Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thanks to the many distant cousins and fellow "find a gravers" for helping me research my extended family. I've been working for a couple of years to identify the first 7 generations of the Johannes Hunsaker family tree. In the process, I've met many, many great relatives and greatly appreciate the unsung heroes who help document the millions of graves on Find a Grave.

I enjoy hooking up and sharing information with any cousin - no matter how distant we are. I willingly will share my GEDCOM and other files for anyone who desires. Any pictures I have taken may be used by anyone without asking permission nor do I need credit for anything I contribute to your memorials.

Pearson transfers
Chad, my sincere apologies for getting these transferred to you so late. My daughter was hospitalized during this time and I fell very far behind on my mail. Sorry again, but they're all yours!

Hiram Crockett #88947276
As a project of the Genealogical Society of Craighead County Arkansas the death notices published in the following newspaper (published in Osceola, Mississippi Co., AR) are being transcribed. Since you maintain the memorial for this person we thought you might like to have a copy of the death notice.

The Osceola Times, Friday, 9 August 1935, page 1.
H. M. Crockett died at the home of his son, Fred Crockett, near Keiser Wednesday afternoon supposedly from a complication of ailments and following a congestive chill during the preceding night.
The body was taken to the old home, Maynard, Arkansas where funeral services were conducted by Rev. W. A. Goodwin, pastor of the Christian church and interment made in the Maynard Cemetery where two of his children, daughters, rest.
Mr. Crockett was 74 years old and had been in poor health for some time, suffering from malaria and kidney trouble. He is survived by his wife and four sons, Fred and Russell, both of Osceola, Clovis of Wilson and D. R. of Pocahontas.

RE: Warren Langford
I believe so. I would have to go back and look at my photo, but that sounds right. I just took the photo because I knew you were interested in Hunsaker.

RE: Warren Langford
I will be looking through old newspapers in the next few months-weeks and will see if I can come upon anything regarding Warren.

Also, noted a Hunsaker buried in the Lafayette Cemetery near Brock, NE last week while out taking F.A.G. photos. Noticed it because of your query and also because it is not a common name in this area. Will email it to you if you would like to investigate it.

Something that you could do to help find Warren is to request a death certificate from the NE Bureau of Vital Statistics. Of course, they charge for their services! I believe that anyone can get a death certificate for someone who has been dead for 75 years. This info might also be available through the NE State Historical Society, but I don't know. Check both websites for details.

Warren Langford
Any possibility of his gentleman, son of MA and WC Langford being buried in Sheridan also? The family did have four spaces in that Section 1 location.

If you can give me any hint as to his DOD, I can research him and see what I can find out. Would start by trying to find an obit for Roy L. Langford and see if it mentions a brother.

Sorry to clog up your message board....I am just so excited to finally solve a mystery! Now If we only knew if Wiley has ever had a stone or not and where it went....hmmm................

Wiley & Mary Ann Langford
I just emailed you the text of the newspaper article. I also suggested edits as to the burial spot of Wiley and Mary Ann.

Our Veteran's Service officer will see about getting an appropriate Veteran's marker for Wiley, if indeed he has never been issued a military stone in the past. The VA will not get spouse stones for Civil War Veterans. If you are interested in getting a small stone for MA, please let me know and I will get you the information about a local monument dealer. Small stones are $500.00 or less there.

If he did have a stone at some point, the VA will not provide a replacement.

All it took was knowing who to ask, document he was buried in Sheridan and about a half-hour of going through the record book for the oldest sections page by page!

Wiley Chapman Langford
Making progress.....Veteran's Service officer has Wiley listed as a Civil War Veteran buried in Sheridan Cemetery. DOB 8/27/1835 DOD 7/29/1908
In our record books, four spaces were sold to a Langford. It is in Section 1, which would have been one of the only two sections that were open in 1889 when Wiley's wife died.

The only notation in the record book is an X in one space where Mrs. Langford was probably buried.
Doubt if any stones, but will go out and look just in case.

If he has no stone, Veteran's Service Officer will see that he gets a Civil War Stone, if possible. Funny----Veteran's Service Officer just walked in here. He is bringing me newspaper article about Wiley!!!!

I think this is a Eureka Moment!!!!! Will send you another message with what I find out!!!

FYI, the cemetery record has her surname as Dotson, and her headstone has Marston.

RE: Langfords
There are 31 cemeteries in Nemaha County. If I could somehow find where and if Wiley Langford owned property, it would be a clue as to where to look. For example, if he lived in the NW part of the county, I would start looking at the cemeteries in those areas. I see that Alroy L. Langford was Wiley's son. Alroy's wife was a Codington, whose family was the founder of the telephone service in Auburn. It is quite interesting that there is a creek, Codington Creek, that gets its start in the waterway on our farmstead just SW of Auburn.....small world! I will have to see if the Codington's actually owned our property at one point in time or not. I think though that the creek is named because the Codington property (which is still in the family) is where the creek ends and runs into the Nemaha River.

I looked through Ancestry.com and Genealogybank.com last evening. Wiley Langford did draw a Civil War pension. I will also check with the Veteran's Service Office here in the county. He has done extensive research to make sure all veterans are honored on Memorial Day and he may have further information.

Don't give up hope yet!!!
