RE: William Wallace Lee
I double checked and the paper DID show R.W. - but these papers very frequently messed up spellings of names etc. If you have knowledge that R.W. wasn't his middle initial put in brackets - [sic] behind the initials. Thank you so much for posting this old small obit.

Thank you
From Steph (#47229309), Thank you for the correction you suggested for my Alva McCollum. This isn't the first time the similarity in names has resulted in the wrong information to be associated with a deceased person. Since you have a new memorial for Alva E. I have changed mine to Alva A. Until I can get the links changed over to the other one. Then I will delete mine. It is important to be accurate so I thank you.

RE: Bonnie Lucille Osmon Callaway

Thank you so much for all of your hard work in recording the family tree.

Yes, Ralph has 4 daughters. I am the third, named after my grandmother Bonnie. She passed away when I was 13. She was a wonderful Grandmother and taken from us at such an early age.

I remember going to the Osmon family reunions when I was younger and remember names, but not faces.

It would be nice to have the family information to pass on to my son if you have the time.

Thank you again for taking your time to create the information.

RE: Bonnie Lucille Osmon Callaway
Thank you for your reply.

Who was your Grandfather?

I am new to this and not sure how to manage the site. I just noticed that my Dad was missing from Grandma's children. He was the first born. He and his brother Gene were only 18 months apart and both are still living here in Arizona. What an amazing family! I am grateful to you for making this available. I would be happy to add Dad's name if you would prefer I do so. Please let me know how I would add him.

Thank you for your time and it is nice to meet a cousin via the internet.

Della Pinkstaff
Della and Stella, twins
After Della's mother died, her father took the twin girls, their sisters and brothers to the Children's Home, 31 Jul 1901 in Des Moines, Iowa., age 7, The twin girls were legally adopted in Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa by John and Lizzie (Elizabeth) Louise Folkers. Lizzie's actual name is Lizzie, not Elizabeth, even though it may be seen written that way in several places.
Adoption registered in Plymouth County, 2 October 1902 by John and Lizzie (Elizabeth) Louis Folkers. Lizzie signed their adoption papers as Lizzie Louis Folkers
The twins were about 8 years & 10 months old at time of legal adoption.

They named the girls Della Ann, and Stella Lizzie Folkers

Their birth parents are:
W.J.N. Matthews (9 Nov 1849 IA - 21 Nov 1905 IA)
Caroline Neff Matthews(14 Oct 1851 Lawrence Co IL - 1 Dec 1900 IA)
Caroline had been very ill for about 1.5 years before she died.
Mr. Matthews d. 4-5 years after the children were put in the home. Apparently he was not very well either.

The confusion over the twin girls birthdate is... on the 1900 Census, whoever gave the information to the census taker gave incorrect information for the whole family of children. The twins were actually born 11 January 1894, Jefferson County, Iowa. But, when Della applied for social security, this census was the only proof of her age, so she went with the 1895 to receive social security.

Stella had a list of these Matthews children's birth dates, which I was able to gain a copy from Stella's oldest daughter, hand written by Stella.
Sincerely, granddaughter of Stella. Jan Camp
I have doing genealogy since 1969.

RE: Cinema Favorites
NL, For a long time I didn't know what my type was in men and then I realised it was their voice I was attracted to(Ronald Colman, David Niven) Same way with movies I finally realised it was dialogue and characters. I like a lot of movies that were first plays: From the 1933 classic Dinner at Eight to the not well known 1963 Mary Mary (play by Jean Kerr). Also books, I read the book Mrs. Miniver, before I saw the film version.
I will bow to your auteur knowledge. I went to a cinema art house in Manhattan in my twenties and watched Ingmar Bergman films--no more of those for me. Stanley Kubrick, the same! Life is too short to pay for misery.
There are some films I love just for a dance sequence--when Fred Astaire bursts through the paper heart or dances with firecrackers in Holiday Inn. I like one film mostly for the interior sets, How to Murder Your Wife with Jack Lemmon.
I totally agree that most memorials could use longer and better bios. I am not a Star fan but have read a lot of biographies.
So many films, so much to say. I'll ponder a list. It's nice to converse with another early film fan.

