I am wondering if you would be willing to transfer ownership of to me? I am a descendant and am actively working with the National Blue Family Association. There are also duplicate pages for her, and I could combine them.

Jennifer: I would like to ask permission to use the picture of John Q A Blue that you have published on his findagrave memorial.

I am related to him, distantly. I am of the Peters line that married into the Blue family.

Thank you in advance.

Joel McAdoo grave in Vinton Cemetery, Kansas
Jennifer, I thought that perhaps it might also be helpful to you to know that there is not an entry for Joel McAdoo in the 2002 Cemetery book of the Riley County Genealogical Society for Vinton Cemetery. Actually, that cemetery was not "walked" for the 2002 edition of the book; the information is based on two previous readings by members of the Society. There is, of course, always the possibility he was buried there and the grave was lost.

I also did a quick search of other RCGS publications and found no reference to Joel McAdoo. I did, however, find one reference Geo and Arlena (Keck)McAdoo. We could perhaps pursue that reference if it would be helpful. My Thanks, zadalew

Joel McAdoo
It appears that in the Buffalo Cemetery there is only McAdoo, an infant buried a long time ago. Maybe you try another cemetery as the people that have the records of Buffalo never heard of Joel McAdoo. I personally walked over the grounds, could not find any McAdoo. Having died in May 2011 his grave would still be fresh dirt on top. Sorry LeAry

McAdoo, Joel & Rachel
I was looking at the Vinton Cemetery records and noticed that you had entered Rachel with a photo request.
You also entered her in Buffalo, Wilson Co., and there is a photo.
She is also entered in Buffville-Verdi, Wilson Co., by someone else.
You entered Joel McAdoo in Vinton in 2008 with no dates, then in Buffalo, Wilson Co. in 2011 with the dates unknown.
Genealogy can be confusing.

I plan to visit Vinton soon and will be happy to look for the grave markers; however, I'm wondering if they are buried there.

William Howard
Hi, I went ahead and checked at Forest Hill Cemetery for William and did not find him but checked for a death certificate for Mary, his wife, and she shows to be buried at Forest Hill. I created a memorial for her, 81045572, so if you would like, I will transfer. If you feel Forest Hill is where William should be and want to transfer him, I could link him and Mary.

If you have the ability to remove the photo requests for the two McAdoo's in Vinton Cemetery you should. Two others have reported a problem with this request so I decided to double check. This is a small private cemetery with maybe only three surnames present, primarily Vinton. There are no McAdoo's here.

I am related to the above via her husband, Elias. You have her name spelled differently. I have a copy of a photo of the Headstone and it is spelled Keziah.

If you are in the area of her cemetery I was wondering if you could post photos for her and Elias. I believe that they share a headstone.

Buried in Harrison Cemetery, Wilson County, KS

Elias #384834444
Keziah # 38482929

I was also wondering if you could link the family members.
Thank you so much for your help.

Hello - I have taken photos of all the headstone at Vinton and was not able to find your photo request. I will keep my eyes open for the names while I take photos at nearby cemeteries. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Re: Mary C Prather
You have a photo request for Mary Claggett Prather
Find A Grave Memorial# 41202785 which is supposed to be located in the Prather Family Cemetery At the Baruch Prather House. I was out there today and only 2 stones remain left in the cemetery that are readable. One is Baruch Prather and the other is a Sarah Higgins Prather. All other stones have eroded over time and are smooth. This cemetery & house is located in the Raven Run Wildlife Sanctuary. No vehicles are allowed. The cemetery is about 3/4 of a mile over rough terrain from the parking area. I am sorry that I was unable to assist you. You may want to remove the photo request from the request page.

I found McAdoo today. They are buried in the section just east of the shop. They are on the east side of the section by the drive. Clarence is buried with his wife Maude Z. 1896-1984. If you would like to request her to, I will be happy to post it for you.

Hi Jennifer,

I am writing on behalf of your photo request my son claimed it but he got sick and then we have had bad weather until a few days ago we plan to search again this week end. Sorry we have not found John yet, he went up with his weather gear on, but the rain was too much and before that was the Artic cold. We wanted to let you know we have not forgot about you or John. He is Photo documenting the entire cemetery for 4-H Junior Leaders. We are sorry for the delay, but will find John.

