RE: more info updates
Hi Matt
I saw that, but there is no location for Henry Urquhart and I can not find the name Bodurant anywhere the Ancestry,com records or Family Search. Another item is there are numerous duplicate memorials on findagrave that appear to have come from different sources, also in the the book on inscriptions it states that the stone is hard to read. I don't like to change anything without definitive proof, so could you put a note on Bodurants memorial that says it might be Urquhart. I can send you photo of the headstone and scan a copy of the page from the book if you would like to see them.You'll see it says the first initials are H and maybe P and Sgt. Co B 38th Ohio, I think the odds are slim that two people have that much in common, but without a clear name and at present no request for a headstone I can't be sure.
Thanks for your help has always

Dunnihoo not Dunniboo
Hi Matt
I got two corrections for Ella Dunniboo, 1 is the first name is Eli A. and 2 the last name is Dunnihoo. This comes from the the 1880 census. Found same misspellings in another source as well. FYI started working on mapping Green Castle So you may see a lot of additions coming your way locations mostly.
Thanks has always

RE: Family Of Walter Fisher
Isn't it nice when the hobby pays off. FYI I have posted 2 documents to memorial 84235577 for Charles H Binkley. It appears he was moved to Memorial Park. One of the documents indicates a military headstone for him was to go there.
Best Regards

Hi Matt
Do to your research and the photo I took of his headstone The Sons of Union Veterans were contacted by the great great niece of Walter Fisher(Old Green Castle)and she was able to visit his grave this Memorial Day. Another family reconnected.

Re: Thomas Locke #95123257
Hello Matt,
I don't know if you're aware of a duplication for Thomas Locke. Someone by the name of Maggie input his F.A.G. #72718819 on July 4, 2011. You input his info on August 10, 2012. How do we go about making this right? Thomas is my 2nd Great Grandfather.
Thank you for your time,
Joy Kettell Clarridge

John Blackwell
Hi Matthew
I have posted a census page for John Blackwell in Old Green Castle that shows his middle initial is L not S and I contacted his family member who has a tree on, They didn't know where he was, so you have reconnected another family.

Daniel Beech
Hi Matt
Daniel has the same date for his birth and death in 1893, but the note says he was in the Civil War. Any ideas?
Thanks for the notes on Walter Fisher " Co K 9 Cavalry" this makes him a Buffalo Soldier, which makes him important to a lot of people.
