Your photo request for Sadie E McDowell
Holy Cross is HUGE. Impossible to locate a grave without the Burial Plot. Please call the TOLL FREE Phone: (888) 919-7926. Ask for Burial Plot. It is a TOLL FREE call. Please. Volunteers need the Grave Location. The Office will NOT allow us to ask for more than 2. There are over 45 without the Burial Plot.

RE: Robert A. Best
Thanks! I found him but sometimes it gets confusing. I have added 25,000 memorials to findagrave so it's not always easy. I love the photo you added, it's wonderful. What a shame that he lost his life at such a young age. Is he a relative? I could transfer him to your care if you wanted.

RE: Robert A. Best
Thank you for the additional info. Just a tip, if you want info added to a memorial, use the edit tab on the persons page. That will generate an email that will take me directly to that persons memorial. Each person also has a unique id # that I can use to properly find someone. I hope this is helpful to you in the future. Looking for someone by name is difficult as there are millions of entries on this site.

Dean Reid
RE: Jacob Sims
Hello Ellen,

I would be happy to share info on Jacob Sims and his descendants. I have a tree in ancestry also that is public "Kinfolks and the Old South". I sent you an invitation to view it. One of my First Cousins, Bobby Sims, did most of the ground breaking research back in the 70's and 80's so I owe much of my info to him. We are grandsons of Jacob Sims (1793-1879) his son Jacob Leonard Sims (1831-1862)and his son Jacob Randolph Sims (1859-1925).

RE: Effie Sims
If you click on Dean's name on Effie Sims Reid's memorial (at the bottom where it says "Maintained by: Dean Reid") it'll take you to his bio/messages page. Then just click on "Leave Public Message" to create a message for him.

Hope this helps,

p.s. if you're related to Dean and Effie Sims, then we're related too! I'm a Folmar descendant and Jacob Leonard Sims' wife was Jane Ann Elizabeth Folmar (my 1st cousin, 3 times removed).

RE: Effie Sims
Did you mean this message for me? It starts off with "Dean Reid - " so I'm wondering if perhaps you meant to send him the message?

Best regards,
Nancy (Folmar) Reykdal

p.s. and yes, Effie Louise Sims Reid is a daughter of Jacob Randolph Sims, son of Jacob Leonard Sims.

Re: John Fowler
I've added the birth month and year, but, if you do the math, your date of April 4th doesn't match the inscription on the stone: "AE 75 yrs 9 mos
& 28 days" - so I'm leaving the day out. Hope that's okay with you! :-)

possible valley cemetery link
Hi Ellen

I would love to see what you have. We stated painting the fence by had without having the broken portions fixed. The restoration company charges $12,000.00 per panel for restoration and painting. Not an amount we can afford at this point.
Please let me know a good time to stop by, your effort is much appreciated

It is so positive for all. I am the Historian at the Valley Cemetery, it is so neglected and vandalized. I am working my way through it so if you retire and want to lend a hand and if you live hear by let me know.

There is so much history there, especially from the early boom time when Manchester was growing and the immigrants were flowing in ... wonderful stuff and traditions to be found.

The first buried was in July 1841 in a 20 acre parcel given to the City by Amoskeag Mfg. Church yards were full and the City was thinking we just can't have grandma buried in a backyard any longer .... good stuff.

Thank you for unclaiming, they are added already.

I love doing this and browsing through cemeteries. It makes me proud to bring families together and preserve our history.

Thanks again

RE: Re John Foley
In regards to "The stone is for Martin J, Mary L, Mary G, Gladys and Sylvester. Was I on the right track?" I'm not sure which John Foley I sent the photo request for but I do believe you are on to something. John M. Foley did have sons named Martin and Sylvester. I don't know of any daughters named Mary but one of them could have been the spouse of Martin as I don't know his spouses name. Alternatively Mary L could be John's daughter Lula M. As for Gladys (or maybe even Mary G) Sylvester had a daughter named Genevieve M. It is possible she went by either Gladys or Mary. There is also the possibility there were other children that died too young to be in the census's. Without knowing the dates on the headstones I can't be sure. If you check John's memorial (95232196) you should be able to match up any of the dates I have with those on the headstones. Or if you took photos or noted the dates you could send them to me and I'll match them up.

Thanks for all your help,

Heather (~.~)
