RE: Sallie Burton
Dennis Peterson,
I was reviewing my findagrave inbox. There was this old message about Sallie Burton from Dennis Peterson that neither you nor I have done anything about. Please do create a memorial for Sallie Burton, because you know the Traughber family better than I.

I however am very familiar with the Traughber monument, because it is next to Mama and Daddys. We lost Daddy 5 months ago in September. Late summer someone left a floral arrangement at the Traughber monument and I have enjoyed seeing it there when visiting Mama and Daddy.

Thomas S Brooks 1842- 1902
I read your Bio information on my 2xgreat grandfather, Thomas S Brooks, 1842-1902, buried in th Ebenezer Cemetery, in Nevada Cty, Ark. Its very detailed and has information that I did not know. I wonder where you got the information for his father and mother Josiah Wright Brooks, and Martha Barding? I thought his parents was William Brooks and Susanna Meredith. Do you have information that confirms Josiah Wright Brooks and Martha Barding as his real parents??? Very interested...Debbie

RE: John W Brooks
Dennis, I see from the bio on William that you say his stepmother died in 1898, I am wondering what your source of info on that was. Jane Mitchell Brooks is my great grandmother and I have not been able to find any info on her death, although in the 1900 census John W. Brooks was listed as widower so know she must have died between 1889 and 1900.

I forgot to mention in my earlier message, I got that headstone photo from Cliff Brooks, I did not take it.

Hi Dennis,
I also found a death notice of Finley on a Fraternal Order database. It shows his death and place, Howard, Kansas. It is the IOOF.

I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank you for your outstanding work in researching, documenting, and photographing the memorials you've placed on this site. Your work has enabled many of us to find and link up extended family members. In this regard, you have my sincere thanks for the transfer of the Hamme family memorials that were critical to my research. You've made is a lot easier to find "lost" relatives and for this you have my heartfelt gratitude. Thank you!
Best regards,

RE: John Logan Traughber
Dennis Peterson,
The photos are each a gift for your usage on Traughber memorials as you see fit to do.

Perhaps on a warm spring day I can use foil to determine the lengthy poetry engraved on the Traughber monument.

Mama and the Traughbers have a front row seat in Smith Cemetery overlooking the surrounding farm land.

I've linked up Lewis and Walter and will add their headstone pictures this week. There are still another 100 or so graves that need to be photographed and recorded in the cemetery and then it will be complete.

I transferred the parents of Jacob Westfall, your memorial 69250908, to your management as I'm deleting several memorials at your request. Please connect the memorials to Jacob and feel free to update/change the memorials to your satisfaction.

I'm assuming that like me, you are also a direct descendant of these folks.

Thank you for pointing out the duplicates, your time and your effort.

Charlotte Garwood
age of 33 without the months or days listed. Confusing yet.

In short, I added your possible birthdate on the memorial for Charlotte, as Monroe was just being incorporated as a city, and villagers did not keep accuThanks for the birthdate suggestions. I went by the church record I found for the marker in Memorial Place, which is 1802, but the marker in Woodland cemetery as a memory of her, has a different death date on it, as 1837, but the same rate records. Plus at that time, half the village got wiped out with a cholera epidemic, so what little burial records that were kept are a blessing to have.

One note of interest, the marker in Memorial Place for Charlotte has been well preserved, as it was covered with 4-6 inches of ground, and was found only by the city doing an ultra sound on the small cemetery. This marker has been covered since the early 1900's, and I was lucky enough to be part of the group to work on some ancestors from this area. I was thrilled to have records given to me that would have never been found by the ordinary searches. We could have used you there, helping us dig by hand, when I looked at all the Garwoods you have listed. The only thing, I was very disappointed to see so many of your memorials as Burial Unknown locations, that doesn't help me at all.

Have a great day, and thanks for the interest.

You have taken a really good photo of this cemetery - why don't you add it to the home page? It is better than the ones that have been added for the cemetery.
