William McCuistion #162555983
Vicki, Thank you so much!!
I had pretty much given up looking for this William McCuistion several years ago. I am thrilled that you found him! Although his death is listed in the old Family Bible, no place or cause of death is given. All these years I never thought to look in San Joaquin County, since the family never lived there.
Re: The photo of the card from the Calif State Library.... It lists the mother of Noah McCuistion as Martha McClary. This is an error, his mother was Elizabeth "Betsy" McWhorter.
Many Thanks, L Mastan

RE: John D. Winters
I too had a relative that was put in an asylum - Bryce - Tuscaloosa, AL. From the records I viewed while visiting with my great-aunt, many years ago, it seems that he was unhappy there and wanted to come home. The Dr's wanted him to stay. There were letters going back and forth between him and his kin. It seems there was an event and he nipped off part of a Dr's ear... His last letter home was dated a few days after he died...? I'm not sure if it was a typo or what, but it makes me wonder. Did some else write that last letter to cover up something. We will never know.

He was buried in the hospital's cemetery. Some of it is under the interstate and there are no records to indicate exactly where he was buried in that section. We did visit the section and looked around - very few markers and less inscriptions.

I had asked to see John's records back in 1993, but since I'm not a close family member I did not apply.

Thanks again for bringing the record to my attention.

RE: John D. Winters
You have the correct man. His bio indicated that he was blind and that was the reason for going to the state hospital. I tend to believe the record that you uncovered.

Thanks, Bryan

RE: John Flemming Burton
Just talked to another cousin and I may be wrong, she said that there was talk of him having another child with another woman but that they didn't get married and he wasn't with her long. So maybe this Alex is another son of his.

RE: John Flemming Burton
I have the info on Hester Ann, for I have been in contact with several of my relatives on this side of my family and none of them have ever mentioned that Alexander ever had any more children or another wife. These children living with Susie are too young to be Alexander's because they were born way after his death I know that you have her connected to the wrong Alexander Grigsby.

RE: Alexander Grigsby
I really have my doubts that it is the same Alexander Grigsby because he lived mostly in the Tollhouse area with his daughter and her family (Hester )

Alexander Y Grigsby
Are you sure about Susie being his wife, he is my 3rd great grandfather and we have never found him remarried after his 1st wife. I looked up Susie and she has several children born long after his death carrying the Grigsby name. There were several Grigsby's that lived in Ca. she may have been married to another one.

RE: Taylor Family Corrections, etc.
Thank you and you are welcome. I got a little confused myself when I took the picture. I think it had been reported that Nancy was born in 1860. Then when I noticed 1840 on the stone I realized this was Edwards wife instead of his daughter. Nancy is buried between Margaret & Edward with Edward S. next to his father. The Sizemores & Shraders derectly in front of them in the next row. There are about 30 graves, more than half with no names. There are two graves in the corner on the opposite side with rocks arranged around each in the same manner. One has a rock at the head with this scratched in barely legible(Manaph). I'm thinking it was an attempt to spell Mahaffey. I always get intrigued with these old cemeteries and have to find out as much as I can.

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."

Dorothy Hughes
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.
