Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy since about 1975, and enjoy visiting cemeteries wherever I may be visiting.
I always try and take photos of headstones that may or may not pertain to my families. I am originally from Edon, Williams Co., Ohio and have lived in Southern Utah since 1974. I will gladly transfer any memorials as long as they are not part of my family. Some of the family names I am searching are: Chrisman, Knecht, Gillis, Glover, Kinnison, Beanblossom, Duke, Liggett, McCamis, Finley, Jeurink and Hatch.

RE: John Robinson
There are too many with that name. I suggest you call New Tacoma. Or leave it as is, and the photo volunteers now working in that cemetery will eventually catch it.

RE: Mary Katherine Knisely Pearson
Guess what I just found on Mary Pearson died in 1886 NOT 1884. She died of consumption (which could be any number of diseases in the modern lexicon but normally turns out to be tuberculosis. Her death date in the Hicksville News (Ohio) says Mary Pearson, wife of Albert Pearson left THREE young children behind. I only have TWO in my tree, Celia and Della. Wonder what happened to the other one?

Sooo, the Mary C Pearson with birth date of 1859 and death date of 1886 is very very likely Mary Katherine (Catherine) Knisely Pearson. It's likely enough that I'll make the change to my Ancestry tree for her and go looking for the third child. If you give me your direct email address, I can send you an invitation to my family tree on Ancestry and a pdf file of Mary Pearson's death announcement from the paper. And anything else I find on the family if you like.

RE: Mary Katherine Knisely Pearson
I'll see what I can find for hints as to her burial place. Scipio is a likely place, though. There's a living relative in Kansas that may have some idea of where she is buried. However, her memory is sometimes not completely reliable. I've found documentation disproving a few things she told us.

Eliza Ann Bose Photo
Hi there Connie,

I had some time to tromp around the old Bolivar Cemetery today and was able to secure a few gravestone pictures of George Himes and Eliza Ann Bose... Eliza is not buried directly beside George as some sources indicate... So the photos of the gravestone that is completely weathered that I thought could be hers, is not... (That stone is now broken off the base and broken in half...) Fortunately Eliza's stone was/is in much better shape...

RE: Alexander Hawley
You're welcome. Thanks for posting it. I try to center around 1880-1910 because of the missing census for that time. No other sources for some of information. Everyone comes across something different. Thanks for your work as well.

Eliza Ann Himes Bose
Hello Connie,

I declined two of the three edits that you suggested for Eliza Ann, place of birthdeath and first name... I did link her up to Catherine M. Himes as her mother as most evidence suggest that George and Catherine are her parents... On both the 1850 and 1860 census Eliza (in the household of Samuel Bose) gave Ohio as her place of birth and not Pennsylvania... George and Catherine were married in Tuscarawas Co., Ohio in 1814... In 1820, 1830, 1840 and 1850 George was enumerated in Lawrence Township, Tuscarawas... If indeed Eliza is their daughter she was most likely born in Lawrence Township... There is no evidence what so ever that she lived in Defiance County and she most likely died is Franklin Township, Tuscarawas where her and Samuel lived...

While I am not doubting that her first name may have been Elizabeth not a single document that I have for her gives her name as such and they all list her as Eliza... In 1850 George and Catherine had a female aged 15 living with them named Elizabeth and this is not "Eliza"... So Eliza will stay...

The photo that you posted for Eliza Ann Himes Bose to her memorial is a photo that I took... (Thank You!!!) It is not of Eliza Ann... It is Samuel Bose and his first wife Elizabeth Sarah Young Bose... If you would be so kind as delete my photo that you posted from her memorial... I am fairly certain that I have a photo of Eliza Ann Bose's gravestone but I didn't post it as it is completely weathered and no longer legible at all, so I'm not %100 sure at this time... If I conclude that it is of her or obtain one that is, I will post it to her memorial so you can added it your database...

RE: Laura Blanche Gibbs Allbee
I can't believe I did that.. I have been uploading so many photos I missed posting her personal photo. It is posted now. I had it on my memory stick.. just missed getting it posted.
