RE: Pic of Harvey R Madden's monument
BTW, I also added an Edward Madden and a Maureen Madden to the Venice Memorial Gardens page.

RE: Pic of Harvey R Madden's monument

The Memorial Garden at the Epiphany Cathedral, where Pauline is interred, is rather small in area, and no monuments or markers are used. It is quite pretty tho. I did add a photo to Pauline's page that I already had of the Garden. I'll stop by Epiphany later today or this week and try to get a photo of her name which should be engraved on a nameplate and mounted on a plaque in the sanctuary. Some, but not all, also have an engraved brick in the Garden. I'll also check for a brick. Yes, it is odd that a spot for her was purchased at Venice Memorial Gardens, but she is at Epiphany.

RE: The West Family of Laramie, WY
I read your e-mail and I am a little confused by it. Victor is buried next to Mary Miner West. I don't know what the "WRT" in your message means. The person that created the memorials, created them for FindAGrave so all the people who were searching for loved ones could find them. He did not create any memorials that were already posted in FindAGrave. The picture he posted on all the memorials, was the one at the entry way of the cemetery at the time the work was done. He is like others who post pictures upon request of different sites. Now for Victor. Victor is buried where he is listed on FindAGrave. Victor does NOT have a stone. This is not rare. There are many graves which do not have stones. Someone has to purchase to have it placed on a grave site. I went back to the grave site and probed in the grass to see if maybe it was a small or flat one that grass had overgrown. I did not find one. I did go the library to look up his obituary in the newspaper. His obituary is in The Laramie Republican Boomerang of 2-21-1950, on pg 4 col 5. His middle name is Elsworth. He died on Saturday 2-18-1950, when his house caught fire and he did not get out of it in time. He was born at Perry Park, CO on 3-8-1888. He owned, with his brother Joseph, the Laramie Blacksmith Shop. His sister was Abbie Naginey. He was well respected in the community. I hope this information is helpful.

Heinrich Fauver
I'd like to suggest a few things to edit for Heinrich Fauver. His surname is actually Faber, it was anglicized when he and his sons Johann Heinrich and Frederick served in the American Revolution. His wife was Marie Elizabeth Faber (surname unknown) his children are Margaretha, born 1755, Anna Marie, born 1758, Johann Heinrich, born 1760, Fredrick, born 1762 and Johannes, born 1764. I can give you birth dates for all kids, I can not give you deaths, spouses and spouses date of birth and date of death, some info is missing. Thanks!

RE: Joseph Carlisle Barton
A lot of Dutch in both of my parents family trees.
Mom's family and some of dad's was Winthrop Fleet involved in the early colonization of CT, Long Island, NY and New Jersey.

I did not know my grandfather as he was killed by a train before I was born. I am the baby of the family.
My grandfather's marriage to Carrie Barton never came up.
Mom was not even aware Emby was married to anybody but my grandmother.
My oldest cousin was even misinformed that his first wife and their infant daughter had died in their first trip to Washington before 1898. That he had returned to Kentucky rather then being told they had gotten a divorce. The infant daughter and returning to Kentucky was most likely true but I have no way to verify it.
More later.

RE: Joseph Carlisle Barton
Be happy to wait for a few days but I will be gone for a short time after that.
At first when I looked at Ida Mae married to a much older man, it was about as clear as mud.
That is until I found her in the 1940 Cincinnati census listed as the mother of Daniel J Donnelly, born 1903. However her age is 10 years off saying she is 75 instead of 65.
Also in Cincinnati on his WW2 draft card is my Grandfather's half brother Maynard Ellsworth Centers listed as a barber, divorced a 2nd time living in a boarding house.
He was married 1897 to Ida's sister Ada, they divorced before 1920. Maynard and Ada remarried.
After 1940, I lost track of him.
Thanks for getting back to me.

Thank you for adding Joe and his wife Rachel.
I have them in my files but did not know where they went.
If you are related or even just want to know, I would be happy to share my information on the Barton family.
Thanks again

Thomas Frank Barton
He was my grandfather's brother-in-law. Everybody called him Frank. Nobody in the family living now knew his real first name was Thomas until I found "Son of T. F. and Ida Barton" on one of his children's headstones then later found him as Thomas in a census.
Mistakes happen and I have made a few honest ones.
Thanks for the corrected correction.

