RE: Yule Kilcher
Everyone on ancestry & findagrave, says his birth name was Julius, this is not correct, His birth name was Jules Jacob Kilcher, Jules is pronounced Yule in English(silent s).
If you look at the census records you will see until he got into politics in Alaska, he was always called Jules, (never Julius)
Just thought I would share...for what it is worth.
fascinating family!

Juanita Pearl DePriest Rathbun
Solved the problem. I actually had an old group sheet submitted by Juanita! She was born Juanita Pearl DePriest to John Martin and Susan Anna (Frances) DePriest. She was adopted at the age of 4 by Benjamin and Maggie Simpson. Her obituary reads "Juanita Rathbun. Mrs. H. W. Juanita Rathbun, 87, died November 29, 2004 in Yuma, Arizona. She was born October 3, 1917, the daughter of Ben and Maggie Simpson. She was a homemaker and a member of the Weslyan Church in Lincoln, Kansas. She was preceded in death by her husband, Howard W. Rathbun. Survivors include a daughter Parthene Parson, Anchorage, Alaska and a son Howard E. Rathbun, Houston, Texas, 4 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great grandchildren. Memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on December 19 at Binford Hall, 13454 E. 43rd. St., Yuma, Arizona. Memorials may be made to the Binford Hall, c/o Parthene Parson."

I noticed you had written that Edythe and Rowland had one known child, Dorothy. Dorothy's headstone is inscribed with "sister". I wonder where her sibling(s) are? I will do a bit of searching.

Have a good day,

Patrick Tuohy
Hello Vicki, We have been searching for Patrick for many years. Just recently we learned of Patrick's admission and death at Stockton State Hospital through documents. You can imagine how happy we were to learn of him and then to read further in his record to find he had died of such a sad death. I searched the Stockton State Hospital website to learn that the cemetery had basically been abandoned with may be some graves moved. Such sadness treatment for the final resting place of these already ill and forgotten souls.
Can you give me more information about the cemetery? Does Patrick have a headstone? How were you able to access information about Patrick and I was unable to locate anything?
Can you place a picture on his page of at least the cemetery or photo of the hospital?
Thank you for helping us find Patrick's final resting place. We'd thought may be the family may have arranged for burial elsewhere but, no one had any information.
I was also under the impression Patrick's middle initial was a "J" so can you share where you learned of the "F" that you have indicated on his page?
Again Thank YOU so much for sharing this information and creating a page for our beloved Patrick.
Kind regards, Nancy & Jim Tuohy

RE: John Russell Parker
There are two John Russell Parker's buried at East lawn Park both were born and died within 5 years of each other. I used the spouses names to try and narrow it down. I will gladly transfer both memorials to you since one is a family member and you can always transfer back the one who is not once you have determined which one is a relative. Just let me know.

RE: Stewart (family cemetery)
I believe there is more burials there, I know we missed some when we got the ones that we posted. The cemetery is maintained very little, we will go back in the fall though and look it out again.

John Parker
Hello Vicki,

I am happy to find John Parker, son of John Alexander Parker and Nancy Ruark. I am actually a descendant of Nancy Ruark's half brother Benjamin F. Ruark (AKA Benjamin Franklin). I am wondering if you might know who Nancy Ruark's mother was? I know it is a long shot but thought I would take a chance.

Thank you,

RE: LaHoma Maxine King
Thank you. I just found her real father, His name is Glen Coffin. Her mother married him in 1922 and they has Lahoma later on that year. He died when Lahoma was almost 6 months old in 1923. After his death, her mother remarried and his name was, Earnest King. They got married in 1928 and they moved to Kansas. Her mother is laid to rest in Kansas. With Earnest and his first wife. Her dad Glen had a family before Lahoma's mom. Don't know if Lahoma ever knew, she had half sisters that lived here. I just added her dad since he was not on Find A Grave. If you talk to anyone on that side and they want to get in touch with me. Please pass my info to them. I would love it. I'm pretty easy going. Thank you for your help. Have a wonderful weekend.

Corp Asa Pennington
I'm confused. While not directly related to Asa, I did run across him while working on other branches of Penningtons.
In the memorial, there seems to be some confusion as to when he died. The first paragraph states 26 Sep 1853 and that he is the son of Timothy & Susanna Nancy Rigs Pennington.
In the 2nd paragraph, it states he is the son of Asa and Mary Tyler Pennington and that he died 1 Nov 1853.
So are we talking 2 different Asa Penningtons, with both listed on the same memorial?
Thanks in advance for the clarification.

RE: John Conti Clovis, CA Cemetery
Hi Vicki, thank you for the offer for me to take over the memorial for John Conti, my uncle, at Clovis Cemetery in Clovis, CA. I would like to do so if you can tell me how to do that and what is required. I appreciate the fact that you visited the cemetery and took photographs of the grave stone.

RE: Bryson
That is very interesting. I have spend a lot of time getting Mt. Olive sorted out and photos of headstones put up and verifying burials there. I drive by it every Sunday to church. When I saw this memorial for "Bryson" in Marionville, my first thought was of the Bryson Infant over in Mt. Olive, and wondered if they were, perhaps, siblings!!

Thank you so much for figuring it out. I'm now working on Marionville. Just about six weeks ago there were about 2400 memorials in this cemetery and now we are up to almost 4500. I've been utilizing the 1987 transcription book to create memorials, then hubby and I go out and photograph them. There are a couple of other contributors who are also seemingly working on photographs. We are at 94% of the 4500 photographed.

Still a lot to do! Thanks for your help!
