Dingle Cemetery
The reason I took all of the photos of the Dingle Cemetery is because my great great uncle is buried there and I couldn't find a picture of his stone on Find A Grave. A lot of my family is buried there and I didn't even know it until I took the pictures. William Henry Bird and Mary Ann Sparks are my great great Uncle and Aunt. Then I found my great aunt and uncle, William Perry Nowland and Edith Georgina Bird Nowland. So...yes, I am related to several in the Dingle Cemetery.

Transfer of Management
I transferred the whole family to you. Are there any others in the Dingle Cemetery that I added and you would like to manage? I spent one whole Sunday taking pictures of the entire cemetery and then adding them to Find A Grave. It was a wonderful experience.

I noticed someone had just recently added another memorial for Helen. You might want to ask them to transfer it to you too. That way you can combine them and there will only be one.

Glad I could transfer them to you. Darcey

history - Wells
It was in the archives of the Willow Creek DUP, I don't know which grand daughter wrote it, but the official cemetery records also say he was buried in Hamilton Co. Iowa.

Cheryl Ann Aven
I will be happy to transfer Cheryl, Sherry.... by the way, did that "Tami" ever respond about the burial of Jonathan Sawyer Wells?

I keep the death records for Willard Cemetery and had linked his actual memorial burial in Iowa to Margaret Gardner Wells. I got no response from her so I finally left the history on her page and then left flower messages on both memorial explaining that the one in Willard is a cenotaph (look at the stone -"Died in Iowa")

Sorry for the misspell on Cheryl's name - it was wrong on the death record.
Cheers~ Shirleen

History written by grandaughter
They had come to make their homes, to till the soil and become permanent citizens. The members of the party were: Johnathan Wells and his wife Margaret Gardner, and their children Otis Nathaniel, Erastus Nelson, Hulda Mariah, Sarah Matilda, Julia Ann and Judah Smith Wells. Also with them was Johnathan's oldest son Lyman and his wife Bethia and small son Mortimer - along with the oldest daughter, Samantha, and her husband John Memory McCrary and their small son William Austin. With them were Elisha Mallory and wife Mary, Mary Ann Yearsley, her son Nathaniel and a young man who lived in her home. The last three named did not remain long, but moved back to Ogden. The morning after their arrival, the men went into the Willard Mountain and brought down logs to build some houses. They all worked together, in what they called "house raising." The houses had no floors, windows or fireplaces. The roofs were made of split logs with dirt piled over them, and when it rained, mud trickled down the walls." The first two homes were built for the two young couples who were expecting babies. Elisha Mallory's first and then the young McCrary's (Samantha). The cooking was done outside. The babies were washed out of doors, as it was warmer outside than in. Soap to wash the babies was made in a frying pan. Immediately claims were laid out and crops were planted. A school house was built and it was also their church and place of amusement. Johnathan and Margaret's youngest daughter Margaret Ann was born on June 11, 1851 in Ogden where Grandma had gone for this event. This Wells family lived in Willard for fifteen years, and then were sent north to settle Deweyville. Grandpa Wells was a Seventy in the priesthood. He was a bishop's counselor. He was justice of the peace. He was a veteran Indian fighter. He was a builder of communities, an honest, energetic, good man, an honored and revered father, a devoted husband. Early in 1866 Grandpa and Grandma returned to visit Iowa. A year and a half later Grandpa Johnathan Sawyer Wells died there, in Harrison County, on the 27th of July 1867. Grandma Margaret Gardner Wells had to make the trip back home without him. Grandma died in their home in Deweyville on October 5, 1878.

Jonathan Sawyer Wells
Hello Sherry: Did you ever hear from the below named "Tami"? I have sent the same question to her - Wells was buried in Indian Territory at Harrison, Iowa while on a mission. The stone is a cenotaph.
Please let me know if she responded. Thanks ~ Shirleen [history4sure]

Do you have a document or source that says he was buried in Iowa?

Your Cousin

This is Jared, your cousin. I am just getting hooked on family history. I think we should compare notes so I don't waste time digging up what you have found and visa versa.

Bennington Cemetery
I truly appreciate your effort in getting this photo. It is for Rebecca June Parker Martineau, who is not my relative. The one I was actually looking for was Rebecca Jensen, 1858-1936, married to William Joel Lindsay. Who knows, maybe I got the wrong information as to her burial place. Thanks anyway!

grave management

I was wondering if there is a way to transfer the management of the graves I entered, to you. I took them from the family history center geneology records and entered them just as a service while I was working there. Now I am moving. At the least, I would like to turn your ancestors over to you. What do you think?

RE: Thomas Brown
Thank you very much for the pictures. And also for getting them so quickly.

As far as I know, I do not have a Thomas Dell Brown in my family. I will take another look at my records to make sure. But as of now it is not necessary. If I find out otherwise, I can make another request later as there are many volunteers in your area. :)
