Vincent: I never pass up an opportunity to walk through Yates Cemetery, especially when I'm down to Pioneer Days in Douglas County. I was glad to see you had put up the photograph of the baby's grave, Golden Wheat, who was buried in that graveyard. My Sis and I had pondered over that beautiful name many hours while down there. It so happens, I found her on the Census of 1900, the daughter of Henry and Eliza (Driskell) Wheat. The family later moved to Muskogee and on to California where the parents died during World War II in Riverside County. By the way, did you attend high school in Gainesville. -Brad Melton

My name is Rita Allen and I have talked with you before about my 3rd great grandfather. I was wondering if this headstone you placed was purchased by a CSA group or a private purchase. Some of the family said one was purchased years ago with his birth and death date on it. I'm still confused about the marker being in a abandoned building for several years in Missouri and someone contacted me. Can you help me with any of this? Thanks Rita

Our family wants to let you know the information on our 3rd great grandfather isn't correct. You have William Almus Ridgeway and it's William Alexander Ridgeway. John Almus is his son who served in the same reg. CSA with him and he is buried in Feagin Cemetery Hortense Polk Co. Texas. John is his second child and our 2nd great grandfather James Lorenzo Ridgeway is his 3rd child. We have our Ridgeway/Ridgway family traced back to Samuel Thomas Ridgway born 1709 St. James Parish Clerkwell London, England he passed away 7th Dec. 1785 in Goochland Virginia and his wife is Elizabeth Woodson 1712-1741 Virginia. A gentleman notified me a few months back and told me they would notify us when they placed his headstone but we haven't received any messages. Thank you for any help. Rita Davis Allen My e-mail is

So how do you know she's your cousin? Just curious. :)

That's cool! She is my dad's cousin on her father's side of the family. I think I may have met her once in the mid 1970's when they were still living in Illinois. Her uncle, Fred Nielsen, is my grandpa. Are you on Elsie's side of the family?

Hi, I am researching my niece's father's family. His mother had children named Neal and Keith and they were from Missouri. I was wondering if you had information on these gentlemen? Thanks, Elizabeth

RE: William Heacock 4th Iowa
Feel free to use the photos we have put up. All I would ask, if possible, is a mention of where the photo came from. We ask this as a way to make "Find A Grave" more visable. I have to believe that the more people who are aware of the site might lead to more people who will participate and that would be better for all of us.

Thank you for your email.

Wanda Powers
Louisiana Hawkins
Mahalia Hawkins is my 2nd great grandmother. If Louisiana was the daughter and born in 1833 then the mother would only be 11 years old which in most instances is before child bearing age. Since she is only listed in the 1850 census for this couple do you think there could be a discrepancy in her birth year? It was 11 years later before another child was born.

RE: Arie
Hi Vince! I "think" we may be related. My great great grandmother was Evaline Airy, whom we believe was a daughter of James Airy, son of Cutlip Jr. and wife Elizabeth Huggart. Your Joseph was a son of Cutlip Jr. and Barbara Sible, correct? I also believe that the Margaret Airy who married William Henson was a daughter of Cutlip Jr. and Barbara, have you ever seen that anywhere?

Evaline Airy m. William A. Brown in Greenbrier Co, WV in March of 1850.

Feel free to e-mail me anytime:
