RE: anna Garrison
Marge....I don't see an Anna Garrison at the Hilltop Cemetery where I'm doing quite a bit of work....also when I've attempt to add the person as their own spouse it won't let me do it...could it be that I just added the middle initial "B" but again not sure where this memorial is...Bonnie

Thomas R. Lafler
Marge, I am the gr. granddaughter of Thomas R. Lafler. His son, Jesse Gilbert Lafler was my grandfather. I have a photo of Thomas and will try to place it on the burial record. His birthdate according to oldest daughter, Mildred (Lafler) Lydick, deceased, lived in Ponca City, OK, told me that Roger was born March 18, 1879 in Barada, Richardson Co., NE, but his death cert. said PA. I don't think it was PA. I think Mildred is correct. you have the name of his spouse, Amanda? I have a lot of information on all the kids that Roger and Amanda has (13 of them). Jeanne Bethel

This was my Great Uncle. You have an error on the page you created for him. His mother was:
Ella Myra Green, not Ella Marla Greene. Could you please make the corrections? Thank you in advance,

Do you know anything about this family & their connection with any Willis families? She testified in a deposition that she knew Merrill Willis' sister Melissa in DeKalb Co Mo about 1849-50, during the time that my Cates & Willis families were in that area.

Hugh Phillips
Thanks for the help. I do note the death certificate names. Death certificate for Isabelle Phillips in 1929 with Hugh Phillips listed as husband. A son, Alex Gordon Phillips death certificate 1917...lists parents as Hugh Phillips & Francis E.(or I.) Allord...which should be Allard. Hope someone can clarify the correct names for his wife. Thank you!
