The picture of Orval E Mitchell's marker that you attached to Orval Ross Mitchells marker - Memorial 57718037, appears to be another Orval Mitchell as the dates do not match. Thanks for checking it out! Linda

Your welcome, just wished there was a marker there. The location is Section K Lot 876, I went ahead and sent a edit to have it added on her memorial page. :o)

I see you have a request for William Larrison who died in 1919 and buried at Northwood Cemetery in Cambridge, Ohio. I looked at the cemetery records and William is in fact buried at the Cambridge City Cemetery not at Northwood Cemetery. His date of burial is 11 Apr.1919. I hope this is some help for you in your search. I am hoping to get to the City Cemetery soon and I'll search for his headstone.

According to County records, Funeral for Elizabeth Ann Folk, 39y,11m,13d--was held on 8/3/1851. Do you think this is the same person? If so, I'm wondering which record has the date wrong. Sometimes they are scribbled and therefore transcribed wrong. Any thoughts?

You have added two photos of Joseph R Eakes tombstone, buried at Gravel Lawn in Madison county, Indiana. Both photos are sideways, would you please delete one and correct the other photo. If you are unable to do this, I would be happy to do it and send the photo to you if you have email. Then you can add it and get credit for adding it in F.A.G.
I appreciate your contribution on F.A.G.

My email is on my bio and you are welcome to contact me on the McGee line and their genealogy. Timothy and Sarah Ann Hampton are hard ones to get past, have clues but not proof. I know a lot about their offspring, however and can fill you in on that if you're interested. Would also like to share info on your branch......am following all the McGee descendants for a few generations at least, recent enough for their descendants to recognize a grandparent and link in. Yes, the Larrisons and eventually the McGees were a mining family and moved through various counties (Perry, Coshocton, Guernsey, Muskingum) in Ohio following the coal and some into West Virgina. Mary Jane had four husbands. Mining was a brutal occupation back then. Yes, the Larrisons and McGees intermarried and it does make for some confusion.

I am a McGee descendant, and the one who had the VA replace Timothy McGees deteriorating headstone. He and Sarah Ann are my third great grandparents and I've done genelogy on this line for twenty years. Would love to talk to you to compare notes as I still live in Muskingum County and could be useful as far as any help in your own research. I decorate their graves yet.

|Richard Rieck||#103775036 Joseph Stokes|
While en route overland to California in 1850, Lemuel Herbert wrote in his diary on July 1, "Today we overtook Dr. White's party, which had been detained by Mr. Stokes, of Marion, O., who is very ill, the result of the stinging of a poisonous insect in [the] night. His head and neck are fearfully swollen, almost out of human shape, and no doubt he will die." On July 2, he wrote "Mr. Stokes is no better. Poor fellow, he is near the end. We had to go and leave his party." At the time Herbert was on the Bear River in Idaho near Thomas Fork River about one mile west of the Wyoming state line or 10-15 miles southeast of present-day Montpelier, Idaho.
Another traveler, John Bailhache, wrote in his overland diary on July 9, "Passed 1 grave I. Stokes, from Marion, Ohio Died July 4, '50." Bailhache saw the grave at the same location described by Herbert, so Stokes did die and was buried there.
Because of the same family name, year of death, and hometown, it seems very likely that the Stokes who died on the trail was Joseph. The letters "I" and "J" are commonly confused by diary transcribers so that could explain the difference in initials.
Travelers who died in the wilderness far from California or the Missouri River were buried where they fell (as confirmed by Bailhache). If there is a marker in Marion it must be a cenotaph or memorial marker as the Stokes remains are still in Idaho, although a marker in Marion might make it appear he was moved to Ohio.
Can you confirm that there actually is a marker for him in Marion, or is there simply a notation in the cemetery records?

I was thinking about the teacher in the Bucyrus, Ohio named Jean Mack.
She was my mentor when I began teaching in view Cyrus in 1975. When I put her name in Google this entry showed up.
She was a wonderful woman and teacher.

I have sent you a request for a couple of additions to the John and Harriett (Frost) Witham Family and now that I see your Bio wonder if you have any additional information on either of these lines. Harriet's sister, Hannah, is my 2nd great grandmother and also married a Witham. Now I wonder if John and my ancester, William Witham, were brothers. I am looking for who their father was. Are you researching Withams or Frosts? Thank you

I have deleted the duplicate memorial and added our pictures to your memorial. If you are related,
would you like me to transfer the other Baldingers in Fairview to your care? I would rather they be with relatives.
