|Justin ||Marshall Shifflett|
I was wondering if I could use your photo of Marshall Shifflett's grave on my website http://bureaucountycivilwar.webs.com/
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 email@example.com!

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.

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.

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.
|Davd Walton||Alexander Walker|
Alex Walker was born at Netherton Northumberland son of William Walker and his second wife Jane Hall (1820-1862).
Jane Hall was a sister of Adam Hall (1814-1873)
who was my Great-Great Grandfather Alex Walker was cousin to my Great-Grandfather Lancelot Hall 1851-1911.
Alexander Walker emigrated in 1880 later his brother Lancelot (1856-1902) then sister Elizabeth (1851-1909 also emigrated.

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.
