"The love of a child goes beyond time, culture or boundaries".

Her name was Edith Howard Cook and she died on Oct. 13, 1876 at the age of 2 years, 10 months and 15 days, according to the nonprofit Garden of Innocence, which used a team of volunteers to scour old records in a yearlong effort to identify her.
For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. ~ William Penn
"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."
Leonard Nimoy 1931 - 2015
We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted. Each of us contains within ... this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations, sacred memories, and future promises.

SO much of what is placed on Find A Grave is searchable, but in order to assist others in their research, I also use

Disasters strike us all, and it helps to put family moves into context when they abruptly move, relocate or - frankly - just disappear!

Please take a look, it's an interesting site.
In the eastern United States you can often "discover" old cemeteries by the daffodils.

Daffodils are not a feast for deer, they multiply and spread on their own and were often the flower of choice to plant at grave sites.

And I love the sunny, bright daffodil, reminding me the long winter will soon be over and I can get out again to seek and document ancestors - both my own and for others living too distant to be there in person.

If I have "planted" a daffodil on a memorial, it is one which I have directly touched or made an addition.

My Find A Grave 'anniversary' date is 12 June 2007

So, So glad all is better up there with you all.

I think this is my turn for family sickness.

My Aunt Ernestine's Husband just found out he has cancer, So my mother has been with them some and Mom's step mother Leola is not doing to good.
Mom says she is in sleeping mode.
Mom seams to think when the bad happens it is going to hit all at once.

Me I am working so much I don't have time to do anything.
I did get to take a few days off for my daughters graduation. I am so proud of her.

Any ways You all take care up there. Keep up the good work.

I will be back in a few days to do some more stuff when I can

RE: William Hayes Buttree
Thank you, Gaye, for the information. Hayes was his middle name and in fact that's what most people called him (not William). He related that when he was a small boy, he was taken to a family named Rawlings for the day. The man told him that he was his uncle and that his brother was Hayes' father. They bought him a suit and he ate with the uncle's family. We were also told that Hayes' biological father owed a store "in town". We don't know what kind of store or what town. We also were told that Hayes' biological father was married and considerably older than Emma and that Emma worked at his home - that's how she me him. We don't know if she was a day laborer or if she lived with the family as a servant. We may never know, but it's put a hard stop on research up my blood line on my paternal grandfather's side.

We also, from discussions with Hayes, knew that Mitch was a hard man.

My husband and I live in Hamilton, OH and if you ever need anything around here (photos of headstones, etc.), please let us know.

Thanks again,
Joyce Rose

William Hayes Buttree
Hi, My name is Joyce (Buttree) Rose and I am William Hayes Buttree's granddaughter. I am trying to track down information about his biological father. It seems from the information posted that you are aware that Mitch Buttree was not his father. Do you have any further information?

RE: Duplicate memorials
Thank you for being so helpful. What I am attempting to do is discover more about my paternal grandmother who was married to Edward R Johnson. Her name was Kate Brady (Katherine Brady Johnson) and she had a sister Margaret. Her mothers maiden name was King. Their parents were born in Ireland. They were raised by an Aunt who took them out of an orphanage in Baltimore, MD. I get no where with this? I am grateful for any help you can give me. I see you are a Johnson too and how are you related to me?
