John or Linda:

About a week ago I sent an Edit to you for Find a Grave # 6169563, adding a link to his father. You should find that in your "Edits" tab at your Find A Grave Contributor homepage. If you do not, please let me know and I will resend. Could I get you to process this Edit? Or, if you prefer, you make send the memorial to me (see Find a Grave Contributor # below) and I will Edit it. I have quite a bit of biographical info on # 6169563, as well. I am a DNA relative of his.

Kind regards,

John Powell

Hi John & Linda,
I went to the Eastern Cemetery in Dundee yesterday, unfortunately the gravestone is no longer there. Lots of missing and damaged stones. Sorry i could not be of more help.

RE: David Welcom Martin
If you will email me using this address: I will send you a copy of the letter claiming that David Welcome Martin was the son of James Martin. I feel that your info on David is probably correct but the person that wrote the letter thinks differently. I will also explain my Martin ancestry.

No family marker, just individual markers.

I will have to check about the large family marker. I was concentrating on the individual markers.

Hello... I was wondering if you wouldn't mind transferring this memorial to me please. I am a family member and would like to add more information to the memorial and link her to other family members.

Thank you so much!

Thank you for the transfer. I think that this lady is Anna Margaret Zingg Martin. Her husband is Oldis Rudell Martin. Oldis is also buried in the same cemetery. If this is Anna Margaret Zingg, her parents were Immigrants from Switzerland, Pieter Zingg and Ursula Sulser Zingg. The Zinggs connect into one of my families line.

Dana Thompson
Septimus F. R. Thompson
Thank you so much for finding this obscure piece of information on the Thompson family. My great grandfather was one of those minor children. I have extensively researched all 9 of Septimus' children with his first wife--Letitia Elizabeth Taylor Thompson. (Does anyone have any information about her date of death or burial place?) Here are some quick details about their children; anyone can contact me if they want more information.
Samuel D. (1847-? burial place unknown, possibly Arkansas or Kentucky), Willis Abbey (1849-1859 TX), Albert Henry (1851-1937), Benjamin Taylor (1853-1921), Elijah Tinder (1855-1937), Sarah Alice (1857-1942), George M. (1865-1926), Charles L. (1868-1950 CA), John S. (March 1871 - October 1951). For the Wheeler family, here is another curiosity that you might want to look into: Charles L. Thompson married Minnie Rickey in Texas in 1896; they moved to Oklahoma and had several children; Minnie and their children all died in Autumn 1901. In December 1905, Charles married May Wheeler, both of Sulphur, OK. They had several children. Later they moved to Oakland, CA where they were divorced. May remarried to Earl Mallory, but Charles remained single until his death.

David Howard
Robert Allen DeLaRosa
Concerning my son's name being included on your site. His legal name is Robert Allen DeLaRosa. You identify him as Robert Allen DeLaRosa-Savory. Savory is Robert's stepfather's last name, not Robert's. As Robert's closest living biological relative I request that changes be be made to properly identify my son by his legal name only. Mr Savory is of questionable character, especially concerning his behavior around children and it causes a certain amount of distress to see his name associated with my family. Thank you.

Rufus Wheeler letter
The Rufus Wheeler letter has fascinated me from the moment I saw it. I'm amazed at how he names names, children, siblings, etc. I just stumbled onto something this morning. This letter mentions a sister of Rufus' grandfather (John Wheeler) who was a member of the first colony in Georgia. A couple of words have been unreadable to me until now. I now think Rufus wrote "Oglethorpe Colony." James Oglethorpe was the leader of the first colony of Georgia in 1733 which "sailed from Gravesend on the River Thames." I know the dates may not correspond, but Rufus is saying she became a part of that colony.

RE: Robert L Grant, Jr
Thank you very much. I wish others would see it your way. My wife says I spend too much time "digging up bones" but it almost an obsession for me in that I want to ensure others that passed before me are not forgotten. Its the least that I can do for them.
Again, thank you.

Thank you so very much for transferring Uncle Dave to me and doing his updates. I was so thrilled to have found him the other day. He was the last of 10 children and now they are all joined together on earth and in Heaven. Good luck in all you do. God Speed

RE: McConnell photos
Oscar McConnell was married to my gg-grandmother's sister. Their last living descendant, Elaine (Manning) Dean, maintained family photo albums now in my possession. Included are photos from a McConnell family reunion from 1927 in So. Cal. attended by Oscar, Cora, Charles, and the Kennedy offspring.
