RE: Eben C Clark
Would you like a copy of the marriage record? They didn't have any kids together (they were both elderly). I'm not sure what the reason was to formally tie the knot, but it doesn't seem to have lasted long. I can email the record to you if you want it.

RE: Eben C Clark
The Eben I'm looking for was 65 yrs old in Sept. 1915, was a "retired merchant", his parents were Laben & Mary E (Knights) Clark, his place of birth was East Wheatland, IL, and his residence at time of marriage was Joliet, IL. (Emma was also originally from Joliet). But, their marriage was recorded in Dedham (which is where Emma lived). I'm certain this Eben Charles Clark is one and the same as your memorial #79366241. Any thoughts?

Eben C Clark
The Eben Charles Clark I'm referring to is from Illinois, and married Emma in 1915, and as stated on the marriage record in Dedham, MA, his parents were Laben & Mary (Knights) Clark. I'm pretty sure that is the same one....

Question about Eben C Clark
Hi, I was wondering if you might know anything about the last 10 years of Eben's life. My research has him marrying Emma E (Ranney) Van Ham in Dedham, MA on 14 Sep 1915, but on the 1920 Federal Census, she is listed as Emma Clark, but marital status says "widow". Eben didn't die until 1925, but Emma was a widow (and so was Eben) before marrying, so maybe it was a mistake by the original enumerator or miscommunication by whoever supplied the info at the time of record. I have been unable to locate any death or burial info for Emma, but she was still living in Dedham, MA in 1940. So, I was wondering if you know any more information regarding their late, elderly marriage and what happened afterward? Thanks.

You're welcome. We were acquainted with Dora back in the 1960's and have several scrapbooks with obits etc on many people. I'm working on getting as many obits in as I can.

Joseph Kelley #38087573
Hello SM,
Are you a descendant of Joseph Kelley? Do you have any proof that he was the son of Azariah Kelley? They lived next door to each other in one of the Censuses. That's all we've come up with. Do you know anything as to who Edward Kelley's parents were? I, of course, maintain the Memorials on 'Find A Grave' for Joseph, David Kelley and their wives, among others. Maybe we're distant cousins. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Hello SM,
May I inquire as to whether and how you are related to David Sanderson Kelley? He is my 2nd great uncle. You left flowers on his Memorial. Maybe we can exchange Family Lineage. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
Ken Kelly,

Thanks, Shannell, I remember you now. I am trying to find out who has the roster of FLH's volunteer regiment, or who know's it's source. It's always nice on Ancestry to have sources.

RE: Fenner
Would you happen to know if this Fenner was related to Edward Fenner who was a chief of police in Troy PA? He was killed in the line of duty in 1905.

Thanks for your reply; glad I could help. I wonder if there are any records from the Iowa Veterans Home extant that you could access.

I added a photo to his memorial of a roster book of his CW unit that was sent to me. It tells of his demise. Please let me know if you think it appropriate.

Traci's Mom
Token you left for Traci Fields
Thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!

This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.

Thanks for the update for Esther Broscoff. She is my great aunt too through marriage to Uncle Oley, who was my grandpa's brother. Any chance you have their wedding date? If so, I will be glad to add that as well. Thanks much
