Thomas Walter Beebe
Hi Robert,

Just wanted to let you know that the mother of Thomas W. Beebe was Phoebe Walker Beebe rather than Elvira. Phoebe was Hiram Beebe's first wife. She died sometime after 1841 after having 11 children. Orson H. Beebe was born in 1841 and he was her last child. Hiram Beebe remarries on 21 May 1848, in Cuyahoga, Ohio to Elvira Wheeler. He has two children with Elvira. Eugene and Martha E. Beebe.

I liked all the great work you have shared on findagrave. My ancestor is Sally Ann Beebe, Hiram and Phoebe's daughter.

Thank you,
Colleen Wells

Eldad Smith
Hi I think you have a typo on Eldad Smith's memorial. You have his wedding day as his death date and then 2 children born after that. :)

Andrew Thomason
Young Zemeriah "Bud" Thomason & Clara Thomason Franklin
To clarify about Young Zemeriah (I'm convinced that "Young" is actually a contemporary way of saying "Jr"):

His first wife was/is somewhat of a mystery woman. Her name is given as Nancy Jane McCoy (1836-1866). There is no documentary evidence for her other than the six children she shared with Young Zemeriah. The "tale" infers that she was of Cherokee descent.

His second wife was Mary "Polly" (wait for it) Thomason/Basham (or Bassam)/Thomason. She was the daughter of Hiram Thomason (1812-1890) and Rebecca Montgomery (1813-1880). She married first Zedekiah Carroll Basham and after his death she married her 1st cousin Young Zemeriah.

As to Clara Thomason Franklin:

The date of birth given on your memorial site is off by a month. It should be May rather than March. Compare with the gravestone of her twin sister, Sarah Thomason.

Young Zemeriah "Bud" Thomason
It appears from your narrative that the decedent was married twice; however, it appears from your family links that the decedent was married to the following three wives: (1) Mary Polly Thomason Thomason, (2) Nancy Jane McCoy Thomason, and (3) Mary A. Thomason Thomason. Am I correct in assuming that Mary Polly Thomason Thomason and Mary A. Thomason Thomason were the same person?

Rogers et al

I just went to the website memorial you created for New York Firefighters, and am most impressed with the thoroughness of your work to say nothing of the tribute itself. Please forgive the question I asked in my previous note. It is clear to me that you have researched every detail you have identified, and that I only need to follow your research and find the sources myself.

Thank you for helping me break through some brick walls that I had confronted in my novice research thus far.

Rogers, Pemberton, Lord lineage

I was following a findagrave link from my 4th great grandparents Caleb Morgan & Lydia Rogers, and found a virtual treasure trove of ancestors, whose memorials you have created. I am simply overwhelmed and impressed with your wonderful work and research.

I hope this is not too insulting a question, but may I ask you how certain you are of dates and marriages tracing Lydia's ancestors back as far as you have gone? I would very much like to add all this information to my MORGAN family tree and I have become quite obsessed with insuring sources of information, so I hope you are not put off by my question.

James Rogers
Hi, I have been researching James Rogers. I have multiple parents listed for him. Some have Thomas Rogers and Alice Cosford for him, others Thomas Rogers and Grace Mckim. This is the first I have seen John Rogers and Elizabeth Bostwick. As I can't find any sources for Thomas, Alice and Grace, I was wondering if you might have a source for the information stating that John and Elizabeth are the parents of James Rogers.

Thank you for your help

The following is on the Memorial page for John P Thomason...I think the date might be wrong as the first Indian removals from the east were done in 1831...with other removals following in 1832 and I think 1838...

I was so excited to see this bit of family history and was eager to share it with other family members...cqan you leet me know if this is indeed the right date or not so I can keep my records straight? Thank you for all the memorials you have posted for the Thomason families..

"In 1851, five of John Thomason's sons (Zemeriah, Hiram, James A., Young, and Henry D.) migrated with their spouses and 42 children from Georgia to (what is now) Boone County, Arkansas. The group traveled from Georgia with a U.S. Government escort moving Indians to the Oklahoma Territory. This was the beginnings of the many Thomason families in Arkansas today."

Dear Mr. Fickies,

Your presence at John's memorial service will never be forgotten. Your speech brought John's memory to life for me. He was a real person and you were so right that his family meant everything to him. His parents died young, and it was just him and his older siblings left to care for their younger ones. He was a good man.
Thank you so much for being there.

With Sincere Gratitude,

Diana Murphy-Cservak
