I have been working on my genealogy for over 40 years. During my travels across the nation, I go camping and visit cemeteries. My dad and I have been taking photos of grave stones in Indiana, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois and Michigan, we have been tracing our family across the nation. Now, I not only take photographs of family stones but I enjoy documenting and photographing cemeteries for Find A Grave.

Could you please add this obituary from the Aurora Newspaper to Adonijah Chapman page.
Adonijah B. Chapman was born May 7, 183, at Center Graton, Conn., and died at Phillips July 20, 1913, aged 82 years, 2 months and 13 days. He was married November 11 1868 at Sandusky, Ohio, His wife surviving him. To this union were born four children, three girls and one son, William A, who resides in Phillips. The daughter preceded him in death " Grandpa" Chapman, as he was familiarly called, was a fine old man of beautiful Christian character. Although totally blind for many years, he was cheerful, happy and contented, He and his aged wife lived alone until the past year when they moved to their son's home. He passed quietly away quietly away after suffering a few short days following a stroke of paralysis. The funeral service was held from the Baptist church, of which deceased was a member, Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Rev. Sterns of Grand Island preached an appropriate sermon and favorite hymns were sung by the choir. At the conclusion of the service the body was laid to rest in the St. Joe cemetery. A large crowd was in attendance at the funeral. Much sympathy is felt for the aged wife in the loss of her life companion and for the son and his family. May the comfort of One who consoles in hours of sadness brings peace to their hearts. Thank You. Greg Wood

RE: Buckingham Moore
It turns out Buckingham Moore's murder was quite a significant event here in Saint Paul. He had been using an alias when he arrived here on business and it took the police a few days to discover his real identity and the murderer. I will get a link for you with the online newspaper stories.

RE: Buckingham Moore
You are welcome.

I know something of early Saint Paul but have not heard of an area called the cow sheds in 1886. I assume it was along the river where the trains and boats were unloaded. When I have time I will go look up any local news stories on his murder.

Loren L Baughman
Dear Leslie,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the National Directory of the 355th Infantry, Loren Baughman was a member of this unit.

I'm not sure where I'm going with this project, but I'm wanting to know if it's permissible to use your photograph of the grave of Loren L. Baughman (Find A Grave Memorial# 39879383) for any publication I might get?

Thank you!

RE: Caleb Moore
I will check again when I return to Oxford, which will be a month or so. Sorry for any confusion. The cemetery records included a Dr. C.B. Moore, with "(Caleb)" associated with it. The records in findagrave identify those names as two individuals, not one and the same. I will seek clarification for you and let you know, but it will be awhile before we are back there. Thanks.

Caleb Moore
Good afternoon,
I posted a photo of the only Caleb Moore gravesite in the Oxford west cemetery according to cemetery records. The middle initial and dates, however, do not match your dates, so I am in the process of learning how to delete photos and will remove them as soon as I figure it out....

Good afternoon Leslie; I am a Vermont Civil War buff, living in the north/central part of Vt.. I am presently working on a project to identify the last resting places of many "Old Soldiers" of the C.W. that had any ties to this state.I have found that you have contributed several photo's of monuments/ markers for Find A Grave Memorial pages for some of these patriots. I am asking you if I may use these photo's to be posted on the Vermont Civil War site? (

You would receive credit for this.

Thank you for your consideration.
