I think this is Bari Vincent Kyzer.
He was paralyzer in an automobile accident and passed away years later from a UT Infection. Can you please verify your record? Thank you and best wishes, Linda Lyles

Ricky D.,
We have got to be family. You refer to my grandma Lillie and her sister "Happy" as "Aunt"

And here you maintain my Great Grandmom.

I have added pictures to some of your Bledsoe memorials. I am hoping to find someone in the family who would be willing to take the pictures that I have. They belonged to Denver and Anne Guinn of Akron, Ohio. His stepfather was Gordon Blair Bledsoe.

I am looking for photos of Eva Rodgers Bledsoe. I am helping the Rodgers side and it would be a blessing to put a face to this wonderful lady.

RE: Louise Horton Byrd & James L Byrd
No, I'm not related to them. I think I might have a relative who married one. Mainly, I grew up in Kershaw and knew some to the Byrds.

edits on the Find A Grave site
On your personal findagrave home page there is an edit tab at the top of the page. If you click that tab you can choose to accept or reject any corrections all at one time which makes it easier. This was new to me a couple of months ago. It might be new or I just didn't see it. Unfortunately, when the person making the suggestions uses anyone of the first four categories for the edit, you do not get any email notice that corrections are there other than a number showing up next to the edit on the tab. You just have to know to check it every now and then.
