Find A Grave Correction: Polly Andrews Thank you for this interesting tidbit. Would you have a copy of the probate record that you mentioned in which James's widow Martha listed her husband's surviving siblings? Is it online? - Sally Bailey, #46573381
Stapleford Request FYI--obits are no longer permitted for copyright reasons (see the current FAQ)--but as this one is before 1923, it's in the public domain, and I have allowed it. But an admin could choose otherwise down the road per current rules. You may wish to provide an extracted(re-written) version as the bio, with the name, location and date of the paper at the end. That's acceptable under the current rules.
I see that George Rulason was married the first time in Jun 1918. His first wife was Minerva Sowders. I see on this site that George Rulason had no children from his first marriage with Minerva Sowders. But, according to the 1920 census, George W. Rulason and Minerva Sowders had a son, born 15FEB1918. His name was Edward Rulason. By the 1930 census, his name was listed as Edward Sowders. Edward R. Sowders was my father, and if George W. Rulason was HIS father, then that would make George W. Rulason my paternal grandfather. If that is the case, my last name would have been Rulason, instead of Sowders.
I am looking for information on that side of the family. I see now what happened to George W. Rulason, but Minerva Sowders Rulason (who had been re-married herself, I believe, to someone named Arthur Dupree) had dropped off the map before the 1930 census. Information on my paternal relatives is relatively weak and I would like to learn more, if possible.
I added two memorials to the Farnsworth family, Harry and Edna. It's possible that they are the same children that are listed as infants. If anyone finds that to be the case I will gladly delete the memorials I created.
Clara Bell (Alvord) Barth I am trying to resolve a mystery, maybe you may be able to help. Buried in Riverside Cemetery, Denver, Colorado, directly next to Clara Bell (Alvord) Barth, memorial #35247201, is Fredrick "Fred" Schenk, memorial #75110511. In the 1880 Census living in the Wm Barth household, his name was spelled Schank, other variations, Schenk, Schenck. Wm Barth provided a place for him in the Barth family plot at Riverside Cemetery. Do you happen to know of any family relation with the Alvord family to this individual?
RE: Bridget/Bridgett I didn't see any Cannavan or Clancy stones. The Hale reference is 227-2 St. Lawrence Cemetery, page 215. They spell her name as Bridgett. I took several other photos which I will send you this evening if you give me your email. That will give you another representation of the plot. It's a huge cemetery and it took awhile for me to orient myself, but once I did it was extremely interesting.
Norman Penoyer Do you happen to have any further information on the family of Norman Penoyer? I can't seem to find any siblings or parents and I'm hoping you might know something to help me with my research. Thanks, Katrina
