Emmy Ellington Elkins of Caddo Gap
Dear Sandra,

So sorry about your computer crash! I've had that happen twice in 28 yrs. & was heart-sick. Every time I now use my computer, I back-it-up with a recovery device called "Click Free" (it stores more than a normal thumb drive can).

My mom & her sisters actually knew their grandpa, Nathaniel Ellington (Emmy's brother), as they were raised for many years @ Caddo Gap before moving to NE TX as youngsters.

Nathaniel was a brother to your ancestor & to Emmy. Emmy was spoken-of highly by my mom's Grandpa Nathaniel. Emmy died-way-before they came along (or even their dad was born). But, their Grandpa Nathaniel told them how wonderful Emmy was & gave her photo to my mom (as she was the youngest granddaughter & then I received it after my mom's death).

Mom's Grandpa Nathaniel Ellington told her that "Emmy had 1 child who was named Fernando" who stayed @ Caddo Gap "after" Emmy's widowed husband moved to Fannin Co. in NE TX (which is where my mom's own family moved many years later). THIS is where I got the 1 child for Emmy! Grandpa Nathaniel told my mom that his nephew Fernando had his own big family; & he said that they were a comfort to him when my mom's family left Caddo Gap for NE TX.

I tried to contact the man who has Emmy's memorial without success. He had Son Fernando's Children listed & linked as Emmy's. After many many months, find-a-grave listed this contributor as inactive. Then, poof!...I checked on Emmy one day; & that contributor had deleted those grandchildren & added: a few words, capital letters, & exclamation marks to a message I had left for him & posted it as an inscription.

I'm always happy to get clarity on ancestors & am fallible & happy to correct any errors that I have made...because the whole point is to leave an accurate family history, right?

So, thank you for your information which is great...but I can't change Emmy's memorial information nor what the guy has listed on that page.

Have you made a memorial for your ancestor who is Emmy's brother? I Love it when families are linked to one another!

Best to you,
Lynda.