RE: Pix of Clyde and Myrtle S
Looks like Spring is coming early (unless winter sneaks another quick one in soon) - so I'll be back at the photo shooting soon, I hope!
Interesting factoid about Caledonia - I've always wondered where that came from. Indeed, there was a large population of Irish/Scottish that settled this area going way back - lots of names that start with Mc in the local cemeteries! Keep watching and hopefully I'll be finding the rest of your Schellengers soon. Steph

RE: Pix of Clyde and Myrtle S
Clyde and Myrtle were, indeed, right there in the Evergreen addition to the cemetery, near Harold. Still working on the location for Anderson and Elmiria. There are a lot of "sections" in Caledonia - Ranges 1 to 107 (with seven lots containing six graves each in each range), Evergreen, which is 100+ lots of 12 graves each, Roselawn, Sections A, B, C & D and Rosedale -
I have completed photographing B & D, and am almost done with C - A is next on my list and then I'll start on the Ranges - I figure by "mowing the rows" I'll eventually catch all the stones at least once, and then can fill in the blank spaces as they come up by heading to city hall and the record books.

RE: Visiting DE
The Dixon'S were a tough find. YOUR SIR NAME GAVE THEM TO ME. Look too the tip of the grave oblique. There is an S. The stone has on side for your family sir name on one side for Dixon but all 4 sides with the S. I also grew up in Dixon Illinois. This one is a weird set of words and circumstances and i found two extra Dixon's too!

Leslie Filemyr
Catharine Rush
Hi. I fulfilled several photo requests in Fernwood Cemetery a while ago. After finishing the photo requests, I also took photos of several random rows of headstones. Before I enter those random photos on Find A Grave, I research the people who are represented on each headstone in an attempt to find as much about the people as possible. Catharine Rush is one such memorial; she is not related to me. I have transferred her memorial to you, along with the other three memorials that I created for her family members.
Happy researching!

RE: Lou & Esther
I went back up the hill & through the pasture to get the picture for you... I dropped the camera and did not get the best of shots. I posted what I had but I will be getting something better for you. I just wanted you to know. I love doing this and will not stop until I am satisfied.

RE: William R Skellenger (1872-1928)


We photographed that cemetery this past weekend. So I had both of your William's, I just wish the last one would have been in better shape. The manager is a really nice guy, and usually takes care of the edits within a week. He also transfers when asked. There are several more Skellenger photos to put up, and not sure if all their memorials are up already.

RE: Oak Hill Cemetery, Hammond
Went to Oak Hill today. RRS is buried in section 9 which has practically no tombstones. There are no plot markers either. A rep at the cemetery walked it with me but she couldn't say with certainty which grave was his. She did say that Leslie is not listed as being buried there but that is not definitive. New management took over 3 years ago and they're still finding old records while trying to organize their offices. Leslie may pop up yet. I wish I could be more helpful.

I'll get over there one of these days and photograph RRS's grave. I don't think there will be a tombstone or it would have been photographed already. I'll ask around about Leslie while I'm at it. Talk to you soon.

Hi Mike,

I removed my edit so you may submit a new one with the info you have. We are always pleased to help solve a puzzle.

RE: Luella M
I am happy to help as much as I can. I am actually going back to the pasture tomorrow for the family marker for you. It was starting to get dark and it is about 170yards from the road and I actually had to climb under a barbed wire fence through the ditch, so I will be back in the daylight. I appreciate the message. I hope others will do this for me and I feel it right to help others find their family!!

RE: Robert Reed Skellenger
The burial cards I'm assigned (around 4000 S's) are for me to check against memorials which were made by volunteers walking cem and taking photos of all existing headstones. I'm finding only about 1/3 of them already online via the pictures. However am not marking most of these with 'no headstone' because (not having been in the cemetery)cannot be sure of that fact. I do feel most of those I'm entering do not have stones. A large number were destroyed or moved and lost while cemetery was in disrepair. And if the grounds were kept the way the cards were kept there is just no telling! If I were you I'd go ahead and put in a photo request because we do have a plot location.
