|RPT||RE: Barney Johnston|
Thanks for contacting me. I would be grateful for any info on Barney. This is what I have on him:
Barney was my Paternal 3x Great Grandfather. He was born somewhere in New York in 1805. He married Sarah Phelps in Rives Junction, Michigan September 7, 1842. He was 37. In 1850 they lived in Onondaga (Ingham County) Michigan. They had three children at the time: Yale 5 yrs, Theodore 3 yrs, and Asa 1 yr (Asa was my 2x Great Grandfather who served in the Civil War). The fourth child, Otto, was born in June of 1852. Barney owned 160 acres in Michigan and was a farmer. The story goes that Barney left the family in 1850 for the Gold Rush. He was supposedly never heard from again. I can't help but wonder about the last child, Otto. He wold have had to have been home in September of 1851 because of when Otto was born (unless Otto is not truly Barney’s child).
I'm not sure how accurate all of this is, but it mostly came from Ancestry.

Thank you so much for taking this picture for me!
|Patricia Endicott||RE: Lancaster Cemetery Lancaster Los Angeles County, Calif.|
Thank you so much; it would be great to have additional information for the McKay family, and to have photos of the headstones if there are any.
Since I live in Ontario, Canada, it is highly unlikely I will get to California very soon to get them myself.
Many thanks for what you do.

Re: The McKays
131763584 Jessie Irene
# 131763486 Kenneth John
This is a husband and wife who were both born in Canada; I have added them to my tree and just today found Jessie Irene buried in the above cemetery. I note that you do not have them linked together; the other McKay might be their daughter, but I have no record of her so cannot confirm. Perhaps more research will turn that up as well. If I find it, I will let you know. These are fairly far out on my tree so I am content to let you keep them. Thank you for making the record. Otherwise I would have had no idea what had happened to my Kenneth John McKay.

Thank you so much for the information you provided for Edna Pierce Norman Gilstrap, both the obit and the plot info. I appreciate your extra efforts.
It might be noted that the son, George Gilstrap, mentioned in her obituary, is not her biological son. He was her step son and the son of Wilson A. Gilstrap and his first wife, Ada May Doughty. They had 9 children. George's middle initial was listed as "G" on some document, but his middle name was apparently Stanley. I'm not sure that Edna had any children.

Thank you for posting for Helen Louise Bradley "tree location" for grave photo.
