RE: Thank you
Good idea... I'll start being careful on SACs I send you from now on! Seriously, though, you've got the right perspective even if some of those you've helped are jerks.

Have a great day!

Thank you

You continue to amaze me with all the memorials & photos you add and how fast you turn around updates. And now the COOL WAY you gave credit for the links! I am impressed by the way you did it, though it's certainly unnecessary (and a little embarrassing) when YOU are the one who's doing so much for me and hundreds of other researchers.

I do miss our correspondence since SACs became "auto". Hope things are great with you!

Hi Cecil
I was wondering if you have a picture of the full stone for James Lewis Baxter Find A Grave 8373942? If you do could you place that on James Lewis Baxter's Memorial please?

Thanks so much. Keep up the awesome work. Have a blessed week.

It isn't really necessary to publicly thank me for the relationship links and full names. I enjoy linking families back together again.

RE: George Fowler Sampson
I cannot say for CERTAIN, but I have him in the 1940 census remarried to Ollie after his first wife's 1937 passing. His youngest daughter is still living in the household with him - it was the only lead I had (thank goodness for!). When you're in the monument business, you know that a young widow/widower is most likely going to move on and remarry and leave yet another "double stone" (and cemetery lot) half empty. This is so misleading many years later. I messaged the owner of the other page and she put a note on his other page, but didn't "un-link" him to his first wife. I find it's better to leave the erroneous page up and put a note on it telling of the person's actual burial site so no one else creates that same erroneous page again. I believe you have him in the correct cemetery as his other stone has no death date inscribed (another industry clue!). Thank you again for your swift updates and your interest in having things done correctly; it's a pleasure to work with someone like you!

Thanks for linking Tom Hutchings to his parents Ray and Jeanne. It always feels good to see families reunited.

I know the family personally. Tom, the oldest of four children, moved to Houston as a young man. The other three stayed closer to home in Western New York. Beth, the youngest, is deceased. Tom's surviving sister and brother are Karen and Mark.

Their father Ray passed away in 2005, and mother Jeanne is still living. Thanks again.
