You're welcome. There are dates on Aaron's Memorial page. Not sure where they came from.

RE: Email

Thanks for letting me know. It happened yesterday, and it has been a nightmare to try to get things back to normal. I appreciate your letting me know.

RE: Jane H Schenck Van Horn

Thanks for your response. Josuha and Tobitha Van Horn are buried in the Union cemetery too. On Josuha's Find A Grave page is a picture of his and Tobitha's headstone. I meant Matthew's son James just can't find any info on him.

Thanks for the info you shared with me. I will keep searching.

RE: Jane H Schenck Van Horn

Thank you so much for the info you sent. Matthew and Nancy Van Horn are my gr gr gr grandparents and I couldn't find anywhere they had a child named William. I live about 3 hrs away from Loveland Oh and someday I would like to go to the cemetery and look around. One more question do you know anything about a Joshua and Tobitha Van Horn. I can't figure out if he is Matthew's son or brother. Also a son of Matthew James Van Horn I can't find anything about him. I have done the dna thing on and found some Van Horn connections but nobody is getting back to I appreciate you taking the time to send me this info.

Thank You

Jane H Schenck Van Horn
Hi my name is Karen Van Horn Covalt. I am trying to find info on Jane H Schenck Van Horn. Are you related to her? I can't find where her husband William Van Horn is buried or her children. Just curious if you know anything.

Thank you

RE: William Hayes Simpson
I think I should delete mine, since you have something to indicate he is there (obit). Please put the obit back on yours.

Don't worry about the photo request; it might take awhile. It is the rainy season here all winter and we just had 2 snow & ice storms last week. Volunteers are busy with other things (Christmas), plus the weather, so many of us won't be going out graving much until spring.

RE: William Hayes Simpson
From the time frame, I probably got his name from a cemetery list online, but I can't seem to find it now. We photographed the whole cemetery in April 2010, but apparently did not find a stone.

Stones from the 1800s are hard to find; they either didn't have one or it was too worn or broken to read or buried under the sod by now.

I see you entered him in Mt Hope Cemetery with a photo request. We also photographed all of Mt Hope in May 2009, but did not find a stone there either. It doesn't hurt to have someone else take a look. Occasionally we will miss a stone.

This website does not list him in Mt Hope either.

Do you want me to delete him in Anderson Lone Fir? Or should we wait for the results of the photo request in Mt Hope?

Re: Henry Waterfield
Judy -- I just "shared" information from Ancestry on Henry's death. Here are more details: he died in Hailey, ID, 26 Jan 1939. Info is from the Idaho Death Index, 1890-1964. This came right up in a search on Ancestry.

RE: Aubrey Briggs
Hi Judy -- I will be happy to "read" Henry's gravestone to verify the year of death. It might be 2 weeks before I am in that part of town. Just let me know if that is OK. Hope you are having a glorious Fourth!

Aubrey Briggs
Hi Judy -- I will be uploading the photo of Aubrey's marker you requested. I do want to let you know that you will see it is a double marker for Aubrey and Beatrice Briggs. Beatrice does not have a death date. I checked with the cemetery office and she is not buried with Aubrey or anywhere else at Fairmount. Just let me know if you have any questions.

RE: George Hornage
I believe you can download the book for free via the Google Play store. Just look up Google Books, "The Valley Road" by Arthur Wheeler. :-)

G. Hornage via Stockton Rural Cemetery History (facebook)
This is what my FB post says:

"George Hornage
Born: June 10, 1859
Died: July 11, 1929

Findagrave notes state that George Hornage worked as clerk with J.W. England and resided at San Joaquin between Sonora and Church in Stockton. It also mentions that he was a compositor at the Herald.
I found him in the 1891 Stockton Directory listed in Real Estate, Notary Public and Collector at 274 Main Street. His residence was at 115 California Street, Stockton."

I couldn't find any biographical info in the old book, it spoke more about transportation history in within areas of the state, and althoug there are a lot of photos of various people, there isn't alot of info on each person individually. I wish I had more on him, sorry.

RE: George Hornage
I checked my FB page, I realize most of what his Findagrave memorial notes is what my FB says. Let me see if I can find more for you though. I think I still have access to that book. I can check to see the biographical info in it for you. Are you related through his father's mother, Margaret Simpson?

RE: Martha Wilson
I don't know who the sexton might be.. And the cemetery isn't so large to walk it. My husband and I enjoy the walking actually. We did see some stones for Rhodes though. So many of the old stones were barely legible or worn away. And as I stated there appeared to be gaps in the rows of stones. Some old ones were broken or partially buried with little markings left.

There were 5 other requests for stones that were very old and sadly we couldn't locate even one.

Judy, hope you don't mind that I sent you the memorials. There is so much incorrect information out there I don't know where to begin. All info I found about Wm. indicated he was born in OH. ???
