RE: transfers
Always a pleasure to know that someone has benefited from a grave I've entered. I hurriedly photographed about 1200 stones in that cemetery this autumn up until literally the first winter snow flakes started coming down, and I will be entering the records all winter.

Interestingly, I filled a photo request this autumn for another Adonirum Judson, in this case a Westbury, a Confederate Army vet who had come from Georgia via Wisconsin and the Dakotas. His grandson, Howard Judson Westbury, lived just five doors down from my family in the 1960's and I was in his house often. A.J. Westbury lies buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, just across the street from Mount Pleasant Burial park here in town.

If A.J. Church homesteaded in the Success area, then it is quite possible that he knew Urban Betson, the second husband of my father's maternal grandmother. Urban also homesteaded in the Success area.

Have you located A.J. Church's homestead file at FamilySearch? I have tracked it down and I've uploaded to his Find-a-Grave memorial a handwritten letter, dated 1915, from A.J. to the Department of the Interior.
The link below should take you to the first page of the homestead file. The little box with arrows and a number indicate page numbers within the master file of scanned files. Click on the arrows and you can browse through the file. I may download this file in its entirety in which case I could email it to you. Please drop me a line at livius30@yahoo.ca. This files can be quite informative.

There is also a history of the Success district that was published in the 1980's. My father has a copy and I will consult it next time I'm over there and see if there is an entry for A.J. If so I will scan it and would be happy to send it to you.

Take care, and all the best for the holidays.

It looks as though there is a Francis X. Bayer that is also buried in plot #57. I will add him and transfer to your care.
