Ruby Massey, Richland Cem.
Morning Sheryl,
Back in March this year U posted a note that she was "probably" buried beside her husband but that the grave was unmarked. His name was not noted but after checking the records, can I assume he is John (1902-1972)? The reason I ask is I'd like to go check and determine if there is actually an adult female buried in that spot. If so, that would further lead to the belief that's her resting place given the proximity of her spouse.
I'm assuming John given the birth years.
Later, James Coston

RE: J.H. Wigley
Hi Sheryl...my Tree says your grandfather and I are 5th cousins. We go back to Job Wigley and have separate lines. Mine is James Wigley and yours is Job Jr.s line. We are distant cousins. I am trying to sort out the Wigleys in Texas for my Tree. I still have a lot to do.

Joe Ferrar - Thanks
Sheryl,
Thanks for going to the cemetery office and finding Joe is in an unmared grave.
I wonder if I wrote to the cemetery, they could make a copy of his burial record for me? I would be curious who paid for it as he had no close relatives.

A point of interest: Joe was a Civil War Verteran who befriended my mother when she was about 6 years old. She still talks of him fondly. My grandmother helped take care of him when he was near the end. My mother delived food to him and learned a lot from him. Perhaps I'll write the VA and ask that they put a veterans marked there for him. He was in the 7th Kansas Cavalry, enlisting at 15.

thanks for your help!

Harrison burial sites
Sheryl,

Thank you for researching the photo requests for
Edward Benjamin Harrison, I,
Earl Belshe Harrison and
Grace Virginia Harrison
in Oakwood Cemetery, Tarrant County, Ft. Worth, Tx.

Sorry for the wild goose chase.

Did you happen to collect the
section, lot, plot info for my Harrison relatives?

If so, could you pass it on to me?

Thank you again for your effort.