RE: Cinema Favorites
Dear NL, This is gonna be fun. You have Douglas Sirk but you don't have Delmer Daves mem#11351
You don't have S.Z.Sakall mem#3719 I loved him in Christmas in Connecticut. Confession, one of my all time favorite movies is Random Harvest with Ronald Colman mem#214 and Greer Garson mem#2465. Of course, everyone has their favourites for who knows what reason. I tried once to list all the movies made in 1939 but just gave up--tremendous year. Let me know what you think of the above and some of your favorite movies. Lily

I like to check out the members who I send edits to, sent an edit for Bertha (Baldwin) Osmon to add her parents. What a treasure trove I found in your Cinema virtual cemetery! It was like an advanced class in Turner Classic Movies. I found several of my lesser heralded favorites, such as Thelma Ritter and Marjorie Main. Thanks, it was fun. Lily

Dele Elder's Grave Found
Dele Elder was my 3rd Great-grandfather. I have the following grave information and photos for Dele Elder and Elizabeth D. Elder, who may have been Dele's daughter. I have added the two photos. Feel free to add this info to Dele's Memorial page. Thank you for all of your work! I really appreciate it.

Don Howard (has interest in Dele Elder family and has done some research) sent the following email to me, 12/14/2014: "It occurred to me that you probably donít know about the discovery of Dele Elderís grave in Dearborn County, IN a few years ago. It was found along with a couple of others when a health clinic was preparing an expansion. It would appear that itís on the land originally purchased by Dele when he first moved to Dearborn County. Attached are two Elder photographs, including Deleís own. Art Wentzel, who first surveyed the site, thinks that this Elizabeth Elder was Charles D. Elderís wife. But I suspect that sheís actually a heretofore unknown daughter of Dele and Sarahís."
Don sent a picture of the two Elder gravestones. Dele's stone reads: "In memory of DELE ELDER, Esq. who died April 23d 1829, in the 56th year of his age". He was born about 1772-1773.
Elizabeth's reads: "IN Memory of ELIZABETH D ELDER who died Oct. 15th 1828 in the 22d year of her age."

If this Susan married Joshua Casey in 1824 she would have been 10 yrs old

The marriage record I found on family search for Joshua said Sucky - which could be a nickname but 10 yrs old ??

That infomation that I placed on the memorial was from the grave stone. If the spelling is different on the death certificate, I wouldn't know which is the correct spelling. I listed it from the info on the stone.

RE: May Bell Sales Parks
What you described was rather hard to follow. I am sure you knew well what you meant.
I did some checking on for files trying to figure it out what it is you were saying about your tree.
You said that Susannah DeMint's brother married a Haines. According to and Find A Grave, Susannah had two brothers and neither of them married anyone named Haines that I could find.

You sent some edits on M.B. Parks. When I made that page I guess I was not sure what the first name was and did not want to mess it up.
With what you sent I see now who she was for sure. I found a death notice in the paper for her. She died Feb. 15th, not the 21st. I don't know where you got the 21st from??
I corrected her page to read the 25th.
I can send you the death notice if you like. It has all her surviving children listed.

Tree Climber
Mary Jane 'Ina' McGinnis
I believe her grave is to be found at Find A Grave Memorial# 30730626. She is on the 1930 Census, with her son Hubert L Allen, as the wife of Thomas W Lafferty (whose previos wife died in 1927). There is a Florida Marriage Record showing Thomas Lafferty married in 1928. Thomas is buried beside his 1st wife, but Mary M Lafferty is buried in the same cemetery.

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Cemetery located in Weston Twp., Platte Co., MO., but not sure how close to town of Weston. It should not be confused with the Miller-Rixey Cemetery, which is in another township and near the Kansas City International Airport.

Am interested I live nearby would like more directions to find it. Can you tell me what road or hiway?
