Bio and Links
Bio Photo Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: Ethel Bowser 26863936
Thanks for the quick response. The note I got was==Not Accurate-Their data conflicts with my data. Just wondered what you had that conflicted.

Ethel Bowser 26863936
Wondering why you declined my request to add the maiden name of DeFriese to Ethel Bowser 26863936. In her daughter (Jeannette Bowser Van Dyke) recent obit, it list DeFriese as her mother's maiden name. Do you have different information than the obit?

RE: Joseph F. Brewster
Yes...the obit came from a scrapbook at Berne, Indiana library...not sure of the paper, and there was no date on the page. Thanks for adding it!

RE: Cora Bell Ketchum 8262081
#38855604, Cora Belle Ketchum born in 1898 is not my Mother. My Mother is Cora Bell Ketchum Trial born 10-4-24, died 9-6-00. She was married to Valentine Joseph Trial. They are both buried at St. Mary's Cemetery in Somerset, Bexar County, Tx.

Can you please let me know who to contact as I would like to have her linked to my grandparents. Is this something I can do?

Thank you for your assistance.

Buckmaster & Wilson
Thank you for replying so quickly and additionally, for sending the info on Sylva's 2nd husband. I went back and searched through my records and was able to clear up most of my confusion. In looking at my census reports, I saw that Albert Tilden Wilson was 25 and living with his mother and 5 siblings in Cooke Co, Texas. It shows Arthur and Carl D. as being 3 and 2 yoa. I then looked at the 1910 census which shows Albert to be married to Sylva in Hewitt, Carter Co., Oklahoma. It clearly shows Arthur and Carl as his sons and they are 13 and 11. Sylva is only 24 so common sense tells me she would be too young to be their mother. Went back again to the 1900 census and this time I caught the fact that Albert was widowed in 1900. That explained it all. Now I just have to figure out who Albert's first wive was. Albert's father had just died the year before which explains why he and all of his siblings were still living at home, helping her with the farm. This is how mistakes happen! I thank you for helping me catch it!!

Wilson & Buckmaster

I see from your bio that you have done research on the Buckmaster line. I am related to Sylva Latilla Buckmaster's husband, Albert Tilden Wilson (#19819877). They had five children but I was recently told that the two oldest are possibly Sylva's step-children. Do you have any info supporting this?! Would love to hear from you!
