RE: Lucinda Hutchinson Church

I remember working with you on Lucinda Church. It looks like you have been very successful in adding more to her story.

With the youngest daughter, Rosa, being born in Calhoun County instead of Kansas, the whole story now makes sense. That was the part that threw everything off.

I think you're right that Lucinda's four children who died in Calhoun County are probably buried at Cresswell. The only other place they could possibly be would be Carrico-Plummer. I double-checked the Calhoun County Historical Society records today, and they don't have a single person with the surname Church buried at Carrico. Lucinda is the only Church they have listed at Cresswell.

I worked on Lucinda's Find A Grave bio today to up-date it with all the new information you found. If you see anything else that needs to be changed, please let me know.

Thanks very much for all your hard work. I appreciate you sharing the information with me. I'll look forward to hearing from you again if you make any more discoveries!

Your Lydia Smyth and one other are duplicates,
you might want to review them. Sorry I don't have the numbers, but just key in Smyth and all 6 will pop up.

I "moved" him to Green Lawn, and will be glad to transfer him to you if you want--and any other family members you may want.

Sina and William Reynolds
Hello Gary,
Wanted to let you know that I did find obits for Sina and her husband William in the Winfield Daily Courier and have posted the obits to their memorials.

Take care

Hello Gary,
I am adding names to the Dexter cemetery listing from a written cemetery transcription I had copied from the Cherokee Strip Museum at Ark City. I have already photographed the entire Dexter cemetery a few years ago and now adding additional names from this list. I have noticed that many from this list are unmarked graves. I have gone to the Ark City public library to confirm that many of the additional names that I am adding are in fact buried there according to the obits that I have found. On my next visit to the library I will look for Sina Reynolds obit to see if I can find it.

Take care

Asa Carrico

Thanks for identifying Ann Lewis as the daughter of Asa Carrico. I'm working on the bios for the Calhoun memorials I've added, but that is a very slow process. Each one takes a long, long time to research, verify and link to others. Much of Carrico-Plummer Cemetery is still on my to-do list.

I agree with you that it seems logical that Asa Carrico was buried at Carrico-Plummer. However, there must not be documentation of any kind to prove that or the historical society would have him listed there. I have added every name to Find A Grave that the historical society confirmed for that cemetery.

I have talked to several others who feel that there are some questions as to the difference between Carrico-Plummer and Gilead Cemeteries. There is some confusion about people whose death records show them buried at one, but their obits clearly indicate burial was the other. I discussed this with some very knowledgeable people, but never did come up with a definitive answer.

The lack of photographs does not necessarily indicate a non-existent stone for those buried at Carrico-Plummer. There are no pictures because no one has taken any there and posted them on Find A Grave.

I don't know exactly where Carrico-Plummer is located. Most of my closest relatives are buried south of there. Do you live near Calhoun County? Your research might benefit greatly if you were able to visit the cemetery yourself. I have seen a couple of old pictures that were taken there years ago, and it looked ok at that time. It may have fallen into disrepair in the years since. The historical society might be able to give you specific directions, but I don't know.

Since we don't have any hard evidence whatsoever as to the cemetery where Asa Carrico was buried, I would not put him at Carrico-Plummer at this time. You could create a memorial for him and indicate that the burial place is unknown. When you click on the edit button by the word Burial, "Burial Information Unknown at this time" is an option.

Find A Grave actually intends Burial Information Unknown to be used temporarily until you find the cemetery, so you can always change it later if you do come up with documentation for where Asa was buried. An overabundance of unknown burials would make a mess of Find A Grave, so I try to keep the number of these memorials to the bare minimum in order to avoid confusion.

If you do decide to create a memorial for Asa, I would be sure to write a very complete bio that tells as much of his story as possible. That way, others may be able to assist you with more information or contact you if they have documentation regarding the cemetery. You should probably send link numbers to the owner's of memorials for Asa's children--like Ann Lewis--so that they can be linked to Asa if you do create a memorial for him.

I do know of a couple of Calhoun County burials that are not included in the historical society's records, so I am sure some others have also been missed along the way. That would be especially true of the earliest burials. It does surprise me that Asa Carrico would have been left off the list since his family must have been connected in some way to the cemetery that bears their name. Those are not the type that are most likely to be lost, but stranger things have happened.

Hope this helps.
