RE: Eliza Thompson
I wish I did. I was hoping he was buried with his wife, but I can find no record of it.

Please transfer my GGG grandfather Simon Reed to me.

Thank you for setting him up, or I would not have been able to locate him.

Please delete the spouse of Elise Thompson, Pvt Andrew Thompson. Although he served in the war and had the same birth and death dates, he was not negro.

Esther Noll
Thanks for the info on Esther Elizabeth Bachman Noll in Glendale cemetery. In Washington. I was transferred the grave and had not had time to check the info yet. Are you family? If you have any other relatives of hers I would love for you to transfer them to me since we are relatives. Thank you for all you do.

RE: Colgans in Blair, Nebraska
For the moment, I think we will be okay because of the photos. After we have them added, and the memorials are all "shipshape" then if you would like me to transfer some I will be happy to do so.

Colgans in Blair (again)
I just accepted 4 photo requests for Colgans in Holy Cross, and hopefully that should help in your search!

Colgans in Blair, Nebraska
Thank you for your edits. My problem is that cemetery records seem to show 2 sets of Bernard and Catherine Colgans, one pair (unk, 4/9/1932) and (unk, 4/25/1932) and buried in Block 24, Lot 10, Spaces 8 & 9 and the other pair (1866-1932) and (1867-1932) buried in Block 24, Lot 11, Spaces 10 & 12 (with a Francis Michael Colgan (1896-4/22/1951) buried in Block 24, Lot 11, Space 11, between what would seem to be his parents.

It feels like duplicate entries, and since Block 24, Lot 10 has no more Colgans in it, and Thomas J (possibly Lee) (3/26/1894-12/8/1948) is also in that Lot 11 (Space 7) it may be that the Lot 11 is the winner, with birth years of 1866 and 1867 needing to be filled in for the unknowns.

I would very much like your "take" on this. Truthfully, even if you go out to Holy Cross, there is not a whole bunch of difference between Lots 10 and 11, but if Bernard and Catherine are buried next to their children, then the secretary at St. Francis Borgia may have made an error back in the 1930's when all these were entered in the first place.

RE: Susanna Dollison
Thank you for your response. I am sure the information I sent you is correct. When something displayed publicly is wrong, that bothers me a lot. I'll have to not take it so seriously, maybe!
