|RLM||RE: Minnie (Reed) Ilfrey, Mem. #153993605|
Thanks very much for taking time to explain your declining to change Minnie (Reed) Ilfrey to Minnie (Reed) Tompkins Ilfrey, and for your conforming with Findagrave's rules.
I submitted the request knowing full well this might be the reply, but thought that since the Tompkins man Minnie married (as linked to) is the G-grandson of the 6th Vice President of the U.S. 1817-1825 (for the entirety of both James Madison's 2 terms) as well as having been the 4th Governor of New York, that an exception might be made in such a case.
Tompkins was only the 2nd V.P., besides John Adams, to serve 2 terms, and there would not be another for almost a century - until Woodrow Wilson's V.P. in 1913.
Family history like this seems especially important in cases where there are no male descendants, and very often female descendants' (see the 2 linked children) maiden name can get lost, causing their own descendants to lose track of their notable family history from their mother's side of the family.
Ah well - ironclad rules are rules, and we'll just have to deal with them, no exceptions allowed; I understand.
Keep on keeping on :)

Stephen Davies 1892-1955 Forest Park lawndale # 57654149
Joseph Davis1894-1979 Forest Park Westheimer
My mother told me that Nellie thought that Davis sounded too Jewish so she altered the spelling. My grandfather Stephen a Davie was the only child that also used the Davies spellind as opposed to the Davis spelling

Glad to hear you and your family are okay. Still have everyone in my prayers though you all included. Would love to have some of the rain though. We still are in fire season. The fire hasn't got near us but close to the places we like to camp at. Respectfully your friend forever through eternity. firstname.lastname@example.org # 47230178

Thank you SO MUCH for posting the information from the "Records on Interments" for Hollywood Cemetery in Houston. I can't tell you how long I've been searching for my MELDRUM ancestors.
You mention the plots for the 3 "children" (David J., Jennie and John H.) were paid for by their mother, Nancy Marie (Stark) Tompkins. Do you have any idea where she might be buried?
Thanks a million for all your work on FindAGrave.

Thank you for adding the Obit. I was happy to find it. It solved some missing pieces of a puzzle for me. I could not find burial or death for her husband yet.Thank you for your kind help.

It doesn't matter. If you need to get rid of some feel free to transfer. Otherwise, I don't care. Thanks for all you have contributed to Find a Grave.

Thanks for the good research you did on this woman and including it in the bio. I was having a hard time finding her. Joseph Thomas White was my grandmother's brother, and I wanted to get it right. I was having a hard time because I have not yet found a marriage record, and there is another Lula Mae who married a Jefcoat. You saved me a ton of time.
