RE: Larry Wayne Kough
Thank you for making my day! Compliments swell my head to giant proportions! Now I need to buy size XXL hats to wear.

I have had my share of chuckles on this site, not to mention the hundreds of hours spent playing find a grave, gotcha!

Larry :-)

Thank you for Bud's obituary, but I always omit the living relatives addresses.

RE: William H Leigh
Marilyn, I'm just going to confirm that he's NOT at Calvary Cemetery at LaSalle. If the death certificate says Calvary Cemetery at LaSalle, it's probably incorrect, and I wouldn't know where to begin to find him. Sorry.

RE: William H. Leigh
I will be documenting the cemetery in the future, and will consult the plot map, just to verify. Glencoe Cemetery is somewhere nearby and administered by the archdiocese; I suspect that some of the folks listed as being in Calvary are actually in Glencoe Cemetery. LaSalle Institute and LaSalle Retreat Center are the same property; I don't think the Institute exists anymore.... I will check that too. Thx.

Marilyn, I put pictures on the Memorials you wanted but the headstones have turned so black it was difficult to get a good picture. I may try again another time. Jo Ann

RE: Robert B. Strain
Thank you. I came up with same father, too. Allen is the son of James Strain who died 1789, intestate in Augusta Co., VA and left many chancery court records dividing his property amongst his family who all moved to Jefferson or Blount Co., TN. I hadn't worked on this family in a long time. Appreciated,

Jane Snell Copes
Collins Snell connections
Hi Marilyn, I know that you have found a great deal of history on Jacob Collins and Mary Ellsworth's descendants. Levi Collins (6213023) married Betsy Snell (6213023) from my line of Snells. And Betsy's next younger brother Samuel Snell (b. 1800) married Rachel Collins. Both marriages are reported to have occurred in Warren County, OH, about a week apart in 1818.

Do you have any info on Rachel Collins? She is not listed in Jacob Collins/Mary Ellsworth's record, and I have not found a grave record for Samuel Snell yet.

Thanks very much! Jane Snell Copes

Hi, I met you @ family reunion for 'Bridge'.
You might remember me giving you pic of Myrtle's Huggans/Huggins family @ hop picking?

Myrtle passed away in Nov. I made memorial for her... Took pic off as identity theft is happening in Find A Grave... You know how to find her memorial... I don't want to publish info here.

I found some files for Don Norman that state Collins have connection to George Washington. I have left the place where found that. I also found a letter from a John Collins to George Washington. Is this this John or father John possibly.

It just tidbit for site if you like to post.

Rebecca Elizabeth Nutter
The RE Nutter that is married to Joseph King is listed in the US Census as born in Maryland in both 1850 and 1870. And I can't find anything that shows that the RE Nutter that married Joseph King was the d/o Grafton and Elizabeth. Do you have anything? Thanks.

Thanks for posting this memorial. Was your information based on paper records or from Hannah's gravestone? I've never been able to confirm when or where she died.
