You are so welcome--and I have a surprise awaiting you in your e-mail :)
I was fairly direct in writing to the manager, and she sent me some Vig files (Vig was a German who kept STACKS of school tablets filled with details--and somebody sent that to her. I encouraged her to put that on Angeline Parker's bio, and am also going to forward the e-mails directly to you. Hope this helps in your research!

I am sorry about the photo requests for Fort Calhoun
I have access to burial records for Washington County, Nebraska, and there is no record for these ladies, either under their 1st or 2nd husband's names. The one had an obituary that said she and her husband were buried in Fort Calhoun, yet the records are not there for them (doesn't mean they AREN'T buried there, but there is no finding their graves except by pure chance, and there are people who walked that cemetery in years gone by, noting each stone).

I really liked what you wrote in your bio about finding out what isn't as well as what is. These two stones aren't there, and I wrote to the manager of the one without an obit suggesting that she move the memorial to Burial Unknown.

For that reason I did delete your requests, but was sorry. We do continue to add to our obituaries for Washington County, and perhaps an obit will show up to do with these ladies. The link to the Washington County obits is, and the burial records are there, too.

RE: A Special Thank-you
Thank you for the kind words about my work at the LBMC. My work has been published in a book called "Died in Long Beach-Cemetery tales" by Claudine Burnett. You can find it on or Ebay.
Thanks again.

Hi Jeff -- Sorry, but we don't have access to any of these photos. I'll keep your name on file in case I discover any that can be shared.

RE: Hello
Hi, Jeff :) I am not sure if my grandparents lived in the Long Beach area or not...I'm going to send that question to my mom...I know that they lived in Sacramento in 1940 and thought they had been there until moving to Kansas. I'd love to share any info that I have and perhaps get info that you may have gathered during your visit with her. Are we related? Thanks and take care. Kathy

Lyman Nestell
Lyman and his first wife Mary Louise Gibbs adopted Mary's nephew Edmund L Gibbs when Edmund was an infant. Edmund's parents were my great grandparents, Alfred Orville and Emma Jane Van Orden Gibbs.

Edmund is also buried in Rosedale Cemetery. I found a photo of his stone. When I went back on findagrave I couldn't find it.

I have a lot of information on Lyman. You may contact me at

Susannah Kent Burson
What I can tell you is that Joseph Burson was a witness to the application for a Revolutionary War pension for Thomas Kent who lived in Columbiana County, Ohio and who later died in Bryan Williams County, Ohio. This Thomas Kent, I believe, is my ancestor and am currently using DNA to confirm with the Kent project on FTDNA.

Joseph Burson had a son named Jehu who married Anne Kent who was a daughter of this Thomas Kent. I do not know if Thomas had a daughter Susannah but it is certainly conceivable as brothers and sisters often married. Her birth date would fit.

Is this an ancestor of yours? If you find any additional confirming information please let me know.

RE: South Street Cemetery versus Silver Street Cemetery Coventry CT
Well I'm afraid I'm going to have to "tap out" on this one. I looked in every darn site that I could think of. Even looked at Ancestry's Public Trees (which are riddled with mistakes) for any hints or clues...but no luck.

There are a whole bunch of newspaper notices..but no cemetery listed in Hale's survey.

He lived in South Coventry...nice photo that you included of his house...and Nathan Hale Cemetery is just a few miles away. So if he was buried in a cemetery, it would probably be there. Lucinda was buried in South Street Cemetery..but most likely his 2nd wife Clarinda wouldn't have him buried there. He had married Clarinda around 1831 and then died 7 years later. There were small children in the household at that time..and perhaps there was no money for a formal burial or gravestone for him.

Sorry I wasn't able to help more,

South Street Cemetery versus Silver Street Cemetery Coventry CT
I have had this question before...and it is confusing!!

The problem is (for many CT. towns) street names have changed and cemetery names have changed since Hale did the surveys in the 1930's.

What is Hale's 804-3 Silver Street Cemetery is now called South Street Cemetery (and has also been called Holy Grove Cemetery at one time and it now has a sign calling it Old South Burying Ground...even further confusing the issue!!). It is a lovely cemetery...270+ longer used for burials...surrounded by a stone wall.

What is Hale's 804-7 Old Cemetery is now called Silver Street Cemetery (and has also been called Carpenter Cemetery). A tiny cemetery with 35+ gravestones..also no longer used..surrounded by a stone wall...on the corner of a family farm.

If you look at the map on the cemetery page on Find A'll see that Silver Street ends and South Street is to the left and right now...and it shows where the cemeteries are located.

Rest assured that Humphrey and Alice Whaley are buried in South Street Cemetery.

Hope this clears up any confusion..please let me know if you have any more questions,

Elijah Burson
I found an old photo of a "Grandpa Burson" taken by a photographer in Carey, Ohio and was wondering if this could be Elijah Burson, 1807-1886 of Wharton, Ohio. Any connection to you?
