Hi Shannon. I transferred Charles Kraemer & his wife Vesta over to you so you can update. Have a great day!

Dawsons at Terre Haute
Thank you. I couldn't decide where to place Sadie - I should have a picture of her stone!

Lacey Boyer Dawson's parents are buried at LaHarpe Cem. I'm almost sure she's buried at LaHarpe, but I haven't found her stone yet. I found one of her siblings at a different cem, so I'm not placing her at LaHarpe until I'm sure.

RE: Dawson/Finch family
Well, Lacey Ann (Boyer) Dawson died in LaHarpe, IL on June 6, 1915. James Oliver Dawson died in LaHarpe, IL on June 11, 1912. There SHOULD be Illinois death records online for both of them if that's where they died, but I can't find them which means a name was probably spelled wrong on the death certificates. Lacey was spelled Lacy, or James was called Oliver. Based on when he was born, there should be a Civil War record for him, but I can't find one. And - they're not buried in Henderson Co. so it must be Hancock County. I'll keep looking!

oliver & lacy dawson
I will look around for James Oliver & Lacy Dawson. I spend a lot of time wandering around cemeteries taking pictures since I retired so maybe I can find them. I also just added a memorial for Martha Penny Summers, if you'd like to manage her memorial, if you're interested in the Penny family. I don't know how I missed her when I did her husband's memorial - I had the picture of her stone & everything.

Josiah Penny
Apparently I am having some issues with Find A Grave tonight as it keeps sending my messages before I am done typing. LOL. I have transferred care of Josiah Penny to you. Sorry about the first message, my inbox sent your original email to my junk folder and I just happened across it. So sorry for the confusion.

Finch Family at Terre Haute
Well, of all the times I took pictures at TH, I only took pictures of the Finch stone once - 02 September 2012. But at least I did, that day!

Ernest Martin Finch
That's Ernest Martin Finch who married Lucy Brazelton. His father was James Martin Luther Finch, I think. I'll have to check. I haven't actually found Ernest Finch's burial yet.

William & Ellen Finch
I should have pictures of the Finch stones by now - I'll check again and add them, if I can find them. I may not have had them in 2010 but I've taken pictures at Terre Haute 5 more times since then so I should have them.

Always glad to reunite the folks at Terre Haute with their descendants! I just did another Finch stone at Monmouth Cemetery. Martin Finch's wife, Lucy, her daughter Juanita, and Juanita's daughter Mary Lou Welty. I haven't had time to look them up yet to see how they are related in the Finch family.

RE: Judith McKay
You're welcome. I looked to see if I had an obit for her, but I don't. I did a lot of research when I photographed this cemetery hoping people would find their relatives.

RE: Lovisa Wright Anderson
Oh my! I do apologize. I receive about a dozen Find a Grave messages each day. Yours was the top one, which I opened and read. Then I noticed another message about Lovisa (yes, the same Lovisa), opened it and read it. It was a praise for the information that I had found on the family and a transfer request for Lovisa and her daughter Lizzie. I never looked at the contributor's name for that message, never dreaming that two people would be messaging me about the same Lovisa in the course of one day! I thought it was you. I don't know if you are acquainted with this contributor (Bryan Altouse), but he is apparently also descended from Lovisa. Here is the link for his contributor page, if you want to contact him and compare notes.

Sorry for the mix-up. Guess I better respond to Bryan's message!

RE: Lovisa Wright Anderson
Hi Shannon, I believe Lovisa's headstone says:
MAR 11 1870
(George's initial looks like an S with the wear on the headstone, but could easily be a C).
I can certainly understand your wanting to have control of her memorial and her daughter's, but as you have so nicely commented, I really did do a lot of research on the family and would prefer to keep them, as they are so distant in your family tree's past. That being said, please feel free at any time to add photos and send along any additional info you may find. I am always glad to update memorials.

RE: William F. Kramer
Hi Shannon

Nice to meet you!!!

From my research, I do believe that his parents were Frederick and Margaret Krenzel Kraemer but I do not have 100% proof yet. I know he was born in Sedalia, MO. My mom says he never spoke about his family much. He was a very quiet, soft-spoken man. He and my g-grandmother were complete opposites :)

I'd be more than happy to compare notes with you.
