Francis DeClue, Find A Grave Memorial# 130901690.
In his bio you show that the death certificate of his wife Sarah Ann Jackson DeClue, shows she died a widow in 1910.

Francis' brother Paul was also married to a Sarah Ann who died 1910. I have seen her death certificate on Ancestry and in Find A Grave.

I am hoping you can verify on the certificate you have seen for Sarah Ann DeClue if her husband is listed as Francis or Paul to ensure it is the correct Sarah Ann DeClue.

It can be confusing because both these Sarah Anns were raised in the same home. Sarah Ann Jackson DeClue's widowed father William married Sarah Ann Garret DeClue's widowed mother Mahala and the 2 girls then married brothers Francis and Paul DeClue (Duclos) and lived very near each other. Sarah and Francis were about 10+ years older than Sarah and Paul.

Thank you very much for creating the memorial for William Archie Mehearg. According to his death certificate, he died in Tyler Co., TX. I don't know how he ended up with a burial place in Missouri and being the only grave.

Clara Stogsdill
Hi Linda,

Thanks for the heads up. There was a 13 y/o Clara Stogsdill listed on the 1920 US census for Union Twp., Webster County, Missouri. Upon further investigation, I found a 1928 marriage record of Clara Stogsdill to William Shockley, in Webster County, Missouri. This seems to indicate that the Clara Stogdill buried in Buckingham Cemetery is not the same Clara Stogsdill listed in the 1920 census referenced above.

Thanks again.

Thys Barentsen Swaim
Hello Linda, I am a descendant of Thys Barentsen Swaim Find A Grave Memorial# 123537715.....and have been working on this line for quite a few days.

I'm wondering where to find the information on his marriages, is there a document somewhere?

Your memorial for him states that he married

1st married Peterke Jans of Holland in 1642

2nd married Scytie Cornelise

I'm so curious as to where you found this information.

Thank you so much for all that you do.

Respectfully yours,
Marsha Cramer Baker
