Doss/Dossie Young
I hope you can help me with the Young family. My grandmother's first marriage was to (and this may be a nick name) Dossie Young. He was killed while falling a tree. I was told by grandmother that he was a lumberman.

She was expecting their first baby at the time but had a miscarriage after the shock of his death. I have been searching for Dossie's grave for the longest time.

Grandmother: Rhodie Bertha Marsh

Name: Doss Young
Gender: Male
Residence:Deckerville, Arkansas
Spouse's Name: Rodie Marsh
Spouse's Gender: Female
Spouse's Residence: Deckerville, Arkansas
Marriage Date: 21 Jan 1914
Event Type: Marriage Bond
FHL Film Number: 1024549

After Dossie died, she married James Robert Kemp

Other interesting facts:
1. Rhodie's older brother was Oscar Lee Marsh. His second marriage was to Beulah Webber, Widow of Luther C. Lillard. She and Luther had many children. Luther was shot and killed by a neighbor during an argument over a chicken that was in the neighbor's yard. There was a big write up in the newspapers.
2. Oscar's obituary list the Lillard children as his step children

Any clue about Dossie's grave?
His parents are listed as Eli Young and Laura R. Webber

Charles Skinner Graves
Could someone please get to Cherry Hill Cemetery, Greenville, Pitt Co., NC and take care of Charles Skinner, Jr. and Charles Skinner, Sr's graves before they're completly swallowed up by the grass! I've seen it happen, and before long, you won't even know the stones are there.

Just wanted to let you know, the Dunning Cemetery that you listed these family members in is Defunct, and all of these memorials are duplicates, and need to removed. Sorry & Thanks.

Rowan Cemetery
Hello John, Thank you for posting Rowan Cemetery in Kentucky. Are you related to Rowan family or have information on those buried there? I have great-great grandfather Andrew Rowan who married in St Louis, MO and died in Vienna, Missouri. Wondered if they are related. Thanks.

RE: Robert Gilford Brooks
Thank you so much, John, for all of the information. Do you happen to have a picture of Myrtle? Do you know how Edgar East died? Robert is my great uncle.

RE: Young graves, Filer Cemetery
They refer to the "address" of the grave. My daughter and I transcribed the Filer Cemetery by using some paper work the care taker had and then going stone to stone to imput or correct the information. When we uploaded the plot information there were 3 numbers. I believe for the plot area, row, number. Find a grave only put 1 number in the plot then randomly put the other 2 numbers in the headstone and note category. These numbers can be deleted. The basic plot number is correctly input under plot. I hope that clarifies these random numbers.
