I'm distantly related (if you would call it that) to the Abraham and Martha Goodchild Bolton family as well. I'm tied in through the Tanners. Alva C. Tanner married Mary A. Bolton, daughter of Abraham and Martha; Walter Tanner who wed Martha J. Bolton, also a daughter of Abraham and Martha; and Hannah Tanner married Isaac John Bolton, son of Abraham and Martha. The Tanners mentioned were siblings/cousins to my 3 great-grandmother Martha Matilda Tanner Hinkle Dodds. Any connections?
Carol LaBree Thank you so much for trying to find her headstone. I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to locate her headstone. So sad when they don't have a stone to recognize them. You have a great day. Judy Strid Taylor
Lyons Elaine, I have transferred the Lyon-Hillers to you. I am not personally related. I was researching for a friend, Marva, whose grandparents were Lena Lyons and Tobe Bednar. Her mother was Edith Marie Bednar. This just reminds me that I need to send all of this research to her since we rarely see or speak to each other anymore. ~Melissa

Helen Rabie I am sorry but I deleted your email to me before I could read it and now don't know what you said. I accidently deleted it not knowing what it was until the second I clicked delete. I now see it was from you that it was about a picture of Helens Headstone. Please forgive me and write again will you? Thank You
Joseph Schultz #32684506 I am looking for an obit or death record to validate his mother's (Elizabeth Storant Schultz)death date. There are two memorials #65476865 1840-1925 and a second #32684506 1840-1946.
I have information from History of Salem Church and the census 1900; 1910; 1920. Thank you
