RE: Thomas Morrison, Sarah Humfreville
Jack, I gave you the wrong page number in George Hayes of Windsor. It is page 227. I accessed it online in about 2 minutes.

RE: Thomas Morrison, Sarah Humfreville
Thanks Jack, I'm not surprised to find out that I have a bad date on David Ezekiel Humfreville's death. I'll try to access your info.

Thomas Morrison, Sarah Humfreville
Greetings Jack, Thomas Morrison is my third great grandfather. I have much on him. Sarah Humfreville Morrison - almost nothing.

The Humfreville line is one of my blanks. I know that Sarah Hayes Humfreville is President Rutherford Birchard Hayes' first cousin, one time removed.

She died in an Asiatic Cholerah epidemic with 6 other family members.

Her husband issued "shin plasters" (unsecured loan). To make good on his debt he took a flat boat from downtown Dayton, Ohio to New Orleans, selling provisions along the way (lard, whiskey, skins, grain, etc.). Some of his letters to his wife, Sarah, survive.

I have Sarah's father as David Ezekiel Humfreville, mother, Elizabeth Hayes. It appears that Sarah's father, David E. Humfreville lived to be 110 years old. Does that square with your records ? I have nothing further on the Humfrevilles. Please share if you have more - my e mail is victoryfirst504 at g mail dot com.

RE: William Davis
Actually, I have no proof. I will look at it again and if I find nothing, I will probably remove the link.

Hi Jack
Hope all is well with you.
I asked the creator of 66966663 to delete his memorial. Your memorial 57857265 was posted 1st.
The Humphreville family is hard to follow because of the different ways the name is spelled.
Hope you had a good day.

Please Update your edit for the Burkett's. Thank You!!

Anne Whitmore Allen
Thank you for linking her to her father. I have notified findagrave administrators that the incorrect Ann Allen Hurlburt needs to be unlinked from this family.
Cheers~ Shirleen

Hello Mr. Davis: I just sent an edit to you to link your Ann Whitmore Allen to my memorial for John Whitmore as a daughter - and then I saw that Findagrave had attached an Ann Whitmore Allen Hurlburt to him - do you know which is correct? The other memorial is # 80594857.
Thank you ~ Shirleen [history4sure]

Clara Hooper
Martha Moss Burkett Cole
Jack, Since you are related to Martha, do you have any information on her daughter, Polly? Polly is my 2nd great grandmother, the first wife of William Handy (born in Indiana in 1837 and died in Molina, Kansas in 1903). Polly is buried in Round Mound Cemetery like Martha , but not listed as so. My father saw her badly damaged tombstone in the 1970s. I am related to this tree through the Handy branch. I know nothing about William before 1860 when he was living and working for the Hadley Family in Iowa. This is where I believe he married Polly but I cannot find proof. Any information you have or suggestions on how to find more, I would really appreciate. I look forward to hearing from you when you can find the time.

Thank you,
Clara Handy Hooper

Gary Moore
Clanton and Catron
Hi Jack,

Curious to know more of your line with Clanton and possible connection to Catron line. Rachel Moore was my 5th great aunt and her brother Joel was my 4th great grandfather. I also have many Catron/Ketterings in my tree. The Catron's ended up in Clinton County In from Greene County Tenn.

Send me message if you would like to share.

Clark L Brant
Dear Jack,

I notice you are researching Brant surname and have posted one in the Ainsworth Cemetery.

According to "Headstones Provided for Deceased Union Civil War Veterans" a Clark L. Brant who served in the 21 Ind Batty, and who died Feb 16, 1890 is buried in the Ainsworth Cemetery. I thought you might be interested in this information. He is either not listed at Find A Grave, or is listed with the wrong death date. Catherine Renschler

Charles Mosbarger born November 29, 1884 in York County, Nebraska and died in KC on February 2, 1942. Bill.

RE: Edith V. DeFrance Mosbarger
Edith married James Anderson Mosbarger #95658132 and her sister Ione married Charles Mosbarger. He was cremated so no find-a-grave. Both died in Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri and both death certificates are on-line along with Edith's. Ione died in Shawnee Mission, Johnson County, Kansas. Bill.

Edith V. DeFrance Mosbarger
Hi Jack - Have information on the parents of Edith V. Defrance Mosbarger #95658133 if you would like to have it. Records indicate she was the second youngest of thirteen children. Wondering if you had any info on her sister who also married a Mosbarger? Bill.

RE: ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
Thank you for the name. We will add it to our list to have a flag placed on the grave for Memorial Day. Because many who served have no indication of their service on their grave site, we depend on word of mouth to identify those. Please feel free to share the information about our project sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge 326.

RE: Clarence, Jack, and Kenneth Chaney

Nope! I've never heard from them. I suspect they are not active on Find-a-Grave anymore. I am not sure if there is anything we can do about it. It would be nice if there was.

Good luck!
