RE: Russell and Malinda Wheeler
Hi, Shawn,

You have Susan. Glad to know she's back with her family.

It's always easier to make out partial information on a stone when you have some reference points. I had taken a photograph of Susan's marker before and couldn't make much out of it. When I found out that Russell and Malinda were buried in this lot, the partial information actually started to make sense. With your additional knowledge of the family, hopefully you can fill in some of the other gaps!

I see Ron Brown already has a memorial and marker photo for Harriet (West) Brown. I've sent him edits to add that they were both buried in Section D, Lot 130. This lot was owned by Gilbert Brown. Unfortunately, both the Index and interment books show Harriet's name as Hanett; and the interment book shows that Willard was buried on 10 Sep 1903, when his stone shows a date of death of 1900. It is possible, but seems unlikely, that he was buried elsewhere first and then moved in 1903. The unlikely part comes in because other members of his family were already buried here, so why would they first bury him someplace else? The interment book shows that Harriet/Hanett was buried on 3 Sep 1900.

My workmen just arrived, so I've got to run.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. I'm putting together a database of the information folks have on Greenwood, but the earliest records we've found so far only go back to 1891, about 40 years after the cemetery was started. Anyway, I have photographs of a lot of the records, and will be doing more as time permits, so I might be able to find things for you.

Take care.

Russell and Malinda Wheeler
Hi, Shawn,

I hope you are doing well.

I have posted photos of the place where Russell and Malinda are buried. Unfortunately, no marker remains for either of them. However, there is a marker for their daughter, Susan, who appears to have died 24 Apr 1842, perhaps only a few months old. Does that make sense with the other information you have about this family? I posted a memorial for Susan, which I would be glad to transfer to you.

Please see the captions on the photos for Russell and Malinda for additional information. Again, unfortunately, it does not appear that there are any records for Greenwood cemetery prior to 1891.

Sorry I could not have better news for you.

Take care.

RE: Bainbridge W. Dunn
Thank you Shawn. I also do not believe Bainbridge to be the grandson of Absolom Clarkson Dunn. Bainbridge is my 2nd great grand uncle. His mother, Phoebe, is my 3rd great grandmother. I have exhaused all resources to never find her maiden name or husband. She is buried with Henry Dunn and Dorothy Prickett. No one in our family is buried in the same cemetery as Absolom Clarkson Dunn.
Thank you for your consideration, Bev Dunn, Cincinnati, OH

Bainbridge W. Dunn
Hi Shawn, I have been researching the Dunn's from Brown County, OH since 1993. I am very curious as to where you found the mother for Bainbridge W. Dunn to be Phoebe Osburn? I have never found Clarkson Dunn to have a son William, who you say is the father for Bainbridge. Can you please tell me where you found this information. From the 1830 thru 1880 Census Phoebe is either head of household or shown to be widowed. She is my 3rd great grandmother.
Thank you for your consideration,
Bev Dunn

RE: Nettie Belle Waller Brayton Cruse
Mrs N B Brayton was married 5/7/1893 in Bates Co., Missouri to T.A. Cruse

This was George Albert Brayton first wife.

RE: Nettie Belle Waller Brayton Cruse
I sure Nettie Belle Waller must have been divorced from george and married Cruse. My Brayton's go way back to Mary Brayton Devore. IJust trying to figure out the family with Iowa connections.

RE: Bailey/Rutherford stones
Wayne is on my list of "to do" cemeteries but not for awhile. Just make the requests (even though you have photos) and when I get to it, you'll get a reply. I'm working on doing all the cemeteries in Mifflin County if I live that long!
