I have been traveling & taking photos of gravestones & doing Genealogy for roughly 40 years, now.... It has just been in the last 3-4 years that I have tried putting up some of my family into findagrave.com.... I love helping people with their genealogy...
Augustus and Lurene Rowe France Hi Jan. Sent you an email that I was following the France family (Augustus grandson of Daniel Sanford via daughter Eunice). I found them. Had four kids, Rowe, Foster, Una, Corene. I also just found the obit for Augustus's wife Lurene (not Lauren) Rowe France, who you entered into database as burial unknown. Will send requests for updates via findagrave links. I'm also going to post obit as jpg on memorial. If you want me to remove jpg, let me know.
Don't have an exact date for death of Lurene, just that she was buried 5 March 1931, so probably died ca 3 March. Will ask my cousin, who started all this, to look up exact death date at NY State library.
Son Foster is buried in Oklahoma and on findagrave. Sent in request to link him to parents and wife. Hopefully the link will be done.
Son Rowe and daughter Corene died CA, couldn't find either on findagrave. Corene married multiple times, died under surname Pollack.
Daughter Una married William Frederick, died in Cobleskill, I entered into the database, and wiell transfer to you if you want her.
Neither Foster nor Una appear to have had any children.
They were a medical family. Corene was either a nurse or a chiropractor. Foster was a dentist. Rowe was a physician. Not bad for kids who's father died when they were young.
Have followed all the kids, have censuses, some deaths, etc. Will send them to you or your daughter if you want them. If you want me to send them to your daughter, I'll need her email address
RE: Mary Jane & William Clyde Henry This is a private cemetery operated by the Ladies Social Gathering Inc. since 1859 and early records are spotty. The cemetery's board walked the cemetery in 1995 and combined their transcriptions with previous records to publish a book of burials in 1998. That list is online at iagenweb.org/hardin. It lists Addie Howe as the owner of the cemetery lots for the burials of both Mary and William. Mary Henry is listed as the stepdaughter of Joseph Howe, husband of Addie, in the 1910 census. In the 1925 Iowa Census, Addie's parents are listed as William Sullivan and Mary Coffin, so it appears this is the mother of Mary Jane and William. I have not been able to find anything further on Addie, Joseph or Charles. I do not live in Iowa Falls and am not familiar with what obituary resources may be available there. I am not related. If you are and would like transfers, I'm happy to do that. Thanks for the information.
Photo requests for St. Pats, Bay City I was unable to fill these requests because the office lady is very unhelpful about locating graves. She hates a list so I have found it easiest for the individual who is requesting the photo to find out the location. I have an index of existing tombstones that some nice ladies did for the Bay County GENWEB but that's for the old St. Pats where most burials are from the early 1900s. Sorry! Mary Brennan does not appear in the tombstone index.
