I da Ellis
Not listed in Angelo, meaning if she is buried there, there is no headstone.
and A. Ellis is the only one listed in Oak Grove, also meaning he was the only one with a headstone at the time Ralph listed them all.

AHA Ananias...
I looked at the other listing, which just has the names, and A Ellis is listed, so at that time when Ralph Henderson transcribed the cemetery there was a headstone for Ananias.. and it is recorded in the Monroe Co History room. So chances are it is on the map at the cemetery. ...sorry to confuse you!

Ananias Ellis and Ruth Ellis
Hi, I attempted to look up their lot in the Oak Grove Cemetery and they are not listed on the online cemetery listing on Lutheransonline where I get most of my info for this cemetery. However, I will leave the request and maybe it is on the map at the cemetery. I am not sure when I will be going to the cemetery to photograph, its been pretty cold and they keep the hilly sections roped off until warm weather.

RE: descendants of Adam Geyer
Yes I am, but I never received those records. Contact Edward Geer at This address was good about a year ago. If this is no longer his address, let me know. I will track him down. I had to do it once before for a man from England who was researching his mother's family.

He hasn't put anything new on that tree in years. He has it all in a genealogy program now.

RE: Lyman Benson
No, I haven't seen your line in the links, however, I did find your father in the 1940 census, and that he was born in S Dakota. And no, I haven't seen the book by Richard Benson. I figured out (if I figured right) that my cousin Ronald and I are 4th cousins to your Dad.
