Bio and Links
Bio Photo

I do transfers under Findagrave guidelines. If you are not familiar with the guidelines please do review them. I am not likely to make a transfer without specifics that fall in those guidelines--in keeping with a system of fairness.
I also appreciate specific sources when being sent information to update a bio. We are building something special and 'facts' need to be verifiable.
And please, if you send a transcribed obituary or news item--please provide the source.

I have noticed some odd images being attached to memorials for veterans--stock images of a medal. I do not find that useful for research purposes if the fact is already mentioned on a gravestone. Comments from other contributors on this matter are welcome.

William T. Scott - DOD 2/2/1917
This is NOT one of your memorials - but I ran across a little article in the Kansas City Sun about the death of this individual and wondered if you had ever heard of him or done any research about him. I don't know that I ever knew about the Liberty Party or that they had nominated a black candidate for President in 1896. I just thought, from our past correspondences, you might find this interesting. If you know anything about him, can you maybe send me some links?

Kenneth A. Ryerson
You contacted us regarding the memorial stone for Kenneth Ryerson (140599724), in Haviland Cemetery at Fort Dodge, Iowa.
This is what you wrote: I noticed an older memorial for Mr. Ryerson--but it has him in a different cemetery. Could you place your photo there and correct the location?--
What other cemetery are you talking about?
I personally took this picture, and know that this one is located in Haviland Cemetery.

about Lloyd Rodger Leslie
Russ, I don't know how it could have happened, but I must've violated a programming law (or maybe exposed a bug) when I typed in the Find A Grave # 163619203 for Lloyd's wife Elizabeth Easton and caused him to have two wives with the same name, etc. Can you clean that up?

RE: thank you for bringing article to my attention
Glad I could get this to you. I think it's important to chronicle the struggles of those who went before. Hope you can get more information on Dr. Giles. If I run across anything else, I'll send it along.

RE: Mr. and Mrs. Adam Plumb
I don't have much on Joseph and Elizabeth Catherine Clark Plumb's children. I have not found who the missing 3 children are.

I have found Catherine Belle Plumb Fear on the 1900, 1920 and 1930 census'. Research on Charles Hiram has been relatively easy so I'm guessing you have all that I have.

If you haven't seen Elizabeth Catherine Clark Plumb Staheli's obituary, go here:http: //

It mentions a grandson, Thomas Craze. He was born in 1908 in Washington. He is buried in the Igo Cemetery. It mentions Roy Plumb as a grandson and he is Charles' son.

I found a death record for a Katherin Fear in San Diego but I have no reason to think she was ever there.

California Death Index

Name: Katherin Fear
Birth Year: abt 1889
Death Date: 16 Jan 1936
Age at Death: 47
Death Place: San Diego, California, USA

If you find anything please let me know.

I hope this helps!
