RE: Duplicate Memorials
Thanks for taking care of the dupes at Selby. I just requested the cemetery merge on Monday, so that's pretty good response from Find A Grave.

RE: Isabel Lemon Palmer
well, it would appear we are certainly cousins!
I have some information on Isabel's brother. Two years younger, his name was Houston Felix Lemon, born on April 7, 1850 in Clark County, Indiana. Died in March of 1923 at the Veteran's Hospital in Fort Snelling, Minn. According to the history of Filmore, Minn,
he served as a drummer boy for 100 days during the Cilvil War. After his 100 drays were up he enclosed in Company I, 155 of the First Volunteer Unit of Illinois. After the war he moved to Filmore, Minn and married. At some point he delivered horses to the RIngling Circus in the east. Gone for months at a time.
I know his Dad, Benjamin Lemon lived with him on and off, as well as his daughter, after his wife died.

So where do you live? I live in Calabasas, California. I am 63 years old, married, one dog.
As far as the Lemon line goes, I still can't figure our the dates between BF Lemon's father and mother. As I mentioned, they'd be 10 and 12 when they became parents. Just doesn't make sense!
Have a great vacation!

RE: Houston Lemon's Father - Benjamin Franklin Lemon
Thanks for the reminder. I should have added that when I added the other family members. Anything that you find on Benjamin's parents would be great information. Thanks again for letting me know

RE: Isabel Lemon Palmer
Hi Rusty! Thanks so much for answering. The only two siblings I can find that show up in the census year after year are:
Houston Felix Lemon 1848-1923 (he married as well) and Mae E. Lemon (1873-1948). I also know that sometimes. What I would LOVE to know is how they came up with the name Wildred. Cross between William and Mildred??
I cannot find a good match for Benjamin Franklin Lemons parents.
THe one that a few other family trees have as his parents don't make sense as they would have had BF at the ages of 10 and 12.
Don't think so. It's a mystery. Good luck with your sleuthing. Are you actually related to the Lemon line? If so, how so?
Many thanks. Lynn O'Leary.

Isabel Lemon Palmer
So thrilled to find this information about my Great, Great grandparents! Galusha and Isabel Palmer. Thank you so much for all of the excellent information and photos. Their eldest daughter Lulu Bell Palmer was my grandmother's mom. LuluBell married Martin Smith and my grandmother, ALice Smith was one of 11 kids.
I am also thrilled to see the photos. I do have a very old photo that I now can ID as Galusha and Isabel. If you like I can send you a copy. GOod to meet you and thanks again. Oh, and I also am confused about Benjamin F. Lemon. Unless he was born a good ten years later than his records indicate, the parents listed in most family trees just don't work time wise.
Thanks. Lynn O'Leary

Benjamin Franklin Lemon
I'm doing a family search and I see you list the birth date of Benjamin as being 1814. His father William was born in 1800 and his mother Phoebe Jenks was born in 1802. They were married in 1825. Help me understand what I'm not getting. His mother would have been about 12 and his father 14??

Re: David Oliver Holmes
I'm hoping we can find a way to combine David O. Holmes memorial by me with his son Paul, created by you. My D O Holmes memorial # is 66437714 and connects some of his sons who also went to Oregon besides William Livingston Holmes. I hope we can work together. Thanks!

Daniel Oliver Mitchell
Daniel Mitchell is my GGGrandfather you have said that his actual birth record was found in the town clerks record of Philadelphia, Rutland County, Vermont. Do you have a copy of this or know how I can get one? We all have him from a small town near Dublin, Ireland. He came here looking for his brother La Fayette who came over a few years earlier. Anything would be a help.

Thank You,
Richard Mitchell

Paul Holmes
Hello, I am a direct decendent of Paul Holmes burried in the Smith Cemetary, Missouri. I noted that you were the original entry for this grave information there. Can you tell me how you came upon this information?
