Eli Arledge
Rebecca - I tried to send an e-mail, but it was returned as undeliverable.
I am writing in reference to Eli Arledge Find A Grave Memorial Number 8832737. This is my great-great-grandfather. First, thank you for adding the relationship link to his parents.
I also sent a biography to substitute for the one in place at this time. The one that is currently on FindAGrave appears very similar to a short biography that I wrote a few years ago on my tree. I have since discovered while conducting research with Terrell Garren on his book "Measured in Blood" that I was incorrect in relation to battles fought in the Civil War. My ancestor did not join the 25th Regiment in time to participate in the "fiercest battles."
Also, his biography consists of more than time spent in the Civil War.
I sent a biography that I would greatly appreciate you substituting in place of the one currently with his FindAGrave.
Simple FYI: My father, Jack C. Jones, researched and wrote the information on Eli Arledge in the Henderson and Polk counties heritage books. I have continued his research since his death.
Thank you very much for your help.
Here is the substitute biography (also sent via Find A Grave):

Eli Arledge, a son of Jonathan A Arledge and Harriett McCormick Arledge, grew up in the Green River Cove area of what is now Polk County. By the 1850s, he was living in Hendersonville with his brother, Isaac Arledge, who was the sheriff of Henderson County. Eli Arledge served as a deputy sheriff until he entered the Confederate Army.
He married Adeline Pace on Sept. 2, 1863.
He enlisted in the 25th N.C. Infantry Regiment, Co. A, Edney's Greys, on Sept. 3, 1863, the day following his marriage. He was captured April 2, 1865, at Petersburg during the Appomattox Campaign, his second wedding anniversary. He was a prisoner at Point Lookout, Md., and released June 22, 1865.
After the war, the couple lived in Polk County and farmed land rented from his parents. Later, he purchased two tracts of land, part of the Arledge property. By 1880, the family was in Henderson County, living on the Leander Pace property in the Macedonia community. He purchased the 176 acres from Leander Pace, his father-in-law, in 1892.
Two of the children taught in the Henderson County public schools: Lydia at Macedonia and Isabella at Flat Rock.

Link to Parents for Orville E Watson
I have sent a "Relationship Parent Link" Edit to you for Orville E Watson, Findagrave memorial #8395383, to help you link Orville to both his parents. Reverend Orville Ernest Watson never married.
His mother's death date was listed on Findagrave as her birth date and I have sent the contributor the information for the correction.
Joseph Watson, #132175359 was his father and Ellie Mills, #132175678 was his mother (even though her birth date is listed incorrectly at the moment as 1890).
Thank you so much for your work in documenting the graves. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!!

Can someone please correct this error!

Eleanor Hipps Franklin
You have the memorial for my 1st cousin 'Ellie' Eleanor Hipps Franklin # 7547312
but her parents and brother have never been put on her memorial. I guess it's important to me because I'm getting old and have lost almost all my family and we were close.

Would you please link them? I was very close to my dad's family when they were still alive and I would love to see them together on the memorial.

By the way, her nick name was Ellie. She was a wonderful person.

Ellie's family:
Father- Edison Durant "Ed" Hipps # 65350369 *My Uncle*
Mother- Beatrice Eller "Bea" Hipps # 65350381
Brother- Harold Dean "Dean" Hipps # 96696945

Somehow Jessie Willard Henson was linked as her "mother". Jessie is a male and was not born until 1917 so therefore can't be her mother or father. Thanks.
