Sarah M McGaha Ktchens
Thanks for letting me know of the correct cemetery where Sarah was buried. I corrected the cemetery, but will transferred Sarah to you, Maybe you will be able to link the children to her.
Thanks again Duane, you are always so very kind and helpful.

RE: Help to, sswjr
Thanks Duane for all of your help and accepting all the Edits I sent. I'm glad Find A Grave added this feature, for it sure helps in not having to type so much information, and this way it is done automatic.
I don't know if I can help sswjr or not, see what I can find. All I have to go by is what is on a tombstone.
Thanks again, you are always so kind and helpful.

Aaron Wilson
Aaron Wilson, husband of Matilda Hogsed and father of David Wilson, etc. did not die in 1899. He, Matilda, David, and the grand daughter of Aaron and Matilda, Bessie Wilson (daughter of Henry Martin Wilson and Pink Wilson) are listed in the 1900 Federal Census of Dunn's Rock,Sheet 1A,line family and household number 8. Aaron died sometime between 1900 and 1910 and was buried in the "Aaron Wilson Burial Plot", location uncertain. If the headstone inscribed A. L. Wilson was intended to be for Aaron Wilson, husband of Matilda Hogsed, it was placed at a much later date by someone unaware that he lived beyond June 1, 1900. Also, in over 20 years of doing genealogical research on the Wilson family I have never seen a middle initial for Aaron.

Joel Smith
Hi Duane,
I accidently deleted your request for the photo of Joel Smith at Calumet Park Cemetery, Merrillville, IN., I was trying to leave you a message and I accidently deleted the request.

I have searched the public records for this cemetery and I do not find a Joel Smith. Do you have any other information? There are may Smiths listed but not a Joel G.

I will be more than happy to continue helping with this request.

Also sent you a private e-mail.
