This is my GG grandfather. His number is: #106409738. I would like to have the maintenance of his memorial transferred to me, so that I can add several links to it, if that is okay with you. Thanks in advance! Otherwise, let me know if you want to keep it and I'll send the information to link others. Thanks!

RE: Minnie Sigler
I went today to find and photo Minnie and Jefferson's stones. There is no record of them being buried in Maple Grove cemetery other than what is on the death record that has several errors. Unfortunately there is only one set of records that survives for the burials at Maple Grove and they are from 1941 and seem to be that several people got together and walked around writing down the names and area. While not being a huge graveyard, it is fairly good in size. I may over the next few months or so walk row by row to see if I can get a detailed map and list of those buried in the cemetery. While I was looking for Minnie I also looked for her husband Jefferson, he is also not listed. None of this is saying that is not where they are buried just that they may be two unfortunates who's memory has been lost.

RE: Minnie Sigler
Thank you for getting back to me. I agree with you that someone must have made a mistake either in giving the information or in transcription. I found a copy of Minnie and Jefferson's marriage record. That shows her as being 20 yrs old. I was looking into Millie's father's service record and I am trying to locate a map of the battle that he was taken prisoner during to give an idea of where he was captured. At first, I was trying to figure out how he was able to get Minnie's mother pregnant with Minnie. Then I realized that his unit was stationed in Clarksburg from around the beginning of June 1864 until sometime before the 24th of July 1864. So it seems that he may have been captured without ever knowing that he was going to be a father. If you do not happen to have this information and are interested in having it let me know. Thanks again for the speedy reply and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Minnie Sigler
Hello, my name is Andrew Bragg and I was doing some research for a friend of mine on his family. Minnie Sigler is his 2nd great grandmother. The question that I have is, on the death record that I was able to find that was filed in 1904 it show that her age at time of death was 48. For her to be 48 yrs of age in 1903 she would have had to have been born abt 1855. Your records for her are showing that she was born in 1865. My question I guess is what were your sources for her dob and her parent's names? I just like to verify information before I go and make a change in what I have found, but I do know that there are many transcription errors and it being a full year after her death that it was transcribed leaves room for error. Thank you.

My pleasure.

Oakdale Cemetery is a great place to walk around and take in the history.

Enjoy your weekend!

Permelia Elizabeth Patterson Andrew
Hi. I am looking for a photo of a servant who worked for John and Permelia for a number of years. Her name was Elizabeth M. Byers. She was listed as a servant in 1910 and 1920, staying with John after Permelia passed in 1918.I was also curious who Leona Byers was, who also was listed as a servant. Thanks You!

I made the links for Donovan Barker. If you would like me to transfer him and his wife to you I would be happy to do so.
