Riley Abner Hughes
This man is my husband's great uncle. Are you quite certain that he was in WWI? He would have been only 15 when America joined this action, and I can find Riley Abner Hughes in WWI files at or Fold3. Do you have any record of the plaque being an officially issued by the US military?

Douglas C. Johnson
Memorial Image
My name is Douglas C. Johnson (Find A Grave #47683562) and I was wondering if I could have your permission to use your photograph of the grave of Douglas Edwin Jirsa at Desert Lawn Memorial Park in Calimesa, Riverside County, California on the FamilySearch Family Tree website. I would of course list it with full credit given to you for the use of the image.
Thank You,

RE: Otto Abbott
Thank you, any help is greatly appreciated.

G. Abbott
Otto Solomon Abbott: # 43389169
His father, John Franklin Abbott was the brother of my great-grandfather, Silas Alexander Abbott.

There are no longer, direct male Abbott descendants in my family.

I am wondering/asking if this line through Otto, has any male descendants who have done a DNA test to find our Abbott origin.

I am stuck at Benjamin Franklin Abbott b. 1812, NC
who m. Caroline Pickett Willis, b. 1817, TN.

This is the grandfather of John Franklin Abbott.

Ben is my 35+ year, brickwall. The hints I have, are left to me by family researchers. No one else is coming up with anything, and no one else is interested in pursuing it past Alabama, where Ben married Caroline. I am told, the father of Ben was Alexander Abbott of NY. No dates/no info.
That Alexander Abbott family was Acadian. That my great-grandfather got his middle name from his grandfather. I see that would be his great-great-grandfather, if he is Alexander.

RE: Keith Dudley Cannon
Wow thank you so much for the obit. 2 things, first is there a way to get an actual copy of like from the paper etc.

To clarify on names. Brode is Keith Dudley Cannon's second wife's previously married last name, she is (June Floellen Varner)then married Mr. Coryell, then Married, Mr George P. Brode, then my Uncle Keith Dudley Cannon. Keith was first married to Rose Etta Fiester and they had 4 kids, Jacqueline Lou Cannon, Jerry Lee Cannon, Bonne Jean Cannon and Leland Leroy Cannon. I know this because they are my cousins I played with. Their dad is my dads brother. My dad is Dale Cannon. It said he was survived by June. June and he never had children. She had children from her first marriage to George P. Brode, two of them, Gerald Brode, Nancy Brode Wheeler, so those are his step children, which to me makes no difference

I have copies of June's marriage to Mr. Brodie if you need proof.

The Mysterious Woman Who Drove By
Thank you so much Yucaipa Valley Genealogical Society for all your work putting this site together. Without your information I would not have found this woman. Mavis Duge Sauls Blanke

Until today 1/12/2014 I had only met her once when I was 15 years old. I was adopted and while sitting at my friends house in the front yard Mavis drove by. I did not know who she was. But I found out in 2011 (a year before you posted this) that she was my birth mother's friend. She drove by us sitting outside she saw me and said "Deborah how's Gertrude?) Due to my hesitation and shocked look she said "I'd sorry, you don't know her" and she sped off. That was the year 1969. One glimpse then and now today with your photo. Mavis must have been a friend of my birth mother's I was adopted at 3 days old. My adopted (my parents) knew of her through my birth mother. I never had a name to put with the face until 2011 when a friend of my parents answered my question. "Who could that have been". Today my search is complete. Much love to have solved a mystery.

Deborah Mathews.....
Former resident of Yucaipa, California from 1954 - 1976. Graduated from Yucaipa Highschool and that is where my parents found my birth mother working for a Dr. in Yucaipa. You mentioned Mavis marrying Edwin 26 JUN 1937 Long Beach CA. My birth mother moved down to Belflower area and she met my birth father Raymond Christopher Ferrel (Pherrel) changed name in Vernon CA.

Thank you for the Introduction
