Hess/Ranz branch
Hello Beth! I am a cousin on the Hess/Ranz Branch. Rose Marie Hess/Walter Leslie Ranz 1st cousin line
Robert Frank Ranz/Adeline Thackeray 2nd cousin line
Leonard and Jill direct 3rd Cousin line.
I am hopeful to find some cousin from the Hess line. There are not very many of us that have connected yet. Caroline Manz and George Hess are my Great Great Grandparents. I thought I would contact you since you are connected to the Thackeray branch. I even have things in my mothers scrapbook from Rose Marie Hess Ranz. Any help in contacting anyone from the Hess branch would be great!! My email is
Thanks so much,
Suezy O'Brien House

Sorry, I meant second wife Abigail; so we are from the same line it seems!

RE: Cushing Bowker
Hi Beth, thank you for responding!

I am a descendant of Cushing and his last wife Abigail Ryder. However, I was wondering if you had any information on his first wife, Sarah Marston. I suspect she may be related to Samuel Marston, another ancestor who married the daughter of Cushing and Abigail.

Thanks for the photos, Beth! I just left a message regarding Rosa Lee Lusk Cain buried at the Freedom Cemetery. She was the dau. of Adoniram J. Lusk and Sophronia A. Brown. Of this,I am positive. My great grandmother, Virginia Mae, was a sister to Rosa.

Acacia Park Cemetery Photo Request
Hello - I work near the Acacia Park Cemetery, where you have a photo request, and I can easily stop by anytime. However the cemetery office has a policy to only allow me two location lookups per visit, so with over 100 requests, I am making graves with plot information my priority. If you would like me to add a photo, I would ask that you call the office (773-625-7800) for a location and add it to the listing. Thanks!

Bowker Family
Hi Beth, I'm interested to know what information you have on the Bowker family. I am a descendant of Cushing Bowker through his third wife Sarah Marston, both buried in the Waterloo cemetery. Thanks!
