Hi Lynn

Don't mean to be a pest but I noticed an error.
The Ruff's lived in Salem Township, of Auglaize County, Ohio. You have Twp & County reversed. I appreciate that you care about how the data is presented.
I was a presenter at a genealogy workshop at my public library a while back. We had a History Professor from a Michigan university as a speaker. She said," Be sure to be as accurate as you can be when publishing data. You may be the only one in the current generation who will do it. Your children don't usually care about the "Family Tree" but your grand children and those after them will care"! It's up to us!
Have a great day, Dave

Bob Powers
William Franklin Powers
I was working on Powers family trees when I found the branch buried in the Scenic Hill Cemetery in Grafton, Jersey, Illinois.

I saw that you had mentioned that you couldn't find William Franklin Powers' headstone.

Could it be that Frank Powers (Find A Grave Memorial# 126993753) is the same person?

RE: Ruth E. Rhein
Hi Lynn,
Your welcome! She is off of my Grandma's side of the family, and I hate to see someone not connected to either their parents or spouse or siblings. It just doesn't seem right. Anyway, I'm glad if the info helps you and anyone else who is looking to find their tree/roots.

Glad to help.

I have been researching other members of the Johnson family as well, and I'm happy to share anything else I can.

James Richard Ouimette
Mahala Garrison Fuller
Thank you so much for your photo of Mahala's gravesite! She was my dad's great grandmother. Mahala and Richard Fuller's youngest child was Laura Jane, who married Thomas Howell and gave birth to five girls, of which the youngest was Winifred Rachel Howell. Winifred was Dad's mother.

Would you mind transferring ownership of Mahala's website to me? I manage her daughter Laura and granddaughter Winifred's FindaGrave sites.

Mahala's husband Richard died in 1859 in Grafton on their farm. Do you have any idea where Richard might be buried?

Since the mother Florence is buried in the North cemetery, I would also assume that the stillborn child would also be buried there rather than in the Old Section on which I am working. I have transferred the page back to you. Thanks.

Jeff Kirn
Lesley Kirn
Hi Lynn. I have created a new site for Page Harrell named after his granfather of the same name, (my first one). We found it underground and reset it. I was wondering if you could add a name to the list of children for Louis L. Kirn (husband of Minnie Ingle). One of the children is not listed. He is Lesley Kirn. He was my grandfather Carl's youngest brother. He is buried at the Chapel of the Chimes in Hayward California but there is no find a grave site for him and I cannot find him mentioned on their site. He is definitely there as confirmed by his daughter. I have a picture of Lesley with my father. That would complete the list of Louis and Minnie's children. Thank you for your help. Jeff Kirn

RE: Roland/Rollan Hesson
Hello, Wow that was fast. Thanks for contacting the contributor and getting the information all in one place. It's funny how one little picture will change what you thought you knew about past relatives. I'm glad the spelling of his name was straightened out.
By the way, do you know how Rollan died? He was so young.
Thanks again.

No need to transfer back to me. I just took a photo while in the cemetery doing a nearby photo request.

I do not know Rollan Hesson. Thanks for improving the memorial! -- Karl Kleen

Moses first name is Dani-e-l on memorial and so is his son's name (a Jr) and son's gravestone. Dad's gravestone has Dani-a-l, however. I suspect the stone is wrong, or son changed spelling. Can't decide if this really requires review or not, but wanted to call to your attention.

I am certain that this is the Benjamin I am looking for. He never married and left Pa to go to Illinois
I would love for you to transfer to me 47653547.
Just in case you don't want to, I'll leave some information on his page for you to update.

Once again, Lynn, you knocked it right out of the ballpark. Great job on his memorial. I wish I had a photo of William (Bill) Roth and Theodore together for you. Thanks for including the tidbit about his farm. His memorial page is very nice and respectful. Again, I thank you for all that you do for find a grave. BD

RE: Earl Hubbman at Salem Lutheran Cemetery
Hi Lynn: You are 100% correct about the spelling of the name Hubbmann. It is at time confusing, disappointing, and frustrating. I support your decision to leave the memorial unchanged.

I have another such issue with one of my memorials. We make the best decisions with the totality of the information that we have. I am a type A personality and totally want to "get it right".

I just spoke with Earl's daughter last week, but the next time we talk....I will ask her if she can shed any light about the many various spellings of the name.

I share several things with you: a passion for find a grave, a love of dogs (but do not have my dear Tippy on my find a grave page), and a true sadness about find a grave handing over the reins to Ancestry.

Again, I do so enjoy reading your memorials whenever I come across them. They are so much more than just dates of birth and death. Your pages are honoring to those who have gone before us and to whom we will see again.

After I posted this, I got to thinking that Fredrickson was probably her maiden name. If you'll write to, i can send you a picture.

I have a old picture of this woman that I found among some old boxes. It looks like a graduation picture, as she is holding a scroll.
Don't know if it's connected to the woman in your memorial or not.

Do you have connections to this family, that they might want to take a look at this picture, and see any resemblance in pictures they might have?

I live in Wyoming, near Lander. I believe the photo may have belonged to my mom's cousin, Roy (W.R.) Anderson, as i recognize the handwriting on the back to be his.

Any info you might be able to share would be appreciated.

I don't believe she is connected to my family (Shockley, Parker, Haynes, Rogers, (These would be the family that Roy would have known). His father, I believe was from Lake City, Iowa, in case, that helps. I believe T.L. Anderson?
