Kerby cemetery in Fulton co, AR
I think my ancestor Wm Campbell b.1815 TN is buried in Kerby cemetery. I understand many plots in Kerby cem (also known as Mansfield-Kerby have stones that are no longer readable. Do you have access to all persons buried there? I would love to find William. We think he died between 1881 and 1899. Thank you.

Pvt John Benjamin McLain #64369094
I was working on updating my family (McLain's) family file when I found this findagrave memorial. Are you sure he is buried here in Fairview, because he is not listed in the Fulton County cemeteries book in Fairview. There is another memorial with him buried in the Roberts cemetery along with his wife, Mary Elizabeth (M. E. Roberts) McLain. I am almost 100% sure he is buried there and not in Fairview. Maybe you can merge your info on to that memorial.

Joseph Thomas Hutson. This is my great-grandfather. I added a picture of his tombstone to the memorial page, but could not get the page to update to add the cemetery. He is buried in Duty Cemetery in Randolph County, AR

Nancy Anderson Cypert

Are you related to Nancy Anderson Cypert? If so do you know if she had a daughter by the name of Emeline? I cant seem to find confirmation Emeline's parents, however a historian studying the dealth stated she had records of Emeline being the daughter of Nancy Anderson Cypert.

Thank you for such complete records for Charles Goetting and wife Adolphine Alberding. They are ancestors of my daughter-in-law. I have traced them in Germany and have visited their villages where I met researchers living in those villages. Charles was born in Mühlhausen bei Twiste, Waldeck, Germany, but grew up in Wellen, Waldeck, where his family had lived for some generations. His birth name was Christian Karl Philipp Götting. Adolphine was born Karoline Adolphine Alberding and was born in Langenthal, Hessen. I have info for several generations of their ancestors.

Thank you again for your thorough information on Find a Grave.

Jessie Walker #115590530 Plans to be buried there when her days are done.
I just got a messare from Mrs Walker about some of our Flynn Family. She is alive and I thought you should know. Thanks for all the good work you do.

I was wondering if you or someone you know might take a picture of the New sign and New fence at the Fryatt Cemetery. Can we keep a picture of the old one also?

Dear Sir,

You commented on the Findagrave page for the above mentioned person about his rank in the Civil War. By chance would you happen to have any further info regarding him? I am trying to find a picture of him especially. Please let me know if you have anything further.

I read that you have my ancestor listed as having attended the Confederate reunion in Little Rock, do you have a document stating that? I do know, but don't have documentation, that he was at the Springfield, MO reunion in 1898 (I think). I do have him listed as being a Manager of the Confederate Veterans Home in Higginsville towards the end of his life. Thanks!
