Robert Brown
Randy, Thanks for the tip on the eBay item! I went ahead and purchased it. I will have to do some further investigation as Robert was already in Eagle by the 1870 Census, and the document describes Robert as someone from New York.

Daniel Spencer Farnum
I believe his date of birth is 3 March 1823. He is my husband's grgr grandfather. He has a sister born in 1819 and a brother born in 1820, so that would lead me to believe the date is correct. I got it from old family records. His second wife's name is Elizabeth Rogers Booher. Thanks for the work you do. Barbara Fleming

You asked me if I saw your email about Mary and her husband. Yes I did and your comments led me to explore a little more about them. Look at #5473891 & 9528098.... Some years ago I went to a museum in Sacramento, CA or San Antonio, TX dedicated to the circus and saw pictures of the midgets that PT Barnum put in his shows with a minature stage coach for them. At the time I did not realize who they were.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial # 8663938
It's possible..I did this family tree for a friend last year. Really had forgotten the name! Should be fairly easy to research him.
All the best..

Addie Howlett
Thanks so much Randy for posting the picture of Addie on her memorial.

Her father and my great great Grandmother Eliza Howlett Akay were brother and sister. Eliza died when my Great Grandmother West (Melvina) was small and she was raised by the Howlett family in the Waterloo area.

I have so very few pictures of my family and am so thankful for any you have.

Thanks again,
Connie West Stewart

RE: John's photo found! #83438132
WOW ! Thank you so much! Where did this photo come from? how did you happen to find it? Are you related somehow?

You just made my day and I am sure when I show it to a couple other family history nuts, it will make theirs as well...

Hi Randy,
Regarding the grave of Pvt Samuel Berry, mem #50971346, interred in Summerfield Cem., Monroe County, MI, I got his military record from
Berry was born July 24, 1844, enlisted in the 121st Ohio Infantry, Co. B, August 18, 1862. Discharged June 8, 1865. Died November 8, 1901.

If you are not registered on the above website, why not consider it so you can submit the many Civil War graves onto it. Sometimes the data base already has it, sometimes not.

Those initials stand for Sons of Veterans of Civil War Data Base. Their office is in Rhode Island and it has congressional funding. I've submitted over 100, I don't get paid but since I am a "Cold War" vet, I get satisfaction in doing this.

We share common ancestors!
I've found your name on several memorials of my family. I believe we share the Cadys and the Hunts as common ancestors!

I am attempting to sort out the family of Lydia's parents, William and Lydia (Moore) Reed. A stopping block has been a son, John S., who married Sarah Eatinger. John has conflicting information on the census and Rootsweb. Do you have any details for John?

RE:George Webb
Hi Randy, Would you happeen to know the name of the DVD that the Mason Historical has for sale, I inquired about it, & the were not sure, said maybe "The Mason by the Sycamore"? Does that sound familiar?

I sure appreciate your help and hard work. I'm just trying to find all of the dislocated historical threads of my family. I've been doing this since the mid-60's so there's not much left to find, but there are so many more tools then back when I was in high school. then I just had books and when the Michigan State Library had no more I was done researching.
Thanks so much for doing so much work. Paul

I am interested in the various obits you have found and placed on my Civil War vets pages. Do you belong to a subscription web-based obit service? Would you be willing to share the "how-to" of "cutting" an obit from a full-page newspaper scan? A friend needs help.

Randy, I linked another son, Christopher to your Margaret Meeder Kaiser. I just found out through the Three Oaks, MI library that my gr-great-grandma Mary Korman Dittmar was married for a 2nd time to Margaret's son Christopher. I added his obit. but will need to locate Mary's.

Newspaper Obit for Calvin "Frank" Warner
Randy, I would like to thank you for the obituary you placed on my great-grandfather's page. I wonder if you have noticed the family photo I placed on his page. He was wounded in the Civil War, and the wounds must not have healed as they should have, because a few years after returning home from the Civil War, his legs had to be amputated--two years apart.

Thank you
I noticed that you put a Bio and death cert. for James Mulvany Memorial# 20294332. Are you related? I'm looking for where his farm was. Today I found a Bible record that said my family was buried there. "buried at the Mulvaney farm a quarter of a mile north of the Mulvaney School (fractional District No. Two, Penfield and Convis township)" The above James Mulvany and family were on the same page on the 1860 census Pennfield, Calhoun, Michigan Thank you for you time and help and all the work your doing at the cemeteries.Carole Alden

Thank you for your time.
