Funk & Patton Families
Hello Ray, I was just wondering about your wife's family. How is she related to the Funk & Patton families? My great Aunt Bell Hill married William Edd Funk and my great aunt Martha Emaline Bartlett married James Kenny Patton. Just wondering if we might be kin?

RE: Georgia Ann Underwood
Hello Ray,

I posted Georgia's memorial last year after coming across her obit in the Roanoke Times. Shortly after that, you contacted me with her birth date and additional info to put in the Biography.

This particular Underwood family, does not seem to be closely related to my daughter-in-law. Her maiden last name is Underwood. I keep an eye out for all Underwood's while I am doing research for her.

I can transfer the memorial to your family or Georgia's daughter at any time for you to maintain.

The birthdates as I mentioned was in the information you emailed to me and might have been meant as research info in case I found that my daughter-in-law was related somehow. If I found the connection, you offered to assist me in additional info but from my research, I wasn't able to connect your Underwood's to my daughter-in-law's Underwoods.

Hope that made more sense.

Please contact me about who to transfer the memorial to for maintenance and that way, any additional information can be added by your family.

Connie East

RE: Georgia Ann Underwood
Hello Ray,

The original message you sent me with all of the information concerning Georgia included the survivors. You provided their birthdates (those of the living relatives). In the biography on Georgia's memorial, I added the survivors names but preferred not to put their birthdates for public viewing.

Hope that explains the message a little more.

Best wishes,

I have updated birthdate and added Surving family names to biography but if you don't mind, I prefer not to add birthdates for those still living.

My daughter-in-laws maiden name is Underwood and I try researching her ancestors when I can.

Happy Thanksgiving,
