Give all the thanks to Denise. A nice email thanking her would probably go along way.

She helped me so I could help you.
Amazing how God works!

RE: Maude Wells
I searched thru several newspapers
St.Paris News-Dispatch, Urbana Press and the St.Paris New Era.
I looked for the surnames Gibbs, Wells & Faulkner.
I could find nothing for her under any name from 1900 to 1910. Tragic about Laura. I did find the two articles about the incident

The only documentation I have is the cemetery lot record for section 1 lot 44
This lot is owned by Samuel & C.F. Gibbs.
There are several Gibbs buried in this lot. Laura is listed as Laura Gibbs(1903) on the lot record along with Joseph L Gibbs (1903) the next grave is Maud with no death date. This is the west side of the lot.

When I review the 2002 publication by Rick Burnside (who was the caretaker at the time) he has alpha listing as this:
Wells, Maude Gibbs death May-1895

I am contacting one of my aunts who has done alot of family history up there to see if she has anything on the Faulkner and Gibbs families.

RE: Maude Wells
Tomorrow I am going to go thru the different St. Paris Newspapers.
I going to look for the 1895 date and by the name Wells, Gibbs and Faulkner and see what I can find.

There has to be something on this person.
I did find in 1900 that Maud Wells was on the sick list in the St. Paris News-Dispatch

Maude Wells
I reviewed the 14-Mar-1877 birth date and this was a female born in Champaign Co OH to Noah Wells and Sarah Looker.

The 1900 census states she is a boarder living with Laura Gibbs--it doesnt say step daughter

This would give you the two Maude's you stated perviously, but I think the birth date on the is for the incorrect person.

I would contact the contributor and request her source for the birth date on the Evergreen cemetery. The date on the 1900 census also matches the month and year for the person you are researching. Something is not adding up. I have gone thru all of these cemeteries and I have 90 percent of the cemetery interment and lot records and I have searched and cannot find anything--YET. I love a good mystery and love solving this kind of stuff

OK, I'll take them next Sunday. I'll retake Guy's also as it looks kind of washed out to me, maybe because it was in the shade.

RE: Vernon Guy Myers
You're welcome. I had a list of 12 graves to find there, I only found 2. There were other Myers' graves by this grave, do you want those? I'm going back next Sunday. Just let me know.

You sent me an edit for Deborah Standley.
I have never seen the given name Demorest and I can't find anything for it at LDS sites or other sites. Please send your source for this change. Stanley or Standley were often used by this group but I will continue to use Standley for her since her husband used that spelling. Are you related to this family ? If so, please let me know how since I am always interested and could share with you, etc. thanks, Werner Stanley
