Francis Marion Hancock was in the 9th TN Cavalry and died on 6/23/1864.

Julia Alma Loveday: Mem# 41665415
I appreciate the strive for accuracy in all memorials. Please note the 1910 Census that was taken just a month or so before Julia Alma Loveday's death. If you would like, I can send a copy to your email since I can't attach a link to this message. I would appreciate her given name be accurate even though the headstone shows only Alma Loveday.

Robert C Loveday 48 Mary M Loveday 38 Hugh E Loveday 18 Minnie P Loveday 16 Homer D Loveday 12 Katie B Loveday 9 Ray J Loveday 7 Julia A Loveday 3

Source Citations: 1910 United States Federal Census: Civil District 4, Enumeration District 0137 Sevier, Tennessee; page 6 or 26 lines 76-83. Most of the family went by their middle name but the 1910 census lists given first name and middle initial. Thank you for your consideration. Nina

Hattie McMahan (6300794) is not buried in Walnut Grove cemetery, but in the cemetery across the street with her husband. That is the Stafford cemetery. There is a memorial in that cemetery for her. (50521699)

Hi Dee,

Thanks for the duplication notice. I guess it was just brain gas. :-)
