RE: Thank You I will share your thanks with my hubby, Jim. He is the photographer. We were successful in getting some awesome pics for others, but my genealogy guest was less than delightful. I however, did prove that the 16 graves with my family surname are not my direct ancestors, so i guess that was a good thing. it just set me back a ways. Anyway, we were very happy that good came from our visit.
There were a couple of great books in the nearby library with history of some of the farm families in the area, so if you haven't you might want to check out the one on Chckasaw County. Best wishes, Deb
Clements / Miller Thank you for taking the photograph of the cemetery marker for Hugh H. Clements and his wife Mary Catherine Miller at Cedarville Cemetery. This will be a nice addition to the genealogy research I am doing / have done on the Clements family fron eastern Ontario, Canada. - 2ulips
RE: Rebecca Gaskill No, I'm not familiar with any cemeteries in Philadelphia. I noticed the error in the book too for Anna... the book says "widow of", but her stone says "wife of" Benjamin, and I've never come across a mistake like that. Hmmmm...
RE: William M Groff I was bound and determined to find them! LOL! It was like a mission! There are Groff's in just about every cemetery around here (Trinity, Lake View, Bridgeport, Eglington) if the Hansons want to research that line. I'll send you those pictures as soon as I can. ps Where is Anna's husband Benjamin Hanson buried?
William M Groff I'm still trying to find William and his wife. I found this in old church records, not sure what it means. Rich. [Nov. 3, 1833 Joseph Batten & Wm. M. Groff withdrew from the communion of the church & were removed therefrom as our Charter contemplated (that) none but communicants (serve) as officers or even members of the corporation — We therefore consider them, viz: Joseph Batten & William M. Groff as no longer entitled to Seats in this body as members thereof.]
RE: Mary Hughes Hale or Mary Hale Hughes Hi. Thank you very much. I just plain forgot to look at the 1875 census on familysearch.org, so I really appreciate that. Also the info about historical sources in Herkimer. I have been assuming that Anna was a sister, but I certainly could be wrong, wrong, wrong!
You may have noticed that two memorials have been created for this woman. It looks like you think Hale is the maiden name and Hughes is the married name. Do you have any corroborating evidence? I have found Daniel Dewitt Hughes with a wife named Mary on the Trenton, Oneida census, but that's all I've come up with as a lead.
I appreciate anything you're willing to share. And thankx for getting into this cemetery and getting photos.
