|Revelation 21:4||Concerning Gardner Davis|
Thanks for contacting me concerning the Gardner Davis grave stone. So far I have been unable to add any other information. I had a picture of this grave stone but have been unable to locate it. I live 2 1/2 hours away from that area now but I hope to visit it again sometime soon. If I do, I will try to get another picture and any other information I can.
Thank you for posting the photos for our ancestors. I would love to some day go to this cemetery. It also has one of the Lewis and Clark Expedition members buried there. I am descended from the daughter of David and Malissa (Snodgrass) Brown. The daughter and her husband came to Nebraska in 1885.
Another cousin had found the connection of the 2 Brown brothers.
Thanks again for the photos.

|Sally Davis||Elmer Ellsworth Davis|
I think the only similarity between your grandfather and my father is the name. They were probably both named after the Civil War hero, Col. Elmer Ellsworth, who was one of the 1st Union casualties of the war. My Davis line is is pretty much all in the New Haven, CT area. None of the people you mention is in my family. If you're on Ancestry.com, my tree is there if you want to take a look. Thanks for contacting me. You never know when you might connect with a cousin.
My Grandfather was born "Elmer Ellsworth Davis."
Due to the similarity of his name and your Dads'and their relative age, I wonder if perhaps they may be cousins? There some other Ellsworth's" in our Davis family here and there as well. My Gramps was born in Seattle, WA. in the year 1900,to parents Ira Orton Davis and Grace Young Van Waters. His Davis family was from New York, and Connecticut. His grandfather was Orville Frederick Davis and his father was Jonathan Davis, before him, Gardner Davis, who was married to Elizabeth Ricketson. Her father was George Soule.
I enjoy meeting distant family and learning how we are all connected. I have more generations; I could list if you are interested.
|Diane Payne||Grace I. Young|
I transferred Grace and her husband to you.
|Todd Whitesides||Robert Brown|
The Robert Brown you mention in your message is my 5th-great-grandfather. I would be thrilled to know your connection to the family (through his brother David I would suppose). May I ask your sources regarding their parentage? Looking forward to hearing from you.
Recently requested a photo request for David Brown's grave and got a response from one of the local volunteers. She went out to the cemetery looking for his name, but was unable to find anything that was legible. Too many of the stones were worn away because of age. She did find records though showing he was one of the trustees for the church/cemetery when first organized. Posted the information on his memorial.
I hope you can link David and Malissa's son, your ancestor, to their memorials. I think I've found some of his other children from his 1st wife, and hope to link them to the father in the near future.

|CMR||RE: David Brown, Malissa Snodgrass|
I am so glad to hear from another relative of David and Malissa Brown. I've spent the last few days trying to trace their son, David T., who is your descendant. I suspect Malissa was living with her son when she died, and hope you may have an idea where she is buried. Looking forward in hearing back from you.
