George Pearson, Rochester Cemetery
The Cemetery at Rochester has many overgrown burial spots with parts of broken tombstones.
Pearson markers could be in there. But not found when there some years ago. LEE

RE: Esther Cunningham photo
Hi Donna

Esther is my 4th. great grandmother. How are you related? The photo was sent to me several years ago by another of her ancestors. I'm just getting around to uploading some photos onto and find a grave.

Thanks for your message.

RE: James P Hadley line
Don't have any family stories at this time, sorry, wish I did. The website for the book is

If you select pdf on the right, once it's loaded the book, you can save it to your computer. It will take a while since the book is like 150MB or so. James P bio is on page 910 & 911 per the book pages and on page 908 is a portrait of him with his signature.

Or if you select at the bottom of the page under the ID Numbers and select the Internet Archive link, it will open a reader for you. Select the full screen and at the bottom of the page is a slider to fast forward to where you need and he's on pages 914 is the portrait and at the bottom of the 1st column on page 916 starts his bio. You can right click on these and 'save pictures as' and just save the pages you want.

Which of the James P children are you descended from?

Yes I'm getting 3 Ebenezers (actual 4 if you count James P's older brother) too. I'm a bit confused on who the middle Ebenezer's wife's name is....the bio says Elsie but other documents I've found says Jemima. I'll figure it out eventually. For the oldest Ebenezer I have, I found a document that lists his wife's last name as Abigail Spaulding. Got lucky on that one.

Hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have any trouble with the book.

James P Hadley line

I saw your post on another headstone (for James T., which is in the wrong place, he's in Shelby, Iowa) My name is Steve Duysen and James P Hadley is also my 3rd great grandfather which (according to a chart I have) makes us 4th cousins. I'm through his son James T. Hadley's line. I have found a couple of books on Livingston County that gives a bio of James P that is interesting. If you need anything on this line, let me know and I'll try to see what I can come up with. I'm currently working on the Hadley line for my genealogy.

RE: Jessie Campbell - Graceland Chicago
I found Jessie and Hugh. If I had been more diligent I would have seen this before. No dates on the stones. There are a Wallace, Jessica and Eliza Campell also, but again, no dates. Also some Campbell Rew stones next to them. Cheers, Bob

RE: Jane Paulk Pearson
Hi Donna,

Thank you for your quick response! It is nice to meet you via email.

Jane was my great, great, great grandmother on my mother's side.

I really appreciate the information. Do you have any other info on Jane McGuire, such as date of death, etc.

Take care,

RE: Jessie Campbell - Graceland Chicago
I do remember some Hempstead headstones (made of marble and weathered), but nothing as new as 1982. Cross your fingers, I will check this weekend. Let's see. If you want to know and photograph an unmarked site, they have a plot map that shows exactly where people are buried in the lot (grave # 1,2,3 etc.) They will send you a copy for $5.00. But I can ask and I think they will show me the spot if I can't find it on my own. Your info is a big help. Regards, Bob Lerch

Jane Paulk Pearson
Hi Donna,

I am new to this website.

I am a descendent of Jane Paulk Pearson. Do you have any information regarding her mother? Only her father is listed in the information I have seen.

Thank you.

RE: Jessie Campbell - Graceland Chicago
My mistake, note left at home. I will go back and take another look. There are more stones behind the monument. Sadly, two of them are not readable. I can ask the cemetery if there is/was a marker and exactly where she was buried. I added the photos to the other Jessie - Thanks for letting me. Bob Lerch
