Myrtle Sailer King
Hello Ann - thank you for the information on Findagrave.com regarding Myrtle. My husband descends from her mother Nancy Ann and her first husband, Theodore Funk.

Myrtle actually had one other half-sibling from that union, who was my husband's ancestor. He changed his entire name, so it's understandable that he got lost. He was born Francis Marion Funk (1870-1938) but as a young man became Charles Henry Smith. It becomes confusing because his youngest brother also was named Charles H.

In any event, thanks again! What is your connection to Myrtle?

I have an old photograph - and possibly it is Wesley Mavity. I am going to post it on the site. Take a look when you can.

Donna Hunsberger Borop #29349748
Hi Ann,
Yesterday I was at Riverside cemetery in Prophetstown and found headstones for Donna & first husband Adrian Hunsberger. There is no date of death for Donna here. I went to the library and in the master spreadsheet of burials they had she is not listed as being buried here, just found Adrian.

This could mean either the listing needs to be updated in the library, or she is buried in California with her second husband. I find a Lyle Borop who died Jan 1998 in California and Donna Olson Hunsberger Borop died in July 24, 2005 in Orange county California. Could this be them?

You can make it work that they made a double plot in Prophetstown cemetery in 1969 when Adrian died, but then she got remarried, moved to California and was buried out there with second hubby?

Anyways, I have a lovely photo of the double stone with a flower planter in between in Prophetstown with Adrian that I took yesterday, showing no death date for Donna. Let me know if you want it emailed or added to the memorial?

Hope this helps. Can't go any further with the photo request at this time...nothing changed.

Thanks, kathy

Jane Victoria Ferguson Bullers
Hi Ann-
I noticed a beautiful photo that you posted on Jane. I was wondering if you would be willing to forward me a copy of it. My sisters and I have inherited a ton of stuff from my mother's side of the family. We could possibly use this to help identify some photos we are not sure of. The other thing is that the person who put this in is deceased now and John and Jane Bullers are not in this Highland Cemetery they are actually in the Highland cemetery in What Cheer, Iowa. I will be contacting Find A Grave about what to do about this as it is confusing. I have been to their graves many times with my mom and my grandmother who was a Bullers. I belong to William Bullers who was my 2 great grandfather. I will be connecting the family to the What Cheer cemetery entry.
