RE: Thomas Wilson
William Alexander Winsell a son of Adam Winsell and Sarah Curtner married Elisabeth Jane Wilson another child of Alexander Adair Wilson and Margaret Laughlin. I am a direct descendant of Adam Winsell through another son Lewis. I am gathering source documentation for my Winsell line and am sharing as much as I can with those touched by that line.

Thank you and I will pass on anything more I may find.

RE: Agnes Clevenger
You're welcome. But I actually got that information from the WA State Digital Archives. Sometimes one is lucky to find some information on people/relatives. Here's the link if you would like it. Sometimes you have to play around with the spelling of the names or just put last name and first initial or just last name etc. Take care.

John and Charlotte Bolsinger Memorials
Hello Dona,

I added memorials for John and Charlotte Bolsinger to Hampden Memorial Estates today. I photographed the headstones on May 4 2013. Then I found the memorial that you maintain for them at Bald Mountain Cemetery, also with a headstone photo. Do you know if they were reinterned?

RE: Minerva ? Balsinger Photo
We did not take notes. I can send the original photo of Minerva Balsinger if you want to blow it up, but it looks like "I." to me.

Jane (Jones) Roberts
Dear Dona:
It's been a while since we've been in touch but I wanted to let you know that I have found that Jane (Jones) Roberts died and was buried in California. I will be adding a memorial for her. I've been looking at some of the memorials you've made and you've done such a great job.
I'm curious about the information that her and Thomas had another daughter.
Would love your input on Jane's memorial, etc.
Hope all is well with you.

I have a picture of Velma A Fisher whom I suspect is your Ann, as the dates on the stone match. If you'd like to see it, my email address is and I'd be happy to send it to you to decide if she is the same as the one you're looking for.

RE: The Fishers
Oh yes ma'am I sure do.... lol...
There was some Selby's (any of them) in Oregon and also some McMahan's out there. I am not sure of the McMahan's names, but I am thinking it was Arthur McMahan who died June 18, 1928... He would be my top guy to lookup along with his family if you ever come across him, I would forever be in your debt.

Hi Dona,
I wasn't sure if you needed them or not, but I transferred all the Fisher's in Irish Ridge to you. I figure they are all related, so that's why I transferred them to you. Hope you don't mind.

Perry Fisher
Hi Dona,
Just wanted to let you know that if you have any more information on Perry, please pass it on to me and I will post it on his site.

We are planning to try to restore this cemetery in the Spring of 2013. What a shame these people were put into this cemetery and nobody has ever tried to keep this cemetery updated. It is very run down and needs a lot of love and attention. It is so very sad to go into this cemetery because it is almost like they didn't care enough about these people to even honor them.

I am going to spend the winter months trying to find all the information I can for everyone listed in this cemetery.
Thank you,

I have taken on two large cemeteries. We will be adding 38,000 memorials and 46,000 pictures of headstones to Find A Grave during the next few months. If there are additional family members, just let me know. I just came in from taking a bunch of pictures at the GAR Cemetery in Snohomish, WA.

RE: Iva Balsinger/Bolsinger
No other Balsinger or Bolsinger' are here, sorry.
Some may have passed in Burlington,Ia.
I have had no luck with the courthouse there answering any questions about death records.

Added by Ron Chapin on Jul 13, 2012 1:35 PM

RE: Myrtle Balsinger
Yes, I think her name is Bolsinger and she died in Burlington,Ia. just across the river from here.
At least that is where I found Elliot and Frances in 1880.
The court house has no death records for any Bolsingers, I checked just now.
Feel free to correct the last name, she should be with you.

RE: Mary Ellen Geene relationships
Since Ballsinger /Bolsinger, it's just a matter of spelling, bought the east half of plot 334 and Mary Greene is connected to him, then the Hand / Barr buried on the west half of 334 are not necessarialy connected to the east half people.

Added by Ron Chapin on Jul 12, 2012 4:04 PM

RE: Mary Ellen Geene relationships
No, the cemetery will NOT sell any plots or parts of plots in the oldest section, that is where plot 334 is.
There are plots back there that have no burials on them, but the trustees at the time purposely did not sell them, I have no idea why they did not, but they did.
There are also plots that DO contain burials, there are just no stones on them.
I have three relatives on such a plot. I have found probably 20 people that are buried in the cemetery and have no stones. I go through court records once in awhile when I run onto different names. I just 'guess' at where they are by relatives either buried there or have bought the plot.
If the trustees were to sell a spot and dug up a body,,, well, that would be quite an embarrasement. And it has happened.
There is a new section to the cemetery where plots are sold now.

Good luck with your research and glad to put another smile on your face.

RE: Mary Ellen Geene relationships
1880 census has Eunice Barr in the houshold of George and Sarah Hand, listed as mother in law.
I took that to mean Sarah was her daughter.
I just HAD to know where I got my info as I had just pencilled it into a book with no references.

Added by Ron Chapin on Jul 12, 2012 3:35 PM

RE: Mary Ellen Greene rlationships
I have Eunice Barr as the mother of Sarah Hand, but I have NO idea where I got that,so I could be wrong.
I just like connecting people of different last names buried on the same plot.
Please keep me informed.

RE: Mary Ellen Geene photo
You are welocome for the photo.
It makes it real easy when I can walk right to the grave.
She is buried on the south east corner of plot 334.
Elliot Ballsinger bought the east half.
Sarah M. Hand bought the west half.
George,Sarah and Jane Hand along with Eunice S. Barr and Myrtle Balsinger are buried on plot 334.
I do not know if the others are related to Mary Ellen or not.
Guess that's your job to find out,,LOL.
