RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 62444367
Thanks for adding Hattie's Wilson maiden name, and thanks for originally including Rhea's obit that enabled me to find it. After rereading the FAQ, I'd be inclined to put Baumley and Hall in Hattie's last name field since both married names are on the headstone, and I'm ambivalent about adding a hyphen that's not actually part of her name, but I'm satisfied that all surnames are included one way or another.

Just two small items:

The 1920 census gives Rhea's birthplace as Nebraska, not Illinois, and her name is misspelled as Dhea on Edward's memorial.

Since you created a memorial for Cyrus M Hall, I have memorial #s for his father (18910845), mother (18910927), and first wife Julia (70409163).
His parents are listed with him in these censuses:
1860 • Union, Davis, Iowa, USA
1870 • Marshall, Taylor, Iowa, USA
Cyrus and Julia were married in 1877 and are listed together in these censuses before her death in 1918:
1880 • Marshall, Taylor, Iowa, USA
1900 • Plainview, Pierce, Nebraska, USA
1910 • Lincoln Ward 5, Lancaster, Nebraska, USA

Thanks again.

Hi Red Dog,

You left a message concerning him that noted you knew his nephew .... I've updated his bio and thought that you and possibly his nephew would like to read it:

Citing this Record:
"New York, County Marriages, 1847-1848; 1908-1936," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QKNB-5DV5 : 24 January 2016), Walter Latrobe Cavell and Bessie Lillian Hunt, 01 Jun 1931; citing county clerk’s office, Onondaga, New York, United States; FHL microfilm 1,014,363.

I was looking for the last name Hurst and this showed up in one record because whoever transcribed it had difficulty reading Hunt.

I have already shared the story of coins on a soldier's grave.

RE: Julia E. Morrell Davis # 50029249
I think that I have been misunderstood. I was providing additional, documented information about this entry for Julia E. Morrell.

The family information for J. Burge Morrell (Find A Grave Memorial# 101615411) includes his obituary. That obituary includes factual errors. His great grandfather was Joseph C. Morrell, who was an immigrant and did not fight in the War of 1812.

The other Joseph Morrell from the War of 1812 has nothing to do with this family, it was a genealogical error way back when. The other Joseph Merrill from the Civil War error also does not relate to this family.

Just trying to provide a correct history.

Julia E. Morrell Davis # 50029249
Hi,
I'm doing some research on this family and I am trying to track back to Helen Hewitt Morrell Lynch and her first husband Joseph C. Morrell.

Oddly, the family seems to have a disconnect at Joseph C. Morrell who was an Anglo-Swedish immigrant. He arrived in western New York sometime in the 1830s. So the bit about the war of 1812 soldier buried in Williamsville is a fun fabrication, although Joseph C. Morrell's father may have been part of the British military or diplomatic corp stationed in Sweden during the Napoleonic wars.

Do you have additional information about this family or a contact for this family's genealogy?

RE: Sarah Anne Cavanaugh Burgess 33373419
I hadn't noticed the date before and cannot explain it except to conjecture that it was copied in 1962. I got this picture from a woman who was doing genealogy on our family in Douglas County WA. Sarah is my husband's great-grandmother.

RE: Alice Morrell
Alice is listed in OUR NICHOLS family tree as being the wife of Clifford Nichols and mother of their daughter Florence Nichols who was married twice, 1st to a "LUM" and then her second husband was Charles Treichler of Sanborn. WE know Clifford died in 1933 she died in 1894 both names are on their headstone at the Lewiston Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Lewiston. I haven't located her obituary, so I have NO idea is she could be related somehow to the Hewitt's which could be since there are several families in and around the Lewistonarea. I'd love to know more about her also due to a big 200th Celebration of the Nichols coming in June 2016, OUR Ancestor was a pioneer settler of the Niagara Frontier having arrived here in June 1816.

So much for rule of thumb on Find A Grave. First is supposed to be first. And so much for not using photos that are not yours, I have had several of mine copied and used without permission. Keep up the good work Red Dog.

First of all, thank you for your service. Freedom is absolutely not free. It costs our service members dearly at times. I know this firsthand. My previous husband is amongst those remembered on findagrave, as is his step father.

Thank you so much for the photos of the grave of Claude Berry, 3689353. They are beautiful. I am so grateful for your service to our nation and to findagrave.com.

Yours,

Heidi

Thanks so much for sending these photos. I'm not sure still this is my husbands Uncle but when I complete my research, I'll get back and give you a yes or no. I would not ever want to keep this and he belong to another. I'm 95% sure this is him.

Again thanks so much,

Sugg, Maren
I've posted a photo of Maren's marker. I also got a picture of her husband, Fidel - since he was right next door it seemed silly to leave him out - but I don't see a memorial for him. If you would like to set one up I will gladly post the photo for you.
I get off the freeway every morning on my way to work just so I can drive by the Los Angeles National Cemetery and say "thank you" to all the troops at parade rest.
Thank you for YOUR personal service to our country and YOUR personal contribution to our freedom.
