I've checked my files and found David Marion Brecount and Bessie Norrish marriage license, in which he signed it as David Marion Brecount. The form also states that David's father was Clark Brecount and his mother was Mary Emmons. Bessie Norrish's father was Peter Norrish and her mother was Elizabeth Lahman.
The date was 25 May 1905.
The Reverend Benedict was listed as the person who would solemnize the marriage. From subsequent death records, we were able to determine that Rev. Benedict served as the pastor of the Glendale, Ohio Episcopal Church.
David Marion Brecount was my grandfather, so my first source was from my own father David Daniel Brecount. I will have to check through numerous files on the Brecounts to see if I have a document that also proves that the "M" stands for Marion.
Charles Lemur Wells Could this be PVT Charles L. Wells who died Feb. 14, 1916 at Santa Monica, CA. He was a PVT in Co. A, 29th Regt. Indiana Infantry during the Civil War. If so, a photo of his grave and a note in his biography would be appreciated on this the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War.
RE: George Smalley 71059986 In theory, it doesn't sound like a bad idea, but maybe you can try putting that in a "flower" instead. You always have the power to delete your own flowers. And maybe use UPPER case so it stands out.
George Smalley Hey Susan, check out the bio that is on the person's memorial. It says that the memorial is a dupe and will be deleted, but it was not deleted and there is no other memorial for him in G.H.
Since someone else now controls that memorial, maybe you should ask that person to remove the info from the bio section, since they have linked the info back to you.
Catherine June Nelson Davies Thank you for accepting my edits to Catherine's memorial! Her first husband, Regis James Bodecker, memorial# 29296215, was killed in action at Pearl Harbor. He was a 24 year old Navy officer, Yeoman 1C USN. He was interred in the Gettysburg National Cemetery, in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on Nov. 7th, 1947. I don't know the year of their marriage, but I do know they had a daughter, Marian A. Bodecker Olverholser Reese, born March 19th, 1938, in Los Angeles County, California. I believe she is still living. Catherine married again, of course, because her last name is became Davies. I'll put through an edit request to link her to her first husband, but I have searched thoroughly and cannot find the name of her second husband with last name Davies. I'm sure she, and her descendants, would want him linked with her too. I'll keep trying! She is my husband's cousin twice removed. His great-grandmother Grace Nelson had a brother Frank Nelson, and Catherine was his daughter. Thank you so much for your work. The findagrave community are the best people, it is so wonderful to find these things and honor their memories for generations to come!
