RE: I. W. Peavy
Apparent that I have been looking at that same posting and not realizing they have not been proved out. Our family branch spoke of the connection with William the conqueror. It sounds as if a number of people poured resources in to research and I would have no idea as how to do. I am still working and my genealogy has been on and off over the years. I am considering doing the DNA testing which could produce answers or maybe more questions! Has anyone in your branch done the DNA study?

RE: I. W. Peavy
Hello, Lettie, Yes I descend from Ichabod of birth 1820. I used to travel for work in northern Illinois and have been to Horatio and Nehemiah grave down by Sycamore. I grew up in Vernon county Wisconsin where generations of my family are from. So we are related! Have you looked back to our Viking heritage?

I. W. Peavy
Hello, Lettie, Curious are you a descendant of I. W. Peavy? He would be my maternal GG Grandfather.

RE: Bettie Taylor
Unless Janice Mancini is over 100 years old these cannot be very close relatives. I wrote a "strongly worded" email to**just an example**
If I posted a memorial for a relative of yours and used the name on the DC, and it was incorrect. I would expect you to contact me and tell me the correct name, since you would have personal knowledge. Then I could correct the name, and make a notation on the memorial re: your input..
NOT to blatantly post a duplicate
NOT to remove my memorial, as it was posted first. I don't know what's going on, BUT... as we can see,
It's pretty easy to ruin a good thing.

RE: Bettie Taylor
It can be very frustrating! How could she have your older memorial removed?

Elliott, Walnut Grove Cem
Hi Lettie, thanks for your findagrave work. You did the memorials for John Edmund Elliott & wife Susan Helena "Lena" (Mills) Elliott, plus 4 of their children: Nora H., J. Jared, Edmund P., & Eula (Elliott) Schouten, all in Walnut Grove. I need two more Elliotts. 1900 Census, "Lena" enumerated to 8 births, 5 living, and in 1910, to 8 births, 4 living - that last one would be Edmund P, d. 1902. There are two unconnected Elliotts in Walnut Grove: Louie Hampton Elliott, b. unk, d. unk, and (your memorial) Lena S. Elliott, b.unk, d. unk. Any chance Louie and Lena S. are buried with the John Edmund Elliott family?

Possible correction
Thank you for your kindness in photographing and posting the tombstone for Kathryn Briegleb Jeffries and Carl Jeffries. Just wanted you to know Carl is NOT interred in Missouri. He remarried after losing dear Kathryn and was eventually buried at Woodlawn Cemetery, Shawano County, Shawano, Wisconsin. Long story, but these were my grandparents, and I am certain of my facts. Not sure that makes any difference in your entry, but if anyone is looking for Carl's final resting place, they won't find him in St. Clair. Please let me know if there's any other info you'd like. I'm more than happy to share what little I know of the family.
Thanks again!

RE: Ruth Emery
Although her social security death index and Washington state death index list dates of birth with no location, I have often seen this when those are "unknown" by the reporter. The 1930 US Census has her listed in Hoquiam with a birth place as Canada (English) and an arrival date TO the US in 1926. She is listed with father Roscoe A Burgess, mother Jemima Burgess, older brothers Lester D and Arthur C, and younger brothers Ralph S, all of which are also listed as birthplace Canada (English). If she was born in 1916, this would have made her about 10 when they came to the states. In Canada they also have 10-yr censuses but on the years ending in 1. So there is a corresponding census I have found in 1921 listing her in St. George Parrish, Charlotte, New Brunswick, Canada, with her father Roscoe Burgess, mother Jeanna (clearly one of these censuses is a misspelling) Burgess, and older brothers Morris, Lester, and Arthur. New Brunswick is listed as her birthplace in this census, so we can now be even more specific in updating her Find A Grave memorial. 🙂 Although Morris is not listed in the 1930 census with the family, it is likely because he had his own property and possibly even own family by this time.
