Hibbetts Photo
Thank you for the photo of the Hibbett's stone. It is much appreciated.

Also, since the stone on the memorial of John Swihart (#119343454) is incorrect. Do you mind deleting the picture you took from the memorial?

There is another memorial for "Unknown Swihart" that I am sending a request to update to Joseph Swihart with the information you gave me.

Thank you for all of your help.

Re: Floyd & Sarah Cullison
Hi, part of the orbit for Floyd was not correct. Floyd was born in Indiana, died in Indiana and was buried in Illinois. Orbit said wife Sarah was also buried in Indiana. She was also buried in Palestine, Illinois. Thank You for your help getting this corrected. I have removed the photo request.

John & Mary (Mikesell) Swihart

You took a photo of John Swihart's grave at Gospel Hill cemetery. I am not sure if his wife is buried next to him or not. If you have the cemetery records are you able to easily identify if she is buried there? Mary (Mikesell) Swihart was born Jan. 6, 1819, but I do not have her date of death. You were able to John's stone, even though it appears as though it is not legible. So I'm thinking you identified by the cemetery plots.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Bertha Cook FAG # 85142651

I'll do another SAC. Here's what happened ... I found Otis K. Cook, the first husband of Bessie Vera Polk. Actually Bessie and Otis were married twice (1908 and 1928) and were twice divorced (1927 and 1935). When I found Otis K. Cook, Find A Grave # 85142597 and his wife Bertha Cook, Find A Grave # 85142651, I assumed (now this is where I went wrong, I shouldn't have assumed) it was Bessie. Bessie Vera Polk Cook then married Henry Sanford Pletcher after her second divorce from Otis. And Otis married Bertha Prescott Grimes.

I totally apologize for the confusion. Please forgive me. And if you can forgive me, I can get another SAC to connect Bessie once I find where she is.

Bertha Cook # 85142651

I've made a drastic mistake. Bertha Cook who married Otis K. Cook, is his second wife. Which means Bertha is NOT the daughter of John H and Cora (Evans) Polk.

Forgive me for troubling you. In the words of Rosanna Dan Danna ... oops.

Honoring those who have gone before.

Stafford photo
I didn't mean to make you delete, I was just curious. I hope I didn't offend you-not intentional!! Thank you for considering getting all Stafford photos. I have been to Spring Creek Cemetery several times, I have MANY ancestors there--Stafford, Circle, Snell, to mention a few. Thanks for being a volunteer.
