Bio and Links
I love genealogy. I am researching Sherwood, Brentlinger, Sykes, Hendryx/Hendricks in Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee. I hope I haven't offended anyone by flowers that I have put on graves. I think it is nice to add flowers to graves and especially those that have never gotten any flowers.

Thanks so much to everyone for the flowers, notes and tokens left for my aunt, Martha Ann Wells,(Oklahoma) my mama,Sadie Stumpf,step-father John(California)and grandparents Melissa Mae & James E. Sherwood (Oklahoma). Your kindness and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.

^^^^William R. Sherwood is the oldest child of James and Melissa (Hendryx) Sherwood.^^^^

***I do not know at this time if the Brentlingers, the ones without sponsors, that have been transferred to me are ancestors of mine or not. I just agreed to take them because it is my Father's surname and I do have ancestors from Indiana.***

~~~~~~A very warm thank you to all of you who visit my loved ones and leave flowers, tokens and/or notes. I appreciate it so very much~~~~~~

Elizabeth Going
Could you give me any information on Elizabeth? She would be my 2nd grandmother. I cannot find anything on her or her parents. Why did she die so young? If you can give me any info I would be very grateful.

Thank You,
Linda Weldner

Charles S Sykes
Hello Carolyn, Thank you for leaving the flowers for my great great uncle Charles. As far as I know he never married and had no children so very unlikely that he is related to any Sykes you are researching. My great uncle Victor and my uncle Thomas Sykes are the only members of our family who lived outside New York. Victor lived many years in Texas and Thomas is living in Arkansas.
Regards and good luck with your research.

Find A Grave Memorial# 21099648
Hello, I see you have left quite a few flowers for Sadie Jewell Sherood, Find A Grave Memorial# 21099648. Is she a direct ancestor of yours? I ask because I have submitted edits to connect her to her parents, and to fix her death date (Death certificate states several times it was Dec 16, cemetery records say Dec 15. Death certificate presumed more accurate).

I have 2 more generations than just her father and mother if you are interested. Findagrave doesn't have burial locations for her grandparents or great grandparents. Just let me know and I will tell you what I have. Thanks - Beth Martin

Rosa Brentlinger
Hi Carolyn

Rosa Brentlinger (findagrave 120089542) was my 3rd grade teacher in Wichita, Ks. Her husband, William Brentlinger, was also a teacher, but I never met him, but they were friends of my grandmother. I think how you place flowers on the memorials is great, especially those who have no flowers.

Baby Boy Wilder
I was wondering if you had any other information you could share regarding Baby Boy Wilder? I noticed that the parents were listed as Duane E Wilder and Jay Thomas Wilder. Do you have any more information on the baby or the parents? I think that Duane fits into a family tree I am helping a friend build. Thank you.
