My direct line ancestors are sponsored. Most other sponsorships are for extended family members who passed without descendants.

For transfers or to provide additional information/links or to correct an error, please use the "Edit" tab found at the upper right of each memorial. Findagrave will notify me and provide a link directly to the Memorial. Thank you!

How to format with bold & italics:

How to create Bold text:
To create bold text in your Find A Grave memorials or on your home page you need to first type < and next TYPE the letter b with no space and then type > NEXT TYPE THE TEXT THAT YOU WANT IN BOLD PRINT and at the end of what is to be in bold TYPE < no space then / then b then > with no spaces in between them.

How to create Italics text:
You can also do the same thing with italics by switching out the b and replace with i (for italics) using the same procedure.

Or you can do both bold & italics by adding both the corresponding HTML codes one following the other with no space. Try it!

Joan Pacitti
Mary Hornish's memorial
Hi: I received your information about Mrs. Hornish and I added the information on her site.

When I opened your link, I noticed your great advice on how to get bold script in my memorials.
Sometimes when people enter a plot number or transcription in bold, I didn't know how to do that, so I could only put it in the regular way.
Now at least I know how to do that.

Take care.

Terry, Goodman, Wallace Baxley families
Jo, Thank you for the bio and information on Gus Terry. I had been wanting information about him for some time now. If you have any other information on him i would love to see it. Margaret Goodman Wishart Terry was my ggg aunt. For your information her daughter Annabel Wishart Lane a nationally known genealogist in the 1950 and 60"s. If you check out the Wishart Papers which are on line from the UNC library. the outdoor drama Strike at the Wind is about the Lowery gang and the Wishart family. I noticed that you were also doing research on the Baxley family. They are also related to the Goodmans thru Ida Wallace who was my grandmother's sister. you have opened up several avenues on parts of my family I had little information on
Thanks Again
Ron Goodman

Bertha Baxley McDonald was my American History teacher in Iowa Park, Texas in 1965, when I was a senior. She really cared about her students. Thank you for adding her Memorial.

Ida Marks McDonald
Hi Jo, can you give some documentation to Ida McDonald being born in Stanly County? I was sent a prior edit for her being born in Mississippi, and the 1910 and the 1930 census both say Mississippi. The 1920 census states NC. I assumed the edit was from someone researching that family. Thanks.

RE: Little Oscar Long Dead
Thanks for adding the obit. You see what I mean about it being so sweet. The flower you added was pitch-perfect also. Thanks again, Lily

Little Oscar Long Dead
Dear Jo Terry, I came across this headline when doing research on Chronicling America. They really needed a comma after Long. Anyhow, it was the sweetest obituary for a little 2 yr. old who died in 1918. I would love for it to be added to his memorial#72112795, which you created. Would you like me to send it as a SAC edit or you could transfer and I could type it in and transfer back to you as I don't want the memorial. Then, of course, you could decide what you think. Lily

Thanks for the help on the edit. I live in eastern Moore County. If you need any help in this area, will be glad to help.
