RE: Find A Grave Changes
I'm glad that I could help. We are on a month's vacation so I won't be on Find A Grave a lot but will be in my spare time. I'm so excited because I found my biological 2nd cousin this morning and am in contact with him because of F-A-G.

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

RE: Eva Simmons Lily
Thank you for making that correction so quickly. I understand how overwhelming it can be to enter records for an entire cemetery, and I find little things I should have done when I go back through my own work as well. It's so wonderful, though, to be able to work on a new obituary and find other family members so a person is "connected". Glad you were able to provide the family connections here.

You are welcome. Glad I could help. The photos were actually taken a couple of summers ago. The cemetery is now covered with snow.

James Monroe "Monroe" Pitts
On second look at his CW pension card, I can see where his widow began drawing widow pension in 1903 and minor pension in 1904. He is last found on the 1900 census so perhaps he did die between 1900-1903.

This 1911 newspaper article could be for someone else. I'll look at it again. Thanks for checking with us.

James Monroe "Monroe" Pitts who was a Civil War soldier. I cannot find his death date and its driving me nuts. I know he died after 1911 (see 1911 newspaper article). Its possible they could have divorced.

He was first married to Mary's sister (Sarah Elizabeth Pitts) but divorced Sarah and married the sister Mary. Here are my notes on James Monroe Pitts:

== Biography ==
James Monroe Pitts was born in 1844 in Kentucky perhaps Trigg County. He said his father was born in North Carolina and his mother in Tennessee, when he reported to the Census in 1880. He came to Missouri with his family. He married Sarah Elizabeth Pitts, a daughter of Young Mimms & Anna Colston Pitts. In the 1880 census, James Monroe Pitts and Sarah Elizabeth Pitts had living with them a brother and two sisters of Sarah Elizabeth: Andrew Jackson Pitts who was 23, Mary C. who was 20 and Mahala who was 17. Their mother died in 1864 and their father married Elender Payne. Young Mims was killed by a run-away team in 1871. James Monroe and Elizabeth separated sometime soon after the 1880 and James Monroe married Mary C. Pitts, his sister-in-law. She was born May 3, 1861 and died February 21, 1912. Source; Pitts Family History, Volume 1, by Josephine Pitts Gambill, page 54
James Monroe Pitts came to MO with his parents.

== Military ==
He was in Company G, 8th MSM Calvary during the Civil War.
25 May 1911 The Index (Hermitage, Missouri)
Monroe Pitts was granted a pension under the late pension law. (THIS IS WHY I KNOW HE WAS STILL ALIVE)

== Marriage ==
James and Elizabeth seperated sometime after the 1880 Census and James Monroe married Mary C. Pitts, her sister.

== Census ==

1870 Green Twp., Elkton P.O., Hickory Co., MO Census, pg. 21b
James M. Pitts, age 26, M, Farmer, $2,000 Real estate Value, $1,000 Personal estate value, b: KY

1880 Census
James M. Pitts stated his father was born in KY and mother born in TN. Also, in this census James and Sarah had living with them a brother and two sisters of Sarah Elizabeth's: Andrew Jackson Pitts, age 23; Mary C., age 20, Mahala age 17. (their mother died in 1864 and their father married Elender Payne. Young Mimms was killed by a run-away team in 1871. James Monroe and Elizabeth seperated sometime soon afterwards 1880 and James Monroe married Mary C. Pitts, his sister-in-law.
1900 Green Twp., Hickory Co., MO Census, vol. 38, e.d. 96, sheet 14, line 98
James W. Pitts, white, b: Oct 1843, age 56, in KY
Mary C. Pitts, wife, b: May 1860, age 40, in MO
Gentry Pitts, son, b: June 1890, age 9, in MO

your message:

Mary Ingram: I received your requested edits for Mary Ingram at the Pittsburg Cemetery in Missouri. I saw her spouse listed as Monroe Pitts. But, on her Missouri Death Certificate her father is listed as J (?) M. Pitts born Tennessee and mother as unknown. Is the Monroe Pitts her father rather than her spouse? She was born in 1861 (Mo death record shows 1860) and Monroe Pitts has a Civil War Tombstone so he would be old enough in 1860-1861 to be her father. I will be happy to accept the edits but I would like to be sure of the information.
Thank you. Floydene
