RE: Claude A. McGinnis, Jr.
Thank you so much for the reply and additional information. However, I'm still unsure if they are one and the same...Claude and Rebecca married in 1927 in Atlanta. Rebecca came from a very prominent family in Florence, AL. She and Claude had a high social standing based on what I read in the old newspapers. They were still living in Fulton county (Atlanta area), Georgia in 1940 with their 3 children: Claude Augustus the III, Mary and Eleanor.

As I mentioned previously, there are several "Claude Augustus McGinnis" in the McGinnis family. I think one was a professional baseball player.

Such a puzzle! :-)

There is a Correct listing for this cemetery

Catherine Back, wife of John Carson Back
I think we went through this before, and basically agreed to disagree on Catherine's last name. I used as my reference an entry on who cited as her source: Family Group Sheet for Solomon & Jency Fields Back
Author: Carolyn Snider
Publication: Sep. 30, 2001
Note: Various sources for the information are cited.

Out of all of the entries on rootsweb, this was the only one I found with a source citation.

In doing a review today, I found another source citation - Two excellent books about the Bach (Back) Family and related families-- "We Came From Thuringia: Genealogy of the Bach Family in Breathitt County, Kentucky," and "The Bach (Back) Family in Southeastern Kentucky." Both are available at www.BachGenealogy. SOURCE MATERIALS.

On the couple of people who listed Catherine's name as Day, there was no source citation.

Claude A. McGinnis, Jr.
I am writing in regards to memorial #44625421 for Claude A. McGinnis, Jr. I am seeking information on a person of the same name (Claude Agustus McGinnis, Jr. or II, birth date year and death date year BUT he lived in the Atlanta, GA area. His wife was Rebecca Ashcraft McGinnis. He was born in Atlanta, GA, Jan. 16. 1900 and died in 1965. Rebecca was born April 4, 1904 in Lauderdale county, Alabama. They had 3 children: Claude A. McGinnis III, Mary and Eleanor. I have found no information that suggests they moved from Georgia. Rebecca graduated from a college in Georgia after her marriage and was active in the Atlanta society.

I am wondering if your Claude A. McGinnis is your kin, and if so, if you have any additional information. There are several McGinnis men named "Claude" thus, I am stumped!

Thank you in advance for any information you might have or any of your Find A Grave friends who read this might have.

RE: Robert H Swartz
The headstone inscription says DOB is May 1, 1911.
The death certificate is unclear. (Someone has written "Don't know" in the space over the date.)

Where are you getting the May 11 date from?
