|Jesse R. Mitchell||RE: Obituaries|
I am working on the 1960-1969 and am in the "J" going down the alphabet but have done some of the ones that were tied into my family already from all three 10 year cycles. As you will see when you get them there are 1000's of them.
I was told by someone that the guy found them in a truck and finally decided to post them on the net but was unclear as to permission, but as I told the person relaying this to me if it's on the net as far as I am concerned it public records. Besides how about those OBITS from the funeral homes and newspapers (which by the way was supplied to the newspaper's by the funeral homes). You can always copy and eliminate the newspaper name, but may have to add a year on date of death otherwise there will not be a year of death as it is in the newspaper headline but not in the body of the OBIT.
Good luck and yes I could use the help.

|Cardinals Fan||RE: Bessie Campbell|
LOL!!! I'm surprised you didn't ask me to transfer it back after you discovered I'm St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. Especially after last years wildcard game for the playoffs we robbed from you guys. That's was tough. Me and many St. Louis fans always loved Chipper Jones. Great player and leader. I was at his last game at Busch stadium here before his retirement. He got a standing ovation from our fans that lasted minutes. Really emotional and neat to see.
Thank you so much for the transfer. I hope I never need a transfer from a Cubs fan. I don't think they'd be as kind as you.
|Tony Bryant||RE: Ref: Bessie Robinson|
No I didn't personally know Diddly, she is my sister-in-law's aunt. I went to school with some of the Robinson family but I don't remember Barbara Jean, the name I've heard, at family gatherings I'm sure, but can't put a face to her. I attended Tappahannock High until it closed in 1970 then went on to Essex High. I've been in NC since 82 so I've also lost touch with most of the people I went to school with. If I can think of it I'll asked about Barbara and see if I can find out when she was born and let you know.
Hey Mary Jo
All your info is correct that you mentioned in your message. I am married to Richard and Earlie McCall's son Dewayne. So, Flossie was my husband's aunt. I am not the sister, Wanda McCall Holtzhauser. Wanda continues to live in Troy, Ill.
Dewayne and his brother, Thomas, went to Flossie's funeral in 1981. I don't have much on the McCall/Creasy side of the family. Thanks to you, my husband learned a lot about his family thru your entries. It reminded him of people and events that he had long forgotten. He just saw the picture of Mrs. (Earlie Creasy) McCall on your site, he said he had never seen it before.
The continued living children of Mr. and Mrs. McCall are Richard (Junior), Ima Lee, Dewayne, Thomas, Milburn and Wanda.

|Deb Carlton||George Washington Singleton|
Hi Ms Mary Jo, George Washington Singleton is my great great grandfather. His daughter Arbie Singleton is my great grandmother. Your info on his children is correct, I was wondering if you remember where you got this info from. Are we related, is this your family tree also? I also have been researching for a couple of years. I have info on Maranda, Lemuel Washington, and Arbie if you need or want this. I live in Dyer County Tennessee, I have photo's of the cemeteries where they are buried if you need them. And who they married and their children. Except for Cintha I have not been able to find her. My mom's 89 year old cousin says she moved to another state, Missouri she thinks and died young, I have yet to find anything on her. Even if this is not your family I really appreciate your adding this info to Find A Grave. I have never been to Decatur County Tennessee and I would not have known where to look if not for you. Please message with any info you have. Thanks Deb
|Melissa Wilkerson||Julian Jones|
I see in a message to another member that you are related to Julian Ward Jones. It appears that we are cousins. Julian Ward Jones, Sr. was my grandfather. My mother was his daughter Dorothy Irene. I know very little about him or his family so seeing your message was amazing. I would love to learn more about him.
|Jim Longest||RE: Greenstreet|
Dorothy Beatrice Greenstreet Smith is/was my Grand-Aunt, being the sister of my Grandmother, Loula Ellen Greenstreet Prince. I can't say just how Robert Warren is connected to my family, but I am sure it is there somewhere. Lillie Bee is actually related by marriage to my Watkins Family relatives. And My father, Robert Muscoe Longest always said that John Russell Harper, Otha Watkins Harper's son, was our cousin. I don't know how, but in my research of my ancestry/family history, I've learned not to go against Father. He was a gifted oral Family Historian. Time and time again my research has confirmed what he said.
