I see that James Potts is an ancestor of yours. He is a 2nd cousin 7x removed from me. We share some common ancestors. Please contact me. I'd like to exchange info on family lines.

Thank you and Merry Christmas.

Abraham Hornback
Hi Barbara~
I think you have Abraham mixed up with his Grandfather Abraham.
Abraham Hornback (1) Memorial# 62930670

John Hornback Memorial# 62930459

Abraham Hornback (2) Memorial#67535340

Abraham Hornback (?) Memorial# 13689616
Shows he died Jan 29, 1833 at what looks like 61 years. That would mean he was born abt Jan 29, 1772. About 10 years after (1) was born. Brother? Cousin? Hard to tell.

Wanted you to know that Marsha Hankermeyer and I have buried Aunt Anna's cremains in the Freed section of the Ottumwa Cemetery. She is just a few feet away from Uncle Carl.

John Vanroy Blaylock & Hannah Hammer
Mrs. Freed,

I've just started researching my husbands line and am hoping you can help. I'm having trouble locating records beyond John and Hannah. Little background on husband in a Virginia native and we found it very interesting that his 4GG was born in VA! His uncle is still farming Blaylock land in Iowa. Please contact me. Would live to tap into your knowledge.

Kind Regards,

John Hammer, Nancy (York) Hammer, and daughter Hannah Hammer
I think we may be related (distantly, anyway). Found your memorials today for John, Nancy, and Hannah. If my info is correct, I have listed in my tree a John Hammer and a Anna Nancy York (could possibly be Nancy Anne York) as my 4x great grandparents. I have one of their children as a Hannah. There are ten children of John and Nancy listed (that I could find):
Martha Patty
Julia Ann

Would any of this sound familiar?

Austin Hammer above was supposed to operated the grist mill at Hauns Mill, Mo. where the Haun's Mill Massacre took place.

Martha Patty Hammer above was my 3x great grandmother who was married to Jesse Moore. One of their children was Mercy (Moore) Cross, my 2x great grandmother, who is buried in Concord Cemetery, Macon County, Mo. about 3 miles from where I live.

George Harper
Thanks for the info on the memorial page for George Harper in Ottumwa, Iowa. I am a descendent of Mary Ann Harper who married Alexander Thompson in 1858 in Belmont, Ontario Canada through their first daughter Genetta. They joined the family in Iowa about 1861. I have been trying to find information previous to George's appearance in the 1851 census and when he immigrated to Canada. Do you have any further information on George or Eliza. It seems Eliza died before the family immigrated to Iowa in 1854. Another question to ponder, where George and Eliza married in Ireland or in Canada?

I am also the great grand daughter of James Perry Baker, my mothers father was Austin Baker who was married to Amy Chapman! We must be related.

Hazel and George
Thanks Barb! When I enlarged the picture, I could clearly see that it wasn't Carl.

I visited the Freed graves in Ottumwa this past June. The top of the large 'Freed' stone was loose so I am having it repaired.

Hope all is well with you. David Steele

RE: Martha Young headstone picture
You're welcome. I wish her name had been included on the headstone. I also added the other wife's headstone (can't remember her name just now!).

There is a memorial about Hannah mentioned on Hannah's findagrave page - do you have a photo of this memorial that you could share?

You are very welcome, so glad to hear that you received a notice, when I uploaded the photo it didnt notify me of that so I am happy to see it actually did let you that I had found his stone.

Charles Oris
Charles 'Nathan' Clark
This person is listed on your page. I was actually named after him. However, there is some confusion in my family about the middle name. The name on his funeral card, which matches the birth and death dates exactly ("died December 31. 1887, aged 71 years") is Charles Nelson Clark . This is my first and middle name. I would be happy to provide a picture for the site, but of course the names need to match. Was wondering how you derived the name, and how you might be related to the Clark's of Caledonia ,Ohio. Thanks.

Thank you for your work
While looking to see what Wood family is living in the area, I found your Baker's right door to some which really makes me wonder. Have you had your YDNA done? I'm down from Elder Nathan Baker Find A Grave Memorial# 13480231

Betty Patterson
John Lukens Nicholson
Hello Barbara,
I am helping a friend research the Nicholson Family and was fortunate to find the memorials you are managing on Find-a-Grave. You did a wonderful job with the memorials I looked at. They are some of THE best!!!
John Lukens Nicholson is her 2 X Great Grandfather. She discovered his Father and Mother, John and Alice [Lukens] Nicholson but not found his b.p. or who his Parents are. Can you help with any of that? My friend thought Alice's husband John was born in Vermont but she can't remember who told her. She is really wanting to find John's Parents and so far, I am not getting very far.
We would really appreciate your help.
Thank you so very much for the headstone pictures, Betty in California
