Memorial # 68522892
Regarding the memorial for Isabella Smith, could you please change the spelling of her first name? It is ISABELLE. I am her maternal great granddaughter. My mother chose her name as my middle name.
I realize this is a trivial request and probably a minor over site. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time and research, Ms. Janet I. Goodrich

He was born in Montrose PA and Joanna is NOT his mother as of this day 3/26/2017 BOTH of his parents a still living. Joanna is his stepmother. Janette is his step sister. i would truly appreciate it if you would make the changes to the memorial.

Thank You for Your Time,

RE: Layton Howard
Thanks Dave. Did you know that B. F. Howard was married twice. There are 2 different obits for him, one of which indicates that he married Marie L. Shepard on 15 Dec 1865 and that she died soon after. The obits also have 2 different dates of death, July 7 and July 15, 1917, but I believe the July 15 date is the correct one.

Layton Howard
Dave. What can you tell me about Layton Howard? It appears you have the only tree on that has him listed as a a son of Benjamin Howard and Almira Butts. Thanks.
I have found the death dates and burial locations of their other 7 children. All are now listed on findagrave. I'm still waiting for some connections to be made.

RE: Ada Oliver Lord - Find A Grave Memorial# 173799567
Interesting. So maybe Jared took the children. I believe Jared was a brother of Mary R. Lord (Addie's mother) and also Phoebe Lord Oliver, wife of Orlando, who was Polly's brother.

Ada Oliver Lord - Find A Grave Memorial# 173799567
Hello Dave. You once corrected some info I had concerning Ada Oliver, that I had on her mother's findgrave memorial, specifically who her father was (Alanson Oliver, not Henry Cotton).
I thought you would be interested in this. It's still a work in progress. Find A Grave Memorial# 173799567
