Parents of James Rance Batson
Hi Bennie,
I have just created a memorial for Rance's sister Susan Batson Huguley, who died in May of this year. If you would kindly add Rance's parents to his memorial maintained by you, I think it will create a link to his sister as well, as it does not appear that I can add siblings.
RANCE is 85281455 and his parents are Nora Viola Batson 93313258 and John Thomas Batson
84683480. Thank you for your help in linking this family together.,,,sincerely Carol HAYS Freitas.
(My grandmother was a Batson and Susan's grandmother raised my grandmother.)

That memorial is impossible to read !! I totally get how you would have seen a 10, instead of an 01, but since his death records say he died in January, thought I'd send over a correct.

Best Wishes :)

I don't know if you have, but here are a couple, if you want to verify

His parents are John M Howell, and Lola Page / Paige :)

Tombstone Image:

I totally understand how an error can be made, I think what you do is a great thing! However, if you look at the tombstone, the Birth and Death dates are at variance with what is typed in the Memorial area for him.

I suspect what happened, is an accidental repetition of his wife's information from her grave.
John M Howell born September 1904, whose death record has him dying 1 February 1966 married a
Lola Paige, and if they are buried near each other, I'd lay a bet these are husband and wife.

I submitted a correction for the Birthdate, but was too focused, I guess. Should have done the Death date at the same time.

Roy Ley Walton/Stywald duplicate
Hi Mr. Bennie. Just to let you know this memorial should actually be "Roy Ley Stywald". There's another memorial for him at Marseilles with the grave photo so you'll notice the birth & death dates are the same, and his mother's last name was Walton. I sent you an email a while back but I guess it got marked as spam....
Thanks, have a great day.

Thank you so much for taking the photos of the grave markers for Walter J Smith, Sallie Lou Black Smith, Mattie Fannie Bowles Smith, Forest Arnold Gray, and Janie Laura Smith Gray back in October 2015. I really appreciate it!
