RE: O'Nealls in Burr Oak
To make it really easy for me - go to the memorials and use "edit", then "Suggest any other correction or addition". Ask for transfer, and include your Find A Grave number.
Transfers would make it easy for both of you to care for her family members. Someday, she might get on Find A Grave herself, and you can transfer to her.
I too, have some cousins that don't "do" Find A Grave, and I care for their close relatives. I keep telling them how easy it is, and try to get them to come take over their family - perhaps someday!

I walked the entire section C and I did not see a marker. I did however find a Lester Vernon Stowe. You may want to contact Lawncrest. I am willing to go back out and look again.

Nice of you to say. Remembering the county's pioneers and connecting their families on this forum is very rewarding. ~Forestier

Thanks for posting that very interesting piece from the Arizona newspaper to the memorial page for John. Sure helps describe the man even better, and might help another researcher. Thanks for your generosity in sharing. A

Sorry I didn't look around for his wife. A monsoon was blowing and it started to lightening. Message me her name and I will check on my next trip.

I found two other Nichols at the Redding Memorial Cemetery but I couldn't confirm if they were the correct graves you were looking for and the state of the grave stone was very poor/very hard to read. They were Catherine Nichols b. Jan 15 1835, d. Feb 27 1892 and on the opposite side of the same marker, was a W.W. Nichols, b. June 25 1836, d. Dec 29, 1894. The grave stone of Catherine is legible in the picture I took, unfortunately, I don't know if W.W. Nichols is. I'd be happy to email them to you for your review if you'd like.

RE: Elizabeth Anderson Conard
Thank you so much Christine. These are not my relatives either but I am trying to get this family reconnected in hopes that someone will be able to find and claim their ancestors. I have some more information that I am waiting to receive permission to post. Thanks again for your help.

Hi Christine,

I finally had to go to Find A Grave to get them to make the updates as I never heard anything from Mary - so frustrating! Hope this helps - good luck!

RE: Sallie Haueisen Eaglesfield
Christine, Sallie isn't related to me. I have photographed her mother's entire "Moon" family in a cemetery here in Eau Claire. Another, non relative and I were trying to link all this prominent Eau Claire family together so as we've located members I've asked for the links. Thanks.

RE: Your Profile rocks!
TYVM Christine and YVW too :-) I'm happy I was able to help. I wondered about Frank Stearns, but I guess it worked out. It's nice to be able to see the grave markers to help with dates.

Miles S. Burns

These are Mr. Burns' comments concerning his early life and pioneer beginnings in Jefferson County.
This document is taken from the historical files at MJCPL and is labeled "HISTORICAL SOCIETY"- no date is given but Mr. Burns died in 1875 and is buried in Wirt Baptist Cemetery, along with his wife, Catherine
James Burns, A Pioneer of Jefferson County
One of our oldest and most intelligent of our early settlers is living on Second St., in the extreme western part of the city. It is old James Burns, the father of ex-mayor Miles S. Burns. Mr. Burns was born in Louden County, Virginia, near Alexandria, in 1786. He moved to Kentucky, traveling in a wagon, in the year 1794. Mason and Bracken counties were his stopping places, until 1806, when accompanied by a young wife he had lately married, he removed again into Ohio. In December 1806, Burns entered Fort Washington for the first time. The fort and surrounding village had not yet received its present nameŚCincinnati. The tract of land back from the river was called Hobson' Choice, the rest, facing the river, Fort Washington. The houses were few and scattered here and there in the woods and clearing. Mr. Burns rented a farm and lived upon it. He was enrolled in the militia and saw extensive service against the Ohio Indians. When Aaron Burr came West and fled southward to New Orleans Burns was among the militia who kept guard along the river at Cincinnati to intercept and capture him. The wily Burr, however, evaded the authorities and passed south without detection.
Burns came to Madison in 1814, the Indians being then at war with the settlers. James Hartsock, John Burns and James Burns together purchased a boat at Cincinnati in which to bring themselves, their families and household possessions to Madison. The boat was about 100 feet long and roofed over. Three days were occupied in floating down to Madison. "We landed", says Mr. Burns, "opposite the big frame house that old John McIntire put up. It is the same house that John Marsh now lives in, though it has been remodeled several times. Main St. at that time-1814-was the only street in the town. Main Cross was laid out only a little way down toward Mulberry. A person had to drive around logs and trees to go anywhere. The timber was cut down to make a show but was not cut up or hauled away. There were eight or ten families in town, not more.

hope this helps

Charles Bean Grave Photo

I have been trying to locate the grave of Charles Bean but to no avail. I have been down to the Historical society here in East Aurora and they said that he is in the listing for the Oakwood Cemetery. I have visited the cemetery various times, but still can not find his grave. I will go down one last time and see if I can find it.

The Historian gave me some other grave stone names in which he might be next to, so I will look again. He also said that the dates of birth and death might be a cause to why he might not be found, because during that time, individuals were buried in their own backyards since there was no official cemetery to put them in.

Plus, in books that I have looked at in my library regarding the old Aurora Cemetery here in East Aurora (also known as the Pioneer Cemetery), it was once three times as large as it is now. So what might have happened (and the Historian confirms this) is that some graves and their occupants from the old Pioneer Cemetery were moved to the Oakwoood Cemetery and either got mixed up or even (I am ashamed to say this) lost in the transfer.

I have the old card catalog copy of the record of his burial information and I could either post it here, or send it to you. (These records were originally from neighboring churches and even these get mixed up regarding what street or cemetery someone would be buried in. An example is that there used to be a church with the name of Oakwood and it quite often got mixed up with the Oakwood least that is what the Historian says.)

Let me know what you want me to do with the information I have regarding your relative.

Thanks and sorry for not being able to locate your ancestor's grave.

Bean Graves

I went to the cemetery yesterday and I was able to find the graves of Charles's parents Milo and Ann, and his brother William Milo, which I see you already have.

I was also able to find the grave of his child Clarence Milo Bean but the dates on the stone I can't read. They are all in the same line right next to the driveway cumming in off of Oakwood St. There is a big spot where there is just grass and no headstones, so I think this might have been where some headstones once stood but now are gone (either due to weather damaging the stones, or that they got covered over the years by grass and dirt).

I am going up to the Historical Society to see if I can find Charles and the others in his family ( I am also going to get help finding other graves for other members) and maybe I will be bale to get some information for you.

If you want to make a memorial for the child Clarence Milo Bean, I have the picture of the grave for you.
