RE: Andrew Wares
You are so welcome for the photos. Yes, they were both on the same stone, and I didn't remember that Arthur was on the request list also until I got home. So, I don't know about his little sister's marker, but will try to stop back and check at a later time. I did not see the Kendalls on the directory so disregarded them. Sorry!

RE: J. Harvey Hutchings
Hi, Mike,

I hope you also have a good holiday. With the weather we've been having, though, it seems as if the holiday should be at least the 4th of July rather than Memorial Day!

Love your cat! His expression reminds me very much of one of my cats.

Take care.

RE: Joseph and Harriet Hutchings
Thanks for the reply, Mike!

I can certainly appreciate your situation. If, by any chance, you're in contact with those other family members, please let them know I am willing to transfer the memorials. I firmly believe that folks should be with family, or at least someone who knows them, and not with a stranger. It's also my personal goal to die with no memorials other than those for close family members which will be passed on to someone else in the family.

Thanks, again, for your contributions to find-a-grave!

Take care.

RE: Pierre Payet
Thank you so much Forestier for the information on the Payet family which is on my maternal grandmother's side. It is so much to take in but I shall look forward to reading all the details!
Since beginning my genealogy in earnest I have been amazed at all the amazing ancestors in on both sides of my family. I do wish they had had cameras back then I would have loved to see what they looked like! I visited the archives in LaSalle when I lived in Montreal and that is how I got started on family history. I still live close enough to visit but now so much is available online that makes long drives unnecessary.
Thank you so much for sharing your work on the Payet family with me, I so appreciate your kindness! Tina

Pierre Payet
Dear Forestier;
Mr. Payet is my 4th great grandfather and seeing all the notes you made of his life solved a few problems I was having with my genealogy on other sites! I was unaware that he had had 3 wives so thank you for that information. I wanted to ask you is there a marker on his grave so that if I am in the area in the future I can leave flowers? Or has time eroded the place where he was laid to rest? Again thank you again for leaving such wonderful data! Marguerite Smith-Hart

Thank you
Thank you for your kind note. I really miss my dad so much, especially on weekends when we used to call each other. I forgot to mention - Like the kitty, it's a cutie. We have three at our house. Take care and I hope you don't have any wildfire problems where you live. Portland has been smokey the past few days to the extent they've issued air quality alerts.

RE: Major Pierson Barton Reading

I came across this memorial while searching for family members with the same last name. I just wanted to Thank You for the extensive research you obviously completed to make for fascinating reading on Find A Grave. Although I didn't find any connection to my relatives with the same last name (most from Utah), I thoroughly enjoyed learning about this California pioneer. It's quite obvious you put much work and effort into this memorial and I just wanted to Thank You for giving a life story to what otherwise might have been just another memorial listing his birth and death. I have a number of relatives who also were pioneers, mostly in Oregon and Santa Rosa area of
California. I am a history buff which is one reason I enjoy this site so very much. Thank you, again.

RE: Byron Crosby
I've deleted Byron Crosby. Three memorials is too much probably. I still kind of wonder why the G.A.R. post had records of him being buried in the field there. The newspaper had gotten the information from the G.A.R. post. However with a marker being in the military cemetery and one being at his home town I think it's the right thing to remove the one in the field for now.

Correction/Clarification of the last message I sent:
When I said the newspaper article stated several soldiers were buried at the front. I meant multiple battlefield fronts not just that one. It also listed cemeteries for those who were buried in cemeteries at that time.

Byron Crosby
I did create the James Island Civil War cemetery entry because I found a newspaper article that listed several New York soldiers that were buried at the front. From what I remember it was an article to let families know in the area where their family and friends were buried when they didn't come home. Connecticut is very close to the area of New York the newspaper was from, so that could be why it was listed there. I know from some of my history lessons some people were buried at the front and then later moved into proper burials, or at least that's what my teachers and tour guides taught me. Since that was where the newspaper article stated he was buried I didn't want him to be forgotten. It only had basic information Name, year of death which was hard to read on some, and where they were buried.

Some of the information on that one website I know is not completely accurate about some of the soldiers. I looked up Edward Pye. It lists him as a Captain but he reached Col. Several sources say he was wounded in the neck and it states shoulder (although neck and shoulder are close). It won't let me view it again but he was wounded in Cold Harbor and died in Arlington VA. They were trying to get him back to D.C. for treatment. He went to law school (Rutgers I believe) and was a lawyer and judge before going to war. He was Captain of the Rockland Rangers before it was merged into an official part of the Union Army 95th Inf. He became Colonel after the Colonel of the 95th was wounded at Gettysburg.

Since Byron might be a duplicate should I delete it? Or should I leave it since there is a chance he might have been reburied and the battlefield was the original location? Do you think it's the same Byron since the one was from CT and this one was in a NY newspaper?

So it sounds like you're happy I created the battlefield listing? I hope so, some people can get grumpy when you think you're doing the right thing and others say no you're wrong.

Shasta County History
Wow ! Thanks SO MUCH for putting up so many of the Shasta County graves and pioneers that you have. That is so great for those of us with family up there - and interested in the history - to find help like this. I so far THINK I have entered all my Shasta County people - but you know how it is - the more you dig - the more you find relatives. Just bumped into the BUSH family there - they married with my DESMOND line. Great additions - thanks.

Major Pierson B Reading
I am descended from Major Pierson Reading's brother Alfred Reading, who was my Great Great Grandfather. Under P.B. Reading's info on find a grave, there father was mentioned. A letter from 1844 from Pierson Reading (the father)said that he was having an affair with a woman in Pennsylvania and had children by her. I wasn't awere of this letter and I was wandering how I could get a copy of it. Thank You

Appolonia Garrecht Wentz
Hi there!

I was wondering if you could help me with Appolonia Garrecht Wentz. I think she may be my 3rd great-grandmother who was married in 1856 to Henry Wentz in Shasta Co. They lived in Horsetown and she died there at 27. Here is a link to the death notice in the newspaper from Dec. 1865

There are reasons I think she is my ancestor but there are other reasons why I think she isn't.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Thank you so much!
My Brother I want to thank you and Billy for your warm and gracious hospitality.

I must say I was astonished at your level of detailed knowledge about the people buried in the Shasta Masonic Cemetery. Not only did you know the names but also so many life details that you brought them back to life. *bows in deep respect*

Transferring the Shasta Memorials to you was the right thing to do. No regrets at all!
