Hello Beverly,

You sent me an edit for Jack Harbeck and added a note about his mother being Beatrice Tythcott, but then you sent me an edit for Beatrice Tythcott herself who is also under my tutelage. I went ahead and connected her to Jack and also her husband Milton Harbeck. If they are relation of yours please let me know and I would gladly transfer them to you. Like my bio states I believe family should be with family.

Thank you,

Rob (YankeeGraver)

My Furys came into New Orleans through KY and OH then up to Upstate NY. I'm having a heck of a time tracing back to Ireland from there and I even have the names.

I think I've seen similar things in my searchings on Ancestry. my surname does not have the e in it but during research I recall seeing something along your lines but have no information otherwise. Good luck!

Ok, I did find her in my old Family Tree Maker, but I am very remotely connected and am unable to find a connection as to why she even appears in this tree. I have no information other than what is easily available through search engines.

Why do you think I am related/connected? I have not checked all of my trees at ancestry, but am not aware of a connection.

Chris Grimes
RE: Franklin Grimes & Phoebie Ann Moore
Hi Beverly!

Thanks for sending me a message, good to know there are other relatives interested in our shared history! I will have to look to see if I have pictures of Phebie. I know I have one of her Uncles farm house in Belmont, and it quite old- turn of the century.
I am traveling this week for work so I will not be able to look until the end of the week but once I do I am happy to scan and send to you.
On the flip side if you have any timeline or places in Iowa or before Iowa where they were that you could share I would appreciate!
I know that her husband (I'm sure you do to) lived in Keota, IA, Ben's brother L.R. Grimes was the 2nd elected auditor for the state of WA and in part this is why they moved from WI to WA.

Hi Bev,

I do not to my knowledge have any pictures of the Grimes but I do have all the volumes of the Washurn County Histories. I am traveling currently but would be happy to look them up when I return. There may be a picture and I know for sure there is more of Alton's story there. I don't know what Jerry Grimes you are referring to, Jerry Tolene, who also has a stone there in Greenwood is my father. My grandmother also lived in IA for a while in Anthon.

God Bless and More Soon,

RE: Grimes
Thank you for your very quick reply.
How did you come to have the photo of Jerry?
Would you happen to have any photos with the Grimes family in them?
I would love to have copies if you do.
I'll check out the info you gave me.
Thanks so much for reaching out to me.
I live in Des Moines, Ia. about 1 1/2 hrs from Ia City Ia where the Moore/Grimes family lived from 1854

Hi Beverly,

The Grimes' were neighbors of my family in Minong both in life and in the graveyard. The story is Alton's own words as told to a member of the Washburn County Historical Society. There is an attribution on his memorial. I believe his story is in vol. 2. The books were well done and if you are interested in owning them either the historical society or the spooner advocate newspaper has them I think still.

Peace in Christ,

Are you related" His mother is my gr aunt.
Would love to share/compare history.
If you aren't, could you tell me who is the person who wrote the story on Find A Grave for Alton?
Thanks and I anxiously await your response.

Hi, Beverly,
Sorry it took so long to respond. No, I am not a relative of anyone in the Hardin family. I sometimes leave flowers or a tribute at random.

Sorry I can't help you in your search.

Take Care,

Hi Beverley - I saw your query on the page of a member who left 'virtual flowers' on your family member's grave. You should not expect an answer, but for your info: the member is not related. check the member's profile and the number of 'flowers' placed, and note that the image was placed on Sherman Purdy's page within moments of your creation of the memorial. If you prefer not to have random images placed on family members' memorials you maintain, you can ask the site management to remove them. Hope that helps.
