Christopher Koch, Jr.

Hi Kathy,

There is no burial cemetery listed for Christopher Koch Jr., in his obituary. The one I have a memorial for at Fort Plain Cemetery is his father, Christopher Koch Sr.

Kathy, I think we have corrected the errors and Marty is going to transfer picture. However, I have transferred the memorial to you for safekeeping by her friend, as it should be! Thanks for getting this to us.

Dear Kathy,

Thanks so very much for transferring Ralph and Louise to our account.

The Taylor and Glines families are important parts of my wife's ancestry.

Best Regards,

Real metal tinsel and popcorn garland on the Christmas tree! Those were the days, except those C7 Christmas lights that would all go out when one bulb burned out.

Samuel Baker updates added.

RE: Transfered graves
Oh Kathy,

I wish there would be something I could do.

Please hold on to your memorials in a couple of months you might feel different and there is no rush in doing any corrections at the moment.

Thinking about you a lot Love Ingrid.

Henry Damon Eckler
Hi Kathy,

This is a long story:

I had Henry's gravestone photo for just about a year and could not find out who he was. Then Find A Grave member PAUL put in quite a few photo requests in Springfield, we had an issue with Edy Ann Krum Eckler.... anyway he mentioned to me to A. Ross Eckler and his 1970 book about the Eckler's so I went ahead and asked him about Henry buried next to Isaiah and he told me the rest.
If you read through the last couple of days of my messages you can see our communication.

Also a little more info I found on if you have access to it look for the family tree Et Cetera - Eckler, Baber, etc owner is jensencje.
There is a great story about Henry Damon and Georgianna. It is under copyright, otherwise I would copy it for you. I did send the owner of the tree a message if I could use the story on Henry's memorial on Find A Grave. When I get a response I will let you know.

Also in that story it is mentioned that Henry Damon Eckler's grave is marked only by the stone "Henry" and it is on the left of his son Isaiah's headstone and that it had been verified by cemetery officials that this was the grave of Henry Damon Eckler.

I hope this explains a bit, it was a very exciting day for me now more so as I can give his memorial into family hands

Greeting from Richfield Springs Ingrid.
