Bio Photo My current project involves the siblings and children of Revolutionary War Veteren David Skinner (1742-1814) of Marlborough, CT, and Geneseo, NY.

Photos: If you use one of my photos please send me a thank you email. If you can figure out some way to get money for pictures of gravestones then you are a financial genius and deserve what you can get. Again, please send me a thank you note. If it's a lot of money please send me a 15% commission. :)

Rev Benjamin Ellery Hale
Regarding Rev Benjamin ELlery Hale, Find A Grave Memorial# 79704465.

THere is another daughter, Sarah Marie Hale, Find A Grave Memorial# 134710585.

In an short book, written by grandson, Frank William Thaxter titled "Recollection of Half a Century - The 'A' Class of Iowa Falls", 1909, THaxter provides a short biography of ten men who graduated high school at Iowa Falls, Iowa. Frank WIlliam THaxter was one, GEorge Ellery RIchardson (my great grandfather) was another. In the book he speaks to his family's travel from Massacusetts to first Batavia, Illinois.

The trip took place in 1853 and included: my gr. gr. grandparent's (Joshua Richardson and wife Sarah MArie Hale)family; the family of William Thaxter (and his new wife, Elizabeth Hale died in 1852); and the Benjamin Ellery Hale family.

Here, at least the Joshua Richardson and Sarah Marie Hale family started a "car manufacturing business" at Batavia. I can only assume this referred to rail cars. It was not sucessful. This family moved on to first Independance, Iowa and them by 1865, Iowa Falls, Iowa.

Thaxter reports his family moved on to Minnesota where census records show they were in 1860 and later to Iowa Falls, IA.

There was no further mention of the Benjamin ELlery Hale Family.

George R. Chapman
I visited Brushy Fork Cemetery today (Memorial Day) 2014, and photographed the stone for George R. Chapman. If you still would like a copy of this photo, email me at: carljamesheperd@yahoo.com and I'll send it to you.

RE: Elijah NORTON - Greenwich NY
The stone states she is Elijah's wife, and it is located right next to his. I have posted the photo. Glad to help. I agree that anything posted to a memorial should be shared with the memorial manager.

RE: Hale family in Oak Woods
Hi.

I did get a pic of George's famous stone and I added it but the public won't see it for a day or so. I think find a grave people will have to confirm it. After I posted it that's the message that I got.

I did get photos of the other graves, the Pope's, and I made memorial for them...

James Hale Pope, James Brown Pope, and Mary I Hale. You can check them out.

Glad to help!

Gary

RE: Niles Settlement Cemetery
You are welcome. John and Elizabeth Stone were my 3g grandparents. Interesting story. I drove 1200 miles from Georgia, drove up and down the road unable to locate the cemetery. Seeing a lady walking down the road I stopped and asked. She told me the unmarked cemetery was back on her property, down threw the pasture, over the creek, up the hill, and behind the woods. After finding it I just had to take photo's of all of the headstones! I never would have located the cemetery without stopping the lady and asking for help. And fortunately it was the right lady!

Luling cemetery
I wanted to let you know that I drove out to the cemetery, and after walking around for 2 hours found not one of the grave sites. I went to the Luling Chamber of Commerce, and they gave me the name of the cemetery association chairman, Mr. Mike Hendricks (he is also Mayor of Luling). I called him (cell - 512.738.1097). He told me that there were 7,000 graves in the cemetery, and they've only made a little headway on cataloging graves. I went to the city library, and they gave me the name of someone who might be able to help - Randy Engelke (830.875.5216). I have not contacted Mr. Endgelke.
Luling is about 20 miles east of me. If you want to try to see if you can get them to give you a location of the grave, I will be glad to go and take a photo of it! - Janet
