Your Find A Grave photos
Hello Shirley,
We found your Roma Crew memorial #32470193 is now maintained by Michael Crew, but we would like to use your photo on our family tree.

We would like to ask if your photo(s)of them on Find A Grave would be allowed to use on our public family tree.

We have posted a note on it(them) stating who the photo belongs to (example below), but we want to now ask for your permission since we have learned about copy-write issues.

If you would prefer us not to use it on our public tree, we will remove them immediately. May we have permission to use it (them) in a book we want to make for our children?

Hello, I found your name on Find A Grave and want to thank you for all you do for Find a Grave.

My great, great, great, great grandfather is Paul Beard Sr. Are you a relative of Lydia Cox Beard which is my great, great, great grandmother? She married William Beard.
If you live near Randolph Cty, Indiana it would be great if we could meet someday.

Hi ShirleyW55~no, I am not related to Amos or Elizabeth Hockett. I did leave flowers on their memorials, however. You have done a wonderful job on Find a Grave and certainly added to it more than most. Good show! Have a great 2011, what's left of it.

Hi Shirley,

Thanks so much for your help -- all very good suggestions! I am sure I can now find what I am looking for.

Again, thanks for all of your contributions on Find A Grave! It's a wonderful site to contribute to.

Have a great week,

Coleman Lisher of Fowler, Kansas
Hi Shirley,

Trying to find out anything about Coleman Lisher who died in Fowler, Kansas. You have listed him in the Fowler Cemetery, however there are no dates on his stone (just my luck!). I have found Coleman in the 1930 Census, aged 80, so suspect he may died shortly after that. If you have any suggestions on how I might obtain an obituary or death certificate I would greatly appreciate it. He is related to my Lisher family in Indiana.

Thanks for your great work on Find A Grave!

RE: Re: Catharine Cox
Thanks! Her mother's name is really Anna Margaretta Holmes, while the stone does say "Anner" I am trying to get that fixed. Distant cousins to me.

Mary Mendenhall Barnett
Shirley here is the obit I have for Mary, it is from the newspaper in Earlham called Echo, dated May 27, 1909.
Mary Mendenhall, daughter of Ira and Sarah Ballard Mendenhall, was born in Morgan County, IN, November 4, 1926; was married to Amos Barnettin Mooresville, IN, Aug 30, 1849. She departed this life at Earlham, Iowa, at the home of her daughter, Laura Jackson, May 20, 1909, at the age of 82 yrs, 6 mos, and 16 days. To this union was born a family of eleven children, 2 of whom, whith her husband, preceded her to the better land.
Amos Barnett journeyed from Iowa to Indiana in a covered wagon to claim his worthy helpmate.
In the spring of 1859 they started on a long tedious journey across the plains to Washington, with their family. Traveling in a prairie schooner drawn by an ox team, it took almost 5 months to make the trip and this, in a new country, they experienced many hardships.
After seven years they returned to Iowa where she lived ever since.
Three daughters and one son were with her at the time of her death, the other two daughters and 4 sons being unable to be present.
She was a life long member of the Friends Church and remained faithful to the end.
During her long sickness, a period of 20 months, Aunt Mary bore with patience as only a true Christian can, showing the example set by one who was ready and had longed to pass to her Great Reward.
Funeral services were held Friday afternoon at the house of her daughter, Mrs. Laura Jackson, conducted by Rev. John Stribling. Internment was in Earlham Cemetery.

I know that is pretty long, hopefully you can cut and paste. Thanks for adding and hope to get pictures up soon. Kami

RE: Mary Mendenhall Barnett
Mary's son Ellis Barnett was my husband's gr gr grandpa. I assume you know that Amos Barnett was not the father of Ellis. Mary had him before marrying Amos and as far as we know she was not a widow.I haven't gone much past either of their parents. My family comes from Illinois and we happened to stop in Earlham on the way one time and found Amos and Mary. I would be happy to type the obit to you if she is part of your family as well. I can also give you info on Ellis's family if you are interested. Thanks and talk to you soon. Oh, who are you branched from? Kami

Would appreciate your help in getting these into Find A Grave for the benefit of others

Hi Shirley,

I have uploaded a lot of pics to your memorials, so you can now update your information for these people. Looks like you entered quite a few names but left out birth and passing dates. Hopefully the pics will help clarify this bit of info.

Clifford E. Udall-Lodema Jane Udall
Shirley did you happen to see any tombstone of the above couple? He married a second time to Clare E. Payne in Portage Co., Ohio in 1907.
He and Lodema Jane Udall might have divorced so have a call into Cuyahoga Co., OH. to see if they have Divorce record for them. She was my grandfather's first wife.
Thank you for your help.
