Dear Mr. Jim Agar,
Your grandfather's name appears in "The Story of Wake Island" by Devereaux. He was stationed on Wake prior to the surrender and was listed as KIA, in this book. You may already have this information; But, one never knows for sure...

You can also request his full personnel file (OMPF) from the National Archives. When I requested my grandfather's (also on Wake) file, it had his boot camp photo in it (among other things)!!

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to correspond.

Sincerely,
Irene

A friend of this lady, clued me in as to the connections, and I am still working on the others in the cemetery, attempting to see how they related. There are a bunch of people in the same lot.

Some of your kin appear to be buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA.

I am willing to make transfers to you.

Theresa
Also, Theresa married Edward Ricard in 1845, according to Archdiocese records. I was wondering when she married William Agar. It is interesting William and Theresa named their first child after George Price. My ancestors, Martin Crane and Anastasia Price also named their son after George Price: that was George Price Crane. I understand that was the Irish custom, to name the first children after the mother's parents. The Prices were Irish. I do not know how much time they spent in Kentucky, but originally they came from Co. Cork, so we have been told.

Theresa
Theresa was sister to Anastasia, Ellen, Katherine and George Price. Their father, George Price lived in Kentucky for some time, not sure when. Anastasia married my ancestor, Martin Crane. Theresa's mother was Mary Price who died in 1858 or 1859. I am looking into the Price family and Cranes in the antebellum years.

Henry E. and Bertha Savage Agar
Dear Mr. Agar: I am researching William Henry Kenyon whose wife Anna Savage was first married to Charles Agar, reputedly the brother of Henry Ellsworth Agar who married Anna's sister Bertha. Would you happen to have a picture of Charles and Anna? If so, would you permit me to use it for my book on the 110th Regiment NYSV, of which Kenyon was a member? I will be most grateful and you may be sure I will give you a photo credit if the picture is included. Many thanks for any information you may be able to provide. Best regards, Natalie J. Woodall, PhD

Lester J. Scott
Edna E. (Soulby) Scott married Charles James Agar Aug 26, 1919 in Genesee Michigan. Her son Lester J. Scott was living with Charles and Edna in the 1930 census. After Charles died Edna lived with her father Elmer Soulby (1940 census of Flint). It looks like Lester J. Scott was living in Mount Pleasant at the Mt. Pleasant State Home and Training School (1940 Census). There is a chance this is another Lester J. Scott, but this Lester J. was 25 with a grade two education suggesting a mental challenge of some sort.

I'm related to Victoria Hyatt (2nd cousin 3x removed) but was just curious about the second wife Edna and her son Lester and did some digging and found this information that I thought might interest you. Perhaps you know all of this already.

John Funkhouser
You provided some additional information about John Funkhouser and added a photo to his memorial. Are you, by any chance, related to him in some way. If so, would you be interested in corresponding with an 80 year old woman named Ethel Newberry, or do you already know her? She wrote to me because of the memorial that I created and John was apparently her half-brother. She never knew what happened to him. If you are related and have more information about him, I'm sure she would be interested.

If could let me know one way or the other, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks and have a great day.

I was in the Elkland Cemetery and took the picture you requested for O'Camb. I also found a Wendel O'Camb but there is no memorial for him.

Jim,

Thank you very much for contacting me regarding your belief that Joyce Wheeler may be the sister of John Agar. I agree with you and have provided further confirmation via her marriage license/certificate & the death certificate of her son, Mark Wheeler listing of mother's maiden name "Agar."

Best wishes,
Susan

I posted the picture of his grave. Just in case you need the Hebrew translated it reads: Meir Zelig ben Rabbi Yisroel.
