|charles bachman||Jonathan Bachman|
I am Charles R. Bachman, great-great grandson of Jonathan Bachman born 1825, and I wonder if you can help me clear up a discrepancy between my family's oral history and the written record.
My grandfather, Charles A. Bachman, told me (as did others in my family) that his grandfather Jonathan A. Bachman (married to Alice Darty) was from Hamburg, Germany, and got to the U.S. by deserting the German navy. However, I've just seen the picture and information on Jonathan Bachman on the Find a Grave site--and even though all the other information--birth and death dates, marriage, children (including my great-grandfather Ira Bachman, whom I knew as a child), his two terms of service in the Civil War (I have copies of his induction papers)--matches, it appears that he was actually from Tennessee, and his forebears had been in the U.S. for several generations. Did someone in the family--perhaps Johann Friedrich--desert the German navy to get here?
|Paul Rolfe||Donaldson photo requests|
I wanted to let you know, I visited the grave site of the Donaldson graves and visited with the cemetery office staff to confirm my results on these markers you requested. There are eight Donaldson graves all in a row there; however, only the graves of George and Anna in lot 289 are marked. The others are unmarked - they include Joseph (an infant) plus Chester and Lester (infant twins) in lot 291; Bessie and Frank in lot 292; and, Raymond (an infant) in lot 293. These graves are difficult to locate as you must either approach from Walnut Hill section 07 and enter thick woods that lead down a ten foot hill to an isolated area below or approach from St Joseph Cemetery (which adjoins Walnut Hill for a short distance). If you park in St. Joseph near the Walnut Hill section 07 that adjoins it, you will find an abandoned lane - not quite a road (on the east end of that adjoining area) that leads downhill to Green Valley (an abandoned cemetery below) and along the side of this road, perhaps halfway to Green Valley, you can see the marker for George and Anna and one more marker with a different surname. There are only wooded hillsides surrounding them - no other evidence of a cemetery. I will try to get photos and post them to show the location but we have had extensive rain so it may be a few days.

I found Edward and Mary though no Jacob
I went ahead and added the photo of Okla's memorial to her husband's memorial.
|Douglas Day||Mem #31456557 - Ely Best|
I have added a picture for the above memorial which you noted had no marker. It is on the side of his wife's marker. Thought you might like to change his bio.
|Elise Parish||Esther Terry|
I spent an enjoyable few hours this afternoon with Esther Terry's great granddaughter, who happens to be the township clerk in charge of the cemetery.
|Denise Potterton||Raymond Richard Hough|
Shawn, someone uploaded a photo for both of the Hough's already. Not sure what happened but just noticed as I went to upload.

I would like your permission to use your photo of Allen-Claybrook Cemetery gate on The Missouri Gravestone Project website. We are non-profit and I will list you as the contributor. If you would like to post your other photos or allow those to be posted with you listed as contributor, we would be thrilled! : )

|Roger Straw||Lewis Billington|
Hi Shawn - I posted 2 photos today from Benicia City Cemetery showing the grave of Lewis V Billington. In your request, you added, "and Wife." There was no wife's gravestone there today, only empty space beside his grave. A little Ancestry.com research suggests that his wife was Ida Elnora Marinda Larsen. They married in 1911, and the 1920 census shows them together in Spring City, Sanpete, Utah. But the 1930 and 1940 census shows her as divorced, living in Spring City.
|sleuthesthedead||Irene and Clifton Walker|
I am not related to Irene and Clifton Walker at Sunset Memorial Gardens, I took the photo you requested this morning. If you're related and would like to manage their memorials just send me a transfer request from their memorial pages.
