Marshall Shifflett

I was wondering if I could use your photo of Marshall Shifflett's grave on my website

I was also wondering if you could shed some light on his death. I found that he was a Confederate solider in the 56th Virginia, and that he deserted twice. In some records he is listed incorrectly as a Federal soldier. In addition a local paper said that Mr. Shifflett came to Bureau county to locate relatives but was executed by mistake because they though he was a union deserter. If you have anymore information I would be thankful.

My name is Jon Purcell. I am indexing Iowa State Armed Forces Grave Registrations. I uploaded a record to Find-A-Grave for Ernest Leroy Thompson (150641258). I hope the information is useful and the upload is okay.

I noticed you left a flower on memorial. Wonder if you have a tie? If so, I'm currently working on family info. Please email!

Lancelot Walker
I have manage to locate a report of Lancelot Walker's death (Oskaloosa Herald 30 January 1902)

He was working at the Thompson-Walker mine 25 January 1902 when he was crushed between two timbers, the result of the inquest herd his death was as a result of his own neglect, he had not observed the precautions in hoisting coal in the mine.

Mattie (Marie Laura) Elwell
Hello: In reconstructing the life of Dr. W. A. Noyes (1857-1941) I see that you have 2 of his 3 wives listed on your memorial. Above is memorial name for his 2nd wife, (1864-1914). She married Noyes in 1903 (2 years after 1st wife died) and she died in 1914. He remarried in 1915 apparently to his 3rd wife Katherine H. Macy.(# 92711354). You have omitted wife #2 from your listing.
I would appreciate her inclusion in your memorial.
Now it looks as though a duplicate abbreviated memorial existed for Dr. Noyes which may be why Laura Elwell was lost as his 2nd wife for so many years.
Thanks for your assistance.

RE: Alexander Walker
Thanks for the message, there are no memorials to Alexander's parents William Walker died in 1871 and his wife in 1862, William was a coalminer and with so many children it is unlikely they would be able to afford memorials.

RE: Jesse Moxley
You are welcome. I had created pages for them and done some research but apparently hadn't searched without a location.

You had so many links attached that I just deleted the pages I had started. I love it when we can all work together!

Thanks for your email.

I have added your suggestion to his bio. That was from the cemetery records and your info was more accurate. Thanks.
