RE: Edna May Finan? Bowden
Hi Robert;

I sent a private email to you a few days ago but just to confirm your email address that I had was still the same. I believe I do have some documents that I can send to you to confirm the connecting links from Bowden-Finan-Bowden-Milks. Would you send an email to me at my home then I can forward it to you. Thanks.

RE: Edna May Finan? Bowden
Hi Robert;

I am not sure if I can answer your questions but will check & get back to you. I haven't been doing any research recently on that family but the replies from requests sometimes just appear out of the blue & then it gets me thinking again. It is amazing how 'close' one can become with their ancestors after doing some deep searching. Elaine

You are very welcome. As you can see the engraving is very worn so I had to rub a little dirt on it to make it more visible. No other Milks were there that I could find but there are some headstones there too weathered to read. Platea is a VERY SMALL community and it's cemetery is tiny but peaceful and very well maintained.

RE: Milks
Those are the names and dates. All markers are in a horizontal row, large monument is in the center. It would certainly appear they belong together. I will be happy to add the photos.

I also have marker photos for

Martin L Milks 1832-1850
Nelson C Milks 1879-1953 and
Sophia Milks 1879-1953

These markers are in the same location

M Waite
Catherine Banton Dibble
Her death date is on the stone. Good luck on my Waite line. My grandfather Adolph Waite was born 1n St. Jacob, Ill. in 1862. No clue about his mother or father. I got into ancestry too late, everyone that might have known who they were are gone. His obit details his education and work career but nothing about his parents. Mike

RE: JamesP.Dibble
I ran across this memorial and wondered if she could be James' wife . . . Memorial# 123520491 If not, it's quite the coincidence.

Robert, I thank you for your continued patience with me and my less than stellar computer skills. Please see the Carol and Winifred Milks memorial pages. I hope they are okay with you. Charles and Louise will be done by Saturday. I also photos of the following gravestones in the same large family plot: Ida (wife of Henry), Neil (son of Carol and Winifred), Henry, Fay, and lastly Barbara (daughter of Carol and Winifred.) Do you want to originate pages for these? Lori

Sunset Hill Cemetery
I took photos of the Milks family that you requested. Because my "claims" of Find A Grave requests exceeded 20 for the day, I could not claim the Milks. But, know that the photos will be coming soon to your memorials! Sunset is a very beautiful, quiet and immaculately kept cemetery with many personal touches on the graves. Lori

RE: Milks family in Crane Cemetery
I found that cemetery while researching the Eaton family, I am glad that I took pictures while I was there. I did not notice any other Milks headstones, If I can talk my husband into another visit I will look again.

RE: JamesP.Dibble
Thank you for the clarification. I will enter the town in the bio section, since it is not an option under that county.

Added by HJ on Sep 16, 2013 6:59 AM

RE: JamesP.Dibble
Thank you for your confirmation and the additional information. I am wondering--is his place of birth Fulton, or Fultonham? Find A Grave does not have Fulton as an option for that county in N.Y. I have also added a bit more info to his biography, which might interest you. Thanks again!

Added by HJ on Sep 15, 2013 5:07 PM

Hello! Some time back, you had made a photo request for the gravestone of JamesP.Dibble, buried in UnionGrove Cem., PutnamCo., IL. I received a request to link James to his mother, ElizabethBetseyDibble, memorial # 116634813. Would you possibly be able to confirm that this link is correct? Thank you!

RE: William Hodgins
Semper Fi!
I have taken pictures (8,000) of all of the headstones except for the oldest part of GAR. My guess is that would make the 1915 date more likely than the 1951 date. The original listing of internments for GAR came from a website that listed all individuals in GAR. Was the Senior Hodges in the military?
Many Blessings!

Found info at Joliet Library, Lockport Cemetery Index. Not sure why I didn't have a photo. Will have to go back and look through cemetery next week. I'll be able to double check dates...

Hi Robert,

Thanks so much for posting the 4 McCray gravestones. I needed to make sure these were actually McCray's and not McGray's.
