Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB OF A PERSON'S MEMORIAL TO SEND ME ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS. That way an e-mail comes to me with links to the person's memorial; if requesting links, please provide numbers of the memorials you wish to have linked. I try to check the memorials that I enter so that I do not duplicate any earlier memorials, but sometimes this happens.

I try to follow the Find A Grave rules regarding transfers unless the person is my relation. However, other transfers will be considered.

PLEASE DO NOT ADD BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION OR OBITUARIES IN A VIRTUAL FLOWER per Find A Grave Guidelines. If I find any in this area, I'll notify the administrators and ask that they be removed.

Find a Grave Guidelines can be found on the left side of this page by "clicking" on "Help with Find A Grave".

This is a very late but still heartfelt "THANK YOU" for providing the headstone photo for William Mooney (Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana). I truly appreciate it.

John S. Jones
Rita -

John S. Jones buried Daviess County is my 2nd great grandfather. The birth/death dates you have correspond with what I have in my records. However, I do not have any info in our family records of him being a civil war veteran, a marriage to McCafferty or a child with McCafferty. Only info I have is his marriage to Laura Gregory.
Thank you.

Hi Rita, Wish I had known about your photo request for Anna sooner. We are getting ready to move away from the Kansas City area in the next couple of weeks. I will try to get over to this cemetery if at all possible. It's probably about 45 min. away from me.
Best wishes, happy holidays!

Memorial 74578418 James Benjamin Whalen

I put in a request to link James Benjamin Whalen to his parents. You can see I have included part of a manuscript that proves his parents are Edward and Charlotte (Thomas) Whalen (posted on Edward Whalen Memorial #171705446). His gg granddaughter and I have been comparing what we know about our Whalen family and are trying to connect the family members so others searching Find A Grave will understand the relationships. We know 3 children survived their mother Charlotte (Thomas) Whalen when she died 8 Jan 1909 in New Albany, Floyd Co, IN at age 95 from her obits.

Friday, January 15, 1909

Mrs. Charlotte Whalen, widow of Edward Whalen, died last Friday afternoon as the home of her daughter, Mrs. William Greenaway, 1118 Shelby street, of the infirmities of old age. She was ninety-five years old and was a native of South Carolina. She leaves three children, Mrs. Greenaway, James Whalen, of Monroe City, Ind., and John Whalen, who lives in the west. She was a member of the Christian church. The funeral services were held Sunday afternoon from the residence and the body was taken to Sellersburg for burial.

Thanks for your help in connecting James Benjamin Whalen to his parents Edward Whalen Memorial #171705446 and Charlotte (Thomas) Whalen Memorial #63281316.

John Whalen "in the west" is my great grandfather and he is buried in IL next to his wife. He lived in Missouri at the time of his mother's death but was returned to Jefferson County, IL after his death near Sikeston, MO for burial. I have his death certificate and obit and photo of taken earlier. I have also photographed his gravestone and his wife's gravestone.

Iby May (Jones) Robinson
Dear Rita, I have sent several edits to amend the memorial for Iby May Robinson memorial#92526362
I have done a lot of research on her; census records, marriage records, death records etc. She is in the April 28,1910 Census-Harrison township, Daviess Co., Ind. Father-Milton C. Jones, Mother-Harriet J. Jones. She is listed as Ibbie M. Jones. There are marriage records: Dec.21,1913 Daviess Co., to Hamlet F. Robinson. Death Records
May 16,1916. And, Hamlet lists her death on his next marriage record. All this to amend a note you have for her that states incorrectly that she is the d/o James B. and Mary (Plummer) Robinson.
James and Mary didn't even get married until Dec.22,1893 and there is no record of her anywhere connected to them.
As always, thanks so much for your attention to the edits and for all you do. I just very much want you to know, that when I send edits, they are very well researched. Thanks again, Lily
