Hi, thanks for adding my grandmother, Esther H. Pritchett on the Nathan Anderson Memorial Cemetery list. Could you correct her birth date? On the stone, it shows July 11, 1904 instead of the 14th. If you'd rather, you may transfer management of this memorial to me.

Thanks! dkp (Southern Muse)

Hi, and thanks for the work on Nathan Anderson in Ringgold.

If you are not related, would you mind transferring the following:

Millie Florence Hyatt Helton (#53681878)

Florence was my grand aunt.

Thanks, Caryn

Aults in Tunnel Hill

The Aults are family of mine (Margie was the first wife of my grandmother's father, so Edwin and Lois would be her half siblings). I was wondering if you mind if your pictures are used on Ancestry? I would like to add them to my tree if not.

Also wondering if you have run across other Aults there?

William and Artie White
Doug, next time you are near New Hope Cemetery in Tunnel Hill can you check with the cemetery office or church and see if William White, died 9 Jan 1927 and his wife Artie White, died 14 Jun 1955 are located there. Her obituary indicates she is at New Hope Cemetery but I cannot locate or verify. No rush. Thanks in advance.

RE: Seth Allison
My sincerest thanks to you for this!
I really do appreciate it. I was in Cummings, Ga in late May this year and planned to go to Rossville areas and do family history, but word had it that the tornadoe that had gone through there just prior to my trip had destroyed most everything there. I hope to try again in the Spring of 2012. The church has no documentation of her burial there, either. I have two obituraries that say she is, along with a letter from her daughter to my great grandmother, (who married her son, Carl Thayer Allison)stating the same burial place for Alice and Seth.
It's a mystery, then. She may not have had a marker, but I can't imagine why, with raising so many children and stepchildren from Seth's previous marriage, (he was widowed).
It's really a shame that she cannot be found. I can't find her father, either. Only one of her sisters and one brother's grave can be located.
