Hey Dave, I recently got back from America. I was able to make a stop at my old church, North Valley in Polk County, Wisconsin. I was able to see the churches 100 year old record book. Do you think your family was amoung those who attened this church? If so I might be able to help you with some more information on them. I didn't see them on the charters list but many of those members are in Pleasant Valley Cemetery as well. I am waiting to hear if the church will approve of me transcribing the records for online use so nothing is searchable yet. Let me know if I should keep an eye out for your family. If you know some of the older dates and names I can check my photos to see if I can find them as well.

And another thanks for transferring Mary.

Dave, I am applying to become a DAR member. However, I am in need of copy of his Will and Bible that is referenced in Clara Daniell's book. I went to Cobb County, Georgia to get a copy of his Will but there is no record there for some reason. I found that Orrie Beaton Daniell(1884-1967) was in the possession of the family Bible and he moved to Texas at some point. I have tried to contact Glenda Rainwater (Clara Daniell's daughter) but no results. I am hoping you might know or help me out with this problem. I would appreciate any help you can provide.

|B.J. Waters||RE: Belle Daniell|
Okay, I was thinking that if you believe there is any extractable data on the funeral note that you would like added to her memorial, then we can put it in the bio section, I guess?
|B.J. Waters||Belle Daniell|
Hi Dave, it appears that this was a breakthrough for you, and for that I am glad. My only goal for adding to this site is so that burial locations for friends and loved ones can be found.
Ordinarily I stick with Find A Grave's 4-generation transfer policy, so that as a steward of these memorials, I transfer to the closest living relatives. But in your case, do you think I should transfer her to you, or hold out for a close relative? I usually don't give out my personal e-mail address but if you feel strongly about having a scanned document attached, I will transfer to you. My personal belief is that only photos belong in the photo section, and that the text of documents can be added in the bio section.

I have added the information as requested and also transferred the memorial to you. Thanks, Heather Clark
