Thank you so much for the wonderful picture of Brian in his uniform. The one from the paper was bad. I have changed his photo order.

RE: Frank Monday
Good Morning, Ed-
Thanks for your reply.
How am I related to Frank? He is my three times great uncle. I think.

I am descended from Hiram Hill and Jane Monday Hill, three times great grandparents. Jane is Frank Monday's sister. Also, Hiram Hill is brother to Frank's second wife, Elizabeth Hill Monday. So Monday brother and sister married Hill brother and sister. Does that make us double cousins at some level? Ha!

In life it looks like the Monday siblings stuck together. Frank, William, Elizabeth and Jane lived in close proximity. It is our current assumption they were close in burial, too. William is at Dogwood and Frank/Elizabeth at Harris along with their daughter. We are hoping to find Hiram and Jane in the general vicinity.

Any insight you have would be greatly appreciated. Have you found where Arthur and Rebecca Monday are buried?

Frank Monday
My name is Nancy and I am traveling to Rhea and Cumberland County for some genealogy research on Oct 19. I am descended from the Monday family and would like to visit Harris Cemetery in Cumberland County during my visit. Can you tell me where to find Frank Monday's grave once we arrive at the cemetery? Any direction would be appreciated.

Thanks very much.

James Lewis Riley #81748280
I had a photo request in for James Lewis Riley gravestone in the Layfayette Memorial Park in NC.
I received this message from findagave:

"a Find A Grave volunteer has reported a problem with the photo request for James Riley.
The general problem they reported is:
Cemetery office has no record of this person."

However he is listed by the Coffelt Database of Vietnam casualties to be in that cemetery.

Do you know why the cemetery states he is not there, or do you have any further info on James Riley.

thanks for any info you can give me! Anna

RE: Sally Ann Fory Williams
Thank you Ed. I forgot all about Billie. Is he a jr. or a III?

RE: Sally Ann Fory Williams
Thank you so much Ed. Sally was my dad's sister. I need to go in and edit again to add her half siblings, too. I wanted to keep the "Jones" name in honor of her youngest son, who is in very bad health. We only located him about a year or so ago (about a month after we located Michael) and he had already had a massive stroke that had left him in bad shape. He is living with his sweet wife in Illinois. I will send this link to her so she can show him. He will love it. Again, thank you so much for your cooperation! That makes us "sort of" family. :o)

Sally Ann Fory Williams
Mr. Thurman, I was wondering if you would mind working with me to merge your memorial page for my Aunt Sally with my memorial page? I had created one prior to yours, but her last name is different. I have her listed as Sally Ann Fory Jones, which was the name she went by at the time she passed away. Her youngest child is also a Jones. I've never understood why her headstone read Jones and the paper read Williams. Just odd. Thank you very much. Joy Fory Davis
