|Mary ||James Kingen|
I have been searching for James and Christina Kingen for years. The James Kingen, buried at Brooklyn, Iowa, can't be George Madison Kingen's father. According to the WPA gravestone records, the James Kingen buried at Brooklyn, died in 1880 at the age of 23. My great grandmother is Anne Elizabeth Kingen Jones (George's sister). James, Christina and children were in Decatur county, Iowa in 1860. I wondered if James died in the civil war. The last trace I have of him is in a listing of the Southern Border Brigade. In 1870, Christina was in Mahaska county, Iowa with a J. Wires (not sure of the spelling) and her children, Wm., Anne, Mary, John W. and George. Christina had another daughter with Mr. Wires, as Anne's obit lists an Ella Burke as a half sister. If you have any other info on Christina, please contact me.

I am sure one of these places can give you the contact info for the cemetery and/or suggest someone to clean the headstone.

I will see what I can find out, either a name of the contact info of the caretaker of the cemetery or see if I can find someone to clean the headstone and let you know the info. I am not able to do this, and I know that there is a specific cleaner they use that will not damage the headstone. If you will email me TSLundberg@gmail.com I will reply with what I have found in a few days.

|Nancy Poppin Umland||RE: THANK YOU|
Hi Virginia, which site were you referring to. There are a few sites that aren't being managed and it's frustrating to do all of the work and not have any results. I've contacted Find A Grave many times to have them transfer the memorials to me; also have files uploaded so they can download to a cemetery.

|Nancy Poppin Umland||Delays in edits by Susan|
Hi Virginia, I also have had delays in getting edits done with Susan Fraught. After 30 days if the edits have not been done, you can request to have Find A Grave transfer the memorial to you.
That is what I'm going to do. See my public message on her page.

|Graver Dave||RE: Eli Craft|
I also subscribe to ancestry.com. I posted a photo there of Eli Craft from my grandfather's collection. Then Kirk Sellman restored it to near pristine condition (the man is truly gifted).
My grandfather also had a photo of Barbara Catt but someone in my family misplaced it and I have been hounding them to find it ever since. I hope it is not lost forever. Just thinking about it depresses me.
Kirk told me he bought a book about the Craft family 25 years ago. I would like to purchase a copy of that book for my own collection but have been unable to find one.
I will try to find your tree on ancestry. Feel free to examine mine called "Dearinger/Workman Family Tree.
Thank you, Virginia, for your patriotism and service to our country.
My regular e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

|Graver Dave||Eli Craft|
Thank you for your correspondence, Virginia.
I am unsure whether you are refering to the same Eli Craft (as you know there are several).
Mine lived from 1815-1883 and is buried in the Breon Cemetery in St. Clair County, Missouri.
He and his second wife Barbara Catt are my 2nd Great Grandparents.
Is this the same Eli Craft?
I can provide my contact information once we can establish a relationship.
Please write back and let me know. I've been contacted by only two other people related to that family, but they are descended from his first wife Susan Reel.

|William Roberts||Re: Wallace & Ila Roberts|
Thank you for taking the photos of Wallace and Ila Roberts headstones. Wally was my father's youngest sibling. They had two daughters and only 1 is still living. Being the first male Roberts I had to carry on their father's name William B. (Buckman). My birth mother had a brother named Byron and with Uncle Wally having Byron the B. got switched from Buckman to Byron. Also, their living daughter and I share the same birthday with her being 4 years older. I was always glad that I my middle name is Byron and not Buckman but I have learned that the original immigrant William Buckman, wife Sarah and two daughters sailed up the Delaware in 1681 aboard the ship the "Welcome" with William Penn. I believe one of his daughters married a John Roberts and do not have a clue if that is part of my line. Montgomery and Bucks Counties are overrun with people named Roberts.

|Schatzie Moore||Family info|
Thank You Virginia for the updated info on Jeannette Barr! Have it all added and I have her linked to her parents! Anything else you would like added let me know! She is not family to me, so if you would like her transferred? I haven't transfered yet, but I am game! I recensused the Sulphur Lick cemetery, because the list that our local Genealogical society had, was lacking, last done in 1981. I REALLY need to type a new list up for them, because they are just so wonderful to work with!

You may use my photos for your family records. If you post them on another website such as ancestry.com, I would like for you to give me credit. Thanks for asking, most people just copy and post.

|Nancy (Clayton) Phillips||RE: ADAMS|
Virginia - I tried to clean up the grave a little today before I took the picture - you might want to contact the cemetery and ask to have the stone raised especially on Harold's side - the city of Des Moines maintains Laurel Hill and the budgets have been cut but they are pretty good about working on maintaining stones that are requested. Hope this helps.

Notice that you have had Joseph's wife transferred to you. If Joseph is a relative, I would be happy to transfer him to you so you can add any additional information that you find to his memorial. He is not related to me.
Thanks for the birth and death dates for Joseph Taiclet. I have added the info to his memorial.

|Leilani OReilly||Auther Tice|
I see you are the contributor for Auther and Vivian Tice. I searched the Pleasant Hill cemetery and found neither Auther Tice or Vivian's tombstone. I found records showing Auther buried at the White Rose Cemetery in Roger Mills County OK. I cannot locate Vivian. I went to Beaver County museum and looked up there cemetery records and they don't show Luther and Vivian buried at Pleasant Hill either.
