Hi Willa Mae,

I am researching the Griffins through Jesse and before. I was interested in learning more of what you have.

See findagrave memorial 28830313 for Wade G "Dock" Griffin. Do you know if Jesse H and Sarah Brookes Griffin was his parents?

My Uncle was Tilmon Griffin from Searcy County, Arkansas. He married my dad's sister, Lavina Rea. I have not made the connection yet.

RE: Thank u
Willa Mae: You're welcome regarding aunt MOlly. I looked for the Points grave but did not find it. It's a farily large cemetery and there are many sections down in the weeds and near a stream that I did not venture into but after things dry out a bit here I will look again.

Points at Leslie Cemetery
It was starting to get hot and I did not go all of the way through the cemetery. However, I did find the one stone which I posted to "Baby Points" and "Gracie Points". Once I found this stone, I looked very closely in the vicinity and found no more "Points".

The stone was enscribed as follows:

Jan 31 1892

Gracie Lillian
July 1 1893
Sept 23 1893

Feb 5 1898
Feb 9 1898

AAZ ML Points

I suspect that this is the only stone for the Points children. I am confident that this stone was added sometime later. There were other field stones in the area which probably marked the actual graves, but it would be impossible to determine which was which. I would guess that when the stone was added it was based on the memory of an individual who might have not remembered correctly.

Tashia Foster ~ Duffield Cemetery
Hi, Brave Dave and I are seeking little Tashia's grave to complete your request for a picture. We understand she is buried with her grandmother but we don't know her grandmother's name. Could you help us with this? Thanks and God bless. Roberta and Brave Dave, my grandson

Rees Shelby
Dear Willa Mae, you are no doubt correct. I have Rees Shelby in Yetke & Macedonia cemeteries and neither are correct. I will remove both of them so that you might put up the correct information. Thanks, Barbara

New Marker Earl Thorpe
Hi Willa:

I was at Citizen's Cemetery in Flagstaff, Arizona yesterday and they had recently set the new grave marker for Earl Thorpe.

I've posted the photo on his memorial here.
