Many thanks!
Brad, thank you so very much for photographing the headstones of my gr gr grandparents, Mary A. Fisher (#111212919) and Daniel K Fisher (#111207151). It helps to actually see the stones so there is no doubt where they are buried. I am brand new to this website and need to explore making a donation, etc. I also have a lot of info to add to the write-ups about them which I presume I do via "edit" Mary A Fisher was the first wife of Daniel. He is buried with his 2nd wife Barbara Zurcher Fisher. Do you recall if the graves are at all close to each other? Since so many years lapsed, they probably are not. Again, my sincere gratitude for your kind act of taking and submitting the photos. Regards, Donna

RE: Clay Co
Hi, Brad,
I'm doing well. Another day older, and as my mother might have said, another day more decrepid! One day you may be taking a photo of my gravestone at Bluff View, though not any time soon, I hope. LOL.

Thank you for your help, always!

I hope you are well and enjoying the summer. Linda

Thanks for taking pictures and posting them at Roseni. I went by the copy of burials they gave me and also found allot of mistakes. I do hope the stones are right or do I believe the paper on the dates and spelling of names? I think I should go by the stone.

Thank you again so much.

RE: Robert N. Smith
As far as I know the only Smiths we are related to in Concord are Robert, Jane, and Edward. None of those other names are in our family tree.

RE: Robert N. Smith
Hi, Brad, that was amazingly kind and helpful of you! I cannot thank you enough!! Thank you so much for the photos.

I am descended from Robert Smith's younger brother, Walter Aaron Smith. Their parents were Edward F. Smith and Mary Elizabeth Foreman Smith, both born in Lincolnshire, England. They had nine children, all born in Lincolnshire, and the whole family immigrated to the U.S. together in the 1850's and settled in Harrison County, Iowa, where most of them remained for the rest of their lives.

Robert seemed to wander quite a bit more than the rest of them. You can read what I know about Robert Smith's adult life in the bio I put on his memorial, which is his obituary.

We know some things about many of the siblings' lives, but basically nothing about Robert's brother Edward, who is also buried in Concord. I don't know why Robert or Edward moved to Nebraska or who moved first.

I have not met Ron Rader in person, but I've communicated with him quite a bit on line. He does a tremendous amount of volunteer work for Find a Grave, and it happens that he created many of my family memorials in Harrison County and also has taken photos of many, many of my family graves. Since I discovered Find a Grave recently, he has been incredibly helpful in answering any questions I have and finding information in Harrison county. He truly knows those cemeteries like the back of his hand and takes great care of the graves.

I am so grateful to you for driving to Concord TWICE to take the photos, Brad! Let me know if you need any other information.

Hi Brad -
Many thanks for fulfilling my photo Request for Ura. I really appreciate you doing that for me.

Also, I will send you an email regarding your book. A very intriguing title.

Best regards,

Hi, Brad,
The Confederate veteran marker right next to Jane's grave is definitely Robert's!
Even though he lived in Iowa, he was apparently taking a barge of merchandise down the Mississippi river to New Orleans and was recruited into the Confederate Army. He surrendered to the Union Army in 1865. He met his wife Jane in Virginia while he was in the army.
The fact that the marker is next to Jane's is good, meaning they are buried together and the Smith monument refers to him, too.
If you could add the Confederate marker to Robert's memorial, I would truly appreciate it so much!
Do you have any other Smiths (like Edward) in your alphabetical database, or did you already check that?
I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help and your volunteer work! Thanks for getting back to me so quickly and letting me know about the Confederate stone!

Jane's stone says "Wife of R. N. Smith" on it, and he is buried in Concord, so I think he must be right next to her?

Robert N. Smith
Hi, Brad, thank you SO very much for attempting to get a photo of the graves of Robert N., and his brother Edward, Smith.
Could you tell me if Robert N. is buried right next to his wife, Jane E. Smith? You took the photo of her monument and added it to her memorial.
From looking at her memorial, I think that when he purchased it when she died, he meant it to be the monument for both of them, because the name SMITH is so prominent at the top.
Apparently no one thought to carve his name and dates into it or to add small markers for both of them when he died.
What I would like, if he is buried right next to her, and if you would agree, would be if you would add the photo of her monument to his memorial. I will add an explanation right at the top of the bio explaining that he must have purchased the monument for both of them but that no one bothered to mark it for him when he was buried.
Let me know what you think.
The other question i have is whether you got a photograph of the place, the grave, where his brother Edward is buried. Simply a photograph of the grave would be nice even if there is no marker. (I understand you may not have thought of that! If you didn't, and if you are ever at Concord photographing again, I would love to have at least photographs of the burial place.)
Again, thank you SO very much for all of your volunteer work, and for attempting to photograph his grave. It is VERY much appreciated.
