RE: Nicholas C. Roberts parents
Yes. That's my Ancestry name. Yes--that note was tucked in the Roberts family Bible that my great-grandmother had that had belonged to her parents Jesse and Martha (Carson) Roberts. Yes, I suppose that's strange about them not naming a son Lewis, but Bill Roberts really felt that her notes were more substantial "proof" than what had been previously given by other researchers. Hope you'll be on the mend soon!

Mary Floyd Roberts relocation
Hi again, Bonnie,

On Mary's memorial page you mention:
She continued on to Arkansas with the children, first to Bradley County and then to Dorsey County (which became Cleveland County in 05 Mar 1885).

Just wanted to clarify something on their location. They actually did not move from Bradley Co. to Dorsey (Cleveland). They were living in Miller Twp. of Bradley Co. in 1870 which was annexed to Dorsey in 1873. So though the county name changed, they were still in the same place apparently.

Nicholas C. Roberts parents
Hi Bonnie, wondered if you had seen the notes on my family tree on Ancestry re: the parents of Nicholas C. Roberts. I believe Lewis/Louis Roberts to be his father based on notes my great-grandmother left in the family Bible. Her father was Jesse S. Roberts, son of Nicholas C. I had shared these notes with Bill Roberts who had straightened out the "Cecily Floyd" issue, and he agreed that it is more likely that Lewis/Louis Roberts and Rhoda Rosanna Dove are the parents of Nicholas C. He (if I remember correctly) had no real proof of John Roberts being Nicholas C.'s father.

This is pertaining to this memorial Find A Grave Memorial# 39870056. I would be interested to know if this is the correct name for this person. I found a double marker with the correct dates and spouse but with Johnson D. Osborn. Which is correct?

Please remove the scanned obit you posted to the memorial I created for James Powers. It is a violation of Find A Grave policy to post obits in the photo section as stated in FAQs concerning photos. Thanks

Would you be willing to go and remove the big
flower you placed on the Reverend's memorial?

I sent some EDIT TABS and the findAgraver who
owns his memorial and they kindly updated it
with almost all of the info your flower contained.

So, I was a thinking that it would look ever so
much nicer without all that information and
with, perhaps a simpler one?

Thank you!

RE: #101583522 John David Riddell/Riddle
I had a request to link Opal Riddell Massengill to her parents and in doing research, I found several references to Riddle. In Doyle case, his name may have been changed in the military. I usually use the spelling in the obit if it is the same as the SSDI and what the family puts on the headstones but put a note that it is spelled both ways. I know one family that has Greene on their headstone but have never used that "e" before or in their obits. Strange. Marsha

RE: Help!
Ms. Bonnie, you are great. I contacted them today, so hopefully I will hear something. Thank you for the information.

Hey Bonnie,

I have talked to you in the past about the McAnally family tree. I am doing some research on my grandmother, Bertha Bell McAnally Cartwright. She had a sister named Gertha Haney. She died very young, but I just can't find any information (she died at 17). She is buried at Willis-McAnally Cemetery, and there is only one other Haney in it and it was a baby. Could she have died during childbirth? Anything would be great!

RE: Nicholas James Roberts #133608753 & his mother #136608753
You're welcome, Bonnie! Glad it's straight on his memorial page. It's all through the Cleveland Co. history books incorrectly, and it keeps getting perpetuated in new books they put out--the most recent is one on Civil War soldiers of Cleveland Co. Will have to write to them and let them know the correct info for the next time. I had picked up at the court house his marriage license to his 2nd wife, but I gave it to one of his direct descendants after scanning it. Let's do keep in touch!

RE: Nicholas James Roberts #133608753 & his mother #136608753
Hi Bonnie--I think I replied to this message before, but I was looking at it again. I can tell you the county history books for Cleveland Co., AR have wrong information on Nicholas James "Nick" Roberts. His 2nd wife was Elvira (not Clara) Jane Foster, but she was the widow of Joseph Greenlees when she married Nicholas as shown on their marriage record. Nicholas is buried next to his first wife Lucinda Jane in the Rowell Cemetery in Rowell, Cleveland Co., AR, and Elvira Jane and Joseph are also buried at Rowell. Happy continued hunting! :)

RE: James Talmadge Curtis #119625236
Hi there,

I did go to the memorial page and correct the name on the picture for Nancy.

Also you might look at findagrave memorial #46917956 which is for Nancy Jane Crow and has a picture of her grave marker. I also had the same picture on that memorial but I pulled it off. I have also changed all the info on ancestry from Nancy Jane Crow to Nancy Ann Wilson.

Thank you so much for bringing this most important info to my attention. I don't want the wrong people on my family tree.

Have a Blessed Day!!!

RE: James Talmadge Curtis #119625236
P.S. You might want to check out findagrave memorial #46917956. I don't know where the information listed on that memorial page came from. As far as I know, Nancy never remarried after James died but I don't know that for a fact. When I knew Nancy, she looked just like she does in the picture and was living with Gertrude Curtis Shaw. :)

RE: James Talmadge Curtis #119625236
Hi there,

Gertrude Curtis Shaw was my grandmother. I never knew James because he died so early but I knew Nancy whom we called "Mimi". She was very old and a precious, sweet, woman. I was told by someone in the Curtis Family that her last name was Crow. So that is where I got my info. I just found the same marriage record that is listed on the findagrave memorial page that lists Nancy Ann Wilson not Nancy Jane Crow. Since I have no proof for Nancy Jane Crow, I am changing the name to Nancy Ann Wilson. I am very sorry for the confusion but I am glad to find this information and get it corrected. Thank you so much for contacting me!

Did you know this family. I m interested in finding out a few things about his son (James E Osborne)son, James Fred Osborne. He was a very dear friend in the early 70's.

Gober Kin

I'm a Gober kin. I'm a great grandson of Nicey Jane Gober, the second wife of Owen Halford.

I'm trying to find the burial place of Joseph Edward, Sr. and Aunt Willie Gee. Aunt Willie Gee was my grandmother's sister--Margaret Frances "Maggie" Nash Halford.

Trying to find out if they're buried in Georgetown or in Lakewood in Jackson--the same place that Joseph, Jr. is buried.

Hope you can point me in the right direction.

I will be in the Jackson area at the end of the month.

Louis Farina

Thank you for posting this wonderful tribute to our Father, Louis Farina. I am Mark, his youngest of Four Sons. Our only Child, a Son Louis was of course named for his Grandfather.

My Dad was a remarkable man, who lead an equally remarkable life that touched the lives of countless Individuals and organizations. It will be five years in August since his passing after a thankfully relatively short illness. It was a blessing so that he didn't have to suffer anymore than he already had over a 1-2 year period.

I had never seen or heard of the wonderful proclamation from the Illinois Senate. I was aware of the one in his honor from Mayor Daley and the Chicago City Council. Our family was present when it was presented .

Thank you again,

Mark Farina
