Cindy Taylor
? Duncan
Cindy Taylor here. I believe I contacted you previously, being related to the Duncans in Duncan Cemetery. Someone on Ancestry has put a lot of Austin misinfo on Ancestry about the branch of Austins that I am related to, including Elizabeth Austin Duncan. They are saying she is Alta Elizabeth, who I believe is George Duncan's wife, according to headstones in the Duncan Cemetery. But my question is: is the headstone engraved with "...Duncan, wife of CT Duncan" who died in 1878, is that Elizabeth Austin Duncan (my great aunt)??? It is SUCH a difficult family to research and make absolute sense out of! Charles T. Duncan, my great uncle by marriage, married a younger sister of Elizabeth's, Margaret or Maggie. They are both buried at the T.H. Brown Cemetery, Oak Grove. I am almost sure that ? Duncan is Elizabeth, not Alta Elizabeth. What do you think?

Thanks for creating the record for my grandmother Agnes. I found the grave and submitted the coordinates. This was my first time and I learned that a minus sign is important for longitude; otherwise, you end up in China.

Joseph StCloud IRWIN
Mary Kavanaugh
Mary is buried in the Irwin plot with 5 infant
children of S.H.& J.S. Irwin. From an old Irwin
bible of Mary Hamilton Chiles Irwin, it is said
that Mary Kavanaugh was the D/O Rev William W
Kavanaugh of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church
Indep. 1832 further that she married Samuel James
Irwin ca. 1830. one of their children was J.S.
Irwin and his wife Sarah. No surviving issue ?
Samuel had two brothers, William Lee Irwin &
Martha Ann Lucas and Joseph Chambers Irwin &
Mary Hamilton Chiles both well known around Indep
He also had two sisters Susan Hall Irwin,
Elizabeth Ann Irwin & John Parker. All of this
leads me to ask you if you know was Mary Kavanaugh
married to Samuel Irwin ? or why is she buried in the Irwin plot ? This is a big piece of the
Irwin puzzle. I would be interested in your
thoughts as I have been working on this since
1977. Sorry for the wordy message. Thanks !

Confederates in Concord Cemetery, Cooper County
I recently sent you a note concerning Riley Crawford and the grave location for him that I found in historical society records.

I thought you might be interested to know that there are two more confederate soldiers who died that same year (I'm guessing in the same skirmish), who are also buried in that cemetery.
They are Joshua Lampton # 133882443 and a Jones whose first name is unknown, #133882729

Leonard Louis Meador
Lelia J Ruggles, Memorial# 40722213
I noticed on her marriage license her date of birth was given as September 7, 1907 as opposed to September 4, 1907 on her grave marker. Not sure which is correct.
Also gives her place of birth as Purdin, Missouri and widowed 3 times.

John N. Coombes
I too am a member of the Civil War Round Table of Western Missouri. I cannot put a face with your name, but presume we have both been to meetings at the same time. We will have to get together and talk Civil War one of these days.

I am looking for the grave site of John N. Coombes. He is buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery in Independence, and you placed a picture of his grave stone in Find-A-Grave. Can you tell me in which section of the cemetery he is buried? Or give me some other identifying feature to help me find his stone.

Thank you for your time and kind assistance.

Best regards,

Wilma Younger Norton
John Younger, spouse of Ellen (Holland) Younger
Memorial #44894406. I am a Younger by birth and research this line, even those not in my direct line. I don't believe that the John Younger who is referenced to be Ellen (Holland) Younger's spouse is just John. I believe he was John Joseph or Joseph John - I found a death certificate in the Kentucky Death Records that I believe to be him. I should also mention that I found Ellen Younger in the 1900 census and she was a widow at that tieme. All of their 8 children were born in Covington, Kenton, KY and that is where I found the record I refer to. From my notes:
Kentucky Death Records, 1852-1953 for Joseph Younger. Physician's Certificate #162, found at
Name of Deceased: Joseph Younger - I believe this is John Joseph Younger. White, Male, age 51 years. Married, Died March 24th, 1886 at Kenton County, KY from Cirrhosis of Liver. He was a saloon keeper, born in Germany and lived in 8th Ward, 5th Street, No. 161 for 35 years. Burial was St. Mary's Cemetery on March 27. I believe this is Ellen Holland's deceased husband, I found her as a widow in the 1900 census and she is also buried at St. Mary's Cemetery.

Please contact me if you want to discuss this.

Sarah J. Wilson # 71694565
Hello Ron, I entered some edits for Sarah J. Wilson # 71694565. I have not located her Husband, David C. Wilson, in Woodlawn cem. or any other cemetery. I have the family bible info that was handed down to my great Uncle. They read:
-Sarah Jane Walker daughter of John and Talitha Walker was born September 9th 1822
-David C. Wilson and Sarah J. Walker were married May 24th 1843
-Sarah Jane Wilson the wife of David C. Wilson departed this life on the 29th day of August AD 1880 in the 58th year of her age
-David C. Wilson died Febuary 28/89 aged 72 years 6months & 6 days

I also manage her father's memorial, John Walker, and would appreciate if you link her to him. (Memorial# 5645009)

I also have a picture of Sarah if you wouldn't mind me adding it to her memorial.

Thanks for your consideration into this and for all the work you have done. I hope to one day contribute as much as you have.
