Grave of Earl Vincent Ivory Jr.
Dear Rose: I was looking over the information you have on my parents graves and it's all accurate except for one little bit. Yes, their postal address was Fostoria but, they lived in Lapeer County not Tuscola. Yeah,... I know,... not trying to be petty, just accurate. Also to make things even more complicated, they had a Columbiaville phone and us kids went to school in North Branch though we could have just as easily gone Lakeville. We just lived in lived a little weird spot of the county. Thanks for all you do.

Regards, Bill Ivory

Working On Forest Lawn In Omaha

I ran across an article in the Omaha Daily Bee dated August 14th, 1913 that was about the three sons of Lillian Burkland who died in a fire (Find A Grave Memorial# 123991886).

The three sons ages 3 months, 2 years, and 6 years were heartlessly advertised in the newspaper as up for fostering or adoption.

Even though two aunts and their father were seeking custody of the boys a Judge Crawford chose to give legal guardianship to a Miss Esther Johnson who promptly chose to advertise the children in the newspaper in their "best interest".

Here is a link to the Omaha Daily Bee story as found in the Library of Congress Archives:

I didn't want to copy and post the photo of the article in case there was some type of copyright issue.

I saw that you had given Lillian two sons and I wondered what happened to the third.

Cora Ford
Hi, My name is Donna Stefani. I see that you hold several memorials of her family members, & have the same last name as Cora, the woman I'm trying to locate living relatives for in reference to her unclaimed ashes. Are you related? I have recently updated a memorial on Here’s the URL:

The memorial provides a death certificate if available, a short biography and information about the location of the ashes. The cremains are being held at the Oregon State Hospital and can still be claimed by a relative - no matter how distant. I have an interest in those who died at an Oregon institution and whose cremains have not yet been taken by the family. My hope is to let relatives know where the cremains are now in case they would like to claim them. The link to the state department in charge of the cremains is

On YouTube there is a trailer for a documentary video that explains the situation with the ashes:

Please let me know if you have an questions or would like help claiming the cremains.

This is my father in law, and you should know that his parents were William Marion Ford and Dollie Wilson; they are all buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Cass County, Missouri. It is interesting to see a Stillwell mentioned, since his wife Naomi had Stillwell grandparents - but in Missouri by way of KY. I wonder if you are related although I don't see evidence, and would be pleased to exchange info.

RE: Dovie and Louanna Walker
Hello again. I couldn't find the article on the AJC archives which is surprising since it is a Celestine Sibley article. But calculating from Louanna's admission that she is 73, the article is from 1955. Isn't that great?

Dovie and Louanna Walker
Hello. The max photo upload is five. I have an article I would like to post or send in case anyone in interested. It is written by Celestine Sibley about the Sister's lives as wool weavers.

Wilcox Walnut Hill
Thought you might like to know, I received info from another Find A Grave volunteer on George W. Wilcox. I added what he provided. Also, I noted there were additional Wilcox graves in Walnut Hill, Cedar Lawn and Ridgewood (all 3 are Walnut Hill cemeteries and co-located) so I added 14 more Wilcox memorials. I do not know the family and will transfer any you want to manage.

Yes, I would be glad to take over her memorial, thanks!

Do you have any idea who paid for the beautiful stone for Rachel? I am a gr. gr. grandau. and am searching for other DENNIS family members. Her maiden name was HUNGATE, but I don't think any of her people made it down to Missouri.
I live in Kansas City and would be happy to come down to meet any long lost relatives.

Rose, thank you for your hard work in listing these graves at Evergreen. Because of you, I have been able to add so much missing family information. I sent an edit to you about Rose Patterson linking her to her parents and giving full birth and death dates. I just wanted to thank you again for your help. Robin Knowles Miner

P.S. Rose would be my 2nd cousin, 1 time removed.
Her father was my 1st cousin, 2 times removed.

We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one entombed there or no of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

This is just a spontaneous note to say thank-you for all your hard work.
It has been close to 8,9 years or so (maybe more?) that we communicated via e-mail as I found all the wonderful Ford Gilliland info...and I shared all I had being a desc. of Hester Ford (6x grandmother) with you. Don't know if it rings a bell..anyway you've covered lots of miles and info since then.

* "me" being (Smith) maiden name.

I've found time in my life in recent to get back to this hobby and find your name on so many things I am accessing. My goodness THANK YOU! The work you've done,.wow. I must have come across info you've contributed to, a dozen times today!
