RE: William Childs
do you know where he lived/worked? Monterey Co is BIG.. What do you know about him..spouse/child/parents? I'll be glad to help but so many options..from the Santa Cruz area, to the Gilroy area, to King City, Big Sur plus the larger towns of Salinas and Monterey. I'll do some reasearch to see if I can find him.. assume you've checked the census'. please feel free to contact me at magill1242 at gmail dot com.

Hi Karen,
I could not find "Katy" or "Frederick". They are listed as children on the link I sent you. I did find August and Freida(no memorial on Find A Grave yet) if they are part of your family.I am sending u a green grass pic of Mary Katherine and Alexander and also one of a Marie Schneider nearby if that helps. Let me know if I can help again :-)

RE: Fox Cemetery
Hi Karen,

Sorry, I meant to report that no marker could be found, but hit the wrong button. There was a marker for some other Towl members, but none to be found for the particular people that you had requested. There are a few toppled stones in the general area of the others, but none were for Towl.

Judith A DeMara
Alice Ewing
Alice was my grand-mother. She married Theodore De Mara and they had 13 children. My dad was one of the youngest, Warren Edwin born 4/17/1913, died 05/31/2005. Dad grew up in Sioux City, IA and I believe that is where Theodore and Alice are buried but I don't know which cemetery.
Dad told me his Aunt Vera and Aunt Edna married brothers, but I can't remember the last name. Let me see if I can find it.
My daughter is doing the family genealogy and is on so she has more info than I do.
How are you related to Joseph Ewing?

The other Ewing in that plot is Katherine Ewing Morrow if you know the married names for the women I can check with the office to see if they are there

Peter Joseph ("PJ") Braun
Karen, if you can't find her somewhere else, it still is possible that she IS buried in the Knights of Pythias Cemetery next to Clyde. Unfortunarely, we just can't prove it since the records don't exist. This has happened to me in the past, with records lost in a fire.

It's frustrating, but there are some walls that can't be torn down. I wish you well in your search... take care & be well, "PJ"

B.J. Waters
Adah and William Payne
Hi Karen. I was able to shine it up a little bit so that Adah's name shows up better. I deleted the older photo. I put some silk roses in their vase and took another photo, too. It didn't come out with their names readable, but you can see the flowers. You might want to change the order of the photos so that the close-up one is on top.

I just wanted to let you know that their crypt is next to that of former Detroit Tigers baseball player, Dwight Carter.

Best Regards,

RE: Birckhead=FAB

There are quite a few tombstones laid end-to-end in that one corner of Block S5. Many of these individuals unrelated and, I suspect, markers that have been moved from elsewhere in that section.

I could not read most of the text for Abraham Birkhead, but clicking on the photo tab and then clicking on the picture should bring it up full-size and a bit more readable.

The burial record for Abraham has death date as 7/18/1848; He was buried in Block S5, Lot CG, Grave 1.

Childs & Campbell
Hi Karen,

There is no headstone for Anna Childs.
Mary Campbell is not listed in our records, so she is not buried in the Adrian Cemetery. Notes in records states that around 1901 she moved to Hennepin County, MN. Died in that county, November 5, 1947. So she may be buried in the Minneapolis,MN. area.

Adrian Cemetery

Francis Mummery
Hi Karen:

Thank you for your suggestion regarding Francis Mummery. When I saw your note, and looked at her memorial, I thought: oops, I put the male version of the name on the memorial. However her name is indeed Francis. It is not one of the best stone photos I have taken, but the stone does say Francis took a magnifying glass to it! In the 1860 census, her name is spelt Francis as is her daughter. I need to leave some history on her memorial, I am so glad you brought her to my attention.
I really do like to leave history about the folks for whom I establish memorials. That being said, I noticed that your surname is Childs. There is a Catherine and Benjamin Childs at Maplewood Cemetery in Lake County, Indiana. I have never been able to find anything about them. Are they related to your family?

RE: Childs
There were several Childs stones right together and this one that had nothing inscribed on it. Both sides were flat. I posted it since you had a photo request. If you check for the other Childs in that cemetery, you will see the other stones for that family. I walked that cenetery 4 different days looking for all the photo requests and never found any other stone for anyone named Childs. The funeral home in Shell City has the cemetery records on the computer so you could possibly contact them and find out if she is buried with the other Childses. Sorry! Linda

RE: Hawkins
It does look pretty clear that Mary Isabel, etc, are at Pioneer Cemetery. Another cemetery that is actually very close to the state hospital grounds is the Lee Mission Cemetery. The web site for searching names there is:

I looked there and saw several Hawkins and Cooks.

By one of those odd coincidences that sometimes come up in this genealogy business, I saw on the Lee Mission listing a plot that is reserved for Mary Hawkins, next to her sister, Mavis, who died in 2000. Here's the coincidence: I worked at the state hospital for 30 years and knew Mary and Mavis Hawkins there!

RE: Salem Pioneer Cemetery
Hi Karen,

I don't know what the 'Old Rural' cemetery is. Pioneer Cemetery certainly was originally well outside of town, although it is now surrounded.

The directory and map at Pioneer Cemetery were very clear about the location of the grave and I double checked against the location of the Bantas in the same plot #295.

Question about a grave you submitted...

Dates for his involvement with the Vermont Militia are listed, as well as his exact birth date. I'm doing some genealogy work, and I'd be very interested to know what the source was on those, because it would help me greatly. Thanks!

Added by Scott Vrooman II on May 08, 2011 4:59 PM

Hi Karen,
Your photo request for Anna Childs can not be fullfilled as there is no headstone for her. As for Bertha Childs she is not listed in our records as being buried in the Adrian Cemetery.

You're very welcome. I don't know if you noticed, but I found a maker for their daughter Margaret and created a memorial for her.

RE: question?
Hi Karen,
Thank you for the inquiry. I will have to do some research as this entry was added over a year ago and is from my wife's family. Her line is through Charles's brother Henry, who also died in Santa Barbara. I show that Charles Richard Hayward's younger brother Edward J Hayward died June 23, 1911 in Santa Barbara. His brother Alfred, sister Ellen (Pierce) and sister Emily (Pierce) also died in Santa Barbara. Six siblings in all. I do not know about their internments, which is why I have not added them to Find a Grave. Most of the information I have is from written family history done by others.
