Luna Nairn
Hi Lynn, I am hoping to be granted to use the photo of Luna Nairn in a family history book that my family is publishing. She was owners of farmland that my parents are the currents owners of in Pawnee Rock, Kansas. I have received help in receiving a picture of the man who homesteaded the land, his name was Aaron Miller.

Thanks for the work you are doing and for considering the permission of the photo use. I can be reached at the following e-mail

RE: Edna Westbrook #126712057
I had a rather large amount of information plotted out on a time line chart to try and figure out which Edna had which child and marriage and death dates... Hate it when the same man chooses women with same first, and sometimes, middle names!

Thank you so much for all the additional information you supplied! My sister-in-law will be delighted to see the additional info on the first wife of her relative.

You have truly gone above and beyond in helping to fill out the memorial!

Theodocia Winn Young Memorial #75412640
Theodocia Young freed my gggg grandmother and ggg grandfather, Hannah and James Milton Turner, in 1843. I wondered how a woman who died in 1816 could have freed her slaves in 1843! Upon looking carefully at the tombstone photos here and finding her will, I realized she died in 1846 not 1816. Please change her death year to 1846.

Thanks, Lynn. I appreciate it! You do such good work on all your find-a-graves! You do not have to transfer my mother and father-on-laws to me, but I appreciate the offer. Thank you for the condolences, we all appreciate it!

Your friend,

Josephine LaMarsh memorial #176177266
Hi Lynn,

I just wanted to add a correction for Josephine LaMarsh ( she is my mother-in-law). She was not proceeded in death by her sister, Joyce Droege. JoAnn was an only child and Joyce(Droege) Siemer is JoAnn's first born daughter.
Everything else on the memorial looks great! Thanks for being so quick to get these find-a-graves up. JoAnn loved looking at them and printing them for her family history books.

Thanks again,
Christianne LaMarsh

RE: PVT Lester Robert Cory
The cenotaph says "BRD IN FRANCE" BRD would be an abbreviation for Burried... Thus Burried in France would be the correct inscription.

He was killed during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, also known as the Battle of the Argonne Forest.

I believe he was killed by machine gun fire. There were over 26000 US soldiers killed during the offensive.

I'm doing additional research on him via the National Archive and Should know more in a week or two. I'll keep you posted on what I find! Found his picture online from Jersey County Illinois remembrance book.

PVT Lester Robert Cory
Hi Lynn, I was wondering if you could edit the page of PVT Lester Robert Cory. In part where you describe the headstone of his cenotaph you list "Born in France"... It should be "Buried in France" as he was Killed in Action and is buried in the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in France. Thanks!

RE: Harvey Hallett
I agree! I found both Pulvers and Peelers in Sodus,Wayne,NY, in census records, but Susan is clearly listed as Peeler. I had a note that it is a Dutch name, but don't know if that's true. Thanks, Lynn! You're the best!😊

Thank You
Thank you for all of your work on the Kaehni family in St. Louis.
Are you a descendant of Peter Kaehni? I have exchanged a few emails with Tony Kaney through the years.I came down the line of Josephine Kaehni.
And, I always ask...
If you are related, any old photos?
I would like to make contact if you are a descendant.

Thanks for being generous in your reply.

I am interested in finding out more about this family. I am researching a Knipping family from Centralia, Madison, Ill.
The first names of the sons are the same which leads me to believe they are from the same German ancestor. Cousins, brothers. If this is not your family, do you know any family members? Not my family either, just researching for my Knipping friend. Thanks! Joyce

Lynn: I remember Father Time well from seeing him in all the right places---especially at the ballpark. I left an offering on his page. You did a great job on his page! If they would allow you to list him as famous, I for one would definitely go back and vote on your page for him. He is famous!

Hi Lynn: Happy 2017. If you feel so inclined, check out this memorial page and cast a vote. My guess is you will recognize the man. If no vote, it is still a good read. Hugs Barbara
