RE: Hazel Elliott Larimer
Hi John,
I think you're right. Just requires more research.
I appreciate the update.

I know you've done a lot of research on the Elliott line. So do you believe that Hazel married a Larimer, like the one that is causing my confusion?

Thank you.

RE: Hazel L Elliott and Larimer
Hi John,
You are absolutely right. Wrong Hazel. I have revised my family tree.
Do you know if and who Hazel Elliott married or when she died?

Thank you.

RE: Evelyn Polhemus
You are welcome again. When I get a good day now that I know the right cemeteries I will check for headstones.

RE: Clark Polhemus
John - Thank you for contacting me regarding the duplicate memorial for Clark Polhemus. I created it as a result of walking the cemetery and looking for markers without Find a Grave records for that cemetery. Now that the memorial you created lists that cemetery, I moved the picture to it and deleted the memorial I created.

Thanks for your detailed message - it made this update very easy.

RE: Coradel Virginia (Wade) Jared
Thanks for the very thorough reply, John. I do not currently know of a connection between myself and the McCord family. I have a book on the Wade family which has lots of information on Coradel's ancestors along that line. If you would like a PDF copy of the book, just let me know. Kind regards, Dan

Coradel Virginia (Wade) Jared
Hi John,

I was curious as to whether you are related to Coradel (Find A Grave Memorial# 13978656). While going through the Revolutionary War pension file of George Wade Jr. (my fourth great grandfather), I noticed a copy of a letter she had mailed in 1917 requesting George's pension information. This prompted me to do a little research on Coradel after finding her record in the Wade family of Monongalia County book, which subsequently lead me to her memorial here. Someone in Monongalia County has graciously offered to help try to locate the burial location of George Wade Jr. in Liming Cemetery, so I was trying to check for any new bits of information which might help with this endeavor.

Thank you,

Dan Stone
