RE: John Alley # 13092547
Hi Megan,
I hope it is a typo because if it isn't then it's a mess!

Using, I found his death certificate index:
Name: John Gideon Alley
Event Type: Death
Event Date: 28 Nov 1940
Event Place: San Joaquin, California, United States
Birth Date: 10 Jun 1890
Birthplace: New York
Gender: Male
Father's Name: Alley
Mother's Name: Ashford

I also found him in the census:
1900 in Delaware, NY
1910 in Chicago, IL
1920 and 1930 in Stockton, CA
1940 in Lodi, CA

You can transfer him to me if you want to. He is only distantly related to me. His grandmother and my gg-gf were siblings in New Hampshire making us 2nd cousins twice removed.
Thanks for responding.

I just took the photo of the headstone and added the memorial so I have no additional information. Sorry. Good luck in your research.

Sorry for the mix-up in that other message--I searched my entries and found those in Alton. Now I see that it's the two I had transferred to you that you're wondering about. I took those pictures yesterday...

RE: Jeremiah Lee
Jeremiah Lee, son of Samuel & Mary Eveland, was born 11 Aug 1816 in Illinois. He married Sally Hale in 1835 in Madison Co, IL. They had 6 children and he died 7 Aug 1887 in Henry Co IA.

Jeremiah Lee, son of Frederick Lee & Eliza Ann Smith, was born 20 June 1828 in Illinois. He married Martha A. Drewer 2 March 1852 in Iowa. Had 2 children and died 19 Dec 1855. In 1850 census, he was still living with his parents.

Jeremiah Lee, son of Hezekiah Lee & Amanda Morris, was born in 1833 IL, and died before 1864 in IA. I don't have a marriage for him. He was with his parents in 1850 census but not in Hezekiah's will in 1864.

Does this help you? I descend from John P. Lee and Charity Smith. Ronda

Hi Megan,

You're in luck with a relative in the 362nd as they, like others, formed an association after the war. They published a book titled:

"A History of the 362nd Infantry"

If you google it, click on the entry for

They have digitized the book and it can be downloaded to be read on your computer or e-book reader. If you prefer a hard copy, sometimes one will show up at a used bookstore or ebay.

Is your Edward Connors listed here on Find a Grave?

Warm Regards,

Easley Family
Megan, I want to thank you submitting and saving our family information and memorials. It is wonderful to locate people you have heard about. Part of our Easley family moved from OK to CA in 1940. My grandparents spoke many times of the last visit before they moved to CA. They always stayed in contact but never saw each other again. Because of your hard work they are connected again.

RE: Hugo Family
Megan, thank you so very deeply for transferring these individuals to my care. I deeply appreciate it, and I deeply appreciate your work and interest in posting their graves in the first place. Not everyone is as considerate and as understanding as you have been. These are very real people to me; I visit their graves frequently, and I deeply appreciate your consideration.

May God bless you. Thank you so very much again.

RE: Catheys Valley Cemetery
Yes, I noticed that some names on the same headstone are not married. In fact, a contributor linked 2 names together thinking they were husband & wife but after I researched through, one was a baby. It turned out to be the guy's grand-daughter. So I do understand you not wanting to make a correction just based on what's printed on the headstone & thanks for being so conscientious.

I actually thought that I had more for you but the 3 I sent you on Friday were the last corrections I had for you. Most were for Steve and I sent him the last 22 so after those corrections are done, that's all I have.

Thanks so much for your good work, Patsy

Floyd Lee
Good Morning Megan, Thank you for your note about Floyd's birthdate. He actually was born in 1187 (not in 1877 as noted on his marker). He had been turned into a vampire in Cordoba (Spain) as a young man and spent the last part of his life here in Tennessee. In a moment of patriotic fervor and concern for his sons who had already enlisted in the army to fight the Nazi threat, he infiltrated the army and met a terrible death in Italy, which he happened to know well having enjoyed the beauty and wine of Italy many many times. He led a squad through the backways of a small village in Asti' to rescue a squad of trapped soldiers, his 314th son among them, and met his tragic end.

Naturally, when some of his 'truth' got out, his bravery and heroism could not be acknowledged and as is often the case, a coverup was ordered. And so, he is buried here with a birthdate of 1877 to limit the likelihood of anyone making the connection to the brave soldier of Asti, and other engagements both large and small.

I have taken your sage advice and "corrected" his birthdate as it appears on his memorial. Regrettably, even today, it is best to leave his "true" history a secret.

Turnover & Care
Hi Megan,
Thanks very much for turning over the care of my parents, wife, and in-law grave sites to me. The important thing is that someone does it, so that those that are waiting to be born will have some clues to know from whence they came.

Hello Megan
I know the Peterson family from Hornitos quite well. I was raised in Hornitos (yes one of very few)and the Petersons are related on my Chapman and Elliott sides. I haven't looked at a Peterson-Gann connection. You have opened the door to another mystery for me.

Thank you for the Schaefers and Pauline Robbins
Thank you so very much for taking time to go to the Vacaville-Elmira Cemetery and photographing my husband's paternal grandmother's headstone and the friends who made sure she had a nice burial place. Her son, William Augustus Robbins, would have been pleased to see that the grass around the headstone is thick and green. Thanks again, Linda and Ken Robbins
