Infant son DeBey
Barbara, can you tell me if this infant son DeBey has a gravestone or not? On the right of
George and Evelyn by a few spaces there is a stone that just says Infant son 1909 ( which is wrong date) and there is a space between George and Evelyn and George Harris to the left that is unmarked. Do you or how could I find out more about this infant son DeBey. Thank you for any information. Sherry

RE: Losey
Yeah, it sounds like 2 different people now, but at first, the names were close, and the death dates were close, thought it might be the same person, Thank you!

I just noticed your helpful memorials for Robert and Barbara Jones DORRAH (I'd had DARRAH, plus had confusing places for her.)

Do you happen to be family to them, too? I'm tracking her genealogy, on my husband's side (He descends from Barbara's sister Martha.) I'm looking to track down, better, the origins and adoption of their father McMillen/Jones and to locate her grandfather Henry Masters in Greene County, PA. Or, just more detail on the nuclear family's household back in WV.

Reach me directly at

Adella Bowen Hamer

I researched Adella Bowen Hamer (68670256) and find she was married to a William Hamer, but not the William Hamer (135404964) who was married to my great aunt. Would it be possible to undo the link that says they were married? Thank you

RE: Emma Donn
That is a stumper

The first two children were twins.

2 boys Allison (i know it is strange) and Alvin.

I have Alvin dieing in 1878 no middle name he had Typhoid

Allison Franklin Donn I think lived to b e 1926 but i don't have any proof just a lot of possibilities

I have this copy of a newspaper article that someone posted on Ancestry I am not sure which twin it goes to. oops i can't post it here but this is what it says.
Ally Donn
January 7, 1880
Kerwin Chief Newspaper
Allison Donn, was seriously injured last Tues by the bursting of a gun. he had on cleaned up the gun & loaded it, and on shooting the same, the gun bursted and the breach pin was forced from the place, striking Ally on the left side of his forehead breaking the skull through which a portion of the brain was oozing when the doctor arrived.He is hoping for a complete recovery"

Sorry that is all i have

RE: Emma Donn
Good Morning Barbara

Emma was 8 years old I found this information of a Biography of her sister Lillie Donn (my Great Grandmother) the biography was written by Lillie's son Thomas Moody Adams.

Here is the paragraph it came from.

'In 1877 when I was six and sister Emma was eight, she died of Scarlet fever. That was the same year a baby brother was born and died in infancy. Sickness continued to hover over our family. On the 18th day of August, 1878, my father died after a long fight with typhoid fever. He was 36 years at the time of his death. Tears followed tears. September 1 of the same year, my oldest brotherís, a twin (Alvin) died of the same dreaded disease. Alvin was 17. Four family deaths in two years was a blow that a few families ever had to endure."

I hope this helps to name the graves.

Oh by the way Lillie' parents were Alexander and Mary Donn. Her Paternal grandparents were Peter and Phoebe Donn.

Sandy McAdon Fantino

P.S. one of Lillie's daughters Mary Ellen Donn McAdon was my grandmother, her second son was my father Bernard McAdon
