Emma Jane Wollas / Not Correct
Hi Wayne,
The correct wife for Cyrus Shaffer is Emma Jane McCoy. She is my 3x great grandmother and I have her death certificate. She died in Fremont County, Iowa. She became ill on the wagon train to Illinois. Her Children are:
Carrie Fenella Shaffer - died in 1880 / born 1877
Nettie Delila Shaffer - died may 6, 1966 / born 1879
Walter Ellsworth Shaffer - died 1963 / born 885.

All three children show Emma Jane McCoy as their birth mother with Ohio Birth Records.

Hi Wayne. You have a tombstone for Ralph Maranville and his wife. Do you know if he had any grandchildren from his daughter Lois Meites? If yes, are they alive? Thank you.

Ross Andrew Julliard
Your page for Ross Andrew Julliard gives his year of birth and death as 1891, but they are in fact 1981. Please correct these dates, because they upset the family of the deceased.

Re: Mary Edith Apple Anderson

I think you have confused the wife of Vernon Robert Anderson (1906-1974)with the wife of Vern Epperson Abbott (1909-1969).

Mary Edith Apple [# 52098363] (1906-1991) was the wife of Vern E. Abbott.

Vernon R. Anderson's wife was Eva Barnett (1906-1973)[#79838411]. Apparently someone entered Eva's name and a picture of the gravestone and now Vernon has two wives!

The confusion is understandable! Both couples are buried in Clarinda Cemetery, Page Co.,Iowa., they were born about the same year and 3 of them passed away with five years of each other.

I hope this helps! ;-)

I have sent you a few links to add parents or wife to memorials that are maintained by you and this was back in December 2013 and they have not been done.

Are you still active with your memorials?

It would be nice to have them updated with these family members.

Thank You and please let me know if you would like for me to resend them----maybe they just got overlooked by you.

Jacob Runyon Jr. #46114923
Wayne, Pam & I attempted to complete a photo request and was not able to find Jacob Runyon in the internment records for Grove Hill cemetery, Morrison, IL. Please check your record and see if perhaps you added him to Grove Hill by error.
Thanks, Dave Jindrich

Ward Cemetery
In case you were wondering, the source on those edits I have put in (mainly plot numbers) -- is the book "Our People And Where They Rest: A Visit to 104 Old Cemeteries in Eastern Oklahoma," James W. Tyner, Maxine Tyner and Alice Tyner Timmons, American Indian Institute, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK. 1970-1985, (Library of Congress No. QE99-C5-T97) There wasn't a place for me to put that in the edit form.

Thanks for all your help! Best wishes.

Please contact me anytime at
Thank you,

Hi. I was just noticing, on the stone for Samuel and Elizabeth Hawk it has listed (Elva) 1879 - 1898. Could this be Alva? Just thought I would check. Thanks, Tracy Boler

James Runion
James is my grandfather on my Mother's side of the family. I would be interested in seeing any history you have past James' mother Effie (the farthest back in the family I've ever known). I haven't visited my "gran's" grave since I was a teenager, it's nice to be able to see it on here. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks so much! It is greatly appreciated. Looking forwarding to exchanging family information in the near future!!
