RE: Addison Long
Mrs. Palmer;
The last written account of Addison Long comes from Western Star news paper dated November 23, 1905 and is listed as Strong. The last account from Peoria Illinois was on November 17, 1905 in which the remains "was place on the "Big Four Train" to be taken to Cozadale, O. for interment. No burial record or remains have been found to date.
The Fountain Park cemetery in Winchester, Randolph County, Indiana, is where most of the Moore family is buried, Addison was never a Moore and no information exist that would indicated the Long family knew of this cemetery. The birth certificate for my Grandfather reads "Frederick Edward (Long) Moore". If you would like I can send you a copy of the death certificate for Addison Long and birth record for Edward Moore.

Memorial 151153834
Hi Dana,
There is a note on the Walter L Kellum memorial page stating his obituaries give death date of Oct. 20, 1954. I just look at the Cincinnati Enquirer for Tuesday, Oct 19 which lists his death as Sunday which would be Oct 17.

Just thought I'd let you know,

RE: John Dunn tombstone
"Did you notice if his wife Jean buried next to him?"

Dana, without a headstone I cannot tell you anything. The closest headstone to grave 19-10-H-13 is the MAIER family's. In Calvary Cemetery, 5 to 6 persons can be buried in the same grave, it doesn't need to be next to him side by side. But in any case, I can't tell you. Sorry.

RE: Mary Barnett Fall
I was at the cemetery today and was able to get the inscription from Garrett's necrology. Mary A. Fall, John and Martha's daughter, is buried beside Martha. The marker only has her death date of Dec. 15, 1845. I don't know when she was born.

I also linked Martha to her husband, J.S. Fall.

Mary Barnett Fall
Hi, Dana! I was adding a memorial to Find a Grave tonight (#175649064) when I found you had her as an unknown burial.

I have been helping out at Decatur Cemetery with verifying records and recording any graves not on record. A few weeks ago, I was given permission to do a rubbing of a grave stone that turned out to be Mary Barnett Fall. We were able to confirm it was her by looking at Franklin Garrett's necrology of the cemetery, taken in 1930. He has the exact inscription, which I will add tomorrow when I get back to the cemetery office.

We also found a marker for a Martha A.Fall as well. She died in December 1845. Not sure yet of their relation to each other.

I thought you'd want to know Mary's location has been found. The folks at the cemetery had no actual record of her until we did the rubbing. :-)

That would be wonderful!
Thank you in advance for your help!
Didema was my 3X great grandmother. I have found very little about her, other than she was blind toward the end of her life.

Phoebe Darling FAG #170357933
I'm curious about your knowledge of this individual. She is the first wife of a man (Felix Coberly) who eventually marries a relation of mine, the widow Martha (Seward) Shuman. Did Phoebe really marry at age 13? On what are you basing her birth year? I'm trying to track this entire cluster of individuals. It is tricky because there are so many sequential marriages. And it has been interesting/difficult partly due to wide spelling variations on names (Phelix Cuberly !? etc.) plus "loose" birthplace information.
Interestingly "my" Martha Seward's family lived in Warren Co., OH, when she was young, before moving to Iowa. It is likely these families had connections I'm still trying to tease out.
I'd be grateful for any insights you may have.

RE: Alexander Clephane
I have transcribed burial records by section & surname; that's why I can't find him. However, I'll keep an eye out for his stone; it's an odd name.

Drexelius photo request
I just filled your photo requests for Xavier and Maria Drexelius. I wanted to let you know there was another headstone right next to theirs for a son, an "Edward" who died 20Mar1895 and was buried 13Apr1895. The notes in the cemetery log say "from Cincinnati". I have a photo of his headstone. If you create a memorial for him, I will add the photo.

Another question

I believe that you had done some work for our family regarding Sarah Stiles Long / George Long.
I have been working with the WCGS to document some things but have not had very much success yet.

I presume that it was you who established the link that Sarah Stiles' mother was Margery Brewster Stiles (Vermont then Symmes Township Hamilton County OH). If so I would very much like to know what documentation you were able to find to establish that link. The only thing that I can remotely find is that she said in the 1860 census that her birthplace was Vermont. I can find nothing else. If you could contact me and point me in the right direction it would be immensely appreciated.

Batsner family in London Ontario
Hi Dana
I went off to help with more photo requests this afternoon. I went to the Oakland Cemetery here in London. It's a very quaint cemetery were we can find several founding members of the city of London. It's very nice.
I looked around and made a call to the office. There are no Batsner family members located here in this cemetery.
I can help do a little more digging in some of the surrounding cemeteries. Batsner doesn't seem to be a popular name.
Sorry I wasn't too much help to you.
Happy Hunting.

Thank you
Thank you for posting Mary Evans-Ross-Long death certificate. She was my great great grandmother who apparently lived in Kings Mills and I didn't realize it but we lived in Kings Mills for many years with no idea. Mary Evans is a part of our Mayflower lineage (Brewster-Stiles-Long-Franz-Davis) and Mary Evans was Ina Long Franz' mother. who was my great grandmother. I have a picture of her at the King Mansion when she worked for the King family around the turn of the century.

RE: Lillian Bader Safferman
Thanks for getting back to me so fast. No, I do not know where Lillian is buried, although there is a Bader family plot in Baron Hirsch Cemetery in Staten Island, NY. Her father is interred there. I am not sure if there is any provision for burying ashes in that cemetery.
I already have all of the information that you have from There is also a school photo of her on their website. I'm pretty sure it's her--listed as "Lillian V. Bader."
I am related to Lillian in the following way: Her father was Murray, HIS father was George. George was the brother of MY great-grandfather, Benny Bader.
I would be very interested in communicating with any of Lillian's family. I am always looking for photos, especially, of members of the Bader family.
The family can contact me at
Thanks for your help.

I noticed that you created a memorial for my relative Lillian V. Bader, yet the cemetery is listed as unknown. May I ask how you knew the information to create this memorial? Are you a friend of hers? If you could point me to a picture of her, I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance.

Hi Dana,

According to a note I found on FamilySearch, two of Nicholas Tigar's wives - Eva and Margaret Schuyler - were half sisters.

Margaret's parents were Jacob and Margaret (Teats) Schuyler, would you happen to know which parent they shared?

Thanks in advance,
