RE: Fred and Loraine Humphrey
I am related, but kind of shirt tail. Without looking I would guess first or second cousin 3 or 4 times removed. Still looking for my 3GG grandmother. She was married to a Bowman.
Their daughter married a Humphrey.

RE: Joshua Wilde
That's a darn good question. It is calculated, but I didn't do it. I always wondered why many of the old tombstones didn't put down dates, but rather years, months, and dates. Sometime during the 1750's the British changed over their calendars from the Gregorian to the Julian. Since we were under British rule then, we changed too. I think it made for about an 11-day difference. Plus, there are leap years involved. Try and do all that in your head. Well, I found a website that does tombstone calculations. And that's how I've come up with the dates. They're probably correct, but that's assuming the information on the stone is correct. If they're not, they're pretty close. Since I, myself, don't have any concrete information as to the date, I'd say adding the note is a good idea.

Thanks for asking. I wish there were a place to make a note about this when I send in the dates, but there isn't.

RE: Harvey and Emma Thompson
Hi Kathy!

You're welcome and no problem. I definitely don't think it was a wild goose chase. I enjoy the hunt when I have a place to start! If you need anything else just let me know and it's been great working with you!

Jesse and Annabelle Morey #154921156 and #154920998

It seemed easier to transfer Jesse and Annabelle Morey to you. I think that works out best. I have never done a Find A Grave merger so I have no idea what that entails.

I had set up bare bones information for Jesse and Annabelle with the intent to go back and round them out at a later date or when I had made it to that part of the cemetery for photo taking.

Usually when I am working from the Forest Lawn database, and I do a search on, any other Find A Grave memorials come up so I know that I need to delete mine and add photo and burial information to the pre-existing Find A Grave#. For some reason that didn't happen with Jesse and Annabelle.

I have had several instances where an unknown burial location has been much more helpful for all involved. I have looked at the Find A Grave message board and I have rarely found that what is said there by the mediators gets translated correctly through member communications with each other on memorials.

I know a lot of people are painfully stuck on following Find A Grave guidelines as if they were "life or death" =) situations but thinking outside the limited framework of what is a memorial can solve many family mysteries.

On that note this is what I found for Helen Morey:

MOREY, Helen; aged 25; married Daniel Valentine GODARD; aged 27; Aug 1917; Omaha, Nebraska; license# 43090.

The daughters of Helen and Daniel were Jean and Martha Godard.

I looked for Martha with the surname spelled Godard and Goddard and couldn't find her easily.

Jean Godard was born in Omaha on October 13th, 1918.

Jean had the married names of Sutton and Hemingway.

She married Carl L Sutton in San Diego County, California on May 19th, 1951 when she was 32 years old. Her spouse was 41.

I did not find where she obtained the married name of Hemingway.

Jean passed away on October 4th 1992 in Arizona? One piece of info gives her final married name as Sutton while she comes up under Social Security as Hemingway.

It appears that Helen Morey Godard passed away in Florida in June of 1983. Her last residence was Altamonte Springs. No Find A Grave popped up for her though.

Here is one of the most helpful sites I have found for Omaha marriages and obits:

Explore all the pages, including surrounding counties, to Omaha if you have time. Many people who lived in Omaha went to next door counties to get married for some reason. It must have been easier.

I hope this info aids you in your search.

I'm sorry about the duplicate memorials but I take heart that maybe some good did come out of them for all of us.

Suggestions followed. This was entered when I did not realize the confusion that would result. I have since changed my ways. Thanks for the corrections. Judy

Charles Hammond
Kathy, I wrote to thank you for the photo of little Charles Hammond's grave marker. I went to the cemetery many years ago and tried in vain to find it, as well as one for his father of the same name, which I never located. But perhaps there never was a marker. He died in 1859. ~Karen

I am such a "happy camper" this morning because I found memorials and pictures of some of my family on Find A Grave that I never thought I would see. Thank you for posting this cemetery.

RE: John, Paulina, Glenn, and Mildred
Hi Kathy - You're Welcome! Glad I could help. For the other pic requests in Section 6, I'm going to have to go back. I couldn't find them the first time around. I did find another Thompson though, Edwin G. Thompson 5/2/1877 to 6/19/1948, a couple of lots down (maybe 216). He was buried with the surnames of Craig, McComb and Johnson. Based on the way they're placed and that they have the same type stone they must be together. Could be just a coincidence but thought I'd let you know. Talk to you soon!

RE: Oakridge-Glen Oak
Hi Kathy! That's sweet of you to say. Thank you. Yes, I do spend a considerable amount of time there. I've also already claimed your pic requests. Weather permitting, I'll get out there sometime this week. I think Mother Nature is on strike around here. One day it's 60 and then the next day we have snow. Talk to you soon. Thanks again, Stacey

Yes, even a missed period can make a huge difference and will take anything you throw my way. Love updates of any kind.

Thanks so much for the great photo of her headstone. I do appreciate all you do for Find A Grave too. I know what a thankless job it can be sometimes but it so rewarding in the end.

RE: Halstead-Fillmore Cemetery
Hello cousin:

I think that I have only taken requested photos for Filmore-Halsted cemetery. I can't recall if I did them all or not, so it is a worthwhile effort for you to follow up on if you wish, or I can pursue it more rigorously myself, if you prefer.

Harriet Ortt (1851-1926) is the wife of my 1st great grand uncle. Charles was a brother of my great grandfather Edward Siddall (1854-1932).

Horace Talcott
Hi Kathy, thanks for the info. Every record seems to agree that Horace served in Co. K, 151st NY Infantry then transferred to Co. 119, 2nd Battalion Veteran Reserve Corps but for whatever reason he's just not on the official roster. At least not the one found here:

RE: Martin, Maude, Carl, Eleanor Schrader
Hello Kathy,

Martin Schrader was the husband of my 3rd cousin 3x removed. She was his 2nd wife and buried somewhere else. So no, I'm not directly related to Martin, Maude or any other family members. But I still want to dot all the i's on my tree. Out of respect.

Wow! I was gonna do that in a bit but you've already got it done... Thanks! Chief Layton Wehling were in the same reserve unit and I've known him for almost 30 years. I was informed this yesterday evening that he was the last of them to pass.
