Daniel Polley
He may be the grandfather of my ancestor Ira Polley. Did he die in the Civil War at age 72??

John Walter Baltimore at the Oregon State Hospital
Hello, Checking to see if you have found the family of this individual? I'm with a group of volunteers who are seeking out family to give these individuals' unclaimed cremains the dignity of a final resting place with family and/or friends. Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you since you manage this memorial. Sincerely, Janet Johanson

Charles Dewstow
Date of Interment: 09/05/1904, I suggested an edit so he died in 1904.
did you try to search Death certificates? they have them online from 1897-1920?

You can always email the cemetery and ask them what information they have for him in their files. I have gotten info for my own family/ancestors and been able to find funeral homes used and Churches that were used for services to try to do further research.

Hope this helps you.

Photo request
I just started on this site and will be going to De Leon this weekend and take pics if someone else hasn't by then. Debbie 254-485-2325... Stephenville tx. This is so rewarding, even though I tripped and fell my first time out.

Sarah J Breed

I just posted a photo per your request for Sarah J Breed. I had two problems yesterday at the cemetery. One was that there are two Sarah Breeds buried in West Ridgeway Cemetery - I thought I had the one you had requested, and then found the second one, which was the one you wanted. I took more photos when I realized I had the wrong person initially, but it turned out that I also was having some issues with my camera, which I didn't know about until I downloaded the photos and started going through them. Very unfortunately, Sarah's husband was one of the photos that didn't come out. However, he is buried next to her. He has a memorial posted. I doubt I will be able to get back to this cemetery for a while. You might want to request a photo of his marker, and maybe someone else will be able to fill it before I can.

Take care.

Charles Dewstow-mt olivet
Could you be so kind as to add his burial location to his memorial so that it will automatically so up on your photo request for mt Olivet?


Location: Section 26, Lot 151, Space 6

Destow-Mt Olivet cemetery
Could you please use the cemetery database below to get the burial locations for your Mt Olivet photo requests? It keeps the volunteers, me included, out of the Office and makes it more efficient and can get pictures taken faster.

Thanks again

Hey--Although you didn't request a transfer, I'm taking the liberty of transferring Kenneth's memorial to you. You may have more information that you want to enter at a later date and besides, you're related whereas I'm not. Good luck. Rob

Lottie Brown
I saw that you maintain Lottie Brown's grave at Clear Lake Cemetery
Montcalm County.

Do you know who this individual is personally? Are they an ancestor?

I'm trying to find my 3 times great grandmother's death date. She was born Charlotte (Lotta/Lottie) Bessey in about June 1867 or around then... the last I see her is married to her second husband, Albert Rich in 1930. She was first married to Charles Lowe. After 1930 I cannot find her at I'm unsure when she died...but thought maybe she was remarried again.

Please let me know if you know any info.

Frances McComas Broadhurst

Thank you for that information on Frances McComas--I do like to get the memorials and my own database correct so appreciate very much your taking the time to write. Would it be possible for you to scan that SS application page and just email it to me as an attachment? Interesting because I did at one time talk to descendants of this family group and no one mentioned a Frances-but I certainly believe you.

Did she have children with first or 2nd husband? Does anyone have an old photo of her?

Bill Broadhurst
The Estacada Broadhursts just found out today that Bill had died and I located this Find-a-Grave memorial. Because of all the Broadhurst and Lappen entries I assume you are Brian, Bill's son. My husband is Jack, Arnie's brother. We met you a number of years ago when you were beginning your genealogy quest. Thank you for putting all the memorials on the website. I don't know if you are aware that Harry, your grandfather's brother, died in 2009. Keep up the good work. Joanne Broadhurst

Sorry I hit enter and it posted. I wanted to tell you I was raised in Fawn River and plan a visit back this summer but do not know exact date but will see if I can find your relatives headstone and take a pic of it for you. Thanks, Pat Donley

Anthony Rickard (1768-1846)
Thanks for all your great work on the Rickard family history! Looks like you've put in a lot of time on them. Anthony is my (4x) great grandfather as well. (Anthony Rickard->Samuel Rickard->Cynthia Ann Richard->Inez McCool->Marie Burns->James Wegner-> ME.)

I'm curious if you've ever run across any photos of the Rickard family circa 1865-1900? The reason I ask is because I have a portrait that I think "might" be of Samuel Rickard (Anthony's son). It's from a set of two portraits where "I think" the other in the set may be his wife Sarah (Armstrong) Rickard. I have a later portrait of Sarah from 20-30 years later that somewhat matches up.

I'd be glad to email them to you to see what you think (or just to add to your collection). The latter photo of Sarah I've already posted on her Findagrave page.

Thanks again for all your great work.
