Hi Kelly,

I tried reaching out to you about 5 years ago regarding my great grandmother, Adalaide Holcomb, but we were never able to sync up (I was too new to understand what I was doing then). I'm making a more concerted effort and am hoping to understand the connection. I have a photo that I understood to be my great grandmother and it turns out you have the same photo in your tree for Eunice Cornelia Denison. I was hoping to understand which one is correct.

Eunice would have been my 2nd Great Grandmother, Mother to my Great Grandfather John Holcomb. My grandfather is Sterling Junior Holcomb.

I would really appreciate the chance to understand the photo and to understand our connection.

Ogle photo request
There are 6000+ people in St Paul's Cemetery and there are 13 photo requests. The staff is not willing to research all of this for me to take a photo, but if you call and ask for just your location, I am sure they will help. After you get the locations let me know what they are and I will take the photos.
Their number is 304-723-0622

Thanks so much for the dates & maiden name. Are you related? Do you want a transfer?

RE: we must be Denison cousins
Dear Kelley,
Let's see if I understood. You are descended from John Monroe Holcomb and Martha Louisa Pettigrew through their son Alwyn Ronayne Holcomb and his wife, Emma Buchmeyer?
I'm a bit disappointed that you are not a Denison. I thought I had found a new cousin, but it's nice to meet a new cousin-in-law.
Do you know of a Holcomb/Denison descendant who might be interested in submitting their research for the genealogy?
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

P.S. My daughter is named Kelly.

we must be Denison cousins
Dear Kelley,
Because you are a Holcomb and submitted a photo of Eunice Denison Holcomb's tombstone, we must be Denison cousins. My grandfather was Henry Denison, Eunice's brother. He and his family came to Arizona, and I have lived here all my life.
Because you are interested in your genealogy, you might like to become involved in a project. The Denison Society (a nice group of nonpretentious people) is getting ready to publish the third Denison genealogy. I was trying to update my information on Eunice's family so I could submit it with the information on my Denison line. I'm pretty sure you would be the better person to do this.
If you would like to do this, you can send your basic info genealogy (name, birth, marriage, death, burial) to The Denison Society, 120 Pequotsepos Rd., Mystic, CT 06355-3043. You can also reach them online. Just search for The Denison Homestead, Mystic, CT. They would like to have all the information by December but did not say when in December. I know this is short notice, but I just found you.
Please write back to me.

George Pettigrew
I have information on the Pettigrew Cemetery from a newspaper article (1984) which shows a picture of George Pettigew's headstone. Let me know if you would like me to email this to you. The small cemetery is in very poor shape now and I think the stone is broken.

Nevada Watson
Thanks for the correction. In looking at the death certificate more closely they have her father's name spelled as Phillix McGinnis. The x is a little sloppy so I thought it must be Phillip.

Would you be related to Sarah Jane? I just connected with her son Dean from her marriage to Clay Dean White.

RE: Meriwether
No one else of my family is buried in Keene. J G Taylor had two wives who pre-deceased him, but they are buried near Wills Point and Texarkana. A real shame he wasn't buried beside one of them. Thanks, again, for your good work. Joel M

John Gibson Taylor
Just realized you have posted a photo of the gravestone of John Gibson Taylor, Keene Cemetery, Johnson County, TX. Please excuse my tardiness in thanking you for doing that. He is a great grandfather and, being in California, I will likely never have the opportunity to visit the site. Appreciate your service to Find a Grave.

RE: Hallsted
Thank you so very much for the photo you took for the Hallstead memorials. I really appreciate it! I live too far from that location and was not able to get a photo of my relatives gravesite. It actually looks nice with the bluebonnets growing around it. Thank you again for your contribution.

RE: Duane Huffer
You are welcome. My Great Great Grandfather Daniel Thomas Haynes, and GG Grandmother are buried out there as well as a bunch of other family. I had not been out To Dover 1st Baptist since I got my new camera and wanted to take newer photos. In addition I had heard the church just added a very large addition. My wife was at work so my kids Lily and Marshal hopped in the van and took a short little ride out the the church and was able to find the site right away.
I used clues from this website..

Have a great day.

Adalaide Holcomb
Hi Kelley,

I'm new to the site and am working to construct ancestry data for my family and found your name under Adalaide's memorial - she was my great grandmother. Her son, Sterling Jay Holcomb is my mother's father. I was hoping to reach you to see if we're somehow related and perhaps bridge a gap in data!

I'd love to hear from you.

Peace Maker and family
Kelly- I found Peace Maker for you in Crownland Cemetery in Noblesville, IN. There are two Family markers for the Maker family. One marker has Peace Maker b.Nov 25, 1801? d.Jan 27, 1879. This side very weathered, I think it said 1801.
On the opposite side it has Rebecca Maker b.Dec 20,1810 d.Oct 22,1898.
Now just to the west of this is another marker similar in design but a tad smaller. This one says: David Maker b. Aug 8, 1812 d.Aug 31, 1879. On the other side of the marker is:
Caroline wife of D. Maker b.june 8,1825 d.aug 22,1884. I'll get the pictures up soon. Hope this helps- happy "rooting"

I got home and found that Benjamin's picture was blurry and off center. I will be returning hopefully within the next two weeks and will retake the picture. I wanted to at least upload the one I had so you could see the stone.

Hello Kelley,

I updated the memorials with your additional data and transferred both to you. I'm always happy to learn that one of my random additions to Find A Grave is found by a relative. I was just at the cemetery yesterday taking pictures but maybe I'll make a quick trip today and the photos before you have a chance to request them. We have a couple volunteers who are ever so quick to claim requests and I'd kind of like to finish these two myself. Best of luck with your family research. -Nancy Person
