|Bio and Links|
I've always loved to hear stories about "the olden days" and my ancestors. About 25 years ago, I spent a lot of time at the National Archives and Genealogy libraries searching for information about my family. I collected quite a bit of data then, but now it is so much easier with the use of the internet! So now I am enjoying the search again. |
The family names I'm currently researching include: Harris, Carroll,Fortner, Mason, Reedy, Tipton, Baxter, Dowling, Axmann, and Reich.
Other family names I'm interested are: LaCornu,Zehr, Shantz, Dwyer, Colchin, Wosika, Moriarity, Callahan, Brown, Schoen, and Svoboda.
I love to share information and pictures too!

|Clay||RE: Sunnyside confusion|
Inez Watt resides in Sunnyside Cemetery in the Myrtle section, lot 81, and shares a headstone with Charles and Ruth Blatt.
George's death certificate shows his wife to be Lela Watt, who is also at Forest Lawn. I assume she is his second wife.
Per guess on my part: When Inez died, George bought two adjacent graves intending to be buried next to Inez. The headstone was engraved for Inez only with a blank area above for George's name and dates. When George died, his second wife Lela bought two spaces in Sunnyside Mausoleum at Forest Lawn and George was interred in one of them. When Charles Blatt died, someone recognized that the family owned an unused grave and George (and later Ruth) were buried in that grave at Sunnyside.

You're welcome. I found it in my grandmother's records. Viola, his wife was her sister. If I find anything else for him, I will let you know.

Am not related. Obit would have been submitted by someone who requested it be posted; however, unfortunately it appears the actual source was omitted by mistake.

|Michael Kokes||RE: Charles Elwood Paist newspaper article|
No I'm not a relative of Charles Paist. I just saw the obit and figured family members wouldn't think to look for it in the Ord paper. If I see a good obit on a Civil War Vet I often copy and post it, and this was a very good obit. I usually caption the picture with date and source but must have omitted it here. I've made the correction. Mike

Fannie Kinsinger Bertsche was one of 8 children of Johannes (John) Kinsinger and his second wife, Barbara Wagler Kinsinger. Fannie was born October 16, 1866 in Tazewell County; married Peter Bertsche on February 16, 1893, in Benton County, Indiana. They had 7 children. Fannie died June 19, 1927 in Goodland, Indiana. She was a sister of my great grandmother, Jakobina "Phoebe" Kinsinger Bertsche who married Peter Bertsche's brother, John Bertsche II.

|Neil Loftiss||RE: Tipton family|
Thank you for the note. It is great to hear when all this time/effort a graver puts in, is useful to someone!
|Susan & Dave||RE: photo|
you are quite welcome. FYI... when I went to the Geary City Hall, they told me someone else had just asked for information concerning Laurence Colchin. I have no idea who it was.
Thanks for the information. Is there a memorial for Wesley so I can link them?

|John Carroll||RE: Damarcus Leora Carroll|
Kelly I have no family connection to Damarcus Carroll that I can find. If you are related I will be happy to transfer his memorial to you.

Sorry, No I am not. Just added flowers to a cemetery where other relatives are buried. Good luck in your search. Mary
