RE: Your photo for Lovell Cemetery
Sharon, my photo is of the entire (small) Lovell Cemetery in the grove of trees at the crest of the rise. The photo of gravestones was taken and posted by someone else. Surely if that person went out to that cemetery they would have taken a straight on picture of each side of that large gravestone. What it does say is LOVELL / Stephen Lovell / March 7, 1829. His date of death was not engraved on the stone. Please see my profile for links on researching Vernon Co MO deaths/burials. Regards, Nancy

RE: Elizabeth Lovell Howard
Hi Sharon,
Elizabeth is my 3rd great grandmother. This was the hardest part of my tree to work on. I only had a lot of unidentifed photos to begin with. My DNA matches others in the Lovell family so I fairly confident that I at least got Elizabeth's family correct. Is James Walter Lovell Jr your great grandfather?

RE: James and Ruth Lovell
My grandfather, Asa, was son of John, who was son of Ruben, son of James so that makes us kin. Nice to meet another cousin. Kathryn

Your Photo Requests
I went to the Reese Cemetery today in Battle Creek, MI. 4 of the graves you requested were all at the same site. There are no individual stones from what I could tell. However, there are several Betterly family plots very close to each other. One of them dates back to the 1800's. Your request for Phebe Betterly was hard to fulfill, because there were 2 marked "Phebe" and neither one had the date you stated. The oldest one I couldn't make out the date. All I could read was the name and "died November ???" The date is faint, but I could at least tell it wasn't the one you provided. But it's a family stone (obelisk)and there are two names (one on either side)I can't remember, but I think the other side of the oblisk says Dr. William Betterly. There are also two small stones at the bottom that are unreadable. Also there were two Lucy Betterlys, and since you hadn't left a date, I didn't know which one to get. They are in two different family plots. However I plan to go back soon and wish I would have thought to get all of them, and just let you sort them out. But I'll get them next time. Use the photo I provided however you wish.

RE: William R Lovell
only Lovells buried in Vermont per cemetery directory are
Hester Ann ( no stone)

James and Ruth are not buried in Vermont. I saw a note that they lived in Ipava but they aren't in that cemetery either.

Only other Lovells I've found are Williams son John and his wife Mary buried in Astoria.

RE: Newell Lampson/Lamson
We are beyond gardening and almost need a lumber jack. The Lamson stones are completely overwhelmed by a large area of big bushes and small trees. I walked around Jude and his wife's marker for about 15 minutes (I knew it would be close to Newell and Harriet, and I knew it was there about 10 years ago when an inventory was done), but didn't spot it until I got on my hands and knees to get another angle into the "forest".

RE: Baker Family
Thank you. I don't live near Champaign, but this was the 2nd time I have been able to walk the cemetery while in Champaign for other reasons. I did not have much time and had to concentrate only on the specific requests. I was only able to check about one third of the cemetery.

RE: Phoenix and Juliette Baker
Thanks. There are adjacent Baker markers; Gilbert Lane Baker d 1927 and Jennie Stewart Campbell Baker d 1925. If you are related and want to make the memorials, I will add the photos. Also, on the back, is David Wallrod. I don't know if this is David Wallrod Baker or just David Wallrod. Again, if this is your family, make the memorials and I will add the photos for you. If these are not your family, I will add the memorials and photoswhen I add about 40 other memorials.

John Whipple's wife
Sharon, I have transferred Basmath - I found her father and linked her to him, but did not find her mother's grave place.

Her son's bio has so many versions...but they were residing so close to the bluffs of Winter Quarters that the original Winter Quarters Project by BYU had them all "residing" in what was called the "3rd Ward", which would put them nearer to what would later become the "Winter Quarters Burying Grounds".
Good luck in your searches ~Cheers, Shirleen

ps - the reason I try to hunt for these Great Plains pioneers is because one of my handcart grandmothers was always reported to be at Iowa City, when no Iowa City existed at the time. I looked for her many years before figuring out the correct location! See her memorial at # 75127371

RE: Edward P Lovell and wife Minnie
The Lovells are in a crypt nearest the ceiling so unfortunately the marker photo is a bit distorted.

Also took the photo for your request for Alta Bryan. She is in a older Terrace and the marker is behind glass. I took a few different angles and will work on it this morning to post the clearest photo.

Carrie Baker & Sarah Lucey
The birthplace for Sarah Lucey was provided to me as an edit. Unfortunately, I didn't document the person that provided it. If you would do a photo request for Carrie Baker I will have a better chance of remembering to look her up again after the snow melts. Thanks!

Re Irving Crandall:
First of all Happy New Year. Irving's obit was in a scrapbook my aunt had created. It would have been from one of the local newspapers. Probably Morris as many of the items were from that. I will change the spelling of his mother's name to your spelling. I'm glad this was of help to you. I took the time to type all the items in her many scrapbooks hoping the information would be a treasured find to relatives. Donna

RE: Alf Betterley
Nope, I gave you Alf Betterley. I was just wondering who his parents are is all for part of the research I am doing on the Maiden Rock area. I think his wife was Maranda Crandall (b.November 6, 1837 Milford, Pennslyvania d. Jan 1909 in Chippewa County, Wisconsin. Is that correct? I also have 4 children Alf Betterly who is buried at the Ono Methodist Cemetery in Pierce County, Francis Betterley in the Porcupine Cemetery, Pepin County and Roy and Harold Betterley who I know next to nothing about except their names.

Alf Betterley
I transferred Alf Betterley to you. I'm assuming he's the son of George? I'm working on a history of Maiden Rock along with genealogy of the early families there for a future Pierce County Historical Association project. If you find out anything more of the Betterley's time in the Maiden Rock area please let me know. - Dan Pierce County Historical Association.

RE: Amos Lamson's stone
I've started the paperwork for the Mayflower Society. I can easily do the one to Brewster, but almost all of the others hinge on a difficult-to-document great-great-grandmother. Gotta love New York State genealogy; it's a great black hole where documentation falls in, never to be seen again.
