Thank you for visiting dear Brenda. It means a lot to me that people take the time to visit her for her Angel Day and for visiting my other memorials.

RE: Laura Elizabeth Geer Scovill Robbins Eby
Sherry - So nice to "meet" you as well. Isn't technology great. Without this website and, I don't know how I would have ever been able to "connect" with other cousins - much less know what happened to them. Laura was my 1st cousin 4X removed, so she was probably no-one I would have ever heard about, but now, it's so great to be able to search (and often, find) the long-lost relatives.
Thanks for your mention of the connection with the creator of Thomas Geer(s)' memorial. I hope there is some information about his wife, Matilda. As I mentioned earlier, the last trace I can find of her was in the 1885 Kansas State Census where she and Thomas were living with their son, William.
I have discovered the "whereabouts" of this William (Find-A-Grave memorial # 107381355). Unfortunately, he seems to have died without any family members and had been living in the Jackson County, KS home for the aged/infirm. Upon his death in 1936, he donated his body to science through the College that operated in the area (I can't recall the name at this time). His death certificate is available through the Missouri Secretary of State's website. His death certificate indicates that no one knew his parent's names or their birth locations. How Sad!! You may want to connect with that memorial as well since he would be another of your cousins too!
Please stay in touch. I hope we are able to place Thomas and Matilda together again as a family and link their children to them as well.
Thanks, again.
"Cousin" Mark Gentry

Laura Elizabeth Geer Scovill Robbins Eby
Hello Sherry - Thank you so much for the memorial you created for Laura Elizabeth Geer Scovill Robbins Eby (Memorial # 9421365). I believe she is my 1st cousin 4 X removed. She was born in Kentucky (12/12/ 1845-1847) to Thomas and Matilda Patterson Geer(s). My research into the Geer(s) family has led me to Kansas in search of my long-lost KY relatives and you seem to have found one of them!! I have suggested an edit fot the Father of Laura (Thomas Geer - Memorial # 100097118) however, I have been unable to find her mother (Matilda Patterson Geer). The last time I was able to find her was in an 1885 Kansas State Census living in Ward 5 of Wyandotte County, KS with her husband Thomas and a son, William. (Unfortunately the transcription of the record shows their surname as Greis, due to poor handwriting I'm sure). Would you happen to have any record of Matilda (possibly listed as Mattie) after 1885?
Again, thank you for your assistance.

I have a headstone for Steve now and posted it on his page.

Added by Phyl on Mar 25, 2015 8:43 PM

Awww Sorry!
It's okay. I wasn't feeling the best because I have been compiling databases of murdered children and I am feeling a little sensitive anyway. There are so MANY and so many with no memorials at all. It is upsetting and I am getting obsessed. I didn't mean to upset you!!!

Peace out! If you need anything, let me know. I think we have a Scovill Hill Cemetery here in town (Bloomington, IL) and I was wondering if any of them are your Scovills? I don't exactly live there but it is nearby and if you'd like, I would be happy to go over there and see what I can find. Please, accept my apologies.

Dear Sherry,

I can't seem to find it now but it was a child's page. I shouldn't have said anything because it is something a lot of people do on here: create a memorial and then tell others what they may or may not post there. Memorials that are owned by this website too, so that is another issue I guess? Anyway, sorry again do what thou wilt.

No hard feelings, hopefully.

Added by lisse on Mar 24, 2015 11:01 AM

Dear Sherry,

I understand how you feel but I am tired of seeing people use this website in order to lecture others and I don't agree that a memorial is the proper place to vent your frustrations with the human race. If your photos are so precious, then why are you posting them on the internet? Just saying. Sorry.


Added by lisse on Mar 23, 2015 11:06 PM

I agree
I have thousands of my photos on ancestry that means I have thousands of my family members who are thieves. I gladly let people use my grave stone photos if they give me credit so people will know where to go to find more info, and I know them to. And I think if some spent $ and time taking photo they at least deserve credit. Some times I travel several hundred miles and go thru untold misery to take photos like walking all over entire cemetery's I think its very little to ask to be given credit. Any way that's my rant of the day, thank for letting me vent. Jarrott

Hi,Sherry and thanks for your suggestions on the Jones family. If you'd like to manage these Memorials they were photographed on a random trip to that cemetery and are not my family. Otherwise, I'll get to the suggestions....Kim

No, I am not sure, hope to confirm.
Reference: Flora (nee-Grossheider) married Thomas Lee. Think she later married Robert Donnington.
Any of this sound familiar?
