You set up a site for Carol # 43390839 but said a marker couldn't be found, could she have been buried in Missouri where you have her born and died at birth? Just curious. She is a distant relative of mine

One more time, then riding my bike!
You will note that Spencer may have had a "phantom" marriage (Jane Shepard?) and that Elizabeth also seems to have had one with John Sprenckel.
There is remarkably little evidence that either of these people existed.
The Sprenckel/Sprinkles were Germans out of Pennsylvania, with a prominent John Jacob in the background, and Elizabeth has the "famous" name Jacob in marriage return, but her dau's obit says "John."

Addendum re my posting
There are some duplicate folks: a floating Elizabeth Campbell and Mabel Seik in that GEDCOM. I was so bleary-eyed last night (this morning) from working on these that I did not do a good clean-up on the file. Please keep that link for future reference, I have a research network with two SPOKT sites and a YDNA project. If you are interested in either, let me know, they are very SLATEN-centric, with some (not many) images of these families. However, the results of the research (by my lights) will always show on the RootsWeb posting. I refuse to use Ancestry Trees for anything, the public ones are totally corrupted. Let's just hope that they do not bulldozer over RootsWeb (they own that too) the way someone did over the Salem Cemetery.

RE: Elizabeth Cockshott
It is complicated. One of Spencer's sons d 1933 and the informant gave Jane Shepard as mother, which I very much doubt. Spencer mar at least 2, but they seem to be Mary and Elizabeth. Another of the women in the probate, Fannie produced Roscoe, and he mar Mabel Seik, whose mother was Irene SLATEN.
I have been wanting to get these mems for years, because online linking really helps, even though I am leary of most such links.
Rather than both of us reinventing the wheel, please check here:

RE: John Slayton
Hello and thank you for your contributions to my families info. On my grandmother's page Virginia Denson her last husband is listed as Benson, when it should be Denson. Besides that it looks great. Thanks again.

Ray weaver died on new years day 1971. He is buried right beside grandpa clark. I don't know anything about a half sister. He may in fact have had one.

Adam and Agnes Forbes as parents of Richard Tate "Dick" Forbes
Just was curious as to how you arrived at Granpa Dick's parents. I see the Scottish census, but I expect there were lots of people named Richard Forbes. do you have any other evidence or source for Adam and Agnes? I am not disagreeing with you, only hoping for more concrete proof or connection.
thank you for all your hard work and research.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 126993786 & # 126993707
It definitely refreshed my intentions to do more research after reading your report. Michael, son of Leonhard and Christine was my great grandfather and the first Michael in a long line of Michaels after him. There was considerable research in my ancestry account going back to C. 1630's on the Maurers. Like you, I found nothing for Eva but thanks to you I now have Margaret. I agree that the image in the 1850 census could be "Marg" instead of Mary and that resolves another question so I appreciate your response. I considered the name Of Rohmer as Christine's family name for a long time but came to the same conclusion some time ago that it was not accurate. Lestler is a new name for my research. Thank you again.

re: Margaret Maurer Ruebel & Christine Lestler Maurer, Scenic Hill Cemetery
I was thrilled to read your report. I have been searching for years to find the female offspring of Leonhard and Christine Maurer. Christine shows up in the 1850 census of St Louis MO as "Cho" along with her husband Leonhard listed as "L". "Michl", Mary and Eva are the children in 1850. By 1960 John and Joseph show up. I have never found Eva. Could it be that Mary and Margaret are the same person? The last name of Lestler for Christina was a name I had never heard until reading your post. Did I say that I was thrilled to get this information? thank you for your research.

RE: Roy Schlieper (74690589)
Verse on headstone:

"Favored of heaven to wear the crown
Without life's weary race to run"

The first line is from a Longfellow poem, but the second line is different. An Internet search showed the quote was widely used on headstones of children in the 19th century.

"Infant son" Schlieper
Dear Lynn:

I was at Hamburg Cemetery recently and came across the grave you recorded as "Infant Son" Schlieper (#74690589). The baby's name was Roy, which is barely legible on the top of the headstone. The birth and death dates on the face match my records for a child by that name born to Charles B. and Rachel (Wineland) Schlieper, who are buried at Pleasant Hill.

The grandfather you mentioned--Charles Henry Schlieper--was my great-great-grandfather. Roy would have been my paternal grandmother's first cousin.

Thanks for your work.

My pleasure! It makes me happy that I was able to help so your family could view it. I just started to assist and I decided to make it a habit to look around to make sure I might get other family members that might be around in case this helps people. Im happy I was able to get Shirley for you as well. :) Have a terrific day!

Samuel McCartney
I found Sam's tombstone while visiting the Carrico Plummer Cemetery. I also visited the Hardin County Clerk's office. In the write up on the site it states Sam was born in Belfast Ireland. Most census reports state he was born in Scotland.

Our family bible says Ireland. I have his 2 marriages and the children from those unions. But, I have NO other information on Sam.

I have been searching for him for 7 years - Sam is my Great Grandfather. Our line is Sam Mccartney - Hiram McCartney - Tony Mccartney - myself Patricia Ann McCartney.

I so want info on Sam and the previous generation - how did he get here?

Any help would be appreciated!
PS: So appreciate all the work you volunteers do!!

Thank you, Lisa,

You've certainly done your homework here. Are you related to this line?

I do need to put a note to update E. O.'s information. btw, he intentionally reversed his name when he went into the Army because he didn't care for "Oscar". The date was just an error somewhere along the way as Bible records also have it as 1893

Thanks for the help.

RE: Minnie Morrill
I agree with you. Death Certificates can have many mistakes, and you are probably correct for her burial, makes perfect sense that she would be buried with her husband. I will delete the memorial I made for her.
