RE: Wm. Bright
That's odd as Ron is usually pretty thorough about things like that. I will contact him & see what's up with that. I have walked Mississinewa more than once just for the Brights. There are only 2 Williams.....actually 3, but one just had Jasper, his middle name put on his stone instead of William Jasper. Thanks for deleting that memorial as I know how confusing all the Brights can be without adding ones that aren't even there! lol

Wm. Bright
You should check your records. There is NO Wm. Bright in that cemetery being born in 1869 & dying in 1907. If you are going by the book published by Bob McPhearson, it is an error. That is Wm. Bright, husband of Eliza 1807-1869. Her lot number is 3097 & his is 3096. They are my gr-gr-grandparents. So, it actually would be quite nice if you would delete that memorial as it is confusing to those who are trying to figure out the Brights in that cemetery.

Velva Hanaway
Are you related to Velva Hanaway? He was my mother's cousin through Carrie E Hanaway Sparks. If you have the Hanaway genealogy booklet that he wrote, I am on page three of the listings. My mother was Hilda Sparks. I would like to hear from you;you had some Eliza Ann Bunnel Hanaway information that I do not have.

This tombstone is difficult for me to read. Does it say that she is the daughter of Wm. Anderson?

Added by Susan on Jul 09, 2014 1:15 PM

Susan Anderson
Do you know if this might be Susan Turner Anderson, the daughter of William and Amanda Turner? The age is right and the tombstone indicates that this woman was the wife of Wm. Anderson which would be the case. Susan Turner Anderson was buried in Somerset, Wabash, Indiana. She and her husband had six children: Mary, Angeline, John R., William, Perry and Eldora. The death date that I had was 3 August 1857 which is a year earlier, but my date could be wrong.

James Abbott 1776& James Abbott 1813

Do you know any connection between the Two James Abbott's 1776 Find A Grave#32555382 and James Abbott 1813
Find A Grave#32555369 I noticed there is a break in the dates
of the children from 1810 to 1815 for the first James, and the second James would fit in there.

Thank You

Thanks, I'll take a look at that source. It's not my direct line, a second wife to my 5th g grandfather :) Just tying up loose ends :)

You have listed as her mother Rebecca Jenkins. I have been looking all over for Rebecca :) I'm wondering what your source is for this, just looking for some clues.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

He is buried in the Wabash County Poor Farm Cemetery. Have you ever been there? Are their any tombstone on the graves?

Thanks for your help

Please check you records about this person. You have her listed as both a wife and daughter of Thomas Webb. Martha Bennet was his wife and Mary was his daughter.

RE: Lora Black
I don't understand why you rejected this info.
Lora was my husband's ggrandmother. She was
a Herrell a lot longer than a Black. She has
three children that are "Herrell's". People
remember her as Lora Herrell not Lora Black.
I have had no problem with other webs sites.
I would appreciate you correcting it.
Thank you....

RE: memorial created
not hardly new at Find A Grave all my postings are family and the only Duplicates are when someone has posted garbage or not even bothered to read their own markers. Too many are out for numbers over correctness. Thanks for your note.

RE: House photo
Definitely enjoyed it!! Since you've obviously worked in the Friends cemetery, would you happen to be friends with anyone who has the records for that cemetery? I've tried to find another great aunt & uncle, Thurston & Lulu (Pearson) Halderman. Their obits say they're there. I've seen records saying she was a member for the Friends Church, but have never found their graves. She died in 1928 & he in 1944, so it shouldn't be one of the older unreadable stones. I've tried to contact the sexton & they never return my phone calls. I know Uncle Thurston wasn't rich, but I can't imagine they didn't have a stone. I don't have anyone left in the family that would remember where in the cemetery they were buried. I never thought about making a memorial for them & using their obits instead of a photo of their stone. What do you think??

House photo
Wow...never would have thought of putting a pic of where the deceased lived on here as you did with Minor Bickel memorial# 32692018. May I ask what prompted you to do that? Minor is my great uncle who passed before I had the chance to know him. I guess I never had reason to give much thought to where they lived. When I saw the pic, I recognized the house immediately. See it every time we stop at the post office!
