Charlotte Stone Douglass
Please add the following:
The Howard County - MO - Advertiser

Died of bronchitis and consumption, near Bloomfield, Sonoma County, January 4,
1877, Mrs. Charlotte DOUGLASS, aged 59 years. Mother DOUGLASS, whose maiden
name was STONE, was a native of Virginia; she emigrated to the state of
Missouri in the year of 1832, and in 1836 was marred to George Newton
DOUGLASS. In 1854 she came with her husband and family to this State (I wonder
if they meant county??)...she joined the M. E. Church, South, of which she
lived a consistent member...leaves to mourn her loss three sons and three
daughters, her companion having died some three years since.

Also, would you please consider transferring the Find A Grave Memorial to me as Ms. Charlotte is my family member?

Landucci tombstone inscription
Hello Thomas,
Thank you for all your efforts in cataloging gravesites for Find A Grave.

I was doing research on a relative Emile Landucci (Memorial #44401958)which has great information on his wife Dora [nei Foppiano] Landucci and his daughters Etherine {nei Landucci} Giusti and Gloria [nei Landucci] Kinkin.

If you want a picture of his burial site with a listing of his father-, mother-, and sisters-in-law as well as Etherine and Gloria, his daughters, it can be found on the image associated with Find A Grave Memorial #44396322.

Unfortunately Emile's name and date of death(March 20,1968 from SS Death Index)are hidden behind the stone bible with only the letters "E____________C_I" visible. His two daughters Etherine and Gloria have their names in the foreground.

Perhaps you or one of your associates could link Emile's vitals to the monument shown in Memorial #44396322 other genealogists would discover this association for their family trees.

Thanks in advance,
Great grandson of Domenico Foppiano

Thank You
Mr. Lang,

I would like to personally thank you for all that you are doing for the Woodson Family. This is my mothers side of the family. Her mother was Helen Claire Woodson. You helped me tremendously with my family tree. I too am stuck on Emma Stoffell.

RE: Hiram

My grandmother's genealogy book states the life of Hiram, birth (1862), marriage (1884), divorce (1904). She stated that Hiram moved West in 1904 and that he married a Mrs. _____ McKern on 2 Feb 1913 in Redondo Beach, California.

Hiram and his first wife had three children.

I have been able to document most of the information in my grandmother's files. I have detailed information on

I do not have any other information. If you have any information regarding Hiram's second wife, I would appreciate it.

Thank you.

RE: Cornilsen
Yes, she has been located. Oddly enough, she was not buried near my grandfather but rather she buried next to her long life companion in a different cemetery. Growing up I never knew the man that lived with her was her boyfriend. We all thought he was her handyman who slept in the barn. It wasn't until we were adults that my mom finally told us the truth. He wanted to marry her but she didn't want to remarry. She had been married to my grandfather for 32 years before he passed away and then she was with Roluff for 34 years.

RE: Thanks!
No I'm not related. But with a maiden name like Picirilli, I figured working on an Italian cemetery would be fun.

RE: Mills
Hello Mr. Lang: You have the correct information. I was responding from memory without looking at notes or charts. Sophia was the deceased wife and mother of Alex. JLD.

RE: Alex MIlls
Hello again, sorry for the long absence. The only child born to William Mills and Mary Carroll Jones was Susan Acheson Mills Healy of Santa Rosa. Susan Healy is interred at the Catholic Cemetery in Santa Rosa with spouse and two sons. The Alex Mills referenced above was Susans half brother. The beautiful Ida Knapp Mills was Alex's mother.
I hope this helps. Sincerely, Jan L Davis.

Hi Thomas, I'm pretty sure it's the same William E. Foster who married Theresa Seymour after Liz (Addison) Foster died, as a cousin has this recorded in their files. Thanks for checking in!

