Doan Cemetery
I looked for this cemetery but could not locate it! Even looking for the sign in the photo did no good. Is it hidden off the road (2nd Concession) and hard to find? My ancestor is Christian Knisley who is supposed to be buried there. He married Christina Bingleman... Help! Diane (nee Bingleman)

RE: Nancy Chambers Holmes, Thomas Holmes, Thomas E. Holmes (drowning victim)
Thanks so much for your help with Thomas E. Holmes. If you hadn't asked me if I thought he was a relative of Thomas Holmes and Nancy chambers I wouldn't have found all the info I have now. Lots of names sibs and their kids etc. It's amazing it just keeps spreading out like a big spider web. Yes I love it and I definitely am having fun with it.Should I be sending you more info on other names that I have now found connected to this family?
Thanks,
Tootz

Ronald and WW Finney
Hi Becky

I just found this site and the information and pictures of Ronald Finney and WW Finney and noticed you created the site. Interesting information and pictures. My dad, Robert Bader, wrote "the Great Kansas Bond Scandal" about the Finneys life and downfall. Ronald is - I think - a cousin of Dads. I was just wondering about your connection to the Finneys. Couldn't figure it out from your bio. Can you describe?

When I was in college Dad bought WW's Neosho Falls house and I spent many hours there painting and repairing it and became familiar with the history.

Thanks much.

Elizabeth Whitbeck Holmes #103160589
Becky,
Hi again. Did you know that Elizabeth Whitbeck Holmes has 2 memorial pages on findagrave? #103160589 that you created and also Elizabeth Whitbeck #111335429 created by one of her ancestors Keith C. Quimbach. His bio says he can trace his ancestry back to the Mayflower, pretty interesting info. I though you might like to know.

James Lemon
Agnes Goodsir
Becky
I went back and review the original photos so I would know who was with who. The original Goodsir large headstone was 6388, Agnes was 6389 and Margaret was 6390

My guess for parents would be Michael 1865 and Jane 1865, just a guess.

Jasper and James Doan
Becky, I am trying to link Jasper Newton Doan with his father, James Doan (jr.), his grandfather James Doan (sr.) and his great grandfather, Thomas Doan. I have the 1850 McNairy Co., TN census which shows Jasper living with his parents, James and Elizabeth Doan. Do you have a link (will or probate record) linking James Doan (jr.) to his parents James (sr.) and Mary Doan? Or James (sr.) to his father, Thomas Doan? Please let me know. Thank you kindly.

I feel good about my sources. I used John O'Hart a lot and found documentation in other reliable sources. As you browse through you will see the sources.

Also the mix-up occurs with the wives of the Hughs.
My line comes through Robert 126385760. This is where the trouble starts because the Hughs who descended from Robert's brother, Gilbert 127139509.

I have both lines with good sources in findagrave.com to clarify the mix-ups and the right Hughs married to the right wives.

Take a look at Hugh 126386894 to get the second Hugh in my line marriages straight. Look at Gilbert's son Hugh's wife 127144144 to get the second line correct.

Have a good time. I have tried to get correct info to Ancestry.com and anyone who has it mixed-up. It is a mess out there.

RE: Aaron S. Doan #127024655
Hi Becky! Aaron's wife, Naomi Barton, was my 3x great aunt. I got copies of their death certificates from the PA Archives because I could not figure out where they were buried either. They had five children; Myrtle, Grace, William, George and Ira. Aaron's death certificate states that he was 'handled' by H.J. Deckard, the undertaker in Marysville, (which was right down the street from Chestnut Grove Cemetery, and now owned by another family) but it says his place of burial is Harrisburg, PA, on October 30, 1915. I suspect he was buried in East Harrisburg Cemetery, since that is where most of the Doan family is as well. Their son, George, provided the information to the local registar and probably handled the arrangements. However, Naomi passed away before Aaron, and prior to her death, she was living in Marysville with their son, William, and his family. So her death certificate, with information provided by William, states that she was buried in Chestnut Grove in Marysville, on February 12, 1915. I would bet that William is buried in Chestnut Grove, too.
It is my understanding that the state keeps track of deaths, but the county keeps track of burials, so the only way to know for sure would be to check the records at the Dauphin and Perry County courthouses. Hope that helps!

James Doane Memorial 123112440
Becky do you have a good source for the subject memorial. I am researching the Doane family and there are some that say the James that married Mary Ann Woolsey was the son of Hezekiah Doane and Sarah Bland. I would like to gain input on whether you or some other source can provide any evidence to help in deciding which is the real father Thomas or Hezekiah.

I will appreciate any assist,

Mary E Boggs
Hi Becky! I'm having some confusion w/Mary. She is linked to an Albert Boggs & on his it says his mom is listed with him on the 1920 Kansas census. As this Mary died in 1917 I'm thinking she is a different Mary Boggs. Is there a way to verify her maiden name? My Mary (maiden Frost) was married to Charles E. Boggs & he is buried in the same cemetery. Just wondering if she is my relative. Appreciate your help! Julie
