Question for you Sheila
You took a photo of Samuel P. Seiber in Marion County at Bell Cemetery.

I'm Brian McLaughlin with Footprints Magazine in Marion County. Could I have your permission to put that photo in our magazine? And give you credit as the photographer?

If this is a problem, I understand, but wanted to ask!

Hope all is well! Thanks!

Hi Sheila,
Just came across the grave of Martin VB Swalley on this site. His daughter Lola was my great grandmother (my fathers fathers mother). I occasionally look up my ancestors but was pleased to see what a thorough job you have done in listing so much information. Thank you! I live in Orland Park Illinois. I will be reading other postings this evening. So excited to find this page! - Donna

Link James Alston Weems
Hi Sheila--
How ya been?! It's been a while since we communicated. Wondering if you'd please link James Alston Weems as the father of George Washington Weems. James' Find A Grave memorial # is 30073018.

Thanks so much for all the good Find A Grave work you do! If you need any help managing the graves we have in common, I'd be glad to have any transferred to me.


Your 2nd cousin,

Hilda & William Bray - Photo
Hi, Sheila. Thank you so much for your photo of Hilda & William Bray's headstone. They are my great great grandmother & her second husband.

I'm so glad you found them. My grandmother remembers traveling downstate for Hilda's funeral, but was hazy on the exact location as it was so long ago. The death certificate said she was to be buried in Iuka Cemetery, Iuka, Marion.

I'm assuming you live in or near Marion County. if you have a spare minute, would you mind giving me your opinion/experience? Has Snow Hill Cemetery sometimes been refereed to as Iuka Cemetery? Or is one the offshoot of the other? Are either affiliate w/ a particular religion or were the public? I'm just trying to figure out the discrepancy in the burial locations. I believe William may have been a preacher of some sort. Perhaps when he passed away a decade later, Hilda was moved to join him?

Thanks again for your efforts. I really appreciate all your time and hard work!

RE: Draper
Grace Elizabeth Jones (dod - 1985) was married to Amos Cort Draper (dod - 1963) , who was Ezra Draper's mother. We do have a Delbert Draper, plus Ruth Jean Draper could be my husband's sister.

The Draper family has a lot of information entered into I tried to get onto Geni but seem to be having trouble tonight

I'm finding between nicknames has put a snag in a couple of research items but I'm finding a lot of information on Terry's and my family on But I'm not diving into the cousins and people related by marriage after I get the groundwork done.

If you can give me some dates and names I'll might be able to find some into on Ancestry for you.
