There is erroneous data in this bio. The paragraph about his mother states that she is the daughter of a Civil War soldier named Cannon. Her father and her maiden name is Schlachter. Cannon is her married name.

I noticed your posting at my grandpa and grandma's listings. (Harlin King and Lillie King). My daddy was Willie Thomas King. Guess we may be related, as I noted the name Thomas as I was reading your posting. Just wanted to drop in to let you know another "King" just read your posting. Take care, Karen (King) Steward

Ocoia Dexter Wilson is my husband's grandfather
This is my first time locating this page. I came across it looking for the meaning of 'Ocoia '.

My father in law, Edward Lee Wilson, who passed February 9, 2013, was Ocoia & Carrie's son. My husband carries his grandfather's name, as his middle name. We have 1 son who will be 5 in August and I'd love to be able to make a family tree for him so he can learn about his extended family as he gets older; since my mother in law, Edwards wife, Linda, passed away on October 13, 2011, our son has never known his grandparents. And I'm quite sure my husband would love more information about his dads family.

You may already be aware, but there's a second memorial to Thomas (Find A Grave Memorial# 112852696). Your's has more information about the person, but this one has links to some of the children's memorials.
I have more questions about these folks if you have more info.

Nancy Moore
Benjamin Hardin Adams
I noticed your recent flower/message for Ben and wondered if you might know what happened to his daughter Maggie whose mother was Sallie Estes, she was Goldie Adams Blackford's sister(Ben's dau with Sallie Estes). Maggie was born in 1906 and last found in Ben and Martha Corum Adams' household in 1920. I am interested in Maggie as she was a great niece of my great grandmother. My uncle Henry Madden married Martha Corum Mulkins Adams' daughter Lulu so my interest is really two fold.

I sure would appreciate a reply

Boyles, William Marcus; #110100171
Dear Wayne & Diane,

I am working to update all the memorials for the veterans who died in the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane. You created a memorial for one of these veterans, William Boyles. Suggest you make the following changes and additions,

Death: location, Islamorada / Monroe County / Florida
Bio: Military service, Private US Army, May 15 1918 – May 14 1922.
In 1935 William was accepted into the Veterans Work Program and assigned to Camp 1 on Windley Key, FL. On September 2, 1935 he was among the 259 veterans killed in the Labor Day Hurricane. He was not positively identified but the preponderance of evidence indicates his body was recovered and cremated where found in the Keys.
On November 14, 1937, ashes and skeletal remains from the various cremation sites were collected and buried in the crypt of the Florida Keys Memorial, in Islamorada, FL. Although entitled to a Government grave marker furnished at the expense of the United States, William’s grave was never marked. The Village of Islamorada has been asked to mark his grave, but to date has refused to do so.

William F Jucoff
You put a message on my memorial asking where William F. Jucoff was buried. He was born abt. 1862 in KY according to the 1880 census. He was married to Sarah Ellen Dubourg Nov 22, 1887 in Louisville according to KY marriage records. Sarah's brother was my great-grandfather. Sarah was also married to Charles Edward Seabert on Aug 16, 1894 in Louisville according to KY marriage records. I don't know when or where William F. Jucoff died, but I just read an article on that said that 5 of the 6 children of Dominic & Ellen Jucoff were buried at Louisville, KY - Myers Cardinal Hill Cemetery except for their daughter Mary Frances who was buried with her husband Henry Wessel in St. Andrews Cemetery. Mary Frances & Henry were killed in an auto accident in 1939. I have their obits on their Find A Grave memorials. So, I'm assuming that William F. Jucoff was buried at Myers Cardinal Hill Cemetery.

Fyffe family in Lawrence Co., IL
I see that you have left flowers for the Fyffe family members in the Fyffe cemetery in Lawrence Co., IL. Do you know more about this family? I have a Rebecca Fyffe who married John Cash in Mason Co., KY in 1837. People are always getting her mixed up with this Rebecca Fyffe (d.1835) 33693967. I would like to add more information to the Rebecca buried in IL so that people can tell the difference. Any information you have about Rebecca and/or her siblings/parents would be appreciated.

Toussaint DuBois Sr 114449543
Dear associates -
Thank you for the wonderful historical information about Toussaint. Would you like a probable link to his Canadian birth? Father Gibault who (as you already know) had a family link to Timothy DuMonBrun of Kasaskia/Nashville fame. Therese St. Ange DumonBreun wife of Timothy DumonBreun had Dubois family in Montréal. Thérèse was 1st cousin to Father Gibault whose statute is nearby Toussaint's grave. So by virtual that is true the Father Gibault and Tousaint were cousins. The Canadians have kept careful records on their genealogical websites of these relations . If you would like to fact check you can Google search "Canadian Geneologicsl records." The University of Indiana and Illinois web sites provide the a links to the area to fact check Canadian records of birth

Elizabeth (Gilreath) Stephens
Mary Elizabeth Stephens was a daughter of Benjamin M. and Nancy (Gregory) Gilreath. Her mother died shortly after her birth and her father (Union Army) was killed during the Battle of Atlanta (Aug 1864). Her Gilreath grandparents were taking care of Elizabeth. She must have used her middle name in deference to Her Gilreath grandmother, also named Mary.

Rita Wehunt-Black
Trinity Lutheran Church
Wayne & Diane,
Greetings from North Carolina.
Yes, this is a picture of Trinity Lutheran Church, Vale, NC, 1882. The first services were held at Lutz School House ca 1813, and were in German. I am told that the church was first called Trinity in 1822 when the first church was built of logs. When Rev. Little was pastor, Trinity's 6th pastor, (1876-1882), the log church was torn down and the brick structure was built of bricks made by members of the congregation. The brick structure was remodeled, and added to in 1927,1943, and 1950.
I am sorry to say that no one remembers who the people in the picture are.
I looked at your memorial for Susannah Alice Wood (Boyles). What a wonderful memorial page. I must admit that I knew little about her, and found the information there wonderful. Would it be OK if I downloaded her picture for my personal files. It is such a wonderful picture.
Good to hear from a Wood relation,

Ureth Murray Find A Grave Memorial# 139670901
Dear Wayne and Diane:

I notice that you left a note on this memorial stating find a grave's mission of actual burial sites. I totally agree!

I believe that I am related to this family as well after doing some research and I would love to compare notes if you would be interested.

I have a copy of Thomas Murray Sr's will in which he mentions a daughter Ureth King however I have seen Ureth's DOD often used as 1802 and the will I have is 1805 but does not mention Ureth as being deceased.

Anyways, drop me a line if you'd like to connect!
