RE: Lola Maydew Palmer Soapes
It came off of Ancestry. I just check it again and they now have a different Lola as her last name. Iwish when they post pictures there they would post the match and not what they think fits the name. If you don't know the person you are at the mercy of those who may be incorrect. So consider it pulled. I added the correct one to her page on geni.. I can see the likeness of Grandma or Aunt Jessie in her face. the picture of Great Grandma Lockhart shows in all three of their faces. I have never seen a picture of Grandma Myrtle(Lockhart)Lehr when she was younger and I only saw her and Grandpa about two to three times before they died. I taught myself how to quilt like she and Aunt Ida did. I just wish I had had a chance to get to know her as much as I did my Mom's Mother and father. I can see her face in her oldest Granddaughter who is now in her 80's. Any's sorry for the mix up.

Antelope Valley Genealogical Society
Sam Gregory Baker

The obituary for Susan Mitchell Carpenter (mother-in-law of Sam) was in The Daily Colusa Sun, Thursday, December 26, 1907, page 4. It lists her daughter as 'Mrs. Sam Gregory Baker'.

Sorry, I am not related. My Boohers, Wooleys and Mitchells came from Missouri circa 1860's along with the Whites, Bakers, Carpenters and so on, and settled in Colusa County.

African Cemetery - Mound City
Hi - I'm working on a project to add maps to all Kansas cemeteries at Findagrave. Since you have added photos of grave markers from this cemetery -
- would you be able to provide exact directions to the cemetery? Thanks! ~ Chris

RE: Oxford Bend Cemetery
We do encourage all descendants to make a visit to Oxford Bend at least once a year. Any opportunity to chat with Mrs. Buell in a positive way will be another step toward a "new beginning". I hope you're aware that, while the Buels own the land surrounding the cemetery, the descendants are owners of the burial plots. This is what a Cemetery Association is all about. The Association can put a lock on a gate, can open the gate to the public, can work inside the fence at will. I hope to see a Cemetery Association for Oxford Bend some day.

Thanks Diane. I'm on the board of WCCPG.

RE: Oxford Bend Cemetery
Thanks, Diane. I will do that. We were at Oxford Bend last Sunday with Ann Skelton Deemer. She has Vernons there, and some others. We hope to be able to get out there and do some cleaning up, but we're being very cautious about that, so as not to offend or enrage the people who live nearby. I would like to talk to you about that but don't know how to contact you privately, or how to send my information privately.

I was in the cemetery today. I would like to post a description on the front page (in front of the map). May I do this, or are you the owner of this?

RE: Elizabeth Soapes Hendrix Bozarth
Well, I do appreciate it Diane. Bill Towles is my dad and I really pried to get every bit of old memory that I could get out of him. I found out a lot more about the last husband, Jefferson Davis Bozarth, after I had posted the memorial and I wanted to correct some of the stuff. Odd that the site did the merging. Yours must have been first so it defaulted to you. We will both benefit either way.

Today I went to add some information to my great-grandmother's memorial #68962520 and I couldn't because it said it had been merged with yours and you now control it. That was quite a surprise.

Obviously, I must have missed that there was already a memorial started for her and I started a new one, but considering that I wrote the bio and posted all of the pictures and the proper dates, it should probably be in my care.

Unless you are a closer relative than I am and have more information to post, would you consider transferring her memorial back to me?

RE: Minerva Johns Boling
Hi, Diane. I have to say I don't think this is the same man. This John is 10 years older than John P. Also, John P.'s father was born in Virginia, not Indiana.

I'm looking through records now to locate who he is and will let you know what I find. Thanks!

RE: Minerva Johns Boling
Thank you for the information. I was unable to find John in Reynolds, Missouri, on the 1880 census. Can you tell me exactly how he is listed? He is shown in Jackson Co., IN, in 1880, and I haven't found any evidence that he lived elsewhere.

Trammell graves
Diane, my husband & I are planning on going out to Smith Mountain today to take pictures of your Trammel requests. I noticed there are also Trammells buried there also, & a Margaret Trammel buried nearby. Would you be wanting to memorialize them too? I'm planning on taking photos of them all & if you do memorials, will you post requests so I can have the privilege of fulfilling the requests??? Thanks!
I absolutely adore your kitty picture! How on earth did you ever get one so young to sit still long enough for such a good shot? My kitten pictures are all pretty much a blur or at some awkward angle except for when they were asleep. Ha!

Hi Diane,
Walter Eugene Stanbrough is my 3rd cousin, 1x removed. There is a Eugene H Stanbrough in Find a Grave that may or may not be related - I have not found any links to him yet. Which Eugene did you mean?

Jerry Green
Viola McCollum
I am also into family trees. My name is Willie Gerald (Jerry) Green. I was wondering if you have any research on Viola McCollum daughter of John W. b. 1859 Tn. and Margaret Elizabeth Green McCollum b.1862 Ga. This family is part of mine and I know that there were 2 Margaret McCollum's in the same area at the same time. My Margaret is my ggggrandfathers sister. Their family had at least 7 Daughters, no boys that I can find. I can only guess at the ages. John W McCollum is the son of Enoch McMollum and Rachel Green, No Kin at this time.

Soapes markers
I was closing my windows down and looked at Frank and Mary's marker again and noticed that I was wrong in what I told you. Frank is on the left and Mary is on the right, which puts Frank in space 9 and Mary in space 8.

RE: Mary Soapes
Hello Diane,
I am documenting the locations of all graves at Woodlawn. I am noting the location of each grave and its location to the other graves around it. As in the photo of Mary and Fred's marker, Mary is on the left and Fred is on the right. The stone faces the East and visible from Woodlawn Drive. I suppose the marker could be engraved in reverse as to the actual placement of the deceased, but I am posting the actual way the stones are engraved, even if there are mistakes on them. When I first started this project I was just going to get everything photographed and posted to Find A Grave. But as I got deeper into the project I found that their records in some cases were incomplete or wrong or total missing. In visiting with Mike at the office he says that is the case. I have found, in some cases according to the records that someone is listed as being buried in one location, but their marker is in a totally different location.
