I enjoy placing flowers on as many memorials as possible. Everyone needs to be remembered.

Mary Luella Romick Dates?
Hello Betty,

This is a little out of the blue, but I wanted to contact you to clear up a little mystery and authentication issue I've run into. In trying to authenticate a set of journals written by a Mary Selzer of Des Moines from 1909 to 1918, I've come across a reference to a Miss Luella Romick who was buried in Evergreen Cemetery in 1912. She may have been a friend of Ms. Selzer's, I'm not sure, but she speaks fondly of her and talks about a few details of her service, namely that they were performed in part by a Mr. Younge. My question is however, Mary Selzer wrote about these services on April 23, 1912 - incidentally in a journal entry directly following one detailing the events of the Titanic disaster one week before, hence my interest in authenticating these journals. She states clearly that Miss Romick died on the 20th of April at the age of 32. Is it possible that the date of death on Miss Romick's stone is incorrect in saying she died in November? I can send photos of the page in question if you like.

Thank you for your time,

Will Kindler

RE: James Vernon and Joanna Tinsley
I don't see anything that resembles proof--just that somebody said it. In all the years I have researched James and Anna, I have never seen anybody document their dates or their birth places.

The b est I can say is James died between 13 Dec. 1825 when he sold land to his son, Nehemiah, and
2 Nov. 1829. when an advertisement was written advertising a proposed settlement The ad was published on 9 December 1829.

I would be interested if anyone could prove Anna died in Jefferson County as that is the year James moved to Indiana. The best I can say is there is no older female in his household in 1820.

I would be skeptical of Lunenburg County as it exists today as a birth place. The Vernon family in general is said to be associated with the Cub Creek Quaker meeting. That is in neighboring Charlotte County, which was carved from Lunenburg in 1756. But this is all a guess since the Vernon family in general was in this area.

I see a bunch of Family trees on Ancestry that give his birth as 1745 in Lunenburg and his death as 1829 in Jefferson. Some call him James Richard. It looks like they have generally copied from each other.

Many have "sources" but most of these are only general records that prove nothing

I remain to be convinced.

James and Anna Tinsley Vernon
I am curious as to the sources of birth and death dates for James and Anna Tinsley Vernon and any authority placing James' birthplace specifically in Lunenburg County.

Hiram Baker, Lean V. Baker
Hi! I'm just getting ready to post gravestone photos for Hiram Baker and Lean V. Baker from Canby Cemetery. I wanted to let you know that there seems be some disagreement about dates involving them. For Hiram Baker, the Find A Grave listing says 1870-1914. The listing at the entrance of Canby Cemetery says 1872-1918. But the stone seems to say October 13, 1870-September 5,1913. Regarding Lean V. Baker, the Find A Grave listing has her name as LeeAnn, but both the cemetery listing and the stone spell it Lean V. Baker. And regarding dates, the Find a Grave listing says 1876-1911, the cemetery listing says 1878-1911, and the stone seems to say July 24, 1878-January 22, 1911. It doesn't show up well in the photos because the stones are rather worn, but their first names are on the angled tops of the stones.

Hope this helps!

Hi Betty; My Grandma's sister Dora Schuback married Edwin Romick in 1908. She had 3 boys; William B-1910; Edwin B-1913; Charles B 1916. William lived in Michigan; Edwin in California, Both are gone now. I have been looking for Charles for years now. Just wondering if there could be a connection to your Charles?

Dear Betty
In the McDonough History book it states that Sarah Logan Black Hainline was the first baby born in McDonough Co however on her Find A Grave page it states Schuyler Co. I was wondering if you had info disputing the history book
