Iona Gamble

Your Iona Gamble was my grandmother's (Beulah P. Sloan #137102904) beloved sister. You have her attached to a repeat memorial that I have complained to findagrave about and is scheduled for deletion. Can you transfer Iona to me, so I can give her a respectful home? Thank you.

Parents for Amanda Fitzland Houk, Houck
I wonder if Amanda's parents are John Merlin Houk, Houck [Howk, Hawk] 1785-1856 and Dorcas Elkin
1788 – 1830. Do you have other verification?

Zook Family
Hi Wilma. I was wondering your connection to the Zook family in Iowa. I cannot find you in my family tree. Earl and Eva Zook are my grandparents and their descendants are of course related to me. I was hoping you would consider a transfer of the Zook memorials to me. I am deeply engaged in our family history and I see much work to be done on the memorials. Your consideration is appreciated.

Annette Ashbaugh
Hello, Mrs. Becker. I just wanted to extend a thank you for the information that you have listed for my family, the Ashbaugh's. I would say that all the calculated relationships are correct. In fact, you can also add my father's posting (Wallace Eugene Ashbaugh) and my aunt (Dorothy C. Ashbaugh). There are only two more aunts that are remaining (Klee Randolph and Genevieve Fellowes).

Again, Thank you for your work and hope you continue to do a wonderful job.

Cornelison and Dockerty
Thank you for your postings for Mellozen Ann (Dockerty), my Grand Aunt, whose father John O. DOckerty is my Great Grandfather through his son Archie born in 1915 (Denver) and John's second, possibly third, wife Minne Victoria Mathis.

Might you have other personal photographs available in your files of the Dockerty's. I have to ask, leaving no stone unturned... Thank you ;-D

Sarah Cornelison Kesler
Did you know there is another person buried beside Sarah and her parents? Cemetery records show L. Kessler [sic) with the same grave number as Sarah, i.e. Section 08, lot 077, grave 3. The record does not show a date of death; however, the burial number for L. (#2670) is in sequence with Sarah (#2671). Did Sarah perhaps die in childbirth? The record shows this additional burial is unmarked. Also, if you are interested in the Kesler family, there are two more Kesler graves in this section (i.e. 08) and located perhaps 50 yards away - Catherine (d. 1925) and Stephen Kesler (d. 1917). I will create memorials for them so you can review the information taken from the cemetery burial record. I do not know the family and am not related, just a volunteer.

Nellie Bellamy
Dear Wilma;
I am the Great granddaughter of the Jennie Elizabeth Bellamy Hall. Her granddaughter Joyce Bergman was the person you wrote to in October of 1977. Asking about Nellie Bellamy.
My aunt Joyce sent me that letter, and a Mahon family genealogy book written in 1945! In it it shows the lineage of Jennie and Nellie(her younger sister) all the way back to the Mahons.
There may be answers to your questions there.
I may be able to help with any other questions, too.
Please let me know.
I am currently doing our family history,and came across you and had a shock when I realized you were the lady who wrote Aunt Joyce years ago.
Would love to hear from you.
Thank you Dianne, daughter of Alyce Pritzkau.

Memorial# 55244596
Thanks so much for all your work! It makes my research so much easier.
I wonder where you got the birth date for Mamie Odessa Hanks Scott or if it was just a typo that the day and month are also her death date making her die on her birthday.
The 1900 census has her birthday as Jun 1891. Which one is correct, do you know?
Thanks again. I really appreciate your diligent efforts!
