RE: Sultina Hairston Roberts
I'm not giving up. I'm heartbroken at the lack of care at this cemetery, so I'm going to try to get in touch with someone at the church to find out how to get it better taken care of. With some luck, we'll find Sultina. :-)

RE: Susan Eva Poyas Mendenhall & John Waugh
Thank you very much for the articles. I think the article referred to Susan's daughter Thelma Tomsey mendenhall.

RE: Susan Eva Poyas Mendenhall & John Waugh
Hi, I would be interested in seeing the article thank you. I am not sure if there was a child between Susan and Waugh. I have seen on the census where Susan's daughter with Mendenhall was listed as Waugh...Somehow I think he referred to her as his daughter.
have you contacted Mlomx ( not correct name) he is doing a lot of research on the Poyas Family. He has complied several bios on findagrave. I haven't done any more on that branch.

Wanted to let you know, that the church that is attached to the cemetary, is no longer in use, the grounds are cared for by private company, is there a possibility, that the Lindsay's were buried anonymous, in another family plot, as folks did years ago...?jb

RE: Adolphus D Waugh
Do you think that this Adolphus D Waugh is the son of the older Adolphus D Waugh memorial you have? Do you want me to transfer this Adolphus D Waugh to your management? As I said, "Bracky" created it and just included it when transferring two other Waughs whom I know to be my relatives, but most likely this Adolphus D. is not my relative and if he is yours then I'll transfer him to you if you want.

RE: Adolphus D Waugh
I do not know how I am related to Adolphus D. Waugh, although I'm fairly certain it is not a recent or close connection. "Bracky" created the memorial and transferred it to me along with some of my known Waugh relatives for whom she had also created memorials.
Are you related to the Waugh family?

RE: Belva Watkins 127192879
It was on ancestry in the family tree of Stephanie Peters on I try to give the credit for all photos I find that I did not take and if you will click on Belva's photo, it will say that under the photo. If you don't have ancestry, I'd be happy to give your information to Stephanie if she has her email on ancestry.
