John James Beasley, Jr.
While getting information for your photo request for the above, the cemetery office states they have a J.Charles Beasley buried there in 1984. This may help with you trying to verify his name, as I saw the two possible names in his bio. I will attempt to get out and get the photo within the next couple of weeks. Take care.

Louise Home
I had a great - great aunt Anna Louisa Lewis who lived in the Louise Home until her death in 1897. Do you know if there is a listing of the residents or other archives about the Louise Home?

Thanks for any help!

Thanks for bringing that to my attention. There was another one with six. I have no idea how this would have happened. All have been deleted. Thanks again.

I AGREE!
I like your philosophy:

(Pics) may not be posted to Ancestry or any other service requiring payment.

I totally agree!! This merger of Find A Grave & Ancestry has not been in OUR best interest :{

Thanks for the information. As a Wake Forest Alumnus ('66, '69) and long term faculty member, I admired him greatly.

RE: Gaines
I am not actively researching my late husband's Gaines line. Check my file: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=maold I update it after the 1st of each month but a may not have anything new on the line. Hope you find someone to give the book to. You could also consider donating it to the LDS Family History library or a local genealogical society.

re: Penelope Mercer Borden Memorial# 130771662
Gail and Penelope had eight children:
Mary 1829-1833, Henry Lee 1832-1902, Morton Quinn 1834-1846, Philip 1836-Deceased​, Philadelphia Wheeler
1837-1880​, Stephen Austin 1839-1844, Mary Jane
1841-1912, John Gail 1844-1892. All born in Texas.

I thought you might like to add this list to her memorial and add links for

John Gail, Memorial# 53013875
Philadelphia Wheeler "Phila" Borden Johnson, Memorial# 6579425

I am curious why I can't find a memorial for Henry Lee who is said to be buried in Woodlawn also. Same for H.L.'s widow Retta.
Let me know if you would like the sources for the children. I am a descendant of Retta's sister, Mary. I got bored and researched all of Mary's siblings recently.

Thanks for your work.
