Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching family for over 4 years and a new member of Find A Grave. Family line includes; Carpenter, Fairbank(s), Foss, Lane, Nelson, Oothoudt, and Wise. Faribault County of Minnesota is the main area of residence. With the help of newly found "cousins" Marla, Debi, Gail, Donna, Linda, and Elaine, I have been able to add much more information to my family tree and genealogy information.

Clara Maude Bailey Mem # 50450804
Jill - I am related to all 4 Bailey's listed in the Marion Cemetery (Olmsted Co, MN).

Clara M Bailey is the child of Mortimer Atherton Bailey and his wife Judith Almeda (Foot) Bailey. They are my great grandparents, who married in Rochester and lived in Marion when their first two children were born. Clara would have been their 2nd daughter - born 13 December 1873 and died 23 July 1874. The family moved to South Dakota.

Fred & Lizzie are brother to Mortimer (above).
Fred and Mortimer were sons of William F Bailey) who moved to Minnesota after the death of his wife, Sally, in Marion, Waushara County, WI. The family are seen in records in Marion, Olmsted Co., MN by 1865.

Fanny is the daughter of William Bailey and his second wife Addie who died at age 16.

I have NOT however, found any documents (or a grave) for him. His name is William F Bailey b. bet 1815-1818 in New York and died after 1880 and probably before 1885. Sp -- if you run into a lost William F Bailey in your cemetery work, pls remember that his great great granddaughter is still looking for him. (Won't you come home Bill Bailey????)

Thanks so much for your work!!!

Myrtle Grace Freer
Memorial # 74916116 - wanted to let you know that this Myrtle Grace is actually Myrtle Grace Spencer (the first wife of Arthur William Freer). After he married his 2nd wife, Grace Peck they did name one of their daughters Myrtle Grace Freer but her birth and death dates are 1909-1995). Arthur's 1st wife Myrtle Grace Spencer is the daughter of Alson Levi Spencer and Rosina Almira Russell. I'm letting you know so you can edit/fix your findagrave info and links. Let me know if you have any questions - Carol (Alson Levi Spencer's brother, Seymour Spencer, is my great grandfather)

Haney, Elton
I think there is a relationship error. Elton L. Haney cannot be the son of Jacob H. Haney and Mary Margaret Cummens Haney. Mary Margaret, his supposed mother was born in 1869 and it states Elton was born in 1879. That means his mother was 10 years old when she had him. Thank you.
