Are you a family member? I have been researching and sending in edits, and receiving some of them to manage. I do not need to manage them after an edit is done, would you like them?

Leslie. I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. We had many conversations via email and was always willing to help me out with all my relatives in the Oaklandon Cemetery. If you are maintaining his Find A Grave site, thank you for all the updates.
Sincerely, Pat

The daughter preceded him in death " Grandpa" Chapman, as he was familiarly called, was a fine old man of beautiful Christian character. Although totally blind for many years, he was cheerful, happy and contented, He and his aged wife lived alone until the past year when they moved to their son's home. He passed quietly away quietly away after suffering a few short days following a stroke of paralysis. The funeral service was held from the Baptist church, of which deceased was a member, Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Rev. Sterns of Grand Island preached an appropriate sermon and favorite hymns were sung by the choir. At the conclusion of the service the body was laid to rest in the St. Joe cemetery. A large crowd was in attendance at the funeral. Much sympathy is felt for the aged wife in the loss of her life companion and for the son and his family. May the comfort of One who consoles in hours of sadness brings peace to their hearts. Thank You. Greg Wood

RE: Buckingham Moore
It turns out Buckingham Moore's murder was quite a significant event here in Saint Paul. He had been using an alias when he arrived here on business and it took the police a few days to discover his real identity and the murderer. I will get a link for you with the online newspaper stories.

Added by StPaulGuy on Oct 22, 2016 3:06 PM

RE: Buckingham Moore
You are welcome.

I know something of early Saint Paul but have not heard of an area called the cow sheds in 1886. I assume it was along the river where the trains and boats were unloaded. When I have time I will go look up any local news stories on his murder.

Loren L Baughman
Dear Leslie,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the National Directory of the 355th Infantry, Loren Baughman was a member of this unit.

I'm not sure where I'm going with this project, but I'm wanting to know if it's permissible to use your photograph of the grave of Loren L. Baughman (Find A Grave Memorial# 39879383) for any publication I might get?

Thank you!

RE: Caleb Moore
I will check again when I return to Oxford, which will be a month or so. Sorry for any confusion. The cemetery records included a Dr. C.B. Moore, with "(Caleb)" associated with it. The records in findagrave identify those names as two individuals, not one and the same. I will seek clarification for you and let you know, but it will be awhile before we are back there. Thanks.

Caleb Moore
Good afternoon,
I posted a photo of the only Caleb Moore gravesite in the Oxford west cemetery according to cemetery records. The middle initial and dates, however, do not match your dates, so I am in the process of learning how to delete photos and will remove them as soon as I figure it out....

Samuel M Cole
Thank you for posting the tombstone photos of my Great-Great-Great-Great Grandpa Samuel M. Cole in Concord Cemetery. I am a direct descendant of his, his son was my Great-Grandfather's Dad and I would not have found his tombstone image without your help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. He was a Union Civil War Soldier and died while on leave from measles and pneumonia. Grandma Sarah Jane (Jack) Cole took care of him and was at his side when he passed away. He was part of the Cole Family from Johns Twp, just outside Centerville, Appanoose Co, Iowa.

Federated Cemetery
Hi Leslie, I just happened to notice the message you left on S. Shepards page regarding the Federated Cemetery. I just wanted to let you know that I was the one who entered the information on the main page about the cemetery. All of it came off of the MACRIS website. When a photo is added of the sign I can go and change the name of the cemetery on the Find A Grave website. I'm pretty sure it was called the Federated Cemetery because of its location. If it is actually the town of Ashland that takes care of the cemetery I can also update that information on the page. I would just rather wait until a sign photo is added before changing anything. Thank you. Denise.
