RE: A.J. Sexton
Bill,

Thanks for getting in touch!! Each memorial is assigned a number. The way I do it to make it easier is to open two web browsers. One with the memorial page you are trying to add the parents to and the other with say the father's memorial page. You copy and paste the father's number into the section of his daughter's page that says "Family Links" . You have to click on the EDIT button next to Family Links on her page and then copy and paste the number into the white field. Then hit save or whatever the equivalent is. Then repeat to add the mother's number onto the daughter's page. Once you finish linking up the parents to the daughter you will see that their names appear on her memorial page allowing people to access them easily. Let me know if you succeed.

You can also transfer a memorial page to someone else if a) they are more closely related b) you'd rather not update the page and do the research on someone so choose to let someone else do it.

Are you sure his 2nd wife was born in 1869? The 1940 census has LEILA SEXTON born in 1880. Death record says 1879. Obit spells her name LILA. You spelled it LELA. Do you know which one is her given name and which is a nickname spelling? Do you have the marriage date and place for them to source her last name for me, so I can add that to my tree?

Name: Leila Sexton
Death Date: 21 Sep 1959
Death Place: Rowan
Age: 80
Residence: Rowan
Volume: 46
Certificate: 22518

A week or so ago I came across a marriage record that listed a Mary Jane Nelson marrying AJ Sexton in North Carolina. I didn't have the time to look into it further to see if it was indeed the right Mary Jane. I was under the impression her maiden name was DUNCAN. Mary Jane Duncan. Do you know if she was married prior to marrying AJ's father? If you'd prefer I can shoot you a quick email if you'd rather send this info that way instead of on here. Please let me know. Thank you!!

P.S. I just found a memorial page for Leila Fugate Sexton. I will link her up to AJ Sexton as his wife.
