Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Name is Ronald A. Sykes, Sr, and have been working on my family History for over 40 years.

Any additional information, adding bio's, changing .or adding names, dates and location can be done, without asking me, by hitting the edit button.

With the new system of FaG, I OK the links, and changes, without question. However, this also means, I may or may not have linked or corrected memorials.

I am more than happy to any correct a problem, or link family members. As far as Transfer goes, please look at the rules set down by Find a Grave, before asking. I will take a look on a case to case basis, but normally follow those rules. Demands from, or rude people are always ignored. If you would like credit for something added, either put it in the bio section, or let me know and I will add it for you.

I normally make all requests within 24 hours. If not, don't worry, I will get to it. Sometimes, I take a day off, too.

AGAIN. I follow the rules of Find A Grave dealing with Transfers. I will make an exception on a case to case bases. However, those who are rude, or feel they have some kind of right, need not request.

You My permission to use any of my Headstone photo, for your personal use.

William Warren Rawls (1878-1958)
I am looking for William's mother Rebecca Ball Rawls. I think she might be buried in Pleasant Valley Cemetery but there is no way to leave messages on that grave site. If anyone has knowledge or information of Rebecca I would appreciate your help. She is a long lost relative. Thanks.

Benton Links (See Message Below)
I think I have all those links ironed out, thanks to another contributor and some family tree info online. I am transferring management of those memorials so if you find any errors, let the new manager know.
Thanks again,
A. Clark

Roxie Benton #84075484
I need your help with a memorial. I have noted that you provided Roxie's middle/maide name "Daisy Bright" and her link to spouse, George T. Benton, and child, Missie Mae Benton Thames. I have received another request linking George to spouse, Daisy Dean Benton (#84075481) whose stone looks just like George's. Both ladies died in the 1940s and it seems odd that he would marry two ladies with the name "Daisy" and maiden name "Bright". I'm very confused. The other Daisy (#84075481) has the name "Daisy Dean Bright Benton" on her stone and the 1910 & 1920 Census records seem to link her to George Tilton (and children). There is also a Simpson County marriage record that seems to correspond with the 1910 Census records also. Is it possible that Roxie was NOT George's wife and Missie Mae's mother? Awaiting your input before I delete links. Thanks in advance for your help and all you do on Find A Grave.

Wright Barker
Wright's brother, Frank Barker, told me that Wright had been buried near Hugo, Colorado, but his grave was trampled by a herd of cattle and his grave could not be located after that.

You are in my thoughts
May you receive the best care possible for your health issues. Wondering why you were sending me so many edits over the last few days, then I see your note to my cousin, Betty. You were inspiring to me when I first started contributing here.

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I Care,

Find A Grave Memorial# 41943457
First, thank you for all the work that you have done. It take a lot of time to do. But I want to correct the maiden name of Bertie A. SMADING Meadows, not Bertie A. Sanding Meadows. I don't know whether you got the wrong name from a list or the tombstone was wrong, but please change the spelling on the heading. Thank you!
