Thank you. I hope FindaGrave responds and removes it.

I don't think "Missouri" spends much time on FindaGrave. She has not removed the photo. Wish there was some way I could remove it but there does not appear to be.

Thanks for the info and obit on Dexter W. Jones. It answered a nagging question that had puzzled me for several years. Could you tell me where you obtained the obit? The date and paper are identified but was it online?
Thanks again, it was very helpful

Would you like for me to transfer this to you since you are related?

Thank you for noticing the photo and that it does not belong on Alexander McClelland's memorial. I have put a note in the bio until the photo is taken down so no others post it as his photo. I will remove the remark when the photo is taken down.

Thanks Larry & Susan for your reply, I didn't know anything about the second marriage, and I was confused when I found the marriage for Naomi T. Taylor listed. I have it corrected now and I so appreciate you taking the time to inform me.

I am a 3rd cousin of George Thomas Hughes, and I have a marriage for him to a Naomi Troyena, but not to Telsie Marie. Can you explain this.

Hello Susan - I stumbled across your exchange with member S.R.F. from a few days back, and saw that you mention being a 5th (?) generation descendant of Catherine Courson McClelland. That would make us cousins! I am also a descendant of Alexander and Catherine McClelland (7th generation). That should make us at least 4th cousins, maybe closer. I would love to know more about your lineage. Would you be interested in conversing further by e-mail?

|S.R.F.||RE: Reverend Benjamin Corson|
What death record? There is also a grave photo for B Corson III on ancestry, but I was not able to save it to my tree. I wrote the person who posted it and if I can get a copy, I will let you know.

|S.R.F.||RE: Reverend Benjamin Corson|
If you do a Search on ancestry for Sarah Elizabeth Dungan (Corson), the grave photo of her tombstone will show up, as well as a picture of the Old School Baptist Church which is at the entrance to the Old Schools Baptist Church Cemetery, where she is buried.
Also, there is another memorial for her which was started 05 Jan 2011 (before yours). It is managed by LizAnn. On that memorial, her name is spelled CORSON.
Check the 1790 US Federal Census for Benjamin CORSON, and you will find him.

|S.R.F.||RE: Reverend Benjamin Corson|
The Reverend Benjamin Corson and Sarah Elizabeth Dungan are my husband's fifth great-grandparents. Someone has just submitted a grave photo of her tombstone, located at the Old School Baptist Church Cemetery in Southampton, Bucks, Pennsylvania. Her name on the stone appears as "Sarah Corson...Wife of Benjamin Corson".

You don't have an email address here or I would send you the complete genealogy, but here is some of it:
Reverend Benjamin Corson 5th GGF
Maria/Mary Corosn 4th GGM married William Harvey
Belinda Harvey 3rd GGM married William Atkinson
Phineas Atkinson 2nd GGF married Eliza Mary Alburger
Philip Atkinson GGF married Louisa Vansant
and on down the line it goes! :)

|S.R.F.||RE: Benjamin Courson|
That is interesting! He is the fifth great-grandfather of my husband and I have only seen the name spelled Corson. You are the first person to suggest that it was spelled with a "u" in it!

|The Old Sarge||Photo on wrong memorial|
The military headstone photo that you placed on Fred Morton Daniel Sr's Memorial (58704410) should be located on his son's memorial, Fred Morton Daniel, Jr. I don't seem to be able to remove it even though I'm the manager of the memorial. Please correct this if you can, if not let me know and I'll contact Find-A-Grave to do it.

I would leave the date as on the tombstone even if it is incorrect. It is not unusual I think. I have a copy of the printed church records and when I find an error I will now just leave it alone. Jim Eydmann

|Paula D.||Thomas Eaglin|
I have been doing some digging around in my genealogy and found Thomas Eaglin to be my third great grandfather. I just have a few questions because I seen you have the memorial and I am trying to get the correct information. The Thomas I am searching for is the son of George Washington Eaglin and Sebra Ingalls. I see that some of your information compares. However the date of birth I found on the Family Search website is between 1852-1853, and shows he was born in Illinois, this is the link. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M6HZ-1ZK
I appreciate you putting the information you have into Find a Grave. I was just confused as to which information is correct. I am curious if you have any other information that would validate the correct birth year and place of birth. I appreciate all your hard work and help! Thank you again!

|RaeAnnT||RE: Harold Arthur Woodside|
I agree. That's why I told the owner of the original memorial that he had the wrong cemetery. I guess if he doesn't change it, I will need to ask him to remove his memorial because it's in error. I'll wait a few days to see if the cemetery name changes or not. Thank you.

|Richard Rieck||#105910316 Julia McCarty Stone|
While traveling overland to Oregon in 1852, John T. Kerns wrote in his diary on August 17, "A Mr. Stone's wife was taken sick last evening with cholera and died this evening after camping..." On August 18 he continued, "Buried Mrs. Stone this morning in as decent manner as circumstances would allow..." At this time Kerns was in Idaho on the south side of the Snake River about 15 miles east of Givens Hot Springs near what is now Murphy, Idaho.
As you may know, John Carroll Power, 1876, "History of the Early Settlers of Sangamon County, Illinois" on page 689 notes that Julia McCarty Stone, wife of Phillip Z. Stone, died in 1852 en route to Oregon.
Due to transportation difficulties, travelers who died this far (nearly 500 miles) from Oregon City were never exhumed and returned home. In view of the above it seems almost certain that any stone in Marion County, Illinois is a cenotaph or memorial marker and not a tombstone. Such memorials are quite common in the east and can be impossible to distinguish from an actual tombstone.
Can you confirm that a marker is actually visible in Odin or is there just a notation in the records? Thank you.

Thanks for getting back to me. I knew he was married to M. M. after Sarah for a short time before he died - I was hoping that the headstone might give a clue as to her actual name, and I couldn't make it well enough to tell. Too bad. But thanks so much for your help in the matter.

|Claudia Daniel||RE: Andrew Jackson Matthews and Loyd Daniel|
I have practically pulled out my hair trying to find Mollie's mother. There was an 1880 census that looked like a possibility but the mother would have had to have been 12 when she had Mollie (who was not on the census but looked like Andrew JACKSON was. I noticed on Andrew Jackson's death certificate that it listed his father as JACK (and on the headstone I remember seeing Andrew J for his dad).
Could it be possible that Mollie was only a half sister and was out of the home by the 1880 census. I keep thinking I find a piece of the puzzle and then have to start over!
Thanks again for the info. And btw, I DID post the info from Danny's bio (Loyd Richard Daniel). Several of us have copies of the whole thing. We are not really in touch with his second set of offspring (probably in their 60's) but it would be interesting if they had some stories we don't know about. They would be my husband's half uncles.
