Sarah Davis Hawkins I'm searching for a copy of the "Life of Sarah Davis Hawkins" written by Wilma Stolworthy Hawkins. Do you have one that you are willing to provide, or do you know where I can find it?
carrington gravemarker greetings....I went to he location today and I could not find a marker. In July of 2001, there was a marker as I recorded it during a transcription of cemetery markers I was doing. Please call Darlene Billstrom at the Pacific Grove Cemetery office and ask her to have the groundsperson uncover it...deeply buried under dirt and grass. Her contact number is (831) 648-3100...call after 9m Pacific time and before noon Pacific Time as she works part-time only. let me know if you'd like a photo of the location where her marker should be. Best of luck!
Bertha O'Neill Photo Request There is only one Bertha O'Neill listed in the cemetery index for St. Joseph Cemetery in Council Bluffs, and her dates are 1901-1940. I believe she may have been the wife of Robert O'Neill 1895-1972. In the same family plot there is a John M. O'Neill 1861-1921 that may have been the husband of your Bertha (from census records). I made the memorials and will post the photos when I have time later.
RE: Charlotte Snow As I suspected there is no marker for this grave at all. I uploaded a photo of the area, but nothing confirms that this is Charlotte as you believe and not Charles. You may wish to contact the cemetery office to look into that if, in fact it is that large of a typographical error. Heaven knows I come across a lot of errors in dates and spellings of names. The can go back and reference the opening ticket, which is filled out by the family at the time arrangements are made for burial and verify if the grave is for Charles or Charlotte.
I noticed you had a photo request for Henry in the Marysville Cemetery, the request is now gone, but no photo was placed in his memorial. His obituary in the Marysville Daily Appeal, 1-15-1907, stated he was to be buried in the family plot in the Marysville Cemetery. The Rackelbush Plot is located on the cemetery map dated 1924, then we looked at the plot in the cemetery grounds, it does not have any visible headstones or markers, but we did not probe. This plot is listed on the map under the name of J. J. Rackelbush. When looking in the Burial Book records it seems there was a mix up of some sorts as it states Henry was from Ireland and buried in Yuba City, Sutter County, California, which is just across the river from Marysville, Yuba County. Also there is a Jennie Rackelbush, 20 years old, recorded as being buried in the Marysville Cemetery on Nov. 10, 1902. Rackelbush being spelled, Rackelbusch under her name in the burial book. If you would like to have copies of any of the items I have mentioned please feel free to contact us through the message in findagrave or email at PioneerCemetery@aol.com, hope we can help and will be glad to post at least a picture of the plot.

RE: Janet McAuslan I'm descended from William McAuslan, one of Janet's older brothers. Another brother, the oldest, Peter McAuslan, left drafts of letters he wrote. One dated 1898 from internal evidence (he speaks of his daughter Agnes who had recently died, and her death is known to be Jan 1898) is to his sister Agnes McAuslan Allan who was living in Bluff, Utah. She is the one who raised Janet's boys. Peter Allan was heading off for a mission to Scotland and apparently Agnes wanted him to have family genealogical information. The letter gives family data about their parents, grandparents, siblings, and his children. In that list, he says, "Jannett McAuslan born December 11th 1840, died August 3rd, 1890." Maddeningly, he doesn't say why or where, or where buried.
Robert Moore Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.
Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace
Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772
Job & Fanny Hulse The Rusholme Rd Cemetery has been moved and they have built where the cemetery once stood. The first burial took place in 1821 and last in 1933 and which was transferred to the Manchester Corporation by the Manchester Coproration act 1954. I learned this when I visited Manchester Library in 1999. MFPR 689 interment registers 1821-1845 Manchester Library and SLC # 1818102 record of the tombstones in Rusholme Rd Cemetery
Brian's ashes are buried in the Lexington Cemetery in in of our four family plots. Nola and Edgar in one...Craig in one and Brian in one. I do not have the plot number but I've been told some of Brian's friends got together and bought him a headstone not too long ago. Certainly the caretaker at Lexington will know the plot number. I haven't visted there in quite some time so I do not have any photos for you.
RE: Albert Hattaway Hi Tom, Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Thank you for asking about Mama, it's a joy to hear from someone who had contact with her while she was working on her geneology. She loved it so. Unfortunately, 2011 has been a rough year for us, as Mama passed away on January 19 and Daddy on January 30. I'm the eldest child and all the family photos are with me now...so are all of her geneology records. I want to work on it but to be quite honest, it's taken a week of vacation for me to even take a small dive. I did post some photos that I've scanned. Will try to do more as time permits. I think I posted a photo of one or two of your folks. Thanks for moving it over, do you also have our grandmother, Helen Walling Hattaway Bennett? I'm sure we'll connect more.
Again, I appreciate your swift reply, please contact me if I can assist in any way. Shannon Smith Erickson
