Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

RE: John Marshall Seybold
I do not have too much information on her. My ancestor is his second wife, who was born an Ellis. So I assume it may be:

Elizabeth Eliza Matilda Ellis Murray Smith Seybold Winters
Birth ABT 1839 • Missouri
Death 1907 • Nevada, Vernon County, Missouri

RE: Sarah Smith grave
No, I do not. I do not know if she was single, married or widowed.

That Sarah is not William's wife. She is Charles's wife. Born 18 Jan 1855 Adams Co, Ohio to Harrison Shields.

RE: Robert G Goens and Mary E
You’re welcome. I think I’m the only active volunteer currently taking pictures at Spring Grove. My goal was to get the requests down to zero. It totaled over 1000 in late spring. Some of the photo requests, possibly yours, were listed over 3 years ago. It would be much easier if I didn’t live in Indiana. I’m glad that I could help you……Tom

RE: Robert and Ethel Folden
You are most welcome, I only wish I could have done more. When I have more time I will go back and probe for cemetery markers, I have found some that are as much as 8 inches into the ground.
Most of those at Woodbine were made from concrete 1 in thick X 1 ft X 8 inches wide.

RE: Stephens Memorials
Don't trust the FindAGrave memorials. As I posted, the Stephens memorials are being attacked. Also under attack, are the associated families.

I believe these Dickson's in photos were primarily in the Chicago area. I'll have to find them.

RE: Stephens and Dickson and Adams
Depending on where you are, I might have photos. I was given Dickson photos from Illinois I think it was. I'm not exactly sure who they are, but I have names on the back of some.

RE: Stephens Memorials
Where are the places you've mentioned? I live near Boonville, Missouri. Have you been to the Adams' graves in Boonville?
I'm going to email you an article on Adams family deaths. Strange circumstances. The John Q Adams was the fiancee of Anna Alexander. She was the sister of my great great grandmother.
