Charlotte Morford Woodworth
Find A Grave 789162, I have been researching the children of my 3x Great-Grandfather Daniel Morford who married Catherine Vandruff. On everything I have found about Daniel's children it includes Charlotte. On the memorial you created it shows her father as William G. Morford. Can you tell me where you found that information? If Charlotte is not Daniel's daughter I will correct my records. Thank you.

I wonder if you are related to any Missouri Moss's?

My maternal grandmother came from a large extended Moss family in Missouri and Indiana.

If interested I will share other info, if not, have a very nice day. Thank you.

Fayette MARKS
Dear Ruth I am a very active Genealogist FindAGrave member and Cemetery preservationist. I restored a cemetery in Shabbona Iiilinois where I live. One of the persons buried in the cemetery is William Marks and I am gathering information on him and his family. Iíve done pretty well with this but William had a son Fayette who was born in New York in 1816 and lived in Shabbona in 1880 but all of a sudden he is in Fremont Nebraska and from piecing together info from here and there he dies on 12 Dec 1890 and is buried in an unmarked grave in the Ridge Cemetery there ! What I need help with is : 1. Is this true ( he is not on the FindAGrave list for the cemetery ) 2. Is his wife buried there ? 3. He is listed as a Civil War vet why does he not have a stone and the list I saw has no unit listed ? 4. ANYTHING else you can shed on this !
5. Is there a sexton or place where the records are held for the cemetery ?
Thanks for all you do ! Jim Stewart
