Lola Belle Hayden
I see yu posted to Find A Grave, Lola Belle Hayden, memorial #36961439, Seneca City Cemetery. You show that her parents are Albert S. Hayden & Olive Alvina Thornberry Hayden.

My husband also descends from Thornton & Martha Ann, (from Bradford Porter, brother to William Thornberry (born 1841, Logan Co., Ky., and his first wife, Sarah Jane. William H was the father of Alva -- and was wondering where you got her full name -- hopefully a family Bible.

Are you related to the family and if so, can you give me details as to when Olive Alvina's parents
are buried?

If you want to email me that is great --

Thank you,
Joyce Luttrell

RE: Dorothy Massell Shoemaker Strebeck
Thanks for your tip on removing Dorothy Massell Shoemaker Strebeck from my grandmothers Find a Grave post.

Might I also suggest that you use her first name (Adeline); I have never found a record that her first name was Adelaide. I am curious as to how you came on this name.

Thanks for your time in making this post on Find a Grave.

I have no web link but below is what I recorded a few years a go on Simon Armstrong.

Best regards,

Centralia Journal
April 8, 1904


Simon Armstrong, a well known and highly respected citizen of Centralia, died at his home a few miles west of the city, on Wednesday the 30th day of March 1904.

Mr. Armstrong was born in Dumfrees-Shire, Scotland on the 4th day of May 1831. His age was 72 years 10 months and 26 days.

Mr. Armstrong came to America in the fall of 1826; he spent one year in Illinois and about three years in Johnson and Leavenworth counties Kansas as a tiller of the soil. Early in the spring of 1860 Mr. Armstrong came to Nemaha County and located in the Vermillion valley. Here the three brothers Robert, David and Simon engaged in the stock business. They raised, pastured and fed many cattle and prospered. Their partnership continued until the summer of 1887 when it was dissolved.

Simon continued alone in the stock business and was very successful. His lands stretched out over the beautiful valley and his flocks and herds pastured on many hills, or fed in the groves near his dwelling place, by the streams of water. Mr. Armstrong was married to Miss Emma Vautravers on the 25th day of November 1876. To them were born four sons and four daughters, all of whom survive him and were present when he died.

Mr. Armstrong was one of the first directors of the First National Bank of Centralia holding this position until the death. He was also for a number of years a member of the board of education in his district which office he held continuously for many years. Honest in all his dealings, his word was as good as his note. The hungry were fed at his table. The sick and those in want always found in him a friend. He was a good man and every one speaks kindly of him. He had many friends.

His last sickness was long and severe continuing five weeks. During all that time his faithful wife scarcely left his bedside long enough to rest and refresh herself. With loving heart and tender hands she waited on him, administering to his every want with the greatest of care. The sons and daughters were there ever ready to do what they could to ease the sufferings of a dying father.

Robert Armstrong, his only surviving brother as best he could. All that medical skill and science could do for him was done. The pleading voice of prayer was heard by the sick mans beside. But all, all could not save his life; we could only ease his pathway to the grave. Funeral services were held in the Congregational church on Friday April 1st. the funeral sermon was preached by P. K. Shoemaker. The pall bearers were L. R. Jackson, E. L. Horth, J. L. Skinner, Henry Anthony, S. C. Smith and Geo. T. Jessee. Interment in the Centralia cemetery.

“Tis the last pang, he calmly said,
To me, O death, thous hast no dread;
Savior I come!
Spread out thine arm on yonder shore—
I see! Ye waters bear me o’er—
There is my home

I have updated their pages in the Mount Hope Cemetery in Topeka. As a KU fan, you might be interested in this line from Thelma's obit:
"Memorial contributions may be made to the Lady Longhorn basketball team, University of Texas."

I spoke to the Cemetery Office, they have no record of her buried in Mt Calvery. I did find her death certificate indicating she is buried in Mt Calvery. I will keep looking.
