Pletts in Turpin Cemetery
Wow, it's hard to imagine that these temporary markers have lasted almost 90 years. It's markers like these are especially nice to have pictures of. Thanks for all of your work on Find A Grave!

Stephen and Mamie Bowyer
Thank you so much for the nice photos of my Bowyers. I really appreciate it. I am hoping you might be able to help me find Stephen's parents who died in Beaver County. I am hoping they might also be buried at Gate Cemetery.

Stephen's mother is Almeda "Lizzie Lay Bowyer. Born 26 Jan 1861 Linn County, Missouri and died 18 Dec 1905 Beaver County. Stephen's father is John James Bowyer born 8 Oct 1856 Linn County, Missouri and died Mar 1934 Beaver County.

Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Carole

Fretz family in Pratt KS
Hi Tami! You mentioned that Esther Koppes Fretz was your gr/gr grandmother. I'll get a photo of her stone in a day or so. Right now, please email me at the museum. I've got some questions for you, and some Fretz family history that I recently got at an auction. I got it for the museum, but would be willing to share with you. Marsha ---

Roberts photo request
Thanks Tami for following up on this request. They are one and the same person. He was a veterinarian and was also referred to as "Doc". Elsies' wife, my mother and the adopted cousin migrated to Calif during the Dust Bowl era (after Docs death) - when farming was no longer a viable business. She must have lost the farm and his once lucrative farm machinery business he had. Pretty sad time for a lot of folks and double sad for my GM and mother to loose gthe bread winner just before Xmas. That old section of the Cemetery looks pretty barren, its a wonder anything is left.

RE: Charles Norton
You are very welcome. There are several Nortons interred at Claquato Cemetery so I'm not sure which ones you would like photos of. I do remember seeing a William O. in the same area as Charles. If this is a gravestone you would like a photo of just post your request for it or any others you have names for and I'll try to get them for you.

RE: Pvt. George Washington Slocum, Co. H, 86th Illinois
Dear Tami, I try to always say Thanks to the people who have helped me see pictures of tombstones that I really thought I had no hope of ever seeing. But, even if we never hear about it, I think that what we are doing will be appreciated by some long after we are gone. Take care, Stay warm, And may God grant you many more days to do what you love to do as IT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! Sincerely, Baxter

Pvt. George Washington Slocum, Co. H, 86th Illinois
Dear Tami, I am sorry for not getting back with you sooner. I want you to know how much I really appreciate you taking your time to do what you are doing for Find A Grave. I have been searching for the 992 men who served in the 86th Illinois since 1985. To date, with the help of countless numbers of people, I have located over 875 of them. As I have traveled around the country, I have photographed over 400 of their burial sites, but I always knew that there were going to be many that I would never see in person and most likely never even see a picture of. Then about two years ago, I found out about Find A Grave and all of the Wonderful Volunteers, LIKE YOURSELF, who do what you do. In the past two years, I have seen pictures of several hundred tombstones of veterans of the 86th that I had no hope of ever seeing in person and little hope of ever even seeing a picture of. I can't explain how much this means to me. From the bottom of my heart, Thanks for giving me hope that someday I might see pictures of all of the tombstones of the veterans of the 86th. Thanks for all you are doing for Find A Grave and Thanks for taking the time to search out and photographing the tombstone of Private George W. Slocum for his Find A Grave site. It is GREATLY APPRECIATED!! Sincerely, Baxter
