Pepper Williams
Herbert Beaver photo
My name is Pepper Williams and I am writing an article for the Gatchell Museum here in Buffalo, WY on the biographies of the names on our War Memorial. I am working on World War One. One of the names is Herbert Beaver. I was hoping you would allow me to use the picture you added to his memorial in the article. If you are okay with me using the picture, how do you want the photo credit?

Thanks so much!

RE: Joseph Perrier
It's good his family had the resources to do what was best for Joseph when he needed treatment. I hope he got very good care there. If I stumble across anything else about Joseph I'll sure let you know.

I wasn't sure either, looks like that person was in a hospital for the criminally insane? Did they do that often for maybe dementia back then?

I believe this is the grave of John B Paris born about 1786 probably in Rowan Co NC the son of James Parris and Mary Morgan. John married Mary Ann Wasson Oct 30, 1811 in Estill Co KY. They moved to Davis Co IA from Ralls Co MO just a few years before he died on Apr 20, 1854. I visited the cemetery a few years ago and believe that his wife is buried beside him with no headstone. She died on Apr 17, 1878. Mary's mother, Francis Wasson is also buried at Paris Cemetery. Her father died in Ralls Co MO. Let me know if you have further or different information. Thanks for putting the cemetery records on Find a Grave. Joanne White

Hi Carla,

I am a contributor to find a grave, Betty Moeller. Would it be possible to transfer John Andrew Askey to me as I am his great great granddaughter.

Thanks so much.

Marcus Eller

It appears that Marcus' last name is actually Ellis. I've loaded a picture of the stone with the correct spelling. If it actually is Eller, please let me know and I'll remove the picture.

Thanks kid.

RE: e-mail
Hi Karen,

I do apologize for taking way too long to respond to your previous emails. My Aunt Lynelle is still living and would probably be able to answer the questions that you asked. I will get with her in the next day or two and find out and then let you know.

By the way, Martha married my dad James Owen.

Hi Carla,

You're welcome, and thank you. It would be nice to locate the hubby, but I am sure he will show up one day.

Mary Tawney Bullard
Hi Carla,

Per your comment; "Mary's mother link fell through though since that lady died a year before Mary was born."

From what I can see, Mary was born in 1857. Her mother, Sarah, #33894486 died in 1866 when Mary was roughly 9 years of age. Are my eyes playing tricks on me?

Thanks in advance for taking another look. Have a good weekend.

RE: Regarding Conrad's Civil War Service
I added another view of the tombstone without the GAR emblem present.

Loretta Mae Carpenter Bryant
Carla, There should be another update for Loretta's memorial. Find A Grave changed some things around and on your bio page, at the top, there is an "edit" tab and the suggestion should be there (includes parents links). You won't get an e-mail telling you it's there. I guess now, we're expected to remember to look there for updates. Please let me know if you don't find it and I'll resend. Here's the link
Thank you,

RE: Regarding Conrad's Civil War Service
Thank you for reminding me. I have deleted the picture. I am not at home right now, but I will crop that picture to remove the GAR marker and repost at my first opportunity.

Regarding Conrad's Civil War Service
According to the National Archives and Records Administration pension cards of Civil War veterans Conrad M. Tharp filed pension application number 1111974, as an invalid, on May 12, 1892 from the state of Iowa. He claimed service in Company E of the 2nd Regiment of the Iowa Infantry. I have been unable to find Conrad in any rosters, and evidently the federal government was unable to find any service records as well. The pension card does not have a certificate number assigned which would have indicated pension approval. The same was the case for Augustus M. Tharp who filed pension application number 1249329, as an invalid, on May 31, 1900 from the state of Iowa, but had no certificate number assigned. On the other hand brother Nathan's pension application card does have a certificate number assigned, 961402, and his enlistment is documented in "Roster and Record of Iowa Troops In the Rebellion, Vol. 1 thru VI" by Guy E. Logan; E. H. English, State Printer; Des Moines; 1908-11.

Thanks for the transfer. No worry about how long it took. We all have lives besides our family histories :-)

I noticed on the Find a Grave posting for Synthia (Cynthia) Ann Kelley, you mentioned information from the family's Bible. Do you have access to this bible? Synthia's brother, Tyra Harris Kelley, would be my great great grandfather. You can email me at Thanks in advance.

RE: **Sponsorship** of Joseph Vanous
My apologies Carla,

Joseph is in a family tree I created for my husband's family. I was able to get to his page and see that I did sponsor the page, and did send the brief info on his bio.

Sorry for the confusion,

Added by Nanny on Aug 21, 2013 12:46 PM

RE: **Sponsorship**

Joseph Vanous's name is not ringing any bells, and you send me his Find A Grave #.

Thanks, Nanny

Memorial # 114564118. Thanks for your note at that memorial flower site about some of her children. The will of her husband lists even more. I have listed them in the bio section of her memorial.

The date has now been added for Nancy's stone. Thanks for doing the math! Sometimes I miss one when I'm adding several from cemeteries. I try to figure out the dates when I post.
