Dear Connie,

Thank you for correcting your listing for Mrs. Akers. Though she is in my Ratcliffe family, being the 1st cousin of husband of 2nd cousin of husband of 2nd cousin 1x removed isn't exactly a close connection, I had the information and wanted to share it. I hope it helps you and anyone else.

Just an FYI for the above named person. I notice that you have on the record she died 11 Oct 1999, but if you look at tombstone picture it states Nov. 11, 1999 or possibly Nov. 14, 1999. Anyway S.S.D.I. listed death date as 15 Nov 1999. I just thought you might want to know.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

Transfer Mattie Harris
Thank you so much for the transfer, Connie. Regarding my request to transfer non-direct line-- I am the very last of my line with no known living cousins, siblings, aunts, uncles etc. As the sole heir I inherited all the photographs and documents. I've spent the last five years building the family tree and an trying to get the information in a public venue like Find A Grave for posterity. I'm the family's last chance to get the story straight. That's why I am requesting transfers of more than my direct line. I hope this helps you understand my position a little better.

Thank you for your assistance.

Kindest regards,

Lynne Belcher Burgess, RN

I love to read the old newspapers at the Library of Congress website. Today, I found a little article in the Clinch Valley News (Jeffersonville, VA) of 12/1/1916 about the marriage of G. A. & Myrtle Zirkle. The article contains some family information you might find interesting.

Could you move your pic from here to #18471055? I've already ask the creator to move the memorial to Highland. Once that's done, I'll ask Find A Grave to delete mine. Thanks, Denise<><

Please remove the photo of the grave marker. Gary is my brother and died from a tractor trailer incident. I placed the memorial for him and the grave marker is distressing to view. Thank you.

RE: Gladys Irene Haynes
I did find a Gladys Irene Haynes in Franklin County in the 1930 census...she was black, and 3 years old at the time. This might be her.

I feel badly that the obit didn't tell of any relatives etc. and that she was not buried where it said. Maybe the funeral home can release the information on where they actually took her.

Michael Dean
Death Location for Walter E Allen
Find A Grave Memorial# 77871504 - Walter E Allen and Beulah Delores Dean - Census records indicate that the couple lived their entire adult life in Bristol, Sullivan, Tennessee. There is a City Directory on Ancestry that is mistakenly indexed as Bristol, Virginia in which the Allen's are listed multiple times. The street address for the Allen's in the Directory is exactly the same address as listed in the 1940 Census, Bristol, Sullivan, Tennessee. Also, the Find-A-Grave entry for Walter E Allen indicates the death place incorrectly as Bristol, Virginia. The hospital he died in (Bristol Memorial Hospital) is located in Bristol, Sullivan, Tennessee.

Rocky Mount Baptist Church
I noticed that you have added a grave to this cemetery in mecklenburg, va. This cemetery is listed twice with the other entry having about 46 entries and the one you used has only 3 graves entered.

RE: Wanda Duncan
Good afternoon,
Wanda Evelyn Duncan Hayes is my cousin's aunt (his father's sister).

Her brother Eugene Roscoe Duncan was married to my mom's sister (Emma Lee Denny Duncan Nimmer) and her cousin Richard Lee Hayes was married to another of my mother's sisters (Dorothy Elizabeth Denny Hayes).

I do all of the family research for my mom's family - including all of the various branches, my dad's family, and my husband's family.

I'm one of those "annoying" researches who likes to keep research accurate and support everything with documentation - the more the better.

Because Find-a-Grave is free, I like to provide researchers with the most accurate information without violating privacy of the living and copyright laws. I was going to enter information about my dad's sister one day and discovered that an entry on Find-a-Grave has been recorded before the funeral service was held. That was upsetting.

I hope I answered your questions.

Pat W.

Highland Emmanuel Cemetery
Hello, I believe you have surveyed the Emmanuel Cemetery on Highland Road. It now has a sign out front indicating it is the Montgomery Family Cemetery. I am hoping you would know how to get that name added to the Find A Grave Emmanuel Cemetery.

Recently the obit for E B Morris indicated he was to be buried in the Montgomery Family Cemetery. Find A Grave would direct anyone searching for that cemetery to an inactive cemetery on RT 601 in Pulaski County.

Turns out, EB was buried in the Highland Methodist Church Cemetery which is beside the Montgomery Family Cemetery.

Two cemeteries, side by side, with two names each.

Anything you can do or cause to be done to more accurately describe/locate these two cemeteries would be helpful.

Thanks, Best regards, -A

FAG Memorial 49827461
I'm related to the Dawson's family. I'm working on the Dawson line and discovered a few Dawsons that I didn't have in the research work of another relative who died a number of years back. Alice S. Dawson I found on Find A Grave web site. Since there were no pictures of her and her husband Wallace C. Dawson. I drove over to the cemetery and took the photos of gravestones I was interested in. I found that Alice S. Dawson has no death date engraved on her side of the their tombstone even though you listed a death date of 1954. Can you verify and confirm your information and make any corrections on the above memorial page if needed. I have the photo of this couples headstone and don't want to post it on her memorial page if in fact she is still alive. Thank You, Jean Even
