Stith Bonner Sale, d. 1942
I am wondering where you found the place of death in Colorado. S.B.'s brother John A. Sale died 17 Oct 1942 in Ordway, Colorado, but I haven't been able to find S. B. there. Or anywhere else, for that matter. I would certainly appreciate your help - thank you! Maggi A

Cornelius Snyder
I am looking for a Cornelius Henry Snyder,Born in the 1800's, that is from Aurora, Ill. He was married to Arline (Wagner)Snyder and having 3 children. I believe this Cornelius #2569537 might be my great great great grand father. My great great grand mother was born in 1861 the same yr. you have him down to have been in the infantry. Do you happen to know if these 2 are the same person. I would really appreciate it if you could find out for me then get back with me.
Thank you,
Cindy McDaniel

RE: Rev. Adam Hodam and Family
Thank you Mr. Kasper. A nice lady named Diane Goodboe contacted me in Dec. 2010 about some of my Boggs family graves that I had put on Find A Grave....she sent me one of "The Journal Of James H. Hodam" and also sent one for our Gallia County Historical and Genealogical Society.
