RE: Thomas P Lemmon Homer Cem.
Anna Belle Lemmon was my wife's Aunt. She was Isabelle L. Marr, her mother was Mae Ester Lemmon a younger sister of Anna Belle. Thomas and Mary Lemmon were her maternal Grandfather and Grandmother.

The Marr's lived in Pierpont and Langford and had businesses in both towns untill they started farming East of Lanford. I can provide much more data if you wish.

RE: Barbara Ellen Leaf McCartney
Here's the source I found on the Rowland Family Genealogy Forum. Most of my records said Barbara remarried to McCartney but then in Dec. 2012 I added the name Thomas E. Davis. See reference below to marriage license #. That's all I know and I can change the findagrave reference if you want.

In Reply to: ROWLAND,Joseph Leaf Sr., b.1830, England by Charlotte Jordan of 3417

Joseph Rowland married Ellen Leaf, both from Sheffield, England according to family lore. I posted Sept. 22, 1999: Joseph Henry ROWLAND, b. Feb. 11, 1828 in England (Sheffield?), came to U.S. (when?), married in Pittsburg, PA to (Barbara) Ellen LEAF, from Sheffield, England. What are his parents' names? He died Feb. 2, 1885 in Iowa.
They had 10 children: James (b. PA, 1852?), William (b. IN?), Joseph Jr. (B. IA), Martha (b.IA), John (b. IA), Alice May (b. IA), and two daughter who died in childhood.
Alice May is my husband's great-grandmother; she is buried in Portland, Oregon.
The family is listed in the 1870 census, O'Brien County, Iowa, and same county, 1880, but three households. Joseph Jr. is still with parents.
Joseph Sr. died Feb. 9, 1885; buried in Covey Cemetery, Grant Township, O'Brien County, Iowa.
Ellen (Leaf) Rowland then married Thomas E. Davis (license #313 on Dec. 30, 1885), then married John McCartney (license #583, Nov. 18, 1888). She died July 20, 1903, as Ellen McCartney, and is buried in Pleasant View Cemetery in Hartley, Iowa.
We visited Iowa in July, 2000, and have photos of both tombstones for Joseph Sr. and Ellen.

Thankyou for your time getting the photos for us. At one time my sisters had visited the graves and had taken photos but have been lost or miss placed over the years, I had never seen the photos so this means much more to me, Vahna passed when my father (George) was 14 and shortly afterwards his father abandoned him, leaving him to deal with life on his own, my father never forgave him for that, I only met my grandfather once in summer of 69 when my Dads brother brought him from Colorado to Missouri to visit. Dad hadn't seen him in 30 years and I remember the tension between them, my Dad never returned to Colorado and never talked much about his youth. But I do remember talking about his mother Vahna and how much he thought of her, I'm retired and hoping one day I can visit the graves for Dad and myself and find a few relatives still living in that area. Thanks again for your time I appreciate it very much, George Yeager

Sorry for so many replies! He was kind of a nomad and died on a ranch. Find A Grave# 41449441. I don't see any other Perkins in that city.

RE: Mary Perkins
That is a great idea. I cannot find her after 1880 though, and her husband died 1904. I'll still check that out just in case (it was definitely the case for their daughter, who married 7 times!)

RE: Mary Perkins
Thank you for your work. I am looking for Mary, the wife of Moccasin Bill Perkins (early Colorado bear hunter). She is listed with him in Dade, Missouri in the census, having kids with him in Kansas a few years later, but then disappears in Colorado when one of their older daughters, Eleanor, is twenty.

Their daughter, I found, Find A Grave Memorial# 129794554

And the husband was easy, Find A Grave Memorial# 41449441

But I'll have to do more digging to find her. Thank you!

RE: Evelyn Befus
Would you please remove that picture that you added to Evelyn Befus. I sent a message to the Longmont Genealogical Society and asked them to add to her memorial that there is no headstone marking her grave but that the cemetery office has record of her being buried there.

RE: Re: Ida Ferrar

I was concerned with the timing issue of the swap also, so I preempted the situation by uploading the two photos for Ida and registering a problem with the requester saying that the photo request had already been satisfied and that the request should be removed.

Bottom line, both husband and wife photos have been uploaded in what I believe will be a satisfactory method, and the Ida request has been removed.

Thanks for working with me on this. I am on my system much of the day, but often off doing other research or blogging.

Best regards,
