|Becky Crout||RE: John Tracy Gaffey|
You're welcome! Check out the other Gaffey relatives I found and made memorials for in Valley Catholic Cemetery!
|The Irish Lady||Kinser Cemetery - Massey stones|
Many thanks for getting the Massey family headstones onto Find A Grave. The pics turned out so well.
The stones really help in verifying family info, too.
I wonder if you'd allow me to used the pics in the family research, with credit of course?

|Andrew Dunn||Pauline Dunn Beaty - birthyear|
Carol, Pauline's gravestone says born 16 Jan 1911 - BUT - she appears on the 1910 census, taken 29 April 1910, age 4/12! Also, she appears in our old family bible: Source: Thomas J Dunn family bible, held by Andrew W. Dunn "Pauline Dunn was born Jan 12, 1910." (Note: Toombstone says 1911.) "Pauline Dunn Beaty died May 16, 1926."
// Andrew Dunn, formerly from Charlotte. Pauline's mother Myrtle was my grandfather Robert F Dunn's sister.

I am doing research on the Battle of Ashland Jun 1, 1864. Do you know if Sgt. Tillet left a diary or memoir of his service?

Hi Carole. I noticed your notes for Eleanor Doyel. She was my g grandmother. Your notes state that you think she had 3 children by L. A. French. She had 3 children by him. Cecil and Gordon. Their was a third,an infant, who died between Cecil and Gordon. Look at the 1910 census. It lists a child by the name of Lucil as a son. Not a daughter. That child is Cecil. Bless the census takers. They have messed up sooooooo... many people who are researching.Gordon was their third (per my grandmother, Clara Wingfield Holder, her FIRST child , by her 1st husband Sidney. When Sidney died grandma Clara was a baby. Eleanor gave her over to Sidney's parents, Jacob and Elizabeth Shipley Wingfield, to be raised. She was with them until she married my grandfather John Henry Holder. That is why she (Clara) is not on the 1910 census with L.A. French and Cecil.
Just trying to fill in some blanks for you.
You are quite welcome.

You are so very welcome. I'm glad you're pleased. Sometimes there is a much bigger story when photos are taken of the entire plot and all those in it. Have a nice weekend.

|Jax ||RE: James Arthur Jordan|
Actually I just went back though my notes and was reminded of one thing that struck as incredibly unusual about Mr. Jordan that I'd never seen before. This is how I know for sure I double checked with the cemetary staff to be sure he had no headstone. His manner of death of "carcinoma of the right tonsil". I'd never heard of that before and the staff and I discussed what an unusual manner of death, seemingly easily preventable. Again, I'll try to take a photo of the burial card. I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to because technically it's priveledged info, but I've developed a nice relationship with the cemetary staff. It's a very small cemetary. Their records are still on index cards in a filing cabinet! No computerization at all. So I have to manually look up each burial. It's almost like going to the library 40 years ago. Most cemeteries are computerized now, but Glenhaven is still small, personal and a bit behind the times. It's a lovely final resting place.

It is disappointing not to have a grave stone as a visual. What I can try to do, I'm not positive the cemetery will let me, make a copy of his burial card so you have a visual confirmation of every bit of info you can glean from his burial records, which can possibly lead you in a new direction of research and hopefully learn a little about your grandpa that way. I'll do my best

|OutOfMyTree||Willis Russell Skaggs|
Hi... just thought you'd like to know about a typo concerning Willis Russell Skaggs, Memorial# 61776781. Summary states his birth year as 1874. However, his tombstone photograph shows his birth year to be 1871. This is supported by his death certificate. Thanks for your hard work! / Tricia
