Aaron Paxton Memorial# 23447457
Are you related to this Aaron Paxton? I am asking because the birth date on the headstone is different then what you have entered in for the memorial. I was wondering if there is a reason for you having a different date then the store has. Thank you.

Cemetary Not Found
Hello, I am new to Find A Grave and I was looking forward to helping others find their ancestors. I cannot locate a Cemetery in my area called Beardshire Cemetery. I found a reference to possibly the cemetery be renamed (or AKA) to Willow View Cemetery located off of Neff Rd in Dayton, Ohio. This is much farther north that I can get to right now. You may want to contact them @ 937-277-2021 to see if they can give you any info. Sorry I cannot be of more help to you. Theresa Ryan

Mike, I am so excited to have found my great grandfather's grave. He died in Portland, so I didn't think about looking for it in Washington. Thanks to ancestry's hints, it has been found.

I appreciate your having added the photograph. Since every photographer holds a copyright for each photograph, I would like to ask for your permission to use that photograph in my family tree on ancestry. I will make a citation, giving the source of the photograph. If you would rather I not do that, then I can upload it to my tree on Family Tree Maker and mark it as private so it will not sync with my tree on ancestry.

Happy New Year,

anna gibson, old brookville cemetery
Hello, I was in Old Brookville Cemetery the other day; Anna Gibson's marker appears to be inscribed "Anna Gibson Died April 9, 1889 Aged 83 yrs 5 mo 4 d A Precious One from us has gone A voice we loved is stilled. A place is vacant in our home which never can be filled." Often the numerals in a picture of a marker aren't very legible. Hope this helps. mrs

Wilbur Fisk Clements, owner of the Agency telephone system, is a businessman notably prompt, energetic and reliable in all his dealings. His activities and interests have carried him into various sections of the country, and gradually he has worked his way upward, improving opportunities that others have passed heedlessly by and winning for himself a place among the substantial citizens of the county in which he now makes his home. He is a native of Blooming Grove, Franklin County, Indiana, born November 24, 1849, his parents being Richard and Elizabeth (Webb) Clements. He has almost a complete genealogical record, showing direct descent from one of the three brothers who came to America on the Mayflower. His grandfather also bore the name Richard Clements and was an exhorter in Indiana when it was a pioneer state, traveling for miles through the wilderness to a little settlement, where he would preach the gospel. Wilbur F. Clements traces his ancestry in the maternal line back to the period of the Revolutionary war. His father was a native of Maryland and his mother of Indiana. After residing for some years in the latter state following their marriage they came to Wapello county, where they settled upon a farm, here continuing to make their home until called to their final rest. They had a family of five children: Altis, now a resident of Red Oak, Iowa; Wilbur F.; Virginia, the wife of George W. Fair of Red Oak; and Howard and Mary F., both residents of California.

Wilbur F. Clements pursued his early education in the common schools and afterward attended a seminary. He was but fourteen years of age when he started out in life on his own account, and since then he has depended entirely upon his own resources. He first learned the carpenter's trade, which he followed for several years, becoming quite expert in that line. He has pronounced mechanical tendencies, which have been developed until his skill in that direction is marked. In 1878, he went to Colorado, attracted by the excitement over lead discoveries, and there he remained for two years. He then returned to Wapello County, where he was again connected with building interests until 1902, in which year he went to New Mexico. Having taken up the business of mechanical engineering, he was engaged in the construction of municipal waterworks and in setting up machinery of various kinds. He built some gold reduction mills and also was the builder of creamery plants in six different states. Following his return to Wapello County in 1904, he became identified with telephone interests and established the Agency exchange. He owns the entire line and in this connection gives excellent service to the public, at all times striving to improve the system, which is today recognized as an indispensable factor in the community. His possessions also include one hundred and sixty acres of land in Montana and town property in Agency, in addition to the telephone system.


On the 8th of October 1871, Mr. Clements was married in this county, to Miss Rebecca Fair, a native of Maryland and a daughter of John and Rebecca (Fisher) Fair, who were also natives of that state. They came to Iowa during the early development of Wapello County, however, and here settled upon a farm, which continued to be their home throughout their remaining days. In their family were nine children. To Mr. and Mrs. Clements have been born three children: Avonia K., now the wife of Rev. W.H. Perdew of Newton, Iowa; Melville F., who married Minnie Coover and is a civil engineer of Oregon; and Gladys M., the wife of Lorne Parks of Burns, Montana. The parents are members of the Methodist Episcopal church, and Mr. Clements gives his political allegiance to the republican party. He has held numerous township offices, has also been assessor and a member of the city council of Agency. The cause of education likewise finds in him a stalwart champion, and he has done effective work in its behalf while serving on the school board. While his business interests have taken him into other sections of the country, he has spent much of his life in Wapello County, where he has a wide acquaintance and an extensive circle of friends.

Thanks for posting the photo of Charles Dewey's grave site. He was my dad's cousin and I have recently started researching that branch of our family. I have also checked out your web site and was very happy to find so much information posted there. My grandmother's sister was Delsie Mae, mother of Charles Dewey.

Thanks again for sharing your information on your web site.
