Are you still adding to your memorials? I have sent you information that has not been updated. If you are not interested in updateing, will you transfer those in Muscatine to me? I will care for them.

Iowa abolitionists
Greetings. During the course of my research to nominate Oakdale Memorial Gardens in Davenport to the National Register of Historic Places, I have come across some additional Iowa abolitionists for your virtual cemetery.

RE: May O. Orcutt
No, I can't say if the Orcutt family is related, but I do have many family members on my three sides in the Durant Cemetery where the Orcutts are buried. I do work closely with the cemetery board to get all the burial information correct, the plots numbers added, and who is related who. If you would like to transfer the Orcutt members to me, they will be very well taken care of. May O. Orcutt, may be on the gravestone, but some records show Mary Olive Orcutt. Perhapes space on the stone only had room for just May O. Just a guess. Thanks for you reply. Dennis

I added more Whittlesey's to Oakhill Cemetery that were included on John's family monument that you may find interesting.

RE: Samuel Finley Anderson
Thanks for sending the link for the gravestone photo--I appreciate it!

Samuel Finley Anderson
I tried to request a photo of the stone for this memorial, but this is what was sent to me:

The general problem they reported is:
Cemetery office has no record of this person
They also reported, specifically:
could this be the person?
Finley Anderson (First_Last)
Regiment Name 3 Iowa Infantry
Side Union
Company G
Soldier's Rank_In Pvt
Soldier's Rank_Out Pvt
Alternate Name Samuel F./Anderson
Film Number M541 roll 1

I don't quite understand it, as there is clearly an alternate name listed, which matches the name you have on the memorial. I think the Company varies, but otherwise, don't you think it's the correct individual? Find A Grave removed my photo request, but I put it back out there, with the above info.

RE: Findleys
Hmmm . . . I think my 4-great-grandfather was a half-brother of Rev. Samuel Findley's father, Judge Samuel Findley. Whew. It almost hurt to figure that out. SO, that means we are completely unrelated, right? Pleased to make your acquaintance, anyway. Thanks for sending the link to the Rev.--the info there is interesting.

Added by HJ on Apr 23, 2012 6:18 PM

RE: Findleys
No, I do not think we have been in contact before. I'm unable to determine to which Mary and Samuel Findley you are connected. There are quite of few of both names in the Findley genealogy I have, but I can't seem to find a Mary that matches those dates.

Added by HJ on Apr 20, 2012 4:52 PM

Wondering if you are any relation to the Findleys of Ohio . . . Also wondering, if you had any luck communicating with Wendell Chestnut . . .

RE: James and Rhoda North
Daniel--you're welcome. I enjoy sponsoring. My line comes through Nancy North Booth 1787-1818. Do you know much about the North children? I'm looking to gather any family history or stories about the daughter of Cyrus (1786- ) and Nancy North Booth. Mary B Booth (1808-1830). I'm also tracking the Burnham name.

RE: John David Walker
Thank you Dan.

JD Walker is John David Walker. Served in the Union in out of Emporia, Kansas. He ended up being a Captain. I have some service records of his company served in, etc. just can't recall by memory.

I would love to update the memorials if you start them. I just dont know how to link relatives but I will learn. Thank you for the help.

I will have to dig into my tree to find out about the Rankins. They are family on Johns wife's side, Catherine Maderville (Rankin) Walker.

Im gonna have to take a trip to Crawfordsville this summer and also I have a lot of Walkers in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania which is Johns father and grandfather old stomping ground.

God Bless.

Thanks so much for the photos of the Schoonover gravestones at Durant Cemetery. I don't think I thanked you earlier when you added them - Oops! I really appreciate your work and it is so nice to learn of my family and see their resting place. Sharon Key

RE: Whittlesey, Eliphalet & Comfort
Yes, I'm related through their son, Federal Whittlesey. He died at a young age in Stockbridge, and his wife, Caroline Churchill Whittlesey and my great-grandmother, Frederica, left Stockbridge for Rochester, NY, with other members of the family. They are all buried at Mt. Hope Cemetery in Rochester. [See Find-A-Grave for Mt. Hope]

Whittlesey, Eliphalet & Comfort
Thank you so much for taking this photo for me. I have a number of people buried in that cemetery..Eliphalet & Comfort's son, Federal Whittlesey (supposedly buried in the Curtis plot); Samuel Churchill and Elnathan Curtis Sr. I have visited Stockbridge on a couple of occasions, but before I had a determination to photograph all my ancestors' graves. Thanks for doing this for me.
