Just to say hello
Hello, Earl Landman was the step-father of my dad, C.W. Shaw, Jr. Although I met Earl when I was young, I've never known much about his family or background. Thanks for your work on the family tree.

Masters/Wymore Cemetery
HI Harold,
I received your email. I looked back through the cemetery records. There are three recorded burials of Masters (Mrs. Robert (Mary E.) burial in 1899, a son (Howard Andrew) in 1899 and Albert with a burial in 1911.) It is certainly possible that whoever kept the books wrote down the wrong name if Albert was the one who contacted the cemetery for the burial.
Within in the lot, there is only one stone with the Masters' name on it and that is Mary's so it is possible that Robert is buried there but there is no marker.
Do you think we can go ahead and delete Albert's memorial?

Chauncy and Clara have different birth dates but they did die on the same day. You can find their death certificates on Family Search.

Robert Masters linking
Thanks, Harold, for the suggestion to link Robert Masters to his father. I've done that, with a shout-out of thanks to you. When/if you find Lavina, I'll be happy to add a link to her too, of course.

Harold I am transferring Joseph to you so you can add relatives etc to his memorial and connect him to your family. I will keep Amanda as she is in my family tree.

RE: Joseph Masters
Thank you Harold. There are quite a few missing in that era of Brooks descendants. I am pretty sure most of them are buried in the one (or two in one side) row in the George Washington Keeton Cemetery inside Lake Hope State Park in Vinton County, Ohio. Amanda's baby boy, Archie Masters, is there along with her parents, Arch & Annis Brooks, and 3 very young nephews. So it is not unlikely that she is there alone with her sister Martha and her husband, her sister Lydia's husband and 3 of their children, her sister Lovisa and her daughter.
So yes, if you ever find any mention of Amanda or Joseph & Amanda's grandson Frankie please let me know.
I was also able to take the name of a photographer at the bottom of a professional photograph and look him up in census and determine what year it was taken, or within a 10 year range the photographer was in business.

Joseph Masters
As regarding his birth place. I am pretty sure I got that from census. Where did you find different info. If you ever find the death date and burial place of his wife please let me know. I cannot find it. Ohio Death index does not begin until 1908. Indiana has deaths up till 1920 indexed but not all counties are in it. There are several indention's in the graveyard in the same row that Amanda's parents are buried in. I, for lack of cemetery, would say I am almost positive she is there. So I entered her there until I can find the exact burial place.
Regarding their 2 grandchildren that died as infants. Frankie C Masters I cannot find. I have seen his burial card which does not mention a funeral home, place of death or anything other than his name and dates. It is exactly like his younger brother Charles O.'s funeral card.
Charles has a death certificate. His death is recorded in Shelby County, Indiana. But the cemetery is right on the county line. They have no record of him being buried there, we were there and checked it out personally. They said many burials are like that. People crossed county line and buried people without the burial being recorded in the church records. They have numerous burials and they cannot bury in sections like that with no tombstone. I would say that Frankie is buried in the same cemetery as Charles. But with no written proof I cannot say for certain. But as their cards are exactly the same, except for name and dates, it does seem strange. Cindy

Thanks, I didn't realize that I missed connecting Lorenzo. Now if only Taylor would answer my request for a transfer of Moses to me and to cancel her Elizabeth so we could pull our families together.

Absolom Winegardner 44896884
Harold, thank you for the suggestion on the change of Absolom's birthdate. I took the information from the published Barb/Barbe genealogy, which is based on the author's interviews with family. Family history indicates that the monument was erected some years after the deaths of many of the family, and the inscribed dates may contain some errors. Please let me know if there are questions. Cindy

I have Lorenzo's memorial and I have his mother Elizabeth Masters I know her maiden name was Oliver . I just didn't know of the husband Barry.
Lorenzo is my 2nd great grand uncle. Moses his brother is my 2nd great grandfather.

Robert and Elizabeth Oliver Masters are my line.

I am not sure where you found my mistake but please do let me know so I can fix it.
Thanks, Patty

You mean the big brick Union Cemetery sign at the entrance to the cemetery. Sorry, that is not my photo. It was put on by the person who set up the cemetery page. I don't think that can be removed on an individual's page anyway.

I have no issue removing photo or photos. But I am not sure which photo you referred to with "the gate". Two of the photos have gates in them. Let me know more specifically and it will be removed.

I think I will get rid of the Nancy. Sometimes you forget where you get things. I've looked all through the paper work I have and can't find it again. Oren's Father had Dellno and Dellno Had Ralph. Ralph was my husbands father, Dean Morey, who, by the way is a retired pipefitter who was also in the Marines in Viet Nam. Thanks for your help.

Thank you for the info on Isadora Morey. I changed my info on Oren's page. I actually have Icy as a nickname and the full name I have on my Ancestry page is

Nancy Isadora Rebecca (Icy) Cozad

What do you think of the Nancy part?? I can't find anything just now to show where I got it.
