the Polkinghorns
Donna,
Thanks for the e-mail regarding the Polkinghorns. I am not related but photographed the tombstone because it was a unique name. I originally used others' trees to come up with Eliza Polkinghorn's maiden name as Bands. I did a little more digging today and found her Illinois death certificate on Ancestry.com and it says her father's name was Bands. I also found her son Edward's death certificate on Ancestry.com and it says his mother's name was Eliza Banks. So, there are now three names in the running--Bands, Banks, and Bond. It's going to take someone from the family with direct knowledge to straighten this one out. Thanks for the interesting input, though.

P.S. My Civil War veteran virtual cemeteries are pretty much set up for my contributions to creating or maintaining GAR or CSA memorials. So, while I'd like to add your guy, I've had nothing to do with him. If I can add something down the road, then I'll add him to my virtual cemeteries. It is a shame, though, that his name is wrong on his marker. I'm going to file his name away until I can meet up with a guy who specializes in ordering new GAR replacement markers and I'll see what he has to say on this issue. Continued success with your tree and keep up the good work on Findagrave.com.

Robert M. Sizelove, Sr.
Bernhardt family
Would like to thank you for posting all the family association burial data for my grandmother, Elizabeth Mae (Guest) Sizelove-Bernhardt's, second husband, Antone Bernhardt. They resided in Nevada City, CA. I have been searching for more genealogy on him for some time. I was pleased to see he served our country in two World Wars. I knew him as Tony. Kindest regards. Robert Sizelove, Sr.

I do not have any information that would indicate that the children died in a blizzard. It would be interesting to know if that were the case though.

RE: John Abraham
Thank you for the transfer, I will be sure to take great care of the Memorial you have created. I will ask around the family to find out if anyone knows where the cobbler shop once stood, Maybe my Grandfather knows. If I find out you will be the first to know. Thank you again.

RE: Nevada County Hospital Cemetery
I have a list extending through to the Lewis Road cemetery, but no one seems to be quite sure what year they moved over to Lewis Road. The Cem Dist office seems to be quite sure that by 1923 they were using just Lewis Road.

I have an acquaintance at the library who is going to take both the Findagrave list and my list, and see what she can do in regards to the spellings. The Cem Dist said the book was quite spidery writing, easily misread? Until I send my comparison lists in, I thought it would be best to leave all the names as is, and wait for their results? So you live in the NC or GV area?
