|grandmacarol||Louise/Sterling Wilson--Peninsula Cemetery|
fyi, just wanted you to know that I have uploaded a photo of the stone for Louise and Sterling. If you have an interest in other memorials at Peninsula Cemetery in Cooper County, Missouri, I either have or will be in the next few days, updating those with photos as well.
|Vickie BYRUM Schley||Arvilla & Almon Barnum Byrum|
I noticed you have both these memorials on Find A Grave::: Arvilla Mellissa Starkey Byrum Find A Grave Memorial #53296738 and Almon Barnum Byrum Find A Grave Memorial #53296407
Almon Barnum Byrum is my g-grandfather. I have information on him other then what is listed on his Find A Grave sight. Are you related to Arvilla Mellissa Starkey Byrum? You may of noticed I placed a picture of her headstone on your Find A Grave listing for her. I can send you more information on my G-Grandfathers, Almon Barnum Byrum, but I would rather you transfer his memorial to me. Thanks Vickie BYRUM Schley

I just linked eli to sena-
eli is my dad's 4th or 5th GG grandfather-
I note many people have both listed over and over and I am trying to get Find A Grave to fix this.
the stone u list has sena on it...and in some other listings it mentions she shares it with colonel eli cornett.
this is the SAME eli I have listed as private-
go to sena now-u will see his listing too- click on it and it tells the story of ZWHY he has 2 stones and WQHY he was both a col. and a private.
thanks so much
I went back and checked to see if there was mention of Ferdinands parents on the Cooper county website and did not see them there. If you're unfamiliar with it, it can be found here: http://www.cooper.mogenweb.org/Cemeteries/ST_JOHN_CATHOLIC_CHURCH_AND_CEMETERY.pdf
As I understand it, a huge effort was made in the 70's to thoroughly research every cemetery in the county. The historical society visited each one, while also checking written cemetery records, funeral home records and county records. Since then, they have used the online death certificates and printed obits to keep these records up-to-date. I've found that although they are quite accurate, there are occasional errors. Good luck in your search for Ferdinand's parents!
I just saw the photos you left of Ferdinand and Catherine Grotzinger at St. John's. If you are a relative, let me know and I'll be happy to transfer these memorials to you!

|pkarchs||Nehemiah Jones, Sr. (1735-1805)|
I saw your note w/flowers on the Nehemiah Jones (1735-1805) Find A Grave Memorial# 16829702. I have a lot of research regarding him, but have neither uploaded my ancestry.com tree nor yet connected his ancestors/descendants on F-A-G, pending further research and a few articles I wish to publish.
Best recent research regarding him may be found in: "The Settlers of the Beekman Patent, Dutchess County, New York: An Historical and Genealogical Study of all the 18th Century Settlers in the Patent - Volume IV, Hunter to Leavens", by Frank J. Doherty:
2. NEHEMIAH5 JONES, (Joseph4-3, Abraham2, Thomas1), was born 18 Oct. 1735
at Raynham and witnessed a deed for his brothers in 1754. Jonathan Hall was his
guardian until he reached his majority. He came to the South Precinct, DC by
Feb. 1759 and was taxed there and in Fredericksburgh (erected from South),
through 1779. He married Mary ___ who survived him. Nehemiah Jones served
in Capt. Joseph Dyckman's Company of DC Militia in May 1777. [SBP I:441].
Nehemiah Jones was paid $7.48 on 1 Dec. 1789 for three days hire of a cart and
four oxen at two and a half dollars a day during the Revolution.22 Nehemiah
Jones and William Pearce were appointed referees in DC Court of Common Pleas
17 May 1792 in the case of Thomas Mitchell v. Asa Haynes.
He was in Frederickstown, DC in 1790 at 3-0-4 between Thomas Crosby and
Nathaniel Jones; (he was listed at 1-0-1). Nehemiah Jones died 18 Dec. 1805 in
his 71st year and was buried in the Sears Burying Ground, town of South East,
Putnam Co., NY the next day. [OGPC 317]. Letters were granted to the widow
Mary Jones 13 January 1806 on Nehemiah Jones, late of Franklin. Other
administrators of the estate were: John Paterson, Peter Terry and Stephen Hendrickson. [DCW box 453].
22 Specie Certificates for Revolutionary War Service 1780-1782. Madame Brett Museum,
Beacon, NY, p. 4, #780.
EBENEZER JONES, ELIAS, EPHRAIM, ISAAC, JOSEPH, LEVI, NEHEMIAH,
SAMUEL and THOMAS JONES all served in the 3rd (Pawling) Regiment of the
Both citations above are from Doherty.
Finally, please note: A Nehemiah Jones also served in the 7th regiment - assumed to be Nehemiah Jr.'s father. Nehemiah and Samuel Jones in the 3rd Regiment (cited above) are assumed to be cousins of Nehemiah Jones Jr. (sons of Ebenezer Jones).
I descend from son Nathaniel Jones (1763-1848), whom you do not mention in your note: brother of Nehemiah Jr. (1760-1848), both sons of Nehemiah Jones Sr. (1735-1805).
I'd be interested in your descent from Nehemiah Sr. and any factual backup you can provide,
Philip in NYC

I saw a note on one of the memorials that you have a lot of info about Fidelia. I would love to see Fidelia's bio on her memorial page.
I come through Nahum and Millicent Curtis, but I feel like Delia is my gggggrandmother too since she took such good care of Millicent's children.

|Cris Specht||Nehemiah Jones|
I see you have flowers to Nehemiah Jones and you talk about Nehemiah Jones born 1733 being his father. I am a decendent of a Nehemiah Jones and I do not know if I connect with these 2 Nehemiah's or not. I have a tree on ancestry.com
I'm wondering if you connect to them too or just researching. Maybe you can help fit the puzzle together. Some people like Mike Burke on ancestry have the Nehemiah that was born in 1759 as my 5th grt grd fthr's, father. But I have no proof to show that it is, and neither do they.
I would appreciate any info Donna that you have.
Thank you Cris Specht email@example.com
