Charles Barden
I am looking for a Charles Barden, son of Lucinda Bates Barden and Silas Barden of Canaan, NY. My Bates and Hall families are from Lenox and Richmond, MA.
Dates match up so thought I would ask you about him because there is no parentage information. please contact me. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Sophie Matthews
Wow - thank you for this information. I will definitely do more research on it & make the appropriate corrections.

You mentioned Emma & W.E.'s memorials - I'm the one who took pictures of their headstones in Evergreen Cemetery. There was so much about this family I didn't know - I had hit a stone wall. Thank you.

Have you seen this site? It highlights Bill Matthews himself:

Then this one is supposed to be a cemetery 'directory' (obviously it has mistakes, as Sophie is recorded as being buried there):

Sophie Matthews
Hi - I got your note about Mrs. W.E. Matthews. Can you be more specific about records that show she is Florence & not Sophie? A Skagway historical web site offered this information as well as a Pioneer Cemetery directory.

RE: Danhauer Cemetery
Hello Lois:
So sad news: today after my radiation treatment I drove out East Pike to see what I could see of the Danhauer Cemetery. There are no traces of it behind this business. If you zoom in on a satelite image of the area, behind this building you can see what looks like the cemetery with a few stones standing. I drove back behind this business and the one next to it. PWI had kind of bulldozed around the area and there were stacks of pallets strewn about. There were some deep ruts in the dirt and thank goodness it was a dry day. I didn't have my camera with me because I thought I'd just locate it and then go back to take pictures.

I don't know what kind of business this company is and maybe you could contact them to find out what happened to the cemetery and if the remains were relocated; and what happened to the stone markers. From my car I looked along the tree lined creek bed to see if I could see any stacks of stones, but there were none. Maybe if you contact the Muskingum County Ohio Genealogical Society, they might have an answer. If I get there in the next week or so, I'll try to find out. So sorry I don't have better news for you.
Here's the company info:
PWI Supply Company; phone: (740) 455-4355
2890 East Pike; Zanesville, OH 43701
