RE: Rebecca Shirah Hall picture
Sorry, Gurr not Glass. One of my issues with Find A Grave is you can't go back and correct messages...LOL.

RE: Rebecca Shirah Hall picture
You have a good eye. And as you know, there were dozens of Zachariah Washington Hall's during the day. I'm not so sure my "confirmed" information is correct. I found a profile on of a downline family member of the Glass family who shows that photo as being the younger Zach and wife Polly Glass, as you proposed. I'm waiting to hear from the association in Georgia who published the book and holds the Hall Family Reunions to see who the photo actually is. If incorrect, I'll delete it from both profiles. I always strive to be as accurate as possible. Thanks Jeff! :-)

RE: Rebecca Shirah Hall picture
Hey Jeff. I'm waiting on one more confirmation but here's what I've found out so far. The reunion that happens in Georgia is the "Decedents Of Zachariah Washington Hall Reunion". So they definitely know the man and what he looks like. These are all the downline of Washington and Rebecca. The photo in question comes from a published book called "The Halls Of Dooley County" and is captioned as Zachariah Washington Hall and his wife Rebecca Shirah Hall.

So that pretty much says that the picture is correct. It has been attached to another Zach Hall but that is an incorrect attachment.

Hope that helps. I've written to the association that runs the reunion and that should be the final confirmation for us.

Thanks and God bless...rob

Rebecca Shirah Hall picture
I'll definitely check it out. The names were associated with the picture that was provided by the Hall Family reunion. I'm not sure where that was but I'll see if I can come up with some more info. Thanks!

Rebecca Shirah Hall picture
Hey Jeff. The Hall family of Georgia has a big reunion every year. This was one of the pictures that they shared at one of the past reunions of their relatives up there (I'm in Florida). Rebecca Shirah Hall is my 3rd Great Grandmother. My Grandmother is Irene Hall who was born in the same area of Georgia before she moved to central Florida. The pic of Rebecca is a snip of the picture you'll see of her and her husband Zachariah Washington Hall, my 3rd Great Grandfather on his Find A Grave memorial. That's all I know but it was a great find and I love the picture of them together. Check it out....rob

Hi Jeff, I have found a few more people searching the Ratcliff line, hope to have more info soon. See Cornelia Ella Ratcliff and Franklin Adolphus Ratcliff, I put up a photo from my father's collection. I hope you are doing well!

RE: Hancock Cemetery Update
Thank you for letting me know. The last few times I was home, I have driven out that way looking for it. Could you let me know where it is exactly? Is it possible to visit it?

RE: Ivy Collins Shirah
I will try to get verification of that from the city clerk. The genealogical society has most of the records but they could not find her. The names can be confusing so I will try lots of combos. What name were they using on the death certificate?

RE: Ivy Collins Shirah
Are you sure that Ivy is in Woodlawn Cemetery in West Palm Beach. They do not seem to have any record for Ivy.

I forgot that my memorial did not have a cemetery. I added her mother and father. The siblings should show up when you approve the mother and father. I think this will combine the two. I will delete mine after I look at what gets added. Thanks for your help.
