Mary D. Schmalzried, Memorial# 54222166
Hi, Becky - I was wondering where the photo came from that you added of Mary D. Schmalzried in March 2015? I was putting some family photos of Mary on Ancestry and was going to put her portrait on Find-A-Grave when I discovered the photo you added. Would like to copy it to keep with her other photos and would appreciate knowing what it is - I thought it appears to be from a newspaper or other article. Thanks so much - Bonnie Thompson Henricks

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.
Happy Trails,

Eleanor E. Doan
Hi, Becky,

How are you doing?

Could Eleanor E. Doan, 1880-1996 be Eleanor E. Doan Hilborn, wife of George W. Hilborn, 1880-1966, Pinehill Cemetery? I saw this gravestone this morning and noted that you listed an Eleanor E. DOAN, no year of birth or death on Find_A_Grave.

I will get a photograph next time I'm in Pinehill, which will be soon.

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: 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?
