Dana cemetery photo
I'm puzzled by the photo of the Dana cemetery sign. It appears to be the entrance to a cornfield. Were The headstones moved to a different area?

About Eliza Cecilia ?? McCoy #26577381
Cathy, I'm not sure why I'm paying so much attention to Eliza, but, nevertheless, I've stuck my nose into this: Since her Gravestone shows her name to be Eliza A. McCoy, yet her Find A Grave name is Eliza J. McCoy, could it be that the "J" is the first letter of her maiden name? I'm sure this is just a coincidence, but, since I dislike empty spaces, I habitually use JaneDoe for a female's last name as a placeholder in the absence of the real Maiden name (and similarly JohnDoe for a man's missing last name).

Best regards,

George Del Monte

Thank you again.

Abraham J. Endsley
Dear Cathy,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to documentation, Abraham J. Endsley was a member of this unit. This is confirmed by his gravestone.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but I want to eventually publish something. So, with your permission, I would like to use your photograph of the grave of Abraham J. Endsley (Find A Grave Memorial# 33500828). Please let me know if this would be acceptable.

Thank you, I appreciate your time.

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson

Richard Squire Denniss 1852-1939
Hi Cathy,

Greetings from England! I've just come across your photo of the grave of Richard Squire Denniss, 1852-1939, which you've shown as being in Mizpah Cemetery, Platteville, Weld County, CO. The plot reference is Row 7, Lot 65, Space 6.

Do you have any background on this person? I have a 3x great grandfather named William Denniss, who married a Frances Squire. There are many descendants in the Denniss family who all used the middle name "Squire", including a family who I believe emigrated to the USA in about 1872/3. If you have any information it would be great to hear from you.

Kind regards, Jane

Hi Cathy - In doing a little sleuthing for my friend I ran across this marker and found an answer we had been looking for. I believe you will find that this headstone is for two people.
Orville Robbins 1826-1896 (father of)
Earl Orville Robbins 1853-1888
Which would explain the 35 year old described on the stone with birth and death dates of 70 year old!
Let me know if you need more information. Thank you for posting this - you helped us solve a mystery.

RE: James W. Kelly
Hi Cathy,

Thank you for transferring the memorial. The number is #30532338.

James married Bertha Ola Patterson on January 4, 1899 in Franklin County Indiana. I have traced that line of Patterson all the way back to Arthur Patterson, born 1659 in Norther Ireland, died July 3, 1765 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

If you would like, I can give you access to view my page where you will find all of the Patterson's related to Bertha, Jame's wife and my great grandmother. Perhaps there would be useful information there for your husband.

my personal email is, please feel free to contact me there.

Thank you for finding my great grandfather's gravesite. If you would like to release the site, I will update with current information. If your husband is a Patterson, then we are related.
