Headstone photo 120185126
Hello. I am trying in vain to tell what this headstone says. I think it has at least three names on it.

Did you write what it says on a paper and forgot to give us that info when you uploaded the photo?

Best wishes

RE: Robert Lee Burke
I probably came across his name researching and left him flowers. I have Burke relatives that lived in Whiteside County.

RE: Alice Stratton Beebe
ah, scratch what I just said last time... I just checked the dates and she would of been 4 years old at the time as she was born in 1574. Where you talking about Alice (Pigott) Stratton instead?

RE: Alice Stratton Beebe
within her bio, it says the wrong date then. Thank you for giving me the right date.

Thomas Ladd 1527 - 1602
Was curious if you had any records on him and his parents. You have John Ladd and Alice Oldefylde linked as his parents but I keep on finding in other places that his father was another Thomas Ladd. I cannot find records sadly so was wondering if you had any.

Alice Stratton Beebe

Alice could not of married John Beebe Sr in 1623 because he died in 1622.

125668066 Galatin Hamilton
Hi Mr. Burke:
I am interested in the documentation for Galatin Hamilton.
In some research I have found that he is son to James Hamilton, 1st Duke of Hamilton, 1st Duke of Hamilton (b. 1606) and Mary Margaret Hamilton (born Fielding 1613).
However, in a wiki article for James, and for Lady Mary, there is no mention of Galatin.

mentions no Gallatin.
Thank you.

Amy Rile
William Hoover RIle
Hi Robert!

Your work has been immensely helpful as I am also digging into the Rile family line. Your photos of grave markers has been wonderful as travel to NE from OH isn't easy! Wondered if you could have another look at the gravestone for William Hoover Rile (Find A Grave Memorial# 25395694) as the picture appears to show a birthdate of April 26, 1811 whereas the Find A Grave listing shows April 11, 1811. Thanks very much! Let me know if I can help with any Riles in OH. My best, Amy

Hello Robert,

I am very interested in the documentation that supports the above referenced record. Can you tell me how you were able to document the birth of Robert Swete in 1278, England.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
