|Cheryl White||Howard Leroy White|
When I added the info for Howard's accidental death (Rochester Cemetery) I was not able to link him to his mother, as named in the article. So, I added a note with the Find A Grave numbers for his sisters who are buried in Mt. Auburn.
|Thomas Gartner||John Allen|
Thank you for posting the info on John Allen (1823-1912)in Lynn Creek Cemetery. He was my great-great-grandfather (pretty sure this is the right John Allen.) I see that the headstone is in an Allen family plot and just says "Father." I was curious to know if there is a stone in the plot for "Mother"... that would be his wife, Elizabeth (Kirk)Allen, who died in 1911, and whose grave I have not been able to locate.
|Karen L.(Gregory) Largent||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
|Sue||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. :)

|Cheryl White||Info you send along|
Just a note to thank you for all the obits and edits you send along. If they are in Mount Hope Cemetery, after I add the info, I print the page. All the obits we find for Mount Hope people go to the offices there, to be placed in their files.
|Ann Jarmer||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
William G. Haggle is buried at the Wolf river in Brown county, not this one.
|Karen L.(Gregory) Largent||RE: Hancock Family|
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!)
|Deborah Compton||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.
