Memorial# 67954452
One Guy T. Ferguson's memorial, you give entire birth and death dates. Since these are not on his marker, where did you get them? You have him born Sept 8, 1900 but marker has 1906. In my data I have he died on Nov 30, 1980 but this could be in error. Guy Ferguson was my Uncle and I would like to confirm his correct information. Thanks. Jean Taylor

Ashland (TX) cemetery
Dear Bonnie, The location of the Ashland cemetery is wrong. It is listed as Gilmer, when it is in Ashland. Since Ashland no longer has a post office, the closest town is Diana 75640. We are trying to get that changed to Diana. Trisha, The Spirit Chaser seems to think it was set up by MB, who has passed now. Will you go in and see if you can change the location. Thanks Mary

Are you in any way related to Moses F. Aaron in Memorial# 7135304? If so he is my 3x great grandfather and would love to share info. I haven't been able to trace that particular line back further than him.

Mary E. Hitt
Hello, Bonnie. I've been looking into my Hitt family members, lately. I ran across Alfred V. Hitt, and his marriage to an apparent cousin, Mary E. Hitt.

My question is, in regards to carrying her last name on the memorial as "Pool," instead of "Hitt?" Her marriage to James Pool lasted for a couple of years, from August 1865 until his death in 1867. She married Alf in about 1872, and bore all his children, passing in 1901. As awkward as it might seem, shouldn't her memorial be carried as "Hitt" since that was her last husband, and it is on her marker?

I can't prove it very well, but I think her middle name was Emma. I gathered that off of her son, Clifton's D/C. If that is true, it also says that her maiden name was Harris. I leave that up to you, of course. You have noted that Mary was the daughter of Lazarus and Ruth Hitt. I suspect you are correct from what I've seen. I'll dig out some records, soon.

Thanks for all your good work. This is a fun hobby, isn't it? regards, pete

No reply on transfer requests.
Hi Bonnie, I have sent transfer requests but I don't know if they are going through. I sent one in September and another in October. If you are related and do not wish to transfer, I completely understand. Can you please send me a message to let me know either way so I can stop requesting? #8993455 & #8993450
Thank you so much,
Cher Cunningham

Margareta Overton - Memorial# 58433268 - Follow Up
Bonnie, I'm just following up on the message below which I left for you back in October. Can you contact me when you have a moment? My email address is



Message from October 15th:

Bonnie, hello. It looks like you created this memorial back in 2010. Since you have exact dates for birth and death in the memorial, do you know whether there is an actual headstone in this cemetery (Middleburg Cemetery, Hardeman County, TN) for Margareta, containing this information? If not, do you know where you got the information for her birth and death dates?

Also, you have the following note in the memorial: "Wife of E.H. Overton". Again, I assume this information is coming from a headstone. Can you confirm that?

I believe Margareta Overton may be my 3rd great grandmother, and am trying to piece together information to confirm this. Do you happen to have any other information relating to her? Are you one of her descendants by chance?

Thanks in advance for your help!
