RE: Hugs sent your way!
And hugs and thanks back to you! You may not have noticed, but on the photo I added to John Bain (#146444412), he has a wife, Helen Mary (Todd) Bain (1915-1967). She does not have a Find-a-Grave memorial yet. If you want to add her, go ahead. Otherwise, I'll add her tomorrow or the next day when the rest of the current batch is processed.

lauder, chalmers, mcewan
Thank you for the contributing the information on the Lauder, Chalmers and McEwan families of Albany and Brooklyn.
You have listed a date of death for James Chalmers in Scotland - is it on the gravestone of his son John or have you found it elsewhere?
I have been searching for that information for SO long and the date you give is within the years I had narrowed it down too. So I dont doubt it.

RE: How interesting!
Further information re the Van Blarcoms, one of the daughters of Isaac, I think it was Martha married a Day in Ohio - they are also related to me through marriage. My great great aunt Mary Jane Johnson married Timothy Crane Day a Congressman from Ohio and his sister Mary Jane Day married Mary Jane Johnson's brother Jeremiah M. Johnson and my great great uncle (brother and sister of my great great grandfather). The two Mary Janes were best friends and I am trying to find out more about this connection because it will probably give us more information. It was Tim Day's daughter who wrote the book 'The Man on the HillTop' about her father and who wrote about Isaac Van Blarcom and Aunt Martha. Interesting and yes, I cannot wait to discover more!
Kind regards, Sharon Johnson

RE: Cheery Hello Sharon
Thank you for your message. I can help with how we fit in to the Van Blarcom Tree. Isaac Van Blaarcom born 1736 and d1813 was the great great grandfather of my 3rd great grandmother Jane (Jannitje) Van Blarcom, who married my 3rd great grandfather Jeremiah Johnson in New York some time between 1812 and 1817 we believe. We can find no records. They had several children, one of whom was my great great grandfather William Jewett Johnson b 1828 d 1874. He had two children with his wife Anna Jane Semple Johnson, George Semple Johnson and Mary Johnson. George emigrated to New Zealand after working on a ship for we think nine years and married the daughter of a ship captain.They went on to have seven children - six sons, one daughter and one of those was my grandfather Leonard Semple Johnson (later named James Leonard Semple Johnson). He married twice, once to a woman dying of tuberculosis at the tender age of 21 and then my grandmother, Alice Mary Phoebe Waide six years later. They had 6 children, 4 sons, 2 daughters. My father was the eldest son. We know little of the Van Blarcom family because we can find no records. We have a note in a book written by a relative, Sarah Jane Day, that my 3rd ggrandmother was orphaned very young. Her father was John (Johannes) Van Blarcom who died we think about 1805 placing Jane at 13 years of age and he married a woman name Sara (Saartje) - because we have no surname we cannot find any evidence or records of her death and also because there don't appear to be any records. All the Dutch records have just her first name Saartje.

RE: Quick Question
Memorial# 150510303 Emily Vallin

Cemetery in Swedish = Kyrkogård.

I have sent you an edit about Albin Vallin a few days ago. It is still pending.

Emily’s children Mildred and Hilda didn’t go back to the US until four months after their mother’s death. Where were they when their mother was at the sanatorium and after that? Obviously in Oulu, Finland, at least part of the time.

I don’t believe that Emily went to Sweden May 1906, with two small children and without her husband, to die in a sanatorium in Mörsil. I believe that she intended to visit parents and relatives, in Finland and/or Sweden. I believe she became seriously ill or more ill than before and was admitted to the sanatorium in Mörsil, Sweden, where she died March 19, 1907. She was buried April 6. As far as I can see Albin Vallin didn’t go to Sweden for funeral and to bring home his children.

Kind regards

RE: Thanks ever so much Bo!
Memorial# 150510303 Emily Vallin.

Patients in the sanatorium in Mörsil were not registered in the Swedish church records, except the death record. The death record gives the additional information that Emily was buried April 6. 1907. There is no annotation about burial elsewhere, which means that she was buried in one of the two cemeteries in Mörsil. The cemetery administration says that deceased patients from the sanatorium were buried in one of the cemeteries and that cemetery should be Mörsil Eastern Cemetery. I will register the cemetery in Find A Grave.

