Elizabeth Caples Brock 155022199
If you look at your memorials for Robert Green Caples, Sr. and his wife Matilda Eleanor (Tracy) Caples, you will see that I have linked them to their daughter, Elizabeth (Caples) Brock. You mention Elizabeth by name.

My husband and I are documenting burials at Mount Olive Cemetery in my husband's hometown, Troy, Doniphan County, Kansas. We found Elizabeth's broken stone, and for some reason, I was fascinated with her.

Information was easy to find, as her headstone identifies her husband, Benjamin H. Brock. He was a Kansas Territorial Legislator, and biographies for him are readily available online through Google. They identify his wife as Elizabeth Caples, whom he married in Tuscarawas County, Ohio before coming west.

Elizabeth and two of her daughters are all here, and I would be happy to transfer them to you as they are members of your family, not mine. In a case like this, I don't believe adhering to the "direct within x generations" is necessary or even reasonable.

Just let me know.

Burnett family
It appears that two Burnett families traveling the same routes west named their children identical names... leading to a lot of confusion for their descendants! There is another girl named Isabell Burnett in Texas in 1880, only this one is living with her grandparents in Tarrant County rather than with her new husband! The one I am seeking is a cousin of our direct line, and I obviously was provided incorrect information about her husband and children (as I was told they were the same as the husband and children for YOUR Isabell Burnett). Sorry about the edit request!

RE: Otto B Blagg
You are very welcome. It was a pleasure to find Otto Blagg. I should have also added that on the cemetery papers of the plot areas, next to Otto is what I assume his wife but possibly a child. There are two additional names which are similar to one another. But there are two dates as well. So it may be two people besides Otto. I didn't ask. Just noticed when I was searching for the grave. But here they are.

Emma Gladys Blagg 1/11/88

Otto B Blagg 7/20/76

Emma G Blagg 10/20/76

That is how the names are listed on the cemetery plot records. Hope it helps you with your research.

Thanks so much for all your help. Apparently there was a "glitch" as I was making the requests and it locked up for a short period of time. I apologize and thank you for all your help.

Berrys in Amazonia, etc.
Candice, thanks for the prompt attention to the edits I sent. I visited your parents' and sister-in-law's memorials and left tokens. They were obviously lovely people, and you've honored them well with the bios you wrote for them.
