death certificate?
Do you have a death certificate or bonding document that names his mother? I am looking for a link for a descendant to use as documentation.

Thank you for picture
Robert -
Thank you so much for posting the pictures of Thomas and Rebecca.
They are my gg grandparents through Della Cherry ODell. My grandfather was her son Edward Jarvis ODell.
I started doing research because my father has Alzheimer's and I wanted him to have as much information as possible before it didn't matter to him any longer. Thanks to you I can show him the pictures of his great grandparents.

Hello Robert I do believe I meet you years ago at one of the Cain reunions. Wesley Cain is my gg grandfather. I noticed the picture on his memorial with your name.

RE: Thomas A. Cherry
Again, thank you or the photos - they are wonderful. Thomas and Rachel are very good-looking people. Do you have any objections to my making digital copies of them for my records?

RE: Thomas A. Cherry
In order to carry the Cherry surname, you must be the son of Richard Franklin, Jr? I had to dbl-check my family tree information before replying the first time, to make sure I had the number of generations right.
I am happy to share information with you, However, it appears that all the find a grave messages get published in a public area. Do you use Facebook or They allow for private messages, and we could exchange email addresses there. If not, let me know, and we will think of some way.

RE: Thomas A. Cherry
My knowledge comes from work done by one of Thomas and Rebecca's great-granddaughters. Going by dates on the work, I think she began working on a family history in the 1940's, got back to it in 1974. It seems likely that she intended to publish it one day, but I don't think she ever did. She passed away in 2007. Based on what she provided, and also on my own on-line research, I was able to pull things together to a some degree. You may know, or not, that Thomas and Rachel were first cousins, her father being Richard Rives/Reeves and Thomas' mother being Richard's sister Rebecca Rives/Reeves.

Hi Bob,
Just saw the photos you added - thank you so very much. This is the first time I know of that I've ever seen photos of Thomas and Rebecca. Who is the younger woman in the outdoor photo with Thomas?

Hi Bob,
Thomas Cherry is my g-g-grandfather as well. I am descended through his son Will Cherry.
