Bio and Links
I have been involved in genealogy for about 25 years.. I hope to be involved for 25 more.. I encourage folks to become contributors and managers of memorials on Find-a-grave. If you do, please respond as quickly as you can to request for changes. And should you become disabled, disinterested or unwilling to manage your memorials, please make arrangements to someone else to take of them. For there is nothing so frustrating as waiting weeks and months for a response. You can always notify Find-a-Grave administration and withdraw.

If you make a suggest on someone I have which I do not know, I am going to check for reasonableness. That is, do these parents dates compared to the child's dates logically fit; that is they are not too young or dead in order to have a child. Women over 50 do not have children. And men do not have children at less than 15. If it looks right, I will accept it. For those I know, I will check it out. I try to respond within 24 hours and a week at the most.
Prefixes - Military service is important but I will not put a person's rank in the military unless it is a prefix on their name on their headstone. This occurs generally when someone dies while in active service. If it is information but not a part of the name on the headstone, he/she gets no Prefix rank. Many in my family have served in the military and some in times of war. And most I had no idea what rank they achieved until I looked at the headstone. I will conform Prefixes to the headstone. With one exception:Mr or Mrs or Miss - I will not use that prefix even if it is on the headstone. These are not a part of the legal name or the nickname. And if they are a part of the nickname, then I will include it there. As to Suffix - I hate the suffix Sr. It is not their name. It is a add on the family added to distinguish him from his son. The suffix Jr is usually a part of the name and I have no problems with that. But because so many request it, I will put Sr in.

I am not perfect. I make mistakes, so if you see some in my work, please let me know. And please forgive me if I ask you to do something twice because I failed to give you the proper information the first time. This is what is so great about this website - its a self correcting work in progress which gets better and better with all the people who come and see and add information.

If there is someone you want in my memorials, ask. I am not into amassing numbers. But you must agree to pass on memorials to folks who are more related than you. And of course, I will deny request for folks which I am currently working on or who are closely related to me.

Thanks for listening.

RE: Neta L & Neta F McCorkle

I don't doubt that Nettie L McCorkle (1880 - 1881)*
was one of Neta Frances McCorkle's sisters.
I have heard this story to be true from my family.

I only meant Nettie L. was not Neta Frances McCorkle's child, because of the birthday dates. I was letting you know it was listed incorrectly by accident under Neta's children and not a sibling.

I appreciate your time and attention.

I was very excited to post some pictures of Neta and George Welch, and their children. I also posted Lofton Smith Wall and Ina Mae Welch Wall, also Nannie Pearl James Wall.

Thank you again,
Neta Wall

Re: Neta McCorkle and Wall family

I added a few photos of Neta F. McCorkle Welch, George Washington Welch, and their children. I also added a few for the Wall family.

Nettie L McCorkle (1880 - 1881)* could not be a child of Neta's, since Neta F. McCorkle (Welch) was born on Jan. 8, 1882.

I appreciate your time and help.

Thank you,
Neta Wall

RE: McCorkle, Wall, Welch Family

No worries or hurry at all. I understand that this must take many hours of your time. I appreciate all that you are doing.

I was very curious about my family of course, and noticed I couldn't connect all of the dots in the chain.

I did find the memorial you created for George Washington Welch after I sent you the first message. I found him by matching his DOB and death dates. Thank you for doing that.

I was curious about whom I'm named after, since Neta Francis McCorkle (Welch) was so highly regarded among my Father's family.
By the way, would it be possible for my father George Wall to contact you? He's not a computer person and would just enjoy talking with you about the McCorkle family. If possible, I can give you his number, but I don't want to post it on this public site. You can email me if that would be ok with you.

My father George Wall, his Grandmother was Neta Francis McCorkle (Welch), she's my great Grandmother. My father and all of his brothers and sisters thought the world of Neta.

I appreciate your time and help.

Thank you,

McCorkle - Welch - Wall
Hi Martha,

I sent you an email inquiring info on Neta Francis McCorkle (Welch).
My grandmother is Ina Mae "Mae" Wall (Welch).
Ina is one of Neta Francis McCorkle (Welch) and George Washington Welch daughters.

My grandfather is Lofton Smith Wall Senior.

You have created their memorial listings. You listed Neta as Nita McCorkle (Welch). The correct spelling is Neta Francis McCorkle (Welch).

There's not a grave site posted for Neta Francis McCorkle or George Washington Welch. My father says they were both buried at the New Providence Baptist Cemetery, Buena Vista (Marion County).
The only ting posted for either of them is under Ina Mae "Mae" Wall (Welch) memorial that George and Neta were her parents.

Neta Francis McCorkle (Welch), had several siblings, but they are not all to be found on Find A Grave. Some of her siblings that I did find are - John Cleveland "Cleve" McCorkle, James Robert McCorkle (Senior), and William Thomas McCorkle. Their parents are - William Paul McCorkle and Mary L. McCorkle (Greene).

William Paul McCorkle had two wives, so I'm guessing the siblings listed above would be from Mary L. McCorkle (Greene) and not that of Mary McCorkle (Harrell). I found a listing on the US Consensus that these siblings listed above are that of, Mary L. McCorkle (Greene) and William Paul McCorkle.

I'm not sure why Neta (McCorkle) or George Washington Welch would not have their graves listed with New Providence Baptist Cemetery, as they are indeed buried at that church Cemetery, Buena Vista, Marion County.

Please help with any information you may have on the McCorkle family. I would really appreciate it. Thank you, Neta (I was named after Neta Francis McCorkle (Welch).
