Peter Mills Sr.
Have you been able to find out more information on Peter Mills Sr. I am a descendent of his, I am working on a family tree. I am trying to make it as correct as possible. I know after a certain you have to guess when the birthday is and date of death too because records aren't always fully intact. I also thought it was nice that you included that he is Dutch.

RE: Wesleyan Cemetery
Talked to a friend and she ask for the information and sent it to her contact at Find A Grave. Within two days the title page was changed (corrected). Now, just get people to read the title page! This would help. I did not want the memorials transferred to me, just to let people know that the cemetery no longer exists, and they would stop requesting photos. Andrew

Hi, thanks for the note. No, if you click on the photo it will zoom in to full resolution. Click on it twice and you can see the middle initial is an F. This is one reason I always post maximum resolution photos. I never understood why people went to the trouble to post photos that were so low res that you couldn't read them. Have a great day.

Wesleyan Cemetery
Dick & Karen
A picture of the entrance of the cemetery (Wesleyan Cemetery) would not be possible as the cemetery no longer exists. What I have learned is that when everything was removed from the cemetery, the land was graded and buildings were erected on the site, been trying to have Find-A-Grave transfer Wesleyan transferred to me so I could change the bio page or have them correct it, as it is not correct. It states that all burials (anywhere from 2,000 to 20,000 burials were removed to Memorial Park). But only about 800 were moved to Memorial Park; all military burials were moved to Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, some were claimed by family, the rest. . .? Who Knows?

RE: Capt. Mial Pierce
Those are 2 seperate sites that were never together. RHC# 47 Esek Pierce Yard and RHC #48 Case Family Lot AKA Case, Kelton and Lawton Lot.
I'll look into your request, not sure we have those markers.
peace, Cheryl

On Catharine's page they are listed as children, and on Powel Jr's they are listed as siblings. Is that the source of the confusion? I do not see any children listed for Powel and Sarah. Please let me know if I've misunderstood your inquiry. Thank you!

Grace Gard
Hi Karen,

I have transferred Grace over to you. There are about 10 or 11 other Gards buried there, let me know if you want any or all of them transferred to you. Have a nice evening!

Hi Karen,
I read with great interest what you wrote for John Murray. My grandmother was Clarissa May Linn. What you wrote about her grandparents raising her after her mother died isn't quite true. She was living with her grandparents by the age of 4. I don't know the reason why; but I do know that Lola Cheesman told me she was envied by her siblings because she had never had to work as hard as they had and had gotten so much schooling. I do have several pictures of her with her cousins.
