Quite frequently you send me information that you want added to memorials that already has the information on the memorials. I just received one from you that says:

James Onis McManus father is David Ben McManus Find A Grave memorial # 39867655 his mother is Minnie Bell "Winters" McManus Find A Grave Memorial # 39867667. This comes from is death certificate. Would you Please update his memorial? Thank you
James E Akin

All of that information was already on James' memorial. It really would be helpful if you could doublecheck before sending corrections. Thanks.

RE: Jesse Vernon Hughe - Memorial 48155111
Hi James, Thanks so much for the explanation. I did not realize that you were affiliated with an LDS Family History Center. That is a real plus for Durant and Bryan County to have that facility available locally. I was born in Durant, but ultimately moved to Okla City. Much of my family is buried in Highland Cemetery, and a big piece of my heart belongs to Durant. I will stop in and say hello when I visit next. Thanks again.

Jesse Vernon Hughe - Memorial 48155111
Thanks for the place of birth and death on Jesse Vernon Hughes. I have added those to his memorial. I have also linked Maxine (his first wife) to him. Tell me about the Durant Ward Family Center. I was born in Durant, I know Highland Cemetery backward and forward, as well as the Bryan County Genealogical Society in Calera, but I haven't heard about your organization. Would like to hear about it. Thanks.
