RE: Hettie Endsley & Isaac Christopher
Cemetery Records:
Christopher, Hettie B. Endsley 1/28/1905 - 12/7/1934

Christopher, Isaac Newton 12/7/1856 - 4/11/1930

The 1900 Census record is often off as to either month or year - I have found that a lot with my family.

Your tombstone photo gives Isaac's birth year as 1856

Census records can give you a ball park figure, but are not to be taken as fact.

With the cemetery records, it may be that a "1" was dropped on Hattie's birth - or maybe not.

My name is Don Sheaffer and I may have information about Jacob's wives family. Since I don't know if she was an ancestor, you may not be interested. It appears she was named after her aunt.

Gertrude Fleming Rundell
Hi Rose Mary, I noticed you left a cross and roses on Gertrude's page. I was wondering if you are a relative of hers? My great grandmother was hired as a nanny to take care of her son John Leslie "Bud" Rundell since she died at such a young age. Later, she fell in love with his father, Jay Ralph Rundell. I don't have any photos of her, but have several of uncle Bud as a young child and grown man.

Kitty Susca Writes you....
Dear Rose Mary,
I wanted to write last week,when I was leaving a memorial and noticed this BEAUTIFUL series of little kids you left on a gravesite.I didnt get to say anthing because one of my own kids distracted me.But tonight,I was leaving another memorial,for Donald Arthur "Donnie" DeLapp Jr.and I saw ANOTHER series you had left,this time with angels.I want to tell you how beautiful I think it is that you collect the series of pictures and then line them up.I do it too and it really is an art.I left such a series for Donnie,altho smaller.But I also try to match colors,or leave a memorial that is a continuation of color or however else I can do it.I always read about the person and try to leave something appropriate. BUt you are the real master.Even tho I know how to pick up memorials that are left by other people,I never pick up yours,because they are so unique and thoughtful,they belong to only you.THankyou for being such a COOL person.

Re; Beatrice Mae (Ritenour) Swinhoe

Thanks for uploading her obituary on her memorial.. Now, not only do I have a few suspicions confirmed about her extended family, but I have a real good lead on locating a few I simply could not find!... This is just GREAT!... I'm still doing construction on her memorial, so it looks a little messy now... I'll get it organized and correct shortly! :-D

Re: Beatrice

If you found a stone in Mount Washington Cemetery in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania with Arthur H. Swinhoe on it and Beatrice also on stone with no death date for her on it, then how is it that she is buried at Lake Park Cemetery in Ohio?... Did you find her stone in Ohio??... I'm guessing that she and Arthur may have planned for her to be laid beside him but since she passed in Ohio, this was not the outcome?... I don't like seeing when things like this happen, but I see it all the time. I am a firm believer that final arrangements for the deceased should curb to their wishes, especially if they went to the length of purchasing a plot with their names etched in stone upon it. It is a sad revelation when such services turn out to be more for the living with no regard to what the deceased wanted. Then again, there's no guarantee that she ever told anyone. Although we know that no one can outrun it, people never expect to die suddenly... Yet it happens all the time. :-(

Again, thanks for the info and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Re; Beatrice Mae (Ritenour) Swinhoe

Thank you for posting the info on Beatrice's memorial. I did look it up and found that Beatrice M. Swinhoe, born abt. 1900, passed away in Youngstown, Mahoning County, Ohio on 1 Jun 1988. She was a widow at the time of her passing. I will continue to research to see if I can find the name of her previously deceased spouse... I added the info you provided. Again, thank you very much.. And Merry Christmas!

While in here, I noticed that you left flowers on my Grandparent's grave (Fred and Gladys Wood, Pend Orielle County, Washington State... While searching for my Grandfather's brother in Ohio, I noticed that you left flowers on Oscar Wood's grave. Is there a connection? If so, where do you get your information? My grandfather did have two brothers, Oscar and Charles and a sister, Mary (married name Crooks) in Bandon, Oregon. I have some information as well as pictures that I would love to share/add! Thank you for your time.

Sorry to bother you ... I'll take care of this. I see what happened. I have the worst headache and I don't have the patience in the short time I have been here now due to so many people being unkind about transfers and edits when I have knowledge and the truth. My families markers, many are incorrect and much of the census information is way off which gets posted by so many people. This person should accept my edit. Thanks~

Frye Family
You left a flower a long time ago for Kent Frye #73016989 and related links. I am not related are you? This is most bizarre. The marker has one death day, month and year (like what we usually see on infant markers). The memorial only lists a birth and death year. The birth and death years are 100 years apart. This places the individual born before their linked parents. If you are not related I will handle it. Let me know ~

Thanks ~
