RE: Bolda family
my email

I have about 11 BOLDA's DNA connected buried in Mt Olivet.

I was told that my Great Grand Mother, Anna Kupferschmidt - Bolda hand many babies that died young or were still birth and buried close to her.

I was always told about the 5 surviving, my grand father and his 4 siblings. I found 3 other names, all girls and died in infancy.

One was only listed in a registry.
Frances Bolda 1891-1891

Josephine Bolda 4/3/1903-4/8/1903 buried 4/9/1903
Was suppose to buried at Holy Cross,(as noted on Death Cert) I called Holy Cross, and they have no record and seem to think she is at Mt Olivet. FindAGrave_122409100

Marie Bolda 3/20/1900-3/20/1900
Find A Grave_122419775 at Olivet.

I think their graves are unmarked, which seemed to be common with a lot of my Bolda's.

I went on the Mt Olivet site, and just starting adding all the names that were my Family names.

that is why YOUR family was added. Was hoping that someone would find them.. and Here you are!

RE: August Bolda
Oh how wonderful!!, He sure was Handsome.

I transferred August Bolda # 127753421 To YOU!

As I do not think I have any DNA with this BOLDA.

I do have MANY Family BOLDA's resting in Mount Olivet.

I just went ahead and added other BOLDA's hoping their Families would find them.. and it worked!

Hope your day is awesome!

RE: Two graves for David Robert Galbreath
No need to transfer...just noticed that there were two graves. I do the same thing! When I come across a cemetery, a book or online listing, I check to see if the graves are at findagrave.If they are, great! If they aren't, I add them, listing the sourse if I didn't walk the cemetery. Nice to meet a fellow grave lover!

Two graves for David Robert Galbreath
The first listing is 114545825 on a double stone with his second, Ruth Fern Roach, at Midway United Methodist Church in Adamsville. There is no death date, only the birth date of Jun. 9, 1902.

Then I found your entry and discovered what happened. David had first married 27737036 Margaret Lucille Braden on 27 November 1930 in St. Clair County, AL. Would you kindly add her first name and link them?

Anyway, David and Lillian had this daughter:
Mary Ruth Galbreath 1933 - 08 Jun 1933

When Lucille died in 1946, he married his second wife, Ruth Fern Roach. I cannot find a marriage date. I believe that when Ruth died, he had his name carved on the stone with hers, but by his death, he or his daughter changed their mind, and he was buried next to his first wife. I have help his memorial at Midway because his wife is buried there and his name is on that stone. I just wanted you to know what I discovered.

Should you want to link your david to his second wife, her ID # is 114545825. I have left a note on his grave listing your entry as the true burial site and that grave as a memorial stone only.

RE: Jean Sheilds and Glen Barr
Hi Sheila,

I'm so glad you are not upset that I copied your photos to Find A Grave. Some people get upset. I'm glad people copy stuff from me. With that being said, since you own the photo, please feel free to upload it to their Find A Grave memorial and I'll remove the one I posted. That way YOU will get credit for it. I would feel more comfortable if you did.

I contacted the a relative in Casper, WY, who knew the Fowlers. Mary Louise Marten was married twice. Her first marriage was to Joseph David Barr. They had Glen David Barr. Then Mary and Joseph got divorced and Mary married Theodore Fowler. I was told that Theodore LOVED Glen and vise versa. They had a very close relationship.

I love that you are into family history as well. I'm the only one in my family who is interested. All my cousins come to me to find THEIR family history. I don't mind. I actually LOVE it!

I love Find A Grave because it is free. I have found bad info out there but have found that most people on Find A Grave are very nice and will correct bad data.

Thank you for everything!

RE: Jean Sheilds and Glen Barr
Yes, Glen Barr is related - distantly. I copied the photos from a tree on Ancestry - taby52. I hired a genealogist to get the obits and other info on them.

According to Ancestry, this is how I am related:

stepson of brother-in-law of 1st cousin 1x removed

Sorry about that. Loomis's mother, Margarett, was a sister to my gggm Jemima G. Brown. Jemima married James R. Ritch and their daughter, Joycie Sanders Brown married Theophilus E. Thompson and my maiden name is Thompson. I would love to hear from you even if it is just to say hi.

Hi, Sheila, I was so happy to see that we are related from your note on Loomis Devaughn Hawkins. Our common ancestors are Rufus Brown and Joyce Owen.

RE: Fowlers
Thank you for all your help. It feels good having this family linked together. I sent in a name correction request for Willard Terry, the middle initial should be "R". I don't know if this is sent to you like other edits or if name edits are done by Find A Grave staff.
Oh, one other thing you could do, on James A Graham, I had a note added that gives his middle name as Abraham, but it now appears this is not correct. I would like to take out "Abraham" and just put "A" to prevent confusion. FYI, James A Graham is a brother of my great-great grandmother.

McGuire Transfers
Thank You ever so much for the transfers of the the McGuire relatives to me. I was hesitant to ask for Mary's at first as I think she may be related to you also but thanks is well deserving from me to you for all of your work with Find A Grave. I have already made some additions to their memorials. I lack one more Uncle having all of the McGuire Aunts and Uncles linked; hopefully that will happen shortly.

Thank you for your help. I may take you up on your offer. I have several ancestors buried at Bethel and i would like to complete the family links and perhaps add some biographical information.

M M Byers, Find A Grave Memorial# 27737066
Hi Shiela,

I could be wrong but I think that this might be Madison Byers, son of Mentor Byers and Mary Francis Hambright. The date of birth is correct but the date of death is not. According to the Alabama Deaths and Burials Index 1881 to 1974 Madison Byers died 7 Sep 1924 not 1942. Did you gets the dates from the gravestone or from a transcription of the cemetery? Let me know what you think. Thanks

I have seen "29" on another memorial too awhile back. The reason I find Feb. doesn't have 29 days is when I try to put it in my Family Tree Maker and it doesn't let me............

Mike Hambright / William Mikiel Hambright
I wanted to check with you to see if Mike Hambright (27471990) and William Mikiel Hambright (70990088) are the same person. I located the grave of Mike Hambright today at Bethel Baptist Church Cemetery and have posted a photo of his gravesite. The day of birth 1-20-1858 / date of death 10-27-1930 match the marker for him. Can you please help me to clear this up?

Hey Sheila, On your inscription of Julia Florence Coupland Memorial you have that she is the wife of E.S. Coupland. It should read the wife of F.S. Coupland (Fred Shelly). Would you please make the correction. Thanks wes.

Callie Belle Coupland
Hey Sheila, I have been researching the Coupland family and have found that some ancestry trees has Callie's birth date as 1888 or 1882. I recently posted a pic of her tombstone and i am looking at a copy of her death certificate and they both have her Birth year as 1882. Would you please consider changing it on your Find A Grave memorial? thanks wes truitt
