RE: Henry Stapleton 132892910
Yes, I too am a Staples descendant, through the daughter Elizabeth who married Levi Sawyer.

James Staples changed his name because he felt Stapleton was too 'aristocratic' sounding.

You can even see this change over in the English censuses. In the 1841 Census, James and family are still the Stapletons (they are living in Cheltanham, Gloucester). But by 1851, Sarah (who is living alone, her husband having made the trip to the US) and children are living in St Pancras, London and called just 'Staples'.

The problem with this Stapleton line is the dearth of records available for Gloucester (where the Stapletons are from). Parish record coverage online for Gloucester is poor. James Staple's death record does call his parents Henry and Ann, and if you look on FamilySearch you will see a James Stapleton baptized in Gloucester, Gloucester that seems to be him, but I have never been able to verify much on this family. He had a marriage licence with Sarah Limbrick (not Limerick) in Cheltenham dated 12 Apr 1830, and beyond that and what is on the censuses that is about all I've got.

RE: Otto L. Peterson 141360923
Since he has a brother born 1917 I would think the 1915 date would be correct. Family members give the information for the DC and sometimes they are not correct. I think when the stone was made they might have had the correct information. You can make a note in regards to the confusion.

Jason, While doing an entry for Washington Heights Cemetary I happened upon one of your people, (Maude Bell Simmons Bate). The obit sounds like she was buried in Brigham City, but your memorial says Washington Heights Cemetary, South Ogden. I wonder where she sleeps?

I have a Sterling Price Johnson born to the same mother Katherine you have listed. But the father i have is Henry Cecil Johnson. My sterling has same birthdate and death information so i am wondering if you could have the wrong father? Theresa

Added by Theresa Hopkins on Nov 13, 2014 10:51 AM

Theresa Hopkins
I asked for a transfer of sterling price Johnson, but I have a feeling that this is not my husband's brother's brother. I have a feeling there were two Sterling Johnson's from Carlin. which is so hard to believe sense Carlin is so small.
I would like to share information on this possibility. Thanks

Yentzer Family at Ottawa Avenue Cemetery
Hi! All photo requests have been fulfilled.

I told you one wrong name: August is really Augusta. I submitted an edit to the memorial.

I also did not include this name in the list I gave you:

Enoch Yentzer: 2-19-1861 - 2-27-1936

If you add a photo request for him I will post the photos that I took.

Thanks for creating all of the other memorials. If you are a veteran, Happy Veterans Day to you and thank you for your service!

RE: Gilbert Robbins 70658928
We did live in Spring City and I do remember Thelma. My husband loved the old cars and he loved restoring and working on them. The gas cap you are referring to was put there by my son. One of my husbands friend poured the cement for the base of the headstone. My children and I went out to help with the process. They were young and got to help mix and stir the cement. My son had taken the cap with him and wanted it in the base so he was able to set it in the cement himself. He was 9 years old.

I was so disappointed. Wish I could have helped more. I can't imagine how their names were entered into the Find A Grave website or where the info came from. If you find them let me know and I'll take a pic for you. I do love a good mystery :-) Irene

RE: Anna Elizabeth Orth 48729196
Hi Jason,

Happy to be able to help.

Ann Elizabeth and her sons John Harry, William Frederick and Stanley Charles are all buried at South Brisbane but sadly their graves are either unmarked or have no inscription.

Ann Elizabeth's husband John Henry and her daughter Rose Ethel and an Ivy E are also buried at South Brisbane in an unmarked grave. Their records are incorrectly filed under Osborne.

There is picture of Leonard James's headstone on the Australia Cemetery Index site here

I can't find any records for James Daniel. I see he died in Melbourne and his son Leo was living there at one point.

There are quite a number of family notices and articles regarding the Howard-Osborne's in the digitalised newspapers held on that you might find interesting if you haven't already seen them.

Good Luck in you search,

Please consider removing the comments about Alice being in prison. It is not kind and is hurtful to family members. There are circumstances for that time in her life which you would find if you investigated more.
Her oldest daughter, Norah Hill told us once that her mother was a saint. After seeing her history I have little doubt that she was.

RE: James Pierce Bradley
Hi Jason,

Your welcome. I do not think Evergreen Cemetery was established until after 1800. I also checked all the other cemetery records in the vicinity of Salem, Washington County, New York (back then Charlotte County Vermont/NY) and did not find a listing for any Bradley. I have for years been trying to find some record that states our Bradley line was in the vicinity of Salem, Washington County, New York but I have not found anything. All I know is Nathan Bradley (brother of James Pierce Bradley) married Harriett Elizabeth Harnden (my 4th great grandparents) daughter of Jonathan Harnden who was one of the first setters of Granville, Washington Co., NY. So, they had to be in Washington County some place.

As you know if the Bradley family had a farm, James Pierce Bradley could have been buried on the property. From my knowledge of Salem, NY for that time it was just being established and at best was a hamlet that was settled in 1761 (for more information: and ) with a few structures, wood church built in 1764 by Dr. Thomas Clark congregation , another church, New England Presbyterian Church built in 1774 and schoolhouse that was taken down in 1777 to make a fort around the New England Presbyterian Church during the Revolutionary War. I use to have a summer place there for fifteen years, lovely location.

Glad that I could help.
