|Joni R||Joseph Baird|
Hi, You posted an obituary on the Joseph Baird memorial #23579855, however, the dates don't match him. Could you move that obituary to his son Joseph Baird Jr's memorial #35247149 where the dates match?

|Neil Wicai||Rosa Ellen (Ward) Helms, Mem.# 93899851|
I have been researching my wife's Great Grandparents, Philip W. Helms and Rosa Ellen (Ward) Helms, who lived in Kiowa County and later in Otero County, Colorado. I found your listing for Rosa in the Eads Cemetery along with that of her step daughter, Gertrude Lottie Helms.
I know that Gertrude's body was reburied there when the family moved from their homestead near Eads in Kiowa County in the mid to late 1890's. But I am surprised to see that Rosa would have been buried there also.
The family sold their homestead in Kiowa County in February of 1898 and were living in the La Junta area in Otero County when Rosa died in October of 1898. Family history records say that she died in La Junta. I would normally expect that she would have been buried there, not back up in Eads.
Do you know for a fact that she is indeed buried there? Is there a gravestone for her there, which would verify this for sure?
Any information you may be able to provide will be greatly appreciated. You may e-mail me directly at the address below. Thank you in advance for your time and efforts.
so, hope you dont mind my asking. john and patrick father/son? relation to each other.
it's kinda odd since the photo of john mckenna had very similar birth and death years. not 2 mention the months--they were the same.
im thinking that what you sent me would suggest brothers? correct? or not? Sue
|Robert Voigt||Alfred Robert Elmore / Memorial # 49178440|
During the First World War Alfred R. Elmore worked closely with Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt on a "home front" campaign called "Eyes For The Navy" asking the public to donate binoculars, field glasses, and telescopes to the Navy for anti-submarine surveillance. I am writing a book about the "Eyes For The Navy" campaign and would like to include a Chapter about Elmore and his contribution to the project. Any information about Elmore that is available to you and that you could share with me would be most appreciated.

|Dena West||Clara Townsend Info|
If you go here- http://seekingmichigan.org/discover-collection?collection=p129401coll7 you can do a search on her name and find her death certificate. It says she died at the state hospital in Kalamazoo, she was married, age 34, the daughter of Fred C Wilkins and Helen M Towne, and she was born in Michigan. Children are not noted. I don't know if this helps you or not. Best of luck!
|Dustin McCaffree||Ebenezer Fairchild|
You asked information about Ebenezer Fairchild at Mormon Island Cemetery. I was sent this email for you to contact:
"The El Dorado County Museum has volunteers that help with this type of research.
Phone 530-621-5865 E-mail, Rodi Lee our expert on Mormon Island is at the museum on most Thursdays. You can direct your e-mail to her. Rodi has been doing extensive research on the people buried at Mormon Island Relocation Cemetery. The museum is the best resource for any type of genealogical question on people from El Dorado County.
Take a peak at the El Dorado County Cemeteries web page too. ."
I didn't have your email to respond. I hope you get this.
|Pam D||RE: Houghton family|
My pleasure. I want to let you know that these Houghtons are actually buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Wellington.
I was told that many years ago alot of the bodies from the "old cemetery" were moved to Greenwood and actually, only the bodies and not the stones were moved. I don't know if that is actually true, but these Houghtons are at Greenwood Cemetery along with other Houghtons.
If there are any more you would like photos of, please let me know as it is just down the street from my house.

Thanx again for your efforts and interest.
|Sherryl Clark||Zephaniah Knapp Grave Posting|
Hi, Just thought I'd share some info to your Zephaniah Knapp posting for Marcy Cemetery. This is also called the Methodist Cemetery for Duryea, Luzerne Co., PA. Zephaniah Knapp's (who is a Revolutionary War soldier) son, Joseph Knapp(an 1812 soldier)is buried in Marcy as well and the John Knapp you have listed is Joseph Knapp's son. Zephaniah Knapp was one of the first postal riders for the Wyoming Valley and his son, Joseph's hunting journal entitled "The Leather Shirt" is held by the historical society there. Just across from John Knapp is a headstone for my great, great grandfather, Peter Knapp and his wife Amanda(Knecht)Knapp. At this point, I don't know how Peter is related to these other Knapps but feel there must be some connection to be buried in such close proximity. When I visited Marcy Cemetery was told by the caretaker that most of the records for the church & cemetery had burned back in the mid-90's. Will welcome hearing from anyone researching Peter Knapp family.
