Thanks for the reminder :).... I usually don't even pick up family sourced records.... I look for state, county or church records..... the Mendendall eleven are directly from Quaker records..... the main reason I mentioned Ancestry, was to check out my tree so you could pick up the children of Isaac & Martha from it.

Shirley, I think I goofed. I read your note regarding posting of messages on the Edit function as opposed to a personal note. Please accept my apology....I should read the information on the poster before I use the edit function. Thanks for all that you have done. Lisa

I always enjoy running into another cousin :)
I have been working on several of them, do you happen to remember what memorial the edit was sent to?
I found many new Quaker records on Ancestry that have been very insightful..... I find it interesting reading the MM reports.
Blessings & Merry Christmas!

re: James and Nancy Benge
My husband is a great=grandson to Matilda Benge, a sister to Samantha Benge Chlumsky. I wondered if you know where their parents may be buried? I called the caretaker for Fowler Cemetery and she no listing for them. I also called the county historical society, and have not been able to find a burial location. Some other researcher on line has listed that the Benges are buried in fowler. I am hoping you may have family info that we do not have!

Wife of Abihu Wilson
Hi Shirley. In Feb 2012 you posted photos of a tombstone of Abihu Wilson and Eliza J. Wilson (they share the same stone) in Earlham Cem in Iowa on Abihu's memorial 75425397. You posted the same photos on a memorial that was supposedly for his wife "Abigail," even though you wrote a caption in which you questioned the name and correctly pointed out that "Abigail" didn't match the name on the tombstone. Both of those memorials had been created by F.A.G. contributor "Carolyn." I have now created a new memorial for the correct wife, Eliza J. Wilson #139600856, and it is properly linked, and Carolyn has deleted the erroneous "Abigail" memorial. I'm hoping you will now upload the same photos you have on Abihu's memorial to the new memorial for Eliza. Thanks. - Jay

No, it is
I must have worded my information misleadingly, but I know he died as a child, I knew he hadn't lived to be past a year, I think I might have mentioned his father was also a William Long (William Randolph Long). I have his birth record as Jun 15 1898 in Henry Co. IA, and of him and his two sisters, only one child of the three lived past a year of age. Mother is Elnora Hockett Long.

RE: Creason Family
I'm sorry to say I have no relation. My husband and I decided to take on this cemetery to photograph all the stones. I grew up in Orrick, and I knew of a few Creason's. One which was a teacher in Orrick elementary school. Other than that, I know nothing about the family. Sorry I can't help in any way. But I hope I might have helped you with anyone. We might have bitten off more than we can chew, but this cemetery is something that should be documented. If I can help in any way, please let me know. Even if you would like a better photo than I provided. Sorry I couldn't help.

RE: Jacob Mendenhall-Documentation of Parents Enos and Lydia
Hello-Both Jacob and his parents, Enos and Lydia are listed in the Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy-Volume 1, Page 860-Records from the Springfield, NC Monthly Meeting. Jacob, his first wife, Susannah Moore and their 3 oldest children, Emily, Rhoda and David are listed. Enos and his wife, Lydia are listed on this same page along with the names of their 7 children-Jacob included.

There is also an interesting bio on Jacob detailing the family's relocation and life in Iowa-his parents included-in the book, "Portrait and Biographical Album of Lee County, IA", by Chapman Brothers (1887)


Enos and Lydia Mendenhall are my GGGGGrandparents.
Jacob and his first wife, Susannah Moore, are my GGGGrandparents.

Thank you for your assistance-Cody

These tombstones are difficult to read
In memory of Capt. Samuel Alden d February 24 1781 then aged 92yr 2 mths and 3 days. The cemetery records show him dying in 1773 but this was when his wife Sarah died.
Hope this helps.

Elouisetta F. Carr's daughter Harriet
Was thinking the Harriet M. Hazard Remer memorial was a better fit as Elouisetta's daughter than the Harriet Carr memorial.

Harriet (Hazard) Remer appears in the 1855 NYS Census and 1860 Federal Census in the Charles and Elouisetta Carr household as Harriet Hazard. Then in Elouisetta's obituary as Mrs. J. S. Remer.

There is a Harriet Carr, b. abt 1844 in the 1880 census as well as a Hariet Norman b. abt 1847 in the 1880 cesus as the wife of Myndert Norman. So there may be multiple Harriets with ties to the Carr surname in Yates County.

RE: Justus Hatch photo
Thank you so much for thanking me for the photos. I have found some "less than perfect" gravestone photos taken...too far away, in the shadows etc. Certainly I have taken my share of "less than perfect" photos...but have learned over the years that descendants want to see a full gravestone with a clear close-up and the epitaph...there is much information to be gleaned from these gravestones.

I hope you don't mind but I have taken the liberty of looking at your photo requests. I often go to the State Library in Hartford which has the Hale Collection from the 1930's. I may not get to those cemeteries that you've requested..but will see if the gravestones were found in that particular cemetery in the 1930's.

Let me know if there are some other gravestones that you would like clearer photos of or if I can be of any help,

Hazel Runkel - # 67711484
Hazel was a great-aunt of mine (my grandmother's eldest sister). Her last name is spelled wrong. It should be spelled "Runkle."

Hazel's husband was Sherman Runkle - # 67711567. Yes, there was nearly a 15 year difference in their ages. The upper inscription on Hazel's gravestone reads, "Wife of Sherman."

Hello. According to the Flory book, authored by Walter Bunderman, David and Eliza Brown Flory had 13 children. Katie was the 12th child and I believe the listing of her mother as S. E. Harshbargar is incorrect. All the children had the mother Eliza Brown Flory. If there is other information available to the contrary, please let me know. Thank you. I am a Flory descendant.

Sarah Baldwin Fenn
Shirley I am not sure what you were trying to tell me or have me change in my memorial for Sarah Baldwin Fenn at Founders Cemetery. I have that info on the Memorial and have a copy of Susan Woodruff Abbotts book. I do not list sources on the memorials for my info. I can be contacted for that if that info is wanted.