Emily's children Mildred (b. 1898/1899) and Hilda (b. 1901/1902), who came with their mother to Sweden in 1906, went back in 1907, departure from Gothenburg August 19, 1907. They traveled together with Carl A Andersson (b. 1863/1864) from America and Lisa Lindeman (b. 1886/1887) from Finland. The Ellis Island record says that last residence for Lisa, Mildred and Hilda was Ola, Finland. Last residence for Carl A Andersson was Stånga, Gotland, Sweden.

Kind regards

RE: Thanks EVER so much!
Memorial# 150510303 Emily Vallin.

I asked the cemetery administration about her burial. She is not in the grave record, probably because the record from that time is incomplete. They suppose that the grave is reclaimed and that the possible gravestone is removed. Graves of those who died at the sanatorium usually had a white wooden cross, they told me.

The "death record" you have is an extract, not the real source. The real death record may have more details. I can't get access to it from home, but I intend to visit the City Archives in Malmö, where I live.

Emily died from tubercolosis. Mörsil sanatorium, opened in 1891, was the first sanatorium in Sweden. I have a picture of it, but I can't send it this way.

If I find the relevant cemetery I will register it for you.

I can't identify Emily Linner in the Swedish church records. I am not sure her last name was Linner.

Kind regards

RE: HUGS and more hugs of appreciation sent your way!
You are very welcome for the McPhail pics. You will notice that a few do not have markers but I posted a wide-view of the plot for them.
I also have an obit for Elizabeth Ann McPhail if you want it, but I notice you don't have an email listed to send it to. Email me if you want it.

RE: Cheery hello sent your way!
There are two cemeteries in Mörsil, Åre municipality, Jämtland County, Sweden: Eastern and Western. None of them is registered in Find A Grave. There are no public records of those buried in the cemeteries. I will try to find it out in other ways.

I can see that Emily Vallin died at the sanatorium in Mörsil.

Kind regards

Cemetery Photos
I received your very kind email and I thank you so much for your comments. There was no email available for a response, so this will have to do.
The photos from Montana Baptist are 6 years old. My more recent photos are much nicer since larger pictures are now allowed. I always try to get a closeup and a distant photo. I strive for Find a Grave, not Find a Marker. Plus, an area photo gives someone a real chance of finding the grave if they'd like, plus they can see if it's a family plot.
Best wishes on your Genealogy research. I'm glad I was able to add something to your hobby.

RE: That I do!
Please let me know if I can help, his Grandfather was a Preacher/Farmer (Perry Wilson) who cared for his Mother Sarah late in her life. It was a big mystery for a while where Sarah (my GG Grandmother) disappeared to, I imagine the trip from Oklahoma to California a bit like "Family Vacation" with Imogene Coca :)

Luther Wilson #146495001
Hello and thank you for your attention to Find a grave. I noticed your entry for Luther Wilson #146495001 and was confused for a bit. Thanks for the Bakersfield Newspaper entry which is full of information. I believe that this person is the same as entry #92213346 so rather than Luther being buried at Hillcrest there is a pictured headstone for him in the Porterville Cemetery. The newspaper probably ran the article as his Children were living in Bakersfield. I don't know where he died but the Social Security death index show Fresno County so either visiting for work or pleasure I would guess he died up North. I'm trying to figure out this branch of the Wilson's, Luther here would be a second cousin to my Mother. Thanks again, Wayne

RE: Hello my new friend!
Here is what I have come up with, I hope it helps.
He was in the Peninsula Campaign. In the battle for Malvern Hill, he was wounded in the head and taken prisoner, He was exchanged prior to the battle of Antietam, where he was killed on Sept 17,1862. b. 23 Sept 1834, Sullivan County, NY. His father was Daniel M. and his mother, Catherine Crissey. I have no information as to when he married, but his wife, Mary C. Angell applied for a pension on Apr 7,1882, application # 291,362. His enlistment records list him as single, so don't know when he married. The information comes from the NY Town Clerk's register 1861-1865, and pension records.Ted
