You're welcome! I will try to get ahold of whoever administers it (I don't know who that is) and see if I can get a location on the cemetery grounds...I'll let you know if I find anything.

Hello Cousin
Long time no talk, I see that we have a cousin that lives in this area to? The messages below from Hillstew im assuming she is on the Stewart/ Bushman Line, I live next door to the Bushmans she is talking about fixing her car, I have recently been contacted by my Oltmanns/Bushman Cousins and was going to see if you knew them, they are the daughters of Walter and Hazel S. Bushman Oltmanns they are just now getting into find a grave, so I will point them your way to:) Im shocked she was able to get someone at the Wysox county office, I havent been able to do that in 7 years. David and Eve Spangler are in the first section (north) about 8 rows from Otter Creek Road, im pretty sure the stone for Eve is still there, I believe i have photographed it before, but David's is broken if my memory is right, i need to check one of my other computers that has all my files on it.

but if a new member named "dreams" contacts you thats our cousin.

Hope your doing well in Utah, wish I lived there and not Milledgeville IL.

Best Regards

RE: David Bushman Info
Hi! I ended up posting the pictures of the book the county had. I'm going back out there today to see if I can track down his spot even if there isn't a headstone. There are a few other Bushman's out there. (There is also a Bushman that fixes my parents care in Milledgeville, so you see, you probably have a talented long lost cousin you never knew about.:] )

David Bushman Info
Hi, I went to the Bethel cemetery today to try and fulfill some photo requests. I couldn't find David Bushman so I contacted the people at the Wysox Township building. I went over and looked through their book of internments. The book says he is buried in row 8. It also lists his full death date as 7 November 1879, 81 years.

Right above his name is information that I assume is his wife's, Eva and her death date listed as 19 August 1888, 87 years.

There are many headstones that are illegible due to weather and time, I believe that that is the case with this Bushman couple. I will try to go visit it again before I fly home to Utah to double check. If you would like the image of the entry that is in the book of internments, you can message me and I'll send it to you.

Transfer request
Hi Melanie,

I just transferred Margaret Smith to you and had Tropico Gravers transfer William Evans Smith to you. However, you also asked for memorial 8552085, that memorial number is garbled, it's missing a digit, but I have no idea which digit. When you figure out who it is just go to the memorial and hit the edit button and ask for a transfer, Tropico will transfer it to you.

Peggy Redington
Thomas and Mary Humpherys
Hello Melanie, my name is Peggy Kay Redington. I am a third great granddaughter of Thomas and Mary Sudbury Humpherys. I noticed on here yesterday that lady named Kim Smith asked if you were a descendant of theirs and to have you email her she had information on them. I emailed her also because they are my grandparents. She said that she gave you a family bible of theirs from the 1800's. DO you still have it? Can you scan me any information in it and send it to me. I love family history. I am their third great granddaughter through their son John James and through his daughter Mary Louisa and then her son William Milton. Are you also a descendant of theirs. Please email me at I am interested in any information you have on them. Thank you and i Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Phyllis (Porter) Zegers
Fannie Wagner's granddaughter
Hi, Melanie
My name is Phyllis Zegers. From Find-a-Grave I see that you are the great granddaughter of Fannie Reader Wagner. Her daughter Hattie Alys Wagner Zaat had a daughter named Francina Joyce Zaat. I am trying to find genealogical info about Francina. She married George Louis Bates, then married Woodrow Duncan Barber, then I lost track of her. Do you have any info on Fannie's granddaughter?
