Thank you so much for adding my grandparents to the F-A-G database, and more-so transferring such to myself. I look forward to updating their pages!
Have a wonderful fall!

No, I didn't make a request for a link to her parents.
Thank you for linking her and thank you for all you do for Find A grave.

Tillie / Tilly / Mary M. Hillsbury / Hillsbery
Hello, I see you are the manager for David Edward and Levertie Hillsbery. I was wondering if you are family? I have no connection to any of this family, I was just wanting a little girl connected to family. I had noticed a photo request on Find A Grave Thursday for Thomas Laswell and possibly wife from another individual. I did some research before claiming the request. By the time I returned home to claim the request it had been claimed. Although the request was for Thomas he is buried beside Tilly/Tillie/ Mary M Hillsbury. I have found Tillie's death notice from two papers on microfilm, both spelled Hillsbury. I have them if you are interested. In the burial ledger from the City of Eureka, her parents are listed as Ed and Verdie Hillsbury. Ed (David Edward) was the step-son of Thomas Laswell and son of Matilda Laswell, (from my research) which explains why Tillie was buried beside him. There are no other family members buried here in Greenwood Cemetery to my knowledge. Two empty spaces remain in the Laswell lot. Unfortunately, there are no headstones for either Thomas or Tilly/Tillie. Tilly is #94350836 on Find A Grave. Tilly died Feb. 5, 1897. Both articles say she was two years of age. No birth date was given.
Even though I didn't get the request I forwarded the death notices to the person requesting the headstone photo. She (Danna) never replied to my e-mail.
In one death notice the child is called Mary M. and the other she is called Tillie. Both articles match for date of death and Father, Ed Hillsbury.

Burned To Death
The Two-year-old Daughter of Ed Hillsbury Burned to Death at the Family Home During the Mothers Absence.
Mary M., the two-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Hillsbury, residing in the north-east part of town, was burned to death from playing with fire last Friday afternoon, during her mother's brief absence from home.
Shortly after four p.m. Friday, the mother left the daughter and son, the latter past three years old, at home while she went to the home of Mrs. Sumner, on the opposite side of the block, to return a borrowed wash-tub. But a few minutes were consumed in the trip. Returning, she was met in the yard by the little boy, who told, as best he could, of his sister having caught fire, stating that he had accidentally done the deed while they were playing with the fire in the stove. Rushing into the house, Mrs. Hillsbury found the baby lying face downward on the floor, its clothes almost entirely burned from the body. Medical service was of no avail, and the child died at eight o'clock that evening.
The child was interred in the Greenwood Cemetery on Sunday. Mr and Mrs. Hillsbury have the sympathy of all in their sorry.
Eureka Herald, February 12, 1897, page 1, column 5.
I know you don't have control of Tilly's memorial but felt if this is your family you could make the request to connect her.

I'm sorry, I think I may not have been clear about my interest in this entry. LOL What I was trying to say was that the note on his page came from me. I just wanted to be shown as the source of the note about him and the information about his wife, Jenny Lee. There was no intent to take away from your work.

I don't understand why I am no longer shown as placing this information on my Great Grandfather's page? Is it possible that you could transfer this page back to me? Thanks.

ruth m hedges memorial
Hello again. We've been in contact previously on a number of memorials.

I have a "hunch" that Ruth M Hedges (1904-1939), wife of Laud Newton Hedges buried in Old Yankton Cemetery is the daughter of Fred H and Nellie Taylor also buried in Yankton. This is based on circumstantial census evidence - propinquity and tracing her up to 1930 - but no definitive record of Laud's first marriage, sometime before 1937, or records/trees on Ancestry or Family search. He's a widower in 1940 Milton Precinct, Columbia Co census with two minor children.

Any help would be appreciated.

A while ago you transferred my uncle's memorial to me. I would like to know if you can do me a favor. I am trying to find out whether my aunt, Lucille Clara (Virnig) Smith, is buried with George. She married Lee Gress after George's death. Their marriage lasted only seven years when Lee died. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!! :-)
