RE: Jecova E Penrod Kell
I believe she is on my great aunt's side - Olive Skidmore - the Vance's were her side of the family - she married my great uncle John Edward Scott. Let me pull that file and I'll get back to you.

RE: Howard James Kell
In the future, when requesting transfers, please use the Edit tab on the memorial you want transferred and select the "Suggest any other correction or addition" link and request the transfer. Please remember to include your Find A Grave member ID. This saves the person you are requesting the transfer several steps.
