Thompson family of Bertie county NC
Dear Sir,
I have sent and may send more edits regarding this old family. My source for these edits is a Thompson family bible held by the state of NC. My only problem is the huge number of Thomas(s) Thompson there were in every generation.
Thank you for your time.

RE: Richard S. Paulett
Thanks for your efforts. Late yesterday I found a Washington Post article from 1934. Paulett killed himself in DC. If you ever find his grave, please let me know.

Happy new year.....

Richard S. Paulett
Hi, Ray. I'm researching early members of my aviation group, known as the Quiet Birdmen. Richard Paulett became a member in 1929. He passed away by 1935, I believe. I suspect his father was Richard Paulett of Farmville (died 1902), but I'm not sure. Do you have any info on the younger Paulett?

Many thanks for your efforts.

Thanks for the photos.

We are related!

I have looked at your family tree website many times over the last few years but have only just recently worked out how we are related. I descend from Dr Simmons Jones Baker, who descends from Henry Baker and his first wife, Angelica Bray. Your line descends from Henry’s 2nd wife, Ruth Chancey and their son John.

I enjoy reading old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and trying to match the stories and articles to the memorials here on F-A-G. I have found the wedding announcement for John Graham and Marguerite Field in the Washington Times of 11/2/1916.

It sounds like quite an affair!

I am a Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our Civil War Soldiers that had roots/ties to Vermont, to post on the Vermont Civil War site. ( www.vermontcivilwar.org)
May I use the Monument photo that you contributed to Gen Churchill's Find A Grave Memorial page, and others, if there are others by you for this purpose?

You will receive proper credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

RE: Rotation
Hi Ray,
I know! Annoying, isn't it?!

I've tried a few times to reorient these photos and every time I do, they look fine when they open on the computer, and rotate back when I upload them! Tried resaving them, then rotating them and resaving again to no avail.

I'll give it one more shot and try opening them in photoshop, making a change, and then saving as a new photo and see if that works. If I had taken these with my phone, there is an easy fix that I've been sent by several helpful folks. However, I didn't take them with a phone, I used a digital camera and no one seems to have a fix for that yet lol!

As with all my photos, you are welcome to download the photo and rotate it yourself, as well as post it on ancestry or whatever. But I'll see what I can do.

And thanks for the compliments!!
Have a great day!!
Pam

Henry/Ray Burt Memorial #35939810
Hi Ray,

Nice to "meet" you. This photo was put up by Angie Robinson. Angie has posted thousands of photos and is very reputable. However, this one is a little tricky. The caption, which you can't read unless you click on the picture, states that Henry C is buried behind and to the right of Richard. She is generally very accurate and I would trust her on this one. So I suggest that her caption should be in the notes. I'll copy/paste it and credit her for the data. What do you think?
