RE: Thanks so much
You're welcome. I am sure there will be some more once I start getting through all these photos I took last year. :)

Just curious, is this a man or a woman?
I have a woman who was married at one time to a man by this name,she just died,
I think they were divorced. She was older than he, by two
I cannot answer who this is, if its a man or
woman., I would do the 1920 census for Oklahoma
Kiowa Co. and see if you can tell that way.

You sent a message to me relative to his memorial, which I do not understand. The obituary states his mother is Elizabeth Ashley. Do you think there is a problem with his birth or death dates? I don't understand?? 2015 minus 99 years old when he died would be a birth date of 1916.

Is this Isaiah Franklin Lister? That also has a military Civil War stone? They used Lister/Lester.

RE: Dupe
Haha, well we might have to mutually pardon each other for some of our Facebook posts then :)

Let me know when you want the transfer of 2000 ish RC memorials I have. Is there an easy way to accomplish that?

I have a few hundred from Nebraska pioneer cemeteries I'd like to keep as they are my ancestors, otherwise everything in RC can goto you, I don't have family buried in RC.

RE: Dupe
Regarding pine lawn, I have walked and uploaded photos to all but four remaining blocks. I suspect I'll have walked and photographed everything by early next year unless I get some free days, currently I only go there for an 1-2 hours per week over lunch. Have to bend over a lot to clear all the grass clippings and pine needles from almost every marker.

Regarding MTV/MTC I know I ended up creating some unintentional duplicates when photographing some of the infant markers. I didn't put together that makers like "Inf Arnsn" would actually be the marker for "Infant Aronson". Obvious enough, but I was thinking too literal about names initially. I've tried to find all the infant markers on the Far East perimeter of both cemeteries, I fear they will be covered up again next by sod again though, I wish there was a simple way to keep them marked above the sod (?).

If I've ended up creating a memorial you want to update, just let me know and I will transfer it. And, if you ever need to dispatch someone out to find a marker or anything let me know. maybe together we can get RC's cemeteries catalogued to your quality sooner than you think. :)

I'll send you a friend invite on Facebook.

Have a good night, I'll let you know on Next Tuesday.

RE: Dupe
No worries, I'll check what my schedule looks like for next Tuesday morning. If there any updates for bio/obits that you have, you can send me the id and I will transfer them over for you. I've got Pine Lawn about 85% walked, photographed, and recorded.

I might start a ground walk and photograph at Mtn view again, I imagine you've already experienced the frustration there with the amount of unmarked graves. I read your research and book at the library which helped me gain a better understanding of the unmarked and mass burials at Mtn view. I've true to focus on locating some of the infant markers which appear to to have succumb to the sod and are also not well engraved, with light markings, broken markers, and abbreviated/alternated name ect.

Still gotta get together for coffee:)

James William Harney Sr.
E D Dad Haggard
There is a memorial to Lieut. Edward D. Haggard #77880146 with a picture of his military tombstone in Olive Branch Cemetery, White Cloud, Kansas. It is likely he is buried in Deadwood but the family had a stone placed in their local cemetery where other family members are buried. Edward or Edmund was a first cousin to my G-Grandfather Henry Clay Harney (Horney), the man who discovered the Homestake Gold mine in 1876. Perhaps this is why Edmund was in Deadwood. Would be nice if you could reference the memorial in Kansas on your memorial # 135802602.

RE: Thanks for the heads up
Thanks for your reply! My guess is that, since he's buried in the Bancroft cemetery, your brain combined the two pieces of information. That sort of thing is happening to me more and more often as the years go by!

You have Sitting Bear in St. Anthony with the same death date of 11 Oct 1918, as my Joseph Sitting Bear, so, I may have to delete since you have him already.

RE: Sitting Bear
So, what cemetery do you think he should be in?

RE: Holy Bear
Well, if you look again at the death certificate,
It say 'investigation', also by the date, so it is possible
That the date on the death certificate could be wrong....
And that would be why it is hard to find.

I just used the name of the Cemetery that was on the Headstone Application, if you find him elsewhere, let me know, thanks.

No, sorry. The show might have been under a different name.
Google Wild West Shows and there is general history on

Ok, I deleted it...I have no other information, if I find it, I will let you know. That was one of those Western Shows they used to travel around the country, like Buffalo Bill's Show, etc...

Just put Holy Bear in the last name search of Our Lady of Lourdes and both memorials will come up.

Well you have the death date different than I do,
Do you want to copy the death certificate to your
Memorial before I delete it?

RE: Holy Bear
Ok, I fixed it, but it seems you have already created his memorial, you did not mention that, so I will have to delete it after all that.
