RE: Miles Cox - McKendree Cemetery
I'm really sorry, I feel so bad sometimes when I can't find someone. The cemetery that is on the same side of the playground, has very old stones and some you can't read or only partial marker. 1912 would be an older marker, but there were some that were not much older then that. Again I am truly sorry I wasn't able to find him.

RE: Fondaw memorials
Your very welcome! I was going through the Ballard County Cemeteries Volume II (such a fun read)and found them and thought you'd like them, so I researched them, put them in my tree, and sent them on for your safekeeping. Best wishes for a great Easter for you and yours. I'm beginning to believe spring has finally sprung.

**Louis Palmer Dewees** 2nd Great-Grandpa is Carret Deweese 1708 /1769. Carret Deweese is my 6th Great-Grandpa.
**-All-Dewees-share-a-common-heritage>Tamie DehlerThe Tribune-Star The Deweese/Dewees family name is an example of a surname where all of the families in the United States share a common heritage, all descending from a single ancestor. This family comes from the Netherlands. Dewees is one of the early permanent surnames of Holland, **

**as the country used patronymic names (taking the given name of the father as the surname of the child) for many years. Currently, there are no people in the Netherlands who have the Dewees surname, but many in the United States with this surname. It is possible that this is a unique surname and that the single progenitor brought it with him when he left Holland.***The progenitor of the family in the United States was Garrett Hendricks Dewees. He was the grandson of Adriaen Hendricks Dewees, who was born about 1595 in Holland. Adriaen took the permanent surname of "de Wees," which means "the orphan." During this time, patronymic surnames were still being used, and the Dutch research shows that the early Dewees family were sometimes listed in the records under their permanent surname, their patronymic surname, or both. Adriaen's patronymic name was Hendricks, indicating that was his father's given name. However, another source says his father was Jan Pietre de Wees.***First generation: The grandfather Adriaen Hendricks de Wees lived in Amsterdam and was a merchant book dealer and art broker. There is documentation in Holland that Adriaen had some business transactions with the artist Rembrandt van Rijn in the mid-1600s. Adriaen married Hillegond Goverts on March 28, 1615, in Amsterdam, Netherlands. They had four known children: Hendrick Dewees (1615-1661), who will be discussed below; Isaak Dewees (1619-before 1657), who married Trinjte Jans in 1846 in the Netherlands; Gerrit Dewees (1625- before 1657), no known marriage; and Tryntje (pronounce the "je" as "ie") Catherina Dewees (1626-before 1674), who married Johannes De Visscher in 1657 in the Netherlands. Adriaen Hendricks de Wees died about 1674 and wife Hildegond died in 1656, both in Amsterdam. They were members of the Dutch Reformed Church.***Second generation: Adriaen's son Hendrick Dewees was born about 1615 in Beverwijk, Netherlands. Hendrick was christened on December 6, 1615. He married Adriaentje Jans on April 22, 1640, in Leiden, Netherlands. Adrianetje Jans was born in Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands, parents unknown. She died after November 1661. Hendrick and Adrianetje had four children: Garrett Hendricks (1641-1700), who will be discussed below; Jan H. (1641-1674), William H. (1643-1663); and Nelletje H. (1649-1663). The father Hendrick Dewees and his brother Isaak later moved to the East Indies, where it is believed that they both died.***Third generation: Garrett Hendricks Dewees was born was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, about 1641. He married Sytie Lieuwes, daughter of Lieuvens, on Sept. 28, 1662, in Lieuwarden, Netherlands. Sytie was from the province of Friesland in the Netherlands and was born before 1649. Garrett Hendricks and wife Sytie immigrated to the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam (now New York City) around 1663, embarking from the Dutch province of Friesland. They moved to Germantown (now a part of Philadelphia), Pennsylvania, in 1690 and purchased land there. Their children were: Divertie (born 1666 New York), Lewis (1670 New York), Ariantie (born 1673 New York), Lambert (born 1675 New York), Hendrick (born 1677 New York), William (1679 New York-1745), Lysbeth (born 1681 New York), and Cornelius (1682 New York-1735 Philadelphia).***If you have a Deweese/Dewees lineage, your line will go back to one of the children of Garrett Hendricks and Sytie (Lieuwes) Dewees and your research will take you back to Germantown, Pa.

Thank you, Joanna. If you haven't already done so, please visit my virtual cemetery for "Jake the Great". We hope it can help someone else somewhere.
If you all head back to Missouri, please don't hesitate to ask for any help you think I can be. Life is changing, but my passion for this will remain.

Charles W. Fondaw
I've transferred Charles W. Fondaw to you. I am not sure if you live locally but I wanted to let you know, the photo is at such an odd angle because his monument was hard to reach. He is in the back section of the cemetery, in the woods. The front section of the cemetery is kept up and clean but all of the graves in the back are being taken over by brush. It was hard to get to some of them, limbs down, thickets of thorns, etc.

I went to the cemetery today to try and fulfill your requests, but it is hard to locate these markers and it was just toooo hot. I will go back when it is a little cooler and get the photos.

I have taken care of this. Please in the future use the Edit tab and suggest a correction so that the memorial is attached to the request.

Phoebe Jane Conner Clark
Hi, I am Phoebe's great-great granddaughter and found your name on the Find a Grave website. Actually, I was kind of surprised because the picture of her you posted is one that I have in my files (but of her, John Thomas Clark and 5 of their children). I am John Henry Clark's great granddaughter thru Beulah Jane Clark Parr. In fact, I have the hoe Papa Clark used in his garden after he went blind. I have very little information on the Clark family. I have been to 1 reunion in the Memphis area many years ago, but I don't remember much about it. I went to school for a short period of time with some of Junior Clark's (Henry) children.
Do you have any other pictures of the Clark family? I would appreciate any information you have available. I have become the family recordkeeper and am in this file right now because of some questions my cousins in CA have. My father, W. O. Parr, Jr. is very ill right now and has become unable to answer any questions we have.
Oh, I do have some pictures of John Henry Clark if anyone needs them.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
Cathy Parr

RE: James T. Collins headstone
No problem. I went to that cemetery to fulfill photo requests for the McCormick family and found James T Collins' marker there too. The top needs to be dug up, cleaned, and placed back on the base as I could not see any dates. If Mr Collins is a member of your family, then I will transfer the memorial over to you to manage. Let me know.

Thanks - Timothy Ward

Daniel Brown (1833-1916)
Hi Joanna, I was so pleased to find the picture of Daniel Brown today. He is the brother of my Gr. Gr. Grandmother, Louisa Brown who married Daniel DeBord.
If you know of anyone who has pictures of this family, please let me know. I have a lot of info, just not many "Brown" pictures. I would especially like to have a picture of my Gr. Gr. Grandmother, Louisa if anyone knows of such.
Thanks, Leona Latham-Simonini
