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.

You will receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

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!

Lynn-could you answer this
Hi Lynn: As you know because I have told you before, I love to read your memorial pages. They bring the person's memory to life and help all who read them to know the person beyond the marker. I would like to improve on my memorials since I am now totally retired. What sources do you use to get your information (other than me now and then-ha!). Thank you Lynn for all you do for find a grave.

You have that her husband Wash died in 1939. He didn't die until 2004. So they must have divorced and she just listed herself as widowed. Seemed to be the thing to do back then to say widowed instead of divorced.
