RE: 49142097 Bennie Edward Willbanks
Hello! I just wanted to touch base and see if you might be going out to photograph markers soon? I'm still hopeful of getting a photo of a marker for Bennie Willbanks (if there is one).

Thank you, and I hope you're doing well.

That's great. Who is your Great Grandmother? She would be a sister to my Grandmother then.

RE: Frona Katherine Thomas Brown
Thank you for getting back to me. I can't remember if I got back to you on what I found. I was in Springfield, Greene, Missouri a couple of weeks ago and found the Death Notice of Frona K. Brown, which confirmed she was cremated (I set up a Find A Grave memorial in her name). I also located the obituary of her father, Charles Byron Leroy Thomas. I am not related to Edward, rather, Frona was my 1st cousin 1x removed. Her father was my grand uncle. The mother of Frona was Ruby L. Jones; however, she was raised by Charles and Bertha Thomas.

Edward Burnell Brown Find A Grave #37873212

Hi Dana, Edward Brown was married to my 1st cousin 1x removed. Do you know if she was also cremated upon her death? Her father Charles Byron Leroy Thomas was my great uncle. Charles was an older brother to Arthur Noble Thomas, who was my grandfather. It appears Charles had a child out of wedlock, as Frona's mother was Ruby L. Jones. Charles was married to Bertha and evidence tells me Charles and Bertha raised Frona to adulthood. Charles died in 1942 and I was born in 1943, so I never met him. Are you and I related?

49142097 Bennie Edward Willbanks
Hello! I saw that you had posted a photo for another memorial in New Hope cemetery, and I was wondering if you might be so kind as to see if there's a marker for Bennie Edward Willbanks, also buried in New Hope. I did put in a photo request, but it has not been claimed. My request shows I submitted it in March this year; I have actually submitted requests for it earlier than that. I have removed the request and resubmitted it a couple of times, due to no claims on it, hoping for new eyes to see it.

If you could help me with this, I would be very grateful. Bennie is my half second great-uncle.

Thank you!

Hello Dana,
Could you take an updated photo of Ralph & Geraldine's combined headstone and save it to both of their profiles? Since you took the original for Ralph's memorial, I think you ought to have the opportunity to be credited with the update ;)

Thank you,

How are you doing? Haven't heard from you for a very long time.I hope everything is alright. I was
looking at the memorial you put in for Scharlotta & noticed that you hadn't put in her mama. Her name is Amanda Davis. Thought you would like to add her.Altho her & her second husband are buried in a tiny cemetery in Ozark County, Mo.The cemetery really has no name other than being called Little Cemetery.

Anna and Abraham Wilbur
Hello Dana,

Thank you so much for updating the marriage info for Anna and Abraham. There has been so much confusion about Anna's identity and just about everyone on Ancestry has it wrong. Hopefully we have cleared up some of the confusion. Bob Saunders did a nice chalking of the two headstones if you want to see them.

Thank you so much for creating these memorials, how are you related to them? Is there any chance you would transfer the management of these two memorials to me? I'm going to continue to research them and don't want to bug you with changes and updates.

RE: Anna ARNOLD vs. Anna Lockwood ARNOLD & Charcoal Furnaces
According to what Bob Saunders found and the book, "Charcoal Furnaces of Hanging Rock", both Abraham & Anna ARNOLD WILBUR are buried in the Lincoln Furnace Cemetery in Jackson County. Thanks for all your help Dana! The mystery is solved. :)

Anna ARNOLD vs. Anna Lockwood ARNOLD & Charcoal Furnaces
Dana, I am the individual who wrote to you and requested removal of the name "Lockwood" from Anna Arnold, who is married to Abraham Wilbur. Thank you for doing so. I am happy to share the research I gathered that proves they are two different women.

I also located a digitized version of the book, "Hanging Rock Iron Region of Ohio: An Authentic Narrative of the Past, with an Extended Survey of the Industrial and Commercial Development", authored by Eugene B. Willard, Daniel. W. Williams, George O. Newman & Charles B. Taylor, published in 1916, which is a 1340 page, 48,335KB pdf document. This book is a narrative incorporating West Virginia, Kentucky & Ohio containing a wealth of historical information on those areas.

I also created a pdf of the book "Charcoal Furnaces of Hanging Rock", authored by Virgil & Marguerite Ramsey, published in 1989, which is a 93 page, 19,903KB pdf document. This book gives information concerning the charcoal furnaces of southeastern Ohio and northeaster Kentucky, most of which were out of operation by 1900. Information from gravestones during the furnace era are included, along with an index.

RE: Abraham and Anna Arnold Wilbur
Hi Dana,

It's so good to hear from you. You will also need to remove Joseph and Deborah Hacker Arnold as the parents, they are Anna Lockwood Arnold's parents.

Thanks so much, we are still trying to verify the cemetery. There is no Paine Cemetery in Hamden, but a volunteer went to the Lincoln Cemetery where it was published in a book that they were buried and he didn't see their headstones. I sent him pictures of the headstones so he is going to go back and try again.

He said that the Bundy-Paine Cemetery in Wellston is well documented and that the Anna and Abraham Arnold Wilbur are not listed there.

The mystery continues, thanks for your help!

Anna Arnold Wilbur
Hello, I am researching my 3rd great grandmother, Anna Arnold Wilbur and am confused with the information you show for her parents. There is an Anna Lockwood Arnold who I thought was my grandmother, but she has a different date of birth (dob) and date of death (dod).

The two Anna's were both born in Providence, RI, but my grandmother came to Ohio while the other Anna stayed in Rhode Island. I am comfortable with the dob and dod, now I need to find out why they both show the same parents. Do you have any documentation showing that Joseph and Deborah Arnold were the parents of Anna Arnold Wilbur? It would be so helpful to have that information. Thank you so much, I look forward to hearing from you.

"Paine Cemetery" in Ohio
Hi Dana,

I came across some information that may be helpful concerning the "Paine Cemetery". According to the book, "Charcoal Furnaces of Hanging Rock", Abraham WILBUR (Find A Grave Memorial# 34130740) & Anna ARNOLD WILBUR (Find A Grave Memorial# 34130772) were buried in the Lincoln Furnace Cemetery of Milton Township, Jackson County, Ohio. I don't know if Paine Cemetery and the Lincoln Furnace Cemetery are one and the same called by different names, but I wanted to share what I found to day as I was researching in the Salt Lake City Genealogy Library. I emailed copies of the pages from the book and created one attachment with all the pages. I hope this helps answer any questions concerning this cemetery. Let me know if this was helpful or not.

Anna Lockwood Arnold Wilbur
Hello, I can't remember if I have contacted you about this before, please bare with me.

I am researching Anna Lockwood Arnold Wilbur, my 3rd great grandmother and am having a huge problem so I am reaching out to whoever I can to see if I can get some help.

Anna Lockwood Arnold is on Find a Grave twice. She has the same parents, same birthplace but different husbands and children! I can't figure it out.

Do you know where you got your info to post her memorial #34130772? Her other memorial is #31100356. I contacted the creator of the other memorial and he said he didn't know any different than what he posted.

The other thing that I noticed is that the dates of birth and death are slightly different.

Would you mind looking at these two memorials and let me know what you think? Thanks so much!
