John Spurgin - birthplace
Find A Grave Memorial# 68016336
John Spurgin

Birthplace: Missouri
Where did this information come from? I'm only finding links to Tennessee as birth. Do you have any more information on John?

Thank you.

Hi, Jim ~ there seems to have been some confusion over Joncy & Myra Dey...Joncy was the husband according to 1920 census ~ he was born c. 1860 and died 1920 by his grave marker. Myra's will was executed in 1940 so I'd guess she died that same year at age 73. There's not much else on them I've found via

RE: Myra Dey
You're welcomed, Jim...we'd been looking for Mrs Dey for a number of years so at least got to pinpoint her even if she has no marker.

Thank you so much for the picture of the memorial. Did you happen to notice if there were any other Duke markers? Thanks for what you do.

David Reed Sr.
I greatly appreciate your effort and reply. David and his wife Fatima are my 3 times great-grandparents. I thought there was a stone since his memorial page listed an inscription and there are burial plot coordinates. I guess his stone has disappeared over time. His wifes stone is damaged.

Trammell headstone request
I'm so sorry. I must have been wanting to request a different headstone. Sorry for the inconvenience.

RE: Case Beckham
Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly! I really appreciate you deleting the pictures. Please don't think that we were upset with you in any way. We just like to see the grass instead of the dirt. If you could transfer the memorial over to me, that would be great! Thank you so much!

Pictures for Case Beckham
Jim, Thank you for putting these pictures up of our grandson's grave. Unfortunately, we would like you to please delete them. They are very painful to look at since they're taken a day or two after we buried him. We have taken some nice ones now that the grass has grown in. Thanks!
