Bedie Thornton
Hi Valice, I received your correction on the given name for Bedie. Do you have any documentation of it being Obedience with Bedie being a nickname? I know it makes perfect sense. :) However, I've done extensive research on Bedie as she is in my family tree and have found her name as nothing but Bedie. I would love it if you had access to a Bible birth record, marriage record, obituary, etc. so the name could be verified. Thank you ever so much for your help. THANKS! Pat Simmons

RE: San Albino
Thanks again. Since the crosses probably don't likely exist anymore I'm glad at some point they were visually verified and documented. Would you happen to have a copy of the canvassing you spoke about? I'm missing so many other relatives I can't seem to find.

RE: Josefa Bertoldo
Hello sure thing. I see you also established memorials for Alejandro Bertoldo Sr., Jesus, Carlota, and Severo Isidro Bertoldo. But others trying to locate the gravestones can't seem to locate them in Old San Albino Cemetery. Do you remember or can you give me an indication of where you found them? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

Paul Horn death location
The Horns may have lived in Moorhead, MN but according to the ND Death Index they died across the border in Cass County, ND - probably because by then the only hospital in Moorhead had closed, anyone that was really sick died in one of the Fargo hospitals.

RE: Gerhard's in New Mexico
I'm not either. Found the records of the ones in Philly and got a hint for the brother. If you hadn't created the memorial, I never would have found it.

Jessie McMinn grave
I have added photos to your site for Aquilla Tidwell Cemetery. You will see it is very overgrown. There are grave stones visible. When the growth dies back in the fall/winter I will revisit the site.

RE: Bathsheba Barrett Oxford Kuykendall
Yes, I am a long time researcher and Bathsheba Barrett is my 5th great grandmother. You are welcome to add any information I have given you to the memorial or to your tree. There is more detailed information on both Bathsheba and her first husband on my tree Markle Family Tree (owner: bmarsi1). I was not aware of her second marriage. Nor do I know whether she and Samuel Oxford were formally divorced. His will leaves property to Molly Fox, the woman he was apparently living with in 1800 and mentions her two young children who were undoubtedly his children also but does not call them his wife and children.

Bathsheba Barrett Oxford Kuykendall
Bathsheba Barrett was the daughter of Jonathan Barrett who was one of only a few white men living along the Catawba River in the 1750s in what was then Rowan County. He was a hunter and a surveyor who laid out the road across the mountain which was his home and which lies on the north side of the Catawba near present day Taylorsville in Alexander County. Bathsheba was born either in Virginia or at this mountain home in North Carolina on 4 January 1741. The name of her mother is unknown.
Bathsheba married Samuel Oxford, a neighbor who lived on the south side of the Catawba. The legends of the area tell many romantic stories of their courtship. Samuel's family operated a ferry across the Catawa river and it is said that when the water was low, Samuel would use a long pole to jump from stone to stone to cross the river while he was courting Bathsheba.
Samuel and Bathsheba had twelve children and all are believed to have been born at the same place. The different locations of their births reflect boundary changes as the counties of western North Carolina developed. The site of Samuel's home is now in Catawba County and is probably submerged somewhere under Lake Hickory.
Al though no record of a divorce has been found, census records show Samuel and Bathsheba together in Lincoln County in 1790 along with those children who were still living at home. By 1800 Bathsheba is living in Buncombe County where her oldest son had moved and Samuel is still in Lincoln County. His household includes a woman who is several years younger than he is and a boy of less than 10 years. By 1810, still in Lincoln County, Samuel's household includes the woman and child now listed as 10 to 15 years old and four younger children.
Samuel died in 1811, leaving a will leaving $50 to each of his children by Bathsheba except his son Samuel Oxford and his daughter Bathsheba Byler who were each left ten shillings. The money for these bequests was to be raised from the sale of his goods, chattels, lands and tenements. The will was recorded in April 1811 in Lincoln County. Shortly before that time, on February 14, 1810, a document was recorded [Lincoln County Deed Book 25, p.46] in which Samuel Oxford sold to Molly Fox for 50 pounds a black horse, all his stock of horned cattle, all his household furniture and dresser furniture in pewter, iron pots, all the furniture belonging to the dresser, all his beds and bedsteads, and furniture, all his plantation tools, all Indian corn on the place, and all rent on his plantation for 4 years. Samuel was to enjoy the property during his natural life and Molly to have it when Samuel died. This bill of sale sounds more like a will than a simple sale.
It appears that after Samuel and Bathsheba parted ways he remarried (or lived with) Molly Fox and had two children with her and Bathsheba remarried to Abraham Kuykendall.

RE: Lucinda and James Brizendine
Those are 2 different Brizendine gravesites of only 2 graves each, per the 1981 surveys published in the county's cemetery book, "Sumner County, Tennessee Cemetery Records," by Margaret Cummings Snider and Joan Hollis Yorgason.

We are still working on this one...have a couple ideas where else it may be. Lots of small family plots around here.

RE: Eudotia MacDelean
I tried to look up the duplicate memorial but apparently the other volunteer may have already deleted it.

I you will go ahead and send the other info you want me to add and the memorial numbers of any links ( her husband, parents) you want me to add I will be happy to update and we will make it as complete as possible.

RE: Iver Bakken
Will keep my eyes open for other wife. Just a fluke that I took the other two pictures - I didn't know that Mary was Clinton's wife. Must have been God talking to me again, guiding me....
Posted a (partial) plot shot to Clinton's memorial so you can see. Again, when grass dries out etc., will redo all. Can't wait to get back out there - sunshine and lollipops!

Hey Valice,
What a pleasure it is to hear from you after so long. Most contacts on findagrave are a one-shot-deal but ours is like a timex watch, it just keeps on ticking and thats cool.
I made the corrections that U suggested and gave U credit for the research. Thanks. !!!
Also, I have gone by there 3X watching and waiting for the association to clean the place up so that I can search for memorials on the people who do not have one posted, to date, nothing has been done. But given the really bad weather we have been having here for months on end, I can see where any proposed work has been put on hold.
I will keep checking an as soon as there changes I will let ya know. Later, James

Did a "snow check" today and lo and behold, there was Wallace. Clinton is still covered - shouldn't be too much longer! (Will replace Wallace's with no snow when I do Clinton.)
