If you have a better headstone photo, please add it.

RE: Sarah Louise Searle
Perry Hampton, born abt 1821 in KY, died 2 March 1867 in Coon Rapids, Carroll County, IA. (WPA Records for Iowa) Civil war pension records show Sarah Seale as a minor child of Perry Hampton,Co. B, 39 Infantry, MO (which matches the Coon Rapids cemetery records.) Please feel free to contact me privately if you would like more information.

I can never thank you enough for assisting me in straightening out the Cleo Agnes/Agnes C mess!

You are an amazing and determined researcher with a knack for honing in on and harrowing out those tasty little bits of information that we all thrive on!

I respect your skills immensely!

In addition, you have created, maintained and photographed a VERY respectable number of memorials on Find A Grave which assists not only me, but thousands of families.

Thank you so much - you humble me!

Diane: I added a photo to this memorial. But the date of birth is off. If you think I have the right person, I'll leave the photo on your memorial. If you think that she is different, I'll create a new memorial with my photo. Let me know what you'd prefer. - Kevin

RE: James John Pruitt (#154385006)
The plaque says 'Endowed' which means he or a direct descendant put money into a fund for some kind of care (or flowers) for the grave.
