Sorry I haven't filled this request, currently too much snow! So far I've been unable to find cemetery records for his grave location. But I will do my best to locate a marker. Are you related? I have located his obit and will transcribe it on his memorial soon. Sincerely, Dale

Hi Claudia,

Click on his photo for more information and a website. The info matches the info on his grave marker. Hope this helps.

Emma Connor - Conner & Wilmont
I posted your photo request but not sure this is the family you are looking for as there is no David but a Wilmont CONNER along with EMMA CONNER. There are matching headstones & golden marigolds for Mary & Louis Hedges & Mary Herrman which I've also posted. At least this may help or eliminate possibilities for you. Take Care.

Daisy is listed in plot 61, along with a Leaman W. Barton, Died in Oct. 23, 1940.
I have been recording info and photos there and have been through plot 61 twice and could not find a headstone for either of them. Sorry. MJ

Frank Bowden
Hi, I went to the cemetery this afternoon and couldn't find the grave. My guess is that it's obstructed since he is buried among other relatives and I didn't cross a single Bowdenand don't recognize the name from my other visits.

I've contacted the person who created the memorial and notated the plot and section number on the listing. She works for the Historical Society and should be able to give me a precise area where to concentrate my efforts in case it is indeed obstructed or buried under. So if it's there I'll track it down for you!

John R. Madison - Oakgrove Cemetery, Saint Marys, GA
Ms. Breland,

I photographed the grave of Maria Church Madison that you requested. The grave of her husband, U.S. Navy Lt. Commandant John R. Madison, does not exist. The Lynx and her crew was lost at sea in 1820. See below.

Lt. John R. Madison (Commandant of the Lynx, a US Navy Schoolner), departed St. Mary's, Ga., aboard the Lynx on 11 January 1820, bound for Kingston, Jamaica, to continue service suppressing pirates. The Lynx, nor her crew was never seen nor heard from again.

Thank you for the very interesting afternoon. :)

Reed Family
Hello Claudia,
I do quite a bit of genealogy work, my mother's maiden name is Reed and I have traced her Reed family back to about 1600. My Reeds came to Michigan in the 1830s. I see that you have Reeds who also were early Michigan settlers. The earliest person in Michigan for my Reeds was Nathan Reed, he came to Salem, MI in 1833. He then brought his parents and got married to Martha Cronkite while moving to Riley Township (Clinton Co.), MI. A couple of his sons were early settlers of Lansing. All of the Reeds in Michigan that I've found so far are related through a common ancestor. If you're on ancestry, go to my Find A Grave page and there's a link to my ancestry tree. Also you could go to my F.A.G. page and search/ view all Reeds that I manage here. I was looking through the Reeds that you manage here on F.A.G. and I couldn't make any connections.

Lawrence Ellett
Hello, I see that Lawrences wife also has Find A Grave# but no request for a picture. He is in a double plot and I believe she is next to him but has no plaque to identify her there, just and empty space. I have a picture with both his and her spaces if you want it, let me know.

Emma Swanson Sioux City
I can find no listing for Emma Swanson at Graceland in Sioux City. Could she be under another name? or Buried with her parents?
