RE: J R Paul
Hi - thanks for responding - I have family documents written by his wife that indicate his correct name along with Civil war documents and pension documents - as well as a certificate issued by greenlawn as to his full correct name - what do I need to do to correct it? It seems to me it was once correct and someone changed it. I don't know much about Zachariah - I do have a letter from him to his son James - and other family documents but no photos - JR Paul's son is Herbert F. Paul - also at greenlawn and his second wife - my 2nd great grandmother = Rhoda Paul is also buried there as well as many of her family. I live in Washington State. Is there a way to see the stones at the other cemetery? Are you a relative of JR Paul? Thanks for the help -

RE: Beaches and Andrews
Hi Brent. No, Iím not related to the Beach or Andrews families of Kent, but I do work in that cemetery and am interested in Kent history.

I was looking at the stone of Hattie Andrews Beach.

She first appeared on the 1850 census in Randolph, Portage, Ohio: Andrews, George, 29, b. NY; Ann, 27, b. NY; Lucius, 8, b. Michigan; Harriett, 4, b. Michigan. Then, in 1860, the family was still in Randolph: Andrews, GW, 39, b. NY; Ann, 37, b. NY; Luciens, 18, b. Michigan; Harriet, 13, b. Michigan; Willie, 6, b. Ohio; Shaff, John, 21, b. Ohio.

Next, her marriage record: Alonzo Beach and Hattie Andrews, 3 Dec 1864 in Portage County.

I believe this is them in the 1870 Census in Marlboro Twp, Stark County, Ohio, just over the Portage County line: Beach, A. L., 27, shoemaker, b. Ohio; Harriett, 24, keeping house, b. Michigan; Flora, 4, b. Ohio; 4 other names that could be boarders or other non-relatives in the household.

Hattieís headstone appears to list 1874 or 1876 for her death.

Actually, although there is a memorial for Alonzo Beach in Standing Rock, I donít see a headstone there for him. The photo on his memorial is the stone for his wife Hattie. So I donít know if he is in Standing Rock or not.

Hattieís parents George and Ann were in Franklin, Portage, Ohio in 1880, with Ella Knisely and Hattieís son Willie L. Beach, age 9, b. Ohio. Ann died at her grandson Willís farm outside Kent in 1909.

That's very interesting, Brent. That suggests that James' birth month was May and not August, as has been reported. Thank you.

Wow! That's great, Brent. It appears that she was 3 years 11 months 3 days old... is that what you think, looking at the grave marker? Well done!

RE: Look who I found
Well, you sure did!! How about that? Way to go!! I had no idea they had another child. Did you just dig his stone up today?? Since Solomon Shultz came "west" in 1856 (according to his son's bio) that little fellow must have died before then. I wonder if he was stillborn since he wasn't named?
I'm sure you already know this, but sometimes the name of the child is written in raised lettering across the top edge of the stone - where it receives the most weathering. Any chance there is anything there? It really doesn't look like the kind of tombstone that would have writing on the top though.
When I received your note, the name of your cemetery rang a bell with me......I wonder if Solomon Shultz (father of the child you found) is a son of Balzer/Balsar Schultz/Shultz who is also buried at Madison Truro Cemetery and has a cenotaph at Long Cemetery in Belleview, Calhoun County, Illinois? The cemetery Solomon is buried in is about 10 miles from from the cenotaph for Balzer Shultz at Long Cemetery.
Any thoughts?
Thank you for your hard work finding the tombstone and letting me know about it!! It looks like you are working on restoring the cemetery, yes?
Your friend,

Thank you for the correct cemetery, I just got home yesterday from open heart surgery and was unable to move the memorial earlier.

Just happened across another memorial to a Civil War veteran that you were instrumental in updating and photographing. Haven't heard from you in a while, so wanted to say thanks for all your hard work to make sure our veterans are remembered and promoting Green Lawn Cemetery.

Glad it all worked out! I think those "glitch" memorials will keep showing up now and again. I lost 6 Wilsons on June 21. Have no idea where they are! :-)

RE: Carson twins in Madison Truro Cemetery
Hello. Unsure of what may have caused the deaths of the twins. I believe they were children of James & Calista Stephenson Carson.

RE: Balser/Balsar Schultz/Shultz
Thanks! How should I handle this? He's obviously buried in Ohio...should I delete my memorial in Long Cemetery in Illinois and add my photo to his actual burial location and mention that it is a cenotaph? It's kinda weird....usually, folks would say, Hannah, wife of Balser Schultz, blah, blah, blah - not actually put all his info on another tombstone...or I could completely delete mine and mention on Hannah's memorial that he is actually buried in Ohio and has a memorial(cenotaph) stone at Long? I could use an opinion.....

Did you also dig that stone up? It looks FANTASTIC, especially considering it's age.....I appreciate it if you did...and for cleaning it up as well. No matter what, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PHOTOGRAPH!! (And the note letting me know you had added it...)
