I am not related to the Montague family. I was just taking some pictures while I was looking for my daughter-in-law's family. Sorry.

RE: Alwina Grasse
Mr. and Mrs. Grasse are buried in the Lutheran Cemetery. Several other Grasse relatives are in Wildwood Cemetery. I got my info many years ago from a member of the Grasse family.

RE: Montague/McCormack - St. Josephs's
I visited St. Joseph's cemetery in 2005 and took photos and documented some inscriptions. I think there was also a book in the Daughter of the American Revolution library in DC. Are you a Montague?

RE: Clara Kellogg
Thanks for your message; good point about the name search. Here's a tip: When searching, click the box marked "Do partial name search on surname". It took me awhile to find this option and I've found it helpful in situations such as this. -- Linda

Col. Patrick J. Egan
That is great that you found his gravemarker in St. Joseph's Cemetery. I have changed his name, as you requested. Would you like me to transfer him to you?

Anna Brooke # 83217860
Though the tombstone states she was born in 1856, that date has to be incorrect, due to the fact that her parents John Mercer Brooke and Catherine Corbin Pendleton were not married until 14 March 1871. It was during the Civil War that she married Alexander Swift "Sandie" Pendleton of Gen. Stonewall Jacksons' aide. He was killed and it wasn't until 1871 that she married Brooke.

Charles & Emma transfers
Thank you. Now I can connect all of the children to the parents.

Charles Jr
"Charles, Jr. has no local record, but his monument does list his birth and death dates. He is also listed as "husband" but no wife is buried there, so far as I can tell." -- probably because he was married at least 3 times--I am still researching his spouses:

1--Bertha Mae Wyland
Charley Webster Jr, 24, b. about 1883 in MI, Parents: Charles Stewart & Emma Stewart -- Bertha Mae Wyland, 18, b. about 1913 in MI, Parents: Melvin Wyland & Sarah Elizabeth Kitchen

2--Lillie Stevens
Charles Webster, 46, b. MI, factory employee, Parents: Charles Webster & Erma (sic) L Stewart, previously married 1 time – Lillie Weeks? (indexed as Tooks), 56, b. MI, housewife, Parents: Nathan Stevens & Emma Burt, previously married 1 time

3-- Charlotte Wright
Charles Webster, 57, b. MI, Parents: Charles Webster & Emma Stewart -- Charlotte Mace, 52, b. TX, Parents: George Wright & Alice Roover

RE: Webster - Lakeview MI
WOW--words cannot express my thanks to you for going above and beyond the call to find the information that I was looking for regarding the Websters. Yes, the visitors to the Charles: "Mr & Mrs Edward (actually Edwy "Ike") Webster of Belding" and "Mr & Mrs Ira Webster of Belding" and "Mr & Mrs Jay Pixley of Belding" are all children of Charles & Emma.

Webster side headstone markers
Hello Eddie,
I am researching my “Stewart” line and am currently working on Charles A Webster 1846-1920 & Emma L Stewart 1853-1913. You posted some Webster photos apparently from one of your road trips since they are in Lakeview Cemetery in Lakeview, MI. (William G Find A Grave Memorial# 35783219) The main headstone you posted has WEBSTER on the front and William G Webster 1873-1896 on the back. There are 4 side stones. Do you have the identity of those 4 stones: Emma, Charles--husband (not of Emma) and 2 others? I believe that Charles, Emma & William are 3 of the 7 children of the Webster/Stewart union. Two of the children died before 1910 Census: William & Emma. I am still seeking the burial location for the parents who died in Belding, MI and one sibling, Ella.
Thank you for your assistance.

Eddie, would you be so kind as to transfer Thomas R. Everman #108819497 and his wife, Elizabeth Everman #108820151 over to member #39471431? Thomas is a son of my Riley Everman. Thank you. Linda

Isaiah Hilliard
I believe you have linked the wrong Isaiah Hilliard (Find A Grave #77852382)to Philip Hilliard (Find A Grave #15205991) and Esther Sanderson Hilliard (Find A Grave #15206012). Their son was my husband's great great grandfather and he died in Missouri in 1929. There were 2 Isaiah Hilliards at the same time in Michigan, but ours moved on.

If you have evidence to the contrary, please let me know. Our family hired a geneologist and my information is based off what he found.

Trinity Lutheran Cemetery
There are more than one cemetery listed in Wisconsin named Trinity Lutheran. None of them indicate Huilsburg.... Which one of those is actually
Trinity Lutheran Cemetery, Huilsburg.

I'm asking you because I noticed you had taken photos in the area.

Col. J. Patrick Egan
He is listed in a book I have as Col. J. Patrick Egan, died 17 Apr 1888 at the age of 56 years, served in the Civil War, and buried in St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery.

His death certificate says he was 49 years old when he died and has his name as Patrick Eagan.

RE: Littleton Parker Ewell
Hi Eddie,

Thanks for getting back to me in regards to Littleton Parker Ewell, buried in St. Mary's cemetery in Pocomoke, Md. Sorry the police harassed you while in the cemetery. If you'd had a shovel, I could understand them being suspicious, but not a camera and clipboard. Geesh. I'm glad you found my ancestor's grave before they asked you to leave. What an amazing thing it is for you to have found his grave and me to have checked on "find-a-grave" again. I had checked a few years back with no luck finding him. Littleton Parker Ewell was a Confederate soldier in the 39th Va. Inf., but when they disbanded, he went missing and no other information on him has been found til you found his grave. Yes, if no other descendants of his come forward, I would be interested in taking charge of his memorial page. Thanks very much, Eddie. My "find-a-grave" membership number is: #48630833e

Thanks again!

Steven Riley

RE: Jacob Leightner

Sorry, but I just realized I called you Edie in my prior message!

RE: Jacob Leightner

I found him through a Pennsylvania veteran's burial card on Ancestry.

And, yes I have Keefer (Kiefer) as the last name for the older children. However, I have Margaret as her first name - according to his son William's death certificate!

And I haven't been able to find where Margaret (Rebecca) is buried. I'm thinking maybe Mt. Zion, since both George Michael & his 2nd (or 3rd) wife, Hester, are buried there. And their daughter Amanda is also buried there.

I've also seen where he might have been married between Margaret (Rebecca) & Hester. To an Elizabeth Yost - with a son John. But I don't know if that's accurate or not.

Don't know if that helps or not, but that's what I have so far. Along with several variations of the spelling - Lightner, Leitner, Leightner!

If you have more information, I'd love to hear from you.
