|Margaret Gibson||William Henry Harrison|
Hi, .... He was my g,grandfather and a mystery to me in a way. I've been with ancestry.com for many years yet not even the cemetery, who knows he was buried there, couldn't find his grave when I called! Find-A-Grave ID for him is #42281189. If you have any way to find any info on him I'd sure be grateful.
Sincerely, Margaret (Harrison) Gibson

Thank you for wanting to add info to John's memorial. May I ask what are your sources for his birth county & for his death place, please?
Thanks! :) Susan
My mother was Marjorie (Hamilton) Brooke. Her mother was Martha Ann (Waters) Hamilton. Her father was John Thomas Waters 1858-1945, and his father was William Nathan Waters (1828-1901). I have just a few family records, have been searching every census that relates to them, found Wm N's civil war record,FindAGrave has John Thomas, his wife, Martha Jane Griffith, and her family -Cary Cemetery, Carroll, MO. Just this week I added William Nathan Waters memorial page with Big Adkins Cemetery-no stone. I have a newspaper paragraph from Nov 7th, 1901 that tells death, service and burial. Carroll Co Library volunteer, Glen Hill, found it for me. Glen was also caretaker at Big Adkins for 30 years and he said, "no stone there". I remember just a few little from things mom told us, but we just didn't write things down and have basically no "story" type information.

I have searched for a FindAGrave memorial for Isaac Waters and/or Elizabeth Sweeney Waters many times and was surprised and happy to find them added. Now I'm wondering if you could help me with any info about them. I've been working on my family history and they would be gr gr gr grandparents. I have found marriage record, census records and such from FamilySearch, and some information from online genealogy, but find some of it accurate and some not. Thanks for their memorials. BC, Carroll Co, MO,

|L Moses||RE: Russell childrens' graves at Love Cemetery|
I found William in the 1880 Census for the Point in Calhoun. He is listed with his wife who is only referred to as "J" with a son Orwell and a daughter Opel. All of these match the family history for Jane Minesinger, the mother of my grandmother, Eva Russell Arnold.
As a bit of an interesting sidelight, the family numbers for William Russell's father, another William Russell, bracket the Minesinger family.
One thing to note is that the census taker was damn creative with his spellings, i.e. "Rossell" for Russell and "Mainzinger" for Minesinger.
Your Walter may just be a Walter but his wife Margaret is most definitely "Aunt Rit". This gives me a new lead to run to ground.
As to correcting the Love Cemetery data, this is my third or fourth day as a member of this website and while I am staggering thru adding a photograph and a caption, I am totally uncomfortable trying to do anything on a cemetery listing and the links.
Thanks for your responding with a new solid lead to follow in tracking down "Aunt Rit".

|L Moses||Russell childrens' graves at Love Cemetery|
Hello, I am a direct descendant of William Russell and Christina Jane Minesinger of Calhoun County, Illinois. You have listed the parents of three Russell children buried at Love Cemetery as William Russell and Margaret Minesinger Russell. Margaret Aurelia, known as "Rit" was Christina Jane's younger sister. I can find no supporting documentation that William was married to Rit before he married her sister in 1877. Could you please forward me any source information on the Rit and William marriage.
If you have anything on Elizabeth Booth Minesinger that would be much appreciated as I have a tintype photo of her and other of her children to add.

|Memory Keeper2||Norman Troxell|
Thank you for pointing out the duplication of the memorial for Lt Norman Troxell #73587681. I sent a message to the creator of his page and sent the information from his bio through the Edit feature. I will close the second page after I see the information about his military service during WWII has been added.
