Hi, Celeste -- On Feb. 22 and on March 22, I sent you SAC Edit email messages re: Irene, since I have her obituary, along with several edits to make to her memorial. Maybe these messages didn't arrive in your email. I submitted edits to you on Irene's children, which you accepted. Please consider transferring Irene to me to maintain. If you prefer not to transfer her memorial to me, please reply letting me know, and I'll send her obit and other edits to you. Thanks for your consideration.

Mina Lucas

I saw you are the administrator for the memorial of Mina Lucas as well as researching the Lucas surname and I was just curious how you were related to her. She was my Great Great Aunt, the older sister of my Great Grandmother, Nettie Curtis Harbaugh.
Also, I was going through some old photos from my Grandpa's side of the family on Christmas Day and I found a photo of Mina taken on her 99th Birthday. I made sure to scan and add that to her memorial.

I wanted to thank you for granting me permission to use your photos in my family tree. I haven't been on here a lot this summer, thus, I am slow to reply but thank you very much for your work and generosity! Eva

Celeste, I am writing to ask permission to use any photos of my family and ancestors as I work on my own family tree and genealogy. Would you please consider my request and let me know? And thank you! Eva

RE: Lingham headstone

Yes, Ballard, DeWitte, and Russell are all middle names. I know for sure that Walter and Carl were siblings, and I assume that Florence was the sibling I was searching for. I would truly appreciate it if you could transfer this to me as Walter Lingham is my great grandfather.

Lingham headstone
Celeste, I was wondering if you could clarify something for me. You photographed a headstone with the names Florence Russell, Walter Ballard, and Carlous Dewitte all on one side. You also posted a photograph of the headstone: family name Lingham at the top with the names Isaac Ballard and Emma Francis below. I was wondering if these names are all on the front and back of the same headstone. The headstone shapes are the same in both photos, and I also know it would make sense since I know for sure that Walter and Carl were sons of Isaac and Emma. Thanks, Carolyn

RE: James Alcorn
Celeste, If James is not a relative I would be glad to take care of the Memorial. He was my G-grandfather.
Thank You, Bill Jordan

James Alcorn
Celeste, I linked James Alcorn (your 41336376) to my tree. His first wife was Elizabeth Fromer, my great grandmother. I then noticed that Find A Grave linked my grandmother to James as a daughter. I hope this is not a problem.

If it maybe there is a way to share the site and have the names listed that each one of want. Plase let me know your thoughts on this.

An Aunt of David & Daniel Gates
I've come across an aunt of David and Daniel Gates buried not far from where I currently live. She was a half-sister of their mother. If you'd like to take a look at what I've found there is a link to her memorial on Daniel Gates's page. Her name was Maria Ursula Nuszbaum Uhl.

Dear celeste,

Thanks so much for the transfer of Eliza P. Bruner Smith to me. I now have linked seven of Charles Bruner's ten children to him. Still missing Thomas Greenleaf Bruner, Martha Bruner Sullivan Anderson; and Sarah Bruner Brinley, as I don't know where they are buried.

more Cushmans
Hi, I have found Velma Cushman and Harry Cushman. Would you like to add these two to your request? I did add Dr. Cushman's stone's picture to his memorial.

Please let me know!

Happy researching!!

RE: Thomas Gates
Thanks again, Celeste. If Thomas was a first cousin of your line then I'm assuming you're descended from David Gates, brother of Daniel William Gates. Have you seen their lineage in the Ortsippenbuch for Ichenheim, Baden, that takes the family into the 1600s? Also have you tracked Daniel, David, and their father Jacob in their movement in Northern Kentucky and Hamilton Co., OH? After Anna Maria Huerster's death Jacob remarried the widowed Elizabeth Krick. If you're descended from David instead of Daniel, may I ask for the maintenance of Daniel? I have a lot I can add to his listing. Let me know what you're interested in on the early Gates family, so we can share information on them.

RE: Houldson
You are welcome!! I am related to the Houldson through my grandmother. Her father was George. When my grandmother was alive she had taken me to the cemeteries that the Houldson's were at that she knew of. So I added a few of them, but still working on adding the rest.

RE: Jesse and Mary Davis
Thank you again. Could you also send me Martin L. Davis and William M. Davis. They were the sons of McHenry Davis.

Jesse and Mary Davis
I would like to thank you for adding Jesse and Mary Davis to Moravian Cemetery. They are my ggg grandparents. I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer them to me, so that I can add them to the rest of the family. By the way, Mary's maiden name was Jones. Thank you so much.
