Morgan Buck 1823-1864
Ruthy Martha Matilda's last name is Hart? Where did you find this info? Also do you know who her parents are? I did not know she married Joseph Chandler after Morgan died in a POW camp. I did know that she received his pension. Please contact me at Morgan was my great-great grandfather. To my knowledge, Ruthy was buried in Arkansas. Do you know the cemetery Ruthy is buried in? Thanks for any help. Morgan Buck is on Find A Grave.

I've been looking for you on!
My Aunt Sue Cravy has been doing geneology research for years. I only started a family tree a few years ago. I've been learning about my mom's mothers side of the family. Her name is Clara Belle Smith-Cravy. James L. Smith is my 4th great grand uncle.

Hope to hear from you-

RE: Beulah Frances Bennett Goodwin Sayward
Thanks for the link....I thought she might be with her 2nd husband, and they added her info on the monument of the first husband, although most Catholics are buried with the first husband. Regards, Suki

Bone family in ElK Cemetery McArthur Ohio
I was at Elk Cemetery in McArthur Ohio the other day and I have added photos for the Bone family as Duddie Henderson Bone is on my husbands line. There is a stone for George & Duddie, Jacob & Elizabeth & Samuel W & Ella May.

I would like to ask your permission to use the photo of George & Duddie on my family tree.

Re: Henry Maney
Per your question in the Suggest-A-Correction message for Henry Maney, I don't have any additional information about his father or his family beyond what is in his Bio (and that of his sister in the same cemetery). Good luck in your searches!
