Cordelia Spafford
I tend to agree with you concerning Cordelia E. Spafford 1829-1866. But there must be two of them, since the Cordelia Spafford I list as Orleans daughter must exsist also. She was born 17 Jan 1824 and died 15 Mar 1897. She married Samuel Warren 1805-1882 on 11 Mar 1846 in Louisa Co, IA as listed on the Louisa Co, IA Genweb. Samuel and Cordelia were both listed in the 1850 Census for Louisa Co, IA, Wapello Twp also. This Cordelia named her forth child Orlean Warren, born 1859 in Iowa. Why wouldn't she name him Lorenzo if he was her father? I will keep my information listed as recorded and if we find out more, I will contact you to share it. If you don't mind I would like you to do the same. Respectfully, Johnny Purdue

Keturah Williams obit vs tombstone
I have noted your comment on Keturah Williams' Find A Grave memorial. Thank you for calling this to my attention. Would love to have a copy of the obituary for Keturah that appeared in The Cortland Observer on 31 May 1826. None of my newspaper databases carry that paper.

Do you live in the Cortland/Homer area?
Do you ever venture out to Atwater Cemetery? The photos of the Ambrose Williams tombstone that I took many years ago is so dark that the inscription is totally illegible. I would love a digital image with flash or suitable lighting so that the obelisk and the engraving is readable. Ambrose was my first Patriot in the DAR. My grandmother was a Williams descended from him.

Also, I think that Seth Shaw's tombstone is either at Glenwood Cemetery or at Atwater. I have visited these cemeteries several times to visit my ancestor's graves, but never took a photo of Seth's stone. His wife was one of Ambrose's daughters. Keep an eye out for old Seth and his wife if you are wandering around these places.

Charles / Sarah Devoe

I went to the cemetery and checked the monument for the Devoes. It has Jeremiah, Elizabeth, Charles, Edmund H., & William H. on the monument. There are 2 footstones, one says "Mother", the other "Father." There is a base of a stone, no bigger than the base of the footstones, but the upright part is gone.

I could send you photos if you give me your email address.

Another avenue I would suggest is to see if Sarah is listed in the cemetery transcript at the Cortland Historical Society. I might be able to do that for you. They might look it up for you if you gave them a call. I had success there recently, when I found relatives of my husband in the transcript. The markers in the cemetery were like footstones, with a first initial plus the last name on the top, and "Father" and "Mother" on the sides. (Their names were not included in the online transcript.)

Charles DeVoe
I did some poking around, and found his wife's name on the 1875 NY Census, and the 1880 US Census as "Sarah."

I found an article in the Homer Republican of a death notice for "George Woy of Pomona, Cal., who in 1900 married Mrs. Sarah Devoe, formerly of Homer, for his second wife." He died in 1906, and since she was relatively still a young woman, she may have married a third time.

Do you have any idea what his wife's first name was? It is quite possible that she remarried since he was only 38 when he died.

I may be able to get to the cemetery this weekend and have a look.

Robert Darwin Ray
I'm going to fill your photo request. The stone clearly states that it is Robert Darwin. You mentioned in your request note that you hoped it would have "Darwin" and not "Diocletian", and that you hoped that the year of death would be shown for his wife, Francis. The complete DOB and DOD are on her memorial already. I've added photos for Francis, and: Prosser, Roberta, Robert D., Ella Jane, Rowan and Cora.
Would "Diocletian" be the middle name of Robert D. (1861-1930)?
Also, with the same likeness of stones, and in the same line as Robert Darwin, wife and children, are the stones of RAY QUISENBERRY and ANNA RAY QUISENBERRY ROOT. I've made memorials for them. Is Anna possibly another child of Robert Darwin and Francis? One clue I've found is that Miss Ray Quisenberry was the informant on Cora Ray's DC. Ray could possibly be Anna's daughter.

I would be happy to take a photo of Martin Housel's stone at Crown Hill Cemetery but I need the section #. Please call Crown Hill 330-425-8128 for the information and forward to me.

RE: re: Mildred C. Lingenfelter Housel
Thanks for the transfer. Next time I get to Altoona I'll check the obit for a definite burial location. But it does make sense being buried in AZ with her husband. My cousin created the memorials for Mildred's family (Lingenfelter) so that's probably why she didn't find Mildred.
Thanks again.

Mildred C. Lingenfelter Housel
I see now that there are 2 memorials for Mildred. I would think Findagrave could send out a notification when a duplicate memorial is being created. I created it because she was a sister of my aunt, Hazel Grace. I was going through, and updating, my Family Tree albums and saw that Hazel's pages (created 8/2012) did not have any family info on it. I reread her obit and saw Mildred's name on it and I ended up creating the memorial. As stated on my memorial I placed her in the cemetery in Hollidaysburg PA because all her family are buried there (except Hazel-she's near Cape Cod). After I found the Social Sec. Death Index for Mildred I noticed she last lived in AZ. I also found that there is an obit for Mildred at the Altoona, PA public library. Not to sound cheap but I didn't feel like paying $5 to have them copy and send it to me. I was going to go to the library and get a copy of the obit the next time I went to Altoona (my hometown). Since you have her buried in AZ. that makes more sense, based on the Death Index. How did you find out that she was buried in Glendale, AZ? (Just curious). If you have an obit from AZ I won't need to get one. Since you created your memorial before me, I can have mine deleted.
