May I have your permission to include a copy of your gravestone photograph in my family tree at Ancestry? I will credit you as the photographer. Thank you, Susan

No relation. I did research on the Canton, PA Circus and then went to the Park Cemetery to find all the tombstones and was disappointed that there was no memorial for Charlie at Park.

RE: Richard Morgan
Dear Mrs. Valentine. I cannot reconcile 2 Richard Price Morgan's with the same date of birth and dead in Illinois , in neighboring counties. I sincerely believe that Richard Price Morgan & Richard Price Morgan Jr. & Wives, are buried in Dwight, Illinois. His was the founder of our town. At first I would suggest that the entry in Bloomington be deleted. But on second thought we should try to determine from a head stone if possible if even the name is correct. Especially the "P" or "Price" is associated with it. Our RPM did live in Bloomington and worked out of the C&A works there for some time. Do you have a head stone picture? Lastly, the bio is exactly that of the founder of the our town, and he cant be in two places at the same time. I look forward to getting it all cleared up and thank you in advance for you assistance. Sincerely, Andy, Dwight Illinois

Margaret Peltz
Thank you so much for clarifying her burial location. I had received information from another member that said Margaret and her husband were buried with their son at Seaside, however that appears to be incorrect.......... Could you let me know if their son Rev. Richard Peltz is also buried in Eastlawn? Since I was told they were all buried at Seaside, I am a little concerned that may not be true.......... Good luck with the book! Take care, CB

You left flowers on the gravesite of Oliver Ross on 11.5.2012. I visited today and am curious why you left flowers. Are you a relative? Do you have any additional information on Oliver Ross?
You can reach me at
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Best Wishes for a Happy New Year in 2016.

I have found a stone that says John Shell, but I'm not able to see the date. Would you happen to know if he was in the service?
