Lois Simer, not Aimer at Orient Cemetery

I should have noticed when I sent you the request that the memorial for Lois has her surname misspelled. It should be "Simer" not "Aimer." I have sent an edit to the creator of the memorial. I am very sorry to have wasted your time looking for a nonexistent person. Please accept my apology.

Here is the obit for Otto Dodd

North Vernon Sun November 6. 1892


Dodd - Otto, aged 14 years at the home of his father, In Paris Crossing, on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 1892, of diphtheria.

Not until the last few hours of his illness was his malady considered dangerous, but the messenger of death came swift and sure and bore his spirit away before his family and friends could realize that he was gone from them. He was a bright, warm-hearted boy, and in ability was beyond his years. He was bright and cheerful and had a smile and kind word for all he met. He had more than ordinary musical ability - was assistant leader in the Paris Crossing Band - and made many friends and acquaintances in that capacity. A short funeral was conducted by Rev. Jewett, of Paris, and after which the remains were born to the Coffee Creek cemetery by the members of the Band and laid beside those of his mother, there to remain until the Heavenly Band shall call him forth on the resurrection morn to sound praise of the Great Jehovah.

There is a duplicate memorial #(121437498) for Phoebe Belding, I personally think there should be only one memorial for each person, some may not agree. Consider this note an FYI, any further action is up to you.

RE: William Baker
No one seems to want to go into Liberty. I have family buried there, and I'm the only one who ever goes ....too many ticks! I put out flags for Memorial Day. That's why I asked Alan Sparks if I could use his photos from their website. I only added this one for Mr. Baker because I thought it was a bit easier to read. Thanks.

You have these people listed under Freeman Cemetery, Freeman, Cass County, Missouri, USA but you might find they are buried in Rosebank Cemetery, Mulberry, Kansas. There are two entries for John and Lucy there by people I don't know. One is quite extensive. I have visited these grave sites myself as they are related through my mother's side.

I have a photo of the gravestone and it is exactly of the one you have for Freeman Cemetery.

I found this connection via and thought it might be one I worked on. Just thought you might want to know.

RE: LaVerne Smith
Thank you so much for the information, which is fascinating, and very helpful.

LaVerne and I are 3rd cousins. Her father Kirby was the son of Othena Craig Morgan (memorial n. 50884990), who was the daughter of John Craig (memorial n. 46265125). Othena's sister, Annie Irah Craig(memorial n. 26766092), was my grandfather Odra Lusby's (memorial n. 130485698) mother.

I came across the name 'Ruckdeschel' in Kirby's obituary.

I am especially interested in the fact that Ethel and her sister married two brothers. That makes mapping a family tree very complicated indeed!

Thank you again for the information,

LaVerne Smith
Hello Richard,

I am trying to determine whether or not your cousin, LaVerne Smith, may be a distant relative of mine. Do you happen to know if she was at one time married to a Mr. Ruckdeschel? And was her father Kirby L. Morgan (memorial number 3676179)? I am related to Kirby through his mother, Othena Craig.

Thank you for any information you are able to provide.

Happy 6th Year Anniversary with Find A Grave!
Hello Richard,
I was searching a distant relative and found your gravestone photo on the web page for Elizabeth Jane Dobson (memorial # 14196050) and noticed that you have created over 33,000 memorials, and provided over 28,000 photos! So I just wanted to thank you for your contribution to find a grave, and for the all the help you provide to other members like me. Best wishes to you!
P.S. love your photo!
Happy Trails,
Dave from Dallas

John William Prosser

I believe the birth date of John William Prosser is incorrect. The 1850 Census for the parents state he is 6 yrs old making the date of birth to be abt 1844 which is consistent with having the FATHER alive at the time.

Also in Millar-duBois Family history and Genealogy it is stated on pg 220 that "John William Prosser born Aug 7, 1856 named for an older brother who died". Again consistent with the death date for the first John William Prosser born.

John William Prosser and Valerie are 1st cousins 3 times removed. Their common ancestors are Abraham Van Meter and Elizabeth Parsons.

Moser Family
Hi Richard, So sorry for the delay in processing your request to link Amos Moser to his parents. The system never sent me an e-mail about the request, so I just happen to find it today. I'm curious, are you related to the Mosers? If so, we are probably related, since they are my 2nd and 3rd Great Grandparents. PMcA
