RE: dups
Just wanted you to know that none of the misspelled names are your fault and generations to come will appreciate this formidable bulk of work that you have done!

RE: duplicates
I will try to finish the list yet this week and then make transfers to you so your can maintain your numbers. I have no interest in managing all of these so don't mind making quite a few transfers to you.

Leave for Gulf Shores, Alabama on Wed of this coming week (17th) - can't wait! Friends state most days it has been in the 70's there. We are again in the deep freeze so will welcome something warm.

RE: duplicates
I would be happy to transfer some to you so you can maintain your numbers. I am making one last pass through all the records, culling out the duplicates and would guess that there are going to be quite a few more due to misspellings. I have completed the A's, B's and C's and will continue to go through all of them until the listings are as clean as we can get them. After this final pass through the listings, this project will be DONE!

RE: William G. Craigie Find A Grave Memorial # 120588680
Thanks. I'll try that. Apparently, there was also a Marshal Blankenship who died in 1893. Maybe he is the father of these 2 brothers. It certainly is convoluted! Maybe the Arizona Archives can figure it out!

Thanks again,

RE: William G. Craigie Find A Grave Memorial # 120588680
Thanks for your quick response. Do you have any idea where to find more information about the Blankenship brothers? For quite awhile I had assumed that Carrie was married to the marshal, and it was quite confusing. I finally figured out the marshal wasn't her husband. Is there some sort of archives, or something, about members of the law enforcement community in the Phoenix area?

By the way, I visited Mesa, Arizona for a whole month when I was 11. A friend had moved there with her family. They lived on a ranch. I remember having a lot of fun that included a visit to Disneyland. I imagine Mesa has changed quite a lot since the late 50s!

William G. Craigie Find A Grave Memorial # 120588680
I have been trying to learn whatever I can about William G. Craigie who is buried at Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery. I do know a little about him. He was born in Canada in about 1860. His father was Capt. D.E. Craigie who was in the US Army. I don't know his mother's name, but both of William's parents were born in Canada. William was listed in the 1880 census for Camp Verdi, Yavapai, Arizona. He was listed as a laborer, but had been unemployed for 3 months due to illness - fever & ague. It appears he worked for a farmer. He was 20 years old and single. Sometime after the 1880 census, and before he died, he married a 2nd great aunt of mine. Her name was Caroline (Carrie) Edloff. The Arizona Republican of August 27, 1895, mentions William's widow was with him when he died the day before. In the September 19, 1895 Arizona Republican, there is mention of a small real estate transaction saying that John R. Loosley sold a cemetery plot to W.G. and Carrie E. Craigie. The only other record I have for him is the 1895 Phoenix City Directory where he is listed as an electrician and lives at 239 N. Second. Carrie is listed as a dressmaker. Carrie went on to marry James Blankenship on November 9, 1895. There was a sheriff or Marshal James Blankenship in Phoenix, sometimes called Billy or J.W., but that does not seem to be who she married. This Blankenship was married to Maud Wilson. I found a brief mention of these 2 men in a file that indicates they were brothers - Billy and Jim. Jim (Carrie's husband) may have died before June 1900 because Carrie was living in Globe, Gila, Arizona (1900 census, June 4), and on June 19, she married again to John Kinvig. I am curious about the Blankenships, as well as William G. Craigie. Do you have any further information?

RE: Mary Callicoat
Sorry I wasn't thinking that someone else could have added info to yours. It would be nice if Find a Grave had tool like ancestry to where you could merge duplicates. Bad part is each memorial has slightly different info w/ 1 having image of headstone & info from the book the Callicott Connections Vol II. Person w/ other memorial could have added these to yours simply by uploading image & adding bio rather than method they took making things a little confusing. What is more confusing is there is actually 2 different Mary Null married into the Callicoat family. 1st married Cyrus Bailey Callicoat II. 2nd married John Alexander Callicoat.

RE: Daniel L. Davis
Thank you so much for the info about Lillie Davis. I've been told all my life that we have Native American blood but never knew who the Native American was. My family tree is the Foster side of the family. James Paul Foster and Elizabeth Corbett. Noah Foster is my g-grandfather and James of course would be my gg-grandfather. I've also been told they came to Ok on the Trail of Tears so I just always guessed Eliza or someone was Native American.

Do you know what Native American tribe that Nancy Ann was from?

I do appreciate all of your help.
