RE: Samuel Stewart
Sorry I'm not much help. If David is buried in Grace Lawn and next to Samuel, there's no marker. You might want to check with the cemetery office in Elkhart.

RE: John Stewart #133363508
You're welcome. There were no other names on the gravestone and yes, there was a Civil War star. You may use the photo in your genealogy. Robert

Cleaning up memorials
Not sure what you mean about "cleaning up" bio's. I'm the one linking all the parents, spouse, children to most all of my memorials. And I look at pending requests for edits several times a week.

The new edit feature still goes thru the memorial creator, with the ability to accept or decline. Granted, you have to go online and look for pending edits since they don't send a message anymore until the edits are about to go thru automatically. And yes, wrong, uncorroborated data does get out there and correct data does sometimes get changed without any protocol from Ancestry/Find A Grave for fact checking the requested edits.

If you are editing the Wingeard book be wary of errors and assumptions made because he had no access to certain data. So much new ancestry data has been made available since he published the book in 1986. At one point I know he says in the book that he hopes that some descendants take an interest in continuing and proofing/correcting his research. Kudos for taking that on. Chapter 5 is a different line than me.

John Stewart
I am sorry but I did not see John buried there. Do you have any dates for John?

RE: Question
Yes, Minden and Liberty are two separate cemeteries. Minden is inside city limits and Liberty is a country cemetery, about 8 miles north of Minden.

RE: J.L. at Felton
Hi, I try to link all the family I can locate. I think this will help anyone in the future that is working on genealogy. John's parents are my 4th Great Grandparents. His sister Anna married John White (1799-1863). I am related throught the White family. I really believe this grave is John's because he was living in this area and his son is buried there.

1870 United States Federal Census
Name:John Loftin
Age in 1870:70
Birth Year:abt 1800
Home in 1870:Kemper, Mississippi
Post Office:De Kalb
Household Members:
Name Age
John Loftin 70
Elizabeth Loftin 64
Thos Loftin 39
Kate Loftin 20

Thank you for putting the note on his memorial and I will put a note on his parent's memorials. If you decide not to link them then this will at least let family know there is a good possibility that this is his grave.
