RE: Jesse M Rawson
Thanks for the welcome to Findagrave. I know I'm trying... I went to the funeral for Jesse Melvin Rawson's spouse, Clela B Baker Rawson (Memorial# 101306621). It was a bit awkward, but was able to get quite a bit of information from the (my) relatives, although we had never met before. Many were in from Texas. By the way I show Clela's middle name to be "Clementine" but it contradicts what is on the grave stone. I need to check more. Thanks for approving my edits.

RE: Jesse M Rawson
Hello Brenda,
You are quick to respond to my edits... Yes, (Melvin) appears to be a family name, used as a middle name in at least three generations according to my records. Thanks for questioning it, we need to be accurate.

I appreciate the transfer so much. I knew that Benji was buried in Quincy but my friend couldn't remember the name of the cemetery. I am so glad that you made the memorial and linked him to his parents.

We have a black and white photo of his headstone with his parents beside it all those years ago. I will find it and post it.

My friend told me the story of Benji's death and I put it in his bio.

Again, I really, really appreciate the transfer and my friend and her sister will be very excited to see the memorial.

Thanks again!

RE: Margaret Armstrong O'Dell
Thank You for your Thank Yous!! :)
FYI, in 1805 the Armstrong's neighbor in Livonia New York was the family of Reuben Runyan's (1765-abt1844). Thought you may find interest with that.

RE: Caleb Burlingame.
Thank you for doing the updates so quickly and looking for his wives. I may have to do a road trip out there this summer and see if I can find anyone else. Much appreciated, Jessica

Charles Thompson
My Thompson line lived in Fenwick, Mi. fairplains Montcalm area. He was married to a Olive Arvilla Sherman (Maiden name) I was told the grave site was engraved wrong. There is a William and Flora Thompson with a son Fred Thompson. Ferris Earl Thompson is my maternal grandpa at Clear Lake Cemtary. It says his parents a Charles and Olive? There was also a Robert Thompson and Caroline that lived next door to them? Rhoda Jones Sherman-Dewitt is Olive's mother??? Is this the same Charles Thompson? Born Feb 10, 1870...
Help !
