My aunt has a box of pictures that must have belonged to Aunt Rose.  Some of the pictures are addressed to Aunt Rose.  There are a few envelopes addressed to Aunt Rose.  Since Rose had no children, her belongs went to Sacca Gold Weems, then to Ruth Weems Cunningham or my aunt, Ruth's daughter.  One letter in the box had belonged to Adaline Young Ellis.  Adaline raised Rose and some of her siblings after their mother Eliza died.  The letter is from 1868 from Adaline and Eliza's father. 

1868 letter is transcribed on Alexander Young's page.

Unidentified Pictures page 8 - boy, 3 pictures of men

Tintypes - 2 pictures of babies, 1 picture with 2 women

Other pictures - Sacca Gold Weems and other's have had procession of this box of pictures, so other families pictures were in it.  Here are 2 pictures that I need to get identified.  One might be Sacca and the other is some children in 1955 that might have been Uncle Fat's (Lewis?) children.

Cemetery records:

Vestal Weems (1905-1982) requested to be buried at the Wanda Cemetery because Aunt Rose Meredith was buried there, so she wouldn't be by herself.

from Pat who has the Wanda Cemetery records:
In lot 161:  Vestal Weems, Rose Meredith (no stone),  A.C. McClain (no stone) and ??Slokum   (no dates-no stone)

From James Meredith obituary, he was buried in Pierce City, MO.
