RE: Keith Wise
I didn't get the 1st message regarding Keith Wise.

It seems F-A-G is having quite a few problems.

I have tranferred your father's memorial to you for managing. In regards to the question about the link to his second wife, someone probably sent a "correction" to add her as I can't imagine how I would have found her.

I noticed that you posted duplicate messages in the flower section. To delete a flower, simply click on the image of the flower and you will be able to delete the extra messages.

RE: James B. Neal
Hi Jo Nell,
It has been a while since we communicated. I did want to let you know that I was able to locate the Blake Family Cemetery this past weekend. It is located very close to the Mt. Moriah Cemetery where many of the Blakes and Weavers are buried. The graves were abandoned and very overgrown but we did find a few stones, including those of William and Martha (Sleymaker) Blake who were the parents of Eliza Neal and my GG Grandmother, Susan Weaver. According to some notes from the 1970s by John V. Murphy, there are several unmarked graves on this site including Martha Blakes parents, the Sleymakers.
I do hope the Genealogical Society takes an interest. I do maintain my membership so quite possibly I can call attention to this cemetery and, after we find the owner of the land, get the small cemetery cleaned and marked.
I have searched for this burial ground for over 30 years but not living in the area, it has been somewhat of a challenge. I will keep you informed. I hope all is well with you.

RE: James B. Neal
I did look at some notes from my GG Aunt who was a DAR member. I noted the first wife of Tolbert was Charity Abney (which linked her to a Revolutionary War Vet). I did however note a second marriage to Martha Neal, which I must assume was James's sister. Like you say, if was a small circle in those days. Fascinating!!

RE: James B. Neal
Wow! Thank you Jo Nell as that gives me insight into what happened to Sarah Weaver. I knew about Jacob as he is buried at Mt Moriah and I did create his memorial and have posted pictures. I knew Jacob had a brother named Willis and a sister named Sarah. We did find an obituary for Willis who died young but we knew nothing of Sarah. I did know that Tolbert was the father of Jacob, Sarah and Willis. Your note solves some mysteries for me. I did note that James Neal was 15 years older than Eliza. The housekeeper portion makes sense given the age difference.
Please take a look at the Jacob and Susan Weaver memorials as Susan's obituary is posted as well.
Again, I am so pleased with your response and your information. I hope we can correspond as I will have some additional questions.
All the Best,

James B. Neal
I was so pleased to find the graves and memorial for James B. Neal and his wife Eliza. Eliza and my great great grandmother, Susan Weaver were sisters. I have created a memorial for Susan Weaver, her husband Jacob, along with memorials for Susan and Eliza's parents. I do hope you will take the time to look at the postings and the links. I have also added links to Susan and Eliza's sisters and brother, all buried in Mt Moriah Cemetery near Harrisburg, Illinois. If you click on the links to James Baker and his wife Margaret(Margaret is another of the sisters to Eliza), you will see a picture that includes James Neal with his in-laws. The picture was taken in October of 1918 when the Neals were visiting Harrisburg.
Once again, I was pleased to find the memorials.

We are related
I also am a great great granddaughter of John Hardin Smith. I am trying to figure out how we are related that we don't know each other. I'd love to communicate with you and explore the connection. (Are you one of Faye's or Russell's grandchildren?)

I found him, took a picture, and have upload it. I also took a better picture of Pearl Christy grave and buried nearby with pictures I upload are Carl G. Christie and Frances C. Christie, who apparently changed the spelling of their names.

Best wishes, Ed
