RE: Transfer of Awilda Adams
Bad Find A Grave, bad program !

Seriously, that's interesting. Find A grave was acting up a little bit last night--very slow. Maybe too many genealogists working on the holiday weekend.

It's not unusual for me to put in the wrong memorial and member numbers, so I double-checked my e-mail and they were right.

In the hope that it was a temporary glitch, would you mind trying one more time? If that fails, I'll contact the admins.

For reference--
Memorial to transfer-- 28500936

Here is her first husb. She was not mar to William Aaron Lawson. Her first husb whom she divorced was Henry Lawson Memorial# 164037748. We have discussed this on Ancestry you and I.

I don't know if you are the one who linked her up to this William Aaron Lawson or not but he is not or was never her husb. I don't know who he is or who he married or anything about him. Seems he was not in Indiana. It seems that people are confusing him with William Arthur Lawson who was born in OH and died in Madison Co IN and was married to Margaret Manis first and 2nd to Elizabeth Ella (Lyons) Hunter. Her death cert says Ella Lawson (but it is bel her full name is Elizabeth Ella Lyons but no proof yet on that). This Ella is but in Brookside Cem Lapel Madison Co IN with her first husb William R. Hunter.

If you can call Holy Cross Cemetery @ (310)836-5500 for the grave location I will get the photo for you! Do not email because they will not reply. I would call for you but since I am probably the only regular active volunteer there I have made many many calls to them for locations and they are very annoyed with me. Please send it to my member page as I go 2 times a week. James

I usually just add info from my family tree to find a grave. I'm guessing I tried to add info to one of yours?

John & Nancy Hester death
The bio reads that he married 3 times. I'm a trustee at cemetery and trying to determine if his 3rd wf, Nancy is buried adjacent to him in an unmarked grave. Am unable to find census info to determine if there are other children, by other wives. Would appreciate any info you can provide about the Hester's. Thank you.

RE: Ellis
Hi Dave,
my email is
I'm under Abraham's son Isaac, his daughter Sarah Ann, etc.
I'm waiting for several death certificates, then I'll be ready to send in my application to DAR.
We have a great resource in a book called The Ellis Family by K. Foos, ca 1900 - details Abraham Ellis family history and lineage.

Thanks Dave

RE: Ellis
Hi Dave,
I can't find my requests on the site, but I think one was regarding my 2nd g/gmother, Lydia J. Severs, Find a Grave Memorial #49993057, the other was concerning my 1st g/gmother Arvilla L. Miller, Find A Grave Memorial # 79656008.
I am gathering information for an application to DAR on ancestor Lt. Abraham Ellis. I have the family tree/lineage on I saw on your FB page that your daughter(s) are members of DAR, just wondering who your A.R.W. ancestor is? Perhaps we have some ancestors in common.

John William Bashore, Find A Grave Memorial# 161272706
PLEASE remove this memorial as it is incorrect. I do not know if you are related to John, but my husband is his descendant and tracking John has been one of my obsessions. The death date of 16 May 1900 is commonly reported but that was pretty much the date he disappeared from Clinton County--maybe the date he was "dead" to his family. Local newspapers in May and June of 1900 reported that he had gone to Missouri and Oklahoma--would they have done that if he was dead and buried in New Antioch? His wife divorced him in 1903--so if he was dead, his wife and the judge were unaware of it. He was declared legally dead in May 1916 so that his sister's estate could be settled (so John's children could inherit his portion). If you have a document showing his date of death or burial records from New Antioch, I would love to see them. If you wish to see any of the documentation I have, I would be happy to share them with you. But PLEASE stop perpetuating this myth that John William Bashore died 16 May 1900 and is buried in New Antioch. Thank you.
Mary Lou Inwood,

Clara May Williams and Asa Starbuck
Hi. You created an entry for Clara Starbuck, saying she is buried in Highland Cemetery in New Castle. This memorial number is 143272559. There's also a memorial for Asa Starbuck, #143272325 Both Clara and Asa are buried in Rose Hill cemetery in Rifle, Colorado, where I created memorials for them which include photos of their tombstones. It would presumably be useful for you to delete the memorials you created for them in Highland Cemetery. Thanks.

You posted a photo to this listing - the listing is for a woman Rosa Manning McCloud. The picture is of a sailor. No relation to me, but it might be on the wrong listing.

Perhaps John Dwight had a twin - or, the date of death is wrong in your records. Either way - let me know and I'll forward the pic along.

I'm happy to send the pic along if you'd like.

Child of Wm and Sabra
Hi Dave, I noticed that you have a pretty extensive listing of Wm and Sabra Hester's children, but while I was taking photo's in Payton cemetery in Van Meter, I noticed a stone - it looks like it had been broken off, and the inscription left on it is,
"Wm & Sabra Hester
Born June 21 1884
Died Feb 16 1890."

Could they have had another child that you dont have listed on their memorial page?

Dave, I just uploaded a headstone picture for Olive Hester. The year of death is different than what you have on her page. I went ahead and uploaded it because her husbands info is correct. Please let me know if I was correct in doing so.
