Robin Upchurch
RE: Alberta E Upchurch Doyle
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply! I am recovering from wrist surgery. My husband is from the Upchurch family. The only name in your inquiry that I have in our tree is a Rachel. I have 2. Rachel of Shadrack and Ruth Upchurch 1826 and Rachel of George and Rachel Bethshare Upchurch 1791. I do not find a sister to either by the name of Alberta. Genealogy is a never ending search, so it isn't surprising that I have missed many.
I do not remember what I have written about this branch of the Upchurch family. I sure didn't ad it to my tree yet. I must have written from some notes and then lost them? I'm so sorry I can't help!

Milburn Bogard
Thank you so very much for your help and information on the Bogard family. It takes a lot of time and effort to do the research. I can only imagine the amount of information you have shared with other families. It is clearly what you love to do. Thank you.

Pvt. John Greenleaf Thayer
Hello Jean,
Thank you very much for taking the gravestone photo of John Greenleaf Thayer. Welcome to Findagrave. When I first requested the photo it said that there was "a" volunteer withing ten miles of my request and no mention of any others within fifty miles. Thanks for joining in so that we now have more than one volunteer up in "THE" County. I haven't been up there for a couple of years, but I hope to get back for a visit one of these days.
Sincerely, Tim Cooper
Buckfield, Maine
