RE: Martha Ann Richardson
I have posted John William Rusk's obituary to his memorial page. Let me know when you've looked at it so I can delete it. It says he and Martha married in 1897, she would have been 20 yo. It looks like William H. Rusk was married to a different Martha?

I have also posted the obit for Olive Rusk (George H.'s wife). It says she and George married in 1910. I haven't been able to locate an obit for George, William, or Martha in the Hutchinson News.

I don't know if these 2 obits will help you sort things out. I don't know anymore.

Roselia Hess

Not at this point.

As part of the Hess research I'm doing, I'm also researching Fellows aka Feller aka Fellers. I'm particularly interested in Jacob Fellows d. 1836, Jacob Fellows d. 1840 and Barbara Haidley or Heidley Fellows d. 1844-1850. I suspect they are buried in either Carley Mills or Dutch Hill and their graves are no longer marked. I've walked both cemeteries several times over the years and haven't found them. Frederick Hess and Catherine Fellows Hess are buried in Dutch Hill with a few other Fellowses. The widow of Jacob Fellows (1840) is buried in Carley Mills as Mary Tinkham (possibly sister of Frederick Hess). For these reasons my hunches lean toward these 2 cemeteries.

If you ever find "paper" burial records that include any of these people, I would appreciate it if you'd let me know.

Thank you!

Roselia Hess

Thought you'd like to know Roselia did die in Jerry, NY. But it is in Oswego county, a hamlet in the town of Hastings or Constantia. She was the second wife of John Hess, born in the town of Warren, Herkimer County, NY on Nov. 16, 1811. John died August 8, 1883 in Hastings. He is inscribed on one side of the same gravestone marking Roselia's grave - John Hess, D. Aug. 8, 1883, 73 years. John was the brother of my 3rd great grandfather.

I was unable to find Charles Drake in Indiana to match him with Mabel as you requested. Do you have a memorial number for him.

Malisa Elvira Carly

In going through my photos taken at Carley Mills cemetery, I thought I'd let you know I came to a different interpretation of Malisa's age at death. I believe it may have been 4 years, 4 months, 20 days. When I looked at the ones in her date of death (Feb. 11, 1838), they seemed to be distinctly different from the numeral in years with a "flair" at the top of the numerals that is not there in the years numeral. Do you see this difference, or is it just me?

I was able to transcribed the quote at the bottom of the stone: "Sleep on sweet child, and take thy rest, God called thee home He tho't it best.".

RE: Have Son Listed as Husband
The Carley's were a founding family in Mass. Slowly moving westerly to Wisconsin. They Were in Jefferson, Delaware County New York, moving North to Otsego County (The Township of Otsego) just west of Otsego Lake at the north End. Cooperstown is located at the south end of the Lake. They moved to North of Syracuse New York in Oswego County spending time in Mexico,New York, Hastings, New York, and Parish, New York. My Great Grandfather was born in Mexico, New York. My Grandmother was born in Elmhurst, Wisconsin and came back to New York state around 1911 ending in Westford, New York at 104 years of age. My tree is a public tree have a look. I have a noted cousin (19th Cousin 2 X removed) who just had her 90th yesterday, Any guesses?

I have her in my tree as well however her husband also named Samuel according to the records I found was born in Cooperstown,Otsego County, New York in 1794, and I also found that he died as a result of the War of 1812 as is listed in your Find A Grave account.

Edits for Jack Dempsey
Thank you for the edits for Jack Dempsey buried in Fairlawn Burial Park in Hutchinson, KS. I have a couple of questions about his parents: his obituary says he is the son of Joseph Martin and Mary A. McGriff Dempsey, and it says his surviving sisters are Clara Chong, Juanita Caubre, and V. Beatris McKeehen. It doesn't seem that the Dempseys you've submitted are his parents. Thoughts?

Glad to transfer him. I also managed to get Debbie linked to her parents. Good people.

George Vought - 39709183
Hi Brenda,

I have processed your suggested edits. My bad, I never noticed I hadn't put location data in for my great great grandparents!

The best I had seen for a birthplace for George was a census entry that said 'Rhineburg' and of course there are more than a few 'Castles on the Rhine'. So I was always at a loss.

If you could, and I really would appreciate it, drop me a line at TomVote at I'd love to know anything you could provide on George.

Thanks so much,
Tom Vought

Edits sent to Contributor Sara Kennedy
So sorry, Brenda, I inadvertently hit the process button by mistake approving edits I received from you 25 Oct & 9 Nov. I wanted to contact you personally because I need further information from you on the edits you submitted to me. I left info on the memorials as I originally submitted them until I hear further from you.

Re: Catherine Cornelia Carr Farrar, would you share where you found the information stating her birthdate of 1805? Immediate family members have not been able to find any documentation on her after many years of research. We would be thrilled to know of your source.

Re: Sally Henry Farrar couldn't have died in 1850 as she appears in the 1855 census records. This information is on the memorial bio. However, you noted she died on 29 Aug which is pretty specific so knowing your source would be helpful for those of us researching the Farrar genealogy.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Raymond Felix Bergeron
Re: Felix and Raymond Bergeron grave information

Raymond was not a sibling of Felix - see these grave entries:

Notice the birth date of Raymond (after the death date of his 'listed' mother).
Raymond was Felix's son.
Felix had 2 or 3 children; I would have to look it up - and was married to the oldest Poirer girl - whose name I would also have to look up.

RE: West Rainbow Cemetery
Thanks for responding. No, I'm not related to the Drakes, nor do I have any connection to Wilson County. I just noticed that the West Rainbow Cemetery didn't have a map attached and wanted to add one. I didn't know it was going to be such a mystery!

I live in western Washington State, so I'm about as far away as you.

Carley Mills

I noticed on a genealogy forum post from 2002 you mentioned that you have the entire inventory of Carley Mills cemetery. I'd be interested in the Alsever's who are buried there.

RE: Wilbur Alsever at Carley Mills Cemetery

I found a newspaper article (see below) from 1937 which states: "YOUTH DIES Wilbur Alsever, 19, of Hastings, died early last night in CrouseIrving Hospital of natural causes".

It appears his birthdate was transposed (1819 instead of 1918). Thanks for your tip, I've corrected the birth date.

Hi, You made a suggestion on my Hester Beauchamp Memorial that her name was Hetty Hester Beauchamp. Hetty though is actually a nickname for Hester. I corrected the Memorial by adding Hetty under the nickname category. Thank you for catching this. Eric
