Kirkwood grave The grave you have as Jonathan Clyde "John" Bivens is actually the grave of John Clement Bivens the son of Andrew Jackson Bivens and Susan McBride Bivens. They arrived in this area in 1862. Andrew was the son of Israel Bivens of Indiana. Calvin Bivens
I'd be glad to manage the memorial. On the main page, in the upper right are three prompts: [transfer management], , and [delete]. Just click on the transfer, put my member number #47486088 in the blank, and click. That's all it takes.
I hope your move goes well, and best wishes for you in the medical procedures.
Nathaniel Bivens Sr. Hello again. On your memorial #143838250 for Nathaniel I see the birth date of 1740. May I ask you what is the source for that date? You also show a son for him, Jonathan Bivens, 1807-1865. My records show this Jonathan is Nathaniel's grandson, the son of Elijah S. Bivens and his wife, Katherine. I'm not saying you're wrong, just wondering how you arrived at this. I'm always looking for primary sources. Thanks.
I see in your Bivens virtual cemetery that Robert N. Bivens is your 2nd great grand uncle. That means his father, Nathaniel Bivens Jr. is your 3rd great grandfather. His brother John is my 4th great grandfather, which I think makes us 5th cousins once removed. I also have Fickes in my tree, the most recent being Rebecca Fickes Wentz (1740-82), my 4th great grandmother.
RE: Great Great Aunt Edna Duhigg Gard Hi Patsy, my name is Larry Black and Edna was my wife Melva's grandmother. My wife passed away last year and her 2 sisters do not want me to relinquish her site to anyone. You can put up any family history and link to it on the site that you wish. I have the picture that you are speaking of and that is the only picture of her that was in existence that we could find. I will be glad to help you in any way I can. Thank You! Larry Black, Belton, Mo.
Amos Betchel photo request I have taken photos of Amos Betchel's stone at Pleasant Hill. The stone has toppled off its base and 'was' lying embedded in the ground. It apparently has been that way for a while. I rolled the stone over on its side to make sure that it was Amos' stone.
I can post my photos on his memorial, but it will not be a good representation of what his stone really looks like. I was able to roll the stone over, but it was much too heavy for me to pick up by myself and place it back on its base.
Someone who oversees the cemetery should be able to do this, but it would need to be reported. I'm not sure who is in charge of Pleasant Hill. I am waiting for the courthouse in Harrison county to get back to me. Hopefully they can furnish a name of the caretaker for the cemetery.
Please let me know if you still want me to post the photos.
