RE: Bolda family
my email

I have about 11 BOLDA's DNA connected buried in Mt Olivet.

I was told that my Great Grand Mother, Anna Kupferschmidt - Bolda hand many babies that died young or were still birth and buried close to her.

I was always told about the 5 surviving, my grand father and his 4 siblings. I found 3 other names, all girls and died in infancy.

One was only listed in a registry.
Frances Bolda 1891-1891

Josephine Bolda 4/3/1903-4/8/1903 buried 4/9/1903
Was suppose to buried at Holy Cross,(as noted on Death Cert) I called Holy Cross, and they have no record and seem to think she is at Mt Olivet. FindAGrave_122409100

Marie Bolda 3/20/1900-3/20/1900
Find A Grave_122419775 at Olivet.

I think their graves are unmarked, which seemed to be common with a lot of my Bolda's.

I went on the Mt Olivet site, and just starting adding all the names that were my Family names.

that is why YOUR family was added. Was hoping that someone would find them.. and Here you are!

RE: August Bolda
Oh how wonderful!!, He sure was Handsome.

I transferred August Bolda # 127753421 To YOU!

As I do not think I have any DNA with this BOLDA.

I do have MANY Family BOLDA's resting in Mount Olivet.

I just went ahead and added other BOLDA's hoping their Families would find them.. and it worked!

Hope your day is awesome!

RE: Two graves for David Robert Galbreath
No need to transfer...just noticed that there were two graves. I do the same thing! When I come across a cemetery, a book or online listing, I check to see if the graves are at findagrave.If they are, great! If they aren't, I add them, listing the sourse if I didn't walk the cemetery. Nice to meet a fellow grave lover!

Two graves for David Robert Galbreath
The first listing is 114545825 on a double stone with his second, Ruth Fern Roach, at Midway United Methodist Church in Adamsville. There is no death date, only the birth date of Jun. 9, 1902.

Then I found your entry and discovered what happened. David had first married 27737036 Margaret Lucille Braden on 27 November 1930 in St. Clair County, AL. Would you kindly add her first name and link them?

Anyway, David and Lillian had this daughter:
Mary Ruth Galbreath 1933 - 08 Jun 1933

When Lucille died in 1946, he married his second wife, Ruth Fern Roach. I cannot find a marriage date. I believe that when Ruth died, he had his name carved on the stone with hers, but by his death, he or his daughter changed their mind, and he was buried next to his first wife. I have help his memorial at Midway because his wife is buried there and his name is on that stone. I just wanted you to know what I discovered.

Should you want to link your david to his second wife, her ID # is 114545825. I have left a note on his grave listing your entry as the true burial site and that grave as a memorial stone only.

RE: Jean Sheilds and Glen Barr
Hi Sheila,

I'm so glad you are not upset that I copied your photos to Find A Grave. Some people get upset. I'm glad people copy stuff from me. With that being said, since you own the photo, please feel free to upload it to their Find A Grave memorial and I'll remove the one I posted. That way YOU will get credit for it. I would feel more comfortable if you did.

I contacted the a relative in Casper, WY, who knew the Fowlers. Mary Louise Marten was married twice. Her first marriage was to Joseph David Barr. They had Glen David Barr. Then Mary and Joseph got divorced and Mary married Theodore Fowler. I was told that Theodore LOVED Glen and vise versa. They had a very close relationship.

I love that you are into family history as well. I'm the only one in my family who is interested. All my cousins come to me to find THEIR family history. I don't mind. I actually LOVE it!

I love Find A Grave because it is free. I have found bad info out there but have found that most people on Find A Grave are very nice and will correct bad data.

Thank you for everything!

RE: Jean Sheilds and Glen Barr
Yes, Glen Barr is related - distantly. I copied the photos from a tree on Ancestry - taby52. I hired a genealogist to get the obits and other info on them.

According to Ancestry, this is how I am related:

stepson of brother-in-law of 1st cousin 1x removed

Sorry about that. Loomis's mother, Margarett, was a sister to my gggm Jemima G. Brown. Jemima married James R. Ritch and their daughter, Joycie Sanders Brown married Theophilus E. Thompson and my maiden name is Thompson. I would love to hear from you even if it is just to say hi.
