RE: Memorial 122664459 yes, I know. I added the photo of the stone at Bull Swamp because, for some reason, Willie was not mentioned as a spouse in her obituary. Flossie was married to him at the time of his death. Willie was also (1st) married to Gladys Cooper, my cousin. Thanks!

John McDonald Cynthia, I wrote an explanation about why I rejected your correction but I guess you didnt see it. John McDonald was my husbands 2x great grandfather. As far as the family are concerned, his name was McDonald. His third wife or her son were the ones responsible for the spelling on his tombstone. I met many of his grandchildren (the last died in 2013) and they said their Mama spelled her maiden name McDonald. I have his own handwriting with it spelled McDonald. That is why i will not change his name to reflect what is on his stone.
RE: Carson A. Keel Thank you for the info Cynthia. Me and my sister plan on going to the reunion next year. My Great grandfather and his brother were married to two of the Howell sisters. I have been in touch with John and will ask him about contacting that lady. Thank you very much Ronald Keel.
RE: Janie Ruth Baughman Smith Hi Cynthia! It doesn't look like she is. But sometime the family doesn't get the engraving done. Someone else made the page. I just supplied the pic when it was requested for her and or her husband.
Janie Ruth Baughman Smith Hi! I hope you are well and nicely recuperated! I have someone asking for a pic of her stone and hoping for a death date. But sadly, the stone has not been engraved. Do you know when she died?
