Charles Bane
Below is the e-mail you sent me. The answer is I do not know who this Charles Bane is and don't have any way to find out.

Also, I just noticed that the dates and his age on the tombstone are extremely inaccurate. Someone born in 1869 and died in 1888 could not be 27 years old, but rather only 18. The numbers do appear to be plain enough to read though.

Sorry I don't have anymore information.


Their suggestion:
Is there any way of knowing if this is Charles N. Bane is the son of William Jefferson Bean/Bane and Sarah (Repass) Bane?

The 1880 census of Tazewell, Virginia, census records the family under the name "Bean" ... which is pronounced the same as "Bane."

Charles married Missouri Ellen Sprinkle, daughter of John and Victoria Sprinkle. The headstone for his wife clearly has the last name of "BANE," so it is presumed that of his family, Charles, at least preferred that spelling.

Missouri Bane's Find A Grave Memorial# 61236520 says:

"After Charles died in Missouri, his wife and children moved to Indiana Missouri, her two children are buried in the same cemetery as his parents, in Wayne County, Indiana.

Dale Pierce
Great Aunt Hazel Pierce
Dear Jan: (I am sending this e-mail again as it sent before I was finished)

I just found the photo of Hazel Pierce on the find-a-grave and was so excited as I had never seen a photo of either Hazel or Alonzo previously.
My name is Dale Pierce and Hazel was also my great aunt -- my father was Ivan Pierce, son of William Wesley Pierce, Alonzo's brother. My Dad was Alonzo's nephew and Uncle Alonzo was my Dad's favorite but I never got to meet him.
I have worked for years on the Pierce genealogy and have exhausted my resources on finding a photo or much information on William Henry Pierce, Alonzo's father. There are some in the lineage who have photos but they haven't been very forthcoming with photos, etc.
Is there any possibility you might have photos or know anything about William Henry Pierce, my great grandfather or anyone else for that matter. Even a photo of Alonzo which I don't possess.
Any information or help would be so appreciated as I'm hoping by the end of the year to have my genealogical book printed.
Thank you.

Thank you for bringing the duplicate memorial in the Chireno Cemetery to my attention.

You will see that I have made note that her burial in Nacogdoches County is conjectural as she may have actually died in Wood County. Since the time of her death is estimated, we can't really be sure if she died before Samuel Flournoy moved to Quitman around 1860. That is why there is also a memorial for that cemetery as well. Again, it is stated emphatically that the burial there is conjectural.

Heintz edits
I received your note and will decline the edit with the incorrect mother; however, you can go into your edits tab and delete an incorrect edit and resubmit it properly.

Additionally, you submitted an edit to REMOVE John and Maria Heintz as the parents of Caroline Heintz Miller #92801522. Is that a correct edit?
