RE: Lucy Canter Wilmoth 103742464
I think the obit is wrong. Sarah "Hulda" Robinson had a daughter named Beulah & I think someone got them confused. I found Alfred J Canter & Everett D Messenger here in Belmont Co. Both obits list Lucy Wilmoth of Clarksburg as a sister. Alfred died 1980 & Everett died 1983. Sarah "Hulda" Robinson was the mother of Alfred & Everett. Like I said a very confusing bunch.

RE: Lucy Wilmoth #103742464
I sent you an edit for Lucy. My info doesn't agree with her obit. Check out my memorial for Sarah Pritt #180526900. A very confusing group. Thanks.

There was a photo of the gravesite of Benjamin "Benny" Tallman on a memorial (#132640848), but that memorial no longer exists and the new memorial doesn't have the photo. You have posted a photo of the Tallmansville Baptist Cemetery entrance. The memorial is #52481674. Would you have a photo of the gravesite for Benjamin "Benny" Tallman (November 8,1791 - November 29,1871)? Since Benjamin is part of my family tree and I live in Colorado and unable to travel to West Virginia, I would appreciate any information that you might have concerning this gravesite. Thank you.

On Feb. 20 I used the Edit option to send a note for addition to his memorial. Did you receive it?

long run cemetery
I leave next to this cemetery, and the James Tenney that you have buried there is buried at the Cassity Cemetery, when you start down the Long Run Road. He is not buried at the Long Run Cemetery.

Does anyone have any information that would suggest that Eleazer and Agreen are twins? We only know their approximate ages of birth from their headstones with Eleazer at 1745 and Agreen at 1744.

Benjamin Collins #86502533

I do not have any connection with Benjamin other that I took a photo of his and about 400 other stones in the St Albans Cemetery.

I will transfer him back to you if you like.

I have linked John with his second wife. It is an interesting story and one that substantiates that we genealogists are not bothered when we find relatives with characteristics that some might like to reveal. For my part I want to know all about them "warts and all."

Thanks Ben for documenting our family. Wanted to correct my Dad's name - should be Charles Harry Retkofsky (not Henry). Thanks again. Also was wondering if you knew where Arthur's first wife was buried.

Someone has made a photo request for Memorial# 85802488, Clara York (Dow?) The only stone we have found is Dwight and Kathleen York in Green Lawn Rest Cemetery - Clinton, Me. Would you happen to know the lot/plot location? Please leave us a message as we removed our email address. Thank you. :)

RE: Carl Retcofsky
Hi Ben, Thanks for your quick response. I'm not related to Carl but to his second wife Wilhelmina (Minnie). Minnie would have been my 4X Great Aunt. Carl's obit may have some useful info so if you have it I'd like to see it. Just let me know what I need to do. Thanks, Michael.

Added by MVA on Apr 13, 2015 7:33 PM

Hi, Are you related to Carl Retkofsky? If so, was he married twice, once to Ella Nora and then Minnie?
Thanks, Mike.

RE: Mary Shipman
You already had parents and spouses: I meant to indicate they were children. The first 8 by first wife, the last 7 by 2nd wife. Realized after I hit the send button it was incomplete. Hilda
