RE: William Haver b. 1877
The marriage to Hilda Schroeder was taken from a handwritten note on the cemetery file card at the Newport History Center. There was no reference to any source so I have removed it from the memorial. Many of these handwritten notes have turned out to be written by the volunteer filing the cards without reference to any reliable source.

RE: Lewis C. McBride
I remember my Dad telling me that Lewis's middle name was Carver but after looking, I can't find any official record that confirms this. They all seem to just use "C" (marriage record, death certificate, pension record, military records). I found an obituary that used Cass as his middle name and a census record also but those often have incorrect information so I would tend to believe my Dad until proven otherwise.

Lewis and his first wife, Mary Elizabeth (30 May 1847- 9 Nov. 1913), had 4 children: Jason E. (1870 or 1872-1957), Orin W. (1875-1962), Maude M.(1889-1953) and Effie Mae (1893-1969). I have seen several different years of birth for Maude and Effie but I think these are accurate. Their dates of death are confirmed by an obituary for Maude and a death certificate for Effie. Lewis had no children with any of his other wives. He did not have a son named Joseph but he did have a brother named Joseph Clarke McBride (born 1844). He also had two other brothers (Silas B. and Alfred) and two sisters (Alice Amelia and Isabell Rose). His parents were Andrew McBride and MaryAnn Keely (or Keeley). I don't know much about his second wife Alberta Brown except what I found in cemetery records for Wyuka Cemetery in Lincoln, Nebraska where she is buried. It gives her birth date as December 20 1864 and date of death as Sept 1 1919. As for crediting me in your book, while it's not necessary you may if you would like to.

RE: Lewis C. McBride
I'm sorry I don't have any information on MaryAnn Donaldson. The first marriage for Lewis C. McBride (my great grandfather) that I have is to Mary Elizabeth Stoner, my great grandmother. They married July 4, 1868 in Marengo, Iowa County, Iowa. She died in 1913 in Lincoln, Nebraska. I have a copy of his pension records that I received through the National Archives many years ago and he listed her as his first wife. As his second wife I have Alberta Brown. They married in 1915. Alberta died September 1919. His third wife was Mabel Horn. They married November 10 1920. Mabel died November 1937. Sarah Stratton was his fourth wife and they married November 27, 1940. Although in the pension records Lewis says there were 4 wives, I found a possible 5th wife. I know he moved to Nebraska somewhere around 1890 and supposedly lived there the rest of his life but was never able to find him in the 1920 census. I finally found a "Lewis C. McBride" in Elkhart Indiana in the 1920 Federal Census marrried to Minnie M. Rogers. They were married in November 1919. Not sure if this is him but I think it is.

RE: Mary Whisler and William D. Wood
Hi, I rechecked the death certificates and the dates posted are from those. However, I agree both could not have been born in November of 1840, so will do more checking on this and see if I can find which is correct. Thanks for pointing the dates out to me and will try to get this resolved.

I meant to ask if you could give me the names of the kids buried in Lowville?

one of the things you can also do is try to contact the Lowville Cemetery and ask them if they can find a record of these folks. I will be happy to try and find them but no promises of course :)

Hi Laura, I read that little snippet somewhere, sorry I should have noted it , about her will and that gave me the date, so you know how books and newspaper are - it may or may not be correct, the only true source would be a photo of the marker and I couldnt get a plot number.

sorry I am of no help what so ever
