Melvina Roach-Culiver

Melvina's DC is not correct...if you look at her parents Marr in 1833 Gr Co TN. and all the other documents on her you can tell....just like headstones DC's are not always correct

OPPS!!! Thank you for catching that, I had it on my paper correctly but also had a child of Ham Roach & Caroline Mayes written down just below it

Thanks, Shar

PS. I have never seen any evidence on any documents that Kate or Katherine Yates was Mary Catherine , have You?

Henry Bates 77257877
Pleaase be patent.
I try to verify all suggested changes.
You suggested the his birth date be changed to 1890. The headstone and the 1900 census show 1891.


I can find a draft record showing another Henry Bates born January 2 1890, but he is not the spouse of G Geenlee or the child of James & Mary.

I will continue to research Henry and will make changes as I can verify them.

Thank you,

PL Greenlee

I am Eleanor Morrison Lawson. James is one of my extended family. Would you mind me having copies of the tombstone and death certificate for my family files. I am 87 years old and unable to travel to cemeteries to make my own pictures.
Thank you so much for the work you do with Find A Grave.
