If you can call Calvary Cemetery (323)261-3106 for the grave location I will get the photo for you! Do not email because they will not reply. I would call for you but Since I am probably the only regular active volunteer there I have made many many calls to them for locations and they are very annoyed with me.

RE: Mary Corning
What I will do is add it to the bio. We'll let others make up their minds. I looked it up on ancestry and did see Preston as the family name. I also back looked up Pressen--and that and a bunch of variants have Preston in parentheses after that in the old MA Vital Records. I found the marriage reference to which you refer--but it would be easy, given the "long s" of the day that looked like a f, to mistake the t for a long s.

Maiden Name: I have Preston from another member. Do you have a source for your version? I realize spellings were iffy in colonial days, at best. There is nothing on the marker to indicate either as a preferred name.

Thank you for agreeing to add the info on Goldie working at the chicken broiler plant near Malvern. Such tidbits help bring our ancestors to life, I find.

James Goodpasture Warren
As you see, there is no debate of this marriage.
They had no children that I can see. She also remarried to a CLAPP. I have 50 years of research experience, so you may not be able to dig up anything other than speaking directly to a family member. NO need to spend a lot of time. The CADI shows no kids, so I will just let it go at this point.. Just wanted you to know he was married before

RE: Gibson Family
There is now a map on Find A Grave for the Marion Cemetery to help you find it if you are in the area again! In the summer, the building is usually open and it has an index and map of of the cemetery sections. I,ll get area photos too, to help locate the graves.

RE: Gibson Family
Hi Ruth. I emailed you a couple articles. I don't recall if I added B & I 's info from records or a photo I didn't get around to posting. I'll be back to the cemetery in a couple weeks and will look! So glad I could help! Will transfer those memorials to you! Jan

RE: George Groce, II
Hi Ruth,
I posted a picture of for a George Groce stone, but I can't tell which one it is. I believe it's the one you requested, but wanted to take a closer look.

The Elizabeth Groce you recently requested isn't on the plot.
I'll repost it soon, and let you decide.

RE: George Washington Howard
Go ahead - I have too much to keep up with already!
Yes, we do make a great team :) I didn't make it to the reunion this year, but the cemetery work is still going on. All the fencing has been replaced, the right of way and driveway are a done deal and the sign should be going up real soon. My cousin has worked extremely hard to completely restore it. We are compiling information for the plat to go to the historical society. No sense losing all that we've gained!

RE: Clara Sims Whitlatch
I don't think they divorced, but perhaps they did. At any rate I believe there was trouble between Clara and Charles first wife and children. He spent a few years in Fort Madison Prison and he and Clara were married after that, but his obituary when he died in a coal mining accident didn't mention her as his wife.

RE: Charles M Whitlatch 90861205
She didn't divorce Charles Whitlatch, they were married when he passed away. The next man she married, Charles E Clair, had been in prison. I have been looking and not sure if they divorced or not as of yet... He was in prison during the 1920 and 1930 census for Fort Madison and my mother remembers her marrying a man from prison and her family didn't like it as far as she remembers. So understand if you want to do some more checking, but I am pretty sure we have the right Amanda Sims.

Charles M Whitlatch 90861205
Wife: Clara A. Sims remarried after Charles' death, married Charles Clair, but he died before she did as well and she is buried under her maiden name in Greenwood Cemetery, Marion County, Iowa Find A Grave#47651165 I can't submit the edit in the edit area as his parents are still a pending edit.

RE: Eliza Jane Fleming Moore
Yes, you may use her photo just credit me. (2003-2014 Mary "Corky" Richards on Find-A-Grave) You have my permission to use any Fleming or Moore photo I have posted (with credit of course). So many of the tin types, sketches and photographs have come from old trunks, old tin boxes, cigar boxes, inside family Bibles and other containers folks were throwing away. Also in the family I'm known as the picture keeper. When someone passes after folks take what they want, I end up with Bibles, books, old letters, funeral cards, envelopes and boxes of photos, etc.
I have had people steal what I post and some claiming the photos were actually someone else. I have worked hard for over four decades to categorize, date, and put families into groups. The last two decades I've scan photos, birth, marriage, funeral cards, obituaries and death certificates into the computer. It hurts me when I see this information abused. I'm not in this for profit or glory. I just want as complete and accurate a record, as possible to pass on to future family researchers.
Ruth, you have been of great assistance to me. I need people to point out my errors, I'm only human. So thank you for all you do for Find-A-Grave and especially me.
Bless you for visiting my son's memorial page. His tragic, sudden death is still too difficult (after 43 years) for me to talk or write about. Someday perhaps.
Blessings in all your endeavors,
Mary Richards
PS: still looking for more (no pun intended) photos for you. ;)

RE: Rowell Family
Hi, I am not related to Rowell family. I and several others are doing a project to record all the Beverly cemetery burials in FINDAGRAVE, that is how I came across your family.
My computer is currently in the repair shop for another week or so (I'm at the public library right now) but when I get it back, I will send along what information I have.
