|Sue Siegmund||I believe I've got a DNA match!|
Hi remember me? We talked about Sarah Baker Willet died in Oregon recently. I'm really excited because I have a DNA match to the exact same man who was the father of the Sarah Ann Baker who was in Kosciusko County Indiana right before the marriage of my Benjamin Willet to a Sarah Ann Baker. It's a low confidence match, but still, the exact same guy?? I just feel pretty confident that it is correct. John Baker b. 1799 in Virginia, died 1870 in Tama County Iowa, married to Priscilla Coombs, b. 1797 in Virginia, died 1863 in Tama County, Iowa.
Another factor that made me think this is the right family is their inclination to travel! They spread out all over the place!
Well, I'm putting this in and going to wait a few days and go back and see if I don't have a bunch more hits and ones with more confidence. Gosh I'm excited. Thanks for listening.

Do you know where his parents, Charles and Mary "Polly" King Jones are buried? They were my 4th great-grandparents. Their daughter, Elizabeth "Betsy" Jones (Silvester Webb) was my 3rd great-grandmother. She died abt. 1820-1822. I don't know where she was buried either? Any chance any of them are buried at Ridgeway Cemetery?

|Rest in God||Hi Alice|
The appointment went ok, I think I am now hoping for more than I will every get. It all pales now in the death of Danielle my daughters best friend. We are so devastated, nothing else matters. I sent you a letter, hope it arrived.
|Sue Siegmund||RE: Hello Sue|
That's so nice of you but I'm afraid we may never find her parents. Benjamin Willet and Sarah Ann Baker were married 1851 in Kosciusko, Indiana. I have their marriage license but no parents names were filled in. The funny thing is there was a Sarah Ann Baker living in Kosciusko with her family in 1850, born in Ohio, although it was 1827 and not 1832-33. It would be easy to say oh there she is! except that her parents were born in Virginia and on the two censuses I have, the 1880 Federal and 1885 Nebraska, she says her parents were born in Pennsylvania and New York or Pennsylvania and Ohio. It could still be her, but I'm not sure yet. I have a DNA test on Ancestry that I hope one day will connect me to that family.
Thanks again for at least letting me find her date of death and final resting place!

Thank you for the info for his wife; if you have a copy of his obituary would you please post it on his memorial, Find A Grave Memorial# 33982888.
|Karin Couch||RE: Hi|
Oh my gosh!
We have Glen R. Dupuy Born 5/26/1883 Died 6/13/1937
Block 10 Lot 8B Space 4.
We have been up a couple times and a friend of mine is director of another older cemetery here in town and offered to help try and locate but haven't had the time. It truly is a beautiful cemetery and I would like to eventually put a marker on his grandfathers site. If we could get names of people around that have markers I am sure we could find him. Does the board have grounds clean up days ect?
|Deborah J Nichols||RE: Hello again|
I have a copy of the obit stating that interment will be in the Laurel Hill cemetery and at the time of death she was living with my grandfather, James A Mellott, and died in his home at 232 Seventh Avenue East. The clipping has a handwritten date that appears to be "16th of Sept".
Now, Benjamin Mellot, is another story...and no one has found the whereabouts of that man! He ran off after the 7th son was born...so, there is still research to do!

Came across this and I thought of you and so many others, hope you don't mind me sharing the poem with you ~ Yo
A Few After.....
A few minutes after his birth.....
I could hear his announcing scream.
I couldn't believe he was finally here,
The realization of my dream.
A few hours after his birth.....
I held him so close to my chest.
Somehow that little boy let me see,
A special love that never left.
A few days after his birth.....
I held his tiny little hand.
I told him there would be lots of things
That I would help him to understand.
A few weeks after his birth.....
He had that sparkle in his eyes,
And when he showed me that little smile,
I thought that I would surely die.
A few months after his birth.....
He was just beginning to learn.
He didn't like me to go away,
And he cried until I returned.
A few years after his birth......
I still couldn't believe he was mine.
We talked and laughed and went for walks.
We had so many special times..
A few after.....
A few minutes after his death.....
I didn't know I needed to scream.
I thought that he was still safe and here...
I didn't know the truth of my dream.
A few hours after his death.....
I felt a strangeness within my chest.
Something was wrong that I couldn't see.
God! I didn't know that he had left.
A few days after his death.....
I held his cold and lifeless hand.
There were just so very many things
That I could not fully understand.
A few weeks after his death.....
That sparkle stolen from my eyes,
No longer to see his beautiful smile.
I never, ever thought that he would die.
A few months after his death.....
There was so much I needed to learn.
I was confused when he went away,
And I still waited for his return.
A few years after his death.....
I still wish that he could be mine,
To talk and laugh and go for walks.
I miss those special moments in time.
A few after.....
A few minutes after MY death......
Once again I will hear him scream,
"Hey Mom, it's me, I'm over here,
And Mom, this time it's not a dream."
A few hours after MY death.......
I'll hold him close again to my chest.
He'll look at me and say... "Now see?",
It doesn't seem so long since I left."
A few days after MY death.....
He will gently take me by the hand,
And show me all the glorious things,
And help me to understand.
A few weeks after MY death.....
I'll see that sparkle in his eyes.
Once again he'll warm me with his smile,
And say... "You see, Mom, I didn't die".
A few months after MY death.......
Together we'll have so much to learn.
We'll never have to go away,
Or long for each other's return.
A few years after MY death.....
Forever he will always be mine.
We'll talk and laugh and go for long walks,
Because we'll have nothing...... but time.
