Ellis family in the Ririe Shelton Cemetery Hello: I see where you have added three Ellis names into Find a Grave for our cemetery. We (the Ririe Shelton Cemetery) want to add these three names to our database because our records do not show them as being buried here. After much research we have determined that they are indeed buried here. Can you please give me a call or shoot me a E-Mail so we can discuss this family. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Best Regards. Blair Moncur (Chairman of the Ririe Shelton Cemetery Board of Trustees)

p.s. evenings or weekends are best to find me home.
John Halford Ellis I'm related to this John Ellis. We have a difference of opinion on his middle name. Would you be able to help us by letting us know where you found his middle name. We know he was married to Nettie Mae Turpin Ellis. The middle name we are finding is Daniel
RE: Cracraft Hi Darrel Francis Richard Cracraft was my grandfather. He was born in Iowa, his father Eli born in PA, his grandfather David born in PA, and his gr grandfather Joseph born in PA. Joseph was the grandson of Joseph Cracraft (also spelled Craycraft, Cracroft, Creacraft, etc) born in the early 1700s in Maryland. I believe your Cracroft line is more recently to America, coming to Utah in the late 1800s as converts to the LDS church. I have not done much research on this line. However, I worked with a group online who believe it is all the same family, reaching back many many generations to England. This group did DNA testing to see if we were truly connected and found that we were. I believe the man who coordinated the testing also reached out to some Cracroft in Utah and Craycroft in England and it was determined that somewhere back in time we truly did connect. If you would like to connect with the coordinator of the DNA test, send me an email and I will send you his email address and web address of his work. I know this response was rather 'wordy' but there is no quick response, and I hope I didn't confuse you :) Holly
James Oakes No, I don't have an Elsie Oaks or anything else on them. I'm not related. If you would like a transfer, let me know. The cemetery might be able to tell you if she is there or not. Phone is 303-399-0692
Gravesite of Alice Redmon & Ora Ione Jackson Hochstrasser My mother is Alice Affleck Redmon and my grandmother is Ora Ione Jackson Hochstrasser. In my research doing genealogy I happened to come across their memorials on Findagrave (memorial #94863315 for my mother, Alice Redmon) and also Ora Ione Jackson Hochstrasser, my grandmother, next to her in the cemetery. I contacted the creator of the memorial ? Grothamm just to see if I might contribute photos or stories, etc. about them. He suggested that I should take over the memorial because I was related, which I did. Then I was just informed recently by a Nancy Roberts from Findagrave that there were two memorials for each of them, one being mine and one being yours and that we shouldn't have two sets of memorials for the same person. I am trying to contact you to see what you would like to do about it. Perhaps you are related in some way. My memorial for Alice Redmon is #94863315. I also have my father's and his mother's memorials and not sure if you also have them as your memorials. Would you like me to delete my memorials? Just want to keep to the rules of not having two memorials on one person. Thank you for your help with this.
