Hi - this photo is from the Shrewsbury Historical Society. Unfortunately, the cemetery is in disrepair & in the woods on private property, so I hope this photo is ok with you. Nancy in VT

Hello: I apologize for not getting a photo of the gravestone sooner. The cemetery is in the woods, on private property & is, unfortunately, overgrown with brush. The photo was obtained from Shrewsbury Historical Society, rather than going to the cemetery. Nancy in VT

Donna,

I apologize for the message that went out before I could write it. I see that you have Thomas McDonald, Elizabeth's husband and another direct ancestor of mine. I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer it. If so, let me know, and I will delete my memorial.

Thank you for letting me know the correct location of Elizabeth's grave. Per your suggestion, I have deleted my memorial, and I would very much appreciate a transfer of the memorial for her that you created. My member # is 46799418.

I read the reported problem and the obit that said that they were buried at Giltner Cemetery. So I looked very carefully, walking the cemetery twice. Did not find them. I entered photos of Chelsey's marker and you can see that there is a lot of space around him. Are they buried there? I also checked the other cemeteries with Giltner addresses. Nothing there with this Taylor link. Sorry.

Hi Donna

Transcription for James Ayers' stone:

In affectionate remembrance of George Francis, the beloved son of Samuel & Martha Francis, who died Aug 9 1874 aged 15 years

also of James C Ayers, the faithful companion of the above and beloved son of William & Elizabeth Ayers, who died on board the smack Lily of Gorleston, Jan 31 1875 in his 18th year

Very sad that such close friends both died so young and within such a short time of each other!

RE: James H Strobridge
Donna,

I tend to think he did serve otherwise his name would not have been listed in the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, 89th Division. If he wouldn't have been drafted, it would have never appeared in the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, 89th Division. It seems the coincidences are too strong.

I always love it when a gravestone has it stamped right on it what unit in which they served. If it doesn't things get tricky.

If you ever find conclusively that he was in Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division, please let me know.

I'm in Denver by the way, and you?

Regards,

Bryan

RE: James H Strobridge
Donna,

There is no date from the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, 89th Division. It only says:

Strobridge, James H., Haigler, Nebr., B.



I see from Google Maps that Haigler, Nebraska and Benkelman, Nebraska are only 25 minutes apart, by car. Generally, I think that's a pretty strong relationship. To have a unique name like that and only be a few miles apart is a pretty strong link that they are one and the same individual, but I can't be sure...

Again, thank you for your efforts!

Here's what Findagrave has for James Harvey Strobridge,

Birth: Jan. 23, 1895
Benkelman
Dundy County
Nebraska, USA

Death: Jan. 21, 1972
Torrance
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Thank you for your efforts!

I suppose it's very possible the History and Roster of the 355th is incorrect. I'm of the opinion James H. Strobridge served in the 355th, but the Company could very well be incorrect. It wouldn't be the first time.

RE: James H Strobridge
Donna,

Thank you for your reply.

I see from the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, 89th Division, on page 130, James H. Strobridge is listed as having served in Company B.

In this book, he is listed as being from Haigler, Nebraska, which is only a few miles from Benkelman, Nebraska, so I am inclined to think this is the same person. Also, numerous Nebraskans from this area served in this infantry unit.

His findagrave.com memorial number is 72147994, where I see he was born in Nebraska. It seems to be the same person, but I'd like a little more confidence in my identification and confirm whether he did indeed serve in Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. It looks good, but not great.

Anything you can do to confirm he was part of this unit would be greatly appreciated as every little bit helps me paint a more accurate picture of this military unit.

Regards,

James H Strobridge
Hello,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, 89th Division, James H Strobridge was a member of this unit, at least for a time.

Do you know whether your James H. Strobridge was a part of this unit?

Thank you, I appreciate your time. Any little bit of information paints a little clearer picture of this unit.

Regards,


Bryan Anderson

My husband and I were in Arthur for a running event and I looked up the cemetery there to see if photos were needed. I was able to get 6 of the 8 requests done. It's a nice feeling to help others. Glad to be of assistance.

TY , I added your note to the memorial in Newport rather than delete since it is listed in transcription and will point others to the correct burial location rather than someone in the future re-entering them in Newport.
