RE: Otis Pratt
I have Otis's father being David Pratt Jr. b. 1783, and his mother Sophia b. ca 1785. If my records are correct, then his parents were too young for him to have been born in 1796. Also, the 1850 and 1860 census records indicate Otis was born about 1806. Are you sure the headstone doesn't day 57 yrs. 27 ds.?

Thank you skye for transferring the information on my mom to my account. That means a lot to me. I can understand why you are doing this, once you explained it to me. Guess I made a wrong assumption, thinking that any family would do this for their loved one. Appreciate having an answer back.

First off, who are you? Second, where do you get your information from?

This is my mother, she passed away 29 Jan 2017. My mother isn't even buried yet and won't be until later this summer. If I sound upset that you posted this, I am. If you are a family member, forgive me. If you are not, doesn't seem like you should be able to do this. This should be left up to the family.

My family and I have been working on our genealogy for 40 years just to find out who we are and what we are made of.

We just discovered one of her sisters who passed away in 1914 just the other day.

It makes me even more upset that you can't even give up your identity but you take it upon yourself to list information of an entire family.

I am her namesake - Mom's name is Anna Louise Svonavec Collins. I was named after her and you don't even have her name listed properly.

RE: Alice Korver Heinz
I went back through to double-check on the years. I crossed lines with her sister, Ethel. Alice's birth date is 23 Oct 1892.

The date I had entered was taken from the Ohio Birth Records.

RE: Julia Hunter
Hi Skye;

Julia A Simmons is the wife of Alex Hunter, my 1st cousin, 4 X removed. She was born c1838 and died Feb 8, 1865. If you take the 1838 and add the 26 years you will see that is c 1865, not 1855. She wed Alex Hunter c1855 and had two children; Lyman in 1856 and Elmer Ellsworth in 1863. You can find Julia with her husband Alex and Lyman in the 1860 census in West Salem Twp., Mercer County, PA, family #615. After she died, Alex married 2nd, Margaret Sadler and began having children with her in 1867.

This is just one of the MANY times I've seen the stonecutter cut a number wrong on a gravestone. That's not counting when they only cut the year of birth and death and round it up.

Lucinda Fobes md James Sirrine
Greetings--Do you have any info as to this couple? Lucinda b 5 Dec 1846 OH md 1866. Data from Descendants of Nathan & Rebecca Fobes of Wayne Twp, Ashtabula Co OH. I am interested in James and his parents. 1880 census has them in Erie Co PA with his parents born in France, which I do not believe true. James was born in NY. I find no other record. Any help greatly appreciated.

Thats My Cuz
Explanation of the name edit I sent:

Melchiori is the last name of her step-father not her father. Her mother and father were divorced. Her mother and step-father married when Barb was an adult.
