William Gibbs 1871-1957
Greetings from Ohio. I am helping someone join the DAR and she is related to this William Gibbs you have a memorial for. I need to use his information for her application and I need to use the obit. In order to use it I need to know what newspaper name and date it was posted for her source information. Can you tell me that information or where you got this obit so I can obtain that information? This will be so helpful for her!
Thanks for all that you do!

Just want to say Thank You
Hello Sharon I wanted to be the 1,000th message I noticed it had been about 2.5 years since I left one before.

All I want to say thanks for adding so much info on find a grave im sure the future generations will appreciacte it for sure but they probably will never know on how time consuming it was for you they probably think it is automaticlly on the internet and no leg work had to been done by volunteer's.
But im sure they will be paying for the info instead.
The reason I left a message was because I just added some photo's to some Criswell's in Jackson Co IL at the Elkville cemetery and saw yuo ahd the memorial's it looks like the mother died 9 days after the son did ok they both was pretty old.
Find A Grave Memorial# 134604322

The obituary for John Freeman Rice whose memorial you created lists no source information for the obituary. Do you know what paper it came from, date and possibly page number? Thanks.

Catherine Riegel
Catherine Witman married Solomon Riegel in Jackson Co., Ohio on 11 Nov. 1852 (Marriage Bk. C, p 113). She is listed in the household with her father, Henry Whitman on the 1850 Jackson Co., Census. Records of the Upper Saucon Church in Lehigh Co., PA (then Northampton) record the marriage of Heinrich Withman to Catherine More (usually rendered Mory) on 28 Dec. 1808.

According to family tradition, William Frederick Doley, also buried at Webber Campground, was sent to Illinois to live with an aunt and uncle after his father, George Doley, died in Scioto County, Ohio in 1868. His mother was Catherine Nagel, daughter of John D. and Mary Whitman Nagel, aka Anna Maria Witman. In fact, William went to a great uncle and aunt. I can prove the relationships with greater space, but the move with to live with an aunt and uncle is tradition.

Memorial 112536037 for Oscar M Edwards
Have you actually seen the grave of Oscar M Edwards listed in this memorial.

I ask because the date of birth and death are listed as unknown. While I do have dates for this individual, they came from another researcher and I've not been able to confirm those dates.

Daniel Halterman
Hello. Daniel H. Halterman (Memorial# 118579584) had a son Thomas (Memorial# 115240098). The only documentation I can offer (scanty as it is) is the 1920 census of Williamson County, Illinois which lists 34-year old Thomas after 63-year old Daniel. Thomas was my maternal grandfather, and my mother often mentioned his parents, Daniel and Sarilda Jane. If you find this satisfactory, I would appreciate it if you would link Daniel and his son Thomas. Thank you.

Fred L. Hocking, 1935-2012
Fred's information says he was born on 8 Oct 1935 on the Find A Grave information. His tombstone has two numbers for his day of birth and I imagine it says 28 Oct 1935. His obituary which is given on this site says he was born 28 Oct 1935. I hope you can make this change. Thank you. Judith Rittenhouse

Fern Stubbe Slow
Hi there,

I think it's possible that Fern Stubbe Slow, Find A Grave Memorial# 128080140, was the sister of my paternal grandfather's mother. My family has so little information about my great-grandmother (Estella Mae Stubbe-Schaffer, probably born in Hardin county, IL in 1884) and I am trying to find more. I don't even know where she's buried. Would you mind telling me where you found the information about Fern's birth and parents' names? Was it from a death certificate? Any tidbits of information would be greatly appreciated!

I believe that if you do a little searching you will find that the parents linked to Eliza Jane (Abney) Kinnaman are not her parents. Her parents were John and Mary (Brooks) Abney. Her mother died in 1854 and is bur in McCay Cem Hamilton Co IN. We are not sure just when her father died but sometime after 1870. Please check. Her mother (Mary) Jane is memorial 10983525. Her father is quite poss bur in that cem but to date nothing is found.

Thank you
