Sounds like she was waiting for you to find her... on her and the Carson family's behalf, thank you very much. Great job!

RE: Isabela Jane Carson
Wow! That's great, Brent. It appears that she was 3 years 11 months 3 days old... is that what you think, looking at the grave marker? Well done!

RE: Look who I found
Well, you sure did!! How about that? Way to go!! I had no idea they had another child. Did you just dig his stone up today?? Since Solomon Shultz came "west" in 1856 (according to his son's bio) that little fellow must have died before then. I wonder if he was stillborn since he wasn't named?
I'm sure you already know this, but sometimes the name of the child is written in raised lettering across the top edge of the stone - where it receives the most weathering. Any chance there is anything there? It really doesn't look like the kind of tombstone that would have writing on the top though.
When I received your note, the name of your cemetery rang a bell with me......I wonder if Solomon Shultz (father of the child you found) is a son of Balzer/Balsar Schultz/Shultz who is also buried at Madison Truro Cemetery and has a cenotaph at Long Cemetery in Belleview, Calhoun County, Illinois? The cemetery Solomon is buried in is about 10 miles from from the cenotaph for Balzer Shultz at Long Cemetery.
Any thoughts?
Thank you for your hard work finding the tombstone and letting me know about it!! It looks like you are working on restoring the cemetery, yes?
Your friend,

Thank you for the transfer of John Randolph & Alice Swim Morford in Greenlawn Cemetery. I appreciate being able to manage the memorials of my great, great grandparents.

Thank you for the correct cemetery, I just got home yesterday from open heart surgery and was unable to move the memorial earlier.

Just happened across another memorial to a Civil War veteran that you were instrumental in updating and photographing. Haven't heard from you in a while, so wanted to say thanks for all your hard work to make sure our veterans are remembered and promoting Green Lawn Cemetery.

RE: Infant So
Glad it all worked out! I think those "glitch" memorials will keep showing up now and again. I lost 6 Wilsons on June 21. Have no idea where they are! :-)

RE: Carson twins in Madison Truro Cemetery
Hello. Unsure of what may have caused the deaths of the twins. I believe they were children of James & Calista Stephenson Carson.

RE: Balser/Balsar Schultz/Shultz
Okay - thanks! I wasn't sure what to do about it. I appreciate the help.

RE: Balser/Balsar Schultz/Shultz
Thanks! How should I handle this? He's obviously buried in Ohio...should I delete my memorial in Long Cemetery in Illinois and add my photo to his actual burial location and mention that it is a cenotaph? It's kinda weird....usually, folks would say, Hannah, wife of Balser Schultz, blah, blah, blah - not actually put all his info on another tombstone...or I could completely delete mine and mention on Hannah's memorial that he is actually buried in Ohio and has a memorial(cenotaph) stone at Long? I could use an opinion.....

Did you also dig that stone up? It looks FANTASTIC, especially considering it's age.....I appreciate it if you did...and for cleaning it up as well. No matter what, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE PHOTOGRAPH!! (And the note letting me know you had added it...)

Thank you for fulfilling the photo request. Did you happen to take a photo of his wife's stone - Nellie Rorick Murphy? I have a photo request open for her as well. Thanks again.

RE: Harters/McKendree Cemetery
Hello Brent:
You wrote....
1st: "Oops, I meant to say click on the edit button. Then a tab appears on my contributor tools and I can click accept button."
2nd: "What is the source of your information? My computer is down and I have not figured my new phone out yet. If you have some documentation please send in a sac. With my phone I am able to accept sac's."

I am trying to figure out what you are asking. There are no supporting documents per'se.
What I sent you first is not info applicable to using the edit button. The sources would have been linking parents and spouses on the McKendree Cemetery listing and some or most verified by using online info by and Heritage Quest census records. As far as I know, documents cannot be sent via SAC. Is this what you wanted to know?

RE: Harters
When I discovered the McKendree Cemetery on Findagrave and realized no family members were linked, I looked at each one that had photos stating "wife of" or "(child)of" and decided to try and accomplish linking them up. Some were verified using online records on the Familysearch website and census records on Heritage Quest. I hope this answers your question. Good luck with that new phone!

RE: Re: Baltimores and Whites
I am starting to do offset lines a little bit, but so far have not run into any of the Gutches. I have about 3 distant confirmed DNA White line relatives on 23andme DNA website. Two of them married each other, not knowing they were distant cousins on the White line. I am trying to add their descendant ancestors into findagrave, but some graves are unknown and I am running into a few people who won't link people up. I tried making duplicates with links hoping for merges and findagrave deleted whole trees while ignoring the fact the other people own my DNA relatives and won't link them up. I took a bunch of pics of several small graveyards, but I don't really have time to list them or try to match them to listings like I thought I would. I find more and more details to research in my tree and my first cousin's trees and there is no end to the details I can find on and I have about 2000 cousins on 23andme and so far have only figured out about 4 or 5 of them as to matching family trees. That is why I am trying to flesh out the details of the descendants, which is harder than going backwards sometimes. There is a void of death records online between about 1951 and whenever social security started publishing deaths online.Some of my DNA cousins might be from second marriages of ancestors or from affairs, etc. Hard to say. Still it is interesting when you figure one out.I am lucky I got in on 23andme when they were still giving health reports. Now the FDA stopped that for new people.

Re: Baltimores and Whites
I am sorry you are sick. I had that also. It is just that you did not have the sickness several months ago when I first asked for updates and links. That is why people get upset with you.Yes, it is nice that you got them gravestones and listed them. It is very important to those of us on the Mayflower line (or any DNA family tree line really) that family members be linked up so that other relatives can see their family tree for free without having to do all the work over and over by different DNA relatives.As for the other relative who contacted you....I don't have any known relatives on here who contacted you, but there are a lot of people on this Peregrine White (first baby born on the Mayflower) line. donna white

Elizabeth (Rannells) Knauss gravestone photo
May I have your permission to download the photo of the gravestone of Elizabeth (Rannells) Knauss (Memorial # 87451834)?
I would like to upload the photo into my Ancestry family tree.
Thank you for your consideration.

Re: James Baltimore and Elizabeth and Mary White
Is there a reason why you are refusing to do the updates and links I requested several times? I get my information from Also you can subtract the death date and the age to get the birth date. This is a line to the Mayflower that is in my family tree. Many people have commented on the memorial page about who Mary White is . She is Mary Ann Baltimore White who was married to George W. White who was the son of Samuel White who was the son of Alexander White Sr. who was the son of Jonathan White who was the son of Peregrine white, the first baby born on the Mayflower. These are not just numbers to win brownie points on findagrave to me. They are my ancestors and I want to see them linked together so that people can see their family tree and where their ancestors are buried for free without having to pay for and do a lot of work to find out like I did. Why is that so hard for you to help out with? I see where you linked the Baltimores together and added Elizabeth Hardin, but nothing else.This tree is well documented by many other people's hard work at genealogy.It is very frustrating when there are probably professional genealogists on here who want to "own" other people's DNA ancestors and the last thing they want people to do is to see their family tree for free.donna white
