I have always loved history and this is another way in which I can share my passion. I was born in Mississippi and that is where most of my relatives are buried. I now live in Madison County, Indiana. Most of the memorials I have added are not relatives of mine; I will GLADLY transfer per guidelines. ***************************************** Currently working on Section 27 in East Maplewood Cemetery in Anderson, Indiana
John D Vetor #70897447 Thank you so much for linking him to his parents for me! He was my 2nd great-uncle and I'm glad to finally have him with his parents and most of his siblings. Your efforts are most greatly appreciated.
I wanted to ask if you could remove your Memorial of my Uncle and Aunt because it is a duplicate. I made their memorials in 2010. His name is Benjamin Porter and Uree Porter. My Memorial # for him is 48430522 and for her Memorial is 48431498. I really appreciate your hard work and interest in my family. Thank-You so much!
RE: Hairm Fox Thanks for the reply. I'd be interested to see the coroner report, if you have a copy.
The wife's name was Elizabeth E Robinson and they were married on 11 Sep 1910 (hey! it's their anniversary!) in Hayward, Pemiscot county, Missouri.
Hairm's obituary (which named him as "Hiram") makes no mention of his wife. However, his wife's obituary (from 1971) mentions him. I can send copies of both, if you'd like. Just reply to my original email and I'll send them.
His was in the Anderson Daily Bulletin, 10 Apr 1952 (p.32), and hers was in the Anderson Herald, 22 Jan 1971 (p.2).
David W Swank Greetings: Though he and his wife are buried in Indiana, do you know if David W. Swank ever lived in Trotter Township in Carroll County, Missouri? I have reason to believe he may have, and I would like to find out. David's grandson Jesse David Swank and his great grandson Eugene David Swank are buried in Trotter Cemetery in Trotter Township. David's son Newton Swank is buried in Texas County, MO, near the Ozarks, for some reason I don't know of. On the 1876 and 1896 plat maps of Trotter Township, a parcel of land is shown as belonging to David Swank, and the 1876 map is too early for the land to have belonged to Jesse David, born in 1880. Also Jesse David's parents Newton and Margaret were married in 1876, so I feel like from these details that David W Swank must have lived in Carroll County for some of that time, or else he bought the land for his son Newton when they were married. Hard to know that now. Hoping you know something about this question. These people are not related to me, but they were neighbors of my great grandfather in the 1870's and afterwards, and I am a friend of David's great great grandson - yet another David Swank with whom I went to high school. Four generations of Davids: David W, Jesse David, Eugene David, and his son David, and I think his middle name is Eugene after his dad. Thank you. James Hart (#48246426)
