RE: James Clinton
Yes he did, and I think I have those CW records. I had forgotten you did that type of research! I am sorry to be so late in getting this to you. Also...he never married, you might want to add that to his bio

RE: Amanda Carter

I am not asking anything about this person, but I need your help in trying to get another new cemetery added to find a grave.

I have been sent some pictures of some grave that are located on private property, and they were referred to as the three Gilbert Stage Graves.

Now, is there any possible way that we can get a cemetery made for them so that we can add them to find a grave.

I don't know who else to ask. Oh, the graves are around Artesia. Will be looking forward to hearing from you.

RE: John Riley Brown
As far as I know he did not. You would think he would have.

He had a brother, Elias R. Brown, that served and he joined in Nacogdoches County, and that is where the family lived. I have never found a record that would fit him. Family information never mentioned that he was in the CW

RE: Joseph Wimberly
No problem. I'm sure it was a simple oversight. I prefer to notify the original creator, just in case the new memorial has new information (family links, photos, etc.) that can be moved over to the original memorial.

more re Louis Fahrlender
I saw Tracirose's message for you after I sent mine, and I think the birth record makes the 1875 date the clear "winner." I just tweaked the caption on the image of the 1900 census. - Jay

RE: Louis Fahrlender
Hi, apbr. I admire your diligence in trying to come up with the correct date of birth. Because "Louis" apparently was born in 1873 or 1875 (depending on which record you believe), my immediate thought when I saw your message was, "What does the 1880 census say?" Because the 1880 census is probably the public record created closest to his date of birth, deference would normally be given to it as the "next best thing to a birth certificate." But, as luck would have it, your message didn't mention the 1880 census. And, wouldn't you know, when I _did_ find the 1880 census record for the family in Hillsboro, it just complicated things. The father, listed as Leopold in the 1900 census, is listed as Lewis, age 36, in the 1880 census; it has to be the same man. And the child we're looking for, listed as "Louis" in 1900, is listed as Leopold, age 5, in 1880. [Adding to the family's musical chairs played with names, "Walter" in 1880 becomes "Joseph W." in 1900.]

My take on this is that one of two things happened -- either #1 the census taker in 1880 accidentally reversed the names of the father and son or #2 the son we're looking at was named for the father, and they were using "Louis" as an Anglicized substitute "Leopold." The latter seems unlikely, because Louis/Lewis would seem much more likely as a substitute for Ludwig. As luck would have it, although there are birth records for several of this son's siblings, there seems to be none for him.

As for the date of birth to use on the F.A.G. memorial, I'd give the usual deference to the earliest record (the 1880 census) and therefore use the March 1875 date of birth, but I'd explain the discrepancy (lots of luck doing that!) in the bio section so that other people don't have to retrace your steps. One more thing to note, just in case you haven't noticed: you said in the message you posted on my profile page that "for now" you were going with the 1875 date, but as I see the memorial at the moment, you have the 1873 date. Best of luck with this! - Jay

RE: Louis Fahrlender
You are welcome for the additional information I have provided. The proof I have for the birth is located on Family Search in the Birth/Probates records.
Here is the link....

The only issue is that the mothers name is transcribed as Hattie Custer and it should be Katie Custer. Also I show his father as Leopold Lewis Fahrlender born 17 Jun 1843 and died 24 Oct 1913.

I am hoping this is what you re looking for??? Let me know :o)
