RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 116284987
Thank you for the info. I had found Daniel's death certificate and the 1910 census record. I didn't have Barbara's death certificate though. Thank you for that one. I found the census to be interesting as Margaret is listed as a granddaughter and has the same last name as the boarder that lived next door to the O'Donnells. (Daniel's death notice in the Painesville Telegraph lists her as his daughter). I found something else online that I was unable to confirm and that was that Margaret's mother passed during childbirth. Her mother, I believe to be the one listed as Tressa / Theresa on 1900 census is not listed on 1910. I haven't been able to confirm the 1907 death. ( Was hoping I'd be able to print the notices from the Cleveland Necrology that you have listed. If you aren't related to the O'Donnell's, can I request a transfer of their memorials?

Find A Grave Memorial# 116284987
Hi, Have a question on the above memorial for Daniel O'Donnell. Find A Grave Memorial# 116284987. I see in your bio information, etc that there are reel, and record numbers and file numbers. Do you know where I can go to see these files and print them out? It would be very helpful in my family tree search for my grandchildren. Thank you.

Ann Eliza Smith Find A Grave Memorial# 65145555
Regarding Find A Grave Memorial# 65145555-Ann Eliza Smith. You have her parents listed incorrectly. Their names are Hophni Smith and Eliza Jane Spence. Just thought you'd want to know.

RE: Rebecca Groves
Great job. Fills in lots of blanks and has the connects that are proved by documents.

Look at the idea of the father's name being John Robinson Rader and mother Elizabeth Jane (Martin?) just didn't find a marriage. I actually was doing research on the Sparks family.

Thanks for all your work!
Was looking at the memorial for my 5th great-grandfather (Moses Hampton) and just wanted to say thank you for all the work you do - and have done - here on Find a Grave. I appreciate the memorials, photos and information you share. Hope your Holidays are the best.

RE: Laura Emily Willey Spellman
ref Laura Emily Willey Spellman b 1883 d 1945

You have her mother listed as Frances Ford as listed on Laura's death cert. I propose that this is in error. That Ford is actually the married name from Frances Maria Gilbert first marriage to Thomas J Ford on 11 Nov 1863 in Dorset. It was a short marriage as he died in 1864. On that marriage cert her name is listed as Fanny Gilbert. She then married Albert P Willey on 22 aug 1873.
Double check your transcription of the marriage of Arch d Spellman and Laura E Willey. My transcription says that her mother is Fannie Gilbert.

On the death cert f/n 6582 of Fannie Willey it has her birth as 24 jan 1843 Seneca Falls, Ny, her death as 14 feb 1924 Plymouth Twp, father: Lewis Gilbert, mother: Lydia Fitts, spouse: Albert Willey, buried Chestnut Grove, informant: Sophia Willey (sister to Laura E Willey).

In 1910 census Fannie Willey has her listed as married 2x, 5 children, 1 by Ford, 4 by Willey.

On death cert f/n 5553 of Fannie Jared Ford Osborn (step sister to Laura) b 28 dec 1864 d 1 jan 1922 Akron, father: Thomas Ford, mother: Fannie Gilbert.

on ohio birth & christenings index it lists Sophie Alice Willey(sister to Laura) b 19 Oct 1879 Plymouth, father Albert Willey, mother Fannie Gilbert

on ohio birth & christenings index it lists Andrew J Willey(brother to Laura) b 15 Jan 1876 Plymouth, father Albert Willey, mother Fannie Gilbert

on ohio birth & christenings index it lists Albert Lewis Willey(brother to Laura) b 10 Dec 1874 Plymouth, father Albert Willey, mother Fannie Gilbert

on ohio birth & christenings index it lists Laura E Willey b 22 Sep 1883 Plymouth, father A P Willey, mother Fannie Gilbert

It is understandable why a granddaughter might believe that the maiden name would be Ford, but I think not.

Therefore I believe that the mother of Laura Emily Willey Spellman is Frances "Fannie" Maria Gilbert.

RE: Halsey and Sara shipman
That is fine. I will keep mine as well. I will note yours. My mom really liked her grandmother so I will keep mine but I will note yours on it.

From now on I will check first before I add anyone. I am kind of new at this site and being sick I did not think of doing it.

Arden and Halsey was married to her. That is a story all by itself.

RE: Tuttle genealogy
Thank you for responding about the Tuttle genealogy.

There might not be anything you could do additionally. She was just so excited, and wanted to connect with you. I'll have her put your information into her database.

Thank you again. The information is priceless.

Please contact me via email about your Tuttle genealogy. I have a friend who is a direct descendant, and has just recently found this line. She is descended of Duran Hugh Tuttle, Sherman's brother.
Thanks for posting the fabulous bio on Sherman Tuttle.
