Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy doing Genealogy, and always seaching for any and all relations of our families. I started doing this about 12-14 years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it, meeting new relatives, and visiting many of the cemeteries of East Texas. I joined Find a grave about 7 years ago, and it has been a tremendious help in my family searches.

((For transfers please Do NOT EMAIL ME!!!, Use the EDIT TAB on the top right corner of the memorial and 5th option to request all transfers, within FIND A GRAVE Guide Lines.)) IF YOU ARE NOT RELATED, PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR A TRANSFER.

((Also I will not respond to info that is sent by emails to be put on a memorial any longer, you need to use the EDIT tabs to send that info. All Emails will be deleted.))

Mary E. Hitt
Hello, Bonnie. I've been looking into my Hitt family members, lately. I ran across Alfred V. Hitt, and his marriage to an apparent cousin, Mary E. Hitt.

My question is, in regards to carrying her last name on the memorial as "Pool," instead of "Hitt?" Her marriage to James Pool lasted for a couple of years, from August 1865 until his death in 1867. She married Alf in about 1872, and bore all his children, passing in 1901. As awkward as it might seem, shouldn't her memorial be carried as "Hitt" since that was her last husband, and it is on her marker?

I can't prove it very well, but I think her middle name was Emma. I gathered that off of her son, Clifton's D/C. If that is true, it also says that her maiden name was Harris. I leave that up to you, of course. You have noted that Mary was the daughter of Lazarus and Ruth Hitt. I suspect you are correct from what I've seen. I'll dig out some records, soon.

Thanks for all your good work. This is a fun hobby, isn't it? regards, pete

No reply on transfer requests.
Hi Bonnie, I have sent transfer requests but I don't know if they are going through. I sent one in September and another in October. If you are related and do not wish to transfer, I completely understand. Can you please send me a message to let me know either way so I can stop requesting? #8993455 & #8993450
Thank you so much,
Cher Cunningham

Margareta Overton - Memorial# 58433268 - Follow Up
Bonnie, I'm just following up on the message below which I left for you back in October. Can you contact me when you have a moment? My email address is jor.el1964@yahoo.com.

Thanks,

Joel

Message from October 15th:

Bonnie, hello. It looks like you created this memorial back in 2010. Since you have exact dates for birth and death in the memorial, do you know whether there is an actual headstone in this cemetery (Middleburg Cemetery, Hardeman County, TN) for Margareta, containing this information? If not, do you know where you got the information for her birth and death dates?

Also, you have the following note in the memorial: "Wife of E.H. Overton". Again, I assume this information is coming from a headstone. Can you confirm that?

I believe Margareta Overton may be my 3rd great grandmother, and am trying to piece together information to confirm this. Do you happen to have any other information relating to her? Are you one of her descendants by chance?

Thanks in advance for your help!

RE: death certifices
Hi Bonnie, I'm sorry about this confusion. I sometimes post death certificates without looking to see if the manager of the memorial does not allow it. I just don't have any idea of the cemetery or the person's name. I remember working on the Choate family, but looked and didn't see anything, unless I missed it. Maybe you will run across it in the near future and then can send the memorial number. I will continue to look to see if any other names jump out at me.
