re: PS
And YOU made the memorial for Gordon - so it was YOU that did send me there. W/o the memorial, his cousin would have never requested a picture. So there - it was all your doing anyway! Maybe I'm not as nuts, as I thought that I was. Hugs!

re: forgive me - I'm nuts! LOL
It was the lady that sent me after the picture of the headstone for Gordon Martin that sent me there. I know that he and the other angels involved said, "Hey, I'll get my cousin to put out a photo request, and Kathy will answer it and rant and rave". LOL That is when I started seeing all your memorials . . so it was not your cousin. Forgive me!

RE: Riverside Cemetery
Thanks, Lady! I'm working at it and will continue. I totally agree with you about the funeral home markers. Perhaps a distant relative didn't realize that these people didn't have a marker and will get one. Let's pray so. Take care, dear heart . . and will be posting more pictures on "graves without a photo" at Riverside. I got all that I could and will get more, once they put those stones back down. God bless! And, Riverside owes you and cousin Gordon the debt of thanks. It was you guys that sent me there, yet I think there was a little help from God involved. Take care!

Riverside Cemetery
Thank you, dear heart! I went over there again today, and after my call to chewing out the city/county, you ought to see all the work that they are doing! I'm so proud! They are pulling up markers and leveling out sunken parts, and it is freshly mowed and has been kept up, as there is not tons of dead, long, mowed grass.

I hated bugging you about those edits but thought maybe you had spaced them out. I didn't even KNOW that there was a place to check for edits until this week. LOL And, Find A Grave has been really slow in processing things, I have noticed. So - thought it was one of those two things that might have been the problem.

You will be so proud, but I got most of the "photos needed" today. Some, the stones had been removed, and those temporary funeral home markers are there, so I didn't take the pictures of those. AND, my 4 yr old granddaughter and I walked the cemetery for about 2 hours snapping photos. I will check and see if the people that I took photos of their graves have memorials, and if they do not, I will make them. I WILL finish what you started. You did such a great thing in starting that. That cemetery really needed a friend. Now, you have passed the baton, and I will try my best to finish it up. So many graves are IMPOSSIBLE to find. I found several right up by the road that are COMPLETELY covered with grass. My hands were filthy, when I got home from brushing off mud and such. I will post the pictures of the photo requests soon.

Take care ... and thank you again for all! I know that those folks all appreciate your hard work. God bless!

George Dixon (Billings, MT)
You left a virtual flower--perhaps you have a connection with him. Do you know if he is the same George Dixon (born in Maine) who served in the Maine 1st Heavy Artillery, the Maine 3rd Infantry & the Maine 17th Infantry (all Civil War)? I've tracked him to Billings.

RE: Riverside
You are so welcome for the pictures! And, I will "pick up the baton" and try to finish Riverside. I've decided to make that cemetery my project. I will call the city this AM about the condition of that place. It is disgraceful! AND, Memorial Day is this week end too. There were a few "pictures needed" on that site, but I can find NO RECORD of them even being buried there. I have searched the city's data base for the cemetery and looked through the entire lists numerous times trying to find the missing ones with no luck. I called a funeral home yesterday that had handled one lady's funeral, and he said that she was cremated, and that the ashes were to be put in the "Riverside Cremorium". I said, "What?" LOL I explained to him that there WAS NOT A CREMORIUM at Riverside. Perhaps the family discovered that, or they saw the condition of the cemetery and made other arrangements. Still, I cannot find where she is buried. I checked the other cemeteries listed on the county website too, and she is not there. But, I will search further and try to find the pictures of the rest. I am sorry that you moved away, as I think we'd be a good team to get all the cemetery occupants listed on Find A Grave. There are so many babies over there, and their graves are practically covered over with overgrowning grass. It's a shame. Thank you so much for doing those memorials for those folks! That truly was so nice and kind. I know that they would appreciate your effort. I have the list of the rest of them that need photos, and as soon as we dry out a bit, I will go over and try to get them. We had HAIL last night (golf ball size) and a lot of rain, so everything is really wet. Perhaps it cleaned up Riverside some. Let's hope. Take care, and God bless! Kathryn #48407627

RE: Brown's in Pa.
Hi Karen,
Thanks for your reply. I have met another Karen whose husband is related to Nancy Little and her son John, she's from New Orleans. I take it you're not that Karen?

