There is illness in my family right now. So give me a week at least to try and catch up. It is still fine to go ahead & ask for transfers & updates through the individual memorial edit button. Just know I do not have much free time just now.

If you are a closer relative than I am & would like a transfer, don't be afraid to ask.
I do NOT strictly adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers.

I want to make this more of a family record, than just a cemetery record. On newer records I've tried to keep it more to a minimum. I believe these are for the closer family to decide.

For the generations that came before us & those that will come after us.

A work this large could not be done without the help of others.

I would especially like to thank Karen K.
The cemeteries around Stumptown in Union Township would not be the same without her.

Do keep in mind, that the last name of a married woman etched on a stone, may not be the last name that she had when she died.

All mistakes are mine & mine alone.

PLEASE if putting flowers on the memorial of the plain people...PLAIN flowers. They led the simple life for A reason.
A few of the young men were drafted & served in the medical corp during the Civil War..again PLEASE simple flowers
ALSO they do NOT celebrate birthdates or death dates of the dec'd
NOR do they celebrate Halloween
ALSO they do NOT have "pictures" of Jesus or angels in their Bibles or in their homes

Jeff Gonyea on his profile has the following:

"We don't "own" the memorials we manage - they are not ours. We may create them, we may update them, we may transfer them to others - we are but stewards. They are Find A Grave memorials of human beings, departed.

They are not "friends" on a social media network website to be collected like baseball trading cards. And there's no prize for the one who dies with the most.

The reward (for me) comes from maintaining the most accurate and dignified memorials I can. What we record becomes history, and a record in someone else's family tree. We have a responsibility to do a good job of it. It's a privilege and honor."

Thank you for taking the time to read this

Martha Jane Wagner
In all my father's notes etc she is listed as Martha Jane. I figure he probably knew as she did not die till 1948. Also on 1880 Census in Edison, Furnas, Nebraska--Stump-Benjamin 35 & a farmer, Catharine 36, Martha J. 15, Mary E. 13, Frances R. 9, Malinda A. 6, Melissa 3, Jesse 1. Maybe she is confusing Mary E., her sister. She was Mary Ellen Archer and she is buried right beside my parents. Also on Indiana Marriages 1811-1959,I have three marriage applications listing her as Martha J.(including her and Albert's marriage.) Did she say where she found her information?

Thanks for the transfer of Walter Gonwa's memorial at Lyman Twp. Cemetery. I'll be happy to transfer again to a family member if they so request.

Omer Stump
HI Linda,

May I ask if you are related to Omer Stump Jr. ?

My wife is a great grand daughter of Omer Stump Sr and Lula Brading Stump and used to visist them in Florida. Omer Sr was a Barber for over 50 years in Brightwood, Indy. My Wife Sondra did talk to Omer Jr some years back and he wanted us to come and visit him on the west side near speedway.

Just wanted to ask real quick, If so then you are both related.

Take Care

Linda: I found you have quite a few Stump memorials so I figured Lydia was related to you. I transferred the memorial.

Risdon Mumford
Hi - I would like to verify with you that Risdon Mumford is or is not buried in Knox Co. MO I know that his wife Zipporah is but I didn't know if the memorial to Risdon was put on simply because information was known about him or if in fact he is buried there. Data in indicates that he died in Worcester Co. MD ca. 1836.

thanks for your help.
