Kenworthy Memorials
Hi Shirley,

Is there any way to tell if the two memorials identified only as Kenworthy in the North Branch Cemetery in Earlham belong to Harmon and Matilda Kenworthy? They are memorials 40569061 and 40569067. I found a Hinshaw record that says Harmon is buried "Earlham Cem. Ia." and Matilda is buried "Earlham Ia. Cem." The Iowa Gravestone project does not list the two burials at North Branch.

Thanks for your help.

RE: about Mariah
I have a copy of the death Certificate also from Ancestry. If that would help let me know what you would need to get a copy?? Or how I could send it to you. By the way her Married name was Clark

Samuel Bates
My second great grandmother was Mariah Bates her death certificate clearly states that her parents were Samuel and Eliza Bates. Also she was married to Amasa Clark Jr, brother to Nancy Clark Bates (whom was married to Estratus Bates). I am pretty sure that this is the correct connection, but I can't find where Mariah is shown on any of the records as a daughter. Does anyone have information that would help me with this mystery?

Hi Shirley,

That was an old note for Thomas. At the time I wrote it there were a number of children's memorials not linked, including duplicate memorials for Hannah. One appears to have been deleted and the other for Hannah is now linked to Thomas so I remove her name (and others now linked) from the note.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to update the memorial.

RE: Darius Button's wife Sarah
Her death certificate is posted on her memorial. Gives her father's name as John VanVecten (not sure of the spelling) and her mother as Matilda Blanchard.

Thomas and Ruth (Barnett) Wilson
According to a Wilson history book, DESCENDANTS OF CHRISTOPHER WILLSON OF YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND AND NEW CASTLE COUNTY, DELAWARE, (Library of Congress Catalog Card Number 84-153655), Thomas Wilson was born Aug 2, 1803 in Clinton Co, OH, and died March 10, 1888 and was buried in North Branch Cemetery, Earlham. His Wife Ruth was born March 29, 1834 in Marion Co., IN, and died May 12, 1885 also buried in North Branch Cemetery, Earlham, IA. Neither of these graves are currently listed in North Branch Cemetery on the Find a Grave site. I am only somewhat familiar with the cemetery. Their stones would be very old. Do you know whether there are old stones that are not documented because they are unreadable?
Louise Hartman, descended from John and Lydia Wilson who are also buried in North Branch Cemetery and whose grave stones appear to be 20th century replacements of older stones.

Ronald Thomas Salyer
Good morning: I have emailed a couple of times about adding the published obituary for my high school classmate, Ronald Thomas Salyer, buried in Highland Cemetery, Ashland, Kansas. I provided the obituary published in the Spearville News. The obituary also provided information on possible links to his father Thomas D. Salyer, also buried in the same cemetery. I used the shirleyw55 address.

With the assistance and consideration of other Find A Grave contributors, the other obituaries for my deceased high school classmates have been added--Walt B. Giessel, Mary E. Klenke Hornung, and David Brumbaugh, St. John Cemetery, Spearville, KS and Protection, KS respectively.

It would be helpful to receive some correspondence from you on at least if you will not add the obituary. In conversation with Ronald's mother during a visit with her last month in Ashland Kansas, I told her I would try to work with the contributor in adding it.

Again, thank you. I hope to hear from you in the near future.

Sincerely, Michael Schulte

P.S. I provided my Find A Grave member number in earlier correspondences
