David Irwin
I see that you are maintaining the David Irwin site and have a question. I found this ancestor living in Byron Center, Michigan in 1900. Most records indicate he was born in 1811 (census records). Find-A-Grave shows him being born in 1799. Do you have documentation of this birth date? Was it only derived from the newspaper article attached? Do you have documentation that he died in California? It's hard to grasp that he left Byron Center between 1900 and 1901 to go to California when he was somewhere between 89 and 101 years old. Thank you for any information you might have.

That's awesome. I also include Ossinger, Cossaboom if they married into the Outhouse family.

Oh you have NO idea how many cousins you have. Our historian has compiled a genealogy that includes 30,000 names. I've only got a tad over 10,000 of those myself. Enjoy the newsletter!

We just came out with the latest newsletter. It's a PDF so if you can send me your email, I'll forward you my copy. My email is myfamroots (at) There will be information in about the reunion, how to join etc. I also have a Facebook page. Many of the members are your cousins in Canada. Search on Outhouse Family Historical Society. So nice to meet another cousin!

I don't know if you are aware of this, but there is an Outhouse Family Historical Society. We have about 500 members throughout the US and Canada. We put out a newsletter three times a year and hold reunions in different parts of the US every other year. This year is Colorado (I'm hosting). Let me know if you'd like more info.

Ron Hanks
George E Lindsey
Hi Paula,
I think I had entered this memorial because someone had a photo request for Mesa Lindsey and we found there was no memorial entered her husband George. The William Lindsey listed in the family links is a sibling, not a son. I seem to recall that someone had previously contacted me about this memorial, I suspect it was to add the parental links. I have not done any research on this family, so I cant say with certainty that the links are correct. I would be willing to transfer the memorial to you and let you make any corrections or additions as you see fit.
As for the Hanks connection, my family comes from Marion Co.,IL. I have a couple of Hanks relatives in the Macon County area but for the most part there is no connection.

Thanks, Ron

Sorry not to have sent this sooner, but I have been in the midst of a lot of work on the tree, and have now uploated the newest version to You can see it at

I have also been adding a lot of records to Findagrave, so you may find some more things there.

You are probably very familiar with the Digby GenWeb site and with the Nova Scotia Historical Vital Statistics websites, but if not, I could send you the links. I use those a lot!

My husband is related to her Outhouse husband I believe but will check my records later. We are in the car on our way home but we' were just in Nova Scotia for a couple of weeks. There are lots of Outhouse families there. My husband is related to a fair number of them. I do have a tree for his family on and could send you the link if it might be of help to you.

I follow Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers and your request falls outside those guidelines. However, I always am happy to review information others send regarding my memorials and try to update in a timely manner. Simply use the Edit tab on the memorial and then fill out whatever changes you would like to suggest.

RE: Laura Roher
Didn't have much time to get on the computer until today. Here are my sources.

1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and the 1930 United States Federal Census - they all list her place of birth in Tennessee.

I found her and Robert Humphrey listed in the Illinois marriage index - 23 December 1877.

I have a copy of her marriage license to my great-great grandfather listing her widowed married name of Humphrey. 10 June 1883.

In the 1910 census she is listed as a widow.

The 1920 census shows her married to John Roher and does indeed show she was born in Tennessee.

I've sent some other corrections and would appreciate if you would approve them. Also, please link her parents: Alex High memorial #3255629. Her mother's memorial #40306857 - Mary Ann Polly Cloud Terrell.

RE: Laura Roher
Are you sure she was the mother of his children? Wouldn't Mary Elizabeth Munson have been the mother of his children given her death date? I thought she was a second wife and didn't have any children together. The dates don't match up. Maybe there are 2 Laura's. Do you have any knowledge of her 1st husband John Humphrey or her 2nd husband William Ballard? I received my information from another genealogist who visited the family in Iowa and spoke with the granddaughter of Laura's sister Mary. Laura was supposedly married many times. I've only found the marriage record of her and my great-great grandfather William Ballard.

oh and the death date on Laura's memorial doesn't match her stone. Is the stone in error? That happens.
