This verse came from the grave marker of a relative who died in 1900 in Warrenton, MO.

"Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God" - Matthew 5:8

My FAG activities are primarily with the Mitchell, Waller, Wells, Cox and Wilson families and their relatives.

Here is a poem from the Remembrance Card of David Waller Mitchell, my great grandfather who died on October 12, 1909.

He served as a Private in the Confederate Army from Pittsylvania County, VA and survived Pickett's Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg in PA.

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God in his wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love had given,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in heaven.

Re: Abihu Arnn Mem #109077642
Hello Jack -- if it is of interest, Abihu Aaron/Arnn was the grandson of the family patriarch Abraham Aaron, Sr and unnamed wife. Abraham was born in Lancaster County PA about 1732/33. He and family moved to Pittsylvania County, VA where he was first enumerated in 1767. Abihu's father George Washington Aaron, Sr as well as my ancestor Isaac Aaron, Sr both changed the spelling of their surname to ARNN from Aaron for whatever reason. Many of George's descendants did not adopt the spelling and retained the original Aaron spelling. Some later descendants can be found with the surname Aarons, Aron, Arons. I am unaware of any of the descendants of Isaac Aaron/Arnn, Sr who did not retain the Arnn spelling.

Abihu and his 1st cousin [son of Isaac] Berryman Arnn, Sr [b 1810]married sisters. As you have provided -- Margaret Reynolds Blair was Abihu's wife. Berryman married Joanna Amanda Blair; they were my ggrandparents. Abihu and Berryman and families traveled to AR after several years in the Obion/Henry counties area of TN.

Nick Karalis
Dear Jack,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division.

According to the History of the 89th Division, Private Karalis was wounded (degree undetermined) on the last day of WWI (11/11/1918).

I am trying to find the graves of as many members of the above mentioned army unit as I can. I am hoping you might know whether Nick Karalis was a member of this unit. If he was a WWI veteran, he would be eligible for a gravestone. I see he is missing one.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson

I note you have his birth as 1755 and his death as 1920 when it should be 1820.

Walker Fitts Memorial# 135729063
I see you have info on my 2x Great Grandfather Walker Fitts of Georgia. Could you tell me what documents you have found giving his place and date of his birth? Why post his name on find a grave unless there is a cemetery or grave marker showing the place he was buried? Where did you get the information on the Fitts Family?

Thanks for any help.

Hi Jack, another member here notified me that I had a duplicate memorial for these people that you already had memorials up for. Only difference is that you did not have a cemetery listed for them. They are resting in Floral Hills Memory Garden in Danville, Virginia. I posted the photo I took of their marker to your memorials and removed mine as once again, mine were duplicates.

Best regards,
