Loving family in Rock Creek Cemetery
I uploaded the photos for the loving family in Rock Creek.

I wanted to let you know that there was a stone for Sadie L Hamner (1867-1952) in that lot also. I created a memorial # 144244257. And Sarah L. Loving (1826-1904) # 144244120.

But, I don't know how they fit into your tree.

Have a great day!

I am very interested in learning more about the Chatfield's. Oliver Chatfield was my 5th Great Grandfather and Eli my 4th Great Grand Uncle. If you are able to provide me more information contact me at

Although you don't mention Richardson in your list of families, you supplied the picture on this memorial. I don't know of a connection to this particular group but am looking at interesting Richardsons in hope of learning the ancestry of my husband's g-g grandfather Jeremiah Willson/Wilson who was b. abt 1819 in TN, married abt 1849 in Monroe Co IND, moved to Mahaska Co IA; then never found him again after his wife & children moved to Morgan Co MO- family story is he died in TX. His father was likely Moses Willson, b. VA;I'm sure a Richardson family in MO are related but no proof- they came thru Hart Co KY. If you can help me or I can help you or you know of someone who is interested, please contact me.

Believe I've made a reasonable case connecting your New Haven CT Atwater-Olmstead line to my Rootsweb World Connect DB "greengiant-2". Analysis indicates William Olmstead Atwater married a Californian, Ann E Eckfeldt, and they were in the Hawaiian Islands in the 1890's. The family moved back to California when he died there.

RE: John Lee Mandary
Cora has the same birth year as Rosa - I'm wondering if they are one and the same person. There is no 1890 Census when you need it. The two family trees that show Cora are undocumented.

If not there is one more Infant Death Grave, in addition to the one for John of 1905-1905 next to the father's grave, John Lee Mandery. Your thoughts? I can defer to whatever documentation you have.

Quick Heads Up FYI
I have located all of the remaining children of John Lee Mandery and sent edits to the managing Find A Grave user with the correct mother you have defined. Hopefully they will respond in a timely manner for you. I even located the infant grave of John near his parents.

Also ,,,,, I read your Profile page - don't be concerned about the "Burial Unknown" memorials you have. These memorials no longer come up in user or member searches - I have a few too.The Find A Grave search engine only works on memorials designated in a cemetery. The only way you can find them is if you link them to a memorial that has a designated cemetery or if they read your list of memorials that you manage.

All the best to you and yours;

RE: Annie McIlravy
I just sent you her obit...are you related? Eliza does not appear in the 1900 Census, so I believe she died before then...she would account for the other daughter who died in infancy, mentioned in the obit...they would have been in Seward Co at that time - unfortunately, no McIlravys in Seward Co on Find A Grave...Annie states that she had 7 children, 4 alive, so that would also support that Eliza d.<1900... :( k

Clarence & Mack Chatfield
I've tried to fulfill your photo requests at White Chapel Cemetery today, but I could only find Mack and Clarence. Alton and James could not be found. There are immediate empty areas of land surrounding their plots, but no grave markers for James nor Alton. I am sorry for the less than stellar photos; At this time in Michigan, the wintery conditions aren't great for taking photos. 50% of most gravers markers were covered with dead leaves or completely covered with snow & ice. (I had to use my car snow brush to uncover and find your memorials). I tried my best... Best wishes and Happy New Year!

RE: Temperance Ruth Cannon
Hello Catherine,
I did look up the original "We Are the Chosen" but I like your version better. I will keep looking for a reference to Temperance Ruth now that I know it's there somewhere. She was a first cousin, 3x removed. The other girl I mentioned to you was only 10, the little sister of a great-great grandmother.
Happy searching!

Temperance Ruth Cannon
Hello Catherine,
I intended to sent this message to ask if you could provide any details about the note on Temperance Ruth's page that she "burned to death". This is the second time I've come across a young girl in my family who burned to death and so I wonder about the circumstances here.
As importantly, or maybe more so, I just read your notes on your Find A Grave contributor page and find that I feel the same way about finding my ancestors. So, may I borrow/copy your "Calling" note; I'd like to put it on my Facebook page for my family & friends (my page is private to family/friends, not public). And finally, may I "friend" you on Find A Grave?
My families are Cannon/Morrow/Harris/Kamm/Wilkinson for a start.
Kay "EntiatKay"

RE: Old South Burying Ground William & Rebecca Chamberlain
A lot of people assume where people are buried and just "plop" them where they think they should be. Just because they died in the town does not always mean they are buried there. Without a source it does not mean anything. I am looking at the Billerica Vital Records pre-1850 and yes it says William died in Billerica, but no where does it say he was buried in that cemetery. It also states that Rebecca died "in a prison in Cambridge". It does not say she is buried here in Billerica either. If they were buried in that cemetery then there would be a code (GR1), in the VRs, next to their names saying they were there.

Yes these are very old headstones and they may no longer be standing, however, there are others who died in the early 1700s who are listed in this book as being buried there. Headstones have been found and photographed for them. I'm sorry to say this but unless, Michael Smith, can come up with some kind of source for this information they are considered to be plopped in the cemetery.

RE: Beatrice and Arlo Chamberlain
Beatrice L. Chamberlain Age 87, died Thursday, March 13, 2008 in Cheboygan, MI. Beatrice was formerly of Lansing and longtime employee of Michigan State University. Her husband Arlo preceded her in death in 1975. Graveside services will be Wednesday, March 19, 2008 in Evergreen Cemetery at 11:00 a.m.

Published in Lansing State Journal on Mar. 15, 2008

It's pretty short and doesn't mention anything about family. I know she had only one daughter, but I believe there were three grandsons and some great grandchildren. Maybe you know about that.

Beatrice and Arlo Chamberlain
I got to thinking about Bea this evening, and found a very short obit for her in the Lansing State Journal. I added the death date listed there through the edit button. When our boys were very young we lived next to Bea and Arlo for a short time. That was on N. Fairview in Lansing, MI. Her husband passed away while we were there. After we all moved, I kept in touch with her for a few years. They were very nice people and good neighbors. Just wanted to share that.

Obituaries ...
You posted: "I've thought about this: obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told how the person died." - which is why some of us spend out time reading old, faint, but RICH in detail microfilm newspaper recordations of a persons' life!

Cemetery with two names

If you check this link you will see this cemetery has two names and I am sure there will be duplicate postings in both.

Thank you for the Thanksgiving wishes, and the same to you.

John Henry Wildman's last name was later changed to John Henry Varner after the death of his father. Bertha married the best man "Varner" after the death of her husband John Henry Wildman.

Thank you so much!
