RE: Estelle Simpson
I don't think she had another name. Too bad Alabama death certificates are not online or we might have an answer. She's probably there but I don't like to guess at things like that. Thanks for taking time to look again, especially in this hot weather!!

I submitted a correction for Anna Lester's parents. Her parents are John Edward and Sarah Halsey Bishop. Thanks in advance for making this correction to my great aunt's Find A Grave site.

Wow! Thanks for all of the work you are doing for Find a Grave! I see that you managed some of my family and I was wondering if you would mind transferring them to me. They are:
St. George Henry Cooke #75324955
Adm. George Henry Cooke #75325303
Sarah Lyon Cooke #75325181
Clarence Cooke #75325088

Thanks for you time!

Sarah Jane Mooney grave marker photo
Hi Bennie,

First, thank you for your years of service as a police officer. So glad you're retired now and healthy enough to do what you enjoy...genealogy & Find A Grave. Thanks, too, for all that you do on F-A-G!

I'm researching a McLeod family and was looking at Ella Jane Smith McLeod #84365527 born 7/17/1875 & died 4/5/1954. She's buried in Hame Branch Cemetery, Paxville, Clarendon Co., S. C.

There is a second grave marker photo on Ella Jane Smith McLeod's memorial #84365527 posted by you on 3/13/2009...but it is not for Ella Jane Smith McLeod.

The grave marker photo you posted 3/13/2009 is for Sarah Jane Mooney born 1/7/1865 & died 7/15/1949 & F-A-G memorial #28132556.

I'm advising you so that you can remove Sarah Jane Mooney's grave marker photo and post it to her memorial #28132556 where she is buried in Mt. Zion Baptist Church Cemetery, Tiller Crossroads, Chambers Co., AL.

Isn't it nice to know you're like the rest of us...a human being who occasionally makes a mistake! Easy to understand as both women have the same middle name Jane! Just pure luck that I ran across it.

Continued good health to you so you can keep on doing what you enjoy! If you need to contact me, just use the "suggest any correction" edit tab and use my 1st memorial.

Best wishes,

Mary (Contributor #47792069)
