RE: Thomas Simpson
According to local historian pages, deaths from Milliken's Bend were reinterred at Vicksburg, so I checked there first. Yes, he is buried there - Memorial #130746875. Memorial was added in 2014 with d.o.d. of 6/6/1863 -- where pension records reflect he died 8 Jun 1863 (confirmed in (3) separate places within multiple pages of records). Would you work with the memorial manager to combine the memorials, so all of the detail & links you have on your memorial stay in place? Thanks again for adding the memorial and your help!

RE: Thomas Simpson - #117007041, Burial Unknown
I am pleased that you made the Memorial. I don't normally link to unknown burials, but this is a different. If his body was returned to Moscow, I'll find the record. If he's buried in LA, it'll be a little more difficult. Did your ancestor survive the war ... or also died at Milliken's Bend?

Thomas Simpson - #117007041, Burial Unknown
Julie: Thomas Simpson died 8 Jun 1863 in the Van Buren Hospital, Milliken's Bend, Madison Twp., Louisiana a day after the Milliken's Bend engagement. I will check the IN cemetery transcription. If he is not buried there -- he is buried in LA. Full Widows Pension 38.881, Certificate 28672 File available:

RE: Hungate
Sorry, where is it that you can add an obit to a memorial from the edit tab? And will it go to the Bio section? I don't want it to be posted under the photo section. Just asking, kinda new to this part! Thanks for your help. Linda

RE: Francis O. Gahimer
Thanks for the info on Francis, Julie. I will go ahead and delete the memorial from Greenlawn. Have a great day.

Francis O. Gahimer
Hi, Julie.

I got your message that you do not believe that Francis is buried at Greenlawn Cemetery in Johnson County Indiana. There is a stone there with both his, and his wife Sarah, but he has no death date, so that makes sense that he may have remarried after his wife, Sarah, died, and moved to Jefferson County. Do you feel pretty certain that is him in Jefferson County? If so, I will delete his memorial at Greenlawn. Please let me know what you think.

I hope you don't mind that I have transferred the memorials for Mabel E. Rader Smith, her husband and son to your care. Obviously they are part of your family and not mine. Thank you for your contributions to find a grave.

I have been researching my family ancestry for about three years now. Ethel Mae Borton Gahimer was the daughter of my great grand aunt Minnie Johnson Borton. Minnie passed away in 1932 when her children were at a young age. The 1930 census shows Ethel's name as Ella Mae but in the 1940 census after Carl Borton remarried it show her name to be Edith Mae. I am returning to Orange and Lawerance County Indiana this summer and will try to find birth records for all of Carl and Minnie,s children.

Saw where you managed her memorial. I happened upon an old daguerreotype of her and her sister. Uploaded to Find a Grave.

Are you related to Peggy Gahimer?
