      So true Cuz Jewel, there is a lot of data that I did not have in my files I
      saw as I was transferring this information to Access 2010, I saw many of the
      same people that we have just had inquiries on, and of course these records
      are of such value when you look at all of them at one time, especially when
      we have the opportunity to add more maiden names to complete the wives
      family side. As with all of us this journey to understand and see how our
      ancestors lived and worked has been an exciting passage, with Clay, Ann, and
      of course all your great work cuz Jewel allows all of our list members able
      to utilize such a vibrant site that I must confess; other than my Lovelace
      site, has so much to offer the future researchers, must as it was when I
      join the list a decade ago.

      I hope all will look through the databases and see information that may not
      have been present when some of us started and stand back with pride that we
      have left such a mark for those to come after us. Tonight I prepare for my
      trip to West Los Angeles VA, oddly the VA here in Long Beach, even with its
      120 million dollar upgraded CATH Laboratory two years ago, cannot do
      stenting I am told due to being a school of medicine and has no "assigned"
      doctor to perform the surgery although a student did my exploratory. So the
      VA in West Hollywood (of course being disabled and unable to drive makes
      this a challenge of about 4 hours on the rapid transit here) must redo what
      they did three weeks ago (double the work and taxpayer dollars) to stent my
      heart once more, hopefully this repair will last another decade.

      Your prayers for a safe procedures are so appreciated and thank you so much
      for the compliment, from you it is a great honor.

      Cuz Jimmie

      Yes, Jimmie, you are just another one who has worked very hard along with
      Clay and Ann to make us all happy to know that the information is being
      recorded and taken care of in Jackson County. And for that I am very
      thankful. I'm sorry if I sounded ungrateful to you because my feelings were
      not directed towards you at all.

      I said nothing at all about the database on the Clay cemetery not being a
      tribute to Ann's hard work or yours.

      What I said was. "NOT USING" the information on the Clay cemetery that Ann
      Chambless had done was a crying shame.

      Jimmie I hope you feel much better and please keep up the good work. We
      love you and need you to carry on.

      Cuz Jewel

      Hey Cousin Jewel,

      I would never be anything but supportive of Ann, she has been a treasure
      of
      knowledge, sound judgment, and quite frankly someone I deeply admire. I
      created the database from her emails as a tribute to her, so her work
      could
      survive in a digital way, in one place. I completely understand and have
      been working over the last few years to make the database and the PDF you
      see now on our website. Unfortunately, I have lost the database a few time
      when my computer crashed and my heart has gotten worse over these last
      five
      months or so, so I had originally sent the first draft of the database to
      Ann and Clay many moons ago.

      I am deeply concerned about why you would feel that the database was
      anything else but a tribute to Ann's hard work, she put a lot of time into
      typing and assembling those 13 emails, my only contribution was to
      "automate" them for the future use of the Jackson County site, and it is
      my
      continued hope that the Mega file will also be transferred to a database
      so
      it can be sorted and alphabetized. When I started a decade ago it was
      difficult for me to find anything without having to page through pages of
      information, the "find" key was not accurate. As the computer has evolved
      so must our data, so I hope you can forgive me if I made you believe that
      I
      wished any feelings that may have detracted towards Ann, she has never
      wavered in her dedication to bring quality genealogy to all of us; so for
      me
      the cemetery file is just that, a testament to her dedication, skills, and
      of course all of her and Clay's hard work.

      Cuz Jimmie

      You know, Ann Chambless, one of the most wonderful ladies that ya'll could
      EVER wish for has been working for years on the Jackson County, AL
      genealogy
      research and has done some fantastic work for all of us and yet all of you
      are sitting there asking questions about Clay cemetery. Why?

      Just 2 short years ago in November and December 2008, Ann took the time
      and
      did a lot of very hard work to put ALL of Clay cemetery on this very same
      mailing list!!!!

      There was 13 installments in all, now that took a lot of energy. Ann needs
      a medal.

      I am very upset and ashamed that any of you could be so forgetful!.

      I was born near Princeton and lived there until I was about 14 years old.
      My parents, two of my sisters, a brother and one set of my grandparents
      are
      buried at Clay Cemetery along with several other relatives, so I bought
      the
      cemetery book and did not need to keep her transcriptions but did makes
      notes of them. We appreciate Ann Chambless so very, very much and could
      never forget what has and is doing for Jackson County, AL.

      Thank you so very much Ann and if I can help you in any way from Coffee
      County, TN, please let me know. I have a lot of relatives still living in
      that area.
