Find A Grave Memorial# 157486758

Some one has mistakenly assumed that the Joseph and Rebecca Showalter Parks buried in the Elliot cemetery, Livingston County, Missouri are Joseph and Rebecca Beigh Park. There is a Joseph Maxwell and Rebecca Beigh Park from Ohio. Our Joseph and Rebecca are from Pennsylvania and moved to Indiana and then to Missouri where they died. You can follow both families on the Federal census' in each of their home states. Joseph Maxwell Park died 1 Mar 1864 and is buried in Nashville National Cemetery. Rebecca died in 1899 in Ohio.
Isophine Park Shingogle is the daughter of the Pennsylvania Joseph and Rebecca Showalter Park. This Joseph's parents are Joseph Park (d. 1838 buried in Isaac Grove Farm, Horseknob, Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania) and Anne Beaver (d.1863 buried White Church, Grafton, Pennsylvania).

Mable Josephine (Orebaugh) McCaslin
Just wanted to say "Thank so much!" for your memorial #148508868. My grandfather's 2nd cousin, Willis H McCaslin showed up in the 1930 and 1940 census married to a "Josephine", but it would have taken much more trouble than it was worth to me to find out more about her. They had no children, so it's not like any descendants were going to ever figure it out.

Willis apparently returned to New Castle, PA after Josephine died. That was where his parents were from and where he grew up (he was born in KS, but moved there when he was 2). He died in 1946, and is buried there with his parents, which is undoubtedly why his death date was never updated on this marker. Thanks for the photo, too!!

RE: Margaret
Have you taken a DNA test? I have and I have been linked to some of Tobias Phillips legitimate kids. For years I was hopefull that Tobias wasn't the father of her kids but the DNA test results say it's true.

Hi Bob my name is Aaron Lawrence and I'm also a direct "Lawrence" dissident of Margaret Peggy Lawrence. It's nice to know there is another out there.

Ann W. Irelan
Hi Bob,
You and others on suggest that Ann passed away on Sept. 30 but the obituary indicates Oct. 1. Due to the discrepancy I only listed the year.

RE: Aaron Smith Bayne
Many of the stones that old are practically indecipherable. I was hopeful though since you apparently could read the inscription along with the personal information. I will contact the church there and see who manages the property.

Aaron Smith Bayne, Find A Grave # 83126294

I am new looking around for graves, I would like to find the gravesite of Aaron Smith Bayne, he is buried in the Hammondsville Cemetery in Kentucky. Can you give me advice on if anyone would have a record of the location of the grave in that cemetery? I found the cemetery but not his grave.

RE: Lovina Burba Wood
what prove does she have? i haven't been able to find anything. since i haven't been able to find anything on her or my gg.grandfather, Ichabod, i they could be buried on the farm cemetery where ggg.father Solomon is buried.

the lady that had the farm said she remembers a small cemetery there, but her father told it down because it was in the middle his field. she only remembers, Solomon Wood, because, i believe, it was on his stone struck by lightening. she was abt 100 when she allowed a marker to be put by the road across where she remembers the tombstone to be.

Ray Vick
Ida Rhoades Killian
I am questioning the 1910 census showing her with daughters Anna age 5 and Ora age 3, also with son Harvy (sic) age 15, all surnamed Cluster.

I suspect Anna and Ora were not her daughters or the daughter of Michael Cluster. I suspect they are adopted from William Elmer and Cora Taylor; but am quite confused about how that might have happened.

I know Harvey was a Killen not a Cluster.

After Ida's death Michael married widow Lillian Virginia Taylor nee Powell who was married to Michael by 1915 and by 1920 is shown living with Anna and Ora (Cluster?) and Virgnia's step-son Earl Taylor in Center, Woodson, KS where Virginia had lived with her first husband Jacob Andrew Taylor until his death in 1913. What was Michael Cluster's connection to Center, Woodson, KS?

Paula Walsh
Baltimore Cemetery
Hi Bob, I am from Farmer City, IL and recently visited Baltimore Cemetery in Cowley Co. KS. I was specifically looking for the headstone of China Baldwin, of which I see you added a photo to her memorial on Find A Grave. I was very disappointed to find that none of the stones remained and had been replaced by concrete stones with numbers, no names. Would you by chance know what happened to the original stones? I'm really interest in finding if they are being preserved somewhere or if they were destroyed. Thank you for any help!!

RE: Frank & Kathrina Baldauf
You are welcome. Checked again when we went to pick up our flowers after Memorial Day. Don't know how I missed it the first time, but was glad I finally found it.

RE: John H. Bauldauf
I was unable to find the tombstone for Frank & Katrina Baldauf. Will try and get in touch with the cemetery to see if there is a stone.

James Sherrick obit
Hi Bob, I found this obituary, dated Dec. 17, 1954. and was hoping that you might want to add that information into your memorial for him. My grandmother was related to the Kirk's and Sherrick's.

James Sherrick, 69, died Tuesday in Dodge City. He was born in Missouri and had lived in Eureka, CA for the past few months. Before his retirement he was a blacksmith. Besides his son he is survived by his wife, Myrtle, two daughters, Mrs. James English of Fresno, Mrs. Virginia Bagley of Illinois, a brother, Andy Sherrick of Eureka and several brothers and sisters in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Funeral services will be held today in Dodge City.
