RE: Lelia Porter picture
I was very happy to do this for you. I'm only sorry her stone was covered with mud and weeds from recent rainy weather. I may actually re-take the photo when I can clean the stone a bit better.
Best regards,
Valerie Kooyker

Hi Rachel I made a phone call today and found out I was wrong. I did not know they were separate cemeteries. I have deleted mine at Mt Gur and linked Diane to them at Eastlawn. Sorry for the confusion.

The obits must have been printed wrong. Or the cemetery is known by both names I,m not sure but this is my ex mother and father in law. If I can help in any way let me know.

Hi Rachel, thank you for your message and it's very nice to meet you. I made the changes you requested. I agree that leaving survivor names in a bio makes research easier, but for privacy reasons, I sometimes remove them. Since you are related, would you be interested in a transfer? Thank you for your time and please accept my condolences on your nephew's passing.

Sincerely, Vickie

? Sallie Ann Jarrell
Hi Rachel, while researching my own family I came across an obituary posted in Sep 1939 in the Greensboro Record that states a Sallie Ann Jarrell was buried at the Jarrell Family burial ground near Bethlehem Church. Is the location of this cemetery near that Church? I'm asking you because it appears you may have been instrumental in creating this cemetery and at the very least photographing some of the graves. I didn't want to guess and just add a memorial for her there but it seems a strong possibility this is her resting place. Thanks kindly for your work and help. Jerry Hughes

RE: Nick Thomas Jarrett
Do you know where he is buried? The obit stated he was to be buried in the Jarrett family cemetery and there is not one in Rockingham Co. There was a time lapse between his death and his funeral.
Thanks for any help

Good evening Mrs. Dowdy. I received your message/transfer request regarding the memorial I had created for your brother. My condolences for your loss. I just transferred the memorial over to you a few minutes ago, and I was pleased to do so. I also appreciate the compliment you paid me regarding my Find A Grave work. I do enjoy it, and "meeting" nice people such as yourself is a big part of that enjoyment. Thank you ma'am!
