Bio Photo I am interested in researching JETT/GARRISON families mainly in Iowa/Tennessee/Kentucky/Oklahoma/Missouri/Arkansas/Texas and Virginia and GORVIN/ORGAN/MURPHY families

I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TRANSFER ANY MEMORIAL! Just ask

"Dear Ancestor"

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Efton Clifford Garrison
My Paternal Grandmother was Efton Clifford's sister. From what my Grandmother told me, Clifford was working at a store in Snyder when there was a disturbance by a black man outside. He went out on the street to help defuse the situation and was shot dead by the man. I posted the picture from his funeral. I have not been able to find a newspaper account of the event, but am still looking. I have lots of information on the Garrisons if I can help you in any way.

I sent a couple of incorrect relationship SACs to you (I put the child's # in the spouse slot, oops), and just now sent the corrections. Sorry for the error! The new SACs will fix it.

Charles Knight
Thanks for all of your hard work contributing to Findagrave.com.


I am writing to request transfer to me of the page for Charles Knight (1797-1870); Findagrave #99696598.


Charles Knight was my g-g-g-grandfather. He was a Massachusetts-educated "druggest" who moved to Ohio County, KY. He had two daughters. In the 1840s, the family moved to Potosi, WI. They moved back to KY at the outbreak of the Civil War. He died in Ohio County, KY (thus the grave you have recorded.) I have just now added a pic of him to your page.


Thanks in advance for your consideration to transfer. My screen name is Johnny Drury; my Findagrave Member number is 47696793.

Samuel Bailey Correction
Thanks for all the work you're doing. I just wanted to bring to your attention a correction for Samuel Bailey buried in Piney Grove Cemetery, Midtown, Roane County, Tennessee. His mother was Sarah F Isham Bailey (2 Mar 1845 - 7 Jan 1914). Samuel's middle initial is "L".

BOBBY:

THANKS SO MUCH for revising the listing for Mae Eveline Fairall... SO QUICKLY !!
Is it possible to add dates?

Birth: Jan 1850
Death: Mar 1924

Also... could you revise the word 'spinster' to 'devoted' music teacher (piano)

I did not know that you would add my comments to her listing... probably my use of the word 'spinster' was not kind.

THANKS... ALIX

Mae Heard (Oakland Cemetery)

Mem: 94886981 Mae Heard (Oakland Cemetery..Iowa)

FANTASTIC to find Mae's headstone. (I discovered the listing while researching her sister, Anna Rachel Fairall Heard). Is it possible to revise the listing for Mae to 'Mae Eveline Fairall'? Mae was a spinster music teacher and was the last living member of her 'Fairall' family in Iowa City IA. Her father was Truman Fairall (1799-1869); her mother was Mary Pusey Husband Fairall (1810-1892); her siblings were: Anna Rachel Fairall Heard (1828-1910; Martha 'Mattie I. Fairall Fickey (1832-1911); Samuel Husband Fairall (1835-1909); Herman Harrison Fairall (1840-1912); Herbert Snowden Fairall (1854-1907).
FIND-A-GRAVE has been so very helpful in my research. Your work is very much appreciated. In many cases, the only photos that I have of past relatives are from FIND-A-GRAVE.

THANKS... ALIX
