I notice that on November 24th, you created the above memorial at the Downing Cemetery in Downing, Missouri. Can you please explain the reason for this post? This cemetery has been entirely documented and photographed. No Downing names are found in this cemetery. If this is in error would you please delete the entry.

Hello, I wonder if you have seen the grave of Stephen and Elizabeth in the Old Craft Cemetery.
If so, do you know if there are any other Howard's nearby? Appreciate any information. Thank you.

In case you were wondering, the source on those edits I have put in (mainly plot numbers) -- is the book "Our People And Where They Rest: A Visit to 104 Old Cemeteries in Eastern Oklahoma," James W. Tyner, Maxine Tyner and Alice Tyner Timmons, American Indian Institute, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK. 1970-1985, (Library of Congress No. QE99-C5-T97) There wasn't a place for me to put that in the edit form.

Thanks for all your help! Best wishes.

RE: William Harrison Smith - Find A Grave Memorial# 24310936
William Harrison Smith is in my direct ancestry and I was doing a little research on the Smith family this week and obtained two significant documents. They are William's Civil War service records and his Confederate pension application. In both documents, William states that he was born in Wise County, Virginia. In the latter document, he states that he came to Kentucky in 1850. I believe that Virginia is likely to be accurate as his birth place however, it is important to note that Wise County, Virginia was formed in 1856 from Lee, Russell, and Scott Counties (VA) which is after the date he claimed to have moved to Kentucky. William enlisted in the Civil War at Jackson in Breathitt County, Kentucky on September 20th, 1862 and received a debilitating gun shot wound in his left shoulder exactly one year later at the Battle of Chickamauga in Georgia. It would appear that he spent much of the rest of the war in Georgia hospitals.
I have uploaded both documents to William's page at my web site for anyone who is interested,

Hope all is well
Hey Paul,

Did you get my email a few days ago? I haven't heard from you and it has me concerned.

I wrote to you about some of your Craft memorials I like to see link-up, if possible.

If you have a chance, please get in touch with me. If for anything, just to let me know everything is alright.

James Davis Johnston photo
Just a thank you for being able to view the photo you posted of J.D. Johnston & Rebecca Goad.
James mother, Susannah M. Southern, is my 3x great grandmothers no great connection but I often wondered how Susannah ended up in Ky. and Sarah Southern Bolton ended up in Iowa. You think about the distance families lived apart and probably never saw one another again and the conflict when the Civil War began and family fought on both sides. Thanks again.."if" you have this photo close at hand could you scan it and email it to me [if you dont' mind]..would like to included it in my family history but it becomes very grainy when I tried to save

William Craft at Higgins Cem
Mr. Downing; how you doing today?

I was wondering if you could transfer William Craft to me (21337373), thats if he's not related to you.

I'm a descendant of Daniel & Idress Craft, and I've been working on locating and linking up their family on here on findagrave. I have found most of the members, and like to link up William to help finish the family group.

Any help you could give me will this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time, and for putting William in the system.
