James Faris Memorial
I am looking at the grave stone of Jane Faris and wondering why you have listed it as the grave of James Faris. Since I am not there I cannot tell what all the writing is on the bottom of the stone, but Jane's Father was James McAfee.

This is my family, so I am trying to figure out what is on this stone and whether Jane and David Faris actually had any children.

Thank you, Rita McAfee Conley

Hi Lucy,

I was wondering if you knew the parents of William H. Douglas B:1859 D:1936 ? Doing some family tree research and having some trouble figuring this out! Thank You!

Hazel Deppe #67450296
Hi Lucy--Can you confirm that Hazel is buried in the Percy Village Cemetery? You posted a wonderful picture and I just want to make sure that's where the picture was taken. I had another volunteer report that she couldn't find the grave site. b.t.w. Thank you for the photo.

Theron memorials

While documenting graves in Mount Hope, I noted that duplicate memorials have been created for Elbert Theron Couch Sr. (118338855 and 109782511) and for his wife Ova Couch (118339016 and 109782447). The other contributor was Steven Keller and I am also sending him a message.

I noted this while providing additional information to the memorial for Elbert Theron Couch Jr. (115401736).

Thank you,

C Heilig

William J Donaldson
Hi. You posted a photo of William J Donaldson's grave. I wonder if you know who his parents are? I think it is William Donaldson and Sarah (Hamilton), but have no proof.

Elias Kent Kane
Hi Lucy,

I would like to ask your permission to copy the fine photograph you took of Elias' grave marker at Evergreen Cemetery for my family tree. I would also like to make copies for each of his son's individual memorials that are named on his marker, if that's okay with you?

George Ernest, Lina Marie, Abner, Wilhelm, George E, Ida Caroline, Frederich, Elizabeth and G Magdelena... words cannot really express my feelings for going and getting these photos to add and feel a connection to those before me.

Thanks so very much again, and i truly hope you don't mind that I included the thanks in one...TY,TY,TY,TY,TY,TY,TY,TY,TY,TY...

Thank You!
I want you to know that your efforts are greatly appreciated. I am beginning to wonder whether this indivdual is still living. The husband has deceased so, they may have had their grave markers made before she died. Anyway, your help in my geneology research has still been profitable.

Houge Cemetery
Lucy, A great deal of clearing/cleanup has taken place in Houge Cemetery this winter. Once the temperatures warm a bit, the cleanup will shift to "fine tuning" mode. Gary O'Daniel pointed out W.R. Kirby's marker to me (your memorial #25284236). He expressed a desire to learn more about W.R. Kirby so I did some searching on Ancestry last evening and was able some information. I'm hoping you'll add it to Mr. Kirby's memorial.

W. R. Kirby is William R. Kirby
He was a Union soldier with the rank of private
He was mustered into service on August 25, 1862. At that time his residence was Perry County, MO. He was mustered out of service on June 10, 1865.


He was married to Nancy C. Kirby. She filed for pension benefits as a widow on November 11, 1895.

William R. Kirby died on September 6, 1895.

Thanks much, Laura Duncan

Sarah Jane Boyd Moore
Sarah Jane Boyd was first wife of my great grandfather Frances E. Moore. She's buried in Old Preston Cemetery, Randolph County, IL.
There are two Find-a-Grave Memorials there for her: Nos. 1788407 and 1788409; the data are identical on both.

RE: Nellie Ohms
OK. Thanks. She was my Great-Great Aunt. I assume you were asked to take the pictures of Paul and Martha Ohms (My Great-Great Grandparents) as well? If so, do you know who asked you? And if so, can you pass along my contact info?

Nellie Ohms

My name is John Schmiz. I was wondering if you are related to Nellie Ohms? She was my Great Aunt (My Paternal Grandmothers Aunt - Barbara Ohms-Schmiz).

I have had a terrible time trying to track down family from that side for info for my family tree. If you have any info, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hugh Maxwell
Your record for Find-A-Grave Memorial No. 10346193, is for Hugh Maxwell, in the Menard Cemetery, in Randolph County, Illinois. Your record states that he died Sep. 4, 1855. However, you also provide a photo of the gravestone. I'm not sure that I can read it, but it appears to say "Sept. 4, 1833 - Aged about 56 years."

According to the book titled "Lucien Bonaparte Maxwell: Napoleon of the Southwest," by Lawrence R. Murphy (Univ. of Oklahoma Press, 1983), it states that he died of cholera on "September 4, 1833." The endnote accompanying that info reads as follows:

"Sangamo Journal (Springfield), September 14, 1833. Morrison, "Lucien Bonaparte Maxwell," p. 3. Pregaldin, "Geneaology," incorrectly dates his death as September 4. The frequently reported story that Hugh died in a hunting accident is erroneous."

I think the date of Sep 14, 1833, above, is a reference to the date of the Sangamore Journal publication, and not to a death date. But, if the Sep 4 date is incorrect, then why did the author, Lawrence Murphy, report it that way in the text of his book?

In any case, regardless of what the exact date was, Hugh Maxwell died in 1833, not 1855. If he was "about 56," as his headstone indicates, then his birth year would have been 1776 or 1777.

Thank you for all your good work.
