Stephen Bailey Gallea

I believe that his 2nd wife, Lavina, was Lovinda "Lavina" Hine, daughter of William Riley Hine and his wife Clarissa Stuart. She was born in Geauga Co., OH.

bio of Wm from "History of Geauga and Lake Counties, Ohio" includes this note: Of his eight children, three of whom were born previous to the arrival in this country, all are living but two, as follows: ... Almira, wife of Samuel F. Baker, living in Pennsylvania; Electa, unmarried, living with a brother; Lavina, became the wife of Stephen Gallea, of Kansas; ...
Mrs. Hines died December 7, 1877.

Somewhere in my notes I have her surname as "Secrest". I'll have to locate that reference.

Downing photos
You're welcome for the photos. Downing isn't a weird name or anything, but it's not a real common one. There's a few other Downings out there and I added a photo to another Downing Find A Grave memorial. Who knows, they could connect. Yong Cha Downing memorial #597352. There's several more Downings that I'll try to photograph next time I go out there.

Thank you so much for the explanation. I did not think to look at her children's Social Security claim. We try so hard to verify the edits and truly appreciate the support documentation.

The edit to Caroline has been done!
Thanks again.

Mehta Behrend
Cheryl, what is your connection to Metha Habermann Behrend? She is my husband's grandmother. We're puzzled you have her same last name. We're doing a family tree and wonder if you're a relative.

It also lists him as in Liberty Cemetery. Need to find out for sure. Guess we should ask for headstone photo request.

Abraham Peters
Hello, I am the grandson of Dr. Irvin Peters and am trying to find information on Abraham Peters' ancestry. I know according to the census he was born in Kentucky. That's all I have on him. As for Almira, she was born to a Daniel Schull and a Sarah or Mary Jervis?

Any help would be appreciated. Sincerely, Randall Peters

re: Clayborne Curtis
Yes you are correct about his birth/death dates. I have the dates on the memorial, but I quoted the information on the bio and left as is. Supposedly it is a quote from a book and I don't want to change the quote. Many thanks.

Bruce Stewart
Parents of Sarah Curtis Hunt 1791-1868
Thanks for the generous sharing of your research. I am new to this. I think I have learned that Sarah Curtis Hunt is my 2nd Great grandmother through Sarah Jane Hunt Stewart b 4/20/1826, m to Irwin Stewart 11/16/1845, d 7/5/1907 and mother of my Grandfather, Charles Stewart. Can you tell me more about what you know James Curtis and Elizabeth Coffinberry and the several generations I find on Find A Grave created by Stephen Curtis and maintained by you. Are there birth, christening, marriage, death, or burial records or family bible records? Thank you for any help or direction you may have for me.

Karen Fry & Raymond Miller
Wondering if you know where we can find ...

Hello Cheryl.

Let me start by apologizing for the long message.

My husband, Raymond Glen Miller, is a cousin of your cousin Nancy Overbey Linville. We live in California but have been actively researching the Millers and the Overbeys, to name a few. Ray's grandmother was Cora Overbey. She married William Miller. Both died in the early 1900s and their death certificates say they are in Piqua, location unknown. We visited 2 years ago hoping to locate their graves. No markers. We contacted the person named on the poster nailed to the tree. He helped as much as he could but could not tell us where they are buried. We visited with cousin Nancy on our last visit a few weeks ago and acquired CDs of the cemeteries. They show Ray's grandparents are in Piqua.

What we need is to know who to contact that can get us a map of the cemetery and tell us who anything about the unmarked spots in Piqua. Ownership documents may help. Cora's father was Oscar Perry Overbey, son of Richard.

Giving us direction of any kind would be fantastic.

Thank you so much in advance.

Karen Fry Miller on behalf of Raymond Glen Miller

Re: John
Hi, Cheryl!

My grandmother was Clio Alverti Hays who married John and preceded him in death. I was only 3 when she died so I don't remember anything about the two of them, but have been sort of trying to find things out. Was John Behrend your father-in-law?

More Ray's in Salathiel's plot
There is also a George Albert Ray in this plot with Salathiel and Della. George and Della both died in 1886 and about the same age so perhaps they were married. Obits didn't name names. George's memorial is 24222278, with obit I found.

RE: Salathiel Curtis Ray Photo
Cheryl, just ran across a Mrs. Della Ray, who is also buried in this Ray plot. She died 4-29-1886 at the age of 23 years. Do you know how she is connected to Salathiel? Her memorial is #24236498. Thanks.

RE: Salathiel Curtis Ray Photo
You're welcome! Since he was a CW vet, I imagine a stone could be arranged for him. I know a few years back one could request one even if no relationship but not sure that still is true.

Cornellius Sylvester Curtis
Memorial# 109170242
Hello Cheryl,
I sent through "edit" an article published on C.S. Curtis for his memorial. I have found that the "edit" requests don't always send the contributor a notice/request through email.
I have another interesting article about him that I found in my Great Grandmother's Bible. It is a page torn from a book of some sort. I can email it to you if you would like.

Salathiel Curtis Ray
I was able to find a plot marker for Mr. Ray with his initials on it, but he has no regular stone. I added a couple of photos showing the small marker and the overall area where he is. I felt very fortunate to have found a plot marker as that area has so many unmarked graves.
