Note: I have no-way of deleting Gabby Find A Grave memorials. Even despite when she created so-many mistakes. Out of my Control. Find A Grave Admin doesn't respond to my Requests or emails either! This is all I can do... Need your help
RE: Rathwells @ Millbrook Finally got back out there to take photo of grave of my daughter-in-law's great-grandfather! (very close, plot 18) I sent you message & posted under stone's photo, but better spot to add information is in actual burial record - click on 'Add Plot'. Burial: [Edit] Millbrook Cemetery Manitoba, Canada [Add Plot]
Pierce Walton Obituary from the Junction City Daily Union dated 23 Oct 1917: Pierce Walton, a veteran of the Civil War, died at his home early Sunday morning. Mr. Walton was born in Lafayette (Allen County), Ohio, in 1840, and in his early boyhood moved to Iowa, where he was united in marriage to Mrs. Louisa C[lementine] [(Ramsey)] Holland in the year 1866. From there he moved to Kansas in 1877. He had lived in Geary County as a farmer until about 14 years ago when he moved to this city, where he resided until his death on Oct. 21, 1917. His wife, seven children and two step-children survive him. They are: Henry, Ensign, Kans; William, Neosho Falls, Kans; Effie Haney, Elkhart, Kans.; Covia Tibbitts, Salina, Kans.; Ida A. Fritz, James J. and Fred, of Junction City, Kans.; James Holland, Ensign, Kansas., and Addie Fisher of Paola, Kans. All the children are here for the funeral.
I have a copy of Pierce's Declaration for Pension, which states he was born 10 Dec. 1840, Allen County, Ohio, so this differs a little from the tombstone date.
I also have a copy of James Holland's Civil War pension file. He was Louisa Clementine Ramsey's first husband, who died during the Civil War and is buried at Port Hudson, Louisiana. Two children survived the marriage of James Holland and Louisa Clementine (Ramsey) Holland Walton: Mary Adeline (Holland) Wells Fisher, who is buried in the Paola Cemetery, Paola, Kansas, and James Eli Francis Holland, who is buried in the Johnson Cemetery, Ensign, Kansas.
I was not aware of an infant death in Iowa, so please forward any information you have on that little one to me at: DebraDeForest@comcast.net. James and Louisa Holland were my step-dad's great-grandparents. Thank you.
