I am trying to get to as many cemeteries as possible this year. I am taking pictures of everyone in a cemetery or at least in each section and uploading pictures to existing memorials or will create memorials. If you find a person that I have entered and would like management of memorial please contact me and I will gladly transfer. Anybody can use any of the pictures I take for any purpose even on other websites as long as you don't sell them.|

|Judi Kowalski||RE: Floyd Washington Dodd|
It has taken me five hours to find the answer to your question and it didn't help that I was over half way through my explanation to you when we had a ten minute power outage on my end so here I go again. First of all there are two Floyd Dodds in my family tree and no doubt in yours as well. The first Floyd W Dodd is another subject for another day as I have at last found out. Your great great grandfather, Floyd Washington Joseph Dodd (born 9 Jun 1857, in Mercer County in what was at that time the state of Virginia because, until 20 Jun 1863, there was no state of West Virginia - as you no doubt already know - and died in 1911 in Summers County, WV). I only know his year of death because it is etched into his headstone monument, which you took a picture of for his Find A Grave Memorial # 64954270 that you created, and not because there is any source documentation, such as a 'West Virginia Deaths Index' listing for him that I have been able to find. By the way, your great great grandfather Floyd Washington Joseph Dodd - the 1 Jun 1880 federal census for Jumping Branch, Summers, WV lists his name as such in the enumeration on that census - is one of my 1st great grand uncles. He was one of the four brothers of my great grandfather John Henry Dodd, born 20 Jun 1864 and killed in a heated argument with a drunk man when that same drunk man threw a half-pint bottle towards my great grandfather on 1 Sep 1943. The bottle changed directions in mid-air from bottom first towards Great Grandfather John to bottle top first. The bottle struck Great Grandfather John in the carotid artery in his neck with enough force to plunge into the artery and sever it. And the rest is history, as the saying goes. The man was put on trial for murder, was found guilty, sentenced to five years at hard labor in the Florida State Penitentiary in Raiford, FL and he served every day of his sentence as far as the family knows. At any rate, I have answered your question as to where I found the name 'Floyd Washington Joseph Dodd'. You can check out the census for yourself either on Ancestry.com or by viewing it in my husband's and my family tree - Kowalski-Sloniger Family Tree. At least I also found out that I didn't just accept the word of someone else's Public Member Tree on this one. And, by the way, though I must be older than you zre I'm sure, how's it going cousin?

HI - I'm doing a quick survey of about 400 people on my friends list just to see how many are aware of the new "Edits" tab on their home page. If you could just shoot me back a brief response, either way that would be great. Thanks.

You are always so prompt. I appreciate your help.
|Sheila||RE: Pine Eden Cemetery|
Ah-ha, it's helpful to know about the cemeteries being so close together. Now it makes sense why the photo is popping up for both. Thanks again. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hello, you added two memorials for distant members of my family tree, Percy and Mae Alexander. Percy is linked to two people I do not think are his parents! Can this be changed on your end? I will send a correction to his memorial. I don't know if it was even you who linked them... but according to the links, his father would have been 13 and his mother 9 when he was born!
