Greetings, and thank you for visiting my profile page. I would like to sincerely thank all of the contributors who provide so much valuable information for the memorials. We all agree the memorials are a work in progress. Find a Grave works so well because of the fantastic, dedicated contributors such as yourself. I receive a LOT of edits and additonal information. I try hard to handle my edits in a timely fashion. Sometimes I am unable to keep up with thanking each and everyone that provides edits and additonal information. For this I am sorry but I sincerely appreciate your hard work and hopefully together we are helping a lot of people with family searches and honoring our departed loved ones.|
May God bless each of you.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

P.S. Please take a moment to visit the memorial for Morgan Thompson . We went to High School together. Morgan had been living in the Boy's Home for a number of years. He haid been talking for a couple of years about joining the Army as soon as he was old enough so he could get out of the Boy's Home. He joined the Army and came by school to show us his uniform. He had a smile from ear to ear! I will never forget how proud he looked in his dress uniform. He had just completed basic training and was on his way to Vietnam. A few short months later we got word that Morgan had been killed in combat. God bless you Morgan. You made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Freedom is not free. Through the sacrifices of many thousands of men and women like Morgan we have freedom. He was only 18! Cherish this freedom and never let it be taken away.

Just want to thank you for the photo of Laura's gravestone. She was a dear friend for many years and I really appreciate getting to see her gravesite.

Hi, Please change the Mother for Garry. I was linking him to his parents and I hit a wrong number. I could not find out how to change it. His Mother is Alice Heald Proper, # 77723470, and Garry is ,#104213256. Thank you so much. Kay
|William R. Cavins||Thank you|
I appreciate the transfer of Eugene and Irene to us.
|C. Granberry||RE: Jacob Calhoun Brown|
Jacob was born in Macon County, Alabama in the town of Cotton Valley. He was born in January and his brother, John Jefferson, died there in September of the same year. Would you add that info for his birthplace to his memorial, please?
Also, I have requested the links be added for his brothers, George Kelley Brown memorial #99017330 and Henry Benjamin Brown memorial #9608713.
That's it for tonight. Have a good night.
|C. Granberry||RE: James Goodwin Brown|
I saw the work you did thanks.
As a matter of coincidence, I have been working on William Washington Brown, he is in fact the son of James Goodwin Brown. I have found all but one of W. W.'s children, Mary J, born about 1855-1856 in South Carolina. She is on the census record when they lived in Union Parish, Louisiana in 1860, but I have not found her burial location yet. Sadly, I may have to leave her incomplete.
Anyway, I have entered the requests for additional info to be added and the links.
Let me know when/if you are ready for the transfers.
|C. Granberry||RE: James Goodwin Brown|
I have not been to Fort Cemetery in Macon County, Alabama nor do I know if the grave is marked. I entered the memorial from an old inventory of the cemetery. I was looking for some of my relatives and came across the records so I thought I would enter all I had been able to locate because the records were difficult to find.
I do believe this is your great-great-grandfather because one of his sons, John Joseph, who died in 1857 is also buried there. I'm doing some more research on the other children and I have located two of them.
I will add his full name and link him to your great-great-grandmother. If you will give me a few days to request the links for the children I have found, I will transfer management of his memorial to you if you like. Just let me know or enter a transfer request.
I am happy to know that someone remembers him and that his descendants are looking for him. After all, that's why we do this, isn't it?
