Andrew j lowther buried in arkansas
Hi Becky, Its been a while since we've messaged. But me and a distant cousin has been working on finding people with in our family line. I found out my 5th grandfather Watson had a brother named Andrew Jackson Lowther. Andrew is buried in Arkansas beside his wife mary ann. If you can link him up to Elias Robert Lowther it would be greatfully appreciated. Thanks Bo

Hiram Payne
Hi Becky, Thank you so much for your research. Unfortunately it is not my Hiram. Mine would have been an old man born c. 1821. He was living in Howard Co KS in 1875 and his widow is in Cowley Co KS in 1880. Your work is helping to narrow down my search and I very much appreciate it. Thank you so much for your help.

Hi Becky, I noticed your memorial for Hiram Payne of Kansas and wondered if he could be the ancestor I have been looking for. Would you remember where the information came from, Cemetery records or a marker that has not been photographed? Any help you might be able to give me will be much appreciated. Thank You, Mary Lavezzari

RE: Helen C. Sprague Doane
I didn't know but i have found her. She is at Forrest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, Ca. I just had a hunch since that is one of two places out here that Sprague's seem to get buried at. I can try to get a photo sometime if she has a head stone

This was the couple I mistaked them for 97604005
. I have a death date of 28 MAY 1912 • Kanawaka, Douglas, Kansas, United States found here : Also I found this new site that is amazing. It helped me with a huge Sprague family mystery.

Abigail Sprague Doane
Hi Becky I am so sorry for the mistake. The Spragues are my line and I had found a NY Census for 1865 Benjamin Doane with the same years of birth and Abby Doan with a child named Franklin and thought the dates were off. I found the information in a book confirming you were right to begin with. Both wives were 1/2 sisters and daughters of Asa Sprague.

John Henry & Narcissa Hammer
Saw your edit request for edits for John Henry 171957741 and his wife Narcissa 171993315. Are you related? Can you tell me the source for the edits? Curious as they are distant relatives and always looking for more info. If you're related let me know.

Robert J. Bloomer
Cyrus and johanna (Marsden) Hanford
Johanna and her ittle daughter did drown in the Steam Ship accident Henry Clay on July 25, 1852. Her death notice was posted in the Brooklyn Eagle and her mother (Susan Marsden) filed several probate records.

On July 28th, 1852 the Steamship Henry Clay was en-route from Albany to New York City with Bloomer cousin Capitan John F. Tallman (1815-1875) in command. Among the passengers were Johanna Madsen and her little daughter also Bloomer cousins. As the ship neared the Undercliff community a fire broke out in the engine room. The ship was over loaded with 500 passengers, only two life boats, and no life vests to handle the panic stricken people. As the flames leaped into the night sky, Captain Tallman swung the ship’s bow toward the Riverdale, NY shoreline over a mile away, the majority of the panicked passengers fled or were ordered toward the stern. As the ship raced toward the New York shore the wind whipping over the bow caused the fire to become a ragging inferno. The passengers on the stern now lost any hope of escaping to the relative safety of the bow. Even when Captain Tallman was able beach the burning craft bow first, the passengers on the stern were cut off by the heavy smoke and flames ragging amidships. Johanna (Madsen) Hanford, with hundreds of others, and her one-year old daughter, Joann, were among the group on the stern. Mother and daughter were from Ulster County and had recently lost their father and husband the year before. Cyrus Hanford was only 23 years old at his death. While the few passengers on the bow were able to jump safely to shore, the flames were about to engulf the passengers trapped aft. Their only choice was to jump into the swift Hudson River or be burned alive by the ever encroaching flames. With many other, Johanna chose the river. Once in the water, along with hundreds of others, Johanna did her best to save her child and keep their heads above water. Most people could not swim and grabbed at anything or anyone still afloat. For only a few minutes the water was filled with struggling trashing bodies and then one-by-one they disappeared into a dark watery grave. Neither Johanna or her little daughter survived.

For several days, lifeless floating bodies were pulled from the Hudson along the New Jersey Palisade shoreline. Joann’s body was recovered the next day, but her mother was never found. It was later claimed that the Henry Clay and the Steamer Armenia had been racing toward New York City and at one point the Clay had even forced the Armenia to slow and change her course to avoid colliding on the two-mile-wide river.

Carol Routt
Henry Routt
Hi , My name is Carol Routt and I am working on the Henry Routt family. He was married to Margaret Turner. He is the father of Jesse Routt. His memorial number is 101597593. You have that he is married to Margaret Elizabeth Hill Campbell. That isn't correct. If you look up Jesse J Routt's death certificate Missouri, his mother is listed as Margaret Turner. Margaret also had a son previously, named Millard Turner and in Henry Routt's obituary in the Emporia Weekly Gazette on 23 April 1931, Henry is survived by his widow, a son Jesse Routt of Kansas City, and a stepson, Millard Turner. There could be another Henry Routt, but the father of Jesse Routt was married to Margaret Turner. Thank You, Carol Routt

Hi! I just transferred a memorial to you, as I see that you are manager of his parents. If you would like the entire obit sent to you, email me and I can do that.

Simon Dixon
Yep! I'm aware of the literally TON of Simon Dixon in the cemetery! Obviously, I didn't do that. Once again Find A Grave had a glitch in the server or whatever causes the duplications. Most I ever had before was around 10!
I don't see how I can go through and delete all those - I started and gave up after about 20. I submitted a request to Find A Grave about a month ago to see if they could delete them more easily on their end, but haven't heard back - probably won't. If it wouldn't take so many clicks to delete, I could probably do so, but I suppose I could TRY to do a few a day!
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
Happy New Year

Peter Hoover
Additions to Elizabeth Brick Hoover
Dear Becky,

Would you consider adding a bit more onto Elizabeth Brick Hoover's page on the Rainham Mennonite Cemetery? These are the suggested additions:

Elizabetha Brick Hoover was born to Peter Brick and Barbara Eckert on 02 Feb 1815 in Germany. She arrived on the ship Marigo on 11 Aug 1833 in the Port of New York. The family moved to Canada West (Ontario), where she found temporary work amongst Mennonites in the Rainham Settlement. Her parents, and other German Catholic relatives settled in the New Prussia settlement in Waterloo County, and later Formosa in Huran County, Ontario.

Elizabetha married Jacob Hoover and joined the Rainham Mennonite Church, of whom he became the deacon. They had eleven children. She died on 23 Jan 1897 in Haldimand County, Ontario.

* * * * *

If you could add this on, this information might be of value to seekers of Elizabeth's very large amount of descendants.

May the peace of Christ be with you, in this Christmas season!

Peter Hoover
