Thomas and Ruth (Barnett) Wilson
According to a Wilson history book, DESCENDANTS OF CHRISTOPHER WILLSON OF YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND AND NEW CASTLE COUNTY, DELAWARE, (Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 84-153655), Thomas Wilson was born Aug 2, 1803 in Clinton Co, OH, and died March 10, 1888 and was buried in North Branch Cemetery, Earlham. His Wife Ruth was born March 29, 1834 in Marion Co., IN, and died May 12, 1885 also buried in North Branch Cemetery, Earlham, IA. Neither of these graves are currently listed in North Branch Cemetery on the Find a Grave site. I am only somewhat familiar with the cemetery. Their stones would be very old. Do you know whether there are old stones that are not documented because they are unreadable?
Louise Hartman, descended from John and Lydia Wilson who are also buried in North Branch Cemetery and whose grave stones appear to be 20th century replacements of older stones.

Michael Schulte
Ronald Thomas Salyer
Good morning: I have emailed a couple of times about adding the published obituary for my high school classmate, Ronald Thomas Salyer, buried in Highland Cemetery, Ashland, Kansas. I provided the obituary published in the Spearville News. The obituary also provided information on possible links to his father Thomas D. Salyer, also buried in the same cemetery. I used the shirleyw55 address.

With the assistance and consideration of other Find A Grave contributors, the other obituaries for my deceased high school classmates have been added--Walt B. Giessel, Mary E. Klenke Hornung, and David Brumbaugh, St. John Cemetery, Spearville, KS and Protection, KS respectively.

It would be helpful to receive some correspondence from you on at least if you will not add the obituary. In conversation with Ronald's mother during a visit with her last month in Ashland Kansas, I told her I would try to work with the contributor in adding it.

Again, thank you. I hope to hear from you in the near future.

Sincerely, Michael Schulte

P.S. I provided my Find A Grave member number in earlier correspondences

Malinda Hockett Frazier
Are you related to Malinda Frazier? If so you may be interested to know that her obit is online at the Plainville public Library site. They have posted all issues of that newspaper from 1888 to present at their site. Her obit is found in the 8/3/1916 issue on page 3. I hope someone will post it at the findagrave.

Thank you so much for what you have done posting information about my daddy's grave and is family. I put a requst for a picture of his stone, but I have seen you have pictures of the others so I am afraid that means there is no stone. Please know I appreciate all you have done, I have never been there, this brings me closer, thanks!

I am sorry I have not been able to take a picture. I hurt my back and couldn't get around and now I had a car wreck and don't have a car for a while. If no one else picks it up I will try again later.
