RE: Memorial #77550999
Hi Anita,

I am not related to Amanda but I've done a bit more research on her and have posted the info on her memorial.

RE: Marilda Shipwash
I've ran into that same problem on several families, where they primarily go by the middle name but no one mentions their first name. You search by what you have but if you're unaware of the full name, it can be almost impossible to find someone.

One of my dad's cousins died at age 11. The family always spoke of him as Stanley, but after lots of wasted time and effort, I finally discovered by accident that his given name was actually Elmer Stanley. With that I was able to find his 1926 Obituary.

Ditto on one of my Grandpa's brothers, they called him "Beckham" but his name was actually Christopher Beckham and when I finally did find his death certificate, they had spelled both his name and his Dad's name wrong too. It was only a fluke or miracle that I found it at all. I've found this to be a common problem in all my lines.

Hi Anita,
I like your idea of getting paid to do what we love but doubt we will ever see it happen;Still it's fun to think about it. You were an adorable little girl so are probably an attractive lady by now. I went to the same school as my ex-husband's Mom, who was in the same class as my Aunt, so the name was always familiar to me, though not common. After I heard the stories about his great grandpa I was interested in finding the facts so have searched for 34 years and never found a drop of information beyond what we had until this week. I was so happy to finally find a trace of that man and his "other" family, and hopefully together we can all get to the bottom of the story! I have a lot going on this week but let's keep in touch and I will share anything I find with you. Have a nice day!

Thank you Anita, I appreciate you replying so promptly. I understand, I don't have a lot of time to do research sometimes either. I think we all just try to do what we can and when we can, I try to not pressure anyone, let's just enjoy the hunt for the details and communicate when we can.

Your Avatar has a sweet and pretty little girl, is it you or your child or grandchild? She's a doll whichever she is.

Feel free to write any time.
Best wishes always for good health, safety, love, peace, prosperity and happiness!

Sorry, I forgot to mention that he was married to Rhoda Elizabeth Hubbard here in Lawrence Co., IN
on 10-10-1902. They had two children but you'll see that if you follow the link I gave.

Hi Anita,

Thank you for all your contributions to Find A Grave.

You left a comment on Find A Grave Memorial# 9189733, (William Finley Shipwash) and said "This is my great grandmother's brother." Might I ask who your Great grandmother was?

William's Father, Benjamin Albert/Albert Benjamin was my ex-husband's great grandfather. He was married to Marilda Holloway. I have not been able to find out when she died or where she is buried. If you know and don't mind sharing the information I would appreciate it.

Here is the link to Benjamin Albert/Albert Benjamin's Memorial Page. His Stone says "A.B. Shipwash", but his Indiana Family always called him Benjamin Albert. Benjamin Albert Shipwash/Albert Benjamin Shipwash

Have a good week. Best Wishes always,

RE: Willie Craft
Please look at the Douglas (Douglass) Cemetery FB page, we will post our progress there. Today we began locating and marking the unmarked graves. We also marked graves with tombstones (some broken) and plantings. The city has surveyed and marked their boundaries and we are moving forward.

Thank you for your kind message regarding my great uncle. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated. Although his is the only marked grave in that area based on oral family history and traditions, I know that his grandmother, mother, aunts and other relatives are buried in that area. I am working with the Chicora Foundation and City of Coulumbia to have what is left of Douglas (Douglass) rehabilitated and to commemorate those whose graves have been desecrated. I will be posting on this FaceBook page as we undertake this process: if you are interested.

Kathryn Davenport moved
I am Kathryn (Cathy) Davenport sister, Gina Counts. Her head stone has been moved to 96 beside my mother Nina Davenport.

I'm not sure if you are aware, but the church, Sacred Acres, was organized by my grandfather George Davenport 1952. In 1962 the Old Time Holiness Church was formed. My dad, Marion, was an ordained minister at the church. My grandfather is buried there at the church.

I am glad to run across this site. I have been researching my genealogy and having trouble getting far.

Thank you,
Gina Counts

RE: Eula and Lula Bundrick
Anita, I don't think I ever responded to your query about the year these twins were born. Strangely enough, everywhere I've searched doesn't clarify whether they year was 1920 or 1921. 1930 census suggests one year, 1940 census suggests the other. Other documents on support Eula's contention of 1920, but Lula's contention of 1921. I'll see Betty & Sandra next Saturday at a family gathering, and will try to remember to ask them. Of course, they will confirm what their mother says, which really doesn't confirm anything. I'll ask where they were baptized, and see if I can find church records which will confirm the correct year. I noticed this when I attached image of Lula's gravemarker. Hey, if I had 14 children, I probably would think my set of twins were born a year apart!!!
