Greg-Old Mulkey Cemetery
Some of us have started Facebook groups derived from the Franklin County Genealogy group. I have the Old Mulkey Cemetery which I will be adding some things to Find a Grave. Wondering if I cold get your permission to use some of the info you have posted such as info about Caleb Mulkey on the Fb group. Here is the link if you'd like to join. Im from Franklin county and have gone out and taken many pics myself.

Please respond to my email

Thank you
Karla Mohr

RE: John Strike
No - I am transcribing Wisconsin Deaths & Burials, Walworth County, Wisconsin 1867-1907 onto Find A Grave and his record was in that listing. I just try to pass along any information that is contained in those records, just in case the owner of the memorial does not have that information.

RE: Frank McCorkle
Sorry Greg I did not keep a copy of your original request. Not sure where my confusion came in, but I have added Frank to his father Charles.

Hi Greg

WOW! I didn't expect you to transfer Jonathan over to me. I don't remember asking either. was it just a coincidence or what? I was just working on this family and noticed that I was maintaining the memorial, which is fine with me. Just shocked that's all. Thank you so muc!

Marie Lacass
Hi, I was at St. Mary's Cemetery in Kaukauna today to photograph some relatives' headstones. I noticed that you had a request in for Marie Lacass and any other Lacass headstones in the cemetery. I didn't find Marie's headstone, but I did find a 4-sided headstone for: 1) Joseph Lacass (1847-1937); 2) Mandy (d. Apr 8, 1899) Aged 11 yrs 6 days/Annie (d. May 12, 1903) Aged 21 yrs 4 mos 18 days; 3) one blank side; 4)one side indecipherable. It may be that the indecipherable inscription is Marie's. I posted Joseph's photos to Joseph's Find A Grave memorial. If you create memorials for Mandy and Annie, I'll post the corresponding photos. E-mail me if you'd like to see the photo of the indecipherable side. At the time of day I was taking the photo, it was backlit. Maybe it would be easier to read in better light. ~ Mary

I'm not related to Thomas McCool. I left that virtual flower several years ago; I have a friend with the last name McCool and probably flowered a lot of "McCool" memorials, just because. Thanks.

RE: Ike Clayton
I found out who you were talking about, I left flowers on his grave, on memorials they have his first name which is Isaac Joab Clayton. I have been working on this family for years. My 5th Great Grandmother was Nancy Elizabeth Clayton, she was the daughter of Philip Clayton born abt. 1753 in North Carolina. His father was William Clayton, the brother of your Grandfather who was Stephen Clayton who married Mary Dennum. Their father was Stephen Clayton, Sr. born abt. 1703 in Richmond County, Virginia, he died June 27, 1784 in Stokes County, North Carolina. So we are distant relatives, I am probably the age of your grandparents. I have two children 31, and 47.

I clicked on your link, and saw you have a photo of Alex and Archibald Campbell, but the pictures are not showing up. I really want to see them, I too have Alexander, Alex and Archi Campbell,s, on my mothers side. Hope this makes sense, it is way too early in the morning for me

RE: Emma and Matilda Schantini
I put it there because Emma is probably there but has no plaque. I do this to denote where they are buried and that no plaque is present rather than no picture at all. I can remove it if you like.

Greg, I don't have a lot of info on the family on this side. My late uncle was doing the research on this side, while I did research on my mothers side, and his daughter has been doing it since his death.
I have Lear Tibbs and William Henry Geesaman as Mary parents, (the family bible says Lear's name was Leah) (no I don't have the bible, my cousin does) and Lear/Leahs mother was Sarah Wade, July 1810-1860 Monongalia, VA, her father was John Tibbs, 1794-?
Sarah Wade's father was Daniel Wade, 1780-1837, and mother Darcus Robins, ?-1837. Got this information from my uncle several years ago.
If you are on, you can look up Doty-Arnold & Biggs-Letts Family Tree and see what has been done so far by my cousin. I will see if Jill is still working it, and if so, if she will get in touch with you. You can contact me at

RE: George Washington Wyan
Thank you for your message.

I'm afraid at this time, I am unable to help with your search for a photo of Corilla Anthony McCool. I will definitely keep your inquiry and should I run into anything I think might help you in your search, I'll be in touch. Linda
