Spouse 1:
Amy Ruth McClure Palmer
(1896 - 1989) Spouse 1:

The Above edit will remove Amy Ruth McClure from Ralph Lloyd Palmer's memorial. Ralph married Amy Austin in 1933 per marriage record below:

Ralph Lloyd Palmer

Name Ralph Lloyd Palmer
Event Type Marriage
Event Date 29 Nov 1933
Event Place , Jo Daviess, Illinois, United States

Right now on Amy's memorial, Ralph Lloyd is Amy's 2nd husband. On Ralph's memorial, he is showing only one spouse. Was there a another marriage?

RE: Loren Carr 36414485
No, I'm not related to Loren, I took over management of the memorial from another volunteer when his health became an issue and he couldn't maintain his memorials. If you're a relative and would like to manage it send me a request using the Edit tab on the memorial page and I'd be happy to transfer it.

RE: 54358947 Alice Bringsjord
Hi Erin,

I apologize for the incorrect link. The person I was researching was an Alice Ruth Harrison, born in Illinois to John Harrison and Elizabeth Winland. She married Herbert Clarence ORoke in Illinois 1 Apr 1915. She died in Minnesota. The states and names made it appear that I had the right link.

Mount Moriah Photo Requests
Please consider contacting the cemetery to obtain the grave block and lot numbers. The cemetery is huge and there are over 170 photo requests...too many for the volunteers to research. You can send them to me on Find a Grave or update the memorial if you are the manager.
