Memorial# 90708022 William H Root

Hoping you can help me out. I'm researching the Franklin and Lucinda Pletcher Root family. They had no children of their own, but adopted William H. Stigenwalt (b. 1866) and his younger sister Effie. William later legally changed his last name to Root. Thought I had found him in census records married to Addie and living in Iola as did his adoptive parents, but this entry shows this William as Jacob Root's son. Do you have any information on William H. Stigenwalt Root? His adoptive mother's obituary has a little detail: Memorial# 88413625. Appreciate any help you can provide.

Gravesite photo request
MT. LEBANON PRIMITIVE BAPTIST CHURCH list burial records, and photos, unfortuantely there is no photo of the site you requested. I was going to check but I see someone else says they looked and were unsuccessful.

RE: Eliza Cates
Hi Bob,

I married a Cates, and did the Cates research for my kids. I was lucky to live in the area where they lived here in KY and met up with a few other researchers. I have uploaded a PDF with the tree for WE Cates. Unfortunately, I have not "verified" the information myself, but the people I got the info from were confident in their research, with records, etc. I do not doubt its validity.

Hope that helps.

Josiah Root
Your edit request is being declined because I cannot make Josiah Root 1733 - 1768, the father of Josiah Root 1733 1768.

Unfortunately, there is no marker for his grave. I took picture of the area where his grave is; I will post that.

ROOT, Gladys

The cemetery record for Gladys states she died 28Feb1922 at age 13y 7m 11d and the daughter of George. However, there is no record of a George ROOT buried in Woodlawn. Walked Park (section) "D" twice and did not locate a marker for Gladys. There is a ROOT marker though and is for Marvin E. and Ottilia G. Marvin 1878-1972 Age 92y. Ottilia 1882-1966 Age 84y. Have a photo of this stone marker if interested. There are a total of 20 ROOT entries in Woodlawn Cemetery records.

Augusta ROOT

Cemetery records have Augusta resting in Park (section) "A" also but did not, as of yet, locate a marker. Will do a third walk-through after searching for the other 128 requests in this cemetery.

"Infant" ROOT

In two walk-throughs of Park (section) "A", where the cemetery records state a possible Mary, d. Feb 4, 1888 is buried. Might she be near the nine (9) ROOT markers such as: Lydia, Charles, and Emily J.?
