I just wanted to let you know, that I can only go by what SusAnn Fuller left with me, and I noticed her bio for Thomas Hudson has a list of children. So I went back and deleted the spouses and children that I could from his memorial till we can get it straighten our. You new info, showed me Id better search a little stronger about that fammily branch, since Ancestry is going to make trees out of our posts :(

Info RE: John W. Crawford
Hello, I see you manage the memorial for John W. Crawford (#13724968). There are no dates on his memorial, and also no photo of the grave. I am assuming this memorial was entered from a cemetery record. Could you provide any additional information from this record? I am looking for John Crawford, first husband of Elizabeth Snapp and father of Sarah Ann Crawford Park. We believe he died about 1834. Any information you could provide would be very appreciated. Thank you!

Ferrington / Freeman
Thank you very much for the information on Warren E. Ferrington. It makes it very clear why Gerald Arthur Freeman and Alfred L. Freeman operated the Northwest Rug Manufacturing Company in Portland, Oregon in 1905. There is a Daisy E. Freeman and a Daisy E. Ferrington listed in the small city of Portland. I have not concluded that they are the same person, but I would not be surprised.

Your mention of Alfred moving on to California helps a lot with the fact that Gerald and Daisy started a Washington apple orchard in 1911!

Thank you very much for the hints!

Letting you know this cemetery is actually in Jefferson County's side of Walnut Hill, IL. The north side of Walnut Hill Rd. is in Marion County, and the south side of Walnut Hill Rd is in Jefferson County, IL (that's the dividing line between the two counties). Someone very rudley pointed this out to me several years ago and now I see others thought it was in Marion County, also. If you go to Little Grove Cemetery Jefferson County, IL you will find many more burials listed there in case your are searching for anyone else. Enjoy your searching.

RE: Key family
My goodness Richard. I stand corrected and am so sorry. You have so much information it is unreal. I do wish I had even close to that much information on my ggg grandmother Nancy Key b: about 1785 that married Samuel Huston in Montgomery Co, Ohio. I am not able to find who her parents were but always thought she is a daughter of William and Rachel Hansbrough-Key. But..will probably never know.
You are certainly correct in that you had information that they were born in Fayette Co.

Thank you so much for your information and I will change mine.

Thanks for writing,
Virgie (beckyh)

He was my uncle, my father's sister was Katherine McVey. I grew up in Galesburg and used to visit him in Harvey as a child. The only connection left is his daughter, Kathy (Reynolds) in Vienna, Va.
Thanks for the photos :)

Adeline Reed at Monmouth Cem.
Hi. I made memorials for Adeline's parents today based on P.B. Reed's obituary from the Warren Co. Gen. Soc. book, Obits & Tidbits, Vol. II (1850 - 1920). There's no date mentioned for when his obituary was in the newspaper, but it was between 1902 and 1906. If you would like to manage these memorials, let me know - maybe you can figure out the name of their tenth child! Also, Adeline and Emeline were twins.

RE: John Henderson at Camp Nelson Nat. Cem.
You're welcome. Have you tried searching here?
You have to go through a lot of John Henderson's but it lists a lot of information for each. You have a lot of information on him so I'm guessing you know a lot about the Civil War but I'm just going to put this out there.
Whether he's Confederate or Union makes a difference. They didn't allow burial of Confederate Soldiers in National Cemeteries until 1906. Most Confederate dead were left on the battlefield or buried (re-buried in some cases)in local cemeteries or soldier lots. Many National Cemeteries have "Confederate lots" set aside for those soldiers where they are all buried in one section together. If you believe you've located him on the locator and if he's Confederate call to see if they have a Confederate lot. Camp Nelson National does not to my knowledge. Also
Union stones have a curved top and Confederate are pointed.
I have several Union soldiers in my family, they are in National Cemeteries. The one Confederate was buried in the cemetery on the family farm in Tenn.
If John he died during the war he'd have been buried where he was unless the family had enough money to have his body returned. Many are buried five or more states away from where they lived. One of mine lived in TN, mustered in in VA fought in KY, TN, MS, and IL. They moved a lot and many died from injuries and illness moving from one area to another. You should be able to find out what battles he was in by researching the unit. Hope that wasn't information overload. Good Luck.

John Henderson 1863
Hi, I've gotten you're photo request. I can't find him under any National Cemetery via the VA National grave site search, which means he won't be in Camp Nelson's onsite locator. Being a veteran I find the VA's system sketchy at best. I always go out and check the plot, which is often an unmarked. I then walk the the entire section just to be sure. The information you have is usually what on the stone if not more. I know the importance the photo makes. Give me a couple of days, we're in a patch of wet(ter) weather in KY right now, it's called winter :) Michelle

Arthur Christy Davis
Arthur played for John Phillip Sousa. In fact the photo on his findagrave site is owned my me and he is in California in his Sousa uniform. It is also the time (if you remember Music Man 76 trombones) that all the bands came together and played. I have this information on a postcard.

Hi Richard,

I used to be a groundskeeper at Weedsport Rural Cemetery during my college years.

I've lived here for over 50 years, and remember
Velma. She used to be a postal clerk!

Small world, isn't it?

Glad to help out with your memorials.
Good luck with your genealogical endeavors!

Would you like some photos of the graves?
Let me know.

Forgus Graham
Dear Richard,

Wow, thank you for the background on Hickory Point cemetery and your thoughts regarding Forgus Graham. I had hoped that finding him (an uncle), would lead to finding his mother, my 4th gr grandmother, Mary Polly Ryan Graham. It seems this is not likely to happen and she is lost to time (as is her husband, John Graham).

If you could add to his memorial bio some information I'd be grateful. I'll use the edit tab on the Forgus Graham memorial page.

Minnesota has this same law. I work with a small local cemetery that was once too, overgrown and forgotten. Many hands before mine cleaned headstones, pulled brush, trimmed overgrown lilacs and dowsed for graves. We think we have all of the sites, but we have not been able to identify the majority of them. So sad when records are lost and family has moved on.

I appreciate your efforts and all of the information you have given me. I can only imagine the frustration when your photos were unreadable. I had a similar experience to yours, only mine was with the white balance being played with, unknown to me. All my photos were readable, but a terrible color! The saddest was part of this was all of the beautiful white veterans markers I photographed were an awful blue hue to them, I couldn't use a single one. Frustrating.

Do you want me to transfer these three to you to you? I'm not related. I added links and corrected the date for John, which I had entered incorrectly. Thanks for checking. You could then add the notes you feel are appropriate.
