I searched for the headstones for Harriet, Lydia, Alice, and Emeline Curtis yesterday. There are not any headstones in place for these four girls. I am going to upload an area photo for each one of them.

P.S. I'd put up part of Gregg's biography of WHG if I thought it would be useful. Gregg, however, brings up the issue of William H's Catholicism, and I suspect that this issue is still a sore point with the Gittings family and accounts for the lack of photos and certain site managers' refusal to answer mail.
What do you think? Shall I send it to you?

|wayne||RE: William Gittings|
You're certainly welcome. Thank you for putting up the pic so quickly. As you noticed, it's from Th. Gregg's History of Hancock Co.
Gregg has a similar pic of James Gitting, who I'd guess was William H. Gittings cousin. Gregg doesn't indicate any relationship, but the two men have similar origins.
I find it odd that there are no monument photos for the Gittings family, although in each case that I checked a photo request has been made. Why do you think that is?
I'm not kin to the family, but one of my ancestors is buried in Gittings Cem. and lived close by there in the 1840s and 1850s.
See Find A Grave 80052828. I took the photo about 1993, but I haven't been back to Illinois since then.
Are you from the Hancock Co. area or kin to anyone there?

According to the plaque there are 2 John's buried there and the other John had his last name on the headstone. I took pictures of all the interments that are visable including: Mary Miller, and two Scott Miller's and Mary Curtis Miller.

Well it was sunny when I left. I just kind of got caught in it. You are right though, it is fun no matter what the weather is.

Absolutely. I will send it off to you. I have a couple of different views I will send off as well. It was raining when I took the pics so I took a few so things were easier to see and read.

You are very welcome. It really is no trouble at all. I love doing this(it feels almost like a treasure hunt and knowing that you are helping someone out is a bonus. My family was very blessed by voluteers at Find A Grave who helped us piece together our ancestors when we cam eto a dead end. If there is anyone else you would like me to track down I would be only too happy to help.

I forgot to say, it's fine with me if you want to use the picture for your ancestry. You waited long enough for it to arrive! Shawdau

I'm glad I could find his stone. I'm still going through my pictures from Silent Home. There are probably more of his family's stones among them.

DANILE DEACON MARKHAM IS A GOOD ANCESTOR TO START FROM. MOST MARKHAM'S SEEM TO BE RELATED TO HIM. YES, I BELIEVE OUR LINES DO CROSS. YOUR LINE I THINK GOES SOMETHING LIKE
DANIEL DEACON MARKHAM & ELIZABETH WHITMORE
JAMES MARKHAM & ELIZABETH LOCKE
WILLIAM MARKHAM & ESTOR ARNOLD THIS IS WHERE OUR LINES SPLIT
YOUR LINE IS THE SON JAMES MARKHAM & JANE STERLING AND HIS BROTHER, WILLIAM MARKHAM WHO MARRIED ESTER ARNOLD IS MY DIRECT LINE.
DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?
I DID A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR SELAH MARKHAM AND FOUND SOME ON HIM. WHAT I FOUND IS KINDA BROKEN UP WITH SOURCES INBETWEEN BUT YOU COULD PUT SOMTHING TOGETHER WITH WHAT IS HERE.HERE IS SOME OF WHAT I FOUND:

|MDiggens||RE: I can post|
Yes, They have a book under a canopy so you can look up all the family members and find the grave. He wasn't listed there. I will be going thru Mountain Home again in a couple of weeks and can stop to take another look. The sexton often drives thru on weekends. Maybe he can help. Mtn. Home is a little over 100 miles from here so if you are patient (darn near impossible thing for me!) I promise to try again.

Interesting. I'm getting the messages from FindAGrave just fine but when I try to open from you directly, nothing will come up. Very odd. Anyway, I've deleted the duplicated memorial. If there was something more, perhaps you could post here?

Transfers made. The person who posted the other

|Rhonda||RE: findagrave Lucille Markham|
I'm not sure if I am related unless we are connected further back.
This is what I was able to find so far on Percy Edward Markham born 7 Sep 1892. His parents are: George Lafayette Markham and Margarette Elizabeth Ferguson Markham. Is that correct? When are their birth and death dates and where? If I can go back far enough on Percy we might be related. Can you help me figure out his ancestry?
Yes, I would love any more info you have on Lucille. I was able to locate her parents, I think. Are they Oscar Jackson Maddox and Olive Alberta Garner Maddox? (I have her parents dates)

Thank you Brandie for the corrections and updates on Lucille. I was so happy to hear from you. I may be distantly related but would like to know more about Lucille. Who is her husband and is her husband an ancestor of Stephen Markham? Would you add more to her memorial if I transferred to you?
