Thornton Ford and Marie M Ford
Thornton and "Marie" are my Great Grandparents and it should be noted that while her name on the tombstone says Marie, her name was actually Isa she just didn't like that name, her full name was Isa Marie Menders Ford.

RE: James Murray
Hi Tori,
I am definitely fishing to see if James is there and will delete his memorial if he isn't on her memorial. Logic tells me since she lived all over with her children since his death in 1877, that she went BACK to Illinois to be buried with her husband. She also has a son who died in PA who is buried in that cemetery. Thanks for your help. Jill MacRae

RE: Manerva Adcox
I added the photos. Curious about the spelling of the last name - did it get changed from one generation to the next? I know that happens.

I needed to get out and walking after this horid winter. My family cemeteries are too far away, so I kind of adopted Oakland and Rosedale, since it's only a few blocks from my house. I've been trying to get as many photographed as have memorials.

I have corresponded with some very interesting people along the way. Lots of history in Oakland.

RE: Manerva Adcox
Thanks Tori! I also found James Robert Adcock 1863-1934 and Charlotte A. Adcock 1854-1946 in the same family plot. I assume siblings of Manerva. If you want to add them, I'll add photos.

Thanks for all the work you do on find a grave!

RE: Memorial# 93449638
Hi Tory,
Before you do any research can you contact me thru my private email?

I want to explain some of the mystery and how it is being slowing solved.

Memorial# 93449638
Hi Tori,
I have a question on Memorial #93449638, Sarah E. Thomas. She was born 19 Dec 1885 died 15 Apr 1895.

I can see the initials J. R. & ??
J. R. would be James Riles Thomas.
?? could be the Harriet Jane Goodwin Thomas that I told you to connect to Sarah.

However, a MC for James & Harriet that I obtained recently has them getting married in 1892. That means he was still married to his first wife, Emma S. Lefter Thomas in 1885.

When you took that photo were you able to make out any of the lettering that would be the wife's initials?

I have been untangling this family one small step and a time.

Don't change any information until we know what it says after the "J. R. &".

Tori, what a beautiful stone that Sam has. Thank you for taking this photo and posting the memorial. I wasn't certain when he was moved from Ohio (after his death) exactly where he was buried.

RE: John William Thomas
Thanks Tori. I do appreciate it.

I am still hunting for all of my Thomas'.

RE: Wright/Palmer
You're welcome! I was wondering if you had any information on John Wright son of Ellis Wright? My great great grandfather is John Wright buried in Warm Springs Cemetery. I have been trying to prove the link between him and Ellis. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you, James and Tina

You have a headstone picture on my father's memorial 51467881 Paul Winkler and I have now added an updated one since my mother has died and her date of death has been added to the stone. Can you remove your picture?

Thank you

RE: Minerva Hendricks
You're very welcome. You may feel like shaking me after this, but could you go back one more time? You accidently spelled it Hooper and it's Hopper. You can see how this happened in records lol..her mother's maiden name was spelled every which way under the sun! Ditto about the corrections-I welcome them as well and if you see anything that needs updated in my memorials please let me know. Thanks for all of your work on F-G~Laura.

RE: Sarah Thomas
Hi Tori,
After working all day on the Thomas Family I noticed that on all of the pages. However, I had already emailed you. Thanks for the explanation and for the transfer of Sarah.

I am going to have to head to Douglas County soon to visit the courthouse for records.

Love researching my family.

id 114140618. I just found husband Grover Cleveland Bender 50482173 in Clear Creek Cemetery, Monroe, IN. Double headstone, but no year of death engraved on it for Ella. Just wondering how sure you are that she is buried in Newman. I cannot locate a phone # for Newman Cemetery, or I would call them. Thanks!
