RE: Catherine Morningstar, Mem #22479889

I am the wife of Terry Akin who died in 2011. I maintain his memorials. You can either give me the parents memorial numbers to link them or you can request to take over the memorial and do it yourself.

RE: 120917160 - John McGuire
Thank you Loretta!

It looks like I shouldn't have gone by someone else's spelling on this and wasn't aware that in Ireland the word County comes before and now after the name of it.

Have a great day!

Let me know......
if you want all the Lynns.....I care deeply about Pauls Graveyard, but if you're a descendent you should maintain them and add your own bios and stuff

by the way, my brother and I have worked on creating a land ownership map of that area.....your Lynns and my Mortons are right next to each other
