RE: James Watson In reply to: James Watson You show a James Watson in the Oakland Gibson Co, Indiana Cemetery. He was born 1807 and died 1872 . You also list a child Samuel M Watson Unk and died Jan 8, 1878 at 3 yrs 1 mo.
Is there a Catherine near by? She would have been James's wife. She was born about 1812.
Is the child located near James, do you think he could be a son of James??
If you can help , it would be appreciated. I thank you, very much for you effort. Susan
RE: Mrs Mary Dibble Susan; thank you for the information. You didn’t specify which Mrs. Mary Dibble your information applies to; I have two listed in Milfordside Cemetery in Woodbridge, CT. One has the date of death of Aug. 3, 1784 engraved on the marker, also on the marker is “Died @ 51”. Doing the math, this Mary Dibble would have been born in 1733, plus or minus a year, about seven years off the date you provided. The other Mary Dibble has the date of death Aug. 3, 1762 engraved on the stone, and age at death as 44 years. Doing the math here makes this Mary Dibble’ birth year as 1718, plus or minus a year, about twenty-two years off the date you provided. I’m sure you can understand why I’m reluctant to add or make changes to memorials without some documentation, especially when there’s a significant discrepancy in the information. If you can provide some documentation, as well as the date of death so we could narrow down WHICH Mrs. Dibble we’re referring to, I’d be glad to make the changes. Thanks again for the information, and for your contributions to Find-A-Grave. John W.
If you're looking for where these children might be buried, you might have some luck contacting the local cemeteries in Ashland.
Saint Agnes Cemetery is managed by the local Catholic church, and their contact info is on their website: http://www.ourladycc.org/
And Mount Hope Cemetery has a phone number listed as (715) 682-5434
If the local cemeteries don't have any records of them, let me know, and we can try some other options to find some information. If they died in Ashland, maybe the historical society might have some records of them.
Daniel Downing & family Hi, I will do my best to get back over there before the weather turns. Are you direct relation? Would you be interested in joining the DAR? He has never been proven so that would be really great to have a brand new patriot! Thanks!
