Angeline Cochran # 52399825

I found this obit in the North Vernon Plain Dealer - December 20, 1883 and when checking to see if she had a marked grave found the death date on her memorial is incorrect. Take a closer look at the stone, as it does say 1883. She was one of three wives of James S. Cochran. His second wife Indiana (India) Bradford is also buried at Rock Creek.

December 20, 1883 - North Vernon Plain Dealer

COCHRAN.-Mrs. Angeline M. Cochran daughter of Charles and Mary Waits was born in Clermont county, Ohio,
October 13th, 1849. She was married to James S. Cochran, September 8th, 1868. She joined the Methodist church at Rock Creek in February 1882. She made profession of faith and lived a good life. After a short illness she departed this life December 8th, 1883, in full assurance of faith. All who knew her loved her, and we can scarcely realize that she is gone. She leaves a husband and three children and numerous friends who mourn her departure. Funeral services were held at Rock Creek, Sunday, December 9th, attended by a large company of people. Sermon by the pastor, from Rev. 21st, 4th. - J. P. M.

Charlie Sidwell at Owltown
From your caption on Charlie's headstone picture that you took it appears you are related to him. My husband's grandmother was Elizabeth Irene Sidwell, last daughter of Bud Sidwell and his second wife, Irenia Moles. I and another Sidwell relative are researching James A Garfield Sidwell, only child of Bud Sidwell and his first wife Louisa Daniel. Which brings me to ask, what can you tell us about Charlie? He is the first son of James Sidwell and Leona Daniel Sidwell and by the 1920 census records he was born Abt Nov 1918 but besides the 1920 and 1930 census that's all we can find on Charlie. also, by chance do you know is Tulip Sidwell, also buried at Owltown, is his sister? Any help would be appreciated!
You can reply thro email if you want...Karen in Texas

This is my gggrandmother. She was born in 1823. Her first husband was John Campbell. They had 2 children, David and Mary. Her maiden name is Thurston. I don't know if this is helpful to anyone, but I just thought I'd leave the message.
Thank You

Martha Robertson Elgar
I'm going to assume you are related to Martha. I recently found Martha's obit. Am interested in getting particulars on James Homer Elgar and where the children are all buried. I found Walter Ross.

I am related - I think - through the Robertsons. I'm researching the McCoys/Swishers and Martha's mother was a Swisher.

I can't link brother to sister. I have both of them linked to their parents.

If you have any other information, please use the edit button on that person's memorial. It's a whole lot easier to make corrections from there.

RE: aquilla griffin
Jennifer, thank you so much for looking for the headstone. I'm a little confused myself. I have researched Aquilla, her last name should be Griffith not Griffin. According to the Jennings Co., Indiana Gen Web project she was buried in the Proving Ground Cemetery, Jennings Co., Indiana, then in the early 1940's was moved to Bethel Cemetery. Perhaps she doesn't have a headstone. Do you know of a Proving Ground Cemetery? Once again many thanks, Kate Taylor

RE: 13707582
Sarah Zimmerman's death record lists her name as Sarah Elizabeth Zimmerman. The informant on the death record was B.E. Zimmerman, most likely Boston Zimmerman her brother. The Kentucky death index also lists her name as Sarah E. Zimmerman. In the 1900 census she is listed as Sarah E., Jr. In the 1910 census she is listed as Sarah E. In the 1920 census she is listed as Sarah E. Jr. The census information would have been given by either her parents or herself. Although the name on the grave stone is Sary, the records indicate her given name was Sarah and Sary was a nickname. Sarah was the sister of my great great grandmother Matilda Jane Zimmerman.

RE: charley sidwell
I sent you two emails. I think I on Charley's headstone what I thought was a M initial for his mother is actual an M.D. initial after his father John's name. His father must have been a doctor. Let me know if you found your grandma's brother. I love those kind's of stories. Sorry the pictures are not the greatest. I do not have a fancy camera. I was there takig pictures of my own relatives and remembered when I seen the name Sidwell, that there was someone on findagrave wanting pictures. I just took them in case there were the one's being requested.

RE: name
Cemetery listings, to find a cemetery you need
to know what state, and county, and then call the
county court house and ask for a name buried
there. Most and usually in todays world court
houses keep a plat map and burial of all the cemeterys
in their county.
Back in the days of the WPA they did cemetery
surveys in countys and states and made listings of who were buried in
the cemeterys, ask the court house to look and
see if a persons name is on the WPA burial list.
If the court house gives you a hard time to do the
looking, get someone in the area to go for you to
the court house. Another way is the local librarys
in most countys have cemetery listings in books
people have done and sometimes the WPA books.
I can't remember off hand when the WPA act went into effect but think in the 1930's. But they
listed whole cemetery listings and gave copies to
court house.
Check local funeral homes and ask them how far
back they go on burial records and then ask for
a name of a relative.
