davis surname in platte county
I checked your records & see that they seem to have come thru KY from MD, but still have to ask: do you know of any connection between the Davis family in your records and the Davis & Haight families who came from NY? I ask because my ancestor Missouri Anna Yoakum, whose mother was a Drais/Drace, married Silas Davis from NY & then his kinsman named Haight, also from NY. They supposedly died in the Civil War & I'm having trouble figuring out what was going on..

May I have your permission to copy Mary Katherine Shafer Boyle's marker? It will be for my personal genealogy. If permission is granted, I will put your name on the picture of the marker. I will want my family to know who took the picture. She was the daughter of my great aunt Margaret Hercules Shafer.

You posted a photo for this gravestone in 2011 and it is good you did! It is now practically unreadable. It's is just awful how much damage has been done in only 3 years time. It reaffirms that the photo-documentation this site promotes is invaluable.

RE: John Rohring
Ok, interesting, ... do you know if there is a headstone for John Jr (and Henry) at this same cemetery?

RE: John Rohring
Which son? I wish I could send the copy of the 1870 Census. I do believe Sarah's maiden name should be (may be, not certain) Moore.

Hi, Bill. Thank you for all your work in connecting us to our ancestors. Can you tell me where you got the date of birth for Anna Maria Harris Crutchfield? The only record I could find that indicated birth was the 1850 census, where she's listed as 41 years of age. This means she could have been born in 1808 or 1809. If it was 1809, as the memorial states, she would have been illegitimate, as her father died in Feb of 1808. You can see why I'd like to know. If possible, could you email me at the address below?
Thank you.

I found the gravestone of my 3rd great grandfather John Rohring thanks to your posting a photo in the Laurel Hill Cemetery area. Thanks so much! I see his wife's name was Sarah and it appears the maiden name is Helfrey. How do we know that is the correct maiden name. many on Ancestry have her name as Moore. ?? just a little confused. If there are other Rohring headstones in this cemetery I would be interested in seeing them as well. I have photographs of Henry, Josie, and another of their brothers taken in Horton (I believe). Thanks for your dedication to history!!

Anna Carlene Dreyer
I am searching for Anna Carlene Foster, born in 1921 and graduated from Pittsboro, Indiana High School in 1939. Anna Carlene Dreyer 1921 keeps
coming up. However I can't verify that she is the
Anna Carlene Foster that I am searching for, and
since you are a Foster, I was thinking you might know. I surely would appreciate you letting me know if Anna Carlene Dreyer is Anna Carlene Foster.
Very much appreciate your help.
Thanks, Lou Spoon

I cannot thank you enough! Do you have any more info on William Guthrie and Mary Yates perchance? are there any newspapers from the mid to late 1800's still extant from Platte Co?

RE: William Guthrie
Do you have exact dates of death for William Guthrie and Mary his wife perchance? People keep listing the court date that his children were bonded as his death date, and I knew that was wrong. Thanks!
