RE: william knight younts
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question about William Yonts. In this area (Muhlenberg County, KY) many of the stones for this family are spelled Yonts. However, it is said that my many-times great grandmother insisted it must be spelled with a "Z." I just thought the middle name of Knight might indicate that he was named for someone in his family by that name. I'll keep it in mind when next I work on the line. I appreciate your response and also all the contributions you make to Find a Grave memorials. Oh, yes, one more thing. Several years ago Brenda Collier Doss, who has made many contributions to genealogical research locally, stated to me that she had found a small stone in Nelson Creek Cemetery for Wlliam. To my knowledge she has never documented it but it does make sense that he and his wife would have been buried together. I have an inventory of his estate by son William (and wife Katharine) which confirms somewhat his date of death. I have also worked on the Heltsley line. Brenda C. Doss was a Heltsley descendant. Again, thanks.

William Knight Younts
Re William Knight Younts #133957459 and wife Mary Spraker #116471037. These two people are also my fifth great grandparents also. And I'm 85 years old! I descend from their son Rudolph. Am interested in knowing to which of their nine children you belong. Also would be interested in the source of William's middle name "Knight." This is new to me and I've worked on the Yontz (the spelling my ggg Betsy (Yontz) Smith preferred) many years. Appreciate your response. Thanks. ....Dorann O'Neal Lam, native of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.

Ron, Sorry that I am unable to help you concerning Find A Grave inactive contributors. The Humphreys are distance cousins by marriage of mine to a daughter of Doug & Emma Floyd (1st cousin of my grandmother). Their daughter, Myrtle Floyd first married a Cross and then married a Humphrey. Hope that helps. Sharon

Sorry, but I only listed them on findagrave. Don't know too much about most of them.
Again, so

RE: FAG NUMBER 62655774
I walked the entire cemetery in 2010. I verified the Benton County Cemetery Listing Book and took photos of all stones in the cemetery. There is no stone for Jackson Lyndell Sarrett. I have put a note on the memorial indicating the stone may be wrong or he may have been called by another name.

Capt Moore's photo
You posted a photo of Capt Sam Moore on a memorial for the USS Quincy # 40671814. Please copy this photo to Capt Moore's memorial-49268001.

I think it is very odd to have a memorial to the ship.

Rev William Foster Rutherford
I saw your memorials on William and Sadie Rutherford in the Mt Hope Cemetery at Anson.
Since you had no death date on William, I decided to do some research. Her death record does list Mt Hope Cemetery; however, I found his death certificate in Hidalgo Co., Tx on 12-20-1956.
They are both buried in the Meridian Cemetery in Bosque Co Texas with a double head stone.

RE: Rebecca & Oliver Herman MOOREoore

Your are quite welcome. It takes all of us working together to make Find A Grave a better place. I'm glad I was able to help you out. I have uploaded a headstone photo to both memorials.

Rebecca & Oliver Herman Moore

The burial location for both of these individuals is incorrect. They are both buried in Block 13 Lot 7 of Cleburne Memorial Cemetery. I have a headstone photo taken there that confirms burial. Secondly Rosehill did not even exist until late 1939 or early 1940. So there's no way they could have been buried there. I believe you and I have covered this ground before when you requested a headstone photo for both memorials. I now know why their names do not appear in the transcripts for Rosehill. It's because they are NOT buried there. Let me know when you correct the burial location for both memorials and I will be happy to upload the headstone photo I have.

Thanks for your hard work but I would like to suggest a correction. I believe the marriage date posted is actually Thomas Snipes date of death. He's my 1st cousin 3 times removed. They were actually married 26 Sep 1897.

My source is "Texas, Marriages, 1837-1973," index, FamilySearch ( : accessed 18 Feb 2013), T. W. Snipes and Ella Holliday, 26 Sep 1897.

Catherine Dickison Humphreys
You have Catherine Dickison Humphreys being born born in 1740 and marrying John Humpreys in 1750 when she would have been 9 to 10 years old depending on how the birthday fell? This is one of many things in my line from Isabella Leech and Chichester that I find suspect. Also the 2 volume work done on the Humpreys doesn't mention anyone that is posted here in this line. IS there some other reference material that is being used? Where is this info coming from? I see this stuff on ancestry all of the time, dates not jiving, people getting married after they are dead, having kids before they are born, etc. I am not saying that you are doing this, I am just curious what record you have that shows these two got married when she was around 10 years of age? Thanks Owen.

Hi Ron, I took some pictures of Mary W Cooks grave for you a while back. They have done some work in the cemetery. I have taken some more pictures of her grave. They have put her stone back together. I was wondering if you would like them.

I don't know if she related to my Thornton's.
While researching my Thornton's family members if I found a death certif on another Thornton I attached the death certif.

My Thornton's are related to Stonecipher, Christopher, McPherson family. If I do find out she is related, I will let you know.

I don't know if she related to my Thornton's. I do have 69 Thornton's in the family. As I was researching my Thornton's I was adding death certif of other Thornton's. My Thornton's are related to Stonecipher, Christophers, McPhersons family of Texas and California.

RE: Ruth Dunham
I recently ran onto a Findagrave contributor that told people not place death certificates on his memorials, which seemed quite unusual. After all, how could he stop them, and under what grounds? As far as I am concerned, if it is a legal document connected to that person, I think it is part of their story, and death certificates usually contain several types of important information. Yes, I certainly would post a death certificate for Ruth Dunham.

RE: Ruth Dunham
Hello Ron,
I've just been sent a Topeka Daily Capital newspaper article, dated Nov. 27, 1926, which states that Ruth Dunham committed suicide by taking strychnine poison. I have added this article to her Findagrave page. Looks like I need to get the detailed newpaper obit from the Wichita paper just to get a more accurate report of their article. A copy of her death certificate would be very interesting. I'm certainly not any expert on her or her death, but it appears (to me) that suicide will be the official cause of death.

Brent Boone
John Boon Family
Hi Ron. I'll try to keep this short. Its been quite a few years since I actually looked at my genealogy information. I believe I had received a lot of information from John Daniel Boone probably 10 years ago. I can trace my line back to John and Elizabeth Alford. To try and solve the mystery, I had submitted my dna to the Boone dna project. I did not end up having the same dna as those who can trace themselves back to Daniel Boone. Since the test is for male dna, this shows that John Boons father could not have been a brother of Daniel. After finding that out, my view changed to maybe John was the illegitimate child of a female Boone and then was raised as a Boone. I guess we'll never know.

Hi Ron , I have them linked now. I should have done it sooner. Take care, Daniel
