RE: Sarah Jane McCartney Gish
The answer is not as simple as the question. We have a tree online with

EVERY person in the tree can be traced back to " the first in the family to arrive in the US. BLOOD LINES go back into the 1100's

This is my wifes ( Carroll ) side of the family. Her mother's maiden name is Clark.
Carroll's Cousin, Andrew Clark b1880 married Etta Littrell b1885,
Etta's father Judge William Littell b1838 married Emma Heather Gish b1844
Emma is Joe Gish and Sarah's Child. Making Sarah the grandmother to her (Carrolls ) 2nd cousin.

I have been a Find a Grave member for about 10 years.

RE: Mary Ann Partridge Boucher
I often wondered how Josiah married Mary Ann. He had been in CA for some time and they had gotten some wealth mining for gold which they used to buy property. At that time, there must not have been many women there. His brother married a women from back home in PA. Both Josiah and David Boucher helped write the first constitution for the new state of CA. The ended up having very sad lifes though. David's wife and daughter were killed at the hand's of the daughter's husband. Money doesn't buy happiness!!

Mary Ann Partridge Boucher
Thank you so much for this information. I had no idea that she lived so long after Josiah died. Josiah was my great grandfather's brother. I looked for Mary Ann in Indiana, but assumed that she had preceded her husband in death. He had been returned to CA to be buried and I found Creed Boucher living with a non-relative. I have been in contact with relatives of his, but they didn't seem to know about Mary Ann.

I appreciate your help.

I see that you show Mary Ann Partridge as the sister. I show Mary Ann dying before 1941. I do not have her exact date, but her son went to live with a family in IN in the early 1900s after his father died. Do you know anything more about the Partridge sisters??

Thanks for any insight.

RE: William & Charles McCartney
No problem! They were on BillionGraves with some others who also had photo request on Find a Grave. Figured I'd help out and get the photo request number down.

RE: Frank Bailey
Thank you for teaching me something today John McCartney. I never realized what the 49ers were, but I do now AND I know why that's the name of the football team.
So I believe I may have found Benjamin Franklin - Find A Grave Memorial# 51547147
Notice two stones with conflicting birth dates. I'm going to keep digging but I hope that is a great beginning for you. Benjamin's wife's name was Emma as well, and their son Francis.

If you have more information about him and his family members, I'll do some looking around over here (Southern Maryland) and see what I can find for you.

I was unable to find a headstone and the Cemetery Transcription page had no record of him, but I found this on the map of all graves. Frank is in the lower right.
I will look again for a headstone during my next visit there.

RE: Genevieve & James Osborn
My mother/daughter vacation was going to be at our cabin on the Trinity River. I printed off requests for both French Gulch and Weaverville cemeteries and were very lucky. Most of the names were found.

Someone helped me getting a photo from Yell Co. Arkansas (my great great grandfather), so just helping someone else.

Bowls family in Drummond, Mt
Hi John,
I have added a number of Bowls family members in the Valley Cemetery near Drummond, MT. If you are related or know anything about them let me know & I will transfer. I spelled the name Bowls as it appears on the headstone but feel free to change any you take over. There is also a Katherine (Rowls) Weaver. I have not come across the name Rowls in our area and am wondering if the engraver mistook the 'B' for an 'R'. Could her maiden name actually be Bowls? Any info you might have would be appreciated.
Thanks, Barb

RE: Bowls, Bowles family
Yes, deciding how to spell names is always a challenge. I photographed a Larsen and right next to that stone was the father's stone spelled Larson. One of the many challenges for genealogists!

John L Williams
No problem, I looked a few times, there are 60+ John Williams listed but none of them died in 1925 and none are buried in Sierra Lawn.

re: Caldwell family
I am helping a DAR sister look up info about her father's family = the Caldwells. She is a daughter to Guy Milton Caldwell, and a granddaughter to Charles Julius. Can you point me to where she should look for more info on Tarlton Caldwell? I found Charles Julius' death certificate on Missouri Digital Heritage and lists his birthplace as Vinton, Iowa. Have you done any research in Iowa yet? I will help how I can = I live near a major genealogy library in the KC.MO area.

BTW, I imaged Virginia's marker and posted it to findagrave.

Harry Stewart at Evergreen Cemetery, Colorado Springs
Hi John- I found the plot where Harry Stewart is buried. Unfortunately, there is no stone for him, although there is for a Virginia Stewart who I assume is his wife. The cemetery also said there is a grave behind where Harry is buried, which is a Wiley Steward. I am not sure whether this is a related person. If you're interested, you can see the proximity of the graves on the Evergreen website ( Just search for Harry, then go to "Click for Map." The grave is on the north side of the block.
