Thank you so much for that lovely update for William Davis. Please by all means update any of my memorials equally. I appreciate your time and effort. I just haven't had time to do much as I recently have moved again. Barb

Thank you for the headstone photos for Jonathan Combs Conover. He is my 4th great grandfather. I appreciate your help, because I am not sure I will ever make it to Illinois to see his final resting place.
Thanks again!

Thank you so much for the transfer, Debra!

Thanks Debra for entering the Nancy A. Weddle (wife of R. J. Weddle) in the Sheldon's Grove Cemetery. I am still looking hard at these Schuyler county Weddles and trying to make the connection to our George A. Weddle.

Remember, he was the one found in 1870 with William Riley Weddle, but with your help, we determined that he probably wasn't the son of William Riley Weddle.

I am wondering if he is the son of Randolph Jackson Weddle, whom I believe is the brother of William Riley Weddle.

The patriarch and matirarch of this family are Amos Weddle and his wife, Nancy Carlock Weddle Mitchell.

RE: Schoenhut Headstones
I did get photos from the cemetery, but they were not as nice as the ones you took. So that's why I was so delighted to see yours. It really was so nice to have my family want to share in this project. Thank you for your offer to redo them when things are blooming, but they're pretty excellent as is.......I'll let you decide what's best.

Many, many thanks,

Schoenhut Headstones
Thanks so much for the updated photos of George, Catherine and Ernest headstones after the restoration. I was very surprised and pleased to see your updated photos.

I got the family to donate to the restoration fund and the project is now complete. I hope one day to visit in person, but your pictures are the next best thing.

Thank You, thank you,

RE: Thomas Holt
Hi Debra!
Mara and I acquired the last 2 copies of a Holt family book written by Kathryn Sims, a Holt family member. She died before completing it and it was finished her sister. It was intended to chronicle the lives of her great grandparents John Wesley Holt and his wife Sarah Lucy Vinton. In it, it has Blackburn as his middle name, we finally found out what the initial B. was. You should see this book! It's over 2" thick. Took a lot of digging and persistence but we found out about it and managed to have the last 2 copies mailed to us from a family member of hers. What a find!
We recently lost my aunt Darlene. I joined findagrave and entered her memorial #128420179.
Hope you are doing well and good to hear form you.

Florence C. Blandin
Ready for some confusion? The lady I was thinking of, from the Chatsworth Train Wreck, was Florence C. Blandin, Find A Grave # 5592596. She is buried at Harker's Corner Cemetery (her daughter, Ida Beatrice Stein, died at age 26 in 1908 and is buried at Trivoli Cemetery). Ida and her sister, Bertha survived the train wreck.

In Sugar Tree Grove Cemetery (Warren County) is another War of 1812 veteran, Aleri Rodgers. His memorial says he had a brother, Ariel Rodgers, who also served but no one has made a memorial for the War of 1812 Ariel Rodgers yet - the memorial that exists is for an Ariel from a younger generation.

I think Brown was the surname of the 1812 vet at Monmouth, but I can't convert my map of the cemetery with sections A, B, C, etc. to the numbered sections used on the gennet index for the cemetery that's online. I'll just have to go take a picture of it! Good Night.

Benjamin Wyss at Springdale
WOW - really admiring your memorials! One thing I noticed, looking at pictures of stones from Springdale, Benjamin Wyss's stone says he was born in 1886. That doesn't mean the stone is right.

I can't believe how many victims of the Chatsworth Train Wreck (not Benjamin, but other memorials I've done) are buried at Springdale. There's also one buried at Trivoli Cemetery.

William Blundell, 86th Illinois
Just wanted you to know I got your message on William Blundell. If you're home, I hope you had a good trip. If you're not home, I hope you are having a good time and have a safe trip home. I think spring might finally be here, but, I still wouldn't be surprised to see a little snow fly. Take care and thanks for all you have done and for all you are doing. Baxter
