we started out about 5-6 years ago to find my Ward grandparents in Missouri, and from there we find geneology and grave searching fun. We have decided to honor those who have gone before us by photographing an entire cemetery when we can. This has proved interesting and satisfying. Unfortunately some people are not careful about posting duplicate memorials which has made a fun project more difficult. Please check before posting a memorial! please feel free to use our photo with credit to us for there use
RE: Marg-+ret Miller Haner #98994093 I have transferred Margaret to you so you can make corrections and edit bio. I had always wondered why we had a grave stone photo but did not know where it was. Thanks for the clarification.
RE: Francis Bird On Ft Knox there is also a Bird Cemetery, but there are no identifiable headstones in it. I have some photos of the Bird Family that lived South of Burcham Cemetery. If you would like them I can send them to you. I work for Ft Knox and consider myself a history of Ft Knox efficianad. Email: Arlin.firstname.lastname@example.org If you like
Bethuel Sawyer 118175352 Great photo of the Sgt Bethuel headstone. Thank you very much for that. The second photo, Bethuel b. 1904 is someone else I'll create a new memorial for that stone. Thanks again.
RE: Walter A Wilson, Here is what I have found so far. In 1920 he lived in Jefferson Twp. Green Co., Ohio. In 1930 Wilson Twp. Clinton Co., Ohio. In 1940 Wilmington Clinton Co., Ohio. Here are some of their children: Thomas, Ethel, Verona, Andrew, Margaret M., and Arthur D. I don't know if any of them sound familiar to you or not. Let me know if one of them sounds familiar and I can do some further checking on that one.
RE: Edmund Hurlbutt I forgot. There was an Edmund Hurlbutt who died in Eureka, CA. 59181749. There was another one who stayed in Dalton, NH. And the one who went to Marshalltown, IA where he died. Probably others.
RE: Edmund Hurlbutt Hi, good to hear from you. That was a good find. I am particularly interested in finding out more about what happened to Nathaniel Hurlbutt, son of Alba, brother of Edmund, I think. He went to the Gold Rush with David Cook and died in 1849 or before March 1850. I have a few sketchy details of that in which I had a lucky, unexpected find, much as yours, but I want to know where he died, the date, where buried, etc.
I would appreciate knowing anything I wouldn't have as those were all close. I did quite a bit of research in Marshalltown and have some obits and burial places of most of the ones there. They had some misfortune with typhus.
There is no cause of death for Levi Hubbard Hurlbutt and Willard Osgood; both died young; Willard is buried in West Truro Cemetery, not sure if Levi Hubbard is or not.
I also have a nice photo of Edmund. Unfortunately the scan is on my other computer that is not functional. I know the photo is here someplace but I'd be hard put to find it right now.
When my grandfather was putting a new house on his place he sought advice from Edmund about design, materials and building. Edmund wrote a letter about it; I have that somewhere. Also have a card Jennie Penny wrote from Marshaltown on a visit. The branches of the family kept in touch. I'd be hard put to find those, too, as papers everywhere. Regards, hope you are well.
