Joe Warne
Mary Warne
Naomi, I did some checking, the 1860 Census does show Mary living with Joseph Warne, she is age 80. I blow up the grave stone photo and was able to read it as 1865 for the year of death and sates she died at 84 years. The Warne Genealogy must be in correct the 1856 date must have the last two numbers reversed. Thanks for finding this error.

Eva Martha Clapp
This is the rough info that was told to my by my mother in law Ellenor Maud Clapp Colvin, who is her half sister.

Eva supposedly married a man by the name of Martin Karstetter, date unknown. She married a man by the name of Albert Eugene Sheridan around 1947 or 1948. He was the uncle to Ellenor and brother of Ellenor's mother Lena Ellenor Sheridan Clapp.

Eva and Albert ( known as Gene) had a son by the name of David Eugene Sheridan abt June or July 1949. Eva left Albert, took the son, where it is unknown. Gene committed suicide 21 June 1959 in Bingen Washington. Burial was in the Willamette National Cemetary, Portland, Ore

If any info known about these folks I sure would like to know as I have hit a brick wall.

Thanks renolady cide

Leonard Ralph Clapp
Thanks for the updated information on his first marriage. His daughter, Ellenor Maud Clapp Colvin was my mother in law and she knew next to nothing about his first marriage. I guess it was not discussed in the family.
Do you have any information on Daughter born to Leonard Ralph and Bessie Barnes? All I have is her name Eva Martha Clapp born abt July 1915. Any family history from this marriage would greatly appreciated.

Thanks again

Benjamin Ratcliff
Ms Emmich,
Thank you for your good work on FindAGrave.
I am very curious as to the location of the memorial marker for Benjamin Ratcliff, my Grandson Ryan and I have done reading and research about him and his family. We have visited the graves of his wife, his victims and the Bordenville vicinity. We searched for the marker in what we thought might be the location to no avail. We roamed the Ratcliff Gulches north of Bordenville. Are you willing to share a clue?
Thank ou.

Yes, you are probably right about the age funny. Love that old stone. Sudie Ratcliff was my grandmother's good friend when she was young and I remember as a child laughing at her name. I loved to hear my grandparents talk about family in Morgan County. Grandmother also had an Aunt named Theny. Funny how areas produce such names and then from fondness, they are perpetuated.

Hi Thanks for the correction on Nathan's headstone. I was able to research Nathan with the new birth date and found him on several censuses. Thank, Jen

Readers of the American you will remember the articles which have appeared in newspapers from time to time. She was upright, conscientious lady and was loved by all who knew. A son and daughter are left to mourn her loss.
