RE: James Long
In regard to your inquiry about an obit or other info concerning the Longs...I am sorry that, other then what is posted on the monuments, is all I have. I do no research on monuments I post except for adding data that other members send along to me.

RE: James Walton aka "Peavine Jimmy"
Hi Stu, The Marion County Historical Society and the genealogy society referred us to you. Our names are Vern & Carrie Berg and, you emailed us that you are related to the Walton's through three different lines, you stated you know the Walton family and the Monnett's. Anyways, it was about a photo match up, because we have a collection of photos. To make a long story short, we don't want any of the information pulled, is their anything wrong with correcting data. You we're on Mary Brown's friends list, that is why we made contact. We have been sharing a free flow of information to the WSPRC Parks & historical societies, libraries, Universities & Museums for 33 years. "Now is a great time reveal the real James Walton aka "Peavine Jimmy". We did not invent him. You probably have never heard of him in Ohio, but he is big in Spokane, hence the Jame "Peavine Jimmy" Walton threshing barn, stagecoach, merchants, mining, and more. We're just trying to work together, piecing the information together, with confused dates. We look to forward to working with you in the future. We're not trying to get kicked off find a grave on our first experience / day. "Peavine Jimmy" is a bit of a shocker at first. Kind Regards, Vern & Carrie Berg

James Walton aka "Peavine Jimmy"
James Walton aka "Peavine Jimmy"
The date on the headstone of James F. Walton (1858-1908)contradicts the dates on the depicted article; if James was born in 1858 and he returned home in 1860 he would have been 2 years old? Then he walked to California in 1862, that would have made him 4 years old in 1862?
The BIRCHWOOD FARM GROVE 2016-17 book has the origin of James Walton aka "Peavine Jimmy", who was born in 1830-1908, son of David and Louisa Winchell Walton, and his brother Martin Van Buren Walton, and much more, for instance James Walton's FRIENDS, merchant and mining partners, are in the book. Do you know who you have here? James Walton is a well-known historical icon in Spokane, Wash., hence the "Peavine Jimmy" threshing barn. He was a "mining magnate", affiliated with the Copper King, Heinze.

RE: Kisler, Likens Cemetery
Thank you for letting me know the status of Jacob Kistlers gravesite. Perhaps if probing is performed, you may find a headstone. Are there burial records or maps of this cemetery? Whoever created his memorial ( I will have to check) must have known somehow that he is buried there.---Maureen

No, I am not a relative. John Hicks II is part of my collection of Americans and British killed or mortally wounded on the first day of the American Revolution.

RE: Ralph Hilleary
Sorry for the delay - I wanted to verify the address. The actual mailing address in Cumberland, MD. However, that is very misleading. The section where the burial is located is called Potomac Park, with appropriate signage along Rt. 220 S. of Cumberland. The burial itself is in the area of Potomac Park called Fairgo, due to its proximity to the Allegany County Fairgrounds. I think if I were listing it, I would say: Fairgo, Potomac Park, Cumberland, MD. However, it's up to you.

I appreciate your trying to correct this error that is spread throughout the internet. We can only do our best! Thank you!

RE: Ralph Hilleary
The stone has not been moved. The burial is on property owned by the family at the time. The location of his burial, Oldtown, is not right. In the 1810 census, it states that he lived in the Upper Oldtown District of Allegany County, whish is where the burial is located. This area is SOUTH of Cumberland, MD, along route 220 and the Potomac River. Oldtown, MD, is on the east side of Cumberland, miles and miles away. Somebody based the burial location upon census data, not knowing where Upper Oldtown was. The mistake has been carried forth ad infinitum on the internet. I have a photo of the old stone, bearing the names of Ralph, his wife, and son Levi, as well as the location of it. Oldtown, MD was named by Thomas Cresap, the pioneer. Some of his sons lived along the Potomac River, south of Cumberland, thus naming the area Upper Oldtown, as it was the upper part of the Potomac River, along which Thomas Cresap also lived.

RE: Mina Powell
She may have taken the Powell name since James & Rebecca took her into their home so young. But in the 1880 she is going by Snyder. Have you check her name as Wilamina? I don't know if that is the correct spelling.
Also my Husband's side have the name of Schneider in this line. There are MANY Spellings. You may want to check that out.
I will also continue to check once I am back in Ohio. Traveling now from Arizona.
