RE: Dock Wesley Breeden memorial page
Thank you I'll contact "Sharr" and see what can be done to get this memorial page fixed.

This is the only page I've found that has Doctor Breeden's info conflated with Benjamin "Bennie's" material. Benjamin's page seem's pretty clean so don't think there are any other pages for this pair to be fixed.

He is the son of Henry Harvey Fox Breeden and Arminta Belle Dean. Benjamin Bennie married 5 different women, Mary, Minnie and Maude Breeden; Letha Middlekauff and Helen Shoemaker.

Doctor Wesley Breeden dates 23 May 1893 - 18 May 1968 (died in Harrisonburg) is the son of Wesley Whitfield Breeden and Amanda Caroline Margaret Hensley. he is the brother to Henry Harvey Fox Breeden. Doctor Breeden married Gussie Meadows. Doctor Wesley was not actually a doctor but doctor was is birth name. Doctor Breeden is buried in Hensley United Methodist Church Cemetery.

Dock Wesley Breeden memorial page
The individual page for Doc Wesley Breeden shows you are the creator of the initial page.

I'm trying to discover what source document was used to suggest that his name is actually Benjamin?

I've seen it listed before but when investigated no one can provide a source document. All offical documents, marriage licenses, draft cards, death certificate never list the Benjamin as part of his name.

Hi, Are you familiar with the process that Findagrave now offers a new way for making Edits.

I have previously sent in to you Edits which have not been aaccepted as yet. Please go to Findagrave and click on Edits at the top of the page. Scroll down to Edits sent to me for approval. You will see two different Edits I have sent. Findagrave will automatically accept any Edits after 3 weeks if no action is taken. It is important to check this on a regular basis so no Edits are done without your knowledge.

Please let me know if you can find this part or have any questions. Carole Lee Alexander

RE: Ira Burke Casey
I did DNA testing for the Casey and Absher's and Found Lou Emma niece in another state last week. She is Wm. Lloyd granddaughter.
She would be my second cousin.
How are you related to Ira Burke Casey? .I know from my research there are Bowers in my family tree. How is your
wife related to the Absher's.
