RE: Josephine H. Lee-Sherwood-Shipman-Dean

I apologize that I am just replying back to you after almost a year. I don't spend much time on Findagrave much anymore.

I have never been to Box Elder Cemetery. I did do a Photo request for Josephine and her brother John Lee. A few years back a F.A.G. member did get back to me and she could not find stones for either of them. I always thought it was in Missouri, but Find A Grave has it in Arkansas.

I tried tracking down obits for both of them because I seen an old tree on and the owner mentioned helpful information that was listed in John's obit. I tried contacting them, but got no reply. I also tried the library in Hornersville Missouri but they couldn't find obits for them.

One of the things I would love to find is Mariah's maiden name.

Best Wishes,

Hello. I was wondering if you could please get a picture of Charles Schmidt's tombstone please. He is my 2nd great grandfather. And I want to see if it has a wife listed.

RE: Elmwood

If that's OK with you, I'd be happy to have you transfer the following McKees in Elmwood to me:
65340291 (I suggest you delete this, as it is the same as 65339427)

RE: Elmwood Cem. Photo Request
Nothing at either of the 2 plots I listed?


Thanks anyways :) Do you happen to know if her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Marechal, have a stone(s) at their plot locations, as given on their memorial pages? (290-0040-07-0 and 290-0040-08-0)

RE: Elmwood Cem. Photo Request
Thanks for the reply! I'm in totally no hurry at all, so thanks for just replying at all :) I have another request though, sorry...would you, when you go, also be able to get photo(s) of Mary M Gettelman (or Gettleman)'s parents, Peter and Mary E. Marechal? [After 1st husband, James Scates, died, she remarried a Mr. Gettelman, or Gettleman.] They are linked to from Mary M's page and their memorial pages show what their plots are. Also, if Mary M is not at the plot I listed in my last message, she may be at 460-0290-07-A instead.

Thanks again :)

Have a good one,
Kevin Purkaple

I have info via a family story that JOHN A RACKHAM 1874-1911 is supposed to be buried there with his parents; Thomas T Rackham 1827-1898 & Sarah Ann "Annie" Brown Rackham 1842-1907. There is a photo of their headstone but not site or plot attached. Do you have time to galavant around to look?
Respectfull request,Paulette
