I certainly will. I think some of that stuff people can use. I don't think of Find A Grave as just a memorial but a tool for geneologists. My brother in law Jack died in 1984, but if you get up to 2002 or 4, I forget, his Mother, Ollie Walker might be there. Wish I could do that with you! Dang! :) Have fun Nancy!

Thank you so much for the article & the correct dates. I so appreciate your patience in this endeavor. You don't happen to have his wife, Ollie's obituary, do you? Or his son, Jack Junior Walker. Jack was my brother in law, but I didn't do Find A Grave at that time..
If you don't, it's all good. I'll figure something out. :)
Best regards,

Info you send along
Just a note to thank you for all the obits and edits you send along. If they are in Mount Hope Cemetery, after I add the info, I print the page. All the obits we find for Mount Hope people go to the offices there, to be placed in their files.

Harvey Benham
I am looking for family of Henry Benham (one of the memorials you manage. My Great Grandfather and Henry were best friends as teenagers and I have a picture of the both of them together. Just thought I would let you know in case a family member contacts you.

I'm a cousin...
My dad was John W Ross. I think I may have
met you one time when I was a kid, Nancy. Just wanted to say thank you for keeping our family history alive.
The Turkey Farm is now closed. A Sad day, but life must always go on.
I love all the photos you have posted. I'm amazed at the strong line of genetics that have run through our family. I remeber your mother quite fondly...what a character she was!!
Feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone. 646-761-5052

RE: Hancock Family
Dear Nancy,

I am a double Blackburn! My 3 Greats grandfather Hancock married a Blackburn.

I can never remember how I am a double Blackburn. I'm always writing to Kevin Howley, the keeper of the Database.

He has found out for me that my Chiropractor is my cousin and that one of my Gregory cousin's wife is also my cousin!

Sometimes the relationship is through another name. I'm related to my cousin's wife through a Thomas Griffith and Eve Faulkner.

For me it's a small world all the time due to those prolific Blackburns!

I bet if I ask Kevin he could tell me right away. I'm going out of town today so I'll ask him tomorrow. Just give me maiden names and some ancestral names.

Karen (isn't this fun!)

Amelia Keener Sherman
You are listed to have submitted Amelia Keener Sherman's information for find a grave at Rochester Cemetery in Topeka. Her birth month is March. She would be my great grandmother.
Her husband was Jeremiah Sherman. He is not located in Rochester Cemetery. If you or anyone else knows anything about Jeremiah, I would be extremely grateful. My grandmother Devota Sherman-Walters has passed away and I promised her I would find out where he was buried.

No problem- you've helped me many times, too. If I can ever be of any help back here, let me know, and thank you for the kind words!

If you ever run across
If you ever run across a Susan Bellgarde Curwick, Kerouac or similar name. I am pretty sure she passed away in Shawnee county 1875-1880. She was married to Hyppolite (Paul). Several spellings of their name as been found.
Thank you for all the memorials you have made. They help others to connect with their family.

Lora and Oliver Yeager
Thank you for the information on Lora Yeager. If you ever come across information on her husband, Oliver A. Yeager, that would be welcome. I am still searching for their markers at Valley View, the information I have came from another source. There is another Oliver Yeager (b. 1916) who is not this one, but who also lived in this area.

RE: Beegles - Union Church
Me too - re losing family in the flood - and I have found proof of some stones being moved to other cemeteries. It was a tragic time. I think I will do as you have done. Thanks for your help.

Hi Nancy, thanks for the transfer. I'm okay with you holding on the them if you want to keep a big family all together, so let me know. If not I'll take good care of them for you. I really appreciate all the work you've done. It really helps me in finding more about my family history. Have a great day!

Elizabeth Wolf Griffith
Dear Larry & Nancy:
Thank you for your wonderful photos of Jenner Baptish Church graveyard. So much of my family! I believe the Elizabeth Wolf Griffith you asked about was the wife of Jesse Griffith b 1763, son of Thomas & Eve Faulkner Griffith. I do not know Elizabeth's ancestry. Jesse was disowned by Menallen Meeting in April of 1787, probably for marrying out with Elizabeth Wolf. Their children so far as I know are: Thomas Grifrfith m Sarah Hendrickson; Jesse m Susanna Pilson; Joseph m Lydia Rowe; Eve m Elijah Adam; Rebecca m Philip Heiner; Elizabeth m John Mickle; Margaret m Francis Hammer.

RE: Jeremiah Walter
No, I'm not related. When I went to take photos at Hopewell Cemetery I wanted to photograph all of the headstones that had memorials already built to make the trip worth it. Once I started poking around, saw that Jeremiah was linked to John Walter and saw that he was buried at Grandview, which I live 2 miles from up here in Westmont, so I went over there, too.
