Grave # 32325418


Are you related to this Giddeon King?
He is my first cousin 3X removed.

I would enjoy hearing from you if you are related.

Do you know when his spouse died and where she is buried?
Do you know if they had any children?

I was curious as to where you were able to get the information for Lola Belle Frontze (76557277). Her father (Jeremiah) was the brother of my GGG Grandmother (Mary Ann Frontz Wonsetler). I am always looking for new information sources as this family has been very difficult to trace. Thanks for your help!

Mildred Ruth Walker #32417094
Hi there. I recently found an obituary that I thought you may be interested in adding to the above memorial:

Mrs. Mildred Ruth Walker, 65, of 325 S. Fourth, died at 2:55 a.m. Thursday, January 1, 1976, at Pekin Memorial Hospital.
Her funeral will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at Bender Funeral Home, North Manchester, IN. Burial will be in Fairview Cemetery in IN.
There will be no local visitation. Abts Mortuary of Pekin, will handle local arrangements.
She was born June 5, 1910, at Elgin, IL, a daughter of the Rev. Virgil C. and Lucinda Pugh Finnell. She married Wayne Walker June 16, 1949, at Waterloo, Iowa.
Surviving are her husband; a son, Lee Allen, with the U.S. Army at Karlsruhe, Germany; two daughters, Mrs. Lynne Anne Milota, Hoffman Estates, and Mrs. Loretta Arlene Burgess, Sunnyvale, CA; four brothers, and four grandchildren.
Mrs. Walker, who lived in Pekin eight years, belonged to the Church of the Brethren, North Manchester, IN.
Hopes this helps you in your research.

Pictures of Byron C. Kennedy

I appreciate the interest you have taken in posting the pictures on my Uncle Byron Kennedy's "Find A Grave" site. However with the new pictures (which are very similar to the first one you posted) there are now 5 photos on the site, the max.allowed unless I want to be a sponsor. I have an obit for Byron that I save when he passed in 1989 that I would like to post. Would you kindly remove one of the Butler pictures so that I may post the obituary? Thanks.

Ft. Wayne,IN

PS: If you go to the patriarch and matriarch's site (Charles O. and Emma Kennedy), you will see a picture of the children from the early 1920's including my handsome Uncle Byron). I need to get my mother onto the "Memories" link. Her name is Ruby Kennedy Evans and she is buried in No. Manchester (Oaklawn?) along with my dad, Charles H. Evans.

Byron Kennedy

It has been some time since I accessed "Find a Grave" and my Kennedy ancestors. Thanks for posting the picture of my uncle Byron C. Kennedy. Where did you find it? I was not aware that he even attended Butler U. I posted a picture I had of him and some information. I am also going to check his obituary and make sure the info and dates are accurate, Thanks again.

Great great Grandpa Solomon Stull
Hello, I am William Miller I was born in St. Johns Michigan. My mother Alice Miller was the daughter of Frank Stull son of Samuel. Samuel was the son of Solomon Stull. I have quite a bit on the Stull, Speyde family. I ran into Dawn a couple of years ago by email but was too busy to get back to her. My kids and other family members wants to know more about the family. Maybe we can trade information? I have what I think is the only photo of Solomon and other photos that are not identified. Maybe we can start with Alice. My mother was named after her Aunt Alice who supposedly lived in Ontario, Canada. This stuff gets kind of confusing for me. If any of the family members wants to contact me, please do so. Just email me at Take care Bill

Gwendolyn Pike Harting's husband
Her # is 32301376 and she is in Oswego Cemetery. I'm hoping you can help me find out if her husband is now with her. His name: Clayton Byron "C. Byron" Harting, b. 14 Dec 1911; d. 10 Aug 2011. An unsourced note on has Oswego Cemetery as his burial place, which makes sense since his wife is there. I have not been able to find an obit for further verification. He remarried in 1981 to Mary Elizabeth Plumb. Suggestions? Thanks. Donna

Thank you for posting this memorial. Is it possible that this person was married once to Beaton B. Morris? If so, she is a member of my family from Arkansas.

Thanks so much!! Now if I can just get the connection to all of them made!! I've looked for my ancestors for years & I thought for sure it would all come together when I joined Ancestry, but I have found absolutely ZERO on my Halderman ancestors that I didn't already know & that isn't much!
