|Philip Hudson||Samuel Smithwick Mapes, III Find A Grave Memorial# 114541638|
I see you manage several Mapes memorials. Do you have a special interest in this family? I am interested in all the people who lived on the Simmons Survey in Live Oak County, Texas. The Simmons Survey is on the west side of Live Oak County and includes Simmons, White Creek and Mountain View. Samuel Smithwick Mapes, III Find A Grave Memorial# 114541638, lived in The White Creek Community of the Simmons Survey. The Mapes School was named for him. There was a Mapes home place there. My dad and I remodeled it for tenants in 1953. I am pretty sure Mr Mapes died in Simmons. I think he was buried in Oakville, Texas, where he was born and where his wife is buried. You have his memorial in have no known cemetery for him in your memorial. The only Mapes I have personally known was Myralee Jewel (Mapes) Freasier Pullin who you include in Sam Mapes III's biography. You will note she was married twice. I knew the Pullin and Freasier family and know some of them that are still alive.
Eugene Allen Mapes [Find A Grave Memorial# 98341694] may have been the first baby born on the Simmons Survey. The Simmons Survey was made from the Simmons Ranch and was sold as farms in 1907.
I will attach Myralee's memorial to the memorials of Sam Mapes III and his wife Martha O Faidley Mapes [Find A Grave Memorial# 84166214].
I know the people who are active in Findagrave work for Live Oak County. I specialize in those who have lived on the Simmons Survey at some time in their lives. Perhaps we can find Sam Mapes III's gravesite for you.
Please e-mail me at email@example.com.
Your fellow Findagraver,

I have much to add on this family yet. I went through and uploaded the photos and basic information and I've been gradually adding the personal history of each person known buried in South Attica as it was written in my book. I have been trying to locate the lady who has photos of Emily Lewis Fishell. Spoke to her once years ago and she never got back to me. Her email is inactive.
I'm not related. Just working on the memorials in the Italian Cemetery. Email me about any memorials I have. I am interested in transferring your family to you. Just let me know if you want any of them.
I look forward to hearing from you.

How did you see this memorial so fast? Where did you find the info? You amaze me! Cheri
Thanks so much, Jennifer. I'm so happy to have the family together. Your work on here is really appreciated.

Thank you for trying to get a photo of her marker. I appreciate your time and effort.
|Sherry Lotter||Hathaway/Taylor Families|
I just want to thank you for all the information on the Hathaway/Taylor families. I have been trying to do the Arlo Taylor / Beulah (Johnson) Taylor families and it has been difficult trying to find anything.
Arlo & Beulah Taylor and daughter Marcia were very close friends of my husbands in his teens. They did not seem to have much family or info out there. You have been a Godsend.
|J Williams||Louisa Carpenter Lounsbury|
I am searching for some information on Louisa Carpenter Lounsbury who married Nehemiah Lounsbury Jr. Nehemiah was the son of Hester (Maiden Name Unknown) and Nehemiah Lounsbury Sr. I noticed that you had recorded their places of burial in Steuben County, Indiana. I think Louisa was buried in the Flint Hill Cemetery somewhere in Steuben though she died in neighoring LaGrange County, Indiana as the newspaper story below describes. Would you be willing to look up her burial spot and let me know who her mother and daughter ... referenced in the article as being near her place of rest ... were or what is says one their markers? I would be very appreciative.

LaGrange County, Indiana ~ Obituaries
Lounsbury, Louisa (wife of Nehemiah) - The funeral services of Mrs. Louisa Lounsbury were held at the residence on Monday afternoon from the residence at 3 p.m. It was conducted by Rev. L. J. Naftzger. The house was packed with sympathizing friends and many were unable to gain attendance. She is spoken of by her neighbors in the very kindest manner as an intelligent, kindhearted and excellent woman. She was not violent of temper but gentle and kind, yet firm. She encouraged her daughter to live with her husband, telling her he would certainly cease his unkind treatment until after the daughters 3rd return home when she became convinced her task of conciliation was futile and she then sustained her daughter in her refusal to live longer with him. Whatever the sons and daughters may have had to do with the family trouble, we know not, but it is pretty certain neither the slain mother nor the bereaved father were of the disposition to excite or keep it up. The deceased was about 50 years old and in good health. Her head was untinged with gray and she was apparently in good physical condition for many more years of life. She was a believer in the general tenets of Christianity and for the last few years of her life was particularly devoted to the so-called Christian Science theory of healing. Her remains were taken to Flint, Steuben Co., Indiana on Tuesday for burial beside those of her mother and a child. - "LaGrange Standard," LaGrange, Indiana, March 18, 1890
*On June 11, 1895 in LaGrange Co., Indiana, her husband Nehemiah Lounsbury remarried Lena A. Krum and they were both still alive in the 1900 US census in Bloomfield, Lagrange, Indiana. He was born in Jan. 1834 in New York. According to the 1880 US Census in LaGrange, LaGrange CO., Indiana she was born abt. 1840 in New York and they had 3 children living with them, Charles age 21 and Ella & Nellie Lounsbury both age 15 years with all 3 children being born in Indiana. They lived close to the Ruick family. In the 1850 US census in Jackson twp., Steuben Co., Indiana, Nehamiah ia 15 years of age and living with the Alcott family and a possible brother George and Sarah Lounsbury ages 13 & 11 two farms away living with another family.. Steuben Co., Indiana Cemetery book records her as being buried in Sec. A, Lot 3. and being born on July 29, 1838 *This obituary follows a lengthy article on her murder by son-in-law, Frank Mingus, husband of her daughter Ella B. Lounsbury Mingus. I will add a few details but the complete article can be found on microfilm at the LaGrange Co., Library. "Assasin Breaks Into House and Murders a Helpless Woman, Stabbing her in the Throat and Head with the Fury of a Demon." She was murdered in her home by a pockert knife and the coroners verdict was that she came to death by violence.
