|Lesa McClay||142158719 Jessie May Fierce|
Hi. I see you mentioned the death cert regarding Jessie May Fierce (Chapman). She was my 2 ggrandma. If possible, could you share a copy of it by email to me?
Also, in my grandma (Alberta Sopher's handwriting) in a letter to me dated 1970's, she stated Jessie May's husband as "James Robert", but I've seen "Robert Melvin/Mevlin" frequently, have you ran across that name conflict before?
Thanks, for any guidance.
Hi Kathryn. I transferred Jessie to you. I am eager to see the information you add for her. I have Chapman ancestors who were from Kentucky but did not move to Illinois until the 1930's. I was curious to know where the Chapman's buried in Cambridge, Illinois came from. I have taken 100's of photos at Rosedale Cemetery and am slowly getting them added. I live about 20 miles from there and was surprised to see such a big old cemetery had so few graves listed on Find A Grave so I started working on it last year.

|PACKRATSBROTHER||Wayne M. Harris|
The name Wayne M. Harris, dated May 16, 1946 is in machinist's sketch book that I found in an old toolbox. It looks Mr. Harris was the client of the machinist in Los Angeles. This may not be the right forum but I would be happy to post a photo somewhere if there are relatives interested in seeing it.
|One Foot In The Grave||Fred & Sadie Tucker|
Let me know if you haven't received confirmation that those two people were transferred to you. The contributor number you gave me didn't match your name, but I got the correct number - I hope - from your original transfer request.
One Foot In The Grave
Would you have Sanford and Kathryn Jaques Parents
More than happy to transfer management over to you! She is not a relative of mine, just posted her info in hopes her family would find her! Best Wishes!

I'm descended from Benjamin Fowle and wonder if you are as well. Given that Harris is in your name, you may be the Harris that I emailed through Ancestry.com. Benjamin Fowle would be my 5th great grandfather through his son Jacob, who had a daughter named Martha who married Alfred Bemis.

Why don't you send a photo request for Permelia's headstone? That way we can be sure that the guy who made the directory didn't record it incorrectly. Even so, spelling seems to have been somewhat fluid in those days. I know it was in my family!

|wjw||RE: Harris memorials|
Thanks for letting me know. I have deleted my records for the two Harrises. I have a directory of the cemetery headstones published in 1995. I added all the names (almost 7,000) that weren't on Find A Grave before I started the project. Looks like you created your records after I did my check and before I got to this page in the directory. So I'm the person who created the memorials for all of the other Harrises too. There are a total of 14 Harrises in this cemetery; 8 of those are near J. W. and Parmelia. If these are relatives whose memorials you would like to manage, just let me know. By the way, in the remarks column in the directory next to J. W. Harris, it says he was a "pioneer prohibitionist." Usually, those remarks are what is carved on the stone, but occasionally the author put in something that he knew about the person. Also, Permelia is the spelling in the directory. Since she died first, I would think that J. W. would have carved her stone so perhaps that should be the spelling?

|The Seeker||RE: Aneta Gale Harris Finley|
I not related as far as I know. I'm just trying to link people together that are from Shelby County, Iowa. Both my parents are from Shelby County. I have been working mostly on the cemeteries of Earling, Defiance, Portsmouth, Panama, Harlan and Westphalia for the last three or four years. I have relatives buried in all of these cemeterys. After doing some research, it is interesting to see how all these familys seem to be related to each other somehow. In the Harlan cemetery, I have over 1800 people I have done research and linked together with their families. I know I probably have a few errors here and there, but I welcome people to set the record straight.
Thanks : )
