RE: Wiley mausoleum
Very interested in your article & I would be thrilled to get a copy of it. The cemetery is about 10 miles away and I will try to go there today or tomorrow & get the best photo I can. I know I won't be able to get inside as they just don't do that and the doors if I remember are solid with no glass.
Your project interests me as my husbands 2nd Great Grandparents, the Berry's, came to Oregon in 1852 during the Oregon Land Donation claim with their whole family including adult children who were married. One of the daughters. Sarah Ann Berry (born in Missouri) died on the Oregon Trail in 1852 at age 21. She was buried around The Dalles along the Columbia River but no stone of course. She was married to Robert Armington "Bog" Irvine and had a child who later became a physician in Albany.
I will get the picture to you as soon as I can get there. Oh wait....I need your email as it may give a better photo than posting on Find A Grave.

RE: Elias K. Wiley mausoleum
Apologize for not answering right away but didn't see request until just now. Would be happy be get you a bigger picture of this maus. Weather is not good just now as cloudy and rain scheduled for days. Do you want a sunny photo or from a different angle? Any suggestions? How soon do you need it?

RE: Caleb Booth #148515241
Sorry..I don't really know....assume (although that shouldn't be done either) that it is just his death date and year at death. I looked on the internet for any inscriptions for Scantic Cemetery but could find none.

I'll make a note and the next time I am up there...will see if I can push them apart and read the lower half.

RE: Caleb Booth #148515241
Hi Richard,
I have made additions to his memorial page regarding his death and the likely possibility of this being a cenotaph. It is an interesting and sad story but he was doing what he wanted and was a part of the now famous gold rush.

I have included your contributor's number to his memorial page as other related genealogists may want to contact you.

If you need any research/information/gravestone photos etc in CT...please let me know. It would be a pleasure to assist you.

Good luck with your own genealogy,

RE: Caleb Booth #148515241
I added the gravestone entries to the Scantic Cemetery East Windsor CT from the Hale Listings..and his name was listed with the death date. I don't know for sure if he is buried in East Windsor CT or if his gravestone is only a memorial or cenotaph. If you feel it is possibly a memorial gravestone, I can certainly include your details of his diary/death with credit to you for all your research and his likely being buried in Nevada.

Let me know,

Hi Richard, I added the info and credited you with it. Thanks for letting me know. I've wondered before if they actually brought John Cochran's body to Ohio and Riley died even further away. Thanks again. Mary

Masters in Lone Fir
You asked for photos of Mary Nevada and Lewis L as well as your photo request for Mary S. I created memorials for Lewis and Mary (any idea who Lewis Russell, also buried in G1N, is? He has no marker) and will post photos of Mary S in the next few minutes. I've linked them all to Wm Masters who is buried in Riverview with his second wife.

I am getting ready to post a picture of Carrie's Headstone. Needless to say it has deteriorated somewhat. I have taken several pictures and when I get a chance I will post them. This was very interesting, when I took the pics today they were having a historical walk at the cemetery and her site was marked

RE: H S Webb grave
That would be great to see these articles. It's interesting the differences. IOOF Cemetery in the Filer Cemetery and He is listed in the Twin Falls Cemetery as Block 14 Lot IOOF to which there is no IOOF section in this cemetery. I will be meeting with the cemetery sexton to hash this out and come up with something.

RE: Memorial #51523086, Dr. Thomas Small
Thank you for the thoughtful note regarding Dr. Thomas B. Small. I added the information (giving you credit) to his biography. The Woodlands Cemetery, where his monument is, wasn't open at the time of his death. Much of the family was disinterred out of the old Turnpike Cemetery and moved to Woodlands on November 17, 1858. He is not listed as being moved, giving further support to his body not having been brought back to New York.

I entered the memorial from the "Marion County Illinois Cemetery Inscriptions With Genealogical Notes Book #4". I believe all of the listings in the book were done from grave markers so I assume there is one for Julia as well as Phillip and Ann their daughter because all are listed. The book says the are buried in Cemetery 1 - Block 3 - Row 21 - spaces 10, 11, & 12. I do not live in Illinois so I cannot confirm it for you. You could put in a request for a photo of the markers; I know that several people in that area are very good about fullfilling those requests.

I have several family members buried there and that is why I have tried to enter as many memorials for that area as I can. I need to get back to work on entering more.

RE: #103775036 Joseph Stokes

RE: Thomas Riggs #111078106
Sorry but I don't know whether or not there is a headstone/marker in the cemetery where he is buried.

Added by Dianne McFerran on May 07, 2015 5:38 PM

Thank you for sending me the interesting source. It seems the information may have come from her son, Benjamin Hilliard Beckett.

It reads much like David Jolly may have immediately returned to his home ground, at the death of his wife - deciding that going west, at an advanced age, was not so inviting after all.

It sounds as though he probably returned to bury his wife alongside their young view of the speculative outcome - I will change her death place to Omaha and use the Worth County historical information as a source. Thank you so much for you interest in locating these elusive burials.

I don't recall if we have corresponded in the past, but you may be interested in my "non cemetery" memorials and the great plains pioneers virtual cemetery - I have tried to make them as accurate as I could. Thanks for your help. Cheers, Shirleen

Added by history4sure on Apr 26, 2015 1:59 PM

I have no other data on Experience Call Jolly - her last child was born at Layayette County, Wisconsin & her husband is found there in 1855 and in 1875.

Also, their first son died there October 1856 - I am assuming, from your statement about her death place, that you have a source putting them on the California Trail during the interval?

Those old cemeteries were often poor record keepers, so I have no notion as to whether her stone could be a cenotaph. Sorry to be of such little help.

Cheers, Shirleen

Richard - I was not aware of the diary. The location I created was based on a description from a family history. I'd like to adjust the location of the grave site. Do you have a more specific area?
