Virgie Bragg Saffel Spencer Bohannan
Hi, ole me from Montana again.
I just saw where you had left a memorial for Virgie as FAMILY. I find that really interesting as I am related to her daughter Virgie Venora Spencer Jennings. I thank you for putting that on the page and for all you do in behalf of the Spencer, Bragg and all others when you post all the information about these wonderful people.
Just because I consider you a "Cousin" of sorts.

Thank you again for all you have done and continue to do.

Thank you so much for the photos of my Grandparents' headstone! They lived in La Plata until their death and I haven't been back in that area since then. I'm so glad to have those photos for my collection of family history. What a kind service you have provided! - Janet

RE: Galpin ancestry & Bible.
I fund the book through Higginson Book Company and ordered it. Godspeed in Boston closed in 1993, sadly. Cost of lease and taxes according to an article led to it's closure.

Thanks, I did add marriage date to both Elisha and Jerusha's bio, thanks for that!

I also look forward to working with you!!!!

George Abernathy
RE: John A Abernathy
Martin Abernathy (1832-1906) married Elizabeth A Summerloft (1834-1870) and they had 4 children: Margaret E (1865-), Albert (1858-1933, Charles (1861-1925) and George (1867). Charles married Mary A Havaland (1876-1936) and they had 6 children, one of which was my grandfather, Clarence M (1892-1965). My grandfather was born in Newton, Jasper County, Iowa and died in LA, Calif 4/65.

I can remember my father, George W, talking about a distant relative residing somewhere in the Ozarks that he would visit with his family. That person could have been a sibling of my grandfather, Clarence, or an aunt/uncle - I don't know as I'm attempting to follow the line of Charles and Mary A. Havaland) and have not gone into researching any family line into MO.

RE: Galpin ancestry & Bible.
I have read excerpts from Galpin Family in America but definitely need a copy! Thanks for the information, and that's exciting about the family Bible. I had once traced a long lost cousin I. MO to Benjamin Galpin, one of Philip's sons. I descend from Benjamin's brother Samuel 7th great grandfather for me.

John A Abernathy
To Farm Girl from MO

I believe John A Abernathy is my GGG-grandfather. If you have any info to shed on this assumption, I would appreciate it. My great grandfather was Charles and his father was Martin. I believe he was the 7th child of John A - my grandfather was Clarence M and my dad was George W.

Irene Williams -La Plata cemetery
I believe she is Irene (Smelser) Williams -married to Thomas Williams.
She was born July 7, 1847 and died after 1920 - she was widowed and 73 years old in the 1920 census.
My guess would be that she died between 1920 and 1930.
Hope this is of some help.
Thanks so much for your message.

Cheryle Montgomery
Elizabeth Bell Wade Collins
I am wondering about the information for Elizabeth #74607554. She was the second wife of Jonathan Thomas Collins and died early in 1846 after giving birth. We believe she died in Tennessee (that is where their last child was born) and then Jonathan Thomas Collins married his third wife, Rebecca Schell Franklin in Tennessee in 1946. They then moved to MO. I'm not absolutely sure about all of the data and I'm hoping you can add something that will help clear it up.

Thanks so much!

Morgan Williams
I just transferred Morgan's Memorial to you. I think he is my GG Grandfather's Father in Law. But, I am not sure and was looking for more information. Maybe his will to list his children?

Oren Elwood Slaughter
Hi, I'm Oren's youngest daughter. I've submitted an edit on his date of date as well as for my mom Doris Jean McCullough Slaughter. They died on 1/28/2004. His middle name is "Elwood" which is correct on the record but not on the submitted story.

Thank you!

RE: Multiple last names
okay, I'm sorry. I didn't see a headstone, so I didn't know what name was listed there. Thanks for sending me good feedback.

Jane Snell Copes
Julia Black Cunningham's parents
Her mother was Ann Catherine Summers Black (later Snell). I have not been able to find Ann's grave, although it is reported to be in Masonic Cemetery, Shelby County, IL. Ann's second husband was William Henry Snell (48530528). They were my great-grandparents.

I believe Julia's father was Josiah L. Black. I have not been able to find his grave or death information. This family lived in Shelby County, IL.

Julia F. Black Gaither photo
Hello, I'm looking for the SOURCE for photo of Julia and Charles Cunningham on their memorial pages (Charles 24678818; Julia 24956703). She was my grandfather's eldest sister, and I don't think we have any pictures of her.

They lived in LaPlata, MO for quite some time before coming back to Macon County, Illinois in early 19-teens.

Thanks from Jane Snell Copes
