Thank you for the work you have done. J. H. Holmes was my grand father. I am the son of Faye Holmes. I had no information on my grand father and had never been able to find the graves of his relatives. thanks again.

The answer is no to the headstone. Don't remember where I found the information, I will look more.

RE: Duncan Adkison #70765212
I have found out that anything is possible. There are many Adkison's in my tree also. When I find one I list. The person who transfered John E. Adkinson to you, "JH" is a cousin of mine but he passed a few years ago. His wife is trying to keep it going. We are related to the Adkison, but very distant. I don't remember where I got the information. I thank the stone may have been requsted from Texas by family, but was sent to Alabama. I will keep looking to find a answer, but don't have a answer now.

RE: Nathaniel Harris #14813499
Hi Meredith,

I absolutely understand your being shocked about the Nathaniel Harris transfer, and I apologize. I'm a bit embarrassed by what happened (which was a little surreal). Here's a nutshell version.

1. You wrote to me about the transfer.

2. I explained that I was also a descendant, etc etc. (My standard answer.)

3. You messaged me again right afterwards with some info for the memorial. (Wait...)

4. I thought to myself, "She can get that page fleshed out faster than I will, and we're both Nathaniel descendants as well as genealogists, so it probably is best to transfer it after all." (I didn't want to be an ancestor hoarder.)

5. I transferred it to you. (Wait...)

6. At some point later I noticed that, NO, I had transferred it the OTHER has-three-names-first-one-stating-with-M Nathaniel Harris descendant who had sent a message through FindaGrave right on top of yours.

7. "ACK!"

8. I felt incredulous and sheepish, but I was also relieved that at least I had transferred it to another cousin of ours who is as dedicated to Nathaniel as we are. Being a bit mired in other things (I had a back injury around that time), I decided to just leave it at that.

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding as well as for not letting you know about my error. My intentions were in the right place, and it ended well, but that's cold comfort when it looks like people are playing politics or favourites or somesuch. Believe me - I'm way too busy to be that silly! :)

So again, I'm truly sorry.

(And now, not to change the subject but while I'm writing here anyway, if you have taken an autosomal DNA test, my mother's GEDmatch ID is M343009. Please let me know yours if you've tested so we can look for and label some Nathaniel Harris segments!)

Elizabeth Priscilla Trawick Jones
Dear Meredith, many thanks for the suggestion to link Elizabeth Trawick to her father, George Washington Trawick (33rd ALABAMA, CSA). She was my grandmother's mother so we're distantly related.

Charles Perry Bruce is my 3rd great grandfather. I was wondering if you had any additional information about him and why he is buried in the Harrisburg Cemetery.

Eliza Payne Trawick Payne
Thanks for the info. I had seen her name listed as Eliza on the 1860, 1870, and 1880 censuses.

I noticed the note for Eliza that you might think her name was really Elizabeth. I have several relatives with the name Eliza and is not the same as Elizabeth.
