|Brooke Harlowe||RE: David S Abbott|
Yes. I did a sloppy job on those findagrave dates. Sometimes my head and fingers are not in synch. Your name is familiar. Did I look up some of Peter Kelts' kids for you? Way back when we had to do research on microfilm?
|Brooke Harlowe||David S Abbott|
Thanks for the correction to David's death date. I was reading from the (worn) date on the stone, rather than checking my own records....a careless mistake. Are you related to Helen
(Abbott) Gilson? I descend from Mary Emily (Thurber) Abbott's brother, William.
I guess that kind of makes us cousins. Vilinda Starkey and Daniel Moore were my 3rd great grandparents on my mother's side. There are a lot of stones that I haven't got on here yet and I haven't had the time to correct and put information on everyones memorial page. I work more on building my tree on ancestry so if you see anything that you would like me to fix please feel free to let me know and I'll do it asap. A lot of the information I already have. Like on Enos Amos, I had it in my ancestry file but I made a mistake when I put it in on here. I prolly was doing it when I was half asleep. I love working on genealogy! I work on it all the time.

You are correct! Thank you. I also found on ancestry a Wilma Agnes Hupp that was married to Flak Martin. But born in Monroe County, West Virginia abt 1909 and her parents as William and Sarah Hupp. Their marriage date was 7 Jul 1927 in Harrison County, WV. It has to be the same person, right? I'm thinking it is. Maybe there is a mistake on her birth somewhere. I wish I could find her death record. I also found a Wilma Anges Moore that married a Pete Minoroff in 1930 but no parents was listed. That is all of the leads that I have.

War Veteran's Grave Moved with Honors
Posted: Tue 3:00 AM, Mar 24, 2009
A Civil War veteran whose grave was moved to make way for coal mining has been reburied at Bethel Cemetery near Osage. The remains of Job Lawlis were honored Sunday with a flag-folding ceremony and gun salute by VFW Post 9916. Descendant Clarence "Buddy" Lawlis arranged the event for his great-great-uncle, who died in 1907. Job Lawlis and 20 others were originally buried in a rural cemetery near Cassville United Methodist Church. But a judge approved Patriot Mining Co.'s request to move the remains so it could get to an estimated 7,000 tons of coal underneath.Patriot argued that with buffer zone and blasting laws, it would have lost up to 100,000 tons of coal worth at least $5 million if the graves hadn't been moved.
