RE: John Swilling
Well, there are a couple of books about him. And isn't there a statue in Phoenix? That seems like enough to make him famous.

Hope you are successful in getting recognition for him.

RE: John Swilling
You're quite welcome. It's the least I could do for my GG-Uncle.

Are you related as well? His sister Harriet was my GG grandmother

RE: Lucinda Getsinger Green Lambeth
Thanks for the reply, it is appreciated. I worked on these people, and only these, ALL day yesterday until I was literally cross-eyed, hah! Your info concurs with what I found.

3 things I did not find: (1) these women in a census together with family to show they were sisters (2) the marriage between Lucinda & Mr. Lambeth (3) the DC for Lucinda .... and I looked by any conceivable name I could think of, and cross referenced, etc, still nothing. IF she died in 1952 as you have her then she logically "should" have a DC. She either died under another married name or out of state, or her DC is so poorly transcribed that we are overlooking it somehow.

I'm interested in her because I'm still getting requests from other folks to link her to family members, which I cannot do as long as she's shown as "burial unknown".

I guess the search continues ......

Rich Garrett
Henry Andrew Thomas
Thanks for the Biography. I have one small addition/typo correction. When you talk about Henry leaving the railroad in 1885 he went to the Fort Worth Detective Agency. My suggestion is to add "Detective Agency" after Fort Worth.

RE: 3 Memorials
The Ramsey threw me. I am racking my brain- Henry Andrew THOMAS was the one I wrote about- but I am supposing the answer is the same-since I saw the rating at the bottom, but it still said it was managed by YOU- not findagrave. Heck THOMAS.

RE: Nora Johnson
I've transferred to you, but the next time you would like a transfer from someone, please use the Edit tab on the memorial (Suggest a Correction). Leaving a message takes the manager several extra steps to find the memorial, find your contributor number, and go back to the memorial. thanks
