RE: David Sprague
Thanks Zella, good thing I didn't delete the link from Catherine to David, or change his stats when you first sent a request for correction. The Hier's are my maternal ancestors, and would love to see what you're working on.

Received your message. Interesting info re: David Sprague. I will need to get with the people who created the memorials, and Sprague family members to research it more before I unlink and correct the info. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Are you a Sprague family descendant?

McDowell Cemetery, Altoona PA

I am with a local Lions Club that has an interest in doing a clean upo of brush and graas in this cemetery.

We are hoping to find a local contact to get approval.

Any thoughts?

Well I took the A out again, and corrected the spelling of the maiden name. I also linked her to her parents. A friend found some other documents and I can email you if you would like.

RE: Josephine Haessly edit
I did add the maiden name, but I had found her obit and that also had Josephine A, like a middle initial. After I approved the edit for the maiden name, I went back and re-added the initial. If you have any record showing that she has a different middle initial, I'll be glad to change it. I didn't verify the maiden name, I just took your word for that. I just thought since I had seen the A in two places, the tombstone and the obit, that I would leave that for now. Always happy to re-visit.

Hi, I can add the maiden name, but I was wondering why you want the middle initial of A deleted. It shows the A on her tombstone. Thanks

Hi Zella, this grave is of my Great Grandmother. She was a Native American adopted by an Irish couple (The Kerns (Kearns)). We are trying to find out more about her husband Jacob Hill-Koon. Do you have any info? Thank you so much for taking the time to put up the photo of her grave. It means a lot to me.

It's really not a big deal if you'd rather not connect them at this time. I'll continue to look for better and more substantive evidence. Let me know if you discover anything about his place of internment in your own research.

I see where he was knighted in 1461 at Grafton by Tewkesbury, but his death at the battle at Tewkesbury (1471) seems pretty well supported by many books on the subject. His place of burial is based on Leland's Survey of Wiltshire which was reproduced and annotated in the Wiltshire Archaeological Journal.

RE: Mary Perrine
How do I know if this is the same person? Did she live in Portage or Summit Co Ohio? I don't know if that is her married name on my picture or maiden name. IF you send me your email I will send you a copy of the picture. See what you think. THanks.

They are not my family, unfortunately, but I appreciate all grave pictures put on my memorials. I have been memorializing obituaries and death certificates and haven't gotten past 1941 yet!

RE: David (141743784) & Angeline Kirby Witter
Hi Zella:

Sorry, I looked at the wrong record.

Henry C. Witter is buried at Harvard Grove in Cleveland - Memorial 14808181

Helen Kirby Witter (d 27 Aug 1883), his first wife, is also buried there. She is listed incorrectly as Helen Wittes on FindAGrave - Memorial 145058491. According to an online cemetery database she is in Section 1, Tier 3, Grave 15. She appeared incorrectly as Helen Wittes on a Cemetery Interment Record. (I'll try to add a photo request.)

It was Henry's brother Almus B Witter, listed on Henry C's memorial, who is buried at Woodland.

RE: Joseph Mayer Weaver - St. Marys

Yes, indeed ... People should think about what the vegetation will look like in future years before they try to "improve" a grave.

I try to enhance the site wherever I can.

Right now I'm entering about 10,000 records from the French-Canadian cemetery where my ancestors lie in New England. I transcribed all the stones 42 years ago when I was just a young'un. I remembered the notebooks a short while ago and figured Findagrave could benefit.

David (141743784) & Angeline Kirby Witter
Hello Zella: Thank you for posting the FindAGrave information for this family.

My wife is a descendant of Henry C. Witter. We believe he married Mary H. Kirby, married as Helen M. Kirby, the day after Septimeus (his father) married Angeline G. Kirby (her mother).

Both Henry C and Hellen M. are in FindAGrave buried in Woodland Cemetery. We'd link them, but frankly don't know how.

Would you please tell us where you found the information for the others in the Kirby family; especially Charles? Finding the lineage for both David & Angeline is one of my wife's biggest genealogy "brick walls" and Charles post is the first we've heard of a connection to Orleans County, N.Y.

RE: 12676875 Jacob Lindsey
Thank you Zella. I'm just baffled because I know that their one daughter was born and died in 1882. I can't understand why a family stone was placed with her birth and death year but their son who was born and died before her is not shown with a death year on the family stone. I don't understand why. That's why I thought that maybe there was an actual burial and marker for him. Do you know how i can find out who had the family marker made and when? Thanks for taking the photos of the cemetery, it sure took a long time. I have many family members buried there so it's greatly appreciated.

RE: Mary Perrine
Hi Zella, I didn't see your personal email on your site. I wanted to mail you some pics see if you think it is her. My mother Kathleen Glaski was born and raised in Portage Co Oh, she worked at the arsnal in Ravenna and also BFG. She met my father at a dance club. I don't know how they might have met or it is your person or not. Do you know if your lady was in any of these places? I see she was born in Akron. My mother was also married to Joseph Knight lst, but no kids. Maybe she knew her thru there? '

Funny, I never thought to ask my mom before she passed who her maid of honor was and how she knew her. So sad the things we forget to ask.

anyway, send me your email at mine and I will send you some pics I have of her to see what you think.
