Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 5th generation Floridian. Born in Lakeland, Polk, FL, grew up in or around Lakeland, Plant City, Dover and Tampa.
Started doing genealogy in 1972.
Genealogy is an ongoing journey. My husband asks "when will you be done with that" and I tell him "when I'm lying in my grave". Now have my oldest granddaughter interested, so she will carry on.
My main lines are Cumbie, Gauldin, Williams, Ellison, Platt, Polk, Roberts,and Gornto, but have info on many names having over 13,000 names listed in my files.

Julius Latil (1862-1933)
I was interested to know your interest in Julius Latil & his wife, Hasseltine CUMBIL Latil. Hasseltine is buried in Magnolia cemetery, Lot 73, Sec. 4 along with her husband (Find-A-Grave memorial #8281882).

I am related to Julius Latil by his mother Mary Elizabeth Korwin/Corwin/Jaholkowski. Mary Elizabeth is the sister to my 2nd great-grandmother, Adelaide Adele Valda KORWIN Widney.

I would be delighted to share my family history notes with you.

Thank you for letting me know about the mistake. I've fixed it. My name is also Betty, and I lived in Fla. until I graduated high school.

Hi Betty,
I know the stone says 1860,but death records say that he died 22 Oct 1861 in Madison County, FL.
As you can see from the stone, there was not birth date given and the age at death was about 60 years. I added the dates that have been in the family tree for a long time, and from death record. I will add a note that the stone says 1860.

Nathan was my 3rd Great grandfather.

RE: 35556920
Betty - I rechecked the genealogy on this against census records and info. on, and it is correct. Some researchers do show his father as Elijah Edward Dowling Gornto or Elijah "Edward" Dowling Gornto. The cemetery memorial for Elijah mistakenly has him listed as a "Jr." when his tombstone shows he was a "Sr." As you can see from the tombstone photo on Find A Grave Edward is shown as "Jr." I would suggest that Edward Jr. may actually have been Elijah Edward Dowling Gornto Jr., but he never used the Elijah, but I don't have any facts to back that up. So to sum up, the memorial is OK as shown, although I did request a change on his father's name to "Sr." instead of "Jr." Best regards - Bill C.

I would be glad to transfer any graves you would care to maintain. Unfortunately, I cannot invest much time into maintaining much of anything concerning Find-a-Grave. Sincerely Yours

If you are asking me to make a change or addition to a memorial that I manage, you need to go to that memorial and click on the Edit tab (upper right.) Choose the last of the six options, "Send Another Correction,") and use the email form to send me information as to whatever it is you'd like me to do to the memorial. If you have sources, please include them.

Thanks, Ellen

If you're asking me to make a parental link, please do so through the Edit tab on the child's memorial. Choose the last option ("Send Another Correction.") That way, I'll have the link to the memorial that I manage.

In the email, please also include the link (not just the memorial number) of the mother's memorial, and please explain your sources for believing the relationship to have existed.

Thanks, Ellen
