Loving the detective work that is genealogy. I have MS so the computer is my mode of travel. I'm thankful for the volunteers who do the walking and photographing for me, as I cannot walk.|
Cragun, Porter, South, Versteeg, Day and Peffer are some lines I'm researching.

Thought I received something yesterday? Was there something more about cemetery records?
|chevydelray55||RE: Bessie Lois Howell Scott Bingham|
Thank-you for the reply. I totally get what you are saying and have a similar feeling myself about surnames.......but we are striving to keep the record straight, right? My grandmother married twice, had her three children with her first husband and married again. When she married her second husband she had the name of her first. I think this was partially done "in the day" so that the children and their divorced mother had the same name. I think we should collectively strive to reflect the truth and follow the guidelines set out in Find A Grave.
It is a pleasure working with you. Hope you are feeling better.

I have sent an edit for a removal of the "Scott" part of Bessie Lois Howell Bingham. She and Charles MacDonald Scott were divorced very early on in their marriage. I know this may seem like splitting hairs but several contributors have pointed this out to me. Can you imagine if Elizabeth Taylor kept all of her married names after being divorced so many times? I am the person who contacted you on Ancestry about the Charles MacDonald Scott sage. Lol!
Send corrections using edits for each correction.

They might be better able to help you. I don't remember Everett/Bud Wood. Sorry!

She is buried in a very odd section of Mound View. This is where the secret society ladies are all buried without the husbands and I have wondered if many of their names were changed or given by the societies or even made up for some reason because of how odd all of them were in general. I think "Cherry" was found in the burial records at Mound View. Maybe not correct but the dates are. I bet it's your lady.

George's memorial was created from the interment records at Mountain View, and I do not have any other personal information about him.
1855 is very early for Iowa -- he would have had to have been born in the Mississippi River Valley.
What I can tell you that may or may not help you make your decision is that the section of the cemetery in which he is buried - Gentle Friends - is primarily Quaker. There are non Quakers buried there, but this part of the cemetery was originally the Quaker burying ground for the Pasadena Quaker population. It was later merged with Mountain View.
I'm sorry that I can't be of more help to you!
