Dear Pam,

You have posted the obituaries of this couple. Do you by any chance have copies of the original?

RE: Jacob & Mary J Lory in the Old St. Joseph Cemetery in Edina, MO
Dear Pam,

I am so grateful to you for doing this! :-) I have been working for almost a year to figure this out, my Father's maternal line. Jacob and Mary J Lory both died before the State of Missouri began keeping death records so I couldn't figure it out on my own and I wasn't able to get any response from the Parish. I knew the dates had to be off but I couldn't prove it.

This is amazing! I'm thrilled that I'll be able to read the obituaries! I think I have just determined who her parents and brothers and sisters were these past few days and I've been working on it since June, combing through censuses and documents trying the lines of different families to see if they fit. I'm so excited to see if any of them are mentioned in the obituaries so I'll know if I'm right! My next project was to work on Jacob's family. Wow!!! You've really made a huge difference! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Very truly yours-- *smiles*

Jacob & Mary J Lory in the Old St. Joseph Cemetery in Edina, MO
Pam, do you live near Edina, MO? I am concerned that the records for the Old St. Joseph cemetery that are online for Mary J. and Jacob Lory may be reversed. They are my Great Great Grandparents. The cemetery records on line show Mary J as dying first and Jacob later. But Mary J. "Lorey" is listed as Jacob's "widow" on his Civil War pension record in 1908. Also, every census from 1850-1900 lists Joseph's approx. birth year as between 1845-1847, but the online record lists 1856. The 1880 & 1900 censuses list Mary J Lory's approx. birth year as 1855 & 1854 respectively, but the online record lists 1843. I have tried to email the parish and ask about the original records, but have never heard back from them. Is there any possibility that you could do some detective work and sort it out? Thanks for your time and consideration. I appreciate any help you can give me. --Laura

Jacob-Haynes Cemetery
I saw you had posted a name in a family cemetery that I think may be what is also called the Jacob-Haynes Cemetery. Do you know anything about that cemetery? I have a list of about 10-12 names that are supposedly buried there.

I have the newspaper obituary for James M. Gooch, and it gives his name as James M. Gooch. The photos I have from my grandmother indicate that his name was James MONROE Gooch, not James Madison
Gooch. Do you have any idea what his middle name is supposed to be?

Sharp Family From Edina Mo
Hello I am doing research on my Dad's side " Sharp" family. I have done a family tree . I have only met 2 of my Dads relatives as he died when I was young. I met his father George " Dewey" Sharp once when I was 4 years old. I stumbled on your article and thought I would touch base with you and see if there is anything you could let me know about this family. How did you know them or how did you happen to an article on the Sharps ? Thank you so much. This is very exciting to me to maybe meet cousins I may have never knew. Dan Sharp

Anna Cecilia Alber
Hi Pam,
I've been working on the Alber genealogy. In reviewing the information regarding Anna, the site notes that her mother is Mary Gertrude Costello Alber. If this is the case, Mary would have been seven years old when she had Anna. do you think Anna's mother was recorded inaccurately?

RE: wrong name
thank you for your "neighborly" act. In fact there are 3 Mt. Zion churches in Macon County, but only one cemetery by that name. In fact the one you have listed as Mt. Zion nortwest of New Cambria is named Cash

I believe this gentleman should be Sydney L. "Siddie" Herr. He's in my son-in-law's line.
