New Hoy Family Member: I would Love for you to Visit my new memorial for John "Doc" Hoy and leave a floral tribute. I found his very sad story in an Omaha Newspaper from April 1899. I have no idea what Hoy family he actually belongs to, but have adopted him to mine, nevertheless.

Thank You,

RE: Re: Your email message
Thanks for posting your pictures. I now have a better idea of where you found Mr. Starks plot. The next time I am at the cemetery I will check again to see if there is a marker.

I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our soldiers that had ties to Vt. J.W. Brush is one such soldier. May I use the photo that you contributed to his Find A Grave memorial page, to post on the Vt. C.W. site( or other soldiers photo's that are credited to you, and tie to Vt?
You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

We just keep plugging along. Thanks for processing those edits in Lafayette cemetery.
I received a message from a contributor over on who was working on the Hauptman's and doing a lot of good clean-up there.
My Grt-grandmother, Anna Marie Fass Rockemann, married Ernest Hauptmann in 1955. Ernest and Arthur are brothers, but I didn't expect to find Arthur buried in Lafayette where my Green's are. In some ways my ancestor world is getting smaller.
Hope you are well.

Hi Kathy,
Thank you for sharing your website! Amazing stuff! I have come across it before, but never could make the connection. But now I am really concerned that your Minerva and my Minerva are not the same. The Dates on our Daniels are different. And.....I found Minerva J. on two different 1860 censuses. One living with the Hoy family and one living with David Wolf and his family.

I need to really study this and right now just don't have the time. We are about to go out of town.

I will look at this more closely when I get back and I am sure I will have lots of quetions.

I will be in touch!

Hoy Family
Hi Kathy,
Would love to discuss the Hoy family with you. Daniel Hoy and Molly Flick are my 4th great grandparents. I descend from their daughter Minerva. I appreciate all the valuable information you have up on your memorials. VERY helpful! Would love to complete it with Minerva's information!

Hope to hear from you,
