RE: Memorial Stone
Hello Shirley - I did not post anything to William Mullins. I am the sponsor. You will need to contact the person who created the listing. Janis

Ann Smith Ballentine Button
Hi Shirley, I noticed you placed flowers on the memorial for Mattie Button. I believe she is the daughter of Ann Ballentine Button, and the half sister of Mary Marie Ballentine, my 3rd GGrandmother. I am looking for someone who may have more information on Anne. My GGreatmother Marie married and moved to California, and I know she made at least one trip back to Iowa to see her people. Any help you can offer is greatley appreciated! Thanks for the hard work and contributions to this site. Judy

RE: Jons photo from Baggs, Wyoming

I have used irfanview before with scanned images. I've gotten a new computer since then, so need to download it again. Thanks. I went ahead & edited the photos for Andrew, Mary, & Sophia - the oldest Jons stones. Were there others?

Frank Doughery memorial
I reviewed the Shilo Cemetery book today. I was not able to find Frank listed as being being buried in this cemetery. Can you provide me with a plot number or location of this grave site?

James Wayne Clair

These are children of James Wayne Clair #30290466 and wife Elizabeth Rachel Rhea Clair.#30290464

William Richard Clair and Jasper Sylvester Clair are both buried in Columbia Cemetery, Marion County, Iowa. They share a stone.

Charles Edward Clair is buried in Sumner Cemetery, Alton, KS.

I sent requests on all of the above to be transferred to their parents last week, so hopefully that will happen soon.

There was one more child, James Alonzo Clair, Born Dec. 19, 1861, Washington Twsp. Marion, Iowa. The story as passed down is that he was upset about something and rode off on his horse one morning and never returned. His mother, Elizabeth Rachel Rhea Clair left a light in the window each night as as long as she lived so that if he returned, he knew he would be welcome. James was listed in the 1880 census, living with his parents in Twin Mound, Rooks, Co. KS. (age 18)

Some believe he went to California, but I have never been able to positively verify that.

RE: F. P. Whipple
Thank you for all your help. I think I might have found some info. my uncle said his name was frank. and I found a wedding certificate that states he was Abijah's son. of course my Abijah can't be found any where as far as his death. but I will look at the place you gave me. thank you so much for all you do.

Find A Grave Memorial# 32421025. do you happen to have any more info on this man. all my family history passed down to me talks about this man but refers to him as uncle. I don't know how he fits in. a full name maybe, parents names or an obit anything right now might help. thank you

RE: Nancy Ranney
I have no doubt she is a Ranney and if I implied otherwise it was not my intent. I wanted you to be able to locate the record in the index under "Ramsey" should you wish to see it yourself. thank you for linking to parents, and for your contributions to Find A Grave.

RE: Jaocb John Pickering
Shirley, I'm not directly related. I find it interesting and challenging to try to trace in reverse to find their origin. A good many in Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Iowa come from Greene Co. Tenn. Others migrated into Ohio from Virginia and through Pa. Somewhere along the way we must all fit. Mine extend through Pa, Va (WV),and into Tenn. Mine didn't heed Mr Greely and ''Go West''. Thank you for the update. Richard

Thank you so much for updating the memorials! I appreciate your time and all that you do.

RE: Soule # 67730468
Shirley -- I will request a photo to start, check the library and historical society to see what I find. If I don't have any luck, I will email you. I will be glad to take over the management, but want to make sure he is my great grand Uncle first. I have many doubts. Thanks for your response and suggestions. I will be in touch. Elizabeth

Memorial# 67730468
I realize you must receive a lot of requests for additional information. I am not sure this is my great grand Uncle or not, but the birth date fits as well as the location. If you have any other information, that would be great. Or if I should contact the Plainville Cemetery in Kansas directly, I will do that. Thank you for all the hard work you do in posting gravesites. Elizabeth Radley
