Transfer request
I am requesting a transfer of your memorial 87290565 for Joseph Ben Champion in Pilot Grove Cemetery, Lavaca County, Texas to me.

He is my husband's uncle and I would like to link his memorial to his other family members.

I was looking at the Find a Grave page for Mrs Booth and noticed that you have the wrong husband listed for her. Her husband is Horace D Booth Sr born in 1860.
Added a photo of their tombstones.

Olive Mae Cousins
Thank you for adding her information. This is my grandmother. I added her husband, Robert Frank Cousins #176971112. I also added Olive's birth date. I have her birth certificate. Everyone called her "Happy" She died after a long illness in my parents home in Austin, Travis County, Texas. I was there that evening. I miss her dearly.

RE: Jenovefa Cecilia Timer Jasek # 156646506
Thank you Matt. I have placed the words in her "Bio" but I will decline to change the death date as I lean towards the Texas signed and certified documentation over a newspaper obituary.

Warm regards,

Jenovefa Cecilia Timer Jasek # 156646506
Hi Matt,

I just wanted you to know why I have declined your edit request for Jenovefa Jasek. Her official Texas Certificate states that death occurred on 12/23/1919. I'm not certain what is on her stone but I have requested a photo.

Warm regards,

Matt, I added a Memorial, which is #176559812. I also added a photo of my parents' marker at the Christian Memorial Estates Cemetery in Rochester, Michigan. They both were cremated and ashes interred there. Just did all that this morning.

Hello Matt and thank you for the photo and info on my grandfather. I made a correction to his name that I hope you approve as it is indeed correct (I have documentation if you need to see it). My grandfather's real first name was just the initials "J. B." Because his father's name was "James Bunyan" it was a common mis-perception amongst many that he was "James Bunyan, Jr." A very understandable error on their part but alas, such was not the case. Thank you. - Kyle Spurlock

Johanna Clark #83163015
Ignore earlier message. She may be the only one that is correct for the rest of the children listed on this memorial. I just found the correct parents for everyone else listed on this memorial. Now, to get everyone else to switch to correct parents. All supported by death certificates of parents and these children. Judy Muck

Johanna Clark #83163015
Matt, I don't think these are the correct parents or the correct siblings. I realize you don't like obituaries, but, in this case, it comes in handy in identifying parents and siblings. Look at Memorial #115628040 for Olsovsky, Johannam “Janie” Drozd. You will have to be able to decipher the language a bit, but, the names are pretty clear. The parents and siblings listed on Joanna Clark's memorial are pretty much identical to the ones mentioned in the obituary. I don't think the Johanna Clark is a part of this family. I think Johanna Olsovsky is the one that should be linked and this person should be unlinked. Thanks. Judy Muck

Elizabeth Jane Spinks Mixon
Elizabeth Mixon was my 2nd Great Grandmother. She was the daughter of Baker M. Spinks (1786 - 1843) and Joanna Johns Spinks (1806 - 1843) Both were from Georgia and both died and are buried at Moss Bluff, Liberty County, Texas in unmarked graves. Baker received a Spanish land grant in 1923 in Liberty County making him a member of one of the original colonists to settle in Texas. If you could make reference to her parents, that would be great.
Thanks, Toni Thomas

I zoomed in and it does say 1931, but it doesnt matter, your 1951 is correct. Most likely whoever cut the stone made the mistake, and it just was not corrected. Thanks again for all your help..

Albert E Jaeger
I do believe it is our Uncle Albert. Our last Jaeger relative that we were close to, was 96 years old and died year before last. He never mentioned Albert, unless he had a nickname. I came across his name on an old family group sheet, I just came across. You do not know how much I appreciate this. Thank you again and Hugs!

It does say 1931, I didnt look at the birth year until after I sent you the message...can you find Rosemary anywhere? I am having a hard time figuring out how to find anyone who died in Yoakum since half is Dewitt and half is Lavaca County. Also I am looking for Albert Emil Jaeger born Oct 11, 1888 in Dewitt County if you happen to run across him. He married Emma Ownby Nov 10, 1909...Thanks so much..
