Rosetta (Bowers) Houser
Hi there - I made the update you requested and added a few more dates : ) Is Rosetta a family member of yours? Would you like me to transfer her memorial to you?

Captn Nova,
Thank you for the obit for Normal Hagen - if you come across any more for my memorials, please don't hesitate to send them my way! I don't post info about living family members, though, so I will delete that portion. Thank you again!

Fred Curry
OK, I'm deleting my Fred. I touched base with another contributor who lives in Carson City and has done extensive work on Lone Mountain cemetery. You can read her comments to me on my contributor's page. With her comments, I feel comfortable that the information I used to create the memorial was somehow in error. So . . . all's well that ends well. Thanks for an interesting day's research.

Fred Curry
Your evidence is compelling and it does seem that you are correct but I have to ask, who is the Fred B. Curry who died in 1899 and is shown as being buried next to Charles Curry in the family plot in Carson City? If that piece of evidence didn't exist, I would accept what you have presented 100%.

Fred Curry
Thank you for your note regarding Fred Curry. I can certainly see where you may have come to the conclusion that the Fred Curry buried in Los Angeles could be the son of Charles Curry who died in Carson City in 1863. However, the dates of death are considerably different for the two Freds and, according to the Lone Mountain Cemetery records, the Fred who died in 1899 is buried in the same plot as his father. You can find this record here:

There were other Currys living in the Carson City area at that time and I don't understand your comment that being the step-son of Theron Winston verifies that the Fred in L.A. is the son of Charles. What is the relationship of Theron to the Curry family?

I honestly am not trying to argue and only want to figure out what is correct. To that end, I have requested tombstone photos on both memorials to see if what is on the tombstones sheds any light on the situation. I believe we may be looking at two different individuals.

James Frazey
Thank you for the info on James Frazey. I'm not able to get the wives to show in the correct order. Maybe you don't have a date of the first marriage. That might do it. Otherwise, if you would unlink him from his first wife, I could get his wives to show in the correct order. Let me know if you unlink them.

Thank you for the photo and the obituary. Could you double check your source and confirm the typo "women" in the headline? -Rebecca

J. T. Angell (Silver City Cemetery, NV)

I have corrected this memorial to reflect his full name, Joseph Fenner Angell and have included a disclaimer up front until I can verify if he was, in fact, taken to Reno for burial. I have reviewed records from earlier tombstone transcripts and do not find him at the Knights of Pythias Cemetery where his son M. F. Angell is buried with a tombstone. I cannot find his wife either. He and wife may be in unmarked graves where the son is buried or he may have been buried in the Masonic Cemetery, of which I have no online list source.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
