RE: Emma Peters Day
Greetings Donna,
Thank you for bringing all this to my attention.
I recall being informed of a pre-existing memorial for Emma (Peters) Day soon after I acquired the duplicate, but I misplaced some important information, which stalled my research, and prevented my acting on this matter.
I have contacted Find A Grave concerning the duplicate, and they have to review the details and delete it, as I haven't the ability to delete a memorial created by another contributor.
Also, 'Thank You' for the headstone images you uploaded for Marshall Emery Day, and wife Ethel.
I have approved your edits, and it was my obvious intent to link them myself, but this too was delayed because of the duplicate memorial.
FYI, Emma Peters was the youngest sister of my great-grandmother Mary Louella (Peters) Cox (1874-1968).
Lesson learned here is to research any memorial prior to a transfer request!
Thanks again.

RE: Cortez Garrett
My contention they married in 1953 is INCORRECT.
In fact he married MARY ALMOND in 1953....says so on their headstone!

Couple this with the fact that Glennie Lee died 12 Aug 1949 and the sequence becomes plausible.

Now, looking at the 1940 census record Cortez is living in Bienville Parish. It shows him still living with his parents.

Glennie Lee is also there in 1940, working as a practical nurse and living as a boarder with the Fletcher family.

To confuse things further: there's a Cortez Garrett attending military nursing school in Shreveport (Caddo Parish) in 1944! However, the birth date on that records shows 1919..probably not him.

Some records have a middle name of Theodore -- I have nothing to verify that is correct.

Finally, the Louisiana Death record shows Glennie Lee Garrett as Negro! I do not believe that to be accurate....not uncommon for Louisiana's record keeping.

Conclusion: I don't have hard proof...just circumstantial evidence. Probably the best way to proceed would be the other "Cortez Garrett", see what can be attached to him.

RE: Cortez Garrett
The only documentation I'm aware of is the engraving of her headstone: "Wife of Cortez Garrett".

I'm inclined to treat headstone engraving as authoritative.

Saw you on "Gone Gravin"'s list of friends. I got an edit email from him/her, but there's no way to respond - no email, messages disabled. Can you help me out?
