RE: Sarah Dixon Knox
More than welcome ... the N side is always the toughest > like this one < but fairly readable! I am glad you did an "edit" [forgot which one] but when I tried to do it ... it said Terry had already done something with that field ...
I think it had to do with the plot? But when you get old like me ... not everything is crystal clear! Were Sarah & Ben E Dixon{GAR} relatives of yours? just curious...

Thanks for the additional information. I'm not sure I trust the newspaper to have it correct either with all the errors I've discovered in my family documents. I usually try to find find 3 sources and take 2 out of three as more 'official'. :) Did you want me to change Archilious to Archillas? Archilious is actually used more often as a given name.

This grave is in WEST Prairie View Cemetery, not Prairie View, as you suspected. I have located the stone and photographed the grave, but need to have the memorial edited to the correct cemetery. Would you do that and issue a request and I will upload. I have his parents photos already uploaded as well.

I closed down the original request. Thanks.

96813085 Mary Williams Butts
Some time ago you sent me edits & info on this person. I have just received some additional info stating that she died as a Payton (married to George Payton after Mr. Butts. I generally follow the Find A Grave policy of using name on tombstone so will work with the 2nd contributor on that to find a satisfactory way to label her memorial. She also provided names of some more children by Payton whom I'm trying to locate/link. Since you evidently are also related to Mary Butts wanted to check what you might know about this to be certain the new connection is correct to your knowledge. If you wish to be put in contact with the 2nd contributor I will ask her if I can exchange your screen names or whatever will work, as she is a great-gdaughter to Mary. Thanks and I look forward to you letting me know if any of this sounds familiar to you! Sandi

Hi Terry,

Are you related to Hattie?

If so, would mind sharing information about her and her family? Something I can post on my website for others to see?

I ask because I have been documenting folks buried in Block 12 at Riverside Cemetery for over 6 years. My goal is to shine some light on these folks. To learn what I can about them. Would you be willing to share?

Mary Jane Thuma
She does not appear in the burial records for Forest Cemetery. The stone for Mary is his first wife, died in 1873 and I would bet his second wife, Mary, is not buried in Forest Cemetery. Finding someone buried in Forest that is not on the records would be an extremely rare occurrence as they kept very good records there. Your memorial is good, you just might end up moving it when you find where she is really buried. I went through three different sources trying to locate her at Forest including Knox County Cemetery books and found nothing for Stevens, Stephens or Thuma. I could be wrong. Maybe if we had the obituary to help. Sorry, and good luck!

Adolphson Gravesite

I am a fellow Find A Grave contributor. Iíve been helping the Special Collections area of the Davenport Public Library with a project regarding old St. Maryís cemetery here in Davenport. Iím helping locate obits for people who were buried there and for people who still might be there. Some people were moved to Holy Family and Mount Calvary when they decommissioned the cemetery.

Whilst looking on Ancestry I ran across the FAGs for the Adolphson family and their obits. What a said tale for the children. I live across the street from Oakdale and plan to go over and pay the family a visit. Whatís also sad is that neither of the addresses listed in the obits exists any more. Thanks for sharing.
