I lived in Oklahoma and have always loved seeing old cemetery stones. Now I am able to go out and take pictures of them. I have recently moved to Illinois and when I get settled am looking forward to doing cemeteries here. I want to preserve as much as I can for our future generations. If you would like me to transfer a site to you I will be glad to. Please use the edit tab as it gives more of the information needed to transfer a site. You are welcome to use any pictures I take for genealogical purposes.
Here are a few names I am researching: Holcomb, Kingery, Perry, Slover, Strange, Tucker, Vail and Weir.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
Regarding Nellie it has come to my attention by the grand daughter of Nellie that the link for her father should be 79322598 which was submitted to Find A Grave earlier than the double entry made by another. This correction will then bring her in line with her ancestors of which is also mine linking her to Clark then his Mother and Father George A. Malaby.
If you would be so kind as to set this number in place this will then give those doing research the full and correct story.
Alta May Holcomb I found the information on Alta Holcomb and Samuel Allen Oldham in the Wabash County Illinois marriage records book 2, page 199. I will doublecheck it and try to get a picture of it to send for you to verify. I am not a relative of Ms. Holcomb but rather Mr. Oldham he had been married previously but his wife died in 1914 leaving him with twin children.
foud a lost photo Ann I found a lost photo of William riley winters 1854-1930 and trying to return It to the family if there is any possible way you can reach them please let me no and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Second wife of George F Trower George F. Trower memorial#20136845 apparently had a second wife. She is the one I am looking for in my genealogy. The second wife's name would be Evalyn Malinda Johnston Trower.
Evalyn was born in Madison county, Kentucky to Levi Pennington Johnston and Rebecca Rader Smith. Evalyn also lived in Rockcastle County, Ky with her parents.
Levi Pennington Johnston is buried in Jackson County, Kentucky. However, his wife, Rebecca Rader Smith is buried in Dale Cemetery, Shawnee, Potawatomie, OK. I think her headstone reads as Rebekka Johnston, but I am not sure at this moment.
Evalyn and George's children would be Cora, born in 1903, Thelma Orpha, born in 1906 and Lawrence E. born in 1908. Lawrence and his wife Lucille are buried in Garber Cemetery.
Eva worked at the Trower Hardware with her son and daughter in law Lawrence and Lucille in Enid, OK at one time.
I hope this info has helped. I just want to know where Evalyn/Evelyn/Eva Malinda/Melinda Johnston Trower is buried. My last info on her death date was 10 Sep 1939.
Any info you have will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Michael Guinn, Louisville, Ky.
RE: Orra Holcomb There were none in the area where she was buried. (I read your note)
I didn't run across any others but it's a big cemetery.
You might call the cemetery office 317-784-4484 and see what they have. I'll be glad to follow up on any you learn about. (I'd do it myself but they're not my biggest fans right now. I came back from Florida with a backlog of about 30 to check on. They gave it to a new employee as part of his training, and he quit as soon as he was finished !)
Your Holcomb notes I would like to correspond with you and perhaps meet with you sometime. I am a daughter of Herbert G. Holcomb, the son of Joe L. Holcomb, the son of William Herbert Holcomb, the son of Joseph(Jo) Holcomb -- he dropped the e on both names!, the son of Rev. John Holcombe. I appreciate the work you have done to identify the graves and enter the information on these people! The book, Nation Builders, is lacking some information with a few mis-notations, as you might suspect. One -- the marriage place of Joseph's first wife, Cener Boone, is incorrect in this book. Also, the Gordon middle name was given to my brother from my grandmother's brother, but I've never seen any record of that name applied to the John Holcombe, aka, one of the founders of Springdale, AR. My father wrote a book on his life with many detailed family and community family members records: "John Holcombe's Odyssey, a Story of a Nineteenth Century American Pioneer" c.1999, 162 p. Again, thanks for all the invaluable work you've done!
RE: Cora Kingery Thank you, Ann. I also have a copy of Ben Kingery's book. I thought I would use the pictures too, and cite his book as the source. It makes me feel better that we agree on that. Good luck in all your research, Linda
