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.

Thank you so much for transferring my uncle's Memorial page. I know the work it takes to go out, take pictures, and make the memorials. Without all of the volunteers this wouldn't be possible.

Bless you

He was my 4th cousin once removed. Maybe your husband and I are related, if so would like to share information if possible.

Thanks for the clarification on Mary's burial location. I have added the Texas memorial number to the one in Elmwood.

Her burial, with lot number, is included in the published book of Elmwood burials. This should avoid any confusion in the future. Regards, Swede

Thank you for the transfer.

Bushong Weiss maintains the memorials for Lydia's father and two of Lydia's siblings. Is he/she still active or with us?

Lydia (McAllister) Carr, 67167426

Do you maintain memorial 67167426 because she is part of your ancestry or because you took over the creator's memorial due to his/her death or inactivity?

If the latter, I would greatly appreciation consideration of a transfer so I can establish an unbroken ancestral line. I am detailing and connecting the descendant family of the 1720 immigrant Scotch ancestor Angus McAllister of Londonderry, NH, Lydia being one of them (Wm. P.,5 George4, George3, David2,* Angus1*) Lydia's paternal grandparents, who relocated from Londonderry to Michigan prior to the 1850 census, have memorials and gravestones at Michigan.

This message is also being sent via Lydia's SAC tab.

RE: James Wayne Strait


I meant to include a message that the picture
of the marker was Ada-James is listed at the same plot and grave number but only her name is on the marker. Other Straits in Acacia are Clifford 1885-1941, Ethel C 1887-1931 and Nathan Micheal 1982 lived only one day.
Do you want any/all of these?

RE: Copas Cemetery
You are very welcome - This poor, sad burial ground is in a huge mess. We do have survey data and some death cert records, so I was able to figure out which of the two fallen over markers were which. We need a backhoe or similar lifting device to upright those markers, plus the bases must be reset first - plus it is several hundred feet off the road and up a hill. Don't know that we'll be able to get to that, at least anytime soon. I am going to go back and at least clear back some brush so that the markers are at least more visible. I did not have my tools with me that day I photgraphed. I will rephotograph as I can, so check back from time to time. Gordon (CSTNET)

Find A Grave Memorial# 46106564
This is a collateral family for me, for which I followed bread-crumbs for a cousin.

As I was entering data from Find-a-Grave today, I noticed this:

Jacob H. Hess (1862 - 1923)*
Sarah Ellen Hess Pittman (1868 - 1931)
Samuel A. Hess (1870 - 1924)*
John F. Hess (1875 - 1951)*
Mary Elizabeth Hess Pittman (1920 - 2002)*

I would have preferred a private comm on this, but since it's important, I'll settle for public:

Mary Elizabeth cannot physically be a sibling of Sarah Ellen. -- Sarah Ellen's parents died in 1901 and 1913, so the mother had been dead 7 years by the time Mary E. was born.

I'm not "up" on the family, so I don't know where the problem lies, but figured I should mention it as a problem and potentially misleading to a researcher with more at stake than I have.

Ermine Estes Cabell
Ermine and James Allen Cabell are my wife's great grandparents. Can you tell us where the Cabell Cemetery is located in Barren County? Juanita has always wanted to visit Ermine's grave since she was given Ermine's bracelet and photo as a young child. Ermine and James' son George Samuel was her grandfather.

Traci's Mom
Traci Fields
Thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!

This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.
