Bio and Links
I enjoy perusing The Gospel Messenger (first published in 1883) and other old publications of the Brethren Church. I often find interesting obituaries in these publications and enjoy sharing them with the Find a Grave community.

Surnames I am researching include Brubaker, Boyd, Wheeler, Garrett, Sullivan, Mobley, White, McGinnis, Duncan, Crump, Christie, Barnhart, Grisso, Flora/Flory, and Eller.

Hi Rebecca, I sent you an email regarding Mary Fonda and Rufus Beckner. If you don't see it please check your junk folder. Thanks!

RE: Ellen King Riffey photo request
That pretty normal with a middle name like King. I just got lucky finding the obit reference. Just wish we could get the obit itself, it would probably give us the parents' names.

Ellen King Riffey photo request
Hi Rebecca,
I wanted to let you know that there is no marker for Ellen. I saw your note on the memorial about more information, so I went looking. According to the site, she died 20 Dec 1937 as an infant, so its likely that King was her middle name. Considering where she is buried, she may be the daughter of Alma and Jessie Riffey (but she would have been a late-in-life baby for them). There is an obit for her from the Johnson County Democrat newspaper, but the Johnson County library is undergoing renovation until next year, and the microfilm collection at that library is unavailable until early 2016.

Philip Barnhart
Sorry it has taken me so long to add the obituary you sent to me regarding Mr. Barnhart - this has now been completed. I also created a memorial for his first wife, Catherine, and linked it to him as his first spouse. Thanks!

Martha nee Kaufmann Hollinger Obit
Thanks much for the obit you sent for Martha Kauffman Hollinger buried in Sharon Cemetery, Brant, Alberta, Canada. Very much appreciated. I've added it to her memorial with a note you contributed it, and also have tweaked the other info to for overall consistency. Wish I could figure out who her parents are and am working on it now I know her exact birthdate and place.

Best, Barry
