Rice Cemetery
Thank you for the picture of George Ferguson memorial in the Rice cemetery. Are there unmarked graves there or possibly a marker for Analo "Anna" Ferguson White?

RE: Old Grant County Cemeteries
There is an area in the North Mill Creek Cemetery that they designate as old. It was being buried in before the church was built but if you look at the rows of rocks you will see a rock with writing or a headstone in that area and it seems to be coming from one family and it's descendants. Nimrod Thorne had a part in this church and the Hines and Swick's and Lewis's are coming out of his line. I have the records but they don't say who's in there. There is also another area for the Weese's on the far left. In front of them is 4-6 rocks , unknown.
Most people believe that the Brake Cemetery was larger than what they have it to be. In the back the colored were buried. The rumor is that Brake is going to remove the rocks and put in markers that say unknown even if there is writing on the rocks. Hope this isn't catching in other cemeteries. I've told them that I've deciphered several of them so I don't know what they will do.
You can read old genealogy books and a lot of people from the Crites & Ours believe there people are in Brake.
I've read some of the Old North Mill Creek Luthern records and the people listed in the cemetery that is posted seem to be coming from that info.
Took me a good while to figure this out with help from a lot of local historians and reading. Wish we knew who all the rocks belong to, there the one's that bother me. With no writing it seems like they are forgotten.
Regards, Diane

Climema, Henry, and Mabel Morse stone
In the Lyons Cemetery, Fairview, Fulton Co, IL, you submitted pictures of this headstone on Find a Grave. Mabel Morse has memorial #20334865, and I will assume Climema and Henry were her children. I would like to be able to copy the photo you took and post it to the Morse's on Ancestry. Whenever we have copied pictures of headstones that others have submitted to Find a Grave, we watermark the picture with the name of the submitter and also their Find a Grave contributor number, and your pictures would be no exception. Do we have your permission to copy and watermark the Morse headstone pictures? Thanks. Nancy Gawthrop

Old North Mill Creek Church
The photos you took were of the North Mill Creek Baptist Church. This church was built in 1883 or after. The Old North Mill Creek Luthern Church was actually supposed to be located at what is now the Brake Church, where there is also an old cemetery. The records that are posted for the Old North Mill Creek Church probably came from the Old North Mill Creek Luthern Church records of death. Unknown as to whether the people are actually buried there. There is a few rocks with writing in the Brake Cemetery for a few of these people. Just wanted to correct the info since I see several people looking for pictures of the headstones. It gets a little confusing. Regards, Diane

RE: Welch Cemetery
Glad to help. I did walk entire cemetery and GPS marked each headstone. If you visit you should be able to walk right to anyone you are needing to find using the Find A Grave phone app and gps mapping. Holler if you need anything locally if you are not from the area. I will be doing the entire Bluejacket Cemetery soon.

Cathy & Thomas,
Today I shared a photo of Kate on her memorial. Please add that her occupation was a photographer. Perhaps the wonderful photo is her artistic work.
Thank you for your contributions.

Smoot name change
Dear Cathy & Thomas, I am researching my Smoot relatives in Daviess County, Indiana and would like to link them to Bruce Smoot but need to know how his name went from William H.H.Smoot to Bruce Smoot. He is found in the Apr.30,1910 Census Veale Township, Daviess Co.,Ind. with his step-father Andrew J. Allen (age 81) as Head of Household, his mother Phoebe Ann (Smith) Smoot Allen (age 65) himself (age 26) his wife Flossie B. Smoot (age 20) listed as step-daughter-in-law and his dau. Lorene B. Smoot age 5 months listed as step-granddau-in-law. William H.H. Smoot's father was Wm.H.H. Smoot (1836-1883) who passed away shortly after "Bruce" was born. Do you know anything about the name change. His, Bruce Smoot memorial#49076627 buried in Memorial Park Cem. Oklahoma City, OK Co. OK. created by Cathy&Thomas
Thanks for any info you have. Lily

I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting place of many of our "old soldiers" that had ties to Vt. Wm. T Fry is one such patriot. May I use the photo that you contributed to his Find A Grave Memorial, to post on the Vt. C.W. site? (
You would receive credit for this.

Thank you for your consideration.

RE: James William Bell's wife
I have Laura Daugherty born 12/25/1810 in Scott Co., KY. She died 1/1/1893 in Sidney, Ralls County. Do you have the published book by A.Louise Shelton on Greenwell-Little-Donnally-Hardy and Allied Families of Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri? The Bell family is covered in the book.

I am writing a book on the history of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Oklahoma to support our new state regent's educational project.

Joseph Kirk
I'm researching and writing a not-for-profit family history book on the Kirk family of the Nottingham, PA area and ask permission to use the image of Joseph Kirk's gravestone as an illustration in the section discussing him and his family. If this is OK, I will credit you - how would you like the credit worded? Thanks, Harvey Kirk...
