In looking at all 3 memorials - Michael is already listed as their son. And since you are the contributor of Michael's memorial - you would have had to be the one to link them. We cannot link the parent to the child - it has to be the child to the parent and by the contributor of the child to be processed by. But the link is already done, and is wasn't by me.

Mary J. Sanders Wise find a grave
Hi Denny. I noticed you placed flowers on Mary J. wise find a grave. Her maiden name is Sanders, I believe. I have been looking for years for my GGG Grandmother Josie Sanders Hudspeth. She lived in Carroll county, Arkansas when she married John Abraham Hudspeth on Jan 1 or Jan 10, 1884. I have been following Mary Jane sanders Wise because I am looking for any clue to see if I can find Josie's family and parents. Josie had Indian in her. Do you know if Mary did, and do you know the parents of Mary J. Sanders Wise? Could she possibly be sister to my Josie Sanders?

Charles Columbus Montgomery
This memorial page:

contains an error. Charles Columbus Montgomery was the son of Benjamin Franklin and Eliza Williamson Montgomery. His mother was not Rebecca Pursley Montgomery. Benjamin F Montgomery married first to Eliza Williamson 15 August 1869 at Tyler, West Virginia.

The same physician and minister, William Strickling, also performed the marriage ceremony of Benjamin's brother, William James at the same locality on 16 March 1871 when William wed Mary Doak.

Benjamin Franklin Montgomery married for the second time to Rebecca Pursley 22 May 1872 at Botetourt, Virginia, nearly two years after the birth of Charles Columbus Montgomery.

Thank you for leaving such wonderful tokens for my mom, Mary Evelyn Oliver. It makes my heart smile when I go to her memorial and someone has remembered her.
