Frank Passic, Albion Historian
RE: E. Floyd Hoaglin
His obit is lengthy, but is mostly about his service to Albion as Mayor and in community events and clubs. It states that "he was born in Albion oct 5, 1873 the son of Frederick & Mary Hoaglin." Nothing about any spouse or descendants except it says "several cousins survive." and that "for 26 years he shared his home with Mr. and Mrs. David Swathwood."

I just double checked on Illinois Deaths & Stillbirths, and it also says 1933.

I can double check the stone if you'd like, but it's going to be a while before I'm up there again.

RE: Hoagland
Dorothy, I'm glad you corresponded. Don't give up hope! Nancy's burial records are confused and there are several memorials for her in two cemeteries. Here is the scoop as I see it.

My research shows that Nancy Hunter "Hoagland" actually should be Nancy Hunter Hoaglan, wife of Nathaniel D. Hoaglan, and they are buried in Evergreen Cemetery in the Town of Ledyard. Multiple sources use the spelling Hoaglan, which I believe is correct. Nancy and Nathaniel appear in the Cayuga Co. NYGenWeb cemetery list for Evergreen under the name Hoaglan (see

It puzzles me that Nancy is also listed in the Cayuga Co. NYGenWeb cemetery list for Scipio Rural as "no marker" but spelled "Hoagland"(see

Maybe Nancy was moved from Scipio Rural to Evergreen at some point because Nathaniel didn't die until 1924 and was buried in Evergreen.

Both "Abby" and "Butterfly~Kisses" have memorials for Nancy Hunter Hoaglan/Hoagland. See Memorial# 105706568, Memorial# 88290626, and Memorial# 106252055, all for Nancy.

I've pointed out the duplications and surname spelling problems to "Abby" and "Butterfly~Kisses" but don't know if there will be any clarification/consolidation. In the meantime, I suggest that you post a new photo request for Nancy on the Evergreen Cemetery Find A Grave site, maybe under both spellings. It will be next summer before I can get to Evergreen myself. I couldn't find an obit for Nancy but have one for Nathaniel as follows.

"Death of Nathaniel Hoaglan - Nathaniel Hoaglan, a highly respected resident of this village, died at the Auburn City Hospital Tuesday morning, Dec. 7th, aged 83 years. He had been a patient at the hospital for several months, having been in ill health since he suffered a stroke about a year ago. Mr. Hoaglan was born in Varick, N. Y. Eight years ago he moved from Levanna to this village where he bought a home on Homer street that he might be able to attend the G. A. R. meetings. He was a veteran of the Civil War, a member of the Presbyterian church and also a member of the Masonic Fraternity. He is survived by four sisters: Mrs. Kate Mallory of Buffalo, Mrs. Jane Rolfe, Mrs. Harriet Hasbrook [Hasbrouk], and Miss Anna Hoaglan, all of Levanna. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church at Scipioville this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock and burial [was in?] Evergreen cemetery, Scipioville, with Masonic services."

Leo O. Harkness
My cousin put the picture of Leo O. Harkness in the memorial. I found in 1930 Census Missouri that shows Dorothy L. Harkness, the daughter, age 8.

Yes I do have a picture of Leo O. Harkness in his WWI uniform. I'm sorry I don't have pictures of Ruth and their daughter, Dorothy.

RE: Leo O. Harkness (1896-1941)
Hello Dorothy--
I have information that I took from Leo's obit. Here it is: Leo O. Harkness worked as a switchman in the Houston ,TX train terminal (Missouri Pacific Railway) for 3 months when he suddenly felt ill and died. He worked for many years for Cotton Belt Railway before he went to MO. Pacific Railway (worked as a clerk for Cotton Belt R. R..------
He was married to Mary Lewis Boyd and had a son, Leo Charles Harkness (1926-1988). I think I may have a picture of him, I would have to look it up.
I knew he was married to his 1st wife, Ruth McBride, but didn't know they had a daughter, Dorothy. If you have info on her, I would like to have it. Will let you know about the picture. Thank you for adding the info on his memorial.

I've just now sent a couple of automated update requests for her, but I wanted to let you know that she was a Conlee when she married Richard Wood, but she the widow of John H. Conlee (1771-1816). Her brother John B. Hodson (c.1774-1842) is my 4th-great-grandfather. Thanks for your assistance.

Thank you for the memorial page of Leo O. Hakness. He was my grandmother's brother. I would like to ask you if you can add this to Leo's memorial page: Leo O. Harkness was in WWI for Arkansas Corp 114 AM in 39th Division, served overseas from 1918 through 1919. Thank you.
