RE: Walter C. Gunn - Memorial # 57806683
Thank you for offering p, but actually I'm not. I simply did a local memorial that turned out to be one of those things where you find most of the family not memorialized, not linked and sadly seeming sort of forgotten. So my OCD kicked into overdrive and I connected the whole family --now if everyone will just follow up on my edits so my work's not in vain! It was a very large family. Best to You in your work and . . . Happy Trails, Nancy

Walter C. Gunn - Memorial # 57806683
Hi, Susann - I looked at his WWI Draft Registration and I also viewed the original in his own hand which clearly shows an 'a' in Claudy, and below this the 1910 census showing where as a boy the family called him Claudy. I know it's spelled "Cloudy" in some other places, but the spelling where he actually wrote his name himself showing very plainly the 'a' was what did it for me. I don't know if you're Family to him or not, but I made the suggestion because of his own handwritten name, and you can look perhaps and decide. Happy Trails, Nancy

RE: Abram B. Ringo
Hi Susann,
Thanks for responding. It's okay to leave it Eliza Barnes and for you to keep his memorial. I have a strong belief that is the right maiden name. I just thought maybe you knew something I didn't know. Actually, I was on Family Search when I saw Eliza E. Barnes, and the person noted that her source was "Find a Grave." Anyway, maybe someday I'll find something that will confirm or deny it. Thank You!

Abram B. Ringo
Hi Susann,
I am the great-granddaughter of Abram B. Ringo. His daughter Sarah Ann was born abt 1881. She always said she was an orphan, but knew her father's name was Abe Ringo from Texas. I have searched for many years now for her mother and I found Eliza E. as wife of Abram in the 1880 census. It seems highly likely that this Eliza may be Sarah's mother, but the 1890 census records were destroyed in a fire, and I have found nothing else to indicate what Eliza's maiden was. You have "Eliza E. Barnes." I'm wondering where you learned this. I would be so appreciative if you can give me any information on this, as it has been a mystery in our family for many years. Carol

I have just posted an image of the tombstone of Johnny Mack Chappell I found last week at at tiny cemetery at the corner of Memorial and Houston Avenue. You have him at Woodlawn Cemetery, but he has clearly been moved. I don't know what I should do at this point since I cannot find the cemetery in Findagrave, and the data probably should be changed to record this relocation. There is another stone there: Dee Brown Hancock, but she does not seem to be in Findagrave.

RE: Janell Whitby
You are welcome. We were all so young and so saddened by this tragic accident. The others did recover but probably looked at life in a different light. I hung on to the obituary and when I saw the beautiful tombstone Janell's parents had put up I felt more was needed about this young girls life.

I would love to take over Dennis Austin. But I have no idea how to transfer it over. Could you talk me through it?

I saw the post yesterday and this morning got the email link to your messages. Sure appreciate all that you have done. It is curious and funny that the Scimitar actually wrote me an email with the plot numbers and told me Thomas was next to a Wilbert Ray Fields. I am sure they have it wrong as you walked the cemetery and photograph the stones. Also because I never heard of a Wilbert Ray Fields. Thank you so much. Julie

Did you see a Wilbert Ray Fields next to Thomas? Any chance you have a photo you could post? I added George B. Fields plot information too. Guess he is a little ways away. Thanks for your time on this. Julie

Dear Susann:

Thank you for your help. Your link enabled me to get an actual copy of my great grandfather's interment listing.

I really appreciate it.

Dennis E Austin
Found Dennis's information that you had posted. I am not new to genealogy, but I still don't know all the ins and outs of Find A Grave.

Dennis was my great grandfather. I have been working (for years) on a theory that Minnie Daniels was buried in Denver, Colorado. The information you supplied was the very first bit of information that I was on the right track.

You mentioned that Minnie "was buried in Denver, Colorado, per a note in the plot record."

I was wondering where and how you found that plot record.

I would appreciate any help you could give me. And, by the way, are we by chance related? My grandmother was Minnie and Dennis's only child (Illda), but they both came from pretty large families.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

RE: Mary Aloyisius Riley Wintrop
Thank you! One more thing, her husband Charles J. Wright Sr. was not buried in the same cemetery, correct? and her parents aren't buried there either, right? We are trying to find her maiden name. Thanks again!

Hi, you have some extra info posted on Sidney James Loper's page. Are you familiar with his history/lineage? He's my husband's great-grandfather on his mother's side and I'm working on his genealogy. Would love to connect if you have already gone down that path.

I saw your photo and history of Camille Brown

I was her next door neighbor in Montgomery Alabama

from 1959-1974

She died in Houston when I was 15 but she had been very close to me and my family up until that point.

Very happy to have found her info

RE: Are you my cousin?
Hi, Susann,
I am not related to the Cron family (as far as I know) but the Archer family, members of which originally moved to Houston from Brownsville, Texas, shortly after the Civil War. They settled on Clay Avenue until the house was raised in the late '50's for the building of one of Houston's outer belts. My Susann would have had the maiden name of Clark and would probably be in her late sixties. Her mother would have been called Pat, though that was not her official given name. Pat would have had a sister named Florence, and Florence would have had a son named Randy. I was hopeful that you were the long lost cousin of my childhood. However, thank you for taking the time to respond to my query in such a prompt manner.
Sincerely, Oyce's daughter

Are you my cousin?
I am hoping that you are my cousin from Houston, Texas. If you are, I would be your cousin from Ohio. I have noticed the name "Susann" on many of the grave web pages for many of my relatives and; therefore, I am hoping that they are your relatives too. If we are related, I certainly would like to talk to you not only to catch up, but also to share information on the family. Now retired, I have finally found some time to devote to genealogy research. I just joined "Find A Grave " today with the main purpose of finding my cousin and be able to talk to her.
Sincerely, Oyce's Daughter
