RE: Wilson & Wiley
So glad you are getting the Orient Cem. completed and photographed. Big job. And I do hope you'll have a chance to start adding obits. Any you find for my memorials, please send my way, I am always glad to see them added. It kills my sould to have to pay $5 per obit now for Cass Co., so I haven't ordered any more in quite awhile. So any you can add will be greatly appreciated.

RE: Henry Davis @ Missouri Training School for Boys
I am amazed how many memorials you have produced. Find-A-Grave still has not replied to my request to remove the Missouri State Training School memorial that was transferred to me. Guess I'll keep waiting. . . .

RE: Henry Davis @ Missouri Training School for Boys
I wonder if that person is not looking and/or is new to Find-A-Grave. I NEVER want to install a duplicate memorial and try not to do it, but sometimes I just get in a hurry I guess. Thanks for your help and understanding. I've not heard from Find A Grave yet on my request.

RE: Henry Davis @ Missouri Training School for Boys
I apologize for not knowing the rules better - when I requested the 2010 memorial, I was unaware of the rules. Ok - my bad. So, what can I/we do to correct the problem? Shall I attempt to remove the "illegal" memorial, then you might transfer yours to me? All I want to do is to remove duplicates. After writing you, and found another duplicate which you have 1/2 of.

I am trying to clean up the listings for this cemetery, and Henry Davis is listed three times - one being from you. Will you please remove your listing from Find-A-Grave?

RE: Emily Beegles
It's a mystery to me as to who is buried in that unmarked plot you photographed beside Elizabeth Watson Burton Beegles in Orient Cemetery. You were guessing it was her daughter, Emily. However, her daughter Emily married a Tuttle and is buried in Kansas (memorial #85075015). She has the same given name as her mother, Emily Elizabeth Watson Burton Beegles.

Elizabeth the elder herself has a given name of Emily Elizabeth, and there is a marker on her grave, which I found on a duplicate memorial 8298504. I have asked the owner of this photo, Jane Anne Pennington, to please transfer it over to memorial 8291020, so the duplicate memorial can be deleted. So far she has not honored that request.

The duplicate memorials (8291020 and 8298504) in FindaGrave for Emily Elizabeth Watson Burton Beegles, were both created by the same person, but she has so far not honored my request to delete one of them.

I suspect the plot you photographed next to Elizabeth Burton Beegles is a lost child. We know she did lose 5 Burton children quite young, but I have tracked down the grave sites of all the children we know she had. Perhaps this is one who was born and died unnamed between censuses. I'll remain on the lookout!

Richard, thank you for the quick response to my several edits and links for these family members. I am trying to get them all sorted out, so many marriages between the two families, and they all used the same given names. Beware, I am only about half way through my list....

This a long obituary he is a relative of mine by marriage.

Obituary North Vernon Sun

Rev. William H. Lawrence was born near New Washington, Clark County, Ind., May 17, 1821 and answered the summons of death at 10:30, Jan. 25th 1897, being 75 years, 8 months and 8 days of age. His father John Lawrence, was born in the state of South Carolina in 1795, and after his marriage, located in Clark County, Ind., where his son William H. Lawrence, or Henry, as he was called, was born. In 1822 his father, located on a farm about one and one-half miles south-east of Lovett station. Henry was the second child, Jesse being the older, he had one younger brother, Benjamin and eight sisters, who were all born after he located near what is now Lovett station. In the winter of 1839 he was chosen to teach school in a small log school house, which was located on the farm now owned by Z. T. Denslow, J. P., who was one of his pupils. At the age of 19 he joined the Mount Mariah, Baptist Church, Elder Thomas Hill being pastor at that time. Elders Stott and Cox also had charge of this church for a number of years as did also Elder Swincher, all of whom have long since answered the same summons that called from earth to heaven them and him, who like they conscientiously and zealously did all he could to call men to repentance and to point out to men and women the narrow and straight path that leads to everlasting life. His brother Jesse was living near Freedom Church, south of Vernon, during the Cholera scourge in 1849 and they administered to the wants of many colored victims of that dreaded disease, laying their bodies to rest with tears and prayers when others refused to perform so hazardous a risk. For a number of years he was the regular pastor of a number of churches in this and adjoining counties. In 1850 he was married to Luvina Lewis, daughter of Daniel Lewis and to them were born six children, two boys and four girls, five of whom survive to mourn the loss of a loving kind and indulgent father and who, except one were present to drop a tear of sorrow over the grave of one who had done so much in their behalf. His wife Luvina, dropped dead on the 4th of August 1879, under the same roof where he received his last summons. In 1880 he married Mrs. Mary J. Corya, widow of John W. Corya, having two children, George and William, at the time of her marriage to Mr. Lawrence. He gave to her children the same fatherly care as he did to his own. They as long as life lasts will keep green his memory and many kind acts toward them. No person was ever turned away without food or shelter who called upon him. In 1866 he became the owner of what was called the Jas. Harmon farm, about one mile east of the present station of Commiskey, where he has ever since resided. In 1877 through his personal means and efforts he witnessed the completion of the Commiskey Baptist Church. After his marriage with Mrs. Corya, they united with this church, where he remained a faithful member to the time of his death. For twenty-five years he has been a patient sufferer with asthma or hay-fever. While in the midst of pain he would say if it is the Lord's will I am prepared to meet my God. His last moments in life were calm and peaceful, dying without a struggle. After death his countenance shined forth as in life, the general expression that he is resting as though in sleep. In the death of Mr. Lawrence the county has lost one of her best citizens; his neighbors and acquaintances and honored, faithful and consistent friend, his children a indulgent, loving and Christian father, his wife a dutiful, affectionate and kind husband, and the church a zealous advocate of the cause which has been the hope of millions who have, like he, passed over the river of life and will continue to be the steadfast hope and anchor of millions of men and women yet unborn. His life has been one that will live after him, and thousands of men and women now living, who knew him will drop a silent tear and offer up a silent prayer that their ending may be founded upon the same safe and sure foundation that was his aim and hope in life, anchor and solace when his spirit was taking its flight from the tenement of clay to take on life everlasting. Rest in peace.

Inscription on tombstone;

"Born in Clark County, Indiana. He has preached the word of God to sinful men many years, near where his mortal remains now rest. Father, it is the prayer of your children who mark your resting place that their lives be as pure and there deeds as good as yours"

This person's age does not add up to the parents; unless he is a grandchild; Elizabeth would of been near 70 at his birth.

I have a son Michael s/o Francis & Elizabeth born 28 Jul 1786 - 23 Oct 1851

This Michael could be a son of Edward & Ruth Morris Pace

Which would make him a grandson of Francis & Elizabeth Robinson Pace
