Transfer of Memorials
Hi Becky,
Wow! I see you have added over 28,000 memorials to Find A Grave! Thank you soooo much for all of your hard work and effort! Those of us who don't live nearby our dearly departed depend on folks like you for our research. I was hoping that you would be willing to transfer the memorials of my ancestors to my management? Of course, if you are also a descendant, I completely understand. Here are the individuals that I am interested in: Rebecca Drusilla Swearingen Tomlinson (#84968251), Joseph Tomlinson (#84967807), Elizabeth Walker Swearingen (#84970500), Van B Swearingen (#84970325), Rebecca Isaac Walker (#84970789), Charles Walker (#84970675), Alice Major Walker (#84971052), Daniel Walker (#84970949).

Thanks again!
Sincerely,
Jessica (#47710482)

Daniel Doan, III Find A Grave Memorial# 67267753
Hi Becky. Just thought I would let you know that the death date for Daniel may be incorrect. I just found a record from Quaker Monthly Meeting which list Daniel's birth as 24 Eleventh month 1687. Prior to 1752 the Quaker 11th month was January! This followed the Julian calendar. It was not until 1752 that the 1st month became January.

Sorry Becky I put Elias Doan picture in wrong place can you remove it? I think only the manager can do this. I don't know how. Sandy

Becky:

Take a look at Memorial No. 181860916. One of the photos of the marker posted there looks strikingly similar to the photo you posted to Memorial No. 45331461. Memorial No. 181860916 is obviously a duplicate of Memorial No. 45331461. Good Gracious Ignatius has posted a cemetery deletion request for the incorrect "Maplewood Cemetery" of Lyons. I thought any complaint of photo-theft ought to be filed by the one stolen from.

Catherine Carberry Tedrow
Becky,
Would you please keep my name and email address attached to your Catherine Carberry Tedrow file? She is the only child of my Irish immigrant that we do not have a photo of. Perhaps during your genealogy endeavors you might run across one. If so, I would be deeply grateful for a copy.
Happy Trails,

Linda Tomlinson
Rachel Tomlinson Dau of Joseph
Hi Becky, My name is Linda Tomlinson. I'm researching the Tomlinson family and found a Find A Grave record that you posted for Rachel Tomlinson, daughter of Joseph Tomlinson, Find A Grave Memorial# 55628434.

You have Rachel Tomlinson's mother and Joseph's wife as Margaret Cook but I have a Quaker record that Rachel is the daughter of Joseph Tomlinson, son of Joseph Tomlinson, and Margaret, daughter of _______ Baker.

I am descended from Joseph Jr's brother, Richard.

You have her married to Moses Doan which might be true but I hesitate to assume it's correct unless I can resolve this conflict with her mother's name.

Mary S. Scott
Maria Anglemire Tedrow
Dear Becky,

Received your note with the biography data for Maria. I revised it a bit to clarify family members and relationships.

There is some confusion about the state where Maria was born. In the 1850 U.S. Federal Census, Maria's birthplace is also listed as New York but the 1880 U.S. Federal Census and her actual death record state she was born in Pennsylvania.

Part of the problem is that the family of Emmanuel Anglemire lived on the border between Pennsylvania and New York State for a while. I would have to review the information I have on this family to make a better determination. One of the problems seems to be that the family moved around a lot.

Emmanuel Anglemire never seemed to be in one spot for that long of a time.

I have a copy of the autobiography of Ephraim Anglemire and also the Civil War Pension Record for Ephraim and Daniel Tedrow. I will try to check out these sources for further confirmation.

Maybe we can compare notes in the future and see what we both know about Maria.

Best wishes,

Mary Scott

RE: Aaron S. Doan #127024655
Hi Becky! Aaron's wife, Naomi Barton, was my 3x great aunt. I got copies of their death certificates from the PA Archives because I could not figure out where they were buried either. They had five children; Myrtle, Grace, William, George and Ira. Aaron's death certificate states that he was 'handled' by H.J. Deckard, the undertaker in Marysville, (which was right down the street from Chestnut Grove Cemetery, and now owned by another family) but it says his place of burial is Harrisburg, PA, on October 30, 1915. I suspect he was buried in East Harrisburg Cemetery, since that is where most of the Doan family is as well. Their son, George, provided the information to the local registar and probably handled the arrangements. However, Naomi passed away before Aaron, and prior to her death, she was living in Marysville with their son, William, and his family. So her death certificate, with information provided by William, states that she was buried in Chestnut Grove in Marysville, on February 12, 1915. I would bet that William is buried in Chestnut Grove, too.
It is my understanding that the state keeps track of deaths, but the county keeps track of burials, so the only way to know for sure would be to check the records at the Dauphin and Perry County courthouses. Hope that helps!
