|Kimberlee (Center) Watts||RE: Winton|
I wish I could help you. So far I haven't discovered a connection but if I do I will keep you in mind.
|KDQ||RE: Sarah Lee English and Cora Lee Bennett English|
I am so glad.
I have been working mostly on Find A Grave in my spare time lately. I decided to actually work on my trees in Ancestry.com since I had been neglecting them. That's how I ran across your Find A Grave for Cora and the other one set up in Texas.
I am related to you. We are first cousins 2X removed. My great grandmother was Marion Ruth English.
I have been working on Cora Bennett's lineage for the past year and a half (off and on). Her mother was given as Mary Ann King with King being the maiden name in many family trees. However, I think this may not be the case. I believe that Mary Ann married a King. It is possible that Mary Ann's maiden name was Hamilton. I haven't followed her thread in our tapestry as far as I need to yet.
I am glad you are watching over Stephen and Cora.

Hi Jean, my great grandmother was an English, and my grandmother passed down our family tree to me. I was researching Louisa J Dameron when I came across your contribution to this site, which I thought was amazing, but according to my records, it says that she was Cherokee, do you know of this or have any proof?

Are you a member of the family presently managing this family tomb? I was speaking to Emily, a member of Save Our Cemeteries, about your family tomb and the panel laying on the ground now used as a passage way causing great wear to the panel. Emily told me this is the oldest panel in the cemetery to her knowledge. Emily would like to speak to someone about moving the panel from the ground to the side/back of the tomb.
If you wish to speak with Emily please email me and I will give you her email and you can contact her directly.
About the tomb, I have added obits to some of the members but could not get Find A Grave to post them even though they do fall within the required guidelines so I have put them as captions under my photos.
Have a great day.
|Ruth Aguilar||Rebecca Maude Duncan|
Good Morning, Jean,
I just took the liberty of posting Rebecca's photo on your memorial for her. I hope that is OK. When I took the photo out from behind the glass so I could scan it I found a neat hand written message in old ink that gave the info I have also put under the photo. The photo belonged to my great, great grandfather, Wm McGill Duncan and Rebecca was his cousin. It was a thrill to find it! I have finished copying Grandpa Duncan's Civil War story from his notes and would be happy to send it if I could find your email. as always, Ruth
|Mike & Bushy Hartman||missing postings|
The posts are on your profile page their still there I just noticed them after I posted to you.
|Mike & Bushy Hartman||RE: Diamond|
Oh boy, I am so sorry Jean I don't have the paper I wrote the info on and what I found, it should all be on the memorials I hope. I work in high volumes so I don't have an email sent to myself of what I sent I already have so many from the edits I submit for memorials I am posting photos to. I basically went back and wetted my soft work glove and wiped water on the plate which made the letters somewhat stand out (see photos on memorials). The part that was unreadable is gone nothing remains to bring up, so sorry about that. People have been walking on it. I tried doing a rubbing gently with paper and pencil but it didn't work possibly due to the high humidity, it is so high my map that I carry is now all crinkly like it was sprayed with water.
There is a line with dates right under the middle break but no name. I thought there were possibly dates after the word "Born" but it was "Born in Ireland", no dates.
I hope that helps in some small way such a shame when they put the stones on the pathways but I guess better than throwing them away or crushing them for other purposes.
You could always send for all the Diamond death certificates (not sure what info they have) there is the gov't site http://www.sos.la.gov/HistoricalResources
You can order them from or write asking what info is on the death record possibly shedding light on the mystery people. I had to do this for my family in VA.
|Mike & Bushy Hartman||Van Valin|
Jean I think that is Viola Adelina Diamond below Arelia birth date is a bit off from what the records show but that is not unusual.
|Mike & Bushy Hartman||Diamond|
Went back sweeping did nothing the stone is actually worn away but I did wet my work glove and gently wiped the panel and it helped so you may wish to check out the memorials again. I also found a couple of obits and posted them.
I posted photos to the Melson memorial 131223745 and Van Valin of the tomb and close up of the door. Arelia is the daughter of Mark and Amelia Diamond.
