|Bio and Links|
Though our branches are seperate and far apart,|
my quest for you is from the heart.
For somewhere back in time,
we share the same family line.
The Elusive Ancestor
I went searching for an ancestor, I cannot find him still.
He moved around from place to place and did not leave a will.
He married where a courthouse burned, he mended all his fences.
He avoided any man who came to take the U.S. census.
He always kept his luggage packed, this man who had no fame.
And every 20 years or so, this rascal changed his name.
I'm told he's buried in a plot, with tombstone he was blessed; But the weather took engraving, and some vandals took the rest.
He died before the court clerks decided to keep records.
No family bible has emerged, in spite of all my efforts.
To top it off, this ancestor who caused me many groans, just to give me one more pain, betrothed a girl named JONES!!!

AMEN and HALLELUJAH! :)

Thank you for the link. I think it is important to have as much information as possible. You just never know who is going to find a relative.
Thanks for your help. Judy

I have a bunch of his piano music (sheet music) If it is the same person that is. My mom had his piano music and gave it to me, I have a whole box of it with his signed name on them all. So I googled his name and found this here.

|Cerelle Bolon||RE: Sallie Ann Huffman Wade 112904379|
She did contact me, but I didn't understand from her note just what the problem was and that is why I was trying to make sense of it. Thank you for your clarification..I will move William to the correct spelling of the Cemetery name and she can then be at rest with his wife!
|Cerelle Bolon||Sallie Ann Huffman Wade 112904379|
I am really confused. Sallie was the wife of William Feckledine Wade 88321369 for whom I did a memorial in Stemple Cemetery, which was listed on his death certificate. It seems there are two cemeteries in very close proximity..Stempel and Stemple..or one cemetery spelled both ways..as both of these cemeteries listed on Find a Grave have signs looking to be the same..and spelled Stempel. It seems to me that William would be buried in the same cemetery with Sallie..but I had done his memorial true to the information on his death certificate and am unable to determine if this is one cemetery, or two..can you help??
IF he is buried in Stempel as you have his wife and one of his daughters, I will need to move his memorial..but are we actually talking about the same cemetery???
HELP! I find this hard to clarify from my place in Phoenix, Arizona!
|Carolina Grave Hunter||RE: Irene Brannon|
Yeah! I sent a message to findagrave about the duplicate cemetery, but others have also but hopefully they will fix it somehow. What makes it bad is some of the DC's have the name spelled incorrectly for both Cemetery and surname spelling. My family surname WAGAMAN has many variations, so I understand the difficulty in keeping the records accurate.
My friend Loretta may be going to take photos in the future, but her daughter is due to have a baby any day so I don't know when it will be.
Have a great weekend!
I've been meaning to thank you for the info you provied for Everett Frazier. Thanks very much! I was happy to get it.
