Ruth Mary & Rose Mary Hare
Would you please be so kind as to upload a copy of the photo you provided for the memorial of Ruth Mary #8781576 to the memorial for her twin sister which I have just created, # 181270278? They share a stone so the same photo will work for both, and I would like you to retain credit for the photo. Thank you!

Moses Dunlap Stephenson
Hi Ben,
I have an ancestor, Julia A. Stephenson, a daughter of Moses Dunlap Stephenson and Mary Francis Blanton. Julia was born circa 1833 in TN. She married Newton Gilbert on Mar. 6, 1855 in Bonham, Fannin County, TX. She died between 1855-1857 in most likely Fannin, County. I'm wondering if you may have any more information regarding her. I'd surely like to know when she died and where she is buried. Newton Gilbert remarried in July 2, 1857 in Gainesville, Cooke County, Texas. Thank you for your time.

Corrie Family

I just found William D and Olive Mouser Corrie and their 2 daughters, Ethel and Mildred.

William, Olive and Ethel all have the same burial date. Looks like it may have been an accident of some kind.

All 4 are buried in Crown Hill

Ada Opal Sharkey Corrie

I found a death date for Ada - 04/05/1907. She died in Greenfield, IN.

I contacted a member of the Sharkey family and he knew of her death date but that just about covers it. My guess is you could get a death certificate and it might shed some light on where she is buried. Robert stills remains a mystery as does wife #2.

Rebecca Tinkle

Info on Rebecca Corrie and Gerald Tinkle is now on Find A Grave. I have control of Gerald if you want it. I also looked up some info on Guy and Reba Tinkle and hopefully additions will be added soon.

Is Jane Corrie still alive? Will we ever know what happened to Robert Andrew Corrie?

Merry Christmas.
