I am into photography and genealogy, so if you need help with a photo of a grave site or want me to search for some obscure farm house cemetery, I am up for the adventure. I currently live in the Charlotte, NC area.
Jane Henderson Tate Thank you for linking. You might be interested in reading the articles I wrote last night for her son, James Nolley Tate (linked) who was very greatly loved by the deaf communities of the mid-west - truly an unusual man. There are also stories for his wife, & son Isaac Nolley Tate. All 3 unusually interesting people. I was raised in Callaway. My gg grandfather owned the newspaper, the Missouri Telegraph, from 1856-1882. I have microfilm of all papers here at home. From 1882 to 1912 the paper belonged to my g grandfather. If you have dates you'd like me to check, I can do that.... Annie Jaech Springfield, IL
RE: Bender's Just let me know if you need any more info & I'm fairly certain that I have taken more Bender photos, as soon as my time frees up, I have about 200 photos of misc requests to post just way to busy to sit still right now! Kat
RE: Bender's Hi there, How current do you know of any of your Bender family? I ask because I know some of that family name that still lives here in the county. There's a Darius Bender that just passed away a few months ago, he was only in his late 40's & an awesome, giving, life saving man. He has a brother whose daughter graduated HS with my daughter in 2000. I'm still in touch with Danny & his family. I've seen the Bender's in most of the cemeteries I've been in for Findagrave & others for friends & family. I'll keep an eye out in my travels & take photos of those I find. Kat
Bender's Sorry, I forgot you asked for any other Benders located in Cobleskill Rural & St.Vincent de Paul's Cem. There are quite a lot of them & in diff. locales there. Do you have any idea of names to look for? If not, that's ok but, it will take a day when I have a lot more time than I do these days! Just let me know & be patient? Kat
William Bender Hi there, I just rec. a message from a Stephen Miller that said he was the wrong one??? Anyway, just in case, I'll send this to you & if I have the wrong person again, I apologize. A friend of mine was the Funeral Dir. here for many yrs & knows the Cobleskill Rural Cem. as well as many others. He has the records of the Cob. Cem. & I went to him when I couldn't find William Bender. According to the records, he actually died from a "crushed chest" on Dec.24, 1964. Apparently his funeral may have been June 2, 1965 & burial was June 9, 1965. He should be in the Evergreen Section of the cemetery but, neither of us could find any stone for him there (my friend came to check when I told him I couldn't find). There are several base stones within that area so, it's possible a gravestone was never put on a base?? I can photo that Section for you if you'ld like. Best I could do other than maybe checking some records at the Old Stone Fort (where I volunteer with geneology). Out of my own curiousity, I probably will on my next time there! Sorry, but, maybe at least this info can help you? Kat Cannon Coons also reach at Kcannoncoons@gmail.com
Though you did not ask, I am going to transfer this memorial to you since it is a maternal gg grandparent. Direct line ancestors, no matter how far back, should be transferred to the first one who asks and since I have no direct lineage, you should have it.
VERY INTERSTING that his brother was Benjamin Criswell. I never even thought of there being a connection. I have studied the Battle of the Little Big Horn extensively and was familiar with his name.
Thanks for writing. I made the connections you requested.
You did not explain how you are related and you do not have a stated transfer policy to show that you are willing to transfer outside of the guidelines I will transfer to you if you are willing to transfer outside of the guidelines and if you tell me how you are related please let me know as I only wont to make sure that immediate family will be able to get there memorials if they would like to maintain them. Please let me know and I will make the transfer
