RE: Margaret J Adkins McNair
Correction, the names I gave you are of her great grandchildren, the children of Margaret's granddaughter, Ruth Nixon Wilson,133586924, who is also buried there. The survivor's names are listed in her obituary.

RE: Margaret J Adkins McNair
The only thing I could find for you is that of her grandchildren, children of her daughter Cora. Maybe you can contact one of them there in AR.

Mike Wilson of Jacksonville, Kathy Roberts of Little Rock, Larry Wilson of Jacksonville.

I hope this helps.

This Walter Scott Heath 'may' have been the son of an A. Heath born ca 1828 NY and his wife S. Heath born ca 1833 New Hampshire, who appear on the 1860 census for Chariton Co. MO next door to Garrett Dyer Garvin whose name appears later in a 'note' (loan) given to Walter Scott Heath.

RE: Walter Scott Heath
You're in luck! I used to post all info to the old 'Genforum' so others could find it. I went online and looked and found this I'd posted back in 2008:

I have a bunch of documents I paid for thinking that this individual was in my family line (he is not). They are regarding a Walter Scott Heath who lived in Chariton Co. MO married to a Josie (whom he was divorcing) in 1901-1902. Would be happy to send them to the 'right' Heath family who might like to have them.

This Walter Scott Heath states he married Josie (unknown) on 8 Dec 1900 in Carroll Co. Arkansas, and lived with her in 'their home ' Salisbury, chariton Co. MO where he worked as a mail carrier between Brunswick and Indian Grove MO during spring and summer 1901. He sued for divorce Feb 1902 on grounds that he was so jealous she was basically nuts and caused him to be given a bad reputation where he lived among his neighbors and friends.

'Josie' apparently had a brother living 7 miles out fromWatonga, Blaine Co. AR. as some paperwork shows.

Walter Scott Heath is then found working in 1902 on the K.C.S. Railway 380 mi south of Kansas City where he was 'taken down with pneumonia' and put into the St Joseph Hospital in Kansas City. MO. He then writes a letter to a Captain Benecki (his attorney) from Wedington, Arkansas.

There is documentation that he and Josie bought 5 acres of land in 1901 in Benton Co Arkansas which later had to be foreclosed on and sold due to their divorce.

There is a long emotional letter from 'Josie' to Walter Scott Heath in these documents. I do not know who any of these parties are, but am hoping someone out there can recognize this group. Divorce papers said they had 'no children' before they were divorced.

RE: Walter Scott Heath

No it was not Walter Scott Heath. I remember back years ago finding some divorce paperwork on Josie Hogue Heath who it stated had gone to live with her brother (?) I think it was. I had thought it might be related but I just remember that the paperwork proved it was not my Walter Scott Heath but another-now where I found that paperwork I cannot remember as it would be about 12 yrs ago now--I vaguely remember it was interesting reading though--not that that helps you any. And again it won't help you since I obviously didn't keep it when I saw it wasn't related to me, but my vague memory says it was many complaints by the husband about her--and that maybe he was in another state?

RE: Booth
I am not related, exactly. My step granddaughter is and I've been doing her tree for her.....I only have a small bit of info on the Booth family, but rely on Find A Grave to help in research, so try to update it when I have full info on someone. Find A Grave is an invaluable tool and the more we who use it can help others is, to me a good thing.

My email is if you have specific questions I can help with. Just always put Velvet in the subject line - I work on lots of "trees" - so I know what family you are working on.

RE: J C Davis
Hi Pete,

I am related to almost every Davis in the Sharon Cemetery, but I cannot make the connection to JC Davis and his parents Daniel Calvin and Martha Jane. It's a small cemetery and to have a random set of Davis' and for them to not be related to all the other Davis' is just odd. I'll keep digging and if I make the connection, I'll take him off your hands, lol!

Thank you so much for adding him and others to this wonderful website! :-)

RE: Parrish
Not really - only by marriage. 2 Parish brothers married 2 of my aunts. I was just filling in some gaps in my Dad's genealogy and thought it was sad that the Parish parents weren't connected to any of their children on FindAGrave.

Would you appove the link of Arrianna to her parents? I'm trying to get all the 11 children linked to their parents. Thank you.

RE: Arrianna Yates
Corbin was in a large collection of research that I inherited especially of our Duroe family. Her middle initial on her stone is C so it fits. My aunt's records are quite accurate on the whole, so when in doubt, I go with them. I finally created a memorial for her son Franklin Yates. I knew he was at Hillington from newspapers. Not a very nice fellow and no doubt hastened Arrianna's death. I didn't add that. Too bad to blacken a good family's name. Franklin was a teacher, a pedofile, had raped a neighbor, barricaded himself in the attic, killed a state trooper when they tried to take him, then shot himself. So hence, I doubt his grave is marked.

RE: Martha Gage Fulk
Yes, I am related, but not closely. The research of my direct ancesters, also includes the siblings and grandchildren of my direct ancesters.

About Martha DeFir Gage Fulk:
Martha's 1st marriage was to Thomas Gage on 28 Dec 1903 in Desha Co., Arkansas. Her 1st husband, GAGE, died in 6 Aug 1934 in White Co., Arkansas.
Martha's 2nd marriage was to Charles G Fulk on 27 Nov 1937, in White Co., Arkansas. Her 2nd husband, FULK, died 17 Mar 1962 in Alameda Co., California.
These marriage and death records are on, along with census records showing Martha with both of these husbands.

Pete, if you are out and about, could you verify the military footer is still there? There is a rumor that some military footers were stolen and this name is on the list. There may have been an earlier stone that went missing and a new one was created, but I just wanted to make sure there IS one at the grave. Thanks Jan

Per the "THE OSBORNE COUNTY KANSAS HALL OF FAME EXPANDED EDITION 1996-2015" Edited by Von Rothenberger 1st Edition January 2015 Page 22
Read this; states since his induction into the Hall of fame in 2001, more research has been done on this person. In doing so it turned out that many of the items published on Benson were greatly embellished, if not outright fabrications. This is straight from the book.

RE: Henry Phillips
Okay, now what do I do? When the weather cools up some, I hope to go down to the cemetery (it's about 1/4 mile from my home) and try at least chalking it to find out more on him. What does it mean by "transferring"? I'm sort of new to all of this, but I don't understand.

RE: Henry Phillips
Hi, Pete. I ran across Henry's name because of his marriage into the Cozart family. My great aunt married Henry's sister, and that is my connection. Additionally, Henry's tombstone is located in the community cemetery near where I live and have many, many relatives. I can't find out anything on him other than his civil war headstone. I would be honored for you to transfer him to me. Frankly, I didn't know anything about that process. Let me know. My direct email is: for faster communication. Thank you.

RE: Martin Benson
I WILL provide you with the data that refutes yours, and suggest you read the book and will note the pages you need to read. Newspapers for years have provided false information UNTIL William Randolph Hearst newspapers has so much "yellow" fake information and now papers can get into trouble for not printing the facts, and will often ask for documentation.

I will provide the published book on Osborne County History that states the information you have as incorrect and why
as well as provide the same to Find A Grave as yours IS INCORRECT and You refused an update with factual data and prefer to believe the lies
