RE: Ernest Theopholis Burke
Thanks for that information, Kelly. I was wondering about that.

And again, thanks for all the hard work you do. It has helped me, and a lot of other people also.

Have a good one - Bonnie

Ernest Theopholis Burke
For Find A Grave Memorial# 19053619 for Ernest Theopholis Burke, Amarillo is in Potter Co., TX - not Randall Co. My parents were married there, and that is what his death certificate says.

Kelly, I want to thank you for all your research and help. I am also related to the Bennett family, and you have helped me so much.

Thanks for everything you do.

Johannes Martin Hans Ribelin #95585670
I found that Martin and Anna Riblin had three children in addition to those listed: Sarah, Susanna and Rachel. 'The Kern Family of Rowan County, North Carolina...' by Mary Margaret Kern Garrard (1968) p.26 and page 25 of the same booklet states "...Katharine's father, Martin Riblin (or Raiblen, Reblin, Roblin, Ribley, Roebling, Ribelin, Ribeling). Rupps' 'Thirty Thousand Names of Immigrants', 1727-1776, page 289, lists a Hans Martin Raible and a Johannes Raible. Strassburger 'German Pioneers', Vol 1, page 489, verifies this by listing Hans Marti Raible and Johannis Reiblen as arriving in this country on the ship Duke of Wirtemberg, Daniel Montpelier, commander. They came the usual way -- from Rotterdam by way of Cowes, England -- and were received at the Philadelphia Court House Oct. 20, 1752. They could write."
and it goes on to provide land ownership information. So it seems Martin had a brother as well, could that be the unknown burial in the Ribelin cemetery? 'The Genealogical Society of Rowan County, North Carolina, Volume V Rowan County Cemeteries' lists all but three of the interments on findagrave: Anna, Martin and unknown aren't found in this [undated] publication.

It stands to reason that your information predates what I have found as the youngest siblings weren't listed on findagrave. I wonder if you would be willing to share info and point me in a new research direction?

RE: Charles E. Niday
I have revised his bio with the discrepancy of both the census and cert. That clears my conscience.I don't think we can get to the bottom of this deli ma. I checked the hand writing on this document and the Dr.s Signature is different than Cecil's and Melvina's. My synopsis is only one person filed it out, then the Dr. signed it.
My mind doesn't seem to give this up because I like to be accurate in my records.

RE: Charles E. Niday
I have the 1930 census and you are correct but no validation of his death in the death index.

RE: Charles E. Niday
I wish I could send you a copy of this death certificate. Then you could decide for yourself whether it is a mistake by the family or by the census takers or government. However I agree that there is a human error somewhere.

I just thought you might want more info from this certificate. Date of Birth: January 9, 1859. Date of burial: 6-1929 Cement.Mother: Melvina Kelley Father: Henley Alexander Niday. The above is true to the best of my knowledge. Informant: A. C. Niday of Cement, Oklahoma.

Charles E. Niday
His death Certificate shows he died June 27, 1929 and he was attended to from June 1st 1929 to June 27, 1929. He died of Heart Disease.
As far as the Censuses I have found that there calculation can be disagreeable by a year or two in all the research I have done. My 1860 & 1880 & 1910 Census has him born in 1859.And yet my 1900 census has him born in 1857 and the 1930 says he was born 1860. To wrap this up I have concluded that Official documents signed by the next of kin are the best and closes truth there is.
As far as the 1940 census for Matilda, I too have not come up with anything. My only conclusion would be that after Charles died she gave up the property and moved in with her daughter. I hope this helps your confusion. I tried to paste a copy of Charles death certificate but it won't let me, sorry.

I changed the Birth date for Eugenia and added what you found that differed from Ohio Births and Christenings, 1821-1962 and her headstone.

Thank you for the information on Dudley Short. I would agree that the birth certificate would have the accurate information and have accepted your correction. I always appreciate accuracy and thus appreciate your suggestion.

William Shook
Hello Kelly, my mother is researching William Shook and his wife Catherine Sears Shook (buried in Shook Cemetery in Flat Creek) for D.A.R. Do you know where the birth and death dates came from used on the plaque in that cemetery?

Wilfred Smith
Good morning,

Thanks for the update info on Wilfred Smith.

Are you related to him and his wife Florence? Florence is a cousin of my husband's mother. We don't know much about her or her family and would love to know more about them.

You can message me back through Find A Grave or use our private e-mail;

Hope to hear from you soon,

Glenn & Karen Kleinberg

Hello Kelly, Great memorial and I like both. Just a brief correction if you care to and easy mistake to make - Adrian, Lewanee County, Michigan - Lewanee is actually spelled Lenawee. Best regards, Lynn

RE: Lucy Miller
With Find A Grave there is nothing hard at all to make changes and I have had to do the same thing from time to time. We all make mistakes and no need to beat each other up over them. It is fine and was glad to do it for you
