Nellie Dalhaus McDonough's daughter
Hello Lynn- I found that Nellie's youngest daughter Peggy Harrington passed away in 2013 and I added her to Nellie's memorial page. You can update Nellie's obit to have Peggy's name put in instead of Living Harrington.

Osborn family
Thank You Lynn for the information on Leroy Osborn, Mary and Homer. Are you related?
You had so many details, I just wondered.
Leroy Osborn was my grandfather. My mother was Norma Jean Osborn, his child with Lois Starkweather. Norma was born in 1926 when Leroy was young. I have met Linda Osborn Morrison, and her brother (can't remember his name at the moment). Thanks again for the detailed information. Mary Heuerman Lusk

Lucinda Hutchinson Church
Hi Lynn,

We corresponded back in Jan. 2012 about Lucinda and her family. We couldn't understand why she was buried in Illinois while her husband and daughter were in Kansas. I have done a lot of research recently and have connected several memorials to hers. I also found 4 children we didn't know about originally but don't know for sure where they are buried, even though I imagine they are in the same cemetery as Lucinda, but no memorials for them. The 1880 census showed her daughter Rosa, living with her grandfather and step-grandmother in Kansas, with birth in Kansas. She was actually born in Calhoun Co., IL, where her other siblings were born. Rosa and her father George didn't move to Kansas until after Lucinda died. Anyway, with the memorials that have been tied to hers, some of the notes could now be removed. Additional info to add as follows.

Step mother of:
Samuel V. Church (b. 1861)
George C. Church (b. 1863)

Rosa and George W. Church, Jr. memorials are now tied to Lucinda's. The other children are as follows:
Joseph V. Church
b. 18 Dec 1864 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 02 Jan 1870 Calhoun Co., IL

Francis Church
b. 22 Feb 1867 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 22 Feb 1867 Calhoun Co., IL

Margaret Ann Church
b. 09 Jan 1868 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 24 Dec 1869 Calhoun Co., IL

Lillie Bell Church
b. 09 Oct 1872 Calhoun Co., IL
d. 31 Dec 1876 Calhoun Co., IL

If you could add the above to her memorial and delete some of the notes I would very much appreciate it, and thanks so much for all you have done on her memorial in the past.

RE: Ransom family
My Grandmother's maiden name was Ransom...her father was a Ransom, her mother a Becker. They seem to have lived in Kansas City around the 1890s, many of them till about the early 1930s. The group I ultimately came from headed west, first to Arizona, then California. It is the Kansas City, Mo., time that I am trying to reconstruct.

Hello Lynn,

I have been working on my family's genealogy and was in contact with someone who had ties to Bayern, Germany records. She seemed to think that the Nicholaus Kamp named as George Sr.'s father could be an error and said I should contact you about how you found this information. Unfortunately, this is where I hit a dead end. I am hoping you can help so that I can continue with records in Germany.

Thank you very much for any help you may be able to offer.

Warm regards,

RE: Roy Dudley
We *think* she is still alive. I have seen no record of her death in doing a search. Sorry I can't be more definite. Pam

RE: Roy Dudley
Looks like she deleted her memorial and took the photo with her. Wow.

I just put in a request for another photo. Hopefully it will be quick because the military cemeteries are pretty well followed.
Fingers crossed. Thanks, Pam

Hello Lynn,

I need to know if you are related to the Jacobs you have memorials for. My Great grandmother was Laura Jacobs from this family and this family has been hard to find. I would like to hear from you please.

Your Find A Grave Memorial# 64251861 has no burial location. He is my cousin, and he is buried at:

Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery
St. Louis County
Missouri, USA

Find A Grave Memorial# 154241793 duplicated you and has his monument picture. Could you possibly merge them, or maybe she would move her photo over to yours and delete her memorial. Thought you would want to know. Thanks, Pam

Lewis/Louis T. Ingersoll
I show the following marriage of Charles Wesley Ingersoll to Louisa Sisko (sic-Sisco), Aug 16, 1855, Calhoun Co., Il. , V. 15, lic. 710.
The 1860 Census Richwood Pct., P.O. Monterey, Calhoun Co., Ill. household 370; Chl. Ingersoll, age 25, farmer, b. Illinois; wife Louisa, age 19, b. Ohio; son Lewis, age 8, b. Illinois and Peter Ayers, 60, b. Ireland. The 1870 Census Richwood Pct., Calhoun Co., Illinois : Cheslea Twichell, 66, b. N.Y., wife Candace C., 48, b. N.Y.; Carleton C. Twichell, 17, b. Ill; Oscar Twichell, 14, b. Ill. ; Louis Ingersoll, 13, b. Ill.; & Joseph Ingersoll, 10, b. Ill.
Charles Wesley Ingersoll and Louisa Sisco, separted in Mar. 1863, and divorced in May 1863, the children were awarded to the father, who was a son of John Wesley Ingersoll and Elvira Candace (Squier). She married (2) Chesley Wheeler Twichell, and raised the two boys, Lewis and Joseph C. Ingersoll. After Charles W. Ingersoll and Louis divorced, she left Ill. and took Joseph with her and the family in Ill. came after her and took Jospeh back. Louisa was a dau. of Horace Sisco & Mary Ann Cross, who married in 1839 in Franklin Co., OH. Louisa married (2) James M. Gibby in Calhoun Co., Il. It appears to me that someone changed Louisa's surname, on Lewis' death cert. because they did not want to acknowledge her.

RE: William O'Neil
I always look at the informant on the death certificate to see if the info is going to be credible. In this case, it was someone at the hospital who didn't know him like a family member would. If a father is giving info on a child, he usually can name the birthday but not get the year right. A second wife usually won't know the maiden name of her husband's mother, and some families just don't pass a lot of info down the pike to their kids. So I've learned that the only thing you can usually trust on a death certificate is the date of death and you need other sources to find out the truth or to back up all the other lines on the form. I always make sure I add my research findings to my bio because you know there are people who have gotten wrong info passed down in their families and refuse to believe something even when it is in black and white. I tried to get one contributor to link a wife to a man who turned out to be her great grandfather and she refused because no one had ever known he was married before, even though the document proved he had. So Lynn, thanks for writing and considering what I found on William O'Neil to be credible. :)

RE: Adding graves of still living people
Thank you for your help! I have fixed up the bio to not include the names of the living. In the bio for Jennifer, which I have just transferred to you, I have listed the names of three grandparents. I manage the pages for Keith and Dolores Valentine. Someone named Mr. Tom manages the page for Carl Raymond Vogler.

Adding graves of still living people
Hi Lynn,

Thanks for your recent help! Tomorrow I plan on visiting Jefferson Barracks where my sister is buried to take a picture of her grave. I now manage her page here on Find A Grave. My parents will be buried with her when they pass. Is it kosher to create a page for a still living relative? I probably wouldn't upload their grave marker yet, since a death date obviously hasn't been chiseled but it would allow me to link to Jennifer and my grandparents, and already have control of their pages. What do you think?

RE: Millie Berger
Thank you so much, Lynn. Since this is my first memorial page, I'm learning the ropes. I've just added my maternal grandparents and requested a transfer for my younger sister who passed as a baby. This coming week, I've got time off of work, so I'm going to go visit some cemeteries and take picture of their graves.

All the best!
