Anthony and Matilda Mills
I just want to thank you for provided the research for the two persons above. I am a Mills by marriage, and appreciated being able to see the censuses which included Matilda's census from Ireland.

I added a picture of the two of them.

They are my husband's grandparents, although they died so young, both were dead by the time his father was only 8.

James CONCANNON, Find A Grave Memorial# 82780973
Concannon, James, Feb. 20, 1894, husband of Mary, nee Green, brother of Maggie and Kate, aged 33 yrs., native of Co. Roscommon. Funeral from resid., 3000 Archer ave. to St. Bridget's Church thence to Mt. Olivet (1) The Chicago Daily News, 1878-1902, funeral notices in Tom Cook, Chicago’s Irish Families 1833-1910.

This looks like it may be Johnnie CONCANNON's father, James' death notice. It does mention Mary's maiden name, GREEN.

I will mention that there is no Mary CONCANNON listed in Tom Cook's index. That doesn't mean that there isn't a death notice for Mary in the Chicago Daily News, only that her death notice probably didn't mention where she was born in Ireland. That was the primary flag for selection in Tom's index.

Again good luck with your research,

John CONCANNON, Find A Grave Memorial# 82785752
Concannon, Johnnie, aged 2 yrs., 9 mos., 6 days, son of James and Maria, natives of Co. Roscommon. Funeral from resid., 2899 Archer ave to Mt. Olivet June 10, 1889. ( 1 ) The Chicago Daily News, 1878-1902, funeral notices in Tom Cook, Chicago’s Irish Families 1833-1910.

I hope knowing where Johnnie's parents are from, Co. Roscommon, will assist you in bridging the Atlantic.

Best of luck with your research,

Samuel Burr 7998075
Hi! I was wondering how you were able to connect Samuel Burr as father to Walter Burr? Walter's parents were Samuel Burr and Eleanor (Elenor) Sherwood. I have 1834 in my file, but I didn't put a source (dumb move on my part!). There are so many Burrs, this is my direct line, and I'd like to be sure I document it carefully. Thank you so very much!

I apologize for error with a recent edit request. Lydia's parents are Wilson and Elizabeth Archer. I haven't yet located them on findagrave. I don't understand how I got confused and matched her with her mother-in-laws parents. But I obviously got crossed up. I try to be so careful.
Please remove the links to those to individuals, David D. Ackerman and Rachael Tallman, they are not her parents. Thank you for your patience.

Memorial # 8018636
Hello LMJ:

I would greatly appreciate it if you would be so kind as to add a little additional information regarding Arthur Platt's service in the 48th New York Infantry during the civil war.

Enlisted and mustered into service September 14th, 1864, at Tarrytown. As "substitute" was forwarded October 2nd, 1864, from Hart Island (Bronx), joined for duty October 16th, 1864, wounded at Battle of Wilmington (NC), February 13th, 1865, at U.S. General Hospital, at Wilmington, unknown duration. Mustered out of service, September 1st, 1865, at Raleigh, NC.

In regard to the birth date I previously sent in an edit, that was based on a back calculation from the date of death, based on his age given as 34 years, 6 months, and 19 days... please feel free to do your own math, should you so choose.

Thank you for your effort in maintaining Uncle Arthur's memorial.

Teacher Sleuth
I sent you an edit request, asking for you to link Matilda Hallet Leviness (76219113) to her daughter, Clementine Leviness (16958537)). You denied the request. I thought it would be obvious that Thirza Vottier (6219113) was incorrectly linked. Matilda Hallet Leviness has the digit 7 at the beginning of her memorial number. It was obviously accidentlly omitted when the number was entered.You'll notice that Clementine's father remarried after her mother died in 1886. That's why Clementine has a sister almost 30 years older. Thirza Vottier was not even alive when Clementine's sister was born.

Rick Rollins
Josephine Palmer
After Arthur's death, she married Leroy B. Stuart on 3 Feb 1973, in Danbury, Connecticut.

The Connecticut death index shows her, Josephine A. Stuart, as passing away on 3 Aug 1977 in Danbury.

If you look at the Social Security applications and claims index for her sons Joseph Edward Palmer and Arthur Cornell Palmer, you see the parents listed as Arthur W. Palmer and Josephine A. Cornell.

What information do you have that contradicts this?

Nancy C "Nan" Andrews #114638213
I was photographing the pictures of Andrews Cemetery up in Santa Fe area and one of the persons is this Nancy. I already put the photos on your page. Could you move it to the right cemetery using the "Burial: [Edit]" button. All you have to do is click on the edit, click "Continue", click "Search for the cemetery" (the name should be there aready) and select the Andrews Cemetery in Maury County that has 69 names in it and hit "Save changes" in the button below. After that, I'll delete my duplicate.

Re the above, Memorial #38487321, wife of David Ackerman (1694-1760)

Thanks for all your great info. You may not be able to verify this.

All Ancestry trees show her death as 1747 -- based on Family Data Collections -- which are not necessarily accurate.

Yours is the only record showing her death date as 1750. Do you, by chance, have documentation?

Thanks, regardless.

Concannons in Mt. Calvary, Leavenworth, KS
Hello, LMJ,
Thank you for all your work placing so many of our ancestors on this site! I appreciate all that you have done and are doing.

Have you yet determined your connection to the Concannons? If you find you are not a member of our family, I wonder if you would transfer them to my care. Martin James and Anne are my great grandparetns.

Thank you!

Sorry to send you so many edits, but if you put "Charles" in the search engine, these people will not be found, as they have been entered as "Chas." :)
