RE: Harlan Shean
thanks! I am not a descendant but still find this family story very interesting - maybe someday you will be able to fill the unknowns.

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 Ancestry.com 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 Ancestry.com and Find A Grave, Susannah had two brothers and neither of them married anyone named Haines that I could find.

Hi,
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.

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.

New Miller Cem.
Weston

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?
Thanks

RE: Emma Mae (Wineman) Weger
Hi again:
I looked at Emma's page on Find a Grave and find that in addition to Florence Mae Weger (missing), There is also Cecil Glenn Weger, b. 27 Apr 1903 and died 4 Jan 1974. He is buried in Jones Cemetery as well.

There were a total of 9 children in the Charles and Emma Wineman Weger family.

RE: Emma Mae (Wineman) Weger
Hi: Thanks so much for replying to my message.
First, Florence "Flossie" Mae Sullivan was married to Harry Earl Sullivan on 25 Sep 1918 and after Harry died she did not remarry. She spent most of her life in Lakeland, Florida and she died in Lakeland, but I do not know the cemetery, but I know it was in Florida, I have to do more research on that.
Second, Zada Charlene Weger was married 3 times, (1) Royal Waldo Lindsay on 20 Oct 1927, buried in the Lawrenceville City Cemetery.
(2) Garner Clay Sbodgrass, md. 6 April 1992, divorced 18 Jul 1994, Hernando, FL
(3) David Wilbur Hughes, married 27 July 1999, Hernando Co., Fl.
Charlene was buried in the Lawrenceville City Cemetery under the name Charlene L. Hughes. She died Dec 2005, Brooksville, FL
Third: There was never a Emma born in 1906. I think that was a confusion with Guy O'Brien, (also I don't know where the middle initial of Guy as M ever came up. Mother always said he was Guy O'Brien Weger. Guy was born 9 Oct 1906 in Honey Creek Twp., Crawford Co. IL and died on 1 Jan 1907, Honey Creek Twp. He is buried in Good Hope Cemetery, Flat Rock. He died with pneumonia.
Forth: Audrey Blanche Weger was born 17 Nov 1895, Honey Cr. Twp. and died 24 Apr 1897, Honey Creek Twp. She is buried in Good Hope Cemetery, Flat Rock, IL, died with pneumonia.

I hope this will help you, but I am pretty sure what I have written is correct. Contact me again if you need more information.
Thanks, Kay Crews Grenda

RE: George Hull
Another clue to this is, after finding Charlotte's marriage to Abraham Waters, I started looking into their family. In the 1930 Census Honey Creek, Crawford Co. IL. I found George Hull 80, living with Romeo and Clarice Waters. He is listed as a Half Brother. So far everything I have found,the dates line up for Alexander and Harriet both being children of Charlotte Bird. Also in the 1860 Concord, DeKalb Co., Indiana Census Orange and Harriet Hull are living next door to Abraham and Charlotte.

George Hull
You mentioned that he was also called "Zan Bird". In the 1850 Census there is an Alexander Bird 9 years old living with Charlotte Bird and her parents, John and Rebecca Bird in De Kalb Co., IN. I believe this is Zan Bird. There is also a Harriet Bird 6 years old living with this same family, and later a Harriet Jane Waters born 1844, married Orange Timothy Hull. Charolotte married Abraham Waters ca. 1858. Harriet Hull is buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Bridgeport, Lawrence Co., Illinois.
