RE: William Cook
Hi Susan,

I changed William's DOB to the 22nd based on two records - one, Iowa death record and two, the obit. If you have not done it already, go to William's second wife, Mary Ann Ladd Cook, and find that William was memorialized in Grace Hill Cemetery with Mary Ann by another contributor to Find A Grave. I think it is appropriate that William Cook have two memorials, one in Vermillion and one in Hawarden.

Thanks again,

William Cook
Thank you, Susan, for letting me know about William Cook's burial at Bluff View Cemetery in Vermillion, SD. You jogged my memory in that I found the obituary I had posted for him at Ancestry which gives his burial as Vermillion. This was why I made his memorial for Bluff View. I have since added his obit there. At the same time I was able to link him to his mother, Mary Wayne Cook, also buried there. The Cook family seems to have had money issues most of their lives so perhaps could not afford a stone at the time.

Thanks again. I really do appreciate this,
Carolyn Wickens

Hi Susan,
I came across a headstone in the Carstairs Cemetery for B. Margaretta (Bruns) Poirier, daughter of Harry Bruns, (see #145130423). There is a family writeup and photos of her in 'Beyond our Prairie Trails, volume 2'

Webster memorials
Hi Susan,

Charles and Emma are transferred to you.

Please note when I used the terms "Jr. & Sr." that is was just to help in the understanding of which person I was writing about. At no time did I see "Jr. or Sr." used in the records.

As to the three wives of Charles Jr, I did not see any of those names near the Webster lot. I can also say that Findagrave members have cataloged Lakeview Cemetery with pretty good accuracy, so you might have to look elsewhere (unless the former wives married again, and had different surnames after Webster.) It appears that much of the family lived in Belding, and only returned to Lakeview for burial. Perhaps that is where you will find the wives. I will forward the names of these ladies to a person I met at the Library in Lakeview to see if they are listed in any index. If I find any information I will send it on to you.

Webster - Lakeview MI
Hello Susan,

Good news for you. I have located Charles A Webster 1846-1920 & Emma L Stewart 1853-1913. Ironically, when you sent me the note, I was only 70 miles from Lakeview, and I had enough time before my flight to travel up there to gather the information for you.

The direct answer to your question was that the two remaining markers simply said "Mother" and "Father." No other information. The Cemetery had no information at all, and believe it or not, the city only had the records listing them as "Mother" and "Father." Thankfully they have a wonderful library in that town, and I went through the various local archives and newspapers. Here is what I can tell you. Charles Sr. died in Belding, MI on March 17, 1920. Emma Sr. died in Belding, MI on June 6, 1913. Emma Jr (listed as "Miss Emma") died on March 23, 1910. No city listed, but it was implied to be Lakeview, MI. William died in Lakeview either on August 27, 1896 or September 3, 1896. The discrepancy is because the newspaper states the date of death as "Thursday, last." The newspaper was published on Friday, so it is unclear if the death occurred the day before or the week before.
Charles, Jr. has no local record, but his monument does list his birth and death dates. He is also listed as "husband" but no wife is buried there, so far as I can tell.

All the Webster I noted were listed as buried in Lakeview Cemetery.

If this helps, I also found a little information which might tie into the other children. The newspapers regularly listed the visitors to the city, and the names "Mr & Mrs Edward Webster of Belding" and "Mr & Mrs Ira Webster of Belding" and "Mr & Mrs Jay Pixley of Belding" were visitors of Charles Webster.

I updated a couple of the older photos, and also created memorials for Emma Sr. and Charles Sr. I have sent the date of death for Emma, Jr. to the person who maintains her memorial. If you will send me your member number, I will transfer Emma Sr. and Charles Sr. to you.

Edwin V. Andress
Please know that Captain Edwin V. Andress is, indeed, buried in Little Cottage Grove Cemetery in Onyx, CA. He moved there after the war and spent time as an actor and musician in that community.

The marker at Wildwood Cemetery in Chesaning- Saginaw County, MI is what is called a cenotaph - a marker placed to honor an individual even though the individual may be buried elsewhere. I am certain the Chesaning historians have placed the marker in Wildwood because of his excellent leadership skills for the Michigan Sharpshooter Company K in the Civil War.
