Thanks for letting me know. It was a very minor thing and didn't affect the memorial but I still appreciate you letting me know the pictures were added.

RE: Phoebe
Hello June,
My apologies for the delay in responding to you.
I have not been on this site for some time.
My wife and I were updating her Mother's, who just passed this year in Alabama, memorial when I saw your message.

Thank you for updating the memorial with the info that you researched on Phoebe, Romie's Mother.

I have to say, this site and the people supporting it are wonderful.

In my case: I always thought that Papa John (Carden) and Mama Zora (Carden) both were my Grandmother's (Bessie Carden Crider) natural parents. I remember staying at Papa John's house when I was a young pre-teen. But, until I was looking on this site, after I found a Milan family picture that Aunt Brooksie (Bessett)had given to my Mom, I found out that Papa John had remarried after Romie passed away. Mama Zora was Mammie Bessie's Step-Mother. This led me to research the Milan and Pruett 'family trees'.
Again, Thank You very much.

You are correct. I had no source or my original date of birth. Note Key was misspelled on index.
David Donahue, the creator of this file, declares it to be in the public domain.

Maggie Peel Autry #133609892
Thanks for making updates for this memorial.
I have a census record for her showing Jul 1876 to be the date of birth,and in this census she is living with her parents and her daughter.
If I could just ask for "Maggie" to be moved to her nickname, and her formal name "Margaret" to be put in "given name."
I enjoyed reading your information after getting the notice from Find-A-Grave that updates had been made. You do good work! Regards.

Bennie J Barron #167282774
Hi I received this from Find-a-Grave on the above memorial:


This is an automated email letting you know that your recent edit for the Bennie J Barron (1916 - 1991) Find A Grave memorial has been declined.
General reason: Not accurate - Their data conflicts with my data.

Link to memorial:

Thanks for your input,
Find A Grave

Here is the data I have for Rev. Bennie Barron:
1916- 1991
Bennie J. Barron was born August 13, 1916, in McComb Mississippi, the first of three sons born to Jesse and Minnie Howell Barron. Because he was the son of a railroad man, most of Bennie's growing-up years were divided between McComb and Paducah, Kentucky, important towns on the old
Illinois Central Railroad line. The first Methodist influence on his life came through
participation in the old Epworth League. That influence led to his profession of faith in Christ at the age of sixteen in a preaching service of the Pearl River Avenue Methodist
Episcopal Church, South, in McComb.

After graduating from high school, Bennie moved to Paducah and to a job in the I.C. Railroad Shop. In 1943, he joined the Army and served with an Infantry Division in Europe. He was discharged in 1945 and returned to Paducah
to struggle with a continuing sense of being called to preach.

Bennie resisted this call from the Lord because he felt he lacked the talents and abilities needed for an effective ministry. But the call persisted and was finally acknowledged before the Arcadia Methodist congregation in Paducah. He was granted a license to preach by the Paducah District Conference in 1946.
That same year Bennie enrolled in Lambuth College and was appointed to the
Pocahontas Circuit of the Jackson District. During his college years, he also served the
Bethel Springs and the Shiloh Circuits of the Lexington District. He graduated from
Lambuth in 1949, and was admitted to the Memphis Conference "on trial" in 1950.

It was during his Lambuth years that Bennie met Martha Holmes, a student from
Huntingdon, Tennessee. They began a life together as husband and wife on March 17,
1948. In the years that followed, Martha was not only his beloved wife in marriage, she
was also his faithful companion in the ministry. To this union, two daughters were born:
Gina (Mrs. Mike Adams) and Gail (Mrs. Randy Allen). Bennie had four grandchildren:
Scott and Justin Allen, and Wesley and Marie Adams. Bennie's family was the treasure
of his life.

In 1950, Bennie was appointed to the Brewers Circuit of the Paducah District. While
there he commuted to Bethel Seminary in McKenzie, Tennessee, and participated in the
Conference Course of Study until meeting the educational requirements of our church.
He was admitted into full connection and ordained a Deacon in 1952. He was ordained
an Elder in 1954. He served five more appointments until his retirement in 1978. All
in the Paducah District, they were: McKendree Station; Paducah, St. Marks; Calvert
City; Paducah, Trinity; and Bandana-Oscar. After retirement, he continued to preach and
pastor when there was a need. He served the Massac congregation for three years and
filled other pulpit vacancies when he was asked and was able to do so.

Bennie died January 28, 1991. On January 30th, a Service of Death and Resurrection
was held at Calvert City with Roger Joseph and Paul F. Douglass presiding. Burial was
in Long Rock Cemetery near Huntingdon, Tennessee. He is survived by his wife, his
two daughters, the four grandchildren, and two brothers, Jesse and William. The above words, reflecting some of the remembered and gathered data about the life of Bennie Barron, will be recorded in a Journal of our Conference. But the most meaningful memories cannot be contained in words. The day after he died, I was present
in the chapel of a Paducah Funeral Home watching the long line of patient people waiting
for their brief minutes of speaking to Martha and her family. I looked at their faces and
remembered words read years ago.

"They are not dead who live in hearts they left behind.
In those whom they have blessed they live again."

Hour after hour, the people came, each trying to say what can never be adequately
said. I was one of them. When we left we took with us our own memories of how
Bennie Barron (who thought himself unpolished) had blessed our lives, and we will not
forget. Reverend Gene Barnes [written by as printed in the Memphis Conference Journal of the United Methodist Church 1991]

Please explain your information.

Please remove the death certificate scan from the above memorial. It doesnt add any additional information than what is already on the memorial. I feel it actually takes away from the presentation of a memorial. (We do not frame d/c of family and hang them on the wall).
Thanks in advance.

Thank you so much for taking the nice photo of the Berkley gravestone. I am researching a line of Berkleys connected to my family and this helps to clarify some things as well as preserving the image of the stone. Thank you again!

Merry Christmas!
