Violett (Lynus) Hill
Just noticed your message to Find-a-Grave member Robert Hill regarding Violett not listed in the DAR index.

You might try looking under Captain Thomas Hill, her son, who served in the 102nd VA Militia.

Not being a DAR member, I am unable to look it up for you. Thomas' memorial is 48305868.

RE: Eliza Jane Terry Palmer
The information that I have on the Terry family is from some research that a Palmer cousin paid to have done about 15 years ago. The 1850 census report for Yalobusha County, MS (which later became Calhoun County) lists the W.C. (55 yrs) and Melinda (45 yrs) Terry family immediately after the J.H. (34 yrs) and Eliza (29 yrs; ne้ Terry) Palmer family. The oldest Terry child living at home at that time was Matthew (20 yrs). I don't have the 1840 census report, but since Eliza's oldest child is 9 yrs in 1850, the 1840 report might place her at home with the Terrys at that time.

RE: Eliza Jane Terry Palmer
It has been a long time since I looked at this. I do know that the information on her parents and siblings didn't come from an online source. I will see what my files can generate. While not definative, it is interesting that J.H. and Eliza Jane Palmer had a son they named Matthew Covington.

I am answering your direct question about the grave of Alice which you posed to me:

Are you sure that Alice Iva Hedrick Eblen is buried at the Fowler Cemetery, in Fowler, CA? I went to the cemetery and spoke with the person in charge. He was unable to locate any listing for her [Gennut]

My response states that my information is based upon what her daughter Geraldine Mason told me over the phone during a long distance call before her death. For sure Alice is buried in Fowler, and apparently I have the wrong cemetery. Alice's grand-daughter does not answer queries of any kind, so there is no way I can locate the correct cemetery.

That is what I had understood from comments made by her daughter on the telephone a few months before she got sick and passed away. But given the strain on her memory at that point, I could understand if there was a miscommunication on some detail or other. She used to visit graves at Fowler, and at Selma as well, in Fresno County. Her mother lived in Selma, California. Until I am able to locate where she actually is buried, I will prefer to leave the mistake, since I am certain that she is actually buried, and not cremated. One of her descendants will let me know if they find the mistake, since they are cousins.

RE: Elanda Fisk Gaw
I would be happy to go look for her. I'm not a descendant of the Gaw or the Fisk line. Just a guy that likes to spend time in cemeteries and on the find-a-grave site. If I can be of any further help in this area just let me know.

By the way the are people in this area that spell Fisk-Fiske. I ran across some of my kin that spelled Rich--Riche,Reach and a lot of other ways.

Thomas Hood in Hood Cem, Blount Co, Alabama
I found he was in the wrong cem. and someone just listed him recently in the Blue Springs aka New Lebanon Cem. I'm sure if you transferred him to the correct cem they would probably delete their acct and upload the pic to your acct, per Find A Grave rules. So glad this request was able to be filled after so many years (2009). Their acct is

RE: Nancy Schutz Fisk
Thank you so much for the information. What a facinating family story. Love it when there is more than one source particularly in the retelling of a story passed down from generation to generation.

I am a volunteer researcher currently doing research for a guy who I believe to be a 3rd Gr Grandson of Moses and Nancy Schultz Fisk on his Mom's side. I was originally asked to research his paternal side and picking up maternal family info along the way. I don't know as yet if he knows a much about his maternal family history or not. I'll ask him about that and see if he's ever heard the Moses/Nancy story.

I'd be glad to share any new Nancy Schultz info I may find with you. I suspect that you and the guy I'm doing the research for are likely cousins so I'd appreciate it if you would contact me at so we can discuss that possibility and share further information.

Thanks again,
