Re: Sarah Burt Bassett
On the FindAGrave notes you start out with "He".
Don't you mean "She" ??

My interest started with Werner & going back to Walling, Elwell, Bassett, & then Burt.
Getting real confusing with 5 Bassett's same name.

Thanks for your work & contributions.

RE: Info on Henrietta Mae Bartlett
It is definitely a challenge finding correct information. But if it were easy, where would there be any fun? It's the puzzles and enigmas that keep most of us hunting for our folks, don't you think?

RE: Info on Henrietta Mae Bartlett
Thanks for the quick reply. You're right that Hattie can be a nickname for Henrietta, but it is more commonly a nickname for Harriet. I have been trying to find a Henrietta Mae Bartlett for a while now without success, but Hattie M. keeps resurfacing with her parents J.H. (who I believe to be John H.) and H.J. Bartlett. I've been using Ancestry, MyHeritage, Archives, and FindMyPast. Maybe someday we'll find the record that solves the Hattie/Henrietta mystery. In the meantime, I'll leave my records as Hattie M.

Thanks again for the help!

Info on Henrietta Mae Bartlett
Thank you for putting up the memorial for Nellie Vinnie [Davis] Bailey (Memorial #91576076). On that memorial you indicated that Nellie's mother was Henrietta Mae Bartlett. Do you have a reference for that? I have linked Hattie M. Bartlett as her mother through various census records, but have been entirely unsuccessful in finding the name Henrietta Mae Bartlett. Any sources would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The caretaker at Oakwood cemetery told me today that the large tall McCoy monument at greenwood cemetery near the entrance was originally at Oakwood and hauled to greenwood with mules.

Photo is incorrect. This Robert died before the WAR of 1812 which is on this headstone. Perhaps a son Robert.

RE: McCoy
I'll figure it out. I'm photographing as many as I can decipher. It's weird cause it's not the same pic as on the cemetery main page.

At Oakwood cemetery Sistersville WV you have McCoy pics but they are all the same overview shot of graveyard and not individual stones? Didn't know if something happened in uploading.
I'm going to go back and photograph the ones I skipped. I'm glad there at the bottom of the hill!

Peterson/Baker Family
Hiya I wonder if you (or your husband) has any information on a Peterson family. My grandpa was Lewis Wells Peterson, his father Lloyd Peterson, his father was Lewis Ludwig Peterson (1848-1931). Or even the Baker side that married in. I just started on my moms side of the family and really don't have much. Thanks!!

You created Memorial 106205066 with a picture of his military headstone in Emporia. There is also Memorial 25173020 created by B F Scotto in Florida. Is it possible to reconcile these two? I ran across the duplication when research in online. Thanks, Deanna Gilmore Johnson, Rio Vista, CA.

Olin E. Hartley
Mary E. Hoult Wells
Hi Becky -

Sorry yo say that I haven't found her burying site either. Since her husband and wife, Nancy E. Swartz , are buried Maplewood Memorial Lawn Cemetery, it would be a guess on my part that Mary is buried there also, but am sure you you already checked that out.
Also, the last place I show Mary living was in Edgar County, Illinois,where she was married (per marriage records). I did check out the Hoult Cemetery but she is not listed there.

Sorry I couldn't be of any help. Please let me know if you find out where she was buried,

Would you please keep my name and email address attached to your Catherine Carberry Tedrow file? She is the only child of my Irish immigrant that we do not have a photo of. Perhaps during your genealogy endeavors you might run across one. If so, I would be deeply grateful for a copy.

