re: Charles Goss
The DC # on his memorial refers to the Missouri Death Certificate issued in his name. You may find it online at the Missouri Secretary of State website. The State Hospital at Washington Township treated a host of patients with various conditions...I expect you can find more information by way of online searches or through the local historical society. As far as I know, the records of individual patients are still sealed and must be obtained through court order.

RE: Porter Drew
I am very interested in making contact with this person. I haven't heard from him.

My g-grandmother was a Drew, she was a cousin to Porter.

I am interested in anything and everything I can find on the Drew family.

Porter Drew

I saw the portrait of Porter you put on Ancestry. Can you please put it on Porter's memorial?

RE: Sarah Hill Morgan
You are most welcome, & I have no objections to your using the photo. I only wish I had been able to take a better photo of the entire stone for you. The inscription was so light I was afraid that it wouldn't show if I got back any further. I live in Blanchester, Ohio which is about 140 miles from Washington County Indiana. I had been involved in an educational program in Corydon, Indiana for the Harrison County Schools on Friday, & the general public on Saturday. By the time the program was wrapped up & I was able to get to the cemetery it was about 7 pm so I only had about an hour of daylight left to work with.
I am aware of the connection between Susannah Motsinger, & Michael Brown. I am a direct descendant of Jacob Sr. Motsinger (41181119).Jacob Sr. would be my 5th Great Grandfather. My line descends down from him to Jacob Jr.(37474309), to John (37475204), to Joel (8112115), to Charles (8112043), to Ernest (32873850), to Hugh (37664429), who was my Father.
I have a considerable number of my ancestors buried in the Olive Branch Cemetery, In addition to the Motsingers I am descended from the Lockenours,& Sifers,& Robison's who are buried there, the Sides,& Crims, buried in Washington Co., & the Peytons, & Robertson,s of Clark Co,
Besides the Brown Motsinger connection I know that one of my GG Grand Dad Thomas Lockenour's son Marion(32860810) was killed at Jeremiah Brown's Stump Mill when a horse kicked him in the head. I have had some little information on the Brown connection,but little beyond what I have related. I also have a tree on Ancestry, but I haven't gotten around to adding the information on the Brown connection, which I soon hope to do.
Based on all this I would say we share a common ancestor in Jacob Sr.

Hello Robbin,

While anything is possible, I don't see a probable connection.

HILL Is my late husband's linage, he was an only surviving child and (so far as I know) there are no other Hill researchers in his father's line.

These Hills settled in south central Indiana, coming from Richland, OH. There are several distinct branches, but Ohio is still their point of origin, and then they went to Ripley County, IN and to Bedford, KY - just across the Ohio River from Madison, IN.

Jesse, Birl, Sherman are some repeating names.

Did you know that Daviess County, IN - Washington - has their newspapers in a searchable format online and free?

I use those papers for other areas, as they were quite the 'gossip mongers' in their day and anything they wrote about weddings, funerals, the like was very detailed.

Best wishes on your continued research, perhaps we will meet as 'cousins' yet!

What a blessing you are to our family. We did not know where our aunt was buried except that it was probably near Edmonds, WA, her last known address. It is so sad when older people lose track of each other. We wish we could have been there, but are relieved to be able to come find her in Lynnwood. Even our state librarians were unable to find an obituary or cemetery. so thank you so much. Do you happen to know if a man is buried next to her..."Red" Davis? I do not see any men who might be in the same age range listed among the 1700+ graves assuming Red is a nickname. thanks again, from her niece.

Thank you for the information. If you have anymore information that you would like to add, I will be glad to add it/
I too, am working on my family genealogy and have always appreciated the fact that people will look up information on gravesites for you. Especially when you live so many miles from the cemeteries.

I have added the family links that you requested.

Obsessed Genealogist
George Chambers - Pike County
I have a George Chambers on the 1850 Census in Pike County, Indiana, he is living with Mary Chambers age 45 (her maiden name was Romine), George is 23, Edward age 26, David age 18, and Indian (India) age 16. There are several other Chambers families living nearby. I am trying to find more information on India - she is listed on the 1860 Census as Indian Pressey, she was married to Peter Pressey and had son William H. (Hamilton) Pressey. In 1861 she gave birth to Sarah Ann Pressey who married William H. Lamb in 1878. India died sometime in the mid 1860s because Peter married again. There may be more children from the marriage. The marriage record of India has her listed as I.E. Chambers. I have found no trace of Edward and there are several David Chambers but nothing leading me to India. The George Chambers married to Mary Jane Hornbrook is the correct age and location. However, records state his parents were George and Edith Chambers. Sarah Ann Pressey Lamb died in 1951 but no one knows her mothers exact death date or burial site. If anyone has documents about India please let me know. Mary Romine Chambers was her mother and her father was James(Jameson) Chambers married 1822 in Pike County, Indiana.

Hi Robbin,

You're very welcome, I was happy to post it and even happier when a family member (like you!) finds it. Thanks for the info, I have added it. The Armstrongs are not in my family, there are several of them buried there. Do you want me to transfer Cora and the others over to your care? Just let me know, have a very nice day!

I've transferred both to you. Thanks for letting me know of photo use. I'm planning to visit this cemetery again in the fall to finish the 10 or so rows I didn't have time to complete the 1st time...I'll get a better version of the new stone at that time. I'll let you know when I've added it.

RE: Jesse Porter Drew
The thought that it could be Lillian is very plausible.

My g-g-grandfather was Jesse Portman Drew, who was a brother to Jesse Porter's father, Banister Drew.

In my research, I've found the Drews to be a very prolific family, to say the least. My g-grandmother, Viola Drew Davis, was the mother of eight and pregnant with her ninth when she died. I haven't counted them all, but they are in Pike, Gibson, Daviess and Vanderburgh counties here in Indiana, and I can trace nearly all of them to a single Scotsman.

I've copied the photo to my computer, but thank you for the generous offer. I like to refer to these things as "treasure." I think it's a fascinating photo!

Added by KEWalker on Jul 23, 2012 11:26 PM

Jesse Porter Drew
Thank you for the beautiful photo! The Drews are part of my mother's maternal line. Are you connected to the Drews? I haven't been able to determine if Porter ever married, the lady in the photo may be one of his sisters.

Thank you again!!
