Sarah E Conner Irwin
Ms. Doan,

I am able to add a date of death for Sarah Irwin buried in Maplewood Memorial Lawn Cemetery in Emporia. From her husband's Civil War Pension record is given the date of January 1876. She was the first wife of Barkley Irwin and died without children.

Pension #326379

Jennell Couey Buchanan
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!!

Lowell Kraum
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.

Obituary for Roy Wisdom #34259927
I want to tell you how grateful I am to you for providing the obituary of my grandfather. In all the papers we have about him, I had never seen this obituary. As he died just weeks before my father was born, his loss so early in life still impacted those of us who never knew him. This tribute is nice to read and I really appreciate your providing it for our family.

Good day,
Is Margaret Zavitz buried with Isaac in Oakwood Cemetery?
I thought/suspect that she remarried to his brother Ben.
Since there is no picture I can't tell.
Thank you.

Hi, Becky. Thanks so much for all of the painstaking research on the Lowthers you have shared with us all! Most of the memorials you created are for Lowthers from West Virginia. I have a lot of DNA matches with Lowhters from Georgia and Maryland. Have you come across any clear connections from WV to MD (Queen Anne's County) or GA (Bulloch or Laurens Counties)?

Added by Ron on Jun 29, 2016 3:37 AM

George DeCamp
Point of are asking I change the DOD to Jan 4, 1906 when the headstone shows Jan 7, 1906. Which is the correct one? I tend to lean towards the headstone.

RE: Duplicate photos
Sorry to take so long to respond to your request to delete the duplicate photo. I changed e-mail addresses, but didn't update the change with Find-a-Grave. I didn't receive your request until I began to wonder why I never heard from the site :-(!

Anywho, I deleted the duplicate picture and look forward to seeing the replacement.

Regards, Arlan

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,

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.
