Hi Nancy!
Thought I received something yesterday? Was there something more about cemetery records?

RE: Bessie Lois Howell Scott Bingham
Hi Nancy,
Thank-you for the reply. I totally get what you are saying and have a similar feeling myself about surnames.......but we are striving to keep the record straight, right? My grandmother married twice, had her three children with her first husband and married again. When she married her second husband she had the name of her first. I think this was partially done "in the day" so that the children and their divorced mother had the same name. I think we should collectively strive to reflect the truth and follow the guidelines set out in Find A Grave.
It is a pleasure working with you. Hope you are feeling better.

Bessie Lois Howell Scott Bingham
Hi Nancy!
I have sent an edit for a removal of the "Scott" part of Bessie Lois Howell Bingham. She and Charles MacDonald Scott were divorced very early on in their marriage. I know this may seem like splitting hairs but several contributors have pointed this out to me. Can you imagine if Elizabeth Taylor kept all of her married names after being divorced so many times? I am the person who contacted you on Ancestry about the Charles MacDonald Scott sage. Lol!

She is buried in a very odd section of Mound View. This is where the secret society ladies are all buried without the husbands and I have wondered if many of their names were changed or given by the societies or even made up for some reason because of how odd all of them were in general. I think "Cherry" was found in the burial records at Mound View. Maybe not correct but the dates are. I bet it's your lady.

George's memorial was created from the interment records at Mountain View, and I do not have any other personal information about him.

1855 is very early for Iowa -- he would have had to have been born in the Mississippi River Valley.

What I can tell you that may or may not help you make your decision is that the section of the cemetery in which he is buried - Gentle Friends - is primarily Quaker. There are non Quakers buried there, but this part of the cemetery was originally the Quaker burying ground for the Pasadena Quaker population. It was later merged with Mountain View.

I'm sorry that I can't be of more help to you!

RE: Questions
Hi Nancy,

This is my Mom's father's side. I can tell you I have done a lot of research on this side, although I haven't looked at it in quite awhile. My Mother's birth certificate has her name as Eagan. So I asked her if she knew she was spelling her name wrong her whole life because she always spelled it Eagen. I think there is just a variation in the spelling. Back in Ireland, I believe it may have been spelled Agan.

I believe the letters on the top of the stone is SON. He died young and was buried in the same plot as his parents, which is all linked in the memorial. They are all next to each other.

I'm not sure why the dates are different. I didn't add the memorial. I just took the pictures. I might have some paperwork on him that I could check for dates. Maybe they were transcribed wrong in the record. Hate to think what's engraved in stone is wrong. I don't know.

Why are you interested in John? I don't think he had any children or a wife . . . He was my grandfather's uncle and my grandfather was also named John Eagen (son of Joseph). It is all linked.

Hope this helps.

RE: Hi, Robert S
Never worry about telling me twice, I'd rather have it a dozen times than miss out.

Absolutely strange. I had to stop the other night and now it in the TTD list, So much happens so fast at times and then for days nothing.

Thank you for the follow up, I will take another look this evening, No Genealogy in the shop :-(

Have you seen Find A Grave 3910685 and compared it to 176551207

I have him as Robert Steven Macaulay but that's debatable, Navy, and SSN #540-28-1179

What do you think?

RE: Furguson/Ferguson & Furgeson
Although Ferguson correction has some merit, I couldn't agree to to your request based on the hand corrected 1900 writing. I would favor the multitude of recent engraved headstones that support Furgeson.
