Bio Photo I'm open and will consider any request for memorial ownership release or transfer to someone who will do the memorial more justice, or is more directly related.

I have absolutely no problem with any person using my Findagrave photographs for their own genealogical project.

John Henry and Emma (Riggins)Allen
Not requesting a Transfer would you link me
to this cousin. Emma Riggins would be my cousin
3 or 4 times removed. I have not calculated the
estimated generation in years yet.

Thanks for all your help and information. Eliza Riggins Gamblin
was my 3rd great grandmother.

You are correct. I misread the headstone. I've made the correction.

Mary J. Prock Bushnell Baker Eccleston
Gary: Family research shows she was married to a Bushnell and that Prock was, indeed, her maiden name. Thank you for your interest. ~ Jan

ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

Mertz Family
I'm just curious if you are by any chance related to the Mertz family in Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery in Rantoul, Calumet County. They also came from Russia. Volga Deutsch. Just curious.

RE: Bryan & Heimer
Yes, Gary, they were my grandparents and I would be glad to take them over for you. Do I need to do anything specifically to maintain them, etc. I have not done this before and am learning as I go. Thank you. JBryan

Early 1900's pictures from Pendleton
Hi --
I'm sorry, but I would not be able to identify anyone in the pictures you have. Wish I could help.

You asked my connection to Judge Thomas Hailey. He was a cousin -- 1st cousin twice removed.

I notice that you have some memorials for Zumwalt people. I have an Isaac Zumwalt, b. 1842 in Missouri, d. sometime after 1900, father of Mary Ann Zumwalt b. about 1863. The last record I have is the 1900 census when he was in Junction City, Lane Co., OR. According to census data, he was the son of John & Lucinda Zumwalt. Would he possibly show up in your Zumwalt family?

Thank you,
