Hi Lillie: Would you be able to link

Barbara Stoner Drescher Find A Grave Memorial# 7905262 with her mother's grave memorial? Barbara's mother is Find A Grave Memorial# 7861248

Chathrina Stenner

Chathrina Stenner (listed in 1850 & 1860 LaGrange, Lewis County Census as Catherine Stoner)was born in 1806 and died Feb 26, 1874. She was 68 years old.
Catharine Stenner arrived in the U.S. on 14 Aug 1846 with her husband Jacob( Jacob died between 1846-1850)and son John, and daughters Catherine, Barbary, and Apalonia Stenner.Port of Arrival:New York and Place of Origin:Deutschland: Benzheim, Germany. Son, John Stoner married Anne W. Crowley and moved to Knox County, Mo. Daughter Catherine married George Wiesemann, Jr., Barbary or Barbara married Jacob Drescher , Jr, Apalonia or Abbie married Louis Klusmeier.

Barbara Stenner/Stoner is my gg grandfather's sister. I have traced the Stenner family back to Germany and found Jacob Stenner's baptism and parents and other generations. It is unknown where Jacob was buried. The name was changed to Stoner by the 1850 Census.

My name is Patrick Warford, my mother is Stella Kilbride Warford, my grandmother Florence Stoner Kilbride, my g grandfather John Crowley Stoner, my gg grandfather John Stenner/Stoner (who married Annie W Crowley) and my ggg grand parents Jacob Stenner/Stoner and Catherine Stenner/Stoner. Catherine is buried next to her Sister Ann and brother-in-law George Wiesemann on the Lahr Farm in LaGrange, Lewis County, Missouri.

Thank you,

Patrick Warford

Hi Lillie
We've communicated many times before and I know you and I are connected via my father's Cunningham family in Indiana, but just realized you posted the memorial for Thomas Hugh Brennan. Are we also connected via my husband's Brennan family?!

Facinated! ~Lisa

RE: George W Forrest
You wrote, "This is as recorded in the Lewis Co Cemetery Book. I know this was done occasionally, probably to save money."

I don't understand the reference. We know that my 2XGreat Grandfather was Henry Miller Forrest and his father was George from the death certificate. Do you have more information on George Forrest? I can find two in Missouri at about the right time.

Alvey Family history
Hi Lillie,

My great grandmother was Mary Ellen Alvey. Her great grandparents appear to be Joseph Alvey and Nancy Anne Riney. There is a problem with the marriage date for Joseph and Nancy or Nancy's birthdate is incorrect. Marriage is estimated to have occured in 1768 but Nancy's birthdate is listed as 1760. No children are born until 1784. Have you found any documentation on these dates?

Thank you,

Judy Varley

RE: St. Patrick Simpson's
I got the obit or death notice for Leo and it said he was buried in St. Marysville Cemetery.
Ken Fitzpatrick found the cemetery to be in Illinois and it had Simpson's in it to.
Also gave the correct deathdate for Ben Leo. Never found stone for Ben Leo at St. Patrick.
