RE: Lena Drain
Thanks for adding the info. No, I do not wish to manage the site at this time. I am just learning how to do all of this. Maybe later, Connie

Managing sites

First, thanks for creating Henry's site originally!

Second, I wouldn't mind managing his site if you'll let me know how. Then perhaps other members of his family.

Third, I would like to add my mother Mae Lucille Smith (1901-1967) & her sister, Alma Lehalla Smith (1892-1987), These are the last 2 children of Henry & Laura Ida Penn.

Thanks again for all your hard work and research. I really appreciate it.

Sharon Smith
Cornelius Vanderbilt Ford
HI---Looking into my family history. I had always heard we may be related to Henry Ford of Ford Motor Company fame----also Cornelius Vanderbilt. I do know without a doubt I am related to Cornelius Vanderbilt Ford, dob 2 Oct 1878 and death 28 Feb 1968, as you have included in your work. Would you happen to know any more than I have mentioned above about my Ford relatives? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Julius and Eula Adams tomb stones
Ok, Family Members in Dallas & Tarrant Counties. I did have the grave-maker photograph for Grandfather and Grandmother so you could check the dates (Birth and Death); However it was merged by another relative and now you don't have the information you all requested at our last reunion, I will try to add that photo back as soon as I can.

Hi Lesley,
We respectfully request permission to use the entrance photo in our personal tree. Bruce has a cousin interred there and the photo will make a great addition to our tree.

Thanks for your consideration.

Laura F. Hooks' husband
Laura F. Hooks is married to Walter M. Robinson on the 1880 census. Texas marriage records report her marrying Wattie M. Robinson in Collin Co on Dec 3 1875. Is the census wrong? Is the marriage really to Willie M. and not Wattie M. ?

Add Child
Lesley, could you please add my mother Mae Lucille Smith-Westfield to the memorial for Henry Washington Smith as his daughter? Her birth and death were 1901-1964. Your assistance would be deeply appreciated.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your cemetery photo on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Tommie Lee Evans Holder
I gave you the wrong husband for Tommie Lee Evans Holder, her husband was Jim Carl Holder buried in same cemetery. The information on her parents that i posted is correct. Her son as Robert Holder that is where I got off on husband name.

Thanks for your help

Franklin Cemetery
Hi. I get this info to add to a memorial I added but can't since the mother has to be added to the child's memorial and not the other way around.
For Infant Franklin and Lula C. Franklin, their mother was Abilene Franklin, #11525916. She is buried in another cemetery-one where I manage memorials.
