Wow! That response was above and beyond the call of duty! Thank you so much and yes, there are definite ties to my Hopkins & Millards. I left flowers and a note above yours on Morgan G. Millard's memorial. Take a look.
Thanks again for all of your research!

Hello,
I'm curious to know why this cemetery is named Millard, as I have Millard ancestors in my family.
Thanks,

Kent,
Thank you so, so much. The picture helps a lot. Her memorial seemed so empty before. Have requested a picture of the tombstone as well. Hopefully, someone can soon help with that.

Hi Kent, The cemetery reading had two Jonathan's in two different plots ,beside each other. I'll have to check it out. One has a double stone with Luvan Boynton. Probably one is the father and one is a son. with mixed up dates. Any way, I'll delete one and check it out when I'm there again. Thank you, Larry

Southside Cemetery, South Dakota,
Hello,
The picture you took of the Southside Cemetery is a good one, however, it is not showing up on each memorial as some do. Is there an edit that you can do to release your photo to each memorial? If not, please, post it to Georgene Crissman Kilpatrick as one of her photos.
Thank you.
Regards,

Kitty Ging
Hello, I have no clue where she is buried, but my best guess would be possibly NY NY. That is where she and her twin sister were from. She had/has a twin named Julia (same first name as Claus Blixt's wife)Her name is spelled differently depending on where you see it. Catherine Ging, Katherine Ging, and Kitty of course. Not sure what her legal first name is C or K.
Claus was so repentant of his act. As the prison said he went "quite mad" over the guilt. He is the one who told the police he committed the crime. Harry was furious. Said in his final interview "if he had killed Claus like he planned he wouldn't have been caught"

Riley Stone
Kent,

I noticed that you've got information about my ancestor (Great Great Grandfather) Riley Stone. I've been doing research on this part of the family for about 40 years, and am excited to see that you have information (and a photo) that I have never seen!

I will continue to review your site, and look forward to hearing more.

Here's some information that I have about "James Riley Stone"

James Riley Stone, was born on May 27, 1822 in Smithfield,
Madison County, New York. No record of his parents has been
found, but it was written that they were of Welsh and English
heritage and that they came to New York from Connecticut.

A Stone Mason: Riley began his career in farming
and later worked as a stone mason. The Stone family was ever
one of distinction in New York state, and as a stone mason,
Riley had few peers in his profession. Many monuments of his
skill and handiwork are still to be seen at Peterboro, New
York. James Stone married Pamela Coe Ellinwood on March 29,
1849.

The Civil War: During the dark days of the of the
Rebellion, he recruited Company F, of the 157th New York
Volunteer Infantry, and was commissioned captain of his
company, being mustered in as such September 19, 1862. He was
in the Army of the Potomac, and took part in the battles of the
Wilderness (Chancellorsville) and at Gettysburg.

Prisoner of War: At the battle of Gettysburg, he
was taken prisoner and sent to Libby Prison. He spent about 11
months there and was then transferred to Macon, Georgia, where
he died August 12, 1864. "After one year spent in Libby prison,
during which time he endured untold hardships, he was
transferred to a prison near Macon, Georgia, where he died
August 12, 1864, at the age of forty years. He was a brave
soldier and was greatly respected by his men as well as his
fellow officers. James died from "disease contacted in the
service of the United States" while in a rebel prisoner of War
Camp, on August 12, 1864 near Macon, Georgia. He was 42 years
old.

The following was obtained from Donna Dorrance Burdick. It is
published in a book about Smithfield "page 13, Snipets, Volume
2" "Not so many years ago, a "stone arch" bridge spanned Oneida
Creek in the Village of Peterboro on the Oxbow Road. When it
was dismantled in 1977, the bridge was believed to be the
oldest bridge in the state. It had previously been repaired in
1894, 1937 or 1938, and 1943. There is a story that colonial
coins were buried in the structure when it was built. The
Madison County Historical Society owns a Susan Dixwell Miller
"blueprint" photo of this bridge. The keystone was salvaged
and can be seen at the Peterboro Area Historical Society's
museum. Its inscription reads: Erected A.D. 1854 by R.S. James
Riley Stone was most frequently known as J. Riley of simply
Riley Stone. It was he, a mason living in Pleasant Valley, who
cut and laid the stone for the bridge. The stone was drawn to
the location by ox team and horses.

In 1861 and 1862, Stone served as Supervisor of the Town of
Smithfield. On 12 August 1862, J. Riley, aged 39, enlisted at
Hamilton, New York, in Company F, 157th New York Volunteer
Infantry. He was mustered as Captain of that company on
September 19. On the first day of fighting at Gettysburg, 1
July 1863, Stone was captured by the Confederates. He was
first sent to Libby Prison in Richmond, Virginia. Later he was
transferred to the officer's prison at Macon, Georgia.

One of Riley's fellow prisoners at Macon was Frank Place of
Cortland, New York. Place was Captain of Company C, 157th.
Prior to Place's parole in March of 1864, Riley asked him to
deliver his watch and other valuables to his family in
Smithfield. This Place (later Major Place) agreed to do. James
Riley died of starvation on 12 August 1864 and was buried at
Macon.

He left a widow, Pamela C., and five children in Smithfield.
Four sons were named Willis C., James A., Orna P, and Orlando
Lincoln. The daughter was named Mina L. The family moved west
where the sons became successful businessmen, doctors, and
lawyers. Many years later, James A. Stone, a lawyer in
Wisconsin, brought his daughter to Peterboro to show her the
bridge that his grandfather had built.

Ellen Thayer Correction
Hi,
Actually, Ellen was the daughter of Corodon/Gorodon/Corydon Tullar and
Abigail Fuller Scott. The information from the book by Bezaleel Thayer is incorrect. Bezaleel Thayer was distantly related to Ransom Thayer and his parents knew him and were raised in the same town (Mexico, Oswego County, New York). Also, do you know of Ransom and Ellen's son Fred M. Thayer he was born on 31 August 1884 in Dakota Territory and died between 1885-1898 in South Dakota. I haven't found a burial location as of yet. He could be buried with his mother in Redfield.
Thanks,
Brent Richardson

It is of personal preference that I do not list children in the bio section of a memorial page. This should be done by linking the children to the parents.
