Thank you very much for sponsoring some of the memorials I'm taking care of.
The Echo 2/3 Marines Virtual Cemetery is where I remember several of my friends that died in Vietnam.
Thank you for all your work as well.

I'm so glad to hear you are on the mend. Any surgery these days is worrisome due to hospital borne infections! Take care and get back to the piles of paper when you can. We ALL have them.

I added a photo of Elliott Gay on his memorial and noticed your notes that you are a relative of his. His wife Edna Allenbach's mother, Bertha Maurer Allenbach was a half sister of my great grandfather, Paul Rolland Maurer. So we are shirt tail cousins. Have you read Elliott Gay's book of the history of the Palouse country "Yesterday and the Day Before"?

|Elody21||Rebecca Davis Layton|
sorry I should have titled the first message under Rebecca Davis Layton
So the parents of Rebecca Gaffney were John Gaffney and Pricilla Morgan and they had children overlapping the dates stated for the children of Rebecca Davis Layton.
It is very confusing because of all the Rebecca's and Johns.
Added by Elody21 on Apr 08, 2017 11:20 PM
Hi your information about John Rebecca Gaffney by Laura Layton is incorrect,
The John Gaffney, & his daughter Rebecca, are my family. The following is taken from an unpublished biograpy by Andrew Jackson Finley, the son of Rebecca Gaffney and John (Alexander) Finley. AJ was my great great grandfather and there is much information written about his life and of his parents.
" My mother's name was Rebecca Gaffney. Her Fathers name was John Gaffney. (skip a couple paragraphs) "My grandfather, John Gaffney, was born September 19, 1784 and died September 26, 1846, in Fulton County Illinois.
There is much more and the complete page was sent to Katie by e-mail.
Our Rebecca was only married once and died at the age of 46. I have been to her grave outside of Toulon Illinois, Stark county at a cemetery called Star Wano. The information I give you is true and accurate and very well documented. Rebecca and John Alexander Finley had 11 children by the time she died at her young age.
The graves for John Gaffney and Pricilla are the parents of our Rebecca.
Could you please let Laura know that this is not her family? I am so sorry because I know how important it is to find all the pieces to ones family puzzle.
It is also causing a lot of confusion on Ancestry.com with the correct Finley Trees. If you want to check it out on Find a Grave look for Andrew Jackson Finley born 1828 died 1928 in San Diego California where AJ and his wife Margaret moved to in 1903. My user name for Find a Grave is Elody21
thank you, AliceFinleyCall

|Suzy & Rob||RE: Samuel N. Baker|
Well, here's her death certificate:
She died in Douglas but the death certificate says she's buried in Phoenix. Since her son is at Greenwood and since in 1930 that was the only major cemetery in town (except a Catholic one), I've made a memorial for her at Greenwood. You can call them and double check if you'd like but I'm 99.9% sure.

You made me smile with your excitement in finding Samuel Baker. I felt the same way when I found one of my great-grandmothers here on Find A Grave. I didn't think I'd ever find her. Anyway, you will find Samuel's death certificate here:
In looking at it again, I see that I misread his mother's name so have changed it in the bio to Isis. Again, it was nice to hear from you.

You are very welcome...for anything else you may need, I am in that lovely cemetery all to frequently. Very peaceful. I will get a better shot when the weather changes here and the grass starts to grow. This section was covered with purple crocus the day I was there. I hated to walk on them!! Beautiful!

|Frank R. Adamski||RE: Thank you|
You are very welcome, Ms. Blair. I love reading the biography of your Dad. He, and my Dad, being members of the exclusive Firefighter Brotherhood, are probably swapping stories, and leading their fellow firefighters in fitness exercises and training drills keeping them fit and prepared for the next run. Even though that run will never come, considering there are no fires up there, it reinforces that camaraderie, not to mention old habits are hard to break. I hope you do not mind, but I added you to my list of Find A Grave friends. Blessings to you, and your family as well. My very best regards, Frank.

Hi, cousin. Thanks for your sweet thoughts. I hope your heath is improving by leaps and bounds. I am familiar with Sally Patterson (Sarah). My great grandfather, Hugh Welch Duncan, was Eliza's youngest son. Are you in DAR? Sally was one of the family members to die of Spotted Fever, and is buried in the same cemetery as Jeannette Coe Gibson. Sorry to keep it short. Somehow my Find A Grave site has gone from regular size type to HUGE type, and is very difficult to read. I am low tech, and have no idea how to get it back to normal. The rest of my computer is fine. Any ideas? It's really impacting my Find A Grave use, so I could only get the gist of your note.

|Spotsgenie||Jane Davison or Davidson|
There has been some confusion on Jane's last name whether it was Davison or Davidson no one could be really sure, unless there was a will from her father if it was Alexander Davidson or not, you state on Alexander's bio this was copied from your quote "Jane may have been an adopted niece or stepdaughter." And she may have had a brother named Thomas Davison he married a younger sister of Charles A. Lewis, Nancy Ann Lewis in Barren County, Kentucky. Thomas Davison was born in Ireland I believe.

The family prefers "Germany" to "Poland" as the family spoke German. Unfortunately Prussia is not an option - Find A Grave has only relatively current place names and the reference is to the city formerly known as Neustettin, not the Kreis.
You referenced Wikipedia to find the place names. I'd like to recommend www.kartenmeister.com to you for Pommern place name lookups. He doesn't do everything, but seems to have expanded somewhat beyond the old Pommern & we've found the site to be an excellent reference.
A Kreis Neustettin map is at http://hinterpommern.de/Karten/Neustettin/gemeinden.html Gunthard Stubbs has mapped out the church areas - I think after the Hinz brothers left, as some of the churches were not built until the time when Albert's daughters were emigrating but it's very helpful for determining which films might be helpful for research.

|Heather Burkhart||RE: Larry James Burkhart|
Hi Kathie! Thank you for replying to my message I was happy to hear about my 3x great grandfather I was so confused on who was related to who i back tracked on my grandfather Robert Marshall to see who his parents were and found Raymond! I also went down to Albany to the museum and they had alot of information,and newspaper clippings and a book I bought called Gem of the Willamette Valley its the history of Albany and it has some neat info on the Burkharts. I don't really know alot about the family either my parents Larry and Kelly were only married 9 months April to Dec 1978 it wasn't until after my dad died that my mom found out she was pregnant with me I was born the following year in August. My mom never knew a whole lot about the Burkharts but has been helpful in what she does know. Betty my grandmother died when I was 9 I never got to meet her there were some family issues that took place after my dad had passed and her and my mom lost contact after i was 6months old she had seen me twice and I dont remember her. I grew up in the Salem area been married and divorced I have 4 beautiful children 1 girl and 3 boys, Hannah is 18,Cody 17,Jordan 15 and Tyler just turned 1! Im so excited that I get to share my family history with them. Thanks again Kathie I hope we can stay in touch.
