RE: Gertrude Poling Lones
My paternal grandma was Betty (Lones) Mcelheny. I know she had a twin brother and another sibling. The story I heard was that she left her children and they became orphans. Is there any more information on what happened to her?

H Wayne Ingram
death date of Fletcher Ingram
Hi,my name is H.Wayne Ingram, son of Fletcher Ingram. He was a brother of Henry Ball Ingram.
On Henry B. Ingram posting by you, you have my father, Fletcher listed as sibling. He was born
Feb 5 1902-died in 1952. You posted that he died in 1992 which is incorrect. I also believe you posted my father on the Ancestor web. You may
want to check both postings to correct his
death date. Any questions, please email me;
Phone 815 398 5619

I believe we are related, please advise, thanks

Georgee Tate Floral Park
mem # 50539052, this grave had no birth or death dates and his wife wasn't listed so I'm really not sure if it's the same George T Tate
I can remove my pics maybe this is someone else's husband.
There's some Tates we're not related to buried there. common last name.

I'd hate to have this be someone else. I can go to cemetery sometime & see sections plots etc.
I can't tell you that right now.

I was told not to enter new names for this cemetery

Evon Elizabeth Porter Ingram #48834496
I felt so bad for Elizabeth Porter Ingram #48834496. At a click of a button she became lonely when it was discovered she wasn't my father's wife (Patricia June Allen Ingram) and detached.
I searched the internet and discovered she was the 2nd wife of Thomas Fletcher Ingram #122394214. I have found their marriage record in Jellico, Campbell County, Tennessee, USA dated 15 Dec 1984. Rite of matrimony was solemnized by Rev. David A. Starling in Jellico, Tennessee. Evon Elizabeth Porter was her name on the marriage record. I have updated my Ingram Family Tree in

I have asked you a long while ago to remove this memorial as it was a duplicate. You didn't, so I ask the original person Betty J to delete hers as you had gone ahead and started to LINK people to yours.

Even 'tho she was first, she did as I requested. So you can now discard the request to delete your she has fixed the problem the hard way.

Photo of Sarah Ann Donaldson Russell
I just noticed the photo you added to my memorial of Sarah Ann (Foxworthy) Donaldson. You have it on the wrong memorial. The Sarah Ann Donaldson you are looking for is born in 1855, not 1828.

RE: Gertrude Poling Lones
I would love a copy of his death certificate.All I really know about him was that he was raised by an aunt and he took her last name Lones, and his body was donated to medical science. And Gertrude: My grandma (born 1928) was too young to remember, but her eldest sister Hazel told how their father, Ellis, was a Methodist? minister but was ill so my grandma, her twin brother Bob, sisters Hazel, Mary and brother Earnest had to stand in a line for bologna and bread. Hazel remembered seeing her mother, Gertrude, layering on dresses and coats and her kids never seen her again. My grandma and siblings were left with a welfare check, which they took to the store and bought candy.They were home alone for a few days before anybody noticed.CPS took them and put into foster homes. I was told that Grandma Betty and her twin brother, Bob, were always kept together, but they went to several foster homes because she didn't like they way the touched her and had to work on a farm. She was also made to wear banana curls.My grandma remembers her dad Ellis coming to visit them while in foster homes.I've done some reach on Gertrude and she left her kids around the '30s,possible with a man to Chicago. Thought to have committed suicide in the 50s. Grandma Betty married a guy with last name Stewart?, had daughter Patrica,then divorced. Married my grandpa Harold McElheny Jr July 7, 1951 and had Rebecca, and Robert(my dad). My grandpa adopted Pat. My aunt Pat died Nov 1, 1981,murder-suicide. Her husband Larry Edwards was drunk and they were fighting so my cousins went to the neighbors, then heard two gun shots. Cops found both of them with gun shots to the head. He was already gone, but she was still alive, but passed a few hours later waiting to be live lined. Family story was that there were two shot guns and he meant to grab the one that wasn't loaded just to scare her, but he grabbed the loaded one. Shot her, thought she was dead and panicked, then shot himself. My cousins Debbie and Jimmy were raised by my grandparents. My grandma died Jan. 28, 1999 of cancer. I would love to hear what you know about them.

I happened to notice that the year he died, on the headstone, reads 1991 and you have 1999.

Hi Penny, You've put a lot of time and work into Find A Grave. Great job - thanks. Your profile says you are searching for family but you never mention Ingram's. Elma Elizabeth Ingram was my grandmother. Her parents were Henry and Lovell Ingram and her grandparents were Mary M (Ball) Ingram and Fletcher T Ingram who you mention is your 2nd great grandfather. Fletcher would be my 2nd great grandfather as well. Please contact me at as I would love to chat with you about the Ingrams.

RE: Julia Bee Logan
Thanks, Penny, but I'm not related either. Just didn't want to see someone lost because their stone was indecipherable. Bee was her maiden name. Thanks for your help. Judith

Julia Bee Logan
Hi, Penny, memorial 55513072 with the stone you were unable to read is for Julia Bee Logan. She died in Idlewild, Yates Township, Lake County on 29 June 1936. She was born in 1877 in Bellville, Illinois. Her parents were John H. and Della Bee and her husband was Cliford (spelling is given as it is on her death certificate) Logan. Since the handmade stone is crumbling, I feel we need to get the necessary information on the memorial. Thank you for your attention. Judith
