RE: Victor Ladwig
No way! Thank you so much! My house is out of city limits, so the information I've found is limited, it seems. What a great bit of info! I've checked some of the census records, too. So interesting! I did not realize he lived in town (College Ave.) and rented a farm. Someone told me that was not uncommon. My house is about 8 or 10 miles from downtown. My address is: 5101 NCR 9 in Fort Collins. It used to be (I think) Route 2 or Rural Route 2. There used to be a well, a windmill, and an outhouse! The well is still there, but not the other two. I have deeds dating back to the Patent to the Union Pacific Railroad from the US, but there is where a lot of the records stop. The deeds suddenly mention a structure/house, but the date is well after we think the house was built. I know Ladwig was from W. Virginia. I think Jacob Fisher was, too. I wonder if they knew each other before coming here! Such an interesting mystery! Thank you so much for your attention! I know you must be so busy!

Researching my house
Hello! I'm not related to anyone on this page, but Victor Ladwig's name has come up a few times as someone who used to own the property my house is on. It was built (we think) around 1902 and I've been researching it on and off for years. I was wondering if anyone could let me know anything about him if they might be related somehow to him? There are quite a few other names related to Mr. Ladwig's and my house. I'm not certain Mr. Ladwig even lived in my house, but I'm trying to find out who actually built it. It is in Fort Collins, Colorado, and your website is fascinating to me and the possibility that I might learn a little about those involved in our small farm's beginnings is amazing! Jacob Fisher is another name that has come up and he and Victor Ladwig owned a grocery store in Fort Collins...I think. My research is still in-progress. Thank you so much for this website and any, any information you might be able to throw my way!

We are cousins!
Cousin Sharrell,
I am the Great-Grandson of your cousin Wilbern Akers (1892-1976) -- I saw that you left flowers alongside a comment on his grave. He was the son of John A Akers (1857-1893) & Mary A Isenhower (1860-1936). Would you happen to have photographs of this branch of the family? It is on my mother's side and has been difficult to find information. I know far, far more about my father's side.

Grace Sarah Dye Drake
This was my grandmother. She had 11 children. You do not have them all listed. Boys - Thompson, Isaac, Clayton, James and Miles. Girls - Birtie, Beulah, Catherine, Edna, Evelyn, and Olive. If you need additional information I can send it to you. I am researching the Dye/Dey and Drake families. My grandfather Clayton Bunn Drake was also buried in the Same Cemetery.

Thought you might like to know.

Margaret Weems Ross/Cross Anchor Cemetery
For whatever reason your request for a photo is not showing up on my Find A Grave screen, but I did get the email about it. There is no marker for Margaret Ross. I canvased the cemetery in the winter of 2013-2013 and I know I went over Section D thoroughly since there were so many old markers, field stone, and markers without writing that could be read any more...just smooth stones. I also went over what I had with the man who maintains the cemetery and I have his records as well.

By the Way, Here's an Example
I happen to be working right now on George Wallace Dye - Ancestry dot com says he is.....

the 1st cousin 1x removed of wife of 2nd cousin of husband of aunt of husband of niece of husband of niece of husband of grand aunt of wife of 3rd cousin 1x removed

LOL - you see my obsession?! I do personally know the very last person in the list, thanks to Facebook - I do know my "3rd cousin 1x removed", having found him because of his unusual last name. I searched for that surname and asked if he might be related - and - we found that we are!

Very Nice Work You Have Done!
I have been exploring a lot and adding lots and lots of your information to my family tree - no, we are not particularly related - Your people are distant relatives of the wife of a 3rd cousin of mine, but due to my level of obsession with family history, I follow branches to matter how far they get from my roots, especially when I run across lovely photos, amazing gravestones, additions such as death certificates, and other information you have added to memorials such as census information.

Thank you very much for sharing so extensively!

