Anslyn (Chico Cem)
Here is obit for the wife ... and I found daughter: Louisa Martha (Anslyn) Axtell, at Masonic Cem, Sacramento County (have requested SAC corrections/augments)

Chico Daily Record, Tuesday Morning, February 19, 1907, pg 5 col 3: Death of Sarah Elizabeth Ansley. Sarah Elizabeth Anslyn, wife of J.H. Anslyn, died very suddenly at the family home on Laburnum street, between Fourth and Fifth avenues, Chico Vecino, early Sunday morning, death being due to an attack of heart failure combined with other afflictions.

Deceased was a native of Ray county, Missouri, where she was born on January 23, 1850. Her maiden name was Sarah Elizabeth Lee. She came to California and settled at Chico two years and five months ago. She leaves several children, among them being Mrs. S.T. Axtell of this city.

The funeral will be held from the Christian Church this afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, Rev. G.L. Lobdell officiating. The deceased had been a member of the Rebekahs of Stanberry, Mo., and the local lodge will attend the funeral in a body.

I noticed the note you left on the grave of W.V. Williams/McFall Cemetery. William Vest Williams was my great-great uncle. I would be happy to share what information I have.

Samuel Ellis Descendants
Hi Karen,

I noticed your flowers on Mary Belle Stockwell Kerlin and wondered if you were related to her? Belle is the grand daughter of Samuel and Jane Todd Ellis buried in Coffey Cemetery, Daviess, Missouri. I am looking for descendants with information on that couple, or do you know who may know. Since Belle's mother, Amanda Stockwell was the daughter of Samuel and Jane Ellis, and she cared for Jane Ellis before her death, I am searching for the person(s) that would have received any family tree information or photos that may have been passed down. Please contact me through
Vickie Dodd

PS I am a descendant through Amanda Ellis Stockwell's brother, Edward L. Ellis.

Elijah Moore (1784-1859)
Karen, once upon a time we were in contact about the Moore family. I ran across some of your memorials and thought I should say hi.

My research has found probate records for the estate of Elijah and I continue to try to learn further about my Moore line. I do not come up with much else on Elijah.

If you'd like to further communicate, I am at your service.

Probable Error
I think there is probably an error on a memorial that you maintain although it was created by someone else.

The memorial in question is #18234608
Martha E Hayen Lee

Martha is shown married to Leonard T Lee which I believe is probably correct.

She is also shown married to James Marcus Potter
Find a Grave Memorial # 46268954 which I believe is incorrect.

As can be seen from his gravestone he was married to a Martha D. ratherthan a Martha E. James' wife's full name was Martha Dorothy Snead Potter.

Note also that James has both of his wives listed on his gravestone, and does not include a third.

I believe eliminating James' name from her bio is all that is needed to correct the problem.
