I will be happy to transfer most of these memorials to families they belong to.|
I live and work in Saudi Arabia, so I am unable to be as active as if I were living in the States. However, Genealogy is my hobby and I am willing to contribute in any manner I am able to.

|Jack Clifford ||Anson Benton and Eliza Benton|
I am Jack Clifford
I have quite a knowledge about who Eliza Benton is.
I would be glad to share it, but if it is about Anson and the remarkable man he was, I don't know anything but what is already on his page here at Find a Grave
|ralph fries||Anson Miller Benton|
Good Afternoon Rebecca,
I am looking for any and all information about the life of Anson Miller Benton and Eliza Benton. They homesteaded in the North Star District of Southern Okanogan County, Washington, south south west of Malott, Washington and about 14 miles north of Brewster, Washington on the North Star Road. I surmise they arrived to homestead in the North Star between 1904 to 1906. They received their Homestead Land Grant Patent #179670 in accordance to the Homestead Act of 1862 for 160 acres on February 23, 1911. They sold their homestead sometime during August of 1912 to a Mr. Days.
I am a researcher for the North Star District's Homesteaders that settled in that part of the Washington Territory and the state of Washington for the first homesteaders arrival in 1886 to about 1930. My Grandfather homestead about 4 miles south of where Anson homesteaded in 1887.
Every spring since 2006, we are having the annual North Star District's Green Valley Farm Pie Social Event and Display. I write all the history about the area that covers a 20 mile radius of my Grandfather's homestead. At the present time, I have about 300 ft of 4'x4' display placards with all the information attached about the homesteaders I have researched and assembled for the display for the descendants to view and read about the history of the area.
My Grandfather wrote a book - From Copenhagen to Okanogan - it is about his life in his homesteading days after his arrival from Denmark. I think you can find a copy of his book on Amazon.com. My email address: email@example.com
Thanks for your help, it will be much appreciated,
Ralph J. Fries

Your very welcome ...... Arron
|Loring Wells||RE: Eva Wells|
I would love to know what you know about my great grandmother. i on;y have her mothers name, Sarah Jane benton, and her full name Evaline ward Wells. Her son, Paul was my grandfather. I have nothing on Eva's father and I only have a birthdate for Sarah Jane of March 1839, in Ohio.
Evaline was my Dad's grandmother. I met her twice - apparently once on her 85th ( I was very young) and once when she was 102.
Her sister lived to be 104 or 106 - I have a news paper clipping about Eva's death and it mentions her sister.
|Pat Kaas||RE: William George and Fred Becks|
You are correct in your assumption! Fred Sr. was my grandpa. I'm happy to share what information I have. Are you on ancestry? I have both a Becks tree and an Angus tree up there.
Not sure where the Frederick came from, but I think it goes even further back than my grandpa. I have been unable to find information on Wm. G. and Fred's grandpa before his marriage to their grandma. Still working on that one and will have to make a trip to the Mormon stake to see if I can get hold of a copy of his marriage record...
Conntact me via my email, firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like. I have a fair amount of info to share

Sorry no connection
|M Krause||Etta Ward Cook|
Hi, I was looking around on Ancestry.com and found that several people have her middle name as Valena. I couldn't find any documentation of this though.

|Nancy MacDonald||RE: Glen Chandler|
What an interesting history you have! Thanks for the library reference tip, and good luck in your research.
|Nancy MacDonald||Glen Chandler|
I believe I have made the updates you suggested for Glen Chandler and also linked him to his mother and added a photo of her grave. Are you related to Glen and his father, Elza Chandler? If so, you and I are probably related. I'm a descendant of Elza's father, Thomas Chandler's brother, John Chandler. Let me know if there is anything else you see that I've missed.
Yes, I live close to Blue Eye and have been working on getting photos of the headstones and missing memorials put into its cemetery for Find A Grave. I would be grateful for the Reunion Book as an adobe document and to post some of the info to memorials that I am managing. You are wonderful! I moved to this area and decided that my personal project would be to locate and enter Stone County Cemeteries. Thank You!!
