RE: Jose/Joseph Toll/Tolle
Thank you for getting back to me. You make a good point. I have submitted edits requesting the First Name be changed to Joseph, the Nickname be made Jose, the Last Name be Tolle, and the Bio include that Joseph Tolle was also known as Joseph Toll.

These requested edits are according to Find A Grave's Memorial Naming Conventions and make the assumption that Jose is a nickname.

Harold Bowman Memorial
Thank you for sending me information about Harold. He is my grandfather and I was shocked I had missed adding his information. I have more links to add and will do so soon. Thank you for bringing him to my attention.

The pages you cite for Rachel Ann BANKS Sanders are not for the Sanders Cemetery. The 1972 edition of the McBrides' book shows the Sanders Cemetery on pp. 407-408. The McBrides do not show Rachel Ann buried in the Sanders Cemetery. Nonetheless, this is a nice memorial with lots of good family connections!

RE: More re Venie Hatfield/Stultz
Jay, thank you. I feel you're more educated than me on this subject and appreciate the courtesy you gave me regarding Venia Hatfield Stultz memorial. I will continue working on this and see what I can come up with. Thank you again. Jennifer

RE: Wright family of Sandwich, Mass
Yes, I'm involved. Our male line is this Sandwich, MA family so my uncle did a ydna test. We don't match with any other Wrights, but do have a match to another surname (just uncertain where that NPE is, likely with these guys I'm looking for). We've also done autosomal testing and I'm working through all of those matches, but nothing yet to id these two men or discredit the family commentary documented in a book in the 1800's. I'm on the FTDNA Wright project and the new Facebook Wright DNA group (if you don't know about it). I'm sure there's a rock I haven't turned over yet, so I'll keep looking.

RE: Wright family of Sandwich, Mass
No worries. I couldn't paste in a pic. here. I don't have the membership thing either, it was just a cached version that I saw. If you're not related to the New England Wrights, I understand. I'll keep digging around. There are just sooooo many Wrights :-).
