CORRECTIONS AND TRANSFERS
I welcome all corrections, and with a few exceptions, I am happy to transfer any of the random memorials I have created - on to those who have a relationship, or historical interest. My ancestors, family, friends, local memorials, and special history interests, I do maintain in my care.

The correct location is the Red Bluff Memorial Chapel Mausoleum. I have added a photo of the niche wall where they are buried to their memorials. The wall stands outside the front doors of the mausoleum. The mausoleum is located just inside the gates to Oak Hill Cemetery but has no connection to the cemetery.

|KsCityKim||RE: Florentina Elizabeth Queen|
There is a photo on my memorial already. If you find out they're related, let me know. I've worked on the family a bit and have requested links to some of her kids and linked her to her husband Charles who you have. (His DC shows his middle name as Thobin rather than Tobin, but I've not found anything but "T" including an obituary) You might check back in a couple of days/weeks to see the links. I did find connection to a F/G contributor - one of her daughters married his uncle so he may want her too. lol Thanks! Kim

Thank you for your very kind words. I love helping other people, and I am willing to transfer almost any memorial if I believe the other Find A Grave member can add more information; the memorial does not have to bed in the members direct line.
Thank you for taking the time to drop me a note.
|JoyColeღ||Coffee in Heaven|
There is most definitely coffee in Heaven. I can see dad and Beansie happily raising their cups for seconds as mom passes by with the percolator. I remember so many parties with my parent's friends drinking coffee and eating Italian pastries from the bakery. All the ladies (wearing red lipstick) complaining about their waistlines and the men reaching for seconds and thirds. Wouldn't it be nice to think they can still enjoy each other.
There has to be a happy ending, I can't believe otherwise for our wonderful parents.

|Sam Andrusko||RE: Margaret Landis/have requested obit. to be posted|
Oh gee, thanks for a quick response and your research efforts. Just checked Find A Grave for Joseph and Margaret I and see you've already made the links, so all I can do is thank you! And especially thanks for the obits of William and Margaret.
I noticed Rosy's obit also appears in the Myersdale Library Special Collections Project. If you got it from there, I wonder again if whoever typed up the obit from there made a mistake. It says the obit possibly came from the Meyersdale Republican.
Obit do have errors. Was annoyed with my half-sister when she gave the wrong maiden name for our grandmother's mother when she (grandmother) died. And this was only in the 1990s, so ... people do make mistakes. Also wonder whether Magdalena (instead of Margaret) is wrong or just a middle name. She's Margaret or Maggie in the census records I've seen.
Anyway, thank you so much for your efforts. Perhaps in Rosy's entry you can simply note that the obituary is incorrect; that she was the daughter of Joseph Landis, not Peter. Otherwise, it looks as though you've made the mistake, not the obit.
|John Pearse||RE: Good to see you here!|
Thanks, Georgia. I've really started to get into the genealogy thing in the last year or so. Fortunately, you and Becky and others have done a lot of finding and posting on find-a-grave so all I have to do is follow along.
|Larry Van Dyke||Amanda Wingate|
I've searched for Amanda but cannot come up with anything. Could she have gone by another name? I only found one other person in the Haseville cemetery with the Wingate name. I know the person who keeps the records for the Haseville cemetery so I need to see if I can get a copy of them. It is not infrequent that a person is buried and there is no tombstone. Most of my records are based on a canvas of the cemetery and reading the tombstones and newspaper articles. I can give you a list of the Wingates I have in my file for Linn County but that is about all that I can do at this point.
Yes, I was at the Haseville cemetery a year or so ago and need to go back. At least some of the Gooch's in the cemetery are related to me. I was born about 1/2 mile from that cemetery. The Gooch's all came from Virginia but we haven't determined if they go back to the same person yet. Some say no, but I'm not convinced yet. Otherwise how did both lines end up in the same area at the same time.
|Larry Van Dyke||Gooch Cemetery|
Yes, I was able to get the article. That was article had some more information that I had not seen in some of the other similar articles but as I have studied the history of Linn County it is not surprising. If you look at the pictures of the cemetery today it is in bad need of work on both sides. I've gone in and cut grass and sprouts and have worked on some of the fallen trees and I'm hoping to get them all out this year and get the cemetery to where it can be mowed and you can get to all the tombstones. I had to crawl under a fallen tree to get pictures of one a few years ago.
Thanks for your information. Every little piece is helping put the puzzle together. Don DeWitt from New York and I are working to get the Gooch family connected as much as possible.
