RE: Elizabeth Titscombe Morse
So true...unfortunately. Even today, it seems that maiden names can get lost. When my precious Mama passed I insisted that her maiden name be part of her tombstone. Thankfully, Dad didn't have a problem with that.

William & Diana Wilson
Hi Melody! William & Diana were my 3rd great-grandparents. I'm descended from their son, Roscoe Elisha Wilson (Eli's younger brother). I just recently located the death certificate for Roscoe and from this I learned that William Wilson was born "near Watertown, New York" which is in Jefferson County. I also learned that Diana's maiden name was Woodward and confirmed that she, too, was born in New York state. I've consulted over the years with a Wilson cousin (a descendant of Eli), and this is the first new info we've found on William and Diana in ages. Just thought I'd pass it along to you! I'll be happy to send you a copy of Roscoe's death certificate if you'd like it for your records. Just drop me a note and I'll email it to you.

Best wishes!

Lavinia was born in 1842 and Minnie 1849.

I was born and raised in Middleboro where the family lived. There are hundreds of sources that support the fact they were sisters.

Minnie Warren Bump
Sorry but I have to disagree with your request. Minnie was Lavinia's sister born 8 years apart. Your suggestion based on a photo is incorrect. If you have additional support for your claim that she was Tom Thump's daughter, please provide it.

please provide a viable resource for changing the name since the marker does not reflect the name you would like in your edit

Your request for the change of initial from D to H. on this memorial:

Middle Name:
D. Middle Name:

Is on hold. I am currently working with the lady at the cemetery who has access to the records.

Do you have a source for your information on the family? This Charles D. Morse was gleaned from newspaper accounts and therefor won't be updated unless sourcing is included.

Additionally, there are 5 Charles Morse's listed in the cemetery… because some of the dates given are interment or re-interment dates… they possibly are not death dates at all.

Right now all I am sure of is that Charles Morse b. 1804 - d. 1885 was married to Luna b. 1806 - d. 1886. This matches genealogical research and headstone… the other 4 Charles's are being researched & looked into.

If you have information you'd like to add, please use the EDIT tab and click on the "Suggest any other correction or addition" link with your sourcing information…

Thank you for your patience while we sort all these Charles' out.

RE: Woodlawn
I dont get that at all either! seems silly that families pay money, and it is a public place. Sad. I will definitely try if I hit a warm day.

RE: Woodlawn
I will ask for the location it's no problem. I always try to ask requesters to call and try to get it because some offices don't like people coming in multiple times or with a whole list of names. Thanks!

Have linked him to his parents. Thank you for the information:)

Hello, you have requested photos at Woodlawn Cemetery in Forest Park, IL. I would be happy to try and look for your request but it can be quite difficult to find a grave without any location provided. Please call the cemetery and request the grave location. They can be reached by phone at (708) 442-8500. Once you have obtained a location please update the memorial in question with the plot information. Thank you.

RE: Susan Agnew Ackles
Hi Melody- I am just getting on Find A Grave for the first time in a long time and seeing your messages. Do we have unfinished business? I'm not certain I ever responded or took care of what you needed me to. Please let me know what that is and I'll take care of it!
Hopefully I already have and this is just a hello!

I went to the Ripley Cemetery today. I took a long hard look at Mr Harland's broken stone, on the left-bottom corner there may be the remains of the date "March". That's all.

Added by Jerry Owen on Oct 08, 2015 4:14 PM

RE: David Harlan
It's quite a ways to Ripley for me. Jerry Owen, who created the memorial, lives in the Ripley area. Maybe he can find something.

To the best of my knowledge, that stone was lying all by itself. Not many pedastals around. If I slide by that way again, I might do some more looking. Pretty large cemetery.

RE: David Randall
I will try and wander thru Lawn 25 next time I am there and see if I can locate a marker for him. Otherwise, his marker if he has one is likely under layers of needles and leaves. So, then yes that photo is of the general area that I believe him to be in.

Vernah Houts
I have fixed her first name according to your records. She's buried in section CS (which I believe is Ceder) Lot 1 Grave 63. I personally photographed all visible headstones in this section. This leads me to believe that either her headstone is under the sod or she doesn't have one.

I went and looked at the picture I had on my hard drive and double checked to make sure I was right or made a mistake. I was wrong so I do apologize and have changed it. Thanks you for pointing it out.

The stone that I took the picture of says 1908 on it and is why I have that for the date. I made a note at the bottom of the listing about the obit having one year and the stone having the other year. Until the stone is changed or someone submits a picture showing the numbers say the number you submitted I am sorry but the year will remain 1908.

Elias French
Thanks for updating his information for me. (And when I typed Herman instead of Hermon it was just a typo I accidentally made, and I pressed send right as I noticed it.) I am descended from Elias. Elias' death record is available from the state of New York since he died after 1881, when they started keeping records. If you're interested in a copy, here's the link for the information and form to fill out.

Apparently, he did know what he was doing because I still have the photos. I did add new photos horizonialy instead of vertically and I also sent in a correction of the spelling of Jamima last name. Please double check and make sure that I did it correctly. Thank you for being patient with me and my computer. Barb

Thank you for understanding. I took our computer in today to have Windows 7 put back on. I am not computer savvy either and I was really getting frustrated. My technician said I will probably lose the photos I had downloaded but at least I will be able to do my thing. Have a good day. Barb
