Shaughn Gray
Wilkinson Gray
I have run into that information before. I am not sure if it is correct or not. The history book of Randolph County has Wilkinson living with his in laws around age 80 having never married a second time. I have found some possible info that there may have been a second Wilkinson Gray that was a nephew of our Wilkinson Gray. The information that I have is that Wilkinson had a brother named Elijah that also named one of his sons after the famous military Hero, Wilkinson. The dates and ages seemed to show the Wilkinson that married Jennetta was younger than our Wilkinson. I do not have anything positive. That is just what I believe at this point. I haven't tried to Research Wilkinson brother any further.

Shaughn Gray
Wilkinson Gray
This is the info we have for Wilkinson Gray.

Moved to Wayne County in 1816, to Randolph County in 1835. Farm was 1/2 mile west of old Losantsville which is North of where Losantsville is located today. Married at 18 with 3 children before he was 21. Had 10 children total. Randolph history book says he never remarried till his death for 34 years at age 80. His son-in-law, Isaac Crouse lived with him till his death. Buried South of Losantville in Nettle Creek Baptist Cemetary. He was a member of the United Bretheren which had a meeting house in the beginning near the Antioch Burying-Ground, just within the suburbs of Losantville: The meeting house ceased to be used about 1855, and the society worshiped at a house west of Jordan Halsted's. About 1875, a new society was formed in Losantville, and the society met in a public hall. Wilkinson was a member of I.O.O.F. (Losantville Lodge N. 232) The lodge was formed May 18, 1864. The lodge burned down June 24, 1870. New hall built in 1881. Around 1881 Wilkinson was an officer (V.G.) Daniel Devore was (N.G.) at the time. September 24, 1850 Census gives his property value of $1200.00. Place of birth Kentucky. 48 Years old. Farmer. In 1820 Census, Indiana, Wayne County he was by himself, head of household between the ages of 16-26). Wilkinson on 1865 Plat map (Atlas) with son Hiram. Wilkinson owned 90 acres SW of Old Losantville. NW of now Losantville. Property remained the same on 1874 Atlas. Property had been sold to Augustas Metzlker & Cornelius Halstead on 1909 Atlas. I.C. (Moses), and W. Gray (William) Show up on 1909 AtlasN.W. of Old Losantville. Nettle Creek Township population in 1826 was 596 souls. Wilkinson moved from Mason County, Kentucky in the Mill Creek area. P)roperty owned by Alexander was bought from the Mills. Trip to Losantville found Wilkinsons property, located just NW of current Masons Lodbe. Talked to resident on property. Said rumor that Wilkinson b uried a lot of money on property but they never found it. Said Gray was killed in tornado in 1920's between Losantville and Haggerstown. Lived in brick schoolhouse. Gray lived at corner down from her house to several years ago. (late 1990's) Death records show Matilda Long dying in 1849 and the gravestone shows Margaret dying in 1849. Believed to be the same persn. Marriage license for Wilkinson in 1853 marrying Catherine Fitch. (History books says never remarried?) Could be different Wilkinson . Cemetary stoen is located in the middle of cemetary on the north side. Found marriage in Early Indiana. Marriages under William instead of Wilkinson. Does show wifes name as Matilda, but has Margaret on gravestone. One of the names may be her middle name. Because name on gravestone reads Margaret her middle name was most likely Matilda.

Edie Bowmaster
Hello....I just posted pictures of the marker of Wayne and Edie Bowmaster. Bert Ondak is a very wonderful woman who works at Floral Hills who helped me locate their marker. Please note that you indicated their lot is 546, when it is actually 564. Upon arrival at the grave, it was noted that the death year of 2010 has not been added. Bert said she was going back to the office and would look into that. She asked me to write to you and let you know she is investigating this. You may contact her at 816-353-1218. If you find out that the date has been placed on the marker, let me know and I will take another picture. Just for reference...if you ever visit the grave yourself, the first marker in their row has the last name of Tutor. Please contact me if there are further questions. If you want to contact me via e-mail, please write to Thanks..Marsha Miller

RE: VanVorst
HI, Patty,

Glad I could help. I also photographed headstones for Zeb and Ida Van Vorst, they are buried right next Claud and Rose.

If you would like to create memorials for them, I will add their photos as well. (Unfortunately the stone is rather worn and did not photograph well, but I can try to get a better photo later)

John Howe Find A Grave Memorial# 38224486
Hi Patty,
Got your message...

Hi Jen,
I have a question. In John Howe's obit it states he had 3 sons, Edward B., Henry H., and William G. But the children linked to him are Helen and Charles? Can you clear this up for me?
PattyB findagrave #47090714

He died in 1893, Edward B., Henry H., and William G. were his children living at the time of his death. You'll notice that Helen died in 1867 and Charles died in 1881. They predeceased him, and were not included in the obit for whatever reason. I add a lot of the really old obits, and often find that children or other family who had died before the deceased got either a general mention without actually naming them, or no mention at all.
If anyone knows where Edward B., Henry H., and William G. are, they are certainly welcome to link them to their parents.
So hopefully that clears that up :)

Charles D. Vincent
Hi Patty,

I am interested in the information you posted about Charles D. Vincent born 1793 in Switzerland and died in Kankakee, Kankakee, Illinois in 1876. My great-great grandmother was Mary Ann Vincent, born 17 Oct 1821 probably in Ohio and died 21 Feb 1854 in Mifflin Twp., Franklin, Ohio. She is buried at Riverside Cemetery. She married Silas Park on 25 Apr 1842 in Delaware county, Ohio. I don't know who her parents were but I recently found a Charles Vincent in the 1840 Kingston, Delaware, Ohio census and the 1850 Blendon, Franklin, Ohio census. In the 1840 census there was a 19 year old female living in the household (Mary Ann would have been 19 in 1840) and I am wondering if Charles could possibly be her father. You listed several children, do you know if they are all of the children he and Louisa had?

Mary Ann Vincent Park had the following children:
Hellen Luann Park
Julia V. Park
Zenas Park
Jacob D. Park
Isaac Vincent Park
Mary A. Park
Susan L. Park
Arthur Chesner Park.

I noticed that several of her children's names match those of Charles and Louisa's.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Ronna Dumas
