Hannah Wells
Hi there! I found your page on Hannah Wells where you have her listed as your grandmother. I found her in my search and believe she may be may great-great-grandmother. My great-grandmother was Hattie L. Wells, the daughter of Eli T. Wells, but her mother was listed as unknown. Any information you have that could help is much appreciated! Thank you!

RE: mayes
I sure can't imagine! I've never heard of that happening before. Have you tried to request a transfer to get it back? Also, if they have disabled their messages, you could still send an edit (with other checked) and they would get our message that way, I believe. Give it a try! Thanks for transferring this one to me. I'll care for him nicely :)

James Mayes
Hello. I am trying to link up James to the of his family in order to have a complete genealogy here n FindaGrave, particularly because one of his brothers was killed in WWII, and his memorial page seems incomplete without his whole family connected there. Let me know if you need any further information to process his edit? Thanks so much! So glad to find his memorial here; Thanks for adding him!

RE: Andrew Jackson Moore
Thank you for the quick reply and confirmation. I sent you a little blurb about his service for the memorial bio.

Andrew Jackson Moore
Good afternoon. I'm hoping that the memorial you created for your ancestor is for Pvt Andrew J. Moore of Company K, 13th Tennessee Volunteer Cavalry, USA. Can you verify that for me? Thanks for your time.

John Washington Adams
John is the father of Robert Johnson Adams b. 16 Sep 1855, Wilson Co., TN d. 06 Oct 1925, Rutherford Co., TN.

He is the grandfather of Dr. Jesse F. Adams buried in Riverside Cemetery, Cannon Co., TN. Dr. Adams built the Good Samaritan Hospital in Woodbury, Cannon Co., TN.

I didn't know John had two wives.

I believe William Adams' wife, Catherine, had a maiden name of Clarkson.
