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.

Hi Jill - thanks so much for all your postings on Find A Grave. Found some family members that you added and have submitted some edits and family links to you on your edit page that I hope you will approve. I don't need them transferred, just would like them all linked so they are not forgotten.

Thanks again!!

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.

RE: memorial 38419554
Hello, Jill.
In response to your e-mail re: Theobold Kern: I did some checking on Ancestry and I believe you are correct that the Find A Grave photo is for Theobold Kern Jr. instead of Theobold Kern Sr.
According to a document I found, the "Civil War" Theobold Kern is 26 years old on May 31, '64. Another record shows his mother, Catharine Kern, applying for a Civil War Pension.
I will delete the photos on the memorial site on Find A Grave.

Do you know anything about the family? I could create and add the photos to another memorial for Theobold Jr. We know he is buried at this cemetery. But I would have no birth & death dates. If you are interested in the documents I found, I would be happy to share.

Thank you for alerting me of the error.

Susan Barbee Owens memorial
Hi Jill-
Thanks for creating such a nice memorial for Susan (my gr-gr-gr-grandmother). I have recently discovered her husband William T. Oens grave in Richland County, Wisconsin, and added it as a suggested edit. The memorial was mistakenly listed as another William Owens, but someone recently put in a photo (angel!) and it's clearly William T. The memorial is being updated.

Here are the Find A Grave ID numbers for the rest of Susan's children. Since you have my gr-gr-grandfather, William White and Martha, I thought you might like to link the rest:

Son, Columbus Preston 45797081
Son, Robert Thomas 28058944
Son, Sherman 28058949

Thanks again!
