Bob, first of all let me thank you for all your hard work serving others through Find A Grave.
I REALLY appreciate it. I can no longer visit cemeteries in person because of age and health and it means so much to me that people like you are willing to do what you do.
I hope you won't mind my using copies of your photos, etc on my family files on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker. I am trying so hard to leave as much as I can for my descendants and others to know their heritage.
I do want to make you aware of an error on the memorial for Mary Jane #64069015 (wife of General Preston Lyda #64038112)She has the same name as his mother #64036756 who married Isaac Monroe Lyda # 64036653. It is most confusing. If you notice they have the marker pictured on the wife of General Preston the same as his mother's. Note that the marker has mother and father on it. Perhaps Gen. Preston's wife did not have a marker??? I knew you would want to correct this.
I appreciate that you are so willing to do this. All of the other info as far as I know is correct.
Thank you so much and God bless you in your endeavor to serve others in this way.

Bob, I have seen the photo of his signature which you added to his memorial page. It is so amazing! I am interested to know which county and state this is located. Though you noted the immediate place, very precise, I need a broader base before moving to the precise since I am not acquainted with the area described...Thank you!

Black Family headstones
I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful headstone photos of my Black Family relatives. There are so many... are you a member of the Black Family? This is my Mother's line.

I haven't had to fix one of them! Thanks again!!!
