RE: Turners at Thornhill Cemetery
I think some of my relatives were from SC. I will do some digging and let you know if I find anything worth sharing. Thanks again!

Hello, could you please fix his memorial it should read son of Tom Barnett and Claudie Mabel Setliff, not Cladie Sutton. His memorial number is 53025247. Thank You. Kathy Johansen

David W Hill
I am interested in your research on David W. Hill. My great father was a David W. Hill that lived in Ebenezer, Cullman County. My research shows that he was married to Savannah Goss and was married until his death in 1904.

My research is running into a dead end trying to locate his parents. I am running the line on Silas Washington Hill and was interested if you had any data you might have and could share.

Turners @ Thornhill
Hello Benefield Family.
Thanks to you for the memorials and photos you contributed for my family @ Thornhill Cemetery in Marion County.
I recently became a contributor, but I'm taking baby steps to minimize "beginner's mistakes".
I was wondering if you would consider transferring the memorials listed below to me as they are my father, sister, grandfather, great grandfather & great grandmother. Also, the memorial for Missouri Hulsey, # 53286675 is my great aunt, but I am not as interested in but would take over if you would allow.
Thanks again for all of your contributions!

Please get your added memorials at least even with your managed memorials and I will be more than happy to transfer. Thank you.

This is impossible to do, yours are not even. I have worked on linking my family members for many years on find a grave. At my age time is not on my side.

Sarah Caroline Punam/Putman
Memorial number 53295456 and her husband Simeon Howard Putnam/Putman,53295608.

Do you have specific information about them being buried in Thornhill Cemetery? Also, most of the records I can find, including death certificates, indicates the name was spelled Putman. Do you have any information about the alternate spelling? They are my 3rd great grandparents. Thanks for any information you can provide.
FYI, Sarah's maiden name was Teague.

Re: Robert L. Tucker
Related? very distant. Robert married on 16 Jul 1923 in Birmingham to Minnie Maude Blake, she was the d/o Edward Franklin Blake of Rock Hill SC & Ella Billips of Pickens Co. AL, who was the d/o John Edward Billups of Aliceville AL & Sarah Ann 'Sally' Summerville the d/o Andrew H. Summerville & Mary Ann Williams of Kershaw Co. SC. All the Summervilles came from Thomas Summerville of Belfast Ireland and his wife Elizabeth, who was from Virginia.

I am a Summerville from the Haralson/Carroll Co. GA. Summerville/Davis clans. How can I help you?

Marvin F. Kittrell, Sr.
I would like a transfer to me of my uncle, Jim David Kittrell, and his family to me. He was one of my favorite uncles (older brother to my late father, Benjamin Franklin Kittrell). Would you be so kind to transfer his memorial to me?
Thank you for your consideration of my request and a kind response.

Wife of Sion Meter Tidwell
Hi, Alabama UDC,
I see you created the memorial for Scion Meter Tidwell here. I am looking for information on Sion or Scion Meter Tidwell's wife, Lucindy Elizabeth Jane Ramsey. She is on the 1880 and 1900 US Census record with Sion and their children; but, I do not find her grave or her and her parents on Census records in the North AL area. Her birth place is indicated as Mississippi or AL and her parents are reported as Mississippi and North Carolina and AL depending on the Census record. Any information you have on Lucindy Elizabeth Jane Ramsey would be appreciated. Thanks,
Patricia Thompson
