RE: Memorial 55985919
Thank you so much for this information. I have been hunting for information about Eva Stump for decades and kept hitting a brick wall. Do you have any information that confirms where she is buried? Records that I have come across say that she is buried in South Cemetery at Greens Fork, IN, but there are no cemetery records or tombstone there to confirm that.

"There is no daughter by the name of Clara who married a Kerns."

I had notes in my software program that indicated that she probably wasn't their daughter. Thanks for confirming it.

"Willetta's death date is 27 April 1905 according to her death certificate."

Thanks! The date information I had for her came from one of her descendants.

"Eva Stump Mullen is my great aunt, sister to my great grandfather, George E. Stump. Eva who was born in Darke Co., OH was the daughter of John Stump and his wife Elizabeth Etter."

That is so awesome!!! I'm so glad to finally know more about Eva. I knew a lady in Greens Fork who used to visit Eva when she was a child. Her grandmother and Eva were friends. I was going to interview her once I completed a project for a cemetery in the area, but she passed away just days before I finished the project.

I recently came across someone in the Richmond, IN area that has the maiden name of Stump, but I don't know if there is a family connection or not. Her name is Janet (Stump) Bostick. Do you happen to have any information on who she might belong to?

Additionally, I am a Cook family descendant. What is you Cook family line?

Henry Cook
I am researching the family of Henry Cook of Chester County, Pennsylvania. Henry Cook married Catherine--I have seen her maiden name as Fouch but it may be Pfoutz.
If you would like to compare notes, please contact me:

Hi Karen...tombstone photo "echoed" on this one, so one of them needs to be removed.

RE: Harry F. Lambert

In the future if you can send the correction via the EDIT feature on the memorial it would be great, i usually do no make the correction going to public message board way, that is what the Edit Button is for is those type additions.

I made a exception this time though

RE: George Stump
Hi Karen, George and Susan were my great great grandparents. And I am the great granddaughter of Russel. My grandpa, whom is still alive, is one of Russel and Zora Belle sons. If you have any other pictures of Russel, his siblings, or of George and Susan that you would be willing to share that would be wonderful. Thank you so much. :)

George E Stump family portrait
I was wondering if you have the original portrait or any other pictures of anyone in this portrait. I would like to be able to get a copy of this picture without the "writing" on it to give to my grandpa, as George and Susan were his grandparents.
