Hi Susan,

I got your message:

"Thank you for including Elsie on f.a.g. Please link to her parents and include their marriage date of: November 17, 1908, Hayesville, Sedgwick Co., Kansas
"With my appreciation, Susan"

I have linked Elsie's memorial to those of her parents, Frederick Samuel Sherman and Mary Isabelle (Rogers) Sherman, who were married in about 1876, according to the 1900 federal census.

Best Regards,
Vincent Prichard

Sidney was his dad and my Great Granddad. I didn't know they divorced, but yes...I will add both~! On the hunt for Snarr now. Thanks and so glad I shared with you.

This is James W Ruble's resting place. The following web link is to his 1920 census interview:

His wife is buried in the same cemetery.

I believe his birthday was May 18, 1882 but he misrepresented it to the Army when he enlisted to fight in the Spanish-American War. Since it is an Army headstone, it used the year he gave them: 1879.

Excellent. She had two other brothers:Louie M and James W. Wouldn't it be great if we could link them all.

RE: George & Ethel Martin ~ Glendale Cemetery, Des Moines, Polk, IA
I found a marriage record for a loretta martin to Sid P. Corrick on 13 Aug 1922 in Ottumwa, wapello, iowa. It is definitely her because of the parents listed. I see her still married to him in 1925. I did not see her in the 1930 census. In 1940 sid corrick is married to someone else named mildred. Thats as far as i got with loretta wyatt.

RE: Jack Byron Martin ~ 23585708
I am not sure if it is the same person. If you have death dates for George and Ethel or Loretta I can look and see if any obituaries show up.

RE: O'Brien 3739806
Hi Susan -- I did a little research and the CA death index lists him as being 47 at the time of his death, so born about 1892. Also, there is a great website about the unit he served in -- company I of the 314 Infantry -- see

Thanks for the additions. The book, Kansas Irish, is a wonderful read, all about the life and times of Flossie Driscoll and his family. Marie was one of his daughters.

RE: 71313038

Please do transfer management of both Marilyn and William Adolph Heller Jr. to me (parents). Thank you.

My father often spoke fondly of our relatives in SLC, and I actually met your family during a vacation (guessing early 1960s).

Like your family, mine consists of grocers. William Heller Sr. owned a market in Del Norte, CO. While my father worked for big chains much of his career, he did realize his dream of owning a market in the late 70s. My brother is employed by Safeway.

I am proud of my Heller lineage and do my best to uphold the values of hard work and responsibility that were passed down.

It is wonderful to meet you (virtually) and I hope that we can stay in touch. My email:; phone 602.663.6303.

Sorry for the long delay in responding. Life got in the way and I haven't been doing much genealogy for a year or so.

Your assumptions are not correct. Here's how we fit together:

My father is Robert B. Jensen
Son of Marion L. Jensen and Gertrude V. Harris Jensen

Gertrude's parents were Burton J. Harris and Jennie May Luse Harris

Burton's father was John Sherman Harris #91142905
his mother was Louisa Julia Lee Harris (not on Find A Grave)/ She was John S. Harris' first wife. Together they had five children, 4 of whom lived through adulthood.

I'll be happy as well as Louisa Lee's ancestors to provide you with additional information on the other half-siblings of Percy Frederick if you're interested.

I'll try to respond in a more timely manner should you post again. :-)

RE: Marilyn C. Heller ~ 71313038

Thank you for editing Marilyn Cooley Heller's site with both of her parents. I will forward you a short bio that highlights her life in the next few weeks.

I am glad to learn that we are related (William A. Heller is my grandfather). Perhaps you can share which of his siblings is your direct ancestor. I am working on my ancestry history and would love to connect with other family members.

Best Regards,

RE: Percy Lamar Isbell ~ Richfield Cemetery, #103773417

I have a thought that I should keep my memorial and put a note in it that although the Death Certificate says he is buried there he is really at Redwood Memorial. We don't know when or what the circumstances are for his having been removed.That way I could redirect those looking for him thinking they are sure he's in Richfield. If I delete it, someone else may just recreate another one and this could happen over and over.

What I could also do is delete the family links so he doesn't show up twice on the relationship list for your memorial.

Does that sound like a good plan?

I'd LOVE that! Thank you so much.

M Keller. How do I leave you a private message with my address?

Hello, I don't really know what that means. Or the number you posted to me. I do know who Christopher is though! He is my great Grandfather x3.

Me -> My Dad Cornell Grover - > His mother Loraine Alston - Her dad Clifford Alston -> His dad, Christopher Alston, married to Annie Charlotte Chapman Smith

How are you related? Do you know anything about Annie?

RE: Isbell, Percy #103773417
Good luck with the future investigation. The person to talk to at the Richfield City office is Terianne Hill, 435-896-6430. I spoke with her yesterday, she said she could find no record of Percy ever being buried in Richfield.

Billion Graves account sign-up is free. You could then look at the headstone photos.

RE: IOOF Cemetery ~ Richard A. Farrington
Susan, thanks for contacting me!

Mr. Farrington was my 5th grade teacher and principal at Waterloo School in 1958 - 1959. I remember him as being stern but kind (if that makes sense). When I noticed his gravestone at the Lebanon Cemetery, I made a point of making sure that he was listed at Find a Grave.

Your message left the impression that you are a relative, perhaps his daughter. I would be glad to transfer his memorial to you, and in any event you are welcome to add photos to the memorial. Somewhere among my "stuff" I may have a class photo from the 5th grade, but I certainly don't know where to look!

I see that you created a memorial for Richard Pratt Farrington; I saw in his obit that he was the father of Richard Alvin Farrington so I have linked son to father.

Let me know if you would like a transfer, and have a great week!

RE: Dearin Family ~ Wamego City Cemetery
The Wamego Times would probably be a good place to start and maybe the westmoreland Recorder. I'm not sure that either of them go back that far, but it is worth checking out.

I found the record for Dallas Sid III here.

I will try to get all of the info sorted.

Dallas Boyd
It looks like the confusion is that the birthdate, which was sent to me is wrong. This is actually the son of Dallas Boyd Jr. He died in 1995 according to Beth El Cemetery Records. I will fix the parent connection and put in a note about grandparents. I could not find where Dallas Boyd Jr is buried.

RE: MINER PORTER ~ 27894311
Hi Susan, I've linked Miner Porter with Louisa Spaulding #61776191 and added a photo of her gravestone. I took the photo in 2007 and it appears that someone tried to clean the stone. I've also requested that the children, Francis and Alice be linked to their parents. Are you related to Louisa? If I can be of further help, please let me know.

Therese Martina Stackpole
I have changed the date of birth as a result of the information you provided, but also located the same date in Massachusetts Birth Records, so definitely the stone is wrong ... not that that's unusual.
Also, learned her middle name.

Thank you for the additional information on the Stackpole Family in Nantucket. I have located more information which I have added, but I do believe the spelling of Therese' maiden name is Mauduit, not Manduit.

Yes let me know. The registery I use may be wrong. They show Harriet in the same grave. They have a great cemetery office.

William N. Hill
There is no marker for either William nor his wife. The person buried on his right is Annie Connelly, (no marker either), and the person buried on his left is Leon Binley.

The Hills may be buried in the same grave, one on top of the other.

I submitted a photo of where his grave is located.
