RE: Mem. #104660424
Have it your way. It was the first time I had ever seen a ss# listed and I just thought it was odd. I don't really care so leave it.

Talbatton City Cemetery
I did not mean it to sound critical at all- I saw the Talbot Co Ref. just letting you know I took the word of others too, and sometimes found out later it was wrong. Find a grave started out as Just a grave register, and later became a genealogy thing that folks get really upset and serious over. They expect too much of folks just sharing what they have. All of it is just a place to START.

I have a few folks there too. My cousin Mike Hooks Martin Patton, my Uncle Leonard Pridgeon etc.(The one in Columbus)

Recorded 7 Jun 1837 - C.D. Crittenden,

There were at least two Richard's there, and this could be either one- Father & Son Joined the Civil War. Father died 3 Nov 1862 Va-CSA born abt 1815. I have not searched out his son.

Gerry Hill-also a contributor to findagrave, and I do not research all of my graves either- just trying to correct an error I know about.

RE: Mem. #87214996
John, I appreciate your comments. However, for this particular memorial, it is mentioned that she was Baptist. Unlike many Christians, I try to make my personal actions more about Christ's commandment to love, than about "recruitment". My memorials are meant to honor the dead and comfort the living. Although I am sure I have made mistakes, I want my words to be relevant,so I look for clues of the person's faith.

I appreciate all of your work on Find A Grave, and love running across your memorials.

RE: Mem. #139166943 Minnie (HARRS) TYNER
The name HARRS is probably correct after all: I checked all HARRS entries on Findagrave with a gravestone and that spelling is also on the stones. So it is -contrary to expectation- an existing name.
In the cases that the stone did have HARRIS, I corrected the name.
Is there a gravestone for her and/or her parents?
Thank you.

Are you kin to Mariano Morales through his wife, Ruby, if so, how? She is my 1st cousin once removed and do not have you in my data base.
