Hi Wilma

Marie Zeman Semrad
Hi Wilma,

I am Becky Schovanec, daughter of Bea and Leonard Schovanec, great granddaughter to Marie Zeman Semrad. Lillian Handley's children would be my second cousins. Not sure if you are related through marriage or birth, but in case that helps make the connection for you, I thought I would include it.

Last year, during some extensive research in the Prague and Kutna Hora Archives (Czech Republic), I located a copy of Marie's birth and baptism records. The date recorded there was 7 Nov 1867.

I have many other records on the Semrad side -- not sure if you are interested in anything, but if you are please let me know!

RE:Henry Dodge Hall
Dear Wilma,
In all of my research of Reason and Martha, I never came across a child born to them named Henry Dodge Hall, but am fascinated by this new information. He would have been Bureau Co., Ill., right & eldest child ? I can be more forgiving if this is a son of Reason & Martha Hall's rather than a wife of Lark's. Thank you so much. With All Sincerity, Kathie L.Webb Blair, Portland, OR

Sarah Mcgraffin
Wilma, If you are related you might want to contact the cemetery to get this corrected. Sarah is listed in all their records as Sarah McGriffin. Also she does not have any marker. I will be placing a picture to reference where is is resting at. CRob

I updated her memorial but I also transferred her to you. Please note in the near future I will no longer do corrections and transfer requests off of messages on my Find A Grave bio page, instead please use the Edit button in the upper right corner of the memorials and submit that way (if you want a copy of the addition/correction/transfer request please click the check box to send yourself a copy of the request). The site has gotten too big apparently and the messages pages are flaky to load, sometimes I have to reload the page several times to get it to come up and since the volume is such that I now have to access several pages to read all the recent messages it is no longer a reliable means of requesting transfers or changes.

RE: Goldsmith Headstone
Thanks for the permission. I want to use the headstone pictue of James Alfonso and Eunice Maria Goldsmith. My wife's Mother (my Mother-in-law)was a Sealock. She is tied to Goldsmith through a Sprague.

Bob Mahood
Lottie Stevens
My name is Bob Mahood. Charlotte "Lottie" Stevens was a sister of her great grandfather, Henry Stephens (some of the family spelled it with the "v" and some with the "ph").

I noticed Lottie and her husband John B. Handley were at different cemeteries. I could not make out anything on the left side of John's stone. Lottie's was the type normally used by a family stone.

Thank you for posting the stone. Any help you can provide with my confusion would be appreciated.

Parks Memorial Markers
Wilma, thank you for posting the photos of the Parks markers, even though the markers are placed in another spot. You will have to fill me in on that story! I belong to the DAR but not through Hugh Parks so will have to see if I can prove him on my line. Thanks again! Audrey

RE: Memorial for Edey Welch
wich cemetery are you referring to? Upper Corners? The town is still cutting down trees and discovering headstones. I plan a trip to marion later today if things work out I can walk in the woods and look. No guarantees thoug. Can you give me some other names that might also be there.

Thank you kindly for taking the photos of the Bushongs in the Paperville cemtery. My husband and I appreciate it very much. It will give a sense of of connection a little more to the family.

I appreciate you doing this.

St. Joseph Cem
I have a feeling that the other one - James - is also related. He is of an age to be a son. About 4-5 years ago there were listings from the cemeteries and instead of constantly going back and forth on the internet I just printed them off, which was real handy for me and now those are not available. I don't know what happened to them. I think they were scooped up by It just made it more expensive to do genealogy research. I live in the boonies and it is 45 miles to the closest LDS center and it is not open at times I am usually in town. If I come across anything to connect these I will let you know.M

If you find any relation to the other two let me know and will gladly transfer them also.
