RE: Hodges
Hi Linda by all means use the obits I sent them in to be posted but so far few end up showing on the memorials. Happy you can use the photos I am hoping to do the whole cemetery.
Have a great day

Calvin Hodges
Hi Linda,
Well this is odd, found Calvin in the NOLA Death Index but this is his obit...

HODGES-On Thursday, Nov. 21, 1912, CALVIN T. HODGES, husband of MAMIE I. DICKSON, a native of New Orleans and a resident of Ocean Springs, Miss
Funeral on arrival of 9:10 a.m., train, Terminal Station, This (Saturday) Morning, Nov. 23, 1912. Interment private.
[Times-Picayune, Sat. 23 Nov 1912, pg 6.]

I don't quite understand but already submitted NOLA as his place of death so will go resubmit it as MS.

Hi Linda,
You posted on the Lavinia Hodges memorial 12150532 in Lafayette Cem 1 in New Orleans that she died in NOLA but that is not what her obit says please see following:

HODGES-At Mossy Creek, East Tennessee, on Wednesday, August 6, at 3 o'clock a.m., MRS. L.M. HODGES, widow of the late HENRY HODGES, aged 70 years.
[Times-Picayune, Sun, 10 Aug 1879, pg 6.]

I checked the NOLA Death Index and she was not there. If you would like to change the note you left on her memorial when you have time.
I also just posted photos of the tomb, door is a wee bit hard to read.
Have a great day.

Thanks Linda. I don't do this often enough to remember all the procedures.

RE: Ware
Linda, Thank you for your kind words. It is because of people like you, who appreciate the sacrifices made by the Find A Grave volunteers that many of us continue to do what we love to do. Baldwin County, Alabama is approximately 80 miles long (North to South) and 40 miles wide (East to West), it has a total area in square miles of 2,027. Compare that to the entire state of Rhodes Island, which has a total of 1,545 square miles. We are the largest COUNTY in the state of Alabama. With over 218 recorded cemeteries and about 25 that I am personally working or trying to locate, I put a lot of miles on my old truch on my too few, too infrequent days off. Add in the cost of fuel these days, and one must ask why? But it is for those like you who will thank us.

Now, Wynn Cemetery was founded by John H. Wynn in 1897 in Summerdale, Alabama. I have not been able to determine if the cemetery was ever "officially" named Summerdale, but the Wynn's were some of the original founding families of Summerdale, and remain so today. The cemetery is physically located about 1 mile from the center of the old town, as the crow flies. Sadly the few remaining businesses still in the old town are "Charlies Barber Shop" owned by one of my old Navy friends, Charlie Wright, and the "Summer Scoops Ice Cream Parlor" owned by my friends Mayor David Wilson and his wife Hope. There are a sprinkling of original homes from the 1900 era and the Old Tobacco Warehouse which was built in 1903 when Tobacco was a big crop in south Baldwin County.

I will continue to search for any other leads on your Ware family from here in LA (Lower Alabama), and thanks again for your encouraging support.
