RE: Edward Fletcher - #89511258
Hi Darlene,

The information on Edward Fletcher came from, the family tree owned by Joanne Miller. The rest of the info checked out, so I thought that it was reasonable his name was William Edward, rather than just Edward. Not a big deal though.

The cemetery is:

Temple Beth Hatfiloh

If you still have trouble finding it you can transfer the memorial to me and I'll move it and transfer it right back to you.

You're not alone. Having four cemeteries look like one big cemetery has thrown a lot of people off. One member wandered around snapping photos in all four but created the memorials in Masonic. It took me weeks to get Edit to move them all to their correct cemetery.

Do not give up as am still researching for more info. I have the Oregon birth info. on both Rosa and Earl, article on their golden wedding anniv. party, as well as obit of daughter, Doris Hazel Duckett and about 10 members of her (siblings)family. I will try and get copy of marriage certif. as soon as library opens next Weds. I have a book at home with many marriages only up to 1915 so of no use on this. Will type & send copies of the obits to Craig and Kim to add to memorials when have time.
Will eventually take this file to C.C.F.History Society library when done for others to use in research.

RE: Conley Blankenship
I just looked the site. You may not want my advice, but if so: I would sift through for data I was sure about and remove any and all "lumps". There are more of that name buried in West Virginia and at least part of the excess data would probably belong to them. (I stopped when I saw the name went back to 1810 and on into new generations). Have a nice evening. Hilda

Hi Darlene,

I will look forward to seeing any new information on the Humphries. Samuel always stumped me when I was looking for things to add.

RE: Conley Blankenship
Just a quick note. Many of the name/with varied spellings)=as early as the 1810 census, 1820, 1830, 1840. Two at least in 1850 plus younger ones with the name, Two (at least)-in 1860, etc. Early one wife Martha, another (1849) wife Mary Justice, then the one we were looking at, 1852 wife Elizabeth Charles. hls

RE: William Saltzman/Stutzman
Thank you Darlene.I have been researching this man and his family for the last two months.I requested most of the links for his family and a few collateral lines also.I spent a few hours today reading more history of the area they were in.I found this interview (below)with Bercia Saltzman in 1925.

She doesn't say William is buried in a cemetery.If he was I would have expected her to say so,since it was a lengthy interview about her whole life.So I'm going to stay with what I have,the Saltzman name and where she said he is buried.Maybe their is another person with a similar name in Burnt Ranch cemetery.I have looked for that headstone photo,or a transcript of burials, but so far no luck.The rest of his family have headstones with the name very visible.

Thank you for your input !

Interview of Bercia Ward Saltzman by Fred Lockley, published in The Oregon Daily Journal, Portland, Oregon Friday, May 15, 1925.

a portion only

"I have had five children. Armine married William Byrd. She lives at Los Angeles. Addie married William Shaw. She lives at Dallas, in Polk county. Mary Alice married Elbert Fairley and has a place three miles east of Cascade Locks. Harry died and is buried next to his father on our place at Burnt Ranch. Jay, my baby, weights 203 pounds, and for the past six years has driven 100 to 150 miles a day suppressing joy riders. He is a state traffic officer. My husband died 33 years ago. I am 85 years old, but somehow I can't seem to realize that I am getting old."

RE: Date of Death - William Marion Griffin
Thanks much for verifying the dates. As you look at my history, please contact me if you see mistakes or have questions concerning my family tree.

Again, thanks for your prompt response and have a very happy New Year.

Date of Death - William Marion Griffin
I have noticed the the referenced date given in the Find A Grave is different from the news clips that were included in the Obituary section. I believe that the date at the top (Aug 13, 1901) should be April 13, 1901 as listed in the newspapers. Otherwise, you do a GREAT job on the work that you have done. You will find me as a coz descended from Albert Henry Brown and his 1st wife. Thanks for your work !!

I had an ancestor who was part owner of a gold mine in AZ. His two partners sent his belongings home to his family in ME saying they didn't know what happened to him. The family thought his partners had murdered him. We found him a census in Dawson, Alaska. He was around 50 when he made that trip and was not found in the census the following year. They called it a gold rush for a reason. People dropped everything and rushed to where ever they were going. Many died or were killed, too.

Memorial - Birth Year
Birth year corrected - I'd have caught when I added details. I appreciate feedback but honestly can live w/out sarcasm. Seems there are a few who monitor this cemetery just looking for problems....

Stella Booth
First, a big hug and a sincere thank-you for the kindness that you have shown to those that you have brought back to the hearts of us, who are searching, and sometimes finding lost family.

I am personally certain that Stella is my grandmother's half sister, Lydia Lewis Canfield Smith. Their father was John Wesley Lewis,his 1st wife died in South Dakota, he married Lydia Pennell, also in South Dakota, their daughter was Stella. The family moved from South Dakota to Mason County. John W. Lewis was killed in Mason County in 1916, Lydia married Milton Andrew Guynup, Stella was a witness. I find it is more than sad that Stella is not mentioned in either of her parents bio information, after I can confirm for certain that this Stella Booth is my aunt, I will see about adding her to both of her parents sites. In the meantime, I am continuing my search for any living grandchildren that Stella Booth has and a photo of her. Thank you again, I am a newbie, as of today to this great place. Sincerely, and God Bless, Kathy

RE: Help, please ....
Hi Darlene

Thank you for your kind sentiments.

St Margaret's Church, Wolston, Rugby. It has the only cemetery in Wolston, it's only a small village. It is on Find A Grave's list of cemeteries because l put it on. l've taken quite a few pics of headstones there. As soon as l download them onto my laptop l will check through them to see if your ancestors are amongst them.

Have a peaceful weekend.

Those 2 Cahoons are not duplicates. I added them because there were no names matching the names on their gravestones.

According to FindAGrave's help directory, this is how they are supposed to be listed - to match the tombstone:

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links.

I added possible alternate spelling Calhoun to the top of their bios, per FindAGrave directions.

RE: Casper & Elizabeth Hardy memorials
I've been sending you info for years on them and it doesn't always get updated. I still have the emails. Please transfer my grandparents' profiles to me so I may help take care of some of these for you, especially my loved ones. Thanks for handling so many profiles.

RE: Sarah Hall Powls
Yes, I have Rosa listed as unknown father. I haven't found evidence of any other marriage other than Levi in Jun 1872. Rosa's birth year 1867 means Sarah would have been 20, unmarried since Rosa took the name of her mother.

I'll keep looking for more information on Sarah's children.

Of course! I don't own the photo, the family shared it with me and you're fam, right? You can copy any of the photos from any of my memorials.

John Hager
I found a photo of john, take a look at his memorial page.

Additional info on Carrie:
Ed Martin was born in Wisconsin on Jan 22, 1866, died in Boise on Jul 9, 1954. Idaho death index and there are 3 city directories that show Ed and Carrie living in Boise, the first being 1948. A relative says they were married in 1947.

I hope this helps!

RE: John Hager/Carrie Martin
John and Carrie were married Sep 29, 1909 and divorced in 1915. They had 2 children. Both children were living with their grandmother Sarah Hall, Carrie's mother, in 1920. Carrie was remarried in 1919 to Fred Paulsen, I don't know why she wouldn't have had her children with her? Fred and Carrie had 1 child and he was living with a foster family at the age of 8, in 1930. Very strange.
