RE: Bell Family History No relation. I am building a database of all Veterans of the War of 1812 who lived or died Iowa for the Iowa branch of the General Society of the War of 1812. Being a descendant, you are welcome to join. To date, I have 690 names, never knew it would go far beyond 300. When I started, the Iowa Department Affairs only knew of 32. It is something to keep me busy in retirement. If interested, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Please put 1812 somewhere in the subject line so not to be accidently deleted.
RE: Ann Lelia Francis Parrish This is great ! So pleased to hear from you ! Sort of busy at this time of year but would love for you to connect with me at Lippincott@gmail.com Maxwell, Nebraska is a 4 hour drive west of Lincoln (where I live) but in the future I will try to follow up on this - I will look closer into my files and see if I made a mistake somehow - it is possible, you know - of course it could also just be a cenotaph (sp?) those were tough times - Do you use ancestry.com ?
At a mutually convenient time we could talk - (954) 830-5055
RE: William Shelley Hi Dennis Wanted to touch base with you and see if you have any new information... I have an idea that I wanted to share with you - let me know what you think? On Family Search I typed in last name Shelley (no first name) born in Iredell county, NC and place of residence Henry County, IN. and several Shelleys came up, on James Shelley census page a son was listed as born in Ohio, I know that William Shelley family traveled to Ohio ( found this reading his obit)William was not listed on this census as he was already married. all the other children listed were born in IN. I believe - Wm. was two yrs of age when family left NC for OH. Its the best lead I've had, I know I need more to go on - let me know if you have anything on this James Shelley b. 1805 married to Isabel( first wife ) also had second wife. I think he died after 1850 and before 1860. - Brenda
Gail Conn Bell Dear Dennis, Gail was my cousin and I'm so sorry to hear of her passing. Her father (Uncle Jonny)and my dad (Dewey or Uncle Dink as the called him ) were brothers any information you could send me on Gail would be greatly appretiated since we were not that close ie; how she passed away and how many children she had and any living siblings of hers. I believe the last we saw of you folks was up in Montana at my oldest sisters house some time ago.My dad is still living (84 yrs old) not doing all that great but sad to see them all leaving us.Thank you in advance for any information you can pass along. My email address is email@example.com

I'm so sorry I haven't been on much help lately and have taken so long to get back to you. I am getting by, thank you. Everything has just been a whirl wind the last few months. My half sister Micaela sadly took her life in October, and I think it has really taken affect on myself and my family. I hope all is well with you? Oh, and feel free to use any photos I have taken; I generally ask people cite me as the photographer, so when used for research, it gives the work a citation to point to.
Peter & Sarah Oman are not buried in Schoolcraft Township Cemetery in Vicksburg, MI. They are buried in Schoolcraft Township Cemetery in Schoolcraft, MI. This is a case of duplicate memorials and confusion over the different cemeteries under the administration of Schoolcraft Township. Both creators appear to be inactive too. Their memorials (#45836249 )include photos. If you need confirmation about which cemetery is the correct one go to "http://www.kalamazoogenealogy.org/Cemeteries/Search.htm" and do a search of Oman. They have pictures of the stones there too.
Willhide Memorials I was able to get out to photograph the Willhide and Wade memorials, although the Iowa weather has not been very cooperative so they are not "beautiful" pictures, so I do apologize. With regard to Joseph Willhide's monument, you can probably see that the engraving is quite worn and barely readable. Although probably not until the Spring, I plan to get back out to that cemetery and make some rubbings of some of the older markers to see if I can read any information. I will be sure to update you with anything I find.
