Miles Reed - Incorrect Death Date
Miles Reed, buried in Sunset Cemetery, Manhattan, Riley Co., KS. You show he died 30 Dec 1912. His death record scan shows he died 13 Dec 1912. The Manhattan Daily Nationalist Newspaper, dated 13 Dec 1912, Fri, pg 1; says he died this morning. The same Newspaper dated 19 Dec 1912, Thurs, pg 1; mentions his funeral service was held at the Methodist church in Manhattan, Sunday 15 Dec 1912. I like to have at least different sources to prove a fact for my genealogy work.

Hi Aaron, I've submitted links to John's parents - how they ended up in Idaho (mother) and San Francisco (father) and John in Muscatine I haven't figured out but I have verified they are his parents. Thank you for creating the memorials and posting the photos.

Hi. My great grandfather is AUSTIN W BLAKE. You have his son listed on his memorial but not my grandmother VESTA Catherine Blake. Eldon W. Blake was her brother. I used the # and added him on to Vesta's memorial. Thanks

George Kennett Blake #19296472
George is my 6th gr-grand uncle and his parents are my 7th gr-grandparents. Recently, I came across a Blake family DNA research that will be of interest to you - I've referenced this research and findings on my website which is contrary to a lot of current thinking about Theophilus' origins.

As a relative I invite you to visit my website and to submit any additional info or corrections.

RE: Blake Cemetery
Aaron, back in 1979 my family moved from Washington state to Ohio. The first summer we lived there, my parents took us to West Virginia to see the Blake homestead and cemetery. When I was 12, we moved away from Ohio, and I am now 42. I recently scanned the Polaroids and submitted them to both FindAGrave and When my mom took those pictures, she never imagined how many people could benefit from them down the road.

I seen the family picture on his memorial page & I was wondering if you knew the names of all the people? I have that pic & I don;t know who's who. Tom & my g grandfather George are the only ones I know, plus I was sent about 6 pictures & maybe you could idenify them for me.

Esgher Blake memorial
Hello! I was at Cedar Bethel Cem, Louisa Co, IA a while ago and saw the monument for James and Escher Blake - children. Could you make the correction on her memorial for her name? It should read "Escher" instead of "Esgher". Thank you! JWag

Baby Barngrover
You posted a photo of a stone for her in Riverview in Cowley County, KS. I have walked this area often and just realized there is an inscription on the back of the stone (the front is PMB) and it is Bradberry. Pauline Bradberry is buried in Plot 8 of Section I. This is where this stone is. Baby Barngrover is in Plot 6 of I which is north of 6 a couple of plots. Waldo Turnage is also in 6 and it is quite a bit north of the PMB stone. Would you please delete your photo and I will post a photo of the Plot 6. There is no stone for Baby Barngrover as far as I can tell. Thanks, Linda
