Milton F. Forbis
I added a death certificate to the memorial for Milton Forbis.

Some additional details:

- Place of death (Susan's Nursing Home in Trenton, Grundy Co, MO)
- Date of death is different than memorial (Jun 26, 1955)
- Mother's maiden name (Sarah E. Lovern)
- Informant (Walter Forbis...son? brother?)
- Burial date (Jun 28, 1955)

Hope this helps some-
Corri Ackerman

Mila and Mylonnia are one and the same? She's the mother of the children?

Brokaw, Maple Grove, Frewsburg, NY
All I can say is WOW. I just added them yesterday from the cemetery records. Someone had a photo request for Brokaw in a different cemetery, and I tend to look for the same names in other cemeteries, just in case. The thing with these Brokaws is as far as I can tell, there is just one big stone with Brokaw on it. I did not see any individual markers around it. So when I was in the cemetery records yesterday, I ran across the name and decided to add them. Will get a photo of the stone next time I'm up that way. As far as the dates go, records have been wrong, but I would have no stone to say different. So will make your corrections. Did you know they were there?

I've been photographing stones in the Germonds Cemetery in New York.
The dates for both the birth and death of Mr. Evans differ significantly from the memorial you created.
I added the photo but did not edit the dates.

I also added photos for a number of Brokaws buried there.

RE: Brokaw in Leiding Cemetery
Dennis - consider it done. I've got the same percentage with my maiden name Rivinius. Anywhere in the world, you're related. Ancestor changed name in 1770 :-)
Have a good day

Hi Dennis. I just checked my edits and found you've already found the entries I just put in. I'm not related to them, just took photos of all the grave markers in that cemetery. If you would like me to transfer them, please let me know.

Thank You, I'm sure I have made alot of Mistakes. The Old Cemetery Records just have Field (Private) Cemetery as the name, which I could not find on Find A Grave

Jessie (Brokaw) Ward Family
Do you have any information regarding
Jessie Brokaw Ward 1876-1954, Reed Ward 1877-1950,
Abraham Brokaw 1836-1917, Tabitha Brokaw 1836-1917, Jessie and Reed were my great-great grandparents and Abraham and Tabitha were my 3rd great Grandparents. Do you have any info on Reed especially I don't know much about him other than birth and death dates, do you know who his parents are? , I know he is not a Brokaw, but he was married to one. They were all from the Senecaville Ohio/Guernsey & Noble counties area.

I updated Mr. Brokaw for you. I have searched for Military records on him, and did not find any, as that would solve his "unclaimed staus". would you have any info otherwise? thank you
