RE: Emma Pettenger
Hi Ruth,

I didn't see a stone for Lucy; I walked around the entire cemetery. There were a few stones that were in bad shape (unreadable).

RE: Ebeneizer McDowell
Oh, great, then I'll keep Emma attached to Ebenezer's memorial. I see she died at only 22.

RE: Ebeneizer McDowell Pettenger
Hi Ruth. It's my pleasure. I didn't see a stone for Lucy, however, you may notice that I linked another woman's stone *Emma J. Pettenger (1845 - 1868)* with Ebenezer because her stone actually says she was his wife. Whether she was his first wife is something I am not sure about. You may know more than me. Perhaps she was his only wife and Lucy is incorrect. Hope this helps.

RE: Alexander Moore
Thank you for including my bio updates on distant cousin Alexander Moore's entry. On your profile page/ "Edit" tab, you should have some pending update requests from me for some family entry connections. If you can Approve them it would be appreciative. (Can't recall how many I sent your way but at least the links for Alexander to his wife's entry is in there which will happen automatically once you hit approve.) I'm hoping someday I'll find his parents grave spots somewhere around Lesterville and then we'll link Alexander to his parents' entries.
Thank you for your commitment and time towards Find-a-Grave.

Alexander Moore of 1836-1907
I just left you some edit requests for your entry of Alexander Moore of 1836-1907, born in Stokes County, NC, including Bio update please (Copy/Paste if you wish): "Alexander was the son of Creed Taylor Moore and Nancy (nee Kizer/Kiser/Kaiser) Moore. After the Civil War his parents moved to Lesterville in Reynolds County, Missouri. Alexander had an older sister Louisa and a younger sister Jane. With his marriage to Nancy Minerva Johnston in 1870, they had 9 children: Robert, Ida, Ada, Eda, Ammie, Daisy, Monroe, Nancy, and Ethel."
-Thank you for considering this request.
P.S. His uncle's entry {William Moore of 1812-1903) is listed on F-A-G for Reynolds County, MO with a mention of Creed Taylor Moore. It has links to the rest of this Alexander's family.

I don't know what the problem might be except for spam blocking on your account. Martha will not respond to messages that block her, when she tries to respond. I have sent two messages in the past 2 days to her using that email, and they've gone through just fine.

RE: Albert and L Pettenger
I'll send an email and see if it comes back to me. If it does, I will call to find out what is going on. After your note came another, who seemed not to have a problem; but we'll see.

Best Wishes.
