There is an error with her death date at the top. It is Nov. 10th per the Emporia Gazette.

Could you link Grace and Opal to their parents?
Worda Dunkin is #82604555
Huldah is #98660997

Thanks very much. Huldah was my grandfather's youngest sister.

Stephens Family
This is a long shot, but are you by any chance a descendant of the Stephens family (Martin Luther, Jane Ann, Howard) that you maintain memorials for? I have recently purchased and remodeled a home in Munden Kansas that was built in 1900. I am almost positive that Howard built the home and his parents may have lived there with him, and was hoping to find some kind of link to prove this - perhaps a photo? Thank you!

Hi, did you know Lester Belfield? Or related to him? I am his great niece....I noticed the marraige date seems wrong.....Ester couldn't have been born in 1832?

Ebenezar Doan---Lick Creek, Morgan County IN.
Hi, Just wondering if you have a son named Nathan Doan born to Ebenezar and his second wife about 1811? I have him listed as a son of my ancestor Ebenezar and know that has to be with his second wife as my ancestor Elizabeth died in 1808. Do you know anything about him? Thanks. Carol

John Henry Doan
I hope you don't mind I came across a death notice for John Henry Doan, (memorial 46794759) and have added to his memorial. I thought it may be of interest.

RE: Woodburys
You're welcome Becky! While there I photographed several other Woodbury monuments that do not currently have memorials. I will create memorials when I can find the time (which is scarce these days!).

I have a lot of new info on the pre- and post-immigration data on the Gottleib Romire (Rampmeier, Rampmaier, Rohmayer, Kampmeier, Roammair, Rumwin, etc.) family of your Frederic.

E-mail if interested and I'll share what I have and where it comes from. I've added some to Catherine's memorial, but have more beyond that, that's new since Saturday.

Memorial #51646524 date of death
You created a memorial for William Bassett II with the above memorial number. Your entry shows his date of death as 3 years prior to his marriage date to Sarah Hood Bassett. Do you have any records to confirm what his death date may be?

thank you

Hi Becky,
I have some sources for Mary Hopkins and Samuel Smith. I am not including all information just what conflicts with what you have.

1. NEHGR vol 102, pg 48: Shows Samuel is the one that "died in Eastham on 20 Mar 1696, (Savage says 22 Mar 1697, ae. 55 years)". Also shows he was "bapt. in Hingham 11 Jul 1641" which fits well with a death age of 55. Making him born in 1641.

2. Mayflower Births and Deaths, Vol. 1 and 2, pg 55, Mary Hopkins, "d. 2 Jul 1700, Eastham"

Can you, please, share where your sources for Samuel's birth year and death date?

You can also email me @

Thank you!

William Harrison Shuey # 104529527
Becky, You are good at puzzles. The photos on above site came from 1910 Kansas Normal School Sunflower. He is identified as "Shuey" on all captions. His obit says he moved from Emporia to Wichita in 1928. This obit would place him in Emporia & he would have been 21-22 years of age. Is this Shuey in 1910 my William H. Shuey? I told it was a good puzzle. Richard

I purchased a home on W Marshall Ave(formerly Catawissa) in Langhorne Borough (formerly Four Lanes End and then Attleboro or Attleborough). After doing some research, I see that a Mahlon Doan once sold the house in 1774. But I'm trying to figure out which Maylon Doan it was and if he built the home or if he purchased it from someone else. Do you have any information that could help me with this?

RE: Lowther marker
Becky, so glad I could brighten your day! The Lowther Burying Grounds are confusing;searching for the site with Google Maps only confused me more. There appear to be at least two Lowther graveyards in West Milford, WV. I did not go to the original one I had planned as people told me the tombstones were deteriorated beyond recognition. The Lowther Burying ground I did visit is in shambles. I was told a storm came through and fell a tree in the graveyard. The tree fell smack through the middle of the graveyard, causing quite a bit of damage. I photographed all stones I could read. As for the wife of Robert Lowther; I did not see any markers for her but after research; I believe she may be buried in Jane Lew, WV. I will continue to search, as Jane Lew is only about 15 miles from my home. I have photos of the graveyard, although disturbing. The property owners at Lowther tell me they are attempting to remove the tree and restore the site as much as possible.

RE: Mary Frances McCoy
I haven't been on here for some time and I don't know if I ever answered your message, but I am confused as to who this is about. The only McCoy I have in my contributions, who is close to that name is Marie Frances Grupe McCoy. She was born in 1883 and died in 1955. Can you give me some more info to look at the actual memorial?

Moses Doane, Jr.
I am a descendant of Moses Doane Jr and Mary Comfort. During my research I have found that Moses Doane and his mother Rachel Tomlinson Doane (with her parents Joseph and Margaret Tomlinson) sailed to New Brunswick, Canada, arriving in September 1783. I do not know what happened to Rachel but Moses obviously returned to Pennsylvania where he married Mary Comfort in 1808.