RE: Haight
I took a ride out to Bloomfield on Friday ( I live in Petaluma), primarily to photograph Enoch Hickman's stone. He is directly related to my first cousin, Linda Butts (1943-2014). While there I took a few more photos and put about 20 on Find A Grave. None are new additions although I did see a couple of stones that were laid flat and upside down. It was too big a chore to flip them. I suspect they have already been documented anyway. Without probing for stones it looks like you have covered it pretty well. Thanks for all your work.
I was hoping to see some signs of a stone for Enoch Hickman's wife, Mary McCaleb Hickman, but no luck - even though she is reported to have been buried there. I only added Enoch Hickman's stone to my family tree at (McGuire123) since Dorri Safford's photo at Find A Grave is already pretty good.

re: Bernette Webb & flowers
Dear Thomas,
I looked at the memorial today and believe I left "flowers" there because there were none. I try to leave "tokens" or "flowers" for children, veterans, relatives and for people I come across without any (I hate to see them empty). Often, I will come back to vet's graves on special holidays and to others for different reasons.
By the way, I love the name Bernette, hadn't heard it before.

RE: Bernadette Webb
Dear Thomas,
Sorry I haven't written back before tonight, but I was in a pretty serious car acc'd on Feb 17th. I had surgery to put my right leg & ankle back together on March 2nd, am being discharged from a care facility on March 23rd and a wonderful friend of mine brought me this lap top to use today. I haven't been on line in 1 whole month and this is the 2nd site I came to! Sorry I'm not related to you that I'm aware of. My parents are Robert Leon and Patricia Jean Taylor Webb. Interesting co-incidence though! I just wanted to leave flowers for your relative with the last name of Webb (I like to do that). We may be related, you never know. One of my memorials is for Robert Leon Webb, Sr., my grandfather. If you enter his name in the box below my memorial, flower, etc. rating you will see who his father was and can trace back from there. It would be interesting if we were related, you just never know. Take care.

RE: Culmer

"Hard" data for William Harrison Culmer has:

- Full name: Baptism certificate, dated 12 Sep 1852 in Kent.

- birthdate: Aug 1852, England, comes from 1900 US Census, Salt Lake City. Davington as his birthplace appears as early as the 1861 UK census for Bermondsey. I've only seen the more precise birthdate of 16 Aug 1852 that's on this memorial page in an LDS certification that descendant Richard Hawke has posted on ancestry.

- deathdate: most obviously, California Death Index, which has him dying 25 Aug 1939 in Sonoma Co. (so one day earlier than the date of death on this memorial page).

Hope this helps!

Webb relatives?
Dear Thomas,
Actually, when I left the cross there it was because there was nothing there which always saddens me. I had no idea that there was a Webb connection... talk about a small world! My Webbs are mostly from Georgia, with many also from North and South Carolina. My dad ended up on the West Coast towards the end of WWII because my grandfather had been promoted to Western Regional Director of the ICC (he'd investigated train accidents during WWII to determine if they were sabotage or not) and my grandparents settled near San Francisco, CA where my grandfather's office was located. My mom went to work for J. Edgar Kaiser who had his shipyards in the San Francisco Bay Area while she waited for my dad, who was in the Army Air Corps, stationed in the Pacific Theater. If not for WWII, I would probably have been an Oregonian, but Hitler changed everything, didn't he? I'd be interested in seeing if I'm distantly related to your Webbs. My grandfather was Robert Leon Webb, Find A Grave#63729000.

Bernadette's daughter?
Dear Thomas,
I just saw your note and am totally puzzled. Can you give me a memorial # please? I tried looking under different names, etc., but have left so many flowers, etc. lately that I need some point of reference unless it is with regards to a memorial that I have or one that I've worked with recently. I also seem to have brain fuzz lately, trying to take care of my memorials w/all too many migraines recently....
Thanks so very much.

Thanks for the photo Tom. Looking at the family genealogy, it would appear your father is Patricia Elaine's brother?? Ken was my second cousin, though I had never met him, I did met his daughter Nina, when we were in Alaska in 2013.
