Thank you very much for these Ruffner transfers. Let me know if can ever be of help.

Jim I have a similar request for Joseph Ruffner and will understand whatever you decide on these requests.

I am working on my Ruffner relative line. I have added marker photos that would better allow links and also have family data of interest. If these are not of particular interest or are not a project of yours, would you consider transferring William Henry, Zella, & Clifton Ruffner to my care? Thanks in advance for any help you might offer.

Thanks, I found it on a topographic map and a satellite image.
No, not related to anybody there. Just mapping cemeteries.

No, I'm not, but street names are fine, I can find them on google maps.

Since you took a photo of the Clark-Joiner Cemetery in Laurens County, can you tell me where you found this cemetery?

Sorry, but I cannot remove the photo. You, as manager, should be able to.

|Beth Mimbs Sipper||Ettie Bass Edenfield|
Hello, Jim. I can't tell you how exciting it was for me to find your post of the grave of Etta (Ettie) Bass. I have long tried to find it but was misspelling her first name. I can tell you a little about her personally. My grandmother, Iris Abbott (Nanny) was her daughter. Even though Nanny was only six when Ettie died (of complications of a surgical procedure so I'm told), Nanny always grieved for her mother. Ettie was a beautiful woman and Wright H. Edenfield, her husband, was a very handsome man. I remember Wright H. He would sometimes visit Nanny and my grandfather, "Daddy Bob" Abbott, on the old Abbott homeplace on Mitchell Road in Warrenton, Ga. Old to my eyes by the time I met him, Grandpa Wright H. Edenfield always carried a pocket full of hounds-tooth candy for the kids and he was very kind and funny. He died when I was six years old.
A few years after Ettie died leaving Wright with four small daughters, he married Lettis Mosley. I remember Momma Lettis well. She visited Nanny and the other sisters (Pansy, Diantha, and Aster) often and always came to the Edenfield reunions at Magnolia Springs in Millen. She died when I was 20. She loved Wright's daughters as her own. The couple lived in Collins where Wright was a cabinet in furniture maker. He made the most wonderful things. I have a little wooden box he carved for Ettie when they first married from the limb of a cherry tree to keep her "secret treasures" in. My grandmother gave it to me after it was left to her. She gave my mother the crystal tumblers that were used at Ettie and Wright's wedding and those too came down to me. How I treasure these things… I also have a photograph of Ettie and Wright H. just after they married. They were a beautiful couple. I will scan and post it sometime soon. Again, thank you for posting the picture of the grave. I intend to visit Cadwell very soon. As chance would have it, I recently found another set of great grandparents very near there in Laurens County: Eli and Monica Register, actually the great grandparents of My father's mother, Monica Register Mimbs. What a small world we live in. :-)

This is going to sound very confusing and very silly, but such is my family.
My mother's name is Barbara Louise Lowe Snyder. Mom's mother was Ellen Josephine Trotter Lowe. Ellen's father was Harry J. Trotter.
Harry J. Trotter, my great grandfather's sister was Margaret Trotter McCracken who married Thomas McCracken.
Now for the really confusing part. Harry J. Trotter's first wife was Margaret E. Rose Trotter. After Margaret's death, Harry then married Margaret E. Smith Trotter.
So Harry J. Trotter had a sister Margaret who married into the McCracken family, and two wives named Margaret whose both middle initials just happened to be "E."
If you'd like, I can send you an invite to view my online family tree. If we are indeed related, I'd be happy to invite you to help maintain the family tree. Membership for www.geni.com is free, unless you want the Cadillac version. You can add to the tree, add stories, documents, photos, timelines, etc... I have to warn you though, it is a bit addicting.
I started the tree a few years back and added about 650 people to the tree. A few relatives of mine found the tree and asked if they could help. Within less than a years time, the tree went from having about 650 people to about 22,000 attached. It helps cut down on research time, allowing us to cover more ground in a lot less time. Does this sound like something that you'd be interested in?
Have a great weekend.
I think you are right about the duplicate . I don't know where the name Kate came from . I must have been looking at another line when I entered the memorial. I went back in my photo files and there is not a Kate in the grouping with the three Merrill's in section B. Thank you for the catch.
