Robert L Jordan
Dear Lloyd,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the National Directory of the 355th Infantry, Robert L Jordan is a member of this unit, which is confirmed by his gravestone.

I'm not sure where my research is taking me at this point, but I want to think I will one day publish something. My I get your permission to use your photograph should I do so? This is for Find A Grave Memorial# 44285686.

Thank you!

I am trying to find some family of Sister Poppy and wonder if you know of any of the Stodolny and if you could help me find one? Sister was a close friend of my family and I would dearly love a picture of her...

Kate Sharron Boganowski
Find A Grave Memorial# 51871862
Kate Sharron Boganowski

Apparently this gravestone of (Kate Sharron) is shared with her grandson, Thomas A. Boganowski, with Find A Grave Memorial# 51871814.

This obituary I found via the Omaha Public Library
states this :

Note: I do not understand why the date of death is August 2, 1952 vs. published date of September 4, 1952.

Omaha World-Herald (Published as MORNING WORLD-HERALD) - September 4, 1952

SHARRON-Mrs. Kate, age 80 years.
6008 P St., August 2, 1952. Survived
by son, Robert J. McClellan; daughter.
Mrs. Thomas R Boganowski; brothers, Jake and William Knight; sisters, Mrs. B. H. Ritterholz, Mrs. Mary Cook, Mrs. Frank Blankman;
8 grandchildren; 8 great-granchildren.

Funeral Thursday, 8:30 a.m. Brewer
Korlsko Chapel to Holy Ghost Church,
9 a.m. Committal, Saint Mary Magdalene
Cemetery. Rosary at chapel Wednesday;
at 8 p.m.

Final note: I did check the 1952 calendar and
September 4, 1952 is a Thursday.

Therefore, may I suggest you drop the Boganowski.
If you have you will notice that she is in the 1910 & 1920 census with husband, Ernest W Sharron along with their daughter Ruth M. In the 1930 census she is living with her daughter, Ruth Bogauswski and her husband, Thomas - no children. Kate Sharron marital status is Widowed in 1930. Kate Sharron is in the 1940 census with her daughter, Ruth and husband Thomas, along with 4 grandchildren of Thomas A., Catherine, Norbert, and Francis.

Thank you!

Minnie Show and John Light
Thanks for the transfers, Lloyd. Even though the surnames are different these are very closely related to my Lydick line. John Light was a brother of my step grandmother Martha Jane (Light) Lydick. My real grandmother died at only 25. Minnie Show was a half cousin created by the Civil War as her grandfather was killed in the Civil War and her grandmother remarried to my great grandfather. An interesting weave.

Oh sorry. This is Harry A Johnson, son of Daniel and Sarah Jane Johnson. His sister, Nellie Fitzsimmons, signed for the grave marker. He was a private in WWI, not in 1940. However, I have 31 Jan 1890 as a birthdate. That is on his WW I Draft Card and on his SS. application. I submitted a change of date for birthdate with location and location for death.

I do not believe this is Harry A. Johnson, son of Daniel and brother of the siblings you listed. Harry A. Johnson was my great uncle. His birthdate was 31 Jan 1890. I don't think at 50 years old he would have been a Pvt. 1 Class. Maybe his son?

Elizabeth Creek Gillepsie
Hello. I attempted to change the name of this person but I seen that you declined my request, stating that it conflicted with your data. Elizabeth is my 2nd great grandmother and I have extensive research on her life, including her marriages. Elizabeth was born Elizabeth "Lizzie" Roxellen Dugger to John Martin Dugger (1858-1940) and Margaret Lydia Ann Stevenson (1860-1947). She married my 2nd great grandfather, Claude Howard Creek (1882-1930) sometime between 1900-1906. She married Earl Gillespie (1882-1967) on 10/30/1935. I do have a copy of Elizabeth and Earl's marriage certificate which shows that she was a widow when she married Earl. Her married name is shown as Creek and maiden name, Duggar. I am assuming we have the correct person since A) most of my (Creek) family is buried in that Cemetary and B) this person happens to share the same birth/death date. Assuming you are ok with this change, would you mind adding a few other things as well?
Husband: Claude Howard Creek #110619908
Husband: Earl N. Gillespie #114024458
Please let me know if there are any mistakes in my research or if I have the incorrect person.

You are very welcome. There are a lot of graves that are not documented. I also think there are a lot of unmarked graves.

RE: James Andrew or Bernard Miles
Hi again, Lloyd. I see Find A Grave says a link to the memorial will be sent with messages. I guess this one did not but wanted to let you know that I did not mean to make any difficulty for you.

RE: James Andrew or Bernard Miles
Lloyd, you are to be commended for all your hard work. I apologize for not including the number, James Miles is a common name and let me research this a bit and get back to you. Thanks again for all the time and effort you've certainly helped countless people.

Edward C. Clyde
Lloyd- in fulfilling a request on a grave near the headstone for Edward in La Borde Cemetery, I noticed that it only has a first name and initial with dates, placed next to a headstone with only a single name. In stepping back, it appears to me that the "Clyde" headstone marks the burial site of Clyde R. Potter. The large stone in front of these two headstones is for Clyde R. Potter. Is it possible that your memorial for Edward C. Clyde is actually for Edward C. Potter, a relative of Clyde R. Potter? They appear to be in the same lot. I added a far view in a new Edward C. Potter memorial. See what you think. Respectfully, Jeff.

James Andrew or Bernard Miles
Hi Lloyd! Thanks for volunteering your services it's nice to help faraway descendants honor their relatives.

I'm related to James Miles. Most sources that list a middle name as Bernard rather than Andrew. I was wondering if you got this from the marker, cemetery or another source? The dates and first names seem to line up. Also, do you have a source for his mother Mary Rishel Miles. I found documentation of a middle inital M but not Magdaline. Thanks so much!
