RE: Frank Conklin
"SR" would be a perfect description for Frank. His first child was only 2 months old when he died and his wife immediately moved back to her folks in Michigan. Again, many thanks for the obit and death date.

Frank Conklin
Thank you so much for posting the death date and obituary for Frank Conklin, buried in the Washington Cemetery, Houston, Texas. I have searched for this information for 30+ years. There is not a death record (I have been told) on file for him. I am most grateful!!

Hi Gene, Wasn't quite sure how to handle this, so hopefully you can straighten it out. She was listed as Mrs. J C Moody. Her name is Francis "Fanny" Henricks, and her husband was John C. Moody. Please list as you see best! Nancy

RE: Find A Grave memorial for Cecelia Simpson
Do what you want to do but the title "Mrs" was not intended to be on every memorial on Find A Grave of every married woman. That is why there is no "Mr." or "Miss" title for you to use.

As for the military title, they were intended for those who were KIA or retired from the service. It is a little strange to see "Pvt Thomas Jones" who was 90 years old when he died yet he only served 18 months in WWI.

And when a woman is married several times, every surname she has had doesn't go on the title. Only the one on her marker and if that is unknown, the one she had at the time of her death.

Do what you want.

Would appreciate receiving information on bases or source on why you say:

My reply:

If you go to the discussion forums, the story of why "Mrs" was added is there.

It was added as there was no way to handle the tombstones that had "Mrs" inscribed on them. It was not put there to be put on every married woman's memorial. In the past, by adding it as part of the name, it became the first name and used "M" for Mrs in the search index. So, to resolve that problem, it was added as a title for the tombstone with the title "Mrs".

Yes, Walker is her maiden name. Her middle name is Fisher. First name is actually Ann, with Annie being her nickname.
If you would like to view her death certificate you could copy/paste in URL:
