Memorial 102644166
Hello Pam, Going through family records, I found the information on Esther Ann Loveless Conklin. I was so excited to find this on Find A Grave. I added a photo of her and her mother. Esther is my great aunt on my father's side. I was named as her name sake. I have a cousin named after her as well. My g.aunt died a day after the birth of her second son. Thank you for the work you do on this site.

It takes a lot of concentration for me to wrap my brain around genealogy.

re: Findagrave Memorial #64753699

Hi Pam,

Thank you for honoring my great, great grandfather with a Findagrave Memorial.

In Thomas' Memorial bio, the reference to military headstone application completed in 1934 by E. L. Entrekin suggests this is his granddaughter, Elizabeth Louvenia Entrekin. If you will, please share with me any info you have on Elizabeth. In my database, I have an Emily Louvenia (1893-1964), daughter of John Franklin Entrekin - she married Marcus Hudson on Sep 27, 1914 and lived in Cullman Co, AL - and probably would have used her married name on the headstone application.

A more likely applicant for the headstone is Thomas' grandson, Emory Lee Entrekin (1890-1956), son of Jones Beglar Entrekin. If you and your research agree, please consider changing this in Thomas' Memorial bio.

I appreciate your consideration of my request.

Clarence Larimore Stuff
Dear Pam, Thanks so much for sharing your source link for Clarence and Sadie's marriage record. I use Family Search all the time. I can't believe I missed this.

I have been in touch with Linda Garver already. I have been sharing all of my Larimore stuff with her, but I still have a long way to go. Again, thanks for responding and sharing. Mark

Clarence Larimore marriage to Sadie G. Klocke
Say I just had one more thought on all of this: On his 1918 WW I Draft Card, Clarence reports his father Isaac Larimore as his informant on his whereabouts, NOT Sadie G. as his wife. Now this may not be significant, but I have found that most young men put their wives as informant.

Also, do you happen to know when Clarence and Leona Tooley divorced? She lived to be 92 so there must have been some sort of official parting of ways.

Any help you can give me would be very appreciated.

Clarence Larimore marriage to Sadie G. Klocke
You wrote: Could you please edit his marriage to Sadie Klocke. They were married in Adams County, Illinois in 1914.

I would be very glad to make the change, but would you mind sharing your source for this. I have never found any record of their marriage in any of the Illinois marriage indexes. My reasoning for using the 1921 approximate date is as follows:

For the 1920 US Census, Clarence reported as single and was living with Sadie Klocke and her son Robert W. Klocke. I presume they must have married sometime shortly after that. By the 1930 US Census (Clarence had died by then) Sadie was going by the name Larimore and reporting as widowed and still living with her son Robert Klocke.

Clarence did not have a will when he died so, my great grandfather, Frank J. Penick, was the Administrator for his probated will, and my grandfather, Mark A. Penick, was the attorney to the Administrator. Each had signatures on Clarance Larimore's probated will. The proceeds of all of his worldly goods went to Sadie G. Larimore.

Again, I would really appreciate it if you would share your source with me so I can change this. Feel free to contact me at if you would like to discuss this further.
Many Blessings,

Italic Addendum
Sorry, you cannot see the HTML code because it turned the text into italic, which is what it is supposed to do. Try this:

Hannah < I>Conklin< /I> Palmer

To use, take out the spaces following the < codes.


Added by Jim DeLaney on Mar 17, 2016 12:05 PM

Jim DeLaney

Here is an undocumented way to add italic, as in maiden names, in the bio section of a memorial.

Hannah Conklin Palmer. These HTML codes will turn everything between them into italic. The codes themselves will not appear in the memorial.

RE: William Conklin Palmer
I have deleted the memorial as requested. However, there seems to be a hole in William and Hannah's list of children. Perhaps you should add it back with an unknown death place.

RE: Your Family Members
Hi Pan... You are right Momma did die on the 20th.. The 18th is when we got the news that they would NOT do surgery and she would have to live in pain so we allowed them to do as they wanted. I tried calling around 7pm and didn't get a answer. I would love to sit down sometime to talk. I have the if I can find it... I have the Ragland family back to the 13th century. Including one being knighted after he built the Ragland Castle.

Dawn Carnes
Robert Cooper and wife Catherine
Hi Pam, I was reviewing the Find A Grave for Robert Cooper and Catherine Cairn's Cooper. I have Catherine's last name spelled as Carnes. I have seen the name spelled several different ways though. In The Bible record of Robert Cooper, he does not give the spelling. Catherine's parents were Michael Carnes b. 1792 and d. 1851. He was born in Bedford, Virginia and died in Logan Co. Ohio. Robert is living also in Logan Co. prior to their move to Iowa. I do have the list of their children with their birth and death dates if you are interested. Her mother was Rhoda (Heath)Carnes. She was born in 1806 and died in 1890 in Logan Co. Ohio. I also have Catherine's siblings if you are interested. I can be reached via email or here on Find A Grave. Take care.

Do you have an address or phone number for the ladies at the Eddyville Historical Society? You mentioned that they might be able to help.

Pam, you have requested a transfer for a distant relative of yours. I will transfer later this afternoon as I'm not at home right now and it's easier for me to do from a computer. Also, I was wondering if you would transfer 2 of my distant family members, Infant Painters, buried at Shady Grove. I have the mother and dad of the children as they are distant relatives. Thank You!
