Thanks for that info. I believe that Padgett was the editor of the local newspaper at the time, and I think I read somewhere that David Leahy was in the car with Padgett. I'll have to check on that, if I can find my copy of Uncle Joe and the Las Vegas I remember.

Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to care for my 6th great grandfather.
|Barbara Wolf||Henry Meyer, Saint Mary's|
Mr. Meyer tombstone is unreadable now. All that was on it was his first name on the top....the same as Mary. The only reason I was able to figure it out was for the cemetery records.
I have been searching Saint Anne's cemetery for Vincent Smith. I see his parents are buried in Florida so the next best guess was grandparents. Sometimes they are all in a family plot. I found Agnes Zehner but no Vincent nearby. There are other Smiths nearby, too, but so far no Vincent. However there are plenty of open spaces so the stone may be missing. I may end up photographing the whole cemetery so I can also add new burials and supply other missing photos. At any rate, if there is no stone I may find the cemetery caretaker and get a confirmation.
Wish me luck!
Are you related to the CHarles I Fox family? My family relationship is to his wife, Mary Amelia Roy. I've used some of your information to do some further research today and found 3 of the McNeff children (of James and Alma's.) Still looking for James Jeremiah Neff's burial, but I do believe I found his death date in the SS Application index on ancestry (not a current subscriber, but can see a bit of info from a search.) There was a J J McNef, born Jul 1884, died Jul 1964 whose SS number was in the Railroad Board section of numbers. James DID work for the Pennsylvania RR.

|Susan Ridenour||Sylvanus Samuel Walker 1868-1905|
I am the GGrandaughter of S.S.Walker. My research & family history have already led me to the name Sylvanus Samuel Walker, as well as the photograph you posted. No one in our family has known what happened to him after the birth of Boener Robert in 1900. His grandson posted information about a possible divorce from Bola Caudle Walker in 1903 and by 1910 she was married to John Sharon. Do you have more information about his death in 1905(or the source for this date)?
|Ellen Hamby||Earl B. Walker (1914-1947)|
The place of birth you suggested (Saville, Crenshaw County, Alabama) differs from what Mr. Walker stated on his WW II draft registration card. I confirmed that he died in Colquitt County, but could not confirm that he died in Moultrie. Also, I could find no record in which he used his middle name--he used just the initial "B." If you have sources for the suggested details, please send them (by way of the Edit tab on the memorial.)
I made the suggested parental links.
|Ellen Hamby||Alton Lafayette Walker (1906-1999)|
I was able to confirm that he was born in Crenshaw County, Alabama, but not that he was born in the town of Honoraville. I could find no information as to where he died; the last address the SSA had for him was in Panama City, Bay County, Florida, but that doesn't mean he died there. If you have sources for the details that I couldn't confirm, please send them (through the Edit tab on the memorial.)
I made the suggested parental links.
|Kim White||Robert McDonald obit|
Thanks so much for that obit. I always wonder when I see someone died so young. This isn't the first time I've come across a tragic train-related accident. Makes you understand why there are crossing arms, blinking lights and loud bells and whistles these days.

Obituaries have been added for Myrtle Davis and Ada Boyd. Thanks much.
