|Bio and Links|
I've lived in Mississippi, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Louisiana, and traveled in many other states. I currently reside in west Texas. Genealogy research should be shared. Anyone who wants my pictures or information is welcome to it. I am grateful to those who unselfishly post their findings and pictures and share with others. |
I also appreciate the team efforts of findagrave members-those who contribute pictures, obituaries, and family links. I don't mind death certificates on my postings. Not only is this site used to perpetuate the memory of loved ones, but it is also used to help others track their ancestors. Really, what is the difference in copying information from a death certificate than just posting it?
Also, the new Edit system is great, but members, please check the requests before you blindly hit Accept. I've caught many errors in these edit requests. Please don't hyphenate last names or ask me to do so. Consider how difficult it is to search for an ancestor with a hyphenated last name.
And, do we really need copyrights on a headstone picture? How ridiculous! We need to leave our egos at the cemetery gates.

|Sandi K ||Mittie Andrews|
Thank you so much for the info on 'Mittie'. I had a picture in my mind of Mittie & Cattie - though of course I am not from the area and was not positive of her last name. You have cleared up the mystery as was disturbed to have to list her the way I had with no last name not having one on stone. Got that picture in mind of two lovely young women of their time in fancy dresses going to parties and with their very cute, feminine nicknames! Hope the weather clears and ground dries out for more picture taking. Have enjoyed trying to finish up Cotton Plant - it is a beautiful burial ground. Again thanks! Sandi

James Cecil Niblett was my grandfather. Could you correct his birth and date of death? He was born July 11, 1901 and died September 10, 1975.

Yay, the death certificate. I looked for it but couldn't find it. That's good enough evidence.

I appreciate your patience with my multiple Edits on this cemetery. Am slowly getting in all the pix I took and finding things on tombstones you hadn't had access to without the pictures. Sorry to keep sending, but I do appreciate you taking care of them. Happy graving. Sandi

|Linda Glover||RE: Joseph Proctor|
Other people say his middle initial was W. I do not have proof either way.
|Linda Glover||RE: Joseph Proctor|
I am glad you asked for my reasoning for wanting to edit the birth date for Joseph Proctor instead of just accepting my opinion. I've seen several errors on Find A Grave.
My thinking: In the 1900 Census his birthday is given as September 1844. The preceding censuses back that up. His birthday each year is, of course, after the census was taken in the summer.
In the 1880 census his age is 35. In 1870, his age is 25. In 1860, his age is 15. In 1850, his age is 6 (seems to be a slight error there.) These would all back up the September 1844 birth date. The 1840 census for his father lists only 1 male child, and that would have been his half brother.
The death certificate looks like someone wrote his age down as 70, which would have been correct, and then changed it to 80 when they double checked the birth year. I suspect his son who was the informant just made a mistake. He didn't know his grandparents' names either.
There are other reasons including the fact that his father had a different wife in 1834, not Joseph's mother, but I don't have exact dates for those marriages. Joseph was my great great grandfather's brother. My gg grandfather Jeremiah "Jerry" was born in 1847. The two were very close and followed each other around Texas. My great grandmother Daisy talked of him and staying with them after her mother died. Joseph's wife Eliza was born in 1841.
Thank you for your time.
|Jerry Rodgers||Father of Homer A. Webster|
Hi Kathy, I am looking for information on my dad's father Walter G. Webster. He was married to Ruth Jane Capps. I have his grave site information and a little information on the family. I cannot find any other information on his life as to where he was born or lived during his life, or any info. on him and his parents, my great grands (don't know their names either.) I've found a little info on the Census records, but can't go any further on anything. It's like he dropped off the edge of the world. I do know he died in Memphis,Tn and lived in Blytheville, AR. My parents were Hilda Lorene White Webster and Homer A. Webster.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my husband's (Jerry L. Rodgers) is rbeepbeep@Yahoo.com He is on Ancestry, I'm not.
I've learned some of my 2nd cousins have run into the same problem.
If you can give me ANY kind of information, I'd appreciate it very much.
Thank you, Judith (Judy) A. Webster Rodgers
