Tizio grave memorial
The headstone you and Jane designed for the graves of Bartolo and Marie is wonderful and beautiful. And I had no idea there was that option...a special one!

RE: Martha Alger Viands
You're welcome, Michael. I didn't know how to tell you without sounding like an awful person... There's just no way to deliver news like that in text messaging and sound nicey nice. I hope I didn't come across wrong. That was not my intent.

Thanks for all you do!

Photo - Alexander Parks
The photo you added in 2013 for a Alexander Barton Parks, in Norbourne Parish Cemetery, West Virginia, is uploaded to the wrong Alexander Parks. The dates on the headstone in the photo are reflective of the other Alexander Parks, buried in the same cemetery. Thank you,

Stephen Davenport 112089188
Hello again, Michael. Do you have any records of a grave there for Stephen? I am doubting that he is actually buried there as he died in Clark County, Kentucky in 1802. I am would not think that his body was moved to West Virginia, and think that this Cenotaph was added some time after his and the other Davenport family deaths. If you have proof that he is there, I will leave this as is and if not, will modify it or create another to show that he likely is buried on land that he owned in Boone Co., Kentucky or maybe where he died in Clark Co. Still, I would like to link it or refer to the Cenotaph which is such a beautiful memorial to his family members. Please tell me what you think or how best to do this.
Thank you,
Cerelle Bolon

THANK you so much for transferring Stephen to me.
I spent a very long time securing the information to be sure that he was truly the right one! I was so happy to find the grandfather of my second great grandmother, whom I had known about for a very long time.
I will do my best with this memorial and thank you so much for creating it for him in the first place.
Best to you,
Cerelle Bolon

It seems that the photo on this memorial is that of an Arthur Davenport. I am not sure that you are aware of this.
Thanks for all of your work. Stephen is my 4th great grandfather.

RE: Rebecca Jane Cox 65471528
Hi Michael,

Wow. Thank you much for this bit of information. This helps in knowing which line I need to follow...I need to follow a William Cox married to a Rebecca Murphy, not Carter.

Yours is the Carter line; mine is the Murphy line.

My William is son of William B Cox and Frances Pinnell.

It is all so interesting to find the very many similarities between these two Williams and especially the two Rebeccas. Each person is born with in a few short years of each other, except for William. My William is about 8-10 years older than yours.

It's also interesting my Charles Cox marries an Alice L Carter of Rockbridge, Virginia. (Charles is son of William) and Rebecca Murphy.

Wow. Genealogy is so interesting and fun, even with the bumps in the road.

Thanks again for you information. It is really helpful.

RE: Rebecca Jane Cox 65471528
Thank you Michael for responding back.

I see the confusion. Both Rebecca's are born within two years of each other, both live near the state boarder, both married a William Cox. Both also appear to have children with the same names.

I show my William H Cox born to William B Cox and Frances Pinnell -- who are the parents of your William? Curious.

I do not show parents as yet for Rebecca Murphy. But I do see by the marriage record you sent that Rebecca Carter is the daughter of David and Sarah Carter.

How interesting this all is.
Looks like I will need to recheck the children of Rebecca Murphy, as there are children that have the same names and Rebecca Carter's children.

This tree line I pulled in is turning out to be a real clean-up job....and I hope to set it all straight.

Thank you once again Michael with your response and sharing the records you had for both these Rebeccas.
