David Sutton, d. 1863 #26893556
Hello! I am curious about this memorial, which gives a death date of August 1863, but the gravestone seems to say "Feb. 1863". My ancestor, David Sutton (the photo on your memorial has also been attributed to him), died February 21 (or possibly 27) 1863, in Chickasaw County, IA (date according to probate records), but he had lived in Indiana over the years. It is just such an odd coincidence that the David Sutton buried in Heaton Cemetery would have the same death date as the one who died in IA - and who was not married to Letitia or the father of the children listed on his memorial. Probably just that, a weird coincidence, but I was wondering where the August death date came from?
All the best,

Thank You!

Thanks so much for the pictures and all the information of the individuals you have put on Find A Grave. Wonderful work. You've helped me out so much on so many memorials I'd been trying to fit in my tree. My tree would be much smaller if I hadn't connected with you.

Many thanks, Jayne

Hi Linda, Thank you for creating the memorial for the David Graham Family. Memorial #39872599, David Graham. You have a relationship err posted under his children. His wife's name,CAROLINE ADAMS, her birth and death dates are listed, as a child of his, as well as his wife.

He had four daughters:

IDA BELLE GRAHAM 1856-1871 there is scant information about Ida / ADA as she is listed in one Census

ANNA JANE GRAHAM, ONG 17 May 1858 -- 13 August 1930 Columbus, Bartholomew County, IN.

MARY ETTA GRAHAM, DITMARS 8 August 1860 -- 26 March 1937 Franklin, Johnson County, IN.

MINNIE ROBENA GRAHAM, DITMARS 31 August 1864 IN. -- 26 September 1944 Franklin County, IN.

They are distant cousins of my husband's on the ADAMS side.

Thank you for considering my edits. k.

RE: McKee family
A Charles H. McKee was my great-grandfather. His wife was Katherine Simonson McKee. They were buried at the East Hill Cemetery in Rushville, Indiana. William Simonson McKee, (William S. McKee on his tombstone) was my grandfather,although he was not listed as one of their children on Find A Grave site.
My grandfather William S. McKee and his wife (Charity Hoy McKee) had 5 children. They were: William Lowell McKee,( who died in a house fire on their farm in Orange. He was 3, I believe). Donald Robert McKee, Katherine Gerlandine McKee, Lawrence Nelson McKee (my father) and Helen Roselyn McKee. Donald Robert McKee is buried in New Lisbon, Indiana. Katherine Gerlandine McKee Monroe is buried next to her dad in Rushville. She legally changed her name to Jeri, because she was an attorney, and back in the 50's female attorneys had a hard time getting clients if people knew they were female. My father (Lawrence) is buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Cambridge City, Indiana. Only Helen is alive today. She is 91 years old. She lives in Hagerstown, Indiana. She has Parkinsons, and was diagnosed a couple of years ago. My father, Larry McKee died from complications from Parkinsons and pneumonia in 2007. He was diagnosed a couple of months before he passed away. We were not aware Parkinson disease was in the family.

I have a interesting photo of my grandfather, my grandmother,Uncle Don, Aunt Girlie, and dad taken around 1920. I you want to have a copy, I can e-mail it to you. Let me know.
My e-mail address is:

I hope this helps in your research.

RE: William Schrontz
Thank you. That's generous of you. I know there are some Find A Grave posters who don't want their photos used by others...although I wonder why they post them in the first place.

Hi, Linda
Would you please transfer Amanda Margison (95916961) and Anthony W. Margison (95916962) to me? They are my children's great-grandparents.
Thank you.

John Lewis's wife Mary died before 1810
Hi Linda, it was pointed out to me that Mary Power was not in the 1810 census, and that John Lewis married Mary Morten or Martin afterwards. There is a record of that marriage.

re: Charles C Hall at East Hill Cemetery
Thank you for the transfer.

I have attached your photo of his 2nd marker to the 1st marker page (# 40228220) and filled in the inscription info.

But, when I went to delete the 2nd marker page (# 40228221), I am getting the message that I can not delete, because I am not the original creator.

Would you like to try to delete the 2nd page (# 40228221)? It might work for you.

Thanks again,

Charles C Hall at East Hill Cemetery
Hi Linda-
I have found one individual with two markers/pages in your memorials:
- older headstone = Charles "G" Hall, Find A Grave Memorial# 40228220
- newer headstone = Charles "C" Hall, Find A Grave Memorial# 40228221

This appears to be the same Charles C Hall, son of Henry Hall & Lucy Peake, which matches the information given for him in the book "History of Rush County".

The older marker is worn and difficult to read, which might be why the memorial page contains some transcription errors (i.e. his middle initial and death date) and perhaps why the family installed a newer marker. Do you happen to know how close in proximity the 2 markers are to each other?

Anyhow, I think the best thing to do would be to add the picture for the newer marker to the page for the older marker and then to delete the page for the newer marker, per Find A Grave's policy for one page per individual.

Would you be so kind as to fix this? If not, I'd be happy to take on the management of the pages and complete this task.

Thank you and Best Wishes,

RE: Bradshaw at Oak Hill
You are most welcome. You should know that there are three problem Bradshaws where the Find A Grave dates don't match the stones or the Bartow Genweb.

Frank has 9/13/01-1/27/35. His marker and Genweb both say 8/15/1899-7/22/1900
James and Olin are similar.

Shall I post the pictures anyway? Or, I can send them to you via e-mail.

Here's the Genweb page for that area:

Imogene Leah Swallow Arnold/Mount Zion Cemetery
Hi Linda,
Thank you for providing the information about the location of Mount Zion Cemetery in Spencer County. Your time and effort in researching the correct burial place for Imogene is very much appreciated. I have moved her memorial and have linked her with her husband who is also buried there. Thanks, too, for your patience in my slow response to your message.

Curious about the listed spouse, the name listed and the name on the stone are not the same. George W Souder is the name on the stone and William L Souder is the name listed. William L Souder has a date of death of 1878, George W Souder has a date of death of 1915 on the stone
