Bio and Links
Bio Photo You are free to use my photo's as you please with the exception of adding them to another memorial or "grave site". Giving credit is the polite thing to do.

Do not add scanned obits. If Findagrave doesn't find them before I do I will have them removed! I may or may not transcribe them, but will not give credit. If you want it added you may transcribe it and send it through the edit tab.

When creating a memorial for a remarried woman, the last name is always whatever is on the marker, even if she has died under a different last name.

From FAQ's

Please do NOT add newspaper article or obituary scans. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you. Do not copy and post photographs from obituary or funeral home websites (unless you personally are the photographer), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records.


Memorial Naming Conventions:

First Name
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial. Do not include titles or other prefixes in the First Name field.

Middle Name
Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

A familiar name of the deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes. A nickname is different from the real name (first or middle).

Maiden Name
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and is only used if the individual was married and took the spouse's last name as their new last name. If the deceased was never married, then the last name is placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

Thanks for taking the time to look into this, greatly appreciated. My researching had led me to that conclusion, but another set of eyes to confirm is always appreciated. That Nancy passed in OK would explain why I hadn't found her yet. According to one the census records there were 2 other children born but appeared to have died in infancy, or between census records

And yes I did find that Clara was fist married to Thomas, and they had 4 children. Thank you
T C was the son of Morgan and Laurinda Richey, and was one of 10 children

Thank you again for looking into my query

Regards and Thanks
Tim D

May I pose a question regarding Cyrus Thorpe 137957536?

Do you know if this may be Thaddeus Cyrus Tharpe?
I have been tracing a Clara Edna Tharpe who's father is listed on her DC as TC Tharpe
He was married to Nancy Ann Howerton.
The TC Tharpe I have traced was the son of Morgan and Lucinda Tharpe. Born in Ohio March 1850 the family is in Atchison County in the 1860 & 1870 Census. In 1880 Thaddeus is in Allen County married. The obit states their were two daughters, which I believe are Susie May Tharpe b abt 1870 in Allen County, and Clara Edna Tharpe b 1886. Clara ended up marrying a 2nd great uncle of mine in Carroll County Missouri. Not sure if you know, but I have found it never hurts to ask. Thank you for your indulgence in my query. T. Draper

Nellie Harvey Williams
Thank you for the information you have put on find a grave.
I am trying to help my cousin find where her grandmother is buried.
Nellie Frances Harvey was married to Charles Edward Bates in 1902. He died in 1912 and she married L. J. Williams.
On her death certificate her name is Nellie Frances Williams and signed by L.J. Williams . Place of burial Gas City , Kansas
We are wondering if she is buried in the plot with Charles Bates and if there is a marker of any kind?
It states in the obituary you posted that there was a baby that died. Is there any information about where it was buried?

Thanking you in advance,

Joan Clark

Thank you for sending me this correction request. Of course I have to research it but I am sure it is correct because those other people in the obit are all my relatives. Were you just scrolling through microfilm or something? I am amazed and thankful. The only person who would have been able to confirm it passed away in Oct. So it is like a gift from the beyond and brought tears to my eyes.
