Thomas Davis grave robbery Onawa IA
Hi, I saw your post on Find a Grave about Thomas Davis of Onawa, you are correct in that it is Iowa not Illinois as I found the same article in the Omaha World Herald 27 Nov 1893 referencing Onawa Ia. I can send the article if you would like as I am unable to copy to this message. My email is Thanks, Kim Davis

Again...thanks so much for this additional newspaper article. I was wondering how this murder could have been done without the mother's knowing.

Thanks so much for posting the "follow-up" on the grave robbery of Infant Bigley. It turned my stomach to read it but sure will make my husband's genealogy interesting to say the least.

Just found your posting of Infant Bigley which was a newspaper article from the Detroit Free Press and dated October 16, 1897. This Bigley family is part of my husband's family. I was wondering if you had any "follow-up" article on this grave robbery?

RE: Sarah SWAN Ailes #49799760
Wow! Michigan
Okay, you've talked to Greene Co. historical & genealogical societies?

What about putting the cemetery on the National Historical Registry?
That would bring attention & access to funds to restore.

Thanks again; this really does upset me; with so much history there from our families. And these people were the "firsts"...

Re Sarah SWAN Ailes #49799760
Hey Jack,
Never expected to read the "Photo" message on Sarah's memorial.
This cemetery has so many of my 4th great grandma's family connections.
I don't understand why it is not being taken under the wing of a historical or genealogical society! This is a disgrace. These are members of pioneer Carmichaels area families, all documented in Leckey's Ten Mile volume.
Our connections are Hughes, Swan & Van Meter.

I assume you could not find her grave marker; I am saddened...for what is being lost...without documentation on Find A Grave.

Thank you,

Matthew Cummins
I noticed you had the obituary and photo of Matthew Cummins, my great granfather's brother. Would you be able to scan these for me and send them in an email? I am trying to piece together the Cummins family, and have very few clues!

Sarah Lewis in Redford Cemetery
I see you picked this memorial up from the MIA Laura, and wonder if you are related in some way. She is related to me and connected to my mother's family in a number of ways, and I have traced her to your memorial. I know her parents and quite a bit about her life. Her parents were Sarah Sturman and John Currin. She married a George Westlake and had two children with him, and apparently after he died, married a Mr. Lewis, who I don't know anything about.

I have reason to believe that the above noted grave that you have kindly added last Aug, belongs to my great uncle (he was my grandfather's brother) born in Canada, but spent the majority of his life in the US. I would appreciate having the honor of managing this grave along several others that I have. Please let me know, thanks.

I saw your posting on this. I've just discovered 3 Hirschlieb's committed suicide all by hanging.
Lena's obit doesn't state suicide but her death certificate does. (I don't a copy of that one.)
