RE: More about Elizabeth Wallace
Oh it's the wrong person, then. I was thinking that rather than create another memorial, this was the person for whom I was looking. I based it on the fact that this was a close match and the grave is near where Elizabeth Wallace's last Census Record was recorded. In the 1870 Census, I found a person living in the household of Bradford W Willis who was indexed as "Wallan" but (faded image) it's "Wallace." And Elizabeth H Willis married Joseph Wallace (and was Bradford's mother-in-law). Elizabeth's daughter, Martha (a.k.a. Patsy Roberts in the 1860 Census and living with her parents in Georgia after evidently her marriage to James Roberts ended) started out as Martha Wallace, then Martha Roberts, then Martha Willis.

RE: Goldie Finkelstein-Rosen #41331851
I see - was not aware of that preference. Will accept your input and find a way to let family know. Thanks. Donna #48515329

Goldie Finkelstein-Rosen #41331851
Thank you for the input. It is correct that she died as "Rosen". We are using Finkelstein-Rosen for the present to assist family members in finding her memorial as that is how they knew her. There are no Rosen descendants from Goldie - he was a second later husband.

Thanks so much for the correct place of death. I like my information to be as true to fact as possible. Also, the obituary link. Our family have none left that could pass on these historical facts, so again much appreciated. Donna Member #48515329

Thomas Scott
Hello. I just found the memorial you created for Thomas Scott at Oakland Cemetery, who died during the Civil War. What a surprise!! May I please have your permission to include your pictures in my family records? Credit for the source would be included, and copies would be for personal use, not for publication or posting elsewhere on the internet. Thank you very much!

RE: Charles Farquer, Memorial# 52292100
My documentation was from a genealogy page I came acrosssed. I only made the suggestion because of your note. I was actually quite hesitant on making the suggestion then decided to just let you know of the other date and let you decide.

Jennie Taylor
You have requested a photo of the marker for Jennie Taylor to try to determine if it is a 'centopath'. I don't know what that is but if this helps, here is the group she is buried with at Highland Park:
Dr. Walter Starnes Nash December 15 1865 - November 13 1943
Eva (Winter) wife of Dr. Walter Starnes Nash April 13 1863 - August 5 1953
Lois (Winter) Morrow September 4 1857 - May 8 1936
Jennie (Winter) Taylor October 29 1867 - February 8 1951
Faye Smith Palmer December 22 1902 - November 15 1949
James Ross Palmer November 17 1900 - December 26 1986

RE: Cunningham and Mason
Thank you, that is VERY helpful. From the photo of the Cunningham lot, it is evident that there must some unmarked burials there. Thank you, thank you!

Cunningham and Mason
Hi, thank you so much for sending the information on the burials in Section 17, Block 372, Lot 4, where my Cunningham and Mason relatives are. You have given me a lot to work with, and I really appreciate it. I do feel that Emily (Alford) Cunningham 159425739 is buried here, as it is my understanding that the Grizzle book contains headstone transcriptions (please correct me if I am wrong). The dates of birth and death that I put on Emily's memorial page come from Grizzle. My question for you, I am not clear on whether you compiled the information you sent me from cemetery office records, or did you walk out to the lot (either way, I appreciate the effort very much)? You said there is no record, do you mean no office record or no stone? If you went out and found no stone, I'll assume the stone Grizzle transcribed is no longer there and I'll take down the photo request. Thanks again, Amy

Ancestry tree
As I said my ancestry tree is a little polluted right now as I use ancestry to find the people in my tree. I keep a paper tree and my sister keeps her own paper tree she independently researched. I am not sure the birthdates on simion are true but I did find a baptismal record for him listing them as his parents so someones birthday is wrong and since I didn't have access to the original documents only the transcripts I have to list what I have.I will pull out my paper tree and scan the copies I have to ancestry when I get time. I was working on another branch and havent added those to ancestry. This is why my tree is private until it is cleaned up and documents added.

Ruby Walters
Whew!I've had to take the 'scenic' route to find you. I can't seem to make any posts in the forum right now. Don't know if it's issues in their system, or mine. I don't want anyone to think that I would ignore them, especially when they take the time to help me with a problem. You suggested I make an unknown with the pic I'm needing help with, so you could enlarge it better to make out the carvings. I just put it with my grandmother's pictures on her memorial, if you're still interested in helping with it. Her's is memorial 159857673

RE: Martha Morrison
You are so very welcome. I just discovered this website and knew I could help. I have started searching about the money and about getting the cemetery repaired. I am the care taker of the new Jefferson cemetery and it upsets me that the old cemetery is in such disrepair and no one seems to care.
Have a great day and if I can be of any help in the future please let me know.

RE: Minich
I will try to scan and put some of the baptism records I found into ancestry I got quite a bit when I went to the Allen county Library a number of years ago. Someone had copied and translated the church records from the German into English.

I added you as a guest on my ancestry tree. It doesn't always go through so if it doesnt let me know and I will send another invite. I really need to work on that branch I was taking a break and I have alot of documents I haven't got scanned and loaded yet.Anything with a ??? means I an unsure and need to find documentation.

RE: Catherine Minich
His brother son of Catherine and Peter. Jacob "silas" Minich had 23 children LIVING at the time of his death according to the obit. I am descent of his Daughter Eliza Jane Minich Thomas. I have my tree on ancestry if you have a subscription I can add you to view it.

Catherine Minich
I dont have the obit just saw a reference to it. FYI watch out between Jacob and Henry most of Jacob's children have gotten listed as Henry's and I have had a bugger of a time correcting it as I have christening records. Jacob had 23 children living at the time of his death Henry had single digits.Henry stayed in PA while Jacob moved to Micihand and lost three wives each time the children went to live with various relatives. One genealogist who started this before me didnt look at christening records and used census as proof of parentage. Do your diligence research or it is easy to get it wrong as the wrong information is more accepted.

There was a mix up. I made the change. Thank you for pointing it out. I didn't put the obit on the memorial so didn't catch it.

Carrie Buchanan #126463870
Hi, I just sent a Bio to be added to Carrie White Buchanan, I mistakenly, put she was buried in her uncle lot, that is my mistake, as already indicated in her currently BIO "buried in her brothers lot, is correct as it stands, everything else in my Bio I just sent is correct. Memorial# 126463870. Sorry the the mistake, and thank you.

Verna Ion #37995000
The name "Verona" shows on the son Clinton Ion's death cert. The informant was his sister Grace Ion.
The 1880 census shows "Vernie A. Loux" with her parents Andrew and Gemima (Jemima) Loux in Clarion, Pa.
So perhaps you can leave it as "Verna".

RE: William E Harper / Oakland Cemetery
the widow's application said he died of dysentery. i know she could not read or write so that could very well be the source of the discrepancy. But again i want to thank you for all the time, effort and resources that you have put into this project. it is comforting to me to know where his mortal remains are and that he has a memorial. i knew he died in a hospital in Atlanta, but feared he was in a mass grave or unmarked grave, forgotten somewhere. because of your dedication i know where to find him and will certainly visit if i ever get to Atlanta again. thank you again for everything!
