I was so excited to see that someone knew where Mendora's first husband was buried. I always wondered.

Hi John,
First, I want to say thank you for all that you do for Find A Grave! Now, I would like to take a little work off your hands. Could you please transfer the management of Ennis W Ashe (Memorial# 35504636) to me? I added and manage 2 of his children. Ennis W. Ashe Sr. is the great-grandfather of my son-in-law. Take care, Aileen (Speegle)

John...I don't suppose any of your Mathis family moved into Georgia and on into the Walker County, Alabama area by chance did they? From there they would have gone to Le Flore County, Oklahoma. James Joseph Mathis marrying Elizabeth Phillips in Walker County. Their son George Grover Cleveland Mathis was my grandfather.

Ring any bells? They were a mysterious family albeit for a good reason I am told. :)

Highway 36 east cemetery butts co., ga
the highway 36 east cemetery is actually the Towaliga County Line Baptist Church Cemetery greatly a colored cemetery and has a link listed on find a grave site in Butts Co., GA every memorial from the hwy 36 cemetery needs to be transferred to this one. and the highway 36 east cemetery then needs to be deleted from the site. I started using the edit key on individual memorials and realized there were more that you had created here sorry for the confusion i did use the edit key for all that should be deleted as duplicates thanks for all you do with find a grave

John, Sent a request through your EDITS on this, your profile page, to link Henry to his parents. Thank you, appreciate your help and kindness.
This makes it easier, not having to retype everything.
Thanks again,
Happy Thanksgiving,

Thank you so much!
Thank you for this taking this picture! My eyes filled with tears when I saw my grandmother Mary Agnes Kennedy-Zacharias (Grandma Bee) next to my grandfather George Zacharias, Never had the privilege of meeting him.... I have memories of her in sitting on the couch playing with me when I was a little boy.
Thank you,
Derek Zacharias
