William H Curry
I don't have anything that would probably help you, but in the 1830 census Elijah lived near Wm H & several Weddles. Other than finding a will or a Jackson Co. history, I'm afraid I have no other suggestions.
Census records:
1820 Jackson Co., IN
Elijah Curry
3 males under 10
1 male 26-45
2 females under 10
1 female 10-15
1 female 26-45

1830 Jackson Co, IN, Carr twp
Elijah Curry
2 males 5-10
1 male 15-20
1 male 40-50
1 female 5-10
1 female 10-15
1 female 15-20
1 female 30-40
Elijah lived next door to William Curry(age 50-60), and nearby to many Weddles and also Wm H. Curry.

RE: Isabella Watson
Sorry but I received very little help at this cemetery. I traveled for a week in southern Ontario to do whatever I could in over 15 cemeteries (couldn't even locate some).

Most cemeteries were very helpful in person...even took "by the hand" and showed me around to find the graves I wanted most to do. Victoria Lawn was not one of them. For being a city cared for cemetery, it was lacking in people skills with those of us who were standing there in person. The young man with whom I had talked to on the phone was of great help to me...can't say the same for the other one in the office!

Was told in the office that there was only ONE Isabella Watson, sorry that I took his word for it and let you be...upsetting you so.

You might want to put the information you gave me onto each person's F.A.G. memorial to enable others searching to help. Plot information and inscriptions will help others.

Again, I'm sorry for the errors in cemetery information. I seached where he drew on the map without ever finding them.

RE: Cemetery photo
Glad I could help. Let me know if you need any transferred. I triple checked my spelling and grammar before I sent this to you. Having been a proofreader, you never stop working. Hope I scored 100%.

RE: Saray Lynn Eager
I am not related at all. Last year I took all the graves in Block 4, Section B & C.

All those that are in Calvary are from that same plot. They all should be related.

I took several pix last year of relatives' graves in the Summit Level Cemetery and Alpha & Woodhull cemeteries.

Are you a relative of Lois Payton? I am - she was one of my ggms.

RE: Mosher photos
glad it helped your research; it made me think I was a bit crazy but the wife's data was spot on so I figured it was an error in the data you sent me.
