photo request
Hi, I noticed that you have taken a few headstone photos in Troqueer Graveyard and was wondering if it is at all possible to take one of the following for me when you have some time and you are in the area. According to Troqueer Memorial Inscriptions it is #639. "In memory of Lillias Irvina beloved daughter of James & Irvina MCCULLOCH .....[flat stone fallen & very overgrown]" We were there in July and somehow missed it, didn't have the # at that point.
Thank you for your help.

RE: Clarance Bass
It seems as if that is the right person, my cousin gave me the date and perhaps he isn't reading it correctly. The parents of Clarence were Thomas E. and Mary A. Bass. Please send me the picture of the stone. Thanks for checking, I really appreciate your time taken on this request. Juanita Chrz

Capt. James Clark
The Memorial on Find-A-Grave lists Capt. James Clark as Capt. David Clark, yet on the memorial it says "James". Am I mistaken? Also, it lists his son David as born in 1855. I have David's birth record from Rerrick Parish, listing him born in 1845, the twin of James Clark, Jr.. Do you know what happened to James, Jr.? Thank you for posting this memorial. It was wonderful to see it. It is a long way from Kansas to Scotland, but maybe someday...
Thank you again for your help.

RE: Margaret Thomson/Andrew Hepburn
Yes there are a lot of their children who obviously died in infancy but no dates or anything. But one of his children from his second wife Jemima Martin is John Martin Hepburn who died 26th Nov 1837 aged 11.
Also on the other stone is Jemima Martin who died 25th Sept 1868 aged 80.
Also Jemima Hepburn born 15th Oct 1819 and died 26th March 1902.

Photo request

Do you take photos of graves for people who request them?
If so I would request a photo of graves in Troqueer Churchyard, Maxwelltown, Dumfries.
The graves are for Margaret Thomson wife of Andrew Hepburn and one for Andrew Hepburn.
They are quite easy to find and are next to one another. Walking round the church in a clockwise direction they are close to the path on the left hand side just before you reach the corner of the Church. They are between two sets of low railings which run at rightangles to the path.
I wish I could be more specific.

Much obliged if you would do this for me. Thanks.

Robert Conchar
Just wanted to let you know that Robert Conchar, born 18 March 1840 in Crossmichael to James Conchar and Mary Macclellan, married Agnes Barbour on 8 February 1864 in St Peter (Bradford Cathedral) in Bradford, Yorkshire.
Agnes Barbour was born about 1836 in Stewarton, Ayrshire, to Humphrey Barbour and Marion Robertson.
Robert and Agnes do not seem to have had any children.
Robert died at Woodview, Bingley, Yorkshire on 19 March 1916. Probate was granted to his nephew Alexander Barbour, and to the postmaster.
Agnes also died early in 1916, sometime in the first quarter, in Keighley - so presumably also at Woodview, Bingley.
I don't know where they are buried, however.

I notice that you have taken photos for Crossmichael Parish Churchyard. Would it be possible for you to take photos for me of the stone(s) for James Porter (Find A Grave Memorial # 104803974) and his wife Grace Tait (Find A Grave Memorial # 104804039)? Thank you for your consideration of this request.

I looked through the Goshen Center cemetery today and wasn't able to locate her. Many of the older stones are hard to read. If you have any clues as to where to look it may help. Perhaps she is buied near her Parents? Do you know her Parents names? I will keep looking next time I'm in Goshen.

I tried to see where I could send an email but didn't see an address. I'm researching a line on my husband's family and after finding what I thought were his ancestors, I'm thoroughly confused and wondering if you could help. I've been working on the family of Caroline Virginia "Carrie" Chase b. 26 Oct 1860 in IL, d. 9 Aug 1923 in Minneapolis, Hennepin, MN. She m. Joseph B. Greene 2 May 1880 in Clayton co., IA. Her death certificate lists her parents as William Chase & Sarah Clark. I've found (what I thought was?) them, twice in 1860 right before Carrie was born. There is a Wm. A. Chase, 28, b. MD, farm laborer with Jacob & Sarah Clark in Rockvale, Ogle, IL on 22 Jun 1860. Also there is daughter Sarah, 30, b. IL. Then on 10 Jul 1860 in Pine Creek, Ogle, IL, William & Sarah Chase are in the household of Hiram Motter (whom Wm. was living with in 1850 also). Then in 1880 in Edgwood, Clayton, IA, is where I find Joseph & Carrie (Chase) Greene, several households down, there's Jacob & Sarah (whom I was thinking are her grandparents). You've got Sarah A. Clark, their daughter, married to Elisha Wood so now I'm thoroughly confused! Especially since my William & Sarah (Clark) Chase are in Oregon, Ogle, IL with kids Carrie, Ida, George, Lucy, Sarah & William in the 1870 census by the time that your Sarah Clark Wood would've died. I've been trying to find more on William Chase as in 1850 he is from MD, living with Hiram Motter of MD, and Wm. is listed as mulatto. In 1860 no race is listed, in 1865 he is found in Ogle co., IL with family (marked, not named) under Free Persons of Color, and finally in 1870 he is listed as Black, the rest of the family as White. I haven't been able to find them or any kids after 1870 besides Carrie. Sorry this is so long, please email me at knifeprty78[at]

Elizur Burnes or Burns
I went to Chatham Center Rural Cemetery this weekend. I was able to find the Harris Family Plot. Here are the persons buried there. Albert Harris and his wife Lucy A. Burns. Laura C. Harris. Albert B. Harris and his wife Nellie Huested. Mae Come, Levi W. Burns and Mary L. Burns were all three listed on the 4th side of the memorial. No sign of Elizur Burnes or Burns. I did not see him anywhere else in my walk thru the cemetery. If you want dates for the above listed let me know.

Belden Bradley
Hi TL - I've done a lot of work with the census, so I suppose I probably saw him with his parents in the 1900 census. I will check again next time I'm at the library. If you look, you will see I added his father today (Belden is linked) and the newspaper article on the father's death mentions two sons Belden B and Horace B (although the initial "B" is incorrect - Belden was Belden George and Horace was Horace Ernest). Also added grandmother Sarah Bradley today - interesting that the newspaper calls Charles D an "adopted" son. I don't have a close relationship to the Bradleys, believe I was more interested in the Bartholmes when I came across them.

Re: Florence Gleason
I do have the original photo. But I can tell you that the other headstone says George (Find A Grave Memorial# 68235541. I have also cross checked at the historical society to make sure I got names correct.

Sorry I didn't bring the news you were hoping for. If you like I can look for the original picture file.
