I was ask to link several of your Lakey memorials to their parents. Is there anyway you can check & see if all of the edits have been accepted? I'm getting confused by trying to figure out who is who. Thank you so much for your help!

Mariah Margaret Stillwell Wright
Mariah Margaret (Mariah MC) Stillwell Wright and Richard Murphy (RW "Dick") Wright are buried at the Wright/Byrd Cemetery in Swain County, NC. This cemetery is on Watia Creek beyond the new YMCA camp. Please refer to The Cemeteries of Swain County. You can view a copy at the Swain County Government Building or I can mail or email a copy to you. I have been to the cemetery as have my mother and aunts. Mariah and Richard are my great-great grandparents.

According to the Macon County cemetery census, only two Wrights are buried in that Wright Cemetery, R H (Robert Henry) #97318452 and W M (William M) #973421055. These two and the other three Wrights are not familiar to me.

I would very much like to link my Great-grandfather, James S. Wright, #138836602 to his parents.

Find A Grave Memorial# 16029117
Mrs. Coon, please accept my apologies for not explaining why I asked that the parental information be removed for James L. Evans Find A Grave Memorial# 16029117. The obituary you placed on #16029117 cannot be possible because as indicated in the obituary notice, the person indicated lived from 1931 - 2008. Find-a-Grave #16029117 James L. Evans lived 1891 - 1930.
Again, please accept my apologies for confusing you.

Clarissa Webb Sutton
My name is Don Sutton. I am the third great grandson of Clarissa Sutton. It took me years to find this branch of my family. I have noticed your name attached to many of families markers as being the one responsible for the records. I just want to thank you. I know little about this branch of my family and perhaps this is just the beginning of learning more. She has many great grandchildren in Texas.

Best Regards
Don Sutton

McHan cemetery
Hi JoAnn: I see you have originated the memorials for some of the McHan family buried there. My maiden name is McHan and it is such a kick to see a cemetery with the same name. If you are anywhere near could you please take a photo of the place? I see someone has been waiting for 3 years to get a photo of Julia Jarrett's marker. But if you are in another state or something, it's quite all right, not to worry, of course we can get by without it. Wish I could do it but I'm in California. thanks, Susan

Nancy Clark chastain
Eli chastain is my gg grandfather. I have just inherited very old pictures of Eli that I can identify some I cannot. I also have a picture of her and a young boy. I think you may have the same picture.I would love to share copies An any help to identify my family. It would be a shame to not identify these photos An Their identity lost to the next generation.

21386667 Mary Jane (Bryson) Young Lanning
Aunt Mary was the daughter of Walter Lee Young. Walter died in Dec 1922 and Mary was born Jan 1923. Her Mother, Lillian M Creswell married Gus Bryson sometime later. I have not be able to find a copy of their marriage as of yet. Aunt Mary never claimed the Young Family as hers, Was told she always felt the Bryson's were better off than the Youngs so, she claimed to be a Bryson. This only becomes relative if someone is trying to prove their DNA.
