Myra Lyon
Jonathan, thanks for the parents of Myra Lyon. I've added the names to her memorial. Now, I've got to see if they have memorials so I can link them.

Patty Matteson link
Sorry - just looked it over again and its likely because the dates are very incomplete as yet - I submitted full dates a couple days ago and they haven't been accepted yet. Sorry for troubling you. Thought it was some kind of glitch.

RE: Patty Matteson link
I meant that on Peleg's page the spousal link shows only Patty's name, with no dates included as is usually what is seen.

There is no page number in the link for the Captain's wife - it is #64943017.

RE: Photographs of Free Church Cemetery stones
Some of the stones when they were store somewhere before being moved to Riverside, came up missing. I'm also related to the Matteson family. My father is interested in talking to you about the family. If you could email him at

RE: Photographs of Free Church Cemetery stones
Yes, we took each stone off the stack and I photographed every stone that was there. Even some that were around the stack in the weeds.

Charles Mandeville Andruss (#137659813)
Greetings, Jonathan!

I've noticed that Charles Andruss's name now appears in the Family Links section of the page I created for Gen. Cornelius W. Mandeville, listed as the general's son. This is curious, because Charles' surname is Andruss, not Mandeville. This paternal link to Gen. Mandeville also appears on the page you've created for Charles Andruss, along with a maternal link to the general's wife, Jane Jones Mandeville, who died in 1821. Since Charles Andruss was born in 1838, 17 years after Jane died, she could not possibly have been his mother! While there are reasons why a man may not use the same surname as his father, there does seem to be a mistake here. Perhaps you could look into it.

Best regards,

RE: Mary wife of James M Matteson
There wasn't anything else on the stone but what I posted. But can try to find some information for you about James and Mary, if you would like. Just let me know.
