You created a memorial page for Lola Benschoter, are you related to her?

May Aunt Ruby (Knickerbocker) Heineman twin sister is her mother Ruth Knickerbocker.

I'm trying to find some information on Ruth, and I'm hoping if you could help me.

RE: Wickwire pics
You're very welcome. I believe I have Lydia Wickwire's dates correct. I have added a photo to her memorial to try and make it more clear. The dates on her headstone are in agreement with my notes. - - Bill

I think he is in the Fruitland Cemetery. It's about an hours drive from here. I will get out there on my next trip to the city.

Hi Kathy, I went to Duchesne City Cemetery today. They have no record of Howard Otis Brooks. I will do some more research and see if I can find out where he is buried.

Turnbull Grave
I was at the Glencoe/Mt. Auburn cem. today. Lucy's husband is not buried anywhere near her. He is also not in Section D that I could find. If you know the plot # for Lucy and others in the cem. I will be glad to add it to the memorials.
If I ever come across James I will contact you.

Kathy, according to his 91 year old sister Evelyn, there is suppose to be a Raymond Pruss buried next to his mother Valeria, in St. Josaphat's Cemetery in Loup City. He was born in 1919 in Loup City, and suppose to have died in his teens. She also said there was no headstone. She figured the Catholic Church should have records of it. Is there anything you can do to help me find out if he is buried there? P. Mazankowski

Didn't see your note until I got home from cem. I do not suspect that husband James is there otherwise I would have found it last year. I took and submitted these same similar photos to Find A Grave last year. Wonder why they were deleted? Lots of snow out there yet. Will go back out in a few days or a week and try agian. I am positive Alma Allen is right there by Lucy, but under snow and ice yet.

Find A Grave Correction: Thomas Sharples
I added the family links for Thomas Sharples that you requested. I also posted a photograph of his marker that I had. Someone had already posted a photo of his wife, Mary's marker. Thomas and Mary are on two sides of the same stone.

Elizabeth A. Turnbull Conger
I have found Elizabeth's father, James D. Turnbull, in the 1885 census in Minnesota as well as his wife Lucy Alma. They apparently lived with their daughter,
Alma Allen, until their deaths. Lucy Alma Randall Turnbull died October 10, 1894 and I still see James in the 1905 census in Minnesota with his daughter. Have not found his death record yet.

Just thought you would like more info.

RE: Frank and Matilda Poast
Hi, I rechecked the cemetery records and noticed that I had entered the grave information wrong for Francis (so very sorry). I corrected it -- he is buried in Section J, Lot 46, Grave 3. His son Edson is buried next to him in Grave 2. You may want to do a photo request for Edson and put a note in to check for Frank.

There is no record for Matilda. I don't know where she is buried. I'm not related to the Poast family. If you are, I'd be happy to transfer them to you.

RE: James and Elizabeth Baillie
Are you a descendant of them? I am related through the Easton family. Elizabeth's Uncle George Easton is my ancestor.
Here is some additional info on this family. If you like more do contact me at
ELIZABETH EASTON b. Nov 5, 1837 (Watson's Corners, ON) d. Jan 18, 1906 (Loup City, Sherman Co., Nebraska)

m. Dec 30, 1864 (Dalhousie Twp., Lanark Co., ON) --or Dec 24, 1862

JAMES LAWSON BAILLIE b. Oct 21, 1839 (Lanark Co., Scot.) d. Jan 11, 1920 (Hay Springs, Sheridan Co., NE) --80 yrs

Elizabeth was the 9th child of Thomas & Mary (Chalmers) Easton, of Watson's Corners, Dalhousie Twp., On.

James was a son of Wm. & Janet (Lawson) Baillie, of Dalhousie Twp, who came to Lanark Co., On in 1862.

According to Eugene Baillie, "William and Janet came over on a Cunard ship (their son Alexander was working as a cook/baker on the ship). He then left the employment of the ship when they arrived in Nova Scotia and accompanied them into Canada, and likely they arrived in Ontario at a different time than James".

James was born in Carnworth Parish, Lanark, Scotland. His parents were married there on Dec 24, 1835.

In about 1867, James & Elizabeth moved to Osakis, Minnesota.

They were listed in the 1870 Osakis, Gordon Twp., Todd Co, MN Census

After a few years there, they moved to Nebraska around 1876, where James' parent & brother Alex had settled in 1870.

They homesteaded in Loup Valley, Sherman Co., NE.

According to James Reid's Diary notation for Mar 1879: (James was married to Elizabeth's older sister Mary)

"Received a letter from James Baillie, Nebraska , US, today. His family is all well."

They are listed in the 1880 Upper Loup, Sherman Co., NE census.

James was a farmer, born in Scotland, Elizabeth was b. Canada, with their 5 children.

He returned for his mother-in-Law's funeral in 1906, and acted as a pallbearer.

According to the Hood's News in the Lanark Era, Sept 26, 1906:

"Mr. James Baillie of Nebraska, visited his many friends & old aquaintances here recently."

The Lanark Era, Wed Feb 11, 1920, reports James' death:

"Hay Springs, Nebraska, Sun. Jan 11th, 1920 James L. Baillie, aged 80 years, 2 mos, & 22 days. He was born in Lanarkshire, Scotland, Oct 21st, 1839 and emigrated to Lanark Co. in 1862. he married on Dec 24, 1862 to Elizabeth Easton and later moved to Todd County, MN. In 1876 the family moved to Loup City, Nebraska, where he homesteaded in Loup Valley. They had a family of 4 sons & 4 daughters. Those remaining are Wm. L. Baillie, Plymouth, England; Thomas and Mrs. Ellen Rightenour of Fremont; Mrs. Jessie Fisher of Loup City and Mrs. George Benschoter of Hay Springs. His wife died on Jan 18th, 1906. Burial in the Family Cemetery on the homestead in Loup Valley."

They are buried in the family plot in the Evergreen cemetery, Loup City, Sherman Co., NE.

Elizabeth had 1 child before marrying James: Alexander

James & Elizabeth had 7 children: Wm., Mary, Jessie, Thomas "Wilson", Ellen, male, & female

6 ALEXANDER CHALMERS EASTON b. Mar 23, 1860 (Dalhousie) d.
