Zena..thanks for the hug..can always use those. But I want you to do me a favor. Please add my Uncles name to those credits you were talking about. His name is Richard McDaniel. He still lives in Cherry Valley and he has been the one actually going out and digging in the dirt for the stones. I tell him what we have been searching for and he has done the foot work to help you. I have never given his name because he is a very private man but I asked him tonight if I could PLEASE tell you about him. And he said "of course" that he has enjoyed the search and that he will keep looking for more names. Even though I still consider Cherry Valley my home town I have not lived there in a long time. I just go back to see family and now days I go back to do cemetery searching with him. I am very proud of my uncle..he has made sure that alot of people don't get forgotten. I am also very proud that I have met you. Someone who understands the value of knowing about those who came before you. I also want you to know that your people are resting in a good place..I should know..my little boy is buried across the road from them. They can look after one another! Happy Thanksgiving!!
