Grace B Stephens Harvey #121283068 Bill, Thank you so much for posting the memorial to Gracie. I have been looking for her for a long time. She was my gr grandmother's, Nancy E Stephens Brock, sister. We never knew very much about my gr grandmother's family. It was only about a year ago I discovered they were from Metcalfe Co. I had all the names of her siblings & their approximate ages from the 1880 census records. I have located them all except one brother. I found your memorial by searching for all the Stephenses in Scott Co. She has a brother buried in Sellersburg. Do you, by any chance, know her husband's name? Again, thank you & God Bless, Nancy
Fidella Baker Millis #88784317 Thank you so very much for submitting the picture of the gravestone for Fidella Baker Millis at Pleasant Ridge Cemetery.
She was my great-grandfather's first wife. They married December 30, 1894 in Clark County, Indiana and moved to his hometown of Plainville, Daviess, Indiana. She contracted Typhoid Fever and died August 25, 1894.
From what my grandmother (from Burton's second marriage) told me, even though Fidella had not lived long in Plainville she had made many good friends and was dearly loved. She also said that Fidella had been expecting their first child at the time of her death so her death was even more tragic.
Thank you for helping to remember Fidella. Her obituary published in Washington stated she was a beautiful talented young lady, had been an instructor in German at the Borden College and very involved with her church.
Standish in Wood Township, Clark Co., IN Hello. I noticed that you are working on graves in Wood Township, Clark County, IN. Should you come across any grave for a Standish there would you please let me know? My ancestor, Silas Standish, (direct descendant of Myles Standish) came in 1819 to Clark county along with Thomas Bellows and family, (David, Lydia and Laura Bellows), Peleg Lewis, Samuel Hallett and Joseph Durfey. Bellows was Silas's cousin. Silas Standish moved to Washington county around 1828, but his 1820 Census has a mystery female under age 10 that I cannot account for. She was not on the 1830 Census. Perhaps she died there in Wood Township. I'm enjoying looking at all those buried in the old Borden Cemetery and previously made some contributions to those on F-A-G. I discovered today that the famous Prof. W. Borden of the Borden Institute is related to me through his mother. Fun! Linda Standish Thank you for your work on this site.
Thomas Scott Bellows #71151307. You may wish to link him with his wife, Lois, # 82098164. You'll see that after Thomas Bellows died, his wife married Peleg Lewis. Thank you. P.S. Thomas Bellows was my 2nd cousin, 6x removed. Linda Standish
RE: Nora Graves, 144704406 Considering the long length of time between her death and the death of her husband it is possible that she may have been re interred. The photo of the stone was definitely taken at Crown Hill. You might check the data base of Crown Hill cemetery at (( http://cityofsalemin.com/city-of-salem-online-services/crown-hill-cemetery-burial-database )). It gives the plot location and the year of deaths. It does not give the date of interment. Hope this helps.
