My Great Aunt
Hi, I was searching threw Fairview Baptist Church and happened upon my Great Aunt's tombstone that does not have a date of death. I don't think I can edit your post on it but here is what i have.

#54470595 passed away March 18, 2008 she went by Bobby

#11534437 her husband went by Doxy

I have not been able to find their son Ronnie Jones who passed away I believe in the same year. I could be wrong about that.

Chuck, there are two memorials for Elvira Elviry Grizzle Gooch - the other one, 13311855, was created after yours, but it has more information on it. I wonder if you would consider deleting yours? All the photos plus other information is on the other one.

Thank you for the Transfers!

Thank you for transferring Bass & Callie Dockery to me.

I knew them very well.

Bass was a big man about 6.4ft tall. He had only arm. He grew a gray long beard. A true Mountain Man!
Callie was a small thin woman about 5 ft. They had a inch of kids.

Thanks again.

Request Transfer

Please consider transferring Bass and Callie's grave to me.

I grew up with them in the mountains.

My family bought land from Bass and I use to
hang around


all the time.

I thought I could put down some of my memories
about the both of them.

Please say yes on the transfers!

My niece keeps up with Momma and Daddy's grave on Find a Grave. They are buried on the TN side at Green Cove Cemetery.

Thank you,
Joe Riddle

Melvin Almond
William A Grindstaff Memorial 448 504 37
In my earlier email i stated that the correct name was Annison.
I have ran across issues like this quite often. Example the wife of James Oliver Bailey, Rebecca Eveline Laws Bailey. The proper spelling Eveline is Evelyn but whom ever spelled it Eveline. Another is Sallie, the proper spelling is Sally. But i have always and have been told that the spelling of family records is what one must used understand that many could not spell very well and spell the way it sounds to them.

My brother has look up death and marriage records on William A Grindstaff and they read Anderson. Te family records that was used by Dr Lloyd Bailey the name is spelled Annison . It could be that the proper spelling is Anderson but the family spelled it as Annison.

Another example is James Oliver's sister, Nancy Jemisine Bailey. The proper spelling is said to be Jimersign, but again the family record s read Jemisine, so this is what is used.

The only difference i see from what you have is the spelling of Anderson. and Nancy's name. You have Nancy Jimersign Bailey Grindstaff. Dr Lloyd Bailey's book has her name is Nancy K. Every thing i have matches what you have but that. I can understand Annison and Anderson. To me the major issue is Nancy K and Nancy Jimersign.

You might note the spelling of Anderson as also spelled Annison at the time he was born so people can see that they are the same person. I would like to know where Nancy Jimersign came from. To me that is the major differance in what you have and what my source has.
Again i would really appreciate it very much if you would transfer the two memorials i mentioned in my earlier email to me.

Mary Faye Martin Brumby Hull
Chuck, I made a mistake yesterday in my request for a link to Mary Faye's mother. Mary Faye's memorial number is 11295086. I should have requested the link to Lillian Truman Grogan Martin at memorial number 67493394. Instead, I made an input error to memorial number 67413394 for Theresa Ferreti. Oops! Would you please link Mary Faye to her mother? I apologize!

W. P. Palmer (1857-1900)
I believe there is an error in the name. Philip Palmer is seen as Philip F. Palmer in 1860 census, and as Phillip Palmer in all other census and marriage records until 1900 census where he appears as W. Phillip Palmer, and his probate records as W. P. Palmer. Nowhere else can I find him to be known as William. He had an older brother William T. Palmer. I believe the two have been "merged" in some way. He had a son named Worth: it is possible his first name was Worth. But I do not believe he was named William at all, especially since his brother's name was William.
Thank you.

Hi Chuck, I was wondering if you are related to the Kilpatricks in Murphy, Nc. I saw you have Hildred Kilpatrick Sneed. but no information other the name and dates. She was my mother in laws mother. If you are related I would be happy to give you some information I have on her. If you are not related would you mind transferring her to me? If not its ok I can still send you some information to add to the memorial. Homer was her 2nd husband. Have a wonderful day. and I do want to thank you for adding the picture of her grave marker.
