|Feel free to use any of my photos in any way that you wish, particularly the older ones. My sole purpose in posting them is to share them with those who want them and to preserve them for posterity, just as many of these once were gifts which others (long dead, for the most) generously shared with me. History is not for hoarding or profit but for passing on.|

|Cat Houchins||Mary Elizabeth Selvage/Selvidge|
I have connected Mary Elizabeth to her parents as you requested. Thank you for providing me with the information.
Could you please tell me if your WIER's are linked to any of the Joseph N.; Richard F.; of Maryland. My mother's grandmother was a Wier, who married a Dawson of Anne Arundel County,MD. God Bless and have a great day! Ruth Dawson-Crawford
|Martha Jean Holmes Saint Grimes||Leroy Walls|
Thank you so much for the links on his Mom & Dad. I have added them to his memorial and I agree the links are so helpful. Have a good rest of the day.
|Scott Plummer||Harry Clow Jr|
I did take photos of the markers for Harry Clow Jr and Leonore. Did you want to set up photo requests?
There were also some Clows with the Hamill family nearby... I will set up memorials for them when I get a chance. Not sure how they fit in with your Clows.
|Scott Plummer||RE: Clow grave markers|
My pleasure. I saw the McNally monument and thought I would take a look...
Sorry the light wasn't better when I took the photos. The Clows are in the McNally family plot. I also added photos for 2 of their children.
Have a good day.
|Nancy Cornelius||Joseph Wheeler at Crestview|
I took pictures of his wife's stone also. I did find a JT and Ila Walls stones next to Joseph. I did not post pictures of Ila because she did not have death dates.
|Terri Baker||Smelley Cemetery|
Thank you so much for posting the information about the Smelley Cemetery where Bridgers Smelley and his wife Carolyn are buried in Talladega County, Alabama. The map you posted is also very interesting. I'm a descendant and was very happy to find this info posted. Thanks again!
|S.R.F.||RE: James Allen Barnes|
Hmmmm.... My James Allen Barnes was born Nov 1886 in Ireland to John James Barrins, whose name changed to Barnes when he came to America. His mother was Mary A Golden, my great-grand aunt. So, either people are attaching the wrong spouse to my James Allen (that being Kathryn Spurgeon), or they are the same person.
[Now, you might not believe this, but I have other relatives in our tree who were born in Ireland, but consistently told the Census-takers that they were born in the US! It might have been a Census error, or maybe the immigrants were trying to protect themselves from discrimination.] Only a birth or death certificate would tell. Or, perhaps, a Naturalization record. I don't know, but this case is still open..... S.R.F.

|S.R.F.||RE: James Allen Barnes|
Thank you, Ray. I have to go back to my tree to see how this all fits. I am related to the Barnes because my great-grand aunt married a Barnes (actually, the name was Barrins in Ireland). S.R.F.
