RE: The West Family of Laramie, WY
I read your e-mail and I am a little confused by it. Victor is buried next to Mary Miner West. I don't know what the "WRT" in your message means. The person that created the memorials, created them for FindAGrave so all the people who were searching for loved ones could find them. He did not create any memorials that were already posted in FindAGrave. The picture he posted on all the memorials, was the one at the entry way of the cemetery at the time the work was done. He is like others who post pictures upon request of different sites. Now for Victor. Victor is buried where he is listed on FindAGrave. Victor does NOT have a stone. This is not rare. There are many graves which do not have stones. Someone has to purchase to have it placed on a grave site. I went back to the grave site and probed in the grass to see if maybe it was a small or flat one that grass had overgrown. I did not find one. I did go the library to look up his obituary in the newspaper. His obituary is in The Laramie Republican Boomerang of 2-21-1950, on pg 4 col 5. His middle name is Elsworth. He died on Saturday 2-18-1950, when his house caught fire and he did not get out of it in time. He was born at Perry Park, CO on 3-8-1888. He owned, with his brother Joseph, the Laramie Blacksmith Shop. His sister was Abbie Naginey. He was well respected in the community. I hope this information is helpful.

Heinrich Fauver
I'd like to suggest a few things to edit for Heinrich Fauver. His surname is actually Faber, it was anglicized when he and his sons Johann Heinrich and Frederick served in the American Revolution. His wife was Marie Elizabeth Faber (surname unknown) his children are Margaretha, born 1755, Anna Marie, born 1758, Johann Heinrich, born 1760, Fredrick, born 1762 and Johannes, born 1764. I can give you birth dates for all kids, I can not give you deaths, spouses and spouses date of birth and date of death, some info is missing. Thanks!

RE: Joseph Carlisle Barton
A lot of Dutch in both of my parents family trees.
Mom's family and some of dad's was Winthrop Fleet involved in the early colonization of CT, Long Island, NY and New Jersey.

I did not know my grandfather as he was killed by a train before I was born. I am the baby of the family.
My grandfather's marriage to Carrie Barton never came up.
Mom was not even aware Emby was married to anybody but my grandmother.
My oldest cousin was even misinformed that his first wife and their infant daughter had died in their first trip to Washington before 1898. That he had returned to Kentucky rather then being told they had gotten a divorce. The infant daughter and returning to Kentucky was most likely true but I have no way to verify it.
More later.

RE: Joseph Carlisle Barton
Be happy to wait for a few days but I will be gone for a short time after that.
At first when I looked at Ida Mae married to a much older man, it was about as clear as mud.
That is until I found her in the 1940 Cincinnati census listed as the mother of Daniel J Donnelly, born 1903. However her age is 10 years off saying she is 75 instead of 65.
Also in Cincinnati on his WW2 draft card is my Grandfather's half brother Maynard Ellsworth Centers listed as a barber, divorced a 2nd time living in a boarding house.
He was married 1897 to Ida's sister Ada, they divorced before 1920. Maynard and Ada remarried.
After 1940, I lost track of him.
Thanks for getting back to me.

Joseph Carlisle Barton
Thank you for adding Joe and his wife Rachel.
I have them in my files but did not know where they went.
If you are related or even just want to know, I would be happy to share my information on the Barton family.
Thanks again

Thomas Frank Barton
He was my grandfather's brother-in-law. Everybody called him Frank. Nobody in the family living now knew his real first name was Thomas until I found "Son of T. F. and Ida Barton" on one of his children's headstones then later found him as Thomas in a census.
Mistakes happen and I have made a few honest ones.
Thanks for the corrected correction.

Not necessary to post photo request. I will take care of them on my next trip to Mount Carmel.

RE: Pix of Clyde and Myrtle S
Looks like Spring is coming early (unless winter sneaks another quick one in soon) - so I'll be back at the photo shooting soon, I hope!
Interesting factoid about Caledonia - I've always wondered where that came from. Indeed, there was a large population of Irish/Scottish that settled this area going way back - lots of names that start with Mc in the local cemeteries! Keep watching and hopefully I'll be finding the rest of your Schellengers soon. Steph
