Gershom name change
Memorial #22775953, Gershom Elsea is an interpretation error from a Census 1860OH,Putnam,Union Twp. I sent the name change because the name should have been transcripted as "G Washington".

The mother & father links are correct.

I also question the death date. What is the source?

Sarah England Fraikes
There is a possibility that her husband's last name was Traikes/Trakes. She did have a son John Patrick who died in Harrison, Kossuth, Iowa in 1947.

I see where you left a flower on my Grandma Melissa's memorial and I wondered if we are related or did you know any of the Lacefields?

Token you left for Traci Fields
Thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!

This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.

Berry Family
Hi my maternal family has Berry and I am afraid that I am unable to go back very far. There doesn't seem to be too much of a record of them. John Hare Berry and Rachel Adams arrived in Roseville, Ca abt 1845. It was called Junction at the time. They were both from PA and were married in Ohio. Children Margaret, Parker, Thomas, Rachel, John and Daniel. That's all I have. No other records or pictures. Could we be part of the same tree?

Curtis Logsdon
I am working on the Logsdon family and found your Memorial 29456562 for Curtis Logsdon son of Henry Logsdon and Lillie Dennis Logsdon I also found a Memorial added by Crow 20 Sep 2011, Memorial 76850025 for Joseph Harrison Logsdon. The children show they were born to the same parents on the same day 31 Jul 1922 and died a day apart. Curtis died on the 20 Sep 1922 and Joseph on the 19 Sep 1922. I have found birth and death records for Joseph in the KY Birth Records and Ky Death Records, but I have not found any for Curtis. Do you know if they are twins and if they are buried in the same area of the cemetery? Thanks for your help and all the work you do.

RE: Ulery Family
Have you read the info on the Ulery's in the Pictorial and Biographical Memoirs of Elkhart County Indiana. There is a lot of info and it may lead you to the person you are looking for. When and where was Michael born? I will keep the info in mind and let you know if I find anything while I'm researching.

Ulery Family
I saw that you are researching the Ulery family. My Ulery group came from PA to Elkhart County Indiana to Marshall County Iowa to Adams County Nebraska. I'm trying to determine if the Ulery family in Marshall County, Iowa are somehow related. My great great grandmother was Lydia Ulery Liveringhouse. Does any to this tie in with your Ulery family.

Would you mind transfering maintenance of this memorial to me? This was my GG Grandfather. I have one two-sided letter in my possession that he wrote while a POW during the War. If I can get around to scanning it, I would like to post it on this page someday.

I checked and I thinkd the Shelton cemetery with the two memorials does need to be deleted becaus the other Shelton cemetery has over 200 Memorials in it. Thank Vicki

I have "Priest" ancestors born in Virginia. Have you found any from there? Right now I am trying to find something on William Priest, born in Virginia in about 1809. He was married to Sarah Holtzclaw Payne in Fauquier Co., Virginia. Thanks for your time. Kay

RE: the 2 Anderson cemeteries near Palmer, Illinois
Thank you very much. I didn't catch this until I searched for all of the cemeteries in Christian County. When I can block some time, I will try to take this on.

the 2 Anderson cemeteries near Palmer, Illinois
It is very confusing, but these 2 cemeteries should not be combined; they are 2 separate cemeteries - one on the east side of Palmer, Illinois called just plain Anderson, and one on the west side of Palmer just north of Morrisonville called Traylor or Thomas Anderson. I originally made the same mistake, trying to go to the Anderson cemetery that is east of Palmer to try to find my Kline relatives, but was told at the Christian County Genealogical Society that there are 2 cemeteries that include the Anderson name, the one on the east side of Palmer that is just named Anderson, and the one on the west side of Palmer that is Traylor Anderson, but the sign says just Thomas Anderson. Fortunately, our relatives on in Traylor Anderson because that cemetery is very well kept and easy to get to. The plain Anderson cemetery is in a cow pasture, more difficult to find and get to, and was completely overgrown when I was there in a July. I hope that helps.

Deborah Jane Kline
the correct cemetery for the Priests
Hello. I believe you have your memorials in the wrong cemetery. I realize that the cemetery where you took these photos has a sign that just says the Anderson Cemetery but according to the Christian County Genealogical Society, it is actually the Traylor Anderson Cemetery, and the Anderson Cemetery is on the opposite of Palmer, Illinois from the Traylor Anderson one. According to the Christian County Cemetery Inscription Book, Vol. I, these people are in the Traylor Anderson Cemtery. I have been to both, and the plain Anderson one is in a cow pasture, difficult to get to, and overgrown. Please check out the signs that have been posted for each of these cemeteries and see if the Traylor Anderson one doesn't match where you took these photos. Thank you for your time and consideration.
