Would like permission to use tombstone photos in my family file. If allowed, how would you like photo credit given? Thank you, and thank you for all the great work you have done for the Find A Grave community.

Is May Wallace someone who married a Wallace or was born a Wallace? I'm seeking May Charles Wallace who married Samuel Wallace in 1897 in Wisconsin. Is this possibly her? (I noticed you commented that she is distantly related to you).

Rufus Pendarvis in Oak Hill Cemetery ???
Kate, I am curious if you have a list of people buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Elk City, Montgomery County, Kansas. I am looking for a Rufus Pendarvis that I am pretty sure is buried in Kansas somewhere and thinking that it is this Cemetery. He past away in 1912... Any help or info you could provide would be sweet... Thanks, Tony

RE: Stinchcomb
Hello Kate,

Thank you so much for the information. Our line descends from Elizabeth's brother, Fredrick Rufas. If you would like to have the information I have on this family I would be happy to e-mail it to you. I have a family contact in England who said he would try and gather some information regarding the 6 family member who stayed in England. I have not received any of his research at this time. However the five who immigrated to America I have been able to get some info. My e-mail is
Best wishes, Chuck

How are you related to her. I see you have her picture. She is my Aunt. My Uncle Harry Morris was a brother to my mother, Edith Lucille Morris Arick and I am her daughter.

RE: Stinchcomb
Hello Kate,

Thank you for such a rapid response. The (copy) Marriage license I
have is issued by the office of the Probate Court, Marion, County, Kansas 26 Sept, 1883 (?). It has J. B. Stinchcomb (age 43?) and Mary J Rhien (age 26). John Bence Stinchcomb is an older brother who came to America and is buried in Centralia, WA. but Joseph and Mary J are on the stone in West Clarendon Cemetery. John Bence was born Nov 1841. 1841 + age 43 is 1883. Unless both married wives that were named Mary J. I will make a trip to Marion, Kansas and attempt to get a better copy and more info on that marriage.
I'm somewhat new at this, I would really appreciate any advice you might offer. Does the obit for Elizabeth give any details on J.B or Joseph and there locations? Is there any info I can get you?
Thanks, Chuck

Chuck Stinchcomb
Hello Kate,
I am a Great Grandson of Fredrick Rufas Stinchcomb and reside in Russell, Kansas. I have been researching FR's family line and found there were 5 of 11 children of Thomas May and Martha Susannah (May) Stinchcombe (Gloc. England) that came to America. FR's brother Joseph (and wife Mary Janet) are in Riverside Cemetery in Clarendon, MI as well as his sister Elizabeth (Stinchcomb) Pritchard and her husband Thomas W. Pritchard. I have very little information
on Elizabeth other than what was noted in her husbands obit (1910). Joseph is somewhat of a mystery. His roots took him from England to Michigan then to Aulne, Kansas to live with his brother F.R. His first wife I believe was Francis Hawkins (?), died and is buried along side her infant son William J (Willie J) Stinchcomb at Marion, Kansas. Francis died at the age of 28 (Sep 1, 1880) and Willie died Jun 10, 1880, age 6 mo.
J.B. (Joseph B ?) Stinchcomb married Mary Janet on 26 Sep 1883 in Marion, Kansas. They had a daughter, Mary Francis who died Aug 1, 1884 at the age of 3 weeks. FR's wife Emma also died Sep 21, 1884 (age 31). I suspect with the loss of his first wife, a son, a daughter and a sister in law, he and Mary Janet moved back to be near his sister Elizabeth. That is a lot of family death to deal with in a short time. Do you have any information on Joseph or his sister Elizabeth? Would you like any additional information from me?
Best wishes, Chuck Stinchcomb

Lee Osborne (Osborne Origins)
Rockselene Osborn memorial
Hi, I would just like to offer a correction for the memorial for Rockselene Osborn -- the stone for her reads 1847 instead of 1842. Silas Osborn (Jr.) married Rockselene Lee on Oct 21, 1846 in Van Buren Co., MI.

Lest Forgotten
William Bradley
I seen where you left "flowers" on a memorial of this grave, thought you might be interested in more information about this person:

BRADLEY, WILLIAM: William Bradley, who lived near Tomkinsville, Ky., an
athlete and gymnast belonging to the Byers & Bachelder Show, which
exhibited in Carthage last week, fell six feet from a horizontal bar,
and broke his neck, last Tuesday at Red Boiling Springs, Macon county. A
coroner's inquest was held, several witnesses examined, and the verdict
of death returned in accordance with the above facts. The remains were
taken by William York to Tomkinsville for interment. The show had given
two exhibitions at the Springs, one on Monday and the other on Tuesday.
At each of these Bradley complained of not feeling well, and at the
latter performance between 11 and 1 o'clock, he met with his fatal
accident. He had been previously subject to heart disease and fainting
spells, and it is the opinion of physicians that one of these sensations
overcame him at the critical moment when he fain would act his part
despite his indisposition. The neck was broken at the base of the skull.
(Smith County) [Date 6/7/1894, Vol. VII, No. 32, Page 1]

Regarding the photo requests for the Dishong's at Benshoff Hill- I transcribed this cemetery back in 2006 and compared it to the findings of earlier surveys done and posted on the Cambria County website.

This cemetery is very well-known for missing headstones. Dishong is one of my family lines. Unfortunately, the three people you had requested photos for do not have headstones and it is nearly impossible to know where exactly in the cemetery they are buried. I talked to the office staff and they don't have any records prior to the 1950's. That certainly doesn't help matters, either.

Sorry I couldn't report better news...

Jacob DeShong/Dishong #136159849
You requested a photo for Jacob DeShong but this memorial is actually a duplicate for one that was created earlier. I sent a message to the memorial owner to delete it.

If you are interested, I have a photo of Jacob's headstone on his original memorial under #124458201. Also, I have not been able to find a headstone for his wife Rebecca and believe that she is in an unmarked grave.

RE: Old Buck Marsh Cemetery
Actually, I see a notation on James Larue's Find A Grave memorial (#18688463) that his original tombstone was moved to Green Hill Cemetery, Berryville, VA. I don't see his name listed on the Green Hill Cemetery interment list though.
