Hi Mark,

How are you related to Wilbur and Mary Persons? They are my 3rd great grandparents. Their son Milo is my great great grandfather.

I notice you have put in several Babcocks in the Whitefish Montana cemetery. These are all duplicates of much earlier memorials, just that the name was misspelled in the originals. You might want to share your information and get the originals fixed rather than duplicate. Thanks Penny

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?

Phineas Persons

I could not find Phineas at East Village Cemetery in East Montpelier, VT. His bio says he was buried on a farm at Horn Of The Moon. There is a Horn of the Moon road north of the center of Montpelier off Route 12 near Wrightsville Reservoir.

Persons/Pearsons in Plainfield

In case you didn't see, when photographing Amos Persons I added memorials for Mary E. Pearsons, John L. Pearsons and Abigail Persons at Plainfield Village Cemetery. Let me know if you want any transferred to you.

Amos Persons

I just fulfilled your request for a photo for A. Persons in Plainfield VT. I noticed that the stone says Pearsons not Persons. I submitted an edit to change first name to Amos, but wasn't sure about the last name. Maybe the stone is correct and maybe it isn't.

John Anderson
This gentleman, who is a family member should not have had a memorial as he was still living. Anyway, I requested that the other person that had posted the memorial as well as a photo remove the photo to allow one with complete information to be posted. I would appreciate it if you would do the same. If you are in that area, you could get another photo when the info is added. John died on June 16, 2014 in Rocky Ford and will be buried on Friday June 20. Thank you so much for your help.

Hi, While updating the Maple Hill cemetery in Cadillac, I found Josie Pangborn buried here too. Her husband Charles is in the same row as she although they are not side by side. There is one for Charles (as someone took the photo already). I see you show a stone for her in this cemetery too. So not sure which location she is actually buried in, or even if there is a stone located in Maple Hill or not. I have entered her in, so if you put in a photo request, then someone should be able to get the answer. Thank you. Terry

Costello Headstone
Hi Mark - Check out Mary Costello's headstone in the Merrill cemetery. Saw this when I was looking for photo requests and recognized the last name. Could this be Anna's mother? Sheryl

Persons Headstone Requests
Hi Mark - I did a little more digging regarding the Persons headstone photos you requested. I found a "Juli Person", "wife of Orrin", "died 6-14-1885" in Block 25 ... I think she may be your July Persons. Will go in search of her soon. Maybe Ida and Infant will be in the same area. Sheryl

Wm. Clay
I did not see William's name in the cemetery record, just Annie M. Clay. The plot is large enough for him to be buried in her plot, but there is no marker or stone. Any suggestions you would like me to pursue?

RE: Mary Persons
Hi Mark,

I still wish you would take down the spouse link, because it isn't correct. He was cheating on his wife with her. That doesn't make them common law marriage. He was still married to his wife, who outlived him and is in his will as well, and you can't be married to two people at once. On your page you describe yourself as sticking to facts and I just think you are totally going against your own principles here. This is meant as no disrespect towards you. You have done wonderful genealogical work. However, listing Mary Persons as Jones Ordway's wife is so wrong.

I will go to the cemetery as soon as the snow has melted. More coming tomorrow so I am hoping spring will be here soon.

jones ordway
Though Mary Persons was Jones Ordway's mistress and companion, she was not his spouse. It would be better to not list it that way, since its not really true. Just letting you know, because I have people writing to me questioning it and I can't really blame them. I don't agree with listing her as his spouse either.

Mary Persons
Hi Mark, I am the person who created the memorial for Mary Persons, mistress of Jones Ordway. I have had some people writing to me stating that Mary Person was not the spouse of Jones Ordway, and they are correct, as Jones and Mary were never married. I didn't create that family link though, so I can't change it.
