Thanks for your update suggestions for the Rainwater family.
Are you related? I was wondering how you knew about them.
I'd email you, but you haven't got your email set up yet on Find A Grave.
Thanks for your help,
Barbara

RE: Marcrum
You ae very welcome and I am glad that you have decided to help more.... It is always nice when you can help someone from afar:) I think the person who created the memorial went by the cemetery records for the name and not by what was on the headstone. According to the cemetery records it is an unknown burial site and his name is listed as Joe Marcrum age 10 however if you look in the burial marker database he is listed as Wm R Marcrum Jr and gives the date of birth and death and where he is buried, which is how I found the headstone. I would say thay your mother's info on his nickname would be more correct because back in the late 1800's they were not required to document death's as they do now. So the cemetery probably later made the database and put what they could read. I hope this helps:) I also posted the picture of his father for you as well. I saw the picture and he was a very handsome boy.

I added the information you gave me. However, I didn't add the asterisks, Find A Grave automatically does so I can't remove them.

Thanks for the information! Happy graving.
