Lee Annie Townsend 51034327 Hi, It appears there might be a dulicate of Lee Anna (Lannie) Townsend Styers on Find A Grave. Another contributor has posted her as Lannie Townsend Styers with this #67153644, with a headstone pictured. Would you please look into this and let me know? Thank you! Pam Tanner
William Marshall Love Would you please contact me at email@example.com regarding William Marshall Love. I think we have duplicate memorials. My William Marshall love was born and died on the dates as yours; has a marker in Chriesman Cemetery in Burleson Co, TX and was married to Mary Sophronia Atkinson and had several children. Would you like to get this sorted so there are not 2 memorials for the same person. I read what you had transcribed and it's confusing! Thanks!
RE: Isaac William Underwood #70976452 DSmith, thanks so very much. 3 quick questions for you: 1) Is it correct to assume that the "Shimek Cemetery" is the same as the "County Line cemetery" and "buried at the church" phrases that are mentioned in the newspaper accounts? 2) What was the name of the church mentioned, and are you aware of any specific plotting of graves that were recorded? 3) Do you know if anyone has ever "probed" that cemetery for buried tombstones? I have several family cemeteries here and there which I was able to gently probe into the ground with a rounded piece of rebar steel---bent like a walking cane---and uncovered some tombstones that had fallen over and had been buried over time. Best done after a few rainy days when the ground gets soft enough. It can be tricky, but the stone's shape can be tapped to the edges, then the sod can be carefully cut and removed to begin the process. Takes a real zealot for the process---probably not a practical exercise unless there were solid accounts of old stones being neglected, then disappearing under the grass. I would usually spend about one day working on a few rows where there were obvious burials.
Anyway, thanks very much. I really appreciate your hard work. Thanks for the kindness, too. God bless.
Isaac William Underwood #70976452 Hello DSmith! My name is Matt Underwood, and I am wondering if you would consider transferring management---to me---of the memorial of Isaac William Underwood (#70976452).
His nephew Sam Underwood (#116662005) was my great grandfather. Sam and his older brothers Jeff and Robert were fairly close to Isaac and his family. If one of Isaac's closer relatives ever wants management of this memorial in the future, I will happily transfer it to them.
I am working on small, basic biographies of Isaac and his three wives, which links I have also recommended in edits. I also hope to have more biographical data on his parents and siblings and children in the future. I've been doing genealogy since 1978---most of it the old fashioned way.
My Find-A-Grave membership # is 47992157. Thanks for your consideration, and for your hard work. If you have any photo of Isaac's headstone, please feel free to add it.
RE: RE: Yes my husband & son are absolutely DIRECT descendant of Hamilton. Hampton was Hamilton's brother who was about 15 years younger. George H Wade was born abt 1852. Hamilton G A Wade was born abt 1835. Hampton appears as George Wade with Easter, Elizabeth, & Matilda on the 1870 US census, in Polk County, GA.
Esther Wade 60 Elizabeth Wade 32 George Wade 18 Matilda Wade 15 Hamilton G A Wade appears in the 1870 US Census in Chambers County, AL Name Age
H G Wade 33 Mariah L Wade 27 George W Wade 11 John A Wade 8 Hamilton L Wade 5 Dora Wade 3 Mink Wade
In the 1880 US census George shows as a Widower because on 20 Dec 1872 he married Victoria Beam. Victoria died in 1873.
Name Age Easter Wade 69 George Wade 27 Betty Wade 41
While Hamilton G A Wade is STILL in Chambeers County, AL & has married Elizabeth R. Daniel on 11 Jun 1876.
Hamilton GA. Wade 45 E. R. Wade 24 Lora Wade 13 Earnest Wade 3 Joseph Wade 1 N. S. Daniel 18
I can go on & on with the ACTUAL facts proving that you have merged TWO people together to form this memorial. Hamiliton GA Wade & George H Wade were TWO entirely different individuals.
RE: John William Smith I will need more information before I can add John William Smith to the San Jacinto Veterans Virtual Cemetery. The San Jacinto Descendants only recognize individuals that are in the original Honor Roll used at the San Jacinto Monument and Museum. My problem is there were several Smiths but they don't have one on the list as John William Smith. I have tried to research the various Smith's and I find that a John W Smith received a Bexar Bounty for his service in the Texas Army that ended March, 1836, before the Battle of San Jacinto. Any proof you may have will be greatly appreciated.
