I didn't notice the period after Archibald either. No worries, I removed it. Thanks for the information!

Randell, I have a copy of her death certificate and it states she was buried in Atlanta Cemetery, Atlanta, Cass Co., Texas.

I am not sure about this information. I have known death certificates to be wrong.

Hi Randall, You must have got a message from Ancestry about my DNA results, we are 4th cousins. I contacted you several years ago about the Tarin family. Juana Leal was also my 3rd great grandmother, Salome Francisca Tarin was my great grandmother, her son Jesus Tarin Gomez was my grandfather. Thanks for all the info you have given me.

Thomas Robert Kemp
Hello Randal. Do you have any information on the family of Thomas Robert Kemp? Thomas married into my Rogers family. His wife is Katherine Eliza Jane Rogers daughter of Thomas Jefferson Rogers from Mokane Mo. Their children are Alice Pauline Kemp and Ethel Omega Kemp (1900-1996). I see Alice has a page on this site, do you know if there is a page for Thomas' wife Katherine. The information I have says they are all buried in Laurel Land Cemetery in Dallas Texas. Thanks in advance for your help.

RE: Hazel Blevins

I have added the info to Hazel. Thank you for your persistence. (Not a pest) Lol
I did a search after adding it and it comes up as no cemetery. However it does show up in the burial info on her memorial.

Hazel Blevins
Hello Randell,

I have received two separate sac's from you concerning Hazel. For the life of me, I can't figure out what you want me to change. I have never had Hazel in a cemetery as your first sac would suggest:

Find A Grave contributor Randell Tarin has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Hazel Blevins.

Their suggestion:
I messaged the cemetery where her husband was buried and they confirmed that not only is she not buried there, the family sold the empty plot. There was also a very non-specific note that she had been buried "elsewhere".

As you must know, I have her as burial unknown. The information came from the newspaper that published her obituary. Then today, you sent this SAC. Please tell me what you would like me to do with this info:

Their suggestion:
I discovered the following information about Mrs. Blevins from the funeral home.

Dear Randell,

I found Mrs. Blevin's death record. She was a cremation. There was not an internment handled through us. Her son Wynn handled all of the arrangements. You may be able to ask him where she was inurned or scattered.

Please let me know if we can be of further assistance.

Normally I am not this much of a block head, but for some reason I do not know what it is for sure you want me to add/take away from her memorial. As I said before, she has never been listed in a cemetery. Do you want me to add that she was cremated? That there was no interment? Do you want your notes added to the obit? Please inform me of your desire for Hazel.

Thank you,

Thank you for noticing the duplicate. I wrote the other contributor and told them about theirs being a duplicate of mine. I hope they will move the info to my page unless they are directly related; in which case, I will transfer to them :)

Hi Randell,

Just wondering if you are related to this individual and if you are aware of her historical significance? She was recognized by the State of Alabama as a heroine of the civil war. I can send you the story if you'd like to include it in the bio section of her memorial? Just let me know. Its a fascinating story.

Best regards
