I haven't time to work on them and their kids right now but maybe if you're interested you could use the info on that memorial and get the kids linked in?

RE: Joshua N. Foster
Jay, if we are related through Margaret Patterson, do you have any information on her from Kentucky and before? I can't definitely find her parents, brothers or sisters. I know she and Archibald were married in Butler County Ohio in 1829, and there was a Samuel Patterson there at the same time and township that looks hopeful, but can't prove it. This has been one of my brick walls for years. Thanks for any help.

RE: Joshua N. Foster
Hello Jay, and thank you for the heads up. I usually get to Find a Grave through Ancestry .com, so where they send me is where I end up. As for your questions about Joshua Newton Foster ----- the only birth date I have for him is the year 1844. No month or day. He was born in Morgan Township, Butler Co. Ohio. Parents were Archibald Handley Foster, and Margaret Patterson. He was from West Virginia, and she was born near Lexington Kentucky. He is on the 1850 and 1860 censuses in Decatur Co. Indiana. Census takers were notorious for their spelling mistakes back then, and I believe that's where the mix up in names comes from. I also saw one census where he was called Joshua A.N. Foster, or N.A. It's all the same person though. He was the youngest of 5 children, the others being Franklin J. Samuel J. [my gr gr grandfather],Archibald G. and Margaret Elizabeth. Hope this helps.

Azel Shoemaker.
In 1880 in the Highland Ohio Newspapers Azel Shoemaker transfers property to Mary E. Bolin. Do you know why that was? I am trying to figure out f they were related?

I made the corrections to this memorial, but as I did not create it, I am not able to delete it, even though it is a duplicate.

Added by EllieKB on Oct 16, 2014 6:00 PM

James Collings update
Thank you for sending the edit for this listing. I maintain many listings in Stone Cemetery because the original contributor is now inactive and unfortunately she had many mistakes such as this. It helps when someone catches them and they can now be corrected/updated.
Best regards,

Take a look at what I've added and let me know what you think, also it seems that you are showing a lot of interest in the Kinzer's, are they a relation?

Please contact me directly. Your death record for Martha is correct but she is in Oakhill cemetery Watseka Illinois. She and her husband Thomas adopted my gg grandmother Nettie. I would love to hear from you and I hope you'll be excited but I also have her picture. I attached it to her memorial at Oakhill cemetery.So glad to see someone who knows who she is!!
Also she was first married to Washington Arnold and had 2 children. Thank you!

E.S. Faris, Lucilla P. Pulliam Faris.
Mr. Wright,
I also found another child that is not linked to E.S. Faris and his wife. Her name is Jane Ann Faris and she is buried in Tuscola Township Douglas County, Illinois Cemetery. She married Henery P. Jacobson. Her birthdate is 2-22-1838 - 10-31-1927. Her husband's dates are 06-23-1843 - 02-05-1913. I put in an edit to link to her parents. Just thought you might want to know.

Thanks, Tracy Boler

Thanks for the photo edit. I deleted mine and will be happy to have yours on the memorial instead- no need to make the photo "mine". Thanks!

RE: Thanks re photos
Hey, Jay, thank you so much for your interesting note posted yesterday!! I can't believe that neither you or I are related to Joshua Haines, but that together we have kept his memory alive with our contributions to Find A Grave!! My hubby who is a member of SUVCW (his great grandfather Granville Pierson served 1862-65) had "accepted the challenge" to record Civil War Veterans gravesites in cemeteries in Adams County, Iowa. Since we are about sixty miles from there, it is taking us longer than we thought to accomplish this task. Joshua Haines was in one of the cemeteries we have been to. I am thrilled that the stone was readable enough for you to make out the father's name. Totally amazing where we can find just the right tidbit of information! Thanks for ALL you are also doing to memorialize our Civil War Veterans these 150+ years later!! Blessings and hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! Barb

Jay, if you would like to add Morris' 3rd wife's maiden name it was Bowser. She was my great-great grandmother Sarah Bowser-Ludington before she married Morris.
