I think, I have duplicated one your records. I did not realize until I had linked all the family members. If this memorial is not a family member would you consider deleting yours? J C Tipps is my family. Thank you

I had posted William, using his full name, Sorry, I didn't realize, you had posted him with just initials. He is buried at Birdtown Cemetery, if you would add his full name, I think the Lady who wrote me, telling me about the DUP, has written you also. I will deleted my posting, as yours was first.
Have a great day.
