Many of the memorials which I have added are based on one of the following sources:

Marklesburg Union Cemetery

Memorial# 104938174, James T. Wilson, Sr.
Thank you for the refreshment lessons on Geography and History. I know better. A boatload of my ancestors are Scots-Irish. Northern Ireland and the Scots?????? It never even dawned on me to look for Northern Ireland. Good grief.

Mary McKown Haffley
Hi Bob - I've spent the day checking all the obits, etc in various newspapers (I've added Jacob HafflEy's to his Find A Grave with his correct death year of Sep 6 1909).

The 2 children by Catharine Ann Baker's first marriage to an unknown McKown were Mary (Haffley) and John (who died at some point before 1898 when his mother died and his half-brother Newt Akers died (Mary is listed in both obituaries, as a half-sister of Newt's). The McKown father remains elusive. He died sometime in the 1840s but that is all I know of him.

Hopefully you can verify whatever information you have and put Mary's maiden surname on her Find A Grave.

Thanks for your input (btw, I did read your post but it was not specific, saying that the information I sent was not the same that you had).

Are you related?

Mary McGowan (Mckown) Haffley
No problem if you don't want to place the accurate information. I have her obituary and her mother is my ancestor. I've placed the information on her Find A Grave site.

RE: Connecting Ralph Eyer with his parents
OK, thank you Bob! I have not done that before and am just now getting started in actively working in the site; have been viewing for awhile now. I'll figure that out and make some connections. Thank you.

Connecting Ralph Eyer with his parents
Hi Bob, I added a photo of Ralph Eyer's grave at Kennekuck Cemetery (Atchison County, Kansas). He is buried right next to his parents and infant brother who have a post, ( and, so it would be good to connect them.

Also, his sister Edna is here:

And sister Anna (Annie) is here:

I will have some more sibling links coming. Ralph was my great-grandma's brother. I would like to help get all their posts on here connected.

Thank you.

Joseph Cole -Mt.Vernon
Hello Joe , after many years and several generations "we" have found Joseph's burial place thanks to YOU. If you ever are back out there and could snap a picture I believe we could see our selves clear to providing some gas and a six pack or two. Thank you so much for what you have already done, Jeff.
