Billion graves is not correct. John & Bertha Gallamore are buried in the Clearspring Church Cemetery. I have tried to get them to change it on my own families graves but no one answers me. Someone posted them as being in the Bower Cemetery and they are not.

RE: Mary Pool
I accidentally posted a photo to the wrong name. Sorry!! Some of the stones at Brush Creek are almost impossible
to read. I was not able to find all of the stones, but would like to return and try again packing flour into the indentations to see if maybe they become a little more legible!

John and Serilda Hooker
I am a Bower descendent and noticed you had made memorials for John B. Hooker [47242904] and his wife Serilda Bower Hooker [4724494]. They are buried at Crown Hill in New Washington, IN. Would you mind linking them and then linking Serilda to her parents? Her parents are John and Angelina Robinett/Robnett Bower. They are buried at Fouts Cemetery in Clark County. John S. Bower's number is 5098689 and Angelina's is 5098685. Thanking you in advance for the help.
Barbara Robison Lee

p.s. We thought Serilda's name was Serilla.

Moses Billings
I found the stone of Moses Billings. Turns out I was looking in the wrong block last time I looked. Mose's stone is in the next block over from all the other Billings I found last time. Mose's name is on the right side of the stone. On the front is Seleh Billings and on the left is Mary Huggins, wife of Seleh Billings.

RE: Moses Taylor
I found the following obituary in the February 7, 1901 Nashua Reporter newspaper:

The severe attack of partial paralysis which Mrs. H. A. Scales had been suffering for nearly a week, culminated in her death last Thursday evening. Her age was 73 years, 5 months, and 22 days. Mary C. Billings, daughter of Selah and Mary Billings, deceased, was born in the town of Jackson, Washington Co., N. Y., Aug. 9, 1827. In the fall of 1856 she moved with her parents to Wisconsin and six months later, March 10, 1857, at Columbus, Wis., she was married to H. A. Scales, who survives her. In the fall they came to Nashua, where they have since lived. She was the mother of four children, two having preceeded her--James H. in youth and Mrs. Will Shirk nearly four years ago. The others, Lucius B. Scales and Mrs. L. D. Stedman, survive her. Besides these there are three brothers, James R., of Chicago, Arlondo of Parsons, S. D., and Charles E. of Nashua, and numerous other relatives. The deceased in her early youth joined what was known as the Scotch Presbyterian church. When she came to Nashua she transferred her membership to the Congregational church, being one of its charter members. She was a faithful member and throughout her life exemplified the teachings of Him she had chosen to follow. The funeral services were held in the Congregational church on Sunday afternoon, conducted by Rev. J. A. Sutton, who preached on "A Better Country the Hope of the Soul", taking his text from Hebrews VI.16. The interment was at Greenwood.

I noticed there was no mention of Moses as one of her brothers.

RE: Moses Taylor
Glad I could help. Here's a list of all the Billings supposed to be buried at Greenwood cemetery:

Burton A. Billings
Civil war veteran

Dr. Charles Maurice Billings
1838-September 4, 1906
born Hatfield, Mass.

Charles H. Billings

Delia Smith Billings
Wife of Charles H. (first wife)

Mary Layton Billings
Wife of Charles H.(2nd wife)

Charles H. Billings
1869-August 25, 1906

Minna H. Billings
died 26th August 1905
aged 35
Wife of Charles (1st wife)

----- Billings
1877-December 28, 1918
Wife of Charles (2nd wife)

Moses Billings
1834-December 6, 1862

Sanford Billings
1817-April 3, 1886
born Coleays Manor, Canada

Caroline Brooks Billings
Wife of Sanford

Selah Billings
1801-February 10, 1888

Mary Huggins Billings
1804--February 17, 1895
Wife of Selah

Not sure if this helps. I also found that according to the 1860 census Moses Billings was a 24 y/o teacher, born in New York State, who was living in the home of Henry Baker, a farmer, in Bradford twp., Chickasaw Co., IA. There are no other females close to Mose's age living in the home other than Mr. Baker's wife so Moses must not have got married until after the date on the census which is June 4, 1860. Perhaps you already know this but I thought I'd include it just in case.

RE: Charles, Catherine, Jasper Derry
You are very welcome, no, I don't think she has a stone there, if she did, I would have taken that one too, if I find families, I like to keep them together. Next time I go up there, I'll call the cemetery association and see what I can find out.

Orlando Billings in Madison SD
I looked in the area of block 9 lot 9 but I didn't see a marker for Orlando. I was able to confirm the burial spot using the record books at the Graceland Cemetery. I did get a photo of the possible burial spot. I could upload it or send it to you if you want. Paul Fiskum

I found an obituary for George Thomas McGuire in the Ashland, NE paper, born July 29 1872 in Missouri and died Jan 29, 1927, Ashland, NE. Does he connect to you? Carman

Linda, I have been looking up some of the Hooker obituaries and marriages at the Historical Society. For some reason I didn't find Robert's and Rachel's obituaries even though Ashland does have papers at that time. Carman

RE: Lawrence Osborn

You're welcome. While there, I came across another marker for Sophia Osborn not too far from the marker for Lawrence. She was not entered into the listing for this cemetery so I added her name. I don't know if there is any relationship with Lawrence, but if so, Ithought I should let you know. Let me know if you would like to have me transfer her listing to you.

RE: Sarah Billings
You are welcome. Isn't it nice when you get more than you asked for? Glad to be of assistance. If you make memorials for the other two put in a request for a picture and I'll fulfill it quickly.

You're welcome
Hi Linda,
I was happy to take the pictures of the Hookers. The cemetery wasn't too big so it was easy to locate most of them. The trick is finding the right time of day so the sunlight is best. Enjoy your research! If there is ever anything I can do for you in southern Indiana or the Louisville, KY area, please let me know.
