John McClure Hockman Cemetery Henry county Ohio
I added my great great grandfather today. John McClure founder of McClure Ohio. I have his birthday different from yours. I wonder if your John is my John. I don't know if my great great grand father served in the civil war. the John you put up has Civil war info on it.

RE: COTTON family
Yes, I also noticed that you had Cotton's listed! I am at our summer location and the internet isn't always working very well so I hadn't looked at your list. I just did. In my tree I have your Benjamin and Dollie listed and his parents, Benjamin Noyes Cotton. My ancestor was a brother to Benjamin Noyes...William Cotton and his wife Ruth Cram children of Benjamin Cotton and Elizabeth Leavitt.
From William and Ruth I go to Solomon and Ruth Montague (Vt to Edwards, NY) and then my gggrandfather, John West Cotton who moved his family from Edwards, NY to Hart, Michigan 1865. My mother was a Cotton.

RE: Louisa Lloyd Mercereau
No, she does not appear to belong to our Krueger family. Thanks anyway! I would like Louisa's thought and then I will do all the links to the other listing.

Louisa Lloyd Mercereau
I saw where you listed Louisa #148406467 I believe in 2010 with burial unknown. She fits into my son-in-laws family (Krueger). I see she was listed again in 2015 in Association Cemetery in Lucas Co, Ohio with a picture of her gravestone #51936712. I would like to see her listed once and linked with family and was trying to figure out how to best do it. Since the gravestone picture is posted that would be the best one to leave on Findagrave. Would you be willing to either transfer her to me and then I would make sure all the information is put on the other listing or would you delete yours and I would make sure everyone is linked up correctly. Please advise me what we can do. And thank you for your consideration and Findagrave work!!

RE: John's mother
Thank you for editing the name. My 3rd gr grandfather was Nicholas Burkhardt. His daughter Mary married Lorenz Bungart. It gets very confusing because some of the Burkhardts used Burgett, Burkhard and Burgard. My sources are church records, local histories, death records, birth records and death certificates.

John's mother
Hi, I am the 3rd gr. granddaughter of John's parents Nichola Burkhardt and Barbara. I have records showing her maiden name as NOSS. Their marriage record and birth records of some of their children. Perhaps the name was spelled differently?

Thanks so much for all your help. I've already found one relative in the source you sent! Hopefully I can do a RAOGK to pass it on!

Thank you for processing my edits on Thomas Cleary #44278712. His sister Catherine married into the Van Meters, and was my father's grandmother.

I don't know if you happen to know this, or how local you are to Toledo -- but you seem super active and on top of things, so I thought I'd float out a question.

I think the key to taking our Cleary's back across the ocean lies in the records of the Calvary Cemetery in Toledo, and the associated Catholic Church, if they still exist. Would you happen to know of any holding locally? Or who it is that might know? We have births there from 1836-1852, and the mother (of Thomas, Catherine, and siblings) apparently died in 1852 as well (rumor only at this point).

Thanks again,
Catherine Van Meter
