Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been able to visit my ancestor's grave that someone had posted. I probably will never get to visit in person, so I appreciate that "proxy" visit you provided.

On my memorials, I include the parents' names and place of birth if I can find them, as it certainly can help knowing which "John/Jane Doe" it is. I also like to add a title such as "Rev." or "Dr." to a memorial if appropriate, as it can save time in doing a search with 45 names all the same, in same state. I see some with titles on the tombstone, yet it is not entered with the name (perhaps the photo was added a guess.)

I honor veterans (all wars) with a flag, or floral tribute, especially if they don't have one.

I welcome information or a correction to a memorial. I usually don't edit or check to be sure it is accurate, nor do I act as judge and jury over whether to add it. Check it if you doubt it. On memorials I contribute, I try to check the state and other records to assure it is accurate, but still I make mistakes. Use the white Edit tab at right top of the memorial. I will transfer a memorial if you are a relative, but I'd expect you to transfer if someone else asks you and they are closer kin.

My Family names I research: Vance/Sinclair, Yarbrough/Ellis/Young, Montgomery/Posey, Barnett/ Reynolds; Yandell/Sparks, Lee/Durham, Ward, Powell/Weaver.

With the "new edit" method, I don't always write a 'thank-you' nor do I expect one. We all have plenty to do to keep up. BUT, be assured that I do APPRECIATE any addition/correction, or PHOTO REQUEST you fulfill for me. Please accept this as my thanks for your efforts.

I received your recent edit to include "Rev" in the title section of this memorial.
I really prefer not to include any titles in any memorials with the exception of a service member who died while serving our country.
I had already included the information that this individual was a "Free Will Baptist Minister" in the bio section and hope this will suffice.
Please let me know if this will be sufficient.

Hi - just noticed you added a newspaper article about her being honored with a marker last year. Thank you so much for taking the time to do that. Regards, Phyllis

RE: Da Topping - reply
No problem. A few of these garbled ones are still listed so you have helped me get rid of another one. Thanks!

Da Toping photo request
Hi - regarding your photo request for a "Da Toping" in Camp Butler National Cemetery, that is an incorrect name that was downloaded from the VA Database years ago. He is actually David N. Topping, and he has a correct entry with a tombstone posted, here:

The plot is the same so I know this is the same person. I will ask Findagrave to remove the incorrectly downloaded memorial, but you may want to remove the photo request. Thanks.

RE: Rev.Joshua P. Hunt, Modoc, Ind
My gr. gr. grandfather, John Wesley Hunt, b. 1797, had a brother, Joshua Parker Hunt, b. Oct. 16, 1805, but I do not have a sibling listed as Elihu H. Hunt on the list of their other siblings....Their parents were Col. John Tipton Hunt, Jr. and Mary "Polly" Denton...

Good luck in your genealogy research...

Thanks for the info on children of Barnet and Clara (Chapman) Southwick. However, they did not have a daughter named Hannah. Hannah (Southwick) Peppler of New Jersey is no relation to Barnet Southwick.
