I have been doing genealogy since 1992 and love it.

RE: Philip Ehrhart
Hi Claire,

I lost your email address, so I couldn't email you right away when I found it. I have been doing a lot of work in the cemetery, trying to get everything documented because I am putting together a little comb bound book of the cemetery for the genealogical society and now a few church members want to buy one.

Anyway, I was there yesterday and looking for some graves I don't have pictures of and I was trying to decipher some of the ones I could't read before. The light must have been just right and I got a few that i couldn't get before. Philip was one of them. That is why the picture is at an odd angle and shows just the inscription. I wasn't sure tip I got it home and blew the pic up.

I am going back today so I will take a better picture of the monument. It is in pretty good shape considering its age. I will see what I can find out about a wife I think I have it somewhere because i read that he was not Catholic and his wife converted him. Then he gave th land for the Catholic church. I am going to put some flowers on the grave too, just because I am so happy to have found it - he was very important to the church history!

Send me your email - I will keep in touch!

RE: Elmer Gore
You are welcome. Was that the right one? On the headstone it looked like Core vs Gore but the dates matched.

I bel that some of the stone pictures you are requesting may not be able to be fulfilled. Some of the Hoppes names are not on the Madison Co Cem Commission list either, that most likely means there was no stone, or it was unreadable. I do not know for sure how they compiled the list whether they did it from cemetery records at the library or they actually had records from the cem or what. Mabel Marie (Hoppes) Kirkwood is bur there and she is not on the list either. I just found a death cert for her. Her parents were Andrew Jackson Hoppes & Laura Surber.

RE: WiLLIAM Rainbolt
I have tried rotating it all 4 ways and it stills comes up the same way. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I have declined the requests to link to their father William. I can see that they are currently linked to a dupe for him. I have submitted they two versions for merging which will take care of both issues. Thanks.

It's fine now. The death date on the death certificate is the same as what you show so thanks.

Hi Claire,

I sent you his death dates via the edit tab. I've seen a lot of volunteers wanting proof of someone's birth/death info so I find it easier just to send the death certificate number. You don't have to do anything with it. It's just to let you know there is a death certificate for him.

Maria Craddock, #65656857
Hi Claire,

I was creating a memorial for Maria's son Ulmer and there is a conflict with their birth years. I couldn't find her birth certificate on Ancestry but I did find her on the 1900 census with her brother J W Hightower and and her mother Laura and it shows Maria (Mariah) was born in July, 1876 not 1893. Maria's 3 sons are Ulmer, born 1899, Robert, born 1903, and Theodore, born 1908. I've sent edits to you to connect Robert and Theodore to Maria. If you agree that her birth year should be changed to 1876 let me know and I'll send it to you through the edit tab.
