Elmer A. Evans
I'm a volunteer photographer for Find a Grave and was honoring a request for Martha (Marie) Beighley( Elmer's first wife ). While I was there, I also took a picture of Elmer A. Evans grave marker and posted the picture to his memorial page.

Have a great night.

Robert Sproat Information
Penny, I read articles in the Tipton newspaper. The information I sent to you isn't the story as it appeared as it was quite lengthy. What I submitted was very basic, just an overview. Three men held up a store in Davenport, law enforcement in Tipton were notified the robbers might be headed their way. Robert was shot when they were intercepted 2 miles east of Tipton. President Bush dedicated the memorial in 1990. 2 of the robbers were eventually captured and sent to prison. Hope this provides enough information.

RE: Richard Badertscher
Sure, Penny. No need to credit me for it, it was probably one of the Badertschers who wrote it. I have a thing about obituaries, if not one of the better sources of genealogy, the more interesting.

We write them or at least supply the details for our friends and family members all over the country/world who pass away; pay dearly when they are published; and now are having our pockets picked by the newest of ingenuous entrepreneurs to buy them back in one barely searchable form or another. Or subscribe to umpteen digital newspapers in the middle of nowhere, just to read them.

Whatever happened to that damn fool who tried to patent genes, strands of DNA :)

On second thought, go ahead and credit me, so whoever imagines I infringed on *their* copyrights can sue me. I could use one last crusade before I'm dragged off to the crematorium.

Isaac Wampler in Mineral Creek Cem. in Johnson Co.,Mo.
Are you related to this Isaac Wampler 1825-1916 who is buried in the Mineral Creek Cem. at Leeton in Johnson Co.,Mo. ? Can you tell me if his parent's names were on his death certificate ?
I also can't find Isaac on the 1870 census anywhere. Any idea where he could have been ?
He was on 1850 & 60 in Indiana & 1880 in Johnson Co.,Mo., but can't find him on 1870.

Potential Famil Quesion.
Hi Penny,

I've been putting a tree together on Ancestry, and if the info is correct it looks like this posting is my great grandfather. My Grandmother was Ila Webb(his daughter).

I wonder do you have any pictures of him/them or anyone..?
my email is:

I'd really appreciate it, we werent the closest and Ila didnt talk much about her background so would be great to see any connections.
Thanks for your time.

Minnie Huff - Chardon

I went back and looked at the Geauga Vital Records supplied me by historian & Contrib Teeter Grosvenor, and it does give the date of 1975, and it is typed with no ( ) which indicates it is that way on the tombstone. I do not know further.

I would suggest contacting the genealogy room at the library in Chardon at this address:

They may be able to help further.

Also in notes section it does say w/o Harlow H. & that Minnie was d/o William & Ella (Smith) Parker

Hope this helps.

RE: William Jasper Hopkins
Hi Penny - I have no clue. Was it a cenotaph? If so it should not have been merged. The only other explanation I can think of is if someone noticed it as a possible duplicate they notified the admins and they merged it. I notice that does happen a lot, especially if a person does not want to go through the contributor that had made the duplicate and when it has been merged/deleted the admins will not notify when its been done (which I cant blame them on the amount of work that they do). The only other thing you can do is email Jim Tipton or one of the other admins and see what can be done. I'm sorry I could not be of more help. Cindy

RE: Shirl Fosler
Thank you for linking it so quickly. He is related, but very distantly. Another person may come along later that would like to maintain his memorial. Thank you for the offer though. :)
