link to son
Boyd, would you mind linking Ann "Nancy" Spruill 1252422012 to her son Tulley 86489533 ? Both tombstones are spelled with an E, but Nathan's estate file has them as Nancy and Tully.

Thanks a lot. Holley

Spruill relationship
Boyd, I sent an email to the gmail address too, but wanted to post here in case you don't check that address or still have it.

I have been working on the Spruill lines for DAR and have quite bit of information to share. I Am a descendant of Tully and Mahala Freeman. I obtained the estate file of Nathan and want to verify the identity of his widow, Nancy. The only marriage I can find for Nathan is to Ann Phelps, and I think Nancy is a nickname for the same woman. My uncle Wesley Robinson has dates of birth and death for Nancy and says she is also buried in Spruill Cemetery. Since you posted all the memorials there, I'm wondering if you saw a tombstone for her?? Would love to hear from you.

Thank you for adding the bits of biographical information and parental links to the memorial of Marie Remer [née Simpson] Young; who is buried in Poplar Creek Cemetery in Poplar Creek, Mississippi.

Boyd, it is thanks to individuals like you; who's contributions here at Find-a-Grave are invaluable to individuals like me doing family research. ~ with appreciation & a Happy New Year, George Gaston

RE: Betty Alford
Yes, she is buried in Chestuee Cemetery beside her parents (I realized that I had forgotten to mention that she was not listed on Find A Grave right after I had sent that first message). I will take a photo of the headstone next time I am out that way.
