John David Sykes
This headstone does not list the last name, only Baby John David. His last name should be McCall. My Aunt Florine Sykes who was actually his sister and was childless is buried in this plot also with their parents, Sarah & Moses McCall who are John David's parents. A logical mistake. I know his last name is McCall by the death certificate which I have a copy.
I have John David McCall already on findagrave Memorial # 107242130. So please do what ever is required to remove your memorial as it is now showing up on
Ancestry.comm. It shows my Aunt with a child and I knew that couldn't be.
Thanks for all of the graves you have listed. I am impressed.

Corrected mother of Fonzy Ivy
I'm not sure who had entered Fonzy Ivy's mother as Mary Louise (Shafer) Ivy, but I just corrected his mother on his Memorial in Bethlehem Cemetery, Whitney, Hill County, TX using the "Edit Button" on Find a Grave. I want to give you a bit more information in case someone challenges this correction.

Fonzy's mother was Matilda "Tillie" (Roberts) who married Alexander Ivy Dec 20, 1891 in Hill County. Fonzy was born 1894. They divorced and each remarried.

Tillie married James Ward in 1897 and he died in 1901 and she married Jim Burgamy.

Alexander Ivy married Mary L. Shafer March 24, 1897.

Fonzy was a half-brother to my husband's father, Homer Ward and Alexander was an uncle to my husband's mother, Lena (Ivy) Ward.

For confirmation see Fonzy Ivy's death certificate which lists "maiden name of mother: Tillie Roberts".

Photo request
You have a photo request at Holy Cross Cem. in Detroit. Their records show a burial in Sec H, Lot 72 for a baby William Gilboe with 07-26-1915 as the date of death. Also, there is no marker. I suggest you delete your photo request.

Yates Cemetery
Hello Cathy,
I am creating a Memorial on Find a Grave for ALEXANDER H HAWKINS at Yates Cemetery in Hill County after seeing that's where he is buried according to his death certificate. He died at Aquilla. Is that near the location of the cemetery? Since your photograph of the cemetery is the one used on the website, I was hoping you could add a little more information about its location.

ALEXANDER H. HAWKINS was married, but his spouse's name is not given, although it did given his mother's name as Mary E. Grey. The informant on the death certificate was A. L. Hawkins, Aquilla. had his name transcribed as Celexas Der H Hawken (?) but it was legible enough for me to read. I had been given his exact death date or I would never have located it in my search. His daughter married my husband's cousin 1x removed, so not a close relative but I hope one of his closer descendants is able to locate his burial place and perhaps add even more information.

Thanks for your help in this and for all the other Memorials you have created.
