Hi Patty,

I'm new to ancestry research. I'm asking about the memorial for Hollandsworth. They are 5th generation greats to me. The article said they came to Maryland in the 1600's but didn't say where their 'motherland' was. Do you happen to have that information?

If Robert Leroy was your Father, then your Grandfathers brother married a Kibel. so you grandaunt was a Kibel.

Elizabeth Kibel Sanderson
I noticed you had a memorial for Elizabeth that said her burial place was unknown. Elizabeth and Jonah Washington Sanderson are buried at the Roselawn Cemetery, Fort Collins, Larimer, Colorado, USA. Her Find A Grave memorial can be found if you search for memorial 120223275.

Donna Friedley
I had a request from someone to add the name ILA Friedley to a post in Mt. Nebo. Do you happen to know the name of LM Friedley who is buried in Mt. Nebo. I have tried all my sources of documentation and cant find any proof for her request. Thanks so much for your help.

RE: bio for Lenora Irene Smith
hmmmm, if your father was her cousin, then we are probably not connected. My common ancestor with Lenora is John Fredrick Dolke/Dilka, the immigrant from Germany. For her the descent is John Fredrick, Mary Hattie Dilka, Elizabeth C. Kibel, Lenora. For me it is John Fredrick Dolke, John Andrew Dilka or Dilkey, William Henry Dilkey, my mother, me.

RE: bio for Lenora Irene Smith
You are quite welcome. Lenora was my second cousin, once removed. Perhaps we are also cousins.

Maybe you can tell me where Minnie Margaret Sanderson King is buried, and if Wilma Catherine Sanderson Roadifer is still alive?

RE: bio for Lenora Irene Smith
I do not know what cemetery she is in, or if she is in a cemetery at all. I was trying to determine that when I got the obituary from the library in Gresham. The arrangements were done by Affordable Funeral Alternatives, a business in Gresham that is still in existence, according to the yellow pages. Their phone number is (503) 618-9396. They could probably tell you where she is buried, or what was done with her ashes.

RE: Missouri Beatty
John is probably right next to her. But who ever made the arrangements, didn't give him a stone. Usually the last to die doesn't have a stone, unless they arranged it before. His death cert. shows he is there. Granted that could be an error. But I doubt it. There is an open spot right next to Missouri Ann, and I bet that is his. I hope that helps.
