RE: Dwight Leroy Yard
Finally got back on here and deleted back photo. I take the pics and my husband puts them on. Are any of the other Yards relatives?

Memorial 126731926
Hi, Denise, I just discover Lester Layzell's Find A Grave Memorial. I wonder if you are related to him. You have listed his name as Lester Paul Layzell, but the tombstone says Lester J. and I have found other records stating his middle initial is "J". His son's name is Paul Lester Layzell and he died just 7 days after his father. So I am wondering if that is where the confusion came from. I appreciate your work in photographing these graves. Thank you. Marlene Case

Waterman Headstone Photos
Thank you so much, Denise, for photographing the gravestones of so many of my Waterman family. I visit up there fairly often, but I find myself running around the Owaneco Cemetery and one in Casey, IL, so I haven't photographed many in Oak Hill, and I missed having them. You make many people happy, just being able to see where loved ones lie, and to keep them from being forgotten. Thank you, thank you. Rita Waterman Volpe

Lewis Jerome Allton # # 129843780
I'm wondering if you would mind transferring Lewis Jerome Allton's page to me. He was my grand uncle. And I'm actively researching him and his brother Edward D. Allton at this time. I would really love to take care of both of them. Thanks so much for starting his page with the photo of his headstone. I appreciate all you do.

Oh My gosh, I just saw that there was a photo of my Great uncle's headstone that you had taken. I just want to say thanks from the bottom of my heart for doing that. I am in Minneapolis so it might have been a very long time before I could get out there to take a photo, I really appreciate your help very much. As you can see, I do what you do as well.

Recent Transfer 128008527
Thank you for making this transfer of my Aunt and the photo you added for Carl Kunard. I have many ancestors in the Oak Hill Cemetery in Taylorville. Thanks again for doing such a great job of covering this cemetery. Anyone with the name Hord, Kunard, Fathergale is an ancestor of mine. And there are others too. I will ask for their transfers one at a time so I can enhance information on a case by case basis as time permits.

Thanks again!

Julia Watkins Atkinson grave memorial
As an addendum to the message I just left. I just had a thought. Could the "Watkins" have come from the fact that she was married to "W.Atkin-son". Perhaps the "on" was faded as the marker is so old?

Julia Watkins Atkinson grave memorial
I have a question for you. I have been doing my family tree and have been looking for the wife of a great great uncle of mine. Her name is Julia Irwin born 1818 in Virginia. She married Robert Henry Sweeney. They had one daughter named Sarah Sweeney. Robert Henry died in 1844. Julia remarried a man named William Atkinson. Her daughter Sarah married John Atkinson (Williams son). William had two wives that I know of in his lifetime, Elizabeth Snodgrass and Julia Irwin Sweeney. I suspect that the Julia Atkinson that you listed in the Oak Hill Cemetery, as Julia Watkins Atkinson is really Julia Irwin Sweeney Atkinson. (Julia moved in with her daughter and son in law in Christian County Illinois - from Ohio County, WV-- when William Atkinson passed away.) Can I ask where you got the "Watkins" from? Thanks so much!

Denise, thank you so much for adding the photo of Joe and Mary Perona to their memorials! Mary is my grand aunt and I was happy to see that her photo is on her headstone.

Hi Denise! Thank you so much for transferring my mother's page. I am just curious - how did you learn of her passing? Thank you again, Chi

RE: Flahart
Thank you very much.
You can also see the FLAHAUT family on our family tree :
You can choose English as a language, except for the notes. It is free.

I put the tombstones in the green squares "medias" on the sheet of each person when I find them.
As a hobby, I try to find back the thousands of coal-miners of my region who emigrated to the USA (mainly Pennsylvania, Illinois, Kansas and Colorado).
They are already about 2000 on our tree, but it is far to be finished !

Best regards,

Jean-Luc Coubronne, Pas-de-Calais, France

Jacoby Lowney
RE: Kiley
Denise, I would be so grateful! Thank you so much for taking the time. I wanted to give you a little bit of the back story on him. He was the Jockey who rode atop the most famous race horse to win the Kentcucky Derby. It was the Derby of 1889 where an unknown horse from Montana Territory arrived on the eastern turfs and won the first triple crown ever. He raced against Proctor Knott. To this date, his time for the track distance has never been beat as they changed the track length shortly afterwards. All racing money was on Proctor Knott who ultimately lost to Spokane. PLease see my webpage which tells the story.

Thanks again Denise! I truly appreciate it. Jacoby

RE: Rogers, Edwin Ruthvin
Got interrupted, and msg got away from me.

This family may be a link to a long mystery in our family. I'm looking for a live decendant who has a record of who Mary Margaret McIver's mother was, and when and what happened to her. I have Matilda Cain or McCain. Her father William Donald McIver married again, but we don't know if he was widowed or divorced, or when and where Matilda died.

Other children I could not find in Findagrave were:
Ida Grace Rogers Hunter m:Charles W. Hunter
Mariah "Marrie" Rogers Wilkinson m:Joseph Wilkinson (found Joseph)
And Emma Rogers

Thank you again for your kind deeds. Hopefully, I can help you someday. You can write me direct at
