I am wanting to go to library and start adding obits for the graves in Babyland/Mt Hope. Where do I go to get started and do I need to put $ on my library card? Thanks so much.

RE: Josiah Penrose Garretson
I have many photos on my iPad but need to speak with my dad and make sure that I give you the right names with them. I'd also like to send you the transcription of Josiah's diary, he talks about his brother Ben being shot in the head and making arrangements for him. Ben was originally in a hospital in the DC area but Josiah had him transferred to the hospital in Philadelphia where Josiah recovered from his illness. Over the winter we traveled to Petersburg where Ben was shot and have photos of the monument for his Unit. My dad has so much amazing info and I just work to fill in the blanks.
Is the email listed on your Find A Grave account correct? I'll make sure to email everything there.

RE: Alonzo Hancock
Nancy, No Alonzo was a man, but his stone sure looks like it says Alonza. It's so strange.

Could it have been a mistake?

Those wild and crazy Quakers. LOL!

I'll have to ask my uncle about it. He is having

his Hancock genealogy book printed right now.

He'll probably know.

Thanks for the transfer, I'll let you know what i

find out.

Charles W. Walker
Thank you so much for the article & the correct dates. I so appreciate your patience in this endeavor. You don't happen to have his wife, Ollie's obituary, do you? Or his son, Jack Junior Walker. Jack was my brother in law, but I didn't do Find A Grave at that time..
If you don't, it's all good. I'll figure something out. :)
Best regards,

Harvey Benham
I am looking for family of Henry Benham (one of the memorials you manage. My Great Grandfather and Henry were best friends as teenagers and I have a picture of the both of them together. Just thought I would let you know in case a family member contacts you.

William Ross
I'm a cousin...
My dad was John W Ross. I think I may have
met you one time when I was a kid, Nancy. Just wanted to say thank you for keeping our family history alive.
The Turkey Farm is now closed. A Sad day, but life must always go on.
I love all the photos you have posted. I'm amazed at the strong line of genetics that have run through our family. I remeber your mother quite fondly...what a character she was!!
Feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone. 646-761-5052

RE: Hancock Family
Dear Nancy,

I am a double Blackburn! My 3 Greats grandfather Hancock married a Blackburn.

I can never remember how I am a double Blackburn. I'm always writing to Kevin Howley, the keeper of the Database.

He has found out for me that my Chiropractor is my cousin and that one of my Gregory cousin's wife is also my cousin!

Sometimes the relationship is through another name. I'm related to my cousin's wife through a Thomas Griffith and Eve Faulkner.

For me it's a small world all the time due to those prolific Blackburns!

I bet if I ask Kevin he could tell me right away. I'm going out of town today so I'll ask him tomorrow. Just give me maiden names and some ancestral names.

Karen (isn't this fun!)

Amelia Keener Sherman
You are listed to have submitted Amelia Keener Sherman's information for find a grave at Rochester Cemetery in Topeka. Her birth month is March. She would be my great grandmother.
Her husband was Jeremiah Sherman. He is not located in Rochester Cemetery. If you or anyone else knows anything about Jeremiah, I would be extremely grateful. My grandmother Devota Sherman-Walters has passed away and I promised her I would find out where he was buried.
