Risley family
Hi Julie,

I am looking for information on Emory and Margaret Risley who last lived in Perry County MO around 1884? I see you have information on find a grave of a sibling of Clyde Belle's who was probably a cousin to my relatives. My great grandmother Flora Risley and her sister Dora, who died around 17 and was buried in a Pullum grave, were apparently left with this family and for my great grandmother until she was married at 16 to Sylvester Shaw. But it seems as if their parents Emory and Margaret disappeared with no trace. I have contacted Illinois surrounding counties and Perry County with no help. Sometimes when someone is in charge of a find a grave they are a relative so I didn't know in your case, if so, and if you were familiar with the family. I have traced Emory's family to the 1600's but don't know what happened to him. Thanks for any help! Karen Oh and my email is RememberYHWH@Gmail.Com

I just found some information on Elijah Chaffin on Findagrave. I am in the Bitterroot Valley, Montana and trying to find out some more information on Elijah Chaffin and where he settled here around Corvallis. Do you have any more information and are you related to him? Please let me know

In The book "Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever in Western Montana - Anatomy of a pestilence", Robert N. Philip says: "on a gravestone in the present Corvallis cemetery is the inscription: 'Jonas Williams, age 21 years and 14 days, died May, 19, 1873' ".
This is your photo!
I'm studying spotted fever, and wish to make a small homemade video about the disease, to post on you tube.
Can I use the image of your photo?

From s. Paulo, Brazil.

Charlotte Otto
I just claimed your request for Charlotte Otto at St Peters cemetery. Sorry to say, I could not find a headstone. There are several stones that I could not read. It is a very small cemetery that I have searched on two occasions. It's very quiet and peaceful surrounded with corn fields. You ask for a photo of the church. The church is down the road a half mile or so I'm guessing. I could email those to you.

RE: Thomas Carr
No, the one I'm looking for died on 1 Jul 1911 in a railroading accident in Chicago. I have some very interesting press clippings about the mixup of two Thomas Carr bodies from Denver Post, that led me to Green mount Cemetery. If interested, email at Perhaps you can solve the mystery of 'Where's Thomas Carr?'

RE: FAG site 61372691 / Eugene Andrews
Hi Julie,

Eugene isn't a direct relative of mine. He married a first cousin 2x removed (Belva Robuck). If you want to transfer management, I would edit the middle name. No biggee either way.

Best regards to you.

FAG site 61372691 / Eugene Andrews
Julie, could you check the middle name for this person? My records indicate his middle name was Anthony instead of Herman as shown on the site. The source of my info is family records, but it is supported by the photo of the headstone which shows the middle initial "A."

BTW, congratulations on your Animas City Cemetery website. It is outstanding.

Sylvester Goodrich

I just came across Sylvester Goodrich the past couple of days and found his ancestors.

Sylvester (Alvah, David, Thomas, James, Thomas, Ephraim, William "the Ensign") Alvah is the weak link as I have not been able to find a whole lot of information on him. Sylvester went from CO to WA and died there May 27, 1909. After Mary either died or divorced, Sylvester married Annie Rommel.

My lineage Carl (Cora, John, Eli, Levi, Ashbel, James,Thomas,Ephraim, William "The Elder"). Eli on back can be found in "The Goodrich Family in America" book by Lafayette Wallace Case published in 1889.

I sure would be interested in any information you might have on Sylvester Goodrich. Thanks.

For Charles Adamson buried in Greenmount Cemetery,Durango, CO, he was born February 13, 1865 in Iowa and died in Durango, Laplata County, Colorado. He was married to Elizabeth (Lizzie) A. Goodrich in 1893 and she was born in December 1867 in Illinois. She was the daughter of Joel P. Goodrich and Mary C. Elliott. Please link Elizabeth to her spouse, Charles F. Adamson and her parents. Joel and Mary are buried in Hillside Cemetery, North Loup, Valley County, NE. Charles and Elizabeth did not have any children.
