John Alexander Huston
Hello. I live in Mr. Huston's home in Olds, IA. The picture you it possible to get the entire picture. I am putting a bit of a museum together in my home of all those who have lived there. It's a "Story of the House" wall on the 2nd floor. I am in touch with a descendant of John Sr...yet love all the information I can gather. Thank you!

Thank you for the clarification. There are so many Lewis's it's getting confusing ;)

Oliver G Lewis

Robert S. LEWIS b. 1813, is my 3rd great-grandfather. His parents are listed as Oliver G LEWIS and Mary (Carver) LEWIS. In my research I have not been able to come up with any record of their marriage or mention of Mary Carver as Oliver G LEWIS's wife other than here on Find A Grave. Can you share with how you have made the connection between Oliver G LEWIS and Mary (Carver) LEWIS?

Thank you for any help,
Jennifer Machyousky

St Mary's Cemetery, Hurley, Iron County, WI
Aileen, I am not quite done. Am leaving it up for a few hours. The pic on the left (the VA stone) I am sure I must have pictured, but haven 't got it named yet, I will go get another if I don't find it soon. Thanks, Lynn

Samuel Snarski
Find A Grave # 178394545. Hello Aileen. I have a brief correction for you if you care to make it. Samuel Snarski is actually buried in the St. Mary's section of the Hurley cemetery in Hurley, Iron, WI. Crazy the way this was listed in the old days. Anyhow, I have made one, too, and then saw that you did. If you would transfer his location I will be happy to add pictures and remove mine. PS - I have a copy of the transcripts for "the Hurley Cemetery (Protestant side)" and Samuel is not listed there. Thanks, Lynn

I have previously requested Find a Grave to designate this memorial as a cenotaph, but have not heard back from them. If you look closely at the stone it is ancestry list for the person at the bottom. Check his memorial and you will see the same stone with the memorial created by the same person. I have not bothered to check the intervening names. All of these ancestors have not been moved there. Here are the rules from Find A Grave on a cenotaph:

"A cenotaph is a marker within a cemetery placed in honor of a person whose remains are buried elsewhere. It may also be the original marker for someone who has since been reinterred elsewhere. To add a cenotaph, create a memorial. Then email with a link to the memorial and request to have the memorial designated a cenotaph. Please only add relationship links to the actual burial memorial when both a cenotaph and actual burial exist."
