Hi Carla,

Per your comment; "Mary's mother link fell through though since that lady died a year before Mary was born."

From what I can see, Mary was born in 1857. Her mother, Sarah, #33894486 died in 1866 when Mary was roughly 9 years of age. Are my eyes playing tricks on me?

Thanks in advance for taking another look. Have a good weekend.

Carla, There should be another update for Loretta's memorial. Find A Grave changed some things around and on your bio page, at the top, there is an "edit" tab and the suggestion should be there (includes parents links). You won't get an e-mail telling you it's there. I guess now, we're expected to remember to look there for updates. Please let me know if you don't find it and I'll resend. Here's the link
Thank you,

RE: Regarding Conrad's Civil War Service
Thank you for reminding me. I have deleted the picture. I am not at home right now, but I will crop that picture to remove the GAR marker and repost at my first opportunity.

Regarding Conrad's Civil War Service
According to the National Archives and Records Administration pension cards of Civil War veterans Conrad M. Tharp filed pension application number 1111974, as an invalid, on May 12, 1892 from the state of Iowa. He claimed service in Company E of the 2nd Regiment of the Iowa Infantry. I have been unable to find Conrad in any rosters, and evidently the federal government was unable to find any service records as well. The pension card does not have a certificate number assigned which would have indicated pension approval. The same was the case for Augustus M. Tharp who filed pension application number 1249329, as an invalid, on May 31, 1900 from the state of Iowa, but had no certificate number assigned. On the other hand brother Nathan's pension application card does have a certificate number assigned, 961402, and his enlistment is documented in "Roster and Record of Iowa Troops In the Rebellion, Vol. 1 thru VI" by Guy E. Logan; E. H. English, State Printer; Des Moines; 1908-11.

Thanks for the transfer. No worry about how long it took. We all have lives besides our family histories :-)

I noticed on the Find a Grave posting for Synthia (Cynthia) Ann Kelley, you mentioned information from the family's Bible. Do you have access to this bible? Synthia's brother, Tyra Harris Kelley, would be my great great grandfather. You can email me at Thanks in advance.

RE: **Sponsorship** of Joseph Vanous
My apologies Carla,

Joseph is in a family tree I created for my husband's family. I was able to get to his page and see that I did sponsor the page, and did send the brief info on his bio.

Sorry for the confusion,

RE: **Sponsorship**

Joseph Vanous's name is not ringing any bells, and you send me his Find A Grave #.

Thanks, Nanny

Memorial # 114564118. Thanks for your note at that memorial flower site about some of her children. The will of her husband lists even more. I have listed them in the bio section of her memorial.

Nancy Losey
The date has now been added for Nancy's stone. Thanks for doing the math! Sometimes I miss one when I'm adding several from cemeteries. I try to figure out the dates when I post.

Wayne Eckstine
Marshall Board FAG 31168290
I am the son of Louis Board's niece Merna Robinson Eckstine referenced in your bio. You may wish to add that when Marshall and Elizabeth Board's daughter Lela Board Robinson died because of a miss carriage of her fourth child in 1923 that the three children lived with their grand parents. Percella "Pat", Merna and Treva lived with the Board family in Jack County until their widower father John E Robinson could care for them in Archer City in about 1928. His brother David and wife Juanita lived in the same house and could help care for the children. Thank you for the work on the Memorials.

I am from Charles and Mary Moore line by Philander and Pricilla. Charles W Moots and Laura Belle Ansel was my great grandparents. I am more than happy to share what I have and would love any information you may have. I would really like to confirm John and Elizabeth's children. Let me know if I can be of any help. Please let me know what you may have as well.

I am working on my family tree. I was wondering if you might have any information that could help me. I have traced back to a John Michael and Elizabeth Linksweiler Moots. I have them tied to Charles, George, and Conrad Moots. I do not have any more information on John and Elizabeth. Wondering if you could help

RE: Nora Bell Templeton
Lee Templeton had a daughter, Winona, age 17, in 1930 census. In 1920, Winona was living in Honey Grove, Texas (Fannin County) with her aunt and uncle, Julian Goodman and Claudia Goodman. So Julian likely was her mother's brother or Claudia likely was her mother's sister. Just a clue that you might want to chase down.

Thank you Carla, I agree with you. I want families to know the person and the person's
history. My daughter-in-law and I went to the Short Mountain Cemetery to find Gustie Cole Struble (a family member) and we did find her headstone, but the cemetery is in such poor condition. There isn't a fence and cows had gotten in there and moved headstones. There were so many Rocks as headstones. It broke our hearts.
If I can be of any assistance please ask.
