BTW, I wasn't lucky enough to grow up in Dunedin, but I did play in the adult City of Dunedin Pipe Band for 15 years and lived in Dunedin for about 10+ years. NOTHING in this part of Florida compares to Dunedin!
Thank you for graciously updating Louis & Malclom Johnson in Curlew Pioneer Cemetery!

The best concise documentation may be the Florida Death Index, 1877-1998 (ancestry.com): Virginia Jay Silvestro born 24 Apr 1915 and died 09 Feb 1982. This lists her full middle name and the birth date that agrees with my records (except Social Security Death Index lists 25 Apr 1915). She told me she was named for her father, Jay, when I asked why she had a boy's name. Thanks, MarGene Fortman

Creating a virtual cemetery for civil war soldiers of any state is a wonderful idea. Makes it easier for families to ressearch

Greetings! I'm contacting you as you originally created the entry for Rev. David Elkins (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSvcid=553972&GRid=30203297&). This is the first mention I've ever seen of David's wife as Elisabeth Estep. Do you remember where the original information may be found that you cited in the memorial? I'd like to find the source so that I might use it as well. Rev. Elkin is my g-g-g grandfather. Thank you so much!

One of Daniel Cripe's Sons was not added to the list. Jacob Cripe was my Grandfather and his Son. I also believe the name of his second wife was Mary Mohler. I do have information on this that I can formally send you. Thanks Iris Cripe-Eng
