RE: Abraham Vickers and Mary France
One of the perks of being self-employed.....I have posted the great-great grandson of Thomas Vickers on my site of Find a Grave. I have been to the cemetery in Burton CO, IL where William Vickers (#130145566)is buried with his wife Anna Reeder (#13014337) as is their daughter Margaret Vickers and her husband Richard William Richards, but someone else already had them on Find a Grave if you want to check them out. I come from the Richards line through my paternal grandmother Sibyl Richards Keown. Hope you find this interesting. I am retired so I can spent waaaaaay too much time at this!

RE: Abraham Vickers and Mary France
Fantastic information! Thanks for your super-speedy reply. If I find out anything more about the family, I will be sure to share.

Abraham Vickers and Mary France
Good morning, Becky. I am also a descendant of Abraham Vickers and Mary France and I was wondering if you can share with me the sources confirming Abraham's birth in New Jersey in 1691. I have not been able to find a definitive source. I am also curious to know anything you might have to share about Abraham's parents Thomas Vickers and Esther Borden. Thanks for your willingness to share.

Hi Becky,
Are you related to the Doans in Elmview, Howland Twp. Manitoulin Island? My g-uncle by marriage was James Albert Doan and is buried in Hilly Grove Cemetery on the Island. He was first married to my g-aunt Lizzie Humphrey.

Re: George Siedhoff
Hi Becky,
Glad you enjoyed the information about George Siedhoff. Take a look at my information about the Old Mission Mausoleum. George was the general contractor on that 34 year project. We have made contact with each other in the past and I thank you for your help and support.

RE: William & James Doan(e)
I'm very sorry to hear that the information is missing. We were surprised to see how many unmarked sites were at the cemetery. I'm not sure if the cemetery administration would have any additional information or if you've contacted them already - just a hopeful suggestion. Thanks for the messages letting me know you saw the photos.

Hi Becky,
I have transferred the Denis family to you as I am not related. And that was before I saw your note about the obituary. Please add it at your convenience as I no longer have access.
And would you kindly consider adding photo requests for both of them? There's a team of photographers working in Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery and they like to fill photo requests.
Take good care,
Mary Ann

Names at Doan Cemetery
Regarding the graves you submitted for Doan Cemetery in Port Colborne: how did you document the names when most of the headstones are virtually unreadable? Did you go by cemetery records? You did not submit any photos, so you probably did not use that to decipher the inscriptions. Even rubbing the stones would not make most of them clear. I am just curious!!! Diane

Inaccurate transcriptions!
So sorry... the 'infant' one is wrong and at least one other as well. I finally found the Doan cemetery yesterday (I had not driven far enough down the road before so really did not 'miss' it, just never got to the right spot at all) and wanted to look at and input some of the photos last night. But it was getting late and I think I was a little bleary-eyed!! So please change them right away! I have more pics to add and will do that soon. I was also getting a little confused looking at my tree of Knisleys/Sherks/Binglemans/etc. and going back and forth with the photos to see who is who! Again, sorry for the mistake(s) .. Diane

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.

James Lemon
Agnes Goodsir
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 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 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!
