My name is Janice Kay Wigley-Beckham...the old Cedar Valley Cemetery, is our Family Cemetery. A special thanks to Frank Irons. My Mom's Jackson family has lived out in Cedar Valley for over a Hundred years (Abt. 1890).I lived there until I was 11 years old. My parents moved to California and they moved back to Texas in 1994...to retire. I have stayed in California with my small family. My only son Sean Rounsaville passed away in 1999, at the age of 29, he left two daughters and my daughter has 2 sons.

I don't think I've responded to your email of last month. I don't check my Find A Grave email very often.
But, I'm not sure where I got the 'Maiden Name' of 'Christopher'.I probably got it from another tree.
What I have is; Jane 'Jenny' Christopher 1814-1879.
Daughter of Robert Christopher 1790-1872 and Jane Grey 1791-1867.
Robert Christopher 1790-1872 was the son of Richard Christopher 1764-1849 and Ann Gibson 1760-1841.
Jane Grey was the daughter of Robert Grey 1769- and Dorothy Jane Addison 1774-
Jenny's parents and grand parents on both sides were from England.
I do not have any documents that show the 'Christopher' name. IE.. birth certs, death certs, or Census.
My ancestry.com membership dos not include Europe, so I cannot search records for England.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want more information, please email me direct. I can then attach documents, and insert screen captures of my tree. emailing through find a grave limits me to text only.
Hopefully the above information is useful to you.
'Jenny' is near the end of s tree branch of some of my 8th cousins.

You might want to look at the response I received from Robert Pirtle on my home page. He indicates that he is one of the grandsons of "Sintha Angeline McDaniel Pirtle." He also states that "Sintha" is her first name and it is definitely not "Cynthia." So, I that pretty much settles that.
The 2 ladies on the above indicated memorials appear to be the exact same person, although the memorial you have shows a different spelling for her first name.
The headstone photo on your memorial, shows her name as "Sinthy A. Pirtle." Census records between 1880 & 1930, respectively show her name as "Angeline," "Synthia," "Cynthia," "Angelina," and "Smithy M." On the other hand, her Death Certificate & the Texas Death Index, both show her name as "Cynthia A." I believe the Death documents are more correct and that you are also correct on her first name. However, I believe her full name is "Cynthia Angeline McDaniel Pirtle" with maiden name "McDaniel" and nickname of "Sinthy."
Would you consider conferring with the individual owing the other memorial and asking the folks at Findagrave to merge these two memorials. The other memorial shows an earlier date, so I would guess the other memorial has seniority.
I am sending a similar note to Robert Pirtle (#47271270), the owner of the other memorial.
Carberrys Jan, Thanks for the transfers! I appreciate it. Who are your cousins that are related to Cora and John E? They must be my cousins as well, unless they came thru Cora's first marriage. I am always up for meeting new cousins.
