RE: unfound grave of Martha Cantwell
You are most welcome. I am still searching for a copy of the plat, for surely there is one somewhere. I will still try to help pinpoint the location.

Peace and Joy,

Please check death date for Frank L Fisher. SS death records have his death year as 1976 not 1978.
He is my husbands 1st cousin 2x removed.

Whitehead Family
Irwin Whitehead, my g g g grandfather came to north Louisiana from Dale County, Alabama about 1850 with his uncle Henry Whitehead. Irwin's parents were James and Anna Irwin Whitehead.

I have an outline that traces the Whitehead family back to Virginia. If you are interested in a copy of the Whitehead family information send me an email address and I will forward it to you!

William Henry Wade
Donna: In 2008, I got some info from a genealogist on the family of Platt Howard Smith. I posted to Find-a-Grave what I could from what she sent me. Obviously, there seems to be a confusion between the one at Huntington & the one at Amityville - 2 people ? same person ?? I know zero about either & have done zero research. If you would like, I can transfer either / both of them to you. It would be good to get all this "fixed." I appreciate any help you can give me. Platt Howard Smith was the ancestor to the wife of William Henry Wade [which one - now I'm confused]. Anyway, let me know what you'd like me to transfer over to you.

Hey there
Hi there Dona, this is Johnny daughter, Caren. Got your letter, sort of. It went to my old house (my ex) but my kids got the letter and called me tonight. Let me know what info you need from me. Not sure if I have enough. I do have Grandpa Herron's old Bible that has some information that I have not been able to track. But my mom has more, I think. We will have to see what she has of Grandma Grace's things.

RE: Bolsinger dates correction
I hope everything is right! Thanks for the "fixes". I have found lots of spelling variations for Civil War veterans--just today!

RE: Bolsinger dates correction
The pictures are correct now, but one of the memorials did have both pictures. I emailed the person who added the pictures and they apparently removed the incorrect one. I added the CW record for John Jackson even though it has the last name spelled incorrectly--and I added a note to that effect. Hope this clears things up--if not, let me know. Thanks.

RE: Bolsinger dates correction
The dates you have for Andrew Jackson Bolsinger are John Jackson Bolsingers's dates. If you just remove those dates from Andrew, things should be okay. Your military info seems to be fine for both. The dates I found on the Ancestry Tree for Andrew were Sep 1824 and 8 Jan 1904, but it's up to you if you want to post them on his memorial or not. Sorry for any confusion I caused.

RE: Sarah Ann Wilson at Lecky
After checking my many visit-files I must admit that Sarah's marker was never found. Best she has a memorial & that the theory-location is at Leckey's. Shall hope to find it & others in the future! Happy new year to you & happy hunting in 2014. -b

RE: Thomas Wilson
William Alexander Winsell a son of Adam Winsell and Sarah Curtner married Elisabeth Jane Wilson another child of Alexander Adair Wilson and Margaret Laughlin. I am a direct descendant of Adam Winsell through another son Lewis. I am gathering source documentation for my Winsell line and am sharing as much as I can with those touched by that line.

Thank you and I will pass on anything more I may find.

RE: Agnes Clevenger
You're welcome. But I actually got that information from the WA State Digital Archives. Sometimes one is lucky to find some information on people/relatives. Here's the link if you would like it. Sometimes you have to play around with the spelling of the names or just put last name and first initial or just last name etc. Take care.

John and Charlotte Bolsinger Memorials
Hello Dona,

I added memorials for John and Charlotte Bolsinger to Hampden Memorial Estates today. I photographed the headstones on May 4 2013. Then I found the memorial that you maintain for them at Bald Mountain Cemetery, also with a headstone photo. Do you know if they were reinterned?

We did not take notes. I can send the original photo of Minerva Balsinger if you want to blow it up, but it looks like "I." to me.

Jane (Jones) Roberts
Dear Dona:
It's been a while since we've been in touch but I wanted to let you know that I have found that Jane (Jones) Roberts died and was buried in California. I will be adding a memorial for her. I've been looking at some of the memorials you've made and you've done such a great job.
I'm curious about the information that her and Thomas had another daughter.
Would love your input on Jane's memorial, etc.
Hope all is well with you.

Velma A Fisher
I have a picture of Velma A Fisher whom I suspect is your Ann, as the dates on the stone match. If you'd like to see it, my email address is and I'd be happy to send it to you to decide if she is the same as the one you're looking for.

Hi Dona,
I meant to tell you that I still have all that info I did for my friend a few years ago, so if there is any way I can help you just let me know.

RE: The Fishers
Oh yes ma'am I sure do.... lol...
There was some Selby's (any of them) in Oregon and also some McMahan's out there. I am not sure of the McMahan's names, but I am thinking it was Arthur McMahan who died June 18, 1928... He would be my top guy to lookup along with his family if you ever come across him, I would forever be in your debt.

Added by Carole Marie McMahan on Apr 28, 2013 4:44 PM

Carole Marie McMahan
Hi Dona,
I wasn't sure if you needed them or not, but I transferred all the Fisher's in Irish Ridge to you. I figure they are all related, so that's why I transferred them to you. Hope you don't mind.