Albert and Robert Hanford
Hi Becky,
I have been researching street names in this area: Hanford St., Columbus, Ohio. I wondered how such an English sounding name came out of such a German neighborhood as this. In my search I learned that this street is named for R.G. Hanford who owned the Columbus Nursery from about 1870 to 1882. I am sure he is your Robert Gilmer Hanford's son. R. G. Hanford and his family are listed in the Columbus, Ohio 1870 Census. His wife is Julietta, son-Gorge, all born in New York. Then there is Elizabeth, Robert, Julietta and Albert born in Ohio except for Elizabeth and I can't read where. The nursery has a full page ad in the 1876 city directory listing the proprietors as Hanford and Son, and noting they have 9 greenhouses with all variety of trees, plants and even goldfish! The earliest listing I could find for him was 1862 in the city directory. There both Robert and Albert are listed as working for Bateham, H. & Co. Robert is living in the location that most likely became the nursery. R.G.Hanford's land in shown on an 1872 map of Columbus, Ohio as about 30-40 acres. The location of his original home is now the n.e. corner of Hanford and High Sts., but his house is no longer there. It is condos and businesses now. His original land is a 3 x 4 block area in what is called Merion Village. Thank you for the info on this page. It was very interesting. L.M.

RE: Mary Frances McCoy

I couldn't really read the stone from the picture. I was going by the name and DOB. However, I did think the death year looked like it was 1 and then an 8. Is the name actually Mary McCoy or Mary F. McCoy or Mary Frances on the stone? The stone may be a child of Asa and Minnie McCoy or she could be a daughter-in-law???????????? I'll do a little more digging around to see if I can come up with a likely match. I will let you know if I find anything. I haven't been able to find anything more on Mary Frances who was the daughter of William and Virginia other than what you have; the name and birth date.

Mary Frances McCoy
Born 26 Mar 1928 in Braxton County. Buried in Flatwoods Cemetery. I believe her parents are William McCutcheon McCoy and Virginia Christian Moore. She appears in the 1930 census with William, Virginia and their son, Donald.

Linda Tomlinson
Rachel Tomlinson Dau of Joseph
Hi Becky, My name is Linda Tomlinson. I'm researching the Tomlinson family and found a Find A Grave record that you posted for Rachel Tomlinson, daughter of Joseph Tomlinson, Find A Grave Memorial# 55628434.

You have Rachel Tomlinson's mother and Joseph's wife as Margaret Cook but I have a Quaker record that Rachel is the daughter of Joseph Tomlinson, son of Joseph Tomlinson, and Margaret, daughter of _______ Baker.

I am descended from Joseph Jr's brother, Richard.

You have her married to Moses Doan which might be true but I hesitate to assume it's correct unless I can resolve this conflict with her mother's name.

RE: chester arthur boggs grave
hi! it seems that chester arthur boggs owned the property where the cemetery is. his property butted up against the oscar kazee property. oscar and ollie (wife of chester arthur ) were brother and sister. so, if chester owned the property then it would be called the bogg's cemetery. there are several different cemeteries in lawrence county, ky that have same names.for instance: my husband's family in buried in the castle at blaine. well there are several castle cemeteries in lawrence county, and i find that the castle cemetery in ulyssis has some of the people that are buried at blaine listed at the ulyssis castle cemetery, and i don"t know how to get that corrected. i couldn't find the listing for this cemetery on the internet. i'll keep trying to find it. the listing i have is:pfc harold boggs 1922-1944, chesster arthur boggs 1887-1960, ollie kazee boggs 1887-1972, clyde kazee 1903-1945, pollie kazee 1876-1918,m.f. kazee 1872-1950, elmer kenneth boggs 1916-1918,julina boggs 181-1914, nancy boggs 1866-1933, charley albert boggs 1892-1894, martha jane boggs 1835-1886, eliphus boggs 1833-1916, infant of eliphus and julina boggs no dates. hope this not too confusing and that it helps you. thanks. any more question, contact me. chris wheeler.

RE: George Dossey
Awe, thank you, Becky! The envelope was addressed to a C. D. Caylor in 1951 and it contained the marriage certificate of George Dossey and Gentry Roberts Dossey. But I did notice that the same george Dossey married again in 1912, 3 years after marrying Gentry Roberts Dossey. I figured she must have died since divorce wasn't real common back then. But maybe they did. Who knows? I'm curious as to how this letter was found at a park in Kansas on the ground. I would like to see it go to a descendent of George Dossey, or maybe a family descendent of Gentry Roberts Dossey. Thanks Becky.
