You asked me to link Mathew (86452076) to his father Samuel (126251995) but there is only a 4 year age difference between the two of them.

Thank you Mr. Kasper for the links added to the Despain memorials. Your help is appreciated.
|Barbara Stein||RE: Robert Young-78861171|
Thank you for your help.
|Barbara Stein||Elmer Young|
I am a findagrave enthusiast and I have an obituary for an Elmer Young who was born 31 Aug 1882 in Christian Co. IL to Robert and Mary Clement Young. I want to link him to his parents, but the Robert Young buried in Christian Co, Il was married to a Nancy Clement Young. I noticed that you put a Civil War document on Robert's site and was hoping that you were a descendant and could clarify this for me. Thank you.
|Kay Baldwin||RE: Pvt Moon|
You are most welcome!!
|Penny Christman||William A Downs|
William A. Downs was my 3rd great-grandfather; his daughter, Margaret Emiline Downs, married Jasper Newlin. One of their daughters was Cora Ellen Newlin -- she married Robert Franklin Trimble (my great-grandparents). Would you consider transferring this memorial to me please? The number is: 16391657. My number is: 47098909.

|Jane Gerrish Waddell||RE: ILL CW Vets|
Here is another vet to add to your virtual cemetery, #68012488. He never saw any action, as he died of typhoid just 3 months after enlisting and just 6 days after his 18th b'day. The earliest dated military document shows he died of typhoid, the next of pneumonia and finally at the end of the war in 1865 a muster out sheet from Little Rock says he died of measles at Camp Butler in 1861. Therefore he probably died of thyphoid complicated by pneumonia.
My dad and I had his CW stone placed about 20-25 years ago.
|Jane Gerrish Waddell||Thanks for Transfer|
Hello Russell -
Thanks for transfering my college roommate's mother's memorial to me. Your kindness is much appreciated.
I'm always commenting on what a small world we live in. Right after finding Mrs. Murray's memorial which you created - in north-central Illinois, I was searching for memorials of my extended family and found that you had placed a picture of Albert A. Shepard on his memorial #93329071 in southern Ill. He descends from my 3rd great-grand aunt, Eliza Jane [Joanna] (Gerrish) Shepard. Are you related to the Shepard family? I assume most people-photos are posted by family.
|Kathy Phelan||Henry Swisher|
This is my great-great grandfather. Where did you find this picture? I didn't know anyone had any info on the Swishers other than my great grandmother and her twin brother.
