D Stewart
Stewart/Whitehead Cemetery, Clay Co. KY
In reply to a note about the possible confusion of the 2 cemeteries (I think there is only one), I have posted photos of the headstones of my GGF Benjamin Stewart and GGGF Thomas Stewart on Find-a-Grave. The oldest homestead in the area was Thomas' and the cemetery probably should be named after his family as his headstone is the oldest and the land was his. Stewart's lived in the same area with much of the same property from about 1810 or so through 1970. My grandfather owned the property in the early 1900's but he is buried about 5 miles away. There may be a cemetery on Spring Creek (which is over the mountain or ridge of hills about 2 miles or so south east). My GM Helton (and GGF and GGM Helton)owned most of Spring Creek 100 years ago.

I propose that the Whitehead and Stewart Cemetery be combined -- perhaps Stewart/Whitehead?

E E Poole
I found E E in the 1880 census in South Bend, with occupation photographer. The only city directory for La Porte with his name in the classified section was 1890. The others which I found at the library were for 1888 and 1886. A brief conversation with the County Historian confirmed that E E Poole was active in La Porte for at least a brief period.

RE: Halter's
I don't know off-hand the photographer which you name, but I'll check the local references soon. Would welcome photos of any of the Halter family.

#38577942 Alice Louise (Brink) Oakes
I don't control Alice's memorial page #38577942 but do control her husband's memorial page #7741636 so I added some further info to his page pertaining to his wife, Alice. I could not find any info confirming Alice was married to a Mr. HOLT prior to her marriage to Verdane Oakes in 1958. If you have a copy of her marriage certificate to this Mr. Holt does it show her parents as Edward Brink & Rachel (Snider) Brink?
If there's any info you'd like me to add to Verdane's page please let me know.
Have a wonderful weekend!

RE: 96565367 Elmer Ellsworth Ackley
Thank you for your message. It's been "fun" splitting one person into two, but I think they're straight now. While I was at it, I opened the grave stone photo in my photo editing program, increasing contrast, lighting it up a bit, increased the dpi -- just about everything except for mowing the lawn. Too bad the grass blocks some of the inscription. Still much is illegible, but I've put them on the site for you to use as you wish.

I haven't worked on Ackleys in ages and seem to have lost the link to Allen Ackley's web site. Do you happen to have it? I haven't corresponded with him in a long time.

Thanks again for sorting out the Elmers.

RE: 96565367 Elmer Ellsworth Ackley
Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, I am unable to read the tombstone to compare the dates, but that there is more than one Elmer Ellsworth Ackley makes sense to me. "My" Elmer was one of 12 siblings, and back then, families were so large they were bound to run out of original names.
