My question is on your request for photos of Havill in the Chloride Cemetery. I am president of the Sierra County Genealogical Society and we have published books, walked the cemeteries in this county and did not find the names you requested. We are making a field trip this Friday to the cemetery to find anyone who was buried since we last were there in 1994. It is an hour away from our home. We will update the graves at that time. NO RECORDS have ever been kept for this cemetery, so I must ask you by what source do you think these folks are buried here? There is one Havil but none others that we are aware. No plot map, no recordings of burials ever done to this day. I will let you know the results of our survey

RE: Robert Amis Stevenson

Since you are working on this tree, I have decided to turn the memorial for Robert over to you. You can make the corrections and additions.

RE: Olmsteads
Thank you for your help, I am fairly certain Edward Omstead died in Barber County between 1910 - 1915.

RE: Thomas Mays
Hi Elaine. I posted the page for Ruth Mays. It's the first one I've done.. please take a look and make sure I did it correctly.

Thank you for your work on Find A Grave. I use it all the time and have found it one of my best sources for my family research.

RE: Earnest Olmstead
Thank you for the transfer. Do you know if there are any additional Olmsteads buried in Highland Cemetery? I am searching for Ernest's father, Edward F. Olmstead who was born 1849 and died between 1910 and 1915 in Barber County Kansas. I know he was living in Medicine Lodge as of 1910. Thank you.

I have photo of Howard Givens III the day he was born
Hello there,

While going through my deceased mother's memorabilia, I came across a newspaper article showing my mother (a student maternity nurse at the time) holding "Baby Givens" and the title of the article is "1933 Model Baby." I have a digital copy of the photo from the newspaper. It was published in the Philadelphia newspaper as a significant story because he was the first baby born in Philadelphia on January 1, 1933. I would love to share it, but the rules here say that I can only share photos to which I have a copyright. Since this was a newspaper article, I don't know if that still applies. Anyway, I would like to get it to you somehow. My name is Jo Ann Hudson, I am a member on this site. Please contact me via e-mail if you would like the photo. It is very charming indeed, and sentimental to both of us, I am sure. My e-mail is

Ruth Mays
Hi Elaine. I see you created the memorial page for Thomas Mays. His wife, Ruth Wells Mays, was my mother's cousin. I have been unable to find her here on the find a grave site. I called Highland Cemetery and they assured me that she is buried next to Tom. Am I missing something?
