Brave heroes and heroines!
Their graves shall yet be found,
And monuments shall mark their dust,
As sacred earth and ground."

I am wondering if you are contected to the Wohlenhaus family. If you are please contact me. I would like to verify that is Fern Wohlenhaus that taught in Bloomington Minnesota School in the 60's and 70's. If she is I have a picture I would love to submit of her last year teaching in 1971. She was was my 4th grade teacher.

Gaffney
Hi, Cathy, it's me again,hoping this msg finds you well. I have a "knot" on my tree and think you might know about it. In Leslie McLaughlin's Our Book of Finley's and their Kinfolk Families, on page 311 there is mention of a Hannah Wierman who might or might not have been married to our Edward Gaffney. I cobbled her onto my line and lo and behold, if I have actually the right person, she is the mother-in-law of Dolly Madison.......who was previously married to a Todd, an atty from Philly. (I think).

Could you please go my tree and take a peek. Not sure how to contact you on Ancestry.com so chose this venue.
Susan McLaughlin (sister of Leslie the author)

Charles "Oscar" Wilkins
Is Charles your ancestor? If so I wonder if you have any additional information on the family. My great grandfather was an adopted child of Thomas and Cynthia Welbourn of Anita Iowa. Alva died young and under tragic circumstances. There is a newspaper article that states he was the son of Oscar Wilkens, and that he came to live with the Welbourn's at the age of three. I am trying to connect Alva with his biological parents as well.

Henry Travis Maynard
Hi,
I was just reading your memorial page for Henry. My great-great grandfather was Henry's brother, Abraham, buried in Hampshire, IL. I was wondering if you have any info on their parents, Isaiah & Esther (Travis) Maynard. Another contributor sent me a link for an Esther Travis Maynard buried in Orth Cemetery, Boone County, IL. I was unaware that either of the parents came to Il. but I guess this is possible as I read that Henry lived in Belvidere for a time. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks, Melanie Howe

RE: I greatly appreciate your help!
I also added the description to the Cemetery page itself. It was based on some of the notes you have on his memorial. If you want more added, let me know.

Duplicate memorial in "Crutchfield Cemetery" has been eliminated. Duplicate photos have occurred from the merger so might need removing.

Effie Voorus in Ferncliff Cemetery
I recently filled a photo request for Effie and saw that her sister's (Keziah)memorial mentioned another sister in Springfield, Ohio. It stated that she was married to a D. L. Adelsperger. I did find several Adelspergers in the cemetery and went ahead and photographed them as well.

I don't know if they are connected to your individuals or if you are interested in this information. They are located in the Ferncliff cemetery in Springfield:

Sec P lot 115
Dow Adelsperger d1923
Neal Adelsperger d1918
Theresa Adelsperger d1940
