Catherine Faye Vaughan Bankston Duplicates
I noticed you have added two duplicate memorials for Catherine Faye (Vaughan) Bankston at Restland.

#152135199 - added 9/10/2015
#152135589 - added 9/10/2015

I had already made a memorial for her back in April 8, 2015. Now there are three memorials for her.

If you are family I will transfer the memorial I made for her and you can delete the two duplicates you have made for her. This will eliminate any confusion when someone does a search for her memorial.

Thank you in advance for taking care of your duplicates in a timely manner.

Hi Walter,
I don't know if the FindAGrave site lets you know, but I just added a picture of your lovely
wife's headstone to her memorial site. It was such a beautiful morning today that I drove out and took a couple pictures.

Newton Vaughn
I transferred Newton Vaughan to you since you had more info on his twin brother. It was transferred to me many years ago by a former member, but I am not related to Newton Vaughan.

James N. Vaughan
James N. Vaughan is my wife's great grandfather. Are you a member of the James N. Vaughan clan? Please tell me about the second picture of a stone called Capt. James Vaughan who was born (according to the stone) in 1816 and died in 1871. Is this the same James N. Vaughan whose headstone states birth as 1822? Please contact me at Thanks.
