RE: Perry Christison, Memorial 38083388
Hi Kent,

I'm sending you an email with the attached copy of the original Danish birth record for Peter Christensen. His actual birth name was "Peter Jeppesen". According to Danish tradition, the male sons were given for their surname their father's first name and then they added "sen" after it. So since Peter was the son of Jeppe, in Denmark he was known as Peter Jeppesen. But when the Danish came to America, many "Americanized" their last names to be the same as their father's last name. The female daughters were also named similar, except for having "sen" at the end of their father's name it had "datter." So his sisters would have had the last name of "Jeppedatter".

I'm also going to add his birth record to his memorial you created. So you should have an email from me with a copy of his birth record. Peter Christensen Jeppesen is also my ancestor. I decend from his daughter Mary Melvina Christensen who married Charles William Tolley. How are you descended fro Peter?

Perry Christison, Memorial 38083388
Hi Kent,

Thank you for creating my ancestor's memorial (Perry Christison) #38083388. I did find some incorrect information. Someone must have told you his birth date. The birth date that you have on his memorial is incorrect. I have a copy of his original birth record. "Perry" was his nickname. His real name was Peder Jepsen (This is the name he was known by in Denmark). His father's name was Jeppe Christensen. When Peder came to the United States, he "Americanized" his last name to Christensen - the same as his father's surname. That last name has also been seen as "Christison." His nickname was "Perry". According to the Danish Archives, his original birth record states the follwing:

5 January 1837, born on the Kison North Farm (Kison Norgaard) in Estrad, Ringkøbing, Midtjylland, Denmark. "Norgaard" means North Farm, and "Midtjylland" means Central Jutland. It states his parents as Jeppe Christensen and Karen Christensdatter. Jutland is the main land of Denmark. I would appreciate you making the change. I have a copy of his original birth record if you would like to see it.

Thanks!

RE: Yocum
I stumbled into the cemetery on my escapes to "The Land That Time Forgot" (the book is coming out in several years)on a hot summer day of July 2010. I was very touched by the story the cemetery told, the heart ache of three small children dead at the same age, half the internments of approximately 58 or so was infants below 3 and most buried prior to 1930. Confederate and Union soldiers within 30 feet of each other. I took some pictures and posted the one for the cemetery on Find A Grave with the Antelope Hills in the background. I corresponded with the people taking care of the isolated cemetery and my daughter prepared a CD of the graves and I was setting it to a background music to send them and too busy to finish the romance encaptured there. The following year they came in and cleaned up the graveyard, leaving the message board and replacing all the old concrete and stone or metal markers with graves with headstones. The older ones are in a pile I would like to see preserved as their is room there. Thanks for the interest. It seems that you relative is included as a small portion in one area of a regular larger plot, possibly family members. Dr. Fuchs.
