RE: Cecelia A Wright
Dave - hi. Thanks for the info. you mention an interesting situation - she was married 2x. That helped a LOT - just realized she WHO she is -
Cecelia Ann Webster Goforth
Birth 17 FEB 1836 Ohio
Death 26 NOV 1914 Jackson, Greene Co., Iowa

You are correct about the 2 marriages. I don't have anything on Cecelia's 1 marriage; however, did find this ----

"Isaiah married Elizabeth Cole on February 19, 1857 in Dallas County, Iowa. They were the parents of Emma, Edward, James, Laurence, Louella & Maude. After Elizabeth's death Isaiah married Cecilia Ann (Webster) Goforth on March 5, 1874 in Greene County, Iowa. They are the parents of Charles & Jenetta "Nettie"."

Maybe some bad news - it appears there is another find-a-grave site for Cecelia here --

Since Cecelia has a 'specific' headstone, is there a record of WHO she might have been married to OR a cemetery record that might indicate if she was a Wright who MARrIED a Wright. It happened a lot - unfortunately.

She is one of the 'few' Celia/Cecelia Wright's that I cannot determine who her parents may have been.

Evelyn Selke
Are you still doing Find A Grave? I sent you several edits for Evelyn Selke and a bio and I haven't seen her memorial updated. I didn't know if you knew, that memorials were only supposed to be entered after the person has passed. Thanks for your continued support in Find A Grave.

RE: Dorcas Stewart grave photo
You're very welcome! I did not see a stone marked for William Stewart. There were a few worn, illegible stones but none particularly close to Dorcas'.

RE: Turners and Pratts
I'm fortunate to have a large genealogy library close enough that I can get some of the books checked out. Mostly it's counties or cemeteries where I also have family. Where are your Turners and Pratts?
Oh. I also have a funeral home book from Putnam Co., MO. That's interesting. It tells some survivors, parents, dates, places, etc. and what's on their death certificates, where they're buried, etc. Right now, in MO you can only see up to 1963 so this book is much newer with deaths in the 1990s. So, if I have a lot of info like that, and if your family was in Putnam or Sullivan Co., MO., I may have gotten the info there.
But I do go overboard. Once I see who their parents were, I get sidetracked and start searching for them and then, for their siblings. I have no life. lol.

RE: Turners and Pratts
If I can help you I'll be happy to, but I do a lot of transcribing of bios of people and cemeteries I'm not related to, so I may not have any information. What you got?
