Hello Sam, thanks for sharing information on the family online for all to use.

Do you have a picture of Cecil, his wife Betty Jean Terrill and family you could scan and e-mail to me at: I'd love to add it to my genealogy. Thanks again for all your hard work.

RE: Thoger Jensen
I have discovered the reason for the problem.

Originally Denmark had 24 counties. By 1970 they were down to 14 and the number fluctuated over the next 30 years. In 2007 they changed to the use of 5 Municipal regions, eliminating the counties. The municipalities are the names available on Findagrave.

What is really frustrating is that I could not find any website with a list that could help with the conversion of old birth locations from one system to the other. It seems that there should be such a thing and it may exist but I could not find it.

I think for the time being I should leave his birth location as Denmark. I will add the original locations you sent to his bio section.

RE: Thoger Jensen
Thank you for the correction. I find adding locations in Denmark and Sweden daunting. The names you have sent are not among the options that Findagrave offers. This is usually the case. I rarely receive a Danish or Swedish location that fits what is available on Findagrave.

On Findagrave, after Denmark my choices are Hovedstaden, Midtjylland, Nordjylland, Sjaelland and Syddanmark. There is no Skanderborg. When I looked at each of the offered locations none of them offered anything close to Gjern. I will just leave it as Denmark unless you have a better solution.

RE: James Langley

Sam, I have always suspected the 1868 date to be incorrect and, like you, never found him on an 1860 Census. The Tohopeka Chapter of the D.A.R. is responsible for the monument and the dates. I am not related but am one of the Trustees for Mount Pisgah Cemetery and also set the marker in place in 1978. Anything that you can add supporting the 1853 death date I would like to add on the memorial page. Thanks for your message.

I found this by accident. I am related to some Alsups. I am also related to Thomas McRaven and some McDaniels. Not sure how but have been searching for a long time. I am related to Lou Caldwell Alsup that married William Alsup. They had a son Mack Alsup that married a Tinsley. They loved in McClure, Il. They had children. 2 sons lived in California. One just recently died. Buddy Alsup (don't remember his real name).
I know of an Alsup that goes to my church that married a girl from Russia. Would be interested in your comments.

Hiram Whitney Edit Question
Find A Grave Memorial# 55871017

Grave marker shows a birth year of 1833. Your edit it to change from 1833 to Nov. 10, 1834. Is that correct, the 1834 date? Or did you mean Nov. 10, 1833?

Let me know.

RE: Edward & Henry Heywood
I transferred Edward, Henry, their siblings, parents and child of Edward to you. I also sent you their father Benjamin's half brother Levi. Are you interested in more for Levi? I can transfer his wife and 2 children (all are in the same cemetery) as well as his infant brother and father (buried in a nearby cemetery). -Judi

Louisa Maria Leland Woodbury - 6962149
I sent an email to the person who has the memorial for Louisa Maria Leland and said the following:

Her full name is Louisa Maria Leland Maria with Leland being her maiden name. She was the daughter of Austin Leland and Ann Maria Johnson. She was born in Sutton, Massachusetts (Worcester County) and she died December 23, 1880 in Sutton. On June 1, 1871 in Sutton, Louisa married John Francis Woodbury who was born March 7, 1849 in Sutton and he died in 1891. He is buried in the same cemetery as Maria and I would appreciate it if you would link them. I would also appreciate it if you would add some of the other information above to her memorial and also link her to her father at 123476535. Her mother's grave has not yet been located. Thanks.
