RE: Christina Webb
Thank you, I think that is correct. Do you have a source for the marriage as I couldn't find one. I know some families at have that date, but it is not sourced, and I have found that people just tend to copy other people without checking the facts. Christina's first son was born 28 Sep 1818, so I'm not sure that 28 Apr 1818 is a correct marriage date unless you have found a source such as a marriage record? Thanks again.

Christina Webb- Oakview Cemetery
Hi. Just wondering where you got the birth date for Christina Webb (memorial # 99030481) of 1785? The Oakview online cemetery record has 2 Christine Webb's. (Christena & Christine). Christine was born 25 Aug 1885 and died 14 Dec 1887 (memorial # 100176218) and the other is the one you created and you have the same date of death. The other Christena in the cemetery listing was buried in 1863. I think you have the same person as memorial 100176218 as you list the grave location as H2-10-6. Can you help, please? Thanks,

Last night I saw that you had added some information to his memorial and I see that you added more today. Thank you. The Duffee family has proven slightly difficult to research with the different spellings of their last name.

Thanks again for adding the information.

RE: Mary S. Maule
Memorial # 2143118 (Piersol Cemetery, North English, Iowa, Iowa, USA) While researching this name I came across her marriage in England Marriages 1538-1973 which listed her name as Mary Spiring Burwood, so I added it to this Memorial. Thanks!

RE: Mary S. Maule
I have edited the Memorial # 2143118 of Mary S. Maule birth dates and death dates. It clearly states on her tombstone that she DIED on Jan 15 1883 and was 82 years of age when she died, therefore, I changed her date of death to Jan 15, 1883, and estimated her date of birth as 1801. It seems to me by looking at the pictures added to the Memorial that two gravesites have been mixed. There are two completely different grave markers. I found this error while research my family history.

Curtis W. Knight-George W. Knight confusion
Memorial #8715092

I believe after comparing the letter, "G" in three areas of the headstone identified as Curtis W. Knight, that this is actually George W. Knight.

Comparison of Facts for George W. Knight/Curtis W. Knight:

A George W. Knight was born in Maryland, shown on the following Census: in 1880 living in Washington, Wapello, Iowa, age 65, 1885 living in Washington, Wapello, Iowa, age 70 and 1895 living in Eldon, Wapello, Iowa,, age 80. On the Iowa, Select Deaths/Burials 1850-1990, a George W. Knight, is listed as married, age 88, born 1815, died 6-10-1903,in Eldon, Iowa. According to an Ancestry Family Tree, a George William Knight, was born in Baltimore County, Maryland, on 8-10-1814, Son of George William Knight 1775-1850 and Leah Unknown. A George W. Knight m. a Martha Watkins in Ottumwa, Wapello, Iowa, on 7-12-1865. Another Iowa, Select Marriages states that a George Knight m. a Martha Miller, and they had a Child, Clara, which might be the same Clara listed in the 1880 FC. in Washington, Wapello, Iowa, with GW and Martha Knight, and Children, Frank L. Clara, and GW Knight. The Ancestry Family Tree gives the Spouses/Children of George William Knight and (First Wife, Maria Miller and six Children, and Second Wife, Lucretia Earson and one Daughter), and Third Wife Martha Watkins Knight and Children, Frank Leslie, Clara Ann, and George William Knight III. The names/dates of the Children of George do not match the Children of Curtis, according to the docs. I've seen. If there's anyone out there, who is a descendant of Curtis W. Knight, and can provide documentation for his Parents, which some Family Trees state were Curtis Franklin Knight and Hannah DAVIESS/DAVIS, I would really appreciate the info!

Curtis W. Knight was born 1814/1815, in Virginia or West Virginia. He is listed as Curtis in the 1856 Iowa, State Census Collection, 1836-1925, living in Charleston, Lee, Iowa with Wife, Martha, and Children, HF/Hannah F., Elizabeth and Mary/Marietta Knight; He is Curtis in the 1860 FC, living in Green, Wapello, Iowa, PO Ottumwa, with Wife, Martha, and Children, Elizabeth M., Marietta, and Friend Knight. He is Curtis in the 1870 FC, living in Montrose, Lee, Iowa, with his Wife, Martha, and Children, Elizabeth, Marietta, Friend, Joseph, Martha, and Ida Knight.

RE: Jacob Wittenmyer's
I don't know if he was in the Civil War. The marker is there, but I've seem markers by the stones of children under the age of 5 years. There was no mention of it on his stone.

Wish I could be of more help.

Christian Nosler # 20297150
Hi Again - Guess what. I found a document that says he WAS the son of Martha Snavely Nosler - in fact it was a document about her family. They were neighbors with Boston Nosler and she married one of his sons - John. This document also says that Christian was born in 1804 - the 4th child of the couple. I can send it to you via email if you like. Do you have anything showing his date of birth?

I'd never even had Margaret Ann Nosler on my tree, so you've really been helping me get things straight.
Thanks again. - Janet

James Harvey Nosler # 126488896
Hi Mary - I just got an email from Find A Grave saying you had a suggestion about this memorial but I can't figure out what the suggestion is. I'm still kind of new to this system, so please help me understand this. Thanks.
And I'm in a quandary about the bio for James Nosler, MD that says his parents were Boston & Sophia Nosler. I don't think that is accurate. I'm still checking as much as I can find on the subject. His mother would have been over 50 if she were his mother. I don't thing that happened.
But I loved reading the bio - so much great info in it. Thank you so much for doing that! It makes me want to see that Wapello History book! Wow!

RE: My Civil War page for Henry C. Nosler
Wow. That is completely fantastic to see that bio of Henry Clay. I appreciate you typing and adding that so very much! If you send me your email address, I'll send you another photo I have of him, with his siblings, taken later in his life. But that photo I posted on Find A Grave that you included on your FB post is the best picture I have of him.
I can't wait to see the bio of James!!

Thank you so much for doing this! I like your FB page. It's very nice that you guys have that page to honor the Civil War vets from your county.

Hello Mary - I"m curious if you have documentation that his mother was Martha Snavely Nosler. If so, I'd be very curious to see it, please. On my family tree I show his parents as Boston Nosler & Sarah Kirk Nosler (Nausler) # 25718359.
Thank you for any information about this.
