Memorial 47108063
Hi Sherry,
I looked at a Scott Family sheet I had been given. It doesn't look like any of my Scotts married anyone from the Goldman family.
All the best, Pam

Annual Stroud, Marango Cemetery, Crawford, Indiana
I'm researching the Stroud family and was wondering why the typed birth and death dates differ from the hard-to-read dates on the gravestone and if there is something I don't know.

Many thanks.

Memorial 47108063
Hello Sherry, I saw your memorial #47108063 - Sarah Jane Stroud Barnett. I read the children's names listed. I have been researching Stephen Barnett, who married Elizabeth Emmons. According to various census records, he was born before Alexander and Sarah Barnett were married, so I have wondered if he was actually their son. I have been trying to research Stephen Barnett and this Barnett family due to a possible connection to my husband's great-great grandmother Sarah Ellen Barnett Scott. She and her husband George Scott settled near Alexander and Sarah Barnett and were also buried in Bruce Cemetery. What information indicated that Stephen was Alexander and Sarah Stroud Barnett's son? Do you know anyone knowledgeable of this family? Any insight you might have would be helpful. Either way, thank you for your time.

Hi, I have been researching my Sanders family this morning, and found your Stumps on Find-a-Grave.

I cannot be positive, but I have a Clabe S. Stump who married into my family (Marcella Estella Sanders). His brother Harold R. married the sister Melva Sanders. Am sending a couple of things I found as proof.

World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
Name: Clabe S Stump; Age: 23
City: Toledo; County: Lucas; State: Ohio
Birthplace: Illinois; U S A
Birth Date:1 Jul 1893; Race:Caucasian(White)
FHL Roll Number: 1851198; DraftBoard: 2
Occupation: Assembler,? Overland,Toledo,Ohio
Nearest Relative: married

If you look at the 1920 census yourself, it does say STUMP and not STUNIPE.

1920 Toledo Ward 4, Lucas County, Ohio Census
Name: De Witt Sanders
Age: 40; Birth Year: abt 1880; Birthplace: Ohio
Race: White; Gender: Male; Relation to Head of House: Head
Marital Status: Married;
Spouse's Name: Luella Sanders
Father's Birthplace: Pennsylvania;
Mother's Birthplace: Indiana
Household Members: Name Age
De Witt Sanders 40, Hanger at auto factory
Luella Sanders 40, Inspector at auto factory
Melva Stunipe 23, ? motor at auto factory
Clabe Stunipe 25, Assembler at auto factory
Marcella Stunipe 22, Instructor at auto factory
Harold Stunipe 22, Machinist at auto factory

Now my next question is that on the 1930 census, Melva is already a widow, and I found on the internet that Clabe died 10 Sep 1926 in Lucas County, and not 1954 as you have on Find-a-Grave. Does he have a headstone and does it read 1954?. Thanks, Barb

Carrie for Charles E. Tatem
RE: Rev. Robert Wiley & wife Elizabeth A. Gorrell

I'm Carrie, Charlies daughter & will be doing my best to keep up with Dad's work. I'm still learning about all that he did & the information that he had. It's a lot to gather in organize.

I'm not sure that I can help with your question at the moment, but would like to keep in touch & exchange info as we can.

I regret to inform you that my father passed in Feb 2011. He had been sick for several months.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. From the pieces I dug around and could really see anything, just look like pieces of the other stones, they did not have any writing on them. So my guess is if she had a stone her's is really sunk in the ground. My husband and I poked around alittle and never hit anything but that don't mean anything. She may not be buried in that exact location with the ground moving and all. It could have moved alot if it is under ground. I am sorry I was not much help with Mazilla. And again sorry it took me so long to answer.

I just might take you up on that when I have more info. A large majority of my family lived in Black Jack, Jarvis Twp, Madison County, Illinois. I have two missing great grandfathers that lived in that exact area and I have yet to find when they died and where they are buried!
Thank you, Carol

Margaret Davis
Hi. My name is Howard. Margaret Davis was my great Aunt. My grandmother is buried right next to her; however, I think both Margaret and my grandmother are in unmarked graves. If you look next to them, there should be a William Osborn. He was Margaret's first husband. Mt. Hope was having some problems a couple of years back. Is it under new management? I have to get my grandmother a stone.

Well I did not ask I got it uncovered enough to read alittle bit of it. It was I think a Lewis Mitchell, all I could get uncovered was the 10th of 1877, that matches his date, I think it was a Lewis I added the stone for you to look at if ya don't like it let me know I will try and get a better one. I am still going to ask them though. The guy I need to ask is hard to catch. He transcribes the cemeteries. Never fails everytime I go to Oblong he is not there. I won't give up though.

Beside Henry's stone I can see the coener of a stone buried, I half to get permission from the cemetery board before I dig it up. It is probably just got a layer of grass on it. Charles's was half exposed so I just kicked the grass away from it the best I could to get a picture. Vance's stone was laying face down so I picked it up and leaned it against another stone. I want to make sure I get permission first because some families are particular about that. All I know is if that were my family I would want to know where they are buried. Also I don't know that that would be row 53, when you come through the first gate, they are the second row from pull in pretty close to the the little mausoleum on your right. I will still try to get permission to see who that stone is and will let ya know.

I found your Alexandor Mitchell tombstone could not find Mazilla, also loaded Henry and Charles stones. Charles stone is pretty much buried I uncovered it enough to make alittle out. I will continue to look for Mitchells. Also need to get permission from Oblong cemetery board to pull a stone out of dirt. Will let you know if I find Mazilla

Howard and Sherry,

Thank you so much for taking the photo of my great-grandfather and great grand-mother's tombstone. I live about 4 hours away from where he is buried, and I am not sure when I would have been able to make a trip to try to find it. I really appreciate your help.
