Robert Stancill #81013929
Hello! I enjoy reading old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and trying to match stories to the memorials on FG. I believe I have done so for Rev. Stancill. A very nice piece in the Alexandria, VA newspaper from 1916.

Thought you might enjoy reading this.

JARBOE/ARTES, etc misc
Greeting, and BEST WISHES!!!
Nothing like having "health" enter one's normal-day activities (genealogy ;), to distract. BEST WISHES!!
Yes, I'd sent a note abt the JARBOE death & court stuff - clipped newspaper copies, saving temporarily... then,decided I'd spent enough time on this non-related family... well, they WERE a "colorful" family, w/some members hitting-the- news, in the those days, quite a scandalous manner ... ;)
And, yes, believe the gr'dtr marr 4 times - I prob found that many husbands, too -- one, married "briefly" to the JARBOE, who fell from window to his death. That family had it's share of tragic deaths, w/the older Sophia being struck by streetcar...
Think also, the Wash, DC mentions are "fun" for me to read, as in 100+ yrs since they lived in the city, it's REALLY changed!! I've lived in'round since early 1960s.

...a Jarboe? Was he the husband of the granddaughter Sophia Artes Davis? ...married about four times

The Long Family At Glenwood
Your attention to detail and inquiring about facts is deeply appreciated. Accuracy is very important. I've requested The Father John's death certificate. I believe you will be right and the "dr" stood for "driver". Again thank you.

RE: Henrietta Abbott 131711257
I thought I made one for Pearl yesterday, but then I couldn't find it today. Yesterday I didn't find yours which is why I made one. I didn't have Henrietta, only Pearl from her parents' 1900 census and the inscription on their tombstone.

Yours was there first, so I'll delete mine as soon as I figure out how. I'm so sorry I created a duplicate. There's no need for two.

If you'd like to have it, I'll gladly share what documentation I have for Henrietta Pearl.

RE: French/Klotz at Glenwood
This is my son-in-law's family. I have been adding them into my ancestry family tree. I will try to send you a file with information, if you have an email address I can use. If not, go to ancestry and look him up in the Mann Stratton family tree.

Ahh figured out the Hall connection, her mother's maiden name was Hall, Iola May Hall.

RE: Pauline Proctor 82244675
Used Ohio birth index and census data before and after she was born for birth location. Death location was from SS data. I do use SS & State Index info if burial in same County. If you don't like the town, just use County.

Maiden name of Hall is incorrect. Birth index, census data, and marriage cert. to Joseph Prentice all tie to Talbott.

RE: Lucy Herrell 81457969
yeah, its annoying...
on husband Zolisopher Coffer Herrell death certificate, shows her name as lucy mcdonald herrell

daughter ruth birth record as Lucy Maria Mac Donald, death certificate as Lucy M Macdonald

son thomas birth as Lucy Maria Mac Donald, death as Lucy Mac Donald

daughter virginia birth as Lucy Maria Macdonald

son frederick dath as Lucy Macdonald

daughter lillian birth, marriage as Lucy Maria Mcdonald

i have her father as william mcdonald, died in 1878 when lucy was 11, nothing on mother roberta ann roach past the 1880 census.

william was much older than roberta, they married 1865, i him him m1 maria oliver in 1827, but nothing on kids with maria.

with nothing else to go on, my thought is thomas r and fannie might be william's son by maria, and after william/roberta died, they took care of niece lucy. all conjecture as i have nothing to show for it, but with all the kids documents having her as mcdonald, not mcdaniel, i am going with the thought that mcdonald was misspelled/misread/transcribed on her marriage document.
