RE: William Loudenback #35326676
William Loudenback is buried is Ohio. While there is no tombstone with his first name, there is a large Loudenback monument. He is listed as being buried in the cemetery records on November 6, 1911. He is next to his brother Abraham. I found his obit which also lists his burial in Oak Dale Cemetery. His Ohio death certificate lists his burial as Urbana, OH. I hope this helps to clear up the confusion.

80 year old thing
Hey Pat,
Don't let that (80 year old thing) slow you down.
One of my Co-Partners near Ogden Utah is 83. She has piles of obits from the 1950's and onward. She loads the folks, then I come along later in a full photographic sweep of a cemetery. We're in the final stages of a 6000 soul cemetery right now. Keep them fingers typing-You'll live forever!

Thank you for the edits for Iva. It gave me the opportunity to improve the photos. Are you related to the family? BJ

RE: Isaac Henry York, #138657610
Thanks Pat your contact.

Isaac Henry York is a 4th Great Grandfather of mine. The other creator is Tammy York Orman who has fraudulently claimed kin to the Jeremiah York descendants of whom Isaac Henry York is a descendant. I have had numerous email contacts with Tammy who is very uncooperative, rude, argumentative and refuses to make corrections to her many errors. Read the negative attitude on her Bio. She often goes off line for long periods of time and frequently refuses to answer or accept any edits.

Tammy apparently is more interested in just posting tombstone photos with minimum bios with too few correct relationships. Most often she posts incorrect data she apparently acquires from the internet unverified. According to YDNA testing she is from an entirely different genetic York family. Her York family is from the Baltimore Maryland in 1660. Tammy has no connection with the Jeremiah York family all the way back to England. So to progress with his multiple families I have had to create an accurate Find A Grave memorial for Isaac Henry York to properly honor him.

RE: Hepsibah Hirst Branch #24389368
Hi David and Pat,

You suggested that Hepsibah Hirst Branch has different parents than who she is linked to. Please let the person who entered Hepsibah memorial know to change it because all parent links are made through the childs memorial, not through the parents. I believe Kathryn Gebczyk made Hepsibah memorial.

Thank you,

RE: Ellis Hughes #70860204
Ellis and wives transferred. The printer at the library was not working when I was there and therefore no copy of Ellis' obit. If you really want one, go to Elkhart (IN) Public Library obituary data base. They will mail you one for a small charge. AS I said the obit doesn't amount to much - and is typical of an obit done by a second (or 3rd wife ?) who doesn't have accurate history of the husband.

RE: Ellis Hughes #70860204
I had chance to look up Ellis Hughes' obit today. Only a paragraph long and with discrepancies from my entry. Obit says he was born WVA and only came to Elkhart County area about 1883. My data ( of an unknown source) has him born in Elkhart County - and he served in an Indiana Inf. Reg. during the Civil war. Obit goes on to say he died at 82 (about correct) and was survived by a wife (no name given) and by a son Isaac presently living in Iowa (in 1923).

This is a random Find A Grave entry for me, not family, and I have no interest in trying to sort out the obit and your data with what has been put into his memorial in Find A Grave to date. So --- if you wish I will gladly turn over management of his memorial to you or we can both just let it ride as is.
