I have taken dates and other information from death certificates which often have errors, so if you have a correction or comment please contact me using the edit tab. If you find I have made a duplicate memorial, please let me know - we should all take care that we do not make duplicate memorials. I am happy to transfer a memorial to you if it is within Find-a-Grave guidelines, or if the person is not my ancestor or a person closely related to my ancestor.
#36686810 John Hudson This is a duplicate memorial - #7802875 was creataed by v brown Aug. 28, 2003 when she created the ond for his wife. The problem is the spelling of the last name. She used the other spelling Hutson as the primary spelling in her page. And her memprial #7803008 for Emeline was linked to yours in error.
RE: Lizzie Brown Smith She may be listed as born 1844 on her death certificate, by whoever survived her. But she is listed as age 8 in 1850 and as 18 in the 1860 census, which is much closer to the actual event, and reported by people who were there. I tend to give more credibility to data closer to the time of the event, and sources with more direct knowledge. That is my reason for suggesting that her birth was most likely in 1842. An example close to home is my wife's grandmother, whose funeral we attended. When I later visited her grave, they had carved the wrong year on her headstone. You can certainly post whichever data you choose, Dave
James Earl Jewell in ME Hi Jean, I noticed you left a flag on the memorial for my great uncle Jim Jewell several years ago. I also saw your Jewell virtual cemetery but they are all from Ohio and my Jewell's are from PA. Are you related to James Earl Jewell who died in Bangor, ME? I am looking to reconnect with his family. Hope to hear from you. Thanks.
Yes, I thought it was interesting, as well. It was quite by accident that I ran across a book called "Vigilante Woman", it has stories of a half dozen women who lived and worked in the area of Bannock and Virginia City, MT (or Idaho Territory) during 1863/64, when robbery and murder was at it's peak and the formation of the Montana Vigilante's. Very interesting reading.
Thanks for contacting me. I hope you enjoy your new home in Montana. I had an opportunity to visit Glacier National Park. Really BEAUTIFUL country.
