Hi again Sheila

I would be honored to maintain the memorials for Fred and his wife, Nellie [Burr] Franzmathes, 58460186.

Thanks for maintaining the memorials for so long!

All caps
I looked at that contributor's memorials and darned if I see any of the caps you mentioned. Maybe they got fixed suddenly? Am I missing something? If you get denied on corrections and you know you are right, don't bother with the stubborn contributor. Just send it directly to, and they will fix it. They like to get those requests done a certain way, so if you haven't done this before, shoot me an email at and I'll tell you how.

Thanks for being a conscientious member and helping to clean up stuff like that.

Hattie/Harriett Bunnell
I tried to find a legitimate reference to her as Harriett and haven't found one so I don't know how I came up with that. Maybe it was that 1900 indexing error. On John's bio I have changed each "Hattiett" to "Hattie." Thanks for pointing this out. It gave me a chance to correct some typos too.

Hi Sheila,
I made another memorial for Julia. I have had problems with memorials in Parkhill from the past, so I guess I'm in the habit of going in and just deleting them. Always, she is back up and running again. Let me know if the info is correct or I can transfer to you to manage if you like.

Hello Sheila,
Thank you for the correction on Florence Bremmer's memorial. She is not directly related to me and if you'd like to manage her memorial, I'd be happy to transfer it to you. Just let me know.

RE: Shepard photos
No problem - when I saw the number of requests in C I headed over there yesterday and did the entire plot (it's a small one with only about 800 Stones).

RE: Israel Peters 129685302
Hi Sheila, I have the 'History & Story of Israel & Eliza Abbey Peters & Their Descendants & Families" manuscript compiled by (4) grandchildren. It's abt 2"thick & a copies of pages out of the Abbey Bible passed down to Eliza (Abbey) Peters.

When I submitted the information as a edit on Israel's memorial I should've taken the information from the Bible page & not what had been copied into his profile information. However I don't know if I just keyed it incorrect. Here's the information from the Bible pages.

Birth page:
Israel Peters was born in Ernestown Sept 25, 1829
Eliza Ann Abbey was born in the same place May 2, 1833. (I might have listed Eliza as 1831, which should be 1833.)

Death page:
Israel Peters died Dec 18th 1904

Eliza Ann Peters died Dec 26th 1916 in Los Angeles, California

On the 'Saga of the Peters' Family' it's written that he died in Langham, Saskatchewan. Now that I read more & it clearly states "for approximately the next 25 yrs, the family lived in Ernestown, Ontario. The next move was to Walhalla, ND". I bet he died in Walhalla, & because he's buried in Langham, it's written that he died there.

This manuscript notes, additonal sources of information: Records Dept, Walhall, ND; Old Saskatchewan Story 1905-73.

And yes they did live in Walhalla, North Dakata. Israel was a carpenter & built several buildings in Walhalla, ND. One was the Methodist Episcopal Church, Walhalla he built in 1892. Another was a hotel built in 1900 & another was a drugstore & possibly there were more. In the book there's pictures of these three buildings & noted taken as of 1949.

Israel & Eliza Peters are my husband's 2nd gr grandparents. I have pictures of both of them & their family home in Walhalla, ND.

I hope this information is helpful.

Hi Shelia,
His death certificate lists him as a junior and his date of birth as 22 Sept - but the WWII registration is probably a better source so have change the date.

RE: Walter
It says Carbondale on his death certificate. Several of the family obits mentioned they lived four miles west of Carbondale. It's at least 6 miles or more to Murphysboro proper, and the lines have changed...but even now that's a grey area because it's not really in either town (except legally, which doesn't matter often anymore for births, since they all take place in hospitals, lol). If I sent it as an edit, feel free to decline it and just leave it as Jackson county.

RE: Walter
Thanks Sheila, I mistyped the year. I meant 1837 or 1838. I did not send an edit for year of birth because there is no good record of birth, so it probably shouldn't be in the birth date slots. Just wanted to give him the ballpark since it was unknown. Thanks for catching my typo.

Orva Watkins Lawrence
Sheila, thanks again for your information regarding a marriage date between Orva and Jerome. The following is what I found on "Family Data Collection"

Dec 1849

Marriage Place:
Jackson, IA

Marriage Date:

Orva's husband Jerome is my ancestry line, and my main interests have been working with the Civil War veterans. I am most anxious in finding where he is buried. Thank you so much in taking an interest in this family.

Jerome and Orva Lawrence
Sheila, the only information I had to go on as to where Jerome and Orva Lawrence were buried was their daughter Lula's Find-A-Grave information. It showed her parent's names on the document as being buried in Park Hill Cemetery. I just assumed they were buried there as well. You know what they say about assuming??? Perhaps it would be more accurate if I chabged each of their memorials to read: "No Known Buried Site." Thanks so much for your input and thoroughness.

Thank you very much for sending the information about Frank, he was my great grandfathers brother and I have so little information about him. Would it be possible for you to e-mail his obit to me. Yes or no, I do appreciate you sending me this information, keep up the good work! Actually I was named after his mother.

I got the date from a canada record and their
translation might have been wrong as I have
found before.
You would be correct on your birth date.
Sorry for the mix up. I put in my tree your date.
