Nancy Allen Doan
Some have the parents of Nancy Allen Doan as Josiah Allen and Elizabeth Deloach. How did you come up with James and Matilda in the description?

Doctor F Perry #107625995
Becky, The above was in Lyon county in 1880 census with his wife & children. The census calls him "Doctor F Perry" and "D F Perry". Having a hard time finding his first name, know he was born in Kentucky & wife Julia born in Virginia. Apparently only in Emporia about 10-15 years. Any help appreciated. richard

RE: Elizabeth Rogers and Elizabeth Snow
Becky, before doing anything, I searched FindAGrave for the two Elizabeths again today and found the other memorial for Elizabeth Rogers (Higgins) is still intact. I don't know why I got the page that said her memorial had been merged with Elizabeth Snow (Rogers), but evidently it hadn't been.

I think now that there must be a fluke in the link to her memorial in FindAGrave. I will try that again and let them know.

In case you're interested, the other memorial is #73415586, Elizabeth Rogers Higgins. She married the brother of my husband's 7X great-grandfather, Benjamin Higgins.

Sorry to have bothered you on this. Thanks again.

Elizabeth Rogers and Elizabeth Snow
FindAGrave says that the memorial for Elizabeth Rogers has been merged with your memorial for Elizabeth Snow Rogers. They are not the same people. Elizabeth Rogers was the daughter of Joseph Rogers and married Jonathan Higgins. Can you do something to restore the memorial for Elizabeth Rogers?
Thank you, June Higgins

Hattie Doane #65882694
Becky, Hattie #65882694 is not the daughter of Boyd and Camilla Doane, but is Hattie (Yoachum) Doane, wife of Perle S. Doane. Hattie and Perle have memorials on findagrave - hers is 73671981. Could you please delete the duplicate?
Boyd and Camilla have a daughter, Laura Jane, whose records are being confused with this Hattie.
However, Laura died in KS and is buried there with her 2nd husband, Walter Harsh, and has a findagrave memorial #63333162.
Thanks for all of your hard work!

You need to make correction regarding month of death of Mabel Dora Hinkle. As you had written down as March as it should be May. Please take a closer look at the tombstone. Thank you. Frank

RE: Baby Doan photo
I have deleted the picture and added it again. They both appeared the right way to me so I hope that helps. Please let everyone know either way as I have someone else with the same problem. If not I will try again!
Happy Hunting!

Is your husband related to Jean Erickson Doane? She is my distant relative. I'm trying to find more info on her siblings and her father's family line. Her father, Lawrence Erickson was the grandson of Hans Erickson. Lawrence's father was Erick H Erickson, and Eric's brother, Henry Erickson is my ancestor.

Any information is greatly appreaciated.

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: Relative of Sarah Ann Koppelberger Connally
Just a note to say thank you for your note :)

I did find some more information on line as well as a few books in the library (I work at a University) on Quakers and the American Revolution and history of Pennsylvania.

I find this all so fascinating. And in addition, my husband also has a connection to the Doan family as well. I thin I might have meantioned his Empire Loyalist ancestors.

But he also had Quaker ancestors in England who were transported to Australia for being "trouble makers".

I'm going to check out the books and the Doan group as well.

I'll drop you a line now and then as I progress.
Thanks again.

J B Anderson's Grave - "SS Induna" - Murmansk
Hello - I visited Steward's Boy J B Anderson's grave this morning at the cemetery on the edge of Murmansk and I have uploaded a couple of images for you. He was very young - it was very moving to see his final resting place and headstone. I hope the pictures are helpful.

Relative of Sarah Ann Koppelberger Connally

I was just doing some quick check up on those Koppelbergers buried in Arkona Cemetery because I might be nearby next month when I visit friends in Ontario.

For the first time I discovered that Sarah Ann had a son, William, who had a daughter, Helen, who married John Doan.

From there I started reading the information that, I take it, you have included for many of the Doan family in Bucks County and in Canada.

It's absolutely fascinating. The Koppelbergers were initially from Bucks County and Pennsylvania. Some remained there and some moved to Upper Canada/Ontario. Most of them moved back to the U.S. to Michigan and Wisconsin.

Anyway, so is there somewhere I could find full history of the Doans and what happened to them?

My husband's relatives/ancestors were almost all Empire Loyalists who fled to Upper Canada. So the story of the Doans is very interesting to me.

Thank you very much.

Goff family
I have been attaching the Goff family to my tree. Your memorials are unbelieveable for accuracy, story, and details. My most supreme compliments for the wonderful work you do. I should have you do the memorials in my family. (LOL)

George William Goff, 1894-1985, married Dorothy Anna Harttel, abt. 1914-1980, in 1942. Dorothy was the daughter of my great grandfather's youngest brother, born Karl Hertel, he later took the name Charles Albert Harttel. Dorothy's mother was Viola Helen (Henning) Harttel.

It was pure joy to add the Goff family to my tree.

Very Sincerely,
Sylvia M. Hertel

RE: George Dossey
I'm sorry I didn't see your email. Don't we receive notifications when we get a message? No, I never found anything on George Dossey. I didn't know him, but i think the lady that found the MC gave up.
By the way, my dad just died yesterday, and I had entered him in Find a Grave months ago because i knew he was dying. When i entered his death date and added stuff, I noticed his name isn't in a link anymore. But his brother's name is still a link. Why would my dad's name lose its link? Do you know?
