RE: Geo. W. Nethercutt birthdate
Yes I do but there is a lot of misinformation in there.

RE: Birthdate wrong for Geo. W. Nethercutt
I checked the 1900 census and it also says June 1929.

RE: Birthdate wrong for Geo. W. Nethercutt
You know, I had them as twins until I received this obit. Can you think of any other way we can verify this??

Duplicate entry in Rockville Cemetery
I am not the original poster. I was simply pointing out that you posted the duplicate long after the first. If there is erroneous info in the original (like the birth date) Find A Grave guidelines suggest using the Edit function to correct it. If the original poster does not accept the changes, you can challenge it with the website management. As far as photo credit goes, I believe you can also send a challenge to have it taken down (after first asking) and then add it yourself with the credit. I certainly do not condone stealing photos and have absolutely reported it to those in charge when it had happened to me (and got the memorial management turned over to me!)

No, have no idea who it is. I will just leave my entry since I have no idea who sent it to me. Kay

RE: photo; George Ives King
You are so welcome. I found this old book at the local university library and thought it would be fun to add the pictures to findagrave. There was a biography on him as well. Would you like a copy of that as well?

RE: Veterans Home Cemetery, Napa, CA
My darling friend, Betty Patterson, who is a Find A Grave volunteer, wrote me this and I hope it helps. Worthene is not at the Veteran's CemetPer Find-a-grave:


Worthene C. Smith [wife of John D]


Birth: Sep., 1847
Decatur
Macon County
Illinois, USA
Death: May 18, 1939
California, USA

Worthene C. was the daughter of the [in?]famous New Mexico Federal Judge Kirby Benedict and his wife Charlotte Curtis Benedict. This is the Judge from 1850s Illinois who, by Presidential appointment, was given the position of Federal Judge over the territory of New Mexico. When folks wrote A. Lincoln, 1860s, asking for Kirby's removal from the post, citing his love for alcohol and cards as a reason, Abe replied similar to this: I travelled the Illinois circuit with Kirby; and, Kirby Benedict drunk knows more law than all of you sober. It was several more years before these folks were able to find help in putting Kirby away. Worthene was also the niece of Decatur, Illinois' beloved physician: Dr. Ira Curtis.

Spouse:
James D Smith (1845 - 1932)*

RE: toland
The whole obituary and story is on a site that has a lot of obits out of greenwood
mr. toland and her daughter were in london ohio when this happened so I have copied and pasted the two articles

MRS. A. TOLAND AT HOME - This morning Col. P.W. Taylor, who went to Ohio with the remains of Mr. A. Toland, returned by the five o'clock train, accompanied by Mrs. Toland, her daughter, and two brothers of Mr. Toland, from Ohio, and the party proceeded at once to Latham. The letter left by Mr. Toland for his wife gave as a reason for killing himself the fact that he had violated a pledge which he had made to her to quit drinking, and preferred death to the humiliation of meeting her. The letter also gave some directions about his business affairs, and directed that all his property should go to the benefit of his wife and daughter, and expressed satisfaction in being able to feel that there was enough to carry them through life comfortably. The letter makes so allusion whatever to any financial embarrassment, and so far as is now known there was none. Col. Taylor informed our reporter that the tidings of the sad affair overwhelmed Mrs. Toland and her daughter with grief, and that the scene on the arrival of the body was heart-rending.
Decatur Weekly Republican, 28 Feb 1878

Mrs. Toland is at present visiting her husband's mother and other relatives, at London, Ohio, and the news of her terrible bereavement was telegraphed her this afternoon. She will have the warmest sympathies of all our people in her great sorrow.
same newspaper but diff date 2/21/1878

I have call adam in greenwood to see if he can tell exactly who is buried in the plot but I missed him if you want to call 2174226563