Harry Ross Rupp-Slater
Oh goodness, no problem. I was getting mixed-up myself yesterday trying to keep my Harry's straight! Harry born in 1885 was my great-grandfather's brother and somewhat of a "cad" according to family lore. But everyone has a "good" side and I'm trying to separate the fact from the fiction. Pam

The Two Harry's
It can be confusing, there are TWO Harry Ross Slaters. Harry Ross Slater, born in 1885 in New York is the adopted father of Harry R Rupp - later to be known as Harry Ross Slater, Jr. who was born in 1915 in Kansas. Does that help?

Added by PJackson on Nov 19, 2013 8:41 AM

Harry R. Rupp Slater FAG 115834375
Hi Sharrell: Thank you for responding. I'm sorry, I'm not understanding your question. I have found ages on census not to be an "exact" indicator of year of birth. I always give or take a year, it depends on what time of the year the census was taken and whether the subject had observed their birthday. I have added Harry's obituary to his memorial and perhaps that might help. Even though the Slater family originated in Pennsylvania, the family moved to Ohio, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas following the oil business. They built oil derricks and at one time were quite successful. Pam

Harry R. Rupp #87176055
Dear Sharrell; I descend from the Slater family who married into the Norris family. Lucretia Theresa Norris Macy Rupp was sister to Clara Agnes Norris Slater Hale. Lucretia was first married to Frank John Macy, by whom she had a son, Willard Francis Macy (1910-1993). After her first husband's death, Lucretia then married Clayton Rupp and had Harry R. Rupp. After Lucretia's death in 1918 and Clayton's in 1926 both boys bounced around with relatives until they were taken in by Harry and Clara "Hattie" Slater (who later divorced). Both boys were adopted and given the Slater surname. I have created memorials for Willard Francis Slater (Find A Grave 120502036) and Harry Ross Slater, Jr (formerly Rupp memorial# 115834375). In his obituary he is referred to as Slater, so he didn't revert back to the Rupp surname. I have a copy of his obituary that I will be happy to share with you if you wish. Thank you so much for your consideration of this email and I will be happy to share any research with you. Pam Jackson

RE: Velma E Giseburt
It literally was the very last stone we looked at, this cemetery is well laid out but there are a lot of the original markers placed at the time of burial and most of them are missing names or some just have the pole it was fastened to.

James Neal
You posted a photo request for James Neal at Sunset Gardens Cemetery, Saline, Missouri. The cemetery had no record of this burial, so I searched on line.

I found an obit for James Denver Neal, son of John Dunkin Neal and Sarah Yost Neal, born May 9, 1887 and died 1969 in Moberly, Randolph Co. Missouri. He was buried in the Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Moberly, MO. I have a copy of his obit - if you would like it, please let me know. I found it on It was published in the Moberly Monitor-Index Newspaper.

Do you know if he was related to Mattie Neal? There was another photo request for that name and I found that she was also buried in Sunset Memorial Gardens in Moberly, MO.

John & Kitty WEEMS

Thanks for the quick response. As far as extensive research goes, to this date, Kitty's maiden name hasn't been located.

Also, John WEEMS was not Rev. John WEEMS, if this stands for his occupation.

Thank you again,

John & Kitty WEEMS, TN

I would be very interested in the source info for the maiden name of Kitty WEEMS, wife of John. I have been working with other WEEMS researchers for years in an attempt to locate her maiden name.

One of the mysteries, John WEEMS was given guardianship of (my 5th great grandfather) John BLACKWOOD'S orphan children 2/1793 Greene County, TN Court Records, children; Margaret BLACKWOOD and Nancy Ann BLACKWOOD.

Also: Greene County TN Court Records, County Court Minutes, Book 1(1783 - 1796), 153, Ordered that an order of sale issued to JOHN WEEMS to empower him to sell the perishable estate of JOHN BLACKWOOD.

The families WEEMS & BLACKWOOD never intermarried. John BLACKWOOD'S wife, Ann. Her maiden name has not been discovered.

Pleas let me know your source for the maiden name, I may be able to uncover some evidence leading to Ann's name.

Thank You,
Linda Cashen Gaunt (
