Promise I'll take good care of Sgt. John Boisseau! I hope to add details on his Revolutionary War service, since he was a great patriot. As you likely know the family never wavered from their support for America, even during the French and Indian War, when they fought on the side of the colonists.

Sarah Ann Fuqua was the mother of my 2nd great aunt! I just put up a memorial page to her - Mary Ann Boisseau Carter. Sarah and Benjamin also raised Mary Ann's husband, the brother of my 2nd grandfather John Boisseau Carter.

Would dearly love to work with y'all on this line since Simpson County, KY had a fire back in the 1880s and many early county records were lost.

How exciting - Boisseau cousins!! Please stay in touch! - JC Wilson :)

Thanks for the edit for this memorial.
Thank you for the edit you sent me for Ruby Aucutt-Slaughter (mem. #67886197) My memorial was created before the other memorial so according to Find A Grave the other one is the duplicate. I have requested that it be deleted. Just because a memorial has a photo does not mean it should be used instead of one without a photo. I have no idea why I had Ruby listed as being buried in the La Plata cemetery (except that was where her second husband is buried) but sometimes I don't add obits until months after creating the memorial and just didn't catch it. I do appreciate that you let me know that I had her listed in the wrong cemetery.

RE: Ada Viola King Boyd
You are more than welcome. I returned this morning and got a better photo in the daylight. If you would like me to remove the first photo let me know and I will gladly do so. I searched the area nearby to try to find her husband's grave but didn't see it. It is very possible that her stone is not above her grave. It is facing the opposite direction as the rest of the stones in that area and is resting against the stone of Flora Sutcliffe. It is stuck in the ground but may have been resting there for many years.

David C. Deffenbaugh is not buried in Macoupin Co., IL. Why don't you try the historical society in Hines.

RE: Sarah E. Deffenbaugh
Hi Paula,

I posted a tombstone picture and the obituary for Sarah Elizabeth Wheeler Deffenbaugh today.

I also created the Find A Grave Memorial # 129985119 for Minerva Clausen Deffenbaugh, John C.'s mother, and posted her obituary from the Macoupin Co. Historical Society. Hope you enjoy it.

Please note the headstone reads "Mable J." not Mary. Assume same person. If not, I will remove.

I believe that you and Greg Derylo have duplicate memorials for Elizabeth Duck Harlan. His memorial # 9004119.

Sarah E. Deffenbaugh

Several years ago I researched the Deffenbaughs of Macoupin Co., IL. Sarah is buried in Wheeler Cemetery North of Gillespie. I also have her obituary from the South County News. Are you family to her? My 3rd great grandmother was a Deffenbaugh from Fayette Co., PA, -very distant to Sarah.

Just a note, I posted a photo of the marker for Adam C. Dyson today with same dates as your Albert Dyson. Did not know if you would like to delete yours if it was incorrect. Chip

Fick, Augusta
Paula: This may be a strange request but I have just listed IOOF Chosen Friends cemetery in Massac County IL and listed all 480 grtaves there. In looking at the cemetery records for this cemetery I found Augusta Fick was buried there and you have lited her in Masonic Cemetery which is just beside Chosen Friends. Would you be willing to either trnasfer the memorial to me or move it yourself to IOOF Chosen Friends so they would be listed in the correct Cemetery? I have foundwhere the funeral home even listed in the obituary the cemeetery as Masonic when it was actually Chosen Friends. If you trnasfer yourself the Lot number in Chosen friends for Augusta is 85. The cemetery book that I used was publsihed in 1993 so any burials in Chosen Friends after that date would not be listed there be me. thanks for your help.

John is my father. I would appreciate your transferring his memorial to me. He is not buried in North Carolina. He was cremated and his ashes were spread at another location. He does share a joint headstone with Edna Moore Scales. Thank you Jennie Budden

RE: Amherst Cemetery
Hello Paula

The Fuqua headstone (I assume) is broken in two pieces. There isn't anything legible on the headstone, it was opposite (tree between) of where the small concrete Fuqua marker was. The broken headstone was in the same plot of Joseph Harrison King and Mary M Fuqua King. Lily King's headstone (infant daughter of Joseph and Mary)is between Joseph and Mary's headstone and the broken headstone. I don't have a phone number of the cemetery, there isn't anything posted there as far as contacts. James Fuqua (1870-1857) would of been 13 years old and Thomas's age is unknown. I assume that the small broken headstone was one of a child.

Thanks for updating Mr. Beck's memorial. I imagine there are lots of people who are memorialized on this site who were killed in action and it hasn't been noted. It was good to add this information to his.

Thanks for your help.

All the best,

Paula, I just got a message from the photo contributor that the photos had been removed from the Jolly memorials. Thank you for pointing that out to me. Ralph

RE: Gravestone owners
Paula, I was not implying you are critical. I was just having a hard time understanding what the error was. The stones on both memorial are identical. My vision is not very good. So I had to click on them to enlarge and also had to squint. The photo volunteer that mounted them had a complaint on their bio that others had been removing photos from their memorials and mounting them on others. That may be the problem since those memorial's gravestones were identical. Read the bio. Thank you for the help.

Gravestone owners
I am only a family history researcher just as you are. I have no interest or need of same in the ownership of the gravestones you mentioned. If I said or did something to indicate that, please let me know and I will do whatever to correct that. I am the researcher that created the Parks family tree that has approximately 1400 descendants including what was available to me of your Jolly family. Thank you, Ralph Franks
