RE: Baldwin edits
Hi Melissa,

Thank you so much for transferring my g-g-g-grandparents' memorials to me. What a thoughtful gesture on your part. It will certainly make things a bit easier to link other memorials with them. I am happy to have the management of these sites.

RE: Baldwin edits
Hi Melissa,

Thank you for getting back to me.
I have been to Chester Co. several times doing family research. Johnson Caleb Baldwin and Hannah are my g-g-g-grandparents.

As I entered the birth locations into Find A Grave edit, I found exactly what you explained - Find A Grave does not have East Fallowfield Twp or West Bradford Twp located in Chester Co. - which we know to be the case. The County look up feature in Find A Grave did have those towns listed in other counties - so I mistakingly used their misinformation.

Thanks again,
Bonnie Collier

p.s. Hannah was born in Newlin Twp, in Chester Co., but I couldn't locate Newlin either.

Just curious. Are all these people you are making corrections on part of your family, or just random help providing info to Find A Grave?

RE: Emma Plank
OK I'll add them to the list of requests. It is kind of hard right now because many of the names on stones and even the stones themselves are covered with snow. I will keep my eye out for them whenever I go up there after the snow melts.

Your welcome.

RE: Emma Plank
Have you requested photos for the new memorials you set up. There are many Thompsons buried in Fairview.

Added by Ruebeewren on Mar 08, 2015 4:51 PM

RE: Emma Plank
I think I have it. If you set up a page for Emma Plank, I will post the photo there as well.

RE: Isaac Thompson
No, I am not related. I just kind of concentrate on requests from Fairview in Coatesville. I haven't been up there for several months, but went today. I was looking for another stone when I saw Isaac's, which is right along the roadway up there.

RE: Emma Plank
Oh so you think that Emma was her middle name and she went by that. It is also possible that he married twice and Emma Plank was his second wife. I have seen that before. Yes, let me know when you find out.

Added by Ruebeewren on Mar 08, 2015 11:53 AM

Emma Plank
On the document on Isaac Thompson's memorial page, it states that his wife's name is Mary Thompson, but on the grave stone it says he is buried with an Emma Plank. Do you know why that is?

Photo Request: Peoples
Mt. Zion is a very large cemetery. The cemetery releases plot information generally to family only. If you call them at the number listed on the cemetery's home page, they may give you plot or locations.

Tell them you are planning a visit. Any help you can provide for the location will help the photo volunteer. Thank you. Sandi

RE: John Thomas Boofter
Hi Melissa ~ The photo was passed down in my family with only John Boofter identified. We believe that the man on the left may be Edward Boofter, John's brother. Some information on him ~~~ Edward was born in 1843 and died in 1862.

Wounded at the battle of 1st Manassas and died of typhus at Army field hospital in Hagerstown, Maryland. Body is believed to be in a common grave burial in Hagerstown area.

Civil War records show an Edward Boofter in Baltimore Light Infantry, Volunteers AND McGowan's Independent Co., Patapsco Guards, Infantry, A-F.

Melissa, I don't think that I made those links. I don't have an obit or anything for him. With Find A Grave now allowing edits, I get many requests and I usually accept them. I don't have the time to verify. I believe, even though I shouldn't, that the requester did their homework. If you have the source info and you want to change them, I will accept the change. Mike

RE: THANKS new McCullough memorials
She is on my tree :> Thanks... I had found her husband in the Goshen Friends' cemetery earlier am glad to find her too.

RE: THANKS new McCullough memorials
Melissa --

Thanks for these details. I am still confused about William Strickland. Not sure if he is a child of Esau Strickland and Ann McCullough because he is not listed in the 1850 census with the family. Even through he would have been about 8 years old at that time. I thought it was perhaps because he had died young. But if he is buried near a wife (possibly two), that theory doesn't hold true. I was glad to see the memorial you added for Elizabeth Brenholtz Strickland Hill as she was the other child from the Esau and Ann family that wasn't in the 1850 census (she was married by then).

Thanks tons for all your help. This family research is certainly addictive. Jennifer

Thank you for sharing the information.... I knew a bit already about the rift over serving in war and slavery, thus the Hicksites.... many Quakers wanted to do more than just not owning them..... glad to hear how this turned out.
It is now on the memorials.
In Gratitude,

Thanks, Melissa, but that's not necessary!! :-)I'll keep in touch!

THANKS new McCullough memorials
WOW! You're the best! I see you found and added the Rebeccah McCullough I wondered about (#142356855) as well as two other McCulloughs: James (#142359250) and Elizabeth (#142360109). The Rebeccah is for sure the family I'm researching and James and Elizabeth may be... I need to do some further research. THANKS again!

"If you give a mouse a cookie he'll want milk to go with it"... another question I've run into. Esau (#140902973) and Ann McCullough Strickland MAY have a child William Cooper McCullough (1842-1844?) that I have not found definite record for. He is perhaps buried in Grove Methodist Cemetery. On the
Grove Cemetery record I found on ancestry there is a William McCullough listed right under Esau McCullough's record. Section B lot 88 is the burial information on the record. If you have any further info on William I would really appreciate it.
