Mary Heath Spear

the link above is for Hancock Cemetery in Quincy. I see you had a photo request for Mary Heath Spear. Someone from the city has done a kind of find a grave for Hancock Cemetery. Marys stone must be one of the stones that cannot be read.

Col: David and Jane Nelson
Good afternoon
Jane Milligan Nelson was my 5th Great Grandmother. I would like your permission to use Col David and his wife Jane head stones on my tree. And the story you wrote about the Col was amazing and gives a insight into some of are history back then.

Thank you

William Abraham McDonell
I am a good friend of Father Duncan (Don) McDonell. We went to All Souls Grade School in Alhambra, CA and graduated from Alhambra High in 1949, after attending Cathedral High in L.A. His mother Laura and father William (Bill) McDonell were wonderful people. We all remained good friends until they all died. I remember Duncan (Don) telling of riding from Alhambra in the back of an open rumble seat in their car to visit Minnesota. He said he had to keep a blanket over his head a lot of the time as it got pretty windy and cold back there. Thanks for putting them in Find-A-Grave.

Marlyin Alice Rogers
Hi Dick:

I'm not sure if the headstone has a typo or if she really did spell her name Marlyin Alice Rogers versus Maryln Alice Rogers.

Your choice,

RE: William Winton Wall
There is a discrepancy between the header and the obituary. Birth: Luzerne County, PA (Obit: Phila., Phila. Co., PA); Death: Sep. 3 (Obit: Sep. 1).

RE: James & Almira Nelson
That is great to know the additional information. My husband came across another Nelson grave but was not the one for James or Almira. I will definitely look for the others next visit there and see what I can find.

RE: James & Almira Nelson
Dick, I will always keep them on my list whenever I visit that cemetery if for whatever reason I have missed them. I know there have been other volunteers that have been there recently or between my visits and it seems they have not had luck either. If I can find a way to contact the cemetery association next visit, I will ask for you and let you know. I don't live close to that cemetery but do frequent that area several times a year so I like to go and visit it. I hope you have a wonderful day.

I shot some others that you might want. The grass was more than a foot there so I'll try and get back there later on. It would to have more info the others you have requested as some of the names are very hard to read, however some of the dates are readable-Brent.

I did not see a stone for Anne Marie Nelson with the others in the Galvin plot. I did add memorials for Edward T. White who was buried in the Galvin plot, as well as Edward and Anna Galvin Norris
Incidently, Lynn Nelson was not in the Galvin plot, but several rows away in the same general area. John Galvin Nelson was in the Galvin plot however.
If I see it, I'll add a photo.

Teena Betourney
Mountain View in Orwell
I went to Mountain View in Orwell with the intention of finding the grave stones you requested. I was interested to see what I would find, since I am a direct relative of Higgins from the Orwell, Sudbury, and Rutland area. Have not made any connection yet, though. My 3rd great grandfather was a Bernard T Higgins. Anyway, I found the graves and also found right in a row with the three you requested were: Martha, Charles, Orpha J, James, and Ichabod (son of Ichabod). There was already information on this site for Martha, Charles, and Orpha without photos, so I added the photos for them as well. I also added the information and pictures for James and Ichabod (the son).

I see I had Herbert down - I corrected that - it now reads Hubert. I enjoy canvasing cemeteries - peaceful, quiet, you see some unique stones.

RE: Noble/shepard
You'r very welcome. I enjoyed searching for the gravestones. I found that the limestone and marble gravestones have worn down with the weather , some to the point that they are unreadable. The brownstone markers have held up well. This is a very old cemetery with names that are well known in this area.

No problem! Jane's brother Alexander (aqnd his wife Eleanor)are my gr-gr-gr-gr- grandparents. Jane and Alexander's father, John Milligan, Esq., is located at the same cemetery, along with his wife, Mary.

Wanted to let you know that I have added a wide view of the Hartshorn-Russell family plot to the memorial page of Frank Hartshorn. Sadly, there is no individual stone there marking him.

Also, I wanted to let you know, that the cemetery here is doing a history walk in September this year. One of the eight people that will be represented is Betsy Hartshorn. The little snippet about her in the email from the cemetery states that she was the first milliner in Mason City, whose mother dressed the newly born infant, George Custer.
