RE: Dr Thomas S. Arnold No, I don't. I don't know if the funeral parlor would release the information to non-family members. Sometimes the family will hold the cremains until the spouse passes and do a joint burial. I'm not related but grew up in the same town his father graduated high school (in fact I went to the same school building). Ralph
Robert Charles Deshler Findagrave memorial #76570575 - would it be possible to notify someone to fix the tombstone for Robert? Near the bottom of the stone, they spelled "Soldiers", "Soliders". It's a small thing but important to at least get the spelling on a veterans stone correct. Robert is not my ancestor, but I would try to take care of it if he were. My father is in a Ft Logan National Cemetery, Denver, Colorado, and I am thankful his stone is correct! Thanks!
RE: Twin City Cemetery Bill, I have noticed that find a grave list both cemeteries as #1 & 2. I do not know how they tell the difference between the two. Twin City Cemetery (Whetsell) was founded in 1987 when John Whetsell died. So anyone buried before 1987 would be in the Twin City-Coleman Cemetery. They are right next to each other. Twin City Cemetery used to be Whetsell Cemetery. Do not know when the name changed. If you are a Coleman or Rountree they are all buried in the Coleman Cemetery. Proctor is a Rountree, so all of his family is buried in the Coleman Cemetery. Hope this helps. Notice a lot of errors on these Cemeteries in Find A Grave.
Twin City Cemetery There are to Twin City Cemeteries located in Twin City, Ga. Both are right next to each other. The oldest is Twin City-Coleman Cemetery. Land was donated for a cemetery by my grandfather Jerry T. Coleman. The other cemetery is the Twin City Cemetery. Land was donated by John E. Whetsell. People here call it the Whetsell Cemetery. Proctor Jones is buried in the Twin City-Coleman Cemetery. In the Cemeteries of Emanuel County Georgia pulblish ed by Moses M. Coleman, Jr., the names are listed as Coleman Cemetery (Twin City) and Twin City Cemetery. It is very confusing unless you live here and know the difference. Most of the funeral homes list Twin City Cemetery as burial place instead of Twin City-Coleman Cemetery. Some just list Coleman Cemetery.
RE: Stacy Hi Bill! So sorry to hear of your brother's bout with cancer. It is a nasty, sneaky disease. Mr. Don is my husband and my friend's dad which is the only reason I put it in yesterday. We'll be at the funeral tomorrow to pay our respects.
Yes, I was very lucky and even having my Dad and Grandmama go through colon cancer, it still tried to sneak up on me to take me out! I had a wonderful doctor that I was told by my GI doctor to wait for, which I only had to wait a month to see him, Dr. Sidney Morrison. He is a genius as far as I am concerned. My cancer was located at the turn (nook/corner turn) of my rectum which was why I was told to wait for Dr. Morrison. My GI doctor said that if a little extra time was needed during the surgery so the intestine could be reconnected to the rectum during the surgery, Dr. Morrison would definitely take the time to do it. Dr. Morrison would not take the easy way out giving me a colostomy bag and then having to go back in later and possibly reconnecting it. He was right. My surgery took 3 1/2 hours and when he got into it he only had a little over 1/2 inch to reconnect it. I came out without have a colostomy bag! It took my body time to readjust to the "new plumbing" which was by no means fun since I went right into chemo six weeks after my surgery which brought on all the joys of the side effects while my body was trying to heal also. This year has been the first year that I've really felt like a pretty normal person again. All of it has been worth the alternative!
RE: Christopher Michael Connolly Hello Bill, I received an e-mail message today saying I had a message from a Jean Rousseau but the only message I see on the memorial site is this old one from you. I check under the message option and don't see it. Am I doing it wrong, not sure how to find it. Thank you & I hope this finds you well. Laure A. Vassall
