Thanks so much for re-taking the photograph of Harvey's headstone. It confirmed his parents were Silas and Angeline. Great use of chalk!

On 18 Sep 2010 you added a photo of Harvey's stone, died 9 Mar 1897. Do you by chance have in your records who he is the "Son of...."? Looks like first name is Silas. I'm wondering if second name is Angeline Virginia.
Wakenda Cemetery, Hardin, Ray, Missouri
Thanks for your help.

RE: Faris Family
I went in to send it again, but they say it is in the edit section already. I wonder if it is in the edit section that is under your name and not on the entry for the marker? If you find it there, please let me know, usually I get a email that is has been processed. Thanks again, Sylvia Trotter

Thank you I will try there. I had tried with one of the lookup volunteers on one of gen websites and not much luck with them.

Lizzie Wolf #70023689
Hi Billie,

I looked at the MO. D/C #22592 and think the way it is written her dads last name could be Goedeke instead of Gedeke.

Dau. Lillian Wolf Kruse #128008863, obituary shows her parents as Ernest and Louise Goedeke Wolf

Dau. Malinda Wolf Lightfoot, #22085322, obituary shows her parents Ernest H. & Louise "Lizzy" Goedeke Wolf.

Dau. Eleanor Wolf Weise, #33612442, obituary shows her parents Ernest H. & Elizabeth "Lizzy" Goedeke Wolf.

Therefore I think her name was Louise Elizabeth "Lizzie" Goedeke Wolf.

Thanks for reviewing this for me.

Lizzie #70023689

In the obituaries of two of Ernest & Lizzie's children lists her name as Louise (Lizzie or Lizzy) Goedeke. Do you know if her last name could be spelled Goedeke?

Thanks for any information you have on this.

Hillipina Ewald #72194739
Hi Billie,

I am writing about the memorial for Hillipina Ewald, buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery, Norborne.
Could it possibly read Phillipina? It looks like a shadow by the H. I have been looking for Phillipina Pieron Ewald.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Thank You
Ms King,

Thank you for the photograph of one of my ancestor's headstone. I appreciate the time and effort you contributed to this task of reconnecting my past. I hope I can return the favor one day.

Find A Grave Memorial# 62177464
Look like you posted a photo taken by you in 2010 @ Hill Cemetery Carroll County Mo.

The stone appeared to be toppled and worn. From the image posted I can not make out the unit designation and something about Philippines.

I also put in a request for his parents stones which should be near by.

This is my Great Grand Uncle, had no knowledge of him being in the Spanish American War. Can not find any rosters of Missouri units he was on. And from what I can find none of the Missouri units ever deployed overseas. And based off Date of Death I doubt he was in the Philippines Insurrection.

Thanks for your work.

Hi, Billie:

I came across your reply to my friend Sue Bennett's question and thought I'd offer some information.

Benjamin HATHAWAY (1699-1762) and his Unknown first wife were my 5th-great-grandparents. A marriage in either MA or NJ has yet to be found but they likely married before 1720 as that is when first son, Gershom, was born. His birthplace is not known and could be MA but is, most likely, NJ.

Benjamin and "whatshername" had nine children, at least eight of which were all born NJ:

Benjamin, 1722
Rebecca, 1724
John, 1726
Joseph, 1728
Eleazar, 1731
Thankful, 1735
Jonathan, 1738
Benoni, 1743

Whatshername died between 6 Nov 1743 (Benoni's birth) and 14 Mar 1744 when Benjamin remarried widow Elizabeth (Mehurin) Crossman in Morristown, NJ. She brought her three children, Theophilus, Betty, and Joshua Crossman, to the marriage.

Benjamin and Elizabeth went on the have their own children:

Clemens, 1745
Abigail, 1746
Zephaniah, 1747
Job, 1748
Keziah, 1750

Hope this information is of some help to you and your research.

RE: Re: Headstone & Cemetery Photo's
Thanks so very much for use of photos. I think that transfers would be better taken care of by someone closer related than I am. I really appreciate your offer, it is very kind and generous of you. wrmcferrin
