Rattlesnake Kate
Thank you so much for this "memorial" - I grew up hearing about "Rattlesnake" Kate from my husband's family! Somehow over the years the newspaper article and original photos had disappeared and I wanted her unique story and place in our family preserved - for my grandchildren, if no one else! Really appreciate you putting this on-line. Thanks for all your efforts! I won't say "work" because I bet you enjoy every single minute of sharing this type of genealogical recording!

Hi, Kathy,
Can you transfer these two to me? I have recently come upon some great information for them, and I would love to include it in their memorials.

If you prefer, I can just pass on the information to you and have you put it in their memorials.

As always, thanks for everything you do!

Best regards, Tracy Howard

Permission to post photos
Hello Cathy,

I've found a couple photos of relatives you've posted and am wondering if you mind if I post them to my online tree if I give you photo credit and link back to F.A.G? I understand if you are not comfortable with that, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Thanks for the great photos!

Thank you!
Thank you so much for transferring family members to me, Cathy. You did a beautiful job and it means so much to me to be able to visit my relatives and care for their pages. Some haven't been so kind when I've even asked for a simple addition and I was feeling a little sad/frustrated about this site. Thank you for being here for the right reasons and helping to archive history! :)

Their memorial is #33107595. I finally got around to uploading my photo of their headstone, taken in the summer with green grass. Now there are two showing. For some reason the engraving on my photo seems to show up better. If you agree, would you please remove your photo of this headstone so there aren't two of them on the memorial.

Thanks for all you do, Cathy. You are a wonderful Find A Grave member! Regards, Tracy Howard

Catherine / Henry Crawford
I'm thinking their may of been two Henry Crawford's born around 1844. Several people have mine 1844-1890 ~ parents as Cyrus Grawford and Catherine Kessingger , I don't think that's correct. Mine was married to a Lucy , and Cyrus and Catherine's Henry was married to a Margaret.
As far as the info. I found on Catherine Kessinger Crawford buried at Van Buren Cemetery.
Father ~ John 1787-1838 and his father Johnannes 1758-1806. Thiers documents on the tree of Donald Dowell Wilsdorf family tree, not able to post a photo of the doc. on this. NOTE : If you do a birth/death search for Catherine Kessingner birth Oct 26 1822 and death Sep 16 1905 and add spouse Cyrus Crawford first so you can add the dates , then click on all collection , then click on family tree and you should see Donald's family tree. Hope I was clear on the way to searh, If not fell free to ask. also my email is . I had deleted Catherine off my tree , but willing to help if needed !

Kessinger family
I went ahead and deleted all the Kessinger's from my tree, I don't think she was the mother of my Henry Crawford. I got that from several other trees , and on a 1860 census, but death date don't match and mine died in Illinois.

RE: Van Buren Cemetery
Just found her father's name from someone's tree , John b. 1787 and siblings George b. 1813 , Mary Ann b. 1817 , John b. 1819 and Susannah b. 1820. I'm pretty sure that Henry is Catherine's son that are both born in The Van Buren Cemetery. Problem I have now , is people have Henry married to a Margaret and I have Lucy . So I need to go back and see how I got that Henry.

Van Buren Cemetery
Hi Cathy ... Noticed your last name being Kessinger and you had made a memorial at Van Buren for a Henry Thomas Crawford. Wondering if related to Catherine B.(Kessingner) Crawford
memorial # 90014401 . If so, is the Henry Crawford memorial # 90014343 Catherine's son ?
The Henry I have for her son was born in 1944 the same , but different death date . But I may of got that from someone else . My Henry Crawford is the father of Zola (Crawford) Hartman ~ my great grandmother. Any help would be appreciated , Thanks ! Deborah
