Lydia Sides Newton # 84727542
Alan, what is the basis for your belief that Lydia Sides Grammer Newton is buried in the Castlewood, Hamlin County, South Dakota cemetery? The photo of this Lydia Newton's gravestone says "Mother - Lydia" and anther stone in the plot says "Father - Seymour Newton" The primary Headstone says "S. Newton". As you know, our Lydia Sides Grammer Newton was married to William Durwin Newton. Also the date of death for this Lydia is 1909.

My nickname is Trey but my birth name is Thomas Ernest Oglesby III. My father is Thomas Jr. from Waxahachi and my Papa is Thomas Sr. originally from Mississippi. I would love to get to know you and find out some of the information you have discovered in your research. Below is what I have so far and I am fairly sure of its accuracy but there could be errors…..

Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you!!

I am requesting transfer management of Danny Gene Robinson # 114474213 . I have known Danny since eighth grade in 1953. We graduated high school in 1958 at Haysi High School, Haysi VA JDanny was number fourth of the nineteen who have passed. Hopefully I can get all of them transferred for me to manage. I am not Danny’s kinfolks but over the past sixty some years our class is very close. Thank you for considering the transfer.

Lewis Shaffer
Hello Alvin, I'm grateful to you for photographing Buckeye Cemetery near Morton Illinois because several of my relatives (including a 3rd great grandfather, Christopher Shaffer) are buried. I do have a question though about my great grandfather, Lewis Shaffer 1846-1924 grave. The marker says Lewis Shaffer with the dates. My records have him named Lewis Madden Shaffer but I see that he is listed under Lewis Monroe Shaffer. Can you tell me where the Monroe middle name was found? I want to be certain of his middle name and I also hope to do some tracking to see if research will lead to other family members since Madden or Monroe appear to be family names. I would really appreciate learning why his name is Lewis Monroe Shaffer in your records. Thank you. Linda Sutton Folk (my paternal grandmother was Lewis' daughter, Cora)
