RE: Levi McClain
Levi was married to Adeline Wilkinson b 1832 to John N Wilinson and Mary Jane Higginbottham

Levi was born 1833 to Rev Matthew McClain and Emily Swincher

One of their daughters Nettie Frances McClain b 1867 in CA Married Benn Woodruff in 1889 in Boone Co., Ind

She had 4 children - the last was born Dec 27 1895
Nettie died Mar24 1896

Levi placed the children with friends

The last child Ray Otis Woodruff was my cousin's father - he was 40 yrs old before he knew he had siblings or anything about his birth parents.

The 2 other boys Plemmy and Glenn married but died childless. The daughter LaBertha married and adopted a girl Betty Jane Wiggam - they lived in Ohio

I have been trying to connect this family for my cousin - her dad has been gone a long time now

I have Nettie being buried in Zionsville but never found Benn Woodruff

That's about all the information I have

Thank you for all your research -- I changed the memorial to unknown

Thank you so much - I thought he was buried there next to his wife.

Thank you again

I can't see the marker - can you blow it up?
I wanted to see if his death date is on the stone and I'm not sure which stone is his?
Thank you

RE: James Gaither Bryant
Mrs. Sullivan,
Thank you very much for the reply. Also, thank you for the geneolgy. I didn't know anyone past Charlie and JoAnne. I'm not sure if I've ever met you before. I've been in the Air Force for over 12 years now. Did you go to Martha or Walter's funerals? I was at Walter's. I was in Italy when Martha passed away and I didn't make it home in time. I was sitting in Chicago during her funeral. If you saw my great aunt Willodene, you must have went to my great uncle Wendell's funeral as well. I'm part of the huge Hadley family in Adair County, on my mother's side. Thank you and take care.

Mount Jackson Cemetery in Indianapolis
Do you know someone I can contact that will give me more info on someone buried there. The Gates, especially John Gates died 1911. I believe he is family and is John Wesley Gates who was originally from Parke County, Indiana. I know the record keeper of the cemetery should have full burial date and perhaps date of birth and next of kin. Your help if any is appreciated.

James Gaither Bryant
J. Sullivan,
I'm looking for some information. I'm fairly certain I'm related to James Gaither Bryant. My great grandmother was Martha Bryant, no middle name. She was born in Adair County on May 16th, 1914 and lived there her entire life. She married Walter Alphonse Hadley in her late teens. Her father's name was Charlie Bryant and her mother was Joanne Bryant. I remember visiting the Loy Cemetery as a kid because we have family buried there. I'm just curious if you have ever heard of Martha, Charlie or Joanne Bryant and if you knew my relation to James Gaither Bryant, if any? Please feel free to email me at Thank you

Griffin Buford Wheat #35470716
J. Sullivan,
We have located a sibling for Griffin Wheat.
Perhaps the written mention of her on his memorial will help someone connect the dots.

Her name is Martha A. (Wheat) McCain.

She is listed on the Missouri Death Certificate of her son, Levi McCain (memorial #111292942).

Martha A. Wheat married David McCain and they are the parents of Levi McCain buried here in Missouri.

That is all that I know. Except, I keep chasing
Shirley ancestors back to Kentucky.

RE: Blair/Day
I have not found Al Sullivan's name in the Blair Book. Do you have that book? It has helped me very much in searching for people.

re: Carol Ann Kern Boyd
Thank you for posting the Memorial for Carol.
Thousands of us owe her a debt of gratitude.
However her passing has created a vast void. Many times changes or additions are needed to her many postings. Would you know who has taken up this Herculaneum task ? Many have asked me. I'm hoping you may know. Thanks and take good care

RE: Al Sullivan

I am a descendant of James and Nancy Day Blair through Emily Blair. I would very much like to know which of Emily's brothers or sister that your family is from.

The Blair Cemetery is not far from my home.

Dickerson Cemetery, Hendricks County, Indiana
Hello Julie,

First, I want to say thank you for photographing the graves in the Dickerson Cemetery. I've been to Hendricks County many times and have even gone to look for this cemetery but when I did the owners of the property weren't home. I didn't feel right going on private property and wasn't sure where I was supposed to look any way. So, thank you for doing mine and I'm sure countless other peoples' work easy for them.

2nd, I know that not all of the headstones have been photographed and that some are unreadable. In your visits to this cemetery did you happen to see any headstones that may have the surname BALES? (I noticed that there is a Bales/Parsons headstone.) The reason I ask is that a daughter of Andrew DICKERSON married James William BALES in 1852 in Hendricks County and then they both just disappear from the face of the earth. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Instructions for transfer
Hi J,

I'm so sorry to bother you again. I know you sent me an answer for how to add multiple's for a transfer, but I've added so much for my family the last few days, I'm having a hard time finding which person the instructions for multiple people transfer was attached to. Could you please send it again on my sister Jackie. I'd like to get the extended family attached to each other soon!

TY so much,

Watkins/Kolsun Transfer
Hi J.Sullivan,

I'm new here at findagrave and was so thrilled that Carol made a memorial for my baby sister jackie Watkins, and quite a few uncles, and my great grandparents at the Yeadon, Holy Cross Cemetery in Phila. Pa. I'm in Calif so that was a very nice surprise to see her memorial!
I'm not sure if you are the guardian for Carol or how this works, but I was hoping you could please pass me the transfer for my sister Jacqueline Watkins "Jackie", my grandfather Andrew F. Kolsun, Paul M Kolsun and his wife Sophia my great-grandparents. They are all buried in the same plot and share the same headstone so I hope that makes it easy to find. Do I need to send the memorial #'s?

I'm so grateful for all the work you Pro's do here! I've only done about 30 and my brain is aboout to explode!!

Thank you so much!
