RE: forbes family of Grafton and Alton, Illinois

Thank you for your kind words. You are very welcome to use my bios. I am glad that they turned out to be helpful to you!

Richard Tate Forbes

Your note made me realize that the bio I wrote made it sound as if Adam and Agnes Forbes had been proven to be the parents of Richard Tate Forbes. I wanted you to know that I have now changed the wording to make it more accurate.

Again, please let me know if you ever come up with something definitive, and I will continue looking as well.

Thanks for your help.

Richard Tate Forbes
Hi Cherry,

The 1841 census in Scotland listing Richard Forbes, son of Adam and Agnes Forbes, would appear to be him. As you said, there's always the possibility that the Richard Forbes on that census may have been someone else with the same name, born at approximately the same time and place.

His death certificate has no names listed at all for either parent, and his obituary doesn't give any clues either. Someone has citizenship papers for him on, but I couldn't get them to open this morning. They may not contain any information in regard to the identity of his parents anyway.

I wish I had some other way to confirm, but am still searching for definite proof. Sorry about that. Please let me know if you ever succeed in finding documentation that proves things one way or the other, because I would be happy to update his bio on Find A Grave.

Good luck!

Henriette Fullner Fuelner Füllner Luedeke
Hi Cherry,

"There are lots of ways to spell Augustine Henriette's maiden name, but most use the umlaut version in Germany"

Your comment threw me off a bit, but I guess you observed my note about Henrietta's surname on Carl's memorial. Just trying to draw that distinction between the records.

But yes, I understand what you mean. Being of German ancestry myself as well as spending some time in Germany, I have run into similar. I guess when the Germans came to America, they had to "choose" a different spelling as we do not use the umlaut in our language.

I guess she decided to drop her given name, and also favored Henrietta over Henriette too. You know how it is; Johann became John, Wilhelm became William, etc

Thanks again, cherry,

Carl and Henriette Luedeke
Hi Cherry,

Thank you for posting the terrific photo and touching base with me. This compelled me to do a bit more to these memorials (I can really clutter up a page).

Amongst other things, I added some bio notes to Carl, as well as another photo, and I also ran across a photo for Herbert. I attempted to at least clean up the surrounding memorials a bit.

Hoping this assists you with your family research. Thanks again for sharing.

Jonathan Edward Kindle
You asked for a correction for Jonathan Kindle, on his sibling's (Tabitha Arnold) memorial. I did not link him to her memorial. Family links cannot be made through siblings, only through parents or spouses. The links on his memorial were added by other find-a-grave members. Since you own his memorial, you will have to make the correction. If you link this memorial to his father, not just his mother, this should correct the error.

RE: gratitude!!
Management means you can add information and photos. I'd be happy to add anything to the ones I'm managing. I didn't take any photos of Fullners in Stanton so I assume you are related to the Loerkes.

Tell me who they are and I'd be happy to transfer management to you. I'm not related to any of the photos I took in Stanton.

Wilma I. Davis

A couple more things I just thought of: Flora Hills Cemetery is huge. There are probably more than 6,000 interned there, maybe many more. There is only a small fraction of them on findagrave. Of all the pictures I took in the "Rose Garden" section, only one was already listed.

They have a big office and mortuary that is open every week day, if not weekends too. I would just call the office and ask about Red or any Davises buried next to Wilma. I would also ask them to check their records for an exact death date in Oct for Wilma. An exact day will help the obit people and you will have a better chance of getting an obituary.

The phone number at Floral Hills is 425-672-1800.

I call cemeteries often looking for location of loved ones, so I don't have to walk the whole cemetery, and they are usually very helpful. They will also check their records to see if someone is actually buried in their cemetery.

Good Luck,

I got the phone number from our local Snohomish County Phone book. If you have trouble with the number let me know, and I will dig some more.

RE: Wilma I. Davis

Hi! Glad to have helped you out. I have had so much help from findagrave, that I am always happy when I can help someone else in return.

Wilma is buried in the the Rose Garden of Floral Hills cemetery. She is near my parents. I was visiting their grave, when I decided to take pictures of those around my parents as a contribution to findagrave. I think that if there were a Red Davis near, I would have gotten a picture. I live about 30 miles north of Floral Hills now, but next time I go, I will take another look for Red or a Davis near Wilma. Not hard to remember, as I have Davis's in my line too.

You know that Wilma was born 24 Jan 1915 and died in Oct 1986 in Edmonds, WA (I will update memorial page). If you would like me to transfer Wilma's memorial page to you, I would be happy to do that, or if there is other information that you would like me to add. Let me know.

Did you try getting an obituary from the State of Washington library. It is free, they have obit from all the papers in Washington. The only hang-up is that it takes about 2 months for them to get back to you, as they have so many requests. Her obit is probably in the Everett Herald or Seattle Times. The following is the "ask a librarian" website, where you make the request. I would just put Oct 1986, Edmonds WA with her name and age at death, and see what you get. They make a photo copy and email it to you free.

Let me know if you would like me to transfer the memorial. I will need your findagrave #.

Best Wishes,
Robbin Hill Foules

On the memorial page, under the cemetery photo are two buttons, one for add a photo & the other for request a photo. Click on that one. My info came from a book Sam Mateo County Death Records extraction by Pam Reynolds. Many of the graves in this cemetery do not have head stones.

Thank you for letting me know about the photos you loaded -- what a strange note he sent to his sister. I just loved the note paper!
