You sent an edit to link Mary to her first and her second husband.
I honestly believe that edit is not going to work. Either it will not work, or, it will make two links for the same person to the same wife???
Mary is already linked to her second husband Samuel. And, I did not make that link. Somebody else did.
So asking for somebody's pages to be linked together that are already linked together does not work on Find A Grave.

RE: Mary J. Caldwell
They have the Tozier Cemetery index as well as other cemetery indexes at the Macon Library. They may have other info that would be of interest to you?

Mary J. Caldwell
The Macon County Historical Society sent me a cemetery index for Tozier Cemetery, or a copy of it rather. It has Mary Caldwell listed in it and it is absolutely 100 percent 1890 as a year of death. O's and 9's can often times be mistaken for each other if not clearly written.
But, just because this index says 1890, does not necessarily make it right. Maybe the index is the one in error???
As you well know, it cannot be 1890 and 1899 both unless she was raised from the dead in 1890?! :-]
Don't know what else to tell you. Don't know how to solve the problem, short of getting a time machine and going back and preventing the fire that destroyed the 1890 census.

CUNNINGHAM? family photos
Hello, I've just recently scanned some family photos that I think include Julia Black Cunningham and Charles Wallace Cunningham and children. Could I email a few to you to see if you have them also in your Cunningham album? Not many are marked with names, but the photographer's info is for towns they would have lived in.

Thanks from Jane Snell Copes

If this is not good use of your time, please just say so!

Warren & Austill Families
Recently found my link to these families. Am interested in Rebecca Warren Austill Trindle and her daughter Melinda Austill Jackson.

They lived in Ohio and Indiana and Illinois. Melinda's daughter Hannah married a Charles Clapper and moved to Missouri sometime around 1870.

If you have any research on these ladies I would so appreciate your sharing. I am staring at that famous "Brick Wall".

Thank you so much for reading my plea.

RE: Unmarked graves at Mt. Tabor
Thank you for your message! That gives me hope that I may find burials at Mt. Tabor from the 1800's that may not have a stone in the Historical Society's listings.

RE: Thanks for retaking the stones at Wilsontown.
You are welcome. They were difficult and may never look any better. We have tried to clean all of the headstones in Wilsontown. Some came out really good. Have discovered seven or eight new headstones and they look good. Found a Clark and a Taylor in the thicket out by the blacktop.
It's good to hear from you. Alberta Gary says hello.

Unmarked graves at Mt. Tabor
It is interesting to know that there are a number of unmarked graves at Mt. Tabor. I am ever on the lookout for John H. McWilliams, who died in 1870. I have long been suspicious that he is buried at Mt. Tabor as he was living in the area, but I have absolutely no proof. I have wondered if the Macon County Historical Society's cemetery records for Mt. Tabor may contain some not found in Ellsberry's book. I need to check into that.

Thank You for the additional information about Martha Goodson's marriage. Sounds like a Civil War bride to me. It will be difficult to find her.

Thank You again.

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!!!!

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.

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.
