Bio Photo Please have compassion for others and if you cannot reply in a positive way, then don't reply at all.

My husband lost his battle with esophageal cancer Nov. 2014, his memorial # 139923728.

I will put in a blanket THANK YOU here for all who do my edits/corrections; I submit too many edits and corrections to open and reply to each one, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your time and effort in doing them.

We are all fighting our own private battles and don't need the negativity. If I don't thank you promptly, please don't be harsh. I always thank volunteers as soon as I can. Please be kind in your messages to everyone on the site.

** From Wichita, Manhattan, and Wamego, Kansas, living in Dallas, TX area (Garland, Sachse, Caddo Mills, Celeste) since 1982. My paternal ancestors came from Ireland (Conley/Etchison/Loy/Grimes) and my maternal ancestors from Switzerland/Germany/England (Shoup/Brandon) who migrated to Kentucky/Tennessee then to Kansas. Daniel Boone is connected in our Brandon family line.

My husband's paternal ancestors (Siebert, Schmidt) were Russian Mennonites from Karolswalde region, Russia who migrated to Pawnee Rock, Kansas in 1875 to avoid religious persecution and brought with them the Turkey Red Winter Wheat to the U.S. His maternal ancestors immigrated from France (Breault, LeBlanc) to Kankakee, Illinois, then to Clyde-Clifton, Kansas, a French community.

You're welcome. I wish I could have given you a picture of a monument but I felt you at least needed to know where she is buried

RE: Bell
No there is a note attached to the photo. The Bell grave is not marked. The grave is located 3 spaces from the stone in the picture.

RE: Alexander Brandon
Please note the second photo. He was buried in another cemetery that was moved to expand the airport. This is where he and hundreds of others were laid to rest in the 1990's

I will keep the earlier spelling for Catherine DOWLIN, who died early, the same year as sister, Hannah.

I have given further consideration to this matter and have made the decision to charge the name, DOWLIN, to the later spelling, DOWLING, for all but two, Dennis DOWLIN himself, for reasons already stated, and for his daughter, Hannah, who died young, and whose name appears as DOWLIN on her gravestone, as well as in her father's will, and never as DOWLING, that I have seen. I have also changed, HOLLOWOOD, to the later spelling of HOLLYWOOD. The earlier spelling should possibly be used for the generation of her father. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Can you check this one; I think it's posted to the wrong cemetery; see Lane Cemetery in Hunt County, Texas. Appears it should be in a different one.

"Burial will be in Lane Memorial Cemetery in Sunray by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors of Dumas."

The earlier spelling of DOWLING is DOWLIN. Dennis DOWLIN signs his name this way, and refers his children as DOWLIN in his will. The earlier spelling of HOLLYWOOD is HOLLOWOOD, and Dennis DOWLN refers to his daughter, Eliza, with the earlier spelling. I have always preferred the earlier spelling.

Is there a reason why you want the spelling changed to reflect the later spelling? I am hesitating to reject your request to edit, because I do not like doing that, but I am not certain what the advantage is to making the change. You may want to reconsider your requests, and if you decide one way is not really better than the other, than I prefer you delete the requests, rather than I reject them. I do welcome your comments, and will accept the requests if you are able to give me a compelling reason to do so.

Thank you.

Thank you for the various links for the Members of the Sloane family buried in St Vincent's Cemetery in Madison NJ. Are these folks by any chance related to you? Would you like them transferred to you? If so please contact me. If not I am happy to keep them.
