Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please do not send me edits wanting two last names in the last name box. Only one last name and that is the last name on the tombstone and other names listed in the bio. Maiden name box should be the Maiden name box and nothing else. When you send me an edit, I have to be able to find that info also and if I can't, you may have to send me proof.I do not add military titles unless it was their lifelong career but I always put photos of military markers at the top of the page.

Hi Joy. I found the above memorial via It may ne helpful to add the name "Zilphia" to it. I don't know if there is a way to do this. Because so many records for her show "Zilphia" as her first name, it maybmak her easier to find. Just a thought.
Thank you,
KD Johns

If you would like complete copies email me your address and I will send them snail mail. Joy Favors.

In regards to the above subject. I would like a copy of the mentioned letters/information. My GGGM was Tennessee Elizabeth McKinney, Reuben McKinney's granddaughter. My GM is about to turn 100 and I would like to be able to share this information with her. My address is: K.B.Sherwood, 524 S Alabama, Celina, TX 75009.

wife of Harry R Clark
Find A Grave# 104967939 Harry R Clark born 7/7/1939 in Lauderdale Co., AL and died 27 Aug 2010 Florence, Lauderdale Co., AL. Newspaper (Florence Times Daily) printed obit 8/31/2010. Can't find out about his wife. I thought she was Patricia A Donaldson, but the info said wife, Charlotte.
Did you do a Find A Grave memorial on his wife? Does the "R" in his name stand for Richard?
Can you help me with this? I would appreciate it so much.

multiple obits
Joy - thanks so much for letting me know about the multiple obits that posted. I've been told that this often happens when a photo is submitted but it appears to "time out" but often it does post after a while. But as we think it has stopped the posting process and we try to post it again, the multiple attempts eventually post and ends up with duplications.

I have deleted the duplication. Please do let me know if you notice this on any other memorials.

Hi Joy,

Thanks so much for updating my cousins' memorials. I know it must have taken a while because there were four of them. I really do appreciate the work you do for the Find a Grave community.

Thanks again,
Carol Barber Hudson
