RE: Mamie Edna Burns Taylor # 45340761
Hi again:
Sorry it's taken so long for me to get back to you, I got lost on another branch of my research for awhile. It's very easy to get distracted onto another branch. I have been looking at Crawford Leon Gillen Sr. again and there is a lady with a Gillen tree on I have been commucnicating with and she has Crawford's 2nd wife as a Mamey Leora Gillen and her father was Roy C. Skinner, her mother Sarah Trosel, DOB 3-22-1907 born in Wisconsin, DOD 6-30-1976 Polk, TX (all this info is from this lady's death cert.). I work really hard at having correct info in my tree and this info she has does not match your Aunt Mamie. Do you know for sure that your Aunt Mamie was married to a Crawford Gillen, she said so?, her family members told you and they met him?, anything like that? I have a very strong feeling in my gut your info is correct (& I usually go with my 1st gut instinct)but I need verification before I add your info to my tree. Can you please tell me how you know about her marriage to Crawford??? Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.

I have been researching the Corher, Hubbard, etc. Family and have noticed on several occasions you have created entries that are already in place causing confusion. I would appreciate it if you would include your bio information in the entries that exist by your entries by 2+ years. I will give you a little time to straighten out this mess. If you continue in this fashion you will be reported to findagrave and they are not someone you want to mess with. They have the power to delete not only your entries but also discontinue your service. Please take steps to combine your good work with the original entry. OLD BURNET CEMETERY and Burnet City Cemetery exist. Ancestry and Uswebgen recognize Old Burnet Cemetery and Burnet City Cemetery. Thank you.

Mamie Edna Burns
I am researching Crawford L. Gillen. There seems to be some confusion. I see that your Mamie was married to a Crawford L. Gillen who died in 1962.
I am finding 2 wives for Crawford L. Gillen. Not sure if there were possibly 2 different Crawford L. Gillen's both from Mississippi or what? I also have found him married to a Lula B. Renfrow and they had 2 children. So how is this possible? Any insights or family info you have could possibly help me solve this puzzle. I see several conflicting records on in different family trees I see they have listed him married to Lula with 2 kids and then a 2nd spouse Mamey, but if your Mamie was his widow was she his 2nd wife? or a different Crawford altogether. Help????
I have also seen 2 different middle names for him Leon or Lazarus, any ideas/Info on this???

Death Date for Samuel Smith
I am completing an SRT application for my husband Bill. Do you have proof information for Samuel's death date? Is there a bible record?

Thanks for your help,

duplicate cemetery
Someone has created a duplicate cemetery called "Mission Burial Park North" and unfortunately you have placed your memorial in the duplicate instead of the "original" that has thousands of memorials. In order to get your memorial proper visibility suggest you "move" the memorial over to the other MBP-North cemetery in Find-A-Grave.
