Charles Fox Read Jr.
I am researching my family and found Charles in there. According to the dates you posted on his memorial (#137144527), he would have been only 14 when he died in 1871. However, I have him listed on the 1880 census as a clerk in his father's hotel in Brownsville. Apparently he married sometime after that to Cora May McCoy and fathered at least 2 children. Can you check to see if possibly his death date may have been in 1891?

I'd appreciate your help in clearing this up. Missing a complete census count (1890) is really making things difficult.

Mr. Poma,

It is ironic that I just send a letter asking for the probate records of Ann Heddleson. It seems that Raymond predeceased his wife. She deceased in 1992. It doesn't appear that they had any children, but some of the family members were found online would include Gladys E. Castle, Cheryl D. Chichester, Richard L. Zeller, & Dennis D. Zeller, all living in the Hood River, Oregon area. I have been contacted by Raymond's nephew Robert W. Heinlein's wife to whom provided this information. I appreciate your help and if there is anything I can do for you, let me know.

Thank You,

Curtis Wells

Thanks for Oscar
Would love to have Andrew, Gus, Rufus, Addison (Grandfather) and Eva. Pic I posted of Oscar came from Eva's son, Howard Clayton. Many thanks for all you have done for all.

Saw where Cousin Bret has requested an Aunt from you. We have both had parents to recently die, it has caused us to have an interest in Find A Grave.

I only know back to JM's father, he is buried in near B'ham on private property. Any information you have on family would be greatly appreciated.

Again Thank You,

John Bradford

Hi Bill. That all sounds correct for Aunt Rose. Birthday matches to what I have. Her father was Mihaly Magyar but he was "Englished" to Mike. His grave is in find a grave, along with wife Ann Kochis. Grandma Kochis, as my Aunts knew her and called her passed just before I was born but I have heard many stories of her and family. Thank you for the info on the Bans too. I had pieced most of that but you sure helped with the gap. Maybe you can help me some more. One of Anna and Mike's daughter', Margaret, she was about 15 on that 1930's census I cannot find much info on her afterwards... I am not sure if she married or when she passed? my Grandfather knows she was one of his Aunts but unfortunately doesn't remember anymore of what became of her (he is 85 now). I know the other children : Mike (jr.) Passed in 1981 (wife Ethel died young in 1938) Helen Magyar married John Gorbe. She passed in 1973. Not sure when John passed. They had a daughter Mildred Ann who passed in 2006. Joe Magyar passed in 1992 not sure where their graves all are? I have Annie Magyar married Anthony Bely, I have their graves, Annie died in 2007. Her Daughter Marilyn had A daughter, Audrey, whom I am in contact with. Then my Great Grandfather James passed in 1972, wife Frances in 1991. I have to confirm where their graves are, my Grandfather or Aunts will know. Thank you very much for any help and please let me know if I can help you with anything too.

I was wondering if you ever located the burial for

William Riley Sullivan
Birth 22 Jan 1893 Smithville, MS
death: Apr 1970 Warren, Macomb, Michigan
H/o Eunice F Sullivan
birth: 1 Oct 1895 MS
death: 25 Dec 1980 Clinton, Macomb, MI
parents of:
William Norris Sullivan
Find A Grave Memorial# 144011887

Also I wanted to ask you about
Pearl Emma Wilemon Qualls
Find A Grave Memorial# 143980124

There is no MI death record for her nor SSD index.

You located her burial but now I'm curious if she either passed away in another state or was married a third time.

Can you help me with the information you required, her burial and the name she is listed as on her burial record you located at the Grand Lawn Cemetery in Detroit, MI.

Thank you once again for all your help with several people.

My regards.
