Bio and Links
I'm a retired retail manager and Rep. for a major Company.
I have been involved in Genealogy research for well over 20 years and I have found this site to be one of the best genealogy tools out there. It is an outstanding site and when done correctly, it gives a wealth of information for researchers. I urge ALL to use the Links tools available on this great site and to add as much information as you can.
If I have a Grave that you would like to have ownership of, PLEASE do contact me and I will gladly transfer it to you.
I'm not perfect so, feel free to tell me of any proven errors and I will correct them.

Conflicting Marriage Date/Place for Felix Watt and Serrildia
Memorial# 8913189 for Felix Washington Watt says: Married: 4/07/1855, Edmonson County
Memorial# 51733378 for Serrildia J. Parrish Watt says : Marriage: April 20, 1854, Warren County

I found 4 marriage records for this couple (all different dates): F W Watt (no spouse entered) m. 7-Apr-1855 Edmonson County Serelda Parrish (no spouse entered) m.1854 Edmonson County F. Wortington Watt, Surrilda J. Parish, m.15 Apr 1854, Brownsville, Edmonson, KY
Watt Family Bible on FW Watt and Serilda J Watt married 20th 1854 (no month given)

Note: 1st child William W Watt, b. May 05, 1855
FYI: I will be using: April 20, 1854, Brownsville, Edmonson, KY

John C Watt's daughter Rachel
This is about memorial#51699173 for John C Watt. The notes section about daughter Rachel, shows middle name "Frances". I cannot find any records with that middle name. All documents I find show middle initial "W", starting with marriage record for "Rachel W. Watt". Sorry to be so picky, Don, but in researching the WATT family, I have found that your information is being duplicated all over the internet. You appear to be very thorough, and your research has saved me much time, and has helped immensely. Thanks, Lori

Invalid Spouse Link
Is there anyway to unlink a calculated relationship to spouse? The spouse associated with Silas Marion "Doc" Runner (Memorial#52891612) is not correct. The correct wife of Silas Runner was Sarah Watt (daughter of Jesse Watt and Sally Floyd). The incorrect spouse shown on the memorial is the daughter of John Watt and Elizabeth Lowden. I have backup data if you need me to provide it to you.

Invalid Marriage date: Memorial# 51912845
Memorial# 51912845: Marriage occurred before birth. I think it need to be changed to: 02 Sep 1840, Edmonson County, Kentucky, USA

I'm looking over some memorials I manage & noticed you're using the flowers/notes section to suggest corrections. Instead, per the FAQ's found under "help w/ find a grave", when looking @ a memorial click on the tab "edit" & the link "suggest a correction". Only then is the manager notified. Thanks :)

Priscilla Paradine Watt

The birth and death Place for Priscilla Watt #51749031 you have as Sand Hill in Warren County, Kentucky. I was wondering if you had some documentation on that. I know the family was in Warren and Edmonson Counties in Kentucky, and she married John Melvin Cown in Bowling Green, but I was not able to pinpoint birth and death places other than Kentucky. Can you help me out here.

Thank You, David A. Allen #48282297

Nice pictures of Priscilla, John, and Jessie.