Let's see ~ John's first wife was NOT Jerusha as that person still existed later (name misspelled in census and married to a different John Nichols). His first wife was Catharine, and they were all in the poorhouse in Center, Hancock County, IN (just down the road west from Union County...nearer Indianapolis) in the 1880 census. John's sisters Angeline and Minnie were also there.

Catharine (born in 1853) had TB so must've died without children later. Altho' Indiana has good marriage records online, I find none for John to either Catharine or his 2nd wife, Florence, whom he married in 1893 per 1900 census record when they had moved on to Joplin, Missouri. First son Chancy was born DEC1894 in Indiana; 2nd son Melvin born SEP1899 in Missouri (John had a sister Melvina who married James McGee in 1858, but they disappear from censuses after 1870 and probably died).

I've searched further back in census records and found that John's parents were not whom I'd told you before, but rather Henry (b. 1816 in [probably] Fayette/Union County ~ this is the same place as Union Co divided off from Fayette Co, IN; I've researched this place a lot as I have kin buried there) & Elizabeth (b. 1816 in TN ~ I suspect that her maiden name was Lemons because a very old man with that name lived next door to Wm Nichols, and then a very old man lived WITH Henry & Elizabeth...but sure cannot prove it nor find anything online about one Washington Lemons that was THAT old...born between 1750 & 60); and John was born in Union County, Indiana. For the two censuses his mother Elizabeth was living, 1850 & 1860, she reported your John born in 1841; when he first reported himself in 1880, he says 1843 ~ which is also the year given in the 1900 censuses when he is married to Florence.

No one has posted any info on this family in either or except I found Henry's probable brother William listed, but with no parents.

Since only heads of households were listed before the 1850 census, I cannot determine the names of all the children in the Nicholses homes of Union County, Indiana in 1830/40, but it seems Henry's father was named William (as was the probable brother mentioned above who also had a son Henry ~ very confusing as names were repeated in this family), and his grandfather (John's greatgrandfather) was named James as was also another probable uncle.

Something happened around the time of the Civil War; Henry & Elizabeth disappear from Hancock County (maybe Henry became a soldier), Henry's probable brother William appears there in the 1870 sign of your John or his family in that year, and then your John and other family are in the poorhouse as stated above in 1880. Since the 1890 census was lost in a fire, I cannot tell what was going on in that year.

The complete list of John's siblings per census records is
Melvina, 1838
(then John was 2nd)
William, 1843
Manson, 1845
Elizabeth, 1849
Angeline, 1852
Willemina/Minnie, 1856

That's everything I could possibly find...most all from census data ~ the family sure had a lot of sadness and understandably lost a lot of documentation.

Added by CryptoGram on Nov 14, 2008 9:03 AM

Yes, this family is quite confusing! But I tend to search as a game just like doing crossword puzzles &'s just fun to me.

John seems to have grown up in the Andrew and Catherine (Fosher) Nichols family in Centre, Hendricks County, Indiana; but he might actually have been their nephew as they had a son John who was born the same year (1843 by census records...your John in December of that year), but died in 1850 ~ his grave is actually posted on FindAGrave.

Your John may have been the son of Milton & Eleanor Nichols and was married three times: first to Jerusha (had children Charles in 1869 and Blanche in 1873), then to Florence with whom he had Chancy in 1894 and Melvin in 1899. On the 1910 census, John is living in Joplin, Missouri with only Chancy who is 15 and says he got married for the 3rd time in 1904.

Mattie Abernathy was 1st married to Delbert Wardlow and had Everett, Ralph, and Bill. Then she had Emma, Ray, Lourine, and Leslie (1913) with John Nichols ~ listed on the census of 1910 with them (except for not-yet-born Leslie) in Nodaway, Andrew County, Missouri and says she's *widowed*...they must've had their spats.

John seems to have gone off to do his own thing in New Mexico and died there. The cemetery has only the info previously posted as I saw his record today (they have no other records like death certificates that would be available only to family by writing the state and probably offers no additional info anyway as they did not even know his right birth year) other family is in the cemetery, and Mattie may not have even known for awhile after he died, but she never remarried.
