|Dusty Poss||Marker for Vance & Mayme Reynolds|
The Mission City Memorial Park Cemetery reported to you (or to MathTeacherGuy) that there was no marker for Vance & Mayme Reynolds (Memorials #45403644 and 45403653). Fortunately that is not true. I came across it yesterday, mostly obscured by sand. I may take a better photo of it soon. When I return, I will bring a wisk broom.

|RAS||RE: Mary Ann White Scudder, Bellafontaine Cemetery|
It's not a big deal, but as I was researching her husband because the family built one of the biggest Colonial Revival "cottages" in Oconomowoc, WI in 1895 - I learned that she passed away in Oconomowoc, WI on June 13, 1900 -- right after they came to Oconomowoc for the summer.

|Esther||RE: Michael Smith|
Thank you. I'm sorry his tombstone is missing. I wonder if something happened to his tombstone before they kept record of those sort of things. The cemetery is in a rougher part of town and I sadly saw many tombstones that were damaged. Sorry for all the confusion, he's in the Fairfield-Suisun cemetery and I just wanted you to have the correct phone numbers for both just incase you had questions. If you have any other questions- let me know. I will continue to take pictures of those cemeteries. If I happen to find his grave. I'll let you know.

You are very welcome.
|Kathryn Johnson Joly||RE: Richard Kendrick & Esther McIntosh|
Glad to know that you found the info helpful.
With regard to Hester vs. Esther, it has been my experience that the two were used interchangeably back in the 1800s in Dundas County. As you know, spelling wasn't the greatest and names were recorded as they sounded. As for the McIntosh family, Esther is a very common name and there were always several women in each generation with the name. In fact, I still have a cousin named Esther McIntosh. I have only seen it spelled that way in family bibles, etc., but it may have been recorded differently when she left this area for another where it was more commonly spelled "Hester". I believe that "Esther" is the biblical spelling as well.
Hope this sheds a bit of light on your question.
All the best,
