The Eldridge-Bawden Families: The Ancestry and Descendants of Stephen Bawden, born 1812 in Redruth, Cornwall, England, emigrated in 1860 to Rockingham Township, Scott County, IA, in the height of the coal-mining industry; and Duncan Campbell Eldridge, one of the first to build a shanty at the foot of Main Street for his wife, Rebecca Lippincott (of the publishing family) and son Charles Henry Eldridge in 1835.
This book was commissioned by John Duvall Bawden (dec 1992) for Alice Richardson Sloane, C.G. (dec Aug 2011), published by Anundsen Pub Co, Decorah, IA 1986, with over 200 pps, photos, and a name index, hardbound in forest green with gold letters, done without a computer, and very little, if any, coordination with the publisher. There are many typos and grammar edits to make.
My mission gives this reference some dignity...I'll certainly share. You're welcome to leave a public message or personal e-mail.

The image of the chough [chuff] is an artistic endeavor to portray the national bird of the Duchy of Cornwall. Its numbers were so low that it has been put on an extinction list but has started to come back. This is the spirit of the Cornish people. The bird is about the size of an American crow and is a carrion eater. It does have a red beak and feet.

My goodness, how did you come across my aunts memorial? Thank you for pointing out how to enter data for my relative. Tom Andreas
|Audrey Quinn Porter||RE: Myrtle Leore Sleep Mosely|
I am not sure if he is or not. Hopefully, someone will respond to your photo request. I will be in Darlington at the end of June and possibly will be able to visit the cemetery.

Thank you for your kind words.
FYI - I found out that Dozard is deceased, so am working in other ways to find a way to correct.
That is a remote rural graveyard - I just took an interest in correcting her name because of recently viewing the documentary on the Hanna Ranch. Her maiden name is Hayward and since she married Hanna first, the stone has that name, with FROST as her last legal name, that of her second husband.
Findagrave tells us to use the last married name in the "married" name field and just document any former marriages in the bio.
Since the stone carries ALL her names, it would be good to copy that entire engraving down in the "Marker Transcription" area of her memorial. I used to like using both married names in the last name field, but people keep correcting that because it messes up the "search" feature of the web site.
(She is the mother of Kirk Michael Hanna, the "Eco-Cowboy" featured in the film.)
She died at the Hanna Ranch at El Paso County, Colorado.

Sorry Carol, it was my sister who took the photo. She lived close by and knew I posted in Find A Grave so when she drove by and saw the cemetery she stopped for pictures. There is nothing else around it ... no office or anything so I can't help with finding more info - sorry.

I've seen different spellings too. And have misspelled this name myself before... one of those names.
I will not delete the record because I added it years before the other one you refer to. Why dont you delete the other record?? dont worry about it so much
|Kerry Rae Smith Moser||RE: Transferring people|
idk, I do one thing though, it's a lot like kindergarten... I don't understand the nastiness that goes on either.
I have been criticized publicly on my message board and turned in to admin for documenting cemeteries. Which is what the site is for. I'm not the only one doing it... but for some reason it's ok for some to do it, but not for me. I have also supposedly run off many of the photo volunteers, not because I grab all the photo requests, as a rule I don't do photo requests because I mow the rows...but now that everyone took their ball and went home.. I am doing photo requests..
I've also been criticized for how much time I spend on here.,yeah.. because "it's a volunteer position, it's NOT a job... you do it when you have time"""" that one cracked me up because I will decide how much time I spend on here, whether that be 1 hour a day or 10.. it's MY business..
There is a HUGE disconnect between people working their family tree, and those who document cems. From what I have seen and heard, much of the nasties come from those working family only..they don't "get" why anyone would document a cemetery, or why anyone would create memorials for strangers... and so it goes...
|Tom Nelson||RE: glaspells|
I'll be more than happy to make the transfer. I have absolutely no relationship to the Glaspell family. For a time, my working theory was that Charles and Pauline were the parents of a daughter "Elizabeth" who later married a Mulholland. But the fact that no such daughter - born ca. 1873 - appears on the 1880 census with them pretty much blew that theory all to hell. However, if there IS something to my theory, please let me know the details!! So I will let YOU decide how you want to display Pauline's surname. I rarely, if ever, use a hyphenated name but did so in this case merely for "research" purposes. Her 1921 death certificate does show just the "Daniel" name, however. So I will effectuate the transfer shortly. Thanks for contacting me. Tom in Kansas City, MO

I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. These were the biggest paintings in the world,50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas.A.T.Andreas sponsored three panoramas per Theophile Poilpot (1848-1915), the most prolific panorama artist in Europe. These were the BATTLE OF SHILOH (Chicago), BATTLE OF MANASSAS (Washington, D.C.) and BATTLE OF THE MONITOR & THE MERRIMAC ( New York City).Manager of this enterprise was Louis Aime Augustin Le Prince (1841-1890),cinema pioneer.Much info to share.
