|dtreat||RE: Arthur Nickerson, 120521988|
Hi, Judi. I have barely scratched the surface of the Nickerson connections. It would help a lot if they didn't have the same names, and didn't all live in the same place, following the same occupations! Aaargh! I see why my husband is letting ME do all the research. If and when I find out anything interesting, I will let you know. (I did find Elish Doane, Jr and Mehitable Nickerson, great grandparents of Zemirah and Elkanah Nickerson are listed in "Mayflower Births and Deaths" at http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=mayflowerbd&h=29562&indiv=try. See if this is actually your connection with Sarah Hogue.) Regards, Diane

|Anna Schultz||RE: Simcox's at Patoka|
Your welcome, sorry but I had taken these last year and forgot to add the memorials and photos. Maybe that was a good thing because I couldn't find them in the folder where I thought I had put them which led me back down to Patoka to redo them and I found James Walter on the other side. Everything happens for a reason.
|Tony M.||RE: re Baudin|
The graves being above ground have nothing to do with the water table. If you go to google maps you will see that Gamboa Cemetery is on a "Morro" a big rock/hill. There are some early paintings of the cemetery showing it in its original form back in the early 1800's. It was a lot closer to the beach then but progress has put a few roads and buildings between it and the sea. The cemetery is surrounded by a favela (some may refer it to a slum area) but like all favelas in Rio they command the best views because they are up high on the rock. Some graves do go down in the soil but only a certain distance as there is just solid rock under them. Most graves are on an annuity basis in Rio, although some are on perpetuity basis also. Hence those that are on an annuity basis often are reused, because payments stop, by later burials hence why there are no records of graves for some people. When people are "buried" their bodies are generally sealed inside these "vaults" and sometimes, after seven years the bones are removed and put in an ossory box and placed elsewhere. Some cemeteries (not Gamboa) also cremate the remains. There are a number of difficulties for genealogists tracing graves (generally) but in countries that have this removal/reburial practice then it is very problematic. Cheers Tony

|Ed Smith||St Stanislaus Deaths 1957|
Thanks SO MUCH for all your work!! The last few updates you requested caught my eye in that they all died in 1957 and all died at the Modesto State Hospital. The hospital was located on Blue Gum where part of the MJC campus is located now. Looks like 1957 was a bad time to be an inmate there. Oh well, Thanks again for all your updates and photos.

Thank you so much. You went above and beyond the call -- good picture and amazing info about their gravesites. Will have to get the family together to remedy the absence of marker for Burnette's. Thanks again.

|Larry King Jr.||Albert Abdullah|
Thank You once again for locating the area where Albert Abdullah is buried (no marker). I appreciate the time you took to search and asking the caretakers for verification on his final resting place.

|Mary Denzinger||RE: Samuel Hogue|
You are very welcome for the Hogue photos. I posted Lucretia's also as you requested. We did have a bad snowstorm here yesterday. I had extra time after mass today and found the grave in about 5 minutes.
If I can be of further help, please let me know.
|David Reid||Gravesite picture|
Thank you for the photo of my great grandmother Sarah Houston's gravestone. This helps solve a puzzle as her name and dates also appear on her husband's grave in Oregon. I am now going to assume, after receiving this picture, that her remains are there in Modesto.
Thanks again for your time and kind favor.
Hi! I took those photos years ago and have no recollection of the headstone. Unfortunately it was an inexpensive type and did not wear well, so the dates are very blurred. I did poke around and found her death certificate, which gives her birth as 1911. I did not note from whence I found the 1904 birth year I had originally posted. I think it was from someone's family tree, but I do not see that tree still on line. Looking at the headstone, I could convince myself that it says either 1901, 1904, 1911, or 1914. I have decided to go with the date on the death certificate. Hope that helps. I have added the certificate to her memorial, if you wish to see it.
