Re: Ken Z Miller Transfer
Merlene (apologize for misspelling the first time): I completely understand your rationale and I would feel exactly the same. Would you like me to transfer Arlette's memorial to your care? I would like to continue managing Vicky Lynn. I've just started working on Ken's family tree. If I run into a wall, I'd like to check with you later. My home email is For what it's worth I've been a member of APG since 1999 and have been published several times. I have a registered business in Florida, House of Montague.

Kenneth Zane Miller #46536339
Marlene would you be so kind to transfer management of Mr. Miller's memorial to me? I am already managing his wife Arlette #46536333 and their daughter's memorial Vicky Lynn Miller, (she was my first wife). Kenneth and Arlette are still very much alive living in Little Rock. Thanks for this.

Joseph Cussins
Please link Josephus (Joseph) to his daughter Kate C. Cussins Find A Grave #66322222. Note her name is listed as both Kate C and Kate G on her Find A Grave page.
Joseph's brother is Samuel A. Cussins Find A Grave #41759086.

Parents were Thomas Cousins and Mary Allen both of Pennsylvania - they both died in Rich Hill, Muskingum, OH - but I have not found their memorials - at least not yet.

Yes, the last name changed spellings. Thomas was the last in his immediate family to use the Cousins spelling all of his children changed to the new spelling.

Grace Reynolds/Madeline Pugh
Hello Marlene:

I was wondering how you came by the pictures posted for Grace Williamson?? She was my grandmother we called her Big Mama. Madeline was my Aunt. Certainly did not know that Grace was married before Loyd Williamson my Grandfather. That was a schocker. All these years I thought that Madeline was a Williamson. Any help with locating family members still existing would be helpful. Thank you so much!!

Reynolds markers
Hi Merlene,

are you a Reynolds relative? I'm Fronie's great grand daughter, her grand daughter Vaughn Marie is in Texas for a few days, July 2012. We are doing genealogy. You may recognize her name and she's already contacted you, but, I have so many names in my head I can't keep them all straight.

Re: Madeline Pugh
Hi again. I do have her birth and death place listed. The placement under the date (literally) compared to in the bio does not matter as any search engine will find it. I will change that for you though.

You say that you are a first cousin once removed, and I do understand your claim regarding "accuracy," but my thinking is that someone closer to her chose the wording on the name-plate as is (if not her herself), so I would like to tend to their wishes at best. In regards to duplicates, those who are documenting walk the gardens, photograph, and write information down directly from the stones. So, if someone were to come across her literal tombstone again, they will search for "Pugh" or "Madeline Pugh" and not find her -- thus a duplicate will be made. They will probably not see "Alma," and think they were one and the same.

I chose to provide "Alma" as the nickname so that she could be found as either Alma OR Madeline in a search. What I have written in the bio will also allow her to be found as "Maggie." I will change her nickname to reflect "Maggie," however, upon your request. As "Alma" is stated in the profile, she will be found that way too.

I hope you understand. If "Alma" was reflected anywhere on the stone, I would be more than happy to make the corrections as you wish. I had an aunt that was legally named "Arabella," but she is buried under her middle name, as that is what she preferred.

Take care.

Re: Madeline Pugh
Hi! Thanks for the suggestion, but I am going to stick with what is on the stone. Someone chose "Madeline" for the stone; perhaps even her. I am also choosing to leave the name as is due to the possibility of duplication. People are ALWAYS at Restland documenting, so I assume if I change it, in a year, she was be duped. I will note the discrepancy. Thanks!!

RE: The Dawson's
I sent you a "SAC" on John P Dawson, so you would have my email address. Just send me your email address, and I'll get some photos to you!
