RE: William Thompson
My pleasure! I'm glad I can help. And howdy, neighbor! I'm right near Oakbourne and the railroad myself, as it should happen.

As for the Hickmans, I'm closing in on them. It turns out the Bradford records list five of them only as being reinterred in 1974; the rest are "missing" but we know who did the moving, so it won't be long now.

I'll be transferring over the Thompsons to you this evening.

Thanks again for finding the Hickmans---you've really helped solve a decades old mystery!

RE: William Thompson

I've processed the edits on William Thompson, and have transferred management of his memorial to you. If you should like, to expedite processing his siblings and other relations in the Orthodox Cemetery, I will transfer them all to your custody so that you may add the information at your leisure.

I'm very happy that you have found your relations in that cemetery! It makes me glad I took the time out to document it all.

William Maxton
Thank you Melissa, for the transfer of William. I think I just found another son of his, George H. Maxton (1882 - 1941) buried in Virginia with two other children of William.

I appreciate you finding and adding some of the missing Maxton's!

Thank you very much for taking the photos I requested for Charles Hiddleson, Sidney Alexander, Alice Hiddleson, Thomas Alexander and John Alexander. It is by efforts such as yours that Find A Grave has become a successful site.

I appreciate your help.

RE: Jacob Ludwick & Mary (Hipple) Ludwick
Hi Melissa
Going back over Jacob Ludwick and Mary and I believe it was John Ludwick who put in a request for the tombstone photos and not me. (That's ok they are fantastic and the fact that they are still there.) I see John Ludwick still has a request in for Phoebe.
John Ludwick added the pictures of Jacob and Mary from the Historical Society the same day you added the tombstone. I wrote him and told him my thought on the pictures.
Thanks Karen

RE: Jacob Ludwick & Mary (Hipple) Ludwick
Thanks Melissa
I haven't looked at Jacob and Mary Hipple for a while. My line is their daughter Phoebe Ludwick Moses.
I have a copy of the picture from the Chester Historical Society.
A few years ago I came across a catalog about the pictures that the Historical Society had. Under the picture of Jacob and Mary they decided theses couldn't be Rev War era pictures from their dress and I believe they are Tin types.
The Jacob pictures does look just like a cousin of mine.
Maybe you could check that out.
I'll try to get back to the Ludwick. I guess I hadn't look at it because my Uncle gave me so much on them. He did research to to prove descendant for Son of Revolutionary War.
Thanks Karen

William Turner

Added his death Certificate. Birth date garbled, but doesn't look like 17 to me. Age listed is 72 years 0 mos 4 days... that math doesn't jive either. Good luck with that.

I made the link you requested.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Ann Hickman
THANK YOU!!! I have been trying to find out to where the Hickmans were moved for quite some time, and you've just solved that! Outstanding thing you've done there!

The "F H" stone to which you refer is indeed someone's initials--- Francis Hickman, also once buried at the Hickman Burial Ground. If you could add that image to his memorial that would be fantastic.

I suspect the rest of the Hickmans are there too, only their stones are still buried. I will go and poke around (literally) to see if they are there.

Again, thank you so much for your great work!
