James Leon Dezern
Hello Tess, my uncle James Leon Dezern (adopted about age 4years old name was Smith maybe G.D.but he went by his real name Dezern). Family had not heard from him for many years. He is buried there , so I was told. He was creamated and has a vase. He was buried by the county in a paupar spot I would say. No one claimed his body( he was kept in morgue for a while and later creameted) , he was found dead by Sheriff Dept. So I was told. Hope this helps. Someone put silly suff on his grave site once I hope that has been erased. thank You for trying to help. larry

RE: Lizzie Bagley
Hi, I'm not related either but was doing some research for good family friends who are connected to Lizzie. A transfer is not necessary but very nice of you to offer.

Geoge W. Copsey again
Me again. :) I did a bit of further checking in my family file. There is some information that is amiss. Silas Allen Copsey was not born in North Carolina. He was born in Rush County, Indiana, the son of Charles Colbert Copsey and Sarah Matthews. He moved with his parents to Lake County, California, about 1856.

Silas did marry Lucinda Rhudy and they did have a son George W., but this George was born in 1866 so he could not have been a Civil War soldier. This George died in 1908 and is buried in Lower Lake Cemetery, Lake Co. with his family. Silas Allen Copsey is also there and also on Findagrave.

There is some confusion and mixing of information going on. If you can send me the obit of the George you have, maybe I can clear things up a bit.

Not all the Copseys we come across are closely related.

All my best, Suzanne

George W. Copsey
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly and for checking further. There are more than one George W. Copsey, in fact, there are a slew of them. The George who served in Co. G. 71st Ohio is the son of Cornelius Copsey of Auglaize County, Ohio. If you have an Ancestry subscription, you will find his father Cornelius listed on his pension application, and his place of burial of Arnett (Arnot) Cemetery is listed in Headstones for Union Veterans. George is also listed with his parents Cornelius and Mary in the 1860 census in Moulton Twp., Auglaize Co., Ohio, and all this information matches, so it looks like the California George is another fellow.

I appreciate your work and your interest.
Sincerely, Suzanne

George W. Copsey
Hi Tess, I am interested in the information posted re George W. Copsey, #90207423, a Civil War soldier serving in Co. G.,71st Ohio. I have completely different information for him. My research has shown that he was the son of Cornelius Copsey and Mary Green, that he was born in Auglaize County, Ohio, that he died 02 Sep 1871, also in Auglaize County, Ohio, and he is buried in Arnett Cemetery there. I have this information from Headstones Provided for Union Soldiers and Ohio Deaths and Burials among other sources. So I am confused!
Thanks, Suzanne

Butte County Cemetary
I noticed you have quite a few memorials for the Butte County Cemetery and I was wondering if you know who is supposed to be the care taker for the cemetery? We called the county and all they could tell us was who mowed the lawn. :( Thanks for your time :)
