Hi Richard, Thanks for the information on my Caruthers family. It definitely helps. Just for your information, not all of Joseph's descendants are in Sumter County, Florida. I'm his 3rd great granddaughter and besides myself my sons and my brother live in Volusia County, Florida. His 2nd great grandson Charles lives in Citrus, others live in Pasco Counties and still others moved the roots back to Georgia living in LaGrange, Eatonville, and Cohutta. All but the ones in Georgia are gator fans. Unfortunately, their bulldogs. lol And thanks for your service to our country.
While the first and third photos on that page are indeed of Kittrell Confederate Cemetery, the one in the middle is of Kittrell Cemetery and it does not belong on this page but on the one for Kittrell Cemetery. The two cemeteries butt up against each other but they are two different cemeteries. You could certainly add that photo to the Kittrell Cemetery but it shouldn't be up on the page for the Confederate Cemetery.
Thanks for considering the removal of this photo that doesn't belong here. All the best.
Bierer Cemetery, Millville, IA Thank you so much for posting these grave site markers! I've been searching for Julia Ann Torrey Kinney Bierer for years in my genealogy research. She was my great-great grandmother's sister. Between using Ancestry and Find a grave, I finally know what happened to her. You have helped solve a family mystery.
Headstone photo Hi, Rick. Hope you are doing well. Can you please take a look at this memorial for Chas. Eldredge at Bay Pines: 3969143. The 2nd-headstone-photo-down was posted by you but I think you posted it to the wrong Charles Eldredge. (The memorial is for Charles W. but you posted a picture of Charles G.'s headstone). I happened to stumble upon this memorial today when trying to go back to Charles G's for which I just posted a headstone photo today in response to a photo-request. Can you please delete the misplaced photo? Thanks! (And thanks for all your contributions to FindAGrave!) Sincerely, John
Death of A. C. Fulton. A. C. Fulton died Monday morning, October 1, at 8:00 o’clock at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ollie Funk, 709 Freeman Ave., Kansas City, Mo. The funeral service was held Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 o’clock at Jullen’s Chapel, a short service being coducted by Rev. S. F. Riepma, and burial was made in the Olathe cemetery. Mr. Fulton was 77 years of age, having been born August 21, 1840, on a farm near Massillon, Ohio. When he was about 21 years of age, the family moved to another state, his mother died and he returned to Bucyrus, Ohio, to live with an Uncle and learn the trade of plow making, in which he served an apprenticeship of three years, developing into an expert maker of plows. When the war broke out he was one of the first to enlist in Company A, 34th Indiana Infantry and was made a Corporal at once. He served his time, then re-enlisted, and was mustered out at the end of the war as lieutenant. He then went to Hartford City, Ind., and in 1867 was married to Miss Carrie Tancinbaugh and in 1874 came to Olathe, which has been the family home until the death of Mrs. Fulton, January 1st last, when he went to Kansas City to make his home with his adopted daughter, who had lived with him since she was nine months old. Mrs. H. N. Hackett of Olathe is the only near relative living. She is a sister. Mr. Fulton was a Presbyterian and was a member of the G. A. R. in which he always took a lively interest. The value of such a life as his cannot be estimated. Possessed of a sterling character he wrought mightily in his day and generation. He was not great in the sense that the world accords greatness, but was great in that he did well those small duties of which the busy life is composed. He was a man of high personal character and such as he always leaves a wholesome influence upon the community in which he has lived.
