Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about 15 years, and I love sharing the information that I have. That is why when you look up individuals that I have added, you will find more than birth and death information.

I have tried my best to get the right information listed on any memorials, that I have added to this site, but if you should see a mistake, or if I have submitted a memorial that you want to add corrections or a bio to, please let me know.

Transfers of all my non-relatives to you if they are related to you, upon a "polite" request.

Chester Ainsworth
Hello again

I'll just make this easy for you: Please add this one to the memorial instead. And feel freee to edit it any way you like.




Chester L. Ainsowrth was a constable in Cochise County, Arizona, who was killed in a little-known gunfight near Tombstone on April 7, 1899. That day Ainsworth and a depurty named "Teddy" Moore rode out to the old Wilson Ranch to arrest two brothers named William Thomas Halderman for cattle rustling. When the two men arrived at the ranch house they told the boys to have breakfast and pack their stuff for a stay in Pearce. However, the boys grabbed their rifles instead and took up positions at the front of the house. It is not known who fired the first shots, but in the brief exchange of gunfire that followed, Ainsworth was shot off his horse and killed instantly, while Moore was mortally wounded. The Haldermans then mounted their horses and fled across the border to New Mexico Territory, but were captured and brought back to Arizona soon after. On November 16, 1900, both were hanged in Tombstone after a "hasty" trial in the Old Cochise County Courthouse and buried in the Boothill Graveyard, near the victims of the Gunfight at the OK Corral. Ainsworth's remains were taken back to his family in Michigan for burial.

Avondale Cemetery, Flint, MI
Hello,
I live in Connecticut, and I am a volunteer helping to locate and document the graves of Vermont Civil War soldiers ... www.vermontcivilwar.org. I was recently in Michigan documenting our guys, but I did not make it to Avondale Cemetery. We have three soldiers with ties to Vermont at this cemetery, and you have photographed all 3 of them! Would you consider allowing us to post the photos for these three gentlemen on the Vermont Civil War website? We are all volunteers ... no one makes any money on this project. You would receive photo credit. The 3 guys are: Edgar M. Billings, Almon Eggleston, John Faxon Wilcox. Please let me know ... no hard feelings if you decline!

I noticed you have listed the above in Mount Olive Cemetery and they are listed by someone else in Mount Cemetery. How do I know which is correct? Irene Walls Barrett
