Memorial# 70566119 for James E Begley
James Emory Begley was a war casualty in the Korean War conflict. There is another memorial in Honolulu, Hawaii - Find A Grave Memorial# 155428809. This gives the actual death date given him by the war records-died 25 Apr 1951. The memorials have the same birth date and it definitely is the same person. The death date on this memorial placed in the Mayes Cemetery, Hawkins, TN must be a date when the plaque was created to honor him-or perhaps when the family was notified of his death.
Perhaps something could be noted on this memorial in Hawkins County, Tennessee linking the two memorials.

Thomas Jefferson and Lela Woods Gordon
May I use the headstone picture of Thomas and Lela on my family tree. She is an ancestor of mine.

Thanks for the correction, hope I put it in the right since two Cook Cemeteries show up.

For Stevvi,

Hi Stevvi. No need to apologize for corrections and additions. We are doing good work.

I moved all five memorials to the Dyer Cemetery in Grainger County and transferred the three that are duplicated to Penny. Hopefully she will move her headstone pictures to the older, more complete memorials and delete her dupes, but it is up to her.

Inquiring about Paul C Hopkins

Mary Ann Read
Thanks for sending the updates for connecting the parents for Sebastian and Thomas Read.

BTW, did you know that the parentage of Mary Ann Read is now in question? The Will of Thomas Cocke (found in Hawkins County) states that Mary Ann's and Margiana's maiden names were Creed, which would indicate that they were not his natural daughters, but his step-daughters by his second wife Lucinda Stubblefield Creed Cocke.

We need more info, which is why I had previously asked Stevvi if there was a marriage record for Mary Ann or Margiana in Grainger County which would prove a maiden name, but she couldn't find any.

Another mystery! Do you have any further info on this topic that might shed more light?
