I have been working on my family's genealogy since the 1980s. My research focuses on the Kelley, Renshaw & Latimer families in Texas and the Girling, Quin, Kaigler, Massey, Cansler, Bobo & Herrington families in Mississippi.|

|LOU member #47653322||James Galt in Riverside|
Dawn - You sent me parental links for James Galt in Riverside. How do you know that is the correct James. There is no birth year listed for him. I am a bit careful with the Galt family. There is a plethora of them in this particular cemetery and I just want to be sure.
|Janet K||Thomas Crawford|
Thank you so much for the name of the cemetery that Thomas is buried in! I have added it to his memorial. The obituary is WONDERFUL too!
Are you related? I am not, and would be happy to transfer his care to someone who is...
Thank you again!

Thank you so much!! I have seen so much wrong information about these sisters. It is good to be able to get some of it changed. Thank you for all the work you do. Findagrave.com is a great website and it is people like you that has made it great.

Hello Dawn--I have added three photos for Anton.
One of them shows four family headstones, but maybe you will want to sort the photos, if you want to. I have submitted an edit for the plot location. Very nice memorial page, you have done lots of good work. Peggy

|Anna Jaech||Alfred Quinton Kennett|
This memorial is a delight! The large Kennett family practically owned the Mississippi River from Galena, IL to New Orleans. They were fascinating. Gen. Grant thought they supplied more lead shot pellets to the CSA than any other supplier. They made this shot in the lead belt of Missouri; in the city of Potosi (one of the names of the steamboat lines in the obit you supplied.) They built their own RR from Potosi to St. Louis.
They had unlimited slave labor. Galena was a station on the Underground Railway. The Kennetts paid folks to collect slaves from the Underground. They were taken to the lead mines and shot towers.
I've collected many, many stories and knew about Quinton. It was rather thrilling to read about a Kennett who had many friends and was generally admired.
I just wanted you to know I appreciate your dedication to those we summon back to life.
Frances Carruth Quin - John Carruth'a will mentions his four daughters, Fanny Quin,Elizabeth Henderson, Jane Allison, and Polly Graham...also his living sons, George and John plus two deceased sons Walter and Adam. Don't know if that is info you might have an interest. My husband's mother was a Carruth and have been trying to follow her genealogy (not easy as every Carruth had 10-12 kids all nameed John, George, Adam, Robert....).
Duncan and I are 2nd cousins. Cecil Sr and my grandfather, Charles Sr were brothers. We've never met and I do not have a memory of Cecil, just his brother James (Jim). Jim lived with Charles and Vada. Amy keeps the Find A Grave info for Cecil and one aunt, Georgia. She is Cecil's great-grandaughter, I think.
|Sue Pittman McPeak||Marley Family|

|Sharon Saunders Crockett||RE: Prell family of Kansas|
I am not related to the Prell family, but was at a flea market this weekend and came across a picture of the Prell family. I bought the picture because I can't stand the thought of a family photo not being with the family! It is a wonderful (good size) photo with 3 boys, a man and woman. I "think" it is your sister in laws family. The back of the photo has some writing on it, the reason I bought it. It says, Mr & Mrs Prell, it lists 1 of the boys as Henry Prell and the other boy is listed as Louis Prell, no name on the other boy. Under the name for Mr. & Mrs. Prell it says, "neighbors in Bremen, Kansas to Fred & Alma Harder & Children". Under Henry's name it says, "died young, killed by", nothing more is written. I think this is Friedrich, Sophia & sons, Friedrich, Henry & Louis. In the 1900 census they were neighbors with Fred & Alma Harder. If you are interested, I will be more than glad to send it to you.
