|Brenda Todd||RE: William Shelley|
I have access to Ancestry at our local library. At home I use the LDS website.I have found some stuff through the Henry County website.
What information have you found? Is it Shelley family or McDowells? I was able to trace the Mcdowell side back pretty far but I cannot find William Shelleys parents, or his siblings. At first I was convinced he was the son of Richard Shelley - but now I think he must be the son of one of Richards brothers?
WEll, you certainly have me interested in what you have found.
You can e mail me directly if you wish.
|Brenda Todd||RE: William Shelley|
Dennis - thank you so much for responding.
No, I did not know about the Shelley reunion - 84th that's amazing!
Have I given you enough info on William Shelley? I do have the census from the years he lived in Henry Co. If the census is correct it list his birthdate as 1826. Do you suspect this is incorrect? I do hope to solve this mystery!
Thanks for taking an interest. We live in Virginia Beach, VA. but I was born in Indiana.

I appreciate your taking the photo of her gravestone for me and I saw you had applied some chalk to a second photo. Were you able to distinguish the year, bob 20 Aug ?
I was able to find a copy of the book "Hardy and Hardie Past and Present" which I'm going to look at today- labeled as a reference book so have to look at it at the library- at least I'll have the opportunity to see what was written. Have a nice day and thanks for your help, bob
|Brenda Todd||William Shelley|
I am researching my family history, and came across your book "Richard Shelley Family History". I cannot locate my ancestor, William Shelley. I am almost positive that he is related to the Richard Shelley family as he was born in Iredell county, NC. and moved to Henry County, IN. and is buried there. I can't seem to connect the dots regarding Williams connection. I cannot figure how he is related, so hope you can help me. Here is all I know about William:
I believe his middle initial is B. William B Shelley b.May 1, 1826 in Iredell county, NC. and died in Henry County, IN.March 3, 1890.
William was married to Elizabeth Moss Shelley also born in NC. in 1826 and died in Henry County, IN. Aug 23, 1904.
I have found both of their obits, does not mention who his parent are, only that he moved with is parents to Ohio at the age of two, and then to Henry County at the age of ten.
William and Elizabeths daughter, Martha Jane Shelley b. 1851 in Henry County, and married Wm Andrew Mcdowell ( another early Henry County family)Martha Jane Shelley and Wm. Andrew Mcdowell are my gr gr grandparents.
I appreciate any info you can send me – thanks.

|Kristie Moore||RE: Jesse Bowen|
That would be awesome! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
|Carolyn||RE: Just Checking In|
I'm so sorry I haven't been on much help lately and have taken so long to get back to you. I am getting by, thank you. Everything has just been a whirl wind the last few months. My half sister Micaela sadly took her life in October, and I think it has really taken affect on myself and my family. I hope all is well with you? Oh, and feel free to use any photos I have taken; I generally ask people cite me as the photographer, so when used for research, it gives the work a citation to point to.

|Lois Harriman||Peter & Sarah Oman Photo Request|
Peter & Sarah Oman are not buried in Schoolcraft Township Cemetery in Vicksburg, MI. They are buried in Schoolcraft Township Cemetery in Schoolcraft, MI. This is a case of duplicate memorials and confusion over the different cemeteries under the administration of Schoolcraft Township. Both creators appear to be inactive too. Their memorials (#45836249 )include photos. If you need confirmation about which cemetery is the correct one go to "http://www.kalamazoogenealogy.org/Cemeteries/Search.htm" and do a search of Oman. They have pictures of the stones there too.
|Allyn Spear||Willhide Memorials|
I was able to get out to photograph the Willhide and Wade memorials, although the Iowa weather has not been very cooperative so they are not "beautiful" pictures, so I do apologize. With regard to Joseph Willhide's monument, you can probably see that the engraving is quite worn and barely readable. Although probably not until the Spring, I plan to get back out to that cemetery and make some rubbings of some of the older markers to see if I can read any information. I will be sure to update you with anything I find.
|Johanson3J||RE: Louisa Bell|
Hi Dennis, I am still working on this, but her name was Eliza Jones, born about 1805 in Buffalo, Erie, New York, and died 20 May 1878 in Toledo, Lucas, Ohio. I haven't found a F.A.G. memorial for her yet, but am still looking as I do not want to duplicate one if it's there. I'll be sending you a SAC once I get it confirmed. Thanks again for all you do. Janet Johanson
