RE: Photo of E. Hurst & Angeline Hurst
Rhonda, Elijah (son of E. Hurst & Angeline) is probably buried in Shaffer cemetery also, but has no marker. His wife was Sarah Catherine Christian & they moved to Texas just before 1900 & she is no longer on that census. We assume she died about then. Their son, Benjamin was my first husband's grandfather. He stayed in Texas along with most of Elijah's children. Elijah returned to MS and lived with his brother, George (on 1910 Census there). I have done some research on the family, but since my husband's death, it has not been priority. Elijah's older brother, Joseph Aaron is buried in MS and served in the War Between the States from there.

Photo of E. Hurst & Angeline Hurst
I have added a photo of E. (Elijah) Hurst & Angeline (Roney) Hurst graves in Shaffer Cemetery in Siloam, MS. It is a very poor photocopy of the picture, but the actual picture is lost. If you know of any other Hursts in that cemetery or in Siloam, I would like them added to Findagrave. My children are descendants.

RE: Angeline Hurst in Shaffer Cemetery
Your welcome, I know there are Hurst in there and will try to locate them when the leaves come down this winter and hopefully the snakes are hiberanating.

Amanda and Francis Drake's Daughters
You really want to link the two daughters' memorials to their parents' memorials. The parents are already linked to each other.

While I manage the parents' memorials, I am not the manager of the two daughters' memorials. Only the manager of the children can link the children to their parents. It can't be done in the reverse direction.

You need to send two separate messages to the manager of the daughters' memorials asking him to link the daughters to their two parents.

First, get the memorial numbers of each of the parents. Then go to a daughter's memorial and send an "edit" request to the memorial's manager telling that you want to link the daughter to her parents' memorials and giving the manager the memorial number for each of the two parents.

If you know the husbands of the two daughters you can include a request to also link the daughters to their husbands.

Then do the same for the other daughter.

Here's the parents' memorial numbers:
Francis' Find A Grave Memorial# 8088336
Amanda's Find A Grave Memorial# 13326128

Hope this helps.
