B, you need to remove her pic and then re-enter it as a photo. You show it as a marker and she does not have a marker, as of yet. D

I had not noticed that you wanted documentation. Her marriage record and census records are in my tree. On Ancestry, I am jerryedwards2, and my tree is Trails West. Enter person Levi trice. Jerry.

Mt. Pleasant Church, Oglethorpe County GA
I see that you posted a photo of the cover of a Centennial book about Mt. Pleasant Church, Oglethorpe County, GA. Do you own that book? If so, is it possible for you to photocopy for me the various pages that mention my great grandfather, Rev. Thomas Alonzo Harris?
