Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been searching since 1995. I haven't had any formal training but I've logged a lot of hours.

If you want to request a transfer of a memorial that is not one of my relatives, please go to the memorial and click on the "Edit" tab at the top right of the memorial. Then, click on the "Suggest a correction" link to send an email. It is important to use this link as the email will include a link to the memorial AND your Find A Grave member #, both of which are required before a transfer can be made. This way, I can be sure I am transferring the correct memorial to the correct person. Also, please state your relationship to the individual AND include your email address in case I have questions and/or need to contact you.

Charles Ezra Ball Sr
Do you know if Charles Ezra Ball Sr ever served in the military? And if so when did he serve. We are trying to locate veterans buried in the Bryan City Cemetery. Thanks for your help.

Saphronia E. Walden
Your FindA Grave record indicates two husbands, Hogan and Marbury for Saphronia E. “Fronia” Walden Hogan. Separate 1880 Census records for Lower Lafave, Yell County Arkansas exist for Sophrona and George Marbury, and Eliza and Frances Hogan, each with their own set of children who were born during the same general time frame. In the same census records, you can see that these women’s parents were born in Georgia (Saphrona) and South Carolina (Eliza) respectively. These are two different women, which taken together with the tombstone information, suggest that we may have gotten two different women involved in your FindAGrave record. Since my Saphronia E. Walden’s parents were born in Georgia, I think she married a Marbury rather than a Hogan. Census records for her early years indicate that she was born in 1849 or 1850, so on that basis alone it could go either way.

Do you have additional documents or information that bear on this situation? If so, I would be interested.

Clayton Ball WWII Killed in action
Clayton Ball is listed in the National Archives WWII Honor List of Dead and Missing Army and AAF Personnel as a resident of Lee County, Texas. From the 1930 and 1940 US Census records he was enumerated as a citizen of Harris county, son of John L and Tennie Ball. His brother, James Vann Ball, was also in these census records of that family. James is not shown in the National archives as a Lee county resident. Do you have any information on why Clayton is so listed 9e.g. enlisted in Lee county, drafted while living there, etc?

I'm doing some work on Lee county casualties and would like to be able to fill in the record.

Please check your edits page. I edited the birth and death dates for William Holloway Pettey, as confirmed by his death certificate and headstone. Need you to approve the edit. Thanks.

Reed Children
Hey Tom,

Thank you very much for the Reed Children. Means quite a lot to me.

Also appreciate you creating their gravesites as I don't think I would have ever found them.

Best Regards,
