RE: 84192845
One more little note: many times the grave plots are prepaid and husbands and wives end up separated because of this. The Slaytons may have prepaid for her at Riverdale, but not for her HAMER husband. If you SEARCHED on Slayton at Riverdale, this is obviously a major burial site for them.

Most of these at Riverdale are descendants of the same Littleberry Slaton by son Thomas, who was bro to Susan V's father George "Bose" Slayton. Others of them are found in New Smyrna, Cobb Co, GA, where it is suspected that "Bose" is bur, but no confirmation with a stone so far.
Another bro Richard is bur Clowers, Harris co GA.

Regrettably, the results that were transferred to the FTDNA Project site are not appearing, because the technical service at FTDNA is virtually non-functional, please keep the link, this should be resolved soon, I hope.

RE: 84192845
Since both yards are in Columbus, I can only answer that Riverdale is absolutely infested with Slaytons, and Parkhill has only a few. My take on this is that the memorial marker is just that, and that she is physically buried in Riverdale.
My connection to this family is deep, the ancestor of all of this line, George, is almost certainly the brother of my ancestor John. Both men and another prob bro Major were in 1772 Surry co (now Stokes co) NC. Desc's of all three lines match for YDNA. You can see that here:
http://www.familytreedna.com/public/SSSFP_YDNA
A descendant of this line, George R Slayton of Marietta, who descends from the same ancestor as Susan V Hamer, Littleberry Slaton, has 99% match with my YDNA.
You can see my research at:
http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=sssfp_ncsc&id=I5328
Unfortunately, the surname could not be standardized with the lack of literacy and clerical decisions that were made, so most of our ancestors appear as SLATTON more often before 1800 or so.

John, Mildred is my great aunt. She is the sister of my grandfather, Arthur Shannon Nash Jr. I am a contributor on Find A Grave 48451949 and I'm trying to gather my family together on Find A Grave and was wondering if Aunt Mildred is not directly related to you, would you be so kind as to transfer her memorial to me?

Thank you

RE: McDOWELL
Wanted to let you know we received your notes. Love the picture of Tempe and the boys.

Most of what we have agrees with your information. However, not all. So we will be writing you later to compare notes.
