Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been married 57 years but we have no children. I was an elementary teacher for 21 years, quitting in the spring of 1972 to stay home and care for a nephew for five years. After he became school age, I went back to work in 1977 as a police dispatcher and continued in this work for approximately ten years. I began my family research shortly before quitting this job. I took over publication of a family newsletter when the original publisher was no longer able to continue. I enjoy exchanging information with other researchers.

RE: Carolina Poe
Very true. Some things we may never know, but at least the "options" have been documented. Thanks for your help.

By the way, I think I said Hunt Co. I meant Huntsville, and I see its in Walker Co.

RE: Carolina Poe
Just as an interesting sidenote as her father was so adamant on the issue of instrumental music that split the Christian and churches of Christ, Minnie married a hardcore Baptist.

RE: Carolina Poe
Francis and Sophia are interred in Oakwood Cemetery in Hunt Co., TX. I've already edited Minnie. If it helps any, at the time of Carrie's birth, NYC was only a part of Manhattan. It would be many years before the other boroughs would be incorporated. I still tend to lean towards the validity of the obituary since the writer appears to be a close personal friend.

RE: Carolina Poe
I'm glad you liked the obituaries. You were correct in changing her maiden name to Wright -- this is confirmed by her marriage license and the death certificates of her daughters Minnie Myers and Florence Atmar (which I could quickly find), but I have no idea where the name "Heydon" comes from. It is not in the article referenced on her husband's page. She is frequently recorded after her marriage as having the middle initial of "H", but that middle name appears to be Harrison, and that her daughter Carrie Harrison was named after her. I have submitted edits that you can accept to make this change and to add her NYC birth (which is confirmed by census listings). Thanks.

Thank you for researching the plot number for Oma. She's related to me. I'll add it to her memorial. All the best, Lynne

Hi Joan,

You must not have known that Dorothy R. Clark Hoffman (1900-1988) was married first to Leon Stanford Johnston on May 15 1920 in Atlantic, Cass County, Iowa before she married Russell Milo Hoffman.

Leon Stanford Johnston was born in Mitchell County, Iowa on November 24, 1894 and died in Los Angeles County, California on July 31, 1946. He is buried in Atlantic, Cass County, Iowa.

Find A Grave contributor Joan Viney has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Emmarilla Logan.
Link to memorial:
Link to contributor profile:
Email address of contributor:

Their suggestion:
Although her name is inscribed on her husband's gravestone, Emmarilla Cassandra (Bruton) Logan is actually buried in Maple Park Cemetery in Aurora, Missouri and has a gravestone erected there. Therefore, this memorial is a duplicate of Memorial #20465464.

Then this is not a duplicate but needs to be marked as a cenotaph. I will send to findagrave admin and request it be done.
