James Hoisington
No, I called the neighbor who owns the property and asked her if she knew. Not too much sleuthing involved. Now to research James Hoisington!

RE: Old headstone
I called the historical society yesterday and their genealogy stuff is in storage until their grand opening mid-April. If their were possibly james' here in Ames at one point that is definitely something! I don't know how much more I can find until next month. I'll let you know!

RE: Old headstone
As far as 19814, that address does not exist currently on my road. Brawley Rd in Ames is about 2 miles long. Most of the houses are in the first mile and a half. "Old Brawley" and the current edition are two different roads and I've yet to trace the whole road back. It may disappear in some spots. The old remains of a house in the woods are hard to understand how someone got there but I guess no cars changes things too! Providing we don't get too much snow I intend to go to the historical society tomorrow and see if they can help identify anything for me. As far as wether or not this is a Brawley, I don't know. It could be a first or last name tho it would be strange if there was a James from Bern all alone in the forest in Ames!! I wondered if it could be a baby? It's quite a ways from the old house but possible the they are from the same people. We found some bottles at the house: an old tinning fluid bottle from the 1920-30s a ball jar (broken) patented 1858 and a broken platter with a family crest on the bottom but it is chipped. You can only make out "bone china" and "England". So I'm not sure how long that house was occupied. At least two different time period bricks for the chimney, even an Athens block print down there but I don't know when Athens block began. I will keep you informed on what I find out. I would think that is old Brawley property back there just based on location but I will know more tomorrow.
Thanks for your time Anita!

Allan Eddy/Sophia Beardsley
Thanks so much for the info on Sophia! I've updated Fred Eddy's bio (#156599011). I noticed Allan's dates on Sophia's memorial- do you have more info on the Eddys? There's a rather strange Eddy monument (no names, no dates) in the Whitney Cemetery that I'd assumed was for Allen & his second wife Harriet but as I had no death info for either I was uncertain about creating memorials for them. Send me a message via email if you have a chance with any further details. Thanks, Joe.

Old headstone
Hi Anita,
I live on Brawley in a very old cabin and walking in the woods behind my house I came across a very old headstone. I can't make much out on it except the name James. As you walk deeper in the woods there is a very old homestead with the sandstone hearth stil standing and the brick chimney on the ground. We are trying to find out more about the grave and I wondered if you knew anything about it.

your email

Their suggestion:
Hi Susanna,
I'm not sure what happened, but I sent a spouse link on Mamie Chatovich #127681514. I checked today to see the link and saw that Mamie is linked to Patrick Harrington #124595707. Maybe you know something about the marriage -- but I was not aware that Mamie was married to anyone other than Samuel Chatovich #124693707.

Should I do an edit to the creator of Mamie's memorial or is this something you can do?
I appreciate your dedication to all the work you do on this very valuable work.
Thank you for your time. Anita Brawley

*The auto update would change it to what ever you sent? Maybe you had the wrong number? Send new edit with correct info.

Hi Anita - Thank you so much for the compliment. I love what I do on FindaGrave. As for Mildred I did take off the incorrect link and linked James which I confirmed is her husband. I appreciate you catching that. Take care - Cindy

The photo is from his passport application. It would be wonderful to have his descendants see this photo. Please share it with them. His daughter Catherine Maydelle married my husband's great-uncle Allan Farlow.

Edward D. McCreery in Maumee Cemetery
Hi Anita,
The listing for Edward is correct. Another person uploaded a photo of Edward C. McCreery by mistake. If you scroll down, you'll see the correct photo for Edward D. McCreery. I cannot remove the incorrect photo. Only the person who uploaded it can removed.

Thank you for sending the information explaining the family relationships and reinterrments. I updated their pages but was unable to locate their daughter May. Perhaps she has not been entered yet. I'll keep an eye open for her!
Thanks again!

RE: Tinkers Creek Cemetery
Interested in the next message that seems to indicate you were looking for Peter Crosson. Is this Peter Crosson of Kane, PA? If so this is a direct ancestor of mine and I have pretty detailed info on the Crosson family. Was in touch with a Crosson relative in NY a few years back.

Tinkers Creek Cemetery
We are trying to locate descendents of those buried in Tinkers Creek. We are trying to get the cemetery on the national register of historic sites. Please contact me at for more information.
Also am revising and updating the Independence Township Cemetery book and notice I have no Minors listed in the 2009 edition. Who do you have buried there and dates and brief bio of your ancestors. Eventually we want to have headstones for everyone who was buried there.

Please contact me.
