Saunders in Danville.
Hi, I rec'd 3 edits from you, I completed one, I would like to make a suggestion to see how you feel. You have sent me edits for first names on the other 2, I always like to leave them as what is on the stone as much as possible, for that is what usually the person was known as and also went by and sometimes that creates duplicates when the name & what is on the stone are different. What do you think if I added the full names in the bio, let me know, thanks, Larry

I've corrected their burial information. Need to follow Find A Grave guidelines and request a transfer of memorials to you and not create duplicates.Thanks for the correction. Have a great day!

RE: John A. Melson
I would love to have this newspaper article about my grandmother Margret Melson. I had never heard of this affliction.

I am going to pickup my Dad next Wednesday, Nov. 26th for Thanksgiving (he will be 89 years old in December), and would love to show him this newspaper article and see if he has any memory regarding her ability to speak with the dead.

I have the info for John A Melson now, and will make the trip to Oakwood Cemetary and take photo of John A. Melson's grave.

If you are on Ancestry, we may can share each others family trees. I am trying to find out Margeret Melson's husband Lawrence Moore Cooke, who was his 1870 census he is listed as a two year old infant in Lazarus Cooke's household, but no mention of his father, and my Dad cannot remember. Any help is appreciated.

John A. Melson
Kymberly Topping,

My grandmother, Gladys Cooke Askew, was the daughter of Margarett Elizabeth Melson. John A. Melson was her grandfather.

Thanks for setting this memorial up, and I live outside of Raleigh, NC. I do plan to go and see the grave of John A. Melson in Oakwood Cemetery. I am a member of the Sons of the Confederacy and the Sons of the American Revolution.

Elizabeth Foster Hewitt
Hi. Elizabeth is a way out on the Hewitt Family tree from me. She is the wife of my 4th cousin 3 times removed! The reason I am writing is that her sister Mary Effie (Hewitt) Gajdos is buried in Ravenna, Ohio where my great uncle Carl Christian Hewitt is buried. I had been researching Franz Carl Hujet's line from 1738 in Philidelphia and drilled all the way down to John Hewitt in Southern Pines, NC -- to find Ms. Foster -- John's second wife. Also, John and Mary's brother, Jacob or "Jake" played pro ball with Pittsburgh Pirates. Carl Hewitt is also in Franz's lineage. I was researching simultaneously in northeast Ohio and Southern Pines when I made the connection. I wanted to share with you that the two branches of the same line meets in Ravenna at Maple Hill Cemetery where Mary and Carl are buried.

Hattie Lawrence Butts
Hi, I "Believe" this is the scenario on Hattie.

I am sorry, I don't know that answer.

I believe parents died and by 1880, she was living with Lemuel Leary and wife Nancy Virginia Locke, who was a cousin of the Butts family. Lemuel and Nancy eventually ended up in Columbus, MS, and James Edward Butts also ended up there with his wife Harriet (Hattie). They had married back in Halifax County in 1888, and soon thereafter, all those Butts brothers migrated to Lowndes County. Many of the Lawrence family also ended up in lowndes county, miss. and some went on to Bossier Parrish, LA I do not know if these were the same Lawrence people, tho.
