RE: Noelle Kauffman

TY, we were down there this past week. I was surprised to run across some familiar members names.

I was only suggesting you remove Diana's note that you have her name backwards, as you have since corrected it.

Find A Grave Memorial# 22775739 Walter Devere Thomas
Hello! I was wondering if you would allow me to attach (with appropriate credit given) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request. :)

Your Welcome! FYI in case you didn't see it that I added an area shot to Hugh's memorial so you can see how they're placed. Since their grave numbers are 1 & 2 you would think they were side by side but they're not. Again, glad I could help and enjoy the rest of the summer. Best Regards, Stacey

Coney Graves at Gibson Cemetery
Thanks for taking pictures of the Coney Graves. Would it be okay to copy and use these pictures on my husband's family tree, provided you are given the credit? He's only a cousin to the Coneys, so no transfer request.

RE: Bezaleel Maxwell.
Okay! I'm curious do you have any relation to the Maxwells?
