RE: Re: Cousins!
The Reverend Benjamin Corson and Susan Elizabeth Dungan Corosn were my husband's fourth great-grandparents, not mine.

RE: Summers, John Paul
It probably would of helped if I completed the last step where you can add a caption - that's what happens when a person tries to do too many things at once. It's been sitting undone for a little while. Should be there now.

Summers, John Paul
My name is Brent and I live in Godfrey, IL just down the road from the Bethany Cemetery where John Paul Summers is buried. I have posted the gravestone picture you requested. I must admit that you and another gentleman are my first pictures as a volunteer. Being a newbie, I never gave it much thought so did not go very prepared. There was some dirt caked to the bronze name plate and even though I cleaned it off the best I could, and the pictures did come out looking good; there was still some room for improvement. If they are not up to your expectations I can go back and take a couple more. I also can email you some copies if desired. They are hi-res so quite large. You can let me know.

I see you are also looking for some gravestones in the Oakwood Cemetery. I can hunt for those also because I am about the same distance in the other direction from that cemetery. I will tell you that it is very large and that search might take me a little while. Just some added trivia. Robert Wadlow, the world record holder for the tallest man on record, is also buried at Oakwood. He was almost 9' tall and when you see the space his grave-site takes up it is amazing; even for those who have spent there lives here.

Ann Stockton Meyer
Possible Kinship
My name is Elizabeth Ann Stockton Meyer, daughter of Adrian Ernest Stockton, who was a first cousin of Shirley Stevens Hovar. Adrian's mother, Eliza Jessieman Stevens Stockton and Shirley's father, John Eston Stevens were brother and sister.

I noticed that you are also interested in genealogy and I would like to find out if I have any information that might be helpful to you in research of your family, specifically the Stevens branch. I have several photos taken before the 1920's that might be helpful.

Hello Shirley,
I wonder if you might recall how you got the information for this listing for Samuel Needham. Another member who tried and failed to fulfill a photo request for this listing pointed out that it is almost identical to another listing in Sanborn Cemetery, St. Joseph County, MI. The other listing is located here:
Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi Michael,

I believe I got the info from I will go ahead and delete mine.

Mary Hickman Magister
Yes I did check both names inasmuch as the cemetery office informed me her burial was actually listed in their records as Hickman, not Magister (though they were aware of the Magister name). I also checked for her husband; cemetery records show he (Hickman)is buried there, but could not find a stone for him either.
