Rhea, somehow I am going to get in touch with you. For some reason I receive emails, but I cannot send emails. We have had trouble with our internet for several months---I don't give up easily---so I know I will get it fixed. Thank you for the pictures! I will be gathering info and pics for you. There were 4 brothers and 2 steps sisters. The brothers names were Ivory Orlan Law, Joshua Perry Law [nickname-Jot], Whitten Wright Law, Callen Hunter Law. I seen the info about the Colcord cemetery, my sister had the family name "Colcord" in some of her info. I have no doubt that we share the same ancestors. My sister was the genealogist in our family. She passed in 2003. Then my brother-in-law handed boxes of "stuff" to me. I have read thru much of it, but not really sorted it as it should be. "NOW" is the time!!! I am wondering if you would like to have some pictures and info sent to you. Then you can sort thru the info yourself. I would gladly to that for you. Take Care and I will be in touch. Sheryl

Rhea, my name is Sheryl Law Batien. I live in South Dakota. I believe that your great grandfather Wright Witten Law and my great grandfather Ivory Orlan Law were brothers. I have pictures of them. Also of Nellie and Vern. I can be found on facebook. If interested please leave a private message.

RE: Cornelius, S.Elizabeth & Alma Gibson
When you go to the Fairmount office ask them for a Family Plot Map for Plot #15J-6. The family plot maps have a lot of information on them. Most people don't usually think about a plot map.

RE: Cornelius, S.Elizabeth & Alma Gibson
Rhea: I supplied the plot information, I also sent a correction for Cornelious and S. Elizabeth to their Manager to have them changed from Greenwood Cemetery to Fairmount Cemetery.

Have a good one....

RE: Law photos-Colcord Cemetery
the stones are for children of James...it says J.D on the stones as the father, if that helps

RE: Law photos-Colcord Cemetery
the son died in 1865 I believe, and i think it said Son of J something, but we do know they are related some how to the LAws I know the stone doesnt say Hunter but not sure exactly what it does say

RE: Law photos-Colcord Cemetery
you can add memorials to west Genesee (Colcord) that you know or are most likely there, the newer interrments will most likely be in Genesse Grove Central Cemetery. I have about 50 more photos of west Genesse, but only 2 i can verify as LAW

RE: Law photos-Colcord Cemetery
I have transferred the 2 children to you and added the photo of her stone to your memorial, there are at least 2 more "Law"s in this cemetery, one is a daughter died in 16 Oct 1865 or 63 : 9yrs 6 ms 17ds. i can't make out the name , the other is i believe a son not sure of name other than LAW and someone reset the son in concrete covering the dates forever, next to that is a Thomas...nothing else can be read on the face of the stone.

if you know who they are that would help

Have fun figuring this one out

RE: Law photos-Colcord Cemetery
Welcome. those photos were taken in 2009, that cemetery is pretty close to abandoned, sadly most the stones are now getting totally destroyed, there are a few more Laws in the cemtery, one has only a death date in 1861 buried near the two you requested.. the top half is missing so i have no clue who it is to add them...if you know of this family maybe yu can figure it out.
