Maude mantle edit
sorry I am late in getting back to you. Thank you for the info on Maude mantle.
What I did was take all the pertinent info like date parents and do a short bio. rather than copy paste the document because much would be repeated which is already there in the date and bio section. I used to copy and paste but am getting away from that as to make things shorter which conforms more to what find a grave wants as per faqs.
But I have put the most pertinent info there and I tink if a person were interested they could find info on ancestry and family search.
So I do appreciate your sending me this and wanted you to know that.
Residents of the asylum were known by numbers and data and many of them had no known relatives. For me it is a challenge to present a bio which is more human. I want to somehow start to create bios that look a little less clinical. Perhaps that is impossible I don't know. But I am going to go through these entries and try to do that. Having been in health care and experienced the joy of knowing many of thee courageous people I hope I can at least come up with bios that reflect that.
Any time you wish to create such a bio please feel free to do so. I know one contributor who has done that on some of her own entries so thanks to her work I wish to do the same even if it is a short bio.
Best regards and thanks again.

Leonard Stahl
You suggested that I add a birth date (1804) and a death date (1840) to Leonard Stahl's record in Somerset, PA. Before I do that, can you point me toward the documentation for those dates, please? Many thanks.

Susan Kunkel Headstone
Hi Betty

I visited Saint Marys Cemetery in Salem, South Dakota about a week ago. I was taking pictures of my McGregor family who has connections with the Bies & Kunkel families from that area. I took pictures of Susan Kunkel's headstone (she was the mother of Elizabeth Kunkel who married Frank Bies) and they are all buried in close proximity to each other. However, the dates on Susan's headstone has stumped me. It says she was born on 16 Aug 1876 and died at 60 years old. It's difficult to see that on the headstone photos posted by Paul Fiskum so I added one more that clearly shows these dates. I am assuming that this Susan is the same as Susan Wingert Kunkel listed for Saint Marys and I noticed that you discovered the same issue. Did you have any luck finding out whether these two Susans are the same? Even through research of various census years, I can't find a Susan Kunkel that matches the birth date of 1816 or 1876. I am wondering if the headstone dates were engraved with personal email is I would love to hear your thoughts on this mystery. Best regards, Jamie Fink

Holliday Cemetery
Hi Betty,
I am Lois Baker, the Holliday Cemetery is located on my farm in Murphysboro, Il. 17 years ago I begin to clean the cemetery and look for stones. I have completely restored the cemetery now and have fixed all the broken stones and made a grid so that if the stones would be destroyed some day the placement of the bodies will always be known. I have photographed all stones and put as much information that I could find with each stone. The contributor (Kim R) has posted information about several of the people in this cemetery with out my knowledge. She has since passed away and there is not a way to remove any information once someone is no longer with us. She has different information than I could acquire and is important to the site. Because I have restored the cemetery and done all the work on the stones I do not feel I should delete any of my work. So for now there will be several names that you will see twice. Thank you for your interest. Happy Hunting, Lois

RE: Wright family
Hi Betty, It is nice to hear from you. Where do you fit into this line? I have not actively researched the Elizabeth Will line. Let me check my records and see if I might have something else on Elizabeth though. Please e-mail me at and we can carry on this chat.

Thank you,
Debbie Snook

Memorial # 83368877
I will try to investigate the discrepancy with the date of birth. The only thing that occurs to me presently, is that he gave an earlier birthdate to the draft board to avoid the draft. According to the draft card he was age 49. At one point during WWII, men age 45 were eligible to be drafted, so maybe he wanted to stretch his age a bit, in case the age limit was raised again??? I'll do some checking . . .
