Spear, I have corrected my memorial for Myrtice Hood Barker. Is Ward or Wall the maiden name? Once it was easy to determine a maiden name and given name but anymore we can't tell just by looking at a name. Thanks for all you do for F.A.G.

I just wanted to say thank you! I was wanting to know if when you do the photos and the page for a grave is it possible that you get information about the person who is deceased.
Thank you

Johnnie Claris Fralic Sayers memorial # 139813699
Dear Spear,

Thank you for all of your hard work. I do have a few corrections to add for Claris Fralic Sayers, Find-A-Grave memorial # 139813699. Her husband is not Jeremiah Washington Sayers, but is John Willie Sayers (he is buried between his first wife Hazel and his second wife Claris), memorial # 139813655.

Furthermore, concerning Claris' parents, her father is not Timothy Fralic, but is instead John Templeton Fralic (born 5 October 1879 or 1880, AL, died 14 Apr 1966, East Tallassee). I have not yet located his grave and have no Find-A-Grave memorial number for him.

Her mother, and his wife, Lula Baker is memorial #103814705, and she dies 36 years before Templeton dies, which might be a contributory factor to not yet finding his grave.

Templeton, Lula and their children (including Claris) are enumerated on the 1910 census (Year: 1910; Census Place: Church Hill, Tallapoosa, Alabama; Roll: T624_34; Page: 3A; Enumeration District: 0173; FHL microfilm: 1374047), and Templeton and Lula enumerated later in 1930 (Year: 1930; Census Place: Reeltown, Tallapoosa, Alabama; Roll: 50; Page: 7A; Enumeration District: 0020; Image: 858.0; FHL microfilm: 2339785).

Templeton's WWI draft registration card is signed with his full name and gives his wife's name as nearest relative (Registration State: Alabama; Registration County: Tallapoosa; Roll: 1509441, link:

Lastly, Claris Fralic and John Willie Sayers' marriage lists her parents as JT Fralic, but erroneously lists her mother as Ledbetter. Perhaps her father had remarried a Ledbetter after her mother's death ( link:

Thank you again,

Thank you so much for the photos, especially his service marker. I hate to see someone that served our country without a marker on his memorial. You are an angel. Thank you for all you do for Find A Grave researchers.

Thanks for processing the updates so quickly - so many F-A-G posters are so worried about how many names they can get, they add inaccurate data, and even cemeteries, and won't correct them when notified. I appreciate your careful and detailed work. Accuracy makes Findagrave useful.

Find a Grave memorial
Rose Hill Cemetery, marker for Myrtice M Gaither and Ernest A Gaither. They have a joint marker, however, they are brother and sister not spouses. They are relations of mine. Memorial numbers 123731270 and 123731216.

Also they are children of Alvin A and Glennie V Gaither at memorial #136469361.

If you need further information from me, I would be happy to help. I have many, many relatives in Rose Hill Cemetery and have made many photos myself. Thanks for the work you have done.

Thanks, Carol Still Wiggins

RE: Henry H Lightsey
I agree, I do not like the pictures with flour on them. But you didn't understand what I said. First I only use it on unreadable sand stone that is almost gone. These stones if not discovered will be lost forever. Once I read it and write it down, I wash it off, then take the picture and add it to Find A Grave, even if you can't read it. I too have seen these photos where they pack so much in it won't come out. I don't just add to Find A Grave, I manuscript the graveyards, with the graves in the order they are in, not alphabetically. This way the grave even if the stone is gone I can locate it if someone needs to find it. Even on Find A Grave, if someone asks, I can tell them who is buried next to the person they're inquiring about. In the spring at decoration time, I go to as many as I can, unfortunately some are on the same day. By doing this I have helped a lot of people find their loved ones. And at the same time by talking to some, have gotten info and located unmarked graves and their inhabitants. My wife and I have, or used to, done this for many years. Anyway, keep up the good work and God Bless. (Bobby)

RE: Henry H Lightsey
Thanks, I have the brush that I use as a dry brush. But since you mentioned the spray bottle, I t reminded me that I have a pump up sprayer that I think would work well. Another friend of mine showed me how you can use plain flour on the old sand stones that are impossible to read. Just rub the entire stone with the flour, then lightly wipe over with your hand. The writing will stand out so you can read it. Plain flour has no salt or yeast, it is totally organic. After I read the stone I wash it off. It comes off with water very easily. Actually I floured one yesterday and forgot to wash it, it rained last night and I went back today and the flour was gone. I wasn't sure about it at first but I tried it I was amazed at how well it worked. Anyway thanks for the hint. Always receptive to a better way. Have a great weekend. (Bobby)

RE: Henry H Lightsey
Sounds like me and you are trying to do the same thing only in a different place. When I do a cemetery I include everyone. I was amazed at the cemeteries here that are nowhere near complete. I am working on one now that was less than 400 and I am estimating at 1000 when finished. I try to clean the stones as best I can. It is very hard work, but for me it is very rewarding. I don't have anyone to go with me either. It would be much more enjoyable if there was someone to share it with. My children are interested but always too busy. I used to be a member of Ancestry but now just trying to document as many people as time permits. I believe everyone deserves to be remembered. But thank you for your efforts, tis a noble cause, at least I think so. (Bobby)
