Leander Huffman #85065041
Hi Karen!

I really need your help on this one, can you or someone possibly go out and look at this Headstone, BUT only when you get the chance.

Need to find out what the year Leander Huffman died. From the looks of the photo, and I know the headstone itself is pretty weather beaten, and over 140 years But, in your photo, it looks like the year says 1870 or 1879, but can't make it out 9 or 0? I want to say "0". This is my G-Grandmother Lorretta HUFFMAN-Kilgore's youngest brother.

Thank You, and GOD Bless!

RE: Rosille C Ball / Hall
I have found many mistakes in the library data base. One that is more common than you may think is the misreading of very large stones at the cemetery or some very large obvious ones that have never been read in the past 60 years. Another one is when the obit says buried at Matthews they place them at the IOOF and they were buried at Harmony or Olive Branch. This is true of some burials as late as the 1960's. Thanks for your kind attention to fix this. Have a great day!

Rosille C Ball / Hall
As I was adding pictures to Matthews IOOF cemetery, I noticed that the picture I had for Rosille C Ball really had the name Hall on it. I then looked up that name on Find A Grave and found it was already posted with a picture under Hall. memorial # 114929495. There are no Balls at Matthews IOOF.

In going back over my stuff I found I created duplicates of your memorials of the Nelson family. Before I deleted mine, as yours were created long before, I thought we could update with family connections etc. But I am not sure how to go about this. I can make edit notes for your memorials but I thought you might know how we merge. I don't mine doing the edit just let me know how as you created them first. Sorry and let me know.

Son of McCoy
Just to let you know....his name is 'OTTO'. It is carved on the top of the headstone. Noticed this while researching McCoys in my family.

Solomon Harter Search - Thanks
Thanks for looking for Solomon Harter (b.1799,d.1868). As a result of your input I have made updates in my records and his Find A Grave memorial to reflect the search and my conclusion that he is most likely resting near his wife in an unmarked gravesite.
