RE: Mary Earnestine Davis Mem# 28865725
While I appreciate your transferring Mary's Memorial for me to update. I am not related to this family so I have made the desired Edits and added the Supporting Documentation and will be transferring it back to you. As you will see soon Mary will no longer be listed alone, as I have submitted Edits for all her siblings and her mother's mother.

I would be happy to do the same for any other Memorials that I send you Edits/Documenattion for.
Thanks again

RE: John Heath
Hi Marian,

This is the obituary from the Texas Christian Advocate, July 7, 1898. I can also email you a scan of the obituary if you'd like.

John Oswell Heath, son of Ephraim and Sallie Heath, was born in the state of Kentucky January 30, 1818; removed to Texas in 1846, where, at the home of his son, Judge E. C. Heath, in Rockwall, he died December 29, 1897, aged seventy-nine years, ten months and twenty-nine days; was four times married and the father of ten children, five of whom, with the present widow, survive him. It is not possible in so brief a memoir as appears in the Advocate to cleverly outline Father Heath's life, less speak those words so richly merited. It was his by gracious Providence to live in a time when the world's best and largest history has been made. In his humble sphere he bore his part in that history, as these facts may testify. Commissioned a postmaster under Franklin Pierce's administration, he was among the first who put a key into a United States mail pouch in North Texas; was ranking militia officer for all North Texas; leaves to his children civil and military commissions bearing the signatures of J. Pinckney Henderson, E. M. Pease, Sam Houston and others; enlisted in the Confederate Army in 1862; made a good record and at the close of war held the commission of First Lieutenant; was at his death the oldest Methodist in Rockwell Church, his name being No. 1 on the roll; had been a member at and near that place half a century; much of this time he had been a steward. After commending the aged widow and dear, bereaved children to the God of all grace and consolation, I will append the following from the pen of Rev. M. H. Neely, D. D. It speaks for itself.
D. F. Fuller

"When I was appointed to the Terrell District at the last conference my first thought was of meeting many of my old-time friends, and among them John O. Heath, of Rockwall; but before I reached that place the Master had called him home. In the fall of 1857 I was sent to the Rockwall Circuit, and among the first to meet me with a hearty welcome J. O. Heath, one of the stewards. During my stay on that work I found him always true and faithful. I learned to love him then, and during the years that have elapsed have frequently met him and found him still the same faithful man of God. Judge E. C. Heath, a worthy son of a worthy father, told me on my recent visit to Rockwall that his father often asked when I would get there, and seemed to be anxious to live until the time of my appointment, but God willed otherwise. A good and true man was he. God bless the survivors of his family."

RE: Walter Fred Willess
I am finding many family members. I have asked for and received management transfer for some. I live in the Brachfield community (south of Henderson Texas). One of my aunts passed in 2010 and was cremated. May 19th this year, her family decided to inter her ashes in the family (Parker) cemetery in Rockwall. We were able to visit dad's grave while there. Thank you very much for transferring management of dad's memorial page to me.

RE: Terry Wade
I'll let you save the management of T. U. Wade for a descendant of his. Now that I have linked all those children and wives to him, I pretty much given you all I have on the immediate Terry Utley Wade family. I am a descendant of his first wife's brother, Jeremiah Conklin Jones. Thanks for all the additions you made.

RE: Terry Wade
Thanks. It still does not show the other Stella for the 3rd marriage Once the links for Henry Clay, Stella, Donnie Sue, & Walter get OK'd by those managing the memorials all of his children should be connected to him.

i just wish we knew where Aunt Hannah was buried so she could be included.

RE: David Alexander Underwood
Thanks for fixing that link.

Yes, I am a descendant of Davidson Alexander Underwood, and of John Terrell McCain (another of the sites you manage, and which is awaiting some edits I have submitted). But I'll have to decline accepting the management of any find-a-grave sites, since I do and have done detailed research on 240+ families that represent my children's heritage, which consumes all my spare time. So far I've compiled 32 volumes and a total of about 18,000 pages, and am still working on it.

Some examples of the research and documentation I do can be found here:

first two items on the list...

RE: David Alexander Underwood
Re: Davidson Alexander Underwood - Memorial #28514460

The issue is which memorial to link to as D.A. Underwood's father.

On the one hand, memorial #132995599, is for a known grave, with an original grave marker still extant, in an existing cemetery, in the same county (Stanly County, NC) in which it is known that D.A. Underwood was born, and in which it is known his mother died.

On the other hand, memorial #111381842, is for an alleged grave, with no marker, in a cemetery that no longer exists, about 775 miles from Stanly County.

Both graves are allegedly for a John Underwood who died in 1841. One can be verified, the other cannot. Neither man can really be proved to have been D.A. Underwood's father.
