Thank you
Thanks, anyway. I thought Memorial# 81512949 might be his dad.

I saw you left a flower in his wife's memorial, so thought you might know--was James H. Gowdey a Civil War vet? If so, did he muster in from Illinois? I am trying to link memorials. Thank you!

Family relations
Hi, My name is Beth Evans, and we are related through the Benson line. Polly Benson Mozena and her husband Joseph Mozena are my third great grandparents. Will be happy to swap information on our lines. But I have another question. Your Smeltzer/Smelser line, does any of it cross paths in the DC/Maryland/Virginia region? My stepfather has Smeltzer/Smelsers in his ancestral line. Just curious on whether my mom and stepfather's lines intersect. Thanks.

Hello John

According to the Gone But Not Forgotten Atchison County, Missouri Cemetery Book published in 1990.

Louisa Eaton Seymor had a stone.
We were in the Beck Cemetery yesterday and were unable to find her stone.

But this is the information the cemetery book had on her.

Louise Eaton Seymour Smelser
born 1806 NH
died October 20, 1888
age 81 years 8 months 19 days
1st husband John R. Symour
2nd husband John Smelser

Her stone inscription

"Dear mother, when time shall have ended
Its years and its vanities gone
May we meet thee by angels attended
To welcome eternity's dawn"
