Bio and Links
Bio Photo The family surnames being researched and added at present are Nailen, Stokesbury, Clark, Osborn, Gordon, Eagen, Free, Kerr, Bogue, and Young.

If anyone has any photographs of family members, and/or headstones, please forward these to me so that they can be added to the memorials.

The need is greatest for family member photographs for the Nailen and Osborn family members of the following people at present--

William R. Free, Myrtle Free, Mae Marsh Cleveland, Winifred Wheeler Nailen, Frances Northedge Nailen, Napoleon Bonaparte Nailen, Anna Baughman Stokesbury, Phoebe Painter Stokesberry, James Madison Stokesberry, and any painting or illustration that might exist for Robert Stokesbury.

I am in need of photographs of Anthony Osborn, Frank Johnson Osborn, John Walter Osborn Sr., Ritchea Osborn, Ruth Carney Osborn,and Sarah Osborn.

Photographs are also need for Alice Eagen, William Eagen, Frank Davidson Gordon, Mary Josephine Gordon.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide me.

Thank you.

RE: Elizabeth Liz Osborn
I finally transferred this memorial to you. My maiden name is Osborn. I remember setting this memorial up for someone who asked me to but after much checking, I don't remember who I did it for so I don't see any reason not to give it to you. Where there are so many Osborns out there and the line is large, I'm sure we will cross paths again.

RE: Joshua and Mary Blocher Clark
Do you have any information on the daughter of Joshua Clark and Mary Blocher named Sarah? I really think that she was my ancestor.

I have ggggrandparents named Joshua Allen and Sarah Clark. They were from Ohio and moved to the Wayne/Lucas area of Iowa. In Iowa they had several land transaction with David B Clark who was a son of Joshua Clark and Mary Blocher. That's why I've always thought that there was a connection between Sarah Clark Allen and David B Clark. The Findagrave entry for Mary Blocher Ryun mention a daughter named Sarah so I'm hoping that she was my ancestor.

Joshua and Mary Blocher Clark
You're listed as a contributor to the family information on the memorial for Mary Blocker Ryun who was buried in Wayne Co, Iowa. Do you have any information on the daughter named Sarah? I believe that my ggggrandmother, Sarah Clark, the wife of Joshua Allen was that daughter.

James Stokesbury Thorpe
I have a photo of Olive Isabel Trew, the wife of James, if you are interested. Her sister Jessie was my great grand aunt. I would like to know why James changed his surname and when he came to British Coulmbia, if possible.

RE: photo caption--I actually added the photo to this memorial as well as the one the other memorial in existence for John Stokesberry (Stokesbury). I received a copy of this photo from my great uncle Richard Nailen. Elizabeth Ann Stokesbury was my great, great grandmother. I also added her photograph to her memorial as well. The copy of her photo was also received by me from Richard Nailen.

John Stokesberry
Helen, thank you for the updated info...I will change the memorial...I was searching for my Bybees when I found this out of the way cemetery and there were several stones there that were difficult to read but I took pictures and created the memorials. Are you a descendant of John?

I have added a photograph that I have of John Stokesberry. I have the dates of 4 Sep 1818 for his birth and 12 May 1867 for his death.

If you look at the headstone, it looks as if the stone is chipped which is making the 7 look like a 2. It doesn't seem to match up with the other two. His marriage date is 29 October 1840.

This is the information that I have from my great uncle Dick Nailen who does quite a bit of geneological work on various families.

RE: A big thank you...
You are welcome. I notice yopu have other Osborns at All Souls. If you call them 562-424-8601 and get the locations, I will get the photos. Post the locations at my e-mail address. . That stone today had on contrast and is difficult to read standing right over it. It is in a large, flat area with no statues or trees. Glad you are happy. cb
