Photo of John Wesley
Hi Ramona,

Thank you for all your contributions. They've been incredibly helpful and enjoyable to view. John Wesley Thompson, Sr. was my great grandfather and Daniel Thompson my grandfather. I never had the benefit of meeting any of my grandparents as they all had passed on prior to my birth. Your pictures have helped me to better connect to my past.

Do you know approximately the year the picture with great uncle John Wesley and uncle Trent was taken, as well as know any of the names of the children behind them? Also, if you have any additional pictures of John Wesley Sr., (and family) that would be wonderful.

Thanks again.

Hey Ramona!

I couldn't help but notice that you and I were matched pretty closely on my Family Tree DNA results. Immediately, I recognized your name from some of the Thompson family memorial pages here on Find A Grave. John Wesley Thompson, Jr.
(1893-1943) & Emma (nee Followay) were my paternal great-grandparents. Thanks for all of the info you've posted!

RE: 75035770 Stella Abshire Ward
This Stella Abshire that is buried on the Reynolds Cemetery has wrong information that I need to correct. I have double checked with one of my Ward cousins and I have have boo-booed on this one. The husband is James Willard Ward, but I have the parents wrong on my family tree maker and findagrave.
The parents are John and Elmina Murphy. Thank you so much for catching that.

I added your info to the memorial. I did not add the father link to this memorial but have removed it.

I added lots of memorials for Columbus Police Officers who died serving my hometown. My grandfather was a CPD Sgt, giving me a great respect for those who serve!

RE: Memorial #122648518 This Grover Cleveland Staton is not the father of Curtis Larry Staton
Connections are made from the child to the parent. I do not own the memorial for the child so you will have to contact the owner of his memorial. I did not make the connection. Sorry I can not help you.

John W. Withrow 1719-1795 Wife Mary Unknown

RE: William Howard Withrow

My grandfather was Ozro Lyle Withrow and was born in southern Oregon and died in Portland, Oregon and is buried at Rose City Cem. only a mile from where I was born and raised. I look forward to hearing back from you on any help that I can give to you.

Very Sincerely;

RE: William Howard Withrow

I have a huge amount of Withrows and you can ask me about the 2800 Withrows that I have in my data base and this info will probably be helpful to you.

Very Sincerely;

RE: 31323361 - John Ross
I think I have figured the John Ross'. The one w/ headstone w/ a 1909 DoD would be the headstone for your death certificate of 1911, married to Ibbey Fraley. Not the first time the headstone & Death certificate do not match. I deleted the 1909 memorial.

If you look at the headstone for Ibbey, you can see they match. I moved the photo & changed the dates.

The obituary, photo & death certificate for the 1935 DoD has its own memorial.

Thanks for clearing up my error.
