I was born in Dallas Texas, grew up in Florida and spent my adult life in San Diego, CA. I worked for Ford Motor Company for 35 years and my husband was in the Navy for 21 years. We retired to New Mexico in 1998. After 7 years, the Lord moved us to Helena Montana to fulfill His plans for a ministry. After 7 years in Montana, we returned to New Mexico. My husband and I conduct free seminars teaching the book of Revelation. The book of Daniel was sealed up for the final generation and it has been unsealed. We show our students how they can fully interpret prophecy on their own without the help of any outside sources other than the Bible and the Bible alone. I believe in God the Creator of the Universe, his son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
I am a die-hard Cowboy fan who never jumps the wagon, instead goes down with the team.
Being a Navy wife, I support our military. I do not necessarily agree with all actions of war taken by our government, but I support our troops in all situations. I appreciate that they lay their lives on the line 24 hours a day for my right to speak my mind and proclaim Jesus.
I began genealogy in the 1970's as a "gofer" for my mom and dad and became totally addicted to the hobby. I have published 4 books. One on my Evilsizer Family and the others from my mother's side..Nuckolls. I have over 150,000 persons in my databases of research. I am a certified genealogist and am currently (2015) President of the Sierra County Genealogical Society in New Mexico and just was accepted into the DAR under the Patriot Phillip Schuyler Board.
RE: Thomas J Hodgson Of course, thank you! I communicate with the gentlemen in the office of the Masonic Lawn, and he is trying to gather more information on the burials. From what I found on Ancestry it looks like he died in New Mexico and was buried with his parents in Sacramento. The plot was a Typographical Union section so perhaps the parents had made allowances for their children to be buried there too. I don't know. It is not uncommon to have the remains sent to one cemetery first before being transferred to another cemetery. I don't know the cemetery there, but they could even have a crematorium or provide memorial services. There is a cemetery near where my father lives that does both. My father also is a FindaGrave volunteer and occasionally has issues with requests where the remains were sent there, then afterwards was given to family or transferred somewhere else. He has had a couple of people insist the burials were there, when the records in the office stated the ashes were taken away by family. So if you have time, I would check with the cemetery there to see if his remains were moved. That would confirm it was the same man. But based on what I know so far, I think that is what happened.
Another little mystery I found in the City Cemetery next door to Masonic Lawn, was a base for a missing headstone for a gentlemen. After searching I found the headstone was removed and sent to another cemetery along the coast. Turns out the wife was a Woman Woodsman of the World, and she had the headstone made for her. Her husband died first and she had a big family stone made for him, with her name on the other side. She then moved with her daughter to the coast and when she died, they removed the stone to put on her grave since it was her Woodsman of the World that provided it. So the cemetery here is wondering where the stone is, and the cemetery over along the coast is wondering where the husband listed on the stone is because there is no record of him being buried there. Strange things have happened.
I didn't receive a message back so I just visited the cemetery. The gentlemen there is very nice and did read my email but haven't had a chance to respond yet. But he already had looked up the burial lot and said Hodgson was buried there and he does not have any record of him being removed. It seems he might have died in New Mexico and was sent to be buried with his father in the Typographical Union section of the Masonic Lawn in Sacramento.
Thomas J Hodgson Sorry for the delay in a response. I am not on FindaGrave as often anymore. The burial photos clearly show the headstones of Thomas J and his parents buried in the same plot. All I did was photograph them to post on FindaGrave. The burial plot location and the mother's maiden name were taken directly from the cemetery's online database that was at MasonicLawnAssociation.com. The site no longer exists, however they were listed as being buried there at that location.
It could be that the Fairview cemetery took possession of the remains to be transferred to Sacramento to be buried with his father and mother. With the Sacramento City Cemetery which is next door to the Masonic Lawn there are many instances of this happening. They have a vault that was used in the past for temporary burials until the family could arrange to have them moved.
Today I emailed the cemetery to ask for more information for you and will let you know when they reply. They would be the ones that would know.
I used to live by Silver City (Santa Clara) and frequently passed thru Hot Springs. I currently have a place in Albuquerque and my job keeps me traveling to different areas of the country. When I get time, I check out and fulfill Find-A-Grave requests in sometimes remote areas when there are few or no volunteers available. :-)
I had been going through the unindexed death certificates in familysearch (I'm pretty sure it was familysearch) at that time -- I would have to go one-by one again though those to find it - the cemetery listed may simply imply the area. I suspect that is the case. I'm transferring to you so you can research and if necessary, move the entry. She may well be in a destroyed cemetery or a place we'll never pin down.
I hate AOL - they started this "crap" a couple of months ago! Said I have a glitch in my email - humm - what did THEY do to it? Said I have to subscribe to some technical "repair" stuff for $$$ - no way - it's a free email service.

This Elizabeth Nuckles Manley from Find-A-Grave: Birth: 1873 Death: July 8, 1937 Burial: Mound Hill Cemetery, Gallipolis, Gallia County, Ohio Created by: Joe Manley Record added: Nov. 9, 2005 Find A Grave Memorial #12292885
Joe hasn't answered emails for a couple of years and no one knows what's up with him.
I tried to research her on Ancestry and it seems she (if I had correct person) was in West Virginia for most census records; so why is she buried in Gallia County?
Can't find anything in 1880 census to tell who she is or any later census to tell anything about her.
There isn't even a death record in Ohio or West Virginia for her. Just thought that you might be related.
