Oops! The 1831 date was supposed to be 1841. Typo on my end. Thanks for replying.

Rebecca J. Pulling
Hi Sherry, She is buried in the Scott-Pullins Cemetery in Champaign Co. Ohio. I looked at my
mom's original records to tie this person in and she was the infant daughter of William Pullins and Barbara A. Bousman. William is also buried here so makes sense that this "Pulling" name should be Pullins. It is a misspelling on the grave marker.
According to mom's records, she was born 03 Dec 1831 and died 03 May 1842. This would have made her only five months old at death. If the transcription is correct, she would have been born 02 April 1831. "1yr, 1m, 1d". If I figured that correct... Also believe her middle name was Jane.

Hi Sherry, Ihave a book that Jesse Waugh wrote. In it he said he went to school in 1843 and that Creed Wray was his teacher. How cool is that? Jesse was my great great grandfather. Kay Lynn (Wallace)

Waugh Cemetery
I was wondering if you could give me an idea as to where Waugh Cemetery is at. I know it is on private land and permission is needed. I hope to get that permission so that I can get any tombstones that are not listed thus far. My husband is a descendent by the way. We also live in SE Ohio, about 30 minutes from Ashton, so if there's anything in the area you may need picture wise please let me know and I will try my best to get it for you. Thanks :)

Dora Wood
Hi Sherry,

Based on your Find A Grave post on Dora Wood - I think you and I are third cousins. Dora is my Great Grandmother. I never met her but your post indicates there is a picture of her on a horse and some letters from the 1920s. Is that something you can email to me?
Thank you so much - if you can. If not it is still nice to read what you posted.

Elizabeth Wood
I saw that you left a message on the memorial for Elizabeth. I was wondering about your Elizabeth. I too am looking for an Eliza or Elizabeth that lived in El Paso County with her son Charles wood in 1900. He moved to Idaho after living in Colorado, but his mother wasn't with him. I think this could be her. I was wondering if we are looking for the same person. Where did your Elizabeth Come from? Who was her Husband? My Elizabeth was married to James C. Wood Please let me know about your Elizabeth.

RE: Scott Fitzgerald
You're so welcome. I will have to go and study up on my Rheas/Wrays and see if we can make a connection. The longer I do this the smaller the world gets! Thanks, Pat

Wray history
Hi, Sherry,

Creed T. Wray was my 4th great-grand father. I've really enjoyed the items you have put on Find A Grave. I hope you don't mind when I save the information. I always give you credit. You mentioned that Charles Wray was the family historian, and you had the pleasure to meet him. Is there any information you could share that you learned from him. I reach a dead end with Creed and would much appreciate some help.

Again, thanks for all you have posted,

Debbie Meyer

Thanks, Sherrie --

I agree, the death certificate SHOULD be most accurate. That is what I am going to use.

Just thought you might want to notate.

What a blessing you are to us Genie Nerds!

Amanda Victoria Parsons Henry Smith

I am researching Parsons family for client; ghost writing his family history book.

I just obtained online data from TN Death & Burial Index for this individual listing her parents as William (Bill) Parsons and Nancy Jane Morrow.

According to the death record she was born 17 Sep 1869.

Is there some way to determine which is correct; the gravestone or the record?

If so, please contact me at

Curtis Cemetery
What findagrave is doing, though, when someone has become inactive or is deceased and no one in their family wants to take over the memorials, findagrave posts a note on the memorial page that this contributor is either deceased or inactive with a message as to who to contact for changes. I have also seen where an entire cemetery was posted by primarily one person who is no longer active, findagrave has turned those memorials over to an individual who is interested in doing the maintenance for those memorials. Each case is handled separately.

And, of course, I have had contributors who refuse to make any changes or family transfers or even acknowledge that they received a request. When I get those and have requested at least 3 times, I just email findagrave admin and let them handle it. They are generally pretty quick to do so.

Kauffmans in Curtis Union
Thank you for letting me know of the duplication. However, my entries were not duplications since they were entered 2 yrs before the other ones. As to the spelling of the name, I took it directly from a township trustee record that was on the internet at the time and has since been removed.I had the spread sheet saved to my hard drive, but that hard drive crashed and I did not have it backed up on a CD.

At any rate, I did delete my entries rather than having the daughter delete hers. For me, findagrave is not about the numbers; it is about getting the information on here for the benefit of families who are searching for their loved ones. I always welcome any suggestions, corrections, and most transfers.

Again thanks for the information. Duplicates are one of my biggest pet peeves.
