Thank You So Much
Thanks so much for taking a picture of my grandmother, Catherine Vines and Lillian Vines, my aunt's gravestone. That means a lot to me to know that they really passed away and that has helped a lot on my research on finding my dad and his family.

RE: Baby Gunilda Roberts
I have fixed the dates. I believe I got the original dates from a different website but it could have been a mix up on my part.
Appreciate your help.

You're welcome, glad to help. I will take another look to see if I missed the other two Bowmans. Hubby was with me so that was a quick walk through :)

Alvery Efferson
Regarding your request for a photo for Alvery Efferson in Greenlawn Cemetery, Hammond, LA - I believe that he is listed in the wrong cemetery. He is buried at Parklawn

RE: Newt Womack??
The two Newt Womack stones are close together. The Newt with no info except name is located just about 5 feet to the left of the double marker. To the left of the small stone is a small stone marking another grave, but there is nothing on it.

RE: Daniel & Charlotte Peters
You are absolutely correct. I have that difference mentioned in my FTW notes for Charlotte. I got her birth date from information from another researcher of the Goodall line years ago. I have another researcher who says she was born Feb 8, 1822, not 1824. Then, I too, noticed the difference on her headstone. It is something that needs more research on my end.

James Penny Grave in East Baton Rouge
Check out "Louisiana Cemeteries" on the web for Patriots and you will find some pictures of James Penny. We plan to visit the cemetery on Monday to check out the status of the cemetery.

This is what is on his memorial:

Published in Appeal Democrat on May 6, 2009

I manage alot of memorials. Folks send me changes, and I make them. This may be why he is in Spencer. Don't know more than this. Good luck in your search. Maybe search some funeral homes around that area. Sometimes they have directions to cemeteries.

It's not a problem - I'm happy to look up info. I'll let you know what I find.

RE: Gustave Hucke and Katherine
The Przybylski side of my family is somewhat of a mystery to me. There were several families, some of whom were not related that all immigrated to this area around the same time. I reach dead ends when I get the first immigrant of the family, as I can't find relatives to connect those families across in Poland/Germany. I'm not sure if the people that you list from the obit are related to me or not, sadly. I'd need much more information to make that kind of connection to the limited tree I have for the Przybylski's.

I upload cemetery registers for Portage County so that people can find relatives and there can be a more accurate representation of the cemeteries, as a lot of those before I started were sparse in number. I get the information from a compilation CD a retired professor put together. In his information, he does have families together, and sometimes included notes, but in order to get that information into findagrave, I have to reformat his information. If you really want the details, I have to import his info into a spreadsheet, add last names to half of the people, move names to separate columns, re-enter or extrapolate every date, and move every note and inscription to a different column. Findagrave does not have a column for relationships. There is no way to get that information uploaded. Once I upload those records, there is also no way for me to go back and re-add all of those family connections - I just don't have time. If I was doing records individually, yes, I would do that, or if someone contacts me to link them, I am happy to transfer the memorial or add that information. But when you upload a spreadsheet in the upwards of 1,000 people or more, I cannot go back to link those people. If I find a random obituary for someone and upload that, I do make any connections in the obit, but otherwise there's just no way for me to go back and re-reference. In the short term, I think it's better that the records are there at all versus spending time linking people.

I can look up any information you'd like or if you want to request photos of the graves of those individuals, I am happy to go take photographs. I'll always look up information and pass it along if I can. Email me the names of the people that you want information on, and I will check the cemetery files to see if they list them as husband/wife/family. If they are relatives, I am happy to transfer management to you so you can make further family links.

Sorry, I looked & looked, but could not find it. I took of photo's there before, my son-in-law is related to some Efferson's so I already had some, if I remember a Cecil Efferson, and several others. Some are old & unreadable, and broke!!! I can try again.

You are very welcome. I looked up the memorial on line in Louisiana. Looks like a peaceful place and the wood memorial is very nice and has a natural feeling too.

RE: Winnie Lanier??
Yes it was a long shot but I didn't see anything else close. Some graves were "unreadable". Do you want me to remove the photo?

As a habit I take more photos of like named graves and upload them at the same time. I have two photos that are not in the registry. F.L. Lanier wife of A.O. Morgan. Also Rosa Mae Glasscock wife of W.A. Lanier. If you would like the photos send me your e-mail address.

Foster Cemetery
I made your pics of Emey, William and Eugene FOSTER. Next to them is a small grave labeled "Infant daughter of Mr. & Mrs William Foster. Born & Died 1893 At Rest" I made pics of this one also if you would like to have them. I could not find Murphy or George, however next to the others is a double plot encased in cement with no name that I could find. This could be George Foster and Murphy Foster. Sorry I could not find a name.

Baby Roberts
I am not sure, I know that when I could not find Baby I started looking for dates and I do not recall seeing her dates. But...it was misting and I do not live any where near this cemetery. We had driven over 400 miles to go to the Howze Cemetery and I wanted to ck to see if there were any cemeteries that were close that we might take pictures for others. We did walk the entire cemetery but we might have missed it and that is why I did not want to close the request, maybe someone else in the area might be able to find it. Sorry.

RE: Wife #3 of Jacob Franklin Bell
Michael,

Thanks for the memorial links. This helps clear up the question about who Ettie married. It was to a Frank, but not Frank Bell.

I don't know why I'm telling you this, other than to justify not getting a copy of his third marriage record. Frank is only a distant cousin, not in my direct line. None of his descendants had any records for him or planned to go to the expense to obtain any. However, since I was writing a book about the family . . . Anyway, I had spent so much time & a goodly amount of expense in getting records of Franks' two marriages & divorces, his death record from KS, and hiring a researcher to get a copy of his obit and funeral record, that I couldn't justify spending any more to get a record of his marriage to his third wife. Not to mention obtaining records for other family members, etc.

You seem to be a pretty good researcher, so please let me know if you ever learn anything about Frank's third marriage.

Have a nice day,

Virginia

RE: Wife #3 of Jacob Franklin Bell
Hi Michael,

Thanks for your kind words.

Frank's first marriage was to Laura Alphonsine "Alpha" Higgs in Pioneer, Newton Co, MO on May 20, 1894. After their divorce he married Sylvia Mathey in Joplin, Jasper Co, MO on April 6, 1898. They were divorced in Nov. 1926.

In the spring of 1930, Frank, age 63, boarded with & worked as a handyman for the Dilley family near Mount Hope, a little farming community about 20 miles northwest of Wichita. They evidently thought he was widowed when they gave information to the Federal Census taker. Mrs. Dilley's mother, Etta McMurry, age 60, a widow, was also living with them.

There was definitely a third marriage to a woman by the name of Artie, with some indications that she was the widow, Etta McMurry.

They were living at 818 E. Murdock in Wichita, Kansas, when he wrote to his daughter, Helen Page, telling her that they had been in the hospital after having a car accident. He wrote that some of his ribs were broken; Artie's front teeth were knocked out, her nose broken in two places, and her head "cut to pieces." What happened to Artie after Frank's death on April 6, 1941, is unknown. His second wife, Sylvia, died on February 15, 1954.

I have only posted a small portion of individual bios from my book on FindAGrave memorials.

I will go out on Sunday and see if I can clean Zimmer's stone and get a better reading on it. It looks like 'No pain in... I see Jesus at the end, not sure about the rest. I will get any Efferson's I missed then. I am uploading the photo's I did take now.
