RE: Find A Grave--Biography
I'm aware of the spacing between bio's and cemetery name; I post my bios on purpose the way I do. Is there some particular memorial(s) that I could perhaps compress? With over 13,000 memorials on Find A Grave I'm not going to go through them all - would need some specifics.
Thanks for the info,

RE: Cassandra (McCoy) Williams #55165867
Thank you K Nelson. My Dad's parents lived in Licking, MO most of their lives. They were David and Inos Whitby. They lived down the road from where the Williams Cemetery is located. My grandpa used to walk to the grave of his wife, my grandma after she died. I don't know the name of the dirt road they lived on but it was on the corner of the road the cemetery is located on. ( Is that 19?? Can't remember) The side of their house faced the main road. My Dad and Mom both grew up in Licking, MO. I am 68 years old and loved looking up family history. I will be honored to look after this grandmother's record. She had died before I was born.

I was told the Williams Cemetery land was donated by a past relative that owned the land way back in the 1800's. Interesting!

Thanks again,

RE: William W. Harris #1240144
Quite a few of the rural Oklahoma cemeteries are in pastures. Most are not hard to access though. Unfortunately, during the Depression a lot of people were buried with no markers, so that person is "lost." I was told by my cousin's mother that in the cemetery where my grandparents are buried, because there was no money to spare for burials, that families would bring their members to the cemetery in the middle of the night to bury them. It's sad to think that no one will know where that person is buried in later years.

RE: Maggie & William Harris
I copied the picture to William's memorial; but, it is greatly reduced, for some reason. Will see if I can figure out how to post the right size. If you use my photo, please credit me as the photographer. Thanks, that is all I ask.

I'm sorry, I do not know who her parents were.

My (distant) connection is through the Martin side.

Hopefully, you will find your answer elsewhere.

regarding the note attached to the find a grave memorial for John Caviness born 1814 NC who married Susannah Poe (and others )he is the son of William Caviness and Mary Vestal Caviness ,the note you left reads that you have never seen this John Caviness's father listed anywhere as William Caviness.not even in the Caviness is there on page 126. It is listed that way ,and many other areas of the book and also one of Johns Marriages that of Annabelle Lee it gives his parents names as william and Mary Vestal.perhaps you are talking about a different John Caviness ,or a different Caviness book than that written by Alloa Caviness Anderson.There has never been any dispute about this mans father ,I have on my public ancestry tree estate records for William showing his widow and children ,Alloas book is wrong in many areas she has this family and many actual records in her book.Now I do believe she messed up Williams father it should be Richard ,not another William

RE: Henrietta Craven #15946789
Hello - Thank you so much for offering to take another photo of her gravestone. I appreciate it. It's so interesting that you live on Craven Street!! I'd love to see a photo of that, too!
She was my son's 3rd great grandmother.
She has a great nickname, doesn't she?
Thanks again - Janet

Yes I am related through the Morgan and Stringer families. Sally"s mother Rebecca La Rue Morgan is a Great Grandmother on my fathers side she married William Stringer father of Newton Stringer. When William passed in the 1840's she married George Norris. She is a Great Aunt on my mother's side I am a descendant of her brother William Green Morgan his mother was Patsy Reynolds Morgan. Her mother was a Skiles.The more I dig in the family tree the more interesting it gets. So I believe I would be a 4th or 5th cousin to your husband. Happy Hunting, Henrietta Cole

Hello Again - I hadn't seen these photos when I wrote you my previous note. You probably realize that the name is barely legible in the photo you posted of this gravestone. It'd be very nice if it were possible to get one more legible posted on her memorial, please, if you find the time to do so.
And I noticed that there appears to be a poem at the bottom of the gravestone. If it is possible to do so, I would really appreciate seeing a photo of that poem - and I hope it will be legible. If not, perhaps you could write the inscription on the caption of the photo. That would be really nice if you could do that, please.
Thank you very much. - Janet

RE: Naoma Myrtle Whitby
The 1940 Census has it as Noma.

Added by PatM on Jun 08, 2015 2:38 PM

RE: Naoma Myrtle Whitby
I am working with Naoma's son, Jim Whitby, wife of 60 years in creating his memorial and she gave me that spelling. Here's what she said: "Jim's mother's first name was Noma. Everybody misspelled it, but she told me there was no R in her name."

She seems to have very good recall on many other details so I have to assume she is right, but as manager of the memorial you can make the call.

Ben F. Craig
I recently photographed gravestones in Hepsoda Cemetery and while adding the pictures I noticed that you have a duplicate of Ben F. Craig (memorials #64074326 and #28976542). The #28976542 one is the one with photos on it. Could please delete the duplicate?

My information comes from Marieta's son Rev. William Philip Coe. I cannot vouch for it's accuracy. Jacob and Nellie Crum were his grandparents so he should have some base of knowledge. CRC
