David Milton Dugherty
Good afternoon Mr. Jenkins. David Milton Dougherty is my 2nd great grandfather. When visiting his grave last November, I wrote down an inscription that is on the stone but difficult to see in the photo I added. The inscription reads:

"The golden gates were opened wide
A gentle voice said come
And angels from the other side
Welcomed our loved one home."

I thought you might be want to add this to the memorial page.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

William and Louhana Jenkins
Hello, we may be distant cousins. I am a descendant of William and Louhana through their son Thomas. I saw their memorial #11671053, but it is very difficult to read the lettering. If you live near this site to take another picture, or if you have a transcription, it would be very helpful. Thanks very much

Harnden Genealogy
Hello I found you on Find A Grave, researching Rev Adolphus Benjamin Harnden, who I believe to be my 3rd great grandfather. My great, great grandmother is Permelia, born 1840. For quite some time, I have known nothing about her, except that she is buried in Linwood Cemetery in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, by her husband Lewis Snyder and her daughter, Olive Snyder (and her family). The name on Permelia's headstone is simply "Permelia". No reference of her maiden name is on the stone, in cemetery records, obituary, or on her death certificate (she died in 1890).

I believe I have pretty solid circumstantial evidence that she is the same Permelia that I find on various Harden trees and genealogies as follows:

I have found various Harnden genealogies that list Permelia and that she married an "unknown Snyder."
Permelia and Lewis Snyder are in the 1860 census in Blacklick Township, Cambria County, PA. One of the questions asked in the 1860 census is "if married in the last year." For both Permelia and Lewis, this box is checked. Permelia was 19 years of age at this time.
I queried the 1850 US census for Pennsylvania, for first name Permelia only. I got two hits. One of those I immediately ruled out (can't remember exactly why), but the second one was for Permelia Harnden, age 10, with Adolphus and Elizabeth as parents, and siblings, John, Mary & Margaret.
In the 1860 census mentioned above, Lewis & Permelia are on the same census page as the Harnden's, with the children John, Mary, Margaret, Adam & Martha.
By 1870, many of this family had moved to Iowa. Lewis & Permelia are in the 1870 Iowa census. Adolphus & Elizabeth are still in Pennsylvania in the 1870 census, but by the time of Feb. 1871, Adolphus is in Iowa, where he passed away.

I am wondering if you have any information on Permelia, in particular something that would give evidence that this is the same Permelia that is a child of Adolphus and Elizabeth. I'm also interested in information on any of the Harnden's, as I don't restrict my tree to direct lines only.

I'd appreciate any information you have and am willing to share anything I have that is of interest to you.

I am hoping to find information regarding my grandmother's side which is Jenkins. Her father was Vernie Augustas Jenkins, His father was Charles Blackburn Jenkins and Charles' father was John D. Jenkins, but that is as far as I can go and hoping for some help. I am wiling to share any information I have to help.
Thank you in advance.

Perpetual Care
Do you know who is in charge of Mt. Ararat now? My mother passed away last year and I found a list of the families who had paid for Perpetual Care there, it was very old.
