Hi Tom,

Nice to meet you. Have you done a lot of
research on this family? Do you know anything about Elizabeth Jane Yerby? I have
been researching about 4 years on different
avenues of families. In October, we were in
Arkansas, stopped in Prescott, found the
Moscow cemetery, found John's headstone, broken in 3 pieces. We took pictures, both
with the pieces put back together but then
with two greenwood boards and wire with twist
bolts to hold it all together. Big concern
is that the pieces would be lost. I don't
know if the headstone could be permanently
repaired. Guess I should contact someone either in Hope or Gurdon and see if there is
someone who could repair it permanently.
I am sure Ann Hassell is also
buried there but no marker. The church on the grounds of the cemetery has been abandoned, the windows broken. What a shame.
Have found another Yerby-Rogers cousin who
lives in Georgia. She was at the cemetery in
Gurdon a couple of weeks before I was. Another cousin located in Pine Bluff happened
to see her while she was there, got her name
and phone #.

Would love to hear from you. You can reach
me at junipert@mlecmn.net. Thanks for your
response.

Sincerely,

Edna Rogers Ulrich
