|Russ C||RE: Mount Hope Cemetery|
I hesitated to visit the place yesterday. Weather was OK but the place is really overgrown this time of the year. Not best conditions for getting full shots of stones.
It is a dangerous hike.
There is a fallen/broken stone near the same family and I took a shot of it as it is, and another showing a foot stone with initials H. K. A search in the cemetery had I think 3 hits with those initials and one being the person you seek.
I would need a buddy there with me to flip the stone to then take photos.
I added about 50 memorials with my photos, plus photos to existing memorials from my visit yesterday.
I could send the photos I did take of the fallen stone to your email?

|Nick, Amy & Collin||RE: Caroline|
I actually don't have any information about this memorial. The majority of the memorials I have entered in for the Secor Cemetery that were not my family members came from a genealogy listing which I am unsure if it was done by a walk-through or a cemetery record book. My recommendation would be to call Secor Cemetery. I would hope that they would have an accurate record as to whether she is buried with her husband or if someone walked through and took this information from a stone. Please let me know what you find out so I can update this memorial or delete it. Sorry that I can't be of more help!

|Ed OBrien||RE: Gibsons|
Your very welcome,Tien, just glad I found it, Elizabeth's stone had been toppeled and was lying on its back, and I got the best shot I could. Just happy you can enjoy it.

|Joy Malessa||RE: Mary Kerr #60868910|
You are absolutely right about the 5. I also changed the 3 to an 8 in her age. My picture still looks like a 3, but I could definitely be incorrect and I think leaning toward the side of references makes sense.
I think if Mary was from my family I would see if anyone can take a new picture of her stone to be certain. Unfortunately I don't even live in the same state and can't help with that.

|Joy Malessa||RE: Mary Kerr #60868910|
Thanks for the heads up. I zoomed in on the original picture and I'm still pretty sure it says she was 36. Compare the 3 and the 8 on the line above. I did find one error while looking at it. Her year of death was 1856, not 1866. I'm going to change that right away.

You are welcome to use Mary Kerr's photo. I too appreciate being able to link a photo with a person in my tree, even if it is just a photo of their grave.

|DJ Csikos||RE: Bennett family|
Hello Tien: Thanks for the info about the Baze family. Will try Ancestry myself, if I have problems will let you know.
The other Bennett---
David Calvin Bennett is a son of Daniel Bennett (1830-1883) & his first wife; he was only 10 when Daniel married my relative Anna Betts so she was step-mom to David, John, & Martha...Dan & Anna also had son Edgar who died young (but half brother to David, John & Martha). Most confusing those "blended families"

|DJ Csikos||Bennett family|
We have talked (written) before about the Bennetts in the cemeteries in MO & WA; I am following the Bennett part of the line and have some quetions. Just wrote this to Kay and then realized that I did not ask you for the answers and you may have them...would you take a look and see if you can help. This is what I wrote.
What I would really like to know is who was her last husband. Mr Barbishe...would like a name so I can research him too.
You mentioned Tien but she is doing the Bashford family & not following the same lines that I am. If you do not know the answer to Mr Barbishe (best info would be name and dates and places--but that is hoping for a miracle--any part of those items welcome)
do you know someone in the family who does. I have some other quetions about the Bennett family so need some guidance.
David Calvin Bennett was married twice at least; do you know about him; actually his wives...I have Susan, Ida, Jessie & don't know if there were 2 or 3; cant tell by the records I have available.
His daughter Florence was married 3 times...to Dock Baze; Peter Anderson & Delbert Pence; need someone to help me with which Peter Anderson (some dates or location of death etc)
Hope this give you an idea of the sort of help needed and that you can help or can recommend someone else who can.

|Kay Patterson||Remarkable discovery!|
Until today I had no idea that anyone in my family had ever served in the Civil War much less the Revolutionary War or that I had any relatives in the US before the 1850's. John W., Ransom and David Basford are the brothers of my paternal great-great-grandmother Martha Bennett. This has been quite a find - thank you!

Sorry it has taken me so long getting this memorial transfered. I have had cataract surgery on both eyes in the past 4 weeks and haven't been able to wear any glasses. Again, I apologize!

You are very welcome, I really enjoy doing this. I work at the VA so the cemetery is right there which makes it easy access when it isn't raining :) It is a very fulfilling adventure. Glad I could help.

I Got the pictures but as you can see the momument is old and badley weathered. But realy it was in good shape for the age of it, at least it was readable with a little effort.Thank you for letting me be of service. Thanks again, Pat

"Hey, this is me applying for permission to use the photos for Ransom Basford, David Basford, Jonathan and Guly Basford for their ancestry trees."
Tien Le, You have my permission and I thank you for asking. I would like to be listed as the source of the photographs. I think you said you link them back to findagrave, so that would work just fine. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing your letter. What a hard life they must have had. I had no idea. Such a letter is indeed a treasure.
