Ms Hamby, thank you so much for your contribution for Pvt Ranson. What a lovely tribute. When you mentioned his name, I took another look at his stone and edited his name from Ransom to Ranson. Thanks again.

Barbara,first of all - thank you SO much for all the work you have done on Find A Grave. So much info for so many people! There are errors and omissions regarding my daddy, Lex Byron Wilson, in children listed and siblings. Since I recognize your name as opposed to the Barnett lady (who lives far away!),I am asking if I may send you information to add. My email is Thank you so much.

Evelyn Wiley
I have recently completed a photo survey of the Pool Wilkerson Cemetery which is located less than a mile from my home which includes the grave of Evelyn Wiley. Upon posting the picture I noticed you had listed as an ancestor. The cemetery is located on what is now a 500 ac. tract managed for timber (pines) and is in pretty bad shape with numerous large trees growing in it and several small trees and vines. I hope to be able to work on cleaning it up some soon but it will be a lot of work for an old man. Do you know of any relatives which still live in the area I might contact?

Also, I found at least 5 graves marked with only a stone, a concrete marker uningraved and, what I assume was the last grave, marked with a metal funeral home marker with no further information on it. Would you have any idea as to who these graves are?

Thank you,
Lee Brantley
