No apology needed.
We know that family pretty well since we do care for their graves, but I never assume we know it all. I thought you might know some tid bit we did not.

John Brwon - military service??
I have a question about John Brown listed below:

Find A Grave Memorial# 67372414

John is my wife's 4th grandfather and we tend to the graves of John and Nancy (Wood) Brown and Lucy (Johnson) Wood.

You left flowers on the F.A.G. site for John Brown with a man carrying a revolutionary flag representing his "service".

What service would that be??

Thank You
I never knew my great grandparents name, I just knew where they were laid to rest in unmarked graves at Camp Ground. My mother loved that church I could tell.
We are cousins like 6th if I did my figures right but it doesn't matter, It is just nice to meet others in the family. My grandfathers brothers widow Aunt Geraldine Rhodes had an idea once to have a family reunion in Luverne at the community center her son over rode that idea.
I use to meet a lot of Turners and Rhodes at great grandmothers MS Lousana Jeffcoat Rhodes birthday party. MS Daisy sister-in-law married into the Turner family.
When I was in the seventh grade Great Grandmother sat with me and explained to all that would listen how the Turner Family was kin. By the time she finished I had over 100 pages of geanology, back in 1970 and a 11 year old or so I didn't know the importance. We have the Hinshaw Family on the internet, maybe I need to start the Turner and Rhodes side as well.
Thank you for responding so quickly. I live in Houston TX if you all are ever this way, some times I go home to Black Oak, AR. Grew up in Midland City, AL just outside Dothan, I have two brothers and my sister that still live there. My brother Kenneth is CFO for CBS News west coast, my oldest brother William Donnie passed in Janaury 03. He had a stroke on his daughters Ashely 16 th birthday. God at least him see her turn 16. He was a drug and alcohol user they couldn't do anything for him. He was my only brother!
Again thank you. my email is

RE: Robert James Thompson
Hi Lynn:
The source of the photo is "History of Orange
County California," published 1921.
Robert J. Thompson is on page 983.


There is a Biographical Sketch of Robert in this
book. It describes him as "A highly progressive
In the biography it has two marriages for Robert:
1) Evelyn L. Flagg, dau. of Lucius and Elmyra
(Chittenden) Flagg, and the great granddaughter
of Thomas Chittenden the first governor of Vermont.
After Evelyn's death Robert married
2) Ida May Garrett

There is much more information. If you cannot
connect with the book let me know.

Good Luck with your family research.

I'm glad to help, Lynn. I remember that cemetery well. I passed it on the way home from hiking and had to stop.

Hannan Mausoleum in Walnut Hill
Hello Lynn, I see you posted the early photo of the Hannan Mausoleum in Walnut Hill cemetery in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on the Charles R. Hannan memorial. Are you by chance related to the family?

Thanks for the transfer. Your story on him was very interesting. We will probably find similar tales if I am correct.

Have a great day and keep up the good work on Find a Grave.

Later, Bob

He is buried at Howell Cemetery in Trion, Chattooga, GA
I was having dinner with my friend one week ago today. She mentioned that her very sick father was thinking about his life and has told her several times he was 12 when his dad died and "I don't even remember where he is buried". I said come on let's go to my house, and we will see what we can find on Ancestry. Well it came up and within a few days I found all his family data - it was a gold mine in genealogy. I am so grateful for your work. You have made one tearfully happy family very excited this Memorial Day as she took her Dad to see his father's burial place. I have done lots of work on Find A Grave and Ancestry but none that have made my years as worthwhile as this one.
