RE: Helen Pickerill
Update done. Do you have any info on Helen's twin sister? What is the source for her date of death.

RE: Thank You! Divinia Photos & Plot Locations

Hello Again Gayle,

Thanks for the burial info you sent for both Divinia's. The date for the son fits the death date I have. However, William's does not. I used June 29, 1923 as his death date, am sure this was per the Requiem book in the Ness County Historical Society.

What is the source of your May 1923 date for burial? Our dates, of course, are contradictory so I'm curious.

I am packing for my trip to Missouri so will double-check at my end when I return (end of the month). Just wanted to let you know this and ask about your source while your message is "fresh". Thanks so much for sharing what you are finding.

RE: Thank You! Divinia Photos & Plot Locations

Hi Gayle,

Thank you for replying and for your work at Buda Cemetery. I am doing something similar at a smaller cemetery (long abandoned) in rural NW Missouri---in fact I'm making my 2nd trip of the year there next week. Hoping to buy a new marker for my 3X GGrandparents and get a sign made among other things.

I don't know William's middle name, no records I found for him gave it and I never had a real clue based on his father's name (Samuel) or those of other ancestors of his.

Since you mention William owned all 8 Sections in Lot 72, I'm curious who else is buried in that Lot. Would you be able to list the names for me?

I love to find out who is buried with/next to whom because it sometimes answers tough questions. I've already checked his daughter's married name (Davidson) and the boarders from Polo, MO (Myers) but none are in Buda.

Thanks again for the nice work you are doing at Buda. I agree with Paying it Forward and hope you can feel my warm appreciation all the way from California!

Vicki

Thank You! Divinia Photos & Plot Locations

Hello Gayle,

What a wonderful surprise to find your photos of the grave markers for William C Divinia and his son James Vance Divinia on their memorials! I had no idea if there would be a marker of any type on their graves and now I can see them!

I also appreciate you sending the Plot locations in Buda Cemetery where they are buried. I see they are in the same Lot but different Sections. If not too much trouble, would you let me know if that means they are side by side? William died about 9 years after his young son, so I'm unsure.

Do you volunteer at the Ness County Historical Society? Either way, I am so impressed with how helpful you and the women who assisted me with the Requiem info earlier this year have been.

Thank you for taking the time to go to Buda Cemetery and photograph William and James' markers and send the plot locations. I feel really good about my research into my Kansas Divinia ancestors and the photos are like the icing on the cake.

RE: John H McKelvy, Dighton Memorial Cemeter, Kansas
Thank you.

The flag poles that line the roads in the cemetery each have a veteran plaque with the name of a veteran, service and conflict. It's kind of a neat thing, particularly on Decoration Day (Memorial Day), the 4th of July and other holidays. It's a beautiful sight seeing all those flags snapping the Kansas breeze.

Pretty sure the plaque was done by my aunts, Gertrude and Blanche McKelvy but I could be wrong about exactly who did it.

John H McKelvy, Dighton Memorial Cemeter, Kansas
Hi.

John H. McKelvy (not McKelvey) was my great grandfather.

He did not serve in the Navy, he served in the Army during the Civil War, specifically, Company K, 4th Regiment, Pennsylvania Cavalry. He was living in Barkeyville, Venango, Pennsylvania at the time of the naval record (it's a different guy).

Most of the other information is correct (actually, I think I provided it).

The kids who dug up his remains at Ravanna did so in June, 1969 and were ordered to clean up the cemetery, excavate the grave under the direction of a archeologist, buy a coffin and attend the burial at Dighton Memorial Cemetery.

I'd appreciate it if you could correct the information and, if you need more information I'll be happy to provide it. You can contact me at ronayne dot thomas at grmail dot com.

Thank you,

Thomas Ronayne

Gayle, did you update grandpa's list of children by adding the three missing children? As you may or may not know, VonRay McMillan is a half brother of my father's (Harlon O'Neil). We actually believe there are more half siblings!!!

Hey Gayle, I'm disabled therefore I'm always available by phone
I don't check my I-pad daily so I might not get your msg or reply for couple of days
Thank you for your quick response
Soooooo, tell me about your family! I didn't even know you existed. I thought my grandpa only had two brothers and two sisters! The brother I knew the best was Uncle Hubert as he too lived in Greenville/Newport Tenn. area. I don't remember ever meeting any of his other siblings and as I said before, my mom could only remember 4!
Do you know where any of the other relatives live? You live where in NC? I live in Spartanburg, SC.
I'm so excited to meet people on my fathers side of the family.
Besides knowing my great grandmother Gertie Eisenhower I have searched on ancestry.com to no avail on finding info on my grandpa's family, besides knowing his parents names.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you for posting and photographing the stone of Charles and Ada. Do you mind if I post it to my Ancestry site. Charles would be my 2nd cousin 2x removed on my maternal line from Shively/Sheibley.
Are we related?

Did I suggest to you that these are duplicates? If so, I apologize.

By the way, the name is obviously SAFFOLD, not Safford. I know because I used to be married to one.

Thank you for listing the information. You have her date of birth as 1709, the headstone has 1790. I realized this when Ancestry told me there was over 100 years between her birth and death dates.

Hi! I was browsing Baker Cemeteries and come across your listing which includes Sallie Baker, who passed in July 1860. I am curious to find out if you have any other information on her. If you are any kin to her? I have a Sarah Baker (aka: Sallie) that passed in July 1861 and was wondering if they could possibly be the same person? Thank you so much in advance.
