If you would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please let me know by using the Edit tab and sending me a note.

RE: Mallie Jane Elliott Sprinkle
Yes, sometimes a bride and a groom will indeed have the same surname (distant cousins or whatever), but in this case, I do not think Mallie was previously married. She is shown as "Miss" and it does not show that she is widowed as it does for James Sprinkle and also others on the same page. Plus Bertha's marriage record does not have a father's name. I am not sure if Virgil was Mallie's son or her nephew. I am sure that Bertha was very close to her grandmother. Mallie and Bertha (and maybe Virgil) undoubtedly were born in grandma's house and grew up there. When Mallie married, Bertha just continued living with grandma.

Mallie Jane Elliott Sprinkle
I received your message. It appears as if Mallie was an unmarried woman when she and James Sprinkle married. The license/certificate shows her as Miss Mallie Elliott in more than once place. Also, the martial status of the bride and groom is reflected in the register entry. James is shown as a widower, as are other brides/grooms on the page who were widowed. And in those cases the woman is shown as Mrs., not Miss. Mallie is shown simply as "of age."

Interestingly, on daughter Bertha's marriage record for the father's name, it shows Ben Williams, guardian. Mallie, of course, is named as her mother.

There is a marriage record for a Virgil Elliott of about the right age. Father's name is blank. Mother's is Ellen Elliott. I don't see that Mallie had a sister named Ellen (although she could have been born after 1880 and out of the household before 1900).

Who could say that genealogy isn't interesting :-)

Stiles photos
James, Thank you for all the nice photos from Howevalley Cemetery. I do hope you can take photos of all those interred at Stiles/Shipley when you are able to go there. It does not appear that anyone has taken any photos there. It looks like 1915 was the last time anyone was interred there and some of the stones date back to the early 1800's! Thanks again James!

RE: Emil Seiffert
I honestly can't tell you where the Seiffert's married in. I am doing the Argersingers' 12 children & all their children to the present generation to the best of my ability. Sometimes families just "come out of the woodwork" for generations due to what I find on Findagrave, etc. The reason I don't remember exactly nwhere they "fit" in is that my husband has had a series of heart attacks since3 last Oct. & I have been VERY busy with that. My own health has not been all that great either. Just to give you an example of why I don't remember exactly where people fit is that my last book was 1900 pages of info with an average of 20 people per page! And, that family was only from 1831!!!! I had a side ways tree instead of the usual perpendicular tree. If I happen to run into any more info on that family, I will send it to you. Since you have so many pictures, may I suggest that you contact & submit them there so everyone can see their folks. Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck, Carol Frey

From Carol Frey. I am only a "shirt tail" relative. The Seifferts married into my Argersinger family.

Stiles-Shipley Cemetery
Hello James, The cemetery is supposed to be across from the school. I understand it is quite overgrown. I think David Goodman owns the property and I have been told you might want to wait till after the first frost kills back some of the vegetation because there might be snakes! BTW, Thanks for the photo of the stones for James William and Ellen Harned Stiles. I will try to get hold of Carolyn Wimp. I think she may have more info.
