Paul Laginess
Hi Robin,
That's odd, I maybe I typed in the corrections and forgot to hit send. Thanks for the transfer, I added the birth/death dates and places.

Hi Robin,
I just wanted to let you know I found birth/death dates and places for Paul G. Laginess. Second husband to Mercy Wiseman, and I put information in the corrections section to be approved.

RE: Mercie
No problem Robin! I found out that Grace (Wiseman) Shabinaw passed away. She was Hasley "Baldy" and Mary (LaFeve) Wiseman's daughter.

RE: Ella Brigance Yocum
I'm sorry I bothered you. I knew you added a picture, but you were the only contact I could get to. The other person in charge of that memorial had disabled all their contact links.

Is there some way to contact the people in charge of FindAGrave?

Again, I'm sorry for taking up your time.

Both of these memorials have the wrong birthday for her. The 1880 Scott County, AR census shows that she and her twin, Redmond, were just one month old on that census. Making their birthdays May, 1880, since the date of the census was June, 1880.

RE: Emma Freese

I made a trip out there Monday afternoon, and could not locate her grave. The lot she's in is composed of all flat stones. They had just finished mowing the section, which didn't help matters, but I swept off as many stones as I could, and could not find her. Are you certain she is marked? I remember taking photos in that same lot/area last year, but the weather was dry then, and we've had so much rain that the grass is very thick now. If you're a relative, you can call and get the stone uncovered if she is marked. Let me know if you do that, and I'll try again. Or, perhaps, someone else will find her. I doubt I'll get back out there this week, and I don't know what the future holds at this point regarding my mom.

Sorry I couldn't find her.

Take care,

RE: Emma Freese
Hi there:

I don't know when I will get out there again; maybe next week, maybe not (it's supposed to be getting hot again--in the 90s--and the mosquitoes are biting something fierce!). Also, my mother is ill, and I've been staying close. I have a huge backlog of photos to enter (none from Lakeview that I know of), so have been doing those. If I have the time, I'll try to get to it. I can't promise anything.

As for errors in the records, there are lots of them--those are transcribed from almost entirely hand-written records, and there are some real zingers in there--here's my great-grandfather (it's that way on the plot card as well):

As I said, I can't promise anything, and just to let you know, it's not uncommon for a photo request to sit for a very long time before someone gets to it, and hopefully finds it. Some of those will never be found. I hope Emma's not one of them.

Take care,

I was mowing the rows, and did not even know there was a request out for her. I hope you like the photo. It's a difficult section to work, and HUGE! It's also sad because there are so many young folks taken before their time out there, and many have not been visited for a very long time. Many have also sunk, and need to be raised. For every photo you take, you walk past five or six, knowing there's someone there, but unless you have a backhoe or a very strong back (which I don't, and am physically limited in what I can do), you'll never get them all. I swept off her stone as best I could.

She was an adorable little girl. I can see why her family missed her so much. I'll leave her a teddy bear token.

Take care,
