Sidney Horn 24575918 Hello Michael, I've been researching Sidney Horn's family and have learned that when she died her legal name was Johnston. Her first husband, Amos Swart died in the service during the Civil War. Her second husband was George W. Moninger and her third was James Johnston. Both Mr. Moninger and Mr. Johnston died before Sidney did. I have a copy of Sidney's death record if you'd care to have it for your records. Thanks very much! Best regards, Steve
Robert Simpson Memorial Hello Michael, Unfortunately, when they merged your memorial for Robert Simpson (1797-1875), they left him in the wrong cemetery. The large stone in Oak Spring Cemetery appears to be only a cenotaph.
Fortunately, someone found his actual tombstone in the right cemetery; please see 142898304. Linda
Mary Dewell Being she married Greg Peck she is in the same Dewell lineage as James (John) Dudley Dewell. His wife, Mary Keyes is buried there. You have come across a very historical family. JJD was a Lt. Govenor, Director of many firms, Vice President of a bank, the list goes on.
Mary Dewell Hi, Michael! You have her being buried At Evergreen in New Haven. John D. Dewell was a relative and he managed Evergreen back in 1900. I assumed he was buried there. Is there any way you can verify this?
