|Laura Whistle Cates Duncan||Houge Cemetery|
Lucy, A great deal of clearing/cleanup has taken place in Houge Cemetery this winter. Once the temperatures warm a bit, the cleanup will shift to "fine tuning" mode. Gary O'Daniel pointed out W.R. Kirby's marker to me (your memorial #25284236). He expressed a desire to learn more about W.R. Kirby so I did some searching on Ancestry last evening and was able some information. I'm hoping you'll add it to Mr. Kirby's memorial.
W. R. Kirby is William R. Kirby
He was a Union soldier with the rank of private
He was mustered into service on August 25, 1862. At that time his residence was Perry County, MO. He was mustered out of service on June 10, 1865.
He was married to Nancy C. Kirby. She filed for pension benefits as a widow on November 11, 1895.

William R. Kirby died on September 6, 1895.

Thanks much, Laura Duncan

Sarah Jane Boyd was first wife of my great grandfather Frances E. Moore. She's buried in Old Preston Cemetery, Randolph County, IL.
There are two Find-a-Grave Memorials there for her: Nos. 1788407 and 1788409; the data are identical on both.
|JOHN SCHMIZ||RE: Nellie Ohms|
OK. Thanks. She was my Great-Great Aunt. I assume you were asked to take the pictures of Paul and Martha Ohms (My Great-Great Grandparents) as well? If so, do you know who asked you? And if so, can you pass along my contact info?
|JOHN SCHMIZ||Nellie Ohms|
My name is John Schmiz. I was wondering if you are related to Nellie Ohms? She was my Great Aunt (My Paternal Grandmothers Aunt - Barbara Ohms-Schmiz).
I have had a terrible time trying to track down family from that side for info for my family tree. If you have any info, it would be greatly appreciated.
|Pierre G. 'Pete' Normand, Jr.||Hugh Maxwell|
Your record for Find-A-Grave Memorial No. 10346193, is for Hugh Maxwell, in the Menard Cemetery, in Randolph County, Illinois. Your record states that he died Sep. 4, 1855. However, you also provide a photo of the gravestone. I'm not sure that I can read it, but it appears to say "Sept. 4, 1833 - Aged about 56 years."
According to the book titled "Lucien Bonaparte Maxwell: Napoleon of the Southwest," by Lawrence R. Murphy (Univ. of Oklahoma Press, 1983), it states that he died of cholera on "September 4, 1833." The endnote accompanying that info reads as follows:
"Sangamo Journal (Springfield), September 14, 1833. Morrison, "Lucien Bonaparte Maxwell," p. 3. Pregaldin, "Geneaology," incorrectly dates his death as September 4. The frequently reported story that Hugh died in a hunting accident is erroneous."
I think the date of Sep 14, 1833, above, is a reference to the date of the Sangamore Journal publication, and not to a death date. But, if the Sep 4 date is incorrect, then why did the author, Lawrence Murphy, report it that way in the text of his book?
In any case, regardless of what the exact date was, Hugh Maxwell died in 1833, not 1855. If he was "about 56," as his headstone indicates, then his birth year would have been 1776 or 1777.
Thank you for all your good work.
Pierre Goudeau "Pete" Normand, Jr.
Thanks for Eliza Douglas Chaplin. Have a great holiday. Barbara

Lucy, will you please transfer the memorial for my Grand Aunt, Dema W. WELLS RAUCH, #10652615, to me, Peggy Riggs KOPP, #46933045?
|Angie Knott||RE: Picture of Andreas Dauer|
Did you happen to get a picture of his wife, Catherine/Katherina Dauer? She should be close to him. Thanks again!
|Angie Knott||Picture of Andreas Dauer|
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for taking this picture. When I started my research for my 3 times great grandfather I was not even sure of his name. Then I guessed about when he died. I was afraid his stone was illegible or maybe even missing. But you had taken the picture way back in 2000. And thank God it has finally been posted. I am so excited and just want to praise you for helping on Findagrave. It feels good to help other people, and you have certainly done that. Thank you again. Angie Knott.
