RE: From Crystal Hunter
I write so many so let me make sure I am remembering correctly here ... You are a grand child or Leonard Watson Compton, correct? your Great Grandmother is Nellie Bernice Rogers Compton, married to George Washington Compton, correct?
Nellie is the daughter of Jacob and Rachel Baker Rogers...

are we on track here..?

so, you want a photo of Rachel? some of the other family members? got a few of Nellie too, I do not have them all out where I can scan them but I am working at it.. (I moved a few years ago, things were packed up, and I have been sick on and off, It takes me long time to be able to do things I use to do quickly..)

I also can send you copies of a few letters Rachel wrote to my Mama, and Aunts... I may even have letters from Nellie if I can get to them.

Maybe you will be able to tell me if some of the photos I have are some of the Comptons or of George Washington Compton... I have one of William benjamin Compton, his brother who was married to Nellie's sister Lora... He was the one that was fishing on the water, clear day, no nothing and bam, lightening struck him dead. Lora had only been married about a year, was pregnant at the time he died... then Little Willie was born and he only lived about a year too.. sad just SAD..

I saw the photos you posted on Find a grave, do you have others you may be able to scan in and we could do some trading of copies? if not, I will still send you copies of what I have in a printable resolution.

I am always interested in copies of old family letters too, kind of hoping to run into some that My Mama or her sisters wrote to family.. they are good to read. I have several of the letters My grandma, Elsie Gail Rogers Ratliff wrote the last year of her life, back in 1926 -1927 even on the day she died... she drown in wolf creek in Shattuck OK... I have shared them with many folks, so relatives can get to know her a little and letters are the only way to do it once folks are gone.

So, my email address is (remove the spaces to use it) d a n 2 w e e @ g m a i l . c o m (I share the email address that way to hopefully prevent spam, ads, etc from grabbing it and then drowning me with email that I have no use of...and dislike it coming where I have to clean out the inbox so often

so send me your email address and I will start sending things to you.

A tip for you Crystal....when you add pictures to find a grave you need to make sure you choose from the drop down menu the type of photo, whether it's a grave, person, family, or other. The pictures you have added of people are showing up on the cemetery list of all interments as photos of graves. Thanks.
