Minnie Bilderback Cowan
Hi Emily,

I just discoverd this page about my great great grandfather Charles Henry Bilderback. I noticed that Minnie's date of death has to be wrong (sorry) I know I have the info on her death somewhere and I know it wasn't in the 1800's as stated in the information on Charles Henry Bilderback.

I am Minnie's great grand daughter, My mom Carolyn, is Minnie's granddaughter, she was born in 1939 and remembers Minnie being a part of her life. My mom's dad is Emil, Minnie's youngest son. We of course called Emil PaPa, but he was going by Joseph Raymond Cowan by then.

I am also curious if you would happen to know anything of Alfred Cowan, Minnie's oldest son. It seems like the family didn't all come together later in life, my Mom has no recollection of ever hearing about Alfred, altho she knew Alma, Etna, and Ira, and of course Minnie.

I know all of Minnie and Charlie Cowan kids were taken away by the court and put into juvenile facilities very young in their lives.

My paternal Grandma had a neighbor named Al Morris, in Napa California in the 1960's time frame, he claimed I was related to him through my Papa, Emil (Joseph Raymond Cowan). As I think back on it, Al did look much like my Papa and I am wondering if there is a connection.. I see the Morris name coming up in my Bilderback searches but not really sure what the connection is...

I have been dabbling a bit with geneology and haven't been back on ancestry. com in a long time but it looks like the Bilderback family name has been pretty much researched.

Any information you can provide on Albert Cowan, maybe later Morris would be greatly appreciated!

Emily,

I was wondering if you would like me to transfer Mattie's memorial to you. I would be happy to transfer some of the Morris family to you.

Your welcome, Emily. I posted a msg on the Jasper County Genealogy msg board on any info they might have on Thomas. Maybe they have info on why he was admitted.

Thomas Dow Morris
Hello Emily, I have requested a photo of Thomas's headstone in Fair Acres Cemetery, Missouri. Also asked to have them email a copy to me for my files. If I receive it I will send you a copy. Hopefully they will post it to his site on find a grave.

RE: Capt. Samuel Baker b. 1807
Emily,

The source of Samuel's date of death was the inscription on his grave marker. I am not sure if his grave was unmarked and the existing marker was placed at a later date or if someone replaced his original marker. This cemetery has gone through cycles of maintenance and neglect, so either could be a possibility. I have not been able to locate any additional information related to his death. I'm sorry that I could not provide you with an answer. D. L.

RE: Sunset View, Berkeley
Hi Emily,

I think I told you that I have 4 different Morris lines, but I haven't yet connected this line to me. I have been working on this line for my friend Kelly. She brought several boxes of pictures, letters, and certificates over and I used them to get my info. I have given them back to her, so I am unable to verify right now, but I will try and get them back.
My Morris lines lived in many of the same towns in California, and Ohio as Kelly's, so I really think they will connect up.
When I talk to cousins all over the country my maiden name has about 6 different spellings, but we know that we go back to the same g-g-grandfather. I figured he and his sons' didn't know how to read or write and depended on someone's spelling. Plus we know that spelling regulations didn't come into existence until about 100 years ago.
I will look over the stuff and correct them.
Thank you
Dixie

Bertha Tearl Osborn middle name edit
I received but have declined your edit request for the middle name for Bertha Osborn. The inscription really does have "Tearl" for the middle name, not the "Pearl" that we would otherwise think it might be (click on the photo to see it enlarged). Although it would be an unusual name, unless there is documentation otherwise showing that the inscription was mis-engraved I think it is best to stick with the inscription version "Bertha Tearl".

RE: Mattie Schooley Lee
Hi Emily, No, I do not know the location where they are buried at. Is there a caretaker there? I would go to city hall & see if they have any records. If not, maybe they know where you could find the cemetery records. If you find the location of the graves I will add it to the memorial pages if you will let me know. Good luck. I hope you are doing well. Have not talked with you for a while. Elsie

RE: Salome Grable Baker
Emily,
We are definitely cousins!
I would like to do further discussions with you. Would you email me at rjbeamer@cox.net which will facilitate our comparisons.
I am descended from Jacob S Baker / Salome Nettie Grable through their son Israel Jacob Baker / Elizabeth Ann Myers. Their daughter, Nancy Caroline Baker married William Edward Cooksey. Nancy and Edward left Muhlenberg/Logan counties and went to Weatherford, Parker, TX and then homesteaded in Greer county. Both are buried at White Flat Cemetery outside Mangum.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I have linked William's page to that of his mother. I Know his obit says his father is also buried in that cemetery, but if he is, there is no longer a stone for him. I worked on this one a couple of years ago, and as I recall, it was hard to find all the pieces of evidence. I walked the cemetery and photographed all the stones, but in the past this cemetery was vandalized, so I know there are probably many others buried there with no trace remaining of their gravestones.

RE: William and Alice P. Morris
Emily,

I looked on the Church's website. Thomas Dow Morris was added from the Ancestral file and that person had to have added that name possibly in the 70's. There was no address to contact her. The AF was full of mistakes. I know because I was first learning to research in 1970 and made lots of mistakes.

Another person put in just Thomas Morris without the Dow and her e-mail is maggie2vci.net

I'm not sure if the address is still good. The last entry she made was 2007. If it's still good she might be able to help you.

RE: William and Alice P. Morris
I agree with you on the name. I thought the same as you, but I was helping Kelly get started with research. I figured she would take over, but she hasn't so far.

If it was my family I'd be checking it out.

RE: William and Alice P. Morris
I would need to get on the LDS Church website and look around. I do remember that Dow was his father or grandfather's middle name too. I didn't look any farther.

RE: William and Alice P. Morris
I debated about the name, but the I looked at the signature and he signed it Franklin too.

My dad's name was Jayne. His grandfather was from England and it was a named spelled that way for men. His mother wanted him named that, but his dad did not, so he asked the docter not to put the name on the birth cert. My Uncle his brother was Edward, but we all called him Bill. I am sure most of the family do not know that Edward was his real name.

My mom was called Dick by her family. Their dad wanted a boy named Richard. My mom came along and named Hazel, but called Dick.

So I'm never surprised with different names.

Thank goodness when they named me after my mom I got Dixie.
