Thanks for accepting the changes on George W. Harvey. I really appreciate it. He was the brother of my Great Grandfather.
|James Coston||RE: Re: Jack B Tunnell # 46105785|
I appreciate the new info on Jack Tunnell.
U might want to consider posting all this on his memorial site, it might ring a bell for someone.
That is the first mention of "cremation" that I have seen & might just mean his relatives kept the urn instead of having it buried.
The local mortuary here has never heard of the attending funeral home so they must have been in the Dallas area. I tried to find them via google but turned up empty handed. If they are still operating and their location can be determined, I'll stop by and see if there might be a section # in their in-house records. I don't know much else that can be done.
Later, James Coston

Thanks for the additions.
|Janet Straub||Harriet Cornell|
Thank you so much! I'd have never seen it! I've had the photo for years, but always thought it was just "daughter." (Don't know where I came up w/Arnet in my first message you!)
|Janet Straub||Arnett Cornell|
I'm wondering how you found a name for this infant daughter of Sarah A. and Peter Cornell. Both the photo I have and the one on Find A Grave just show "Dau. of P & S. A Cornell." Peter & Sarah Cornell were my great grandparents. Thanx!

Mary Melvina Largen Boston was my grandmother. Would you please transfer her memorial to me?
|Brent Richardson||Grandma Ketchum|
On Thursday morning February 19th, the spirit of "Grandma" Ketchum passed to its well earned reward after a sojourn of 90 years and a half in its frame of clay and in the world of heartaches and joys. She was known as the "Grand Old Lady of Lisbon: for her sterling Christian character and kindly ministrations of life.
For many years she made her home at her grandson's J. Richmond, and up to within a week of her death was able to take her part in all the activities of the home equal to many two score younger than she.
She was a member of the local Methodist church and was given a funeral by the membership attending in a body to do her honor as a Christian and faithful child of the "Faith once delivered unto the saints" Rev. H. Styles Hariss, pastor of the church, officiated at the service.
Grandma was born in New York State, July 12 1829. Married and moved to Wisconsin about 70 years ago, when the West was new and civilization had not begun to sweep across the desert of America. She followed the advice of Horace Greely "Go West! and grow up with the country" She then moved to Illinois and then to Minnesota and onward to North Dakota. She has two daughters living in Wisconsin and one son out west.
Folks in Lisbon will miss her genial presence and the relating of her varied experience of life and the great experience in Christ.
Funeral service was held last Friday afternoon and internment to be made in Oakwood Cemetery. John Wesley said "Our people die well" Grandma's death was a victorious inheritance to the lad of rest.

Her death is also mentioned in the prior week newspaper stating that she died on February 19.
|Glen Gallagher||Martha Rivers-Amanda Cemetery|
I visited the Amanda Cemetery this week, but did not find the grave for Martha Rivers. I can't say that I did a 100% check of all the graves - it was a little colder than I realized so I was sort of rushed. However I did not see any markers for the Rivers family. Also there are a fair number of unmarked stone monuments, so it's possible that Martha might be buried at one of these.
