The name Slinker is most likely correct. I had seen that name before in a couple of places. One was the LDS website which probably got the information from the same marriage record you found. I am glad you found it.
|Judy Gautier||Gravestone of Edward Long CSA with 18th TX Cavalry|
Edward Long's Grave on Find A Grave
The Eighteenth Texas Cavalry, also known as Darnell's Cavalry Regiment, was organized at Dallas, Texas, on March 15, 1862.
If the Edward Long described on this stone died in 1859, before the Civil War began, I don't see how this could be the same person as Edward the son of John Long.
Please enlighten me. Edward Long is in our direct line, too and we have been trying to make some headway with info on him and his wife.
Thanks so much. Judy Gautier
|Rebecca Wright||James Rankin Goodall|
Thanks for responding...I have the info about their marriage, etc. I wrote a bio on Louisa's memorial page if you want to check it out!Mem.#28488726. There was a family story that James had been shot, or something like that, but I've never been able to confirm or deny the story, so it remains a mystery as to his early death.
If I ever do find any further info on James , I'll be sure and let you know!
|Rebecca Wright||RE: Louisa M. Harrison|
Thank you for adding the link, I appreciate it. I was wondering if you have any information about James Rankin Goodall? I have been working on my family history for many years and have never found any information about why he died so young, at just 25. He and Louisa had only been married a little over a year.
Hi Fred I'm a descendant of Dora Bell Foster-Ashley. Cora Fosters sister. I found there father. Elisha Foster in Carter Memorial Cemetery. #45637722. Would you add a link from Cora to her father. I don't know if there mother is there. I can't find a record for her. Thanks. Jo Townsend-Ashley.

We are trying to locate a member of the Boren family to purchase vacant grave plots. Your name appeared on her sheet. Parents were A.U. Boren and Josie Beard Boren. Can you help?? Wanda Robinson Wandar1@windstream.net Thanks
|Christine Morrill||Daniel and Abial Downs|
I would love to speak with you about the Downs genealogy of Tamworth New Hampshire and surrounding area.
I have been on the search of the parents of Daniel and Abial Downs.
Would you be so kind to contact me at email@example.com.
I along with the assistance or Fred Boyle, Genealogist, have confirm Daniel and Abial as brothers. It appears by land deeds that either a Moses or Aaron Downs were their father(?).
Thank you so much
Warm Regards Christine

I am updating the listings and photos for this cemetery. I just uploaded some pics for your King memorials there. If you have other memorials in this cemetery, I will probably be getting to those over the next few weeks.

Fred, you might want to check the spelling of this man's last name.
