|Bio and Links|
I started doing genealogical research when I was eleven years old in 1968-- over forty-five years ago. My interest in cemeteries and tombstones grew out of that passion for family history and I now have images I have taken of over 1,600 beautiful, interesting, famous, and humorous tombstones from all over the world. I give programs using those collections of photographs. Today, I live in Westminster, Colorado.|

the number you sent to me does not match
|Thomas Sanders||RE: Billy Benedict|
My brench is Egbert Comstock Benedict, if I got it Billy would be my gt gt gt gt grandfather. will put Billy in dunk cemetery.
The Caswell entries you asked about are from photos that I took in that cemetery. The asterisk is Find A Grave's indication of a calculated relationship. If you hover over that, it gives you the Find A Grave explanation.

Nope, not a historian. My sister's the family genealogist. I try to take cemetery pictures whenever I'm driving her around to look for our ancestor's grave sites. I do use the newspaper archives from the Belleville Public Library and am able to find quite a bit of interesting information. I highly recommend it to you. It's an awesome source!

You are very welcome! Glad to help!
|SteveDM||RE: Stiners in Guernsey Cemetery|
I transfered the memorials you asked for and also I have walked that cemetery a number of times and couldn't find a headstone for them.

I did a little looking on the William A. and William L. Gardner. All the records I can find either just say William or William A. The only place I see the William L. is on his tombstone. His first wife's stone, as you no doubt saw, says "wife of William A. Gardner." However, the dates on his tombstone correlate with the dates for William A. and he is buried in the same plot with his second wife. My best guess is that someone made a mistake on his tombstone. By the time he died, his parents and both of his wives were long since dead. Perhaps one of his children just got his middle initial wrong, or the headstone company made an error.
I concur that it was L. D. Gardner Sr. who married Rebecca Sissom. By the way, as I looked through some of my Gardner information, I discovered that there was a fourth Lorenzo Dow Gardner (another cousin) living in Fort Scott, Kansas, which is not far from Wilson County.
I may try to go to that Whiteside Cemetery just to look around a bit, but it will probably be a few months before I have the chance. I live in Southeast Kansas, so I can do stuff like that when I have time.
|Ruth Zollars||RE: Mary Isabell Gardner|
There were 3 Lorenzo Dow Gardners in the area. They all went by L. D. and were related. There was L. D. Sr. and L. D. Jr. L. D. Jr. is buried in Longton Cemetery, Longton, Elk County, Kansas. The other L. D. was a cousin who married one of the daughters of L. D. Sr. and Elizabeth. Off the top of my head, I am not sure about the two Williams. I will try to look through my information and see if I can find them.
Do you have an approximate birthdate for the L. D. who married Rebecca Sissom? That would help me confirm which one of the L. D. Gardners it was.

I have transferred the memorial, so you can add the info and links that you have. I am uncertain if we are connected or not. My husband's great-great grandparents were Lorenzo Dow Gardner Sr. and his wife Elizabeth. Elizabeth and some of the children are buried there in Weakley Cemetery, but we have not found where Lorenzo Dow Sr. is buried. When we went to Weakley and found several Gardner relations there, we took pictures of all the Gardner stones we found. We really weren't sure if this Mary Isabell was connected to his Gardners or not.
