Your welcome
Your welcome! Thank you for posting it! I also sent the same message about Maggie Jenkins' memorial (her grave is in the same cemetery Find A Grave Memorial # 79814602 ) about a minute later. I guess it didn't go through. Such is cyberspace!

widow, grass widow, and divorce
I saw your comment about a not widowed female ancestor. It's most likely she said widow rather than divorced because it was more acceptable to be a widow. They were called grass widow.

I have two grandmothers who weren't divorced but who did not live with their husbands and they are listed in the census as widow. It didn't take much looking to find their "dead" husbands, one living in the same town. It does complicate the ancestor trail when you think half the couple is dead and you stop looking for them and start looking for a burial.

RE: Memorial #101794578
John: I have posted the picture of my grandmother on the memorial 73084134 Mary Eddie Holloway Allen. I also posted some pictures on some of the childrens' memorial pages. I couldn't get two to post but I'll try again on those. I noticed on the memorial page for Jean Allen Hill there was a note that she is listed in the 1940 Upson Co. Census with her widowed mother Eddie Allen. It may be in the census but that is incorrect information. Mary Eddie Allen was not a widow. She was divorced. Her husband and father of the children, Edgar Allen, did not die until 1971. Any information on the Allen family, I will be happy to supply. Many regards, Mary Ann Allen Caldbeck

RE: Mem. #101794578
Thank you for the quick reply to issues with Mary Eddie Allen's memorial.
Thought I would let you know too that I am in the process of photographing the Southview cemetery monuments in the final quarter now, and have posted about half from the digital record. This should help you some in Upson county relations.
Your research is a blessing !
Again thank you for all you do with find a grave.

St Joseph Cemetery-Page gravesite
Hi John-I filled your request for James Page's headstone picture. There was a pre-need engraving on the stone for Elizabeth L. Page (born in 1884 so I'm assuming his wife). She is not buried there according to the cemetery so the family has one gravesite open at this site...Mary

Robert F Favors
Hi John,

I saw the memorial that you created for Robert F Favors. What was your source for his parents' names? I thought I had him linked to Reuben Faver and Nancy Elizabeth Fanning, but then I read Reuben's will and there was no son named Robert. I would appreciate any help you could give.
