RE: Re; Emma Spray.
No problem....and you don't have to tell me about mistakes I'm trying to clear up all the incorrect entries in Shabbona Grove Cemetery I've worked on the cemetery restoring it and now that I'm retired I'm trying to get it 100 % photographed and ONLY those buried there listed on Find-A-Grave. I'm down to having only 4 incorrect burials left to move but I don't just tell Find-A-Grave to take them out I track them down to where they really are and then tell them ! I have the Cemetery up to 85% photographed. No photo taking today we got an inch of snow !!! Jim

RE: re: Emma May Spray

I think this will clear up a lot ! I see that Francis Glossup is George's son so Spray is her maiden name !

RE: re: Emma May Spray
I got that a tad off she was a SPRAY then married a Glossup. I'll research this some more and see what I can find ! Jim

RE: re: Emma May Spray
Well I think you found her. I think her maiden name was Glossup then she married a SPRAY and when he died she married Mr. Housel. But if she is buried with her father George he is in the English Cemetery if she is buried with the child Jesse who only lived 2 years and has quite the monument she is in Shabbona Grove Cemetery but there is nothing on that stone to indicate she is buried there.

Emma Mae Spray Glossop-Housel
Good morning,
I just wanted to send you a quick message to let you know that I updated all of Emma's info over at Englosh Cemetery. So, it's safe to delete your memorial over at Shabbona. You can double check everything I updated and if I missed anything, just let me know!
Thanks and have a great weekend!

Thanks for the information and have added it to Leo's memorial. Found no memorial page for his father so just added it to (bio). Karen

Martin Housel
I transferred Martin Housel to you. I can't keep up with the family and it seems that you work with Jim on keeping them straight. The other Elizabeth (other wife of Benjamin) is not my listing so I can't do anything with it.

If you find I have other Housel's you would like just let me know.

I'm glad our research paid off. Good luck on your family treasure hunt. Dennis

Elizabeth Housel

In response to your email.

I've removed the maiden name of Dull and I've disconnected the parents and the children I can but you will have to remove Martin and Abraham.

I can't update the other one to connect her to Benjamin.

Johnson = Nichols cemetery
Hi - thank you for the information straightening me out conserning Johnson famlies at the Nichols cemetery - the reason I added " WHAT" information I did conserning the name Johnson was to try to follow the family of
Ida May Mosher Berry Johnson (1868-1944) buried there at the Nichols cemetery - she was the second wife of my grand father - any information you you might have conserning her would be of much interest to me as i am at a stone wall.

I have noticed we seem to share a simular interest in the Dunham families of the Nichols area ; my connection there is through my mother's side of the family -- I'm very willing to share information there if I could be of any help .
