I just wanted to thank you for making their memorials and adding the photos at the Belleville Cemetery. I was at a dead end after the 1930 and 1940 census records and didn't know what happened to them until I found your memorials on Find-A-Grave.

RE: John Ward obit
Every obit means I have one less to do. The editor from my hometown allows me to bring home the bound newspaper books starting in 1920 and I'm just about done with all those books - down to 15 left and then will go to the office and scan the older ones. Just wish I could find out where the 500+ obits I have in Word are located because that would be a great gift to me.

Thanks for sending John's obit and edits; obit has been added and edits accepted. I'm trying to work on adding obits to this cemetery and with your help it will be done quicker.

RE: Esther Mae Hicks Hagan Humann
Here is the answer to your question about memorial naming conventions. Your answer is at the end of this article.

What are your memorial naming conventions?

Memorial Naming Conventions: Non-famous Memorials
If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
Use a period after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.
Do not use any other punctuation within any Name Field.
Do not use Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names in any Name Field.
Suffixes, Prefixes, Titles, or honorary do not belong in any Name Field.

First Name
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial. Do not include titles or other prefixes in the First Name field.

Middle Name
Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

A familiar name of the deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes. A nickname is different from the real name (first or middle).

Maiden Name
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and is only used if the individual was married and took the spouse's last name as their new last name. If the deceased was never married, then the last name is placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

Esther Mae Hicks Hagan Humann
This is an unusual call but I'm going to leave her under the Hagan surname because on the big stone that is how she is buried and according to F-A-G guidelines that is how you are suppose to add them. The 2nd stone is the problem. I did link her to her 2nd husband that base is covered.

RE: Jessie Squires
Sharon, wow you're good ! And fast!! The info you got just like that ?! I'm impressed!

The name Jessie is very common in the family; there are several and it gets confusing. Then there are the male and female Jesse/Jessies. And the spelling variations for all!

In answer.. Jessie Squires, born around 1837 (husband of Catherine McManigal) is my gr gr grandfather. He also had a son Jesse (born around 1860; that grave may be Memorial# 114724685 because the dates and geographical area are logical). The last census I found him in 1910, he was 73, with his son Alfred Squires. Which made the dates on the memorial you put up seem to fit, but saddened me that he was at the "Poor farm" if it's him so I checked with you if there is more info.

It is through Jesse Sr's daughter Emma's marriage that (down the road) I came into being :-) But I have drawn up a blank as to her father's (Jessie Sr of 1837) parents, siblings or anything more about him. Nothing.

The internet does make the world a village, and I am so lucky to have so much available. I can't imagine who I would ask for birth certificates for Jesse Squires ( I live half way around the world away from the Kansas & Nebraska libraries and courthouses where some of my family originated) so I have to be totally reliant on modern technology for info. And most of all reliant on the amazing work of great people like you, who are uploading this info which allows someone like me to get all this at my finger tips . Thank you :-) :-)

RE: Jesse Squires
Hi Sharon,

Thank you for your reply and info.

Sure you can transfer the memorial to me if you would like/wouldn't mind. How is that done? I will assume he is the Jesse Squires I am looking for. But I have no names or any info on his family and was hoping that a death certificate (or marriage certificate) would give me a lead to his parents. Do you have any suggestions how to find his parents' names?

thanks again and wish you a great weekend
