Memorial# 23913884 Lavina Flory
Thank you for the suggestion on Lavina's memorial. The only way that the timeline would fit with Emanuel K being her father is if she was premature (which would explain the early death). He didn't marry his second wife Isabella Graybill until sometime in 1872. The timeline with Levi and Sarah Ann (Butterbaugh) Flory as the parents fits perfectly with the children before and after.

I will try to take a trip out to the cemetery this weekend and see how the markers are arranged to see if that gives me any clues about her parents.

I'll also check my uncle's copy of the Flory genealogy to see what it says. It has been a couple of years since I added it's information to my database and I didn't reference it if I got the information for Lavina from there.

RE: James Peter Cackler #65691293
I have no clue as to the discrepancy on the gravestone.
All census records from 1880 to 1930 show his birth year of 1871-72, as does the California death index which says Birth 23 Aug 1871, Death 24 Aug 1944, Place Fresno, Mother's maiden name Nicewonger. Other sources show mother's name Catharine Nyswonger.
Extensive family tree is in Ancestry.
By having this conversation posted on FindAGrave, maybe one of the family members will post an answer to this.

RE: Floyd Beard Dearing #66654982
Lou, Floyd Lowry Beard is the daughter of John Otey and Martha Beard. She married Richard Adolphus Dearing on Nov. 18 1885. I have sent an edit to link them as husband and wife. Thanks so much for letting me know. I have obits of Floyd and Richard, although not the best quality I can email to you if you want. I have lots of info on their families if interested. Thanks, Becky

L. John Greridon in Gettysburg Nat'l Cemetery
Hi Lou,

This burial is actually John Creardon at Gettysburg National Cemetery. He already has a memorial page set up for him. Many names are spelled incorrectly, and a great many memorials have been set up using the wrong names. I just wanted you to be aware of the problem with names in the cemetery here.

Thanks very much,

Thanks for locating Ancil and Lillie Oliva Rankin Gregory. I have sent information to the creator of the pages and have deleted mine.

Thanks, Ron

Auten family portraits
Lou is it possible you would have pictures of any of George Auten's children, Ovando, John W., Edward of Mattie (Auten) Hoxworth that you could add to their sites or know of someone who might? Thanks, Baxter

Madge Marie (Auten) Snuggs
Dear Lou, I have been working on the Auten family for some time. Most recently, I am trying to track down photographs of Madge Marie Auten's father, John W. Auten, as well as Madge's grandfather, George Auten, for the Princeville, Illinois Historical Society. George served in Co. K of the 86th Illinois during the Civil War from Princeville and though I believe there must be pictures out there of him in uniform, at this point, I'd be thrilled to see pictures of him as an old man. He died in 1906. Can you tell me how you are related and if you have even heard of, seen, or have pictures of John W. Auten or especially, George Auten that could be added to their sites. Looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Baxter
