RE: Benjamin Franklin Gann
Hello Darrell,

Wow, guess my age is showing !!

I should have typed Caroline McKinnon, #99854116.

She is buried in McKendree Cemetery, Lafayette Co., MO.

If you have any other Ganns whom you would want to transfer, I would be happy to have them.

Benjamin Franklin Gann
Hello Derrill,

Many thanks for posting.

May I suggest a change?

Benjamin Franklin Gann was NOT the son of Oliver clark Gann and his wife, Susannah Margaret Green.

Benjamin married their daughter, Ruth Amanda Gann on 12 SEp 1869 in Odessa.

Benjamin is the son of Thomas Gann and his wife, Rebecca, whose maiden name is unknown.

As you may know, several people have posted this incorrect relationship. Since I am the 2nd great grandson of Oliver, I have been searching his entire fmaily for many years....I am now 86 and still going sstrong!!

The proof for my statements comes from Oliver's Bible and from his last will and testament in which he names Ruth Amanda as his daughter.

I hope my comments will not offend you in any way.

Helen M {Fock} Suhr
Helen was born 1842 Germany. Married a Suhr ( John Henry, the first ), on find a grave you have her spouse as John Henry Suhr Born 1878. John 1878 was her son, not her spouse. Helen was 36 when John 1878 was born, I doubt she waited for him to grown up and then marry him. I would say he is her son. Possible with John Suhr Sr. could you please fix this error. Thanks a bunch. Vicki Jones 5/7/2017

Chester Dale Campbell
Dear Derrill,

Thank you so much for putting up the listing for my great uncle Chester Dale Campbell who died of his wounds on Okinawa at the end of WWII.

On the listing you have his date of death as May 20, 1945. Please be aware that the date of May 22, 1945 that is on his headstone is the correct date and matches military records I found.

Also, thank you kindly for taking and posting the photograph. I am so far away and may not get the opportunity to visit his burial sight.

I am related to Dale through his mother, who was my grandfather's sister.

Again, thank you.

Penny (Jennings) Taylor, Los Angeles, CA

Martin V. White #94571693
Can you tell me anything about the above Martin White? I'm researching my 3rd great-grandfather, Elder Martin White #50298335 and find it interesting that this Martin White is buried in the same cemetery that Capt. Samuel Boone, a relative, is buried in also and that both are from Kentucky.
