|Pat ||Walter Bud Kelly|
Walters real name was Fletcher T. H Fletcher-Thaddeus was his biological Fletcher.
Fletcher was a railroad man who lived in Louisville Kentucky in 1900 and died a few years later I only saw him in 1900 census.
My grandmother re married another railroad man in Louisville Kentucky and they moved to St Louis Mo.
Daniel James Kelly adopted my father and his brother and changed their name to Kelly.
D.J. Kelly worked on a passenger train that went to Kansas City and back to St. Louis and he retired from the Missouri Pacific RR here in
How can I find out anything about these two men? I think that they worked for the same railroad in Louisville Kentucky.
I put the only other two pictures that I have on findagrave web site from my Fathers railroad days.
My father's grave is in Memorial Park Cemetery on Lucas and Hunt Rd St. Louis Mo.

|Susan Burks||RE: Christiana Carden|
You are more than welcome.
Marywood Cemetery has many interments without a headstones or markers. There are a lot of concrete headstones and/or footstones with no lettering nor dates; just the stone or rock.
:~( However, I went to the Historian who documented Marywood Cemetery and also, spoke with the Historian at Tyndall Air Force Base and both have the list (which you see on Find A Grave which unfortunately has duplication of the interments names). They do not have a record of precisely who was buried in all the unmarked grave. :~(
The good news is that at one point in time, someone knew where Christiana Carden was buried (exact location) and placed a marker with her name, born, and died dates. There are a total of five located in Marywood Cemetery with the same marker style as like Christiana Carden.
I hope this information helps you. If you should have additional questions, please let me know.
|Judy Young||searchin' for Irish RR hands...|
well I found a few if you are...I was researching ancestry for Alphanes Budlong in Hazelwood Cemetery, Springfield, MO. and I found this census. I could not help but put in the memorial. I thought it may mean a good chuckle among the sad memories for some. Also a way for you to track some long lost RR hands. Enjoy...
As I read the census of 1870 thought would include it here, it made me Irish blood chuckle as I thought drunken brawl and to much celebration. After the names of the family and the servant is the people in jail, the occupation and where they were from. The one that threw me though was the baby in jail...the last one on the list Marion Moore, a black baby, male. F stands for Female, M stands for male, W for white, and B for Black. The child should have been listed after Mama, the servant of the household not after the list of prisoners in the jail.

The other grave is for Catherine "Cookie" Carden 1941 - 1989. If these are of interest to you please let me know and I will send you further information. pat

Do you have any photos of Aunt Mildred? She's my great-aunt by marriage. Her husband, Earl Ward was my mom's mother's brother.
|Sonja Farmer||Hall Family|
Iam the Great-great grand daughter of Elijah Barnie Hall and Rachel Melvina "Dolly" Cole Hall. I would love to know what you have on them and will be glad to share what I know. Berry G Hall was my great grandfather. I noticed that you have Charlene listed as his daughter, however she was not his child. He did have a daughter that died but her name was Mary Emma. She was my grandmother's sister. I don't know where she is buried...I think somewhere around Seminole Ok.
|Coleah||RE: memorial findagrave|
When you see 'Inactive', it usually means the graver has passed away themselves. Or perhaps they just stopped working on Find A Grave memorials. So here is how to get transfers:
Send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject line: Inactive Graver - Please Transfer
Then in the body of the message put your name and member # for them to transfer to. Below that list the name & # of the memorial(s) you'd like transferred.
It may take a while, but you will get an email when the transfers take place.

Wow, have you read this story? Phineas Gage
|Jan Breshears Thomas||RE: Coy Sartain|
Yes, the pictures for the family as well as the grave are encouraged. Let me tell you the difference. It took me a while to figure it out too. When you go to post a picture, there are two fields. The first already has a default value of "grave". But if you are posting a picture of the person, their family, or a document like an obituary or a death certificate, you have options to indicate that. In those cases, click on the arrow next to "grave" and select the one that applies. Then select the item as you do regularly. When the photo is saved, you will get a different icon. Instead of the little headstone emblem, you will get a little portrait emblem or icon. Find A Grave only uses one icon to indicate the other three options. It has been suggested to them that each one get their own icon, but it appears they will not make that change. Now another thought comes. Sometimes when I tell people about this, they don't know what I mean about the icons. If that is the case with you, if you search by last name only, or if you are on this memorial and you click on the button on the left side to list all those with this last name, you will get a listing and these icons will be next to each person based on what is on their memorial. On the right hand side of the screen there is an icon key to explain what each icon means. I hope this helps. There is a lot to learn on this site. I just learned something else last week!! Enjoy. This site is wonderful. Jan PS - one other thing. If you decide you want to change the icon for this picture, the only way to do it is to delete the picture then re-add it, with the appropriate classification. The reason this is important, if people are posting pictures of headstones, and sees the headstone icon, they may pass the memorial, assuming the headstone picture has already been posted. I did that early on, then realized I should check because sometimes my picture is better than the one already posted. I also occasionally find that someone has done what you did, and I am glad I checked. Now I think I am finished. Sorry it took so long. Jan
|Carolyn Armenta Shewmaker||RE: Roy Sullivan|
I have been curious just who you were. I've noticed your JMW on several of the graves of my family members. Roy Sullivan was my uncle by marriage, his wife was my father's sister Rosa. I just got started on Ancestery.com less than a year ago. I've learned a lot , but I have a lot more to learn. I would appreciate any information you might have. My father's name was Alfonso E. Armenta. I didn't know him well. My father and mother were divorced when I was about 2 years old. My mother's name was Irene, she passed away a couple years ago at the age of 101
I did call Howard Sullivan a few days ago, and had a nice visit. He would be my 1st. cousin.
My name is Carolyn Armenta Shewmaker I was born 1943 I have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren. I live in Kansas City MO.
Hope to hear from you soon.
