#26464245 Memorial
You made a memorial for my great grand father Linwood Loving Tinsley. I was wondering if you could add his daughter Ima Faye Tinsley (1923-1965)under children. My great grandfather had 13 children from two different marriages.

Hi, you made a memorial for my gr gr uncle Miles Houston Whittaker, Find A Grave# 25695404, in Maplewood Cemetery. I haven't been able to find any contact info for Maplewood to ask someone for the plot location, so I wanted to know if you could tell me exactly where his plot is. I'll be visiting Tazewell in about 1 month and would like to come visit him.

Thanks so much for your time and all your hard work, any help you can provide is appreciated!

Take care,

Kathy Ferguson

My name is kathy Ferguson. I am 1st cousin with Jerry Wayne Hodge. I noticed you and I both have a memorial for Jerry. As far as I am concerned, it doesn't bother me for us both to have one. But I have learned in the past few years that a lot of people get upset over things like that. I've had some pretty nasty messages about some of mine. It really doesn't matter to me if both of ours stay on. I noticed your post about letting you know about things like this. If you would like to delete yours, I will understand. If you don't want to delete it, that's fine too.

It looks like you have done a lot of research. Thank you for your hard work.

John Floyd Gillespie #111365561
I believe, from death certificate & the book "Harman Genealogy (Southern Branch)", this is the son of Henry H. Gillespie and Nancy B. Harman not Thomas S. & Mariah Peery Gillespie. The maiden name of his wife Mary Ann was Gillespie not Thompson. His first name may have been James but of that I am not sure. Thank you.

Just thought you should know - Memorial # 17119627 has a sister Margaret "Peggie" (Harman) Belcher born around August 1862 to 24 March 1935. I believe they also had brothers Mathias JR (1849), Jonathan (1852) and William (1850). She had 2 children - Dan (1885-ukn) and Sam Ray "Ray" (1880-1954) Harman, they both took the Whitt name. Peggie married William Belcher on 1 March 1899. Then she had Paris Belcher (1901-1958) and Bennie Belcher (1899-1945).

I know their parents where Henry A. & Christina Harman, (married on 26 August 1847) would you happen to know who their parents are?

Mary Stephens Scrudder
Gladys Cornwell Newman # 24394301
Virginia - I just want to check on the grave of Gladys Cornwell Newman # 24394301. She was the wife of John Henry Newman. You clearly show a headstone for John Newman. However not one for Gladys. Is there a cemetery record for her burial? I ask because I just viewed the West Virginia Death Index for Gladys and it gives the burial place as "Bluefield Cemetery" in Bluefield, West Virginia.

I've seen cases where a family seemed to change their mind (after a death record was created) and bury the person in a different location. Just wanting to know if this was the case here.
