Strange to see the last name of Cherry. My cousin's maiden name was Cherry.

Dear IncredibleGranny, Tip: If you shorten the underscoring lines within the body of your journal, everyone will be able to read your family tree data.

I was wondering if you have an obit for carl davis wife. I see you don't have her listed. I have His obit but can not seem to find hers.

Dear Incredigranny,
As I was exploring the Salvaton Army Camp Walter Johnson in Denton, NC, my friends and I stumbled upon an old graveyard. Almost all the markers were unmarked, but one had a name-Sarah Davis. She was born in 1845 and died in 1888. Is this the same Sarah Davis that you think was born around 1847? There is also a footmarker that has SD on it.
