Tom, most of the Stationary engineer jobs were men not working on the railroad. THis kind of an engineer usually watched Boilers for some companies and were never employed with the railroad. But there were a few that fed the railroad Boilers. thanks Mike

|M. A. Claxton||Donham family|
Yes, it has been a most interesting trek through this family, having started with a Divine connection and finding others in the Donham family when we got to Bethlehem Cemetery. We plan to go back the last of this month - going on a vacation and decided to include the cemeteries in Dade and Barton counties in MO again as we have found other burials that we need to look for. Always exciting to locate family - even distant ones - and get them recorded so they are not lost.

THANK YOU, Tom, for this addition to my police memorials! I was able to locate his death certificate which was actually under David Alonzo; I imagine he went by David, hence the difference in headstone and death certificate listing. I sent the updating info to the controlling contributor for "David's" memorial.

You are the person that posted memorial# 70615845, so I have to share this with you. I was just watching Antiques Road Show, it just happened to be in Kansas City. A man brought in an old firemans badge. He said he bought it at a yard sale when he was a young boy. The appraiser checked it out, and read the presentation on the back of the badge. I caught the name George Hale. He appraised the badge between $10,000.00 to $15,000.00 It was 14 carrot gold with enamel inlay, and was in "perfect" condition. Plus the presentation on the back added to the value...Someone posted a picture on his Find A Grave memorial, and he is wearing the very badge in the picture, large in the center of his chest. I did a little digging. He never had children, so it ended up in a yard sale...I just thought it was interesting. Hope I didn't bore you...Linda

|M. A. Claxton||Martha's memorial|
Yes, I did remember - after looking around to see why I was looking for her in the first place!!! I have done work on so many genealogies lately - several not my own - and they have run together. I just checked the location of the cemetery in MO and I think my husband and I will try to get there next week. If she has a stone, we will find it. But there are several members in the Divine family who are buried there as well, so we will be looking for those also.
Thank you for all your work!

Thank you so much for transferring Martha Bagby Donham's memorial to my care. I will get the connections for the children made and hopefully, someday, get a picture of a stone for her.

|rbkingjr||RE: Linking two more people|
Thanks for letting me know. I saw that you had so many years with find-a-grave and one of the headstones was yours so I thought that I should ask you. Anyway thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
Added by rbkingjr on Mar 08, 2014 8:36 PM
I just noticed today that you posted the headstone for my Great Grandfather, Milton Rhodes, at Forest Lawn Cemetery on Troost. Thanks so much! I didn't realize that he had a headstone. Did you photograph any additional headstones in that cemetery? I'm looking for his second wife, Katherine Bethune Rhodes. Or "Kate"
Thanks for all the work you do for findagrave.
Have a great weekend!
