Joshua Rivers Wynn
I am searching for the parents of Joshua Rivers Wynn born in 1830 in Indiana. He was married to Julia Rose Callum in 1862.
Do you have any information.
He is my 3xs great grandfather.
I would appreciate any information that we could trade. I have been looking for many years for his parents.

Thank You, Jean

We apparently share this gg grandfather. I am curious however about Jesse Milton Romine who you have as 1880-1903. Is that a typo?

I know very little about the Romine family. My first husbands Grandmother is Shirley Gladys the wife of Jess. I do recall her saying there was no connection that she knew of with the other Romines in town. Jess had passed away when i married into the family and i wasn't into genealogy back then. I know his family was from Heavener, Oklahoma and surrounding areas. Ft. Smith Arkansas. I met some of them once at a funeral service in Heavener. The woman buried next to them is his sister Allie Romine Hill. She lived next to them. Most of the info I have is in census ,old papers and stories they would tell. Have you ck'd out I haven't done a lot with the Romine family in awhile it always dead ends if you find a connection please let me know. Good Luck wish I could help more.

RE: William W. Hallam, Co. A, 86th Illinois
Dear Nyree, This email leaves Peoria with prayers that it finds its way to you and finds you doing well. I want to Thank You again for all of the great work you are doing for Find A Grave. I aonly found out about it about five months ago and I can't begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed contributing to the site and how helpful all of the Find A Grave volunteers have been. I have traveled all across the country trying to photograph all of the 86th Illinois graves that I could, but, I always knew there were graves here and there scattered all across the country that I would never see in person nor ever get a picture of. Find A Grave and all of it's volunteers have sure proved me wrong, because Thanks to You and many other volunteers, I have lived to see pictures of about 100 tombstones that I thought that I would never see.
I am 90% certain that the William W. Hallam buried in the IOOF Cemetery is the William W. Hallam who served in Co. A of the 86th. I was hoping that if I ever did see a tombstone for him that it would be a military stone stating such. Unless there is a military stone beside the main marker that I can't see in the picture or at the foot of the grave, I didn't get that lucky. I am currently working with the local library hoping to get a copy of an obituary that I hope will anwser the question. If you do go back to the cemetery and if you get to talk with someone in the office, I would love to know if they anything about William having been a veteran of the Civil War and even have a unit if they do. Regardless, whether we ever definatively solve this problem or not. I want to Thank You for everything that you have done for Find A Grave and for all of the things that you will do in the future for Find A Grave and for all of the people, like myself, that benefit from this website.
May your future be blessed with many beautiful days. (To spend in those cemeteries). I'm hoping to be out in the Princeville Cemetery to photograph some graves tomorrow. I love to be out there with some of the other boys of the 86th. Take care and God Bless!! Baxter

William W. Hallam, Co. A, 86th Illinois
Dear Nyree, What A beautiful stone and what a beautiful picture! I can't Thank You enough for getting the picture of the tombstone of William W, Hallam in the IOOF Cemetery in Ponca City, Oklahoma. But, you are sure correct about that hard to read!!! Can you varify that William was born April 15, 1835? I think I can make out that he died May 24, 1913. I want to make sure I get his correct dates of birth and death on his Find A Grave site. Just by chance, do you remember if there were any Hallam children buried nearby? There are none listed on the Find A Grave website as being buried in The IOOF Cemetery, but, thought that I would ask. It appears that William does not additionally have a government stone recording his service during the Civil War, but I can see that his grave is marked with an American Legion Bronze marker in your picture verifying that he was a veteran. I am going to write to the local library in hopes of coming up with a copy of an obituary.
Thanks for everything that you have done and will do for Find A Grave in the future. Thanks especially for the beautiful picture of the Hallam tombstone. Sincerely, Baxter

Who doyou think you
Be sure and watch Friday nights at 7:00, (on NBC)the "Who do you think you are?" show. It's wonderful. They are taking a break, so it may not be on this week, but keep checking...They trace the ancestors of celebrities. Kids of all ages love it! They are on Facebook if you need to play catch up and see the other episodes.

Thank you very much for taking the time to photograph and post the photo to Perry's memorial. Would you please post it to the memorial of his wife also? We had created a memorial for her but failed to request the photo. The request has now been posted. The memorials are not complete without the photo. Thanks!
