RE: Alfred Courtney
The 1870 Census lists Alfred at age 32 = 1838. 8/11/1838 is the year that I have of a birth cert., that lists his parents. He also changed his name during his Naval Service in the Civil War. Therefore, after extensive genealogical research, & the fact that I am his direct descendant, I am sticking w/ 1838 as his birth year.

However, thank you for your input.

I do not see how you could be a direct descendant of his in any way. Correct? You just have the same last name, but you are of no relation to Alfred Courtney.

RE: Alfred Courtney
Hi Stan,
What year do you have? I am a direct descendant & have bern researching him for years. My Uncle remembers his Great Grandfather's funeral in 1929. I believe that his birth name was actually Dennis A. Courtney, & he lied about his age in order to go to sea as a teen. My Dad's Grandparents are buried in the same plot.
Any info. you have would be appreciated.

Joseph & Anne Courtney
I see that you have the same last name. Are you related to the Courtney's? Joseph & Anne are my great grandparents. My mother, Dorothy was the daughter of Clem & Corean Courtney. Michelle Hillier

Duplicate memorial
Hi Stan, Edna June Audet Wolfe has 2 memorials. Management of #97304684 was just turned over to me and I found yours as I was doing more research on her birth date. Your memorial was created a few months before the one created by Dick and Debbie who are no longer active (that is why I requested management). Edna June was my aunt. Her husband Wayne is my father's younger brother. Your information is more complete. I am not asking for her memorial to be turned over to me, I just want to know what to do about my duplicate. Nancy

I just added two memorials for these folks today at East Lawn Cemetery. If you would like to change their burial location on yours, I can add the photos I took to yours and remove my entries. Whatever you would like to do. VV

RE: Sara Patterson Long b 1881
Thank you! All your work will save me a great deal of time. And I appreciate this so very much. I am related to Jane Todd Patterson Courtney's sister Mary Esther, who stayed behind in Illinois. The extended family search is helping me with another project which is to develop stories from all my ancestors showing how the immigrants came, and through the generations took advantage of realizing the American dream. It is not to publish of course, but rather as a gift to my grandson. God bless you. I may be in touch again if that is OK.

Sara Patterson Long b 1881
This Sara Patterson I believe to be the daughter of William and was born in 1849 so she is the granddaughter, not the daughter. Possibly she was named after Sarah Patterson b 1854, a sister of William James McClelland Patterson. Thought you might wish to know this. Your entries have been very helpful to me as this is my mother's great uncle's family. Thanks so much! We are very excited to put some of these pieces together for my mom who did not meet those that left Illinois.
