Memorial# 31435502
I am writing to let you know that the Find a Grave memorial (# 106659110) you link to for the "mother" of Malinda Jane "Linda" Harness Treadwell is incorrect. I don't know who Malinda Jane's mother was, but she wasn't the Rebecca Young who was married to John William Kyle in 1799. Rebecca Young and John William Kyle never divorced, as alleged in the memorial. They had two documented children after 1810 and are buried side-by-side in the Kyle - Brown Cemetery, Prospect, Giles County, Tennessee, memorials #33864080 and #33864042. Unfortunately, Richard Harness, who posted the incorrect information contained in memorial # 106659110 has disabled his messages, so I cannot contact him directly and this sort of error does not lend itself to the edit function. As a result, I was forced to post a correction to the memorial itself. That correction contains more information than I have put in this message. I have done a lot of research on the Young-Kyle family and will be happy to give you additional information.

Remember U
I remember u, Guess we are still both researching our families. I have found a lead on Mary Elizabeth Cotnam who married William Hogan. I know she died between 1889 and 1900 but not sure if in Ark or Okla. Working hard to contact a living person in her family. Will let you know when I do find out more. Ola Mae

Rebecca Ewing Peterson
McNary Cemetery & McNary Church Cemetery AZ
I am trying to determine if these two cemeteries are one and the same, and can't find a local business to call. Would you look at the following description and see if it fits where you went to photograph the Cotnam graves: "From Hwy 260 turn south at mile marker 361, crossing a cattle guard and bearing left for 1/10 mile into a fenced area." The GPS for McNary Church is 34.07090 -109.84516 which you can plug into Google Maps and see on the satellite view. Thank you! -Rebecca

Star Telegram obits
I have a collection of the obits that appeared in the Star Telegram from Jan 1, 1999 to Jan 29, 2008. As you can imagine it is a large amount of data but would be willing to share it with you if you are interested.

I'll keep looking. I've photographed Sections 1-3 and half of 4. I'll finish 4 then do section 5, which is also called the potter's field.

You might write the Quitaque Cemetery Association, PO Box 185, Quitaque TX 79255 to see if they can help you.

Linda Stockton
O T and Marjorie Clark
Thank you for the transfer of OT and Marjorie. I have been in touch with Marjorie a few times this past few years. I probably did a no-no but I copied the picture of their grave marker and put it on Marjorie's. I will hopefully have a chance to request an updated picture upon her death. I hope this is OK.

Kenneth Lusby
I notice that you are "maintaining" the record of Kenneth Lusby, buried in Forest Park West in Shreveport, LA, but it was added by someone else. Do you have direct connection with this family? I would appreciate it if you would like his mother, Lavonia Belle Lusby 9730817.

Kenneth was my 1st cousin to whom we were quite close. If you do not have direct connection to him, I would like to have the record transferred to me. If you are part of Pauline's family, please maintain the record.

Ezekiel Newport
Hi Texas Researcher.

You asked me to attach Benjamin H Newport's memorial to Ezekiel Newport.

This Ezekiel Newport was my great, great grandfather on my father's side and I do not have a record of a Benjamin H Newport.

From the records I have I don't believe this Ezekiel is the father of Benjamin H Newport.

The last two children Ezekiel had were Alvin Newport and Sarah Newport born in Fe and October of 1884.

A family photo of Ezekiel with Alvin and Sarah as older children and there isn't another child pictured.

Ezekiel died from being kicked in the head by a horse and both Alvin and Sarah went to live with their older half sister Minnesota Newport and then half brother William Newport. Census records do not list a Benjamin.

Now if Benjamin is a child from another woman with Ezekiel then I could be completely wrong but I would like to verify that information before I tie these two together.

Can you please provide me some information which shows that Benjamin is this Ezekiel's last child?

Also another note. There are several Ezekiel Newports around this time period. In addition to my Ezekiel Newport the other Ezekiel's were born 1777,1854 and 1866.

I am wondering if perhaps you are mistaking my grandfather for one of these other gentlemens?

Thank you!
Lisa Newport

Cotnam, Hunter
I also have been trying to get in touch with the lady who has ownership of the Hunter-Cotnam graves on find a grave. Can not get any respond . Did you get in touch with her?
I'm not sure who you are, but guessing maybe Pam as I know her. Elizabeth Hunter Cotnam was my g-g-grandmother, and Martha Jane Cotnam Hogan was my g-grandmother. Would love to hear from you.
