Mary Mason Wildrick memorial
Thank you so much for adding the photo to my families memorial. Since I will probably never see it it person, it means so much.

RE: Moores
Hi Joyce!
Glad to hear back from you! I think I mentioned that I live in Hamburg. I am waiting for some warmer weather and then I plan on heading down. I would LOVE for you to join Amy & I.

I need to coordinate with Amy Princess (my girlfriend from Grand Island) - she is related to the Conners - so would that make you guys related somehow? hmmmmmmm.

Amy has a wand scanner (in case we need it at Town Hall) and a laptop with a hotspot so that we can access our tree while at the cemetery.

I babysit for my nephew on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so Wednesday and Friday are best for me. What about you? I need to be home to get my youngest off the bus (about 2:50). Anytime those days will be good until the kids are out of school at the end of June, then my time is pretty limited.

Let me know and we'll try to get something scheduled. Ron Post, the cemetery caretaker that I am working with, may want to be there, too.

Hi Joyce
It's coming altogether now. I sent an update to you on Edward & Sarah Moore, including Sarah's maiden name which was Conner. Her parents are buried in Protection - same lot as the Moores - that makes sense now!

See if you can check out my tree for some interesting info. Sarah Conner Moore was married prior to her marriage to Edward. She was married to Jacob Savage - they had several children that died quite young - all buried in Humphrey Cemetery. Sarah & Jacob divorced (unusual for back then, right?) and she remarried Ed Moore. She left behind 2 children, under the ages of 5, they are with Jacob - also VERY unusual. The son survived - John Wesley Savage and moved out west, if I remember right. The daughter, Ida, I can't locate beyond the census where she is living with her dad.

Sarah's first son by her second marriage was born in Iowa. I can't find the family in 1870 in Iowa or in NY (maybe you can!), but by 1880, they are back in Holland. Looks like she divorced Jacob, married Ed Moore, got pregnant (maybe not necessarily in that order?) and high-tailed it out of town!

I do have conflicting records for the number of children she says she had - 1900 says she had 6 and 3 are living, 1910 says she had 4 and 2 are living.

Would love to hear what you think of all this (:

RE: Prtection Cemetery Moore (Edward and Sarah)
Hi Joyce
Do you have a copy of the record that "Mrs Wagoner of Arcade" made in the late 1920's or early 1930's? I believe this reading holds many clues to Protection's burials. She "walked" the cemetery, recording every grave she saw, many of those markers are gone today.
I have been using this in conjunction with the original records that I am working from. It comes into play with the Moores because, as you know, Edward and Sarah had a son named William who died when he was one.
The only ACTUAL record we have of William's existance, is the fact that Mrs Wagner recorded a grave marker as she walked the cemetery (that is how Lisa-another f.a.g member and the one who transferred the memorials to you-knew to create a memorial for William)
I would have expected William to be buried with Edward & Sarah (and he may very well be there), but, for now, Mrs Wagner's reading does not seem to indicate that. William is listed in the reading with more than 100 other memorials between him and his parents.
I do not believe there was an "children's section" in Protection (as you see in many cemeteries), so the question becomes, why is he not with his parents, or is he?
What i have realized that we need to take into consideration is HOW Mrs Wagner walked. She would not have known where a plot (which was 10 graves) began and where it ended. She probably walked, following the rows of graves she saw. Of course, husband and wife were often on the same stone, even though they were in separate "rows" (let's say graves 1 & 2), so she would have written them down one after the other, as she read them from the stone, and how your Moores are listed in her reading. However, a grave that was in the same plot, but not on the same stone (let's say grave 10), might not have been written down until she came to it several "rows" later - does that make sense?
I really think we might be able to "recreate" how Mrs Wagner walked that day, and my intention is to try and do that, maybe sometime this week if the weather holds.
Let me give you what the original records state:
Moore A/Lot 12 Grave 1/Pd 5-12-1967
Moore A/Lot 12 Grave 2/Pd 5-12-1967
Moore A/Lot 12 Grave 4/Pd 5-12-1967
Moore Ed/Lot 12 Grave 3/Pd 5-12-1967/Stone-no date
Moore Sarah/Lot 12 Grave 5/Pd 5-12-1967/Died 1911

Graves 6-10 are part of the Conner family. "A Moore" is probably the Lot owner. I am guessing it is Arthur Moore, Sarah & Edward's surviving son. He purchased another plot of 10 graves in the new section-Lot 72.

In the reading by Mrs Wagner, William is listed between Aaron & Mariah Moulton who, we know from the original records are buried in Lot 3 Graves 6 & 7 and Amasa Fay & her sister Martha Porter who, from the original records are in Lot 4 Grave 6 & 7.

So, to finally "answer" your question, I have no idea who, if anyone, is buried in Grave 3. In fact, it's more likely that no one is buried there because there is no name listed on Grave 3, only the plot owner, A Moore.

Sorry I cannot tell you more, I'll let you know if our trip to Protection gives us any more answers!
