Samuel Bellamy
Please, check the Concord Cemetery and find that it is in Indiana, not IOWA. Whoever did the census for 1850 used IA for Indiana, not IOWA. It should be necessary to correct this for all the descendants of Samuel and his family. PLEASE do the correction!

Memorial Gardens/Acacia Hill
Sorry for the apparent confusion re: photo requests for Vandolah couple. The weather has been impossible here, for the past 3 weeks! Roads icy, snow covering graves, and markers.

When one accepts the request to photo a marker, there is a 2 week limit for submission. After obtaining the recorded location for these graves, and searching the designated area for a couple of hours, I was unable to 'find/photograph' them within the allotted time.

When the weather clears (in the next week, or so) I shall mount another search of the Acacia Hill area.

RE: St. John's Cemetery - Crawford County, KS
Hi Chris,

I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to reply! Yes, I was using a headstone transcription book compiled by the Douglas County Historical Society in the mid-1980s. The book also contained old inventories from defunct cemeteries and funeral homes. I think the "Crawford County" listings were my mistake - I probably picked the wrong city reference and it snowballed from there.

Your logic makes absolute sense, I bet the grave movements would explain the duplicate listings in different cemeteries. You are welcome to make the necessary edits, though it's probably only fair that I do them :) Let me know either way and we'll get these fixed.

Thank you!

Lesta Henry
Chris, I was mixing up my Henrys and Hankins. Bill Hankins should have been Bill Henry. I did find Bill buried at Lonesome Hill Cemetery and have requested a link to his parents.

Do you by chance know who Lesta's Moore parents might be? I haven't been able to figure it out.

I always welcome corrections. Thanks.

RE: Yikes!!
LOL...gotta take some weirdness to keep things educational, huh...hope Mr. Williamson no longer has an identical twin! This all made me think that I HAD made him a memorial before, but then there was a "magic transfer" that included an additional erroneous memorial. I've gotten these about four times since being a member, and they seem to be connected to other members leaving and their work being transferred to someone else who is active in the same geographical area. It's much nicer to be able to transfer people AWAY from me and into their families, which reminds me I should do that for Mr. & Mrs. Williamson ~ :)

RE: Vandolah graves
Thank you for your rapid response! I shall contact the company that maintains Memorial Gardens (where my deceased husband is buried also) tomorrow (Monday), to obtain the location of these two graves - hopefully? photos will be taken/entered by the end of the week.

Hello ~

I see that you have 2 photo requests for a married couple (Vandolah) at this cemetery ... before I go to this location and 'search', please know that - since 2006, this cemetery has been totally canvassed and photographed; there were no graves bearing this name. I also see that you have created pages for them, at this location.

I shall contact the company that has all the grave listings tomorrow. If you are certain that this couple is located at this cemetery? please forward your information 'source' to me, via SAC from my now deceased husband's page . . .

and I shall try to locate same. Thanx -

RE: Mart Elizabeth Imel
The ones who moved to Oregon would have been my cousin's family. They moved to California first and then to Oregon. Did you family remain in Kansas?

Mart Elizabeth Imel
This fine lady married into the Sullivan family to John Sullivan. John's son Charles Samuel Sullivan married Esther Mary Frame and she was my G Aunt. I know it is a stretch, but Charles Samuel Sullivan's son Charles Frame Sullivan ( 1C1R) was a close friend to me in later years of his life. He also stirred my interest in genealogy as well. Sorry I did not reply earlier.

Do you have any direct connections to the Imel family tree?
