edits for Hammacks Thank you VERY much. I am TRYING to 'accept' but the accept button is not working. I might have to just enter it myself. How do you know; are you related? If yes, I AM ELATED. They are distant 'in-laws' so my info was from word-of-mouth, and I also had found a doubt in a census, after I posted his parents and was going to remove them, but have had a lot of computer problems. I am working on the tree of their gr grandson and was given the name Tom... Is it possible that Thomas could have been married twice?
RE: Eliza Bryant You're welcome! There were some other Bryants nearby that I photographed and added memorials for. I assume they are related based on their proximity. Hope this helps further your research!
Thank you!! Randal: Thank you very much for taking a photo of the headstone of my relative Everett Austin. I sincerely appreciate your effort and also going the extra mile to clean the mud off of it!! I notice those little things! How is your knowledge of Madison County genealogy?
