RE: Family member biographies
Thank you. I'll have to look into this - the Woods are related through marriage with my Browns. Hmmm. maybe this will end up being my family - I have so many trails to follow - I think I'm related to everyone in Henderson County which really makes sense - when you have members of large families marrying each other.

IOOF Cemetery Location
The IOOF Cemetery is located off Hwy. 6 less than 1 mile east of Hurdland, MO. Turn right (south) on Blacktop A, go one-fourth mile. Cemetery is on east side of road, a well maintained flat location.

If you need anything else, let me know. Alberta

RE: Phebe Huston Coghill
Thank you. If you run across anyone I have, let me know. I've been digging out my old obituaries that I used to collect out of papers and adding them to peoples Find A Grave sites.

RE: Phebe Huston Coghill
Sure. It's good to hear from you. I have some Hustons - I might as well work on them this winter. Let me know if there are any you want transferred. You're doing a great job.

RE: Sharon Bartels
You're welcome, I'm glad I could help! Also, next to Sharon was a marker for Lyle and Grace Briggs.I don't know if you know these names or are interested in them, but I added a photo to their memorial pages, so you can check them out too.

Floyd Crow photo request.
Hi Ruth, long time no 'see'. I just wanted you to know that I tried to get a photo of Floyd's marker today, but there is no marker. At least, if the location is correct, then there is no marker. In lot 427 there are two unmarked graves, and I'm not sure which one is Floyd's. I will upload a photo of the area. The unmarked graves are on either side of the marker that is in the center of the photo.

I hate when this happens. Sorry this was not a more positive outcome.

Best regards,

RE: Evelyn (Schwisow) Nolte
Hi Ruth, sorry for the delay in responding. I did not have any luck finding a burial place for her in the online obituaries or funeral home notices. I'm wondering if she was cremated and the ashes were buried elsewhere, or they were buried with her parents at the Fairbury Cemetery. Did you have any luck with contacting the church?

Bartels @ St Paul's
I've added photos for the 3 Bartels children at St Pauls near Plymouth, but all of them are nearly illegible in places. A couple of the names are difficult to read, but as I was in the correct location per the directory, and the dates that I could read matched, I decided that these were the correct stones.

I didn't have any foil or anything else to help read the stones, but will try the next time I'm there.

If you think any of them are wrong just let me know and I'll delete the photos.

Sorry I couldn't do any better with these!

George & Fannie Duke GM
You offered to transfer both Fanny & Lewis Duke to me a while back. They're my great grandparents. I've found a few things & I'd like to update their bios, but I can submit the updates through edits also. Thanks for considering the transfer.

RE: Smith family markers at Phillips Cemetery
I did check the Find a Grave records and saw Elizabeth Mildred Gilmour Jewett ( b. Sept.4, 1831 - d. Nov. 19, 1897)is buried in Phillips Cemetery. She is buried next to her two children. She married John R. Jewett. She would be buried in the row ahead of Mary Ann Smith.

RE: Smith family markers at Phillips Cemetery
Sorry it took so long to respond to you.

Thank you for catching my error on Mary Ann Smith. I have since made the correction and changed the 6 mos. to now read 5 mos.

Elizabeth is not buried next to the Smith's. In the picture that shows the 4 Smith graves, if you look near the top of the picture you'll see a row
of grave stones ( actually 2 rows ). These grave stones are the Jewett's. I'm not certain, but I think I saw an Elizabeth Jewett. If you give me Elizabeth info., middle initial, DOB, DOD, etc. I'll go back out and take a look and photograph if you like.

RE: John Randolph Jewett, Phillips Cemetery
In the local history room here in Rockford there is a picture frame with 90 or so photos. They are of most of the men that belonged to the Early Settlers Society here in Winnebago County. Last Spring I photographed those photos and put them on Find A Grave. That is where the photo of Mr. Jewett comes from. I did minimal research to ID and match the photos. If there is a bio on Mr. Jewett around I do not know of it although it is possible. Sorry I cannot help you further.

RE: John Randolph Jewett, Phillips Cemetery
I am sorry I cannot read it all either. I will be happy to transfer this memorial to you for updating if you would like.
Next time we are in the area, I will try to get a better picture for you.

Frederick Heinrich Wilhelm Haake
Happy to send you the information on Annette Davies.

Now wonder if you know who the father and mother of Frederick Heinrich Haake were? Also what is our connection to Jobst and Anna Marie (Stuebe) Haake.

I have wedding pictures for Herman Henry & Eleanora (Doehring) Haake who were married May 24, 1909. But I don't know their connection.

Also have a wedding picture for Fred and Anna (Haake) Tegeler taken Sep 25, 1913.

Hope you might be able to shed some light on these people. Bev

RE: Photos from Indiantown Gap National
Hi Ruth,

You're very welcome. Glad we could help. As far as the duplicate memorials....the person who created the memorial and knew what cemetery she was buried in is the one who gets to keep the memorial. At least that was my understanding as to how this works.

Have a good weekend.

RE: Evelyn Tiemann
The cemetery does list Evelyn as being buried there.Her husband has a temporary marker that was never replaced with a stone. I suspect Evelyn's was destroyed by lawn mowers. I have seen other temporary markers laying in pieces around the cemetery. The son Franklin is buried there as well and has a good stone marker. I suspect Evelyn is buried between son and husband.

Lewis Duke Jr.
You're welcome. I found the date in a CA death record & entered it into ancestry before it found the record also.

Thank you for all the work you've done -- it's helping me get a much better idea of my Duke roots. Lewis & Fannie are 3x grandparents.

Baby 2 Stevens
Mildred and Baby Stevens are two different people. However, the person who added the photos to both put the same photo on both entries. I don't know why. I didn't add the photos so I couldn't tell you. You may want to contact the person who added the photos.

Hi Ruth,

I spent two days photograhing Sandy Creek Cemetery, I uploaded every headstone I could make out. There are a few funeral home markers and a few headstones that are not readable. His is one that should fall under the funeral home markers, since he died in 2009. You may have to contact the Church to see what plot number, he is. If they can tell you that and who is on either side of him, I would go look again. Do you have a copy of the death cert., perhaps it has a plot #. Or perhaps Charlet. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Ruth did the sexton tell you if any of the Blanchards graves were unmarked because I only have a photo for Bertie. It is possible I missed them when I stopped for the day and maybe forgot where I left off when I went back. I think it's add the are all in a Blanchard plot with only one Blanchard marker. If you talk to the sexton again ask him who is buried in the lot and if possible can he tell you if the graves are marked. I have badgered his three times this week so I am hesitant to call him again right now. Let me know because I want to go back and get the rest of them if we can find out if the graves have markers.
