RE: Mahaffey - Louisa & Thomas
I do know some Mahaffey's in Johnson county Ks. and Vernon County Mo. could you send the memorial numbers so I can see who you are speaking of? If they are connected to the ones here in Kansas the family would really love to see them. Thanks Jarrott

Hello Dorothy

You have a photo posted on the "Civil War Veterans Buried in SB County" for William. Would you consider posting this photo on his Find A Grave Memorial# 83665398.

RE: I Hern
Yes mike is difficult to get a hold of. I usually get a hold of the grounds keeper. He has been helpful.

I Hern
Hello Dorothy

I was up at carpinteria today, fulfilling a photo request. I checked on J. Hern in case you let let your claim expire I would photo it while I was there and add it later. I confirmed with Mike at the office that it is an unmarked grave, as is his spouse Juliana. Thought I would save you the time and trip.

Kate and Nellie Scheffer
I finally figured out the Scheffer-Nelson connection. Kate and Nellie's mother had a sister, Ada Finch who married Charles Nelson. Do you know the names of the Nelson's buried in that plot? Do you know if Ada is buried there?

Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
