Thank you:-)
Thank you for transferring my Uncle Dale and Aunt Frankie over. Uncle Dale was my grandfather's favorite brother. My Grandfather and Grandmother raised Uncle Dale along with all his other brother's and sisters. I wish you could have known him, pure mountain, wild to his last days but entirely devoted to his wife and other family.

I think, I have duplicated one your records. I did not realize until I had linked all the family members. If this memorial is not a family member would you consider deleting yours? J C Tipps is my family. Thank you

I had posted William, using his full name, Sorry, I didn't realize, you had posted him with just initials. He is buried at Birdtown Cemetery, if you would add his full name, I think the Lady who wrote me, telling me about the DUP, has written you also. I will deleted my posting, as yours was first.
Have a great day.
