RE: Manuel Boys You are welcome, my wife and I were driving to Nauvoo today and she spotted the cemetery off the highway and wanted to know more about it. I showed her how to access my FindAGrave app and she saw that there were 3 photo requests listed. The young age of the Manuel boys caught her attention and she wondered about them. She suggested that on our way home we stop and try to find them. They were not hard to find. The weather was very overcast but the photos turned out a little better than what I was able to see in person.
Keith Deyo Thank you very much for looking. I have his DOB as 1909 but that would not be right for WW 1 either. I must have something wrong and will check it out. Thank you so much for passing that info on to me.
RE: Barkmans in Erie Thanks. The names on his parents on the inscription do not match the census records. Martin Barkman and Addie Gray in the census records are contemporaries of David (Martin born in 1842 and Addie in 1851)-Martin was born in PA so he may be his older brother. This headstone looks to be in great shape. It does not look over 100 years old. Do you think it was created way after his death by someone who did not know his parents?
I have created the other memorials. I would appreciate your adding the photos to them. If you want, I can take all of them over (including ones you created previously such as Alberta and Howard Barkman) and link them together (or you can).
Walter Scott Hi AnnE, Cemetery records show that Walter is buried in the same plot as his family. However, there is no inscription on the monument. Would you like me to upload a photo of the monument to his site?
