Just a quick note to thank you again for all of the memorials you've created in Clark County, Indiana.

With best regards,

RE: Catherine Logan-Eastern Cemetery
It always makes me feel good when someone is linked or identified. I had forced myself to methodically go through those new Indiana records when they became available on Ancestry but had only done Dearborn County where most of my relatives are buried for 1899-1900. But, growing up in Decatur County, I decided (since they follow each other on the roll) that I would also do Decatur County because I have entered a fair number through research in my home county, too even though I knew I wouldn't find any relatives that early. Yes, it was nice to give her a name, wasn't it?

RE: Burnett James O'Hearn Jr.
Thanks for adding the picture of the gravestone to my memorial. I was over there years ago and couldn't find them.

Burnett James O'Hearn Jr.
Would you please add your picture of the stone to my memorial for Burnett James O'Hearn Jr. I created his memorial in 2009 thinking his name was William O'Hearn. I recently found out through the new Indiana birth records on Ancestry that his name was Burnett James O'Hearn Jr. His father was my grandmother's brother. Someone else has a memorial for him that was created after mine was done.
Thank you

Don't know if it is Q. My cousin set these up from a cemetery list. If it's incorrect please send a correction through the edit. Thanks,

Hi Gail,
That would be great if you want to transfer to me. Do you know how I would get the two duplicate memorials combined?

Thanks for you help,

I'm sorry to leave 3 messages, but just realized I had made a memorial too for William S Taylor, 157280196, so if we could combine the two memorials it would solve all the issues.

Thanks so much again,
Rita LeCrone

William S Taylor #30441013
Also Gail, forgot to tell you his birth year is incorrect on the memorial. He was born in 1871. The info from my great grandfather states so, plus the 1880 census has him as 9 years old.

William S Taylor #30441013
Hi Gail,
William S Taylor was my great uncle. His brother, my great grandfather, Ben F Taylor, told me about his brother William. The information you found on Ancestry is my tree/info. I've added all the family research Ben F Taylor did and information he passed along. I have memorials on here for William's family, father, brothers, etc if you'd like to link them.

As far as you thinking his parents were both alive and why was he in an orphanage? His mother was not alive at the time of William's death. She had died the previous summer, 1881. The father put all the children in the orphan home after their mother died.

If you could connect William to his family's memorials it would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Rita K LeCrone

RE: Henry Ricky/Rickey
Hi Gail:
You are right about the New Albany N.C. records containing many mistakes. While they have the correct spelling of his name (Ricky) and unit, the death date they give for him (May 6, 1862) is incorrect. It actually is January 12, 1862. There is a duplicate Find A Grave memorial for Henry Ricky, but with the surname incorrectly spelled Rickey.

I hope you find your Henry Ricky. Good luck!

Henry Ricky/Rickey
I also meant to mention that there is only one Henry Ricky/Rickey listed as being buried at New Albany N.C. And the grave number 1079 is the updated number from the original Section B layout. The May 6, 1862 death date listed on the memorial is just incorrect. I can't explain it.

RE: memorial 3286141
Hi Gail,
The Henry Ricky who is buried at New Albany National Cemetery is the Iowa soldier who served in Co. I, 13th Iowa Volunteers. In the Iowa state journal, "Roster and Record of Iowa Soldiers in the War of the Rebellion" (Pub. 1908), Ricky is listed as having died in New Albany, IN on Jan 12, 1862, and that he was buried in the New Albany N.C. in Section B, Grave 826 - exactly what is listed on the Find A Grave memorial.

Sorry he is not your Henry Ricky . . . I hope you find him.

RE: John D. Crooke
Thank you for your reply.

I looked up the Indiana Death Certificate - and the burial location is clearly Mitchell, Indiana in the city cemetery.

the 4 February 1905 date corresponds to numerous articles documenting the sad death of JAMES D. Crooke, the spouse is indeed my husband's great grandmother.

Perhaps it was though he'd be interred in Eastern Cemetery?

OR is it really another, different person?

This is James Dean Crooke
Find A Grave Memorial# 85281889

If you'd like to take a look and see what you think.

Thank you

Re: Garrett Heatherly
Gail, thank you for your plot # correction. I like the following on your profile. I've often thought the same:

Do not leave me a message if you have disabled your messages so that one can't reply. If you don't entertain a reply, then do not contact me.
