Dear Jerry and Mrs. Jerry: I know I have asked you before, but would you like me to transfer to you any of the Dinsmore individuals I have created? Things are changing for me in the realm of eyesight. :-( Kind regards, Bridey Light, Humboldt County, CA

Liz Holder
Surline request in Greenhill Cemetery, Laramie, WY
Hello! I was looking at the cemetery registry before going out to take photos and noticed that there are several Surlines in the cemetery other than Genevieve and Richard (the two you requested). Are there any relation? And would you like pictures of any of the others as well? They are not in the same lot, but there are several within a different lot that are presumably a family in the same lot. Please let me know! Thanks! Liz

RE: Juliius Odegarde
Thanks for your interest. Sivert died in 1901. Ellen then married Andrew "Anders" Odegaard. Ellen and Anders Odegaard had I believe four children. Ellen's family tree from Norway notes these marriages and children also. Julius was born in 1907.
Anders Odegaard was Julius father. Is it possible to link Ellen as Julius mother? Thanks Don

Thank you for the additional information for William which has now been added to his memorial.
I have no relative connections so if you do and would like a transfer of his memorial please let me know. Always like to keep memorials within the family if possible.

Hi, I just transferred the memorials of Clarence and Vester Goble to your account. I have about 14 more Goble memorials located in Grant, OK., and if they are related to you ... let me know and I will transfer them to you too.

RE: Kalbaugh, Crown Hill Cemetery
You are welcome. The information on headstones is valuable, especially when records are missing

One thing I forgot to mention is William Sr and William Jr are on the same headstone. William Sr and Katherine are facing west and William Jr and Pauline are facing east which may be the reason for the east side looking "rusty".

RE: Albert Piercy, Maple Grove Cemetery
Hello Gerald. I realized the obit year was wrong. Wasn't sure if it was from the original obit or the transcribing of the obit into Findagrave memorial. :D

By the way, are you related to the Albert Piercy family? If so, could you clarify something? I see his father's name being spelled Albert Gwyn Pearcie. Wondering if that is correct or merely an error by some document clerks along the way. Also what was his wife Dorothy Eloise's maiden name?

RE: Ariadna Hobson

You're welcome. I only live about two miles from Deep Creek Friends Church. My ancestor is George Hobson (son of David and Hannah) who was the first cousin of Stephen Hobson III, Ariadna's husband. My family are farmers in Yadkin County and own some of what used to be Stephen Hobson's land. As a matter of fact,I was raking hay just below the Stephen Hobson homeplace earlier this morning.

RE: Andrew and Alvin Bixler, Evergreen Cemetery
No problem. I was going to add them last night, but ran out of time and I found that I have to resize each of the pictures to fit the mb requirement, so I was running a little low on patience! :-)
The stones were really easy to find. If you have met your limit of requests and have someone else in Evergreen or Riverside, you can send me a message and I will see what I can try and get to for you. Are you in the Ohio area? i found some links to the cemeteries that make it easy to look these ones up.

RE: Claughton Chapel Cemetery
I am always happy to help. If you want you can send me a list of photos you need from Claughton Chapel Cemetery and I would gladly get them all at onces for you. Just tell me the names and dates and if you have the memorial already up I can just upload the photos for you. If might help to get more done quicker. If you want to do that just send me a list and I will see about doing them this weekend. Also I wanted to point out that I found a Paul Hunnell at Claughton Chapel Cemetery yesterday and added him to the Cemetery list. I don't know if he is yours or not but thought I would let you know. I hope you have a great day.
Your friend in West Virginia

Wright, Goff, Garrison Connection
Dear Gerald,
I have been trying to locate graves for John and Rachel Wright when I found your reference note on the memorial for Sarah J. Wright Goff and wanted to know if you have researched further on her parents.

Note: Sarah J. Wright Goff was the daughter of John Wright and Rachel (Unknown).

My family records show Rachel Garrison was her mother. I have found some additional records for Rachel's parents - Stephen Garrison and Elizabeth Ayers Garrison (graves located in Salem Cty, NJ - Olivet Cemetery) and further back to Jacob Garrison and Christina Cresson.

I'm looking forward to review your site and hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks for pointing out the differences in the dates I had and what the stone said. I didn't know a photo of the stone had been added, so I hadn't seen it. One reason I post my ancestor's memorials is that I'm hoping to find out if my information is correct. I always appreciate corrections. Are you related?

RE: Jenny Williams Pitblado
I used her birth record. I will send a copy via email. Note that her mother Sarah Jane sometimes went by the name of Jennie as well
