Concering Links, Corrections and Transfer Request:
Please use the "EDIT" on each memorial that way I have the memorial number and the contributor number, it makes it much easier to update, make links or transfer. For a transfer please state your connection to the memorial.

Please DO NOT leave Family Names and Memorial Numbers with a flower or token, PLEASE edit the memorial and I will be more than glad to make the links, Thanks.
Thanks to those contributors who have left flowers or tokens on my memorials. I enjoy seeing and reading them.
Many "THANKS" to Charlotte Bradley Dupree and NativePride for now helping with Find A Grave Memorials.

Joyce, do you have any information naming Robert Hallmark's parents? They are Jessie & Mary Wright Hallmark. I am working on getting a DAR bar for George Hallmark. My only missing link is the connection from Robert to Jessie.

Randy V Jackson
Ozbirn relative
Hi Joyce...Randy Jackson here...I saw you listed with the Ozbirn Family Cemetery...I have been looking without any luck whatsoever for a GGGF on my mother's side...Fountain William Ozbirn...he served with the 1st Ala. Cav. and died after 6Mo. of measles in Corinth, MS. I thought he might have been buried in the Corinth Nat. Cam. but have had no luck finding a "marked" gravesite. I am assuming now that he is in a grave marked: "Unknown" Have you ever heard of him? I believe he is related to Newton buried in the Ozbirn Cem. Thank you in advance for any info or advice you can offer...Randy
