Contributor Connie posted this. I thought it was such a great idea I posted it to my page! Thanks, Connie!
Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits! Unfortunately, there are far too many members for Find a Grave to notify everyone via email, so it's up to us to get the word out. If every member posts this message (or similar) in their profile, hopefully we can help spread the word.
To suggest a correction (SAC) click on the edit tab of the memorial that needs to be corrected. Then click on the link which best describes where your edit should occur. Enter your correction, when you're done, click submit edit. Your request will be sent to the manager of the memorial and will appear in the managers' profile under the Edits tab.
Managers will no longer receive emails. They must go directly to their profile page and click on the Edits tab. Managers can approve, deny or ignore, suggested corrections. It's quick and easy!
Requesting a transfer other corrections are still handled the same way. Click on "suggest any other correction or addition," type your message and press "send this message." The manager of the memorial will receive an email.

Just got this additional info: The reference I sent is no long active on Rootsweb. Here is a reference to a book that makes the same claim that her name was Carolina:
The Governors of Georgia, 3rd ed, James F. Cook; pg 178, John Brown Gordon
Google Books : John Brown Gordon: Soldier, Southerner, American
By Ralph Lowell Eckert, pg 12
Footnote: The Gordon's had six children : Hugh b 1855, Frank b 1857, Frances b 1863, John Jr b 1865, Caroline Lewis b 1873, and Carolina b 1877

Response from The Meriwether Society, Inc. [Note - I can't get link to open.] :
Yes, Gen. & Mrs Gordon had a daighter named CarolinE Lewis Gordon, born in 1872. However, according to several sources, one of which I show here, the daughter born in 1877 was indeed named CarolinA Gordon:
1162. R. LaRue, “Southwest Mississippi Kinfolk,” http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=r-larue.
"Even though John and Fannie already had a daughter named Caroline, his friends prevailed on them to name her Carolina because of his services to South Carolina."
I have no further evidence to support or dispute this, so do as you wish. Always safe to go with cemetery records.

Sorry for the late response, I've been on vacation. I went back through all my edit requests, and found that the name change was give to me by The Meriwether Society, Inc. (#46827721). As both the cemetery record and obituary say only "infant", I have changed it back to that. I've also left a message for the original editor, to ask if they have any further info (documentation).

|Elizabeth ||RE: McNair/Epperson|
Amy Jean is the person who maintains the memorial for Clement Vann McNair. His memorial number is 33249781.
|Elizabeth ||RE: McNair/ Epperson|
I was responding to a comment from you (I believe) on the page of Amy Jean, my niece. Your comment said you were researching Charles Epperson whose mother was a daughter of Clement and Martha McNair. My reply was to clarify that the Epperson family were descended from Martha McNair's first marriage to Robert Smith. Her daughter Ceretta Smith married Epperson and apparently they had a daughter also named Ceretta. I hope that is clear - let me know if you have any other questions.
|Vada L. Long||RE: Sarah Overman|
Thank you for the correction. I will fix these. Thanks again.
|Elizabeth ||McNair/ Epperson|
I am a descendant of Clement Vann McNair and have done a lot of research on family history. Ceretta Epperson was not McNair's biological grandchild. She was descended from McNair's wife, Martha Childers, and her first husband, Robert Smith. Martha came west with her 3 daughters: Lucy, Ceretta and Celesta Smith and married McNair. Ceretta married an Epperson and her daughter, who I deduce from your message was also named Ceretta, ended up living with CV and Martha McNair. There is a family photo of him as an old man with a little girl standing next to him, who I knew was the daughter of one of the Smith girls who lived with him so must have been Ceretta.
|Lance Burnett||RE: Ira Prince photo|
You're welcome! Glad to do it anytime.
|ron baublitz||RE: Memorial 157245314|
thanks for all of your work. i tried to see if i could see grace in the remains of the stone but couldn't so i added your thought there. if they are in your family you could call or email the cemetery and find out who is in the plot with william and figure it out for sure that way.
|Cristy||RE: James Hopkins|
You are very welcome. Happy to go find him and her!
