Looking for Rupert/Rupertz
Hello Marita,
I saw you wrote a memorial for Erna Mayrer, which is what has led me to ask you for information. Would you have any knowledge about a Voldemars Rupert/Rupertz? He died Feb 2, 1992. His wife was an Erna. Family Search says he's buried in Homewood, but I see no listing for him. I do see this Erna. There may be other names related - Lacis and D. Delsol. Ringing any bells on your end?
Thanks, Jayne

Do you have a source for the maiden name of Mary Blew? Do you know who her parents were? Was she first married to an Ennis?

Sarah "Wright" Collins (nee Cilley)
Hi -

It would be helpful if the memorial for Sarah Collins could say that researchers have different thoughts about Sarah's maiden name. I have fairly substantial proof that Sarah/Salley's maiden name was Cilley, her father was Benjamin Cilley, her sister was Betsey Cilly who married Richard Collins (brother to Benjamin), and her mother was Betsey Edmunds Cilley, which is why Salley and Ben named their son Edmunds (he went by Edmund, but anyway, he was named for his mom's mother's maiden name). Yes, someone named Benjamin Collins married someone named Sarah Wright, but that marriage took place several years after this Ben and this Salley had begun their family, and that marriage took place in Virginia. They lived in New Hampshire and in Ohio. It would be helpful to all researchers if at least a difference of opinion were made known. Thanks.

Moriah Longo
Mary Miller Francisco
Hi 😊
I am working on my direct line and Mary Miller Francisco is a great grandmother of mine. On FindAGrave there are 2 entries both that are maintained by you. I was merely wondering if they are in fact the same person and which information is the most correct and if you would happen to have any other information on her.

Thank you so much!
Moriah Longo

I'll have to see if I can find out, it was noted on his wife's obit page, not in her obit. Just never know what you might find? There are Dursch's that attend my church, I'll have to ask them, if they know anything, they are related some how. Thanks, Jean

Jim and Scott Yount
John Franklin Yount photo
Hi Marita,
We are assembling our YOUNT family history, and noticed you had submitted the photo of John Franklin Yount. awesome! We are curious if you have any other "Yount" photos. Specifically looking for John's father, Elam Yount, or mother, Mary Frances(Kyle). Of course any nephews, cousins, etc would be treasured as well. Perhaps even William Jason Yount or his wife Maria Ellen(Tobias)? So many older family pictures get lost in shoeboxes, etc, and online photo searches are extremely difficult. Any help and/or direction is appreciated greatly!
We recently visited Ohio, and got so many family headstone trying to put person photos with the headstones.
Thanks for all the work you do!!

Joan Mast
William Sedwick Montgomer/Minnie Easterday
Hello, I am researching the Montgomery family with my mother ( her relatives ) and am missing some information for Donald Montgomery McRuer. I wondered if you knew who his wife was, children etc. Also in my mom family bible it talks of 5 children born to William Sedwick Montgomery and Minnie Josephine Easterday. But we have only been able to locate three. Josephine Payne, Inza Montgomery McRuer and Melville Montgomery. The other two were Erma Montgomery and Nannie Montgomery. Also, do you exact birth and death dates for Josephine. We have born 1886 and died 1953.
It's very fun researching our history. Any assistance is much appreciated! Joan Montgomery Mast

Linda Campbell
Gearheart aka Sheets Cemetery Published Info
Hi - My name is Linda Campbell. I am the co-chair with Sharon Maingi on the committee for the restoration of the Elizabeth Township Cemeteries, Miami County, Ohio.
The information on line you posted is not in Piqua Ohio. The cemetery is in Section 33, south side of Knoop Road which you may know as there are pictures of the entrance to the walled cemetery.
There is now a home built adjacent to the cemetery and the owners have been mowing it. We are hoping to have it restored but have been told that the ancestors of the Gearheart family are the actual owners....this from the Elizabeth Township Trustees at a meeting in 2011.
We as a historical society still plan to have this cemetery restored either through the Trustees, the family that we can find or by fund raising for the project.
Just wanted to let you know that this cemetery will not be found in or near Piqua. If there were an address, it would be Troy, Ohio.
Thank you, Linda Campbell

RE: John W. Vicory Marriages/families
Thanks so much for the information. I assumed that John and Etta divorced at some point by the ages of the children provided on Find A Grave but have been unable to find a legal record confirming this. Of course records at this time aren't always complete. I appreciate any information you can provide. I just want to make sure I get the right mother with the right children going forward and it appears that Albert's mom is indeed Etta M Wise.

John W. Vicory Marriages/families
Hi Marita--I am doing some research for my husband's Vicory family out of Dayton, Ohio. I appreciate the research you have done for John W. Vicory and his wives and children. However, I am confused as to the dissolution and order of the marriages. My husband descends from Albert Vicory, son of John and Etta Wise Lutz Vicory. Did their marriage end in divorce? I assume John married Lulu Shinkle following the end of the marriage to Etta and I assume it was divorce since John died just a year after Etta. I am also curious if you know when Etta Wise's marriage to "Lutz" took place. I haven't come across any children named Lutz in her tree. Any info you can provide as to the order of marriages is appreciated. I have made note of the various mothers and children from your research with Find A Grave. It is greatly appreciated!

McDonald family in Calhoun County, Illinois
Hi Marita,

I know you have done extensive research on the McDonald family in Calhoun County, Illinois. I thought you might be a good person to ask about a question regarding the McDonald family that another Find A Grave contributor brought to me.

Do you have any information on John William McDonald, Sr. and his wife, Clarissa Reeves in your files? They lived in Calhoun County and probably Lincoln County, Missouri as well. Any marriage date or place for them? Death/burial date or place? Their children were born from 1876 to 1891. Both John William and Clarissa McDonald seem to have passed away before 1900.

The person who wrote to me also asked if I had any information regarding what happened to the mother of Clarissa Reeves McDonald. I know that may be outside your line of interest, but thought you might have come across something in your studies.

Thanks so much for any help or suggestions you may be able to provide!
