|Christina Hiestand||Elizabeth J. Conley|
I believe I may be the 3 x Great granddaughter of Elizabeth J. Conley, memorial #52935743. I live here in the Portland area, I visited the Columbian Cemetery in hopes of finding her grave marker and I was unable to find it. Can you tell me where it is located? I found a Harry K. Conley but no Elizabeth. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

You manage a memorial for "Teeters" #73829299 (an HCC resident with no first name). I managed to get a photo now that it has been cleaned up and the first name shows as "Eunice J." with the dates 1917 - 1971. When you get time, please add this info to the memorial.

My husband is the Great Grandson of William Mock buried in the Historic Columbian Cemetery. I have been working on the Mock genealogy for years and would like to link this grave with my other ones. Would you consider transferring this one to me so I can help my husband and his family with honoring the family name?

I will plan to meet you then. Have a Happy New Year :)

Thank you for writing back! I saw Sarah Deadmond's stone yesterday, and could find it again pretty easily. It's back by the wide tree in the north-east area. I looked at the maps on the savecolumbian website and I'd guess that her grave is near the Deadmond you list in Section 14.
I noticed that many 'flat' markers have been uncovered lately and am very impressed with all the improvements at Columbian.
It would be great to meet and gain a better understanding of the maps through the years. And hopefully see if I can be of any help with the ongoing records work that has been mentioned on Facebook.
I'm having surgery on my right hand on Thursday morning so I think I'll be worthless until Sunday or so. Would any time next week work for you? I'm flexible, so let me know. Thanks!
Have a Happy New Year!

|Cheryl||RE: Deadmond Location|
Just to clarify, were you referring to William Bartlett and William Franklin Deadmond, or do you have two William Deadmond entries in your index for Columbian?
Do you happen to know the location number for Sarah Deadmond? The space next to her was empty and I can't decide if it's a walkway or a sunken marker.
Thanks again, I appreciate your help!

Thank you, I was just looking for him today. I found Sarah, but not William. I'll go back out there and look again. I appreciate your help!

I've found a stone for a "Lois M Anderson". Could this be the correct one?

|Laurann Cowan||Christian C. Oihus|
Thank you for your efforts. I notice that you have posted several newspaper items and attached them to several of my family members. I have a copy of Christian's obituary but it was given to me by a cousin and does not indicate which paper it was printed in. It's quite possible that it was the St.Johns Review. Do you have access to micro film copies of that paper?
I believe Christian was usually referred to as C.C. Oihus which causes some confusion since his father was Christopher Christiansen Oihus. At the time of Christian's birth his parents were still using the old Norwegian naming system in which the first born son was named after his paternal grandfather (who happened to be Christian Christiansen). In that case, his name would have been Christian Christophersen. The family apparently did not start using the Oihus surname until after they had acquired homestead land in South Dakota. Christopher and all of his brothers then started using Oihus as a last name. This is the name of the farm from which they came in Norway.
I have sent several corrections and new information by using the "edit" link at the top of each of the pages.
Thanks so much for all your information and your help. Laurann Oihus Cowan

Phillips-Frasier, Thank You for posting the picture of my Great Grandfather and Grandmother's Grave Stone: Charles Edwin Root and Minnie Root. You said it is close to Charles and Jennie Root as well. Do you have a picture of that you can post or send me?

|John P Bowden||RE: Thanks!|
I hope this is not redundant. I just typed a message and somehow it vanished. I am honored to sponsor my Grandfather and Grandmother. I am one of the few left who actually knew both of them. I remember Grandpa holding me in his arms when I was a small child. I was there the day he died. Grandma lived in our home almost all the time I was growing up. She continued to live with my Mom until she died.
I have a lot more information to fill in and will endeavor to get that done, as soon as I have it all accurately. I believe that my sister and you have communicated, but I am not sure of your exact relationship. Are you a descendant of (great) Uncle Joe and Aunt Dora? I also met him when he visited us when I was 5 or 6.
Take care, John

|ALS||RE: Helen Hunter Mckesson|
We got the name of Helen M (Hunter) Mckesson's father from sister Judy, and was verified with a match her death certificate (Cass Co, Mo public records #20582). We found James M Hunter in Census of 1860 for Wisesmill, Webster Co, Ky, age 64, wife Martha age 63, both born in either N or S Carolina, and a 22 yr old son, also named James M. Listed in the same census are several other Hunter's in the same county, who are most likely related. Martha Hunter would have been about 36 in 1824 when Helen M was born in Ky, and about 41 when James M the second was born.
We don't know for sure about any previous marriage to explain the different last name from the obituary, which we do not have a copy.

You've done a great job with the tributes and posts you've done for your Phillips ancestors. Thanks for taking and posting the photo.
The picture of the Phillips baby, being held, in baptismal gown, is very beautiful. The photos you have posted add so much to the memorials. Thank you.
