RE: William Brown
Thanks for your prompt reply, Steven, I appreciate it and do understand about older research! If I find the connection speed, perhaps I'll be in touch and just remove some of the connections, which are probably now disproved. Thanks too for creating this memorial, do you have a connection?

William is my oldest Brown ancestor to America.

James Allen "Jim" Rogers
Hugh Whitlow
Thank you for the additional death date information for Hugh Whitlow. If you are a close relation, I would be glad to transfer the memorial (and related ones) to you. My late father-in-law was touched by the words on Hugh's mother's headstone, "Think what a wife should be, She was that." Unfortunately I don't know if he ever had a photo of the marker. He must clearly have visited the site at some time.

Fred E. Conrad 133764723
Steve, don't know if you remember me, but I met you years ago at the Crecelius reunion with Charlotte Davis. I am working on a problem I hope you will solve. I know about the Conrad Crecelius couple that migrated to Iowa from Harrison County, Indiana. Your memorials to them on Find A Grave are excellent. What I want to know is how Fred Conrad is related to Mahala and her husband. Would he be a grandson? I would like to know how he fits in. He was the first husband of Sadie Deschamp, also of Harrison Co., IN. He died. She eventually married a second time to a Sam Kessler, but I know nothing of him and almost as little on Fred Conrad. Do you know when and where Sadie and Fred Married? Do you have a complete date of birth and death for him? Anything? Would Sadie be buried in Grundy or Conrad cemetery? Hope you get to come down to this neck of the woods again. Old Scott Township and also Cold Friday are on Facebook.

Haddox & Blankenship
Thanks for the updates! I've added them to their memorials. I'm married to Jenifer Haddox whose grandfather Gerald Hopkins Haddox was a brother of Hattie Victoria Haddox Blankenship. Hattie V.'s grandfather was William Henry Hopkins 1838-1911. His Civil War photo was chosen for the brochure for the Iowa 175th anniversary of the Civil War. See his memorial on findagrave in Odebolt Cemetery in Sac Co., IA.

If you have any additional info, photos or Hopkins, Haddox or Blankenship folks currently alive and willing to e-mail us and share info, please send them my address. Thanks so much!

Corrected the cemetery and think I transferred it to you. Got an error message.

Thank You Steven
Thanks for adding my Mom's record. With your permission I would like to sponsor this record. I noticed in the "calculated relationship" that one of Mom's brothers is referred to as "Ralph". This is incorrect. His name was Raphael. I tried to correct it but the record indicated a change is pending & if I understood it, it looked like maybe you had already caught the error... again, thanks. Warmest Regards, Brent
