Hi Karen,
I am requesting the transfer of the memorials for Charles Taylor (#20913004) and Mary Augusta Fitzpatrick Taylor (#20913061). They are my maternal great-grandparents.

Thank you

RE: Adolf and Ellin Mathison
Thank you for responding to me. My parents are Dean and Penny (Vance) Loeffel. I would love to see pictures of Helen when she was younger and of her siblings. I've really been working on my ancestry in the last couple years and my grandma Betty's side is the one I know least about. My address is 6693 Hill St. Caledonia, IL 61011. Thank you so much, I really appreciate it!

Adolf and Ellin Mathison
Hi Karen,

My grandmother was Betty Nelson Elliott, she passed away in 1990 due to a house fire. I was wondering if by chance you had any pictures of her grandparents Adolf and Ellin? Or even any of her parents Olaf and Helen? Because of the house fire, I really dont have many pictures of her or her family. Ive never seen what her grandparents look like, or young pictures of her parents. I understand if you do not have any pictures, I saw that you were the one who posted their grave sites and I thought I would give it a shot.
Thank you!

Re: Courtland Mundy
You are quite welcome, it took a considerable amount of scrubbing with a soft brush, to get all the moss off of the stone and out of the letters as they were filled and of course the moss attaches itself to the surrounding cement.

I linked Daisy to her parentsper your request. ;) Got busy with other projects so your note was a nice reminder. I was surprised to see the original creator of her memorial wrote a V for her middle initial. I've been following family trees and always found others saying it was an ---- L not V.Do you know which one is correct? All documents I found have Daisy L. Recorded.

Henry Evans, Mem. #21796113
Dear Karen,

I'm so grateful to you for the fine job you did, creating the memorial for Henry Evans, Pioneer Cemetery, Delaware County, NY. It looks like a beautiful cemetery. I assume the headstone for Henry Evans (Sr.) no longer exists, and the photo attached to it is a substitute belonging to Henry Evans (Jr.). Am I correct?

I am related to Henry & Abigail Evans, through their daughter Lydia, who married Ezra White. Although the history states they died in New York, they actually relocated to Erie County, PA. Lydia died in 1835 and is buried at a McKean, Erie County, PA cemetery. I believe her headstone to be "missing in action". Ezra White (Sr.) again relocated to Michigan, but only temporarily. Ezra then relocated to his final home and resting place, Marengo, McHenry County, IL. He is buried in Old Marengo Cemetery, and his marker has survived, thanks to restoration. A metal symbol also marks his interment "War of 1812 Veteran". Ezra White died Dec. 29, 1848.

I hope this explains the discrepancy.

Thank You
My compliments on your work with the Hull family. With all the linkage you have accomplished, I have to presume you are related to these folks?? If so, and you are interested in how they tie into the Ferris Tree, please contact me via email and I will be glad to send you the info.
