Luther Labree
Good Morning.... A small error I noticed on your Profile for Luther Labree. Luther was not the son of Thomas & Hannah (Ham) Labree. He was the son of Thomas & Judith (Ham) Labree who were married in Greene (??) on 20 Dec 1809. Judith died in Childbirth on 19 July 1825 at the age of 31. Thomas then subsequently married Hannah Potter on 29 Oct 1827 in Corinna where they together had three boy and two girls; namely, William T., Cple John D who died in battle with his brother Alfonzo in 1863 in Chalmette, Louisiana, Judith, Mary, Nancy, Lucy and Thomas.....This children of Thomas & Judith (Ham) Labree were James, Alfonzo, Daniel, Rufus, Luther and Peter.

Caleb Gates #79679394
Could this be the Caleb Gates you do not have a cemetery for? See #149778964. Just thought if this is the same person, you may want to combine the memorial that was added last year :-)

LYDIA OAKES ROBBINS-CASTOR
HI CHERI:

CHECK OUR THE MEMORIAL # 6645 3391 FOR LYDIA OAKES "CASTER" . THIS SHOWS SHE IS BURIED AT THE ODD FELLOWS CEMETERY AND DIED NOV. 21, 1941. WITH THE INFORMATION FOR HER DAUGHER, BERTHA ROBBINS WARD, AND BEING IN WASHINGTON, IT COULD BE THE RIGHT PERSON.

THIS MAY BE OUR SAME LYDIA BUT WITH A DIFFERENT SPELLING.

SEE WHAT YOU THINK AND LET ME KNOW.

HOPE YOUR ARE DOING WELL!!

BEST REGARDS, CHARLIE

No relation but, my Mother worked for old Klammers back in the old days. We are from Oelwein also. Where is the Blume family buried? I had associated the name Blume with the beauty business. Thanks Bonita Meyer Meier

Nichols and Oakes ---

I am also related to Oaks/Oakes so I guess we are distant cousins. I am descended from Martha Oaks Nichols, daughter of John Oaks and Elizabeth Barton.
Question.... Do you know where they were in 1840? I haven't found them on census.
What is your family legend about their move to Benton County?

Hope to hear from you. fostergaylej@hotmail.com

The Wrights
Hi Cheri,

First I would like to thank you for your time and effort you have put forth in this project. A well rewarded one, fun, and spiritual.

I am Sharon Henry Steuber, Alex and (Nancy) Florence Stanley Wright are my maternal great grandparents. I would like to link a few generations and would you mind transfering
Florence #24573829 and Alexander Wright #24573846 to me?

I know the Oakes are related, the came from Tennessee with my gg grandfather, Iredell Wright. How is Florence Stanley Wright related to the Oakes. Florence is the daughter of Elijah Stanley. I do not know her mother's name. Can you help me with that? My father (Sam Henry) is buried in Alabama and the Wright's are his maternal grandparents. My father's sister, Aunt Florence Henry, is still alive and tells me about the farms, the Oakes, where they moved from etc etc. Is there any information I can help you with? Which family are you interested in?

Thank you so much. God bless you today and always.
