I noticed that you are maintaining the memorial of Nancy Ellen Turner Drake. I just wanted to let you know that you need to link her only daughter to her memorial. Eva Mae Drake Woodhouse is buried in Reedley Cemetery too. Eva was my husband's grandmother.

Thank you,

RE: Brayton George Murray
No problem. Thanks so much for clarifying the information. Separately, I sent you links to his parents. Brayton was a twin. His twin, Burton died shortly after birth. Brayton never married.

Thanks for you help!!

I believe there is a wife mixup for John David Byrd whose wife was Ida D. (do not know her maiden name). Helen Elizabeth Watson was wife of John's brother, Pleasant Wightman Byrd.

RE: Mary Francisa Lansdon
Thank you for that info Sterling! I did know that my GGG grandmother married a George Burkett, but I haven't yet been able to locate him on ancestry yet and am not sure when or for how long they were married, or what became of him. On that 3rd picture on her memorial (the one where she has 3 children and her 2nd husband (Alexander Lansdon) with her, the oldest girl in that photo was named Mary Inez Burkett & she had an older brother, John C. Burkett, not shown in that photo. Also, judging by the age of Mary Francisca's youngest baby, it was likely she was holding Henry Lansdon, in that photo (of course it's damaged, so we'll never know...) I will probably stop by your cemetery sometime this winter and even though my GGG grandparents don't have a marker, maybe someone can show me the section that they're in? :0) THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!!! xoxo ~~Sherry

Josie Turner Henness Memorial# 33779990
Sterling for some reason I tried to send thru edit suggestion and it would not work??????? Maybe your email has changed? Anyway I send you name update for Josie you have her memorial showing surname as De Nettie which is actually her middle name and should be Henness maiden name Turner

De Nettie there is no husband named that even her SSI has her name as Henness. I have searched everywhere and can not find a trace of another marriage to a De Nettie nothing can't even find it as a surname when I used that alone when I went looking.
Along with that even her husband had his middle name on his headstone......this De nettie is her middle name. :) thanks yes I know you can not do it up am sure I am right I even have all her siblings

RE: Albert Matthews
Hi Foster! Yes that would make me very happy. How nice of you to ask! He is my great grandfather. My grandmother was his only child. My father was his only grandchild, and my sister and I are the only great grandchildren! I hope to meet you soon! Do you ever go to the AZ State Capitol archive library! Would you like to meet my cousin and me sometime there? She is a member of First Families. Also I did attend the Memorial Day event at the Schmurthwait House, I never thought to ask someone if you were there? Again thank you for all you do to facilitate connecting the past to the present for so many people! Roxxi
