In reference to a notation on find-a-grave, do you have info on:
Mary _____ Anderson 1770-1809 (GMOTHER)
Mary Anderson 1795-1870 (MOTHER)
Mary Ann Emory 1826-1890 (DAU)
I'm just trying to find a maiden name for Mary 1770-1809???
Thanks in advance,

|Cathy Yancy Elliott||RE: Re Gerena Curl|
The only thing I know about Gerena (she is my Step Great Great Grandmother. My Grandmother Eleanor Eddy Dozier worked for her when she was about 19 years old. My grandmother stated that Gerena was a very difficult person to get along with. One day, my grandmother went to the outhouse to use the facilities and found that Gerena had hanged herself in the outhouse. She had commited suicide. Since then, Gerena's grandaughter (through her daughter Jesse), Mildred (my grandmother's half sister) also commited suicide as well as 2 of Mildred's sons Gary and Richard. I'm not certain, but I don't think Gerena is buried with her husband. I have wondered if she is buried on the property where she died?
Do you know if there have been any other incidents of suicide amongst any of Gerena's other offspring?
If you find any information pertaining to her burial place, please pass it on.

I walked over the entire cemetery 3 times but I couldn't find a marker with her name on it. There are several markers near Mr. Johnson's marker that I was unable to read. If she died 1899 then it could be one of these unreadable old markers. The other Johnsons, Merrit, John and Edna are close together. Is it possible she could be buried in another cemetery?
The records were dependent on penmanship and hearing. The correct is Logsdon but there are several places where the in ending occur. Vina's tombstone is one example. Roy
|Betty||Relationship to James Johnson|
I enjoy meeting new cousins. My question to you was how are you related to my 4th great-grandfather, James Johnson. You wrote that James is your 3rd great-grand uncle on a flower that you put on his memorial. You did not answer my question as to how you are related to James. I am very interested to know. I am doing a book on James Johnson and have been working on this line for many years and know his line very well. Please let me know how James is your 3rd great-grand uncle. Thank you in advance, Betty Johnson O'Brien

You entered information on a floral entry (which is frowned on by Findagrave) the memorial for James Johnson, Sr. b. 16 Jan 1761 in Ireland, memorial # 11566780. You wrote that James Johnson is a 3rd great grand uncle to you.
Please explain how that could be possible. You could answer me here on my Find A Grave page or email me.

I am in the process of putting together a Vanatta family history for publication. Gerena Vanatta Curl was my great aunt. she was the sister to James Vanatta, my great grandfather. Is it possible that you would know where she is buried and if there is anyone that would provide a photo of her or any of the family? They will be recoginized as the submitter for any information I do not already have and for any phots they may wish to let me us.

|Cathy Yancy Elliott||RE: Re Jessie Mae CURL Beer Eddy #37712482|
It is always nice to meet distant relatives. My grandmother, Eleanor Eddy Dozier was the step daughter of Jessie. Jessie raised my grandmother. Thank you for acknowledging the hard work that I have done on find a grave. There is still so much to be accomplished. My grandmother was a saver of paper clippings. I'm glad she clipped all of those articles. She didn't live long enough to see them published, but I know she would have been proud.
God bless you always!

|George Paul Farris||RE: Your Elegant Hat!|
Receiving an assessment from a lady such as yourself proclaiming me as a southern gentleman is high praise indeed! I am certain my Mother would have been proud of your generous compliment.
Upon logging on to send you this note I couldn't help but notice your correspondence with "Ken" -- a most ungentlemanly action I know. Still I wanted to let you know that I and two of my brothers-in-arms from my brigade traveled to Antietam last Saturday and were both impressed and humbled by the men whose memory is preserved on that hallowed ground. Antietam -- the bloodiest single day in the history of American arms, it was a sobering experience.
|BIRDMAN||RE: Re Pvt H C Odenbaugh # 41989647|
As spouses being buried at Antietam, no Civil war era soldiers have spouses with them. There are WWI & WWII soldiers buried with their wives. There is one couple buried together that died the same time from a car crash.
There is one female nurse buried at Antietam and the wife of a past park superintendant also there.
I hope this answers your question,