You do know that Nancy's son John was not Charles S. Brown's son. I have never found any adoption record for him either. I have only heard his father's last name was Streams. But he did go on to have a very large family all named Brown and unrelated to Charles'family.

I stick mostly to my blood lines and very rarely go off on unrelated lines, but if you have any info on John's father I'd appreciate it.

Hi Karen,
Were you aware that Whilemina Schweir and her brother and father arrived from Germany on 16AUG1869 on the SS Main. A photo of this ship can be found on Bing. Her sister arrived later (1872)on the SS Ohio.

Elizabeth Sayre
Her burial was listed in the Cedar Twp. Cemetery book published by the Pocahontas County Historical Society (I think). Anyway, I know I got her burial out of that book.

I don't know if I can find my copy of this book, but if I can I will send you the page on which she is listed.

Dennis Rose
Wells and Acsa Cunningham
Hi Karen, Thanks for the additional information. I knew two of the children, Florence and Nora, Florence married Great Uncle Frank McPhilimy,and I knew their kids, Lorraine and Flossy, (didn't know Robert that well). If you would like to send me your email i will send the link and access code to my tribal pages family tree, I know i have at least one picture of Frank McPhilimy on there.
I have a picture of Wells and Acsa's headstone in my files and sought permission to use it on Find a Grave but have not heard back yet from them. I can send that also to you if you want it.
Thank you again for the info, it is always appreciated. Denny

I'm not sure of the date of the photo. It is sometime in the 1950s. The other people in the photo are Nicholas Gjuka and Janette (Wood) Gjuka. Janette was Earl's sister. Janette and Nickolas are my great grandparents.

Thanks for the correction on her name. I will update my records. The name of her mother is also helpful,as I only had "Minnie".

You can see her on my tree along with her obituary here

Mary Miller
Hello Karen,

I would like to converse with you regarding Mary Miller - she is my maternal great-great aunt as well. Her mother, Caroline Stoll is my great-great grandmother. I would be most interested in exchanging genealogy information with you. I was actually up in Chicago this weekend and visited the grave site. My mother and Mary's daughter, Alice, were very close.

Paul Davis
Frank Eisenhutt
Karen, it's nice to see a person like Frank has a memorial as he sounds like a possibly lonely man. His death should be listed as 25 Nov, not Oct, based on the obituary you quoted... (the paper came out on Monday, 26 Nov, and the funeral was to be held on Wednesday, which would have been 28 Nov...)

His family is recorded among the German pioneer families of Lake County, Indiana.
Thanks, Paul Davis (columnist for the Northwest Indiana Gen. Socy.)

Mary Stoll Miller
Hi Karen,

Mary Stoll Miller is the daughter of Adam and Caroline Holbrook Stoll, who are my great-great grandparents. I knew Mary's daughter, Alice, very well and corresponded with her until her death. My cousin and I have been working on the Stoll family so I am thrilled to find a "live" relative. I would be most interested in knowing any information that you may have about the family; espectially pictures, news articles, obits, etc.

Thanks, Ruth

Karen, are you the person that says you are related to John Uhrhammer? I am his great grandson and my mother (his grandaughter) is still alive at 98 yrs old. Mildred M.Hornof is her maiden name. Her mother was Elizabeth, daughter of John and Mary Uhrhammer.

John Milton Little Brown
Hi Karen,
I'd be glad to send you an outline descendant tree on John Milton's family line.
It's too large to post here, can I email it to you? Will need an email addy.

Added by Jill on Dec 29, 2009 11:44 PM

oops hit the wrong button too soon...
Charles didn't marry Nancy Little until after 1864. Charles' second wife Elizabeth Thomas died 01 Jul 1864. He had four more children with her, 2 died in infancy.

From what I have come to understand, decendants I've come across of John Milton didn't know Charles was not their ancestor. I have not found that John Milton was adopted by Charles. I would assume at that time Charles allowed Nancy to use the surname Brown for her son.

With first wife Jane Kirk my gg-grandmother Charles had 6 living children, the fourth child was named JOHN Alexander, my g-grandfather.

I have much info on Charles lines including John Milton's line and his children. I'd be glad to send it via email if you want.

Hope this helps, any other questions please just ask.

Charles Brown & John Milton Little Brown
Hi Karen,

John Milton Little Brown is not the son of Charles Brown and Nancy Little. He is Nancy Little's son with a man named "Unknown" Streams.
Mr. Streams died before they could marry, and when John Milton was still a very young infant.
