Hello Have A Heart,

We had communicated about our ancestor: Austin Bearse through 'Find A Grave' previously. May I refer your attention to the Revised Memorial for which I transferred Management very recently

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=114850609

As you see our cousin Cathy Truesdale #47667802 is the new person in control of it. You might want to read over the revised page and if needed communicate with her about any recommendations. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Ken Kelly

Even & Anna Mikkelson
There are many Mikkelsons in the Six Mile Grove Cemetary. None of which match your dates. There are SEVERAL Even Mikkelson/Mekkelson's and none of them have your date as matching - I did upload the Mikkelsen photos that I took. I was there yesterday with my husband and we didn't find matches to your request. It is a cemetary with many OLD, OLD gravestones.

William H. Speers
Hello,

I have a memorial page for a William Harlan Speers that you had provided some information on, while suggesting that the family information be verified. A family member contacted me regarding this William H. Speers.

There are two William H. Speers, both of whom resided in Hardin County at one time. The other William Hale Speers, born the same year, is buried in Iowa Falls, Hardin County, Iowa.

The 1900 and 1910 US censuses for Eldora, Hardin, Iowa record William H. and Daisy as residents, while the 1910 US census for Hardin, Hardin, Iowa records William H. and Sylvia as residents.

The 1920 US census for Cedar Falls, Black Hawk, Iowa record Harlin, Daisy and Rachel as residents at 1508 Main Street. The 1925 Iowa census for Cedar Falls, Black Hawk Records W.H., Daisy and Rachel as residents at 1508 Main Street.

The 1920 US and 1925 Iowa censuses for Hardin, Hardin, Iowa record William H./Hale, Silvia/Sylvia, Frank, Beatrice, Clara, Mahlon,Hal, George, Elnor and Blanche as residents. No street address is listed.

The 1930 US census for Cedar Falls again records William H., Daisy and Rachel as residents at the 1508 Main Street address, while the 1930 US census for Hardin, Hardin, Iowa records William H., Sylvia, Frank, Hal, George, Elnore and Blanche as residents.

Given this documentation, it is clear that William Harlan Speers was married to Daisy, and only Daisy, and is buried in Cedar Falls, Iowa, while William Hale Speers was married to Sylvia, and only Sylvia, and is buried in Iowa Falls, Iowa.

It can get kind of confusing when two people with the same first and last names, middle initial, birth year, and the same county of residence can get confusing. Thank you for your assistance in helping to stimulate the search for the above documentation. That really helped to clarify the two William H. Speers.

Chuck

Hi,
I am a Find A Grave volunteer like you are. I am doing this to save you time and disappointment.
Sadly, there is absolutely NO cooperation from the San Luis Cemetery with Find A Grave volunteers. I was threatened with the police by the owner of the SL Cemetery, just talking to him over the phone. No volunteers have claimed a request in over 18 months. However, there has been great success with the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society. You can request a photo of the grave stone(s) for whom you are looking by doing the following; and they will respond promptly:
Address your email to slocgs@gmail.com
Put in the subject line San Luis Cemetery Headstone photo
Give them the name and birth and death dates, or as much as you know. Ask them to send a picture of the headstone, and tell them how you are related or what your interest is in this person. They will appreciate that. This information may only be used in genealogical research. They will respond to you within a day or two.

If a photo exists, they will send you the photo as an attachment to email. They took photos of the thousands of headstones they indexed in 2009 and 2010. They photographed virtually all headstones that could be deciphered. Everyone, who was buried there before 2009-2010, and who has a headstone, has a picture of their headstone in the database of the Genealogical Society. The society will respond to individuals, but prefers not to send pictures in bulk to Find A Grave volunteers. They also have not made an agreement to download their data to the Find A Grave servers.
I will ask that the request be removed, now that you have a very reliable and quick way to achieve your goal. If there is any problem, please let me know.

As a reference here is the website for the index. http://www.slocgs.org/pdf-files/SLO-Cem-Location.pdf

I have checked the index myself and found that a headstone picture exists for this person.

Best wishes.

Pennington Point Cemetery-Dickeys
I fulfilled your photo requests for the Dickey family in Pennington Point Cemetery. I wanted to let you know that there was two other Dickey children buried with the Dickey children you requested pictures for. One was and Infant who was buried between Hiram and Sarah. Another child named Ella (I think by looking at the picture) who was buried between Sarah and Harriet. The stones are hard to read but I took pictures of these two graves also if you would like them I can send them to you. Just let me know.

Samuel McClean Memorial# 70759976
Hello,
I contacted you in May regarding Memorial# 70759976- Samuel McClean, 1742-1820 but see you haven't had time to correct it. My concern is for others who may loose valuable research time, as did I, searching for his grave in Oak Grove.

The Samuel McClean cited in this memorial is my 5g grandfather. He is NOT buried at Oak Grove in Uniontown. In addition to personally searching the cemetery and contacting a board member who maintains the records (he is not in the Oak Grove records), I reviewed the evidence you provided me when I wrote previously. The Veteran's Burial card you provided was for a Samuel McClean (1811-1885) who participated in the Civil War and who is correctly memorialized in Memorial# 93339109 created by "Cashie". If you vist Plot: Circl 'C' Lot 228 cited in your memorial, you will find the grave noted in Cashie's memorial. Clearly, the Veteran's Burial card you provided could not possibly apply to a man who died well before the Civil War.

Samuel McClean (1742-1820)is most likely buried (per some records) in Laurel Hill- though still working on verifying this. That would make sense given his church affiliation & the location of his farm.

As I noted, the McCleans can be challenging given there were 7 very prolific sons who had many sons & kept perpetuating given names- Wm, Samuel, Alexander, Robert... down through the lines.

Hope you have time to correct this soon. Thanks for your time.

RE: Eliza Turner Bung
Hi Marilyn,
As they say, it's complicated. I'm a Stinson. Two of Eliza Bunt's daughters married Andrew Stinson--Roxa Ann and Nancy. My Great Grandfather was George Stinson, Andrew's youngest brother. When I first began genealogy, Roxa Ann and Nancy were one of my first discoveries that made me realize that this was going to be fun.
The other day I was looking up something on my Father's side of the family (Stinsons are on my Mother's side). There in the 1870 Missouri census, I found Samuel Evans Downey and his wife. Right next to them were Andrew and Nancy. The Evans are Illinois people. How did these 2 get to MO? Then to top it all off, I know that their son, David Downey is going to marry Susanna Poefinbarger who is a stepsister of George Stinson and Andrew.
I sponsor many distant family members because I like to support Findagrave.
Sincerely, Kathryn Stinson Booth

Have you noticed that some of those whom are related have different last name spellings.
That makes it confusing sometimes.
Error by the Headstone maker or by whom ever did the paper work.
So usually i try to put it on as it is spelled on the headstone.
Now if your interested in management let me know.
I am not related and will be happy to pass them on.

You can get obits from the Greenwood website if you want to i dont know if you know this or not.
The site is www.gwood.us
click on the genealogical research tab and put in the last name your looking for and it will give you all the obits that have been published in the petoskey news review
