Ron Adams
Roland W. Adams at Barton Cemetery, AL
Scrappy, I am a half-nephew of Roland's and know only a bit of his history, never knew him personally. On Find-A-Grave, he is Pvt Roland Adams, and that veteran's status comes from his brief WW I service, August 27, 1918 through December 22, 1918, roughly four months. He was living in Michigan at the time of his enlistment, and served with the 42nd Field Artillery, 14th Division, Battery D. He ended up in Alabama later in his life. He was born in Ohio, lived in Michigan in his 20s, and was living in Arkansas in 1942. Thanks for all your good work on tracking our veterans.

Paul R NELSON at White Oak cemetery in Marshall Co. AL
Saw where you had a memorial note on his memorial. I have now posted a picture of his military tombstone. You may copy if you like. It is sinking into the ground and has a mold on it but I believe it will note his memory.

Fred and Elsie Hughes
Fred and Elsie Hughes are my grandparents. My mother is Christine. I do have Adam Wells as the father of Will and Emil. According to census info that I found, Adam was born in about 1859 in Ohio. Will was born in AL, but I don't have anything for his mother (Adam's wife).

Do you and any information on Rachel Hughes (Charlie S Hughes' mother)? All I know is that she was from the St Joesph, TN area. For some reason, I don't think she ever married.

I noticed you're researching the above line...I may have some information that could help. In additional to those families, I'm also researching the Romine and Wells families. I have extensive Romine information, but my trail is cold on the Wells line after Will (married Lillie Pearl Romine) and Emil (bothers). I know each brother inherited half the family farm on the highway where Emil lived. Emil got one side of the road and Will got the other side. I think their parents may have come directly from Germany, so that might explain why my trail is cold.

I'm not sure of the highway number, but it runs to hwy 72 and there's a gas station / store on the corner. Emil was hit by car and killed while walking to the store.

Emil Wells / Myrtle Smith Wells
Hello. Can you please create a spousal relationship between Emil Wells (8169799) and Myrtle Smith Wells (8169802)? Thanks!!!

As a note, Myrtle was struck by lightening and killed on their front porch (they lived between Hwy 72 and Antioch Church). She was wearing boots and the lightening knocked her out of them. I can remember visiting Emil and he kept her boots on the front porch. They were split open on the side from the strike.

Cassander Anders Urban
Hello Scrappy,
Cassander is my husband's gg-grandfather. His name is incorrectly listed as Cassander Anders Urban. The headstone reads "Cassander Urban", and is given name was "James Cassander Urban". We'd appreciate it if you could make that change for us. Thank you so much for listing him on find-a-grave!

Goodwin Family
Annie Ethel (mcGee) Goodwin 7983034 is the mother of 126725461 (Cecil) 126725539 (Mabel) and Infant 126725681 Would you like to just forward the memorials to me if it would help you out? If there are any Goodwins you would like to forward too me, I will be glad to manage them. If you can't I understand. With your veterans cemetery, do you want pictures as well as names to add? I have an interest in the military V.C. you have created. You do such a great job and it has been great to see and read !!!

RE: Daniel Blanton Hester, Jr #63781623
Dear Scrappy,

Thank you so much for leaving a memorial flower for Daniel, but I would request that you replace it with a more appropriate one, as posting an obituary as a memorial flower is not within Find A Grave guidelines and his obituary is already shown on his memorial. I appreciate all the hard work you do and all your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Most sincerely,

Thank you so much for making the link I requested.

God Bless
