Are the #'s for the year of her birth transposed? Could it be 1869? Thanks

Revised Request
I just saw where you won't do transfers. In that case, can you make changes? John E. Puckett's (#96883705) middle name was Ephraim. Thanks.

Transferring Ownership
I am the great grandaughter of John E. Puckett (#96883705) and Lucy Swan Puckett (#96884387). I was wondering if you could transfer them to me. Thanks.

Hello, Would you please correct the name on memorial 54138345. The name should be Margaret "Gettie" Brown Nichols. A name change was submitted about 18 days ago but I don't know if this was the change since I did not submit it. Gettie & William Henry Nichols are my great grandparents.

Memorial# 81286460
Please change the information on this memorial for James Hughes West. He was not a "Jr." His father was Jefferson West and his mother was Dovie Hughes West. They came to Tennessee when James was two years old, as it says in his obituary that was passed down in my family.
Some people have the wrong information about him, but I have documentation as well as what was passed down in the family. He was also a captain in the civil war.
If you need more proof, I can provide it. But he is in no way related to Elizabeth Liggett or this other James West listed as "Sr."

James Hughes West (not JR.)
James Hughes West (81286460) was the son of Jefferson West and Dovie Hughes of Iredell Co, NC. He is not a "Jr.". I made another memorial for him with the correct information, including the obituary from the newspaper at that time.

His wife was Sophia Ann (Neil) West. James Hughes West is my 2nd great grandfather and I know these facts to be true. I corrected it once before and now I find that it has been changed back.
I have informed Wendy and James Corcoran of this before. Please change the information to reflect the truth or just remove it.

Lettice Winn
You have Lettice as the child of Minor Winn; do you have a source for that. I was asked by a LONG time Winn research to unhook that connection because there is no evidence to support that. She is not mentioned in Minor's will or any other documentation.

Elexander "Alex" Shelton
I am wondering if this is not William Alexander Shelton, son of Leroy Shelton and Mary Dean who died in 1948. I have William Alett Shelton, son of John Shelton and Mary Haynes date of death as 1846. Sooo many Sheltons but check out Tennessee Deaths and Burials. I think John Shelton and Mary Haynes were in Wayne County. Alexander is with Leroy and Mary in Alabama in 1880; cannot find him in 1900 but he and Ella White Brooks married in Giles in 1897 then are in Texas in 1910 but back to Lawrence County by 1920.
I am still checking on who is who.
Thanks for all your hard work.

Barbara N. Clark
Leroy Shelton's sister, Virginia Queen Victoria Shelton was my great grandmother.
