Oralee Southwick Bay
This appears to be an error on the Jefferson Co., MO listing of deaths for Herculaneum City Cemetery.

Findagrave states we have to go by the stone and it says Oralee Bay Southwick. Southwick being the last name. Oralee was the daughter of David Bay and Margaret Josephine Priest.

Just wanted to explain my "Edit" to correct the name.

RE: John W. Honey
Hi Bill,
I'm in Boston right now for another week so i wouldn't be able to help you. I went through every Honey/Honea record i could find to place them. I have other cousin's on find a grave and we help each other as much as possible. This is the only place open to the public left to find each other. Alot of my Honey info came from my great grandma's 1st cousin Babe Burson/Marian Mallinson she past in 2006?

Thanks Tamela

Rose & Charles W. Herbert
Bill, My name is Marcy Hammers, My F.A.G. Member # is 47911021. I noticed on Charles W. Herbert # 44671575 that you put Rose Herbert's (# 44671584) family information on his instead of hers. I would appreciate it if you could put her family information on her memorial site so people won't put the wrong information on Charles W. Herbert's family information.

Her name is Rosa Marie Higgins, Her parents are Thomas Robert Higgins & Sarah Ann Simons. She married William Andrew Lyons first & had one son Charles Joseph Lyons.

Sarah Ann Simons is the daughter of my great great Grandfather & his first wife Mary Jane Barlett.

Thomas Robert Higgins is the brother of my great great Grandmother Martha Ellen "Ella" Higgins Who is the second wife of Alvin Simons (Sarah's father).

Thank you for all you do. I really appreciate it. I am hoping to be able to come to Herculaneum in September to do some research.

Autenrieth and Haggard Families
Thank you so much for the transfer of the Autenrieth members buried in Herculaneum. I appreciate it and will take great care of them.

My Haggard connection is my maternal GGG-Grandfather, Benjamin Haggard, who married Rebecca Doss on 4/24/1855 in Lincoln, KY. By 1870 they were living in Liberty Township, Crawford Co., MO and had 4 children: Eliza, Mary (my GG-Grandmother), Martha and William. Are they in your research anywhere?

Mary Magdalena Scheibelhuit
Bill, I've added the name Mary, as you requested. Would you happen to know the correct spelling of the maiden name? I've included 2 different spellings on the memorial page, because I've found it spelled both ways.
